you know, i’m glad i was just messing around with it. no idea why this worked, but i reset ram again, changing inputs to my graphics card (in bios it was on auto so i stil got graphics anyways, i didn’t think it would affect it) and i am currently in. Thank you for the help, and if you do see this, could you try and explain like. why? just so i can learn or understand what’s going on with simply switching the outputs.
How many years do you think a hack has left @pastrychefPersonally, I'd just wait a little and spend on an Apple Silicon Mac instead. I've already decided to put a halt to investing any more money in to my hacks.
Sorry I meant "how long before Apple stops supporting".What do you mean?
Are you asking how long this hack can last? I see no reason why it can't last for decades. I think that keeping the system running cool can help prolong its lifespan.

I am tossing up building a modern hack as I simply despise Apple hardware costs .
The fact I still use an Iphone 6S may be proof of that.
I see your point ... but don't like the resultMy guess is that Apple will continue to release new major releases of macOS for Intel based Macs two years after the last Intel based Mac has been replaced by an Apple Silicon version. After that, I expect Apple to only continue releasing security updates for several more years.
Personally, I've decided to stop investing any more money in Intel based macOS systems. In fact, I even sold my Radeon VII several weeks ago. I see Intel based macOS as a dead platform and any money spent on it is wasted money.
If you factor in the cost of video cards right now, buying an Apple Silicon Mac which has a decent GPU built-in, the current pricing really looks like a bargain.

I prefer the OSX / IOS platform and , yet, my most vital software is W10 based. As such, IM stuck in nowhere land as the concept of virtualisation for this one piece of rubbish software is beyond me.
Anyway - thanks for your input.
