Its enabled in BIOS.
Its the same motherboard in a bigger chassis but I might be wrong. Anyway, what fixed your sound?

Never mind. I’ve done a reasonably vanilla install of High Sierra on Optiplex 7040MT. Sound worked like a charm. Reason to install High Sierra was to make sure my nvidia GTX 1060 works. Wouldn’t have been possible with Mojave or Catalina.

Would this EFI and config.plist work for Catalina? I have the same machine and I'm getting LocHB 71B4903C-14EC-42C4-BDC6-CE1449930E49 error. Any idea how to resolve this?

Hi guys,

this is my first time I try to get an hackintosh. I read several guides and this thread a lot of time!
I have Dell Optiplex 3040 Micro:
i5-6500T
8GB RAM
240GB SSD
HD 530

Hardware is similar to previous post so I used in order
1. Unibeast 10.2.0 to create USB stick with Catalina 10.15.5
2. I added kext of #65 to my EFI folder and replaced config.plist
3. RAM is in the upper slot
4. To boot I inserted USB stick in the USB 2.0 port
5. BIOS configuration is the same of post #1 (bios version 1.11.3 latest update)

I use a USB receiver for both keyboard and mouse

In attachment the error and the EFI folder
Can anyone help me to fix the error?

I've done like you write but the problem in starting installation still remain.
Can you tell me your BIOS configuration? Maybe the problem is there...

solution
1. Update clove to the latest version
2. Make all KEXT the latest version
3. Recreate and install USB boot disk with catarina 10.15.4
4. Reinitialize HDD with APFS format
5. Create a USB boot disk with clover.

If this procedure does not solve the problem, it is impossible to propose that there is no actual machine.
I don't think it's a BIOS issue.
We recommend that you install the proven catalina 10.15.4. There is information that the operation becomes slow and freezes when upgrading from 10.15.4 to 10.15.5.

Good luck
