[SOLVED] E5540 config.plist

Hi All,

 

Does anyone have a config.plist for the E5540 with the 1920x1080 screen? I have an i5-4300U processor and Intel HD4400 graphics. I'm trying to get the installer working and just have random artifacts on the screen.

 

Thanks,

NIck

I was able to get this going by enabling the load video BIOS as well as Injecting the EDID. One last issue I am seeing is that the finder menu has some issue with the font. It almost seems hollow. Also the Apple in the upper left corner is red, sometimes light black. On the right side of the finder menu is ok. No issues with date/time etc. Video plays ok with sound on Youtube and the rest of the display is great. Any idea of what that may be?

 

Also with regards to the app store, can someone help me out on downloading El Capitan? It says something about not being able to verify my Mac.

 

Thanks

Are you sure you've got full graphics acceleration? One sure way to know, if you have a CD/DVD drive is to launch DVDPlayer app then check the Supported Features in Help menu. All should be supported.
 
For AppStore, make sure you've installed the Ethernet kext and that your LAN card is detected as en0; if en1, remove all interfaces from your Network PrefPane, then all plist files from /Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration and reboot.

add this to KextToPatch in config.plist to fix the menu artifacts issue

Thanks Jake. Sorry if this sounds like a Noob but is there some app so I can get the syntax correct? I have the following in that section. I've only used Clover Configurator before.
