In here you will find my QE/CI and CI only packages for your 1st Generation Intel HD Graphics IGPU for OS X Mountain Lion, OS X Mavericks, OS X Yosemite, OS X El Capitan, macOS Sierra, and macOS High Sierra.
Choose your package:
Download the Intel® HD Graphics QE/CI package if your laptop is using the LVDS connector. This package has the necessary kexts to enable Quartz Extreme with Core Image (QE/CI). This enables full hardware/graphics acceleration.
Download the Intel® HD Graphics CI package if your laptop is using the eDP connector. This package enables Core Image (CI) only. This enables partial acceleration.
Note: CI only (CI) is only available on OS X Mavericks 10.9.5 and below. Future releases of macOS requires full graphics acceleration (QE/CI) for optimal performance and stability.
