Intel GMA X3100 is on 965 Chipset. Which means you have X3100 Graphics. But the other image you uploaded was giving wrong information. Id fully recommend checking what Hardware you have before trying to run OS X.

No. Intel GMA X3100 is supported but kexts/drivers for the X3100 are in 32bit. Hence why Anything higher than Lion won't work. You will need to boot in 32bit. So try booting in 32bit with -v arch=i386.

Note. You will need to boot with GraphicsEnabler=Yes also as you need to inject.

Gutted, no joy, still not booting, tried a few different ways and the arch=i386 on its own made it think for a bit but then black screen again :problem: :banghead:
