  1. Lenvovo MTQ45NK Intel Q45 (ICH10D) Eaglelake with Nvidia, working nicely
  2. [Solved]Geforce 8600GT - ML GM

    Same as here? [solved] QE / CI on Mountain Lion GM with the NVIDIA GeForce 8400 GS 512MB files for download
  3. Attached are the 2 kexts with edited plist files to that they override (get loaded instead of) Apple's kexts. When a system update installs new versions, my version should "win". Let me know if it works for you. Btw, I did not need the NVEnabler (I use GraphicsEnabler=Yes). NV Override for Mountain Lion.zip
  4. Awesome. Fixes my "stall on boot" issue with a Club 3D 8400GS 256 MB. Can you describe what exactly you did to those kexts? By the way, it is possible to increase the version numbers of your kexts so that they are loaded no matter what future updates might install in the system. In order to do that, rename the kexts (e.g., put the word "override" in front of the name), and change the version number by adding "99"in front of it (e.g., 2.0 --> 992.0" in the Info.plist files (I used the script below to do that prior to installation of the kexts). This way, the original kexts can stay where they are but your kexts will always override them. PLISTS=$(find /Users/.../folder_where_your_nvidia_kexts_are/ -name *plist) for PLIST in $PLISTS ; do NAME=$(echo $PLIST | sed -e 's|.plist||g') echo $NAME V=$(defaults read $NAME CFBundleVersion) SV=$(defaults read $NAME CFBundleShortVersionString) defaults write $NAME CFBundleVersion 99$V defaults write $NAME CFBundleShortVersionString 99$SV plutil -convert xml1 $PLIST done
  5. It is no problem at all to make an ISO yourself. Just create a bootable USB installation drive, make sure it really boots, and then convert it into a DVD ISO using one of the usual scripts that have been created for this purpose (works exactly the same as before).
  6. What do you get? A desktop without acceleration or no desktop at all (just hangs)? What is the last 5 lines that you see when booting with -x?
  7. Intel HD Graphics / GMA 5700

    I am in the same boat - we need to find out what in that DSDT makes acceleration work, that way we can add that part only to our DSDTs.
  8. Intel HD Graphics / GMA 5700

    Do you have any framebuffer kext loaded now? (E.g., the GMA950 or X3100 one?)
  9. Intel HD Graphics / GMA 5700

    The DSDT crashes my i7... so we should find out what in this DSDT enables the translucent menubar. When you have the translucent menubar, is any framebuffer kext loaded? (kextstat)
  10. No driver for my hp520 GMA950

    The needed device-properties string in com.apple.Boot.plist is missing!
  11. Bootlogo Chameleon-2.0-r431.pgk ändern

    In com.apple.Boot.plist: <key>Legacy Logo</key> <string>yes</string>
  12. Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard

    I think this is the root of the problem. How did you create your mkext? (I guess you need to create it using a SL system...)
  13. Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard

    If you get a KP after the "mig_table_max_displ = XX" line, then you should really make sure you have a vaild mkext
  14. Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard

    panic(cpu 0 caller 0x2a6a95) - it looks like /System/Library/Caches/com.apple.kext.caches/Startup/Extensions.mkext might be outdated or missing. Apparently loading kexts without Extensions.mkext isn't working yet.
  15. ACPI (DSDT) Patcher for BIOS and AML

    Did you add any specific patch for the NVidia shutdown issue? Because using a DSDT patched with this tool, the computer now powers down properly, which it never did before... awesome! Please add more descriptions inside the tool itself, e.g., what does "PEGP" mean, when should I use GIGE, how do I find out about ALC888-0 vs. -2, etc. Just add some more text or tooltips please.
