and

can you help me find wrong setting in my config。thank you for help

Seems all set and everything working concerning HDEF, GFX0 and HDAU.. no idea what is your issue now..

BTW.. you still need to enable _OSI -> XOSI, EC0_ -> EC__ and H_EC -> EC__ in your config.plist and you should disable _xcpm_cpuid_set_info © Pike R. Alpha.

Also try to fix your SSDT-nvme.aml. It is not properly implemented!

@kgp if @ywz306 would have flashed my edited bios, used my EFI folder with the changes for his cpu, etc. He would have a fully working system. I gave him the car and the keys to it...

I know.. but you should have explained him each step in detail. You can still do that if you want.. ;)

But I guess, despite few remaining inconsistencies, his system now seems to work. You can also only help him now in removing remaining incosistencies. Up to you, my friend ;)

@ywz306, @JamesKI will now help you with remaining issues. I am off this topic. I already tried to help as much as possible.

Good look, guys!

There might be just marginal differences between the two boards. @JamesKI anyway wants to help you in your issues. I do not want to further interfere in this case.

Good luck,
