Hi guys,

 

Recently re-formatted due to a failed hard drive.

After 10 or so minutes, my computer just freezes and completely hangs (unrecoverable, no error messages). Could this be a system profile thing? If so, based on my specs (signature), which profile would work best? I have been told iMac 12,2. 

 

Cheers

 

Stefano

failed HD you said? then probably time to change it instead of just reformatting it.

Yep, sorry, forgot to mention that. The hard drive is sitting in a heap. If I try to even have it plugged in (But not in use) the system will hang. If I try to boot the drive it takes around 1 hour just to load OSX, and then 15-20 minutes per mouse click. When I plugged it into my laptop, it corrupted the HDD. So, safe to say, the drive is unrecoverable. I fear a power shortage or some sort of super virus (I was looking at some dubious porn the night it broke). Needless to say the drive is unplugged and I am on a backup 1TB drive I had spare.

 

But, issue is there. If anyone could point to me any helpers it would be much appreciated as booting my computer every 10 minutes isn't pleasant.

To update, running Chameleon Wizard on the boot tab it doesn't say that I'm using my DSDT. If I select my DSDT in it, and reboot, it still boots, but this time i get a visible KP. Without it, it will work and freeze as usual.

 

I tried to put my EFI string into NV100HAL kext, but it appears the instructions may have changed for 10.8.4 as the plist file looks different?

 

Can anyone point me in the right direction as to how to stop my 560ti from locking my system up? I'm out of ideas, but it is very strange that it is fully detected (GraphicsEnabler=YES, without this display turns off after booting) and QE/CI is working but it's not stable at all.

 

Cheers

i would go for MacPro profile and use nvidia web drivers. Maybe it will make a difference.
