You can't imagine how much patches I tried. ALL that exist ...
I've never had a better picture over this until now.

Changed the priority to the port - external gpu disabled, hotplug reboot fix enabled, HDMI infinite loop fix enabled...

I have enabled HDMI 2.0 - i connected 4K TV and works.

But all that works perfectly only with full UEFI in BIOS.

Otherwise it does nothing but reboot itself.
I'm trying this folder as EFI for the Z50-70. The system boots and works well (enabling legacy in the bios) but opening chrome or any microsoft apps I have glitches on the internal display. I'm restricted with apple only apps to avoid glitches. This is a problem I had from May when I sadly had to format the hack, previously I was using clover and I had no problem but with the reinstall clover stopped to work well and I don't know why.
I tried also to modify the config to boot every time in verbose (adding "-v" in boot-args) but, even if the change is recorded in the file, the system still boots not in verbose.
Sincerely I'm loosing the hope to make the system work again in Catalina, I'm tempted to go back to Mojave even if I don't want to.

Hi guys,

I got a recent problem but I don't know where it comes from and I was afraid it might be a hardware issue but here it is :
I've been stuck for a while, like one time out of two, on the apple logo after some reboot or just turning on the computer. Once I tried on verbose, It showed nothing other than the black screen and half a ligne of ++++ and nothing else happen unless I shut it down... I'm running El Capitan and using DW1830 card.

I've benn looking over the web, tried multiple time machine versin of my working OS but no changes... I really thought I had a problem with my hardware when it didn't want to boot anymore untill yesterday, I donno why but I tried and manage to boot.

Here is my debug report + attached files :

you are missing either:
OsxAptioFixDrv, OsxAptioFix2Drv, OsxAptioFix3Drv or AptioMemoryFix.efi

in drivers/UEFI

or drivers64UEFI

(depending on what version of clover you are running)

config.plist:
<key>ProductName 2</key>

should be:
<key>ProductName</key>

liluhelper you create yourself, only needed if you have your kexts in /L/E and to be honest, it only sorts them in an order so probably an update would not really be needed

oh, I was thinking about how it got there...so do you think its safe to remove it if I don't have any kext in L/E? I installed my macOS from the start only by using kexts in /Other folder.

delete it then as it is not recommend to use in clover and will cause issues

Currently, I'm running on 10.15.3. Everything is running smoothly except TouchBar. Even wifi is working without whitelist BIOS. Now I want to update to 10.15.6, the update is downloaded but it is not being installed. Whenever I tried to install always system do some progress and then restart and then it will boot as it was before. I have 60GB + free disk space.

Can anyone help me to solve this? Which kind of other info can I provide for a better solution?
