  1. Hello, please kindly explain me te solution with the extender cable. I already have the bcm94360 card and the adapter. I luckily have the problem that only BT part is working as I got only two PCIe x16 slots... You mean that using PCIe x1 extender cable in x16 slot will do the trick? Or do I have any other solution without ordering other adapter? Thanks and Regards m.
  2. Gigabyte Nvidia GT 220 / adding 1920x1080 VESA mode to bios

    Hi guys, so I managed this "my way" as Resolution.dylib tip from you did not work and patching the bios was also not successfull from my side... After searching around the forum... 1. I used Nibitor to modify my GT220 bios in Boot Settings, I have checked "Non-Native Panel Control" and flashed it via nvflash 2. Then I modified this theme a bit http://dl.dropbox.com/u/34515463/Leopard_Server.zip to have black background. This theme looks like Mac login screen with black backgound, I also have to use non-legacy apple boot picture from this theme 3. I also modified chameleon apple boot to have black background instead of grey with: sudo - s perl -pi.bak -e 's;\xff\xff\xff\xbf\xbf\xbf;\xff\xff\xff\x00\x00\x00;g' boot Finaly I have beautiful boot till the system starts with 1920x1080 resolution Small disadvantages: 1. bios post and bios settings is small 640x480 and centered in the screen (but trully how ofthen do I go to bios?) 2. Theme is still not in 1920x1080 it is my VESA max 1280x1024 (but is 1:1 pixel and centered in the screen without any bars) 3. I cannot see circle progress icon on apple boot Maybe this could be usefull somehow for someone... Bye
