I just try the best with Monterey first. If no choice I will come back Big Sur.
i have used Monterey a little, back to using big Sur, not seeing a huge great deal between the 2 to be honest :)

Maybe, you can try Catalina, find a proper installation/guide/EFI what is working without a doubt and after you know what is wrong on Big Sur/Monterey, or just missed something the OC Guide.
Find a member on the site who has the same device/hardware/HD 4000 and talk to.

#43/5. - you said you get full graphics acceleration with that trick.
#45 - here, it doesn't. DRM is not important at this level.

Edit: Bios settings is right? - Do a factory reset, and change the value according to OC/Ivy/Bios.

DaveJ1, As per talk I don't want use the trick. So that is why I still talk in case no graphics acceleration to find out better ways for me.
I will arrange time to do following Feartech and your recommendations.

Hi guys!

Let’s see, what we’re going to do in here.
It was quite a challenge and took it numerous time to learn OC after Clover, hopefully you will be enjoy it.
This Setup has only 1 graphics unit, which is a dGPU!
All responsibilities is yours!

Bios:
- UEFI Native(without CSM) or Hybrid(with CSM) - I didn't notice a difference.
Disable:
- Fast Boot, Secure Boot
- Wake on Lan, USB
- Lan/Wan switching
- Firewire/IEEE 1394, Serial port, Parallel port (Fingerprint reader, Modem etc. - optional)
- VT-d (can be enabled if you set DisableIoMapper to YES)
Enable:
- VT-x

Spec:
BIOS: F.74 (8470p, 8470w, 6470b, 8570p, and 6570b - 68ICE or 68ICF ROM)
CPU: Intel Core i7-3740QM - Ivy Bridge 3rd Gen
GPU: AMD Radeon HD 7570M 1GB (LGD0306 - 1600 x 900@60/40hz)
Audio: IDT 92HD81B1X5 & ATI R6xx HDMI
Ethernet: Intel 82579LM Gigabit Ethernet
Wireless: Intel Centrino Ultimate-N 6300 AGN
Touchpad: SynPS/2 Synaptics TouchPad
Card reader: JMicron Card Reader

What’s working:
- CPU Power Management (XCPM, X86PP, AGPM)
- dGPU - Backlight Control, Brightness keys, QE/CI-yes, DRM-no(ATV+), AGPM
  • External Display: I found an “issue”, when connected to a monitor(first), switches to 10bit and the color is vibrating, and when you set to back 8bit(resXtreme) you get a gradient glitch and a freeze, but after a reboot it's working fine. (If you have a guess, read me.)
- Audio/DisplayPort(HDMI) - IDT 92HD81B1X5 - LayoutID=3 & ATI R6xx HDMI
- Battery Percentage - notification for low battery, AC/DC status, (no cycle count yet)
- Sata Trim support
- SD Card Reader & USB 2.0/3.0
- KeyBoard(FN+Audio/Brightness) & Touchpad(on/off - Tap to click)
- Ethernet & Wifi & Bluetooth 4.0 (BCM20702A0)
- Webcam & Mic
- iServices (App Store, iMessage)
- Boot menu - OpenCanopy
- HandOff, Night Shift

What's not working:
- AirDrop, Continuity(BT. Related)
- Fan rpm and detailed temperature read.(now just basic)
OCLP related:
- Sleep/Wake - in progress
- Some sort of Cosmetic Issues
- Widgets - Done button glitch - tap Tab and Space/Enter to ok
- Safari Extensions Tab not allowed you to check any box of it.(Safe boot too) and the warning window is can’t be closed, only restart Safari work.) - You need to sign in and download/install the wanted extensions and enable before you install OCLP.
- The icons on the menu bar changing position sometime.
- FileVault is unsupported
- SIP and SecureBootModel must be disabled
- Delta updates are unsupported

Install:
I tested on 11.4 and 11.3.1 but the backlight control was broke, so I reverted to 11.2.3.
I used OC Legacy Patcher for enable graphics(QE/CI).

To install macOS follow the guides provided by Dortania.
To install Legacy Patcher:

Create your own EFI from scratch or use mine.

I make Pre&Post install EFI, pre for boot and install, post for afterwards.
(If you stuck on choose Drive "You cannot use this drive to install." - Use MacBookPro11,3 SMBIOS on Preinstall)

In Short: Reset NVRAM before you start!(Disconnect any connected I/O other than the Installer.)
- on the desktop(after install(Pre) & preset the OS):

1. copy Post EFI folder to your mounted Disk/EFI.
- sudo diskutil mountdisk /dev/disk0s1 && open /Volumes/EFI/EFI
- gererate ssdtPRGen (-x 1 on mine with Kernel/Patch/XCPM)

2. boot recovery to disable SIP - terminal: csrutil disable - csrutil authenticated-root disable - (Csr active config - NVRAM - delete in config)
Note: Disabling SIP with OpenCore is quite a bit different compared to Clover, specifically that NVRAM variables will not be overwritten unless explicitly told so under the Delete section. So if you've already set SIP once either via OpenCore or in macOS, you must override the variable:

3. boot to OS, download and install OpenCore Legacy Patcher as should be.(Tap "Patch System Volume")
*Safari Extensions
- Click here.

