before starting to mess up my mHack, I'd like to know if I need to change the sysdef, and so the serial number and deactivate software linked to my computer, or if I can just change the platform ID to HD 5200 and try t like that
You can safely switch your PlatfromID without making any changes to the SMBIOS, S/N ... etc.
On my Z97 based system (White Knight build in my signature) I also use the iMac15,1 SMBIOS.
Recommended IGPU PlatformID's to use on Z97 Motherboards :-
- HD4600 IGPU as Headless = 0x0412000B (with dGPU set as Primary)
- HD4600 IGPU as Primary = 0x0D220003 (with dGPU disabled)
I ran silentknight to check the "security" of my mHack, and I know that it's not a real mac, but we try to make it looks like one, and so, even if I'm up to date in the OS updates, it found some stuff not updated, don't know if it can cause some of my problems ? (obviously not the EFI firmware but for the rest I don't know). So, even if I think it's probably not relevant, I include a screenshot of silentknight
You don't need to worry about any of the items flagged in red in Silent Knight ..
EFI Update -> Not Relevant on Hackintosh
SIP Disabled -> On most hacks we partially disable SIP with CsrActiveConfig = 67 so that the system can load the kexts.
GateKeeper Disabled -> You have enabled System Prefs -> Security -> General "Allow from Anywhere" for Apps
MRT -> Apples Malware Removal Tool is not up to date
None of the above will effect the overall stability or functionality of your system.
