M14xr2 Need Help with HD4000 Graphics

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts



I have been trying to get my alienware laptop working as close to 100% as I can. I have everything workking except for the graphics. I am actually typing on it now.


I used iATKOS ML3U to install OSX I can boot out of safe mode but had to remove all the AppleIntel* GeForce* and NVDA* kexts for it to boot.


I have no clue how to fully use the uefi bootloader option so I have just used the latest chimera boot loader with the boot1h boot0 fix.


I also have imessage and everything working except Facetime crashes at the start of a call. The solution which should be a working graphics card.


I can't watch youtube videos or any flash as the picture freezes or doesn't play period. I can watch mp4 videos with quicktime though fine and the screensaver works fine.


So my question is what do I need to run the HD4000 Graphics? Which kexts are absolutely needed and which ones can I do without?


I can reinstall all the video kexts again if I have to and just remove the ones I don't need.


I would be very grateful for any help since I have been scouring the web and most osx86 sites to try and find a solution.


It has a HD 4000, GT 650m card on an i7 3***qm
