Hello all! I know this has been asked a lot of times in different forums, and it really feels wrong to post about it again, but I tried every solution I could find to no use.
 
First, my relevant hardware specs:
 
MOBO: ASUS Gryphon Z87
CPU: Haswell i5-4670k
Graphics: Intel HD 4600 (Integrated CPU)
 
Some history
 
Where do I start? Let me see, I installed OS X 10.9.2 using myHack, the installation was smooth and fast, after installation I saw that booting from disk was not working, the system would just boot into UEFI GUI, so I used the chameleon boot loader already loaded in the pen drive I used for the initial installation.
 
The system has some problems booting without some tweaking (as usual with Intel HD Graphics 4600). The systems almost always get stuck in the Bluetooth Controller line, I read that when this happens is because the OS cannot load the Graphics driver. It is also worth noting that I'm using an HDMI cable from my PC to a VIZIO LED-TV.
 
What I tried?
 
Booting arguments
-v        Most important argument
-x        System boots without problem
GraphicsEnabler=No IntelAzulFB=0-15        Not a single one works consistently, sometimes a number works (3, 6 or 9) but when they do, they boot into safe mode without even using the -x flag, so the system 'works', it detects the HD 4600 but only with 7mb of VRAM
 
System definitions
iMac 14.2
MacMini 6.1        causes kernel panic in numbers 10 and 13
 
What I have configured in my UEFI settings?
 
Secure both: Other OS (disabled in other words)
Primary display: iGPU
iGPU Memory: 64MB
VT-d: Disabled
 
What now?
 
I'll try to use all the IntelAzulFB numbers again, using a new system definition. I hope you can help me find a solution. Maybe the IntelAppleFrambufferAzul.kext is corrupted or something? I don't know.
 
Best regards.
 
Update

Also I post my org.chameleon.Boot.plist

Boot with -v dart=0 GraphicsEnabler=Yes

 

Check if in System/Library/Extensions you have AppleIntelHD ** kexts

I tried those args and the system gets stuck in the same place ([IOBluetoothHCIController][start])

Also, I do have all those kext, moving them to a backup folder makes the system boot in generic VESA mode.

 

Best regards.

Which bootloader you have installed and which version number is?
Start with DropDMAR=Yes

I'm using Chameleon svn2266 (the one that is installed with myHack 3.3, I'm using the USB to boot).

 

P.S. That argument doesn't work either, you think I should try to inject my Intel HD 4600 through DSDT? The problem is that I know nothing about how to do it.

I tried, but Chameleon doesn't seem to boot from my SSD, only clover does. I still think Chameleon is easier to test on, so that's why I'm using the USB, once I can fix the problem with Chameleon I can try with Clover.

 

Best regards.

I couldn't get my HD4600 to play along until i updated the chameleon on the pen drive that was the only way i could boot at the time, since then i could run 10.9.1 with this:

 

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com...yList-1.0.dtd">
<plist version="1.0">
<dict>
<key>EthernetBuiltIn</key>
<string>Yes</string>
<key>Graphics Mode</key>
<string>1920x1080x32</string>
<key>GraphicsEnabler</key>
<string>Yes</string>
<key>IGPEnabler</key>
<string>Yes</string>
<key>IntelAzulFB</key>
<string>10</string>
<key>Kernel</key>
<string>mach_kernel</string>
<key>SMBIOSdefaults</key>
<string>Yes</string>
<key>Timeout</key>
<string>2</string>
<key>UseKernelCache</key>
<string>Yes</string>
</dict>
</plist>
 
Boot with -x, run chameleon wizard, on download pick a newer version, choose to install on the pen drive if that is still the only thing that boots for you.
Verify the new version and try to boot it.
(IGPEnabler and GraphicsEnabler i thought were one or the other, it wouldn't use acceleration until i had it like this plist i pasted)
 
HTH
 
Side note, this is a Mac Pro 3,1 here.
 
Side note2: I came here actually looking for why what worked in 10.9.1 leaves me some gfx memory trash all over since 10.9.2

Thanks guys, I ended up installing Windows. Will wait until I get a replacement for my nVidia card, hopefully OS X will be easier to set up with it.

 

Best regards.

 

P.S. I tried the suggestions of the last post, updating chameleon and using the same org.chameleon.Boot.plist, but it didn't work, maybe is just an issue with 10.9.2

I ran into the exact same problem you describe trying to get the HD 4600 to work in Mac OSX 10.9.2. Whereas it worked fine in 10.9.1 under both Clover and Chameleon, no special tweaks required.

 

I've spent the last few days fighting with it, trying everything under the sun—DSDT edits, framebuffer patches, updating to 10.9.3 beta, etc.

 

It just absolutely does not work and I'm surprised more people haven't raised this issue (probably because most people don't rely on IGPUs I'm guessing lol).

Possible solution:

 

Just tried swapping out /System/Library/Extensions/AppleIntelFramebufferAzul.kext for the version from 10.9.1, and the HD 4600 IGPU now appears to be fully operational.

Hi guys I have same problem.

 

Computer has following HW:

MSI H81M-P33
Intel Core i3 4330 with Intel HD Graphics 4600
ZEPPELIN 4GB DDR3 1600MHz GOLD

 

Before installation and after installation I had to go this:

boot with -s

Type: mount -uw /

Type: cd /System/Library/Extensions
Type: mkdir intel_back
Type: mv AppleIntelHD* AppleIntelF* intel_back/
Type: touch ../Extensions
reboot with -v GraphicsEnabler=Yes IPGEnabler=Yes PCIRootUID=1

 

​If I wouldn't do that my Mac couldn't even start (after installation I can start just with -x mode if I wouldn't do that).

 

But I have Intel HD Graphics 4600 and it show to me 7MB VRAM of Graphics, and no kext loaded (of course they are moved) but Ican't start with these files in the folder. So.. what should I do?

 

Edit: I found out that boot working with every file of this name but exclude AppleIntelFramebufferAzul.kext. This kext doesn't work and doesn't let me boot.

Would you share the .kext? I can't find it anywhere else, and I would like to try this fix.

If you want to try again, but it with clover boot loader, PM me. I has the same problem as you, but with clover it is extremely stable. Zero problems. I also use the HD4600 graphics.

I don't think this is possible, VGA working with discrete card, not with integrated

I'm also having problems with HD4600 (i5-5670K/GA-Z87-HD3) except I have my monitor connected via HDMI, tried everything stated above and have no luck :( Have no idea what else to try...
