Basic graphics card that works out-of-box?

23 December 2013 - 04:05 PM

What would you suggest is a good basic card that works OOB on Mavericks? It should be generally available online and not require any tweaking (with kext's, boot flags, DSDT). Price would be secondary.


I bought a GeForce 210 based on info from wiki.osx86project.org and it's not going well and the card requires GE=yes.


Any feedback appreciated!


Edit: PCI-E

SSDT help - LAN1 on P9X79 WS

22 December 2013 - 02:04 AM

Hello, I'm having some problems adding 'Ethernet Built In' into rampagedev's SSDT for the P9X79 WS board. At the same time, I'm trying to use the secondary LAN device (LAN1, Intel 82574L) rather than the primary (LAN0).


I can't seem to have GIGE@0 appear in IOreg for LAN1, and the other injected entries are missing. Could anyone have a quick look at this?


I need 'Ethernet Built In' to fix my Mac App store login issue.


Thanks very much for any assistance.

Can I use more than one ethernet device? (int, ext)

12 December 2013 - 11:57 AM

I'm having some problems using an internal and external ethernet device at the same time. The internal is an Intel 82574, while the external is Realtek RTL8169E (PCI-E).


The problem stems from an issue logging into the Mac App store. The Intel works with EthernetBuiltIn, but after the Realtek is installed, the system will crash to a black screen before login (with -v boot option). So EthernetBuiltIn is not compatible with the Realtek.


Is there any way to use both NIC's? After reading this thread, it sounds like it would work with EFI string manipulation. Further complicating this is the need to use GraphicsEnabler. The card is an EVGA GeForce 210 1GB.


Sorry if this is a newbish question, any guidance would be appreciated.

Asus P9X79 WS + Xeon E5-2609 (problem)

10 November 2013 - 10:33 AM



I'm having problem installing 10.9 on this system. The specs are:


Motherboard: Asus P9X79 WS, BIOS 4404 (2013/10/18)

CPU: Intel Xeon E5-2609 v2 LGA2011 2.5GHz, Ivy Bridge-EP

Memory: (2) Kingston 4GB DDR3-1600 CL11 ECC DIMM

Video: EVGA GeForce 210 1GB PCI-E

Storage: Kingston Digital SSDNow V300 120GB SDD


With myHack 3.3.1, I made an installer USB and replaced the kernel with the experimental one (supposedly this one) in the dmg package by Rampage Dev. With standard boot parameters, I can reach the Welcome screen of the installer. But after clicking the circle arrow to proceed, it will crash and display the installer log, which is attached. The main error seems to be indicated at line 103 with 'Code Signature Invalid'. I've tried:


1. Using -x and other parameters.

2. Newest kernel by stinga11 (link).

3. Disabled any auto OC functions in BIOS.


I don't know what else to do. Apologies if I'm missing something obvious.
