HP Envy Hackintosh Information

In a note in the hard disk, I found some interesting information: I want to share with you some of the aspects that didn't worked well, for a reason or another and some useful information.

Hackintosh 2020 HP Envy m6 - Information

In the past years, I had an occasion to see (and have for a few days) on an HP Envy m6 running MacOS.

What’s not working in Hackintosh HP Envy m6?

- ethernet card with just RTL file: you will need a special kext, since it is slightly different than the official one
- keyboard and touchpad: you will need some kext in this folder
- audio: see the post-install guide.

- fingerprint sensor: not interested in fixing this
- wifi card: unless someone writes a driver it is unfixable
- DRM: it could be fixed according to post-install guide
- sleep: it could be fixed according to post-install guide
- battery: it could be fixed according to post-install guide

Fix Audio

The number that worked to me is alcid=13 for IDT IDT92HD91BXX it may be different for you.
