I have followed initially the guide below (it helped me a lot). Thank you guys for this @Max.1974 @Jake Lo!!!!
After a successful Catalina installation, I've used the CLOVER folder from the guide but it never boots up.
So, I did a clean install and used a config.plist from RehabMan. So far, so good (er, more or less).
During the boot I can see lots of ACPI errors.
I'm writing this message from the Lenovo E470 itself I've buy a SSD and I'm just waiting for it.
Meanwhile, I'm trying to make it (almost) perfect.
network - only cabled (ethernet)
keyboard - although it is a ABNT2, I'm using it as a US International
trackpad - not as good as I need - sometimes the click is not working
trackpoint - works but not the buttons
video - activated and using an external monitor through HDMI
screen brightness (with keyboard keys too)
SD Card Reader
However, some things are not working:
sound - only through headphones - using layout 15 (have tried all possible layouts)
battery - not showing status
wifi - not using - maybe I buy some wireless card in the future (also have 2 different usb dongles to test)
Here is my current CLOVER folder and also codec_dump I made using Linux.
I want to make it fully functional and learn some new tricks during the journey.
I also want to make a more detailed guide to help other people.
Any help is welcome.
