LVDS - Internal Display Black Screen - Intel 520 Skylake

2 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

I'm trying to install MacOS Catalina on the ACER C22-760 (i3 6100U, 520 HD)

I did all the usual prep to install the system, especially as I've done hackintoshes with the same specs in the past.

But after the moment it boots up, the screen goes black. So I decided to install the system booted in 0x12345678 and then fix the graphics.

Long story short, with the installation done I've tried every single combination to fix the graphics and found out that:

  1. Booting with a 0x12345678, a 1080p monitor is detected, but obviously, no acceleration.
  2. Booting only with AAPL,ig-platform-id set to 19160000, the system boots with complete acceleration but no monitor attached into any framebuffer. About this Mac reports a 1280 x 1024 monitor (Found using Anydesk and ioreg remotely.)
  3. Changing the connector type to DP or HDMI, Internal o External, platform-id is useless.

This system is getting me anxious. Because I don't find any fix for it.
Someone can help me out? Love ya!
PD: The system is an All In One with no HDMI port.

      What is working:
      BCM94360HMB Wifi and Bluetooth AirDrop, Handoff, FaceTime, Messages, App Store, iCloud, etc. Intel HD 530 (QE/CI tested, but now I'm using it in headless) Sleep RX 5700 (QE/CI with 2 1080p monitors connected) Sound (all ports) USB Ports Two Ethernet ports macOS with a light OC (4.12 GHz - 4.5 Ghz, XMP, ASUS optimal) ASUS HyperKit and M.2 with a KINGSTON NVMe SSD - 250 GB Hardware decoding/encoding on both HD 530 and RX 5700 (HD 530 up to HEVC, RX 5700 at the time of writing VP9) iGPU only (with QuickSync) is used in the default config.plist To use dGPU for hw decode/encode and also use Intel QuickSync you need to start with "config_headless.plist" This will use iMac17,2 SMBIOS and shikigva=80 To use dGPU only boot with "config_amd.plist" also disable iGPU completely in BIOS. This will use iMacPro1,1 SMBIOS without iGPU System Integrity Protection is Enabled by default. If you need to boot with SIP disabled you may use "config_debug.plist" or disable it manually in Clover settings. If you want Enabled SIP but with allowing unsigned kexts you may boot with "CsrActiveConfig = 0x01"  
      What is not working:
      -

      Getting ready for installation:
      Download the bootpack (Clover v5126): Click here -> Z170-DELUXE_Clover_v5126.zip (Tested: El Capitan 10.11.6 -> macOS Big Sur 11.0.1)  
      Installation:
      Create an installer with any method you know (- Mac: createinstallmedia, gibMacOS - Windows: Transmac, Vmware, Win32diskimager, gibMacOS) Copy my Clover folder to the USB's EFI folder Boot with the Installer USB If you have any problem (kp or freeze) boot with config_debug.plist to see what causes the issue  
      Post Installation:
      Download Clover Configurator and generate a new Serial Number for yourself  
      Some pictures:

       
       



       
      El Capitan 10.11.6
       
      Sierra 10.12.6
       
      High Sierra 10.13.6
       
      Mojave 10.14.6
       
      Catalina 10.15.7
       
      Catalina & Windows 10 Dual-Boot (clean install, on one drive):
       Boot into your Mac installer, Create 2 partitions in GUID table (1 for Win (I used FAT32 but I think it doesn't matter what you choose), 1 for Mac)
       Install Mac, boot with your USB, mount your EFI partition (use terminal or an EFI mounter app), create an EFI folder (if there is no folder), copy the CLOVER folder I attached to the EFI folder, restart
      Boot into your Win installer, Format the partition you created for Win, install. 
      Now, it's automatically booting into Windows. To use Clover open cmd in administrator, type: 
      bcdedit /set {bootmgr} path \EFI\CLOVER\CLOVERX64.efi  
      You're done! It will booting into Clover when you start the system, and you can select Win or Mac (or another OS if installed on a 3rd partition).
       
