Hi all,
I am trying to get a ZBook running on opencore. I have had a lot of success and the only major items left are RTC BIOS resetting and trackpad (scrolling). I will include an Opencore 0.6.2 EFI folder to help anyone willing to try a Catalina 10.15.7 install. I used the rehabman HP guide for all the BIOS and other general advice. Let me know what you come up with. Do kexts, drivers, SSDT's need to be added or removed? I wish Rehabman's guide could be easily translated to opencore.

ps.
Thanks to: Rehabman, moh.96 the bat man.

SMCBatteryManager.kext would help

also have a read up on this if the kext above doesn't work on it's own

Ok, I added that in the kexts folder and made the config.plist entry. It is still not working. I will study the battery patch thread. Thank you Feartech.

OP EFI folder has been updated now with working battery!
The issues are now RTC BIOS resetting and trackpad scrolling not functioning.
Try Kernel/quirks DisableRtcChecksum = True For RTC Bios resetting

Here is the RTC problem:
Code:
Device (RTC)
                {
                    Name (_HID, EisaId ("PNP0B00") /* AT Real-Time Clock */)  // _HID: Hardware ID
                    Name (_CRS, ResourceTemplate ()  // _CRS: Current Resource Settings
                    {
                        IO (Decode16,
                            0x0070,             // Range Minimum
                            0x0070,             // Range Maximum
                            0x01,               // Alignment
                            0x08,               // Length
                            )
                        IRQNoFlags ()
                            {}
                    })
                }

That 0x08 needs to be 0x02

and my ssdt-rtc is not making the change.
