Hi, I got this too, when i used the older Lion 10.7.0 kext with Lion 10.7.2, try editing a original 10.7.2 kexts and use that.
Rebuild cache and repair permitions with kext tool.


EDIT: I wound up installing fresh on another drive and all is well now. :)

Hi everyone,
So today I tried doing the 10.7.2 combo update (after cloning my HDD). My monitor only shows one resolution in the display preferences now, although in system info it identifies my GPU properly. I re-added my device id to NVDAGF100Hal.kext (1080, for the GTX580), made sure my org.chameleon.Boot.plist file had graphicsenabler set to yes, and added the empty Graphics entry that others have mentioned on here. Any ideas? I've seen a couple people mention using "ATY enabler" to get full-resolution working, but I haven't been able to dig up much on that, and some of it is pretty old.

Thanks for any help!

EDIT:
Ok, so I installed ATY enabler, and now whenever I boot, it looks like it's loading at the proper resolution.. But it shows the login screen for a few moments, then goes to a black screen, then back to the login screen, repeat ad nauseam. ;)

I can boot fine with -x -v, but of course I don't have video acceleration then. Anybody have any ideas? I should add, I went to put my original drive back in my computer (I've been doing all this (the 10.7.2 update, etc) on the clone of my original drive), and it seems to have died (sounds horrible, so seems like a hardware fault). So, at this point I'm getting desperate since my clone is my only option at this point. :D

Alright, so my card didn't get detected. I then installed ATY_Init with Tonymacx86's ##### and rebooted. The Apple logo is in wrong resolution like before, but after that my monitor doesn't get any signal at all at just becomes black. Does anyone have an idea? I've tried booting with PCIRootUID=0, but it didn't help. I also tried with GraphicsEnabler=No and -x, but that just resulted in the Apple Logo loading for ever... First I figured it might be because I didn't rebuild cache and kexts, but one thinks that ##### would to that for you.

Just got a GTX 560 (not the Ti version) I'm showing a device ID of 0x1201. Can anyone else confirm this?

I want to make sure before I edit the NVDAGF100Hal.kext for my specific device. Any information would be appreciated.

I looked it up here and it shows some confusing information, a GTX 570....

Hi,

I've a huge problem. I think that I've tried all possible combinations, but without luck.

What I've tried so far:
Only the first GTX580 + NVDAGF100Hal.kext including the device id + Graphics Enabler + npci=0x2000 = System hangs at "PCI Configuration Begins"
Only the second GTX580 + NVDAGF100Hal.kext including the device id + Graphics Enabler + npci=0x2000 = System hangs at "Still waiting for root device"
Both GTX580 + ATY_Init + Graphics Enabler + npci=0x2000 = System profiler detects a NVIDIA Geforce with 7MB Memory
Both GTX580 + NVDAGF100Hal.kext including the device id + Graphics Enabler + npci=0x2000 = No graphics card detected
Both GTX580 + EFI string + npci=0x2000 = Kernel panic
Both GTX580 + EFI string + npci=0x2000 + Verbose = No graphics card detected

Kernel log of my last try:

...
13.01.12 21:23:46,000 kernel NVClockX: Card: 0, Vendor ID: 10de, Device ID: 1080, Architecture: 1000000, GF100 [GeForce GTX 580]

What could the problem be? Any suggestions are welcome!

Hello.
Today I've installed Iatkos L2.
Was unable to boot in regular mode, but was able to boot with '-x'.
My graphics card is MSI GeForce GTX 560 Ti Twin Frozr / OC (1 GB).
Then I installed "GTX 5xx Enabler" (without ATY).
Then I generated an EFI with OSX86 Tools, and pasted it to the '/Extra/org.chameleon.Boot.plist' file.

Its contents are:

<key>Graphics Mode</key>
<string></string>
</dict>
</plist>

Now it doesn't hang at the "Initializing PCI (whatever)...".
Now it hangs at this stage:

NVDAGF100HAL loaded and registered
NVEnabler : init : begin
NVEnabler : probe : probe
NVEnabler : probe : ROM Shadow enable

It hangs there strangely: sometimes it can even print half a symbol after those lines, and then hangs.

Tried ATY_init with no luck (the same).

Can you advice me to try anything else?

Hi,

ok, I've done that, but it doesn't change anything

Here are the messages I get from Chameleon concerning the graphics cards:
Only the first card installed with Graphics Enabler: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 580 3072 MB
Only the second card installed with Graphics Enabler: efi_inject_get_devprop_string NULL trying stringdata
Both cards installed with Graphics Enabler: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 580 -4xxx MB (don't remember the exact figure)
Both cards installed with EFI String: efi_inject_get_devprop_string NULL trying stringdata

What does that mean?

@ kuchumovn: Use only one injection method! So, delete NVEnabler and either your EFI String or Graphics Enabler in your Boot.plist.

Regards

Hi MatzeOS86!

Before I messed my system up trying to get my bluetooth to work I actually got my Zotac GTX580 to work fine.
I got the fermi kexts from http://iparsifal.org/osx/ and post-installed the following:
NVDAGF100Hal GTX580 10.7.2 11C43.kext.zip
GeForceGLDriver.bundle 10.7.2 11C43.zip
AppleGraphicsPowerManagement.kext GTX580 10.7.2 11C43.zip

Plz let me know if you get it to work as I will try and install my whole system all over again.

Regards

Thanks,

MatzeOS86.


Indeed, I was using NVEnabler with other tricks simultaneously, and maybe that was the cause that it froze.


Today I reinstalled L2, without NVEnabler, and then installed GTX 5xx Enabler, and having a black screen with a white bar now.


I'll try the manuall method next time.

Good news.
I've reinstalled Iatkos L2 once again.
I chose in the Customize there: "IOPCI whatever", "GF100" for nvidia, and my Atheros network card drivers (and drivers for my IDE disks).
Then, after installation, it gave me 1024x768 resolution.
I edited the info.plist file (the last device there was something ilke 1204whatever, and i just replaced the '1204' digits there with '1200').
This file was saved to my documents and then I dragged and dropped it into the NVHDwhatever100.kext package (show package contents).
It asks for the password - enter it, and push 'overwrite' file.
Then reboot.
And here we go - 1080i.

The next steps will be: enabling CLI, installing CUDA, and running Cinebench benchmarks.
But this will be tomorrow: it's already 3 a.m. in Moscow.

Thanks to all you guys.
I'm forced to leave my Windows 7 because Git (version control system) there messes up file name encoding.
Encoding in Windows is a pain actually.
That's why i'm moving to OS X.
And also because it's sexy.
But I'll miss "maximize window" functionality a lot.

One more comment from me.
Cinebench gives me 27 fps, which is actually sufficient, since I'll use windows as my gaming platform, and hackintosh will be my work platform.
What bothered me was the sound of the Twin Frozr cooling system mounted on my MSI GTX 560 Ti (1G).
At some time it just started spinning and produced considerable noise (i own a silent pc, composed it by myself) though I wasn't using any 3D app and watched no video, etc.

After some experimenting I found that the fans start spinning after I leave my PC for a while and then come back.
I think I found the culprit: it's the "Display sleep" property.
You can find it in "System Preferences", "Energy Saver".
Move the slider to the right when it says "Never".
Now the fans shouldn't go crazy anymore.

Could the problem be the "npci=0x2000" flag?
Without it the system gets stuck at the "PCI configuration begin" message, but with the flag the graphics card doesn't get detected...

Have you tried to remove one of the two 580 cards? If I were you I would try and make one card work and mount the other as a second step.
