How To Set Nvidia Card As Default Instead Of Hd3000 ? Help


Someone please advise me how to set Nvidia Geforce 520m as the default and only Graphics card? I would like to replace the Intel Intel HD3000 with Nvidia 520m. I went through a couple's topic but I could not find anything. I tried to install KEXT (this) but still nothing. I think that you need to set some Nvidia graphics card ID, which would be fed. I really do not know. Does anyone have any experience with this?


Notebook specs:

  • [*]Processor: Intel Core i3 2310M (2,1 GHz) [*]Chipset: Intel HM55 [*]RAM: 4 GB DDR3 1066 MHz [*]Graphics Card: Intel HD3000 and NVIDIA GeForce GT520M (1024 MB)


Mac os X install (Drivers and config):

 Nvidia graphics card ID (one of the methods)

0x104010de&0xffc0ffff1040 = "NVIDIA GeForce GT 520"1050 = "NVIDIA GeForce GT 520M "1056 = "NVIDIA NVS 4200M"1057 = "NVIDIA NVS 4200M "

No, this is Optimus, the Nvidia will never work in OSX, only your HD3000 will work, you must deactivate the  Nvidia in Bios , then your HD3000 will work.

    • Hey!  I successfully installed macOS Sierra with the Version SierraAMD v3 on my AMD Pc.  But after setting up the PostInstall via Terminal, the OS stops booting at this line : ioconsoleusers: gioscreenlockstate 3, hs 0, bs 0, now 0, sm 0x0 Any solutions?    My System Specs: Mainboard: Asrock 970 Pro3 r2.0 Processor: AMD FX-6300 Graphics: Sapphire Radeon RX460 4GB   Thanks!
    • Ok, so I built a new hackintosh with Niresh Mavericks 10.9.0 on a modified Dell Precision T7400 and mostly everything seems to be working correctly except for two things: Sound (The obvious one), and Online video content (Youtube, Facebook videos, etc) play at lower than 1 fps, frozen speed, after 10 seconds of playback it reaches 4 seconds of elapsed time and I have found no other forums explaining this or talking about this so I decided to bring it up here. As for the sound situation, I already bought a new card to replace the X-FI, so yes, I am aware of the Sound Blaster Audigy X-FI Xtreme Audio not being supported, but what caught my attention is that the sound was working and video playback problem was gone temporarily, I happened to hear the sound from my headphones sitting on my desk and put them on, and sound. I decided to test a video on youtube, the problem with the videos, gone. But after a reboot, they were back. However I have the logs from today and can give them to whoever wants/needs them to figure out what may have caused the sound to kick in on the X-FI and maybe add support for this sound card. I copied as far back in the time that the system was on while sound was working that I could up to the shutdown event. I know it's pretty large but I am not sure where to look, I am simply handing this out to whoever wants to see what may have given me audio on this card for the session. From what I can see that looked to be the most closely related to my issue is something to do with bluetooth (I don't have bluetooth, btw), it says in console: "9/20/17 6:49:55.785 PM[200]: The plug-in named BluetoothAudioPlugIn.driver requires extending the sandbox for the mach service named" repeatedly many times. This could be completely unrelated.   The only recent actions I made that I personally can think of that may have triggered this would be: I installed several different versions of a music player through Winebottler and it failed to start, more and likely because of the lack of .net framework 2.0 and 4.0, this is my highest suspicion of being the likeliest cause, but I could be wrong. I installed Crossover and installed the music player in it, which it ran in and is where I discovered that you need .net 2.0 and 4.0 (It had the player in it's database and installed .net automatically) Ran Discord (It uses output/input, so may as well add that in) The player was MusicBee, and when it crashed, it also left a log that I could probably try to reproduce if needed.   Specs: Dell Precision T7400, 1x Intel Xeon x5482 Nvidia Geforce GTX 660 16GB ddr2 ram 667mhz (Tested to be working correctly, please don't ask me to run a mem test I am impatient enough as it is)
