Problem HD4000 + GTX 480 10.8.2

1 post in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello. I'm building a new hackintosh but i'm unable to get graphics working.


My specs

Gigabyte Z77x-UD5H Bios Rev. 14

Intel i3770K

Colorful GTX480

Asus GT210



My problem is that i can't get both graphics working together. I can only work with HD4000. I have generated EFI strings to HD4000 and GraphicsEnabler=No installed latest Nvidia Drivers and set MacPro 3.1 definition and iMac 12,2. I can't see desktop. HD 4000 set in bios 32 MB. I've tried with both graphics card that i have GTX480 and GT 210.


Scene 1

HD 4000, Graphics Enabler= Yes. It works.


Scene 2

HD 4000, GrapihcsEnabler = No, Efi Strings for HD 4000. It works.


Scene 3

HD 4000 set off in bios, GTX 480 GraphicsEnabler=yes, i can't get desktop. It doesn't work.



Scene 4

HD 4000 set off in bios, GTX 480 GraphicsEnabler=no, i can't get desktop. It doesn't work.



Scene 5

HD 4000, GTX 480 GraphicsEnabler=yes, i can't get desktop. It doesn't work.



Scene 6

HD 4000 Efi Strings for HD 4000, GTX 480 GraphicsEnabler=no, i can't get desktop. It doesn't work.


I have tried with GT 210 with same result. I've i put a discrete GPU i can't boot totally. I need to put a nvidia card to get CUDA.


ThankYou for all

      I have that machine with an HP Advanced Docking Station. Everything else works great. I have 3 drives set up with OS X Sierra, Windows, and Linux. I can use three external monitors with Windows 10 and Ubuntu 16, works flawlessly. I also have a desktop Nvidia Hackintosh that can. The monitors are DELL U2410f DisplayPort(two monitors must be DP or Active Adapters for 3 screens to work). The machine is a rev 9 HD4000 with a 1600X900 panel.
      However OS X struggles to detect the third monitor. It will activate the third monitor and put it right to sleep.
      Docking station has
      DVI.  DVI
      DP.    DP
      (using DP)
      Notebook Has a DP out
      VGA never used, No HDMI
      I can use any combination of two screens, internal or external.
      Here is my frame buffer for starters, 
      Here is the original AppleCapriFrameBuffer: 09 00 66 01 01 03 03 03 00 00 00 04 . - 09/ 3 ports 00 00 00 01 00 00 00 60 10 07 00 00 - 10 07 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 - 00 00 00 00 50 29 04 00 00 00 00 00 - 01 00 00 00 02 00 00 00 30 00 00 00 - LVDS 02 05 00 00 00 04 00 00 07 01 00 00 - DVI 03 04 00 00 00 04 00 00 07 01 00 00 -DP I edited it to this, but did not really get a change: 09 00 66 01 01 03 04 03 00 00 00 04 - 4th port 00 00 00 01 00 00 00 60 10 07 00 00 10 07 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 50 29 04 00 00 00 00 00 01 00 00 00 02 00 00 00 30 00 00 00 02 05 00 00 00 04 00 00 07 01 00 00 03 04 00 00 00 04 00 00 07 01 00 00 03 04 00 00 00 04 00 00 07 01 00 00 - Another dp? Is there anything else to try? I saw some stuff for desktop, but I'm not sure if it applies to notebooks.

       Hey all,
       I built my first Hackintosh back in 2012 and its been runner amazing. Thank you again for the awesome guides and forums that made it all possible. I have however hit the end of this builds software limits. I am still running 10.8.2 mountain lion on the machine. I would like to update to Sierra and want to make sure I am clear on the procedures. Now that it seems like everything is could based and no longer get physical versions of OS.
      currently i am backing up the system using and external drive and "carbon copy cloner" as shown here: http://www.macbreaker.com/2012/06/backup-your-hackintosh-with-carbon-copy.html
      My question is should i follow the set via the App store updates, Wipe the system and start over or is there a better way to achieve running Sierra on my machine?
      Here are my build specs:
      Processor name: Intel Core i7
      Processor Speed: 3.50 GHZ
      # of cores: 4
      memory: 32gb
      Boot rom version: insanelymac.com
      Graphics Card: Nivda GeForce GTX 670
      System Version: OSX 10.8.2 (12c60)
      i have also attached screen shots of the spec to further help:
      Thank you for taking the time to help me out with my build. look forward to getting this bad boy updated.

      selling off a couple of my mackintosh projects as i don't follow the scene anymore really.
      last build i put on it was yosemite and it all works apart from the mini pci wifi that is no longer supported,but it works fine in mavericks and can easily be swapped out.
      the trick is this one has HDMI input so you can have an iMac that lets you run your games console on the same screen. 
      uses desktop CPU so can be upgraded to i5 or i7.
      it also has windows 10 licensed to the device and it supports mSATA if you wanted to dual boot which is what i did.
      UK only but if this is of interest to anyone drop me a line, happy to discuss and answer any questions..

      The macOS Sierra was released yesterday, I installed it on a USB hard drive to test with all my Laptops. This one is i5-3317u HD4000 platform.
      - Use bootdiskutility to create clover folder and partition for 8GB flash drive. UEFI Clover 3761
      - Extract and restore the base system to USB hard drive.
      - Voodoo 2.8.8 for Audio.
      - Ethernet RT8111.
      - patch clover for BCM94352 dual band wifi and BT4.0 with handoffs to work.
      - USBInjectAll.kext for booting from USB (kexts/10.12).
      - Use Trackpad.Preference.pane from El Capitan for the trackad.preference.pane to work.
