- HD 530
Thank you so much for this guide!! ... I had problem only having 7MB on my intel hd Graphics 530. This guide solved it. But I can only use HDMI and have some gliches when I start up os ( MAC loggo change colour between red and green)
As detailed in the guide, further patching of the IGPU framebuffer may be required in order to be able to use all display connectors on your motherboard.
Please see @CaseySJ's excellent guide of the subject here :-
General Framebuffer Patching Guide using Hackintool Please do not quote this guide in its entirety. Post a link instead. 15 Jan 2019: Intel FB-Patcher has been renamed to Hackintool. 19 Jan 2019: Guide overhauled. Please be aware of possible HDMI hot-plug issues.

I looked though that guide and it seems like a very nice guide. I read though some of the guide and got to number 5, and saw this:
5. But herein lies the problem: When the proper (accelerated) display driver is connected, your motherboard's HDMI and DVI ports will stop working. So you must either (1) connect your display monitor to a different but working video port on the motherboard (try DisplayPort), or (2) use a discrete (external) GPU and connect your display monitor to the discrete GPU.
My problem is I havent got any DGPU unit or display port unit. I runt with a HDMI to DVI cabel now and i haven't found any problems with it
unfortunately I do have an issue with (disappearing) Sound output via DisplayPort/HDMI (I tested this; behaviour is exactly the same no matter if I connect my monitors via HDMI or DisplayPort, respectively)
thank you for you advice. As a workaround I am thinking of getting just some plain old desktop speakers to be connected via audio out.
Hi, In BIOS, under Integrated Graphics Devices Config, What should I set for Integrated Graphics Share Memory and DVMT Memory? 64M and 128MB, respectively for Headless IGPU Configuration?Headless IGPU Configuration (Desktop systems only)
If your primary display adaptor is a dGPU such as Nvidia or AMD and you have a supported IGPU then using a headless PlatformID will allow your Hackintosh system to be more stable and behave much more like a genuine Mac with access to IGPU hardware accelerated features.
To use the IGPU in headless mode you must set the following BIOS options :-
- IGPU -> Enabled
- Primary Display Adapter -> dGPU (PEG)
- Multi-Monitor Mode -> Enabled (if option is present)

For some odd reason, I could not find DVMT Memory setting in BIOS and it supposed to be under:@Archangeliques,
MacOs does not use the "Integrated Graphics Share Memory" BIOS setting, it allocates system memory as needed using it own method. However Windows does use this setting so if your using the IGPU in Windows then you should set it accordingly. If you don't use the IGPU in Windows then it's best to disable it via Device Manager.
MacOS expects "DVMT Memory" to be at least 64MB, most users find it works well set to 128GB as per your example.
