Unable to change resolution for Intel HD 2500 in Yosemite

Recommended Posts


I have just installed Yosemite 10.10.1 Niresh following his guide available here.

Now everything is working fine except for the graphics card GPU is only showing a resolution of 1024x768 whereas I have a monitor which supports 1440x900

Here are my system details:

  1. Processor: Intel(R) Pentium(R) CPU G2030 @ 3.00GHz
  2. GPU: Intel HD Graphics 2500 [8086:0152] (rev 09)

Here is what my system information says about the Graphics Card:

Type:    GPU

  Bus:    Built-In

  VRAM (Total):    5 MB

  VRAM (Dynamic, Max):    10

  Vendor:    Intel (0x8086)

  Device ID:    0x0152

  Revision ID:    0x0009

  Kernel Extension Info:    No Kext Loaded



  Resolution:    1280 x 1024

  Pixel Depth:    32-Bit Color (ARGB8888)

  Main Display:    Yes

  Mirror:    Off

  Online:    Yes


Now my question is that is there a way to increase the resolution in Yosemite or any other version of Hackintosh.

I am also seeing that the screen is a bit laggy and choppy. I have tried many things but have not been able to fix this issue.

Also note that my Screen is connected to the CPU via a VGA cable as my screen does not have a HDMI port and the only port is VGA available.

I would request some of you experts to guide me in resolving this issue, even if it means that I need to change the OS X version.

I have also read that HD 2500 is not supported but I have seen on other forums that some users are having higher screen resolutions on the same GPU, is it because of the VGA connection.

    • 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.
