Now preview works, but I see only radeon hd 7xxx.

For best performance should I see the hd630 too? 

I see on cinebench now my score is 110, with high sierra it was 130...

Post the whole EFI folder and I'll take a look.

The 20 points drop in cinebench score is not usual unless the iGPU is totally disabled which can explain the performance drop.

 

Add this under the Kernel and Kext Patches

name: com.apple.kext.AMD7000Controller

find: 37787878

replace: 32373058

There is my efi https://drive.google.com/file/d/1i7-0VLYg-5naqgHF8gIQiFhPBLQ_g4B1/view?usp=sharing

 

Do you think is better to see the iGPU too even for FCPX performance?

 

Now I see this

Your EFI folder seems ok, download the MacX Video Converter Pro and see if the hardware encoding support is enabled, if it is enabled it means that Intel Graphics is detected by macOS and there's no need to add the extra setting in config, if not you can use the same config.

 

You might need to do a system cache rebuild to make macOS rebuild the kext caches after you make the changes.

I see it in istats, but not in system, I see a great slowdown in games and the GPU processor is always at 100%.....

If you see a decrease in performance revert back to your previous settings and re run the tests and compare the results.

WEG can affect the GPUs performance on some cases.

Hi

 

I read first post and all others on this topic. No others solutions than change SMBIOS profile. Only Imac13,1 or Imac13,2 works with PCI-E Primary.

 

For my mobo Asus P8z77-v pro, Nvidia GT640 cards:

  • iGPU is activated by default: set to primary, Inject-Intel and ig-platform in config.plist-----> no result for jpg in Preview and Quicklook. :(

Hi Matgen84,

 

iGPU should be activated but it shouldn't be set as Primary, your GT640 should be set as primary.

Hi Cyberdevs

 

My Asus motherboard have 3 possibilities: auto, PCI-E primary, iGPU Primary. All of them don't work for Preview and Quicklook (without change SMBIOS Profile). I search again.

 

EDIT: despite what is written in the Asus notice, I can't find iGPU multi-monitor (I think multi monitor is enabled by a default for this mobo). There is only "intitalization of the dedicated gpu" for LucidLogix® Virtu. If enabled, macOS restart just before Login Screen.

Even if your monitor connected to Nvidia gpu
In UEFI, you will still see boot and can enter bios menu.

No, this will only work if the mainboard's UEFI supports GOP and the GPU also supports UEFI, otherwise you'll loose the boot screen.

Yeah I know why you wrote that but I don't think GT640 has a UEFI BIOS, I might be wrong though.

 

I flashed my GT640 to UEFI Bios since 3 years. Also, I can select IGPU primary and use Nvidia PCI-e.  This way, I've HD4000 detected by macOS, Monitor Airplay option too. My mobo use multi-monitor by default.

 

For Preview.app and Quicklook, I think jpg issue is a bug, maybe. I try Preview.app alternative, Xee.app v3.5.3, it's works fine. :)

I just would like to share my experience with my new MSI B360 board here.

 

What I did:

1. enable integrated graphics in bios

2. PEG set as primary

3. Using Whatevergreen patching+ lilu

 

In About This Mac, no trace of iGPU is shown except for the RX 580. However, in ioreg clearly IMEI is loaded and using MacX Video Converter Pro, prove that hardware encoding is enabled. So yeah, I initially thought About This Mac is an indicative but I got fooled :P

 

However, if you'd like to see the cosmetics display in About This Mac, injecting intel in clover with ig-platform-id is the way to go.

 

Cheers to the OP for the guide!

Hi

 

I found: a new Lilu plugin kext. "NoVPAJpeg Lilu plugin: Disables the hardware JPEG decoding feature of the AppleVPA framework that breaks Preview and Quicklook on some systems" Click here

If the IGPU cannot be configured, this Lilu plugin should fix preview with any SMBIOS, says the author of this plugin.

 

Test only on my Asus p8z77-v Pro, Core i7 3770K, Nvidia GT640. I don't have any other motherboards and CPU for more tests.

 

Results for Preview and Quicklook:

 

macmini7,1 SMBIOS

  • IGPU primary/Nvidia GT640: plugins works
  • PCI-E primary/Nividia GT640: plugins works

Imac15,1 SMBIOS

  • IGPU primary/Nvidia GT640: plugins works
  • PCI-E primary/Nividia GT640: plugins works

Imac13,1 SMBIOS: was working before

      I was inspired by @duduclx post for installing El Capitan on a Dell Latitude E6410, so I decided to install Mojave 10.14.5.  Everything works perfectly except for sleep.  I'm starting this thread hoping to help others install Mojave on their E6410s and to diagnose and resolve the sleep issue.  This thread is not currently intended to be an installation guide and is better suited to the intermediate/advanced hackintosher.  Eventually, it may evolve into a guide.
       
