I've installed macOS 10.14 Mojave on my external hard drive few weeks ago. I'm having trouble getting the graphics to work. I tried Multibeast 10.4.0, it wasn't showing the IntelGraphicsFixup option on the graphics menu, then I decided to use Multibeast 10.3.0. The graphics wasn't working either. Right now, I don't have the config.plist file, and I'm using my USB drive(which contains the files created by Unibeast 9.0.0) to boot into macOS. Why is this actually happening?

None of them, I tried by myself. last time I successfully got the graphics working on High Sierra but not in Mojave.

Follow the Clover guide linked from the FAQ. http://www.tonymacx86.com/el-capita...faq-read-first-laptop-frequent-questions.html

Although you should read the FAQ for an overview of issues, the Clover guide is linked from the first question: "Q. Where do I start?", just after the bold face "Clover Guide". Here is a direct link, just to be clear: https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/guide-booting-the-os-x-installer-on-laptops-with-clover.148093/

Also, your profile must be filled out with complete details as requested in the FAQ, again under "Q. Where do I start?". All seven details requested are equally important.

And if you have an issue (after following the guide), or on any other problem, you must provide a detailed description of the problem including information that helps us understand what you're doing.

Always attach "Problem Reporting" files as per FAQ. http://www.tonymacx86.com/el-capita...faq-read-first-laptop-frequent-questions.html The required files and data are fully detailed in the last question in the FAQ: "Q. What are typical "Problem Reporting" files?"

Intel HD 5500 works well with Whatevergreen and proper FB patching in config.plist (check with FB patcher),

My HD 5500 (and some others) also requires injecting FakeID (0x16268086) otherwise it will hang on boot, right after the QE accelerator kext loads.

I don't use FakeID.

I rather set in config.plist /Graphics/ig-platform-id to 0x16260006 (HD 6000 for iMac16,1 / MacbookAir7,1 / MacbookAir7,2 as my SMBIOS is for MacbookAir7,2). But it is not even needed in my case, I can boot without trouble even without that. I just ensure to get GFX0 to IGPU rename in /ACPI/DSDT/Patches/ and let Whatevergreen detect by itself the graphic card and do the rest... Then settings for FB patching is done for 16160002 in /Devices/Properties/...

But several different approaches can make it work. Just take care to not mix them to not get a mess.
