can anyone using dual monitors with hd 530 ?
using a desktop smbios is wrong on a laptopI'm new to hackintoshing, but i'm having issue with my graphic latop on my SONY VAIO PRO 13 laptop (i5-4200U, 4GB RAM, HD4400). When I assigned the right device id for the IGPU (0x0412) my screen looks like this:

In the debug zip attached, i'm booting with 0x0412 device id and 0x0a260006 platform id.
The graphic glitch doesn't affect screenshot apparently, so i'm able to see that the graphic VRAM is 1024MB when 0x0412 device id is being used.
Also 0x0412 device id allow my top bar and icon dock on the bottom to be slightly transparent. Which from my understanding that means the QE/CI is working perfectly.

I tried different configuration with my limited knowledge on framebuffer patching such as adding cursormem patch in device properties. But that doesn't do anything.
Also my bios setting is very limited. I can't set any of the DVMT memory stuff that is available on desktop motherboards. I don't have CSM option. The only thing i can change on the BIOS is VT-d and secure boot and i've turn both of them to disabled.
It's my first installation of hackintosh, I'm sorry if i don't know what i'm doing with my config.plist and DSDT/SSDT. If you see obvious problem in how i set my config.plist and DSDT patch please feel free to let me know.
Any suggestion as simple as what keyword i need to use to google this problem would be much appreciated as well.
Thank you for having a look and noticing the obvious mistake. Apology for not being clear. the config.plist that has the desktop SMBIOS was me trying different configuration (you can see how desperate i am )using a desktop smbios is wrong on a laptop
Correct me if I'm wrong but my understanding, bios option CSM is legacy support enabled. I don't have such option.have you tried legacy support enabled secure boot disabled in your bios
this is the only option i have in my bios in terms of booting option. if i switch to legacy i won't be able to boot to clover in my ssd as it's installed as only UEFI boot.Compatibility Support Module
The Compatibility Support Module (CSM) is a component of the UEFI firmware that provides legacy BIOS compatibility by emulating a BIOS environment, allowing legacy operating systems and some option ROMs that do not support UEFI to still be used.
Hi. Legacy gonna be CSM in your case. MacbookPro is a bad choice, use MacBookAir6,2. You can use my Clover folder for my Asus for your reference from my Signature.this is the only option i have in my bios in terms of booting option. if i switch to legacy i won't be able to boot to clover in my ssd as it's installed as only UEFI boot.
unfortunately i don't have option to enable legacy support then boot UEFI at the same time. am i making sense? again, sorry I'm new and inexperienced.
