@Matgen84 , that's what I did. Isn't that right?

@Andres ZeroCross , I know about that. But doesn't stop me from booting on High Sierra on both Clover and OC. Is it possible for you to take a look if we can fix that errors? Attaching origin folder.

Try to remove VodooI2C.kext and VodooI2CHID.kext first,. and try it. Post for the result

Then it mean, you don't have EC device in your DSDT. 

I have a ECDV device. I rename ECDV to EC at config/plist but doesn't seems to work on OC (works with Clover).

On High Sierra everything is fine with OC on the same config.

Your config.plist only change ECDV to EC in DSDT table,, there is no guarantee there is no ECDV in other OEM SSDT

Simple, in Catalina we MUST use EC device in system. Boot to high sierra with your Current OC. Then upload IOREG Output

Ofcourse NO,, Block DMAR table = No, and don't use dart=0

dart=0 DisableIoMapper and drop DMAR is same function to prevent VT-D

OK.

Succesfully booted into Catalina after added a fake EC device with SSDT-ECUSBX.aml.

But now I have a EC and a ECDV device?

Would that be a problem?

SSDT-ECUSBX.aml

So disable it. There is a sample in OpenCore repo. https://github.com/acidanthera/OpenCorePkg/blob/master/Docs/AcpiSamples/SSDT-EC-USBX.dsl#L34

 

    External (_SB_.PCI0.LPCB.ECDV, DeviceObj)

    Scope (\_SB.PCI0.LPCB.ECDV)
    {
        Method (_STA, 0, NotSerialized)  // _STA: Status
        {
            If (_OSI ("Darwin"))
            {
                Return (0)
            }
            Else
            {
                Return (0x0F)
            }
        }
    }

Disable ECDV can be problematic, some device still need ECDV. keep both is no problem after all. Just disable ECDV if get problem with it.

Here is mine after renaming ECDV to EC. Per looking over this thread, it says if this is a laptop, we have to keep the EC device after renaming since battery stats are tied to it. My laptop doesn't even allow me to disable ECDV as a test as if I do, my laptop will freeze during boot so just have to keep it there. Question I have though is I used Hackintool to customize my USB devices, in the past the tool wouldn't generate a SSDT-EC.aml, but now it does and it doesn't give me a SSDT-USBx.aml file. Is the USBx power properties no longer needed in 10.15 or in that case, do I just use the SSDT-ECUSBx.aml, without the EC portion? I do have a AppleBusPowerController in IOResources, but not on the EC device like 10.14 did when used with USBx.

How did you manage to do the renaming?

Would you mind uploading you oc folder?

Here you go. Hackintool provides you some of the patches that is needed based on your laptop config so that's where I got the rename command from.

For those how are noob:s like me and don't want to put embarresing questions about things that seems obvious for most of the people on this forum.  

Credits for this guide goes to cattyhouse on GitHub and translation from Chinese to English goes to Google translate:thumbsup_anim:

 

 

OpenCore installs various versions of macOS from Recovery's DMG
advantage

No need to download macOS installation files from the App Store
There is no requirement for the operating platform, as long as you can run the php command, so you can operate on Linux/Windows/macOS or even on a Linux server.
The download volume is very small, Recovery is only 400~500M
Support for the installation of various versions of macOS, solving the problem that is difficult to obtain in the old version of macOS
Disadvantage

Need to know how to configure OpenCore, you must configure it in advance. In fact, it is not a disadvantage, because even if you use the method of making a boot disk, you still need to configure OpenCore to start the computer.
After entering the installation interface, you need to connect to the network. The subsequent installation process needs to get the required files from Apple's server, usually running your bandwidth, so it is not a disadvantage.
step

Configure EFI for OpenCore

Download Recovery DMG

Get php script

Get the reference file for downloading the command of DMG

Take the Linux/macOS platform below, download the Mojave DMG as an example, go to the folder where the retain_recovery.php is located, and run the reference recovery_urls.txt:

Php obtain_recovery.php 00000000000KXPG00 Mac-7BA5B2DFE22DDD8C

Will download 2 files, RecoveryImage.dmg and RecoveryImage.chunklist

Prepare a USB flash drive with a capacity of 1GB or more and format it into Fat32 format.

Copy OpenEore's EFI to the root directory of the USB flash drive

Create a folder name in the root directory of the USB drive: com.apple.recovery.boot

Copy RecoveryImage.dmg and RecoveryImage.chunklist to com.apple.recovery.boot

Name the startup file

Create a new hidden file under the folder com.apple.recovery.boot .contentDetails
Content can be written casually, such as Mojave Boot From Recovery, the name will appear on the OpenCore boot menu.
The file structure on the final USB drive looks like this:

EFI
    ├── BOOT
    ├── OC
Com.apple.recovery.boot
    ├── RecoveryImage.chunklist
    └── RecoveryImage.dmg
    └── .contentDetails
Start the computer with a USB flash drive and select Mojave Boot From Recovery. Then you will enter the normal installation interface.

