You may recognise me from this thread: http://www.tonymacx86.com/graphics/...king-nvidia-web-drivers-343-01-01f01-f03.html

My monitor is connected via HDMI to the ASUS GeForce GTX 750 Ti 2 GB DDR5 (Samsung) PH Series (with single fan). I have given up on trying to get the 750 Ti working and moved my focus to the on-board Intel HD 4600.

My initial graphics in my motherboard BIOS are set to PCIe (GTX 750 Ti's slot), allocated 64 M to the on-board graphics and set DVMT to max.

I'm keeping the 750 Ti plugged in and connected to the monitor and leaving it as the initial graphics provider because I use that card regularly for gaming through HDMI on the Windows 8.1 that I'm dual booting with my 10.10.1.

Booted with nv_disable=1 (to prevent the NVIDIA card from being used) nvda_drv=1 (to prevent the Web Drivers from being loaded) through Chameleon/Chimera. Also added IGPenabler=yes and GraphicsEnabler=yes and I always land up on the colored grainy fuzzy login screen as seen attached instead of the usual translucent one (no matter if I try booting up with on-board graphics or with the 750 Ti). However, when the computer sleeps and wakes up, the login screen appears as it actually should.

Anyway, the menubar is never translucent, window titlebars sometimes appear or disappear, Safari titlebar has pixelated artifacts, Chrome for Mac keeps flickering on any webpage all the time. Other graphics are sometimes choppy or laggy.
Pretty sure QE/CI aren't working.

'About This Mac' shows Display 7 MB or 6 MB if on-board graphics are enabled and NVIDIA chip 7 MB if the NVIDIA Web Drivers are running.

When I tried the steps from this video, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l96hCAIBml8
'About This Mac' detected on-board graphics and showed 'Intel HD Graphics 4600 (null)' Never showed any VRAM only (null).
Verbose boot was sometimes showing the detection of the on-board graphics but lately I don't see it (I have enabled and disabled so many things and made so many changes that I've lost track of what exactly is preventing it from being detected during boot (maybe the absence of a kext).

Now I'm back to my original MultiBeast configuration (DSDT Free) with no kext for on-board graphics.

Scoured every post there was on the internet for the HD 4600 as well as the GTX 750 Ti, nothing worked for me. After exhausting every possible solution at my end, I present my case to you.

If you're wondering why I have the device properties hex, it's thanks to this guide: https://giuliomac.wordpress.com/2014/03/03/how-to-enable-intel-hd4600-natively-on-your-hackintosh/

IntelAzulFB=10 seems to work for me best.
My platform ID is 0d220003 I'm pretty sure.
Device ID is 0412

It doesn't show the Intel Graphics being detected probably because I don't have the kexts from the above video running anymore. It detected the card when I had just installed them.

One more bit of info, my system definition was Mac Pro 3,1 when I was trying to get the GTX 750 Ti working (since Web Drivers don't install otherwise) but I changed it to iMac 14,2 since it apparently works best with the on-board graphics and my CPU (Intel Core i5 Haswell 4440) as per a forum post I read somewhere. Also, my Gigabyte motherboard is an 8 Series motherboard.

Please have a look at all my attachments and help me out if you can.
The video of the glitch while transitioning from the login screen to the desktop:
Graphic Glitch Login Screen to Desktop Transition.mov
The video of Chrome for Mac flickering:
Chrome for Mac Flickering - Graphic Glitch.mov

Which kexts should I install and what settings should I keep?
