Yet DSDT indicates H_EC as per guide - when a fake EC is needed because computer do not have active embedded controller :
Device (H_EC)
{
Name (_HID, EisaId ("PNP0C09")) // _HID: Hardware ID
Name (_UID, One) // _UID: Unique ID
Method (_STA, 0, NotSerialized) // _STA: Status
{
Store (0x03, ^^^GFX0.CLID)
Return (Zero)
}
Maybe when you rename EC0 the KP come because appleBusPowerController fails to load - simply because embedded controller is not active on your desktop
Explanation by experts on the forum would be interesting if they can read your PR post !
Indeed, that is what I meant to say (sorry). Since it is returning Zero, I essentially do not have a H_EC is what I meant to say previously.

But EC0 does not return Zero in the Method _STA, hence I thought it might be active.

Should I go ahead and install the Fake EC SSDT do you think and call it a day?

Sorry not to have answer.
on post #761 RehabMan indicates that renaming ECO is adequate for a laptop case where both H_EC (inactive) and EC0 are presents
Why your rename caused a KP on your desktop requires more expert than me...