      IF YOU GETTING ERRORS DURING WINDOWS INSTALLATION (could not be formatted, etc):
      Make sure you have GPT partitions, and GPT (UEFI) installer, also disconnect all external storage drives (except the installer USB)  
      Mounting EFI from Windows:
      Open cmd in administrator mode and type: mountvol b: /s (This will mount your EFI) Open Total Commander or Explorer++ in administrator mode to manage EFI mountvol b: /d (This will unmount your EFI)

      Notes:
      According to @albertoacj's comment Sidecar is only working in headless iGPU mode when using an AMD GPU, keep that in mind No need to change anything inside Clover from El Capitan to Big Sur For macOS Mojave and older you might need the full AirPortBrcmFixup.kext for full WiFi support

      The Big Sur is officially out, I downloaded and installed on my HP Elitebook 820 G3 Skylake i7-6600u HD520. The process took a long time to install since it had to boot 3 times and each time took 20 minutes. There are changes that need to be made from Catalina: need to use OpenCore 0.6.4, CtlnaAHCIPort.kext (for SATA to be seen), add boot arg brcmfx-driver = 2 for DW1820a wifi to work, replaced SMCBatteryManager.kext with ACPIBatteryManager.kext for the battery to show up.
       
      Cheers,

      Hi,
      I have been using my hackintosh for a while without any problems, until my monitor is replaced with a new one... Previously I was using 2 monitors connected via HDMI + DVI, now - with new one, I am using HDMI + DP, and my hackintosh stopped working. On every boot, everything I see is black screen... When I connect only one monitor (via HDMI or DP) - everything works fine.
      I have tried many things: 
      - CSM off / on 
      - PEG + iGPU (64MB/128MB) / only PEG 
      - SSDT patching / DeviceProperties patch 
      - VBIOS reflash 
      - BIOS reflash 
      - Changing cables 
      - Resetting NVRAM
      - Changing SMBIOS
      Nothing helps…
      Fun fact - for 2 days everything was ok, the black screen problem appeared suddenly... So I am writing this post, maybe someone more knowledgeable will be able to help me
      Hardware: 
      - Intel Core i5 4690k 3,5GHz (overclocked to 4,4GHz) 
      - MSI Z97 Gaming 3 
      - MSI Radeon R9 390 8GB 
      - Kingston 16GB DDR3
      Software: 
      - macOS Big Sur 
      - Dual boot with Windows 10
      Screens: 
      - Acer VG272U [email protected] (connected via DP 1.4)
      - LG 23MP48 [email protected] (connected via HDMI 2.0)

      Hackintosh: 
      - OpenCore 0.6.3 
      - iMac15,1 
      - Full EFI: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1eul7SnOEunfJOxBGD3Ygcmkc9f80DrlN/view?usp=sharing
      BIOS: 
      - UEFI Boot Mode 
      - CFG Lock and VT-D are disabled 
      - iGPU is disabled right now, but it doesn't make any difference somehow in this situation. iGPU is HD4600
      More Info: 
      - I have SSDT patch in my ACPI folder, which works fine - R9 390 works pretty fast, but I have never edited AMD8000Controller - is it required? 
      - I also have all needed kexts (AppleALC, AetherosE2200Ethernet, Lilu, VirtualSMC, WhateverGreen) 
      - if I made linguistic mistakes somewhere - forgive me, I don't use English every day

