  1. I tried -x safe mode but I'm just a learning so I used a ready edited kext for my card and installed it with KextWizard and repaired and rebooted but it hangs after the card is registered then will not go back into safe mode! - so, after a few image restores! I noticed the Kext plist was missing the 'a' in the pci id and then I found an edited kext on this website which does have the right pci id so I installed that using [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] and now it still hangs in full mode? - but the good news, I can still get into safe mode. I'll do a screen shot of the hang if anyone has any ideas then please let me know.
  2. Thank you to Gringo Vermelho - I will experiment with that.
  3. Hello folks I've successfully installed ML on Asus P5G41T-M LX V2 using Niresh disc. I now want to fit my Geforce GT610 PCI-E card to replace the onboard graphics but I don't want to get it wronge - Do I install the kext before installing the card? or fit the card first?

    Hi guys - Roy here - I build & fix PC's locally in our small town - Thanks for all the help and support on this site. It's enabled me to build a hack for a friend - he's being forced to upgrade from power-pc G5 & can't afford the Mac hardware. With your help I've managed to get the Asus P5G41T-M LX ver.2 motherboard running SL10.6.6 (with Core2 Quad, 4GB DDR3 & Nvidia GT220 PCI-e card). I had to disable Audio and LAN in bios before installation & re-enable after loading kexts - with kexts helper. Please note this motherboard is the 41T model and Asus shows the wronge network chip in their website spec - It's not the Atheros chip so don't use the Atl1ekext_x64_20100430 kext. A stronge magnifyier reveals it's a Realtek chip and the motherboard driver disc confirms this as it contains only Realtek RTL8136/8168/69 NDIS6 windows drivers. The RealtekRTL81xx.kext works fine and the VoodooHDA.kext works with the Audio chip. I initially used a 1.5TB Seagate sata3 HDD as 2 x 750GB partitions but it wouldn't boot after the install - I got "boot0: error". I read somewhere that the drive needs to < 1TB so I replaced it with a single WD 750GB sata2 HDD and that boots ok. So guys, thanks again for all your hard work - best regards - Roy Campbell p.s. If anyone has a Mac disk they cant read with a Mac OS - try hooking it to a PC via USB and run HFSExlorer to recover data. You may have to clone it to a good drive first.
