Hi everybody, i have installed iAtKOS L2 ( lion 10.7.2 11c74 ) on my HP Pavilion a6230in.


Issue > GPU not detected and display resolution only 1024x720 ( mine is a HPw1907 1440x900 )


My Specs:


Intel Pentium ® Dual CPU E2140 @ 1.60 GHZ.




2.5 GB RAM


Network Card - Intel Pro 100 VE 




The issue is that my mackintosh doesn't recognize my GPU.



When i go to > About this mac > System Report > Graphics and Display 


I get this >>




  Type: GPU

  Bus: PCIe

  PCIe Lane Width: x16

  VRAM (Total): 3 MB

  Vendor: NVIDIA (0x10de)

  Device ID: 0x1245

  Revision ID: 0x00a1



  Resolution: 1024 x 768

  Pixel Depth: 32-Bit Color (ARGB8888)

  Main Display: Yes

  Mirror: Off

The options i ticked during install are :

                 Sound > VoodooHDA > 2.7.2




Hardware Sensors > CPU


                                  nVIDIA VGA Cards

Network > I didn't select anything, after installation i added AppleIntel8255x.kext to S/L/E ( with modified value in info.Plist ) using kext wizard.


So anybody who have installed GTS450 or any fermi cards, kindly have a look and suggest me to figure this out.

Thank you artur, i followed ur steps, added my DevID and Ven ID in NVDAResman.kext and NVDAGF100Hal.kext.


My GPU is detected and i am now running full resolution.


Again a small issue, 


Earlier i got audio working by using VoodooHDA.kext (2.7.2),the onboard ICH7 HD Audio was woking.


But now no Audio, i have got the Dev ID and Ven ID of my Geforce HD Audio, but i don't know where to add those values.

      VMQemuVGA display adapter driver for OSx86 running as a VirtualBox guest. The binary should work on all OSs from Snow Leopard up to Yosemite 10.10. It allows to set different screen resolutions in VirtualBox from System Preferences.   The changes I've made to the fork have been minimal.

      I've been running High Sierra (Currently 10.13.3) on VMWare Player 12.5.9.
      I'm running it on a Dell XPS 15 9560 with the 4k screen.
      Currently I'm able to run OSX in either Native 4k resolution, or scaled to 1080p.
      I wanted to know if it was possible to add a 1440p scaled mode? Right now if I force 1440p resolution using VMWare tools, I simply get a smaller window with the virtual machine. So, as I understand, I need to add a HiDPI version of the resolution.
      Can anyone lend a helping hand?
      Thank you!

      Hi everybody. I can't install my graphics card on my Hackintosh. I've tried several methods and no one of them work, when I go to the tab "About this Mac" it says on Display that I have a 3MB screen and I don't have 1920x1080 resolution.I'm a beginner here in the Hackintosh world so please be patient with me. Hope you can help me. Thank you. Also I'm uploading my Clover folder.