      Installing macOS® Sierra® on Gigabyte GA-Z170X-Gaming 5 rev 1.0
      Intel® Core i7 6700K
      nVidia® Graphics Maxwell® or Pascal®
      Disclaimer:
      This guide will assume that you know what you are doing and also assumes that you have already made a backup of your data before making any changes to your hardware or software. If you have not made a backup STOP HERE! and create one.
      I will not be held responsible for any data loss or any damage you might cause to your computer in the process of installing macOS® on your computer.
      By following this guide, you acknowledge that installing Mac OS X® and macOS® on any hardware that is not produced by Apple® is illegal and you will be responsible if you break any laws.
      All the trademarks and copy rights belong to their respective owners.
      This guide is only for your personal use and your information, therefore if you break any laws by using this manual you will be responsible for it not me. Any commercial use of the contents of this guide is prohibited.
      If I forget to mention your name or someone else’s name in the credits section forgive my negligence and feel free to contact me and I will add your name/s.
      This guide is written specifically for the hardware specifications I’m using, but the principal in general might apply to other hardware with similar specs with the exception of DSDT and SSDT files.
      Important Notes:
      1. Always backup your data before making any changes to your hardware or software.
      2. Always keep a bootable Clover USB disk with the latest working configurations just in case.
      3. I suggest you use another bootable USB for testing and not to edit the EFI folder on the hard drive.
      4. Preferably use the latest BIOS (F21 at the time of writing) version and the latest version of Clover EFI bootloader (4077 at the time of writing).
      5. There are two main versions of Clover EFI bootloader available in this package. One for the users with a nVidia GPU and the other one is for the users with IntelHD 530 GPU.
      6. So many parts of this tutorial are universal and they apply to all Hackintosh and Apple computers, like creating the Bootable USB disk drive or mounting the EFI partition. So, you can use them on all the computers that run macOS or even use them for installing macOS on other Hackintosh computers.
      7. The config.plist, the DSDT.aml file and the SSDT tables are specifically created for the GA-Z170X-Gaming 5 motherboard so do not use them on other hardware because they simply won’t work or even if they do you might experience some problems and errors.
      8. This tutorial is based on my personal experience. So, you might need to make some extra adjustments.
       
      Downloading the macOS® Sierra installer from App Store:
      Download the version of macOS® you want to install on your computer from App Store, macOS® Sierra. For downloading the macOS® installer you’ll need an Apple® computer or a working Hackintosh and a valid Apple ID. Although downloading macOS® Sierra® doesn’t require an Apple ID but if you are going to use your Hackintosh for day to day use you’re going to need a valid Apple ID.
      You can download the macOS® Sierra® installer by using the link below:
      macOS® Sierra® 10.12.5:
      https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/macos-sierra/id1127487414?mt=12&ls=1
      You can also use App Store directly for downloading it. The “Install macOS® Sierra.app” will be saved to the following path once downloaded: /Applications/
       
      Creating bootable USB Disk for macOS®:
      Plug in a USB flash drive (8Gb or larger) and launch disk utility to format the flash drive.
      To create a bootable USB drive for macOS®, everything must be exactly as shown in the picture below.
      Once you successfully formatted the flash drive, open Terminal from /Applications/Utilities:
      Copy and paste the following command into terminal without the “”:
      For macOS® Sierra®:
      “sudo /Applications/Install\ macOS\ Sierra.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia --volume /Volumes/Untitled --applicationpath /Applications/Install\ macOS\ Sierra.app —nointeraction” Press return/enter to run the command. You’ll be asked to give your password and once you type your password press return/enter and the process will start.
      Depending on the speed of the USB drive you are using it will take about 5 to 30 minutes to complete the process. It took about 5 minutes on my computer to create the bootable disk on a USB 3.0 flash drive.
       
      How to mount the EFI partition using command line:
      Launch the terminal application again if you closed it previously.
      Type “diskutil list” and press return/enter
      You’ll see list of all the Internal and the external hard drives 
      Type “diskutil mount /dev/diskXsX” and press return/enter
      First X is the number of the disk and the second X is the number of the partition
      In this case the command will be:
      e.g. diskutil mount /dev/disk2s1
      Now you can see the EFI partition of disk6 is mounted on the desktop, if you can’t see the partition on the desktop you can find it in finder window’s “Sidebar” under “Devices”

