Hello. My hardware is: AMD Athlon X2 7750 dual-core Gigabyte NVIDIA 8400GS 512MB ( [VGA] ,HDMI,DVI) Motherboard Gigabyte based on NFORCE without AHCI support (only IDE) I have successfully installed Mac OS Yosemite, Mavericks and El Capitan with AppleNFORCEATA.kext But I can't use it with Mac OS 10.8, don't know why, it just gives error and my internal HDD's are not appearing in Disk Utility.
Hello everyone, as you can see in the title, I'm having problems with the graphics driver card (I think).
Because when I log in for example, the screen start showing to me like some blank lines and then they go away.
I think it could be some problem related to drivers, but when I go to (Apple Icon), About this Mac it told me the right graphics card, Gigabyte 210 1024MB.
What could I do to solve this problem ?, when I browse in the internet it happens those glitches in my screen.
If you want the specifications of my computer are these:
HP Compaq 8000 elite sff
Intel Core Duo E7500
Gigabyte GeForce 210
4GB RAM 1333MHz
Thank you for all your help, regards.
I have been trying to get my "old" computer running completely on Sierra for a few weeks now (before Christmas). I had been on Snow Leopard for 6 or 7 years. Was a fast setup then. Will build new rig in next couple months... anyhow.
I have a stable running Sierra. No freezes, have internet, sound, video. Have 2 issues main issues;
Issue 1 - Clover cannot detect Windows 10. Clover cannot auto-boot.
> Sierra is on SSD > Windows 10 & Snow Leopard are on different partitions of WD 2TB HDD
> Connected to Intel SATA 0, 1, 2, 3 slots
> Upon boot, Clover only displays the 2 apple drives; OS X Sierra & Recovery (does not auto boot)
> Here's the strange thing. When I navigate to EXIT CLOVER, Clover resets/refreshes/reboots. Now it can see all the attached drives.
> From here, I can select Windows or Sierra. Not the best experience.
Issue 2 - OS X does not shut down.
> So many people that have this issue. On Shutdown, screen goes black, systems just hangs.
What I've tried.
> Pressing F2 at First Clover boot (the 2 drives) and also on second iteration (all drives displaying). This shows the preboot.log. Seems the first time, Scanning doesn't work for some reason.
> I have attached preboot1 and reboot 2 for context.
> Clover Configurator - I have selected FixShutdown and Halt Enabler in ACPI. Doesn't do anything for Shutdown.
> Scan is set to Legacy. Timeout set to 3 seconds.
> DefaultBootVolume set to LastBootedVolume
1. 2 screens; Volumes from Finder / the 2 screens from Clover.
2. preboot logs
So many thanks for anyone willing to take a look and help me troubleshoot. Been tinkering over 2 weeks now.
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?
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.
