Dual dedicated GPU on Mojave (NVIDIA & AMD)

10 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

My desktop Hackintosh is running macOS Mojave 10.14.2 with two dedicated GPUs installed: NVIDIA GTX 1080 Ti, AMD Radeon HD 7970.

 

The AMD GPU is used primarily under macOS and the NVIDIA one under Windows.

 

macOS boots without issues as long as there are no displays connected to the NVIDIA GPU. If a display is connected then the display connected to the AMD GPU will become blank. The system can be accessed using Screen Sharing/VNC.

 

There are no problems if I swap PCI-e slots for the GPUs so that the AMD GPU is in the first slot (primary GPU), but I prefer not to do this.

 

I have tried to remove the whole PCI (bridge) device in the DSDT file and all the lines that refer to it. The PCI entries in ioreg and System Information are gone but System Information still shows an NVIDIA GPU under Graphics/Display.

 

Many of the suggestions I have found in guides and forum posts do not seem to apply here. My problem with some of the guides and answers is that they give the solution without explaining how anything works, or they tell you what to do without explaining the reasons behind it.

 

What else can I do? Thank you for any assistance you can provide!

 

I have attached some files that may help you help me.

 

DSDT_BIOS_3101.zip contains the original ACPI (*.aml) files without any patches.

Send me Steffens-iMac.zip is a file produced by RunMe.app, and do contain simple patches to rename some devices.

DSDT.dsl.patch is a diff of the original DSDT.dsl file and the one with the PCI devices removed (commented out).

 

Motherboard: ASUS Rampage V Extreme (X99), BIOS version 3101 (macOS does not boot with anything newer).

Clover version: 4813.

Thank you for your reply!

 

My idea is to use the AMD GPU while leaving the NVIDIA GPU in the computer. This already works but I have to (un)plug displays multiple times per day, every day. Maybe I can edit the first post to make that more clear. :)

The only reasons I could see having to unplug displays from the AMD GPU to the Nvidia GPU is if you are booting into something other than macOS Mojave. But I would suggest setting down and really thinking about what your main use case for whatever OS you use is. If you use Windows (for gaming) more than macOS, maybe you should just stick with that OS until all other OSes support your equipment.

There are no problems if I swap PCI-e slots for the GPUs so that the AMD GPU is in the first slot (primary GPU), but I prefer not to do this.

It shouldn't matter what slot the GPU is in, it depends on what GPU your monitors are connected to. You will not be able to utilize the AMD GPU in macOS while your displays are connected to the Nvidia GPU and vise versa.

I use macOS mainly for work (software development) and everything else except gaming. Windows is mainly also used for everything else including gaming. I cannot do without one or the other. I barely use my MacBook Pro because the performance of the Hackintosh is superior. There is a perceived performance loss in games (Windows) when the NVIDIA GPU is not installed in the PCI-e slot closest to the CPU.

 

I have been sticking with macOS High Sierra 10.13.6 but it seems to be possible to make Mojave work without causing me too much inconvenience considering that I have the hardware I need. :)

I can leave displays connected to both GPUs when the AMD GPU is installed in the first PCI-e slot. I have a signal on the display connected to the AMD GPU but obviously no signal on the displays connected to the NVIDIA GPU.

 

I cannot use any displays connected to the AMD GPU under macOS if the NVIDIA GPU is installed in the first PCI-e slot unless I unplug the displays connected to the NVIDIA GPU.

Hello,

 

My desktop Hackintosh is running macOS Mojave 10.14.2 with two dedicated GPUs installed: NVIDIA GTX 1080 Ti, AMD Radeon HD 7970.

  

The AMD GPU is used primarily under macOS and the NVIDIA one under Windows.

 

macOS boots without issues as long as there are no displays connected to the NVIDIA GPU. If a display is connected then the display connected to the AMD GPU will become blank. The system can be accessed using Screen Sharing/VNC.

