All, I've greatly benefitted from all the posts to tonymacx86 over several Hackintosh builds. After combining advice from several posters I got OS X Catalina successfully installed on an Alienware 17 R3. What works: everything except the network card (not surprised) and I still have sleep issues. This is not the cleanest EFI folder and there are probably unnecessary kexts. This boots with full HD530 video acceleration as well. Good luck fellow Hackintoshers! Used unibeast to make the installer and clover configurator to add the modified EFI directory.

Have you tried this driver for the network card?
