So let’s start from beginning. I’m owner of Lenovo Yoga 720-15IKB, with:
GTX 1050 2GB (disabled)
Intel SSD 660p
Dell DW1820A (CN... version, working OOTB)
I’ve found some configs to Yoga 720-15, but every is for i7-7700HQ version. I tried using Vesavlad’s config, and some random configs from TonyMacX86, with no luck. I’ve found, that I’m not the only person that tried that, but the second person abandoned their attempt to get it working...
Here is what I’ve found:
with Vesavlad’s config I can boot to installer, create APFS partition. In stage 2, after 1st reboot I’m getting this message.
disabling Intel TPT does not allow me to get into installer. Nothing, just flashing black screen and back to clover and/or Windows 10 (according to boot settings).
creating installer from MacOS 10.9 Mavericks works best for me. After making installer form Mojave, I was stuck on Prohibited sign.
What should I do, to make it working? Is there really any huge difference between config for i5 and i7? Why am I unable to boot to installer with Intel TPT disabled?

Wireless LAN [Enabled]
SATA Controller Mode [AHCI]

Hi everyone, after lots of attempts i managed to install Mojave 14.4 on my asus zenbook ux303ub and get almost averything working, except i wasnt able to make wifi work with sleep, i replaced the intel wifi with dw1560/bcm94352z which i made to work by installing the kexts.The problem is that when i install it sleep gets affected, when i press sleep it takes 1 minute to go to sleep and when i press the power button it wakes to a black screen that is showing only the cursor and i have to force shut down by holding power button , so in order to fix sleep the only way i have found is to select "fixregions" in config.plist acpi section but then wifi stops working, it shows "hardware not installed" when i click the icon and only bluetooth works.I have tried clover config changes, patching ssdt and dsdt, usb ssdt, installing kexts in different locations but none of them seem to work , can someone help me with this? I attach the files below , thanks.
I hope you can help me solve a mystery.
Even the amazing Mald0n has been working hard to help me find a solution, but now were are both stuck.
Creative thinking or maybe just help to see the forest for the trees would be highly appreciated.
Mac will not sleep.
Monitors sleep fine, and come back on with touch of keyboard.
GPU and CPU coolers are constantly running on idle to low load and will not go on standby no matter what we have tried.
Even when using full “Shut down” via apple menu the lights from the MoBo or GPU are pulsing slowly, which they normally dont as far as I recall.
(This specific issue could possibly be solved by using ErP Ready in BIOS. Haven´t tested this since that´s a smaller issue ATM)
Everything else seems to be working fine.
This problem started appr a week ago, and I have no idea why.
No major installs, updates or changes that I can think of.
• To be able to activate sleep via apple menu.
• To have it sleep within 15-30 secs and wake up quickly (like it did before) via push on Power button
• Running 10.13.6
• Asus Maximus X Hero Wifi
• Gtx 1080 Ti
• 32 GB Corsair RAM
• Intel i7 8700K
• 2 monitors via Displayport
• 6 internal disks (2 HDD, 4 SSD)
• 1 external backup
• 1 internal USB hub/SD reader
• 3rd party Bluetooth and Wifi (Asus MB not compatible)
• No Blutooth mouse, KB etc
WHAT I HAVE DONE SO FAR:
• Used Mald0n’s custom DSDT with latest config
• IUpdated to latest Security Update
• Updated to latest BIOS
• Updated NVIDIA webdriver and CUDA to latest
• Disconnected LED monitors and tested with old Mac monitor via DVI to see if Displayports were the issue
• Disabled Adobe CC Sync
• Run CleanMyMac
• No start-up apps or extensions in System Prefs
• Disk Utility: checked all disks
• Terminal: no info on wake reason at all. (Possibly because it doesn´t sleep, hence nothing is interrupting it).
• Blutooth allowed to wake sleep: set to OFF
• Power manager: only setting is “never switch off monitors”. The rest are off/unchecked
• BIOS: Tested by setting "ErP ready" to S5 > no difference
• DSDT and EFI folder screenshot attached.
I think that’s it - otherwise just ask
I have read a lot of articles on this type of issue, but none with a clear answer.
So if anyone can solve this mystery, it would be amazing!
Thank you in advance!
Of course it was something seemingly insignificant and stupid that prevented sleep: An unfinished PRINTER job....
After clearing the printer queue, it went to sleep but woke up immediately after due to a USB power issue. Possibly an internal USB/SD hub.
Mald0n used his magic and made a new DSDT file to fix that, and now the machine is running almost perfectly apart from a fickle Bluetooth (fingers crossed).
