with config.plist (from your github HD620 config), kernel panics.

As per guide, you must use an invalid ig-platform-id for the case that DVMT-prealloc is set incorrectly.

Note: SATA-100-series-unsupported.kext is missing from Clover/kexts/Other. And you will likely also need IntelGraphicsFixup.kext+Lilu.kext. Suggest you use AptioMemoryFix.efi instead of OsxAptioFixDrv-64.efi+EmuVaraibleUefi-64.efi in drivers64UEFI.

Read the guide carefully:

Using FakePCIID+FakePCIID_IntelGraphics fixes the issue. Thanks so much!

I'll read the guide regarding Aptio.kext. Now I'm trying to boot from internal SSD (with windows 10 installed).. Clover isn't quite happy as it cannot change the volume. Let me see ....

No idea what you mean by "Clover... cannot change the volume"?
You're expecting audio controls in Clover???

When installing Clover, and clicking on "select installation destination", and press on Windows (NTFS volume), Clover installer will just refuse and give the reason "cannot change that volume"

I think EasyUEFI on windows is probably the solution (despite it requires a license key), and also probably I need a Ubuntu on USB disk to use efibootmgr to change the EFI volume so that I can add an entry to point to PreLoader.efi.

And forgot to mention: @RehabMan you are but AWESOME!

Side issue.... Trackpad is now working. However, right click is temperamental (ie sometimes works, and most of the times doesn't). What I mean by working is: double finger on the track pad and clickiing on the bottom edge.

Clover install target is always your macOS/OS X system volume, not Windows.

Two finger tap for right click has no location dependency.

Oh yes it sure does have LOCATION DEPENDENCY!

two finger click on the bottom DO work on the bottom edge, however when putting two fingers on the trackpad and then use the thumb to click the bottom edge button, nothing showed up. I believe the two finger PLUS button click is the mac way of right-clicking?

You're trying to use three fingers (two fingers + thumb).
It doesn't work that way.
Two fingers is two fingers, not three.

Note: If I remember correctly, my driver interprets three fingers + click as "middle click".

I believe your driver is correct in the way you designed it. However two finger + thumb (three fingers) is the way macbook handles right clicking...

Anyway awesome work you have done implmenting the driver!
