Had a fully functional hack, decided to update BIOS, was unable to even boot as it would get hanged on the Apple logo, checked t he BIOS settings and during the update they were back to its default settings, changed them accordingly and was able to boot with no issues however my gpu is now not detected and when I select Nvidia web drivers on the menu bar and reboot, they change automatically to OSX drivers.

I've already tried installing RC Scripts and EmuVariableuefi64.

I also edited the config.plist system parameter to YES, as instructed here in tonymac.

Any idea? I'm kinda lost here :(.

Check pics to see what I installed in clover.

Thanks.

Installation procedure :

BIOS - Disable Integrated graphics - Set PEG as Primary
Use a digital connection - DVI or HDMI - VGA is not supported.
Boot with nv_disable=1
Update Clover
Install web drivers
Config.plist - Do not inject Intel or Nvidia graphics and no ig-platform-id
Enable SIP fully - CsrActive 0x67
Edit config.plist - NvidiaWeb = true as per Link
May need to emulate NVRAM - Problem 6
Remove nv_disable=1 from config.plist

Did everything besides enable SIP as I dont really know how to do that, you can check the status of "crsutil status" on the attached picture.

*Running latest clover version
*Web Drivers installed of course
*Everything on inject is set to NO
*nvidiaWeb set to true
*NVRAM emulated - You can See the checkboxes I ticked on the first post of this thread-

I will also leave my config.plist attached for you to see, please check it when you can!

Thanks.

Thanks for the minor edits, however I was able to fix it.

I stumbled upon this ****** post (check pic), and I tested my sytem for proper NVRAM, I expected to had NVRAM since I had installed 2x times EmuVariableUefi via the Clover installer as I showed on the previous pic. However, when I rebooted the system and checked for that "Hello World" output, I had nothing. So I decided to keep following that guys advice and install the driver via CloverConfigurator, rebooted and voila, smooth graphics. For some reason installing it via the clover installer didn't work.

Should I replace my config.plist with the one you provided? What changes did you do if im allowed to ask.

Thank you once again!

Why would you change anything if it is working ?


What changes did you do if im allowed to ask.
You could just look and see, you will learn much more that way.