      BIOS Settings:
      Now it’s time to configure the BIOS before installing macOS®.
      First of all, it’s better to “Load Optimized Defaults” settings on the BIOS so we could start from scratch without having any misconfigurations.
      You need to make the following changes to get macOS® working on your pc:
      BIOS:
      Fast Boot = Disabled
      Windows 8/10 = Windows 8/10 WHQL or Other OS
      CSM Support = Disabled
      Secure Boot = Not Active
      Attempt Secure Boot = Disabled
      Peripherals
      Initial Display Output = PCIe 1 Slot (Only If you are using a nVidia GPU, if you are using an AMD GPU you’ll need to enable IGFX and set it to primary in order to boot into macOS® Sierra®)
      Trusted computing, Security Device Support = Disable
      Super IO Configuration, Serial IO = Disable
      USB Configuration, Legacy USB Support = Enabled
      USB Configuration, XHCI Hand-off = Enabled
      USB Configuration, USB Mass Storage Drive Support = Enabled
      USB Configuration, Port 60/64 Emulation = Enabled
      SATS And RST Configuration = AHCI
      Chipset
      VT-d = Disabled (If you need it add “dart=0” flag to config.plist under Boot section)
      Internal Graphics = Disabled (Only If you are using a discreet GPU if you are using an AMD GPU you’ll need to enable IGFX and set it to primary in order to boot into macOS® Sierra®)
      In Chipset, IOAPIC 24-119 Entries = Disable
      If you are using Intel Graphics or IGFX
      In Chipset, Internal Graphics = Enabled 
      In Chipset, DVMT Pre-Allocated = set it to 64 
      In Chipset, DVMT Total Gfx Mem = set it to max
      Save and Exit.
       
      Installing Clover EFI Bootloader:
      In order to boot successfully into macOS® you’ll need to install a Bootloader on the drive you are using as the main bootable device whether is a flash drive or a hard disk drive.
      There are number of bootloaders that could be used to boot up the macOS® on a PC computer or a Hackintosh but we will only use Clover EFI Bootloader and here is how to properly install and configure Clover EFI Bootloader on your computer.
      In this section, we will be installing the UEFI version of the Clover so if you are using the Legacy BIOS version for whatever reason this guide is not for you.
      You can download the latest version of Clover EFI Bootloader from:
      https://sourceforge.net/projects/cloverefiboot/
      As I mentioned before in the first page of this manual the latest version of the Clover EFI Bootloader is Clover_v2.4k_4077.
       
      Stage 1:
      Once you have downloaded the bootloader double click the installer package to start the installation process. The process will only take few minutes and after that you need to customize or optimize the contents of the EFI partition which you’ve installed clover into. Please make sure you select the USB drive you created earlier as shown below and not the HDD of the computer you are using.
      If you see the following dialog after double clicking the installer package, all you need to do is to right click on the Clover_v2.4k_r4077.pkg and from the menu select open and once more click the open button. 
      Click continue and read the “Important Information” or not and then click continue once more.
      You need to select the location that you want to install Clover EFI Bootloader to.
      Make sure that you are installing clover to the right location, basically you must choose the drive that you have installed macOS® Sierra® onto unless you want to install the bootloader on another drive, say a flash drive.
      Now you need to customize which components of the bootloader to be installed, if not you won’t be able to boot into macOS® at all.
      Check the following items and then click install:
      1. Install for UEFI booting only (Unified Extensible Firmware Interface)
      2. Install Clover in the ESP (EFI System Partition) or (Extensible Firmware Interface System Partition)
      3. Install can also choose a theme for your clover bootloader and the CloverThemeManager.app to change or modify the themes later.
      4. Install Drivers64UEFI that apply to your system you will need at least these two drivers:
      1. EmuVariableUefi-64
      2. OsxAptioFix2Drv-64
      You can also choose other drivers if they apply to your computer and if you need them, otherwise you’re good to go.
      5. You can also install the RC script on the target volume to enable the shell command prompt in clover’s boot screen.
      Once the installation is started, the EFI partition of the hard disk or USB drive that you are installing clover to will be mounted on the desktop, if you can’t see the partition on the desktop you can find it in the finder window’s “Sidebar” under “Devices”
       
      Stage 2:
      In this stage, you need to configure the config.plist and the other components on the EFI partition either by modifying the config.plist inside the /EFI/Clover/ folder using “TextEdit” or any other text editor application that you like or using “Clover Configurator” (recommended) application which has a GUI for editing the config.plist and it has some other useful built-in apps such as EFI mounter or a Base64 to HEX converter etc. or you can just simply replacing the “Clover” folder with the one that is provided with this guide.
      At this moment you might not be familiar with all the settings and options inside the config.plist file and Clover Configurator, no need to worry.
      You can easily replace the whole “Clover” folder inside the “EFI” folder on the EFI partition of your bootable disk (hard disk drive or USB flash drive) with the folder included with this guide and you’ll be good to go as along as your main components specifically your CPU and GPU are the same as mine.
      Otherwise you might need some additional settings and flags to be added to the config.plist.
      For instance, if you are using a NVMe SSD disk drive you’ll need to add proper patches in order to get it to work.
       
