After going through the Dortania guide about OpenCore, I managed to get Big Sur working on my Dell Inspiron 7572 Laptop. Here is the list of things which work and which does not:
- Audio (Realtek ALC3246) No sound from headphones though.
- Intel UHD 620 graphics.
- Backlight, keyboard and trackpad.
- iMessage, FaceTime and App Store.
NOT WORKING / Issues:
- Wifi (Got a cheap Wifi USB adapter to work TPLink TL-WN725N)
- Sleep not working correctly. Display does not turn on.
- Shutdown keeps the laptop running with display off. Restart works correctly.
- Internal SATA drives not showing up.
After following the guide about ACPI on Dortania website. I patched the SSDTs manually. Didn't know whether I did it correctly or not.
Request you all to help me resolve the above issues, so that I can have a perfect hackintosh.
[GUIDE] Catalina and Big Sur on HP EliteDesk 800 G4/G5 Mini - The perfect MacMini8,1 Hackintosh - CLOVER & OCBy tonyx86
In this thread, I have fully documented the installation of macOS Catalina on my HP EliteDesk 800 G4 Mini. It is a PERFECT HackMini8,1 and is running very well for me without any issues. I hope this documentation helps you to install macOS on your hack. Please leave feedback if you think there is anything I can improve and let me know if you have any questions.
This is my first "modern" hack supporting UEFI and my first hack using Clover "on-the-fly" patches. My previous hacks
Laptop: Thinkpad T61 / Nvidia NVS 140m Laptop: Dell Latitude E6410 / Nvidia G3100m Desktop: Gigabyte G31 / GeForce 9600 Desktop: Biostar TH55HD / Sapphire Pulse RX580 (Google "Catalina Biostar TH55HD" and look for user name deeveedee)
are all perfectly running Catalina and I patched them all "manually" - all DSDT patches applied with MaciSL with virtually no Clover on-the-fly patching and all booted Legacy Clover. This UEFI hack was MUCH easier and took about 20 hours vs. a combined hundreds of hours for the old hacks. I wanted a hack that was a little more future proof and I think this is it. I hope you enjoy this as much as I am enjoying it. It is a perfect MacMini8,1.

What is not working
What is not tested
USB c 3.1 port (I have partially tested the USB 3 functionality of the port and it seems to be working fine with the USBPorts.kext in the attached EliteDesk800.zip archive) Wi-Fi / Bluetooth (intentional since I have not yet replaced my Intel card).

I tried to patch the DSDT (battery) for my thinkpad L380, but to no avail. Could anyone help me on this?
Here are my hardware and software:
Bootloader: opencore 0.5.9 (DSDT and EFI in the attached file, SMBIOS removed) Hardware:thinkpad L380 (detail info: https://psref.lenovo.com/syspool/Sys/PDF/ThinkPad/ThinkPad_L380/ThinkPad_L380_Spec.PDF) CPU: I5-8250U GPU: UHD 620 SSD: 970 Evo plus Wifi card: native broadcom card (wifi worked without kext, bluetooth doesn't work due to not properly patch USB) OS: MacOS Catalina 10.15.7
Thank you and good day.

I have moved on with this and do not use my HP G2 for Hackintosh, its mainly used for Kali Linux for Packet analysis these days, with that said I am using the HP 840 G3 for Hackintosh. I transitioned to OpenCore and Big Sur for this laptop but feel free to continue to ask questions.
My G3 has the BCM84360CS2 mod, I got the module from eBay for $10 and the adapter for $10 off amazon.
Big Sur Beta 5 is working using the below EFI folder. OpenCore 6.1.0 and latest kexts
Method: USB Big Sur installation
Create an Big Sur Beta5 or Catalina USB installer (google is your friend here, plenty of tutorials there) Mount the EFI partition of your USB installer using Clover Configurator Copy the EFI file attached here. Boot your laptop using F9 and choose the USB installer and follow the prompts
Catalina and old method in the Spoiler
Credits go to Jake Lo for creating this EFI file. I did make some changes to his, this one is Open Core 6.1.0 and latest Lilu.kext and WhatEverGreen.kext
