No video acceleration Intel HD 630

Recommended Posts

Finally I managed to install Sonoma on my "new" used PC I got, as my old laptop was only able to run Ventura.

My PC is Dell Optiplex 7050 Mini
CPU: Intel i5-7500T
iGPU: HD 630

While install it went into a boot loop, so I had to add -igfxvesa:

<string>-v alcid=1 watchdog=0 agdpmod=pikera dk.e1000=0 e1000=0 -igfxvesa</string>

While this helped with boot loop and was able to instal Sonoma, now it is extremely laggy for normal use. 

I can see at System Information -> Hardware -> Graphics that it say Chipset Model : Intel HD Graphics 630, but that is all, it is not accelerating it and if I remove -igfxvesa I again go into boot loop. 

I guess I need kext, but I am searching last 6+ hours and can't find anything. 

How I can fix this and have normal use of Sonoma, with my iGPU acceleration? Any suggestions or help? I can't add other GPU in that tiny PC, no slots or space, so other GPU is not an option.

I already saw that page and as not good at this, used ChatGTP to help me set proper values to config.plist. We ended with this for now:


















Which shoud fake device-id to 0x5912 (Base64 encoded to AgAAAAAAAA==) and framebuffer to 0x59160000 (Base64 encoded to AQAAAAAAAA==). 

I also removed existing -igfxvesa and added instead shikigva=128 (that was ChatGPT suggestion). 

All above fixed my issue with boot loop (without -igfxvesa it was boot loop always). 

But I still have no iGPU acceleration, as tehre is no chage of how laggy everything is. Minimizing a window make MAc freeze for 5-10 seconds, animation not show up, jsut 1-2 frames. Many things are still same lag. And of course no audio (I think they are related with iGPU issue).

What else I can do? Any mistakes I made aven with help of both that page and AI ?
