First you need to disable the AMD graphics, as they will not work in macOS. This is why your HD4000 IGPU is showing as the main graphics processor on the About this Mac screen.

To disable the AMD dGPU you should add the -wegnoegpu boot argument to your config.plist. This is assuming you are using a recent version of WhateverGreen.kext and Lilu.kext.

Then you need to look at adding a compatible mobile framebuffer for the HD 4000.

Assuming you are using Clover as your bootloader and are able to open your config.plist in Clover Configurator, you should add the following Device > Properties to your config.plist:

Devices tab in Clover Configurator.

Close up of Properties section on Devices Tab, showing the default properties for a laptop using a HD4000 IGPU.

I would also recommend you read through the General Recommendations section of the WhateverGreen manual - FAQ.IntelHD.en.md, to ensure you don't have any unnecessary, contradictory patches, kexts or settings in your config.plist.
