    I also find this pretty simple. Definitely not "complex." I will probably always go for the Pro model because of the faster processor and better camera.

    Not so fast... Whenever the system sleeps, I can't get the monitor to wake up and end up having to reboot. Anyone know a fix for this?

    I wanted to report here for future strugglers that I have now fixed this. I have 1536 MB of VRAM and the monitor is recognized. Two things: 1. Remove device-id property completely. 2. Add boot argument: igfxagdc=0 Also, none of the framebuffer properties seem to make a difference so I...

    Can Someone Explain Hex Swapping Please?

I'm sure it's probably really simple, but it's one of those things that everyone seems to assume you...

    Removing the "framebuffer" entries highlighted below makes ZERO difference. Having those there neither helps nor hinders. Looks like I've hit a brick wall here. Thanks in advance if you can shed any light. Should I be posting about this in the Post Installation>Graphics section?

    The install completed and I have been able to boot to the desktop. It looks like everything is working as expected EXCEPT the HD 630 graphics. The screen is very unresponsive and according to the "About this Mac" splash screen there is only 8 MB of VRAM. When I boot to Catalina (Clover) I have...

    OK I have implemented the above changes, and now the installer is doing its thing. 12 minutes to go. Yay!

    Does anyone know if this part is correct: I was trying to follow this part of the guide for Kaby Lake:

    OK. I was using a wired keyboard but a wireless mouse (not bluetooth).

    OK thank you so much @Feartech! I am using ProperTree to edit my config.plist but I'm not sure I know how to rearrange the order of entries. I will look into that. Thanks again. As an aside, I tried using the MacPro6,1 identifier and after the Apple logo I got two alternating images, which...
