Your Clover config is totally incorrect with incomplete SMBIOS section, irrelevant patches and incorrect graphics settings. Then, there is no reference to any renaming of the Embedded Controller and that's the 1st thing you need to look into with Catalina. It's been specifically stated since Catalina was released and clearly mentioned in Catalina articles pinned into Our Picks section.


I suggest you consult our existing guides for Kaby Lake/Coffee Lake Latitude laptops in our Guides section to begin with.
