Hi,
I've been trying to get the MacOS installer to boot up on my laptop but for some reason when it boots up, all I see is a fading black to grey screen and I can see every pixel on the screen.

Specs:
Intel Core i3-2330M
Intel HD Graphics 3000
4GB RAM

I followed the installation guide and used RehabMan's config_HD3000_1366x768.plist config file.

If I remove nv_disable=1 I'll get a black screen

By removing the AppleIntelFramebufferCapri, AppleIntelHD3000Graphics and AppleIntelSNBGraphicsFB kexts from clover and removing nv_disable=1, MacOS boots up but it still shows 3MB RAM on the GPU.

The same is for High Sierra, choosing another installer. I guess HS already supports Intel HD 3000.
