10.9 Graphics Issue
1 1

Question

After about 2x10 hours  battling  i finally get  Maverick 10.9  working on my   Acer Aspire E1-471G 

 

But problems still exist.  Graphic problem is the major one.  

.

 

screen flickers  in launchpad and safari,  and keep asking me to download flash,  but when i get into adobe flash website, it just keeps

 

reloading by itself.   

 

 

i have a intel hd 4000 card and a discrete card: GeForce GT 630M

 

roughly my boot setting : nothing to mention but   maybe    GraphicsEnabler = No by default.

 

if i set it "on", "128M for intel hd is not supported, you need to change it to 64 or blah blah..." will appear  when mac booting

 

 

i think system didnt recognize my graphic card(s) due to driver issue 

 

So, firstly, in mac system info it shows 

mac_1.jpg

mac_2.jpg

 

 

i'd great appreciate if you could help me   :)

thank you 

 

btw  my graphic cards' info  is in the attachment files.  sorry for the trouble,  i wish i could just put it here.

 

thanks again

kepler card won't work along with IGPU cards so try to enable intelhd4000 read this http://www.hackintosh.zone/page/_/articles/intel-hd4000-and-haswell-igpu-r12

    thanks for your reply  buddy :)

just a quick question

 

in my BIOS  there is a tag for graphic card that has  2 option :  switchable  and integrated.

 

i tried to do some research, couldnt find similar bios option as mine.

Which one do you think i should choose?

 

thank you

So, after messing around i little bit.

this is what i did:

1.  added to chameleon boot.plist

<key>InjectIntel-ig</key>
<string>01006601</string>
<key>IntelCapriFB</key>
<string>1</string>
 
2. Change my graphics setting   in BIOS from switchable to intergraded 
 
3. added in boot plist
<key>device-properties</key> <string>5e0000000100000001000000520000000100000002010c00d041030a000000000101060000027fff04002c0000004100410050004c002c00690067002d0070006c006100740066006f0072006d002d006900640000000800000003006601</string>
 
this is what i get:
it seems like system recognized my intel hd4000 
in system info it says

Graphics  Intel HD Graphics 4000 1024 MB

 

however, i still get flickers when i drag windows or Launchpad.

just a quick update and keep the experiment

 

current plist:

<key>Kernel Flags</key>
<key>GraphicsEnabler</key>
<string>Yes</string>
<key>PciRoot<key>
<string>1</string>
<key>InjectIntel-ig</key>
<string>0b006601</string>
<key>IntelCapriFB</key>
<string>11</string>
<string>npci=0x2000 dart=0</string>
<key>Timeout</key>
<string>2</string>
<key>device-properties</key> <string>5e0000000100000001000000520000000100000002010c00d041030a000000000101060000027fff04002c0000004100410050004c002c00690067002d0070006c006100740066006f0072006d002d006900640000000800000003006601</string>
 
BIOS setting: Switchable
 
result:
System detect Inter HD 4000 correctly.

Graphics  Intel HD Graphics 4000 1024 MB

(detect GeForce as well but with 0 VRam)
 
issue:
1.flickering still exists.
2.when booting boot loader  throw an error :   "error occur when booting, pause for 5 sec" 
can boot in to system however
(i think this error is :
i remember when i used other boot loader,   if i  set  graphics enabler = yes    
it gave me an error said that i have to set my vram in bios to 64m 32m and .....  
mine was 128m in bios
)
 
next:
gonna try to change back to intergraded in bios

if you going to reinstall then this time while installing select backup graphics/move graphics all ati * and nvidia* (don't select intel)

<key>InjectIntel-ig</key>
<string>0b006601</string>
<key>IntelCapriFB</key>
<string>11</string>
try to change 1 to 11 confirms which suites you best

ok i just finished a fresh install. 

 

found something new.,

 

1. regular booting stuck after  "blue tooth missing transport "(something like that)

 

can boot in safe mood with -x.

 

2. when i get into safe mood,   i found out that   in  system info.   intel hd 4000 is detected  as well as     Acer GeForce 630M .(it used to be  nvidia chipset  or just nothing)

 

I'm trying to do the inject intel thing.
