10.9 Graphics Issue

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 https://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

just a quick update

chrome doesn't need much hardwares acceralation that's why you are able to watch videos ,,,

 

try to change frame buffer capri in .plist from 1 to 11 which suites you better

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

    • Hi guys, I installed the Hackintosh Sierra Zone image and most things work except my graphics. It detects as AMD R9 290X when I use FakeID 0x67B01002 on boot, however I only get 7MB of VRAM with no QE. My screen also tears as well. Hope someone can help me - Intel Core i5 2500K - AMD R9 290X 4GB - ASUS P8Z77-V LX
    • Hey guys, I'm looking into dual booting OSX Sierra or High Sierra on my ASUS Zenbook Pro UX501V. I use a lot of mac only software like sketch at uni and it would make my life a lot easier to just be able to boot into it instead of going to campus to use one of their Mac's. I'm currently running windows 10 and would prefer to not have to lose all my files or reinstall windows 10, however if this is unavoidable I would consider it. Specs are Processor    Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-6700HQ CPU @ 2.60GHz, 2592 Mhz, 4 Core(s), 8 Logical Processor(s)
      GPU    NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960m 4gb DDR5
      RAM    12GB DDR4
      BIOS Version/Date    American Megatrends Inc. N501VW.300, 9/05/2016
      BIOS Mode    UEFI Does anyone know of any guides? Or has done this before? Even a link to point me on my way. Looked into the clover bootloader and I'm under the impression that's the route I'll have to take. Thanks for any help you may have      
    • Hi everyone. Here are my specs MOBO :Gigabyte Z68 XP UD3 (1155) GPU : HD 6870 1gb CPU Intel i7 2600k (1155) 60gb SATA SSD   MOBO is using legacy Bios. This machine has served me well for years. I tripped a circuit breaker a few weeks ago and now it's stuck in a boot loop. I have setup a new bootable USB to reinstall but for some reason the boot loop is happening when I startup from this as well. I can manage to get to the desktop using the safe mode boot flag (-x) but after a few moments, the desktop freezes and the computer reboots. I used the 10.10.1 disc image to create the new USB stick I am not sure if this could be causing the boot problem in the USB. Should I have used the 10.10.0? At first I suspected a hardware issue but I left the computer on for two days at in the bios screen and it stayed on just fine. Hoping someone can give me a hand figuring out which boot flags can get me going again or how I can reinstall the OS. I really need to get past the freeze/reboot cycle I am in. I am almost ready to nuke this thing and install windows
