    The permissions on your kext are wrong. To fix this: Go into disk utility (/Applications/Disk Utility), select your boot volume and click on "repair permissions" on the first aid tab. This should fix your problem.

    I have had this too. There is not yet a workaround I know of. But for me just rebooting the pc (sometimes several times) fixed it. Maybe you can try that?

    This is actually something I had as well. Don't have any idea how to fix it. I tried natit and other tweaks, but nothing helped :s I guess it's got to do with initializing the graphics card. If I first booted windows, and then booted into osX everything would be fine from the first time..

    Hi! Sorry, I've been away for a while, got myself a macbook pro, just couldn't stand the crappy trashiba anymore.. If you get to the blue screen, it probably means that the AppleIntelGMAX3100.kext is still installed. To get native resolution, you just need the kext that ends in 3100FB.kext. To remove it, boot in single user mode, and enter following: mount -uw / rm -R /System/Library/Extensions/AppleIntelGMAX3100.kext reboot This should work The only way to know for sure is trying it. Chameleon does normally not matter, it's at the moment a hard coded driver. So try it, if it fails, you can remove the driver using a few simple commands in single user mode The problem is that the only way of telling your pc to use the internal display, is by means of using a custom Natit If you want a clear sketch of the problem: the gma X4500MHD needs information from your screen in order to know what kind of screen it is, and what resolutions it supports. This information is normally stored within the EDID information in a chip on your screen(!) and sent through the display connector. Now some laptop builders find it too cumbersome to add the 1 small wire that connects from that chip to your GMA X4500MHD. So instead, they store the information in the bios, and use a customized driver in windows, that reads the values from your BIOS. As you might've guessed by now, the osX driver doesn't look in the BIOS, because it doesn't know what a BIOS is..(because apple uses EFI instead of a 16bit BIOS). In order to get the information to the driver, you'd need to 'inject' it. This injecting is done by means of a custom Natit. I'm real bad at making those, but there are a lot of threads about it. Search the forum for custom Natit with EDID values. A second problem you have is your flat panel. Apparently your GMA X4500 doesn't see the display at all. The only fix to this is forcing your GMA X4500 to look for a display on it's LVDS connector. This is done by setting the 'HasPanel' value in Natit.kext. You'll find plenty of info about that too on the forum. I'm in real time need atm, otherwise I'd have made a natit for you that has the right options. But there's a way to fix your problem for sure

    Probably just the framebuffer

    Well, the problem is that it's more of an issue with how a company implements its GM45 architecture, not that you have a certain hardware or stuff.. The specs tell me not so much. I think somebody else also had that laptop in this thread, maybe try searching through all the info, maybe he found a way to fix it
  7. GMA X4500

    maybe, but I can't help that.. Merely trying to help.. Got to continue working though. Did you also remove the FB one?
  8. GMA X4500

    Okay, then boot to single user mode (-v -s at boot prompt) you'll eventually get to a console. Enter following commands: mount -uw / rm -rf /System/Library/Extensions/2A42AppleIntelGMAX3100.kext reboot This will remove the kext that usually causes the problem. If that doesnt work, then boot into single user again, and enter following: mount -uw / rm -rf /System/Library/Extensions/2A42AppleIntelGMAX3100FB.kext reboot This will remove the patch in its whole.. So you'll be able to boot to normal, but won't have native resolution.
  9. GMA X4500

    No, that hasn't got anything to do with it.. Hmmm.. Do you know how to work a terminal?
  10. GMA X4500

    The blue screen probably is because the normal 2A42AppleIntelGMAX3100.kext (without FB) is still in /System/Library/Extensions. Try booting in safe mode (-x at the bootloader prompt), you should get to the normal login window, and you can remove the kext with finder Hope this helps.

    Is it possible to downgrade your BIOS? That might solve all issues. I know most of the times this is impossible, but you might try it?
  12. GMA X4500

    Actually, chameleon2 RC2 has the patch already. Just adding the graphics mode in com.apple.boot.plist is enough to get it up and running :mellow:
  13. GMA X4500

    didn't try it, it already works.. Do you want me to try it?
  14. GMA X4500

    Sorry, wrong topic :$ Sorry I get native resolution allright
  15. Ideneb cant detect harddrive!

    Could you specify what exactly doesn't work? Is it while booting an installed os, or can't you select your hard drive in disk utility in the installer? Or does it hang at the boot of the dvd?
