Hi,
OS: 10.13 beta
SMBIOS: MacBook Pro 14,3

I have laptop Asus UX430UA and trackpad has ELAN:fingerprint device.
In System Profiler it shows device and in IOREG there is information about this.

I tried find something in google but there is no information about this.

Is there any chance to enable Touch ID on hackintosh for authentication?

Thank you

No.
Your best course of action is to simply disable the port it is attached to (power savings).

ok, i red guide but i'm to lazy to create map for all ports so i found that i can disable it via boot args in Clover
I've added to clover bootloader
Code:
uia_exclude=HS09;
because fingerprint was on HS09.
It looks fine now(system does not see that device now)

Is it correct ?
The correct way is with the guide.

i understand, you're right probably i will do this later but if i disabled port via boot args it means that fingerprint device now does not consuming power, right?(it's not recognised so it's turned off?)

Thx

No way for me to tell what you're doing without "Problem Reporting" files, as per FAQ.

ok, files attached

As i wrote ELAN:fingerprint device was on HS09, so i added to clover boot args exclude
Code:
uia_exclude=HS09;
and now i don't see that device on the list so as i think it's turned off and not consuming power, right?

Yes, HS09 is gone due to USBInjectAll.kext and kernel flag uia_exclude=HS09.
But your USB configuration is still wrong (wrong UsbConnector values and exceeding the 15-port limit).
