Actually I never used it... I have already Mojave installed... I will try it however.

Typically required for proper SATA drivers to load.

That is shown, when I try to run installed Mojave. The first post I wrote is wrong since I forgot about DSDT

Must always attach EFI/Clover that produces verbose boot photo.
And is that where it stopped?

Here is my EFI from my actual drive, now without DSDT. Yes, that is where it gets stuck. Nothing happen afterwards

MESSAGE ABOVE IS WRONG
So, again I deleted the Airport Fix from config.plist
I could boot, but no card was listed in PCI
But then I realised the card was not properly sitting in the slot. After reboot somewhere in the load process the screen just dies slowly. Something is wrong that affects the graphics...
When I boot in verbose mode, I get Airport.BrcmNIC Panic. I have really no idea, what is really the problem. Feels like the card causes thousand problems

You should not use any "Airport Fix" in config.plist.

Yes, as I wrote in previous message, I got rid of the fix, but got a slowly dying screen (slowly fading colours) and in verbose Airport.BrcmNic Panic

I didn't understand well in what case we must pach DSDT/SSDTS.
Is it usefull only when we got errors at boot ?
Does it replace the kext fix ?

Most laptops will need some of the "common" ACPI patches to fix various issues.
