Let me start off by saying that I know that 10.8.3 is in beta right now, but I see some people are having success with it.

I have a Zotac G610 that was working in 10.8.2 with only the retail drivers. I didn't need to use Chameleons Graphics Enabler or modify any kext files.

I decided that I couldn't wait anymore and installed the 10.8.3 (12D78) and can now only boot into safe mode. I have tried enabling Graphics Enabler as well as adding my device ID to NVDAStartup.kext, but to no avail.

Normal Boot shows something like:


[AGMP Controller ] Unknown Platform

[AGMP Controller ] Unknown Platform
DSMOS has arrived
Parallels Kexts stuff
A few lines of Bluetooth stuff initiating
/drv/ hypioctls.c:779

When adding the device ID to NVDAStartup.kext I modified it like so:
<key>IOPCIMatch</key>

<string>0x104a10de&amp;0x0000ffff</string>

You need to add the dev ID's to NVDAGF100Hal.kext, not NVDAStartup.kext.

Should work in 10.8.3 OOB.

Also with the Nvidia Retail Drivers in 10.8.2 it worked OOB as well.

I tried adding the IDs to NVDAGF100Hal.kext but that didn't fix anything. I had gotten the idea of editing the NVDAStartup from http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/285707-geforce-gt-610-oob-in-1082/. I will remove all my NVIDIA related kexts and then try to update to the official 10.8.3 that was just released to see if that does anything.

Thanks for the feedback so far, I hope I can get this working.

This morning I started with a fresh install of 10.8.3, first time it booted it worked... almost. Everything looked good, until I noticed that I didn't have video acceleration. I tried editing the NVDAGF100Hal and later the NVDAStartup kexts but I am now back where I started. I am boot in Safe mode just fine, but when I try to boot with or without GE enabled and the stock kexts files I get as far as DMOS has arrived.

Any other ideas?

One other thing, for some reason when I do get a GUI to load the GUI does not fill the entire display, it leaves a 1" boarder around the display, is this in any way related?
