Hey guys, does anyone use external Display with 4k@60hz? it won't work for me.... i'll get a flickering green screen if i switch to 60 Hertz. I tried with Linux and Windows and 4k 60hz work well for both.

Hello, I'm working on a 9360 that I just picked up, can't get the USB drive to get to the installer; trying for OC 0.6.6 and Big Sur 11.2.

Here's the CPU/GPU:

CPU: i7-7660U (Kaby Lake)
GPU: Intel Iris Plus 640
Screen: QHD+ (3200x1800)
Configured with SMBIOS for a MacBook Pro 14,1

Thankfully this isn't my first hackintosh, I have desktop running OC 0.6.5 that works really well, been on OC since 0.5.6.

For this XPS 13 I followed the Dortania guide for Opencore 0.6.6 very closely. My suspicion is that the framebuffer failing and causing a hang. Here are the settings I have and the output.

Last line shows
MacBook-Pro.local com.apple.xpc.launchd[1] (com.apple.displaypolicyd.##) <Warning>:Service exited with abnormal code 1

I've tried a few other platform IDs but nothing seems to work. Any ideas? I really appreciate it!
The guide on Dortania have some typos, so following it perfectly may result in a non-working hackintosh. When I switched to OpenCore I found that there wes something wrong on some documents. Have a look at this post of mine and see if that can help!
