Hi all!

I've just installed Mac OS X Leopard using iAtkos 5i.

It all installed easily, and works like a dream. But I've got a few minor problems, and I need your help.

First - when I click the pesky green button in upper left corner, why doesn't it make window full screen? :D

Second - Seems like I can't choose any screen resolution other than 1024x768 which doesn't suite my needs. I've got integrated graphic card, Intel GMA950 I assume. I've installed B drivers for that one.

Third - I can't seem to find anything similar to Device manager in Windows. Does something like that exist in Mac?


Thanks in advance, guys!

Much appreciated.


Respect to OSx86 Project :(

1. OS X doesn't do fullscreen as you think of it in Windows, it's just never been that way.


2. Go to the Apple menu in the top left corner, About this Mac (this is the answer to your third question too) , more info, Graphics/Displays section.

In order to be able to change resolution and get hardware accelerated video, "Core Image" needs to be set to "hardware accelerated" and "Quartz Extreme" to "supported".


3. See 2 .

Hey, there!

Thank you for your quick reply.


I went to "More info", found Graphics/Displays menu, everything is like you said, all the hardware is recognized, but still I cannot change my resolution to something higher. Any help with that? :(


As for the first question, is there anything at least close to Windows full screen window?

Hm, thanks, but that software doesn't seem to work plus the free version is only trial.

I don't really want it on my system, can you tell me how can I uninstall software on Mac?

Sorry for asking these noob questions, but I'm totally new :P

OK, I've managed to uninstall SwitchResX :lol:

I don't know why it didn't want to work.


Any other ideas about resolution problem?

    • Have you tried adjusting the Khz in midi pref pane or editing the info plist to suit your needs. that sometimes corrects weird noise behavior.
    • Hello Mald0n:

      Nice to meet you, I have created a post about my problem on High Sierra before and I was redirected to this guide by Allan.

      As mentioned in the post, I was not able to get pass the login screen at initial boot and the system could not shutdown occasionally.

      However I solve the high temperature problem when I replace the clover folder you provide on first post, currently the cpu temperature is around 5x-6x'c after 10 mins up time.

      Attached is the clover folder, ioreg as well as the send me app, thanks for your help!

      p.s. I notice that your clover boot efi is a old traditional grey apple boot logo, Is there a version of modern dark and white logo one that I could replace with? Thank you!
