Finally got my GTX 570's to work and get past the PCI CONFIGURATION error. I was using HDMI and it didn't even cross my mind to use DVI, but once I did the system stuck on PCI CONFIG for a few seconds then flashed and worked perfectly. Didn't even see the rest of the verbose mode output. All I needed was ATY_Init 64 bit and my devce ID (1081) in the NVDAGF100.kext.
success on my dual VGA (nvidia + ATI) setup.
Now the only thing left is testing it without the ATI card.
Single card (GTX 570) works as well!! But there seems to be a problem with performance. When having two cards installed the GTX had about 43fps and now only 10fps in Cinebench's OpenGL benchmark. QE/CI seems to be working though. However it still shows only 512MB out of 1248MB VRAM.
Mine was also stuck on "PCI config begin", but after a couple seconds the screen changed to black, grey and blue and then......Voila! there was the Lion desktop. My first successful boot and login after 7hours and trying out many different things.
I think what really happens there..... the screen is actually freezed and Mac OS is continuing loading kexts etc.
You can test it when you press space or enter key. Usually you can see moving the cursor.
ATIinit loaded my GTX 570 as a generic GeForce with 512MB RAM. Ok, that needs to be corrected in the future, but QE/CI seems to work fine because of the water ripples in Dashboard.
There is one more thing though. I need to do some restarts and delete
because it often hangs at
nstat lookup entry failed: 2
Does anybody know what that could mean?
I quote myself to add it's still happening after updating from dp2 to dp3
QUOTE]Why do I get this screen right before the desktop appears? (In 11a419 only)
It happens using either Natit, NVEnabler, ATY_init, dsdt injection, efi string...
My graphics card is a gtx260 which is working perfectly under SL and Lion DP1. Anybody has a clue?
I don't know exactly, I guess it's because of random 0s and 1s bits left in the VRAM of the graphics card.
In my case the ATI 5770 shows sometimes the same before getting to the login screen (=first time initializing high level QE/CI driver so to speak). Sometimes I have to do a restart because the monitor turns on and off itself.
I've never had these symptoms when I had a GTX 275 on Snow Leopard though.
