hy ...i've tried to follow the hints of PFG in post #223 regarding NVMe disks....but i think i committed some other errors because the INSTALLER SCREEN of macos don't shows... this is the screen locked ...some ideas ?



Ok : after 1 hour of working step by step to determinate where i can have made the error... finally i see the installation splash screen...but NO disk NVMe for install macos ...so i decide to stop for a moment..retrieve an old 128 GB ssd Kingston and I will try to install on it after...if all go right, I'll try to install the NVMe disks and cloning with CC.

finger cross :)

Did you get Sierra working on your HDD first?
Without a working install where you can out the NVMe Kexts in the clover folders you will not be able to "see" the NVMe SSDs.

It sounded from somewhere else on this site that AMD graphics cards work well with the Hackintosh, but you just can't put the computer to sleep (it won't wake back up again). If that's true... perhaps it's better to forget about Nvidia cards? I am Ok shutting my computer down after using it and turning it back on again.

Awesome! Thanks GCZZI. Really happy to hear you got it working. I've not had a good week trying to get the Windforce working.

I'd like to copy your setup if you don't mind?

What motherboard are you using?
Which monitor? What resolution?
What port of the GPU are you using? HDMI/DVI/DP?
Which Nvidia driver?

It looks like you have a motherboard bios update? Where did you get the update?

Are you connecting the display port to your motherboard or the GPU? (I ask because you wrote "DP" next to your motherboard and not your GPU.
