You must delete every single graphics kext. All intelHD kexts. All ATI kexts. ALL GEFORCE kexts. Since you have switchable graphics, your video card will more than likely never work. Should have got dedicated. If you can't uninstall kexts via the -s flag on startup, boot into windows and try deleting kexts using Transmac. If you need a "link" PM me.

Looks to me like it's trying to load kext's for hardware you don't have, namely the Nvidia stuff

Did you get the sound working? And if so what did you use (also what did you remove)? Will it be the same in VMware or do you need to use special kexts/drivers for VMWare?
