This is getting off-topic, you should move this to graphics section (and repatch your DSDT to reflect your 8800GT). By the way, if you use "UseNvidiaRom", you're supposed to provide a ROM file for your card. Is that the case?


The above plist is what I am currently using without the ROM for 1 monitor. Adding the rom did not work. Anyway...


I only posted here just to check if anyone knew if the issue was with the boot loader or the current version of it. In my search of the web, I have run into some talk of it.


I have posted the issue here if anyone has any input. Thanks

There's a chance you need to specify the correct PCI root Id as defined in BIOS DSDT. You can get it through Terminal command ioreg -l | grep -15 "AppleACPIPCI\ " | grep UID


If returned value is different from 0, try and boot with PciRoot=x, where x is the returned value for _UID parameter.


I have a 9800GT on one of my desktop and could not get fullQE/CI + dual screen until I sussed out that the default PCI root was set to 4 and I booted with Chameleon option PciRoot=4. I subsequently modified the DSDT to change PCI0 _UID parameter from 4 to 0, thereby removing the need to boot with the option.


The value I get is 0.


I am running on a clean/new DSDT with all patches for my motherboard applied except I did video card injection int chameleon.boot.plist as follows: (my old DSDT from ML had injection in it but would not work, so I decided to go this route this time).

was there any change in Chameleon for working with "UseNvidiaROM"?


I am just getting to Mavericks and test installed using 2.2svn-r2377.  Only thing holding me back atm to move to Mavericks on main system, is I can not get dual monitors working. It is an MSI 8800GT 2xDVI and one is hooked up to my TV via DVI->HDMI cable. If I use "UseNvidiaRom" as in the past it dose not work and the boot hangs on gray screen.


Am I missing something, please point me in the right direction.

This dose not work for 10.9.x (I'm testing on 10.9.3), any new solution for dual displays with this card?
