  • Fingerprint sensor
    • Have used SSDT-USB to disable it in order to save power
  • Intel Bluetooth only works after warm restart from Windows
  • Intel Wi-Fi(Intel Wireless 8265)
    • Buy a USB Wi-Fi dongle or supported wireless card

What's not Working in OpenCore

  • All the things in What's not Working in Clover section
  • No theme
  • Slightly slower booting speed

Need more testing...

These not working items do not represent OpenCore bootloader is weaker than Clover, but do relate to my lack of experience.

What can work better

Installation

Please refer to the detailed installation tutorial Xiaomi Mi Notebook Pro High Sierra 10.13.6 or video tutorial Xiaomi NoteBook PRO HACKINTOSH INSTALLATION GUIDE !!!.

A complete EFI archive is available in releases page, thanks to the continuous update of stevezhengshiqi.

  • You can also update EFI by running the following command in Terminal:
bash -c "$(curl -fsSL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/daliansky/XiaoMi-Pro-Hackintosh/master/install.sh)"

If the tracpad doesn't work during installation, please plug a wired mouse or a wireless mouse projector before the installation. After the installation completes, open Terminal.app and type sudo kextcache -i /. Wait for the process ending and restart the device. Enjoy your trackpad!

FAQ

My device is locked by Find My Mac and can't be booted, what should I do now?

Press Fn+F11 when you are in Clover boot page. Then Clover will refresh nvram.plist, and lock message should be removed.

I opened the FileVault and I can't find macOS partition in Clover boot page, how can I solve it?

It is not recommened to open FileVault. You can press Fn + F3 in the Clover boot page and choose the icon with FileVault. Then you can boot in the system and close FileVault.

My touchpad isn't working after update.

You need to rebuild the kext cache after every system update. Use Kext Utility.app or type sudo kextcache -i / in Terminal.app. Then restart. If this still doesn't work, try to press F9.

I can't boot in Windows/Linux by using Clover, but able to boot by press F12 and select OS.

Many people met this problem by using the new version of AptioMemoryFix.efi. A workaround is to delete AptioMemoryFix.efi in /CLOVER/drivers/UEFI/ and replace it with the old version provided in #93.

Also make sure Sandbox function in Windows 10 is disabled.

Please refer to detailed FAQ in wiki FAQ.
