    Proper IntelUHD 630 Fake Id and ig-platform Ids issue

    Okay guys ended up getting some help to be fully working..Turned out my system was indeed Hardware accelerated....But what happened was that for certain workloads the IGPu kicks in...That is normal for FinalCut and how apple coded the app....The bruceX benchmark is mostly CPU+GPU only...so AMD cards will excel in this area because of OPenCL....So i will be looking to purchase a AMD card soon and Ill be good to go...thanks Ill post below for reference in case anyone may need it fully working...
  2. Hi guys am in some kinda confusion here....My Hackintosh build is kinda basically fully working...usb,audio and stuff...Am on 10.13.6...My problem is finding the correct ids..I am seeing a lot of different suggestions all over ..but it is driving me crazy because according to some of the suggested ids i either get Final Cut Crashing ...If it's not crashing it's only using up my GPU and CPU...and the IGPu sits idle....Or some other ids i tried gave me Full CPU+ IGPu utilisation but my GPU sits idle while doing Bruce X benchmark or exporting Apple422 content..Also with H264....I use Intel Power Gadget App to monitor the IGPu usage...If i take a 4k Video footage and export it too 1080P HD..i cud see my IGPu getting used...All I want really is to be able to run a Bruce x benchmark or export too H264 also apple 422 and see CPU+GPU+IGPu all being utilised..That is my goal...I clock 20 seconds Flat on Bruce X Benchmark..I believe if i get the correct id combinations I cud do at least 12 seconds...I have a GTX 1080 of my own...last week I borrowed a RX 580 from a friend and i gave it a run on the BruceX Benchmark and it did the same exact time as my GTX 1080..20 seconds flat..nothing more nothing less...Below i have posted some pictures of what my current configs are..
  3. Hi well i am not sure why email notifications of the topics are not working for me tho..Now seeing replies..Okay well i looked at the Framebuffer Patching and read it..But thing is am not able to find and download the High Sierra 10.13.6 (17G2112) installer ...When i run the script it shows me a different version only 10.13.6 (17G65) is available tho...Does that mean it's useless now to apply the patch? And at Allan...Well i used the method there u posted and the good thing is..Video Proc states am fully accelerated and ready to go in the pic below....I used an app called Intel Power Gadget and it shows me when the IGPu is in use...When i do the BruceX test it sits idle...If i use FPCX and convert a 4K video down too 1080P using h264 i can see in the Utility the IGPu being full utilised...If i use adobe premiere or Adobe Media Encoder the IGPu get's utilised.....But only when using final cut Bruce X Benchmark and output at apple422 the IGPu sits idle..Only Processor and GPU power get's used up....I really wanted to get the IGPu working with the Bruce X test..Because i wanted to see if the GTX 1080 + IntelHD630+ i78700K Cud still reach close to 12 seconds and i may not need to go out and buy a new RX 580..lol.....I really want to try out the Framebuffer Patch honestly...To see if it will work...Do u think it will or may solve my little Issue? If yes i will have to start a project on it...Meanwhile i am looking to see if i get lucky with that special High Sierra Version.Your help will be very much appreciated..thanks
  4. Hi guys i was pretty much successful with my Hackintosh Build....Intel core i7 8700K + (RX 580 Borrowed) and GTX 1080 Personal Card...I have seen that once u configure clover properly to get the Integrated IntelHD IGPu 630 working alongside your Graphics Card for example the RX 580...u will get extra performance in rendering...Bruce X 5k Benchmark times should be 12 seconds Flat...But i am getting 20 seconds...I have overclocked my CPU but same thing..I have also already enabled the onboard graphics in Bios..Could u guys tell me what i need to do to get IGPu acceleration or Intel QuickSync enabled in MacOSX High Sierra? Would really appreciate it thanks.

    Ok thanks a lot for that information...will do over everything from scratch and see how it goes again....
  7. Hi guys ..I have a issue here...Can u please tell me why each time I reach the boot screen on Clover I always need to go into the Options with the little gear icon and then to Graphics Injextor> then go to FackID and put in 0x01660003 the default is 0x0000000 and then try to boot..It is the only way I will reach the desktop...But no acceleration...I also need to do that when am installing with my USB stick...I also need to go in and add in those options for it to boot the Installer screen.....Is there a way I can make this permanently on my post install so that I won't have to be doing it each time i boot with clover? And also can u help me achieve Acceleration...I tried using clover configurator to Inject Intel but for some reason it doesn't work...I am using Macosx Sierra.If i don't add in 0x01660003 I will be always stuck at this screen below. This below is the Clover Options I need to always go into before I boot

    Gigabyte GA-Z77x-UD3H El Capitan Success.

