    I used createinstallmedia in the Install macOS High Sierra.app to create an install disk using a portable hard disk, and make a Clover boot disk using another usb device. Here are the problems I encountered:
    1. When I successfully boot the install disk, the internal disks weren't shown in the Disk Utility.app
    2. When I put SATA-100-series-unsupported.kext or SATA-RAID-unsupported.kext in the kexts\Other , the install disk won't be shown in the clover.

    Specifications:
    Code:
    Laptop Name: HP OMEN 15-dc0013tx
    CPU: i7-8750H
    Audio: ALC295
    GPU: GTX1066
    Hard Disks:
    M.2 NVMe SSD 120G
    SATA 1TB(Maybe RAID? No options in the BIOS)
    Ethernet: Realtek RTL8111
    
    And here's the CLOVER folder

    "Problem Reporting" files are incomplete (you forgot to press F2 and F4).
    Read FAQ, "Problem Reporting" again. Carefully. Attach all requested files/output.

    Sorry. Here is the new zip file.
    And another question:
    When I managed to boot the installtion disk, tons of "ACPI Error" continiously showed up so anything useful for debugging and troubleshooting couldn't be caught, what should I do? Now Clover can't recognize the installtion disk so I can't take a photo of that verbose boot.

    Your SATA controller is in RAID mode.
    If you have NVMe SSD, you will need to change it to AHCI.
    If you have SATA SSD, you can use SATA-RAID-unsupported.kext.

    See guide for correct version of Clover and drivers64UEFI setup:

    Thank you. I found the reason why install disk won't show is that I used a USB 3.0 disk so clover didn't recognize it. I used a USB 2 disk and it showed up although only USB 3 ports are provided on this laptop.
    As for the internal disk, the kext (SATA-RAID-unsupported.kext) really helped. But the external USB hard drive became an internal drive, was it caused by the kext?
    Thank you for your help.

    And here's my DSDT... I suffered from unexpected PARSEOP_LOCAL0 and PARSEOP_LOCAL2. Found it caused by wrongly getting DSDT. But I think I'm doing it right...
    PLZ help!

    See USB guide:

    You should disassemble with: iasl -dl DSDT.aml SSDT*.aml

    Got it working, thanks for your instruction!
    But here's few more problems.
    I followed the guide https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/guide-how-to-patch-dsdt-for-working-battery-status.116102/ to get the battery working, and I also find HP G6 2221 ss patch exactly fit into my DSDT. However, the patch seemed only dealt with the BIOS problem (When powering on, BIOS says the battery is not the genuine battery, and charing is disabled.). In macOS, Preferences -> Energy Saver, Current battery charge is 0%, and when I check "Show battery status in menu bar", it immediately becomes unchecked.
    Please help me, thank you!

    The attachment includes output from
    Code:
    kextstat|grep -y acpiplat
    kextstat|grep -y appleintelcpu
    kextstat|grep -y applelpc
    sudo touch /System/Library/Extensions && sudo kextcache -u /
    patchmatic -extract
    And also the CLOVER.zip
    BTW, I installed the ACPIBatteryManager.kext into S/L/E, but it still doesn't respond to me...

    Code:
    ACPI Error: Method parse/execution failed [\_SB.BAT0._BST] Node(ffffff80365d3ea0), AE_NOT_FOUND (20160930/psparse-632)

    [_BIF] @0002E #002D:
    No Local Variables are initialized for method [_BIF]
    CLOVER.zip, dsdt and so on are at #9 reply.
