  1. Thanks Dino! I looked around and deleted AppleHDA.kext and Legacy888bHDA.kext entirely (rather than use the older version). I expected that this would kill my sound, but surprisingly it booted up and everything worked--audio was fine, including the mic on my HP USB webcam! I didn't add ANYTHING ELSE, I only deleted those two files. Sleep is not working, so I will have to find the correct SleepEnabler, but that's a minor issue. Thank you again for your help.
  2. Bump. Still looking for advice/suggestions on the above issue.
  3. I upgraded to 10.6.5 using software update which I expected would be safe as I had upgraded to 10.6.4 in this way in the past. Unfortunately I was wrong. I'm getting a KP right after the Apple screen. I booted verbose and noted that the KP happened when after VoodooHDADevice[0x23a9f000]::free panic... Replaced AppleHDA.kext with the version from [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url]. Panic again--same place as you can see: I can boot with -x I am not very good at debugging, can some of you experts give me an idea about how I might fix this without starting from scratch? Thank you for any ideas!
  4. Switching Graphics Cards GT7600 -> G 210

    Sigh.... black screen. But thanks for the tip. Is there a list of these somewhere? Or are you just finding them randomly around the site?
  5. Switching Graphics Cards GT7600 -> G 210

    I still haven't been able to get this fixed... any ideas?
  6. Hello and thanks for the reply. I got my video card working with banini_jeque's string (I have always been running 10.6.4.) thanks to some help from oldnapalm, however the string killed my sound. Basically instead of the normal sound outputs, I got "Digital-out (HDMI)". Not only that, there were 4 identical versions of that in the sound control panel. (See the screen shot here: http://bit.ly/aGQ8rS.) Not really sure what to do at this point, because I definitely need the sound to work and it seems that enabling this card also enables the HDMI on the card as a sound port (even though the card doesn't actually support sound throughput from what I have read).
  7. Switching Graphics Cards GT7600 -> G 210

    UH OH. That EFI killed my sound. I just noticed... instead of the normal sound outputs, I have "Digital-out (HDMI)". Not only that, there are 4 identical versions of that in the sound control panel. (See the screen shot.) That might be OK, but in the specs for this card, the HDMI port does not pass sound, so that can't possibly be working (I assume) since the hardware doesn't support it. Sound INPUT is still OK, referencing the "pink front" connecter as normal. Any ideas? Edit: I tried using the NVEnabler_64.kext -> Black Screen I removed the EFI string and reverted back to my old video card -> Sound works again So it's definitely the EFI string that is bonking out the sound. That EFI seems to be telling the computer that the HDMI on the card is sound capable, which it isn't.
  8. Switching Graphics Cards GT7600 -> G 210

    Your EFI string worked, thanks a lot! I get the ripple effect when I add a dashboard accessory, too, which didn't happen in safe mode. The fact that you can do this technical stuff bilingually is amazing! Should I try the NVEnabler, too? Is one solution better than another for stability or speed? Also, I tried deleting the arch=i386 string and booting up... the first THREE times I got system panics, (I don't know why I kept trying) but the fourth time it booted and has booted ever since. I assume that means this system is 64 bit capable? Again thank you so much!
  9. Switching Graphics Cards GT7600 -> G 210

