As stated in the Type11 method thread, you need to re-run the package on the boot132 CD after the 10.5.5 update.

Whoooo Hoooooo I am back to 1024 x 600

Found this over at MSIWind forum.

At any rate, the only thing that solved the problem after installation was to reinstall the GMA 950 video drivers and it's associated kexts, then repair permissions and reboot cold.

Download the drivers, drag the 3 kext files onto Kext Helper to install, fix permissions, and reboot.

props go to OU812? on the forum.

Note: If you used my method this is NOT the way to fix things. kext changes need to go into the efi partition. If you used darktens method this is also NOT the way to fix things. They should go into Extras folder.

Only do it that way if you used iAtkos or similar not the retail methods

using kext helper puts them into the normal location and the next update will delete them.
