  1. Geforce GTX 560 Ti 448 on Lion

    Thanks Joot. I checked for Natil.kext and I don't have it. I also installed the 5xx enabler but that didn't do anything. I can't upgrade my system profile from macpro 3,1 to 4,1 or 5,1 as it causes my kernel to panic. I notice you said 1024mb... Am I right in assuming you've got the ID=1200 card not the id=1087 card? As we say in England, the 1087 is a 'wrongen'! lol
  2. Geforce GTX 560 Ti 448 on Lion

    When you say detected correctly, is it detected at a "GTX 560ti" or as an "Unknown 1280mb, but seems to be working properly"? I cannot get an ID 1087 card to be recognised properly, and I'm blaming this for my low cinebench scores... I can get 38 in Win, but only 28 in 10.7.3. Maybe I'll try deleting Natil too?
  3. Fermi 5XX works with Lion DP4/GM!

    Avoid the Gainward 560Ti 448 core "Special Edition" 1280mb. I've followed the OP to the letter, still comes up first as Unknown 1280, then in Cinebench is coming up as "Unknown futuristic Nvidia Processor" <-- Which I wouldn't mind if it was futuristic and was blowing the others out of the water but it's benchmarking slower than a GTX280. To put it into perspective, in 10.7.3 (64Bit) Cinebench Open-GL gets 27.46. In WinXP SP3 (32 bit!) I'm getting 38.82! I would expect OSX to be faster, not slower than Windows Processor is a Core2Quad 2.8ghz on a Gigabyte DS3-EP4. To add insult to injury, it killed my wifi card. Got it working again by changing the slot in Windows (which also protested no hardware present), but still cannot get any connectivity in OSX. Bad experience for me, I have to say to avoid these 448 1280mb cards with ID 1087 (not 1200 as everyone says they are, they are the GTX 560 non Ti). Hope this helps someone to choose the right card, spend the extra and get a real 570! I'm going to see if I can return mine for a 570, because it just doesn't work.
  4. [GUIDE] Dell Latitude E6410

    I was getting a very similar message, the issue was that the DVD of OSX I was using wasn't being recognised by the Bootdisk here, or by [url=&quot;http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/&quot;]#####[/url]. I'm still experimenting, but I have been able to get into the installation procedure by using a Kalyway 10.5.2 disk. I am going to try swapping to 10.6.0 at this point, failing that, install 10.5.2 and upgrade from there.
  5. Has anyone got any further with getting the HD recognised?
  6. I just wanted to thank LTL for this post. Whilst I haven't attempted to install from a retail CD (instead opting for Kalyway 10.5.2), the hardware specification and other posts from this thread gave me most (if not all) of the info I needed to attempt a HackPro. I must say WOW. I've never liked macs, and I don't think i was unjustified in not liking them, but since the move to Intel and the ability to create a Hack... Woah. OSX is really good, I'm well and truly converted! That said, I don't think I would be inclined to buy a Mac Pro. The hardware costs are very prohibitive, and in honesty, I really don't think my whole "OSX/Mac Experience" is any the less for not running OSX on Apple hardware. Anyway cheers! When I pluck up the courage, I'll try this retail/vanilla thing
