Is this for Catalina only? Just tried this on my machine with latest Mojave, and it resulted in a very slow boot, and on reaching desktop the iGPU seemed completely disabled. HWMonitorSMC2 only showed my RX580 instead of both, and checking encoding settings in VideoProc just said 'unavailable'. With boot flag removed startup is usual time, I now have iGPU back, and encoding in VideoProc.
It's not limited to Catalina, but as stated in the Caveats section, there might be boot issues. Fortunately, it's easy to undo.

You may also try using the same serial number, board serial number, and System UUID (all three of these) as before -- even if you change SMBIOS name to iMac19,1.
Yes! That should be sufficient, Thanks Casey :thumbup:

Mojave 10.14.6 works great! Big boost

** Micro-Guide: Significantly Speed Up Intel UHD630 iGPU **
Please do not quote this guide in its entirety. Post a link instead.​

Sorry, another noob question.

What is the best way to install Lilu and Whatever green Kexts in Catalina? I've read that previous methods of simply dragging new kexts doesn't work?

Wonder what is causing it to completely disable my iGPU then... are you injecting anything else in clover or just letting Whatevergreen do it’s thing? I also have 192m allocated in BIOS which I see is more than in the guide on page 1 here.

Synthetic benchmarks are scoring particularly high, but most real-world applications are not. The improvements are task specific and it seems that Radeon VII and 5700-series GPUs exhibit the largest gains. Nevertheless, we want to include all user benchmarks whether they be good, bad, neutral, horrible, or exceptional. This will help to identify the operational envelope -- or set of tasks that do and do not benefit.

To that end, if you captured your before/after timings it would be quite helpful to post the data in a spreadsheet table.

iMacPro1,1 9900KS VEGA64 iGPU=OFF w/o RadeonBoost: GB5OPENCL 59064, GB5METAL 54993, DR16 export 17:42
iMacPro1,1 9900KS VEGA64 iGPU=OFF with RadeonBoost: GB5OPENCL 67637, GB5METAL 61510, DR16 export 22:33
iMac19,1 9900KS VEGA64 iGPU=ON with RadeonBoost: DR16 export = slower (H264 30fps instead of 55fps)

I don't see GFX info in Intel Power Gadget? Am I supposed to install extra stuff for this?
It should appear by default. Can you post a screenshot?

P.S. Please un-quote the micro-guide.

Just replace files in CLOVER/kexts/Other and reboot.

It depends on your licensing details/constraints..For example I had a fully working Windows 10 pro which was activated at my ma's house. My Nephew used it mostly. He moved it to his Ma's place and is getting an activation alert and bogs of certain features etc..This is easier as they'll ask for a Product key and see that it was indeed activated. It must be the change of IP which triggers a new system alert.
With my situation, I'm a bit stuck bc they'll most likely ask for my Imac Serial #. . I cannot tell them it's a hackintosh( No support obviously)

I can say i had a malfunction and cant run my apps. If I'm lucky with some info in EFI> Symbios etc.. they might allow a reinstall on their end OR give me new activation codes.

I'll keep this predicament updated for sure. I think with my charm and the right agent, we can make it work lol

why not to use a new Id‘s from Clover Configurator? New serial etc.
