Here is an updated Clover setup with mostly everything working. I did not change the wifi card, so I did not test that. DGPU not working, not currently supported. but is disabled using SSDT-DDGPU
Sleep works fine with the occasional black screen on wake. Yes backlight control has been implemented.
USB-C and Thunderbolt works but when in use, it will enable the DGPU
that's it enjoy. all required files are attached.
Hello, iTech. Your updated Clover setup is indeed better than the first, which eventually completely stopped working for me under all scenarios. Now I am able to consistently boot the installer and attempt to install. The installer is able to copy its install files onto the SSD partition, but upon reboot gets stuck with "14 minutes to go", and then quits.

I also tried booting the cloned partition of Mojave, and attached are the verbose texts. Also attached is my original DSDT.aml generated by Clover into the origin folder after pressing F4, in case it can be of any use. Help please, and many thanks.

Make sure there is no dsdt in the clover->acpi->patch folder in the efi partition of your installer. You may also want to use a cpufake-id since I do not think there are any macs with the cpu that you have.

An unexpected twist... @itech, your clover installer is in fact almost perfect. Good thing I recalled reading about Samsung EVO Plus as not being compatible with Mac. As it turns out, my SSD (MZVLB1T0HALR-00000 Samsung PM981 Polaris 1TB) is the OEM equivalent of EVO Plus. (Seems like nowadays the latest and the greatest work in Windows but not in macOS.) After I swapped it out with a Samsung EVO, all problems are gone. I was able to boot up not only a cloned Mojave partition but also a cloned High Sierra partition.

Only issues now are no audio in High Sierra and no keyboard backlight for both. Otherwise, all else work, and I thank you for your excellent work, saving me a lot of grief.

Cheers!

Glad to hear it all worked out, I have yet to to fix keyboard backlight on my system. Have you tried using voodoohda for sound on high Sierra?

Yes, I have done exactly as you expected, now using voodoohda in High Sierra. Am looking forward to your keyboard backlight fix to complete this laptop hackintosh.

I will start working on it sometimes this week, can I ask why you are using high Sierra instead of Mojave?

My desktop PC's DGPU is Nvidia GTX 1080, which has been great for all versions of hackintosh until Apple refused to OK Nvidia web drivers for Mojave. In fact I have not yet fully figured out how to use my desktop's IGPU on Mojave. This problem got worse for me when I bought this MSI laptop because there are no RTX drivers for any hackintosh, so absolutely needed to use IGPU, until luckily I stumbled upon your post. In short, I'm still more comfortable and familiar with High Sierra.

I was able to get the brightness control keys working by following the "Brightness key" section of Patching DSDT/SSDT for LAPTOP backlight control by Rehabman. The implementation is not perfect as I am having an issue where when I press the key, the backlight goes down by 3 bars. I have attempted another backlight configuration in hopes of resolving the issue, Laptop backlight control using AppleBacklightFixup.kext by Rehabman, but the issue with the key press remains. Anyway to implement the Brightness keys, you would need to find the ACPI scancode being used by those keys. Instructions are in the guide mentioned but you can use the uploaded SSDT-Brightness.aml in your EFI->Clover->ACPI->Patched folder and add the following patch to clover ACPI Patches Considering your ACPI Scancode for Brightness up is QB8 and Down is QB7:

Comment: change Method(_QB7,0,N) to XQB7 Find: 5F514237 00 Replace: 58514237 00
Comment: change Method(_QB8,0,N) to XQB8 Find: 5F514238 00 Replace: 58514238 00

I have included the SSDT-Brightness.dsl in case you have to change the keys, the change would need to be made to both the ACPI patch and the SSDT file.

I hope this helps anyone with a similar system and once again Big thanks to Rehabman for his wonderful guide and time, and also big thanks to the moderators and the community.

Thanks for this, but I take it that this is to control screen brightness. I assume you're still working on a fix for keyboard lighting and am looking forward to it.

By the way, your clover installer also works on Mojave 10.14.5.

What issues are you having with the keyboard backlight, because my keayboard backlight brightness keys work fine, I just cannot change the profile color out side of windows.
