Hi all,

I am using a T400s
with intel gMA 4500mhd in GS45 chipset 1440x900
Intel SP 9400 CPU
8g DDR 3 ram

official spec list there
http://support.lenovo.com/en_US/detail.page?LegacyDocID=MIGR-72868

The 4500mhd after install the about this Mac show it is x3100 with 64m ram

I can using USB boot by boot flags with -x to install the OS X Mavericks no problems

and on second boot I try this boot flags
-v "Graphics Mode"="1440x900x32"

it hang on mcache: 2 CPU(s), 64 bytes CPU cache line size
waitForSystemMapper
Backtrace 0xfffffff800060395b xxxxxxx xxxxxxxxxx xxxxxxxx 0x0 0x0 0x0

this is it


but if using -x "Graphics Mode"="1440x900x32" it can boot to install first time install welcome screen for me to setting and final can see the desktop at native 1440x900.

MulitBeast what setting for this can fix the without -x boot?
it can install the ps/2 and mousepad to reboot using the build in keyboard and mousepad.


any idea are welcome.

Thank you of the time and help.

GMA 4500MHD is not supported by any version of OS X. Time to get a new laptop...

RehabMan,

Thank you very much.

One more questions. Do if the GPU on this Apple Official KB List, then it will 100% sure work on any PC base Notebook or something like this?

http://support.apple.com/kb/ht3246

If it work, hope TonyMacX86 add this List on the forum for all user. So for notebook user, someone not want to choose Brand on some reason still can have a standard for following.

Thank you very much of your kind help and answer.

There is no such thing as 100% sure on hackintosh, especially with laptops.
