A big thanks to wegface for teaching me a lot of things.
Tested on Catalina 10.15.4 and Clover EFI 5104 (Catalina Patcher)
- realtek sd card reader (pm me if you have a fix)
**CPU patches are disabled, if you are using a locked BIOS you must enable them**
- Install it in UEFI Mode and change your hdd partition table to GPT.
- You will be able to install ANY OS in EFI mode, even if this pc does not support EFI at all! (No guide available for this)
You will need:
My unlocked BIOS (OPTIONAL) (here)
Latest Clover config from CCE Bank (here) (asus k53sj-kylon)
Rehabman Voodoo PS2 Controller (here)
acidanthera AppleALC (here)
acidanthera Lilu (here)
acidanthera VirtualSMC (here)
acidanthera SMCBatteryManager (here)

I have a Vanilla Catalina issue….with a different twist. Installation/upgrade went fine, just took a loooooooong time as I was working from a cloned Mojave external USB hard drive. Boots just fine, and all my apps seem happy. Here lies the twist....Sleep/wake. It will sleep and stay asleep just fine. The issue is with waking up:
Under Clover with FakeSMC, it would wake, but not accept my password. ?????? Ok, its clover....
Under Clover 0.5.5 with VitrualSMC, it would wake, but with no video signal/crash. Again, its clover...
Under OpenCore 0.5.5 with VirtualSMC, it would wake, but with no video signal/crash, and no crash log.
Under OpenCore 0.5.5 with FakeSMC, it sleeps, it wakes,....and accepts my password!!!! Only once. The next time it went to sleep, it would wake, but not accept my password. HUH??????
Kinda strange. For the most part I have just stuck with Mojave. I was waiting for the next build of OC, but I may just use OC builder myself and see if the latest solves any issue, as I see there have been quite a few updates to the project. In the mean time…..suggestions? I have attached an image of the efi.