      You can find more about clover and its settings at: https://clover-wiki.zetam.org/Home and you can find “Clover Configurator” at: http://mackie100projects.altervista.org
       
      How to enable kext using Clover EFI Bootloader:
      In this section I will briefly explain how to install kexts that are needed to make your macOS® work more properly and efficiently.
      As you know all the hardware components in a computer need a so called “Driver” to operate correctly in the operating system.
      The same principle applies to macOS® and Mac OS X®. We call them “Kext” files or “Extension” files.
      By default, Apple provides all the required kext files with the operating system to run on a legitimate Apple computer.
      On the other hand, on a Hackintosh you need to install some extra kext files created by the community to obtain full functionality of your computer. You can either install them directly to “System/Library/Extensions” folder of macOS® Drive or you can place them into the EFI folder on the EFI partition of your bootable drive, which is a better way because if those files are the modified version of an original kext file that Apple is provided after each major update they will be replaced is the OS and you’ll lose the functionality of that particular component or more components.
      For example, Maxwell and Pascal GPUs have the “Boot to black screen” issue with some SMBIOS settings like iMac17,1, iMac15 and MacPro 6,1 system definitions. It means if you use one of those system definitions your computer will show a black screen after loading macOS® even after installing the nVidiaWebDrivers.
      So, you’ll need to either change the SMBIOS definition or you need to patch the “AppleGraphicsDevicePolicy.kext” to avoid the black screen.
      Once you patch the file with whatever method, if you install macOS® update you’ll need to apply the patch all over again.
      Besides changing the system files in macOS® will mix up the file permission of the files and if it’s not properly installed or if you forget to fix the permission of the files you might render the whole operating system useless and you’ll need to either fix the permissions on the /System/Library/Extensions or for short /S/L/E or you might need to reinstall the whole operating system from scratch. 
      For each version of macOS®, there is a folder inside the following path:
      /EFI/Clover/kext/
      So, you can copy the kexts you need inside the folder that correlates with the version of macOS® you are using.
      Even if you update the OS, the files inside that path won’t get changed.
      How to properly adding kext file to /System/Library/Extensions:
      There are several ways to install additional kexts on macOS, but I will only discuss two methods that are the easiest ways to install kext without having to type any commands in terminal.
       
      Using Kext Utility:
      By using kext utility you can easily install kext files inside /System/Library/Extension.
      All you have to do is to open the Kext Utility app, type in your password and drag the kext file you want to install into the app’s window and it will install them in to the path give above. The good thing about this app is that it will automatically repairs the permission of the /System/Library/Extension folder and the kext files inside it.
      Once the process is done you can reboot the system and see the results.
       
      Kext Wizard:
      Kext wizard is another handy tool with more functions built into it, you can select the path for installing the kexts files even to another operating system on another volume.
      You can repair the permissions and rebuild system kext cache. You can even load kexts files and test them or list the kext that are already loaded in the system.
       
      Post Installation:
      To have a fully functional Hackintosh you need to add the following kext files and DSDT/SSDT files and tables.
      Kexts:

      Note:
      Install CodecCommander.kext v. 2.4.0 inside /System/Library/Extensions/ and set darkwake=8 in config.plist to solve the audio after sleep issue.
      I tried installing it inside /EFI/Clover/kexts/10.12 and /EFI/Clover/kexts/Other and it didn’t work.
      I also tried other versions of CodecCommander.kext but none of them worked except for the v. 2.4.0.
      If you don’t want to use Lilu.kext and AppleALC.kext and see the read the “Other methods for activating audio section”.

      Note:
      I also tested the system without USBInjectAll.kext and all my USB 2.0 and USB 3.0 ports were fully functional so it’s up to you whether to use it or not.

