  1. HD4000 VGA

    I may misunderstood the first reply. What i asked can be done, one just have to edit the AppleIntelFramebufferCapri.kext instead. Anyway, i did it, thanks God its working, i love you! (i already had your post bookmarked but wouldn't know it was the solution) I wrote in a pdf (attached) all the steps i did trying to follow those instructions, if someones wants to see what worked for me ,in combination with the the above links .. (i hope i didn't write something wrong inside) After that, AppleGraphicsPowerManagement.kext doesn't seem to be loaded if i type kextstat in the terminal. I should do my efforts on that, so ,again, If anyone already knows a realtivily easy to follow guide to point me for enabling it ... (thanks again for the links..! ) HD4000 VGA notes.pdf

  3. HD4000 VGA

    Hello, anyone can help me enable hd4000 vga? I ve been searching and trying for some weeks now, before annoying other human beings, but i can't go any further without straight help. Informations floating here and there for different cases but i can't combine or adapt them . All these things are way too complex for my brain…(Basically, all this reading is general very difficult and overwhelming for me, due to my ADHD) Anyway, i ve installed and have been inside Mountain lion 10.8.2 very easy without a need to type in any flags in the boot screen. Bios has been flashed before anything else with modified version downloaded from biosrepo. Sleep and step speeding don't work, and i only have network if i boot through the USB installer ,but these are ok at least for now, first concern is to enable graphics support and with 1366x768 resolution.So: With the guides below, i think i altered the kext AppleIntelSNBGraphicsFB.kext with hex friend, which is needed for enabling VGA . http://forum.osxlati...tel-hd3000-gpu/ same thing here: http://www.osx86.net...-hd-3000-a.html However, I can't edit the DSDT with "Method (_DSM, 4, NotSerialised)….." because my DSDT already has a "Method (_DSM, 4, Serialised)" under GFX0, and if i add it, it is causing error ("Name already exists in the scope"). If i delete the original one, more errors occur. I couldn't find a google answer for that. (Not that i am sure what i exactly i have to alter inside a DSM method to adapt it to my hardware, even if i could find an answer). So, maybe the same thing could be done with EFI string instead (?), but i couldn't understand how to do this one. Best (most complete and easiest to follow) guide for EFI strings i could find was this : http://www.insanelym...to-efi-strings/ but unfortunately its a different case and the first part of this guide ("part one") is confusing me...