      Hi,
       
      I'm writing from a Catalina QEMU/KVM VM which, I must say, works pretty damn well besides the fact that rebooting just doesn't work. But first, a bit of background:
      I'm using OpenCore 0.5.5 through DuetPkg because I'm forced on SeaBIOS (legacy boot) because of legacy IGD passthrough (OVMF doesn't support the semi-hack that's needed for it to function), and that works well enough; I switched from Clover because it didn't allow me to use the "host" cpu model on QEMU, which OpenCore did, and so far so good.
       
      The problem is that, whenever i attempt a reboot, the screen would just turn black and thats's it. I can even see that every 30 seconds it polls the battery's status through ACPI (I modified QEMU for that and left some debugging printfs).
      On the other hand, shutting down works as expected. One thing I noticed is that, on shutdown, I can see the last line of verbose output on the screen is "CPU_HALTED", whereas on reboot I don't get that (don't even know if that's to be expected).
       
      The point is that I'm not even sure this is a bootloader issue, because I booted a Fedora live ISO through OpenCore, and that rebooted with no problems, but at the same time I remember that with Clover I didn't have such an issue. Perhaps it was one of Clover's "Fixes" that is not automatic with OpenCore?
       
      Anyway, I attached my config.plist.
       
      Thank you.

      Hello guys,
      I'm relatively new to the world of hackintosh.
      I'm trying to install the latest Mac OS - Catalina with the help of Opencore, however, this is the error that's displayed while booting from the USB:
       
      https://drive.google.com/open?id=1Xd4V2wZ2fEsgRyfVcXlJHXMPGa85g2s3
       
      You can take a look at my config.plist file from here - https://drive.google.com/file/d/17FZpTcVp4RFSaxdm6yW4uELkt7MaLdmt/view?usp=sharing
       
      I'm using the Acer E575 G laptop with Kabylake (i5 7200u)
       
      Any help would be gladly appreciated!
       
      Edit: I've fixed this problem by following this guide completely - https://khronokernel-2.gitbook.io/opencore-vanilla-desktop-guide/intel-config.plist/kaby-lake
       
      This is due to OpenCore being unable to find any drives with the current ScanPolicy, setting to 0 will allow all boot options to be shown

      Dear All, 
       
      trying to install Catalina on my ASUS Z87 Plus, I followed the Haswell guide to the letter, all set up now, USB stick boots ok, Catalina installs on SSD, but then when trying to boot it I am receiving Kernel Panic and no idea how to move forward. 
       
      Have the debug options, but opencore will only dump boot messages where I don't see much sticking out.
       
      My last resort would be just installing clover on the already installed SSD's EFI partition, it at all possible. High Sierra is working fine and I did get Clover with Mojave once but stuck with High Sierra with my GTX960 video card...
       
      Attached is the kernel panic and my EFI setup if anyone can help me troubleshoot.
      Many thanks
      D.

      After several weeks of testing OC bootloader,  disecting its source code and also Clover's source code as well, I finally switch from Clover to OC as my main bootloader. Wait! don't get the wrong idea that OpenCore is better than Clover. They both work equally well, producing a bootable macOS as an end result with simliar boot time. OC design direction is different with Clover, I believe it's not intended as a Clover replacement, but more narrowing down to macOS specifically. However, macOS is not the only OS that i am using, so, i decided to add some minimal necessary source code modification to the OC to get some of the features I need. I like to share my customized OC forked https://github.com/n-d-k/OpenCorePkg , you have to compile it yourself if you want, i will not provide pre build binary.    
       
      Additional features/changes:
      ============
       
      [ Multi-Boot ]
        - ACPI patches are optional for non macOS with setting ACPI->Quirks->EnableForAll to yes (default is no).
        - Booter Quirtks, SMBIOS and Device Properties patches will only applied to macOS.
          
      [ Hotkeys ]
        - Full functional Hotkeys [1-9] corresponding to Boot Entry's Index number and dedicated W (Windows) / X (macOS) keys can be used without seeing Boot Picker.
        - While in boot picker, F10 can use to take a snapshot of the screen.
                
      [ Ui Boot Picker ]
        - Bios Date/time, auto boot to the same OS or manual set to always boot one OS mode, and OC version are displayed in boot picker.
        - Auto boot to previous booted OS (if Misc->Security->AllowSetDefault is NO/false).
        - macOS Recovery/Tools Entries are hidden by default, use Spacebar in Boot Menu as a toggle on/off to show/hide hidden entries.
                
      [ Custom Entries ]
         - Custom entries are now listed first in picker menu and by the orders they are appeared in Misc->Boot->Entries, before all other entries.
         - Ability to change entry name found by auto scanner by adding custom entry with the exact same device path,
           this will give users the option to complete change how all boot entries listed in Boot Picker.
          
      [ Others ]
         - No verbose apfs.efi driver loading (if using apfs.efi instead of ApfsDriverLoader.efi).
          - ndk-macbuild.tool script are set to compile with latest edk2 (One can easily set to stable edk2 if prefer).
          - NvmExpressDxe driver build script are also available for system without native nvme support. (Compatible with OC and Clover).
       
      Usage:
       - To build OpenCore, run "./ndk-macbuild.tool" at Terminal (require Xcode and Xcode Command Line Tool installed, and open xcode to accept license agreement before compiling).
       - To build NvmExpressDxe driver, run "./buildnvme.sh".
       
      4k screen resolutions
