if i put Aty_init.kext in S/L/E i've a panic
i've two graphics card Intel X4500 (not interested to enable it) + Nvidia GT130M 1GB DDR3
temporary solution: disable intel from bios... (then aty_init.kext works fine)

I moved this from bugs to feature requests......

You say you have no interest in enabling the Intel graphics, I guess you mean you don't want to enable it in OSX but you want to use it in another OS that you boot, is that correct?

I'm not sure if Chameleon can disable hardware or if that is a feature the devs think would be useful enough to spend the time coding.  We'll have to wait for one of them do drop by and enlighten us both.

Sorry I can't help more.

Both are possibilities but neither are Chameleon related.  If there is a bug in aty_init then you need to find the dev who wrote it and report the bug to him.  If there are kexts required to support hybrid sli I don't know what they would be or where you would find them.