      VERY IMPORTANT NOTE:
      Before you start using macOS® Sierra®, you need to change the SMBIOS of the config.plist:
      You have to change the SMBIOS settings before starting to use macOS® Sierra®, because the config.plist that is included in this guide doesn’t have a serial number for your Hackintosh, so you won’t be able to use any of Apple’s services without a serial number and a hardware UUID. It’s imperative to do so specially if you are going to use your Hackintosh for daily use. If you don’t change the serial number you won’t be able to use App Store, iCloud, iMessage etc. It’s highly recommended that you use iMac 17,1 SMBIOS as your default. iMac 17,1 and iMac 17,2 models use Skylake processors in Apple's original iMacs.
      For changing the SMBIOS you can use the built-in wizard inside “Clover Configurator” under SMBIOS Section. To open the wizard, click the small magic wand on the right side of the window to use the wizard.
       
      Audio:
      By using the EFI folder included with this guide and by using the patched DSDT/SSDT tables, “AppleALC.kext” and “Lilu.kext” you won’t need to do much to make the audio active on your Hackintosh.
      Just install the macOS® Sierra®, copy the EFI folder and audio is activated by default, HDMI audio will be active once you install nVidiaWebDrivers and restart the computer.
      If the audio didn’t work, you can rebuild prelinked kernel and kexts cache by using the following commands in terminal:
      1. sudo nvram -c 2. sudo purge 3. sudo rm -f /System/Library/Caches/com.apple.kext.caches/Startup/kernelcache && sudo touch /System/Library/Extensions && sudo kextcache -u / sudo update_dyld_shared_cache -force Or you can use “Kext Utility” to repair permissions on /System/Library/Extensions and /Library/Extensions and also it will also rebuilds the system cache for you.
      Kext Utility could be found at:
      http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?app=core&module=attach&section=attach&attach_id=186603
       
      Note:
      If you see the following output in terminal it means that you forgot to mount the EFI partition, mount it and run the command again.
       
      Other methods for activating the Audio:
      1. audio_codecdetect.command
      This command will give you useful information about the audio chipsets and devices that are available on the system, after you run the command, the output will be like this:
       
      This means that the audio chipset is supported and you can go to the next step of installing the audio using Toleda's scripts.
       
      2. audio_cloverALC-120_v1.0f3.command
      Type in the password and press return/enter
      All you need to do now is to reboot the system and you’ll have audio!
       
      3. HDMI Audio
      For activating the HDMI Audio for you need to run audio_cloverHDMI-120.command
      This command will detect the audio codec for you integrated graphics and discrete GPU and will add the proper SSDT table to /EFI/Cover/ACPI/patched folder
       
      Audio Troubleshooting:
      If after running the audio_cloverHDMI-120_v1.0d.command you see the following statement
       
      It means you either don’t have a patched DSDT.aml file or SSDT tables and no patches are present inside the config.plist so you need to either add the DSDT/SSDT tables or add patches yourself.
      Don’t be alarmed it’s so easy.
      Open clover configurator and after mounting the EFI partition, open the config.plist and add the following patch :
      Under ACPI, DSDT patches select “change HDAS to HDEF” from “List of Patches” and this will add the following code in the config.plist
      </dict> <key>Comment</key> <string>change HDAS to HDEF</string> <key>Disabled</key> <false/> <key>Find</key> <data> SERBUw== </data> <key>Replace</key> <data> SERFRg== </data> </dict> or
      Comment: change HDAS to HDEF

      Replace*[HEX]48444546
       
      Graphics:
      This section will be dedicated to nVidia GPUs specially Maxwell and Pascal. If you are using any other nVidia or AMD graphics you can skip this section.
      We tested these instructions on an EVGA 1070 Superclocked GPU and a Gigabyte nVidia GeForce GTX960 GAMING-4GB (Please include the brand for reference).
      As you might know the 10 series nVidia GPUs or Pascal are not compatible with Mac OS X El Capitan and earlier versions of macOS® but 9 series and Maxwell are compatible and they both need nVidiaWebDrivers to be fully functional.
      For macOS® Sierra® 10.12.5 you’ll need to download 378.05.05.15f01
      https://images.nvidia.com/mac/pkg/378/WebDriver-378.05.05.15f01.pkg
      Solution 1:
      If you are looking for an easy way to get the GPU working all you have to is to copy the Lilu.kext and nVidaiGraphicsFixup.kext inside the kext folder in clover EFI bootloader.
      The full path is /EFI/Clover/kext/10.12
      Once you finished installing macOS® and nVidiaWebDrivers you’ll need to add the following flags and setting to the config.plist
      Under “Boot” section add or remove nvda_drv=1 if necessary. I don’t need to use it on my computer. You don’t need to inject anything in “Graphics” section Under “System Parameters” check “NvidiaWeb”   When installing Clover EFI bootloader under “Drivers64UEFI” install “EMUVariableUefi-64” // I also use OsxAptioFix2Drv.efi, never tested without it.
      and that’s it!
       
