macOS Monterey Hackintosh

macOS Monterey now is at 12.3.1, I’ve been waiting to get my DW1820A working before I install it onto 2 of my HP laptops: HP Elitebook 840 G3 SkyLark (i7-6600u) and HP Envy 13 Kabylake (i7-7500u) because without the WiFi and Bluetooth working, it’s no use to install Monterey since DW1820A works perfectly in Big Sur. DW1820A is an inexpensive module and it’s fast. There are DW1820A made with Atheros which doesn’t work in macOS. Must find the one with Broadcom Chipset BCM94350. You can use the Clover configPRO132.plist or configPRO132_OC.plist. . These configs are for Kabylake HP envy 13 MacBookPro14,2.

  • There are to boot loader that will work, Clover V5146 and OpenCore 0.66 or 0.8, I preferred the Clover because I dual boot with Windows 10 and I do have problems with OpenCore when dual booting. You need to know how to create a 16GB USB flash drive Install macOS Monterey assuming you already have a macOS running.
  • You need to partition your 16GB flash drive using Windows or mac, create a partition FAT32 of 500Mb or 1Gb for Clover and OpenCore EFI boot. The rest is for Install macOS Monterey. When you have these 2 partition, you need to use macOS to create bootable macOS Monterey by using terminal and types as below assuming you already downloaded Install macOS Monterey to your Application folder.

sudo /Applications/Install\ macOS\ –volume /Volumes/Install\ macOS\ Monterey –nointeraction

For all the kexts and ACPI files we need to download from Acidanthera github : Lilu.kext, AppleALC.kext, WhateverGreen.kext, AirportBrcmFixup.kext, VirtualSMC.kext, for broadcom bluetooth we need to download BrcmPatchRAM : BlueToolFixup.kext, BrcmFirmwareData.kext, BrcmPatchRAM3.kext. For trackpad and Battery I use Rehabman’s : VoodooPS2Controller.kext, USBInjectAll.kext, ACPIBatteryManager.kext.
