Ok. My GMA 950 works fine, so the MacBooks are *probably* safe.

Is the bug in the driver, or in the hardware? It would seem strange that Intel couldn't support a standard from 1994.

The only real way to know is to try it, since the developers probably don't have the resources to try all the hardware out there. My guess is that the 9xx and X-series ones will work fine. Try out the LiveCD, before you commit to an install.

the thing is that it is useless to me to test ros in real hardware because no one of my pcs have serial ports to get a debug output

A debugger wouldn't be necessary to find out if the card worked, although it would be handy to find out why it didn't, if that were the case.

I'm pretty sure they make serial ports that'll fit on a PCI card. I don't know anything about them, though.

EFI can emulate a legacy BIOS.
