Changed res - Dell Latitude E 5540 (no video)

I've been messing with a Dell Latitude E 5540. I finally got the keyboard and trackpad more stable. But to make tinkering easier I decreased the resolution from 1900x1080 to the next lowest one (1600x something directly from System Preferences - - > Display). Now when I boot right from the hard drive it loads in verbose mode but eventually goes to a screen where I see some quick horizontal lines and no video.

If I reboot and choose Reset NVRAM, that works for trackpad issues, but does nothing for video. At least with Clover you could add temporary flags to test stuff and get In to MacOS with temp settings.

Is there a way to do something similar with OpenCore at the boot menu? Do I need to hook up an external monitor to change the settings? Is it essential to have a second hard drive with Windows on it to make the changes in ProperTree when stuff like this happens?

Thank you.

No option for "Hey Siri"?

Running Catalina 10.15.7 with clover 5103.

Siri works and does everything, but the option for "Hey Siri" is completely missing.

Could this be something to do with my SMBIOS? I'm not too sure...

Any ideas on how I can get the option back?

Unibeast takes forever


I am working on a hackintosh using unibeast.

I started the unibeast progress yesterday and its still on installing clover bootloader. Is it supposed to take so long or is there something wrong? The clock that the apple is holding is still turning.

How to disable updates permanently in Catalina?

Ive upgraded my XPS 15 7590 to Big Sur, and the battery drains a little bit more than I like, and want to downgrade back to Catalina, but how do I permanently disable updates like one would on iOS by using AppleTV profile, as in what could I do to block updates and permanently shut off notifications?
