I've got a fully working install of Catalina 10.15.5 using OpenCore 0.5.9 and I've managed to get everything working perfectly. It's my first PC Build ever (Let alone Hackintosh) so I'm pretty pleased that I've managed to get everything up and running so far, including Thunderbolt 3 (with hotplug), Sidecar, onboard HDMI Audio, Wifi/BT pairing across both OS (Windows 10 and MacOS). The only thing that now bugs me is the time taken to boot from the Opencore picker to my login screen. It's not super slow by any means, but with my specs I believe it should be faster. Here is what I'm running:
Intel Core i7 10700K
Gigabyte Z490 Vision D
Corsair LPX 3000MHz 32GB RAM (2x16GB)
Adata XPG SX8200 1TB NVMe SSD (MacOS)
Adata XPG SX8200 1TB NVMe SSD (Windows 10)
Crucial BX200 1TB SSD (Storage)
Crucial MX500 2TB SSD (Storage)
Asus 8GB Dual Arez RX580
Windows boot is pretty sharp - Usually under 10secs. MacOS on the other hand usually is in the region of ~70secs. When I first installed Catalina it would boot super quick, but it's gotten more and more sluggish over the last few weeks. Is there anything I can do to speed it up? I can attach my EFI if needed.
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

I’ve followed the Dortania IvyBridge Desktop configuration guide (https://dortania.github.io/OpenCore-Install-Guide/) as closely as possible for this computer:
Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-3820 CPU @ 3.60GHz Motherboard: Asus Sabertooth X79 GPU: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 650 Ti 2 GB I believe this is a Sandy Bridge or Sandy Bridge-E in reality.
The good: I can boot my existing MacOs Catalina 10.15.6 installation.
I have NO mouse or keyboard (or USB of any kind). I cannot boot the installer 10.15.6 because it is on a USB thumb drive.
When I boot either installer or MacOs partition, I see the LED indicator on my thumb drive turns off.
The error message that I see that seems to be applicable is:
Waiting on <dict ID=“0”><key>IOProviderClass</key><string ID=“1”>IOResources</string><key>IOResourceMatch</key><string ID=“2”>boot-uuid-…..>
For a glimpse of my EFI folder please see https://github.com/aaronpfoltzer/opencore
I have UsbInjectAll.kext in my Kexts folder and XhciPortLimit set to true. I thought this would temporarily allow USB ports to work until I did the actual USB mapping. My SSDT-EC is done manually but matches the output from SSDTTime anyway. I’ve tried different SMBIOS. (iMacPro1,1 which is what I am using now with Clover, but now iMac13,2 as recommended for IvyBridge Desktops).
Lenovo T460 macOS with Clover Guide
Latest Release on GitHub (July 2020) Updated to Clover r5120 Updated Lilu based kexts - Lilu, ALC, WEG Added AirportBrcmFixup.kext
Various Tweaks over Last months The main branch in my github repo is a complete Clover ESP (/EFI) bundle and kext pack for the Lenovo T460. The current file bundle seems to work on Sierra, HighSierra, Mojave and Catalina. There is an OpenCore branch in the repo as an alternative to Clover. This guide was developed for a Clover implementation. But the thread has evolved to include discussion of both Clover and Opencore for these systems: T460 and T470 family of ThinkPads.
Full Clover file set - config.plist etc. Includes all custom kexts Includes custom DSDT/SSDT scripts and patches Utility scripts The zip bundles are posted to GitHub: https://github.com/tluck/Lenovo-T460-Clover/releases
Caveat: The T460 systems used here was configured with: i5-6300U, Intel HD Graphics 520, 1920x1080 touch screen. If you have a different system model, then extract the ACPI files and use the included scripts to create a set of files consistent with your system type and BIOS version. See below for details.
Credits: RehabMan, Shmilee, vusun123, TimeWalker, Mieze from which, much of their work and help is/was was used to get the T460 to this point.
Devices and aspects working:
Ethernet - Intel I219LM is enabled via IntelMausiEthernext.kext WiFi/BT - substitute the Intel WiFi/BT with a compatible Broadcom or Atheros chip Audio - ALC293 codec implemented via AppleALC.kext (the old AppleHDA_ALC293 and CodecCommander kexts are not needed) PS2 - ClickPad + TrackPoint + all 3 buttons - using a modified VoodooPS2Controller to support new layouts - and added some custom Fn key maps based on 440/450 dsdt USB - implemented via custom SSDT + USBInjectAll kext. All USB3/USB2 ports are intel-based and work - 3 external USB and internal Camera, BT, etc Sleep/Wake - the sleepwatcher package and custom sleep/wake scripts are used to help with sleep/wake for BT and PS2 devices. Note: have not tried to implement the SD card reader - no driver found.
