Weird screen after installation

Hi everyone, I have met issues with Fujitsu S7211 instalation. If I use iPC X-DL Live DVD to install and followed exactly what http://jani74.blogspot.com/2009/03/fujitsu...-and-osx86.html instructions, I can get perfect support (Of course no audio, poor Wireless support as the Intel driver 4965 need to use a terminal application to do it --- which has no Secure Network support and defintely no Ethernet support ---- Mine Ethernet is Marvell Yukon 88E8055 but neither Marvell Yukon 88E8056 nor Marvell Yukon 88E8039 / 8053 worked.) but no internal display support (The given driver ended up a big big desktop that forces me to use Ctrl + Shift + U or sort of to get Utilities,But but the system preferences may not show (Shown too far away within my grasp, i cant figure out or sort.)

 

Other similar patches / kext result the same thing and I MUST use an external display (The internal is all black). If I selected mirror or sort of (2 displays show the same thing), both displays (internal & external) show distorted images, not possible to work with (No leopard desktop background etc)

 

So I changed my installation method. Using similar as the source, I now added Clamshell Display Support (I reformat the drive before the installation) and now it show such images

-- Post installation options. Before this, I have to connect to an external monitor which gives blue screen for 10 mins or so before the OSX welcome video with multiple languages of "Welcome" where I notice both internal & external displays shows distorted video. After the end of welcome video, this was what i get.

-- Leopard desktop after configuration. What should I do now?? External monitor does not seemed to work.

 

QE/CI seemed to be "enabled" even though OSx86 Utility say it is not (Which I clicked to enable and it is still ok). --- Even though I dare not vouch for QE/CI is really enabled or not.

 

 

Update: The Clamshell Display support does not work after reboot, regardless if external display is attached. It stops at the blue screen similar to the attached images.

 

(After installation, I reboot to Vista to post this and test back my mac, and get this updated info.)

Update: I have finally got it working by installing iATKOS v5i, even though need to meddle with SwitchResX and deal with device ID sort under Graphic / Display etc where I have found somewhere else. I need to face the potential long time (15 mins??) of blue screen of 800*600 screen (3 such screen, making it too small), similar to my attached images and sort. Full QE/CI and no safe mode needed. I need some time to sort the exact instruction before I write a how to. (No gurantee though)

 

 

PS:I am trying to get my Internet (Ethernet) working so that I can test update to 10.5.6.

You can set resolution in com.apple.Boot.plist

 

The Marvell 88E8055 is supported in OSX by Apple's own drivers, you probably just have a different device ID.

Extract AppleYukon2.plist from the plugins folder in IONetworkingFamily.kext and add your 88E8055 device ID to it.

Wow, even though I have fixed the ethernet issue slightly earlier (Google for such driver, there is one that need to use 3 files), this is another learning point. Thank you very much!

 

Regarding the resolution issue -- I will try to hack around.
