    macOS and Windows 10 on same drive, shared volume between OSes with read/write

    How about the current state of dual booting on the same SSD? The consensus seems to be not to do it even if following proper procedure for doing so. Is that just people parroting what they have heard from others, or actually have experience with it failing? Some people seem to do it, say they...

    macOS and Windows 10 on same drive, shared volume between OSes with read/write

    Looking at a Razer Blade 15 (i7-8750H) which only has one m.2 drive. Planning on putting a 2TB in it and swapping out the wifi card. For the single drive, I was going to split it up into three parts: Windows 10, macOS, and a shared volume for digital audio workstation (DAW) files (sample...

    Verifying if Intel 630 has acceleration enabled, implementing if not

    I recently started a thread to see what options there are to get my ThinkPad X1 Extreme Hacktinosh to run quieter. The fans on it are really quite loud even just downloading stuff which it shouldn't be: Windows is completely silent unless playing a game, so I'd assume macOS/Hackintosh should be...

    Fan Noise and External Monitors

    Just curious if there is a guide on how to downgrade to High Sierra. The laptop I borrowed to make the bootable USB only had Mojave on it, and as far as I could tell, there wasn't an option I could see to downgrade it to HS.

    Solved > [macOS 10.15.0] Thinkpad X1 Extreme Hackintosh

    Well, the Apollo Twin MKII is a TB1 device that uses an adapter to work on the TB3 port. I'd have to assume the TB3 Apollos would also work as well. But again, in my case, the device isn't recognized if macOS is already loaded and you turn on the device. Hot plug isn't supported and supposedly...

    Solved > [macOS 10.15.0] Thinkpad X1 Extreme Hackintosh

    I have an Apollo Twin MKII that works. The device has to be powered on either before macOS starts to load or before the laptop powers on. I haven't sat down to figure out which it is. Has to do with hot TB3 hot plug not working after the OS loads and the board. So if macOS is loaded and you turn...

    Reducing fan noise

    I have to plead ignorance on this one as it isn't a topic I've come across (or at least recall coming across). I used RehabMan's guide for using the correct base config.plist, which I thought was tied to CPU/iGPU. I'll have to research this some more.

    Reducing fan noise

    Hi, regarding iGPU I have not applied anything specifically for iGPU acceleration that I recall. Really all I have done is disable the dGPU.

    Reducing fan noise

    One of the last things I'm trying to get a handle on with this ThinkPad X1 Extreme is the fan noise. Thing just whines downloading something. Never hear the fans in Windows except when gaming and I have it mostly under control in Pop!_OS although sometimes it will rev up for what appears to be...

    Fan Noise and External Monitors

    Regarding fan noise, is this guide still good for Coffee Lake CPUs? https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/guide-native-power-management-for-laptops.175801/

    Solved > How to tell if the dGPU has been correctly disabled

    Cool thanks for confirming. As far as UsbConnector, what kind of behavior should I be expecting if they are set wrong? They seem to work so haven't really changed anything.

    Fan Noise and External Monitors

    Yep, looks like you are correct: went into Windows, mult-monitor worked fine, disabled the GTX 1050 and quit working. What a bummer. I know there aren't drivers for this card for 10.14.4, and even went as far as making sure it was disabled in macOS to try and reduce fan noise. Any other...

    Solved > How to tell if the dGPU has been correctly disabled

    Hi, followed the guide for patching and disabling my dGPU and at first it seemed like the ThinkPad X1 Extreme that I used was running a lot quieter as far as fan noise. However, now I'm just downloading a bunch of sample libraries (Native Instruments, Toontracks, etc), and the fans are running...

    Fan Noise and External Monitors

    Basically have my ThinkPad X1 Extreme Hackintosh where I want it for my needs. Really only have two things outstanding that I'd like to address: Fan noise. Disabling the dedicated GPU for macOS did help quite a bit it seems. Definitely hear it revving up less frequently and the fan noise is...

    Solved > [macOS 10.15.0] Thinkpad X1 Extreme Hackintosh

    Really haven't dug too much into it, but thought I'd try to hook up to two external monitors to see if they worked. One using the HDMI and one using the TB3 on the laptop. I plugged them in before I turned the laptop on because, at least for TB3, Hackintosh on laptops doesn't support hot plug so...
