This forum is for desktop graphics in a Hackintosh. I suggest you make a post over on MacRumors.

Hi all hack community. I'm still reading this topic from the beginning, but maybe someone will help me faster than I'll find correct solution. So, my vintage config is: GA-P35-DS3P rev 2.1 / Q9550 + 8 GB RAM / genuine Apple GT 120 / Fenvi 919 / Dell 1980*1080 monitor (DVI connection). And my issue is next: after os installed (according all rules from High Sierra guide) I got strange monitor resolution and picture ratio (please see attachments), plus Nvidia chup 5md in system info. Tried to fix it with option #6 from first page of this topic. Installed Nvidia Web Driver, but, nothing works fine. Without "nv_disable=1" hack reboots each time after Apple logo, with this option resolution and GPU memory as I mentioned before.

PS. Config file of my boot ssd disc, and picture or ratio/resolution example.

Thanks.

Booting with nv_disable=1 is doing just that, disabling the Nvidia card and putting it in VESA mode. Hence the low resolution and low memory. Have you tried setting Inject->Nvidia->True? You also should not need the WebDrivers for that card.

Thanks for reply, yes I tried this config, Inject->Nvidia->True without v_disable=1. Reboot after apple logo.

PS. Attached video with this scheme.

Hi everyone. I recently upgraded to Catalina 10.15.5. I'm now trying to reapply Ben Dobell's patch https://github.com/Benjamin-Dobell/nvidia-update but am encountering the following error when the installation kicks off:

"installer: The upgrade failed. (The Installer encountered an error that caused the installation to fail. Contact the software manufacturer for assistance. The package is attempting to install content to the system volume.)"

I realize hardware acceleration is out but really did enjoy the better screen resolution that came with the patch previously. Any ideas?

Apologies this was asked and answered: sudo mount / -uw
