Hello. I have a problem on my first hackintosh. Its a laptop - Acer Aspire 5742g.

I will put a video with my problem. 

I enabled Nvidia WEB drivers but nothing has changed. I patched VBios in clover configurator.

You can't use your NVIDIA GPU because of Optimus technology which isn't supported in macOS. You need to disable it with a DSDT/SSDT patch since I doubt you can do it in Bios (I own a Aspire V3-772G and there's no option to do it so I presume it's the same for you).

 

I followed for mine but obviously you'll need to adapt it.

 

Good luck !

I searched for DSDT patch but I cannot find any. Could you help me by any chance?

Still when I go About this MAC > Graphics it shows my Nvidia card. Maybe its like that because I installed a kext for my NVIDIA card. Before that it was saying intel chipset with like 2-3mb. After I installed the kext it started showing my Nvidia gpu. The graphics were still buggy.

If you'll use this iGPU (Intel), you'll need read this guide: [GUIDE] 1st Generation Intel HD Graphics QE/CI

 

Just to confirm, you have an Nvidia GT 540M?
