The guide is very good but I get a message that com.apple.boot.plist is a read only file.

I'm doing -s from boot and not an install disk in terminal. When I do sudo -s from boot, I get an error. Do I need to be in terminal or can I do this from -s while booting?

***edit***

I fixed this by entering in the two lines that appeared just after the message that the root was currently read only. Thanks for the guide!

I have a error in this:

Make sure to paste the string from "out.hex" as indicated. It should be one continuous line, free of any spaces or hard returns. Now press CONTROL + X and press Y at the prompt, then hit ENTER to save the file.

He can't save this. Apper this:

[ Error writing /Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/com.apple.Boot.plist: Permission denied ]

Any Suggestion to save this?

hi!
i'm new here and i have a question. i read this post an installed the NVInstaller. But where is the info.plist? I can't find it.

I fixed my problem

Here are my steps to get my card fully working

I downloaded NVInstallerV.34.pkg (google it) then I installed it by choosing both options 256MB and 512MB

after reboot I edited inside info.plist the name of the card to Nvidia 8800GT I corrected permissions by chmod and chown another reboot and everything is fine!

look at the screenshot Posted Image Screen.tiff ( 101.9K ) Number of downloads: 91


By the way NVInstallerV.41.pkg gave me nothing but trouble I recommend 3.4 which worked great in my case


Thanx for any answers!
