In Topic: Any PCI Card Recommendations for Snow Leopard?

22 February 2010 - 09:14 PM

the 6200 pci worked in leo, i dont know about snow leo tho, dont have thay mach no more

yeah. it work great in Leopard. Both EFI Strings and NVinject work fine and give full QE/CI. Snow Leopard is no go though. NVInject will give full resoultion but no QE/CI. EFI Strings causes blue/gray flashing screen at login window (no desktop). When I boot with -x -v -f the desktop will load full res with EFI strings but since QE/ci is disabled on safe boot it seems this may be what is causing the issue.

I have one PCIE x1 slot...useless as they are any cards I can find so I need a supported at least in theory PCI card for Snow Leopard that will do QE/CI. I do a ton of video work and its kind of a show stopper without.

In Topic: GeForce 6200 AGP on SL

20 February 2010 - 04:47 PM


I have an AGP GeForce 6200 that worked well on Leopard with almost all of the injectors(NVdarwin, NVEnabler, NVInject, EFI Strings, etc) but on Snow Leopard it just boots on a blue screen and then the blue screen changes to a darker blue and then back to the first blue and so on. Only with NVinject I got resolution change, but not QE/CI.

I heard on #snowleopard@osx86.hu that SL doesn't support AGP, but I checked IOPCIFamily.kext(that is where the driver for AGP resides) source from darwin 10.6 and it mentions AGP support, so i don't think they dropped the AGP support.

Anyone got any success running SL with AGP VGA's?

Does anyone know if the DSDT patching will enable QE/CI on a 6200 PCI card (not AGP). I am having the same issue. It works fine in Leopard with NVinject but in Snow Leopard I have tried every injector/EFI string I can find. I have never done a DSDT patch and my SL install is from the myHack installer with the chocolate_kernel (older proc)

In Topic: USB or PCI Wireless Card

19 February 2010 - 12:41 PM

Hey guys and gals.
I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions on a USB or PCI wireless internet card that is compatible with 10.5.
I would only be using it for things like LAN partys, or when i take my computer outside my house, otherwise i am hard wired.
So yeah, any info would be appreciated.

Laptop or Desktop? I a using a Proxim WD-8470 Gold PCMCIA in my laptop on 10.5.6 and it works great. People have a lot of success with the Belkin and the Netgear stuff but you have to be careful on the model numbers and revisions. Check the HCL over here for a more detailed list. Just be aware that your install may be different from someone elses and be prepared to play with the Terminal and some kexts.

In Topic: [SOLVED] Enabling Quartz?

With that graphics card, the NVEnabler 64 may not work. You might try Natit. Also, I'm not sure about getting Quartz with the 6200 chipset. I forget if I was able to get Quartz working with my older 5200. I realize they're not the same chipset, but I think that Quartz will only work on series 7 or higher graphics cards. Correct me if I'm wrong though.

thanks. i have quartz working with that card NVInject on 10.5.2 so maybe its just a SL thing. Hard time findind video cards as the only pcie slot i have is an x1 hence the PCI cards. Havent tried natit yet so I might give that a go. I also tried adding device ID to the kexts and nothing. The closest I have gotten is by swapping the nvidia/geforce kexts with the one from my Leopard install. The screen output is garbled and red but I get a mouse pointer. MIght also try EFI strings again. A ton of post say that is the way to go so maybe i just hosed mine up somehow. About ready to give up and grab a new card if I can find a PCI card that will work well.

What graphics card do you have? Is it a laptop chipset or a desktop graphics card? I'm not 100% sure what would cause a flashing screen.

Its a PNY Verto GeForce 6200 PCI 256MB.