      I started with this thread (Many thanks, @duduclx !!!) and ended up with the system captured in the attached files.  The keys were to change the LPCB._DSM.Name to "3b09" and remove all CLOVER configs not necessary for Mojave, plus some other items mentioned below.
       
      My system is as follows:
      Dell Latitude E6410 (I7-620m, Nvidia 3100M, 8GB DDR3, 512GB SSD, 1440x900 display, BIOS: A17) MacOS: Mojave 10.14.5 (APFS) (Patched with DosDude Mojave Patcher 1.3.3) MacModel: MacBookPro 6,2 (LPCB._DSM.Name "pci8086,3b09") Kexts: Lilu 1.3.6, VoodooHDA 2.9.2, AirportBrcmFixup 2.0.0, IntelMausiEthernet 2.4.1d1, ACPIBatteryManager 1.90.1, BrcmPatchRam2.kext, BrcmFirmwareRepo.kext, VoodooPS2Controller (the "Refined ALPS Touchpad" version - release 5, not the original version), USBInjectAll (with custom SSDT-UIAC) Wi-Fi: Broadcom BCM 94352HMB (with AirportBrcmFixup.kext) CLOVER (Legacy): R4961  
      Configuration items that may be different from what you have seen in other E6410 configurations
      LPCB._DSM patched with device-id "3b09" AND "name", "pci8086,3b09" for native Nehalem power management with MacBookPro 6,2 ECDV renamed to EC so that AppleBusPowerController loads AGP.VID._DSM patched with device-id "0a29" so that AppleGraphicsPowerManagement loads  No CLOVER Generate P or Generate C States (with the correct LPCB._DSM and MacBookPro 6,2, these CLOVER options are unnecessary for this architecture and only limit max multiplier and reduce number of P states) DSDT patched to include HDAU device (device-id 0x0be3)  
      What is NOT working:
      Sleep (display goes blank, but power light stays on.  System cannot wake and must be forced off with power button) Display brightness can be controlled with keyboard keys, but cannot be controlled with slider in Display settings.  The slider appears in Display settings (because of the backlight DSDT injection in AGP.VID._DSM), but the slider doesn't work (yet).  Haven't spent time to figure this out, but would love help. Graphics Power Management - AGPM loads (because 10de,0a29 device is injected), but there's no evidence that 3100m frequency and voltage is changing.
        What is NOT tested:
      SD Card Slot Smartcard Reader eSata (I have this disabled in my BIOS) Firewire Port (it does appear in the Network settings, just haven't tried it) Microphone Jack PC Card Slot (I have this disabled in my BIOS) Camera (I have this disabled in my BIOS)  
      What IS working:
      Everything else not mentioned above.   Speedstep/CPUPowerManagement is perfect, system temps are low, CPU multiplier operates as expected, battery life is long Shutdown is fast Display/graphics acceleration is perfect (thanks to DosDude's Mojave patcher) Brightness (adjusted with brightness keys on keyboard) works perfectly Battery Manager works (battery status is displayed in menu bar) simply by installing ACPIBatterManager.kext. Wi-Fi (after changing to Broadcom BCM94352HMB and installing AirportBrcmFixup.kext) Audio (volume adjustable, volume indicator appears in menu bar).  Switched to VoodooHDA from AppleALC after AppleALC caused slow boot due to "IOHDACodecFunction timeout." Ethernet port (with IntelMausiEthernet.kext) Broadcom BCM20702A0 Bluetooth (with BrcmPatchRam2.kext and BrcmFirmwareRepo.kext) Optical Drive External VGA (with corrected NVCAP.  Need NVCAP 04000000 00000100 0E000000 00000007 00000000 (credit: @PlutoDelic) for working external VGA display. Headphone jack Display Port (tested using DP > HDMI adapter)  
      Known issues and their solutions
      AAPL,clock-id and device_type do not appear in IORegistry for EHC1.  Solution is to use CLOVER on-the-fly patching/fixing/renaming for EHC1 and EHC2.  This has been completed and tested, but does not fix the sleep behavior.  This fix is not reflected in the attached files. ALPS trackpad performance is not good with the "standard" VoodooPS2Controller.kext that I initially used.  Switching to the "Refined ALPS TouchPad driver" is a big improvement.  I've implemented and tested this on my system.  The ALPS version of VoodooPS2Controller.kext mixes up a few keys.  Need to switch the Command and Option keys (System Preferences > Keyboard > Modifier Keys) and change keyboard type to ISO European.  The updated VoodooPS2Controller.kext is not reflected in the attached files. This proposed configuration uses an injected device-id (10de,0a29) for NVidia 3100m to get AGPM to load.  While I haven't observed any performance differences, a better approach may be to inject AGPM properties for device 10de,0a6c (the actual device-id for the 3100m).  This AGPM method is discussed later in this thread.  