So does this mean I could run a GTX 460 on the Windows side, and a 9800 GT on the Mac side? And use the 9800 GT as a PhysX card or dual GPU on the Windows side? Has anyone tried this?

hmm.. sounds possible to use it as a physx card, but not dual gpu. you need two of the same model card to do that.

i was thinking of soldering an ON/OFF switch between the power supply and the windows-only video card.

that way when you want to boot into OSX, you can cut the power to the windows card, and when you want to boot into windows, you just leave them both running and use something like this https://www.belkin.c...oduct_Id=530062 so that you don't need to plug the monitor into the other card each time you alternate OS's.

thoughts?

try to unplug the second card from the power supply and start your machine. I think it won't boot

Glad this post exists as I'm about to upgrade my card for Win7 but the new one isn't supported in OSX.

I have a Gigabyte ex58-ud3r and run OSX and Win7 on separate drives, both use my ATI 4870 and it works fairly flawlessly in OSX. I'm upgrading my GPU to a Nvidia GTX570 and hope to still be able to run OSX well while I transition to primarily Win7 (leaving final cut and going to adobe, win7 has better better cuda options... plus I really like gaming). I'll update when I get the card and try it out.

I'm bringing out this topic out of the dust, as it covers kind of the initial title. 

 

I have 2 GPUs in a 2006 MacPro(1,1) (flashed to 2,1) - One Radeon 7970 (for Yosemite) and the original nVidia 7300(for BootScreen). 

I want to keep both cards inside the case, so at later stage to move to dual boot solution. 

 

The question is, how I can disable/blacklist the 7300 after OSX has booted? In windows there is the option to disable a hardware device... does something similar exist in OSX?

Does anyone know the proper settings to do something similar with a non-graphics related PCI devices? I have a pci audio card that takes up two pci slots that I put into my hackintosh that was working fine. I want the pci device for windows (dual boot machine) but I don't want to have to remove the device to boot osx.

 

What would be the proper boot settings to be able to still boot osx with removing pci device?

Hello,

I have found this tread too late, and I don't know if it is still active.

I have posted mine on the other subforum, I'll just repeat my question.

 

Is it possible to build an Hackintosh with dual boot on two different SSD for mac OS10.11 El Capitan, and Windows 7,

but also with two different independent graphic cards: Nvidia Quadro K4000 3G only for Mac, and Nvidia GTX 1060 6G only for Windows?

 

Usage: video editing 4K and gaming on Windows, and video editing and music on Mac.

 

My components:

 

MB ASUS X99 A-II

Intel I 7 6800K 3,4Ghz

RAM HyperX Savage Black Series 16 Go (2 x 8 Go) - DDR4 2400 MHz Cas 12

Power Seasonic Platinum +  660W

Nvidia Quadro k4000 PNY 3G (PC version) to be used for MacOS

Nvidia GeForce gtx KFA 1060 6G to be used for windows

SSD Samsung M2 950 Pro 256G (Win)

SSD Sandisk Ultra II 250G (Mac)

Case Fractal Design Define 5

 

Any thoughts would be much appreciated.
