    Intel HD Graphics / i7 2600

    hmm, I will be trying this over the next couple of days. I was going down the imac route as well but perhaps MBP2011 is better... May be need to match HD3000 GPU frequency as well. 10.6.8 is unlikely as there is no HD2000 in any mac as yet. will report back.

    AnVAL (ACPI Loader)

    Hi all. I installed 10.6.7 on a Sandy Bridge system (GA-H67N-USB3-B3 + Core i3-2100) using a auto-patched DSDT. It's all Vanilla and the only two Macbook Pro 2011 specific files are the 10.7.3 kernel and and the AppleIntelCPUPowermanagement.kext. All the rest is 10.6.3 retail + regular 10.6.7 combo update. In the BIOS all CPU powermgt settings are set to enabled, with 30x busratio (lower multi's does not make a difference and default multi 31x gives reboot loop). I did specify a busratio and maxcpuspeed in smbios.plist but this does not seem effective. The system works great though, including auto-sleep and everything seems to be loading up nicely, with Cstat and Pstat info visible in IOReg (see attachment). However, Pstates is not working, with "CPU: Attempting to enable IDA: Failed!" showing in bdmesg (attached). Another important error from the kernel log (attached) is: "kxld[com.apple.kpi.unsupported]: This symbol set has the following unresolved symbols: _lapic start" I am also puzzled why "Mac Pro" is mentioned in various places despite the Macbook Pro 8,1 sysdef in smbios.plist Despite spending numerous hours on many powermgt related threads I am without clues as to where to start to get to the root cause of this. From looking at the attached files, hopefully someone feels challenged to come up with a good hint how to enable p states? this would make the system 100% perfect!! PS I am using ^Andy^ boot file which merges Anval 5.1.4 (shown on boot) with recent code from Kabyl and MBP2011 ATI kexts. [EDIT:] In the meantime I tried a number of things, which all did not make any difference at all, so I am beginning to wonder if Anval 5.1.4 actually supports my CPU (Core i3-2100) properly. I tried: 1) use regular 5.1.4 (instead of Andy's merged one with Kabyl), 2) change sysdef into Mac Pro 3,1 or iMac 11,1, 3) use various busratios in BIOS between 20 and 30, 4) use 10.7.3 kernel in combination with 10.6.7 for MBP2011 versions of AppleIntelCPUPowermanagement.kext and AppleIntelCPUPowermanagementClient.kext, 5) confirm proper speedstepping of the system in Windows 7.

    Sapphire ATI HD 4670 - display problems with 10.6.6

    Other than the cooling solution I think my card might be identical to yours, so let me share my recent experience installing 10.6.6 on my Sandy Bridge configuration using H67 chipset and i3-2100 CPU. btw my card is: http://www1.sapphiretech.com/us/products/p...ew.php?gpid=279 Using [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] legacy I had to install SL 10.6.3 retail using the onboard graphics as my Sapphire Ultimate HD4670 512 GDDR4 would show a black screen. To this end I configured my BIOS to initialise the onboard graphics first. As bootloader I installed (because of SB) a mixture of Kabyl's and Valv's Chameleon as compiled by ^Andy^ but I am sure Kabyl's most recent regular version should also work. You can find this in [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] 3.4 In the process of using Andy's bootloader I decided to install his full package which also contains the ATI kexts from 10.6.7 MBP 2011 update. Again, I think this should work just as well with the regular ATI kexts in 10.6.6 as 10.6.7 probably only adds support with the latest ATI cards. His package can be found here: http://www.mediafire.com/?r52bv1otbovc9ci After changing the BIOS to initialise the PCI-E graphics first (ATI card) and rebooting into the fresh install I again had a black screen until connecting to the 4670's DVI port using a DVI-VGA adapter. Directly connecting to VGA while leaving the DVI-VGA adapter attached also worked. All of this ofcourse using GraphicsEnabler=Yes. Default enabled framebuffer for my card was Flicker. When using the bootflag AtiConfig=Motmot I managed to get both the VGA and HDMI working perfectly, also in dual screen and with full CI/QE. So I moved this flag to my boot.plist to make it permanent. The DVI-VGA adapter is no longer required. I did not have a chance to test DVI, but HDMI audio is not working so I may try the VoodooHDA solution at the expense of the onboard ALC889 sound. I haven't yet tried updating to 10.6.7 Not sure if this is important to mention but I used a auto-patched DSDT for my board... Hope this helps. [edit: using Graphicsenabler=Yes without specifying a framebuffer results in Flicker, with VGA monitor detection on the DVI port (using DVI>>VGA adapter) but output on the VGA port. Therefore I have a black screen on VGA monitor on DVI. When hotplugging from DVI>>VGA to VGA (while leaving DVI>>VGA adapted attached to DVI) it works well until screen detection resets the VGA to VESA modes only. Trying to load another framebuffer does not result in loading Motmot as suggested above but loads the default Radeonframebuffer. This works great but DVD-player and Geekbench crash]

    AMD 690G Chipset Problem

    Hi, I want to try things out on my Asus M2A-VM HDMI as well. Did you manage to boot with sATA drive in IDE or AHCI mode? Did you get anything else to work (sound, USB, network...)? The 690G platform will become very popular, so worst case it is just a matter of time before things will work smoothly.
