Just enable IGPU in BIOS. You don't have to configure anything. The same is true of Clover.

For audio, I use device properties.
We are using the same path but my sound doesn't work. I don't get it why? My sound is ALCS1200A just has tree layout-id. I always used 1 but when I added device properties and remove the alcid=1 I am losing all sound.

PciRoot(0x0)/Pci(0x1f,0x3) -> layout id= 0x01000000

This is how it looks in my config.plist:

I used Hackintool to get the PCI-e devices.

Guide looks great. Just getting started. I’m using my Mojave Hackintosh to create the USB Catalina install drive. That part worked using your command line in terminal. However when I use clover to mount the usb efi partition, the partition is read only. So I can copy over your efi folders. Any ideas of what to do?

I think you may have done something wrong. The EFI partition should not be read-only.

Please use Disk Utility to initialize the USB flash drive again as HFS+/GUID. Then re-do the command line to create the USB installer.

@pastrychef
I have been using the build (sysdef iMacPro1,1) since now a good month and everything is working super well.
I have also tried using a imac19,1 sysdef with activated IGPU in Headless mode. Here also everything works great with the exception of one thing: Message works well but only for iMessages (blue messages), but not for regular SMS (green messages). I dont have this problem under iMacPro1,1 sysdef.....
I dont understand why this is. Have you ever encountered such a problem or would you have some idea on the origin of this problem? thank you.

After switching to iMac19,1, go to your iPhone and go to Settings > Messages > Text Message Forwarding. Enable your iMac191,1.

Yes, I have a Windows 10 drive.
Yes, I can boot Windows 10 from OpenCore. However, I usually boot Windows 10 from the BIOS boot menu.

Having some sleep issues with mine. It's your build + a 5700 XT card. I have the bottom right how corner set to "Put Display to Sleep" which works fine, but every few minutes, the monitor suddenly turns itself on. I've been hitting the power button on the monitor to turn it completely off, which works but is a little annoying. When I wake it up, the monitor hadn't just been off - it appears the computer was actually sleeping, which I disabled in Energy Saver. iMessages need a minute to catch up, etc.

Any ideas?
