My steps so far:
Set up Catalina install USB exactly according to Plain Vanilla guide. Disconnect my Windows drive in PC, so that only the empty Hard Drive is connected to Motherboard. Boot to USB, select Install Catalina option. BIOS set to UEFI, Safe mode Off. Always get stuck at the same IOconsoleUsers: GIOScreenLockState point. Tried -radvesa, -radoff, nv-disable=0 boot options (separately), and disabling BIOS virtualization (vt-d) -> NO luck. This from the top search result https://www.reddit.com/r/hackintosh/comments/b5a6ry/ioconsoleusersgioscreenlockstate_3_blackscreen/
Screen pics attached. Here are the last couple of lines that could be important:
GTrace synchronization point 4
Adding ADGP mode validate property
hmm.. mismatch sizes 3100 vs 20
IOConsoleUsers: time(0) 0->0, lin 0, llk 1,
IOconsoleUsers: gIOScreenLockState 3, hs 0, bs 0, now 0, sm 0x0
Please give me some ideas what else might work. Thank you.

What doesn’t work
Sleep Wake — I have no idea how to fix it as it is required DSDT patch I guess. GPS NFC Audio ---> Realtek I2S Audio (PG0.35 for DELL)
In DSDT entries is HDAUDIO\\FUNC_01&VEN_10EC&DEV_0282&SUBSYS_00000000&REV_1000\ Which indicates ALC282
Audio ALC3263 (As it shown in BIOS) - Broadwell rt286 - Card1/Codec#0 (Utilised in I2S Mode) there is nowhere in BIOS to change to HDA mode). Drop OEM HDA and Fix HDA don’t do anything, still show 3 HDMI Audio outputs. If there is a DSDT patch to force HDA Audio mode, Please do enlighten me.
As a result Internal Speaker, Internal Mic, and Headphone Jack doesn’t work.
Touchpad on Travel Keyboard Dell K12a001 (Should work with DSDT Patch with pin configuration) I have no idea how. Obviously, Intel Wireless 7265 AC. For experimental purpose. https://github.com/daliansky/XiaoMi-Pro-Hackintosh/issues/330 — Knock yourself out. I managed to get it work for awhile but the real problem is kernel panic so I gave up. Ordering compatible card instead. ------------------
Config.plist got it from Rehabman laptop config.
BIOS version A20
- Legacy Boot Rom
- Secure Boot
- TPM 2.0
SMBIOS - I use MacBook8,1. —- MacBookAir7,1-7,2 (Min Freq is at 1.2 GHz) MacBookPro12,1 Min Freq is at 800 Mhz and it is the default this cpu should be. Again, there is a way to set it right somewhere in this forum.
-->> DSDT Windows 8 patch
System sees only one I2C Controller which control Touch Screen.
Touch Screen registers as Magic Trackpad 2.
Pen as Mouse
-->> DSDT Windows 8.1 Patch
System sees two I2C Controllers which control Touch Screen and Accelerometer.
Touch Screen registers as Magic Trackpad 2.
Pen as Mouse
OOO>>> With Windows 8.1 patch which it should run with this one because it can see more of HID devices and controllers.
Problem is Accelerometer (SHUB).
Device can automatically rotate screen as it should be BUT it flips the screen wildly even with slightly movement. It stops only when device stays completely still. Eventually it breaks internal screen graphic. It becomes grabble. I restored internal screen graphic by connecting it to external monitor and set rotation of external screen to 0 degree. Then it is back to normal. (I guess it conflict with rotation setting) I disable SHUB in DSDT.
During Installation process Full Graphic acceleration can be activated straight away by Lilu and Whatevergreen. AppStore, iMessage and, FaceTime activate by NullEthernet and SSDT by Rehabman USBInjectAll needed for keyboard and other usb peripherals. Use other tool to keep certain ports active as Rehabman mention this KEXT is not good for a long run. Please do Correct me if I did something worng. Or any suggestions to make this thing runs better.
