Well it sounds a little extreme yes I know and yes I know would look a bit odd carrying it around. But I said it's the only last possible option to run macOS I could think of. It could work though. He'd have to disable his IGPU using the boot-args.
still wouldn't work, and disabling the igpu via boot argument is also not possible

@Middleman

I happened to see that post you wrote that was removed (please do not link to that site :) )

That user installed macOS on an IceLake system which is supported whereas TigerLake is currently not

not sure what explanation you wanted though?

:D

That would only look odd to non-Hackintoshers. We would all look at that and say, "I wonder if how I can get two, in SLI mode?"

Check his Description. He is clearly mentioned, "no internal SSD"

Is that relevant to this discussion in any way? I thought you were having trouble getting an unsupported Iris XE iGPU to work?

The screengrab you have posted just shows the person could get hardly anything working ...
