First of all I would like to thank the entire community for all the resources and help. Thank you all !!

I am using a laptop with intel core i5 9300h, intel hm 370 Motherboard and gtx 1650 dgpu. I am very new to all this and have a basic idea of clover and open core. I used the guide at open core and tried to set up several times but unfortunately couldn't get past even the boot screen. Then I found clover and installed Catalina.

But there were some issues and when I started searching to fix them , I found this github repo https://github.com/SaeedHaidar/Nitro-5-an517-51-Hackintosh. The Open core configuration here works well for my laptop except that i can't dual boot and use itlwm and Bluetooth . But using the clover config everything works except track pad because the author of the repo included fixes for trackpad in opencore only and they work in my laptop when i use OC. But i want to use clover since this has only 1 issue for me to fix and has excellent dual boot support

So now all i needed to do was simply transfer the track pad related fixes made in open core to clover . I used all the kexts used in open core in the clover kext/others folder and also included all the acpi files of open core into clover . But still the trackpad doesn't work . The trackpad in question is ELAN 0515. Can anyone please help me figure out why the trackpad is working in open core and not in clover . Are there any changes to be made in the clover config file ? Please help

No PR files attached. OpenCore guide will be added soon.
