  1. Success with 4890 solution in 10.6.2!

    Huge success, Sapphire 4890 works dual display. With QE/CI and no performance degradation. I made many changes, so I'll try to track down everything and be scientific. Situation before 4890: OS X 10.6.2 Upgraded from 10.6.0 Vanilla with P35-DS4 pack and Chameleon. Nvidia 9800GT working dual display using EFI string in /Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/com.apple.Boot.plist Before replacing card: Installed netkas qe_ci_exotic_10.6.2 removed EFI string from com.apple.Boot.plist I'm posting my kext list and some more info images. Update Found a procedure to install 10.6.2 with Radeon HD4890 working in dual monitor: Files needed for Install here: http://www.mediafire.com/?ngdvwzzyzdj 1. While in Snow Leopard open Disk Utility and create a new partition in GUID mode on a secondary disk. 2. Mount a Mac Snow Leopard 10.6 Retail install DVD and run OSInstall.mpkg from [CDROOT]/System/Installation/Packages 3. Install a new install without printer drivers in customize on the new partition. 4. Download and install OSX Updates 10.6.1 and 10.6.2 5. Install Chameleon 2 RC3 6. In my case I install the GA-P35-DS4 Snow Pack.pkg 7. Install Netkas QE_CI_Exotic patch 10.6.2.pkg 8. Replace SleepEnabler.kext in /Extra/Extentions with new one in SleepEnabler.kext_10.6.2.zip 9. Replace /boot with new one in boot_v10.5.zip 10. Reboot, thats it. My setup: Gigabyte P35-DS4 Q9550 at 3.4GHz (8.5*400) Normal Voltage 8GB 800MHz (2*400) Normal Voltage PCI Fixed speed 100MHz Sapphire HD4890 1GB
  2. Perfect install I've been installing on PC since 10.2, this was the first time I heard the music in the welcome movie. Big big appreciation, well done, after so many installs, this one deserves my applause. The whole process took 14 minutes. For those of you that didn't understand, in step 11, the keys and hex are added to /Extra/com.apple.Boot.plist (That's why you should keep the file open in the editor).
  3. This worked for my P35-DS4 http://www.insanelymac.com/lofiversion/index.php/t66344.html Download from RS and apply instruction from TheCoolNerds
