Do you have a spare or backup Ssd or hdd?Hi All
I have built Hackintosh with these spec
MOBO:Gigbyte Z170X Gaming 5 (working perfectly )
Ram: 32GB Crucial Ballistix
GPU:Sapphire RX 480 8GB Nitro installation followed as from this Thread title ([GUIDE] [SUCCESS] MSI Radeon RX 480 Gaming X full acceleration in macOS Sierra)
OSV: Sierra 10.12.3
I experiment of installing one Sapphire RX480 Nitro + GTX 980 working fine together with Adobe apps but causing crash for FCPX 10.3 Due to using both of Open CL and Cuda.
Rx 480 dose better performance for FCPX and Motion 5 compare to GTX980
I tried Dual Sapphire RX 480 Nitro with many different configuration Inject EDID, Fake ID, Inject ATI and inject intel (disabled and enabled), Different Smbios. all tests stuck in loading bar when reached half then stop.
what i believe that the system read both cards are from same port which cause conflict and stop working
I have upload Config list for the last test made below
if anyone has tested dual RX 480 fixed the problem please advice
I was able to run 2 RX 480 cards by selecting inject Intel, and no inject ATI, no EDID, no Load Video Bios. Once you have the 4100kext mod done correctly and have accleration you don't need anything for the RX cards to get support.
Try this, use EFIMounter and mount your EFI partition. Open clover folder and pull your config.plist out and save in a folder. Now remove it to trash (no EFI folder in clover).
Next go to main partition using the GO tab/Computer/(select disk Sierra is on)/EFI Backups folder. Open and remove config.plist to trash.
You now have no config.plists in either folder. Now download a new clover bootloader and instal. This should give you a MacBook 1.1 definition in system bios in clover EFI folder.
Run clover configurator and mount EFI partition, go to devices and add Intel fake ID 0x19120003, and then go to graphics section and add ig. Platform 0x0a206080. Don't select inject ATI, or Inject Intel. Set any other fixes you normally run on your system but stay away from sound fixes for now. Run the magic wand and select system definition and make a new serial number. Now remove that serial number and replace with your saved config.plist numbers (if the numbers were good and are important to you).
Close clover configurator and then open EFI folder/partition and check that the fixes and IDs are there. Then reboot, at clover screen check again that you have fixes in graphics section and then boot. Try first without inject Intel and if it doesn't work try inject Intel. Report findings.
Note: Open GL which is most of the programs in OS Sierra will not use the second gpu, but open CL programs like Luxmark will use both cards and double your scores.
