I can only see them if I hook up a second monitor to the on-board DVI connector
 
You mean if you add secondary monitor on DVI you get desired screen on it or it will activate the  screen on apple display?

The bios/boot menu only appear if the dvi is connected, and it only appears on that display. The apple display is "dead" until the white screen with the apple logo or the "starting windows" shows up. I can load a video if it helps.

No need for video, I understand the issue, problem is I don't know how it can be fixed, since I don't have such display, I canot replicate the bug, so only advice is for you to try DVI with adapter when in the need, sorry.

I've experienced this before with some Apple Displays on other hacks .. from what I remember some Apple Displays don't have matching VESA modes to display BIOS screens (res. too low). I did not see any option in the QUO AOS BIOS to adapt and increase the boot screen res, so unless you find such option you most likely not be able to use the Apple Display for anything BIOS related.

 

Only other option I can think of that MIGHT work: purchase an active adapter. But no guarantee that'll really work.

@BugsB he also said that bootloader menu does not show up, that shouldn't be at low resolution, so I am not sure it is the issue with low resolution, indeed the BIOS menu is at low resolution.

Its possible that you have to set the CSM boot mode to legacy only in the BIOS. See if that works. If not try UEFI only. Legacy only has fixed it on most of the high rez monitors i have had issues with.

My current issue: Cannot get the GTX 760 to work in Windows. Integrated graphics (HD4000) works in Windows 7 and Mac OS X 10.8.5. GTX 760 works in Mac OS X but Windows hangs at 'Starting Windows'. Init display is set to Auto, as is Integrated Graphics.

 

edit: I think I've learned a little more about the problem- the GTX 760 doesn't have UEFI GOP support. I tried setting PCI ROM control to legacy first but that more or less stopped the graphics card from working all together. Anyone know of a workaround, or could point me in the right direction?

akindy,

I have not tested with Windows 7; however, I had no issues with an UEFI install of Windows 8 and the GTX760 listed in my signature. Im currently connected via a DVI-D Dual Link.

Is you do a UEFI install of Windows 7?

What did the trick?

Legacy or UEFI Only?

Is important to know, b/c I also suspect a bug on Intel GOP driver, even is latest version...

CSM = Compatibility Support Module, the combination of EfiCompatibility, CompatibilitySmm, and Compatibility16. The portion of the Framework that allows compatibility with non-EFI compliant operating systems to run on Framework firmware. Basically it is the legacy non-UEFI BIOS mode.

Would be great, if the update to mavericks will work without any problems. But I think it is neccessary to update direct from app store and patch the audio again, but are there any new legacy files?

PKG from post #635 does cover audio for 10.9.

The package also contains the 10.8 patch isn't it? I thought this is only another way to patch the audio in a simpler way.
