    When following these instructions - https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/...ierra-on-any-supported-intel-based-pc.200564/

    I found the BIOS settings in these locations -

    Bios Version F20

    *CSM
    - Located under BIOS, the option only appears when Windows 8/10 Features is set to Windows 8/10

    *CFG-Lock - Can’t find it.

    *Secure Boot Mode - Located under BIOS.

    *OS Type - Under BIOS, but it’s not called OS Type, it’s called Windows 8/10 Features.

    *IO SerialPort - Under Peripherals, it’s called Super IO Configuration/Serial Port.

    *XHCI Handoff - Under Peripherals/USB Configuration.

    Hope this helps someone!

    You can boot with dart=0 which is the same as disabling VT-d.

    It is a Clover boot argument.
    You can make it permanent by editing your config.plist.

    macvidcards.com is the best source for matching build numbers to web drivers.

    Drivers: "10.12.2(16C67) 367.15.10.25f01(16C68)367.15.10.25f02"

    f02 installed and restarted my machine.
    f01 keeps giving me an error "Mac OS X version is not compatible: Mac OS X version 10.12.2 (16C678) is not supported with this package."

    anyone had this one before? are they both supposed to install or only one of them? Still unable to detect multiple displays.

    Dart=0 was already set. The NVIDIA driver manager refuses to stick on "NVIDIA Web Driver". Every time I toggle, it says reboot. I do and it toggles back to default. Dunno if they're related?
