How to enable full acceleration of Intel HD 520 in Mac OS Sierra 10.12.6

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Recently I was installing mac os x Sierra 10.12.6 on my Hp pavilion x360 laptop. The installation was successful. But I am not able to use some of the things on it like touchpad, bluetooth, wifi and the memory it is showing is only 7 mb. 

 

My laptop's specification are as follows:

Name : HP Pavilion x360 s101tu

Processor : Intel i5 6200U 6th gen

Graphics : Intel HD 520

Ram : 8 gb

Motherboard : 80D1

 

I want to increase the memory for the acceleration which is 7 mb currently. I have tried to install the kext files namely Lilu.kext and Whatevergreen.kext. But that also have not enabled the memory. 

Please help.

Your iGPU is being reported at 7MB because you do not have graphics acceleration. Full stop. It's not that you want to increase video RAM for graphics, you simply need to apply the correct configuration to achieve full graphics acceleration. Your system will thebn report something like 1536MB for your UHD520.

 

What you ought to do is:

  1. cache or inject latest Lilu + WEG kexts
  2. keep Clover free of any graphics injection (Lilu + WEG now take care of that)
  3. patch your DVMT, either in BIOS or through Clover on-the-fly kext patches (you can Google for this)

I have already inserted the lilu and Whatevergreen kext files but still not getting 1536 MB video memory.

      Well, the title says it all! It worked flawlessly in 10.11.3 El Capitan. Verde.kext was needed, though! I just followed instructions for HD 7770. Using Clover UEFI, only works in EFI mode (at least mine). Model: ASUS Radeon R7 250X 1GB RAM DDR5. Also don't use InjectATI!
