Update 3 :
i asked in the hackintosh reddit groupe and someone told me to 


you could try manually injecting some properties to bypass the initialization in rmStart like this: https://ghostbin.com/paste/zfs79 (adjust ACPI paths as needed)


NVDA::rmStart is a function in NVDAResmanWeb

i have the acpi paths for my nvidia gpu but i dont  know where to  change the code in rmStart
