So I tried this with IGD Aperture set to 512MB (which is max) and the IGD min memory at 2048MB. System wouldn't boot. Had to remove boot jumper to get to bios to reset. Currently have setting at 256mb and 2048mb respectively and system boots. Why does it hang with a 512 MB aperture?
Also, is there a tech reference to those bios settings somewhere that is informative?
Keep the default BIOS setting for IGD Aperture Size and IGD Min Memory. This values are used only during POST and to boot of the windows.
Window 10 assigns automatically the maximum available graphics memory and it depends off how much RAM you have. Usually it assigns about half of available RAM. In my NUC where I have 16GB RAM installed, 8264MB is available for graphics. You can see how much Total Available Graphics Memory you have in your system. To do this open the Advanced Display Setting and then the Display adapter properties.

In regard to your inquiry about IGD Aperture Size & IGD Min Memory, I just wanted to let you know that those features will depend on the BIOS version, there are some computers where those option are not showing in the BIOS.
In regard to documents related to this matter, on the following links you will find more details about those features:
Any questions, please let me know.
