How to enable laptop internal display - 10.8


Recommended Posts

To make my hackintosh complete I need to enable my internal laptop display. :)

Is there any way I can achieve that?


I tried with forced edid, and display overrides with no results. Tried some AtiConfig configurations (Hoolock, Eulemur, Shrike...), too. The result was always the same: black screen or some kind of 'sleep mode'.


OS: 10.8 x64

Laptop: Toshiba satellite L675-10v, 17.3" display.

VGA: Ati Mobility Radeon HD5470, 512 MB, Cedar Pro.

The card (AtiConfig=Shrike) is fully working (QE/CI enabled) on ext HDMI and VGA ports.

I'm using Shrike as a framebuffer for my HDMI and VGA output.

For my internal display I tried a dozen of them in Chamaleon (atiConfig=framebuffer), none worked.

The framebuffers I tried:

Vervet, Douc, Langur, Uakari, Zonalis, Alouatta, Hoolock, Baboon, Eulemur, Galago, Colobus, Mangabey, Nomascus, Orangutan.


It is supposed that Hoolock (default framebuffer) or Eulemur must work for the internal display, but I don't know how to make them operational.

Thanks, but it doesn't work.

The steps I took to implement this patch.

1. copied to /Extra folder as dsdt.aml, chown-ed to root:wheel and chmod-ed to 0644 permissions

2. removed GraphicsEnabler=Yes and AtiConfig=Shrike from org.chameleon.boot.plist

3. removed my smbios.plist

4. booted in verbose and -f to clear the kext cache


The system passes the kext loads and than freezes at some memory errors (the cursors stops at half word) or I get some kernel panics...IOACPI, IOHID.
