You see Mac uses one of the four id's to detect HD4000 correctly with the connectors data, so this issue is common and for solving this you have to patch dsdt with four id's or try to inject device properties into boot.plist and try to see which one works for you. Send me your dsdt/ssdt dump based from here :https://osxlatitude.com/index.php?/topic/1945-dsdtssdt-patching/ and I'll patch it then let you know

hi everyone!

I have it last time and it is stuck to 10.8  and can't be update anything at al.

I try clover bootloader on stumble, and it is running 10.9.3 now, it is works everything, even lan, except the SD card and HDMI is unkown.

the clover bootloader require a bit of learning but turn out it is great.

if anyone like to try, I will write what i have and learn.

 

PS: I just clone OS from other desktop drive I have, and I have not DSDT also.
