Video - Efi - Injectors - and Enablers, oh my...

04 December 2010 - 02:52 AM

I have been trying to get my graphics working better on my hackintosh, but throughout all of my searching everything that I find is far too specific. I'm hoping that someone can explain to me a little better what all of these things mean.

My screen works fine, but I can't change the resolution. I have manually changed it by adding the whole 1280x1024x32@75 thing to my /Extra/com.apple.boot.plist but graphics still seem sub-par. For example, when I try to watch video in fullscreen I get unbelievable lag with the video (but not the audio.)

I keep reading about injecters and efi strings. Are these thing just hacks to get graphics working, or will they full on get my card working "properly". I have tried both but I must be doing something wrong because I never have to ability to choose from a list of resolutions or video that will work fullscreen. Here are my specs, thanks in advance everyone.

Snow leopard 10.6.2
Asus P5LD2 - Deluxe
Intel Pentium D
2gb of ram

this is what is displayed under "about my mac" for my graphics card

I know this information isn't always 100% right, so I have also included a picture of the sticker on my video card. The one major difference that I have noticed is that os x is picking up that I have 256 ram instead of 512.

Kernal Panic, can only boot in safe mode

26 November 2010 - 05:57 PM

(Sorry for the low quality of the photo, it was the best I could get)

I installed snow leopard via the "Snow Leopard 10 6 1 10 6 2 SSE SSE3 Intel AMD By Hazard" disc image. However, when I try to boot up I get the error in the picture above. I have installed using both dafault and lecacy kernels, all to no avail.

I though it might be an incompatible kext, but I tried manually removing all of the "non-standard" kexts, but still no success. I can boot up fine in safe mode though, I am faily new to this and I'm not really sure what that could mean.

Thanks in advance to anyone who tries to help me, heres my setup

asus P5LD2-deluxe motherboard
pentium D processor
2 GB ram
can't remember my video card off the top of my head (I would check but I'm at school atm) but I know its an nVidea card

ideneb 1.3 (10.5.5) problems on HP mini 110

16 November 2010 - 06:29 AM

I recently installed ideneb on my hp mini and most things are working. However, I'm still having a few problems and I'm hoping that someone will help make this mud a little clearer for me.

So, on all of the guides that I've read it tells you when using osx86 tools to install your hp mini essential kets to to include AppleIntelGMA950 and AppleIntelIntegratedFramebuffer kexts, not sure what the latter does but isnt the first one the video kext? I could not get my resolution above 800 x 600 or something gross like that. Then I installed those kexts and everything worked fine.

However, every time I tried to upgrade to 10.5.8 my video kexts seemed incompatible and I would get an unusable grey glitchy screen.

**For those who didnt install those kexts, how were you getting your resolution fixed? and how can i upgrade to 10.5.8 an not brick my install?

also, I was getting constant warnings that I was running on reserve battery when I obviously wasnt, so I installed PowerManagement.pkg and for a while it showed two batter icons, but now nothing shows up for a battery.

**Does anyone know how I can get my batter icon back?

Another issue that I have is that me trackpad well never work when I "wake up" my mini from sleeping. I'm using the voodoops2controller.

*Does anyone know how to make my trackpad work upon wake?

My last question is about partitioning.

**is it possible to use the disk utility to partition the drive that I am currently running osx off of to make a second partition to use as a time machine? before I try to fix these things I would like to make a backup because I've had to reinstall from the ground up like, 6 times.

Thanks so much in advance for your time!!! :)
