Hello everyone. I am running Catalina on my laptop. I've deleted everything from EFI/CLOVER/Kexts/Other and installed the kexts I need in L/E and everything works atm. But I have another issue, when I take a look at S/L/E there are so many kexts and at least %90 of those are not used by my laptop. There are like 20 Kexts for AMD only while my sistem has no AMD component. Is there a way to see what kexts that are in my S/L/E is being used by the system so I can delete everything else ?

No, it's better to leave them as they are, do not touch the extensions folder.

Only install the required kexts. For the other Vanilla kexts, leave as it is.
