Hi,

Yesterday I succesfully installed macOS Catalina on my laptop. Now there is a couple of problems:


  1. Wifi is not working, there is not even a function for wifi, internet cable also doesn’t work.
  2. Sound is not working
  3. Mousepad (the one build in the laptop) is not working
  4. I accidently removed Windows boot manager( i still have my data)
Another question, how can i install that i’ t will start the macOS installation without going to boot everytime again?

Hope someone who can help me with this. In case needed my laptop specs:

You should open each specific thread for each particular issue.
Wifi is not working, there is not even a function for wifi, internet cable also doesn’t work.
Have you replaced the WiFi Card with a compatible one? What's your Ethernet chip? Attach a screenshot of DPCI Manager>PCI List
Sound is not working
What's the Codec?
Mousepad (the one build in the laptop) is not working
What's your Trackpad vendor and model?
I accidently removed Windows boot manager( i still have my data)
Do you need Windows boot manager or?
Another question, how can i install that i’ t will start the macOS installation without going to boot everytime again?
Can you explain it more clearly?

DPCI Manager is an Application. Download it and run it. Attach a screenshot. If you haven't replaced the WiFi Card, it's probably from Intel which is unsupported and will NOT work. Consider a WiFi replacement.

You've Qualcomm Atheros which is not supported. Replace it with a compatible card.

How can i replace that? And is there a possible way to get internet cable working?
