Intel i3 2370M HD 3000 and Mountain Lion 10.8.2

Hi,

 

I'm having crashes with HD 3000 (0116) and Mountain Lion 10.8.2. They may be related to ring stall, but I'm not sure. My processor is Intel i3 2370M (http://ark.intel.com...-Cache-2_40-GHz). My boot loader is Chameleon 2.2svn (svn-r2140). I got full resolution and QE/CI by removing AppleIntelFramebufferCapri.kext and editing Info.plist of AppleIntelSNBGraphicsFB.kext (IOPCIPrimaryMatch key changed to 0x1E3A8086 from 0x1C3A8086). I don't have GraphicsEnabler=Yes in my org.chameleon.boot.plist. If I add it, the only difference is my graphics card is recognised as 'Intel HD Graphics 3000 384 MB Shared' instead of 'Intel HD Graphics 3000 384 MB'. I'm using MacBookPro8,2 SMBios. I'm having sudden crashes of WindowServer. Everything is frozen except for the mouse, and I see scrambled areas on screen. If I have music playing it keeps playing, I can move my mouse. Also I can reproduce these symptoms by opening a big (5000x1000) jpg with Preview and trying to make it fullscreen. The crashes occur without any relation to what I'm doing then.

 

I know this is a common issue and people are having similar issues with HD 3000 but also I've seen people claiming it was resolved by updates. I also tried editing AppleIntelSNBGraphicsFB.kext and some related DSDT edits but no go.

 

So I wanted to check if I'm missing something. Any help is appreciated. Also if you can check with a big jpg file it Preview crashes, it would be appreciated too. I'm attaching my DSDT.aml, my SMBios.plist, lspci -vv output from Linux and kernel log from a ring stall.

 

Thanks in advance.

Please put your hardware in signature to get proper support.

 

Have fun.

Usually SMBios for MBP8,1 or 8,3 is used .. give it a try.

    • Hi,Bergui.  I am certainly happy you finally solved your problem  but I am confused.  What you did is what you were supposed to do to do to begin with.  What were you doing before? You mean you were creating your USB with something else than a Mac? 
    • Is there a simple guide somewhere that explains what to do to to help out testing your ssdt's? I got clover configurator, ioregexplorer and some basic knowledge but it's hard to find out where to start.  Also... if I was about to apply an ssdt... is it easily reversible or do I have do an reinstall every time I screw up?   Edit: Admire your work by the way. I've been google'n this for years. Hat's off! 
    •   Hi Maldon, great guide! I got my old Dell 780 (LGA775) running High Sierra 10.13.4 nicely, thank you!   I have no audio and I see where you mention "Device HDEF + AppleALC + Lilu". I have AppleALC + Lilu in my KEXT folder but not sure what "Device HDEF" is. 
      Also when it goes to sleep it takes like 2 minutes to wake. I have a Q9400 quad core + Nvidia Quadro FX580 but don't have a DSDT for it. Can you help me with a DSDT?   Here are my RunMe Results https://drive.google.com/file/d/1Duv3XYyW4UhziDVVWdquwxYcGQ-D5tvm/view?usp=sharing   SPECS: Dell 780 MT, Q9400 2.66GHz Core2Quad Core, Nvidia Quadro FX580 
    • I've tried these several methods of booting into clover, but it still skips. I even double checked that i was using your Clover folder. Bios settings should be the same too... this is getting really strange here.
