MSI GT680 - 10.6.6 installed, needs small fixes

1 post in this topic

Recommended Posts

I've installed a retail copy of 10.6.0, did the combo update to 10.6.6, ran [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] (chose [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url]), installed the BridgeHelper, installed the Nvidia Fermi drivers by tonymacx86, rebooted.



- Core i7-2630QM

- 8GB RAM (4x2GB)

- Nvidia GTX 460M 1.5GB

- 64GB SSD (Win7+OS X)

- 500GB HDD (Data)

- Realtek LAN (detected, assuming it works)

- Intel PRO WiFi 1000 (won't work, which is fine)


Things that worked in 10.6.0:

- Audio (surprisingly)

- Internal trackpad and keyboard

- Ethernet


Things that DON'T WORK in 10.6.6:

- Audio

- Internal trackpad and keyboard

- CPU profile (About This Mac says "4.30GHz Unknown")

- RAM profile (About This Mac says "4 GB 800MHz DDR2 SDRAM")

- WiFi (won't ever work)

- Secondary monitor


Things that WORK in 10.6.6:

- QE/CI with the GTX 460M :D

- Webcam in Photo Booth


Here's the arguments that I'm booting with: -v busratio=8 maxmem=4096 arch=i386


I'm sure I can get audio and the keyboard/trackpad to work. What I want to work is proper System Profiler recognition, and my secondary monitor. My monitor is plugged in, but clicking on the Detect button does nothing. I've connected my monitor via VGA. I haven't tried it with HDMI yet.


I also want to get all 4 cores working, as well as my 8GB RAM :).
