Thanks again!

Forgive me for all the stupid questions, but the sequence now will be:

Run PBI with all the recommended settings, leave SSDT unchecked?

Copy your file as you instructed?
Yes.

But I do not understand this:

"Make sure you DO NOT patch DSDT with the graphics inject _DSM."


Do not select a screen type in the Probook Installer.

Ran PBI, did not select graphic type from dsdt, PBI completed. Downloaded Mini-SSDT-DisableGraphics.aml, renamed to ssdt.aml and copied to /Extra/ssdt.aml.

Rebooted

Booted from Macintosh HD, when the screen should turn grey, with arrow and then login window, the screen turns black and the monitor goes to sleep.

Tried booting -x with same result.

Tried booting from usbkey with -x which worked. The same happens there now.

I only have access to single user now, command line only.

Is there something else to try now? Will removing the intel-kexts work now?

Is there some boot option I can pass to chameleon so I can boot again?

Do you have an external keyboard/mouse/monitor connected? Sounds like it is going to sleep due to broken LCD.

If you want me to check what you did, post your /Extra folder.

Also, if your DSDT has GFX0 renamed to IGPU (likely), you'll need to change the SSDT similarly.

Yes, my lcd is broken so I am running with external monitor connected with hdmi. I am also using external keyboard and mouse.

Here is my /Extra folder:

I really appreciate your help on this. I do not know what application to use to edit my dsdt and ssdt. I have checked them, using VI, but they are unreadable there.

If you see what to edit, please do and post them back if you can.

Thanks again!

See note in my previous post regarding GFX0 vs. IGPU. Your SSDT is trying to inject into GFX0. Works for native DSDT but not in patched DSDT where GFX0 has been renamed to IGPU.

OK. Thanks!

I haven't got the slightest idea how to do the edit to DSDT myself...

Edit:

I think I might have found it:

Do you mean changing this:

Method (_SB.PCI0.GFX0._DSM, 4, NotSerialized)

to this:

Method (_SB.PCI0.IGPU._DSM, 4, NotSerialized)

in ssdt.aml?

No need to edit DSDT.

I did what I said a couple of posts up. Replaced my ssdt.aml with the edited one.

Something has changed, but it still doesn't boot. Now the screen doesn't go black anymore. When I boot the grey screen with the spinning wheel just stops. Nothing happens.

If I boot -v it stops with a line saying Resetting IOCatalogue

Booting -x -v ends with the same line, the same way.

Thanks for all your help, but this is apparently going nowhere...

Plan B is to reinstall and keep booting from my install usbkey with -x. That worked. But it seems impossible for me to boot from the internal hd.

Edit:

Have just ordered replacement cpu i3 2350 from eBay. Will put this on hold until it arrives. Hopefully it will work with supported cpu and graphics in place.

Thanks for all the help. It has been educational :)

Boot verbose and show quality photo of entire screen. Also, post your smbios.plist, org.chameleon.boot.plist, and *.aml from your /Extra folder.

Note: I'm not certain with disabled graphics drivers, and a broken screen whether the VESA drivers will display on an external monitor (BTW, how is the external monitor connected?). Suggestion: If you want a desktop computer, you might consider building one.
