    I enjoy reading the write-up, Great Work . but where are your source of information, while dealing you, you have a habit taking others work, repackage and become your work or become Ha_C mini from version 1.2-1.3. Like another Tonymax86 . If all those write up are all your work, I respect. It unlikely after some investigation.

    With your help, I got Apple Hardware Video Acceleration working on aw13r3.
     
    As for aw15, it did not work despite passing VDADecoderChecker test, I think is because the Intel IGPU was not turn on properly (G-SYNC feature most likely ).
    I will try manual IGPU injection later when I know how.
     
    I am grateful to you for your help, never learned so much before in such a short time. Thanks You !

    aw15 fail despite injecting Intel Graphics + Shiki.kext. ( due to g-sync config ?), tried rename GFX0 to IGPU, system refuse to boot to desktop.

    @pure.wisdom,
     
    Managed to resolve those areas you pointed but I would like to highlight AppleLPC.kext on my aw13. Insert LPC ID 0xa152(aw13) and 0xa154(aw15) into SSDT-LPC, aw15 managed to load AppleLPC.kext without issue but not on aw13.
     
    For some reason aw13 refuse to load AppleLPC.kext via ssdt injection but it loads with kext injection. This behavior also cause the audio not to work consistently using ssdt injection for audio layout 13 but it work well with kext injection. Will find out more when time permit.
    Bottom line, got AppleLPC.kext loaded on both machine.
     
    Again, Thanks for your help & pointers.
     
    Attachement:
    HDAEnabler13.kext = kext injector for audio layout 13
    Injector.kext = AppleLPC.kext injector with LPC ID a152 & a154 added
    SSDT-LPC.dsl = with aw13/15 LPC ID added

    You can capture the boot log after system recover, the command below will capture log after the date specified,
     
    log show --predicate "processID == 0" --debug --start  `date "+%Y-%m-%d"` > ~/Desktop//boot.log
     
    Once you collected the log, open with text editor or something and search for "system boot", you can find your boot log for the time and date you want.

    Just posted my clover config for aw13r3. Something else is not right, you should be using 0x591b000,  OLED should work, I remembered i need some extra DVMT patch, I don't have the OLED version with me now so I can't verfiy. Did you install IntelGraphicsFixup.kext ? or Google "DVMT OLED osx86" should help.
     
    GTX 1060, just install matching Nvidia Webdriver version (OS X 10.12.6), under clover config, enable NvidiaWeb and make sure nv_disable is 0 or disable. Also remove SSDT patch for disable DGPU and you should be good to go.
     
    Driving 2 video output to a single display will need some sort of muxing (Optimus feature ?) which is not available in OS X, but you can drive 2 separate display though. I am driving the internal LCD panel with Intel 630 and external monitor with GTX1060 via hdmi or dvi, concurrently.

    Thanks again Xela, and happy traveling.  I'm using the 15R3 so I'm now trying your latest attached files.  Also, I CAN make HEVC activate, but once I do FCPX crashes immediately upon launch.  So, I'm still trying to figure out why.  
     
    I enable HEVC by putting 0x59128086 into Devices IntelGFX, and putting 0x59120003 into ig-platform-id.  I do NOT inject Intel (should I?)  Also, Nvidia is installed.  These settings give me both HD630 Metal enabled and Nvidia Metal enabled, and HEVC.  
    But FCPX crashed on launch.  So frustrating.  
     
    Anyway, if anyone has any tips on getting HEVC and Steam VR working in FCPX, please let me know.
     
    (Just to reiterate.  I currently have Steam VR working in High Sierra, no lag, on my GTX1070.  But as soon as I tell FCPX to output to VR Monitor it goes to something like 1 fps and has huge hitches in tracking.  And, I can only get that far if I disable HEVC.

    That's not good:

    Probably, Device Specific properties are not injected correctly. Try to apply patches directly to DSDT. Copy origin folder to desktop. Then download latest iasl from here: https://github.com/acpica/acpica/archive/master.zip
    Open terminal and write:
    cd ~/Downloads/acpica-master/ make cd ~/Desktop/origin rm SSDT-*x*.aml iasl -da -dl DSDT.aml SSDT-*.aml Open DSDT.dsl and fix errors (if you have problems, ask here). Then search for dGPU:
    grep -l \_SB.PCI0.PEG0.PEGP *.dsl Add this code to an existing dGPU _DSM Method or create a _DSM Method into DSDT:
    Method (_DSM, 4, NotSerialized) // _DSM: Device-Specific Method { If (LEqual (Arg2, Zero)) { Return (Buffer (One) { 0x037 }) } Return (Package (0x04) { "@1,built-in", Buffer (Zero) {}, "hda-gfx", Buffer (0x0A) { "onboard-1" } }) }  You can rename PEGP to GFX0 from config.plist (as you already do) or you can apply directly the rename to Acpi tables that have it (you can see a list from the grep -l command above).
    Then, you should add those DSDT + SSDTs to patched folder. From what i can see, you have brightness methods in SSDT-15, so you have a good chance to enable a full working brightness slider.

    Just sharing my experience with my desktop.
    These are the patches i added to my DSDT:
    PNLF patch taken from a real iMac14,2 DSDT (with GeForce GTX 775M):
    Scope (_SB) { Device (PNLF) { Name (_ADR, Zero) // _ADR: Address Name (_HID, EisaId ("APP0002")) // _HID: Hardware ID Name (_CID, "backlight") // _CID: Compatible ID Name (_UID, 0x0A) // _UID: Unique ID Name (_STA, 0x0B) // _STA: Status } } Changed _DSM method of Nvidia (PEG0.GFX0) to match iMac14,2 and iMac17,1 ioregs:
    Method (_DSM, 4, NotSerialized) // _DSM: Device-Specific Method { If (LEqual (Arg2, Zero)) { Return (Buffer (One) { 0x03 }) } Return (Package (0x18) { "@0,connector-type", Buffer (0x04) { 0x02, 0x00, 0x00, 0x00 }, "@0,AAPL,boot-display", Buffer (0x04) { 0x01, 0x00, 0x00, 0x00 }, "@0,built-in", Buffer (Zero) {}, "@0,display-connect-flags", Buffer (0x04) { 0x04, 0x00, 0x00, 0x00 }, "@0,use-backlight-blanking", Buffer (0x04) {}, "AAPL,backlight-control", Buffer (0x04) { 0x01, 0x00, 0x00, 0x00 }, "@0,backlight-control", Buffer (0x04) { 0x01, 0x00, 0x00, 0x00 }, "@0,display-type", "LCD", "@1,connector-type", Buffer (0x04) { 0x00, 0x04, 0x00, 0x00 }, "@2,connector-type", Buffer (0x04) { 0x00, 0x08, 0x00, 0x00 }, "@3,connector-type", Buffer (0x04) { 0x00, 0x02, 0x00, 0x00 }, "hda-gfx", Buffer (0x0A) { "onboard-1" } }) } On this particular patch, i changed connectors to match my actual ones, but i think that you can still have the slider with HDMI (00080000) connectors.
    On real iMacs with discrete graphics, dGPU is hda-gfx=onboard-1. But probably, the trick is to set the @0 port as "built-in".
