Hi

 

I managed to install Mavericks by following this tuto

 

http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/293109-guide-dell-l421x-xps-14-late-2012-os-x-mavericks-109-installation/

 

HD4000 Graphics does not function meaning that the screens are flickering when I browse on the web when I m lucky. OSX animations are sometime freezing or very slow

 

Thank you

Philippe

Hi Jake

 

See in attached 2 files how HD4000 is recognized, I m afraid there is no Full graphic acceleration as screens and windows are flickering a lot. 

 

I think there not much in chameleon.boot list. I checked the original chameleon boot list content of the tutorial . The both are the same.

 

Mant thanks for you help 

 

Can you confirm if you got full graphics acceleration?

Perhaps try different platform-id.

did you disable the geforce using dsdt edit as suggested in that link you provided.

 

Hi Bronxteck

I m afraid not because I did not see this in Tutorial.

I ve read some folks have done it.

I don't have much knowledge on DSDT editing although I know editors exists

 

Thank you

Sorry if this response is a little late, but it might help others reading this.

 

The DSDT was already patched to disable the Nvidia and include the patch for HD 4000.

I just notice the bootpack from the guide is for 10.9 which include a patched FB.

If you're installing with 10.9.4 or 10.9.5, you'll lose QE/CI with the included FB patched for HDMI. You'll need a new patched FB.

I have the issue for my E6430 with HD 4000. Restore with the vanilla kext and you should have QE/CI again but without HDMI audio.

 

Let me know which version of Mavericks you're installing and I'll patch it for you.

 

Note: not sure why the author install kexts to S/L/E rather than in E/E since he's using myHack method but I can validate that you could install all the patched kext to E/E and run myHack/myFix (quick) without an issue.

Hi, I followed that guide too I have some problems:

1.When computer goes to sleep mode if there are any USB devices - he wakes up

2. System start > 1.5 min

3. Wake from sleep(without USB devices plugged in > 1min)

 

My Mavericks version is 10.9.2
