    Sierra on HP 800 G1 USDT

    yeah, the VGA port doesn't work at all, because no Mac's capable of running High Sierra have a VGA output, as far as I know. I'll be using both DisplayPort anyway, as I have just acquired another EliteDisplay E232 Thanks for confirming.

    Anyone tried using two monitors with the 800 G1? I currently have 1 x HP EliteDisplay E232 and I'm thinking of getting another one soon.. if it will work

    I really should have checked this thread more thoroughly before posting.. I found the comment about PAVP issue, installed Lilu and IntelGraphicsFixup and no more freezes! Now im wondering if its possible to use some other audio kext, instead of VoodooHDA? Perhaps AppleALC plugin for Lilu? Anyone tried?

    Sierra on HP 800 G1 USDT

    So im having issues with my HP EliteDesk 800 G1 USDT machine. I can make it crash by viewing certain websites in Safari.. it causes a hard lockup. Hi all, So I have built quite a few hackintoshes over the last decade, and have usually ended up with rock solid machines. Currently, I have 2 hackintoshes, my main one being a liquid cooled i7-4770, 32Gb RAM, 240Gb m.2 SSD, GTX 980, and a bunch of other SATA SSD's for photoshop caches, after effects etc.. this machine has been rock solid, and never skips a beat. Currently on macOS 10.13.2.. However, my other hackintosh is where I am having some issues. It's a HP EliteDesk 800 G1 - i5-4570T, 16Gb RAM, 256Gb EVO 850 SSD, with onboard Intel 4600 graphics. Now, for every day tasks, this machine has been very stable, and even handles my 'at home' photoshop/after effects/final cut pro x workload. The issue I have been facing though, is that certain websites seem to make the machine hard lock. This ONLY happens in Safari, and it seems to be triggered by some sites that have video players on them. Oddly, YouTube/Facebook etc do NOT cause the issue. An example URL that causes the hardware lockup is https://shareably.net/cat-takes-back-treats-ducks/ . If I view that URL in Safari on the HP EliteDesk, the machine hard locks within about 5 seconds. The same URL works perfectly fine on Chrome though. Also, its not just this one URL, but quite a few sites, and they all seem to use some sort of video player. Now, the HP EliteDesk 800 G1 is currently running macOS High Sierra 10.13.2. The only (non-standard) kexts I have loaded, are FakeSMC, IntelMausiEthernet and VoodooHDA. Please let me know what other information you might need to help me figure out why Safari crashes the machine.

    I followed this guide today, but found that the machine still wouldn't boot.. i had to manually select "KernelPM" patch when booting, even though it was in the config.plist (as copy/pasted from this thread). What I ended up doing was formatting the config.plist, and now it all works.. odd, I know, but hey, the machine is now working. Also, it should be mentioned that VGA output isn't supported at all by macOS so you must use the DisplayPort outputs to get to the desktop. Some users might not realise this. All in all, now that its working, its working really well.. this is a neat little replacement for a MacMini. I have a 256Gb Samsung SSD in mine, and its nice and zippy.
