Bought a 8800GT last year just because I was told it was one of the most compatible cards for OS X. But as it turns out it isn't anymore. Everything seems to be working fine with Lion and GraphicsEnabler when I use only one DVI monitor, but the moment I plug in my TV, connected with a DVI->HDMI adapter the hackintosh either freezes or if I boot with both plugged in it freezes at a grey screen after the grey Apple boot screen.
This is sadly a mayor thing for me, as I use the TV daily and really need it plugged in all the time.
I only wish there were some solution, but am I wrong? When using Snow Leopard I stayed at 10.6.2 with 10.6.1 kexts fully working, but using 10.6.1 kexts on something else than 10.6.2 caused a freeze.
So what can we do, I would love all the response possible from all of you 8800GT / 9800GT owners out there.
Why does it freeze, and how come everything worked great in Leopard and even Snow Leopard up until 10.6.2?
Thanks in advance for your help!
Here's the solution, works perfectly!
1. Download the macpro8800gt.rom
2. Rename macpro8800gt.rom -> 10de_0611.rom and put it in /Extra (or what ever dev-id you have)
2. Put this in your boot.plist (the one in /Extra)
Reboot and use both your displays with DVI/HDMI!
No problem for me so far!
