I have installed High Sierra on GA-Z77X-UP5 TH with the graphics glitch (I have a GTX 660ti)

I make this little guide for GA-Z77X-UP5 TH owners with other graphic card.
I highly recommend test the installation in another hard drive.


1. After made an Installation USB with UniBeast, boot clover without "nv_disable=1"

2.Make the installation :
https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/...ierra-on-any-supported-intel-based-pc.235474/

3. With Clover Vibrant Edition :
Download Clover Configurator (Vibrant Edition)
Open Clover Configurator
Mount your EFI partition
Open EFI/EFI/Clover/Config.plist
Check the ACPI section and add (+) MATS to Drop Tables
Save
Close Clover Configurator

4. Clover Configurator
Ethernet : AppleIntelE1000e

At this point with Clover I had no sound, I found the script by toleda :
github.com/toleda/audio_cloverALC
(Thanks for people like that)

5. Execute the script with this options:
Confirm Realtek ALC898 (y/n): y
ALC898, Audio ID: 0 is not supported, continue (y/n): y
Vaild Audio IDs:
1 - 1/3/5/6 port Realtek ALCxxx audio
2 - 3 port (5.1) Realtek ALCxxx audio, Pink and Blue ports repurposed to outputs
Clover Audio ID Injection (y/n): n
Enter valid Audio ID (0 to exit): 1

Note : If you have two screens DISABLE "Inject Nvidia"

I'm not an expert in Hackintosh but I want to make my little contribution to this community

I recently installed HS using Storks guide using onboard video then installed my GTX 960 with Nvidia web drivers and everything works great.

The issue is solved, thanks to the following hint:

I did exactly that. Unplug my GTX680, connect HDMI to the internal graphics port, activate IGP in UEFI and set it to "boot first".
Then by using the IGP, I could upgrade to High Sierra without a hitch.
Afterwards, I just reversed everything and now I have a fully working installation of 10.13.3 without any further configuration

Hi! I tried with and without Nvidia drivers, Injecting and not injecting, with Intel HD... and nothing, so I went back to Sierra.

UPDATED : Sorry I don't have the PLIST because back to Sierra.
