I am trying to use the integrated HD4600 for my graphics. It was working ok with Mavericks, after selecting the series 9 / 4600 patch in multibeast. In the latest version (7.2) of multibeast, that option is not there, but I understand it's setup to work without it, ala the IGPEnabler etc.

I was able to do the unibeast install and multibeast install without any issues. Things seem to be working ok except for the graphics, which are slow, flicker, and show no resolution options in the system preferences. Graphics are not hardware optimized.

In multibeast, I chose options that others have said to work. DSDT-free, Fake SMC, USB 3.0. I tried to set the system def to iMac 14,1 as some have advised, but hat did not fix the video and it caused problems with my wifi. I am keeping it at default Mac Pro 3,1.

Note that my video cable connects to the DVI port in the mac and to an HDMI port on the display (Dell 24 inch). The machine does not recognize what type of display it is.

When I run bdmesg, it appears that my graphics card is properly identified, matching what is on here:

Stuck and spending way too much time :(

You don't required this option.

Set IGPU Ram to 64MB
Then boot with "dart=0 IGPEnabler=Yes GraphicsEnabler=No -f"

Thanks for the help Jithin. Unfortunately that did not work.


  • IGPU is already set to 64MB in BIOS
  • IGPEnabler=Yes GraphicsEnabler=No: I believe that this already set this way as multi beast default, but I tried it anyway as a boot option
  • not sure what dart=0 does here, but I tried it anyway.
  • as for -f, whenever I have this option I get a kernel panic "a freed zone element has been modified in the zone kalloc64: ....

Try booting with "dart=0 -f -no-zp" (Do not boot with one by one use the 3 flags at a time)

Notes:-
* There is no space in between the -no and -zp
* VGA not supported on Yosemite, use DVI/HDMI connection without any converters.
