I have already installed iDeneb v1.3 on my laptop Toshiba Satellite L20-101:

Intel Pentium M 740 - 1733 MHz - SSE2, but no SSE3

512MB DDR2

Intel 915GM

Conexant Cx20468

Realtek RTL8139

Intel PRO/Wireless 2200BG on MiniPCI and TP-LINK TL-WN510G on PCMCIA (Atheros AR5005G)


MAT{censored}A UJ-841S


But after installation there is "Apple" logo, and then Blue Screen. Hdd was working, so I think this is only problem with video card... I'm trying this methods:




but nothing work... I'm trying to connect with VGA cable to 15" Monitor of my PC too and I don't see Blue Screen, but Black Screen and mouse coursor and that's all!

Please help me! What should I do?


Ooohh... I forgot - I used already this method - boot with -x (F8 and then -x) as well as -v -f...


Please help me, I am so close... :D

Thanks :D It's work, but only with -x (Safe Mode) and I can't use my WiFi, becouse I got this error "Could not get ID for kernel control. 2" (Intel 2200bg with iwidarwin drivers)


"Error: Could not get ID for kernel control. 2


This error means one of the following


* The iwi2200 driver is not installed

* The driver is installed but you have not rebooted

* The kext did not load for some reason (are you in safe mode?) "


And my sound card doesn't work too xD.


This method doesn't work for me - http://forum.insanelymac.com/index.php?showtopic=110176


But this work only with -x too (Safe Mode ;/) and this paperclip http://gsbd41316.files.wordpress.com/2006/...3.thumbnail.jpg - http://forum.insanelymac.com/index.php?sho...mp;#entry936087


Safe Mode works fine, but if I boot normally I get graphic artifacting (in all of this 3 mathods for 900GMA/915GM) so bad that the system is unusuable, can't make out anything.


Fcking Intel 915GM...


But... maybe there is some method? EFI-string? Can I generate the EFI-string for this graphic card and how I can do this?

I have already "PciRoot..." from Termial:

cd ~/desktop

./gfxutil -f display

My 900GMA/915GM is PciRoot(0x0)/Pci(0x2,0x0) so what should I do now if I don't have in.plist?

Where I can get this file?


Ok, when I have get (but I don't have already) in.plist edited (past PciRoot(0x0)/Pci(0x2,0x0) and somethings else?) I should open Termial, and:

cd ~/desktop

./gfxutil -i xml -o hex ./in.plist ./out.hex


Then I have get out.hex. This file should have string, which I can past to com.apple.Boot.plist


<string>*my EFI-string*</string>


Then remove kext for my 900GMA from extensions, and remove extensions.mkext.

Then reboot.


But where tha fck I can get in.plist file?
