I am sorry I have not worked on this this week. I have surgery on my leg tomorrow, and will continue to work on it a day or two after that. The next version will support over 50 cards, and should cover all the cards you all have posted IORegs for.

Wish me luck!

Doesn't EFI Explorer do all this already for a TON of cards?
I just used it to do my 7600GT!

sorry for the newbie question, i have a geforce go6200 on my notebook, it wont work with any installer and doing the ioreg thing i obtain an empty file. The card is working only in vesa mode, maybe this the source of the problem?

The problem with EFI explorer is that you must have a working system. This project aims to setup efi strings during the install process. Of course, you can obviously use it with an existing install, but my original intentions was for use during the dvd installer.

Works great on my 8800GTS 320mb, but reporting the VRAM as 640mb instead of 320mb; where do we change this?

I hava an Nvidia Quadro NVS 140. Device ID 10de:0429. I tried both version of the command provided and I still got a blank txt file so here is my entire ioreg output. I hope the surgery goes well.

update: Just tried version 1 and I got a kernal panic. Apparently the quadro is based upon the 8400 chipset. so Maybe that would work for me as well, I will try version 2 next.

Well, back from surgery. I have a lot of catching up to do. The installer is one of my priorities, as well as my DVD release. I've been on meds that make me sleep all week. I will begin working on Beta 2 again this week, and hope to have it completed very very soon. Thanks to all who have been watching this post, and those who wished me luck on my surgery. I've now got 8 screws, and a metal plate in my leg. ( Woohoo for cybernetic aftermarket upgrades! )

Hello DevZero,

lucky to see you back :wacko: .. hope your cybernetic leg will help you with creating efi installer;)..

btw I have still no luck with ATI 3650 512mb, tried almost everything, still no work. Should I wait for your installer, or buy Nvidia ? :D .. I need 3 LCDs, and it seems lot of people successfully set up two NV cards with EFI strings..
