OSx86 10.4.5 successfully installed on an HP Pavillion tower with an Intel Extreme (XTREEEEME!!1) Graphics Card, 845G.
I have an HDTV with no drivers, and it is capable of 1366x768 resolution. But OSx86 is stuck at 1024x768.
I have attempted to change the
sudo pico /Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/com.apple.Boot.plist
file, to no avail. Typing in the graphics mode parameters at boot does nothing, as well.
It is worth noting that on a fresh Windows install with this machine, I am stuck on 640x480 until I downloaded the Intel drivers from here. I'd assumed it was because my HDTV was not plug and play. After a reboot, I had full 1366x768 resolution. And it was good, and there was much rejoicing.
Also worth noting, Ubuntu does not recognize the widescreen-ality of this graphics card at all, either - no amount of xorg fiddling or BIOS cache patching would do the trick. I was stuck at 1024x768 there as well, and in addition I had to force it into the 810 graphics driver, because it mistakenly defaulted to 915 (even a gparted livecd has to be forced into 810 video mode with this graphics card and display combination, or else the GUI won't load)
I am writing this from a PowerBook G4. I can use the VGA adapter and plug it into my HDTV, and it recognizes the higher resolution right away.
I am running 10.4.5, and in my extensions folder I have the following:
but no 810 or 830 files, so editing those aren't an option as mentioned in this thread.
Does anyone have any suggestions? Having a beautiful 32" widescreen monitor stuck at 1024x768 is agonizing.
