    Default Screen garbled after install on GMA950 / Inspiron 6400/E1505

    Hi Guys,

    I've tried an install of 10.5.5 using both iDeneb and iAtkos on my 6400,

    I've got multicore disabled in the bios (also disabled sound, card reader), and i've always just left the standard kernel.

    Each time, no matter what drivers i choose (normally i pick the GMA950 if available), after the Apple screen dissapears, i get

    1. 2 seconds of blue screen
    2. screen goes black
    3. I connect an external monitor
    4. Press Fn + F8
    5. Screen shows garble/corruption

    Sometimes in the corner i can see the rainbow cursor spinning above all of the corrupt junk... but i can't move it.

    The harddrive is spinning and churning away like its loading something.

    I have tried

    1. -x
    2. various combinations of "GraphicsMode"= (in 8,16 and 32)

    Been at it for 3 days now, can anyone help?

    Screenie below of the garble...

    Default

    Temporarily Fixed.... not hardware accelerated, but working ok, allows me to get in and mess around. Details below.

    Code:
    cd /Volumes/MAC_OSX/System/Library/Extensions
    rm -rf AppleIntelGMA950.kext
    rm -rf AppleIntelGMA950GA.plugin
    rm -rf AppleIntelGMA950GLDriver.bundle
    rm -rf AppleIntelGMA950VADriver.bundle
    rm -rf AppleIntelIntegratedFramebuffer.kext
    rm -rf AppleIntelGMAX3100.kext
    rm -rf AppleIntelGMAX3100FB.kext
    rm -rf AppleIntelGMAX3100GA.plugin
    rm -rf AppleIntelGMAX3100GLDriver.bundle
    rm -rf AppleIntelGMAX3100VADriver.bundle
    kextcache -c
    reboot

    Default

    Achieved Full 1280*1024 Resolution, buy installing the Recommended Driver for my graphics chipset using osx86Tools. Once i rebooted i had full res.

    Animations are a little slow, but looks much better.
