hey there,

the only reason why i have to keep my windows partition is the fact, that i can use the internal display, as soon as a graphics-driver is installed.
i'm really sad about it :P


is there really NO f****** way???


is there at least at way to get the vesa-mode running in a higher res. then 1024x768???


any advice is more then welcome.
thanks for help.



greets,
robert

Hi Could you let me know how you have done this. I tried quite a few times about a year ago on Vaio but had no joy so gave up and have just been trying to find solutions for getting the internal display working with the nvinject drivers. I only gave up because i couldnt stand looking at the screen at the wrong res.

Cheers
Dave

it is not working with any driver.

well, it is working but only with an external display.
im still running in vesa, but i changed the resolution in com.apple.Boot.plist

just add:
<key>Graphics Mode</key>
<string>1280x800x32</string>

reboot, enjoy your resolution.

Hi I have added this and it still doesnt look right. The picture should be sharp at the correct res. Also when I go in to the display properties it still states 1024x768. Have you got any other advice

Also do you mean this wont work on the internal display even in vesa mode. I can get it to work on an external display fine with the drivers but for now am just trying to get it working on the internal display at 1280x800 in vesa.

but it worked very well for me....i edited noting else than the com.apple.Boot.plist
everything is clear and sharp.

dont know what could be the issue in your system. im pretty new in this whole osx86-thing



btw: i wrote this entry directly under the timeout-entry, so it is on last position.
maybe you check this! i dont know if the position of the entry even matters.....but it could matter.
