Help with GTX 750Ti & i7 4790K's HD 4600 Graphics to use dual monitors.

Hi, I have just got up and running with a basically bang perfect OS X El Captain install on my MSI z97 PC MATE, i7 4790k, GTX 750Ti system. First time I have managed to get anywhere as I knew exactly what to do this time yippee. I am trying to get my i7's HD 4600 graphics working in OS X so I can get using my two displays (main in the 750Ti HDMI, second in onboard HDMI).

From what I can see in the Clover Configurator, I need to do ig-platform-id along with inject Intel. What will be the ID I put in for my specific config though as I see that it is different depending on your CPU and Mobo.

Took a while to work out what I did wrong at first as I followed what someone else said but my screen was going black after booting meaning the ID I obviously used was the wrong one. I have in my UEFI settings both graphics devices enabled for dual displays just for a note.

Also for reference my boot args are 'npci=0x2000 nvda_drv=1'. I took out dart=0 as it's working flawlessly with VT-d enabled.

Am I able to have fast boot enabled or is that a no no?
edit: Fast boot works flawlessly ;D

Thanks in advance

HI, Can you share the entire installation process for your build as it is similar to mine. I have MSI z97a gaming 7 board. and same processor as you have but not the graphics card. I was able to install the OS but failed on post installation with clover. Thanks in advance.

Hey, if I can remember, it's probably that you've not set your boot args on clover to
"npci=0x2000", and if you have an nvidia card, "nvda_drv=1". Those were the only two things I did, and the rest was just plainly following the install guide for clover uefi install with z97 boards. Refer to the tutorial for settings you need to disable in your uefi, though I assume you already did this seeing you managed to install it.

I'm currently using a MSI Twin Frozr AMD R9 280X 6G now rather than the 750ti, and sometime I'll get the RX 480X whenever that's supported with OS X or rather should I now say hackOS seeing it's now going to be macOS :p

Been running OS X on here ever since, still all perfect, never once had any issue other than sound, which I always use a external usb soundcard for anyway, and updates are a breeze, though I have a spare hdd in my computer for clone backups just incase things mess up which hasn't been the case.

Will note how I get on upgrading to Sierra when it's all ready.

What part failed? I have the gaming 9 board and the same processor and it all works without issue.
