I just ended up changing my bios basically disabling OS X from seeing it ....., Mojave runs like a 2015 MacBook Pro or Better. No Sleep / Wake, but No biggie, more of proof of concept...

This guide is primarily for laptops.
For desktops on Mojave, just remove the Nvidia device.

If you want the Nvidia for Windows, you can still disable the Nvidia drivers and use IGPU in macOS, but you'll need to determine the ACPI path by looking at data provided in Windows Device Manager (or other methods).

I'm trying to apply this patch so I can keep my RTX 2070 plugged in while using my GTX 1060 with High Sierra. I don't have any "_OFF" methods in any of my SSDT files that aren't in a PowerResource block though.

The computer won't boot with the RTX 2070 plugged in, so I plugged it in and did Clover+F4, but still had to turn the computer off once it got to the Apple loading screen because it still froze. I'm not sure if that process was sufficient to produce the needed *.aml file.

Can anyone help me out?
