Intel HD 3000 - VGA HELL

12 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, so I am having a terrible time trying to get VGA up and running on this machine. You can see my specs in my signature, but it's an HP Laptop on 10.10 with Intel HD 3000 graphics.

 

So I've followed a couple guides...

 

https://insanelydeepak.wordpress.com/2015/03/10/guide-vga-hdmi-intel-hd3000-gpu/

http://forum.osxlatitude.com/index.php?/topic/1969-guide-for-enabling-vga-and-hdmi-in-intel-hd3000-gpu/

http://www.osxlatitude.com/how-to-enable-vga-and-hdmi-on-intel-hd-3000/

 

They're all the same.

 

but no matter what I do I can't seem to enable VGA output on this machine. I've got full QE/hardware acceleration, 1080p screen, HDMI working great, but I really need VGA on this thing.

 

I'm not sure I'm doing all of the steps correctly - for instance, in the above guides it will list the VGA code and then have 'xx' where it says the 'port number for VGA' should go. What would I put there..?

I've tried quite a few things, and I'll end up messing with it so much that it either boots in like 600x800 with no QE, or it doesn't show video at all. 

 

I've uploaded both my DSDT as well as my AppleIntelSNBGraphics.kext in a zip file, if possible could someone look over these to see what my deal is? I've been stuck on this one for a while now, feel like I've hit a wall here..

Hey Allan, thanks for the suggestion. I installed the kext using Kext Wizard after deleting the previous one from System/Library/Extensions and I put that DSDT in EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/Patched as well. 

This one's not working either... looking at the files you sent I can see the connector that's there and I think that it SHOULD be working. I really am not sure what's going on here, this one has got me stumped. Any further ideas?

I thought that 0602 was always VGA on HD 3000? Maybe the port number could be wrong? Thanks for the guidance man, I'm just not sure where to proceed here...

 

Edit: this link to OSX Latitude http://forum.osxlatitude.com/index.php?/topic/1969-guide-for-enabling-vga-and-hdmi-in-intel-hd3000-gpu/states that Intel Registry Dump in Linux could produce the VGA port number. Doing some Googling, I don't find any evidence that a program like this exists! This is the only guide of the over ten guides on this exact process I've found that states anything at all about how to actually find that port number, even though they all reference it.

I have HP Elitbook with VGA working on 10.10.x

I don't think the patched kext is enough in itself. I found that I must have a modified DSDT (GFX0 section) and SMBOIS for MBP 8,1 to activate the VGA port for HD3000.

 

Good luck

some models use Intel HD 3000 when installing hackintosh will support VGA.
 
and HDMI is not supported although some lines will support HDMI and VGA
 
.. Way to VGA operation are:
 
+ HD3000 still has the ability to Utilize VGA port with some minor annoyances, namely - full hotplug support. You have to connect the monitor is before you start OSX and khi you unplug the printer monitor running system, OSX will still think it's connected off until you reboot.

Hey can somebody help me to activate VGA on my Lenovo Z570 i7 with the Intel HD3000?

I have some patches and edits in the Clover config.plist but I'm only copy them from other sites.

Im not sure if these are corrects ore helpful, some are disabled.

When I plug in a external VGA monitor I get a screen, but the screen has many graphical bugs.

I already have a patch in Mavericks, but I forget to copy this before installing El Capitan.

 

Edit: Is it possible to patch the AppleIntelSNBGraphicsFB with Clover?

Because Clover patch it on the air. So I must not change the AppleIntelSNBGraphicsFB after every update. This is only a question if this is possible.

Can you be so kind and patch my Franebuffer, please?

      Since I'm an NVIDIA user, I won't update until the farce with NVIDIA's web drivers for Mojave is solved - but this guide works already for 10.14
       

      Introduction
      The H370 chipset powers 8th generation Intel Core-i CPUs. Even though the name H370 rings comparable to Z370, the H370 is based on newer silicon. This it also requires some new approaches compared to the Z370. An example would be on-die USB 3.1 and WiFi support.
       
