Thanks Squishy for the info… good to see I had been doing it all in the same order. Meanwhile, I guess I need to simply get a working dedicated 10.13.x booting volume working flawlessly (ding! check!), and then remove that HD and install a freshie and install Windoze 8.1.x onto it, and then install both HDs and then sort out the boot order in BIOS. Should be a piece of cake (with extra vegan-friendly frosting) after that, yes?

As for VenerialT-d, I don’t see any entries in BIOS for that… is there some other place I ought to be looking for it?

Thanks. And good to know that there are still a few patient people in the world left.

VT-d is found in F12 (BIOS startup) > Chipset > VT-d

Set it to Disabled.

Info is on page 33 of your motherboard's manual.

I remember seeing all of those recommendations in the tonymacx86 High Sierra installation guide, and I tried to the best of my ability to abide by them. So far (knock on wood, surely this piece of shit will die from component failure within 2 years) it’s running flawlessly. Thanks again for all your help. I think that the key here with Hackintoshes (and Windoze PCs in general) is to plan on completely rebuilding them every two years before the components completely fail.
