Test 3 has been added to the Experiment. Unfortunately, another failure when booting from PCIe NVMe. Booting from USB, SATA, and Thunderbolt dock is okay.@CaseySJ
Odd that I can boot with the port of OpenCore's quirks + iGPU but then switch back to OpenCore with the same quirks except DisableVariableWrite (their replacement of EmuVariableUefi).
- Test 1: Success
- Test 2: Success
- Test 2, Increase DVMT to 128MB/MAX: Success
- Test 2, Increase DVMT to 1024MB/MAX: Success
- Switch to OpenCore and mirror quirks (except DisableVariableWrite) with test 2: Fail
- Test 2, Switch back to Clover, set DVMT back to 64MB/128MB defaults: Success
The GTX 1080 Ti will not be completely off, but macOS will not assign any driver to it. This means it won't initialize the card on the PCIe bus, so the card will only exhibit pre-initialization behavior that is coded into its firmware. Great!!! Thanks for the quick reply.
