I have a Mac Mini 2006 (upgraded) with Intel GMA950 graphics, running MLPostFactor 10.8.5. It is connected to an ASUS VS197 LCD panel using DVI-D. This is natively a 1366x768 panel that is recognized and works fine.
However, the other choices for resolution are 4:3 800x600 and 1024x768, and then the oddballs 832x624 and 1360x768. None of these are useful as a low-resolution widescreen for gaming or watching DVD content. Specifically I want to get access to 848x480 or 854x480, and also 1024x576. SwitchResX makes these choices available, but it doesn't work with a "full screen" game, presumably because the game directly queries OSX Display to get a list of valid resolutions and SwitchResX is bypassing that system instead.
So the solution is obvious: buy a new computer pull the monitor's EDID data, hack it to enable new resolutions, and then tell OSX to use this custom EDID instead of the one retrieved from the monitor.
Following the steps of the EDID injection guide, here is where I am:
* Retrieve EDID, DisplayVendorID etc from ioreg.

* Use an EDID editor to enable new 848x477 and 1024x576 resolutions. (Verify with an online EDID tool, and compare to the previous version)

* Create a new subfolder and plist within /System/Library/Overrides/Display/ containing the new EDID string and monitor name.
Now the problems begin. Even though the plist file is being read (which I know because the Monitor Name has changed in Displays), the custom EDID is not being used. When I dig into IORegExplorer I am able to come up with AAPL00,EDID string and it is the unmodified one read from the monitor. I even tried a plug-and-unplug while OSX is running, and also tried to reset the SMC and NVRAM, but no dice.
Do I need to start digging into DSDT hacking? Is the Intel driver pulling down EDID during boot and I need to override it somewhere else? What am I missing here?
Hello I'm new to the forums and I just started working with hackintoshes. I'm my specs are just a plain ol' Dell insperon 15-3521 with OS X mavericks on it (because that's the only thing it will run with out major lag) I'm on a really tight buget and I have done this before and had no issues whatsoever installed threw [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] (OS X El captain) and worked perfect and I used a computer I built a long time ago and due to some family issues I'm no longer in possetion of it, anyway i installed mavericks on the Dell and I can't get internet wether it be Wi-Fi or ethernet and i think some of this has to do with me only being able to boot into safe mode mavericks will get hung on the boot screen with the gray Apple logo and the spinning wheel I don't know what to do I haven't installed [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] because I'm waiting to hear back from you guys to see what I need to install thanks for your time everybody I hope this issue will be resolved soon. Ps I have done this in a Dell optiplex 755 (OS X mountain lion) and that's how I got my install disk for El captain OS X supported everything on it but I got rid of the optiplex a long time ago I tried Mountain Lion on the insperon and it supported nothing.
I've been attempting for the past few days to install OS X Mountain Lion on my Lenovo Thinkpad Edge E530 with little success. So much so that I've finally decided I'm probably out of ideas and created this forum post requesting help.
My Laptop Specs are:
Intel Core i3-2328m (Sandy Bridge CPU at 2.2GHZ with support for SSE2 , SSE3 and SSSE3)
500GB Hitachi Z7K500 HDD
Lenovo 627226G Motherboard (Intel HM77 Chipset)
Intel HD Graphics 3000

So far , I've attempted to install iAtkos ML2 and ML3U via USB and so far both have worked up until the first sighting of the apple logo then the laptop restarted. In both cases , I was using a separate USB with chameleon bootloader on but in the instance where I tried to use the onboard bootloader on ML3U , I hit enter and the screen simply remained black.
So i decided to try installing OSX (Hackintosh Sierra Zone Distro) on my Lenovo Yoga 700 14isk(Witch runs Windows 10 Home) with help of this guide: https://www.hackintosh.computer/868/hackintosh-sierra-zone-aka-niresh-sierra-guide/
I did all of the steps (exept i installed it on a external hard drive with 1Tb and i could't unplug the internal drive), and it was installing for around 70min.
But at around 99%, the screen went black and command lines(the same as when you start.(I am not a IT specialist and it was not a Kernel Panic)) apeared for around 10 minutes and then the PC shut down(I thought it should to this). I restarted and tried to boot from the External drive on witch Sierra should be installed. But it did not and the PC just booted Windows.
So my question is:
Is this Guide good? (I don't think so)
Dit i do something wrong? (Probably)
Is my Laptop S**t? (Maybe?)
Or something else?
Thanks for any help
My specs are:
Lenovo Yoga 700 14isk (2016)
Intel i5-6200U 2.30GHz
Nvidia GeForce 940M(discrete) / Intel HD 520(integrated)
Seagate Expansion External 2.5-inch
P.s and If your solution involves a Real Mac, I have no option to do so (exept buying one but isn't that the point).
I have a working Niresh Yosemite 10.10.5 install on my PC with Clover UEFI as the bootloader. I'd like to update it to El Capitan if possible. I've tried to do it through the Install El Capitan update app as I heard that it works as long as you have Clover. The program worked fine but when I try to boot into the Installer through Clover, I get the black Apple screen (without loading bar) followed by a black screen with a circle and a slash through it. I booted in verbose and got a message saying something about it not being able to boot.
Any suggestions or other ways to upgrade to El Capitan?
