Hi, i recently set up High Sierra on my AMD computer with the help of the amdosx community (i actually used an installer just to confirm that something would work in the first place before i spend hours for nothing, i can and could have downloaded High Sierra the "legal" way).
However the graphicscard is recognized properly, the 6gig are recognized and i have no artifacts and no screen tearing with the official nvidia webdriver,
but unfortunally, dark colors have horizontal dark stripes in them and specific bright colors like on left bar of system windows such as settings do flicker like low fps.
I only used the clover on the flash drive for now and i'd like if it's worth digging deeper of if i should just forget about it as it is a common nvidia problem on macOS.
Would be amazing to know.
Closer machine infos:
* High Sierra (misses a recent minor patch as my network is veeeery slow and i got this nvidia issue anyway so i mainly jumped back to linux)
* AMD fx8350
* Asus Sabertooth 990fx Ref. 2.0
* NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 6GB
Hi community !
Is anybody successful with 10.13.x and multiple GPUs on a desktop hack ?
My main rig (see in signature) HD4600 + GTX550Ti + GTX560 is working perfectly under 10.11.6 and 10.12.6.
Very simple to install, Intel IGPU set to active and primary in bios, inject intel and igplatformid in bootloader (enoch or clover), no nividia injection, since Fermi GPUs are natively supported. Smbios set to iMac14.2 for my Haswell CPU, and to avoid AppleGraphicsDeviceControl devices unloading.
But from 10.13.0 to 10.13.3, system boots fine until login screen where WindowServer crashes with a "no MTLDevice" error (MeTaL device I guess). I could workaround that error by unloading nvidia devices in AppleGraphicsDeviceControl, but that kind of defeats the purpose, since only the IntelHD4600 can then be used.
10.13.4 brings a little improvement, desktop can be reached, all 3 gpus active (AppleDisplay instances appear in IORegistryExplorer for Intel and Nvidias) but only Intel HDMI output shows desktop correctly, both nvidias (HDMI or DVI output) only show a black desktop where the mouse pointer can be moved normally. Displays can be arranged, orientation and resolution can be changed, as if everything was fine, but it is not.
Console shows the following repeated messages :
WindowServer (Skylight) : Unable to composite display surface due to null compositor.
WindowServer (CoreDisplay) : [ERROR] - Attempting to get capabilities from capabilities with no devices
Does anybody have an idea on how to avoid or workaround these errors ?
Things I've tried:
Bios Graphic Devices order changes (breaks everything unless IGPU is primary)
nvidia injection in bootloader (fails in enoch, disables secondary nvidia GPU outputs in clover)
Smbios changes and/or AppleDeviceControlPolicy plist edits (simply enables or disables nvidia outputs)
nvidia official or web drivers (no changes at all, even though webdrivers are properly loaded ; requires nvram emulation with enoch)
enoch or clover (no difference except clover boots a bit faster - than enoch with nvram - thanks to proper UEFI boot I guess)
lilu intel and/or nvidia and/or coredisplay graphicsfixups (no visible changes but graphics devices names, and thus enables or disables AGPM)
use binaries from Sierra 10.12.6 for CoreDisplay and/or Skylight frameworks (never reached desktop)
NVIDIAeGPUSupport (no changes)
I recently set up my hackintosh. Everything else works fine, the only issue is my monitor cannot come back from sleep.
If I click the "sleep" menu manually, the system goes to sleep fine. After the system sleeps for a while (more than a few mins, I guess it's called "deep sleep"), when I try to wake it up, the monitor wakes up but stays black screen. The machine is on.
If I leave the system to time out and sleep by itself, only the monitor goes off; when I try to wake it up, same symptom as above.
What I have tried (but none worked):
additional boot flag: ngfxpatch=pikera
additional boot flag: darkwake = 0
Motherboard: Gigabyte Z77x-UD5H
CPU: Ivy Bridge i5-3570K CPU @ 3.40GHz (quad core)

Monitor: Dell P2715Q @ 4k / 60Hz, Display Port
Wifi / Bluetooth: BCM94360CS with PCIE

I am looking forward to your suggestions. Thanks.
When I installed 10.13.4 I tried to boot macOS with iGPU enabled only in BIOS (without injecting and kexts, HD 4600) and my daily use dGPU (GTX 750 Ti, injected in config and web drivers enabled) and everything works fine, but it boots slower. There is a chance to make fully working dGPU and iGPU at one time? With kexts, injects, et cetera? Something like dGPU as eGPU and iGPU as main GPU? I don't want to break my build, so I am asking you before trying it.

Could you please help me enable the VGA port on the GT710 in 10.9.5 13F34 ?
It is currently booting fine through its HDMI port, web driver 334.0103f01 and config.plist arguments checked: Verbose (-v), npci=0x2000, dart=0, nvda_drv=1
The nvidia GT710 works fine through its VGA port and web drivers on a friend's Mac Pro 3,1
I must soon return this borrowed HDMI monitor, mine only has a VGA port so I'd appreciate your input.
