SSD Samsung 970 PRO 512GB PCIe x4 NVMe

Noctua NH-D15
SeaSonic Prime Platinum 1300W

I recall Clover Configurator had some updates to the firmware features defined for SMBIOS 19,x.
I'm using 19,1 from before these updates. My current Firmware Features are 0xFD8FF576, Firmware Feature Mask 0xFF1FFF3F and Platform Feature 0x00.
If I select the newest 19,1 SMBIOS they change to Firmware Feature Mask 0xFFDFFF7F, Platform Feature 0x22.

Should I update this? What are the benefits? It generates a new serial number when I do the change also. Will that screw my account/imessage etc?

I don't know if there's enough room under the shroud, but if there is, you can use an Apple made BCM94360CS2 with adaptor to replace the existing Wi-Fi/Bluetooth card.

If there isn't enough room, you can use Dell DW1560 and replace the existing Wi-Fi/Bluetooth card. The DW1560 will require a few kexts but is proven to work well with hackintoshes.

You can just copy and paste the new code to your existing config.plist so you don't have to use a new serial.

I have been trying to get my SMBIOS changed to 19.2 or 19.1 but my clover configurator doesn't show any options past 18.3

I have an i7 8700K with Aorus Pro Z390 motherboard. I think these wold fit the criteria of the 19.2 SMBIOS

any suggestions would be much appreciated!

clover 5098 latest
configurator 5.6.2.0

I had the same issue when I switched to imac 19.2. The problem was that the USBinjectall.kext didnt have The 19.2 SMBIOS in the info.plist

I followed this guide to make a working usb.kext. It worked great for me.

I just did it like that and swopped over to iMac Pro 1,1 after that iMessages, Facetime and Handoff stopped working. Even when I tried the older 19.1 iMac and did a the fix iMessage guide, got a brand new serial. Nothing works so far.

And I just did it because one day the hackMac didn't show any picture after waking up and a couple of guys wrote that this behavior comes from the iGPU. Use Handoff and messages a lot and that sux at the moment that it does not work. I also cannot unlock macOS with the watch. So something is really crooked. Will do a complete reinstall (whipping everything) tomorrow, so hopefully it will work then again.

Assuming you kept everything else the same, changing "Firmware Features" and "Firmware Features Mask" should have no affect on Messages, FaceTime, or Handoff.

If Preview and Quick Look was working and suddenly broke one day, even before changing Firmware Features and Firmware Features Mask, your problems probably lie elsewhere.

I had a similar issue on my iHacPro. what you are describing seems to be UUID issue. Make sure clover converts your custom uuid, and if switching smbios, you should change UUID as well. I don't think the same uuid would work across different smbios
