Follow Steps to Fix IntelHD Graphics in MacOS X Sierra
After updating to MacOS 10.12.6, open MultiBeast and then in Bootloaders, select Intel graphic 6xx 5xx and then install the patch.
Now the next step is to download this Compressed folder. Extract it anywhere on your MacOS system. Inside that folder, you will find EFI Mounter app, IntelHD Graphics Kext files and Kext Utility to install Kexts on your Hackintosh. So next, we are going to do is install these kexts.
These kexts are customized and edited to work with IntelHD 600 and 500 series but you can always try them with older and update us.
Now download the appropriate Config.plist from Rehabman’s repository. For example, if you are fixing Intel 600 series, Download config_HD615_620_630_640_650.plist. Thanks to Rehabman for the patch. Similarly, If your system uses Intel HD 500 series or 5000 or 4000 or older series, download the corresponding config.plist file from the list by following the same link.
After downloading, Rename the file to just, config.plist. Alternatively, you copy the code and paste it in the existing config.plist present in the clover folder (watch video guide below to know How).
Then use EFI mounter app or Clover configurator to mount the EFI partition of your MacOS disk. Open the EFI partition, go to EFI>Clover.
OPEN config.plist with a text editor and paste the code and save the Plist file. As i just said, You can also simply download and then replace it with the config.plist instead of editing code.
Next, open Kext Utility or any other Kext installer and Install the two kexts from the folder which you downloaded earlier. If you are using Kext Utility, just drag and drop. It will automatically install the kexts to System>Library>Extensions folder and Rebuild system cache. If you are using Kext Wizard, make sure to rebuild system cache after installing Kexts.
Once it’s done. Close all apps and folders and simply Restart your System. If you see any error or kernel panic, please report me on the Techposts Facebook Fan page. Make sure to mention your System configuration and a screenshot of the error. If everything works well, you will see that your Hackintosh system is now using full IntelHD graphics acceleration and your display size with resolution will be automatically detected.
