Has anyone else run into the problem where boot stalls at gIOScreenLockState 3 using bravariancake's EFI? I know from searching this site it's a graphics problem, but I can't figure out why I'm getting it with this EFI. I thought it was already configured to use the Intel graphics and disable the Nvidia graphics. Screen shot attached for what it's worth. I'm on Catalina 15.2

Catalina can require updated kexts, do you have the latest versions? The ones in the EFI folder are 6 months old. If not update WEG and Lilu in your USB EFI folder and try again.

Yep, I made sure I have the latest version of all the kexts.

Hmmm. I've got a different model but the LuletterSoul EFI folder worked great for me. I've got USBc/ Thunderbolt working as well.

I found there were a couple of old kexts in my /L/E/ directory that I think were conflicting with some kexts in my EFI clover kexts directory. After deleting the old ones, everything seems to be working now.

There you go, one location or another.

Clean install of Catalina 10.15.3 w/bavariancake EFI last night. Works fantastic, very smooth and rock solid so far. Thanks everyone!

I have xps 9570 i7 8750, 32gb RAM, 2tb nvme 4k. I installed Catalina 10.15.3 using bavariancake EFI. All hardware is working perfect except touchscreen and thunderbolt. Thunderbolt is works but hotplug isnt working and when i opened system report, i couldnt see any thunderbolt device (hotplug or not). I attached my debug file. Thank you all.

I'm not sure about your touch screen but that is typical behavior for Thunderbolt. It must be set to Legacy Mode in the bios and hot plug will not work, the device must be plugged in at boot up to be recognized. There is some work ongoing to make it hot pluggable, you can search GitHub, but recent results center around 300 series chipsets.

Here is one interesting thread about touch screens that might get you going in the right direction. https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/touch-screen.231819/

I will look at the suggested site you post.
Thank you.
