You have DSDT patch error, I guess it's not about SSDT-EC.aml but DSDT.aml and other SSDT's. How did you patch the DSDT? Seems like you are patching the graphics that you don't have or maybe the reference name might be different. If you have not patched your DSDT yourself then please remove them all. you can also disable DSDT change from clover boot screen while booting.

Your profile is incomplete, complete your profile first

Make sure you backup your EFI first before using this.
Here's my EFI, use for reference purposes only.

Introduction
MacOs Catalina
was just released in 7th October 2019. This is the major release by an Apple because the UI of Catalina is in 3 variant Dark, Auto and Light. You can install this OS in any laptop running Intel processor and assuming you've at least 8 GB of RAM. 4 GB RAM can also install it but maybe a little slow and laggy while working with heavy programs. Below are the necessary requirements for this guide :


  • Intel based processor laptop/desktop
    USB stick 16 GB or higher
    A working mac or Hackintosh
    Internet Connection
Use 16 GB flasdrive(Pen Drive) or higher than 8 GB

Preparation:

Download macOS Catalina

Description:
To get a working Mojave installer onto a USB flash drive it must first be formatted into a scheme that allows for an EFI Partition. Afterward the Catalina Installer is ready to be placed on the USB drive using is Terminal.

Step 1: Formatting the USB Drive.
You can format the USB flash drive using two way:
  1. Disk Utility
  2. Terminal
1.Disk Utility:
**Insert Flash Drive
**Open Disk Utility
**Select the Flash Drive on the left column
**Click Erase

Set the following settings:
  • Name: Your Choice
  • Format: Mac OS Extended (Journaled)
  • Scheme: GUID Partition Map
**Click Erase
**Click Done upon finish.

2.Terminal
**Insert Flash Drive
**Open Terminal
And Type Following Command
Bash:
diskutil list
Then...
Bash:
# repartition /dev/disk3 GPT, one partition
# EFI will be created automatically
# second partition, "install_osx", HFS+J, remainder
diskutil partitionDisk /dev/disk3 1 GPT HFS+J "install_catalina" R
Note:- In my case, my sub flash drive is /dev/disk3, you can check for the available drive using the command diskutil list.

Step 2: Transferring the Mojave Installer to USB flash drive via terminal.
If you using the Disk Utility method to Formatting the USB Drive, then using this command.
In Terminal...
First edit and replace Your USB Drive Name.
Bash:
sudo /Applications/Install\ macOS\ Catalina.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia --volume /Volumes/install_catalina --applicationpath /Applications/Install\ macOS\ Catalina.app --nointeraction
**If you using the Terminal method to Formatting the USB Drive, then using this command.
In Terminal....
Bash:
# copy installer image
sudo "/Applications/Install macOS Catalina.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia" --volume  /Volumes/install_catalina --nointeraction
Step 3: Download Clover EFI Bootloader<<<<< Use the latest version

Step 4: Install Clover EFI Bootloader to USB flash drive.

  • Change Install Location and select your USB flash drive
  • select "Customize"
  • Check "Install for UEFI booting only", "Install Clover in the ESP" will automatically select.
  • Check Themes

  1. Check Recommended Driver
  2. AptioMemoryFix-64.efi
  3. Use HFSPlus.efi
After install Clover go to usb/efi/efi/clover/drivers/uefi.
Put this file
AptioMemoryFix.efi

**Go to usb/efi/efi/clover/drivers/uefi then past it
HFSPlus.efi:

Go to usb/efi/efi/clover/acpi/patched.[Recommended]
Put this file
SSDT-EC.aml

Step 5:
Download Laptop config Clover.
No need for new config for Catalina you can use Mojave config.

**Go to /EFI/EFI/Clover/Kexts/Other/ then paste this following kext[Recommended]
FakeSMC.kext:
VoodooPS2Controller.kext:
USBInjectAll.kext:
Lilu.kext:
WhateverGreen.kext:

**Go to /EFI/EFI/Clover/Acpi/Pached and paste it here[Recommended]
SSDT-DiscreteSpoof.aml
Note: If your laptop build in dedicated GPU then need this.


Now you ready to boot and install macOS Catalina.

Known Issue During Install
(Kernel Panic)

View attachment 1402

If you get this then please use SSDT-EC.aml. in USB/EFI/EFI/Clover/ACPI/patched
Also, use SSDT-EC after install. it needs to run Catalina. Without SSDT-EC Catalina won't run.

Problems??

You save my day men! Thanks a lot. struggling for more than three full days to install catalina on Optiplex990.
Ask on some Forum-Boards, got much help, but nothing really nail it down to the real issue. It seems to was the AptioFix & SSDT_EC.
I wish I had find your post 2 Days and 7 Hours fewer.
Thanks a lot for sharing this!
