I have a Dell Vostro 1510 Hackintosh running OS X 10.8.2. Everything was working fine till I enabled graphics by

installing the Intel GMAX 3100 kext, which after reboot caused a black screen to appear and freeze. Booting into verbose showed

something like invalid backlight just before the freeze. Right now its working after using GraphicsEnabler=No. Please help!

My specs:

Processor Intel Core 2 Duo

Graphics Intel Gmax 3100

You can't use 32-bit drivers on a 64-bit OS.


What Artur is trying to tell you is that the driver for your Intel graphics is 32-bit only, you must run your OS in 32-bit mode. Since Mountain Lion can't do that you'll need to install Snow Leopard or Lion.

If it's a GMA X3100 that you have, try the MLPF hack. That would give you 32bit kernel mode in ML and full QE/CI. It works quite well and supports ML up to 10.8.4 to date. Support for 10.8.5 should follow fairly soon.
