How to Enable the IGFX for macOS Mojave in Hackintosh

If your IGFX is Metal Supported (HD 4000 and up) you can enjoy the simplicity of enabling it in macOS Mojave without the need to remove the NVIDIA card from the motherboard. This applies mostly to Hackintoshes. Tried in Intel HD 630. Always backup your system before doing anything like this.

  1. Press Del or F12 to boot to BIOS upon startup. 
  2. Navigate to Peripherals.
  3. At Initial Display Output, change to IGFX.
  4. Navigate to Chipset.
  5. At Internal Graphics, set it to Auto.
  6. Save and reboot. Turn off your computer, and disconnect the HDMI or DisplayPort cable from the Nvidia card and connect it to the motherboard instead.
  7. Turn on your computer and boot to macOS.
  8. Now it should work as expected, alongside the Nvidia drivers (without acceleration) as well.
If it doesn't work check the below:
  • Is your IGPU Metal Supported? It should be HD4000 and up. Old IGPUs like HD3000 will not work out of the box.
  • Do you need WhateverGreen + Lilu or Emulated VRAM to make it work? It's yes to all 3 for my motherboard, so check those kexts before continuing.
  • Are you using the latest Clover Configurator?

New Page template button with timestamp in the title - Notion

These days I'm all about discovering ways for people to use Notion  without  the use of databases, as databases slow things down. I'm also an advocate for minimalism while still having an efficient workflow. Today I'm giving a tip with an example of daily journal entries. Usually, a Notion template comes with a database for journal pages, with a "Date created" property which is mighty convenient. But you can also replicate that without a database.  This will make it super fast for you to start journaling on a new page with the current date and time already added to the title. Create a simple text page where all your journal entries will be stored (no databases/tables). Optional: You may create a subpage to serve as an Archive for past entries. Again this should be a simple text page, not a database. You may also have multiple archives, named after the 12 months or years to keep things more organized. Type / , then template , then select the Template button . Give
