    [Guide] Install High Sierra on the HP 8300 Elite / 6300 Pro Desktop PC

    This is how the Graphics part of my config.plist looks: <key>Graphics</key> <dict> <key>Inject</key> <dict> <key>ATI</key> <false/> <key>Intel</key> <true/> <key>NVidia</key> <false/>...

    That's the fix that I used. Didn't add the VRAM line though.

    [Guide] Install High Sierra on the HP 8300 Elite / 6300 Pro Desktop PC

    Some PCs are very good quality and businesses will come back to them for reliability, despite this being an old model it is brand new - so new caps, new parts inside - hdd, etc. And this paired with the 'tried and tested' would be a choice for many.

    [Guide] Install High Sierra on the HP 8300 Elite / 6300 Pro Desktop PC

    Thank you to both karoli9 and trs96, I've had some success with the whole thing, I added the number of vga ports in config.plist and it seems to be working alright-ish. So far I restarted the machine a few times and seems to boot with both screens. Not bug-free though, sometimes when it goes to...

    Best budget graphic card for High Sierra with HP 6300 pro

    Just a small remark re post no. 9 where you're asking wether things will run fine, from experience - you should really get familiar with how Customacs work and should not expect stuff to work first time every time (although it's nice when it does). You should also be careful with OS and driver...

    [Guide] Install High Sierra on the HP 8300 Elite / 6300 Pro Desktop PC

    I was using Safari initially as I was liking the tabs being visible both on my Iphone and vice versa. I am now trying out Chrome, and I might be wrong but it feels like the lag is less frequent. I will update to HS but no rush. And yes brand new SSD and all that - I am currently running on...

    Hey, hi, basically I have 2x Dell 2407WFP and one is connected via DVI, the other via HDMI on the GPU side and with HDMI to DVI converter at the monitor side. I am running those on a Gigabyte 1050Ti low profile (on a 6300SFF), which has the following: 1x DVI, 1xDP, 2xHDMI. A couple of times the...

    [Guide] Install High Sierra on the HP 8300 Elite / 6300 Pro Desktop PC

    I have the exact same problem for the longest of time now. I initially installed 12.5 and the very fresh install didn't have this behaviour. Then I updated some kexts, installed cpu power management stuff and the dreaded lag started. I posted in the 6300 Sierra thread by tsr96 about this but no...

    [Guide] HP 6300 Pro / HP 8300 Elite - A 100 percent Working and Easily Affordable CustoMac

    Thanks trs96 OK. So I had a very detailed look at the first post and it's slightly different now from the one I followed back in June. I made the change in Clover for the USBs under '8' - Require DSDT Patch and the camera mic seems to be back online, I didn't do this initially. That made me...

    [Guide] HP 6300 Pro / HP 8300 Elite - A 100 percent Working and Easily Affordable CustoMac

    Hi all, I had a quick (not thorough) look at the forums and couldn't find a problem/thread similar to what I'm having. Basically I've been happily running MacOS 10.12.5 for a while now (since June I think) and everything has been mostly working good. However recently my mic stopped working, I...
