HiAnyone has much success installing 10.8.2 on an OptiPlex i5 980 ? I know i will need an additional GFX card as the on board one is not supported. I bought a low profile silent nVidea GT 620 as i was led to believe this was supported OOTB but it seems i was wrong.I am trying a myHack retail method and it gets stuck at the point where it seems the onboard NIC is initialised.

Any ideas?

thanks

DELETE Geforce.kext or all NVDIA.kexts, backup first

from the USB installer? As of right now i dont have an OS on this box.

As an aside what would be an OOTB working low profile GFX card for ML? In my other hack i have a silent 9600 GT and this has been perfect for 10.6, 10.7 and now 10.8 but i need something smaller for the optiplex?

thanks
