  1. Hi KyleGP. Can you upload your stock DSDT - one without any edits or modifications....??? I'll look into it, and try to see why the Error. Only then, can I provide you a fixed DSDT... Regards, Freaky Chokra
  2. As I had said, here is my config.plist. Also included is my DSDT. BREAKING NEWS UPDATE!: Moreover, I got another Asus Direct CUII Nvidia 560Ti 1GB and am now using both in SLI mode and IT WORKS FLAWLESSLY!!! BOTH the cards are enabled and work without any problems. Regards, Freaky Chokra config_N_dsdt.zip

    No graphics / USB / Audio after wake

    I have finally got El Capitan running. It is blazingly fast in everything... Even, the internet throughput speeds have imporved 10-fold!!! It seems, as I found out after tons of research and about making 20 different USB INstallers of El Capitan: A] Please Use a 16GB USB Pen Drive -> Plug it into a regular USB 2.0 port of your Laptop / Desktop only! B] Stay away from installing a plain copy of Yosemite (10.10) - Solely for the purpose of Upgrade-Installing El Capitan (10.11). This is what I had done, As my 8GB USB Pendrive was resulting in continuous failures. In retrospect: I had copied the El Capitan Installer app to another volume, andItreally boots directly from another volume without any problems. However, Over-writing a Yosemite install is what lead to the blank screen repeatedly. This is what bugs me, and I find it strange. Lastly, for those who might wonder & question this post or findings -> I tried with & without the DSDT -> which some might say is badly compiled. Though, that DSDT has worked fine for me since about 4 months. I am attaching a copy of the config.plist, which helped me to boot the installer without any errors with everything enabled except USB 3.0 controllers. -Regards, Freaky Chokra

    GeForce GTX 560Ti and Clover 2k

    Can you please post your edited / refined config.plist once again? Please? DropBox Link is unavailable anymore...
  6. Old timer here. Seems El Capitan has disabled quite a few graphics cards. After 48 hours of perilous straining to get the beast advance from Boot Screen to Installer, to completing install, I am currently stuck with a Black / Blank Screen after booting to desktop or if it is the Setup Wizard. I had a very refined DSDT and a perfected Clover config. Now none of it seems to work. I replaced the refined DSDT to an older, very basic DSDT extracted from booting into Windows and patching it using MaciASL. It has added Nvidia GFX (peg0), HDMI out & audio edits - injection. However, I do not use ALC onboard audio since I have a Creative X-Fi USB sound card with 5.1 speakers. Now, can someone please shed light on why El Capitan hates nVidia 560Ti 1GB Direct CUII model...??? Following is all I have done or tried before reaching out for help: 1) Updated Clover. <- everything related to this is done and dealt with 2) Switched SMBIOS.plist from iMac13.2 to Macpro6,1 <- this actually got my Machine to boot without the dreaded ACPIPlatform Error. found from a different user's query. Currently using iMac13,2 SMBIOS, as it supports 560Ti unlike MacPro SMBIOS, which have the AGDP bug resulting in black/blank screen post boot. 3) Tried different DSDTs <- self made / modified. but all with GFX DSDT injection since that is what I am following since day 1 of Hacckintosh. 4) Lastly, tried NVIDIA WEB Drivers latest version. NOTE: It is hell getting to install these even with the macmodel bypass. It didn't work for me. I had to manually extract using my backup Hackintosh box using Pacfist. and then, boot Installer -> use Terminal to manually copy them to SLE. rebuild cache using touch SLEx. Used nvda_drv=1. Thus, I can freely switch between native drivers & Nvidia Web drivers. Currently Booting using Clover & "nv_disable=1". Still Black Screen. Can someone "Please help", and post if got success on 560Ti....? :help: Regards, Freaky Chokra

    Show Your OS X Desktop!

    Thanks very much, MMissy. Don't know if sensors on my Motherboard - Gigabyte GA-P55-US3L are/would be supported or not... Have been using Lion since almost a year... Been long time since I touched installing or developing any code-based | derived work. Would try it out soon, and Let you know. Others would always benefit from our work... Many thanks to Kolzek for creating an Open Source and dependable alternative to iStat and Bresinks HWMonitor... Regards, Freaky Chokra

    Show Your OS X Desktop!

    Hi Mindlemissy, Is this application "Hardware Monitor", or something else? Can you please share how you got many "sensors reading" enabled and visible in Lion? regards, Freaky Chokra

    @Kokainum: Which was your first SMBIOS that did NOT work? And, which new SMBIOS (model) you used, made it work perfectly? Dude, do reply... Regards, Freaky Chokra

    Lion installation via USB stick using Chameleon

    @in-fi-ni-ty. You most likely have installed Leopard on an MBR partitioned drive. It was possible with 10.5. Not with 10.6 or 10.7. Well, not easily. I suggest, you can choose from 2 (Easy) options: Get a new spare hard disk drive. Modify your Lion installation USb thumb drive, with a MBR enabled OSIntall.pkg 1 Difficult way is: Backup all your working Windows Data. Destroy the entire partition map Use the Lion (10.7) instal usb thumb drive to re-partition your existing hard drive into a GUID partition table type. Install OSX. Install Windows. Restore working Windows data. That's it! Regards, Freaky Chokra

