I’ve got one WD SN750. I’ll try one clean install on it. Do I have to update this SSD, too ? I've checked their site. I have to find a PC to use Western Digital Dashboard software.
Did you do anything special to yours when you used it, pastry chef ??


Thank you.
All the best.

I never had to update the firmware on my SN750.

I can't see my graphics card now it says ?? in about this Mac section...

That's cosmetic and doesn't affect performance or functionality.

You can change it to say anything you like. Please see the bottom of post #3 for instructions. Look for "How to populate System Information > PCI".

I stuck on the 5. step of How to populate System Information > PCI".

when I open the pcidevices.plist in plistedit pro I can't see your "delete AAPL,ig-platform-id and device-id." instead I see this ... what should I do ? :)

OK /// now I'm stuck in step 11, there is no "LPC/eSPI Controller" in my config.plist in Clover Configurator


I rebooted but still, no gpu shown in my about my Mac

and if I check my pcidevices.plist with plist edit pro I can see my card in different pciroot section, what do I do ? :)

You can do it in BIOS.
