    Mac on HP Omen 17 cb-cb0011nv

    There doesn't seem to be any solution on this , also it's not only a matter of "BIOS" but also the hardware has to support switchable graphics... any other idea apart from modded bios ?

    Mac on HP Omen 17 cb-cb0011nv

    Changing something in the BIOS to restore functionality of Intel graphics could be a solution... if there is any modded bios for this purpose... High Sierra and Nvidia Web Drivers is not an option, unfortunately, because it's a GTX 1660 TI which is not supported by NVIDIA Web drivers....

    << Solved >> High Sierra 10.13.6 (17G8037) MSI GTX 1050 NO SIGNAL

    So it turns out the problem was the DVI port. At an older build of High Sierra I used to have full acceleration even from DVI. Now that I reinstalled the latest build I can get full acceleration only through HDMI.

    [Solved] Stuck at Shutdown-Reboot HighSierra

    Ok so here's what was wrong. Apparently I was using an old and incompatible USB Wifi card (asus usb n13). Though it works fine, if it is connected during shutdown the whole process will fail. I added a custom script that gets executed in shutdown that unloads apple's usbhub kext so everything...

    Backup Mac OS X EL Capitan dual boot w Windows [GPT]

    Thank you for your reply, I know about the command dd but this will copy the disk as you said while I prefer a backup image. If I have to use the dd command that would mean I will need to buy a new harddisk to backup there, and use that disk only for this purpose. If I decided to do this would...
