Hi All,

Does anyone know how to make Chimera boot up at 1366x768 instead of 1024x768?
I am using intel HD3000 graphics on a HP Probook 4030s i3 sandy bridge laptop.

Thanks!

I am not sure if its supporting that resoultion but you can add these arguments to your boot.plist (inside Extra/Extensions):

Add it somewhere between <dict></dict> arguments.

<key>Graphics Mode</key>
<string>1366x768x32</string>

I have a different laptop (dell inspiron 14R N4110), but it's also a sandy bridge chipset. What worked for me is 1st make sure you're using the latest version of chimera, and 2nd, I had to identify my system as a Macbook Pro 8,1 in multibeast. Other system types gave me a bunch of display artifacts and forced me to reboot. Works well now.
