Clover does support ig-platform-id

Just set:
InjectIntel=True
ig-platform-id=0x16160002 / 0x16160001

It works for me, although Clover will inject Intel HD6000 in model name (just cosmetic). It's easier than dsdt patching.
My bad.
I checked again and it worked.

And I guess 0x16160001 should be 0x16160000

Hi Austere!

Thanks sooooo much for the guide. I've read it about 3 times over now and am anxious to begin.

One quick question before I begin, based off your guide my dedicated video memory in windows is 64mb, dvmt = 96mb does that mean I can skip down to step 3 and go from there?

Thanks,
JC
Yes, you can directly try to inject ig-platform-id.

looking forward to your response.:)

Also, you should note that DropSSDT should be false, because my laptop got still waiting for root when a specific ssdt is dropped.

Alright, didn't get as far as I thought I would.

I used the InjectIntel=True and ig-platform-id=0x16160002 / 0x16160000 as standard boot flags is that incorrect?

I also used -v and -x for safe and verbose mode. My laptop waits a few moments, shows the udid and then restarts. Any tips?

Wait, are you talking about Drop Tables?

If so, I remembered that we used Drop Tables to drop custom CpuPm SSDT, and everything worked fine.

InjectIntel = True and ig-platform-id = 0x16160002 are not boot flags.
They are in Clover's Config.plist.

If you only drop Cpupm, there is no problem, but if you drop all, os x can't read startup disk.

InjectIntel = True and ig-platform-id = 0x16160002 are not boot flags.
They are in Clover's Config.plist.

I fixed them and then I used a Clover Config program to double check and confirm.

I've disabled USB 3, turned on Legacy support, and I am continuing to use safe and verbose mode.

My installer looks something like this
using safe mode
..................................
root device udid is xyz

and it immediately restarts. I am branching out and scouring this site for more info because it may be unrelated to broadwell/hd5500 but I kinda doubt it.

Thanks for the support!

You have to set KernelPM=True, and you must use OS X >= 10.10.3

You can try this config.plist here
http://www.tonymacx86.com/yosemite-laptop-support/161591-intel-hd-graphics-5500-need-some-help-4.html#post1022435

Make sure you open the config.plist and change DropOEM in SSDT to false.
