  • Original Intel WiFi/Bluetooth was replaced with a macOS compatible one. (Used here: Broadcom BCM94352Z. But the Dell DW1830 should work better if you are dual-booting with Windows)

  • EFI based

How to use this repository:


/EFI/ has a general config for OpenCore. Consider the current supported macOS version of this repository

  •  **Disable eGPU to save power

* For Sleep to work, add -wegnoegpu to your boot-args (Mojave/Catalina+). However, this makes USB-C external monitors undetectable after boot

** Prefer to use SSDT-Disable-DGPU.aml patch to save power, as it ACPI disables the eGPU. This also makes USB-C external monitors undetectable after boot

-wegnoegpu can be used in conjunction with SSDT-Disable-DGPU.aml
