Thank you both!I assume this question refers to a Hack and not a real Mac system.
That being the case this is what the Configuration manual says regarding the ForceDisplayRotation entry.

Assuming your system doesn't natively support Display rotation from boot:
Both are set as False/Disabled by default, as shown in the extract from the Sample.plist from OC 0.8.2.
- You might want to try enabling the DirectGopRendering entry in the UEFI > Output section.
- As well as the AppleEg2Info entry in the UEFI > ProtocolOverrides section.

Thanks for your support!The version of macOS you are running shouldn't make any difference. The entries are not restricted to any specific version, all that matters is that your system can implement the rotation, you could be running Snow Leopard for all the difference the OS makes to these bootloader entries.
From what you wrote I believe the Bootloader is not rotating the display, but once the graphics switch over the to OS the display is rotated as you want. Is that correct?
Ok another assumption, is that you have physically rotated your display 90° (portrait mode) and that is why you want to use this feature in OC. Is that correct?
- Does the Display (which make and model) offer you the option to rotate the displayed graphics, as well as physically rotating the display?
- Is there a setting in your display's "OSD Settings” (on-screen display settings) for rotating the display?
- Have you tried using that instead of the OC entries?
The strange thing is that -v makes rotating happen right from the start of the White Apple screen instead of only at half the progress bar without it...OK I think you are correct, the old Samsung only VGA display probably can't provide the rotation, so it doesn't occur till the OS takes control of the graphics.
Something you will need to live with I think, until you get a newer display that can provide the screen rotation as a native option.
Crash fixed with AppleALC-1.7.4Bad luck for my Z68, but it's not OC, it's one of the updated kexts:
Crashes and reboot quite immediately after the white apple starts. Verbose is not very talkative...
Works ok with the old ones.
I ain't got much time this week to spot which one is the culprit, but I'll let you know.
