    I generated my EFI string using the handraulic method found here: http://forum.netkas.org/index.php?topic=222.0 It is: <string>4a02000001000000010000003e0200000d00000002010c00d041030a000000000101060000010 01060000000101060000000101060000007fff04000e0000004e00560050004d0000002000000001 00000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000220000005600520041004d002c0 74006f00740061006c00730069007a006500000008000000000000201c0000006400650076006900 30065005f0074007900700065000000100000004e5644412c4765466f7263650e0000006e0061006 00650000000f0000004e5644412c506172656e7422000000400030002c0064006500760069006300 5005f00740079007000650000000b000000646973706c617922000000400031002c0064006500760 6900630065005f00740079007000650000000b000000646973706c6179100000006d006f00640065 06c0000000d000000383830304d2047545820000000400031002c0063006f006d007000610074006 0062006c00650000000e0000004e5644412c4e564d616314000000400030002c006e0061006d0065 00000120000004e5644412c446973706c61792d4114000000400031002c006e0061006d006500000 120000004e5644412c446973706c61792d4220000000400030002c0063006f006d00700061007400 90062006c00650000000e0000004e5644412c4e564d6163100000004e00560043004100500000001 00000004000000000003000c00000000000007000000001e00000072006f006d002d007200650076 06900730069006f006e0000000800000076312e30</string> in my com.apple.Boot.plist I also have the internal network card working (albeit with mac address of 00:00:00:00:00 - not a problem for me, just setup a rule in DHCP server to assign an address to all zeros MAC) and use a USB Belkin 7050 (v1) for my wireless. Sound works, but mic doesn't. All in all, I'd be pretty happy if I could work out how to get DVI happening, so I'm looking into NVCAP values.

    I just have a EFI string which works, but I don't get QE/CI and connecting an external display doesn't work. How well does yours do?
  3. My biggest gripe at the moment is that my XPS M1730 keyboard is mapped slightly differently to how I want. Alt seems to be mapped to my apple key (i.e. Alt+C will copy), ctrl and windows key seem to do nothing. Anyone know how I can remap these?
  4. For those with an M1730, the AppleHDA.kext attached to this post has working speaker output (i.e. sound!). No mic or anything, but it's a good place to start. AppleHDA.kext.zip

    I dunno what was happening before. I can get Nvidia drivers working with opengl but not quartz extreme.

    Define "success". I can install MacOS 10.5.4 using the iAtkos installer, but I have yet to get the Dual 8800M GTX to work. In fact after I install the nvidia drivers it doesn't shutdown properly and then I have to power it off and that leads to all sorts of trouble next boot. Try it out, let us know of progress.
