IntelGraphicsFixup, NvidiaGraphicsFixup, and Shiki are now officially dead and are part of WhateverGreen. Using them together is not supported and will lead to undefined behaviour.
New WhateverGreen features should improve the maintainability, compatibility and performance of the overall solution, as well as simplify the installation.
For the time being the latest versions of Lilu, AppleALC, and WhateverGreen are only available in source and are recommended for trying.
Intel GuC firmware loading caused random freezes and kernel panics as well as no visible performance boost (aside different numbers in sensors) and was removed as harmful. The rest of the functionality is mostly intact.
So I have my Windows computer, used a USB with Clover setup to boot into Mojave OS that I installed on the SD card in the computer. The world was a great place and all was well!
Then I did the steps to partition the pc system to now include the additional drive that I would put Clover on. Here's where I messed up: Instead of directly copying over the full Clover folder into the EFI folder of the new drive (which just had the Boot & Microsoft folders in it), I replaced the EFI's boot folder with Clover's boot folder. So the EFI folder now contains a Microsoft folder, a Clover folder, and Clover's Boot folder only.
Now, I only can access the Clover boot up menu, the macOS, but no Windows at all. Even if I go into BIOS and pick Windows Boot Manager or Partition 1 for the start up, I get a black screen for both. I can still access the macOS as well as Shell, but I don't know what that does other than displaying all of the yellow text fly by..
Is there a kind soul out there that can help me get Windows back to boot? Keep in mind I'm a bit of a newbie here so laying out the common-sense steps would be helpful!
I found a guide on how to install Catalina on Lenovo M920q, everything works well but the installation is freezing up.
The USB bootable drive is a recovery one with internet based installation. The internet is working well on the pre-installation setup (I tested it, when you can use the utilities).
The installation is freezing whether I am installing the macOS or not.
I've attached my EFI partition so you can check if there's anything to add.
Will realy appreciate any kind of help (quit noob to the whole thing).
Thanks in advance and stay safe!
NOTE: I did followed up the troubleshooting guide of OpenCore installation forum and the answer was to add the NullCPUPowerManagement.kext to the kexts and configure it on the .plist file.
This is the original EFI folder: EFI.zip
Thats the one with the NullCPUPowerManagement.kext added: EFI.zip

This esentially an ultra-simplistic version that is stable without the use of a deploy or complicated file installations and copies.
You can easily view all the SSDT patches along with configuration files for the bootloader as they are all documented clearly in the files.
This does include a copy of Clover, which of course I do not contribute to and am only responsible for the provided files, patches, and kext placements
This guide provides a working setup with little knowledge of the topic and without "optimization" (because often they can break things). But, it is fully functional and preforms properly and is stable
Make sure you are using DW1560 for wifi or else KP. If not using remove BRCM kexts from CLOVER>kexts>other.
Disable Secure Boot
INSTALL (VERY IMPORTANT)
Due to structural changes in the setup of apple's Big sur, this EFI cannot boot the installer it can only boot into a system / device that has already been created and setup.
To do this, you need to install Big Sur to a virtual machine (lots of guides online) and then create an dmg of that system, and restore it onto your HDD using the 'dd' command
There are various guides online how to get this virtual machine setup complete.
You can then use the attached EFI folder to boot and use macOS big Sur
You can use this video to show you how to get your macOS pre-installed onto your hard drive https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HMU3nhcbWHw
Boot Entry Setup
Due to the fact this BIOS is locked down pretty heavily, reccomended to use Windows to find a free tool to add UEFI boot entries
Messages and Facetime
Gnerate 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 external recourses, or you can contact me for support.
Headphones and Audio
All audio from speakers should work perfectly along with Bluetooth and USB audio
no internal mic
MaLd0n for DSDT Patches (HUGE SHOUTOUT)
