Have you tried booting high Sierra with only one card?

Fair point - I thought of it too but would rather not dismantle my waterloop etc if I don't absolutely have too so am waiting for a workaround and using 12.6 in the meantime (which has proper drivers to begin with...)

Fair point. There may be a way to use a SSDT to disable one of the cards via software as OSX High Sierra boots...

So DP9, like DP8 works great on my laptop except that, when I use the Generic Brightness kext, the laptop crashes and restarts when I wake from sleep.  The Generic Brightness kext can load without problem and works fine.  But the laptop wakes from sleep and about 1-2 seconds later restarts.  What makes the Generic Brightness kext work is an entry in my DSDT for my LCD screen that reads "Name (_HID, EisaId ("LCD1234"))  // _HID: Hardware ID".  When I remove that entry, the Generic Brightness kext stops working but, even though it is loaded, its presence does not cause the wake-from-sleep crash.  I have tried both IntelBacklightFix.kext and ACPIBacklightFix.kext by RehabMan and can't get either of them to work, even when I remove the DSDT entry, LCD1234 and use his PNLF patch.  I use the simple PNLF patch in order to get the slider to show up in Display Preferences and there's no problem with that as far as I can see.  

 

Looking for suggestions.

I know it takes some patience, but it's the only effective method to solve the problem;

and you don't need any other graphics kexts, like Lilu.kext or IntelGraphicsFixup.kext, nor you have to modify ig-platform-id;

 

just patching dsdt and ssdts is required

 

cheers!

 

ok sandro sorted with disabled Nvidia gpu in ssdt files high Sierra is installed just need to get HD4600 gpu running good.thanks for all your help. Dave

IntelBacklight/ACPIBacklight have been broken since 10.12.4 IIRC... the proper method now is to use an AppleBacklight injector + a Clover patch + a PNLF SSDT (Google for more info).

 

Unfortunately, so far, this makes things worse, not better.  I couldn't use the SSDT-PNLF because it prevented my graphics from loading.  I changed the references to IGPU to GFX0 in the SSDT-PNLF and added it to my DSDT.  Graphics loaded without the custom SSDT but I lost my slider that I had with previous entries for PNLF and I lost battery function (Yes, I am using the most current version of ACPIBatteryManager.kext.). I tried removing LCD1234 and I tried putting it back.  It made no difference.  I used the Clover patch and installed the injector kext to L/E.  When it comes to screen brightness, none of RehabMan's methods have worked on my laptop.  It's rather frustrating although it is not an absolutely critical feature to have working.  I wish I understood what was going on from a technical standpoint and not just trying fixes created for other laptops by other people.  While I can follow instructions, I'm not learning anything about the nature of this problem.  Thanks for your help so far.  Don't give up on me just yet if you have any other ideas.

As far as i can see all i'm using for brightness on my laptop is SSDT-PNLF.aml and thats on Sierra and High Sierra. Nothing else. I'll attach the and my dsdt if you wanna check.

patched.zip

 

And this patch

<dict>
<key>Comment</key>
<string>change F%uT%04x to F%uTxxxx in AppleBacklightInjector.kext (credit RehabMan)</string>
<key>Disabled</key>
<false/>
<key>Name</key>
<string>com.apple.driver.AppleBacklight</string>
<key>Find</key>
<data>RiV1VCUwNHgA</data>
<key>Replace</key>
<data>RiV1VHh4eHgA</data>
</dict>
</plist>

Even if i add in AppleBacklightInjector.kext i can still boot and it gives me more brightness ranges. Hopefully some of this info helps.

thanks sandro I was hoping I wouldn't have to fix dsdt and ssdts.  I did disable gpu with DSDT reg fix but don't think thats enough.will have another go later cheers!

Please, niknod could teach me how to disable the Nvidia card through SSDT. You could send me your patched SSDT. As you know I had the same problem as you with MacOS High Sierra update beta 8 (WindowServer)
 
Thank you
 
P.D.:
 
I extend my request to any other member who can help me

i tested all. in script, some parts shown wrong info that you mentioned
0x3FF
all flags are disabled. just shown System Integrity Protection status: enabled on system profile, actually disabled all csr flags, script also shown enabled with "Custom Configuration"
 
0x3e7
except CSR_ALLOW_KERNEL_DEBUGGER, CSR_ALLOW_APPLE_INTERNAL, all flags are disabled.
 
i don't exactly know role of each flags. just if 0x67 crsactive config, system profiler recoginzed "SIP: disabled".
At high Sierra, the value 0x67 does not seem to be a big problem. because The 0x67 value contains the flags we need most.
as result, i think that useful values is 0x3FF to avoid any situation in future

      Making a High Sierra USB Installer Entirely From Scratch in Windows
      This is a proof of concept tutorial, to show it's possible to create a vanilla High Sierra installer, entirely from scratch, in Windows (even without App Store downloaded "Install macOS High Sierra.app" from a real Mac ).  @PikeRAlpha's link to Apple's Software Catalog provides us with all the URLs necessary to download the needed files directly from Apple instead of some dubious source from the internet...
       

      Pre-Requisites
      8GB or larger USB drive.  Edit: Recommend 16GB or larger for macOS Catalina 10.16 Boot Disk Utility v2.1.2017rev021b from @CVAD TransMac (free 15 day trial) Paragon Hard Disk Manager Free Download Installer Files Directly from Apple
      1)  Browse Apple's Regular Software Catalog and find the URLs to download the following 6 installer files...
      BaseSystem.dmg BaseSystem.chunklist InstallInfo.plist InstallESDDmg.pkg AppleDiagnostics.dmg AppleDiagnostics.chunklist (Hint - search page for "InstallESD" to find its URL and others nearby)

      to a folder named "SharedSupport" on your Windows NTFS drive.  A browser download manager (eg Chrono for Chrome, dTA for FireFox) is handy since InstallESD is >4GB ---> allows you to pause/resume interrupted download...

