Hi! What do you mean when you say I would have "better luck than the rest of [us] with the non-3d model"? Does it mean that the 3d model works better, or that the non-3d model works better? Can I choose to use between the 3d or the non-3d version? I don't think I would get 3d support on the hackintosh, would it?
In the 3d model, you can get the nVidia graphics card to actually work for 3d graphics (I don't know if stereoscopic 3d works though). In the non-3d model, you'd be confined to using the Intel HD graphics card.
Would I need a different DTSD file if I upgrade the bios?
Yes. But they are available in this thread, as well as Tonymac86.com threads.
