It is really weird how one user can have an ideal setup and another with similar hardware can't. If you are going to use a current iMac definition it seems that the IGPU setup can be a crucial factor. If its not set up correctly then problems arise. iMac 14,2 has been a good all around ID that works for Nvidia and AMD cards, but some still have issues with it. personally, I've used MacBook, iMac, Mac Mini and Mac Pro definitions on the same system, ran benchmarks and couldn't tell the difference. Others insist on matching their Symbios to their hardware for optimal performance. It may make a difference if using pro apps that require the specific use of a particular hardware component. I know that the 18.3 ID can be fussy and requires a few fixes and patches to get it to act like a real Mac so its sometimes just easier to try a different definition that works for you. If you want to try it again I would get a spare disk and meddle with it till you get it working well then make it your main setup. Read up on guides for your motherboard and cpu and which version of OS as well. Good Luck, and have fun or at least try to.
I had a lot of problem with 14,2
I enabled IGPU in BIOS, but NO inject intel in Config.plist.
No whatevergreen, and I can quick look jpg without any problem.
Final Cut Pro works well.
Update: it crashed, so i change to 18,3
Update: 18,3 crashed, back to 14,2. I have no idea what should i do.
