That's not a problem for me. I will use this hackintosh for running xcode. Do you know if in this use-case the graphics card is needed? What kind of problems could the GPU missing support generate?
Thanks for your answer!
you will have to remove it and use your CPU graphics instead

(try running anything on your unsupported Nvidia and you will see how awful it will be)

I have updated the GitHub with latest EFI that support all (Mojave, Catalina and/or BigSur) all at once or the one you prefer.
It is a beta version as it seems that the LCD backlight does not work under BigSur, sound works, intel wifi too from EFI.
The new achievement is that the Clover 5139 provided is upgraded, by me, to OpenCore 0.6.4 that allow BigSur boot in SecureBootMode, this allow to put the intel wifi driver in the EFI per OS version and is not required anymore to install any kexts.
Enjoy.

Worth to mention that Clover team started to add Monterey support, right now the installer starts but ends in a loop, let wait a bit for better support.

Updated the EFI, Clover 5139 with OpenCore 0.6.5, now the lcd backlight is fixed and BigSur boot with SecureBootModel enabled, please check config-oc.plist

What do you mean with graphical mode? It doesn't reach the desktop? I partitioned my HDD and will test Monterey. I'm curious what's changed and just to try it. If I use the installer, does it install? Or do you mean you can't get to the GUI of the installer?

Not sure if i mentioned something about graphical mode, Monterey with my EFI does not boot yet.

You said in your update (the first post) that it doesn't boot to "graphical mode". Do you know why it doesn't boot? (could be a stupid question but knowing the reason why it doesn't boot doesn't always give a solution)

Ah, right, indeed, i meant to say that the installer does not reach the graphical interface, it is stuck in a loop, probably a configuration issue, as the same EFI, without any modifications, started the Monterey installer on a Dell 5323....

Have you tested a pre-installed version?

I don't have a preinstalled Monterey, however, there something minor in the config.plist that should be fixed, i didn't had time to find what.