      Since this guide is not a "hold-your-hand-every-step" guide, I assume you know:
      Clover installation and configuration How to create an install medium for MacOS Access and configure the BIOS Have heard of ACPI patching (I'm a newb at this myself)  
      What works
      Sleep (via DSDT edits and emulated NVRAM) On-board Audio (via AppleALC and native AppleHDA) Native power management (without any kext or patch) All USB ports (and only those present are active) iGPU for both acceleration and display dGPU (I'm running an Nvidia GTX 1080)  
      Untested
      NIC --> I'm using WiFi only  
      What doesn't work
      Native NVRAM via AptioMemoryFix.efi DMVT Pre-alloc higher than 64MB (but not necessary)  
      Community additions
      User @Panzerschiffe added a helpful post, altering this guide for user with AMD cards and not needing on-board sound.
      He also runs Mojave, which I don't run yet.
       
       
      Changes to the guide:
      22.5.18: Added SSDT hot-patching to enable sleep, replacing DSDT static patching as an alternative.
      23.5.18: Add iMac18,1 as alternative SMBIOS config for those relying on the iGPU for output
      25.6.18: Added update info
      28.8.18: Small changes for clarity, changed info for afps loading & updated USB patch for 13.6
      04.10.18: Update to Mojave will come once Mojave is more mature
      02.12.18: Removed unnecessary patches, fakepciid and audio patch method & linked to AMD post & added whatevergreen.kext as replacement for previois GPU kexts
       
      1. Installation
      This guide heavy inspired by the work of /u/corpnewt of /r/hackintosh and his (sorta) Vanilla guide
       
      1.1 Create the install media for MacOS
      Follow this, if you are using a Mac to start off with. If you are totally new to MacOS, then please check the basic guide Creation of an installer media in windows or linux
       
      1.2 Install Clover on the install media
      Using the Clover installer, ensure you are installing to the USB medium you are using for the installer.
      Chose the following options, leaving the others on default: 
       
      UEFI driver: AptioMemoryFix UEFI driver: ApfsDriverLoader UEFI booting only Install to ESP  
      You have to get your hands on an apfs.efi. A google search can help, or extracting it from the Installer package. Make sure you procure a version matching the MacOS version you are about to install. Place the apfs.efi in drivers64UEFI.
       
      1.2 Adjust the config.plist for the installer
      You can use the config.plist attached as a guideline, but take a look at it before and at least adjust the SMBIOS - otherwise it won't boot.
      Attention: The attached plist contains audio patches introduced by a post-install step. If you run into problems, you might remove those. It also contains a manual slide value, which should normally not be needed, but works fine for me. It is also tuned for usage with an Nvidia Pascal dGPU as main GPU.
       
      The config you create now should serve you nicely for install and running the system.
       
      Take care of adding the following basics:
      SMBIOS: iMac18,3 - You can generate a serial number via Clover Configurator. The creation of a proper SMBIOS is covered in many guides to good extend Note: If you aim at using the iGPU for output, a user reported that iMac18,1 works better - since iMac18,3 produces sever flicker. Look at the graphics section and adjust the injection for Intel to your situation  
      Fixes

      Patches

      Devices

      Graphics
      Important:
      Change 0x59120003 to 0x59120000 if you don't use a dGPU as your main display Driver and instead use the iGPU for output.
      Also note. SMBIOS iMac18,1 has been reported to work better in this configuration. But 18,3 works fine for me.

      Kernel and Kext patches
       
      1.3 kexts and friends
      Add the supplied SSDT-UAIC.aml to "patched" - it limits the injected USB Ports to the actual number and ports valid for this board.
       
      Required kexts on "Other":
      FakeSMC.kext Whatevergreen.kext Lilu.kext AppleALC.kext IntelMausiEthernet.kext in case you're running Ethernet USBInjectAll.kext with the HCI-300-series-injector.kext --> These two should be installed to /L/E after install  
      We are leaving sound out at the moment, this is something for post-install.
       
