Thank you Stork. I planning doing it with Clover because I have no time to learn OpenCore. Clover is ok right?

Yes. I've been using OpenCore for a while now so I can't provide any help with the latest Clover versions. @pastrychef might be able to help.

Clover is fine for Catalina. Once you get to Big Sur it makes more sense to use OpenCore instead. So if you have no time to learn OC then just use Clover and Catalina for the time being.

Clover versions past 5124 have borrowed a lot from OC to make it possible to use with BS and it does add more complexity to configuring those newer Clover versions, as the OP Stork has mentioned here.

I'm reading the Opencore page right now. Maybe I'll try it. Thank you all for the advice!

I have three machines using Opencore now, the switch from Clover was worth it. Take your time and read through the Dortania guide.

You can try the Clover EFI from my Z370 build (link is below in my signature).

You will have to provide your own USB fix for your motherboard.

I decide to go with OpenCore after reading the guide. I will do it next weekend, first I have check what I did last time with the USB ports. I mapped them but think maybe I didn't do a great job because now I see lot more than 15 ports on Hackintool. As I remember the ASM2142 they stay out of the 15 ports count right? I mean I leave them activated + 15 ports?

Regards

I'm correcting myself. My ports are correct the 8 PXSX ports confuse me, but this are the ASM2142 ports. I have 15 XHC ports. So I think I can use my actual USB Kext on my new install.

IIRC, we only have to limit the Intel USB chipset to 15 ports. We can ignore mapping the ASM chipset ports.
