OK, i made some progress on this Vaio: with the new files I was able to boot within my internal hard disk, but only after editing com.aplle.Boot.plist and disabling GraphicsEnabler, so my resolutin is stuck at 1024x768. If I enable it, boot stuck with the following message: ATI card posted, reading VBIOS from legacy space




Is there any solution to force correct resolution?

Yes thats normal, thats because there is no kext for our video cards on mac os x yet, but full 1366x768 resolution shauld still work. try this copy the files from my first video to your mac os x partition and click yes to replace all, then copy the files from my new video and press yes to replace all, then go to /Extra/apple.boot.plist and under where it says graphics enabler make sure it says no and under kernel flags make sure it say busratio=8 cpus=1 arch=i386 maxmem=4096. then save and close. after that there shauld be another file in the extra folder named preboot. open that up/mount it and inside of that there shauld be another file named apple.boot.plist. delete it and then eject the preboot image and restart your laptop.

no i figured it out. open the extra folder then mount the preboot folder and open it inside shauld be another extra folder, open that up aswell and delete if there the apple.boot.plist file and past this one inside instead. then eject preboot and restart. it might not work on the first attempt but just keep trying at least 2 times

Nothing.
I think the only hope for our Vaio is a modified ATI kext...

Unable to boot without apple.boot.plist
I don't know where is my error...
is there anyone able to install snow leopard with correct resolution?

P.S. maybe the wrong resolution is correlated with chameleon rc5?

the HP most likely has a different VESA mode table then the Vaio...aka different video bios. so that makes the 1366x768 mode unavailable. I've tried numerous boot files, plist entrie, kexts etc. and 1366x768 doesn't work. If someone has gotten it to work on the amd e350 sony vaio, upload a video to prove it because it isn't possible from what I've tried.

yeah i nwas thinking the same thing, some of sony bios'es have restriction on the vga, not sure about the vaio yb but others do, same goes for the asus 1215b which also runs on the e350 which had a restriction to only like 256mb of vram while the hp dm1z had around 4096gb video ram.

@aussieman09:
Hi, I saw your video and posts about solving general ATI graphics problem, BUT let me say this..
The only thing that you have done is simply having full resolution in your HP DM1Z, and like for the rest of AMD E-350 powered laptops (like this VAIO), it's a very simple task.
The real challenge here is to make the AMD 6310 graphics FULLY working with QE/CI !!!

I hope this VAIO YB will be much more Hackintosh friendly about internal display and graphics...
For another time I suggest you all trying OSX Lion because it installs in about 20 minutes and it has better support for AMD graphics chip as you know! :)

Unfortunately I haven't yet this little beautiful VAIO.. :rolleyes: So i can't test things out.

oi Yeah omg installing Lion what an amazing idea...oh thats right its impossible becasue theres no amd kernel yet,lol. sorry if this comment comes of rude but yeah hopefully someone figures out how to get the ati 6310 working fully, and yeah i mentioned that my method is not to enable video acceleration just to get full resolution. thank you