      1.4 Check BIOS and install
      You should be ready for install. But before you reboot, please take a look at your BIOS and set it up accordingly (copied from the aforementioned guide and adapted):
      Load Optimized Defaults Disable VT-d setting If your system has Secure Boot Mode, disable it Set OS Type to Windows 8/10 or OtherOS - I have not seen a difference Turn off internal Serial and Parallel port Turn off Network stack for boot Turn off wake-on-lan (for now) Set XHCI Handoff to enabled Don't enable decode over 4G Depending on your GPU, set priority for boot Set internal GPU (iGPU) to enable - not auto or disabled Set DMVT pre-alloc min to 64MB and max to 128MB. For this selection to appear you might need to reboot after setting iGPU to enable Set USB legacy to enabled Activate XMP profile 1 f your Ram has it (mine doesn't and I added the timings manually) Set ERP to enable, disable platform power management (I need to do more research if this could be enabled)  
      I've attached my current BIOS config "hack2". You can place that on a fat32 drive (the EFI partition of your install USB drive might be an idea) and see if it loads. It's made for and with the F2 BIOS.
       
      The install itself should be like other MacOS Hackintosh installs with it several reboots and ensuring to select the correct boot device in Clover.
       
      2. Post-install
       
      2.1 Install clover on target
      This is a no-brainer, but install a fresh copy of Clover on your target medium.
       
      During install select again AptioMemoryFix but also additionally
      EmuVariableUefi-64.efi Install RC scripts on target volume because otherwise NVRAM doesn't seem to work
       
      After the install, copy
      config.plist contents of "Other" content of "patched" to your new clover install.
       
      2.2 Edit ACPI for slumber
      Choose one option, not both. The hot-patch is experimental, but for the moment it is stable.
       
      2.2.1 Edit DSDT
      This is necessary only once on initial install and every time, you edit or upgrade the BIOS. The DSDT.aml attached to this post might work for your system or give you a file to compare to. Don't expect it to work for you, though.
      I won't go into the details of DSDT extraction and patching. There are better guides (the linked guide is a rip-off of rehabman's guide from a different forum). Please follow such a guide to extract your ACPI data.
       
      Locate and disassemble the DSDT with the newest iasl binary you can put your hands on, then open it with MacIASL in its newest version you can find (Hint: Here is a good source) You can check if the version is new enough if MacIASL doesn't throw error upon compiling a freshly extracted DSDT.aml or DSDT.dst
       
      Add rehabmans repo (as per linked guide) and apply the following patches:
      Rename _DSM to _XDSM Fix _WAK Arg0 v2 USB3 _PRW 0x6D Skylake (instant wake) Find the CNVW device and remove the _PWR function there.
       
      Compile the DSDT and place it in "patched".
       
      2.2.2 Use SSDT hot-patching
      Instead of having to re-extract and re-patch the DSDT on every BIOS change or update, Hardware change one can also use ACPI hot-patching.
      It's a combination of config.plist patches and an SSDT, which is hot-patched into the ACPI (if I understand the process correctly)
       
      You need to add this SSDT-GPRW.aml to your Clover folder in the designated position at Clover/ACPI/patched You need to add this patch to your config.plist. It goes into the DSDT patch section  
      Note: This works for me, but the patch removes the _PRW method from all devices in the DSDT. This could have side-effects. So far, I have seen none. At the moment I'm also not applying any other patch, compared with the additional edits I made to the DSDT method before.
       
      2.3 Install kexts to system
      As mentioned in the install section, it's better to follow rehabman's instruction and install USBinjectAll.kext to /L/E:
      sudo cp -R Release/USBInjectAll.kext /Library/Extensions sudo touch /System/Library/Extensions && sudo kextcache -u / 2.4 Enable onboard Audio - Install AppleALC kext
      Make sure your EFI partition is mounted and that you have a vanilla AppleHDA kext available. See below for a guide how to get a vanilla AppleHDA if needed
      Note: Our Audio codec is ALC887 and it's running with layout ID 1.
      Download the newest AppleALC kext from here and install it together with lilu.kext from here into your usual /clover/kexts/others location. Done. No scripts or config.plist patches necessary.
      Add layout ID 1 to config.plist, if it's not there yet:
      <key>Audio</key> <dict> <key>Inject</key> <integer>1</integer> <key>ResetHDA</key> <true/> </dict> If you previously  installed any  audio patches, please follow this guide to "vanilla-ize" your install.
       
