Asus released a new BIOS today, version 2003;


The PEG option as primary display is available again.
I can confirm: the PEG Option is back. Now you can switch on IGPU and PEG togegether while unsing only one Monitor connected to PEG. I will test now if the new iMac profile with i9 support plus my Vega 56 works. I hope this turns down power consumption a bit as simple desktop work is done by the internal GPU. At the moment, with the Vega only, some web pages spin the fans up. I think this is a driver issue due to the way Apple Hardware uses both graphic units

BTW: BIOS 2003 starts my system flawlessly. But I did not test much.

Built my ROG this time last year and have had next to no problems with it. Just took the plunge and finally updated to Mojave. After an initial hiccup from me sloppily updating Clover (if you too have just bricked your computer by running the standard Clover update then follow this great guide https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/solved-clover-update-r4586-disables-os-boot-black-screen.256050/) 10.14.5 is up and running. Just wanted to say thank you so much Stork, this is my first Hackintosh and you made it a total breeze!!

Hi,

Maybe someone could help me out, I have chosen SMBIOS 19,1, using a i9-9900K. If i’d like to use headless iGPU. Do I only need to enable iGPU in the BIOS and use the latest whatevergreen and lilu ? Is it no longer necessary to manually choose the corresponding ig-platform-id, device-id, or to make other adjustments after following Stork's guide ?

Kind regards for any help in advance

@Chimiel, I don't know since I've not upgraded to an i9 processor. I'm still using Post #1's components. @pastrychef has upgraded his processor to an i9, so he can help you. (TIA @pastrychef )

Yes, I believe the latest versions of Clover and WhateverGreen fixed the IGPU identification.

However, I switched to using iMacPro1,1 with IGPU disabled.

Thank you Grand Wizzard !
Do you happen to know if this is also works with Clover in the latest Multibeast, or can I use Hackintool to check ?

Kind regards
