    Sorry if I am way off base here. I have no intentions of updating to Lion (I need Rosetta).

    But will Chimera (and Intel HD 3000) work with Core i3 (530) Snow Leopard (non-DSDT) 10.6.8?

    Or is Chimera a Lion-only bootloader? Or will Intel HD 3000 only work with Lion? Or is HD 3000 support only for Sandy Bridge?

    EDIT: I have an H57 Express mobo, which means it is not Sandy Bridge?!

    EDIT: I have 9800GT working nicely at the moment with late Chameleon/Graphics Enabler in /Extra/com.apple.Boot.plist. I would love (working) HDMI out, and no DVI->HDMI will work with my current setup. This machine DOES HAVE HD 3000 tho!

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Cheers.

    I see what you did there...

    Thanks B.

    I see where it says it is recommended for all systems.

    I was just wondering if I had the correct kexts? I have retail 10.6.8 (combo update from 10.6.7, Apple updated from retail 10.6.3 install).

    PS. Can I use both GPUs at once for multi-monitor setup?

    You'd probably need to incorporate some advanced DSDT edits for running two graphics cards.

    Yeah, but I only want HD 3000 for OSX (for working HDMI), and Win7 should work with both automatically (if I set BIOS to start with integrated).

    Cheers.

    Are you 100% sure that you have an intel hd 3000 gpu and not a gma 3000 or x3000?

    The HD 3000 is integrated in only some of the newer sandy bridge i5 and i7

    Unless you have a secret engineering sample of the core i3 530 with a secret revision of the motherboard, you can't have the hd 3000 gpu

    I am 100% sure in my own mind -- all hardware readouts show Intel HD Graphics 3000 GPU, and I have checked TWICE with Dell themselves. I believe that this is a pre-Sandy Bridge Core i3, because it is running on an H57 Express chipset, not a SB chipset!!!

    I will enable the graphics, and look into it further from my Win7 boot!

    Many thanks... fingers crossed!
