A little history...

I originally installed Mojave, later upgraded to Catalina. I have an Intel HD Graphics 4600 with DVI and VGA ports, and had been told long ago that the VGA port would just not work, so I have always used only the DVI port. I have monitors connected to both ports, and the VGA port would look frizzed and unreadable after a certain point in the boot process, so I would just turn it off.

I recently upgraded to Catalina 10.15.5 and my machine would not boot. I updated to the latest version of Clover, got the latest kexts, and with vanilla settings in my config.plist it boots just fine.

BUT NOW MAGICALLY, my VGA monitor is no longer frizzed and it displays a mirror of the first monitor! I'm hoping that since it can display a mirror now, maybe it could be set up as dual monitors... but how? Or am I just getting excited about nothing?
