i tried building chameleon from svn... GraphicsEnabler now seems to do something and with that i can load original 10.7.3 Intel HD kexts but the screen is completely messed up! 1366x768 graphics mode doesn't work at all, with 1280x800 i can see something but there is plenty of horizontal lines, with 1024x768 the screen is replicated 4 times and everything is scrambled.



would you mind sharing your bootfile?

Chameleon 2.1svn-r1902 ErmaC branch


From a quick inspection - the only difference from trunk version is that ID for IntelHDGraphics is added whose only benefit is to show right name of the card when bootloader is loaded. How did you draw any conclusion that something useful is done for intelhd?

i never said that, i'm not a developer, i don't know what it's changed... but i can see that now intelgraphicshd.kext and intelgraphicshdfb.kext load without kp, so i think that something is happening.........

Yes, but why has he got the native resolution in the VESA table and we no? Maybe an EFI String, a module, a patch for Chameleon because it detect the native resolution not the Mac.

Because the vendor of his mainboard/notebook actually cared and customized it, instead of just using the intel provided sample code.
He doesn't need EFI strings or kexts, he will always get the max. resolution in his VESA table.

thanks for your reply. So we have no chance to get native resolution! But i have also a dedicated video card (5470M) which is full supported by OS X but i can't activate it because my notebook boots up with Intel HD. Anyway a Youtube User made a video where he shows the functionality of his Hackintosh. The model of his notebook is not mine but it is also a G62.
Here's the video:

I tried to answer some informations to activate 5470M video card but he doesn't reply.
Please analise the video.
Bye,

You must enable QE/CI. That's not possible in Lion, only SL for now. Can you tell me the steps you use to get native resolution please?
Thanks,

just installed the kexts with kext Kext Utility.

and added my native res to com.apple.Boot.plist.
1-Open terminal
type:

sudo -s

insert password.
2- Type:

sudo pico /Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/com.apple.Boot.plist


in com.apple.Boot.plist add this files:

<key>Graphics Mode</key><string>1280x1024x32</string>
<key>GraphicsEnabler</key><string>Yes</string>


1280x1024x32 is my native res.
save it
close it

download install last chameleon bootloader.
i have installed:

Why can´t we just take manors VESA-tables and insert them in our system?? Is there no way to let chameleon insert local vesa tables??

With 10.8 runs much better?
still no video on youtube. Do you have video on youtube manor?

and manor you need to write some kind of tutorial. Just droping files here its not enough, people get confused and no one understands how to use your work.
So if you can try to write a simple tutorial. It would help lots of people im shure.

PS: I am stuck with this laptop for 3 years now and believe me when i say: There will never be true qe/ci on this card. It would take months for someone to port drivers. And that is just insane. Nobody did it, nobody will do it, well maybe someone can find a way to tweak other drivers to work with this card but anything beyond that will not happen im shure.

Sorry guys

Hello Manor,

First of all, sorry about my bad english, i´m from Brazil.

Well, i have a Sony Vaio VPCEA23FB with almost same configs of your laptop described here. I really need to install OSX on my lap for working with audio programs. I can install Lion 10.7.2 with iatkos l2 DVD. I got everything working but intel HD graphics. I have installed all yours drivers, and with one of then the video driver its better than before.

I saw yours screenshots running 10.8 with full resolution and recognized intel HD. Can you explain me the steps for make it? I really need so much.

My specs:

- Vaio VPCEA23FB
- i3 330m (busratio=16)
- HM55 chipset
- 4Gb Ram DDR3
- intel HD Graphics 5700 iron lake (arrandale) 0x0046 (like yours)

So, i can't get native resolution. But, i have also a dedicated video card: can someone tell me how to activate it? Please it's very important because my dedicated card is fully supported by OS X but i can't boot up in OS X with it, only with integrated unless i do a BIOS modification.

Hi,

I unsuccesfully tried to adjust my resolution and intel 8086:0046 hd graphics arrandale problems using this topic. I have a samsung qx410 and so also an geforce 310M.
I dumped my bios and edited it to show all possible settings. One of them is changing primary display into PEG and the resolution settings. Also muxing settings and optimus settings are avalaible. But I am too scared to flash it.

EDIT:
I think I figured out how we all can get custom resolutions. We need to edit the vbios with the intel BMP (binary modification program) utility to add resolutions, flash it and go..
See: http://wenku.baidu.c...2fb4da4ca3.html

and download location: http://edc.intel.com...re/Default.aspx

Edit 2: Mano could you maybe provide us your vbios, we could compare it if we dont get the intel bmp?

The problem: we don't have access.

Doesn't work, neither does patching the vbios at boottime work unfortunately.

It would be worth taking a look at the Intel BMP, but afaik it's only available for developers.

But even if we get full resolution to work, there is still no real acceleration available, and ci/qe is unstable at best.
