I recently tried to add a second monitor to my M1530 Hackint0sh without reading a tutorial how (assuming it worked with the nvidia drivers)

Now when I try to boot up I am receiving a blue screen on my laptop display with the monitor unplugged (and none on my external monitor when plugged) that has a mouse cursor able to move around.

Is there any way to fix this? Reformatting would be a huge pain considering I've already installed quite a few programs...

Should I just reformat and get it over with? :)

You could try booting with -f. Hit F8 just before the grey apple screen then type -f at the prompt. If that does not work, reboot and type -x to boot into safe mode then reboot again.

I tried the -f and that did not work, now I'm trying the -x and has been loading (The gray apple loading screen) for about 15 minutes now... does it normally take this long? o_o

No,

If you try -v -x it may give you a clue as to what the problem is. Sounds as if something is a bit screwed.

Found a problem I think, there seems to be a continuous startup loop going...

localhost mDNSResponder mDNSResponder-171.4 (Apr 20 2008 11:59:52)[###]: starting
  localhost mDNSResponder[###]: Couldn't read user-specified Computer Name; using default bDevice-00164C9AF34b instead

edit: Going to disable internal NIC and Wifi to see if anything gets fixed.

Didn't fix it... bDevice-00164C9AF34b just changed to bDevice-000000000000b and the other do the same ( without trailing b )

Hmm, If it were a desktop I would have suggested removing all networking cards. Can you turn off the wireless and any other lan cards in the bios. I still am not sure this is the real problem, but it is perhaps worth a shot. Then try booting again with -v.

That's what I tried, I'm just going to pull out the hard-drive, back it up, and then reformat. Oh well :hysterical:

While I'm doing this, do you happen to know of any good Sigmatel 9228 audio drivers? Possibly with headphone jack support and mute? The one I had previously only allowed internal speakers and no mute.

I'm running a Dell XPS M1530 if that's of any help.

Thanks for tryin' with the issue :D

If that does not work, you can do the following:

If you are using Natit:

Boot with -s option,
then mount -uw /
then rm -fr /System/Library/Extensions/Natit.kext
then rm /System/Library/Extensions.kextcache /System/Library/Extensions.mkext
then reboot

If you are using NVInject:

Boot with -s option,
then mount -uw /
then rm -fr /System/Library/Extensions/NVinject.kext
then rm /System/Library/Extensions.kextcache /System/Library/Extensions.mkext
then reboot

Going to try this real quick.

Still doing the mDNSResponder problem.

Sounds like something else got screwed, think a reformat may be the quickest option unless there are others here that know more unfortunately.

Damn.

Alright, I'll get started on that.

Also, should I use journaled or regular partitioning? And from an earlier post, do you happen to know of any good Sigmatel 9228 audio drivers? Possibly with headphone jack support and mute? The one I had previously only allowed internal speakers and no mute.

Journaled. I will have a look around for sound drivers.

I love how quick the reformat is, :(

Puts vista to shame... Now I gotta find this USB fixer

Don't know if this will work with your particular configuration, might be worth a go:

hey,

i come along with this:
Posted Image

what i've done: i installed ipc 10.5.6 with a geforce 9600 GT (1gb of ram). mainboard is a asus a8n-sli deluxe and there is a seagate hard drive. everything worked fine, then i edited the efi and so on after this manual: http://forum.netkas....php?topic=222.0 . i also used OSX86 Tools.
when i start the system wothout -v -f under DVI i get a blue screen without cursor and i cant get to the login... theres nothing, just blue-ness. i also can't perform a blind login, the hard drive does not blink.
when i start it with a vga cable with -v -f i get the screen in the picture (kernel panic).
when i start in safe mode (-x) everything works finde and it starts up correctly.

so, what can i do to make it work normal ?