    Well as i think i had mentioned that the 2x usb 3.0 ports that are next to the Ethernet port was tested and working with usb 2.0 and usb 3.0 devices..and it was also transferring data at usb 3.0 speeds when I used it to copy a 4gig file over to my usb 3.0 external hardrive caddy...The other usb 3.0 ports which are located higher up the mobo wasn't working..
  9. Hi guys I would just like to share my El Capitan Success with owners of the same motherboard as mine..It is basically very simple thanks to Chris1111 and Friends..Clover El Capitan V5 usb tool found and can be downloaded here http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/307003-clover-os-x-el-capitan-usb/page-1 Creation of USB Installer is simple..make sure u have 16gb or more usb thumb drive.Plug it in the usb 2.0 ports for Installation of course.Download El Capitan from app store it would be in applications folder.All u need to do is fire up usb tool from chris and of course follow the guide at the link above. After u install and restart hopefully ok I have posted 2 pictures of what the settings should look like for Post Installation also this particular motherboard.Remember to select ''Clover Post''.If u encounter failed installation..Just install each of them one at a time..and not all together ok.. After that u just reboot and of course select your el capitan hardrive.You should see clover screen..Just hit Enter or Alternatively You can hit the space bar on your keyboard and select verbose mode so u can see what's happening...And that is basically it.. Working: 1:All USB 2.0 ports.2x Intel USB 3.0 ports next to ethernet port only..Full usb 3.0 speeds 2:Audio.Use voodooHDA. 3:Ethernet.Use AtherosGB Not Tested: Sleep and Wake My Hardware: Gigabyte GA-z77x-ud3h.ATI 7970.8 gb ram.Kingston Hyper X SSD.

    Fix: VoodooHDA KP (10.6.8 + 10.7.x)

    Hey AndersenTech I just wanted to thank you for sharing that voodoo helper and voodoo loader patch..It fixed my booting problem...I always had to use the -f flag to boot into mac osx..Now i don't... All i did was use voodoo patcher to install the custom voodoohda.kext then fireup vodoo helper again to make sure..then reboot and that was it..now i have working sound without any boot up problems..thaks a million pal..
  11. Just a heads up..Since I used your audio kexts been having a lot of problems cold booting.It would always stick on the grey apple screen....No problems between restarts..But once I slap in my mac osx dedicated HD I used to have to use -x and go into safe mode and then restart and hope it goes in..if not would of need to keep trying a couple times..But a couple days ago..I tried booting with -f and all is well now..No matter what once i boot with the -f flag It goes directly in with any hiccups..-f as they say ignores kext cache..Would need to investigate what the kext cache is and what it's tasks..But -f works a miracle when having problems booting....thanks..
  12. Well to be honest I had an opportunity to check to see if hdmi was working but didn't test it..I definetly need to check that out...But i am not sure if hdmi works with video and sound.
  13. Only thing Nate.Since I have used your kexts for the Realtek Audio have been experiencing a lot of inconsistencies with the booting up of mac osx mountain lion.Have to like do a couple safe modes and verbose boots for it to start...Really wish there was a way to fix this issue..Think i need to buy an external sound card soon.Do u have problems with booting?Maybe I am doing something wrong.
  14. ofcourse i would be willing to share everything...Only thing I have not done is try sleep/wake.....Cause i don't think I really need it to be honest...But the most important other things are working....Only thing I am yet to understand how the DSDT.AML works and how to install it properly.Could you check your inbox..I sent u a message.
  15. hey thanks a million for this post man..I installed mountain lion on my asus G51j differently...but only thing i didn't had was the correct audio kext..I looked far and wide for a working kexts..and finally saw your post and used your voodooHDA kext..I am so happy that it is working flawlessly..thanks a million for that..Now i have everything working perfectly on 10.8.2..Really appreciate it...
