Have you tried the 2 versions here?

You'll need to patch DSDT to layout-id 03. You might need to restore ACPI kext to get sound to work.

For Trim, you can add the patch to your Clover config.

Can you post your system dumps like DSDT, SSDT from RW app in windows so we can support your model?

 

PS: PM me so i can add your model after looking at your patches and everything else needed.

Check out my guide here for an AppleHDA audio solution, backlight control, and TRIM support: https://osxlatitude.com/index.php?/topic/8102-gigabyte-p35w-v2/

 

My battery patch may work for your laptop too. You just want to use Rehabman's ACPIBattery, rolling back AppleACPIPlatform and such is not good or power management and such. 

 

Also, for your dsdt and ssdts, you need to extract them from linux like I did in my guide or you'll get all sorts of weird errors.

SSD is now work but I'll try to do that you recommended.

but I have a question : Should the DSDT and SSDT be extracted from linux only? not the windows?

Thank you for kindness!

You can extract them from Windows but the Linux method gets fewer errors in the long run. Learned that lesson the hard way. So yes, linux only

Completed Installing Hackintosh thanks to one of your developers. I gave him my whole EFI partition, IOREG, System Info, Manufacturer Homepage and some AppleHDA elements. Thank you very much for helping me.
