Hi,

ASRock Z77 Pro 3 (UEFI 2.10)
i5 - 3570k
GTX 970

First Hackintosh, a few minor problems.
To make things easy, I removed my GTX 970 and configured BIOS for "Primary Graphics Adapter : Onboard" with Share Memory set to 64MB.
My monitor (Dell U2414H) is connected via HDMI to the onboard HDMI connector.

Using Clover to bootload, and boots fine into Sierra from my SSD.

Sys Report displays:

Intel HD Graphics 4000
VRAM 5MB
Resolution: 1280 x 1024 x 32

Movements are very choppy (due to the 5MB VRAM?)

Attached is my config.plist - Injecting Intel and 0x01660008 set for fake ID so I can boot into Mac OS X without multiple iterations of the same screen appearing side-by-side. (That ID is very probably not correct, but it works to get me into Sierra from my SSD, as opposed to my USB).

How do I increase my resolution and VRAM correctly for the Intel HD 4000 on-board graphics?

Thanks,

SW

config.plist/Devices/FakeID/IntelGFX=0x01660008 is invalid, and a great way to disable the graphics drivers.
You do not need FakeID... remove.
