#1746765 [Half-solved] Dell N7110 aka Inspiron 17R

Posted by KWODO on 10 September 2011 - 01:21 PM

Snow Leopard 10.6.3 to 10.6.7 will work without any hardware acceleration. (GE=NO !) After updating to 10.6.8 you'l never see the desktop anymore! KP at startup or reset. Tested with latest Chameleon and Chimera Bootloader and all combination of kernel flags/GraphicsEnabler etc... Lion 10.7.0 runs with hardware acceleration on Intel HD Graphics 3000.... but you have to deal with stretched screen (half screen visible) and artifacts! Same behavior with Hex-String or Chimera GraphicsEnabler=Yes (After Nvidia Unknown 0MB NVc1 was found.. wait 1-2 mins, then it will find Intell HD 3000 and will go on.) Dell Notebooks (N7110+N5110, perhaps others too) can only Boot MBR formatted HDD's !!! Use MBR-fixes on OS X Installer ...##### Legacy Bootcd can startup Snow Leo 10.6.3 Installer...(GE=NO) ...Chimera 1.5.4 can startup Lion / Lion Installer (GE=YES or GE=NO...same result.. QE/CI and stretched screen) Changes between GE YES and NO: (0x01168086) GE=NO......
