  1. I have been trying to get my graphics working better on my hackintosh, but throughout all of my searching everything that I find is far too specific. I'm hoping that someone can explain to me a little better what all of these things mean. My screen works fine, but I can't change the resolution. I have manually changed it by adding the whole 1280x1024x32@75 thing to my /Extra/com.apple.boot.plist but graphics still seem sub-par. For example, when I try to watch video in fullscreen I get unbelievable lag with the video (but not the audio.) I keep reading about injecters and efi strings. Are these thing just hacks to get graphics working, or will they full on get my card working "properly". I have tried both but I must be doing something wrong because I never have to ability to choose from a list of resolutions or video that will work fullscreen. Here are my specs, thanks in advance everyone. Snow leopard 10.6.2 Asus P5LD2 - Deluxe Intel Pentium D 2gb of ram this is what is displayed under "about my mac" for my graphics card GeForce 7600 GS: Chipset Model: GeForce 7600 GS Type: GPU Bus: PCIe PCIe Lane Width: x16 VRAM (Total): 256 MB Vendor: NVIDIA (0x10de) Device ID: 0x0392 Revision ID: 0x00a1 ROM Revision: nVidia GeForce 7600 GS OpenGL Engine [EFI] Displays: Display: Resolution: 1280 x 1024 Pixel Depth: 32-Bit Color (ARGB8888) Main Display: Yes Mirror: Off Online: Yes Display Connector: http://s1124.photobucket.com/albums/l566/p...nt=1d2f7314.jpg I know this information isn't always 100% right, so I have also included a picture of the sticker on my video card. The one major difference that I have noticed is that os x is picking up that I have 256 ram instead of 512.

    Introduce yourself.

    well, I've been poking around here for a while and eventually registered. I'm trying to become a full user so that I can post in more reliant sections of the forums where my questions might actually be answered. How do you go about become a full member?

    Black screen after installation

    don't take my guess as gospel 'cause I'm pretty new to this too but I think you don't have a boot loader running. Try installing chameleon on a flash drive, booting to that flash drive, and then let chameleon load your iDeneb.
  4. http://s1124.photobucket.com/albums/l566/p...rrent=photo.jpg (Sorry for the low quality of the photo, it was the best I could get) I installed snow leopard via the "Snow Leopard 10 6 1 10 6 2 SSE SSE3 Intel AMD By Hazard" disc image. However, when I try to boot up I get the error in the picture above. I have installed using both dafault and lecacy kernels, all to no avail. I though it might be an incompatible kext, but I tried manually removing all of the "non-standard" kexts, but still no success. I can boot up fine in safe mode though, I am faily new to this and I'm not really sure what that could mean. Thanks in advance to anyone who tries to help me, heres my setup asus P5LD2-deluxe motherboard pentium D processor 2 GB ram can't remember my video card off the top of my head (I would check but I'm at school atm) but I know its an nVidea card
  5. Well I'm slowly fixing all of my own issues. I updated to 10.5.8 and reinstalled all of my kexts except for AppleIntelGMA950.kext and AppleIntegratedFrameBuffer.kext and then tried installing those because my resolution was stuck really low. At some point during this process, I cant remember exactly when, my install bricked. I can't remember if it was kernal panic or it would just hang at the loading screen. I started uninstalling kexts a few at a time until i could boot up again, and for some reason after removing those video kexts my resolution was fixed. I uninstalled kexts using the following code -s mount -uw / rm -rf /System/Library/Extensions/****.kext ^^I can't begin to explain how many times that code has kept me from having to reinstall ideneb. I fixed my sleep/ps2 mouse problem by reverting back to the 10.5.7 kernal and reinstalling VoodooPS2Controller.pkg. My volume is still stuck at one level and my mic isnt working.
  6. oh, and my volume seems to be stuck at the same level no matter what I do and my internal mic isnt working.
  7. I recently installed ideneb on my hp mini and most things are working. However, I'm still having a few problems and I'm hoping that someone will help make this mud a little clearer for me. So, on all of the guides that I've read it tells you when using osx86 tools to install your hp mini essential kets to to include AppleIntelGMA950 and AppleIntelIntegratedFramebuffer kexts, not sure what the latter does but isnt the first one the video kext? I could not get my resolution above 800 x 600 or something gross like that. Then I installed those kexts and everything worked fine. However, every time I tried to upgrade to 10.5.8 my video kexts seemed incompatible and I would get an unusable grey glitchy screen. **For those who didnt install those kexts, how were you getting your resolution fixed? and how can i upgrade to 10.5.8 an not brick my install? also, I was getting constant warnings that I was running on reserve battery when I obviously wasnt, so I installed PowerManagement.pkg and for a while it showed two batter icons, but now nothing shows up for a battery. **Does anyone know how I can get my batter icon back? Another issue that I have is that me trackpad well never work when I "wake up" my mini from sleeping. I'm using the voodoops2controller. *Does anyone know how to make my trackpad work upon wake? My last question is about partitioning. **is it possible to use the disk utility to partition the drive that I am currently running osx off of to make a second partition to use as a time machine? before I try to fix these things I would like to make a backup because I've had to reinstall from the ground up like, 6 times. Thanks so much in advance for your time!!!
