System is AMD/Radeon only. No Intel IGPU.

From looking at the ProBook guide, the 8x70 AMD plist uses:
config.plist/Graphics/Inject/Intel=false
config.plist/Graphics/Inject/ATI=true
config.plist/Graphics/LoadVBios=true

That's what I use, but I was thinking about using your plist as a base to make a new one. Is "config_HD4000_1600x900.plist" 7-series? Also is there any Intel GPU specific settings other than in the Graphics section of the plist?

If you took the HD4000 plist and made the changes I suggested, you should have something close to what is required.

Chipset not specified, but is probably HM7x. Refer to post #1 regarding which plist to use. There is only one HD4000 1366x768 7-series plist.

Are these still compatible with Mavericks, or is there something I should remove for example in boot arguments?

The files apply equally to 10.11->10.7
(there are even some bits for HD3000 on 10.6.8, but they are disabled by default).

Please, in your profile as requested in post #1.
Okay, I was able to install El Capitan.

I have some problems now.

Am I suppose to use Macbookpro 9.2 or 7.1 definitions?..
I also get a flickering of the screen when I first login
Am I suppose to use Inject Intel Graphics or not?
Either way I still get the flickering of the screen.

MacBookPro9,2 is Ivy Bridge and therefore a match for your hardware. You can get Mac specs at everymac.com.

See here: http://www.tonymacx86.com/el-capitan-laptop-support/175801-guide-native-power-management-laptops.html

The plists provided by the guide in post #1 already have the correct injections for your hardware.

Either way I still get the flickering of the screen.
You must be using the wrong plist.
