In Topic: New OS X compatible motherboard -> QUO

08 February 2014 - 02:05 AM

Well, I am typing from the phone right now, but the short version of how I sorted my problem was to flash the 828 bios version from the "secret" webpage as opposed to the one that is shared on the wiki.

They are supposed to be the same but... Using the other one I managed to ignore the guides and completely disable internal GPU and all worked.


Thanks for the reply! Any chance I could get the link you used to get the version of the 828 firmware that worked for you?

Just a bumb, cause I am still looking for a reply to this - right now I am stuck with the internal graphics, which suck for anything else except basic tasks...


Mind you my problem concerns usage under Windows 8


I wanted to reply to this just to let you know you are not alone… I'm running Mac OS X with no problem and my GTX760 works fantastically, but Windows is a pain. I was able to get it to work for over a month by setting up Windows on integrated graphics, installing my card's drivers, then finally changing the setting for IGPU. This morning when I turned on my computer, no more Windows video.


I've given up for now on getting Windows (7 or 8) to work on this system, it's not worth the amount of trial and error I've had to go through.

Ok, weirdly enough, changing my Apple ID password was all that I needed to do to get iMessage working.  I guess my account must have been in some sort of funky half locked, we know you're doing something weird so we want you to call us state.  The account was still fine everywhere else, but for whatever reason changing the password got it working on the Hackintosh also!

Too late to help, but for anyone searching for the same issue, after setting SystemSerial:

- navigate to your user library (~/Library/)
- do a search for iMessage
- trash all the related plists
- reboot

I'm guessing resetting your password performed the same function of removing any stored account information from logins attempted before setting your serial.

The BIOS(Ozmosis) revision has nothing to do with that, its more like you playing with fakesmc and its plug-ins..

I wont ask for darwindumper to prove that, make sure you don't use experimental kernel extensions and all will be fine...


@all with nvidia 7xx cards, I invertigate the issue(s) reported here, will post my conclusions/recommandations after I have a clear picture.


I've got a 760 and bios revision 828, let me know if there's anything I can do to help/test.

After flashing BIOS "Init Display" and "Integrated Graphics" will be set to "AUTO". 
To use your GTX670 set "Init Display" to "IGPU" and "Integrated Graphics" to "Enabled".

I had the same issue with a GTX 760, the above settings got it so I could boot OS X and Windows 8 and have video connected to the graphics card, but as far as I could tell neither system was actually using the GTX 760 for processing. Windows showed an error (Code 12) in Device Manager for the Nvidia card, and Mac OS X reported both cards, but was scoring rather low on a Geekbench test. I also tried disabling the integrated graphics and defaulting Init Graphics to PCIe, but that goes back to the issue of a Quo logo then a black screen with a flashing cursor prompt.

Will setting Init Display to IGPU and Integrated Graphics to enabled actually allow the system to use Nvidia graphics? Is there something I should be changing in the BIOS settings or writing to the UEFI shell?
