I managed to get a Snow Leopard install going on my HP DV6835 Laptop.
The first time I booted up Graphics were working perfectly. After the install for the mouse (applepcips2nub.kext, & appleps2controller.kext) and my modded WIFI kext the grapics default to vesa.
It's an Intel GM X3100 (not sure on the ven/dev id's at the moment).
Both the wifi and mouse/keyboard are working fine, and the only other thing I haven't figured out is the sound (alc268 if anyone has any clue on what to do for that too)

If anyone know's what to do to get this up and running i'd apprecite it. It's a pretty common device, and I know it's 100% compatible.

Maybe it was because on first boot I started in -x32

anyways, thanks in advance

add that to system/library/extenstions? or toss it in my extra folder?
I think I may have tried this already, but i'll give it another go.
Thanks

omfg ;)
Do not install 3rd party kexts!
Use vanilla (original apple)!
Must always boot in x32
X3100 not yet support 64bit

If you stuck on black screen when booting, download DSDT PATCHER GUI and patch your snow partition

Yeah, I can't even get a dsdt.aml file. dsdt gui always kicks back an error and the file it does create is un-editable using iasl because it is zero kb in size.
Any clues on how to get one?

Also, it looks like the gmax3100 doesn't have the proper drivers for 64bit. so im stuck in 32bit for the time being. not that it really matters I don't have any hardware that would really take advantage of it anyways. anyway to edit my boot.plist or other file to set it to boot 32bit w/o having to type -x32 at the boot prompt everytime?
