Intel HD3000 using eDP (embedded display port)

14 October 2014 - 03:18 PM

This is more like a wish list for courageous competent devs...


My experience with trying to get Acer W700 with sandybridge hybrid HM77 with Intel HD3000 graphics ended up with failure on graphics because the LCD screen uses eDP instead of LVDS.


This is a stupid corner cutting decision by Acer, but I bought the Tablet, so I tried.


My experience of this are in these two threads:






If one can fool the Azul kext AppleIntelFramebufferAzul.kext into loading the 0x01168086 HD3000, that would be the trick to get eDP used, as Azul can deal with eDP connectors.


Any specialist comments on this?

On Dell Dimension 9200 with VoodooHDA Sigmatel 9277 + AMD HD 6850

31 October 2013 - 12:39 PM

About a year ago, I wrote of my experience setting up my ageing Dell Dimension 9200 in Snow Leo 10.6.8, Lion and Mountain Lion with

VoodooHDA Sigmatel 9277 + NVIDIA 450 GTS HDMI Sound

this involved modding DSDT.aml and VoodooHDA...


this time, I did the same thing with Mavericks (installed using the excellent MyHack package, thanks to its developper), but with a different video card: Asus AMD HD 6850...


I now got the sound working, video with full acceleration (in fact AMD 6xxx is easy to configure with the latest incarnation of Chameleon v2.2 svn r2266...


in the next post I wil write details of the sound settings which gave me some grief until I stumbled upon the latest versions of VoodooHDA (2.82 and 2.84) modded and improved by Slice...


you can already get the code of the Info.plist if you are in a hurry to get the Intel hidef and AMD hdmi sounds working:




otherwise, I am now tinkering with DSDT trying to improve settings for Mavericks on Dell Dimension 9200...

feel free to join in and comment, if interested...