      2)  Rename InstallESDDmg.pkg to InstallESD.dmg
      3)  Edit InstallInfo.plist with WordPad/text editor to remove the chunklistURL and chunklistid keys for InstallESD, and renaming it from InstallESDDmg.pkg to InstallESD.dmg (example of edited file attached to this post)...
      Note:  You can verify the SHA1 checksum of your InstallESD.dmg and BaseSystem.dmg with the correct ones at this website.
      Boot Disk Utility to format the Installer USB and Restore OS X Base System HFS partition
      1.  Format USB with BDU & latest Clover ---> creates boot files in CLOVER partition + second FAT partition
      2.  Extract 4.hfs from \SharedSupport\BaseSystem.dmg with BDU --> save to it's local folder
      3.  Restore 4.hfs to USB second partition with BDU --->  2nd partition becomes bootable "OS X Base System"
      Paragon Hard Disk Manager to extend HFS Partition to its Full Extent
      Open Paragon Partition Manager Free and resize the second partition of the USB drive to the full size allowed.  Don't forget to apply the changes at the end...
      Transmac to Copy "SharedSupport" folder to OS X Base System
      1.  Open the TransMac program and navigate to the HFS+ Volume/Install macOS High Sierra.app/Contents folder.  Right click anywhere in the empty space on the RHS pane and select "Copy Here"...
      2.  In the next stage, select the "SharedSupport" folder we created above as the "Files and Folders to be copied to the Mac Volume"...
       
      Clover Settings
      Clover configuration is required now.  The default config.plist (in the Clover FAT32 partition of the USB) maybe sufficient to boot your machine if you’re lucky.  If not, the hackintosh-vanilla-desktop-guide has some good explanations on the various settings available and also offers sample configuration files based on CPU type.  Also, look at the Clover Wiki, Clover Instructions and Clover Configuration Thread for pointers and edit /EFI/Clover/config.plist accordingly with Wordpad or Notepad.
      The location of the important configuration files for Clover are summarized below
      config.plist--->EFI/CLOVER folder DSDT.aml with or without SSDT.aml--->EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/patched (don't need one if your DSDT is auto patched by Clover in config.plist) Kexts eg FakeSMC, NullCPUPowerManagement --->EFI/CLOVER/kexts/<osx version> or /Other. NB BootDiskUtility by default already has FakeSMC.kext installed here.  You may need to add VoodooPS2Controller for your laptop keyboard/trackpad to work. If UEFI booting, you will most likely need one of the OsxAptioFixDrv-64 drivers copied from /EFI/CLOVER/drivers-off/drivers64UEFI to /EFI/CLOVER/drivers64UEFI. If you want to use the installer to run High Sierra in Windows on VMware, you can follow my guide to set up the Virtual Machine and replace Clover's default config with EFI_Clover for VMware (which is compatible to run in VMware).  In the screenshots below, I have attached the USB Installer (in this case PhysicalDrive7) to my macOS Virtual Machine.  Reboot the system to the USB installer to install High Sierra ...
      What happens if we don't have access to TransMac or Paragon Hard Disk Manager?
      Not a problem, as long as we get "OS X Base System" bootable, we can launch terminal from the Utilities Menu to copy the SharedSupport folder over to the Installer app.  In essence, we will build the full installer app = 5GB+ on the target HD eg "Macintosh HD", by copying both the "small" installer app = 15MB (on "OS X Base System") and the SharedSupport folder from the NTFS volume (mounted in this example on /Volumes/DATA)...
      -bash-3.2# cd / -bash-3.2# cp -R Install\ macOS\ High\ Sierra.app /Volumes/Macintosh\ HD/ -bash-3.2# cp -R /Volumes/DATA/SharedSupport /Volumes/Macintosh\ HD/Install\ macOS\ High\ Sierra.app/Contents/  
      ...then start installation with the startosinstall utility...
      -bash-3.2# /Volumes/Macintosh\ HD/Install\ macOS\ High\ Sierra.app/Contents/Resources/startosinstall --volume /Volumes/Macintosh\ HD --converttoapfs NO --applicationpath /Volumes/Macintosh\ HD/Install\ macOS\ High\ Sierra.app  
      The above steps can be automated with the attached "startosinstall.command" script, which will assemble "Install macOS High Sierra.app" on "Macintosh HD" and launch the startosinstall utility targeting the "Macintosh HD" volume.  Copy/download to "Macintosh HD", then run in terminal (after attaching DATA USB with /Shared Support folder)...
      cd "/Volumes/Macintosh HD" chmod +x startosinstall.command ./startosinstall.command Updated Download Links for macOS Mojave 10.14.6_18G103
      Browse Apple's Regular Software Catalog and find the URLs to download the following 6 installer files...
      BaseSystem.dmg BaseSystem.chunklist InstallInfo.plist InstallESDDmg.pkg AppleDiagnostics.dmg AppleDiagnostics.chunklist  
      Note: In Mojave, Apple has removed the --converttoapfs NO and --applicationpath arguments from the startosinstall utility....
       
      eg to use startosinstall for the above section "What happens if we don't have access to TransMac or Paragon Hard Disk Manager?", the syntax is now
      -bash-3.2# /Volumes/Macintosh\ HD/Install\ macOS\ Mojave.app/Contents/Resources/startosinstall --volume /Volumes/Macintosh\ HD  
      This basically means that for Mojave, the default installation will always convert the target volume to the apfs file system.
