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

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.

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
