  1. Can anyone help me compile one? I need to patch one so that I can follow the rest of this tutorial: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/295584-disabling-nvidia-optimus-card-on-all-laptops/page-11 The thing is I'm not sure what's going wrong, I've tried to use Chameleon wizard to patch it but got 3 errors, and from what I've been told if it has any errors at all it will not be patched so no disabling nVidia for me. Someone told me to manually rewrite the DSDT, or maybe it was to rewrite the patch within it but I simply have no idea how that is done or where to even begin Some instructions would be great, I would like to understand what I'm doing so I know what exactly is going on. Not sure if this is necessary Specs: Asus S550CM (touchscreen laptop) Intel core i5-3317u 1.7 Ghz Quad 8 Gigs Ram 1TB HDD 24 Gigs SSD (mac installed on it) Win 8.1

    Disabling NVIDIA Optimus card on all laptops

    Okay I'm sorry but I'm not understanding this correctly, 22K lines of code here I' supposed to use MaciASL to add the patch manually? If so I have no Idea where it shold go, there's about 22K lines of code here. I was using Chameleon wizard to try and patch the DSDT , got errors, Am i supposed t try and patch it with MaciASL now?

    How come System Information still says my nVidia is still there? I got 3 errors while patching the DSDT is that it and how do I get rid of those errors?

    Can you help me as well? I've PM'd you a few questions The thing is I'm not sure where I'm going wrong
  6. I was looking in IOregistry and found this, maybe this has an effect?
  7. I think I know what the problem is. Since all my graphic Kext were in my backup folder , I only moved Capri and IntelHD4000 kext , but there are more than that EDIT: nothing changed they're just bundles:| I'm not sure it if did anything by moving them 69 6 0xffffff7f811b5000 0x43000 0x43000 com.apple.iokit.IOGraphicsFamily (2.3.6) <11 7 5 4 3 1> 70 0 0xffffff7f811f8000 0x10000 0x10000 com.apple.iokit.IONDRVSupport (2.3.6) <69 11 7 5 4 3> 71 1 0xffffff7f81c07000 0x6000 0x6000 com.apple.AppleGraphicsDeviceControl (3.4.12) <7 6 5 4 3 1> 72 2 0xffffff7f81b24000 0x72000 0x72000 com.apple.iokit.IOAcceleratorFamily2 (98.7.1) <69 11 7 6 5 4 3 1> 73 0 0xffffff7f81c0d000 0x57000 0x57000 com.apple.driver.AppleIntelFramebufferCapri (8.1.8) <72 71 69 11 10 7 6 5 4 3 1> 75 0 0xffffff7f81b96000 0x4c000 0x4c000 com.apple.driver.AppleIntelHD4000Graphics (8.1.8) <74 72 69 11 7 5 4 3 1> Capri and IntelHD is in there , I just copied anything else that said graphic in case they're causing the problem. Capri=3 , I've tested some other and got some weird blank screen with stripes and glitches.
  8. Still laggy just like when it says 64MB (plus low brightness now), should I change something in my computers BIOS or something?
  9. Alright sounds good, I wasn't really to fond of updating either but how do I change my SMBios to a MacBook Air ? [url=&quot;http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/&quot;]#####[/url] does not have that option and Clover will only say it's Macbook air if I boot with clover.
  10. Alright new day, I've restarted my graphics card is now detected but 64MB. At least now it performs like it actually has the amount it says. Im trying to fix that now to make it 1 Gig again. The combo update , where do I get that from?
  11. I used disk utility and got this. First time I've seen this and I thought it would fix things but it didn't. Animations are still laggy, and my screen brightness went down. Everything is exactly the same it was before when it only said 64MB shared, I got no improved performance whatsoever. WHAT IS WRONG?! Just uploading this photo and Imgur got so twitchy , I expected once I got this done I would be done with my mackintosh for sure
  12. Okay the main problem is that when I add the files to the Extension folder it tell me they have failed to install. http://i.imgur.com/N6TF2D8.jpg http://i.imgur.com/Sv0rKgt.jpg
  13. Ok I'll try , I'll move all the kext from /Backup to /System/Library/Extensions and see what happens this time.... Edit: I booted up fine this time , but the Kext are still not loaded, they're in the correct folder now though. Is changing the platform-id relevant if they're not loaded yet? I don't want to reboot my system 11 times for nothing.... Edit: Okay , I understand now that changing the platform-id will load them, still no luck, is it necessary to restart each time I change the value? Is it necessary to have both IntelCapri and Platform-ig in the boot.plist?
  14. Thanks for letting me know, I don't know how that got there I didn't add anything manually How should it be then? I read that and I can't seem to load it, I've changed this value to mine and it doesn't load. They're all in my /Backup folder for some reason , I don't have any graphic kexts in my main extensions folder... Last time I added them into my extension folder my system would not start not even in safe mode I'm afraid to put them there. Is this the correct one I should change?
