Hi folks!

 

I have installed the retail ML in my Hackintosh (following the InsanelyMac guide! Thank you!) and w/ the strings, my GPU was successfully recognized.

 

But I'm just able to boot in safe mode, with no QE/CI but full resolution. The GeForce was recognized via strings!

But why the hell I'm only able to boot in safe mode? And I don't remember exactly, but I had a Mac, and I'm almost sure that QE/CI loads in safe mode...

 

https://www.dropbox....13 16 24 04.jpg this is when I boot in safe mode, just before the login screen

 

https://www.dropbox....13 16 36 22.jpg this is when i boot in normal mode. The screen freezes here

 

Also, I have edited AppleGraphicsPowerManagement kext. I went to my smbios name string, and edited to the GT430 device & vendor ID. When I boot this way (in safe mode), I get a beautiful screen turned off, so I rolled back to the default AppleGraphicsPowerManagement

 

So I took off the GPU and used HD4000 to see the difference. The graphics works resolution and it's recognised with no QE/CI (just like the Geforce, no acceleration because I'm using VGA I guess - with the Geforce I can use DVI or VGA) but BOOTS IN NORMAL MODE, since I'm using VGA and have do edit some stuff.

 

So I have 2 big problems: no QE/CI and no normal mode - this GeForce won't let me boot in normal mode!!!

 

Another thing is that I NEED to use the GeForce, and a lot of people can get it working in hackintosh, it's not fear lol! I work with 3D modelling (I know, a need a bigger screen) in Windows and its huge the difference, since the onboard shares my memory.

 

Here is my recognized GeForce https://www.dropbox.... 6.03.44 PM.png

 

And here is my recognized HD4000 https://www.dropbox.... 6.46.15 PM.png

 

EDIT: Also, I noticed that the verbose mode w/ the HD4000 loads with full resolution. The GeForce verbose stays at 1024x768. I don't know if this changes something.

 

Thank you for the help!

 

My specs:

AsRock DTA-H61 Motherboard

i7 3770 - 3.4 up to 3.9Ghz

The onboard Intel HD4000

NVidia Geforce GT 430 1GB RAM

4GBRAM DDR3

750GB HDD

SOLVED

 

I booted in windows and I repaired HD4000 was still turned on. So I disabled all its features in BIOS and here we go!

 

I could not boot without safe mode because IntelHD4000 kexts was loading and for sure led to a KP

 

Now the GeForce is 100% working!
