  1. I've installed the SVGA driver and the auto fit patch, but I can't seem to get auto fit to work in VMWare Player 6.1 and Mavericks guest. When I resize to full screen for example, it will look perfect for about 2-seconds, then will resize to the original windowed size within the fullscreen to where it looks like one screen on top of the other and the mouse cursor doesn't line up with the screen. Anything I can try? The advice in post #192 checks out, and I also tried the advice in post #194. Also tried re-installing Vmware Tools, the driver, and patch, but it still does the same thing.

  3. Sounds like the description in the OP and the script are to install Mavericks from scratch. Is it possible to upgrade an existing 10.8 VM in VMware Player 6? I attempted to just do an app store upgrade, but it fails to boot, resulting in an infinitely spinning color pinwheel. I did add this to my .vmx file, but it didn't seem to help. cpuid.1.eax = "0000:0000:0000:0001:0000:0110:1010:0101" I also made this change: virtualHW.version = "10" guestOS = "darwin13-64" No joy. Is installing from scratch the only way to make it work? UPDATE: Might have posted this too soon. Changed this: smc.present = "FALSE" to smc.present = "TRUE" I have no real thought process for changing it, I was just changing stuff randomly and that happened to work. It booted and is installing. Not sure if it'll work, guess I'll find out in 45-minutes. UPDATE2: It worked. Did not need the cpuid.1.eax line. UPDATE3: Kernel panics on shutdown. When I reboot, it says the kernel panic had something to do with a "double fault". Any ideas? UPDATE4: Fix for UPDATE3 was to turn smc.present back to FALSE. Everything now seemingly A-OK.
  4. I've read that X1300 Lion drivers will work on Mountain Lion 10.8. I've searched here and Google for quite some time and have not come across a download link for X1300 Lion drivers. Anyone know where I can download them?

    [Partial Fix] Intel GMA950 for OS X 10.8

    I tried this with 10.8.2 on an old Jetway J9F2-KHDE motherboard. It boots and detects 1920x1200 resolution, shows the gray login wallpaper and mouse cursor, but no login. Does this problem sound familiar to anyone?

    Fix Lion 10.7.2 on VMware

    Thanks, that did the trick!

    Fix Lion 10.7.2 on VMware

    I have the same problem, worked once after I put the older .kext in, but no longer works in subsequent reboots.
  8. I've read there's some success with the GMA HD 3000 on high-end Sandy Bridge Core i processors, and these techniques that work don't work with HD 2000. Where does the GMA HD Graphics fall in that you would find on Sandy Bridge Celeron (G440, G530, G540) and Pentium Dual Core (G620) processors? Is it the same as the GMA HD Graphics on the 1st gen Core i, or is it something completely different?

    Lion compatibility with single core CPU?

    Just thought I'd update this thread since I finally got around to installing Lion on top of Snow Leopard. It didn't seem to care that my CPU is only single core and it has installed fine and works great. I have to boot with arch=i386 to get all resolutions and QE/CI to work just because GMA950 only has 32-bit kexts (or something like that), but the way I installed Lion using an install partition and xMove didn't care about number of cores at all. I didn't have to edit anything.
  10. The Foxconn H67S Mini-ITX is a decent price at Newegg. I'm thinking about replacing my Jetway J9F2-KHDE with it. One problem with my Jetway is no matter what I tried, I couldn't get the DVI or HDMI working with QE/CI and all resolutions, only 1024x768. I had to stick to VGA which is not as sharp, and I needed to build a custom DSDT.aml just to get that working. It's also very limiting in that I HAVE to use Chameleon because I get no video after boot under [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] or UserDSDT. Chameleon is fine, but that's just an example of how touchy my current setup is. GMA950 also doesn't have 64-bit drivers (I don't think) which I can see as also limiting in the future. Not having DVI or HDMI working also eliminates the possibility of a multi-monitor setup. Will both outputs of the H67S work simultaneously under Lion? I'm mainly after dual monitor extended mode, preferably something that needs as little customization as possible.
  11. My hackintosh is running Snow Leopard and has a Celeron M 520 single-core CPU. It's a Merom core and supports MMX, SSE, SSE2, SSE3, SSSE3, Intel 64, XD bit. Snow Leopard reports it as a Core 2 Solo. It looks like the only requirement not fulfilled is the need for dual core. Can this run, or be made to run Lion? I've read that removing PlatformSupport.plist might allow it to run on unsupported platforms, but really curious if it can run on single core.

    About This Mac logs off

    Anyone? Anyone? Bueller?
  13. I have 10.6.1 installed. I installed to a clean drive from OSInstall.mpkg with FakeSMC.kext, NullCPUPowerManagement.kext, PlatformUUID.kext and OpenHaltRestart.kext into /System/Library/Extensions. I have no idea if I need all those kexts, but the tutorial said to install them so I did. I do have a DSDT.aml which is required to make my GMA950 work. When I go to "About This Mac", it goes to blue screen and logs me off. Bootloader is Chameleon v2 RC3. For some reason, it doesn't recognize anything in /Extras, I put SMBios.plist in there and that doesn't help. I've tried several SMBios.plists as well as making my own. No luck. The only thing that works is installing AppleSMBIOSEFI.kext into /System/Library/Extensions, but it only works for the 32-bit kernel. In fact, I tried creating Extensions in my /Extras folder, and can't seem to load kexts from there. Is there some magic I missed in the tutorial for installing Snow Leopard that enables the /Extras folder? Isn't SMBios.plist supposed to take the place of AppleSMBIOSEFI.kext? Motherboard is Jetway J9F2-KHDE.
  14. X3. I have the same problem with my Jetway J9F2-KHDE with Leopard and now Snow Leopard 10.6.1. I just stick to VGA, but I would REALLY like to get DVI or HDMI working.

    Any drivers for GMA950 on Snow leopard?

    Is there any way to get the source for this kext and recompile it as 64-bit? I'm interested to try, but just curious if it has been done yet. I hate to reinvent the wheel.
