Intel HD 4000 + NVS 5200M

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hey Guys,

 

I got a Lenovo T430S which has Intel HD 4000 + Nvidia NVS 5200M in it.

 

So far, I've searched the interwebz and found nothing useful for the HD 4000 FOR LAPTOPS (desktops seems easy).

 

I'm really used to desktops and the last time I installed a hackintosh in a laptop was like 3-4 years ago.

 

Could someone please point me to the right direction on making Intel HD 4000 work on a laptop?

 

Is the Nvidia NVS 5200M working in OSX as well?

 

I really am hoping I could get QE/CI on either those videocards.

 

I would make a guide as soon as I make it work! Thanks

The Intel HD 4000 guide for desktops should work exactly the same on laptops. I don't see why it would be different; in fact, the MacBooks are the only laptops with the HD 4000, no Apple desktop (iMac or Mac Pro) has them. Try this for getting the Intel HD 4000 working. Getting the nVidia card working would take some extra hacking. In a nutshell: If you have Optimus, you're gonna have a bad time.

 

You could also try this EFI string:

8800000001000000010000007c0000000200000002010c00d041030a000000000101060000027fff0400100000006d006f00640065006c0000001a000000496e74656c20484420477261706869637320343030302c0000004100410050004c002c00690067002d0070006c006100740066006f0072006d002d006900640000000800000005006201

Thanks for the reply. I actually don't mind using the nvidia card ever. I'm fine with HD 4000. I'll give it a try. thanks!

 

EDIT: That EFI string is for the nvidia card or the intel hd?
