  1. There's a post at reddit that mentions add-on PCIe cards from Sonnet for MacPro. If you look at their web site, you'll only see 10G cards these days but they used to offer 1G cards too: https://www.sonnettech.com/product/computercards/index.html https://www.sonnettech.com/product/legacyproducts/index.html Products compatible with High Sierra are listed here and you'll find 3 x 1GE cards in the list. They can be purchased online, off well-known auctions sites for instance. Another post at reddit mentions other cards such as Intel I210-T1 Network Adapter E0X95AA for instance. Available online too and off same kind of places.
  2. [GUIDE] 1st Generation Intel HD Graphics QE/CI

    Again, this thread is about getting acceleration on 1st gen Intel HD graphics. Please take your other matters in a separate thread.
  3. Intel HD 4600

    This is a little old and somehow obsolete since Rehabamn's FakePCIID kexts superseded the need to patch/modify the Haswell graphics kexts several years ago: https://github.com/RehabMan/OS-X-Fake-PCI-ID Assuming you run Clover, use Clover Configurator app: in Device tab, fake desktop HD4600 id 0412 in Graphics tab, select Inject Intel and inject Azul layout-id 0x0a260006 Or inject this via the DSDT patch posted above in 2014. Then, inject (through Clover's EFI folder) Rehabman's FakePCIID + FakePCIID_Intel_HD_Graphics kexts or install them in, say /Library/Extensions (which will then require to repair perlmissions and rebvuild the cache). This replaces the need to binary patch the vanilla Azul framebuffer + HD5000 kexts. Finally, the IOGraphicsFamily binary patch tends to differ from one OS X/macOS verison to another so you'll clearly have to look-up and apply the relevant one. It's all readily available on this site.

  5. Increase vram - hd 3000

    You re-instate your backup in /S/L/E with its native name in /S/L/E, thereby replacing the patched kext you currently appear to have,. Then, repair kexts permissions and rebuild your cache.
  6. Would it help if I wrote it in French? I strongly recommend you start by reading High Sierra installation guides so that you become familiar with the various steps involved. Meantime, let's avoid the off-topic or topic pollution. Afaik, this particular topic was answered and the matter closed.
  7. Increase vram - hd 3000

    Depending on the Clover version you're using, you may or may not need the "com.apple.driver." syntax in front of the kext name. Rebuild your cache with the vanilla SNB framebuffer, reboot and, if you still do not obtain 1024MB VRAM, given that your binary patch appears Ok in your Clover config, I'd give the revised kext name a shot.
  8. Unfortunately, none of the available sidebar options offer the facility to follow contents/topics in the manner that existed previously, i.e. the list of threads in which one had posted at some point in a recent or distant past. I too found this useful but I guess I'll have to learn to live without it. What we have now is a list of topics one created or the list of posts one wrote. The latter is the closest to whart existed before but there's no options to sort it per containing thread. I guess one has to choose to follow a thread now as opposed to the previous automatic following of threads in which one had posted.
  9. BCM5722D

  10. You appear to have a Gigabyte H55M-S2H card with LGA1156 CPU, i.e. a 1st gen Core "i" CPU. It would be most helpful if you would post your system's specs. This being said, there are a number of anomalies in your Clover config file if my assumptions are correct for your hardware: ACPI section: why you drop CPU power-related SSDT? That's typically for Sandy Bridge and later platforms. You've correctly selected Generate P-States + Generate C-States and that's all that you should need. in Kernel & Kexts Patches: why do you apply AICPUPM, that's for Sandy/Ivy Bridge platforms. In the same respect, why do you apply KernelPm which is for Haswell and later platforms (and usually only for laptops). Same for KernelXCPM. I'd remove all those. in SMBIOS: why do you select MacPro4,1, i.e. a Xeon-based workstation model? It's been known to cause issues for years, especially with nVidia graphics cards and you appear to have one... I think a late-2009/lid-2010 1st gen Core "i" iMac profile such as iMac11,1 or iMac11,2 or iMac11,3 would be more appropriate and much better. in Clover/ACPI/Patched folder: you appear to have generated a CPU power management SSDT. I don't think you would need that at all on a 1st gen Core "i" platform.
  11. I know cached kexts patching could be a problem with recent versions of Clover. Did you try to update the on-the-fly patches to take the full path of cached kexts into account rather than just the kext name? Could be where your problem is...

  13. Intel HD Graphics (2500) Ivy Bridge macOS HighSierra

    My own understanding was that HD2500 was only fully support in ML 10.8.3 to 10.8.5 and, thereafter, only partially supported (CI only, no QE). Maybe you can detail what you actually obtain in terms of graphics support/graphics acceleration.
