OpenCore files for Asus TUF 15
This repo was created after I was able to boot with the desktop files for Comet Lake platform. Most of the work to get this to work was done by MaLd0n, which can be found here: https://www.olarila.com/topic/12233-eblogexitbsstart-error-opencore-big-sur-111/?tab=comments#comment-138034 All credits for the DSDT file go to him.

Because of the Comet Lake (10th Gen), we’ll choose the MacBookPro16,4 SMBIOS:
Run GenSMBIOS, pick option 1 for downloading MacSerial and Option 3 for selecting out SMBIOS. This will give us an output similar to the following: (do not use these values, they are unvalid – use your own so you will have unique values) Type: MacBookPro16,4
Board Serial: C02826303CDHRPC8B
The order is Product | Serial | Board Serial (MLB)
The Type part gets copied to Generic -> SystemProductName.
The Serial part gets copied to Generic -> SystemSerialNumber.
The Board Serial part gets copied to Generic -> MLB.
The SmUUID part gets copied toto Generic -> SystemUUID.
We set Generic -> ROM to either an Apple ROM (dumped from a real Mac), your NIC MAC address, or any random MAC address (could be just 6 random bytes, for this guide we’ll use 11223300 0000. After install follow the Fixing iServices page on how to find your real MAC Address)
Reminder that you want either an invalid serial or valid serial numbers but those not in use, you want to get a message back like: “Invalid Serial” or “Purchase Date not Validated”
