    OK, changed the internal graphics to enabled. In Devices - properties ig-platform id was set as 0300983E. I changed it to 0x3E980003 - value type: data, but upon reboot that had changed to 003E9800 03. Is this a hex code thing? I set boot arguments to shikigva80. This now allows me to view...

    Hi @CaseySJ. No worries at all. I'm amazed you are able to keep up with the sheer number of queries and activity on this thread! We really appreciate your help! In bios, internal graphics is set to Auto iMac 19,1 boot argument: shikivga=32 I couldn't find Platform ID in Clover Configurator -...

    Thanks for the help on this @CaseySJ! Videoproc says H264 hardware decoder is enabled but HEVC is not enabled. It says the status us Unavailable. Time to process a 10 second video on my hackintosh: 13 seconds. On my 2018 MacBook Air with 1.6ghz dual core i5: 3-4 seconds. What do you suggest?

    Hi @Casey, wondering if you might know a fix for this problem. When I share a video from the photos app I see a pie shaped progress indicator in the toolbar of the photos app. The VTEncoderXPCService process runs during this time and CPU activity is ~600%. To share one 60 second video takes...

    Thanks Casey, I had thought the preferred method was the Catalina mini-guide, but I see your point about using the Mojave guide. I do want to learn more about the inner workings of a hackintosh. The upgrade to 10.15.4 seems to have worked. I'm just left with the install Mac OS entry on the...

    I'm not sure what's a hackintosh kext vs non-hackintosh. Here's a screenshot of /Library/Extensions

    It says 10.15.4! Weird! Can I trust that? Everything seems to be running OK. If it's all good, how do I go about deleting the boot volume for "Install" Edit: I never saw a welcome screen. Wasn't asked to sign in to iCloud etc.

    Trying to update to 10.15.4. Have updated clover, lilu, whatevergreen, and AppleALC. After the first reboot it continued for a while then failed with some message about Bless could set boot device property or something like that. I restarted and booted from the install volume and it then failed...

    Thanks Casey. On the Acidanthera GitHub site, I can find the repositories but not the individual kext files. Actually I eventually found lilu.kext but not WhateverGreen and AppleALC kext files. What am I missing? Edit: Nevermind, I found them on the releases page of the repositories. Thanks again!

    Thanks Casey. I unplugged all other drives and then checked at the Clover Boot Menu by pressing "A", and it said I was on 5107. I guess Clover was being loaded from a backup drive. All good on that issue. Now for an embarrassingly stupid question - how do I update Lilu, WhateverGreen, and...

    Anyone having issues updating clover? This is the first time I've updated it. Clover configurator will only let me update up to 5104. When I choose any higher version and click update, nothing happens. It also reports the "Current booted revision" as 5098 (the one I've always been on). I also...

    Great work @byteminer! I really appreciate the time and effort you and @CaseySJ have put into this! I also love that you guys take the time to make it understandable for noobs like me!
