No "Problem Reporting" files attached.
Read "Problem Reporting" in FAQ.
Attach files as requested.
Really sorry for that. Anw, I've tried to patch SSDT-7.dsl without Brightness fix:
  • Rename GFX0 to IGPU
  • Haswell HD4400/HD4600/HD5000
  • Rename B0D3 to HDAD
It worked well at first (but without brightness control) then restart => boot loop. So that I have to removed the patched SSDT and the system went back to only 4mb on graphics card. Please help me ASAP. Thanks a lot.

Your SortedOrder is wrong. As per guide, SSDT-PNLF.aml must be loaded *after* OEM SSDTs.
Also, ACPI/patched is missing SSDT-7, SSDT-8, SSDT-9.
Read the ACPI patching guide for ACPI patching basics...

I patched SSDT-7,8,9 and renamed to 1,2,3 (due to the guide for Yosemite/El Capitan). I found that the problem was I used old Kext to patch in config.plist and everything goes well nw.
But there's a small problem with brightness control by fn+: when I press for brightness down. The screen suddenly turn black, and up => brightness window still appears permanently. I don't know why @@. It happened to me before with Yosemite, too. Btw, I use the old method for brightness control because my Sierra is 10.10.2 and the new one seems doesn't work well. (Also tried to list orders afther SSDTs)

You should not rename SSDTs. It is just confusing.
Brightness problems are a known problem with your version of macOS.
Update.
