Distorted graphics Yosemite 10.10.0


Hi there,


I have been attempting to get a working Yosemite zone on my laptop.


It is a Metabox (Clevo) P150EM.


As you can see the attached image shows a distorted and stretched screen. Changing resolutions does not resolve this either.


Computer Specs:

Intel Core i7 3610QM @ 2.3GHz

16GB DDR3 1600MHz Ram

AMD Radeon 7970m (I know this will not work in OS X)

Intel HD 4000

750GB 7200RPM Secondary HDD



When the screen is distorted like this, I get the best performance with the Intel HD 4000.. When i try different bootflags (0x1660004 etc) the intel HD only shows 3 - 7mb of video ram.


When i try and install the Intel Capri drivers from this website, OS X will not boot (hangs at Bluetooth)


Does anyone know what is going on? If so please help!

Hi Niresh,


Thank you for this awesome Distro!


I am using 10.10.1.. I have seemed to have fixed the distorted screen (had to add device id properties to my boot plist and install this driver: http://www.hackintoshosx.com/file/4458-intel-hd-3000-4000-video-smooth-10101/


However i cannot get QE/CI to run, i am getting horrible flickering in Google Chrome when i move the mouse or type. 


I cannot get the DVD player to work either.


Can you please help me get QE/CI running so i can finally ditch windows!


I have attached 2 screenshots and below is my plist.

    • Hi, i tried to install high sierra on my hp computer, i created the partition on windows, i copied the sata-100-unssuported.kext to /EFI/CLOVER/kexts/Other but my intel SSD does not show up at the disk utility at all, my bios does not have options to change sata to ahci or any other option, and i read something about mbr patch which i dowloaded but there is no guide on what to do with it, any help would be really appreciated. Thanks
    • i tried this in last hours, but nothing. i tried to boot on an acer aspire (specs are almost the same) and it boots (stuck on logo but boot), i guess that problem is mine laptop?
    • Hi!
      As a first try with hackintosh I succesuffy installed High Sierra on a Dell PowerEdge T20. It works fine, but as I start scrolling in a web-browser the screen starts flickering. It only recognises my screen as a secondary projector, and can't change resolution from 1920x1080.
      How do I fix this?
    • I've downloaded the nvidia webdrivers but obviously nv_disable=1 disables them. I've tried booting with nv_drv=1 among other boot flags and the boot always hangs at the bluetoothhci starts completes line. Gfx is gfx 750ti cpu is amd phenom ii x4 965 deneb black edition. Motherboard is m4a88t -v evo/usb3 Couldn't edit to add this info, I installed using niresh mav 10.9 using boot flags dart=0 npci=0×2000 and nv_disable=1 as well as /amd64. I've successfully update to 10.9.5
    • To me it sounds as if he/she installed MacOS on their PC without understanding what they are doing, since they are asking to return to Windows 10.   My thought was, to allow them to start over with the installation, but with help from the thread.
