Switchable graphics on ML (5650m and intel hd)

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi, I'm new to this osx86 world and i've recently installed successfully Mountain lion on my HP DV7-4035es, with everything working except wi-fi and ATI Graphics. The problem is that i don't know how to make the ATI 5650m work, and i don't even have access to advanced settings on BIOS (for disabling the onboard gpu). My specs are:

Intel i5 (all cores working)

4GB ram

ATI HD 5650m + intel HD graphics

 

thanks even for taking your time to read my issue. :moil:

Thank you for your answer, i'll try it as soon as i arrive home, but if i could make the dedicated gfx card work it would be awesome, cause is much more powerful and that.

But one of the problems is that i can't disable the intel hd, because i don't have access to those advanced settings of the BIOS (i don't even't see them grayed out, they just aren't there).

That means you're stuck with the Intel graphics until a solution has been found. Unless you find an unlocked BIOS for your Laptop that allows disabling the integrated graphics. But as far as I've read in another forum the mobile radeon cards in such laptops use the HDx000s framebuffer for graphics output. Which means disabling integrated graphics completely would leave you with no graphics at all. BE WARNED

      Please help me with this 10.9.5 system. Motherboard: Gigabyte 965p-s3 rev3.3, gpu: Ati Radeon HD6450 (dvi/hdmi/vga). 
      Using any of the 3 ports on the 6450 (dvi, hdmi, vga), I see all the white letters on black background during boot but when they complete and it's time for the graphics to start I get a black screen and sometimes a restart after that. Using Clover 4411. Is there any way to get past this?

      Hi there.
      I'm new to this site but not totally new to hack. I've had a hack since 10.4 and the latest version I ran was 10.9, not totally fixed but it worked to what I needed. Now I want to make the machine run as good as it can. I can see there has been a lot of changes/upgrades/new solutions since I installed my hack and I have a hard time to catch up.  
      I've been able to boot and install macOSX and now I need the POST installation.
      I tried to install the clover EFI boot loader with these settings:
       
      and found the DSDT.aml and SSDT-0.aml from HERE
      found the apfs.efi
      and placed it in EFI -> EFI -> CLOVER -> driver64
      and these kext in here:

       
       
      But when I boot it up this is the first bootscreen I have. No partions, no mouse control, no nothing.

      if I exit clover this screen appear.

      and now everything works. 
       
      What is wrong?
      Cheers
      Soren

      Thank You to MaLd0n for all of his help getting me up and running!
       
      Pre-Requisites
      You must have a Mac with a working App Store
      You must have a USB Drive with a size of 8 GB or more
       
      Installation
      In the App Store download macOS High Sierra
      Download DiskMaker X and run it
      Setting the OS Install App and the USB Drive
      - You may want to format the drive into 1 partition
      If you encounter any errors, see the DiskMaker X FAQ page
      Download the latest Clover EFI Boot and install it on the same USB Drive
      - With these Settings: (Thanks to MaLd0n for these settings!)


      On the USB Drive, on the “EFI” volume, under the “EFI” folder, replace the “CLOVER” folder with the one in this archive:
      CLOVER Install.zip  (Thanks to MaLd0n for these files!)
      Restart your computer and boot into the USB Drive’s EFI volume
      In Clover select “Boot OS X Install from ” + your USB Drive’s name
      ​The first “install” will copy the installer to your hard drive
      After the first reboot, in Clover, select “Boot macOS Install from ” + your Hard Drive name
      - Note: I had to do this step twice, before the next step was available to me
      After the next reboot, in Clover, select “Boot macOS from “ + your Hard Drive name
      - Note: This will be your normal option going forward
      Now you will have to install Clover on your Hard Drive, so that you don’t have to use your USB drive anymore.
      Download the latest Clover EFI Boot and install it on your Hard Drive
      - With these Settings: (Thanks to MaLd0n for these settings!)



      On the Hard Drive’s “EFI” volume, under the “EFI” folder, replace the “CLOVER” folder with the one in this archive:
      CLOVER Install.zip  (Thanks to MaLd0n for these files!)
      Reboot to this new EIF volume on your Hard Drive
      - Note: This will be your default boot volume
         - You can set your BIOS to boot to it by default
      - In Clover, select “Boot macOS from “ + your Hard Drive name
         - Remember this will be your normal Clover option going forward
      Download and Install Clover Configurator
       
      Post Installation Manual Fixes
      The Mouse Scroll Wheel is set to the “Apple Touchpad direction”
      - To fix that, go to System Preferences -> Mouse and uncheck Scroll direction: Natural
      Eject button is stuck in the menu bar
      - To remove, hold down Cmd and drag it out of the menu
      Cannot view Hidden Files
      - In Finder hold down CMD + Shift + . (dot)
      ​Home and End keys have weird behavior
      - ​Use this Post to fix that
         - Note: The Folder/File you create need to go in your User’s hidden Library folder
       
      Known Unresolved Bugs
      Dual Monitor Bug
      - When booting up, 1 of your monitors will get turned off
      - To turn it back on, unplug both monitors, then plug them back in

      AppCleaner
      Karabiner
      Lightshot
