  1. Beware IRONY: I found the solutionHere's documentation about your laptop: http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c01301275.pdf (On page 45f...) If you replace the module and then receive a warning message, remove the module to restore computer functionality, and then contact technical support through Help and Support. So you have only to call the technical support. F%&%ing whitelist. There's absolutely no documentation about the insyde EFI / fd file. Only thing I found is that the computer is based on the santa rosa platform. Well what's interesting is the memory map on page 92 (System BIOS)
  2. At around 2d2 there's a lot of e4's. Don't know if that matters. But even if you'd find it you had to patch it out in another way (Maybe there are checksums..) What's against flashing the card?
  3. Hm, I think the other possibility is easier to flash the wlan card's eeprom so it appears to be a hp one. A how to is in one of the links I posted.
  4. Jalavoui can you tell your vendor id /system id and so on of the card that came shipped with the notebook? Hm I don't think that there's a possibility :-( You could try to reflash the cards' firmware with HP's vendor ID (the instructions with the knoppix files). The BIOS files you have are already binary, I think so you would have to decompile them. It doesn't seem that anyone has already accomplished / tried to do so.

  6. Hm I think there's a problem with those .fd files: http://forum.insanelymac.com/index.php?showtopic=30854 but this thread is 2 years old so... There's a solution: http://forums11.itrc.hp.com/service/forums...threadId=905994 But I don't think that the card will be seen as an intel one anymore so that could influence with your driver http://forums.slickdeals.net/showthread.ph...&p=11412285 Don't know what this means: http://www.wimsbios.com/phpBB2/topic8738.html EDIT: After really long investigations I didn't find a tool to mod an insyde bios :-( I don't think that they want to give it out ( http://www.insydesw.com/ ). The only possibility is to "hot plug" the card after the bios has loaded/ mac os x is loading :-(
  7. This is a thread I found which discusses to disable the whitelist completely: http://forum.insanelymac.com/index.php?showtopic=97480
  8. http://www.engadget.com/2005/02/22/the-hp-...-pci-cards-out/ I think I once saw a solution to that. I'll search for it EDIT: Think I've found the solution. You have to flash your BIOS with a custom made. http://www.rechner.org/b1800_bios.html I hope that this is the right manual. This is another manual: http://www.srcf.ucam.org/~mjg59/thinkpad/bios.html The procedure is nearly the same.

    I haven't tested this but it's enabled on the internal monitor but as I said it's only Quartz GL and not Quartz Extreme (2d not 3d acceleration as I think)

    He talks about a tool named osx86 tool. Website: http://######.com/osx86tools/ It's unclear if he succeded but it's worth a try. EDIT: Tested it, does really enable Quartz Gl (but only this). I haven't seen any performance improvements

    Discuss 8400M GT for Vaio only

    What I write are all assumptions: About a VESA "Kext": I don't think that there is any kernel extension for vesa since it's in the kernel itself. This should be one of the functions that communicates with the graphics card: http://developer.apple.com/documentation/D...positePage.html On the wikipedia page ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/VESA_BIOS_Extensions )about VESA itself it states that VBE is "made available through the video adapter's BIOS, which installs interrupt vectors pointing at itself". This pointing at itself is the problem. A driver like all the NV kexts (not the Injecters) will not use the Vesa interrupt but wait for a signal from the card. On Vaio laptops this signal is diferetn from other platforms. I don't know why. For the EDID information: There's plenty of information over at the NvInject forums: http://nvinject.free.fr/forums/viewtopic.php?t=125 http://nvinject.free.fr/forums/viewtopic.php?t=302 http://nvinject.free.fr/forums/viewtopic.php?p=2480#2480 Hope I can help. BTW: I can't dump my card's bios since it will crash the computer.

    I think the VESA driver should be in the darwin open source packages by Apple http://www.opensource.apple.com/darwinsource/Current/
  13. For the bug fixes (3945) under Linux I found these links: http://www.mail-archive.com/git-commits-he...g/msg33809.html and this: http://www.mail-archive.com/git-commits-he...g/msg41153.html Hope it helps One change is u32 count = 0; to u32 count = 8; The other hack is more complicate: http://git.kernel.org/?p=linux/kernel/git/...94ae316c6b79a03

    I fixed black screen after boot

    If it's a Vaio then it would be a sensation
