I'am able to boot 10.6.8 32 bit with full resolution (using AppleIntelIntegratedFramebuffer.kext)
I am also able to boot it 64 bit, with full resolution (using the AppleIntelIntegratedFramebuffer.kext from 10.6.2 as that version is 32/64-bit)
so basically I'm a happy camper
however in 64 bit full resolution the cursor is a little messed, (guessing that is a minor issue, I have done no work on that).
The biggest problem is when I'm using 64-bit it says in System Profiler "64-bit kernel and extensions" "Yes". However when I'm swapping the RAM, it simply won't boot 64-bit using 4 GB of RAM, now I'm doubting that it even runs 64-bit when it tell it does. Can anyone confirm this? Or tell me what's going on..
(don't know if QE/CI is enabled with 10.6.2 driver, how can I check this?)
It hangs at "IOAPIC version 0x20 vectors" (cpus=1, cpus=2 & cpus=4 boot args don't work).
A (perhaps) minor detail, I have to hit the "any button" one time at boot, when it says "Running on a 10.2.0+ kernel" (this only occurs 64-bit with this kernel, 32 bit just boots) don't know what this means, anyone?
I' so close now, either to have a running OS X 10.6.8 64-bit full resolution, or simply giving up the history of my project:
my primary OS is Linux, only doing this because a friend of mine offered me this PC for free, gf is all apple so I figured this PC would be perfect to boot OS X and Windows 8.. Or not.. Maybe it becomes just another Linux box in the end.. Cheers (no beer drinkin' smiley? are you kiddin' me?)