 

There are no problems if I swap PCI-e slots for the GPUs so that the AMD GPU is in the first slot (primary GPU), but I prefer not to do this.

 

I have tried to remove the whole PCI (bridge) device in the DSDT file and all the lines that refer to it. The PCI entries in ioreg and System Information are gone but System Information still shows an NVIDIA GPU under Graphics/Display.

 

Many of the suggestions I have found in guides and forum posts do not seem to apply here. My problem with some of the guides and answers is that they give the solution without explaining how anything works, or they tell you what to do without explaining the reasons behind it.

 

What else can I do? Thank you for any assistance you can provide!

 

I have attached some files that may help you help me.

 

DSDT_BIOS_3101.zip contains the original ACPI (*.aml) files without any patches.

Send me Steffens-iMac.zip is a file produced by RunMe.app, and do contain simple patches to rename some devices.

DSDT.dsl.patch is a diff of the original DSDT.dsl file and the one with the PCI devices removed (commented out).

 

Motherboard: ASUS Rampage V Extreme (X99), BIOS version 3101 (macOS does not boot with anything newer).

Clover version: 4644 (macOS does not boot with the latest one, 4798).

Thank you for your reply!

 

Do you mean boot Windows with the -radoff boot flag?

Hello,

 

I have a double boot with Windows 10 and El Capitan

I am using a GTX 980, the Intel integrated GPU is disabled.

 

Now, I am using Mac OS for everything except gaming, for which I go on Windows.

With recent games, I am tempted to move to a more recent NVIDIA card, but can't because there are no drivers for them on Mac OS.

 

I was wondering: can I have two GPUs, each connected to my screen, and have a setup that allows me to expose only one of them to each system.

This means GTX 2080 on Windows, GTX 980 on Mac OS

Did you succeed? And if so, how?

 

I might then update the GTX 980 to an AMD one to benefit from Metal and update my Mac OS. But that's not what's important to me at the moment.

I'm using somewhat similar set-up. RX580 in PCI-e slot 1 and 1070 Ti in slot 2. Both are connected to the same monitor (HDMI for RX580 and DP for 1070 Ti). I use this guide to disable the nVidia card in macOS (method 4). In Windows, I just disable the RX580.

 

The computer boots with RX580 HDMI output and 1070 Ti DP output is treated as the second screen. When I boot into Windows, the RX580 is disabled during boot, so the last image of the Windows 10 loading screen stay in the HDMI output. It causes problem when the screen go to sleep in windows - no signal via DP and the monitor will change to HDMI to display the last boot image. Similar problem for macOS, except that it's a blank screen.

 

I've figured out how to work-around this problem in windows, by re-enable and disable the RX580 after every boot. By doing this, it clears out the HDMI output. However, I haven't figured out how to clear the DP output from macOS.

Hi, i have the exact same configuration as your setup. May i know if you have solved the problem? and how did you do so? Thank you.

      Hi,
       
      I am planning to make my hack ready for post High Sierra macos, finally xD  So I was looking for a proper AMD GPU, but it is not that easy to find a proper, recent guide for that. So compared a bunch of AMD GPUs, and this one seems to suit my needs the most: XFX RX 5500 XT Thicc II Pro 8GB
       
      Will this graphics card work properly in macos? And what macos version is the minimum here? I read so many contradictory statements, some older said that the RX5xxx support in macos still sucks and is much slower than in Windows. Is this still true? I currently have a nvidia GT1050, I guess it still will beat that nvidia card?
       
      Would this work with old but gold clover (recent version) + lilu and whatevergreen, or should I switch to OpenCore then?
       
      Thanks for info!

      This thread for installing Catalina on the Dell Latitude E6410 WITH NVIDIA GRAPHICS (BIOS A17, NVidia 3100m) will help you install a fresh installation of Catalina on your Dell Latitude E6410, it will help you upgrade from 10.15.2 to 10.15.x (if you originally installed Catalina from this thread) and it will also help you upgrade from Mojave 10.14.6 if you have already installed Mojave by following the instructions here.  The instructions in this first post assume that you are installing Catalina in an APFS container.  If you are curious about the evolution of this solution and how sleep/wake was solved, review the Mojave installation thread.
       
