Acer Aspire E1-570G, HD 4000 not working at all

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello,

After trying SO MANY times without success, I decided to seek help from my fellow OSX86 Community.

I have an Acer Aspire E1-570G Laptop with these specs:

- Intel Core i3-3217U @ 1,8GHz

- HM77

- 8GB RAM DDR3L 1600MHz (Dual Channel)

- Intel HD Graphics 4000 (ID=0166) and nVidia GeForce GT740M - 64-Bit Edition

- 15,6" with 1366x768 resolution

- Clover 3192 Bootloader.

 

I've been trying to get OS X working but I keep running into various problems:

- The common one is that Intel HD 4000 won't work, it's detected but 4MB VRAM.

- The computer sometimes auto-reboot after reaching a certain level of boot process as shown here (for reference only) 

. That problem mostly happen when I check "Inject Intel" in clover GUI before booting.

- It stuck if I use Chameleon with IGPEnabler=Yes and GraphicsEnabler=No

- I also get "Still waiting for root device error sometimes, I solved this by using Generic USB 3.0 kext.

 

What I tried:

- Using different versions of OS X: 10.8.2 Retail DVD (bought it long time back), 10.9.5 downloaded from App Store and 10.10.2 - 10.10.3 all from App Store.

- Using different versions of Clover, Chimera and Chameleon like Clover 2593, 3113, 3192 and latest; many versions of Chameleon including patched ones (2.1svn r1999 - r2000, something like that).

- Using both UEFI Mode installation and Vanilla Installation (with Chameleon).

- Using modded BIOS to be able to disable some parameters (not willing to change switchable graphics though, it's set to automatic; I once changed that value and run into a blank screen at start up on a HP Laptop).

- Changing VRAM value in BIOS varying between 32MB and 512MB (below 32MB and above 512MB will cause problem).

- Using different SMBIOS (MacBook Pro, MacBook Air and the generic Mac Pro "3,1")

- Using different IG-PlatformID (the 01660003 one was supposed to work, but it doesn't).

What I didn't try:

- Using DSDT to disable nvidia, I didn't because I can't find a DSDT for that GPU and I can't patch one myself.

 

So my questions now are:

- Can't my laptop be hackintoshed ?

- Can someone patch a DSDT for me that disables GT740M ?

 

Thank you in advance.

Hi,

 

Did you try the 01660004? 

Thanks!

I tried 01660004 but failed.

I solved it by using 01660008, that works OK.

It's weird because it was supposed to be either 01660003 or 01660004. The 01660008 and 01660009 are rarely used.

 

BTW, can you patch my DSDT (or maybe you can help me find someone who can do it) ?

I want nvidia to be disabled. It's a nVidia GeForce GT 740M - 64 Bit Edition (GK208M).

Hi,

 

Very old topic...

 

Some information on how to extract the DSDT and SSDT files can be found here: https://github.com/RehabMan/HP-ProBook-4x30s-DSDT-Patch/wiki/How-to-patch-your-DSDT

 

You can use a Linux live USB stick for that, or use Clover and mount the EFI partition when booted to copy the files. (Use Clover Configurator, makes things easy.)

Note that besides the DSDT the SSDT's are also needed to succesfully disable the Nvidia card.

After you have extracted the files, it would be best to open a new topic in the DSDT section requesting the patch.

 

Regarding the 4mb value, seems it works with ID 01660008 as stated above. If none of the values work, another patch to the AppleIntelFramebufferCapri.kext might be needed.

      Buongiorno Forum Italiano (????)
       
      Sono nuovo negli hackintosh, non so bene ancora come Funziona il tutto, ma mi serve il vostro supporto, 
       
      Premessa:  Conosco già il fatto che: L'Aspire One D255e non ha i Kexts del Wi-Fi e della Scehda video*
      (o nel caso con gli anni abbiano fatto i Kexts, vorrei avere i link se ci sono XD)
       
      In sostanza vorrei sapere se ci sono dei Kexts da installare dei seguenti pezzi hardware:
       

      Vi ringrazio in anticipo per il supporto che mi date, 
       
      Con amore,

      In this Guide I will explain step by step how to install Mac OSX High Sierra 10.13.5
      over an Acer Aspire E1-572-53GN.
       
      1st: Get a copy of Niresh High Sierra on Hackintosh Zone
      Create an USB with the DMG file.
      You will get BOOTLOADER partion
      And High Sierra Installer partition
      Use Disk Utility to restore those partitions over an 16Gb USB Pen Drive
      Use this config.plist provided in this Tutorial and put in /EFI/CLOVER partition of your USB
      After create these USB with Niresh, boot your Laptop
       
      Install High Sierra.
      After installation boot with this Pen Drive Again and do in terminal this
      dd if=/dev/disk*s1 (your pen drive) of=/dev/disk0s1 bs=4m
      Reboot
      Load MacOS High Sierra from Clover
       
      You are done.
       
      Now you has an Acer Aspire with High Sierra 10.13
      Apple Store
      Update
      10.13.5
       
      Let the system do it for you.
       
      Install Voodoohda 2.9.0 v12
       
      My Acer Aspire I had changed the LCD with an 1920x1080p Full HD
      I´m using an WN725n V3 USB Wi-Fi
      Install the driver for Wi-fi from the TP-Link Web Site
       
      Now you are done!
       
      Enjoy!
