Hi!

 

I have an i7 Ivy Bridge PC desktop that obviously came with the HD4000 GPU.

 

I work with 3D, so I got a GT430 to help, it's not an AWESOME GPU, but it is a lot faster. Ok.

 

 

Then obviously I use the Geforce output, and I had to delete the HD4000 kexts to boot properly with QE/CI. If I dont do this, my hackintosh tries to boot with the HD4000, and since it does not have any monitor attached, it wont work.

 

So I thought about using the HD4000 output and try to use the performance of the GT430 just like in the real Macs. Real macs use the HD4000 GPU nativetely, and if the computer needs graphic performance, it switches automatically to the Geforce.

 

Is there a way to this work in hackintosh?

No possibility  switching. Just turn of the HD4000 in bios. You can also try Chameleon or Enoch bootloader. They have the options to bypass the intelgfx.

 

Have fun.

Not at the moment. Switching in Windows is implemented by Nvidia/Intel. Switching in OS X is designed and implemented by Apple. Apple use different approach to switch the cards. Hence a mixture of PC hardware with OS X doesn't play well.
