Hello, I recently have hackintoshed my HP Pavillion Power 15 and I have a question with the kexts.

I have seen than some people use FakeSMC and others VirtualSMC. If someone knows anything which one should I use, pleasw tell me.

Also which kexts do you recommend me yo use.

Thank you very much, and have an awesome day!

Personally i use VirtualSMC because it has a satellite kext that manage my battery without worring to hotpach my DSDT. I started my actual hackintosh with FakeSMC but and then switched to VirtualSMC and haven't see a different in terms of performance. But the battery kext is a big plus for me to VirtualSMC

Woh, I am going to try that, because I was trying the DSDT with FakeSMC but I will try the VirtualSMC, for the battery. Can you tell me how you did it, the password I mean. Thank you

Oh no sorry the corrector. I installed VirtualSMC with all the sensor in the /S/L/E/ Folder but the Virtual SMC in Clover, and it is not working still. Do I have to patched the DSDT or not? I attached what I can see in the system information for power.

Thank you for your answer :)

ALL your 3rd party kexts belong in /Library/Extensions including VirutalSMC

and keep essential in clover

you will find you have duplicate kexts in both places which is fine

Ok thank you, but it doesn't work. I will upload my laptop and all that and if you want the EFI folder also. Everything works awesome except the brightness and the power.
