There is no solution. Just cross your fingers that Apple's next lineup includes GMA X4500 video...then MAYBE we get driver support.

I would like to suggest trying command line options:


"Graphics Mode"="1920x1080x32" (or similar)


"Graphics Mode"= Tells the system what resolution width, height, color depth & refresh rate to boot the OS with.

Ex: "Graphics Mode"="1024x768x32" WIDTHxHEIGHTxDEPTH

If that doesn't work then you might want to try and modify the kext. These solutions worked for me on another system and card a while back

I really would like to now if this works since a motherboard I am looking at has this onboard.

I have the intel gma 4500mhd too. I understand that there is no working drivers for it but is there any way to force it into 1280x800, i tried the command lines and i dont have a boot.plist file. Any thing at all that can up the resolution, kext, anything? If not i think i will have to render my laptop un-macable because i cant stand to use its great display in 1024x768. Has anyones tired any external apps. Also has anyone got the eithernet working on an hp g-50 112nr.

Thanks a lot and good luck to other 4500 users

Guys, we're all in this together.. As everyone knows, we were all hoping that we would be getting GMA 4500 support in the new Macbooks, but Apple decided to scrap that idea and just go with NVidia. It was good news to NVidia users, but not to us.

There are three things we could do: first is get another video card or replace our laptops--which is the last thing in my mind right now.

The second is we could wait for the Macworld Expo this January and hope that we get support for GMA 4500 through the new Mac Pros (and perhaps the new Mac Minis, if Apple does release them). That's the best case scenario because we're going to get native drivers. So we'll have to cross our fingers for that.

And finally, if all else fails, I guess we'll just have to write drivers ourselves. As was written in this thread, Intel recently released the documentation that we need to write drivers, including those for GMA 4500. It's the best thing I've actually read all week, and it gives us hope that we will be able to make our graphics work. The only problem with that is that this will take a lot of effort and a lot of skill.

So we shouldn't give up. It'll work out, I think.. :D

Is there any way we can just manually set the resolution and forget about it? I'm stuck with 1024x768 while the native resolution is 1280x800...;)
