I have installed macOS Catalina 15.5.6 on my laptop Acer Aspire V3-574G Legacy mode as UEFI wouldn’t work for me . I used Vanilla Image Olarila ( Clover )

I boot to the Hackintosh successfully with no issues , Copied the EFI from the USB Install Catalina to my SSD where I installed the Hackintosh and reboot .

What Worked from the start:

- Ethernet

What I had to install Kext :

- Audio (Works good)

- USB (Works good)

Issues I have : which I need fixes for.

- Brightness is so low , can’t control it to make it higher , When I boot to macOS on the logo brightness is fine till the loading bar reach half it dims and goes to really low brightness

( I have tried installing the kext IntelBacklight.kext and also tried AppleBackLightFixUp.kext) and added SSDT-PNLF.aml to my ACPI/Patched , but nothing worked

- TrackPad ( laptop mouse pad ) works fine but with no functions like scrolling down for up , using commands like 3 fingers to switch to another desktop or anything like that.

- Microphone and webcam doesn't work 

- WiFi doesn’t work doesn’t even show in settings , my laptop wifi card is ( Qualcomm Atheros QCNFA34AC )

- Nvidia GeForce , ( I have Nvidia GeForce 940M 4GB )

- I have Intel HD 5500 ( I5-5200U 2.2GHz ) I’m not sure if it’s Working on the Hackintosh or not , but everything is smooth and I can see the transparency in dock also in launchpad , I have also installed Photoshop and it works fine so for the intel I think its working good .

 

Now this is everything with my Hackintosh , it’s amazing I just want those fixes , for my Hackintosh and any further advices from you to make it perfect , if I get those fixes I think Hackintosh will be my daily used machine

 

Here is a link to all the files I could provide of my Hackintosh , my used ( EFI , RunMe , also System/Library/Extensions ) if you need any further files I can provide please let me know ,