      2.4 Optional steps for Graphics
      If you have a dGPU, now it's the time to install its drivers and adjust the config.plist for it. The detaisl are specific to your GPU and thus of scope of this guide. Yet, my supplied config.plist is ready to be used with Nvidia Pascal cards and using the Nvidia web driver.
      Whatevergreen.kext helps with Intel iGPU and NVIDIA dGPU fixes.
       
      At the moment I'm also testing out a special bootflag: 'shikigva=12' to enable faster rendering in Final Cut Pro X. Without whatevergreen.kext and a shikigva bootflag, rendering in final cut seem very slow.
       
      2.4.1 Framebuffers
      If you're facing problems with output from your internal GPU, you can try the framebuffer patches listed by @BackwardMac:
       
       
      3. Updating
      Updating inside 10.3.x/ 10.4.x point updates doesn't require much attention:
      Download the update from the AppStore as any Mac would do Allow the system to reboot Before booting MacOS with Clover, make sure to disable extra drivers for dGPUs which require non-native support. If using an Nvidia dGPU: Remove "nvda_drv=1"  from your boot arguments and disable Nvidia injection If using a non natively supported AMD card, do the same for AMD (I'm not using AMD, thus I cannot be specific) Boot into the newly created Install MacOS partition Repeat this process until the Install partition is gone Boot MacOS again, still following 3., and potentially install updated drivers Your Audio might require re-patching  
      4. ToDo
      Move away from static DSDT patching to SSDT hotpatching --> requires my work Native NVRAM --> requires developer work Audio without AppleHDA patching --> requires developer work  
      5. Thanks to
      @MaLd0nfor helping finding the right way with the DSDT
      @RehabMan, for being a legend and helping me out patching
      @toleda, for audio patches for the 300 series
      /u/corpnewt, for his superb vanilla guide
      @wmchris for his super XPS 9550 guide and introducing me to hot-patching
      @Panzerschiffe for his addition to this guide
      all the developers of clover and it's awesomeness

      Hi,
      Please help me to enable and use hd 3000 with Mojave.
      I know that I can install some .bundle or .kext files to make it can be enable.
      But it always show an err msg up. "IOConsoleUsers gIOScreenLockState 3 ......"
      I have tried to reinstall the refi drivers and kexts.
      but still not solved this issue.
      I will upload my EFI partition as a zip file below (Google Drive, Because It's bigger than 10 mb).
      Thanks for helping.
      For the details about my hardwares, please see my "About Me" page->Brian's Budget Hackintosh.

      Hi, my hackintosh won't sleep!
      It often sleeps for 3-5 seconds and auto wakes up.
      sometimes it can't enter the sleep mode even you click the sleep button.
      I have uploaded my DSDT file.
      but I don't know how to patch DSDT.
      If you know how to solve this issue, please help me!
       
      Cheers,

      So apple has presented a new and updated mac mini a few days ago, and the great news seems to be the use of desktop processors in it, in fact, all the specs seems to match a typical desktop socket 1151 v2 coffeelake system without a dedicated gpu, so i am wondering if the smbios of this machine could be our new smbios of preference for coffeelake desktop machines. So i have created this new topic to discuss about it. Of course we will have to wait to do tests using the first public version of mac os which integrates this smbios, because when every new mac is released it's smbios is available initialy just in a purpose made mac os build and then it's added for all the os builds in the following releases.
       
      So what do you think about the possibility of using this new smbios for desktop coffeelake machines instead of the imac 18.3/18.2 ones?