      Solution 2:
      If you don’t want to use nVidaiGraphicsFixup.kext you only have two options:
      1. Run AGDP-fix.app to edit the “AppleGraphicsDevicePolicy.kext” to fix “Boot to Black Screen” issue 2. Or you can edit the “AppleGraphicsDevicePolicy.kext” manually using terminal. If you choose the second solution for any reason remember after each major update you need to apply the patch all over again.
       
      Wi-Fi:
      TP-Link WDN4800 works out of the box without any hassle.
      The only problem that you might encounter with it is "ATHR: unknown locale: 21" error in the verbose boot.
      The Atheros patch is to avoid the series of "ATHR: unknown locale: 21" messages in the verbose boot which they will be registered in message console's logs and they will make the log file bigger. The patch will fix the WiFi location and will stop the error and therefore there will be no more logs.
      Without the patch, the WiFi will work just the same but with lots of messages in the log.
      If you don’t use the TP-Link WDN4800 you can remove the patch or simply leave it as disabled.
       
      USB 3.0:
      Under Kernel and Kext Patches add the following to “KextsToPatch”:
      This patch will raise the limit of the USB ports from 15 to 26.
      For macOS® Sierra
      Name*: AppleUSBXHCIPCI
      Find* [HEX] : 83bd74ff ffff10
      Replace [HEX] : 83bd74ff ffff1b
      Comment: Raise change 15 port limit to 26 in XHCI kext (100-series)
      MatchOS: 10.12.x
      You also might need to add RehabMan’s “USBInjectAll.kext” to the following path under “/EFI/Clover/kexts/10.12” for macOS® Sierra
      Note:
      If you are using a patched DSDT or SSDT tables you don’t need to use any DSDT patches in clover and the “USBInjectAll.kext” you will have full functional USB 2.0 and USB 3.0 ports. I didn’t test USB 3.1 ports because I have no USB 3.1 device to test it!
      The port limit patch must only be temporary, you will need to create your own custom SSDT-UIAC to only inject the ports you use.
       
      Custom SSDT-UIAC:
      A quick rundown on how to create a custom SSDT-UIAC.
      Add the following patch to your config.plist if you don’t already have the patch.
      <dict> <key>Comment</key> <string>change 15 port limit to 26 in XHCI kext (100-series)</string> <key>MatchOS</key> <string>10.12.x</string> <key>Name</key> <string>com.apple.driver.usb.AppleUSBXHCIPCI</string> <key>Find</key> <data>g710////EA==</data> <key>Replace</key> <data>g710////Gw==</data> </dict> or
       
      Name*: AppleUSBXHCIPCI
      Find* [HEX] : 83bd74ff ffff10
      Replace [HEX] : 83bd74ff ffff1b
      Comment: Raise change 15 port limit to 26 in XHCI kext (100-series)
      MatchOS: 10.12.x
       
