Notes:


  • The reason we patch for the HD4000 is so you can use AirPlay. It also allows you to use 2 more monitors. With a GTX670 that gives you 5 total screens.
  • I’m using the latest BIOS update
  • Thunderbolt
    • Works but you must boot with the device plugged in. No hot-plugging.

Hi,

Thanks for pointing me towards this updated thread. Where do I find the download for "Patched MacBook Air and MacBook Pro Update 2.0"? That's the only step I haven't done on my current build. I'm wondering if it might fix my aperture Loupe problem with updated graphics drivers? Is that what this update is geared for?

Alfa,

I'd recommend everyone to install the MacBook Air and MacBook Pro Update 2.0. It adds support for the chipset and updated video drivers, and it will correctly display Intel 7 Series Chipset in System Profiler, no need for the injection.

hey anyone, I need your help. I'm a total noob and use almost the same built as you do, but only with the graphic card and using the HD 4000. i read the directions as the instructions said and when I restart, i get the "Reboot and Select proper Boot devices or Insert Boot Media in selected Boot device and press a key." My motherboard has the bios F11 and using the Cooler Master HAF X.

Nevermind. I updated the BIOS to F12e and it worked, but when I want to shut down, it keeps restarting.
