Huawei Matebook X Pro running Catalina


Recommended Posts

Successfully created a Huawei Matebook X Pro Hackintosh today starting with Catalina 10.15.3.


2018 stock model:


GeForce MX150




The CLOVER from gnodipac886's Github worked for the 10.15.3 install:



Thank you gnodipac886!


I created a UEFI-bootable USB with a Cover partition and a Catalina install partition. I used the direct CLOVER folder from Github and the config.plist provided, not the config-install.plist, and the install worked without issues.


I then upgraded the laptop to Catalina 10.15.5 and it hung on loading the Intel graphics firmware, so I added -disablegfxfirmware to the Clover boot args and successfully upgraded to 10.15.5 through system preferences software update.


All major features are working:




Battery Status

Backlit Keyboard



I'm using a dongle for the Wi-Fi.

Really cool design. I was wondering where is the webcam since it's not really noticeable from your image and for sure all new laptops have to have a webcam. I did a little research and found that it's hidden as in key on the keyboard between F6 and F7 that pops up when in use. I'm not sure how well it works, if you have to look down..does it show your chin and nostril the whole time. 😆

LOL! I tried it out the other day and yes, great view of my ugly chin unless I look a little bit down. Not too bad, with regard to my nostrils... (see the attached image)...


If you do not look down a little, it mainly looks like you are staring up into the air.


Still, I love the overall design!

I've continued to update my Matebook as new versions of kexts become available. The most exciting update is that the native Intel WiFi is now working using a new itlwm kext and the new HeliPort app. They also work on the ASUS laptop I configured back in May.


I have attached the versions I'm currently using. Here are the links to where I got them:
