Inject Nvidia OpenCore

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I want to convert from clover to OpenCore but there is no OpenCore equivalent for the inject Nvidia option so when the boot process is finished I get a black screen. 

How can I create an SSDT for my gpu?

 

My specs:

Dell Optiplex 330 

cpu: xeon e3120

ram: 4GB DDR2

gpu: Msi gt 210 

 

I don't use any SSDT or DSDT

My ioreg file: Antonios’s iMac.ioreg

OC Config.plist: OC.zip

You are running Catalina (10.15).

I believe your GT 210 is not supported by Catalina.

I believe the highest macOS that supports GT 210 is High Sierra (10.13.6)

 

There are possible solutions  of patching Catalina AFTER EACH UPDATE with OLD drivers from previous macOS but this patch has to be applied with every update. Having said that, Catalina is nearly at the end of life and should not be any more updates except for Security Updates. Even with these updates, they may change the graphics drivers & framework and so you have to re-apply the patches.

 

Are you sure you have a fully working graphics card in Catalina (when you boot via Clover) ?

 

If you want to continue, then you have to install High Sierra and stay on that OS or upgrade your GPU.

I recently bought a used Zotac GT 730 (with the GK208 chip variant - very important) cheaply off eBay and was able to upgrade High Sierra to Catalina.

See here for more info.
