Hello,

I've been trying to install Lion 10.7.3 on Dell XPS M1330 for a while now. I can succesfully install and run it on 64 bit mode but without the proper screen resolution.

This laptop has a Intel x3100 (GMA 965) graphics. To be able to obtain correct resolution, I tried to apply these http://www.osx86.net...ma965_lion.html but never been able to boot to 32 bit (arch=i386) mode.

I have the latest Chameleon installed on the system (v2.2svn r2181).

I tried many boot flags including npci=0x2000, PCIRoot=1 etc with no luck :( I have also attached a screetshot of the KP.

Does anyone has a suggestion for me?

BTW, I also tried to replace AppleACPIPlatform.kext and IOPCIFamily.kext with legacy ones.

I would suggest trying an older Chameleon...I'm using v2.1 r2069 with my X3100 graphics in 32-bit mode. I've never booted in 64-bit :)

Are you also using M1330? or it's just the graphics card that's matching?

What are your kernel flags?

Which extensions do you use?

Sorry for so much questions? :)

Nope...Lenovo T61 laptop.

I am not at my laptop now, so I can't tell you exactly what Kexts and boot flags I'm using. However, I started off my build by using this guide:

Later tonight I'll post my specific information.

Ok I've got one step further, now I am running 10.7.5 on this machine.

It still boots normally, still wrong resolution, but this time, when I switch to 32 bit mode, the displays goes to sleep after boot, just before I see the desktop.

I am now using these kexts:
http://www.osx86.net...nd_qe-c_...html

Any ideas?

What resolution is your monitor? You might need a special DSDT edit or EDID inject.

Thank you CoBrA2168,

AFAIK, the monitor is natively 1280x800, the DSDT I am using is from this topic:
http://www.insanelym...-and-xps-m1730/

It's the one named : DSDT_M1330_NVIDIA_ANYCPU_20111029.zip

This does not have Nvidia injection thus I thought I could use it.

Do you have any ide how to inject EDID or how to edit DSDT accordingly?

You may need to follow the EDID inject from this guide:
http://www.insanelym...splay-problems/

However, I wouldn't know why you can't get the correct resolution. I suggest installing again with the stock x3100 kexts. All you need to replace from the pack you linked to in the first post is the one labeled "FrameBuffer"
