Have had Hackintosh since 10.4. From Snow to Sierra with 2 video cards and 4 displays-monitors. Solved minor video problems but all worked perfectly.
Sierra working with GT 620 and GT 710 and 4 monitors. GT620 need some settings but GT710 direct OOB.
Installed High Sierra 10.13.4 (17E202) HFS using VESA mode.
HS does not work with GT 620, direct or web drivers.
Usually sleep does not work with this mobo-video cards combo, but it does not bother me.
HS works with GT 710 cards with Web Drivers but has serious issues regarding gremlins, blurs, lag, poor quality, etc. I guess I could live with that but I hope not.
Without Web Driver we have a weird error that I haven't seen reported. It is a gIOScreenLockState error but not the kind I've read about, during boot. ( Image Attached).
Basically HS boots fine, -v used and all seems fine. Login Screen is shown, password input and for a sec or two one can see the finder with opened windows, etc and then the following console message is seen top left:
IOConsoleUsers: time(0) 0->0, lin 0, llk 1,
IOConsoleUsers: gIOScreenLockState 3, hs 0, bs 0, now 0, sm 0
and we are back at the Login Screen ad infinitum
This has been going on for 2 months or so and as you can imagine I have tried a lot, I mean a lot, of kexts, patches, clover options, efi drivers, etc to no avail.
The last experiment I tried was to replace HS NVIDIA related kexts, and other related, from latest Sierra. No joy. Actually destroyed internal structures. Had to do major surgery to rescue the installation (kextcache, prelinkedkernel, etc). Barely made it.
So after all this, yesterday I tried disconnecting the displays from one card and just keep one card with a HDMI and a VGA monitor. (Should have tried this months ago ). It WORKED. That is, with default macos Graphics Driver works perfectly. No gremlins, lag, blurs, etc.
Just that I am missing 2 more displays
So, hope somebody can guide me to a dual video card installation that works, mixing HDMI with VGA or DVI-D, whatever. I do not know if Radeon will have this problem. I am tired of buying video cards.
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
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)
Graphics: Nvidia GTX 1050
Monitor: Dell P2715Q @ 4k / 60Hz, Display Port
Wifi / Bluetooth: BCM94360CS with PCIE
Onboard GPU: disabled
OS: High Sierra 10.13.3

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.
MOBO: Gigabyte P85-D3
GPU: Gigabyte GTX 750 Ti Windforce (2GB VRAM)
RAM: 8GB DDR3 1600MHz
Ethernet: Realtek RTL 8111
Drives: SSD Goodram 240GB and HDD 1TB.
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.
