I'm on a laptop (Lenovo X1 Carbon)

Everything is working (apart from wifi and audio) fine, but a big issue is the graphics. I'm kind of a noob to hackintoshing so I don't know a lot about what to do. In my BIOS it says I have 512mb of VRAM, but in the "About this mac" panel in OS X it shows that I have 14mb of VRAM with my HD5500. I'm hoping to bump this up because right now this is unusable. It is stuttering on almost all animations and even in safari. Any help would be appreciated because right now I can't use my Hackintosh for much. Thanks guys!

Not a desktop. Moved to laptop support.

Follow the Clover guide linked from the FAQ.

Pay attention the Broadwell info in the FAQ. It is important.

So do I just need to replace my config.plist with something from here? https://github.com/RehabMan/OS-X-Clover-Laptop-Config

or do i need to do all the complicated stuff from here http://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/g...etting-dvmt-in-insydeh20-bios-laptops.165104/
