Incorrect Resolution - Troubleshooting - Hackintosh Zone Jump to content


Hi everyone,


i've spent the last week trying to figure out how to get the correct resolution which is "1366x768" for my graphics. my card seems to be compatible with the pre-installation kext and i can't seem to figure out what the problem is.


i have tried to change it in the display with the option button, but my resolution still won't show in the selection. i have tried the chameleon.plist string but it still doesn't correct the problem.


should i downgrade to Mountain Lion or Lion? would that fix my problems?



any advice or solution would really be appreciated!

When i install clover as a boot loader, do i need to a fresh since i've already installed chameleon? or do i just install it directly?

Thanks for the reply btw!


PS: this is the screen(Attached jpg) that i'm getting right now at 1366x768 via switchres

      the external monitor vga attached is working properly, but the internal display is as mentioned

clover is also like Chameleon but has more features --use clover configurator similar as Chameleon Wizard to configure you Config.plist 


select Graphics/Ati/Inject

I booted from Clover EFI usb and activated "Inject ATI, EDID, VBIOS" in the graphics option

worked great! 



I guess i have to re install Mavericks again since i've installed chameleon on the setup i've made earlier, unless you can refer me to another loophole/procedure to installing clover as the main bootloader for hackintosh


Thanks for the help!!

just download Slytherin or Clover .pkg for installing will automatically rule over Chameleon and you will not lose anything ,,,if you a want Fresh installation that will also better but your choice ..

    • Hi, I have a HP G61-415ES with this configuration:
      Intel Pentium T4300 Dual Core 4GB RAM NVIDIA GeForce G 103M My Wifi card is AR5B95 (aka. 9285), and yes: works well with Windows, isn't broken. The thing is, I succesfully installed Niresh 10.8.5 and works perfect, but I tried and tried to get WiFi conection (no Wifi icon on status bar, no Wifi on Network settings)
      I tried installing io80211family.kext, RehabMan-Atheros, toledaARPT.kext and nothing. No icon, no settings... Also I read something about patch DSDT but I don't get nothing clear about how to use or how to patch, all guides are too complex for a person that don't have knowledge of that things. Also a lot of files fo download are missing and a lot of links to get reference are broken, and that increase the complexity of the problem.
      I have a PowerMac G5 MOD working very well, but obviosly I made with the ¨Buyer's Guide¨ and I didn't got any major trouble, but with this laptop it's guiving me headache
      I don't know what to do now, I'm reinstalling again 10.8.5 but I don't have more ideas.