      The USBInjectAll.kext provided in this guide needs to be and stay installed.
      Download ioregistryexplorer Version 3.0.3 from http://mac.softpedia.com/get/System-Utilities/IORegistryExplorer.shtml
      or download IOJones which is an alternative to IORegistryExplorer at: https://sourceforge.net/projects/iojones/
      Download MaciASL from https://bitbucket.org/RehabMan/os-x-maciasl-patchmatic/downloads/RehabMan-MaciASL-2017-0117.zip and extract, drag MaciASL.app into /Applications. (Credit RehabMan)
      Download OS-X-USB-Inject-All Master from: (Credit RehabMan)
      https://github.com/RehabMan/OS-X-USB-Inject-All/archive/master.zip
      and extract the zip file.
      Inside the OS-X-USB-Inject-All-master folder you will find SSDT-UIAC-ALL.dsl, copy it to your desktop.
      Open ioregistryexplorer and find your device id by typing XHC in the search field.
      Open SSDT-UIAC-ALL.dsl with MaciASL and find your appropriate device id section.
      Remove all other sections in the SSDT-UIAC-ALL.dsl that do not correspond with your device id leaving just the one section. Skylake does not have a EHCI controller so “HUB1”, ”HUB2”, ”EH01”, "EH02" can be removed and in my case I can also remove "8086_1e31", "8086_8xxx", "8086_9xxx", "8086_9cb1", "8086_9d2f" and "8086_a2af".
      Compile the file to make sure there are no errors in the code and then save the file with “ACPI Machine Language Binary”. 
      Now we turn our attention to ioregistryexplorer, while you have ioregistry open go to the XHC section and take note of the HSxx or SSxx locations that have devices attached. Now plug in a USB 2.0 device into all USB 2.0 you NEED and do the same with USB 3.0 ports with USB 2 and 3 devices and take note of them all.
      Returning back to the SSDT-UIAC-ALL.dsl you will see all ports listed, you need to remove the ones you did not take note of and you can also add a comment to the ones you keep. 
      UsbConnector values = USB 2.0 = 0, USB 3.0 = 3. Internal = 255
      USB 2.0 devices plugged into USB 3.0 ports HSxx are still marked as USB 3.0 = 3.
      Internal devices such as Bluetooth etc are marked as 255
      Once you gone through and done this to all the devices you need and removed the ones you don’t you can save your SSDT-UIAC-ALL.dsl in MaciASL. Make sure you rename it to SSDT-UIAC and that the file format is ACPI Machine Language Binary
      Copy and paste the resulting SSDT-UIAC.aml into your EFI/EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/patched folder.
      Disable the port limit patch in config.plist and add SSDT-UIAC.aml into SortedOrder if needed.
      Reboot.
       
      Open ioregistryexplorer and test the ports you left enabled USB 2 & 3.
      The number of ports you should see in ioreg should be significantly reduced as they are not being injected anymore.

      Catalina 10.15.7
      macOS & Windows 10 Dual-Boot:
      Dual-boot clean install (on one drive), UEFI Only:
       
       Boot into your Mac installer, Create 2 partitions in GUID table (1 for Win (I used FAT32 but I think it doesn't matter what you choose), 1 for Mac),   Install Mac, boot with your USB, mount your EFI partition (use terminal or an EFI mounter app), create an EFI folder (if there is no folder), copy the CLOVER folder I attached to the EFI folder, restart,  Boot into your Win installer, Format the partition you created for Win, install.   Now, it's automatically booting into Windows. To use Clover open cmd in administrator, type:  bcdedit /set {bootmgr} path \EFI\CLOVER\CLOVERX64.efi  
            5.  You're done! It will booting into Clover when you start the system, and you can select Win or Mac (or another OS if installed on a 3rd partition).
       
      IF YOU GETTING ERRORS DURING WINDOWS INSTALLATION (could not be formatted, etc):
      Make sure you have GPT partitions, and GPT (UEFI) installer, also disconnect all external storage drives (except the installer USB)  
      IF YOU CAN'T MOUNT YOUR EFI PARTITION (No EFI partition found):
      It's because your EFI is not 200 MB or not an "Apple" original EFI,  but don't worry, try another EFI mounter, or mount from terminal (I used EFI Mountain Show: Getting errors, but you can mount and use without problem) You also could "mount" the EFI from Windows: 1st method: open cmd in administrator mode and type:
      diskpart list vol (Now select the "System" volume,(FAT 32) For example I select 4) sel vol 4 list part (Select System type partition, for example 2) sel part 2 assign letter=b (This will "mount" your EFI partition) Open Explorer++ in administrator mode to manage EFI
      remove letter=b (This will "unmount" your EFI) 2nd method: open cmd in administrator mode and type:
      mountvol b: /s (This will mount your EFI) Open Explorer++ in administrator mode to manage EFI
      mountvol b: /d (This will unmount your EFI) Useful Applications for Mac:
