coudl you please provide a lot more information. What is your card what is it's device id what is it's subsystem id. what version of chameleon what are your flags in com.apple.boot.plist
Comment 2 by Azimutz, Jun 20, 2011
Yeah, please post device id + subsys id; most likely they are not present on the booter's code. This is new policy; we will not add devices without demand and confirmation that they work.

Device ID: 6741 Vendor ID:1002 Subsys ID: 1646 103c Below is my boot.plist <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd"> <plist version="1.0"> <dict> <key>DSDT</key> <string>/Extra/dsdt.aml</string> <key>EthernetBuiltin</key> <string>Yes</string> <key>GenerateCStates</key> <string>Yes</string> <key>GeneratePStates</key> <string>Yes</string> <key>GraphicsEnabler</key> <string>No</string> <key>Kernel</key> <string>/mach_kernel</string> <key>SMBIOS</key> <string>/Extra/smbios.plist</string> </dict> </plist>

Hi there... we have another winner :) your dev id is on AtiRadeonX3000. I see on PCI repository "NI Whistler [AMD Radeon HD 6600M Series]"... is this correct? About your Boot.plist: - no need for DSDT & SMBIOS keys if you have the files on those paths. - remove the slash "/" from /mach_kernel I'm going to be waiting on a confirmation of the card's name to mark the issue as "Accepted" and take action ;)

I'm not sure what you means about "PCI repository "NI Whistler [AMD Radeon HD 6600M Series]"". But yes the card is a member of AMD Radeon HD 6000M Series I saw on AMD official site. And the dev id both can be found in ATI6000Controller.kext and ATI3000Controller.kext under S/L/E. :) I use /mach_kernel instead of mach_kernel because it will say could not find mach_kernel if I remove the slash in older chameleon. Thanks and waiting new build to test if I can get my laptop works as mc723 with both Intel HD & ATI working fully.

What i meant with "PCI repository "NI Whistler [AMD Radeon HD 6600M Series]"" is: http://pci-ids.ucw.cz/read/PC/1002/6741 You should have posted the card's name, so we don't have to loose time looking for it! You can't have the same id in different controllers! 6000Controller is from Lion; you should remove it from Snow's S/L/E or the other way around. Also make sure you remove any injectors you have installed. About ATI/AMD, all i can do is add your device to the code and give you some pointers; the rest is up to you. I can't guarantee it will work as you expect; laptops usually give problems with LVDS. About Intel HD, there's no support on the booter for it; either works ootb or you have to fix it your self. Strange that kernel thing; never had such a problem. I will post as soon as i get it ready...
Comment 7 by Azimutz, Jun 21, 2011
upps, you managed to trick me :-/ The device id is indeed on ATI6000Controller.kext and ATIRadeonX3000.kext (there's no ATI3000Controller.kext) but that's on Lion; are you using Lion?
Comment 8 by Liu Colin, Jun 21, 2011
Yes, I'm on Lion DP4 now. :)
Comment 9 by Azimutz, Jun 21, 2011
Ok.. let's see what i can do. You need to be patient :) Going for lunch and rest... been up all night.
Comment 10 by Liu Colin, Jun 22, 2011
Thanks and if you need any other info just let me know. ^ ^ BTW, the intel HD is working very good without any external display. It seems supported by Lion. What I need from 6750M is external display ( VGA and HDMI both not work).
Comment 11 by Azimutz, Jun 22, 2011
Doesn't surprise me, the Intel support, since it's integrated on the Core ixxx CPU's and Apple uses it ;) Can't guarantee the external display or LVDS; that depends on the framebuffer. If it doesn't work with a certain fb by ootb, you'll have to pick the closest match for your card and try to edit the fb personality's layout. Take a peek at the link below; i'll explain everything there. Thank you for your feedback :) http://forge.voodooprojects.org/p/chameleon/issues/91/#ic576
