hi,
i have a y520 equipped with dual gpu running with the latest mojave build on my laptop but i have a question,
since the nvidia gpu is disabled so is the hdmi port, there is a chance to connect an adapter via usb-c to get a functioning vga port working?
I don’t think the USB-C port on the Y520 is capable, but I believe I read somewhere that you can get a USB 3.0 dongle and get video output with that.

@the-braveknight hey, quick question. I have High Sierra working perfectly on my y520 thanks to you. How can I upgrade directly to Mojave for now? I've been looking for a guide that has been tested or something trying not to break my current build. Or do I have to do a fresh install?

HI, this is my first time hackintoshing, I havent been able to get to the installer, my BIOS settings are also corrrect. I'm not sure what's causing this, maybe someone would take the time and see what's wrong with my clover folder?

I have a Lenovo Legion Y520 80WK00TKRK (6 gb version). I added 8 gb ram instead of 2 gb and now it's ok )
I installed 10.14.5 following this guide. Few days ago i updated my system to Catalina and it works perfectly.
Thank you @the-braveknight for your work!