This esentially an ultra-simplistic version that is stable without the use of a deploy or complicated file installations and copies. Highly recommend using DW1560 wifi card, killer wifi isn't supported. This does include a copy of Clover, which of course I take no credit for. I am only responsible for minor changes in files and plists, as well as placement and instructions throughout the guide (as well as the work used from previous projects). Many files and ideas are sourced from @maz-1, @syscl, and my previous guides Granted, many files are similar or the same but there is significantly less of them and/or they are predeployed into spots where they will work just as well, even if not as efficient on bootup. Esentially, this guide is designed to provide a perfectly working setup with little knowledge of the topic and without optimization (because often they can break things). Most patches on the main plist use patches implemented by him as well. ****This guide does work excellently however and will provide you with a near perfect setup for Catalina for your XPS 9350, and is currently my daily driver as I struggled using the referenced users files as well.
This guide is designed to be literally as thorough as possible to appeal to those who really don't understand many of the things in @maz-1's guide or some of the other users as they assume you would already understand this information. It does not cover complex topics like undervolting etc etc Notes
Never tested USB C except for charging, works great no issues with sleep, wakeup. power management is defaulted as I found with @maz-1 it had issues when on battery switching from AC USB devices eject on sleep (not really an issue) Haven't implemented a Bluetooth solution into this yet, as I don't really use it -- will be added ASAP (I believe KILLER WIFI will NOT work, must use one of the supported chipsets (DW1560 is excellent) BIOS Setup
Set all SATA operation as AHCI Disable Secure Boot, Fast Boot For Coil Whine improvement disable C-States Enable UEFI Booting Recommended: Clean Install (Preinstall steps)
Format a USB (16GB) as Journaled and then proceed to download the latest Catalina Installer Patcher Application Download the latest Catalina installer from within the Patcher App, and select to download a new copy and install to your USB device Download the clover configurator application and mount the EFI of the USB partition, then copy the contents of the Files linked above to the EFI Folder within the EFI partition. ** This is because the App Store installers will often not download a full installer, just an truncated version that downloads the installer files from the interent while installing. Thus, they're not bootable from a USB as they're not complete. That is why you should use this method to make sure the installer is usable for bootable media.
Simply use F12 to boot from the USB device, and select the USB Device and then boot from the Install mac OS partition. I have defaulted the installer to boot into verbose mode so I can easily see the errors you guys are seeing if you encounter them. If everything goes well, you can disable these from the boot arguments selection of Clover Configurator Boot into the USB Device, and follow the steps to format your SSD from the installer to install Mac OS Catalina. NOTE THE TRACKPAD WILL NOT FUNCTION AT THIS POINT, BUT THE TOUCHSCREEN WILL. This is caused by the way the installer handles Kext loading but because the touchscreen is being loaded via usb and the keyboard in a different method (which I can explain in detail if you'd like, the install will be possible. Do not be alarmed if the installer takes a long time to boot into, this is expected Once you have done this step, use F12 to select the USB and boot into the installer from the SSD in the options menu. (you cannot boot natively yet as the EFI isn't copied into the SSD yet. Setup computer as normal, touchpad, brightness, etc, should all be functioning at this point. Same with wifi. Then, you should using Clover configurator copy the contents of the USB EFI into the EFI folder of your SSD EFI partition (in the folder) Now we will add this as a native boot option. Setup computer as normal, touchpad, brightness, etc, should all be functioning at this point. Same with wifi. Then, you should using Clover configurator copy the contents of the USB EFI into the EFI folder of your SSD EFI partition (in the folder) Now will we add this as a boot entry so you can always boot from this natively without the USB. Boot Entry Setup
Boot into the BIOS of the computer, then navigate to the Boot setup (or entries (not sure what it is called exactly, but it will be a list of the options your computer selects to boot) Click add new, and make sure the USB isn't plugged in. Select the only option that is avaiable, and in FS0 navigate to Boot/BOOTx64. Add this as an entry, then select this as whatever priority you would like. Credits

Using Clover Configuator generate your own Serials, Board Numbers, MLB There are various guides online to do this and as default they're set to essentially Null (Fakeserial) This is fairly straightforward and there is lots of documentation, just don't open these apps until you've done this properly. Finished!
