Hi,Important: Always use the correct System Definition (SMBIOS) for the selected PlatformID, Hackingtool will in many cases display the recommended SMBIOS in the lower section of the General tab. Use of a non matching PlatformID and System Definition (SMBIOS) can result in abnormal MacOS behaviour.
Note: There are a few PlatformID's where Hackingtool will not list any recommend System Definitions (SMBIOS) or show "Unknown" next to "Model(s)" in the lower section of the General tab, this means that there are no matching Mac Models using that combination of CPU, IGPU & PlatformID however the IGPU PlatformID is still valid and should work. If possible I recommend selecting an alternative PlatformID that has a framebuffer that matches your IGPU and also has a recommended/matching System Definition (SMBIOS).

If you can't find a PlatformID that matches your IGPU with a recommended System Definition (SMBIOS) it does not mean that things wont work, it just means that you'll have to take your best guess at finding the nearest matching SMBIOS to your Hackintosh hardware, a good tool that can help you make this decision is MacTracker or use Post#2 of @headkaze's guide.
Using Hackingtool to determine the best PlatformID for my iGPU (no dGPU), I have the choice between 2 PlatformIDs: The first one has no recommended System Definition (SMBIOS) but is close to my hardware according to Post#2 of @headkaze's guide (Desktop 3 connectors, while I'm on desktop with 4 connectors : DP, HDMI, DVI, VGA). Now, the other one recommends a different System Definition (iMac15,1 instead of iMac14,2) but is a Desktop 0 connector PlatformID according to Post#2 of @headkaze's guide.
Which option would you recommend?
