I'm wondering if you didn't anything specific to get the graphics to work.
Do you have native resolution and QE/CI?
If so, what smbios did you use? Any DSDT mods?



Just got a E6320 with no Nvidia, only Intel HD graphics.

Lion is installed and updated to 10.7.1

Not working:

Keyboard mouse (will try other kext here shortly)
Graphics are detected but I'm getting tearing.
Haven't tried power or CPU settings testing yet.

I'm a huge noob at this so I'll keep my chatter to a minimum here and let you guys know if something does/doesn't work as I go at this.

Hey guys,

I have managed to install Lion on my work laptop, which is an E6520 (obviously!) but I can't get the HD3000 to work. I don't have any discrete graphic card unfortunately, only the crappy Intel HD setup.
I managed to have 1024x768 w/o QE/CI.
My e6520 has a Quadcore I5-2520M 2.5Ghz which means Intel HD3000+.
Given that the HD 3000+ device id is 0x126, it should work out of the box, since similar to the new Mac mini setup.
I tried a couple of fixes like hex editing the hex editing the AppleIntelSNBGraphicsFB kext to modify the number of connectors but it didn't help. I tried only enabling the LVDS connector for instance ... didn't help.

I'm curious to know if anybody else managed to get it to work...


Happy hacking.
