    GeForce 285 GTX black screen (solved)

    Hi, I had the same problem, and I eventually tried using 'NVEnabler.kext' and it seemed to fix the problem. Hope this helps.
  2. Hello there, I'll start off by telling you guys my system configuration, and what I hope for. Hee's my system specs: Intel core i7 920 processor Asus P6T-SE motherboard nVidia Geforce GTX graphics (1) nVidia Geforce 900GTX graphics (2) Thermaltake 775W modular PSU Hitachi 750GB Sata 2 HDD Kingston 12GB (3x4gb) HyperX memory First, I will say the reason of me having two diffrent graphics cards in the same system is because in Windows, I was able to use the total of 4 DVI ports so i could use 4 monitors with my system. I'm not 100% sure, but I think the 7900GTX was just acting as a 'hub' for extra ports, because I was certainly getting the GTX285's performance in stead of the 7900GTX's performance, which is ideal. Ultimatley, I'd want this same config on Mountain Lion however, we shall take it step-by-step. I followed the 12th post on this topic, as my base: http://www.insanelym...howtopic=277015 First booting the USB disk, the installer did not run, and me having two cards in my PC, I pretty much expected that. I took the 7900 out, and ran the installer, only having the same problem. I eventually only used the 7900 as the card in my PC to install ML, and I managed to get it installed. I used the DSDT.aml found for some of the Lion install guides, and some ACHI fixer for 10.7.4 as well as some random P6T-SE kext i could find. When it came to booting the installed OS off the internal HDD, using the USB drive as the bootloader, I got the result in the image attached. Could someone please help me out? Im sure theres many others who would also like some information on the P6T range of boards. Thank you for your time.

  3. Hello, i followed this guide today and all went well, however i have a rather small bug, but very annoying. My mouse appears to be quite choppy when moving the cursor around the screen. I have a dual monitor setup, however it is still choppy with a single monitor. The dock's animations are completely liquid, so is all of the dashboard's animations. Here's the specs: i7 920 P6T-SE GTX285 160GB Sata2 HDD T/Take 775W PSU Like i said, i know it's not a massive issue, but as the mouse is the most used part of the user interface, it really gets to me over time. Thanks Oh, and my mouse is a Razer Lachesis, it's 4000dpi, maybe that'd might have something to do with it?

    OS X Leopard Will Not Boot Off Of Hard-drive...

    come on, anyone please?
  5. hey all, i am new to this forum and i would like start of by saying Hi. I have installed EFI Leopard 10.5.2 and i have gotten to the bit where i am asked to restart the p.c. I cannot boot off of my hard-drive as all i see is a flashing underscore _ and i left it running for 6 hours just to make sure it was not just running slow lol. However, i can boot into it by booting off of the c.d, and when it prompts me to a timer to press any key or f8 to boot off of the c.d., I just leave it so it doesn't boot off of the c.d and it loads Leopard perfectly. I think i have a problem with my boot-loader, i am not too good at os x as i am from windows and i also am not too good at linux. I have tried installing this sevral times, as i know it is fully functional because right at the start, i had it all working in the first attempt but then all of a sudden, it stopped :S i have tried many things involving FDisk, when I'm meant too press f8 and go terminal and write a new mbr and make the partition active etc, but no go... I am using MBR Partitions. I need as much help as i can get as i want to get this all working as i will really need os x functioning and i will not keep using the cd's boot-loader to keep booting into it. My system Specs are as Follows: AMD Athlon 64 FX-55 Processor (SSE SSE2) Asus A8N32-SLI Deluxe Motherboard Sapphire ATI Radeon X1900XTX Toxic GFX Card Crucial 2GB DDR 400MHZ Dual Channel Memory Hyper Type-R 580W Modular PSU Primary Master - Maxtor 200GB IDE 133 HDD Secondary Master - LG DVD R/W Fifth Master - Maxtor 160GB SATA-II HDD Sixth Master - Western Digital WD4000AAKS SATA-II HDD I disco'd all the harddrives and stuff apart from the one i am installing leopard on; the 160, and ofc i keped the dvdrw in to install it... Please tell me if any more info is required... i hope i can get replies A.S.A.P! thanks for your time and help, i really appreciate it
