Catalina update 10.15.2 without issues, make sure you update your kexts before hand.
Catalina update 10.15.1 without issue although you may have to make sure clover boots from the right partition.
HP 840 G2, 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.
If you have a working Brightness Slider and you might be using Brightness slider or manual hotkeys to control brightness then this guide may help you to use your Native hotkeys of laptop.
(All the Credits goes to @RehabMan For OS-X-ACPI-Debug Kext and DSDT Patches.)
This step assumes that you are using RehabMan's VoodooPS2Controller or Acidanthera's PS2Controller
Install the kext: https://github.com/RehabMan/OS-X-ACPI-Debug
Open MaciASL and click on patch.(Add rehab man repo)
Apply "Add DSDT Debug Methods" and "Instrument EC Queries" that are under Brightness Fix.
Save the DSDT and restart
Look in Syslog as you press the key corresponding to brightness to determine which _QXX methods handle the keys
(UPDATE: From Sierra Apple changed logging process. So you won't find ACPIdebug result using syslog command. Instead use following command )
log show --last 5 | grep ACPIDebug
6. Then patch DSDT:
into method label _Q1D replace_content
// Brightness Down\n
into method label _Q1C replace_content
// Brightness Up\n
Change the variable _Q1D/_Q1C as per the log.
7. Try compiling and check if it generates errors 8. If it does, then change the PS2M to PS2X according to the one found in your DSDT 9. Save and place the compiled DSDT. 10. Now you should see that you have your corresponding keys to change your brightness

Greetings from Brazil! I'm running macOS Catalina 10.15.2 on my Lenovo Ideapad 300-15ISK laptop. Everything works smoothly, except decent battery management, so I decided to rebuild my DSDT from scratch, so I can patch it properly. It was a bit messy to start with.
I followed Rehabman's guide (to the letter) posted on tonymacx86. However, I keep getting a compile error, no warnings at all, just 'syntax error, unexpected PARSEOP_ARG1'. Please refer to attached PNG image and .dsl file.
I've searched endlessly for a solution, but can't fix it no matter what I try. Any ideas on how to fix this issue? I really appreciate your time and help.
Clover r5101 ISO compiled with GCC and minimal config.plist compatible for use in VMWare Workstation.
Tested with unlocked Workstation 15 running OSX 10.9 -->10.15 guest in Windows X64 host.
1. Download and unzip "EFI_Clover_r5101 for VMware.zip". Mount Clover-v2.5k-5101-X64.iso by double clicking on it.
2. Mount your VM's EFI System Partition eg in terminal
sudo diskutil mount disk0s1
3. Copy EFI folder from step 1 into the EFI partition
4. Shutdown the VM, add bios.bootDelay = "3000" to your VM's vmx file
5. Reboot your VM, press <F2> to access the VMware Boot Manager and add CLOVERX64.efi to the boot menu.
Substitute your own unique and valid MLB and ROM variables in the /EFI/CLOVER/config.plist (Rt Variables section) to activate iMessage/Facetime on your VM.
