Nvidia GT430 HDMI only 1080i, no sound

Recommended Posts

OK, where to start... Well I am extremely appreciative for the Niresh team coming together and making a simple solution to installing OS X on my new "hackintosh" computer. I was pleased that everything is working, aside from a few loose ends. So, I have an HP computer (a6542p) Pavilion model with an Nvidia GT 430 graphics card. Strangely when booting the computer I am in 1080p, even when the Mac symbol comes up. As soon as I am loaded up to the login screen it is scaled down to 1080i (I know I am basically nitpicking), when I play movies in 1080p format it really shows. I know its not a big deal but it would be nice to understand how to load the drivers for my graphics card (strangely enough, I think it is supported by Macs; I could be wrong though) I would also like to understand how to get sound from the graphics card as Windows could (I know they have actual drivers to help from the manufacturer) . I had a MacBook Pro with the Thunderbolt package, I was able to plug in an HDMI adapter to it where I got sound from the TV and 1080p, so I would think it could be possible. I may be wrong because they are two very different ways of connecting. Any help on this topic is a step forward for me because I have previously downloaded the CUDA drivers for Mac and the kext package for the GT 430 with no success. 

 

Other than that guys, this thing worked like a charm right out of the box. Currently I am dual booting with Windows 8.1; but since I installed OS X I have not logged in to Windows (so boring). 

 

Regards,

@patpoland2004 Getting HDMI Audio to work in OSX is really a major challenge. 

You could try the Inject HDMI Audio option in Chameleon. I heard it works for some people.

If that doesn't work, the only definitive solution is to patch your DSDT which is quite hard.

@Devonic, Thank you very much for the timely response, I have not tried; couldn't imagine it would hurt. Is there a way I can do this without re-installing? I see a lot of posts about a dashboard of some sort that can control the boot loader, I have yet to find it as it is not present in my preferences.

@Mention Thanks again man, that is exactly what I was referring to. One last question, 1080p.. is it possible for the GT430? I know the MacBook Pro's came with a GT 430 M which I know is different, but I previously owned a MBP and definately had 1080p as an option. 

 

Many thanks, 

-Patrick

@patpoland2004 If i helped you just like my posts ;)

Depends on your monitor, if your laptop's screen supports a 1920 x 1080 resolution then you're good to go. If the option doesn't seem to be available in Display preferences you have to inject your EDID (preferably using the Clover Bootloader)

Download Kext Utility.

Simply Drag and Drop the kexts (select all of them) into the kext utility window, provide your admin password and it will install them.

    • I booted from the USB, selected "Yosemite zone", but this brings me back to the original problem. It is freezing on the hackintosh logo. Is there any way to solve this.
    • Well, the pkg is beginning to install High Sierra on my SSD, but then stops with the error code "could not be installed on this computer" 
    • I followed your tutorials which seems to be 1000% easy as its usually around the same as TonyMac, except your installs requires less to do and youve done most of the work too the package which makes it installing for us very easy. Now, the pic below shows a whole bunch of errors and I dont know why. Ive searched these forums and just like the title here, there is none which is odd, because from your tutorials, this shouldnt happen and it seems no one else is running into this problem, HOWEVER, if they did post something like this, Im 1, looking for the fix on high sierra, not sierra or tammy or roger or lutherin, 2 they need to check their titles again because its not helping anyone. I will say I did try installing Sierra Hackintish Zone version and it works all the way up to right after it installs, it tells me "it cannot be installed on this computer", SO....sigh, idk       So, to conclude, I do appreciate the devs here and much respect. Thanks for doing this. But guys, please help a bruh out and tell me how to fix this. Im using windows 10 as my main so do not tell me to go to do nothing on a mac, its the whole point of me coming here is to hackintosh. I do follow instructions fairly           well consider I teach Programming to the Military. My god bless this post and.....my soul too tbh <3       
    • Hello, I want to know what I have to do to install Kexts, use clover configurator, install bootloader, change resolution and how to use multibeast according to my hardware. I'm new to this mac configuration process. For now my hackintosh is pure, with no driver installed wifi, ethernet, graphics etc .. Sometimes when I start hackinstosh gives the Kernel Panic and stops loading on the apple screen, but I reboot and load normally. And also after a few minutes using the macOS it freezes the screen. I used the Hackintosh Zone Niresh Sierra because it was the only one that successfully installed on my notebook. My hardware is: Notebook Samsung Expert x23 Intel HD Graphics 5500 I5-5200U Processor Nvidia Geforce 910M 2GB 8 GB RAM HDD 1TB Bluetooth