I have briefly tested this "FakeSMC.kext method" for injecting AGPM attributes without any noticeable changes in laptop/graphics behavior and have not updated attached files to reflect this change. IOHWControl is not loaded under AGPM (Should be AGP > VID > NVDA,Display-A@0 > NVDATesla > AGPM > gpu-control > IOHWControl as viewed in IORegistryExplorer).  It is loaded on a real MacBookPro6,2 running Mojave and is loaded on this Dell Latitude E6410 running High Sierra.  If I "Inject NVidia" via CLOVER, IOHWControl loads properly.  I have made this change and am testing it on my system, but have not updated the attached configuration files. The Dell Latitude DSDT (BIOS A17) has a bug in Method (GNOT).  In the method, the expression  If (LOr (LGreater (OSYS, 0x07D0), LLess (OSYS, 0x07D6))) always evaluates to TRUE, so the patched DSDT has no dependency on the value of OSYS.  I suspect that LOr should be replaced with LAnd, so that this expression is TRUE for variants of Windows 2001 and False for any other OS.  While this may have no affect on MacOS, it makes one wonder how such an obvious bug made it through Dell QA and is still present in BIOS A17.  Also makes one wonder whether the sleep problem (which no one has solved) was fixed in Windows to address another DSDT bug. The DSDT patch that duduclx refers to as "Intel GMA Ready" in his El Capitan Guide is not applied correctly to the DSDT attached to this post.  Somehow, the contents of patched _DSM are located in the PCI0.VID device instead of in Method (_DSM) within the PCI0.VID device.  MaciASL didn't complain about this, so it went unnoticed, but it doesn't appear to have had any affect.  I have completely removed this "Intel GMA Ready" patch from my DSDT since it is not necessary for Dell Latitude E6410's with NVidia 3100m, but have not updated the attached DSDT. The assigned value of ACOS in the DSDT is conditional on the operating system.  There is no condition for "Darwin."  The solution is to add a condition for "Darwin" (making it equivalent to one of the defined operating systems (e.g. Linux, Win7, etc), analogous to the assignment of OSYS.  I made this change in my DSDT (not yet reflected in the attached files), but have not observed any behavioral differences (sleep or otherwise).  EDIT: Another way to handle this might be to override _OSI with XOSI (defined in a custom SSDT).  Still learning about XOSI and haven't yet drawn a conclusion.  I'm currently experimenting with ACOS and OSYS equivalent to Win7 and Linux (manually patched in my DSDT which has not yet been updated as a new attachment to this post). The portType of the Internal Bluetooth device is portType=0 which, according to Rehabman's comments in SSDT-UIAC-All.dsl, is an external USB 2 port.  I believe that this should be an internal USB port (portType=2).  My custom SSDT-UIAC.dsl is wrong.  I just learned through trial and error that the HUB1 and HUB2 definitions in Rehabman's SSDT-UIAC-ALL.dsl apply to the ports on the EHCx USB hubs.  The solution is to include the HUB1 definition in SSDT-UIAC.dsl and change portType to 2 for HP15.  I have not attached an updated SSDT-UIAC.aml to this first post, but my current EFI includes an updated SSDT-UIAC.aml with ports HP15, 16 17 and 18 set to internal (portType = 2).  This change doesn't appear to affect/fix sleep, but it may prevent instant wake if we get sleep working.  
      Brief Installation Guide (for the experienced Hackintosher):
      Follow duduclx's guide for BIOS config Create your MacOS installer USB (Use DosDude's Mojave Patcher for Mojave) (start with High Sierra and not Mojave if you're new to hackintosh). Install CLOVER (Legacy) on installer USB using attached EFI as your guide for patched ACPI, kexts and config.plist Install MacOS to your SSD.  When you run DosDude's Mojave Patcher, DO NOT install LegacyUSBInjector.kext - you're going to use Rehabman's USBInjectAll.kext.  Also, do not install the DosDude SIP kext (you're using CLOVER to manage SIP). Install the following kexts in /Library/Extensions:  ACPIBatteryManager.kext, AirportBrcmFixup.kext, BrcmFirmwareRepo.kext, BrcmPatchRAM2.kext, FakeSMC.kext, FakeSMC_ACPISensors.kext, FakeSMC_CPUSensors.kext, FakeSMC_GPUSensors.kext, FakeSMC_LPCSensors.kext, IntelMausiEthernet.kext, Lilu.kext, USBInjectAll.kext, VoodooPS2Controller.kext (the "Refined ALPS Touchpad driver," not the original) Switch Command and Option keys to compensate for Refined ALPS driver issue (System Preferences > Keyboard > Modifier Keys).  Also change keyboard type to ISO European to fix the [ ` ~ ] key (to the left of the "1" (one) key. Install VoodooHDA Install HWMonitor application