    OSX has a superior UI to Windows

    Regret saying these words on a thread, but Alas!: Does Windows ("Any" version) give a un-pixelated icon scaling, "IN REAL-TIME"...!!!!!????? Does it support Icon Transparency? Is its "taskbar" as 3D as OSX Dock? <-> WITH reflections? Can you change the "taskbar's" appearance or texture, just like you can with OSX Dock? Does Windows "taskbar" support Application hiding like OSX GUI? --> This minimizes all open windows of that application to collage into a Single App icon. Saving screen, and Dock bar's actual real-estate. The Biggest Question: What is START button? What more does one want to start after booting to desktop? The worst thing is: if anyone has checked out Windows 8 preview videos on popular video tubes....!!! It's like Windows 7 mobile interface on Windows 7 desktop....!!!! The last Laugh: Even on the latest touch-driven GUI of Windows 8, there is a large, 32-point text labeled - you guessed the answer to the gazillion dollar question which is yet unanswered by billions (of kids/students to quantum physicists!) using computers worldwide - "START... On a touch screen!!!! - What the...!!!??? I won't say anything about notifications. It's beyond dignity to compare OSX's alert system with [nonexistent] Windows'. Agree with "geithals" Regards, Freaky Chokra
  13. Hi snowmusicman. Real grateful for your reply. U can see my Rig specs in my Signature. Next, in my system -> Lion is on a 1 TB HDD -> GUID partitioned, 70Gb Lion OS dedicated. Chameleon latest version on EFI partition as it didn't load easily, directly on the boot sectors. [Very Strange because, this worked perfectly on my friend's rig with exactly same 1 TB HDD, and chameleon loaded on the boot record. I didn't have to do the EFi partition bootable trick ] Please, help me fix this for a regular use, as I have tested and found, using NVenabler x64.kext and DSDT patching does not get the card to perform at its best. Next, My system is vanilla, except for: FakeSMC and other monitoring kexts, NUllCPUPowerManagement.kext, IOAHCIBlockStorageInjector.kext, JMicron36xSATA.kext Next: I tried the macpro8800gt.rom trick with: In all the above situations, It boots displaying verbose text and everything. But, when the login screen appears, only blank screen. Just note that currently my Samsung 20-inch LCD monitor is a DVI and VGA input only monitor. I use a cable with pure DVI-D plug to connect the monitor to the GFX card's DVI out. To test the HDMI output, I used a HDMI to DVI converter dongle and connected the (my same) DVI-D output plug into the monitor. As far as I have understood the OS, DSDT, kexts, and Chameleon, I should at least get a no - QE+CI display. At Least. Now, A new thing I tried and here it is: And, This got my regular XFX 9800GT's DVI output to monitor's DVI in working with QE+CI and actually faster and better visual display. But, still, no HDMI output through the HDMI to DVI dongle. Can you share whether: a] This trick does not work with HDMI to DVI dongle connected to a DVI input monitor? b] This trick only works with native HDMI output connected to a HDMI input monitor? Please? I have found something (I analyzed on my own), and it did work. At least, now I get to Lion desktop with hardware acceleration. and desktop resolution changing, etc. Regards, Freaky Chokra
  14. Dear snowmusicman. Could you please share your DSDT, or any other kexts or mods you have done so to get your 9800GT running?Share your model no, manufacturer, device id, vendor id, RAM, etc, please. It will help us in fixing this for the best. Please? I was NEVER able to get to "Desktop", if i used any Video BIOS file, along with chameleon injection of all such. I therefore had compiled my DSDT with GFX card injection in it. This was easier, and actually was faster than having NVEnabler x64.kext running the GFX card. However, I ask so, coz I made some progress on this issue. I added the GFX BIOS .Rom file to the /Extra folder, changed the org.chameleon.boot.plist, and also added the NVenabler x64.kext. All this in Lion 10.7.1. Now, I can boot with the BIOS file, and get to desktop GUI too, with QE/CI enabled, when my 20-inch LCD is connected through the DVI port. But, it still does NOT support HDMI output. I think we are quite near breaking this, only if we contributed together. Regards, Freaky Chokra
  15. @iLeopod & @Gringo Vermelho & @ snowmusicman Yesterday, I "re-"installed Lion 10.7 via mald0n's guide, and the script by (I'll credit the creator here shortly). On the almost Vanilla install, I tried with the attached MacPro 8800GT BIOS ROM file. <key>GraphicsEnabler</key> <string>Yes</string> <key>UseNvidiaROM</key> <string>yes</string> <key>VBIOS</key> <string>yes</string> Not using NVEnabler x64.kext. Have a perfected DSDT by mald0n for Lion, which was manually edited (by me) to include my GFX card DSDT code. The "ISSUE": I get verbose text output while booting. As soon as the GUI kicks in, It displays a blank screen. NOTE: The OS is running in the background, as it can is quite understood looking at the HDD LED light. I use the restart/sleep/shutdown Shortcut (Control+Eject) via keyboard, and shutdown the machine. Currently, posting from my stable SL 10.6.8. Can anyone help about getting this thing (HDMI) working? Pleeeaase? Ease this one out, please... Regards, Freaky Chokra
