Hi janek202,

There is one issue that have caused me and I expect MANY others a lot of troubles.
And I think there is only one easy way to avoid the problem for now and that is in the org.chameleon.Boot.plist

The problem are multiple partitions and DSDT and that the DSDT are loaded from another partition when not found in the default partition.
Maybe there also are issues to witch DSDT that are loaded in a multi boot partition setup??

Even if I have set the "default partition" to "hd(0,3)" and have NO DSDT the DSDT found on "hd(0,2)" are loaded.

It took me a lot of time and trouble to find the cause to the unexpected errors and KP´s..


Can you add a setting to the Chameleon Wizard to select the DSDT and also unselect the DSDT by giving the correct commands in the org.chameleon.Boot.plist ??


Never mind janek202 ;)
The Chameleon v2.0.0 RC5 app had this and more included :thumbsup_anim:
And is easy to use as it is integrated in the System Preferences

Should be ok now. Update the Premade SMBioses database by clicking on the refresh button.


There is still an "bug" with the Chameleon Wizard app.

If the SMfamily name are written with a "M" in Mini either as "MacMini" or "Mac Mini" Chameleon Wizard displays the correct picture of a Mac mini.

If the SMfamily name are written with a "m" in mini either as "Macmini" or "Mac mini" Chameleon Wizard displays the picture of monitor and not the picture of a Mac mini.

In "about this Mac" / Systeminformation there is the correct picture and the text "Mac mini" so this works and it is only a display issue with Chameleon Wizard.

The issues with SMproduct was cured with the Macmini5,1 fix.

All translations included in the latest version.

Also added new feature: Premade SMBios and Serial generator updater. Now there's no need to update whole application only to add new items.


Is it possible to make some changes to the "GraphicsEnabler = Yes" function in org.chameleon.Boot.plist??
Intel HD2000 graphics with device id 0x01028086 are identified as "Unknown".

With "GraphicsEnabler = No" it is identified (wrongly?) as Intel HD3000..

Is it also possible to change the SMproductname from MacMini5,1 to Macmini5,1 in the smbios.plist generator??
For my setup the MacMini5,1 gives the picture of a monitor in both "about this mac" and in finder of other Mac´s.
Macmini5,1 gives the correct Mac mini picture in both instances.

The SMfamily name MacMini also gives some strange behaviors.
Macmini or Mac mini works better...

Thanks for the Chameleon Wizard :thumbsup_anim:

I use them as my itx build is spec wise identical to a mac mini 5,1 and my old one was an almost copy of the 3,1 one.
The 3,1 one has worked for almost 3 years now without issues!
For me it would be no problem getting all the different values for the MacBook air.
One final thing about mac mini 5,x, since the HD3000 can be made to work now using a macmini5,1 smbios does make a lot of sense. Just to bad I have HD2000 on my cpu now and that can't be made to work yet.


If you want to use the HD2000 without acceleration, but else full resolution and even dual / triple monitors you can do the following:

This is based on the standard 10.7.1 version of the AppleIntelxxGraphicxx kexts, the 10.7.1 update (updated / later build) for the Macmini5,1 AppleIntelxxGraphicxx kexts are not tested yet...

0. Enable screen sharing as the very first thing you do and verify that it works - then you can later connect and fix any problems as if the connector tables are wrong or do not match you motherboard you will get stuck in various variants of the grey boot screen.. The system are still up and running, but only have not connected properly to the motherboard connectors, but screen sharing works...
1. Use "Graphics Enabler = No" with Chameleon Wizard (/E/org.Chameleon.Boot.plist)
2. Use Macmini5,1 in the smbios.plist (change the MacMini text string to Macmini to get proper representation in the SystemInformation and in finder of other Mac´s)
3. Remove the device id (0x01028086 or what your system shows as the id) from the Gen6 - IOPCIPrimaryMatch string in the info.plist /S/L/E/AppleIntelHDGraphics.kext
4. In the info.plist of the /S/L/E/AppleIntelSNBGraphicsFB.kext - the device id (0x01028086) should only be found in the IOPCIPrimaryMatch of the AppleIntelSNBGraphicsController2 section and NOT in the AppleIntelSNBGraphicsFB section..
NB! the device id should be found ONLY once in this info.plist...
5. If the display connectors do not work properly with your motherboard - inject the proper data with this method:
http://www.tonymacx8...hp?f=15&t=30464
6. In the BIOS setup allocate the maximum amount of shared RAM to the HD2000/3000 graphics

Now the HD2000 should work with full resolution and the IORegistryExplorer and SystemInformation should display it as a Intel HD3000 with 512MB (8GB system RAM), 384MB (4GB system RAM) or 288MB (2GB system RAM).
If you use "Graphics Enabler = Yes" it will be displayed as a "unknown GPU" so Chameleon do not work properly with the device id´s of the HD2000 yet...

The majority of motherboards cannot assign the full 512MB shared RAM so to avoid graphics distortion / glitches you can reduce the system RAM so the BIOS setup of shared RAM and the rapported use of VRAM match...
This is a motherboard issue / fault as there are motherboards around that can assign up to above 1600MB to the Intel HD graphics..
