anymore news? i still cant get my system to install 10.6.4.. dono why i keep cannot boot inside once i upgrade from 10.6.3..



I spent half an hour to read this topic.It's really good job!

@sockerkid: Do you have a discrete graphic card? My laptop have GMAHD and Ati HD5650.If you have a discrete graphic card like HD5650 or something else.You should switch your graphic option in BIOS to 'discrete mode',the default value is 'switchable'.This will disable the GMAHD in Core i5.Then you can boot into 10.6.4 without any graphic acceleration and your resolution will stuck at 1024x768.

Hope it will help.

Applogize for my poor English.

So you guys are working on getting the Intel GMA HD graphics to work? I hope so because it seems that no one is willing to work on it and a lot of laptops are coming out with Intel GMA HD graphics. I own a laptop with it as well.

Well there is a person called TonyMacx86 and he created what appears to be ##### for Intel GMA HD. However it doesn't seem to work. Unfortunately there hasn't been any news about it and i'm guessing he abandoned the project.
If anyone wants to try it out and see if they can make it work, here's the link:

Hopefully that helps.

Any news on this?
Does anybody here already know what has to be done to make QE/CI work?

Dear sockerkid,
I am sorry to reply your mail late. Recent weeks I was very busy for works.

After read your post, I checked my x201i again. It seems that I lead you to wrong direction.
1. My system is 10.6.4 with 64 mode. 32 mode can't enter into the desktop.
2. Natit is not necessary. You can delete it.
3. You only need to add 00468086 in the info.plist of AppleIntelHDGraphicsFB.kext.

Summary: run 64 mode, only leave AppleIntelHDGraphicsFB.kext in the /S/L/E. Even no AppleIntelHDGraphics.kext
Try it.

My new find: AppleIntelHDGraphics.kext does not loaded. Even I delete AppleIntelHDGraphics.kext, the desktop is four.
So now I try to find a way to load AppleIntelHDGraphics.kext

If I have any news, I will tell you.

Dear George123,

hello there.. thanks for your reply here.. =).. i would go home and try later after i have finish my class and report back..

btw, do u make any changes to your dsdt.aml? can you make me a favour, can u still get 4 screen without the dsdt? thanks..

Edit : because i cant even get the desktop screen if i got appleintelHDgraphicsFB loaded.. if i remove the appleintelhdgraphicfb, i can get into the desktop..

PS: i didnt use an dsdt.. so i think your advantage is that u have ur dsdt patched to work.. btw, can u get the safari 5 to run? because without qe/cl, it wont run.. =)


Regards

Dear sockerkid,

dsdt.aml is not important for the 4 screen. I tried to delete every thing (including dsdt.aml, boot.plist, Appleintelgraphiccontrol.kext). The 4 screens are the same and no any changes.

You must delete 00428086 in the appleintelHDgraphicsFB.kext. ONLY leave 00468086. I am sure you can get 4 screens. Both32 & 64 mode.

Experience: If I leave appleintelHDgraphics.kext in the /S/L/E/ only. I can get normal screen without E/CI. In the kextload list, I can see appleintelHDgraphics.kext are loaded.
If I put appleintelHDgraphicsFB.kext in /S/L/E/, I will get 4 screens. In the kextload list, I only can see appleintelHDgraphicsFB.kext are load. The appleintelHDgraphics.kext are not loaded.
If we can load both kexts, I am sure we will succeed.

I have not tried SAFARI 5. I will try it later.

Cheers guys, I am following this thread with interest. I have an asus laptop with nvidia optimus switching, I have been able to get both intelhd and nvidia to show in system profiler. However, there is no kext loaded for intel and the nvidia is unknown, it shows device ID but no vram. The intel shows 64mb vram and no kext.

Dear All,

I tried again. I found that I have to use macbookpro smbios 6.1. And delete 0x428086 in AppleIntelHdGraphicsFB.kext.

Then I can get AppleIntelHdGraphicsFB.kext loaded. But it is 4 screens.

Attached File  smbios.plist.zip   969bytes   278 downloads

If I do not use 6.1 smbios.plist or change it to 6.2, I will get
Super IO:Probing NSC
Super IO:Probing ITE
Super IO:Probing Flintek
Super IO:Probing SMSC
Super IO:Probing Winbond
Super IO:No supported Super I/O chip has been detected!

So wait... does this mean that both appleintelHDgraphics.kext and appleintelHDgraphicsFB.kext are loaded? If they both are then thats good news right? Now the only problem here is that it keeps looking for the NVIDIA graphics adapter. I'm pretty sure there has to be a string so that it disables it. The problem is that maybe another file is causing it to look for the NVIDIA graphics adapter and it may be hard to narrow it down.

However keep up the good work George123 ;) . If you actually get the Intel GMA HD graphics to work (like having a different screen resolution instead of 1024x768) with or without QE... the community would gladly appreciate it. From the looks of it, it seems that your the only person who has done any progress into making the Intel GMA HD to work.

