Hello everybody,
I have recently installed iakatos ML2 on a Zotac Ion ITX A E board (graphic card nVidia GeForce 9400m 512MB) but I am not able to get graphic acceleration.
After upgrading to 10.8.3 I had to delete the kext NVDA*.kext from S/L/E because they were blocking the boot.
Using Champlist I can change the resolution but in System Information / Graphics Displays I get:

Type: GPU
Bus: PCI
VRAM (Total): 5MB
Vendor: NVIDIA (0x10de)
Device ID: 0x087d
Revision ID: 0x00b1
Kernel Extension Info: No Kext Loaded
Displays:
Resolution: 10280 x 1024
Pixel Depth 32-Bit Color (ARGB8888)
Main Display: Yes
Mirror: Off
Online: Yes

I tried several alternative kext but nothing...
This is my first hachintosh and I'm not very expert.
Can someone provide me with any suggestion, please?

Dear Artur,
thank you very much for your reply.
I'm following the guide from the link you provided.

I have added the EFI string to my org.chameleon.Boot.plist and now seems that System Information recognizes my card:
nVidia GeForce 9400m:
Chipset Model: nVidia GeForce 9400m
Type: GPU
Bus: PCI
VRAM (Total): 512 MB
Vendor: NVIDIA (0x10de)
Device ID: 0x087d
Revision ID: 0x00b1
ROM Revision: nVidia GeForce 9400m OpenGL Engine [EFI]
Displays:
Display:
Resolution: 1280 x 1024
Pixel Depth: 32-Bit Color (ARGB8888)
Main Display: Yes
Mirror: Off
Online: Yes

But, even if the card seems to be recognized I don't see any improvement in the HW acceleration.
Any other suggestion?
Thank in advance.