      Important: This Thread is NOT intended to help you install macOS on a Latitude E6410 with Intel HD Graphics (without Nvidia graphics).  The DSDT attached to this first post (in E6410-Catalina.zip) is VERY SPECIFIC to the Nvidia graphics implementation and has not been edited for HD Graphics - there are elements required for HD Graphics that are missing from the attached DSDT and there are DSDT mods that have not been tested with HD Graphics.  Also, the kexts attached to this first post are specific to a Broadcom Wi-Fi card which must replace the original Intel Wi-Fi card.
       
      This first post will be modified to reflect lessons learned and to reflect the most current working state of my Latitude E6410 (with NVidia 3100m discrete graphics) running Catalina.  Issues, observations and performance tips are recorded toward the bottom of this first post.  My recommended CLOVER configuration is specified toward the bottom of this first post.
       
      *** If you want help with your installation, please post your issue along with problem reporting files generated using @black.dragon74's problem reporting tool.  Google 'GENERATE PROPER PROBLEM REPORTING FILES black.dragon74' to find it. ***.  If Catalina's Read-Only protections block your installation of black.dragon74's gen_debug script, please copy the attached gen_debug script to your Desktop, change script properties with the terminal command 'chmod a+x ~/Desktop/gen_debug' and run the script from your Desktop.
       
      My system is as follows:
      Dell Latitude E6410 (I7-620m, Nvidia 3100M, 8GB DDR3, 512GB SSD, 1440x900 display, BIOS: A17) Wi-Fi: Broadcom BCM 94352HMB (replaced original Wi-Fi card) BIOS (version A17) configured as follows (leave default unless listed here): Boot Sequence: USB, Internal HDD, CD/DVD, Modular Bay HDD; Boot List Option: Legacy; Integrated NIC:Enabled; Parallel Port: Disabled; Serial Port: Disabled; SATA Operation: AHCI; Misc Devices: Enable Modular Bay, Camera, External USB, Microphone, Media Card and 1394; Latitude ON Reader: Disabled; Keyboard Illumination: Auto ALS and Input; Ambient Light Sensor: Enabled; OROM Keyboard Access: Disable; TPM Security: Disable; Computrace:Deactivate; CPU XD Support: Enable; Performance: Enable all options; Power Management: Disable Wake on AC, Disable Wake on LAN/WAN, Express Charge: Standard, Charge Behavior: Enabled; Keypad: Fn Key Only; Mouse/Touchpad: Touchpad/PS-2 Mouse; USB Emulation: Enable Legacy; Fn Key Emulation: Disabled; Fastboot: Thorough; Virtualization: Enable Intel Virtualization, Disable VT for Direct I/O, Disable Trusted Execution; Wireless Switch: Bluetooth and WLAN; Wireless Device Enable: Bluetooth and WLAN;   
      Versions of the software used in this installation are listed below the installation steps.  EFI and kexts for Catalina are attached to this first post in E6410-Catalina.zip.  CLOVER configuration is specified below the installation steps.  You MUST BE LOGGED-IN to download attachments from this forum.
       
      Wi-Fi connection to an Access Point is delayed when using AppleALC for sound.  Do not use Apple ALC.  Use VoodooHDA pkg 2.9.2 v15 for sound.
       
      Steps to install Catalina on a Dell Latitude E6410 (BIOS A17, NVidia 3100m)
       
      If you want to upgrade to 10.15.6, see instructions at this post.
       
      If you want to upgrade to 10.15.5, see instructions at this post.
       
      If you want to upgrade to 10.15.4, see instructions at this post.  
       
      Follow instructions below for 10.15.2 and 10.15.3.
       