But please take your time... no need to rush :P .

Dear George123,
i have follow your instruction to get the driver working..

when i place the AppleIntelHdGraphics.kext into s/l/e, it doesnt load even i have deleted the 0042 and have my kext id correct.

then i place AppleIntelHdGraphicsFB.kext into s/l/e, same i cant get them to load i still can get into desktop with 1024 resolutiion..

then i place AppleIntelHdGraphicsGA.plugin into s/l/e, i get kernel panic..

after that i delete AppleIntelHdGraphicsGA.plugin, i can get desktop again..

then i try with AppleIntelHdgraphicsVA.bundle and AppleIntelHDGraphicsGL.bundle, again i get kernel panic..

Do you mind explain further which kext needed in order to get 4 screen?

Thanks,Appreciate that..

Regards..

Dear sockerkid,

In my opinion, only AppleIntelHdGraphicsFB.kext + smbios.plist (macbookpro6.1).
If I change 6.1 to 6.2 or what ever, I can't enter the desktop.
I looked inside of AppleGraphicsPowerManagement.kext, only macbookpro6.1 and macbookpro6.2 has 00468086.
I think smbios.plist is very important. Could you put my smbios.plist inside of 'Extra' and try again.

Dear All,

After many times trying. I know why the AppleIntelHdGraphicsFB.kext does not loaded. The problem is SMBIOS.plist.
If I set it to MacbookPro6,1 (here 6,1 is not 6.1), I can get 4 screens.
If I set it to others, I can't enter into the desktop.
I guess that Macbook6,1 is Nvidia +Intel 5700.
If we can find correct smbios.plist (macbook or macbook air with 5700 only), we can get correct resolution.

Please comments.

I give up! After 3 weeks of having my soul sucked by this problem i must hand it over to someone who ACTUALLY knows what they are doing.

Knowing that it SHOULD work has kept me on the challenge of trying all manners of combos, at one point i got 1 screen not 4, the sreen was a mess though, i actually have a 310m too but it is optimus switching and this seems to have its own problems, asus have kindly given bios option to disable nvidia but not the dammed intel gpu.

stuart

however, i will continue to test with nvidia switched off, lets hope someone gets qe/ci working on intelhd gma

Dear surfstu,
can u get the 4 screen to show up like george123 one?

Edit :
Dear George123,
bro.. i get black screen with AppleIntelHDGraphicFB.kext in the S/L/E..
but i think i have the desktop because i can hear the volume up and volume down sound when i press the shortcut.. But i have black screen.. Maybe i am having 1366 x 768 resolution? because my LCD support the resolution natively.. Maybe i will try change the resolution to see whether it works or not..

thanks..

i have not had 4 screens show up - just one messy screen and a few black screens where i was certain the desktop was loaded

i have now written to asus to ask if a bios update is due to allow me to disable the intel hd graphics!!!

We really need someone with mucho knowledge to be working on this to modify some of the appleintelhdgraphics kexts to stop them searching for nvidia and stay permantly in a state of intel gpu.

But i believe now that this may be impossible, because whilst apple were considering nvidia's optimus switching, they ended up using their own system for switching, and i have heard rumours that this may be done in hardware and not software, in which case we're going to see alot of doomed laptop owners as far as osx86 is concerned

Dear All,

I am going to stop for a while. I tried so many times. It seems that appleintelhdgraphicsFB.kext is a big problem. I will wait for 10.6.5 update. Because some body said that even real macbookpro has problem with the video card. I think Apple company will correct it in the next version.


stuart,

No matter it is one screen or 4 screen. Could you try to use SYSTEM PROFILER to check the kext load?

And a very useful link is http://www.insanelym...howtopic=208410

READ THIS:
6. Reboot, wait a while, or do whatever it takes to boot so the display is NOT right (stretched, wrong resolution, whatever). If your 'bad' display is so bad you cannot use it, first go to System Preferences -> Sharing, checkmark Screen Sharing, and enable a password under Computer Settings. Note the vnc:// address. Using a second computer, connect to the vnc:// address and continue the instructions remotely. If you're using Windows, use TightVNC.

I have not tried it. Because I can control my desktop in the mass screen. Hope you can find what it is loaded.

Just to let you guys know (if you didn't know), Tonymacx86 (creator of ##### & #####) has gotten himself a motherboard with Intel Core i3 and with Intel GMA HD Graphics. He says he'll be doing various tests in order to at least fix the screen resolution. I don't think QE is important at the moment.

I think he might be able to enable Intel GMA HD afterall since he does have experience in modifying kexts and getting other things to work. Give him the best of luck!

If you have any suggestions, you should tell him at the Tonymacx86 forum. The more help, the better the chance of getting Intel GMA HD to work, and more people to finally be able to Hackintosh their PC and dump Windows:
