I`m using a haswell CPU on z87 motherboard with a GTX1060.(hd4600 deact.)
SMBIOS iMac14,2 Mac-27ADBB7B4CEE8E61
10.13 (17A405) with web driver 378.
My English is not very good, After I read these links I'm still very confused.
Seems like shiki.kext should be use after hardware video decoding works?
But in the nvidiagraphicsfixup faq it says:To get hardware video decoding you are likely to need shiki.
I try to install lilu.kext and nvidiagraphicsfixup.kext but doesn`t work.
when i running ioreg | grep IMEI and ioreg -l | grep platform-id there is no output.
What kext do I need?(nvidiagraphicsfixup.kext imac.kext shiki.kext ...)
It is necessary to enable the builtin Intel GPU hd4600?
I will appreciate for your reply.

Change SMBIOS to iMac15,1 Mac-42FD25EABCABB274. update Serial for that model and install Lilu.kext, Nvidiagraphicsfixup.kext.


without the change to a SMBIOS model that is supported by the NvidiaGraphicsFixup.kext that kext will never load making the rest of the attempt futile.
