No joy so far. I'm going to stick with my original installation and replace the current problem kexts with the updated AppleIntelHD* kexts.

I completed my re-install and moved AppleIntelHD* kexts to boot successfully. I used Kext beast to re-install the AppleIntelHD* kexts, but the kexts continue to cause boot failure. Still looking for a fix.

Just for fun, use a boot flag of -v “GraphicsEnabler=No”

What version of Chameleon did you settle on?

When you were able to boot, did everything else seem to work?

Chimera 1.6 that was included with the iAtkos L2 iso worked the best. The USB drives are all working and sound is working with the VooDoo 2.7.3 option.

I got the graphics working using the very latest HD 3000 kexts located here: http://www.osx86.net...ics_latest.html

I installed them using Kext-beast. Now I'm going to work on tackling Wi-fi using a usb adapter. Your help has been awesome bro!

I couldn't even get the iAtkos L2 installation to boot until I read your solution yesterday.

Good job!


Thanks so much. Never would have got there without you.

Ammar555, if you're still out there... Were you able to replace your Intel HD kexts or are you still running it in a Vesa mode? I was just wondering if those same kexts would solve your graphics problem as well.

I had a Airlink 101 Golden N Wireless USB adapter laying around and figured I should try it before buying a new wireless adapter. I Installed the Realtek Wireless Utility and configured it to run on startup. It works like a charm. I'm now typing from my very first hack connected wirelessly.

Awesome...

My track point is working now which is excellent! Super stoked. The only thing left to do is figure out how to dim the monitor and Everything will be working.

I did the complete install without the use of an existing Mac OS X installation. I will post the entire build as soon as I get the dimming feature fixed. I'll also give a shout out to all those who helped :)

Hello, I am back!

rlf, I have the pictures for the wireless card.

Here is my new list that I would like to fix, it doesn't have to be in order.

1: Change the Wireless Card [Working on it]
2: Be able to dim brightness [My eyes hurts after 10 mins, its too bright.]
3: Put the laptop to sleep [The screen turns black when I put it to sleep, but the laptop does not really sleep]
4: Change the resolution to standard [The current display doesn't look too good]


io anarchy oi, I will try the kexts some other time, and let you know about the results.

This thread started out with ammar555 having the problem with Lion where he would boot and he would get a black screen. He has HD 3000 graphics. Examining the problem in verbose mode (-v), it was discovered that the boot was frozen at "DSMOS has arrived". This means that the installation has booted but there is a graphics problem. To temporarily get around that and to boot with VESA drivers, the AppleIntel* kexts were removed from /S/L/E.

After a lot of work, ammar555 has successfully booted with working HD 3000 graphics. The solution boiled down to what has been stated before. If you have the correct smbios.plist in your Extra folder, then Lion should boot and the HD 3000 graphics should work. Which it did. Now ammar555 had two problems. There was a frequent kernel panic on boot and when it booted, there were artifacts on the screen (pink boxes). It seems that booting in 32-bit mode using arch=i386 solved both of those problems.

About the "correct" smbios.plist. If your graphics card has a device id of 0112 then you need a smbios.plist with MacBookPro8,1. If your device id is 0116, then the smbios.plist should be MacBookPro 8,3.

Yes, you can use the Terminal program in the install DVD. It will change a couple of commands and you must know the name of your Mac partition. If you don't remember the exact name of the Mac partition, go into Disk Utility and look it up.



Open Terminal

At the prompt,

Type:  cd "/Volumes/(name of your Mac partition)"   <== use the quote marks but not the parentheses
Type:  ls	<== this lists the files and directories

If you DON'T see a file named "mach_kernel", you need to try again
If you DO see a file named "mach_atom", you need to try again

Type:  cd System/Library/Extensions
Type:  mkdir IntelBack
Type:  mv AppleIntelHD* IntelBack/
Type:  mv AppleIntelSNB* IntelBack/

Reboot -v -f

Hi.
I get "Read only file system" when try mkdir IntelBack..
please help me.

It looks like you missed following my clues that I put in there:
1. Make sure you are spelling the name of your Mac disk correctly - use quotation marks but not the parentheses
2. Type: LS
If you DON'T see a file named "mach_kernel", you need to try again.
If you DO see a file named "mach_atom", you need to try again

Now all of the above was using the Terminal on the Install DVD. We did this because the member had trouble booting in single-user mode (-s).
If you can boot in single-user mode (-s), then you can do it a little differently and maybe more reliably:

Boot -s

Wait for the prompt "root:"

Type:  mount -uw /
Type:  cd /System/Library
Type:  touch Extensions
Type:  cd Extensions
Type:  mkdir IntelBack
Type:  mv AppleIntelHD* AppleIntelSNB* IntelBack/

Boot -v -f

I'm a noob at Linux.

type "cd /Volumes/MAC"
type "ls", I can see a file named "mach_kernel"

type "Boot -s", it shows "unknown command"


type "mount -uw /"

type "cd /System/Library/Extensions"
type "pwd", it shows "/System/Library/Extensions"
type "ls", I can see some AppleIntelHD* and AppleIntelSNB* filenames.
type "mkdir IntelBack", it shows "Read-only filesystem".
So I erase MAC partition and reinstall MAC OS. Now I can't see AppleIntelHD* and AppleIntelSNB* at /System/Library/Extensions. Maybe I didn't tick something at Customize.

This worked flawlessly and I thank you soooooooo much!

Hello, is it possible to resume this topic? I have this problem:

Only 64 MB shared memory on HD 3000... I can't load the kest... "" About the "correct" smbios.plist. If your graphics card has a device id of 0112 then you need a smbios.plist with MacBookPro8,1. If your device id is 0116, then the smbios.plist should be MacBookPro 8,3.  "" ..because with iAtkos ML2 if I set MacBook Pro 6.1 and I install with Intel Graphics the installation work but at the end I have Black Screen and sound ecc.... If I don't install Intel I have graphics but no kext and only 64 Mb shared..... What to do? May be install with no kext than change to MacBook Pro 8.3 and than install the kexts?
But exactly what kext I have to install and how many they are? Any idea? Thanks....
