Two Issues - Bootloader, Intel Graphics

Question

Hi,

 

I'm having some issues, and I'm hoping that someone could help me.

 

Here are my computer specs:

 

Motherboard: Asus H81I-Plus

CPU: Intel i5 4670K @ 3.8GHz

GPU: Radeon R9 290 (Disabled, my HDMI/DVI is plugged in to my motherboard)

 

Here is a run down of what I've done today with regards to this.

 

I got a new SSD, so I thought I'd re-install Mavericks on to this SSD. It installed fine, then it restarted, I removed my USB, and proceeded to choose my SSD as my boot option, but when it went to boot, it just went straight to BIOS, is that an error with my boot loader? Anyway, I plugged my USB back in, and choose and booted from that by choosing my partition with Mavericks on it. This all went fine, and I got to the desktop.

 

I had no network, so I installed a kext and that went fine. Again, I removed my USB and still I couldn't boot from my SSD. So the USB went back in, and I proceeded.

 

I was hoping by now, my onboard graphics (Intel HD 4600) would be working, but when I went to change resolution on the display settings, the only option was 1024x768, so now I'm guessing that Mavericks isn't recognising my on-board graphics?

 

I'm having some pretty annoying issues here, and I'm hoping someone can help me fix them.

 

Please could someone help me get my onboard graphics working, and someone help me have the ability to choose to boot from my SSD without using my USB.

 

If you need any more information, let me know. (Sorry for the wall of text).

 

Thank you.

    • Sierra installed without any issue, but cannot get GT620 to work. Installed Cuda and Webdriver and boots without issues, but home screen wallpaper disappears and screen becomes black. Is this card supported on Sierra?

    • This is my first time doing Hackintosh. I've several other machines running Mac using UniBeast and Multi beast. I wanted to try Hackintosh Vanilla. So far, no luck. I followed the Guide and MacPwn Mojave Guide. 
    • Hello! I wanted to install MacOS High Sierra, but the SSD does not appear in Disk Manager. I have a Samsung Pro 840 250GB. Is there a Driver for Intel Gigabit 82579LM Network LAN for MacOS High Sierra?
    • This is my very first post and have looked around the forums to my question but I wasn't able to find the exact specifics that I need. This is my very first windows/mac dual boot project. I chose to attempt high sierra and I hope I am posting in the correct area. High Sierra seemed to be the newest that is possibly more stable than Mojave so I chose that. I'm reaching out to the more advanced builders and experienced people. I'm currently running Win 10 as of now and bought a separate SSD to install a macOS on. Before I invest time and energy into this. I'm wanting to get the best recommendations on what OS I should choose , if my hardware will be up for the task and my best plan of attack. I'll be honest I'm not ready to bang my head on the keyboard for hours. I've been there and done that.  My hardware was some of the best at its time in 2011 and I'm not 100% confident it will work with a more up to date macOS I'm also concerned about drivers for my GPU.  All input is welcomed   Here are my current specs:   CPU
          Intel Core i7 2600 @ 3.40GHz    28 °C
          Sandy Bridge 32nm Technology
