> Should you bother changing to iMac19,1?@hitch21,
Based on the background information you provided, here are some additional comments while we wait for the compressed Clover folder:
- Should you bother changing to iMac19,1?
- If everything is working with your current sys-def, then there's not much reason to change.
- However, we have recently discovered that VDA Decoder does not work with sys-def MacMini8,1 if headless platform ID is used. But it does work when iMac19,1 is used. So that might be a reason to consider the change. But if you don't routinely work with H.264 files then there's not much point.
- Have you tried iMac19,2 instead?
Also, I saw in one of your messages that you compared benchmarks with iMac19,1 vs the other and the system was running faster with iMac19,1. Is that true? Are you also able to explain why? Are there some system optimazation done based on the system name and not on the actual hw used? that seems to be crazy, Apple
> Have you tried iMac19,2 instead
Yes, I did. Same issue.
I have attached the EFI folder, as well as content of the Library/Extensions folder and ioreg file. The serial numbers in there is freshly generated and not registered with Apple. Hope the other content is safe
You'll see in there that currently the Devices -> Properties have some settings. I also tried with no settings there or with no device-id, or other platform-id and was still having same issue. Was booting fine with iMacPro1,1 but as soon as I changed to iMac19,1 it panicked.
I finally got it working. The issue was in BIOS to my suprise.
I had the Power -> CEC 2019 Ready option enabled from the time I was playing with it. It was fine for iMac18,3 and iMacPro1,1 and Macmini8,1 but for some reason causing panic for iMac19,1. Now with the option disabled I can boot into Mac and have it defined as iMac19,1, yay.
I have attached fresh set of EFI. I'd attach ioreg file as well but it shows my new and registered serial number and not sure how to remove it from the file.
If I may, can I ask some other questions?
My graphic card is installed in PCIEX4 (in BIOS as SLOT2), which is the most bottom slot, as I can not fit all the PCI cards in if I have it in the top position, SLOT 1. In BIOS Initial display output is set as SLOT 2. It seems to be working fine in Windows and seems to be shown fine in System Report. But some applications, like VideoProc, Hackintool are showing the Intel 630. Is that expected or do I have something wrong setup?
