fGPUIdleIntervalMS = 0 -- Can't get HD3000 working on Acer Aspire

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, I'm new to using forums, and somewhat experienced with Hackintoshing. I have an Acer Aspire v5 571p 6698 touchscreen laptop, which has intel hd3000 graphics, intel core i3 2377m cpu, 8gb ram, 750 gb hd, - i don't really know much else about it, if you need other specs let me know. I have absolutely everything working on Mavericks 10.9.5, including the touchscreen, minus built in wifi and Hd3000 graphics acceleration. I'm not too worried about wifi right now, i have a usb adapter for now. Anyway, I've been trying everything i can think of to get the snbframebuffer to load, but I never can. I can boot without acceleration if I delete the snbfb kext (I don't have to delete anything else, actually). I have mbp8,1 smbios, and edited dsdt with rehabmans hd3k low res patch, rename gfx0 to igpu patch, and hd3000 on 7-series patch (i believe this laptop actually does have a 7-series mobo). I managed to get rid of the "agpm controller unknown platform error" with the smbios and rename to igpu patch, but I still can't boot with snbfb. Now I either get "SNB Framebuffer did not show up, unload" error as I would get before, or the verbose boot stops at "fGPUIdleIntervalMS = 0" and doesn't show anything past that, and does not show the snbfb load error. If i delete the snbfb kext and boot verbose, the "fgpuidle..." still shows, but more log entries show after that, such as osxfuse starting, and the snbfb load error (obviously because it doesn't exist, in this case i deleted it). So I'm wondering if when the snb kext is in place, and the verbose boot stops at fgpuidle... , more is happening after that that i'm not seeing, possibly the snbfb load error. the problem is, I dont know if that error is there or not because it does not show anything past fgpu idle... , along with whatever else normally shows after that. if i wait about 30 seconds after the verbose gets stuck there, i can control the volume from the keyboard and hear the volume level beeps as if its booted up, just the screen is stuck on the verbose screen. I am begging for help, either help with possible boot flags, other dsdt edits, kext patches, and what "fGPUIdleIntervalMS = 0" means, and whether or not it is something I should be worrying about.


Also, as a sidenote, Considering this model laptop is only $500, has a touchscreen that is compatible with mac, and everything is working with mac, I was hoping we can raise some awareness of the existence of this laptop in the hackintosh community, and possibly get it an app like the probook installer to help with these edits and patches I have to do to get graphics working. In other words, with the hackintosh community's help getting this last feature working on this laptop, if it does end up working, I would like to have it gain some recognition in the community as one of the most hackintoshable laptops out there, like the probook. It is much less chunky than a probook, has a working touchscreen, is cheap, and hopefully can be just as easy to hackintosh as a probook with the help of the hackintosh community to get the garphics working, and then make an app for it like the probook installer (or at least a really easy to use guide).


Thank you guys so so much in advance for any insight you can give me.

    • Hello. I just installed hackintosh high sierra on my PC. It's version is 10.13 so is there any way I can update to 10.13.3? And also my hackintosh freezes when opening few applications like logic pro x. Please help me.
    • Same problem here. Did you solve this?
    • I was having an issue with installing High Sierra because I was getting this error OsxAptioFix2Drv: starting overrides for /System\Library\CoreServices\boot.efi
      using reloc block: no, hibernate wake: no I tried all the fixes that everyone was telling me about replacing the file with a different one but nothing worked. Finally I came across a post from some person who had a laptop that was designed like mine. I have the Aspire A515-51. The weird thing is that it has 8gb of ram installed. There is 4gb that is soldered to the motherboard and one 4gb ram in the only ram slot. Well this person stated that if he removed the 4gb ram that was installed in the ram slot the install would move past the error and install. I tried it and WOW it worked. I was able to complete the install and everything worked just fine but the wifi. So I hope this helps someone, but I am also hoping that someone can help me with the issue of the ram. I can't add the ram back into the ram slot or the boot will stall at  OsxAptioFix2Drv: starting overrides for /System\Library\CoreServices\boot.efi
      using reloc block: no, hibernate wake: no
