Just finished reading the whole thread. Thanks everyone and especially Macinsane. I will install OS X Lion 10.7.3 when my notebook arrives. Hopefully there aren't any problems with the B950 dual core processor. It should work according to my "research".

Hi Nick,

Yes, I've spent so much time to troubleshoot loading a rom dump from windows. It just won't damn load using chameleon/chimera.

I tried nvidiarom, videorom, etc so many. Finally I got fed up with it and just used GraphicsEnabler .


The one thing that did work for me was the custom NVCAP in device-properties (boot.plist) and even that was on 10.7.1.


I would like to know how to load the nvidia rom too properly. I have already spend weeks on every single method known to get this card to work full power. Perhaps if you find a solution, please post here.

Thank you :) A make a back up and try. :) if it doesn't help, i don't know how to make it work:(

It doesn't helped... Only VGA display work, without QE/CI but in system profile Nvidia Geforce GTS 250.

Replace it back with new drivers and it doesn't help :) OMG :rolleyes:



Oh dang!!! Reformat!



Trying repairing disk permissions with disk utility. Make new account. Reboot. Hopefully it works!

Maybe replace it with 10.6.0 drivers? What files from S/L/E i need to replace? Thanks! :blink:



Nvidia drivers change a lot and therefore it's not a good idea to use older system files on newer macos versions.

With that being said, the answer to your question is

GeForce.kext
GeForce7xxxGLDriver.bundle
GeForceGA.plugin
GeForceGLDriver.bundle
GeForceVADriver.bundle
NVDANV40Hal.kext
NVDANV50Hal.kext
NVDAResman.kext

(all GeForce and NVDA related kexts)

But, I definitely wouldn't recommend it, especially on 10.7.2 because Apple changed the Nvidia drivers on this version.

10.7.2 broke this method for me. Using one monitor now with GraphicsEnabler=Yes

I might change video cards soon. This card doesn't even give full performance in OSX. But I will definitely update when I come across something new. Sorry for HDMI, it's not working here either.

by the way, Im using the same strings from that website for the gts 250.