      Make sure that your system matches my system description above (including BIOS version, Wi-Fi card, BIOS settings) If performing an upgrade from Mojave or a previous version of Catalina, backup your Mojave or Catalina partition! (Carbon Copy or similar) Download Catalina Installer Download DosDude Catalina Patcher Use DosDude Patcher to create Catalina USB Installer Delete LegacyUSBInjector.kext (we're using @RehabMan's USBInjectAll.kext with custom SSDT) and delete SIPManager.kext (CLOVER is managing SIP) from Catalina USB Installer's /Library/Extensions folder Copy all but the FakeSMC sensor kexts in E6410-Catalina.zip (attached) LE folder to the Catalina USB Installer /Library/Extensions (copy all kexts (including FakeSMC.kext) but not the FakeSMC sensor kexts) Install CLOVER Bootloader (Legacy) on USB Installer using the EFI in the E6410-Catalina.zip (attached).  Use the CLOVER configuration specified below.  Be sure to replace the XX-MASKED-XX parameters in the attached config.plist with your own values. Reset your Latitude E6410 NVRAM by doing the following (this may be important if you're making changes to your existing EFI and won't hurt anything if you're not making any changes) turn-off your laptop remove A/C power and main battery press and hold the power button for 30 seconds restore A/C power and battery Boot your Latitude E6410 from the Catalina USB Installer that you created in steps 5-8. Select "Reinstall macOS" (note that I have existing installations of Mojave and High Sierra on my Latitude E6410, so it's possible that this menu item changes to "Install macOS" if you don't have any previous macOS installations). Select your Catalina destination partition (which will be your Mojave or previous Catalina partition if you are upgrading) After the Catalina Installer reboots the first time, boot from the "macOS Installer" partition on the disk that you selected as your Catalina destination (not the macOS installer on the USB) After the Catalina Installer reboots the second time, boot the Catalina macOS Installer on the USB Select the Post Install Patcher utility Select only the following Post Install Patches (no other patches / options) Install Patch Updater Legacy Video After the Post Install Patcher reboots,  boot from the newly installed (or upgraded) Catalina partition and complete the macOS configuration Remove these kexts (if they exist) from /Library/Extensions: LegacyUSBInjector.kext, LegacyUSBVideoSupport.kext and SIPManager.kext If you are performing a fresh installation of Catalina: Install CLOVER (LEGACY - NOT UEFI) on your boot disk and configure EFI using files in the attached E6410-Catalina.zip.  Use the CLOVER configuration below.  Be sure to replace the XX-MASKED-XX parameters in the attached config.plist with your own values. Install all kexts in the attached E6410-Catalina.zip LE folder to your /Library/Extensions folder. Copy HWMonitor from the application folder in the attached E6410-Catalina.zip to your Applications folder. Install VoodooHDA (I installed using the Classic method) Skip to Step 21 If you are upgrading from a previous version of Catalina using the instructions from this thread or from Mojave that you installed using the instructions here: Replace 3rd-party kexts in EFI/Clover/kexts/Other with those in the attached EFI folder.   Replace EFI/Clover config.plist with the attached config.plist (Be sure to replace the XX-MASKED-XX parameters in the attached config.plist with your own values) Replace EFI/Clover/ACPI/patched with the files in the attached EFI/Clover/ACPI/patched Replace 3rd-party kexts in /Library/Extensions with those in the attached LE folder Remove VoodooSDHC.kext from /Library/Extensions Re-install VoodooHDA if necessary (I installed using the Classic method for Catalina) Ensure PROPER kext installation: If you're manually installing kexts in /Library/Extensions, make sure that you execute the following (in terminal) cd /Library/Extensions sudo chown -R root:wheel *.kext sudo chmod -R 755 *.kext sudo kextcache -i / After you execute 'sudo kextcache -i /' you should observe that ALL kexts are allowed.  If not, your kext directory attributes are probably incorrect.  Repeat kext installation and try again. Reboot from your new/upgraded Catalina partition Welcome to macOS Catalina! Change the keyboard type to ISO (System Preferences > Keyboard > Change Keyboard Type) Swap the Command and Option keys (System Preferences > Keyboard > Modifier Keys) Set hibernatemode: In terminal, execute sudo pmset -a hibernatemode 0 sudo rm -f /var/vm/sleepimage sudo touch /var/vm/sleepimage sudo chflags schg /var/vm/sleepimage

