HP 840 G2/G3, working with OS X 10.15 Catalina, for this to work you will need the SSDT-ECUSBX.aml and place that EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/Patched.
Make sure you remove Remove all patches about renaming acpi of EC or H_EC, revert all ACPI renaming in ACPI DSDT.
My method to install OS X on the SSD from a working real Mac via SSD to USB converter. I then install Clover and add my kexts and set the config.plist
SD Card reader
Finger Print device
Video - screen looks better in OS X then it does in Windows 10
WiFi and BlueTooth working OOO using the below hack
Battery status with Rehabman's DSDT patch
Sounds - using VoodooHDA
* Microphone - cannot turn it off or mute
Keyboard backlight - controlled though BIOS anyways
touchpad - using VoodooPS2Controller
USB3 - this laptop has two on board only and I haven't test them using the docking station
Ethernet - using IntelMausiEthernet
Sleep - kind of, closing the lid doesn't go to sleep but goes to sleep over time.
Web Cam, works but I covered it up.
Me (and many other people) experience eye-ache from new Macbooks (and windows machines).
I have spent two years of trial-and-error and found that installing macOS Mavericks on my MacBook (pro 13 late 2013, Intel Iris 1536 MB) resolves the issue of eye ache completely. (it is believed that newer systems use harsher version of temporal dithering that causes of a certain group of indivisuals eye aches).
I cannot stay at Mavericks because of software support and security issues, so the only thing is an issue now:
How can I take drivers from Mavericks and install them on Catalina? (I tried replacing .kext in /System/Library/Extensions with old files but it didn't work).

I just installed. Everything works fine. I'll test final cut pro, premiere pro with 4k footage and get back with you on performance.
For now moves like a performant Mac book pro.
I installed Catalina first but I could not make the Intel UHD 620 Graphics get proper QE/CI.
Mojave is just fine. I want to use this system for quick video editing on the go.
Geekbench in my signature.
If you need any files or have any questions pls ask.
In this machine I successfully installed macOS Sierra 10.12.6 (16G29). But I'm getting an error in verbose mode like some contagious file. Also I'm getting an error of shutdown. I have attached the screenshot of the same. I have also recorded the video and its url is :
You may see it at 0:40 seconds. Later on when whole process get completed then I get an error of shut down "You shut down your computer because of a problem." Again and again I'm getting this error on every restart. If I'm somewhere wrong for any kext or any other thing for that, here is my EFI folder (https://drive.google.com/open?id=1k-MSKSHXK9TL3WOBPZj6O789jBau7kWx). Also I have attached my config.plist file. Audio is working, but didn't recognised the device. About this Mac is also showing details properly.
Please help me out it would be grateful and appreciated
