Hey guys,
I decided to test ML DP4 on my HackBook. I created a bootable USB installer the normal way (restoring BaseSystem.dmg, moving Packages folder, copying mach_kernel, add kexts & Cham). Just for testing purposes, I decided to NOT delete the Intel HD kexts in /S/L/E.
And it worked.
Well, not exactly. The screen is full of lines and you can't read it, but it at least boots up. In Lion, I would have to delete AppleIntelHDGraphics kexts or otherwise I would get stuck at the Apple logo. I don't know how this is working. I'm pretty sure that AppleIntelHDGraphics.kext is loaded, but I'm not sure. Here's a screenshot of what the screen looks like in the installer:

Again, it's not exactly full support, but at least the kext loads and I can boot the installer without deleting kexts.

Looks great to me, the mere fact you were able to upload that photo is impressive. You must be on the good server :) Besides once you've done enough of those installs you don't really need to see what your doing very well. Not like there is a ton of different options to choose from :) Hope the final install goes well!

I don't use InsanelyMac for images. I use imgur so I don't use up too much attachment space. I'll try this with the GM version that got released yesterday.

Hey RacerMaster, with Mountain Lion do you have native resolution? (i know you have distortion lines)

@giofrida: I'm not sure, but by the looks of it I think so. I am currently downloading the GM version of Mountain Lion and seeing if there are any changes.

Weird, I created a 10.8 GM installer, and I got the same graphical glitches as earlier.

@giofrida: I figured out why the kexts were loading for me. You MUST be using MacBookPro6,1 SMBios.plist for the kexts to load.

Same screen! Tried also to use a DSDT Patch to make our chipset more like Apple's chipset, nothing changed :(.

Deleted all the kexts of Intel HD & ATI. Loaded the kexts (except Intel HD kexts, If load screen remains same) from - http://www.insanelym...howtopic=281892 .
Card is recognised with 771MB ram and got a single resolution 1366x768.
Can play video, but screen goes black :( . Anyway all behaviours normal.

Thank you TheRacerMaster for your nice guide :)

Say, before I try this, I need to know... have any of you tried editing custom EDID? Refer to this guide - http://www.insanelym...splay-problems/

If I'm right, Mountain Lion may be able to use our Graphics Card once and for all!

We can try that, but we can find the vendor/device id of the lid only if Intel HD Graphics kexts are loaded, but, when they are loaded, the screen goes white with red/yellow stripes, and you cannot do anything!

Instead, if Intel HD Graphics kexts aren't loaded the vendor and device ids are generic (71716be...bla..bla).

So? Dunno.

I followed this guide, but did not solve my problem. My resolution remains at 1024x768. :(

I have i3 and Intel HD Graphics for 8086:0046
