    dkash, Are you saying that you have full 1600x900 resolution with QE/CI on your LCD? If so, what kext(s) are you using for Lion and if you're using a DSDT, can you provide it? Would be greatly appreciated...

    I managed to get Lion to boot and now have it set up just like how I have SL. Took me some time and playing around with different kexts but its working. I patched the ATI4600Controller.kext under Lion and I get QE/CI via VGA and HDMI. I'm going to continue testing to see if i can get the LCD active. Wish me luck...

    The only difference between your 1747 and mine based upon your signature is that mine has 8GB of RAM and (2) 320GB HDDs. Got it at a good price and the 1st thing I wanted to do was turn it into a Macbook Pro. My 1747 has the Dell Wireless 1520 wifi-n card. I gave up on trying to get it to work and instead use a usb wifi adapter. Been trying to get Lion on it... I guess since SL is giving me so much problems esp with the LCD. If it works out then I'll upload my files etc.

    Almuras, I attached my DSDT.aml and the necessary files to get native sound. Put "DSDT.aml" in Extra folder Put "IDT92HD73C1X5_R3.kext" in Extra\Extensions Put "AppleHDA" in System\Library\Extensions (remove original and use Kext Helper) If you have VoodooHDA installed, delete it and run Kext Utility to repair permissions & cache. Let me know if it works... actually used Kizman's guide from the link you suggested above. Sound.zip

    Thanks for the file but it didn't work for me. I found out why my DSDT.dsl wasn't compiling and fixed it. Now I have native sound with my updated DSDT.aml. Will also study it further to see if I can alter the ATI framebuffer info because by default its set to Peregrine and I have Shrike injected via my boot file.

    I tried adding the HDEF lines to DSDT.dsl but when I made an attempt to compile it to a .aml file I get an error. Would you be able to post your current DSDT.aml with the HDEF lines incorporated into it? It would be much appreciated.

    Nothing yet... I've come to the realization that its not the ATIFramebuffer that is the issue but perhaps something else. I tried with previous versions of the kext and they all work pretty much the same in giving me only VGA/HDMI output. I've been altering the binary for ATI4600Controller that comes with 10.6.8 and still nothing. I'm going to continue trying and will post what I come up with upon success. By the way, what are you using to get sound? So far I've been using VoodooHDA and the sound comes out crappy.

    I have the same condition as you almuras. My screen is black with the backlight. My ATi Mobility Radeon HD 4650 is displayed correctly under System Profiler and QE/CI is working. Been remoting into my Studio 1747 via my Imac using Remote Desktop. Gonna give muchas guide another once over to see if I can fix ATIframebuffer.kext to get my LCD showing the image without having to remote in. Will post an update when I can.
