question about nvidia optimus progression

Recommended Posts

Hi, i made an hackintosh a couple of yers ago with my old Acer 5742G (i3-380m, 4gb ram, gt540m +HD3000 with optimus, synaptic touchpad and i forgot wifi card producer).. 

i succeedwd to make it full working in any aspect except the video card. it wasn't possibile to toggle optimus in the bios (even in a modded one), so in the end i gave up.


Now i am about to buy a new machine (for work... at around 1000$ budget), still don't know what i will buy, but for sure any notebook with a dedicated gpu as the switching feature on the integrated one. 



I searched on google but i didn't find any really useful about this question: do we make progression in nvdia optimus compatibility, is there any possible solution (like shutting off the integrated card in the bios.. or anything else) or we are still at a wall talking about notebook hackintosh? 

of course i need to run my hackintosh on the dedicated vga. can't accept to use only integrated one since i need to use graphic and video editing software.

    • Oh, thank you but in the meantime I thought again and have installed High Sierra instead. It works just fine, put a camera, bluetooth, wifi, all working OK. I only have to solve a little problem when doing restart it freezes but after shutdown it comes up good! I have also Win7 on same mbr disk and I start with the installation usb but I think go over to EasyBCD to make a smoother boot. If your experienced I would appreciate very much any hints for helping me in this direction.

    • Hi, i am struggling with installation telling me that it needs less than one minute for eternity. in log it shows that "./postinstall: Using AMD Bronya Kernel" process is running, but 4 hours is too long for "Less than a minute" don't you think ;).    Please help me, i tried to install Mac OS on Intel and AMD processor PC, same problem.  
    • Hola, generalmente se postea en ingles.   Podrias dejar las especificaciones de tu tarjeta madre, por ejemplo: RAM PROCESADOR GPU ETC   Ademas de los componentes que tienes instalados... tengo una pregunta para ti.   Ya comprobaste la compatibilidad de tu ordenador con el sistema operativo?
