Turing-generation nVidia GeForce GTX 1650 Ti is unsupported and must disabled.

You can only run macOS with the UHD630 of this 10th gen Comet Lake platform.

Please specify bootloader used (OpenCore vs. Clover) and post a zipped copy of your EFI folder.

If using OpenCore, don't hesitate to follow the relevant guidance.

I used "-wegnoegpu" and removed the "-igfxvesa" arg from boot-arg and I got a kernel panic - backtrace showed problem with AppleSMC and VirtualSMC.

I also tried both methods from this guide (https://dortania.github.io/Getting-Started-With-ACPI/Laptops/laptop-disable.html) and with both the GPU is disabled (does not show in Hackintool), but during boot the fans kick into high gear and stay in high gear until I shut down the laptop. With both methods I can only boot with "-igfxvesa" flag, otherwise it gets stuck - no kernel panic, but stuck at boot.

At this point I guess I have to patch my video (iGPU) before trying to use "-wegnoegpu" boot arg to disable the dGPU and remove "-igfxvesa" arg, correct?

How do I make a patch for my video:

- CPU Intel® Core™ i7-10750H

- iGPU - Intel® UHD Graphics for 10th Gen Intel® Processors (Device ID 0x9BC4)
