only Replace my EFI Folder ?
i will try it .

And did you deactivate the onboard wifi card in your Clover Efi ?
Cause I replace this card with a working Mac OS Card but I can't see anything ...
Yes I did. You'll have to remove my usbports.kext
I disabled port 14, which is the onboard wifi. I know the address is 0x0D, but I can't remember what the code is in the kext.

Here you go. This one has HS14 enabled, but I took out HS3 to keep it at the 15 port limit. On the first post of this thread I have a breakdown of all the USB connections.

I've been working a bit on this setup. I now have a 20s boot time. Not as fast as a real Mac or Win10, but it's much quicker than it has been, ever, lol.

I've also disabled the CFG Lock (MSR). I followed the guide here. Quick and dirty though, you don't have to follow the guide to the T. If you are running F11 bios (I updated just for this, lol), then all you have to do is go straight to patching.

1. Download GRUB (here)
2. Take a USB drive and format it fat32 (or use any EFI drive).
3. Rename ModGRUBSHELL.efi to bootx64.efi Place the GRUB file in /EFI/BOOT/
4. Reboot to that drive.
5. type "setup_var_3 0x5C1" and verify it says either 0x01 or 0x1
6. type "setup_var_3 0x5C1 0x00" or "setup_var_3 0x5C1 0x0" depending on what it said in the previous step (mine was 0x01)
7. type "setup_var_3 0x5C1" and verify the change has taken effect.
8. Reboot back to your normal setup.

Another way to Verify is with Hackintool / Tools / Click the Intel Logo at the bottom.
While you are in Hackintool, go ahead and enable HWP :)

Another thing I did that has seemed to speed up the system, is I've copied all of my Kexts to /Library/Extensions. Hackintool will automate it under the tools and the 2nd to the right lego. It'll say unsigned at the end, but that's ok. Our kexts still work. I am loading none of them through OpenCore and it is booting up just fine :D. I left the kexts on the EFI drive though, so that Hackintool can tell me if they are old.

In the folder you will see an unused .aml file. That is for Designare systems or any system with Thunderbolt 3 cards added. You'll have to add SSDT-TB3HP.aml to the Config file yourself.

All of the Kexts are not loaded in the Config of this package. Don't boot this before loading these kexts into your system folder. You can always enable them using XCode to edit the config.plist

USBPorts.kext (FerVlucht can use USBPorts with HS14.kext )
VirtualSMC.kext
Lilu.kext
WhateverGreen.kext
IntelMausiEthernet.kext
AppleALC.kext
Designare systems, I think you'll need this one as well. SmallTreeIntel82576.kext

Special thanks to the builds of Glasgod, AudioGod, and CaseySJ.

Finally have a good option for temperature monitoring (both CPU and GPU) that doesn't require FakeSMC (which I can't get to work with OpenCore). HWMonitorSMC2 v.2.5.0. I got it from Github
You have to build it yourself. I'm attaching my copy that I built in Xcode.

Hey Thank you for all the information, I am building almost the same system and was wondering if you would be able to post your latest config here for me to download? only differences being that I am going to have a Gigabyte Vega 56. Would you be able to do this? Thanks!!!

My latest Clover build is in the first post.
My latest Opencore build is attached.

The config.plist is empty. Is this normal?

It's not Clover, this is OpenCore, so if you are opening it via Clover Configurator, you will have to go down to text view. Try my other EFI as I changed some things up including kernel panic stops. Post #66

I think that one was stopping on your network setup. Do you have to load a kext for your Wifi? I don't, so no kexts are in the folder for that. Any kext that you add to the folder has to be added to the config file. The best way to open is honestly using X-Code, not Clover Config.

Kexts are loaded under Kernel
.efi files are under UEFI
.aml files are loaded through ACPI