    Ok I tried what I think you meant, with the same black screen result. I posted my current /Extra/com.apple.Boot.plist file below. Is that correct? I had NVEnabler 64.kext because someone had reported success with it. OK, it's out now. heh heh...yeah... Here is my /Extra/com.apple.Boot.plist file: <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd"> <plist version="1.0"> <dict> <key>Kernel</key> <string>mach_kernel</string> <key>Kernel Flags</key> <string>arch=i386</string> <key>GraphicsEnabler</key> <string>No</string> <key>Timeout</key> <string>1</string> <key>Legacy Logo</key> <string>Yes</string> <key>EthernetBuiltIn</key> <string>Yes</string> <key>PciRoot(0x1)/Pci(0x1,0x0)/Pci(0x0,0x0)</key> <dict> <key>@0,compatible</key> <string>NVDA,NVMac</string> <key>@0,device_type</key> <string>display</string> <key>@0,fboffset</key> <integer>131072</integer> <key>@0,name</key> <string>NVDA,Display-A</string> <key>@1,compatible</key> <string>NVDA,NVMac</string> <key>@1,device_type</key> <string>display</string> <key>@1,name</key> <string>NVDA,Display-B</string> <key>@2,compatible</key> <string>NVDA,sensor-parent</string> <key>@2,device_type</key> <string>NVDA,gpu-diode</string> <key>@2,hwctrl-params-version</key> <data> AAAAAg== </data> <key>@2,hwsensor-params-version</key> <data> AAAAAg== </data> <key>@2,name</key> <string>sensor-parent</string> <key>@2,reg</key> <data> AAAAAg== </data> <key>NVCAP</key> <data>BAAAAAAAAwAQAAAAAAAABwAAAAA=</data> <key>NVPM</key> <data>AQAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA==</data> <key>VRAM,totalsize</key> <string>0x20000000</string> <key>device_type</key> <string>NVDA,Parent</string> <key>model</key> <string>NVIDIA Geforce 210</string> <key>name</key> <string>display</string> <key>rom-revision</key> <string>NVIDIA Geforce 210 OpenGL Engine [EFI]</string> </dict> <key>device-properties</key> <string>STRING IS HERE BUT DELETED TO CONSERVE SPACE </string> </dict> </plist>
  10. Switching Graphics Cards GT7600 -> G 210

    Thanks for the reply! That sounds promising as he has the exact same card as me (an EVGA version). There are two files there (in addition to a screen shot): geforce210.plist GeForce210EFIString.txt I will try them, but where do they go? I don't know what NVCAP is... is that part of what the above files fix? Yes. However I tried turning it on and off with this card. Neither worked. Oh... I barely know what I am doing in English. No chance in the world I could follow instructions in Spanish. In addition to the above, I should mention that I haven't even gotten this card to boot in safe mode yet.... (I hit spacebar at the Chameleon startup screen then down arrow to "Safe Mode". Black screen after I type "exit" to boot the OS. Every time I make a change I have to put in the old card, boot in 32 bit mode, make changes, shut down, put in the new card, reboot.
  11. Unfortunately not. I have that setting and I cannot boot in safe mode. You must have done something else that you didn't realize in addition to that and the combination of the two things worked. Does anyone know how to get the device IDs for a video card when you cannot even boot that card? I have an evga GeForce 210 512 MB I tried these settings as listed above, but when I booted verbose it hung on "unknown nvidia card" NVDANV50Hal.kext/Info.plist I added: 0x0a6510de&0xfff0ffff NVDAResman.kext/Info.plist I added: 0x0a6510de&0xfff8ffff Since they didn't work, I am wondering whether my card has different IDs.
  12. Dual Boot Problem

    OK, installed the new version of Chameleon and it just worked. Nothing else was needed. Thanks! I thought this new version had support for the new nvidia 210/220 cards by default, but apparently not. Anyone happen to know how to get that working? Well, I suppose that is not really on topic for this thread, but just incase you happen to know if it happens to be a quick fix.
  13. I have a working OSX with an old GT7600 card, but I recently got a G210 and would like to switch it over. I had installed the latest RC5 version of Chameleon in order to get dual booting with Win 7, and I thought that also automatically included drivers for the new nvidia cards, but apparently not. I tried just switching the card out, hoping the driver would be there, but of course that didn't work. It gets all the way through the Apple screen, but as soon as it gets to the point that it would normally open the Finder, I get a black screen instead. Can anyone tell me what to do to get the 210 working? Thank you!
  14. Dual Boot Problem

    I didn't see him say to download it, but ok, where do I download it FROM? Oh, you mean I need a completely new version of Chameleon. I thought I was supposed to download the fdisk440 command from somewhere. I guess this is what I need then? http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php...t&p=1404132
  15. Dual Boot Problem

    I guess I don't have it... i get ./fdisk440: command not found Is terminal the only way to switch it? I'm hoping there is another option out there.
