In Topic: Just won't boot

03 December 2012 - 01:42 AM

Okay, finally got it to boot! Thanks so much. Only one last problem- the computer is reading the graphics card, but its not reading the vram and I can tell the QE/CI is not enabled. It comes up fine in the About This Mac section and definitely recognizes that it has 1024mb of VRAM, but Final Cut Pro says it doesn't have any more than 0mb. I've tried GraphicsEnabler=Yes, but not luck, is there anything else I can do?

Tried it but no success. Seems like I managed to delete the NVDA kext but when I boot with that flag it stops at the same line as before.

Also, I did try GraphicsEnabler=Y and no luck.

Thanks for the input dude, but I tried booting normally and it stuck on the grey screen, then in verbose mode it ends with:


Then after a loonnnng while it says Resetting IOCatalogue.

Definitely didn't delete anything else either! Or at least I didn't type any other lines of code!

EDIT: Accidentally put the old tinypic link!

Same thing happens in Safe Mode too. Argh!

Oh well, learning some good stuff... as aggravating as this is. If you guys/anyone has any more help, would be heaps appreciated.

Would it be advisable or non advisable to run this:

fsck -fy
mount -uw /
mkdir /kext_backup
mv /System/Library/Extensions/GeForce* /kext_backup
mv /System/Library/Extensions/NVDA* /kext_backup

Found that on another forum with someone who had the similar problem with the failed to locate SMC driver. When I think of it, it was all working fine before I installed the NVIDIA drivers.

It comes up with that when I try to boot off the USB using the expression you gave me. Thanks heaps for replying but if you'd be able to help me out again, it would help me out so much!

Thanks so much for replying!

To delete the kext file, I need to go into single-user mode, right? Not sure if I'm doing this right as I'm going off another guide on the net, but at ":/ root#" I put rm -rf /Volumes/BOSKO/Extra/Extensions/VoodooHda.kext

but then it just comes up with another ":/ root#"

so I'm guessing that didn't work?

Above it says Singleuser boot -- fsck not done
Root device is mounted read-only
If you want to make modifications to files:
/sbin/fsck -fy
/sbin/mount -uw /

Is there something I'm missing? I tried booting via the USB and it got to the end of the verbose and the last bit just went off really fast and back to black. I might try a video and get a grab of it.
