    Dual Nvidia GPU Possible? Sierra 10.12.6

    Not on a laptop no, that's not supported.
  2. https://opensource.apple.com !
  3. One cannot "disable" a hardware id. You can disable a device (through DSDT/SSDT patching or bootloader option. E.g. :"nv_disable=1") or you can fake a different device id (through DSDT injection or Clover configuration). -> What are you trying to achieve?
  4. Why don't you start by the beginning and state which system it's for, listing the chipset/CPU specs alongside? C2D/C2Q systems run on vanilla AICPUPM with full CPU SpeedStep if P-States + C-States generation is activated Sandy Bridge/Ivy Bridge systems require the AICPUPM patch (you can search for details of the patch on the IM forum). In Clover (and Enoch), you activate it as above or through CC. Without the patch, these systems usually KP. Haswell/later systems require the kernel patch for CPU power management because that's what handles it (you can search for details of the patch on the IM forum). In Clover, you activate it through the KernelPm option. Without the patch, these systems usually reboot.
  5. Any reason why you go with Clover instead of Chameleon on this old dinosaur?

    Nope, that chipset is unsupported. https://osxlatitude.com/forums/topic/2120-inventory-of-supported-and-unsupported-wireless-cards/

    Seems this laptop has Realtek ALC272 audio but I guess you can easily check that out. Then try and install the AppleALC kext with the recommended layout-id. https://github.com/vit9696/AppleALC/releases https://github.com/vit9696/AppleALC/wiki/Supported-codecs All info available on the related wiki here... https://github.com/vit9696/AppleALC/wiki
  8. Did you search the forum? http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/312045-atheros-wireless-driver-os-x-101112-for-unsupported-cards This being said, these Atheros cards only have poor support under macOS so you'd be well-advised to replace your AR9462 by a more compatible model. https://osxlatitude.com/forums/topic/2120-inventory-of-supported-and-unsupported-wireless-cards/
  9. This update installed properly and without any need for post-install manual intervention on all my Hacks. No reason why it'd be different on your platform. Try it but take a backup first...

    AICPMvers missing (but now found)

    If you think you have no proper or native SpeedStep with your Core2Quad CPU, you should not need any DSDT tuning. C2D/C2Q SpeedStep normally natively works with: activation of P-States + C-States generation in your Clover or Chameleon/Enoch settings FakeSMC keys (smc-compatible + REV/RVBF/RVUF) tuned to the values for the selected SMBIOS Mac model (for iMac10,1 profile: smc-mcp + 1.53f13) SMBIOS of Mac model with similar specs (in your case, iMac10,1 is the correct target imo) Full details available through this post: https://osxlatitude.com/forums/topic/2673-performance-tuning-with-fakesmc/

    Need valid EFI string for EVGA Geforce 8400 GS

    Please post copy of DSDT + saved output of IORegistryExplorer.
  12. Haswell (Intel 4th gen) is your upper hardware limit if you want to run ML and support for Haswell came only in ML 10.8.5. Broadwell (5th gen) support came with Yosemite 10.10.3, Skylake (6th gen) from El Capitan 10.11.4 and Kaby Lake (7th gen) from Sierra 10.12.6. For each generation, CPU support is handled at kernel level and iGPU support through new graphics drivers. Compatibility of a given OS X/Mac OS version with hardware is always backwards, not the other way round... So, you'd need 3 to 4 year old hardware to run ML and probably would not find that much of a significant performance boost compared to what you currently experience with your 2013 i7 MacBookPro (a MBP10,2 with i7-3540M + Retina display I presume)... ML is just too old for anything deemed "recent hardware".

    Need valid EFI string for EVGA Geforce 8400 GS

    You should not require any, that really is an obsolete method of graphics card properties injection. That card should be supported OOB with GraphicsEnabler set to Yes and eventual properties injection through DSDT. Can you post your DSDT and an IOReg extract?

    Graphics card dead on MACPRO3,1 osx 10.5.8

    You've posted in the Hackintosh section, not the Apple Mac section... You can look-up the specs of the MacPro3,1 at everymac.com, then search on-line merchant sites for a graphics card (2nd hand most probably). You should find models such as Apple-specific nVidia GeForce 8800GT or similar. A non-Apple or unflashed compatible card will give you black screen during startup.
  15. La dernière version de Clover plutôt...
