I have successfully installed El-capitan on to my laptop , on a USB 3.0 External Harddrive , but I'm just running it on my USB 3.0 hard drive to iron out the kinks before I do a actual installation. So i've gotten the keyboard , mouse , and audio to work with kexts, however I can not seem to do anything to change the graphics - it is stuck at 1024 x 768 , with no other options available. I have tried to install the nvidia web drivers , but they haven't fixed anything either.

I created my current installation on Unibeast with the "Nvidia 610" graphics drivers included, but I have also tried to create a Unibeast install without this option to try to see if Intel graphics would work , but it could not boot [ black screen] , so it seems I don't have any option but to use NVIDIA graphics. I read on other forums and various places that this card is not supported on Mackintosh installations... however the only way graphics seem to be working on my laptop right now is thru nVIDIA.

So how do I fix this issue?

There is only one Clover guide linked from the FAQ. It is linked from the first question, "Where do I start".

Update : it was not related to the drivers, instead it had to do with the DVMT graphics memory. I set it at 256mb, load vbios and inject intel grphx and put in a specific igplatformid(which I will add to the post later), disabled nvidia graphics in clover and it was successfully able to work

Also updated to Sierra.