      Known Issues and Their Solutions
      (Not yet included in E6410-Catalina.zip archive attached to Post #1) There is a new version (2.0.7) of AirportBrcmFixup.kext here.  I hadn't noticed any issues with version 2.0.6, so this updated kext will be included in a future update to the E6410-Catalina.zip archive attached to this first post. (Solved - no further work required) Clover r5118 requires the config.plist key <key>NoDefaultProperties</key><false> to permit macOS to boot with Clover's "Inject Nvidia" = True.  See details here.  config.plist in the attached E6410-Catalina.zip archive includes this change. (Solved - no further work required) EFICheck is loaded.  Solution is to install EFICheckDisabler.kext which you can get here.  EFICheck.kext is included in the attached E6410-Catalina.zip archive. (Solved - no further work required) Some users experience display issues.  The solution is to remove Device (PNLF) from the DSDT.  Use the attached DSDT.  Removal of PNLF will disable sleep on lid closure.  Device (PNLF) can be added without modifying the DSDT by enabling the Clover PNLF ACPI patch.  The attached Clover config.plist enables the PNLF DSDT patch.  Disable the Clover PNLF patch if you experience display issues. (Solved - no further work required) USB sleep/wake power IORegistry keys are not injected (not included in Mojave's or Catalina's IOUSBHostFamily.kext).  Solution is to added SSDT-USBX.aml to EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/patched.  The attached SSDT-USBX.aml includes USB sleep/wake properties for MacBookPro6,2 from High Sierra 10.13.6 IOUSBHostFamily.kext. (No solution yet) Brightness slider does not work in System Preferences > Displays.  Brightness is easily controlled with Dell brightness keys.  There is some work on this later in this thread, but I will not be solving this as I'm content with the Dell brightness keys (and Ambient Light Sensor works to auto-adjust brightness). (No intention to solve) Display Settings in System Preferences are "garbled" when bright slider is visible.  This is a known issue with the legacy graphics patch and does not affect laptop operation. I continue to refine the DSDT and CLOVER config.plist to optimize my Latitude E6410 for multi-booting between various macOS versions (High Sierra, Mojave and Catalina at the time of this writing). If you upgrade your Latitude E6410 EFI using my attached EFI, you may find that your Latitude E6410 is stuck in a boot-loop that ends in a white screen and reboots.  Clear your system by doing the following: turn off your laptop, remove A/C power, remove the main battery, press and hold the power button for 30 seconds, restore A/C power and battery, boot normally.  I have only found this to be necessary (very rarely) after making an EFI change, but you may find it helpful if making kext changes in /Library/Extensions as well. (Solved - no further work required) Brcm firmware does not update when using BrcmFirmwareRepo.kext in /Library/Extensions.  Solution is to install BrcmFirmwareData.kext and BrcmPatchRAM3.kext in E/C/k/O with Clover "Inject Kexts" = YES. (Solved - no further work required) Laptop does not sleep when closing lid.  Solution appears to be a combination of adding Notify (LID0) code to Method (BTNV) and adding Device (PNLF) in the DSDT. I am using the same EFI for High Sierra 10.13.6, Mojave 10.14.6 and Catalina 10.15.3 and it works in all three macOSes. (No solution yet) No SD Card Slot (had to remove VoodooSDHC.kext) - I read somewhere that there is a solution that does not require any kexts (just a DSDT edit).  Haven't yet implemented this fix. (Not a problem that needs to be solved - leaving for historical purposes.  I am running Catalina without this.) - IOHWControl does not load under GFX0 (as observed in IORegistryExplorer).  