Yes the special build. Try 0x0701 and will show i7 for sure.
hmm, still no luck. It's weird that 0x1009 works...For me, I don't have a DGPU so I had to put a platform-id in the my clover's Device Properties in order to boot successfully. Not sure if that's related but I can't think of anything else special I'm doing here.

EFI folder attached for anyone interested. Serial Number and smUUID are removed.

Try FakeCpuID : 0906EC (i9,i7,i5 9th gen) 0906EB (i7 8700B) 0906EA (intel 8th generations).

Is a 19,X SMBios better for i7-8700K + RX 580 + headless 630 than my current 18,3?

If so, would I also need a CPU Type/FakeCPUId?

Same question with i7-8700K + Radeon VII + Headless 630

Still no luck. I've seen some people talking about this issue in another forum too.

Both of you are using i7-8700K which is Coffee Lake (aka 8th gen CPU).

iMac19,x uses 8th and 9th gen CPUs. iMac18,x uses Kaby Lake (aka 7th gen CPU).

Both iMac19,x and iMac18,x use Radeon 500-series GPUs. iMac19,x has option for Vega.

In my opinion, iMac19,x seems like a better fit for both of you.


There's no need to use FakeCPUID with either of these system definitions.

Populating config.plist > CPU > Type is only needed if "About This Mac" is not identifying your CPU correctly.

Thank you - will make changes.

I haven't specified 3E910003 to my knowledge - is that Lilu+WEG doing that automatically?
Not sure, I don't use WEG. The id 3E91 is for i3 IGPU.
