Hello,

when trying to install/boot Mountain Lion DP4 I get a Black Screen ( Displays go to standby) when loading the nvdagf100hal.kext.
After deleting that kext i can install and boot ML and the card will be correctly recognized as a quadro 5000. So the problem must be the driver itself.
GraphicsEnabler=Yes/No doesn't solve the problem.

Is there any known solution for this problem? Lion 10.7.4 works perfectly wi QE/CI.

Greetings from Germany,
Mark

Edit: I just solved it: the "info.plist" was missing in nvdagf100hal.kext. So i copied the one of the nvidia driver download and it worked. Curiosly the info.plist from the 10.7.4 version didn't work.

--> Full QE/CI and Resolution support now. Also maybe 5% performance increase compared to 10.7.4

Hi!

I have Nvidia Quadro 4000 Mac card.
I have some questions, I hope you can help me.
Do you use PC or Mac edition of your card?
Do you use one ore two monitor?
Do you changed anything else in chameleon.boot.org / GeForce driver under Montain Lion.
I added EFI and NVCAP strings in chameleon, after I get full resolution and 2 working output.
But, if I connect my second VGA monitor to DVI, then I hear my card FAN is going higher speed, and the output is very hot.
(I hear this under Lion 10.7.4 too.)
Everything is working, but I don't think it is normal.

Hi.
There's only a PC version of the quadro 5000.
I have 2 Monitor via DVI and DP.
No i didn't. Just GraphicsEnabler=Yes and the info.plit mentioned above.
Some said, that with his quadro 5000 he can only use this configuration (DVI + DP). DP + DP are not working because the quadro 4000 has only DVI and DP?!

I got lots of adapters from PNY:
DP to VGA
DP to DVI
DVI to VGA
Whit these adapters I can change my monitors on outputs, but I think I need to buy DP monitor for direct connection.
Two version is out from Quadro 4000. The PC has 3 output (2xDP+1DVI) and the MAC version of the card has 2 output (1DP+1DVI)

Did you tried LuxMark_v2.0_OSXIntel64 benchmark?
I get 3443 score on Luxball scene.
