Switchable Graphics HD 3000/AMD HD 6630m


plasmastorm    0



I've got a Sony Vaio PCG-71613W pretty much up and running on 10.9.2 except for graphics accelleration.


It's a Sandy Bridge i5 with 6GB of RAM, I've replaced the wifi card with an Atheros AR5B95 (AR9285) to get that working and got VoodooBattery working too.


I have no DSDT installation or anything like that.


The only things left are:


Problem 1 - No Kext Loaded for the Intel HD 3000 Graphics or AMD HD 6630m. There is no option in the BIOS to change virtual memory size to match the RAM (or anything else for that matter - thanks Sony!), I have identified the machine as all the different MBPs and Minis to try and get it to recognise and load the kext but all i get is:

$ system_profiler SPDisplaysDataType


    Intel HD Graphics 3000 Mobile:

      Chipset Model: Intel HD Graphics 3000 Mobile
      Type: GPU
      Bus: Built-In
      VRAM (Total): 7 MB
      Vendor: Intel (0x8086)
      Device ID: 0x0116
      Revision ID: 0x0009
      Kernel Extension Info: No Kext Loaded
          Resolution: 1920 x 1080
          Pixel Depth: 32-Bit Color (ARGB8888)
          Main Display: Yes
          Mirror: Off
          Online: Yes


      Chipset Model: Unknown
      Type: GPU
      Bus: PCIe
      PCIe Lane Width: x16
      Vendor: ATI (0x1002)
      Device ID: 0x6741
      Revision ID: 0x0000

Problem 2  - It seems to crash back to the login screen when I try to access 'About This Mac', but this could be related to problem 1.


Any ideas where to go from here?

Just realised i'd missed out a load of info; i'm booting with GraphicsEnabler=No and IGPEnabler=Yes to try to enable the HD 3000, and the other way around for the AMD - no joy either way.

    • Hi guys, managed to make a hackintosh and everything is going great (Wifi, cpu ECT)   But it's pretty damn slow, i tried one of my favorite lightweight games to test (The Ultimate Doom) and it could barely run THAT! This is my first time and i have no idea how to get my 8570 to work.. Probably should have read a bit, eh? Lol.   And no I don't plan on using my hackintosh for gaming, but god so slow..   Thanks, help would be very appreciated. Edit: It's the dedicated version btw, and in about my mac I see "Graphics Display 3 MB" maybe the issue?  
    • Trying to boot to the installer but I get instant reboot after the following: I am using the following flag (I tried a variation - I need USBBusFix=Yes otherwise it fails even earlier): All my USB devices turn off just before it reboots, so I'm guessing it loses connection to the USB install media - but I can't work out why it's disabling all the USB's. My motherboard is an AsRock Killer Fatal1ty 990FX.
    • Saludos!   Tengo el mismo error (RAM a 667mhz), con una placa base ASUS (y mi cpu es el fx 6300).   Lograste solucionarlo?
    • Hi guys. Well, this is my second day of troubles, I touched everything, I installed max like 5 times in the same day, trying to figure out things and well. My Mac it display my graphic card on the #About this Mac tab With 2047MB ( So I guess all is right ) I installed the latest nvida drivers and on clover I activated the NvidaWeb. The problem is the resolution. Max resolution allowed is 1280 x 1024 and 800 x 600. I used to boot with nvd_drv 1 with nvd dry 0, I used to boot with all that things, and without them.  BUT No way to fix the resolution. Someone knows what-s going wrong and how can I fix it? Bdw im using iMac14,2 and OS X Sierra 10.12.3 Im connecting to the screen with DVI adapter. ( Maybe that causes the problem ) But it shows Im running 2047 MB so... idk why I can't change resolution. Thanks! ================================= SOLVED EDIT: Hi guys, in Display Resolution, I just set it in "Default for display" and after that pressing "THE WINDOWS BUTTON KEY, IN MY CASE, IDK WHAT KEY IS THAT IN MAC KEYBOARD, I THINK THE CONTROL ONE OR IDK" PRESSING that key I selected Scaled, and it appears more options and resolutions. There is a video on youtube about that called "Mac OS X Display Resolution" If someone has the same trouble.
