Hi, All.

I have been using my new hackintosh (Sierra 10.12.5) for a few weeks, fairly problem-free, aside from images sometimes not displaying correctly under certain applications.
For example, in iTunes, the following occurs to the apple logo:

In Safari:

But in any other application, aside from preview:

So something involving iTunes and Safari seem to break certain images.

In preview, however, every so often, the following occurs:


If its needed, the system is:
Gigabyte Z97N-Wifi (Wifi card removed because it's incompatible)
Intel i5 4690k @ 3.5GHz
8GB Corsair RAM
Samsung EVO 850 SSD (Boot Disk)
And the troublesome Nvidia 750Ti, with the latest Nvidia Web Drivers.

Thanks in advance!

Hi there :)

Which System Definition are you using?

There's a lot to read here about the Safari icon problem, and I had the preview problem - caused by the Sys Def.

I'm using the default that multibeast set up for me. I'm pretty sure it was iMac 14,2. (Not in front of the machine now. Can't be sure.)

@Doofitator, please update your profile (personal details) with your Motherboard or Make/Model, CPU and Graphics Card.

Disable Intel Integrated Graphics in the BIOS
Do not inject Intel and no ig-platform-id in your config.plist

Hehe. Sorry. Updated my profile :)

I loaded up Clover Configurator and disabled inject Intel. Couldn't find ig-platform-id though. :/
I then rebooted, opened the BIOS and made sure integrated graphics was disabled, which it was.

Wondering if I should have enabled 'inject Nvidia'? Saw that option, and seeing as I have a nvidia graphics card, maybe that would help? (See 'before' image for reference if needed)

No
  • BIOS - Disable Integrated Graphics - PEG as Primary
  • Use a digital connection - DVI or HDMI - VGA is not supported.
  • Config.plist - Do not inject Intel or Nvidia graphics and no ig-platform-id
  • Edit config.plist - NvidiaWeb = true as per Link

Okay. All of that was already in place, aside from NividiaWeb = true. Beforehand, I had the following in my config.plist:
Code:
<key>SystemParameters</key>
    <dict>
        <key>InjectKexts</key>
        <string>Yes</string>
        <key>InjectSystemID</key>
        <true/>
    </dict>
Now I have
Code:
<key>SystemParameters</key>
    <dict>
        <key>InjectKexts</key>
        <string>YES</string>
        <key>InjectSystemID</key>
        <true/>
        <key>NvidiaWeb</key>
        <true/>
    </dict>
I then rebooted, and opened iTunes. To my surprise, the apple logo did not become pixelated.
However, Safari still has the same issues, and so do images.

I am using one HDMI 1920*1080 screen, so a digital connection is in use.
I found ig-platform-id and disabled it. PEG was already primary in the BIOS.

Any other ideas? Have I done anything wrong?
