hello, I don't know why but my gpu still working after applying the patch. I don't know how to fix it.

You're talking about disabling the Nvidia Graphics? The only thing left that you can do is follow this guide:

It's possible that SSDT-10-OptTabl isn't the correct SSDT to use to disable your Nvidia Graphics, since you're using a different model Razer and not the Razer Blade 15 2018 model.

I'm new to hackintosh world, I updated my clover version using your GitHub fork now, is it the correct version?

Ok, for Razer Blade 2017 you have to do the same thing but instead of SSDT-10-OptTabl you have to edit the SSDT-9-OptTabl ssdt :)

I figured that would be the issue. Most things should translate between the new model and old model, but there will be a handful of things that will not translate over to the older model Razer Blade. This would be one of them

It is obvious: ACPI/origin shows SSDT-9-OptTabl.aml.

Clover's AutoMerge feature (I wrote it), depends on (accurate) file names in order to replace SSDTs with patched versions in the XSDT.

Hi, thanks for the guide and I look forward to attempting it when my ssd and wifi card come in!
So can you set up dual boot for windows after you get MacOs working? And if so, is it recommended to do it through bootcamp or separate?
On my desktop hack I have separate drives for windows and macos so I was not sure it was different.
Last thing, does the screen work at native 144hz in macos?

@vettz500 - thanks for the updated files!

This is now a decent work machine :) One of the last things is to get 2 external monitors working - TB3 works nicely, but mDP and HDMI do not seem to be outputting. I know that HDMI is connected to the GTX and I have mine disabled as I don't use it and prefer the battery life. I assume there is no way to make it work if GTX is off? Any suggestions what to try first to get the mDP working at the same time with TB3?

Much appreciated, thanks! :)

I used disk utility to create a second ExFAT partition and then installed windows with an external drive. Works perfectly.

Yes, and it's amazing - but hard to look at my external monitor with the same eyes again - even just the mouse cursor seems so choppy after this buttery-smooth thing.
