i just bought the same exact deal and same thing happened to me. I've tried a variety of things, and will try a 2nd 9600 tomorrow as well as seeing if my 1st one is dead by plugging it into a good computer. I don't understand if the video card is good how some people are getting the 9600 to work?

Hi tehmachacker!

I am a newbie and like you I also have the exact same machine except for the 9600gt. Did you have any luck installing snow leopard? I'm trying to install SnowOSX Universal v3.5 but mine gets stuck at AppleDecrypt: Starting ...

I really like OSX and I really would appreciate any help installing it.

Thanks in advance.

Yup I have this machine and am running Snow Leo just fine, although only in 32bit. I'm looking to move to Lion but I think being stuck at 32 is preventing the upgrade. I'd appreciate any help with this issue.

I'd also being willing to help get anyone as far as I've gotten.