Solution (if it needs to be solved) is to install AppleHWSensor.kext from a DosDude-patched Mojave /S/L/E in Catalina's /L/E.  Copy and install your own or use the kext attached to this post. (Solved - no further work required) Wi-Fi connection is delayed until a minute or so after boot - Use VoodooHDA and NOT AppleALC (Solved - no further work required) External USB ports do not work after waking from sleep (S3) - Upgrade Lilu.kext and replace BrcmFirmwareRepo.kext and BrcmPatchRAM2.kext (in /L/E) with latest BrcmBluetoothInjector.kext, BrcmFirmwareRepo.kext and BrcmPatchRAM3.kext. (Solved - no further work required) Boot and shut-down time of Catalina is slower than Mojave - Upgrade Lilu.kext and replace BrcmFirmwareRepo.kext and BrcmPatchRAM2.kext (in /L/E) with latest BrcmBluetoothInjector.kext, BrcmFirmwareRepo.kext and BrcmPatchRAM3.kext. (Solved - no further work required) Wi-Fi is not immediately available at OS startup - Upgrade Lilu.kext and replace BrcmFirmwareRepo.kext and BrcmPatchRAM2.kext (in /L/E) with latest BrcmBluetoothInjector.kext, BrcmFirmwareRepo.kext and BrcmPatchRAM3.kext. (Solved - no further work required) Laptop freezes on wake - Remove VoodooSDHC.kext from /Library/Extensions  
      Tips for Improved Performance (on this and other older systems)
      System Preferences > Spotlight > Search Results: Uncheck all options System Preferences > Spotlight > Privacy: Add all Volumes System Preferences > Accessibility > Display: Check "Reduce motion" System Preferences > Accessibility > Display: Check "Reduce transparency"  
      Other tips
      If your fan is always running and temps are good, try pressing Fn + z (I haven't noticed this issue for a while since I completed DSDT edits for Mojave, but keeping this here for historical purposes)  
      CLOVER Installation: Use these configuration options (These configuration options configure Clover for LEGACY BIOS - NOT UEFI)
      Install Clover in the ESP Boot Sectors Install boot0af in MBR Clover for BIOS (LEGACY - NOT UEFI) booting Clover EFI 64-bits SATA BIOS Drivers, 64-bit Recommended drivers FSInject File System drivers ApfsDriverLoader Install RC scripts on target volume Themes Choose your desired theme Install Clover Preference Pane After clicking "Continue", if prompted with "This Clover package is incompatible with this version of macOS," install anyway  
      After CLOVER installation is complete Copy the following from the attached E6410-Catalina.zip ACPI patched contents config.plist (change XX-MASKED-XX values to your own) kexts/Other (remove all other kext folders) Remove christmas and new year folders from themes (if present)

      Credits
      Thanks to those who contributed to my Mojave solution and to the DosDude team (for the incredible macOS patchers), I think this Catalina installation was the easiest macOS installation that I have experienced (so far).  Many thanks to @Slice and his team for the incredible work on CLOVER and for continuing to support old legacy systems like this.  Also, thanks to @Mieze and @headkaze and others I'm sure for maintaining the Brcm kexts.  And finally, I still prefer to manually apply patches to the DSDTs in my systems.  CLOVER offers extensive patching functionality, but I'm old-school and like to have an error-free, fully-patched DSDT with a simple CLOVER config.plist.  I think that this manual DSDT patching approach (which required an extensive review and debugging of the original unpatched DSDT in this thread) is the reason that this Latitude E6410 is such a perfect MacBookPro6,2.  Thank you @RehabMan for being a great teacher and for always insisting on problem reporting files .

      This is the way I patched my DSDT and SSDTs to get perfect sleep/wake and USB ports on my Skylark i7-6600u HD520 HP EliteBook 820 G3.
