Hi,

After days of trial and error, I finally have found workarounds for most issues, including binpatched AICPM and patched kernel for lapic errors.

My machine is an HP Spectre XT ultrabook, running an Ivy Bridge i5-3317U and Intel HD 4000.
So far my install is based on U{censored} and 10.8.2 app from App store, and have tried Chameleon r2064 as well as Chimera 1.11.1 as bootloaders.

I am unable to boot unless I use safe mode (-x), but there are no apparent errors or KP messages.

When not in safe mode, I stay stuck at the verbose output screen, the GUI does not start and I get no login screen.

I don't think this purely a HD 4000 graphics issue, as even when injecting incorrect device properties for the HD 4000, consequences are only felt when in safe mode.

I've attached two sets of system.logs: a failed boot in normal mode (nogui) and a successful boot in safe mode (safemode).

Any insight would be much appreciated.

Cheers,

Max

I think it's all about your GPU. Safe Mode only requires essential (root & Safe boot) kexts to boot OS X. It will bypass any problematic kexts. That's is why even you inject inccorect ID, it still works because the HD4000 kext not even loaded actually.

Can you boot with
-v UseKernelCache=No or
-v -f UseKernelCache=No or
-v -f -F UseKernelCache=No

Hi,

So npci=0x3000 gives nothing, same result.

I believe -f and UseKernelCache=No are the same, that did not work, and adding -F neither since my only configured bootflag is darkwake=0.

This is quite frustrating as without a clear error it is hard to search for new leads.

If I remember correctly, when booted in safe mode, the HD4000 kext does not appear to be loaded. I think that without injecting any device properties and with GraphicsEnabler=no I am not loading the HD4000 kext, so my screen isn't going blank or anything due to incorrect ID but instead, something is preventing "X" or "main" or "loginwindow" (whatever it is) from starting. That or it is being sent to another display/port... ?

AFAIK, for onboard HD4000, it depends on 3 kexts (HD4000, Capri, and AGPM) to work properly with acceleration. You don't need GE at all since it should get native support.

Sure, but unless I can boot without -x, I can't load these kexts. Is there any sense in trying to replace the stock kexts with modified ones?