4. reboot and enjoy!
- You may experience colors strobing on reboot.(epileptic seizure!)

Keep in mind! Important!
  • User configurable, those prone to seizures are recommended to avoid or have another setup the machine due to initial colour strobing before forcing Million Colours on the display with SwitchResX or ResXtreme.
In Long:
- Xcpm & X86PP - ssdtPRGen generate with -x 1
Kernel > Quirks > AppleXcpmExtraMsrs to Yes.
_xcpm Bootstrap under Post EFI config/Kernel/Patch
If you want to more you need to search for 5T33Z0 X86PLATFORMPLUGIN.(Rules)

dGPU:
- I used basic InjectAti method.(OC/Converting common properties from Clover to OpenCore) - Click here.(Gui/Graphics)
- WhateverGreen/Manual/FAQ.Radeon.en.md - find:MOBILE GPU - Click here.
- EDID+vBios.rom - AAPL00,override-no-connect + ATY,bin_image(64 KB) - (Config.plist)​
- I used live Linux and Windows for that.(If necessary I will describe it. - #12 & #16)​
- 1366x768 - @0,display-dual-link:00000000 - #4

Boot args:
- swd_panic=1 - Avoids issue where going to sleep results in a reboot, this should instead give us a kernel panic log

Debug: #1,119
- sudo dmesg > ~/Desktop/DMESG.txt opencore. Click here.

Touchpad:
VoodooPS2Controller(Rehabman version)
Error on boot: (need to recheck)
com.apple.iokit.IOHIDSystem
- VoodooPS2Controller/contents/Plugins/
There are 3 kexts, open info.plist from Contents and change com.apple.iokit.IOHIDSystem to com.apple.iokit.IOHIDFamily under OSBundleLibraries.

SD Card:
With the current SIP's.
HSSDBlockStorage+JMB38X to L/E with Kext-Droplet-V2. - Kexts.
Before reboot, you have to allow in System Preferences/Security & Privacy/General.

SMBIOS: Click Here.
Generate you own - MacBookPro10,1 for me
MLB - Board Serial
ROM* for iServices (NiC-MAC)
SystemProductName
SystemSerialNumber
SystemUUID
And Check on the Coverage site!

NVRAM: Click Here.
Verifying NVRAM - Emulated NVRAM

Battery:
IOREG shows Bat0, Bat1, BatZ.
If you have knowledge and want to help me, I would be glad.
(Yes I know the Rehabman’s guide)
On Clover this was patched with the old PBI-CE in DSDT and ACPIBatteryManager.kext.(Fully worked)

-
SSDT-SBUS-MCHC:
I can't decide if it works:
- AppleSMBusController: Loaded
- AppleSMBusPCI: not Loaded

Verifing:
kextstat | grep -E “AppleSMBusController|AppleSMBusPCI”

Executing: /usr/bin/kmutil showloaded
No variant specified, falling back to release
129 1 0xffffff7f82686000 0x7000 0x7000 com.apple.driver.AppleSMBusController (1.0.18d1) D69C0758-0371-369E-88ED-E11402B91008 <54 14 13 6 5 3>

I get the same with and without it.(Just cosmetic name change)
PCIe: 8086:0154 /PCI0@0/pci8086,154@0 = PciRoot(0x0)/Pci(0x0,0x0) Intel Corporation, 3rd Gen Core processor DRAM Controller.
IOService:/AppleACPIPlatformExpert/PCI0@0/AppleACPIPCI/pci8086,154@0/AppleSMCPDRC - under IOReg
What do you think?

Finito
Well, if you read this, you’re still in here, cheers my friend!
Please give any suggestion! Thanks!

Serial ports (SuperIO) should be disabled in the BIOS settings (if that option is available).

Hi Congnguyenbk93!

Well... With the PreEfi, you get the Desktop after install?
If you doesn't change "my" postEfi, then my first tought is the CPU-PM. You need to generate your own. ssdtPRGen.

Thanks for your quickly reply.
Of course, i can finish setup with pre-efi.
Stuck was happened when i change pre-efi by post-efi. I think because i'm using CPU i5 3220 # your CPU i7. But i don't know how to patch SSDT, DSDT.
Could u generate SSDT or DSDT for me? I give u all of SSDT that i dumped from my laptop by SSDT-time.
Pls re-check for me, i waste few days to check and recompling but don't get anything.
And the sleep function, Could u fix it?
BRG.

Talk with thienluong89#53 or lebuidinh#2 above, and ask for the SSDT-PM.aml, because of the same processor.
Then, paste "my" postEfi/ACPI. Which macOS version do you want to install it?

I got the lebuidinh’s efi, but i can’t boot with it, “disk 3sk1 0x3e8” error appeared. I tried fix this as some guides but no effect. One more, I recognize that CPU i7 infor in his efi, but I don’t know he patched ssdt or not.
