Hello everyone,
I'm currently trying to setup a Optiplex 780 with the follow specs on macOS 10.12.6:

Intel Core 2 Duo E7500 2.93GHz
8GB DDR3
512MB DELL ATI Radeon HD 5450
80GB HDD
1920x1080 Dell E2214H (Currently cant change resolution. Stuck 1280x1024 and animations are really laggy.)

macOS detects the card in About this Mac, but only indicates it has 5MB of vRAM.

I've applied FakeID and tried messing with the DSDT (Don't know what I'm doing at all with that one), with no avail. I'll include my config.plist as well.

Any help is appreciated. Really need to get this system running because its going to function as my system for when I have actual Macs from customers that need to be worked on. This system would also save me $150 from buying a 2010 Mac Mini.

Also, if anyone has the knowledge as to what drivers I need in Multibeast, that would be great.

Thanks!

Config is a mess. Press F4 at Clover boot, Attach Clover folder from EFI along with ioreg ZIP Attach. [Guide] How to Make a Copy of IOReg | tonymacx86.com

Hey, I noticed the MSI GeForce GTX 1060 Gaming X graphics card you have in your profile listing. Could you confirm if it is Hackintosh compatible in this thread? Evidence/pictures are preferred.

I would message you directly, but it's not letting me.

Hey, yes it did work pretty much natively on 10.12.5. After Install, all i did was install my other drivers with Multibeast, then went and grabbed the Nvidia web drivers for the card online. Unfortunately, I have since stopped using this system as a Hackintosh and once again am using it as my primary gaming system. Setup was not difficult and if you have an issues, this forum is definitely the right place to go to ask for help.

Thank you for responding to this btw. I actually ended up just buying a 2010 Mac Mini for around a $100 as it does what I need it to do.

Could you move this section of the post or duplicate it to this thread? Thank you for the response.
