Thanks a lot! In fact I was not worrying about the GT210 but rather the headless IGPU part of the issue: when Hackintool says "VDA Decoder : Fully Supported", can I be sure it really works? — I haven't found a proper way to test it... Some say Intel Power Gadget.app, but mine (3.7.0) shows a green line for "GFX AVG" that never moves from 0.35 GHz (that is when performing the GFX0 to IGPU rename without Whatevergreen).@Nodarkthings,
For a GT 210 I doubt WEG will be doing much, probably just ACPI renames as you have found out. WEG tends to be needed more with AMD GPU's where it will ensure all the ports are active and the correct AMD framebuffer is injected (usually a generic one) in addition to ACPI renames and patches.
So in your situation I think not using WEG wont be detrimental.
Having said that I haven't used Nvidia GPU's in hacks for a few years now, I jumped to team RED once Nvidia stoped releasing updated web drivers for Mojave so you might want to check with someone like @Gigamaxx who knows a bit more about the current state of supported Nvidia GPU's in MacOS.
