Is Open Core permanent?
If I do NVRAM reset will it continue to boot?

I'm have a backup/spare cMP 2010 5,1 and need some clarification.

will it operate fine with a GTX260 which has not been flashed?
will it boot from pci based SSD?

If I pull the drives out of the machine wil this

Why not ask this in the OpenCore thread? You should have better chance to get good answers in there.

It depends on your config. e.g. the RequestBootVarRouting can allow your "boot via OpenCore" survive after NVRAM reset.

Please find the answer in the OpenCore thread. It's there.

OpenCore itself is very GPU independent. Just the boot screen part required the graphic card that has GOP in the ROM.
