  1. I'm doing a build on a Sager custom "gaming" notebook - for portable/travelling audio/logic pro work station (I'm a film/tv composer). This is a beast - 6 core i7 3.5 ghz with 32gb ram installed 3 ssds for samples, etc. I was finally able to get an upgrade to 10.8.4 working using v2 Pandora's box post install - I could use some HELP post-install as I'm relatively green at hacking, and trying to sort out video issues. The card is an Nvda GT`X 770m with 3gb ram. When I booted into the native 10.8.4 drivers after upgrading from 10.8.3, I can ONLY get video from the attached DVI output on the main board to an external monitor. I had almost given up, but thanks to the Pandora's box option to "remove the nvda kexts", I was back to at least seeing the internal display again, but of course the card is not fully supported, only shows 7mb ram and acceleration, etc. broken. BUT the interal display is properly "seen" and funcioning (it was completely BLACK with the native 10.8.4 Nvdia kexts installed). The only way I was able to get a OSX86 install to work on this motherboard, which is a "custom" sager intel board (with very little bios control over the hardware) was to use iAtkos ML 10.8.3 UEFI Clover boot install. So now, I'm hoping I can get the full nvida support via kext editing... or proper injection? - (as best I can understand) Clover kind of hijacks the Chameleon boot loader part of started up and is not editable..?? Any expert ideas appreciated! Also implied in this question are how to get the proper addressing to the Video Outputs of the machine as well for you EXPERT GENIUSes here thanks!! I can try manually adding back nvdia kexts one by one. Of course the IDEAL situation would be to have the card work and addressing BOTH the internal display on the Sager Notebook, and the external DVI and HDMI outputs wired in.. Ive already fixed networking (via a new card) and USB/PS2 stuff, batter level, and (I think) sleep/wake. Sager Notebook OSX 10.8.4 Atheros wlan, Nvda GTX 770M 3gb 32GG ram installed i7-3970X

    News! Pandora's Box Beta2 is OUT

    Great tool, thanks for this.

  3. Great tool! Thanks so much for your time in creating and posting. I was able to get a kalway fresh instal of 10.5.2. up to 10.5.3 with the Kalway update tool, and then used your mods to get to 10.5.5 ! bravo- also I noticed if something was incorrect in the 'post instal' dialog after reboot I could run again (from inside the 10.5.5) and fix a couple of issues (mostly kernel change getting my network to work) specs asus IP35-V, 6gb RAM, 7200gs, core2duo 2.8
  4. Hi - I have this same motherboard (EG31M) on an Acer Veriton M460 core 2 duo- I'm trying to update the bios to the one mentioned above - can someone suggest a way to do this from within xp? I've tried putting dos and the file on flash drive but the BIOS gives and error message that 'flash not permitted....?" thanks!
