Noob cred: I have been trying for 2 weeks now to get this thing working, have read everything I can, and I'm at my wits end.  So far I have tried:

 

10.8.4, running beautifully (video notwithstanding) on vostro 200.  Chameleon 2.2

 

GraphicsEnabler

NVEnabler, NVEnabler64, NVInject

EFI string in plist

flashing new rom ala http://www.s15515867...512cardrom.html

puting device id's in plist

newer NVidia drivers

putting device IDs in THOSE plists

 

Every combination of the above.

 

GraphicsEnabler and EFI strings identify it correctly, but no accel.

NVEnabler has some probe fails, takes forever on DSMOS message, then goes to frozen login screen

newer NVidia driver mostly hang at DSMOS, or give me frozen login screen

 

What am I missing?  Do I need an older chameleon? OSX sees the card accurately, but no love

 

Thanks!  I was so hoping to figure this out myself-

Not supported in ML. 32 bit mode in Lion you may have luck with the card.

32 bit only and really it is time to update your GPU :)
