Hi, I've been using Hackintosh for a few days; and while I can use it, it wasn't really great. I used Clover to install Mojave.

My system is:

* Intel i5-6600K (+ HD 530 iGPU)
* AMD R9 390 (Sapphire Nitro)
* 8GB DDR4 RAM
* ASUS Z170 Pro Gaming

AMD card is connected to my first monitor with HDMI, while iGPU is connected to a 2nd monitor via VGA.

In Hackintosh, 2nd monitor doesn't work at all, and while the first one recognizes 390 as (290/390), it shows 7MB VRAM and none of the apps recognize it. And the overall, it was sluggish.

My config file was this:
https://dev.cs.hacettepe.edu.tr/~b21426644/hackintosh/config_old.plist
(https://drive.google.com/file/d/12zH7-0iicyH_h3_SfmKJ1rcegQr0DwgN/view?usp=sharing)

After some searching, I saw this on GitHub

and the builds were similar enough, so I just changed values for 6600k-7700k differences but it stuck on Apple logo while booting.

I reverted to the initial one but now I also lost the ethernet, that's probably because of the .kext from the github I believe

________

The ideal outcome would be 2 monitors with 2 gpus working, but as long as I don't have to physically remove my gpu everytime, I'll be happy with only AMD or only iGPU working on a single monitor.

Thanks in advance.

**Update:** I have these kexts:

* AMD8000Controller.kext
* AppleALC.kext
* IntelMausiEthernet.kext
* Lilu.kext
* USBInjectAll.kext
* VirtualSMC.kext
* WhateverGreen.kext

Hi!

VGA connection is not supported in MacOS.. you can only use it if you convert a digital output (hdmi, display port or DVI) to VGA.

Do a search for F!orian’s AMD comparibility post and there you might find some more tips for the 390 card..
