    @Snikii of course! A couple things. Rename patches are frowned on with OC. Someone here with a more articulate answer can fill in the blanks here but the short of it all is that they cause problems and should be avoided. I would go through and figure out which ones are actually necessary and then find some help here about how to make or find a patch for them. I don't know much about laptops here but for pure lucks sake try setting LegacyEnable to YES. You should join the InsanelHack Discord. There is a channel there for OpenCore Laptops. Best of luck to ya. Report back with some progress!

    @dracoflar, im looking back on an old comment about how my hardware shouldn't need a DSM>XDSM patch. How can I confirm this?

    @matgeo it's a good feeling slimming things down.

    First off, you're the jam. I nabbed WxH from the doc but I must have misunderstood what it meant...and now I'm seeing that it's Width by Height. Dammit. Wow. Just wow.

    Im right there with you on wanting things right, even if it's cosmetic. I get caught up once a week in getting thunderbolt completely native. Im no help to anyone on it but sure as hell try. This might be for move like a dev @Pavo

    @macprodude you might be right. Wanna try changing your UIscale to 01 in NVRAM?

    @macprodude do you mind sending your config?

    Have you tried changing to Resolution in Boot Properties to Wxh (section 8.3 in the doc https://github.com/acidanthera/OpenCorePkg/blob/master/Docs/Configuration.pdf). I also need to have CSM disabled in bios.

    You need to move all of your kext to the OC folder and make sure Lilu is at the top in your config. Also make sure they're all in the config.

    For anyone who is new and looking for a starting place here is my setup for an Asus z370a. No boot errors, no kinks. Smoother than Clover to me (can be argued, lets not). A few notes: I've stripped back some device properties but left my 580 and 580 HDMI Audio properties in along with my on board audio. Use Hackintool to find your device path and replace. If this is too much (learn it though) then just remove all the Device Properties and Lilu, WEG, AppleALC will take care of the rest. Use Hackintool to get your Serial and UUID and copy and paste into Platform. Easy. If you have a USBkext then replace the kext in the folder and change the name in config if different. If using Injectall and a custom patch then remove the USBkext from config and the folder and add your files to both config and the folders. If you're confused in the Config then just copy and paste a different patch and change the values accordingly. It's easy once you get it. Pro Tip: make sure enabled is YES if applicable. Something that hung me up for a bit with kext was realizing not every kext has an "Executable Path" and you can tell by right clicking the kext and selecting Show Package Contents then Contents and seeing wether or not it has a folder called "MacOS" with a file in there (named after the kext usually and without an extension). If nothing in there then leave it blank in the config file. I have ShowPicker set to to NO so that my boot looks like a Mac. Also TimeOut is set to 1 second. If for some reason your device order is different than mine then you should change it to YES and make the Timeout longer so you have a chance to select the right option at boot. I'm not sure how to add the options like Recovery or what not or even how to auto select the options. Would love to know. For getting a boot log replace Bootx64 and Opencore.efi from the repo with the debug version and change Misc>Debug>Target to 67 in the config file. Thats the number I landed on and seems to get the job done. Would love to know what's best here. Is anyone using Misc>Entries for your drives. Is that what that's for? Last tidbit, please try this on a flash drive. I moved to my main drive this week after 3 weeks of tinkering. Thank you for everyones help in understanding the OpenCore Pkg Doc along with the nuances along the way. EFI.zip

    Used Debug and Target 67 (bit mask was fun to learn in the doc and with some google) and got my first boot log. Rad. Not sure that's the best value for that but it's what I landed on and seems to have given me a very descriptive log. I see there's a ton of searching going on for my APFS volume. Should I be setting this so boot loader only sees my one APFS drive to avoid needless search and fail? Also this seems funny to me. Normal? @maddie Tagging you because you've been super helpful. I just moved OC off my flash drive. Very happy. 18:770 00:057 OC: OcLoadNvramSupport... 18:827 00:057 OC: Invalid nvram data 18:882 00:055 OC: Deleting NVRAM 4D1EDE05-38C7-4A6A-9CC6-4BCCA8B38C14:UIScale - Not Found 18:939 00:056 OC: Setting NVRAM 4D1EDE05-38C7-4A6A-9CC6-4BCCA8B38C14:UIScale - Success opencore-2019-08-13-222528.txt

    Well thanks for the help. Everything loaded to my liking! I'll read more next update and hopefully help some along with the way. I'll also do some reading on how to get a boot log and make sure everything is going swell in boot.

    Never mad at honesty here. I've been keeping it super minimal while I get a grip on everything. I hope that didn't come off as lazy. Hell, I was happy to get a boot and have all my ACPI, Drivers, and Kexts load. You're right, I grabbed the 0.0.4 boot and OpenCore.efi but didn't think to update config. I'm going to give this a look over and boot and report back. Thanks!
