Hi Guys,

I installed Lion 10.7.3 (Kakewalk methode) on Gigabyte: GA EX58 UD5 with a nvidia quadro FX5800.. installation and everything works fine, System is running perfectly the only problem the quadro fx5800 is not supported just 1024pix so I got a simple Nvidia GT520 but it in the same slot where the FX5800 was insert.. but instate of the boot screen or the boot loader is just a black screen..

Also if I plug in the USB install stick, doesn't show anything just black.. by putting back in the FX5800 everything is working (System and Installation)... It look like that there is already a panic at before the boodloader starts, any ideas ?

Its impossible for a system to panic before the bootloader comes up. If you aren't even getting the boot screen then you've either installed the card into your system incorrectly (checked power supply?) or the card is faulty.
