    Intel HD Graphics / GMA 5700

    New test today : After installing Lion, no way to boot it w/ all kext loaded. It's working w/ SL but not w/ Lion (VNC connection of course) So i tried to put back all the kext from SL in Lion S/L/E and it does exactly the same, can't boot. Maybe there's a new problem w/ Lion, not only a connector issue in FB. BTW does someone know how the connectors are hard coded in the FB, like how bcc9 explained in his sandy bridge thread for SNB frame buffer ?

    Fixed no kext load issue

    Hi all, I've been able to install Lion final on my Acer 1830T (btw xMove sucks (no offense to Tonymac), much easier to make a usb bootable Lion Installer, just had to remove IntelHD kexts from installer). still no luck w/ intel HD. worst : no more vnc connection w/ all kext loaded... tryed w/ manor kext, com.apple..., and even dsdt : a new error : pci can't be find adress or something like that. tried booting w/ modded chimera (1366x768 mod) w/out kexts : vnc OK w/ resolution but messed up screen on laptop (same timing issue as w/ SL : seems normal)... Sandy bridge users now have native res w/ QE&CI, hope we're the next ones...

    Fixed no kext load issue

    Forget about modding chimera, As some of us, i have been able to boot w/ all kext loaded WITH QE/CI through a vnc connection so no more chimera modding, it's a waste of time. We all now have to find how to get the internal display to be recognized. BTW, i tried to install Lion, no luck : KP launching the install... (same error w/ SL, the only way i got SL installed is w/ nawcom USB mod, i have to found out why cause not working w/ Lion) Hope we're not too far away from Lion w/ QE/CI on Intel hd only laptop...

    Fixed no kext load issue

    bootArgs->Video.v_display = GRAPHICS_MODE; bootArgs->Video.v_width = 1366; // minfo.XResolution; bootArgs->Video.v_height = 768; // minfo.YResolution; bootArgs->Video.v_depth = 32; // minfo.BitsPerPixel; bootArgs->Video.v_rowBytes = 5464; // minfo.BytesPerScanline; bootArgs->Video.v_baseAddr = VBEMakeUInt32(minfo.PhysBasePtr); There's a timing issue...

    Fixed no kext load issue

    I know that this will not get us QE/CI but it is a good step forward for native resolution : i've just modified Chimera source code to bypass VESA detection : downloaded source w/ terminal : svn co http://forge.voodooprojects.org/svn/chamel...anches/Chimera/ modified /i386/boot2/graphics.c (see the picture) compiled chimera and copied it on a usb key booted up from the usb key => native resolution on OSX (1366x768) but messed up screen... does anyone know what i need to change in this code to get proper timing w/ that resolution ?

    Fixed no kext load issue

    No /Extra/Modules folder here (chimera 1.4.1) Just added Resolution.dylib in Extra/modules but nothing in bdmesg about resolution...

    Fixed no kext load issue

    http://forge.voodooprojects.org/p/chameleo...ules/Resolution Maybe we can just edit edid.c to return a specific edid or add support for 0046... morkb can u post ur hardware specs ? intel only ? 0046 ? Thanks New try today w/ external monitor : can boot at any custom resolution supported in chameleon by specifying the res at boot if i put "Graphics Mode"="1280x1024" in chameleon, OSX is booting at 1280x1024. the solution to get native res is in chameleon. manor gets native res because chameleon can actually find his native res, not because of any kext...

    Fixed no kext load issue

    My solution was not to try that loader, but the way they modified it. Perhaps we can bypass any EDID or com.boot.apple.plist check and set our own res, timing, ... in a custom chameleon to force it to work w/ our laptop display. I want first to try again w/ an external monitor, to force chameleon w/ another resolution (didn't tried last time, didn't had the idea at that time...) to see if osx is booting with the same res (should be ok). And the next thing i want to try is to boot w/ good EFI strings w/ all IntelHD kexts (including framebuffer) to see if a VNC connection shows everything loaded including QE/CI (as another post mentioned (don't remember who said u'll get a black screen but VNC perfect (QE/CI ok w/ all kext loaded)), so we'll know it IS a display issue (first a chameleon display issue, next an OSX display issue => no kext involved). Hope this works cause no more ideas !

    Fixed no kext load issue

    I've tried w/ an external display (VGA CRT) and it shows more res under chameleon so it's a display issue w/ chameleon. I'll try on monday some more stuff based on this thread : http://deviato.wordpress.com/2010/02/24/ch...-gma-version-2/

    Intel HD Graphics / GMA 5700

    => Never see the desktop, it stop in verbose mode...if you add the correct efi string you will get a nice black screen instead...vnc working fine with all accelerations Is it also working w/ an external monitor ? That would mean that's only the display not recognized, and so maybe just because we're not using the same bootloader as manor Those kind of issues have been solved in the past for X3100/X4500 : http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php...182074&st=0 http://deviato.wordpress.com/2010/01/28/ch...r-snow-leopard/
