there are 2 options already in place if you are unable to disable CFG lock

there are also a few patches in the config.plist if you are unable to to set DVMT to 64MB
Yes, dvmt has a solution! But yoga s740 can solve the stone memory problem by modifying the dvmt setting to 160M through ru.efi! And my github efi hasn't been updated for a long time because there is no new progress in sleep! Aoac sleep is a big problem, and bios has no related settings! After using my github's efi installation system, it is best to reconfigure according to your own requirements

okay, i will repeat, just to be sure, that moderators are doing super strange things - https://dortania.github.io/OpenCore-Install-Guide/

it's the best guide for an ice lake laptop, if you really want to understand what you are doing
Because my github is efi a long time ago! In the meantime, "firewolf" repaired the dvmt (for the problem that the default dvmt of icl is 60M). I don't think it will affect my use and the settings will not be updated. Modifying the dvmt is beneficial and can prevent some future problems!

omg im giving up haha, i tried basically everything and it never gets past the first loading. I tried your guide and bunch of others , tried fileds in the thread too.
My only hope is someone uploads their working EFI.

Maybe its impossible without CFG bios edit ?

Funny thing, yesterday i was doing this for fun, i wanted to try MacOS.

Today my Uni professor made it a requirement to build iOS Swift APP in order to pass. So now i MUST try and succeed or buy macbook.

Later today ill try again , follow your guide again and do my best to succeed , ill upload OC folder that gives me most success.

Thank you so much for taking intrest in helping me !

EDIT:
Is there any guide around for the CFG Lock , i should definitely do that too

if you don't have the option for CFG lock then you can mod your BIOS, or enable AppleCpuPmCfgLock and AppleXcpmCfgLock
