How to Enable DRM on macOS



QUICK INFO
DRM requires a compatible Discrete GPU. See NVIDIA and AMD GPU Compatibility for more information.
Currently, DRM is broken for IGPU since the release of macOS 10.12.3, the DRM is broken. For the earlier versions, up to 10.12.2, it can be fixed using WhateverGreen. This means systems running IGPU even if it is supported as per the IGPU Compatibility, DRM will be still broken. This is due to the issue that on Non-Apple Computers, systems with IGPU don't support Apple's firmware and the Management Engine doesn't have Apple's certificate.
