Hello!

I have used you configuration and was able to install Catalina on my:
Threadripper 1920x,
Aorus Gaming 7 X399,
32GB RAM,
Radeon Vega 64 and
WIFI/BT PCI WTXUP TX-AC94360

I have only one problem - my bluetooth doesn't work although it should natively like in you Fenvi t919 (it is almost the same).
Adter installing there was no Bluetooth in "My Mac" section, but i have deleted your X399 ZenithAlpha USB Port kext and now i can see it, but there is BT adreslike 0.0.0.0 and system says that it is Ericsson, not Broadcom.

What can i do?
And what for is this USB ports kext? Do i have to make it for my X399 Aorus?
