  1. Hello, I was wondering if it would be possible to hook up my Dell D820 to my 1080p monitor via VGA. On the compatibility page, it shows that VGA is supported on this machine so I am wondering how I could set it up so that the laptop screen is off and the monitor be the only display?
  2. So I'm installing Lion on my Dell D820, BIOs AO6, 4GB Ram, Core 2 Duo. I had to use a different Extras pack from this thread as the one I had before kept giving me Kernel Panics. Anyhow, I'm booting into the USB, and all is good except it gets stuck on a black screen with the Loading Spinning Wheel. Probably trying to initialize the installer. Any tips?
  3. I installed the appropriate ethernet kext for my Dell Latitude D820 but when I go to the Network Setting in System Preferences, it says No IP Address and if I put one in... it still won't connect to the internet. I think I might have to configure everything by myself..because in Network Diagnostics, everything is failing. Oh well. Any help would be appreciated. EDIT: Solved using the D620_GMA950_LowRes Pack Ethernet Kext, found down below.
  4. Ok, I've been looking a bit at this situation, and I've found the following, using the model_data in SVN revision 564: 1.)

Hmm, what about the Intel GMA D820..... Same thing, the D820 gets a MacBook1,1 but the D620 is MacBook2,1; but I don't have a D820-Intel to test on, so it might very well work that way on the D820-intel). In a similar light, my Inspiron 9400 (GMA950, 1920x1200 screen) works as a D620-intel-high (MB2,1) but won't work with the smbios.plist provided in the Inspiron_9400 EDP (set up as a MBP3,1). My D820/P-M65 is happy with the D620 EDP (as a MacBook2,1) but it is not happy with the D820 EDP (as a MacBook 1,1). For that matter, my D820/M65 is happy without a DSDT.aml or smbios.plist at all, using the leppy700m BootCD (happier, in ways, since the VGA and DVI ports on the D/Dock work with the leppy700m BootCD but don't with the D620 EDP). But that is of course a substantially older Chameleon..... Anyway, there's a few data points....
