Welcome to OSXL!

I'm assuming you have an Intel Wifi and I2C touchpad. Give these files a try. Make a backup of your files before replacing with these.

A lot of your kexts are old and could use an update though.

Ok, add the SSDT to ACPI

Add the kexts to Kexts folder and replace the Config file

Fixes include Fn+key for brightness, add Intel Wifi and BT, enable I2C touchpad

Sir, the task has been done, and the lighting control is already working, but the Wi-Fi is not working
The real problem is that I cannot install programs normally, as all programs after installing them show an error message attached to you with illustrations
Also, there is a problem with defining the sound card that does not work despite the appearance of the speaker working sign
And upon the endeavor on my part in trying to define it works from external reputation only, but the handfree does not work and it is very required
Please help
If it is possible to refer to the high sierra system, I want you to have the EFI file that works with it
Because my attempt with her was a failure
An EFI file is also attached after modification

The most important question now is what is the reason for the emergence of error messages when trying to install any program such as phpstorm or phtpshop. Almost all of the programs do not work and this message appears
As for the sound card, the image was for an old attempt. It is now working, but the handfree does not work
Please focus on the reason why the message appeared
I was asking you about the high sierra system to get rid of these letters
Greetings galore
