  1. ATI Radeon 6xxx, working QE/CI

    Got the same as the guy above. 6850, installed kexts and got the installed improperly message. I used Kext Helper to install btw. Proceeded to install Chameleon RC5, and a modded boot file I found in another thread. It also advised me to dump my ROM, and place it in the Extra folder. Edited the .plist to show UseAtiRom=Yes, and GraphicsEnabler=Yes. Booted up, and got black screen, and full fans. Would it have worked with GraphicsEnabler=No Cheers.
  2. 8500GT Problems.

    Right, I'm in a bit of a pickle. I previously had my Nvidia 8500GT 512mb working via EFI Strings, on my old Biostar AMD Mobo on Snow Leopard. Now, that i've switched to an Intel Asus P5KPL-AM EPU, the same EFI strings seem to make no difference to anything, and it will only show up with 1280x1024 rez in VESA mode (i think) It shows in the information bit, but only as 32mb, and not NVIDIA Geforce 8500GT and all the EFI strings malarkey, like it did on my previous mobo. I've done a retail install, using the Snow DVD. What am i doing wrong?
  3. Well, heres the problem. I can install Snow Leopard from a fully working Ideneb system, and have it running fine. However, when i go to install it from a retail dvd i get a seemingly random kernel panic during installation. I have a fully working and patched DSDT.aml, if thats got anything to do with it. To create my bootcd, i used BootCDMaker, with the following kexts: AppleNforceATA. (not sure whether its compiled for 64bit or 32bit) fakesmc voodoohda, etc. Qoopz kernel/modbin test7. EFI String for Graphics. and all the other necessary ones (can't remember off the top of my head) but they worked fine when i installed from leopard. Oh, and the kernel panic doesn't relate to anything like a particular kext, so its baffled me a a bit. Any ideas? Specs Biostar MCP6P M2+ AMD Athlon 64 6000+ 4GB RAM Nvidia 8500gt. Samsung HD50ILJ 500GB. Thanks in advance!
