Don't think that will work or resolve your problems. The Dell is Haswell based and the 8300 is Ivy Bridge. The EFI folder and config.plists have many differences that don't transfer from one to the other.

Thanks, that makes sense. I've tried some other solutions but haven't had any luck, and the TV is what I have. It's usable with the reduced screen area, but since it basically only runs one program, OBS, I'm thinking of installing Windows again on that machine to see what happens. o_O

After installing the MSI LP 4GB RX 560, my HP 8300 Elite SFF (i7-3770 / Mojave 10.14.6) behaves fine until after the Apple loading screen, which is when the screen goes black, and the fans spin at full speed. Any ideas? WhateverGreen and Lilu are both where they need to be. My system worked fine with a GT710. My system definition is macmini 6,2. Any help would be much appreciated!

What brand of RX 560 are you using ? Are you connected to the DP, HDMI or DVI output ? Are you using a PC monitor or a television ? Have you tried any other system definitions ? When you boot verbose, what information does that give you ?

Thank you for the quick reply!

MSI low profile RX 560.

Two computer monitors; one is connected to the display port, and one is connected via hdmi.

I have not tried other system definitions.

Verbose information goes by way too quickly to see what it says.

Try booting with just one monitor and see if anything changes.
