  1. Internal Screen Not Working, But VNC Works Fine

    Any ideas?
  2. I have a hackintosh EP121. As stated in the topic my internal screen is not working, but I can VNC fine without a problem. Booting in verbose mode, the verbose output will stay on the screen and update while I VNC into the machine. Booting without verbose mode, the screen stays on the Apple Bootup screen with the Apple Logo and Async icon. The system is using AppleIntelHDGraphics kexts, if I remove them, the internal screen works fine with 1024x768x32. The problem is that I need to use these kexts for the system, so removing them is a no. If I could just get the UI to load on the internal screen this would solve my problem. For info on the machine, kextstat, ect... Peak at this link here where I've been updating my progress. http://www.tonymacx86.com/viewtopic.php?f=34&t=12590&start=100
  3. intel hd graphics cards success 10.8

    http://www.tonymacx86.com/viewtopic.php?f=34&t=12590&start=110 Checkout the last 2 pages to see what I've been trying. I'm noticing the major problematic kext here is AppleIntelHDGraphicsFB.kext , leaving all original kexts intact and removing that one causes the internal VGA to load but it's a mess of a screen, lines all over the place, unreadable by the human eye. If someone wants to decompile the binary and send it over I'll be glad to attempt to tamper with it. It seems like that's really the only hope here, loading NVIDIA kexts isn't going to get us QE/CI, which I'm sure is what we all want aside from the resolutions.
  4. How exactly did you decompile these? I have a EP121 as well and currently have QE/CI enabled on Snow Leopard 10.6.8. I have an idea of how to get it ported and working for Lion, but it's going to take some time. I also code for a living, so coding might be an option if someone points me in the right direction. Basically we need to get QE/CI working on a computer with Intel HD Graphics (which I currently have on SL), decompile the working drivers there to see what's going on, then attempt to inject/patch the newer extensions with that old method. May be doable may not be. Here goes a screen shot for the doubters. This is an EP121.

  8. In my system preferences my Linksys USB Adapter is showing up as a dialup modem with a red signal meaning it's dead. In wireless utility I get device not found. I'm using iATKOSir2. I went out and bought the same Linksys USB Adapter you have, because I too have a 6710b and am hoping to get some internet here. But no luck. Any ideas ?

    Well you want to give it a shot at fixing it? I'll send over my logs if it'll help any....

    Anyone have any luck with a Compaq 6710b or another system similar?

    I tried this, if you let it keep pinging it will eventually crash out. It's the mac address, plain and simple. Now you can set the MAC address in the Network Configuration.kext, but on reboot it will automatically revert back to the original. Does anyone know if there's a way to lock this up with your mac address manually inserted? If so this could be the solution.

    Any chance of anyone explaining how to pull this off for a Compaq 6710b ? I tried using the version put out out for the dv model, but it just locks up the laptop. I really need to get this to work, any help would be greatly appreciated.

    I can't say you're completely wrong, but you are somewhat wrong. I can actually get on the internet and surf the web, but only for a minute before it crashes the system. If I try to set the Mac address it crashes the same as if I try to surf the web for a few minutes, which is making me think it's attempting to get the MAC address. But I could be wrong, I'm only guessing.

    Okay well after looking more into the issue, it's undoubtedly the Mac Address. As soon as I attempt to set the Mac Address via Terminal (sudo -s; (password); ifconfig en0 ether (my mac address)) the system immediately locks up and freezes. So my guess is that after a few seconds of having internet connectivity, the network attempts to set a mac address, which then in turn causes the crash to occur. I looked at my logs (system, ect..) and really didn't notice any errors at the time of the crash, but before I did notice a bunch of speed step errors, which could be somehow related. Anyway if I ever figure this out I'll let you guys know, I'm still trying to figure out a way to set this mac address so that when the system reboot it will automatically have the mac set, and hopefully will allow the internet to work.
