    Does the install SMBIOS matter?

    I'm testing different system definitions with a High Sierra install. Would I have to reinstall the OS again with the SMBIOS that I want to test, or is it enough with just changing it on Clover and booting the same install?

    14.2 vs 17,1 — NVidia

    I am deciding whether to go with 14.2 or 17,1. I had settled on 17,1, on the grounds that it reflected my hardware better, when I read, in jaymonkey’s post on iMessage, that your hardware choice should be a function of your video card. Is this a compromise, or does video card (NVidia — 14,2)...
