  1. HI there I hope one of you can help me because after 3 days of working on this I am now out of options, tried forum search but nothing I have an Intel DG45ID with 4GB of RAM and Core2Duo 2.66MHz CPU I have been trying to get Mountain Lion or indeed Lion on this with limited success, I can get a booting Lion install if I use the inbuilt GMA graphics however as soon as I plug in a PCIe Graphics card it instantly stops booting and hangs on [PCI configuration begin]. The inbult graphics are unsupported GMA x4500hd I have tried playing with just about every boot option, I have tried installing with iatkos l2, ###### and myHack I created a custom DSDT by booting into windows and patched it figuring it had to be something to do with the BIOS but no joy npci=0x2000 and npci=0x3000 dont work rolled back IOPCIFamily.kext and AppleACPIPlatfrom.kext from 10.6.7 again with no joy have tried with three sperate graphics cards 1 ATI and 2 nvidia same result any ideas? Am I missing something simple?

    cheers just one last thing are you booting into x32 or x64? i get a "still waiting for root device" error in x32 which i think is down to my SATA in x64 mode but i am still tinkering to try and pin it down

  9. Thanks for that Peach I have given it a go but no luck using the instructions I managed to get the the device paths for the adapters PciRoot(0x0)/Pci(0x2,0x0) for the GMA950 and PciRoot(0x0)/Pci(0x1,0x0)/Pci(0x0,0x0) for the 8400GS I then put them in a merged plist like so <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd"> <plist version="1.0"> <dict> <key>PciRoot(0x0)/Pci(0x1,0x0)/Pci(0x0,0x0)</key> <dict> <key>@0,VRAM,memsize</key> <data> AAAABAAAAAg= </data> <key>@0,compatible</key> <data> TlZEQSxOVk1hYw== </data> <key>@0,device_type</key> <data> ZGlzcGxheQ== </data> <key>@0,name</key> <data> TlZEQSxEaXNwbGF5LUE= </data> <key>@1,VRAM,memsize</key> <data> AAAABAAAAAg= </data> <key>@1,compatible</key> <data> TlZEQSxOVk1hYw== </data> <key>@1,device_type</key> <data> ZGlzcGxheQ== </data> <key>@1,name</key> <data> TlZEQSxEaXNwbGF5LUI= </data> <key>NVCAP</key> <data> BAAAAAAAAwAMAAAAAAAABwAAAAA= </data> <key>NVPM</key> <data> AQAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA== </data> <key>device_type</key> <data> TlZEQSxHZUZvcmNl </data> <key>model</key> <data> R2VGb3JjZSA3MzAwIEdUIEVGSQ== </data> <key>name</key> <data> TlZEQSxQYXJlbnQ= </data> <key>rom-revision</key> <data> MzE3NQ== </data> </dict> <key>PciRoot(0x0)/Pci(0x2,0x0)</key> <dict> <key>AAPL,HasPanel</key> <data> AQAAAA== </data> <key>model</key> <data> R01BIDk1MA== </data> </dict> </dict> </plist> which gives me df0200000100000002000000720200000e00000002010c00d041030a000000000101060000010101 60000007fff04000e0000004e00560050004d0000002000000001000000000000000000000000000 0000000000000000000000000024000000400030002c005600520041004d002c006d0065006d0073 069007a00650000000c00000000000004000000081c0000006400650076006900630065005f00740 7900700065000000100000004e5644412c4765466f7263650e0000006e0061006d00650000000f00 0004e5644412c506172656e7422000000400030002c006400650076006900630065005f007400790 7000650000000b000000646973706c617922000000400031002c006400650076006900630065005f 0740079007000650000000b000000646973706c6179100000006d006f00640065006c00000017000 004765466f72636520373330302047542045464920000000400031002c0063006f006d0070006100 400690062006c00650000000e0000004e5644412c4e564d616314000000400030002c006e0061006 0065000000120000004e5644412c446973706c61792d4114000000400031002c006e0061006d0065 00000120000004e5644412c446973706c61792d4220000000400030002c0063006f006d007000610 7400690062006c00650000000e0000004e5644412c4e564d61631e00000072006f006d002d007200 50076006900730069006f006e0000000800000033313735100000004e00560043004100500000001 00000004000000000003000c000000000000070000000024000000400031002c005600520041004d 02c006d0065006d00730069007a00650000000c00000000000004000000086100000002000000020 0c00d041030a000000000101060000027fff0400100000006d006f00640065006c0000000b000000 74d4120393530200000004100410050004c002c00480061007300500061006e0065006c000000080 000001000000 however when I put that in my com.apple.boot.plist repair permissions and reboot I get I am going to carry on playing with it but its not looking good for doing this with integrated graphics and a PCIe card, I may just have to go and buy a another card for a matched pair
  10. Hi there ok bit of a strange one and probably a no go but I have done some searching around and not found anyone thats even tried it so i thought i would ask I am running dual monitors from a GeForce 8400GS, the card is enabled using and EFI string in the com.apple.boot.plist and every things is working with no issues However I have the built in Intel GMA950 on the motherboard I am using (an Asrock 2Core1333DVI-2.66G) thats sat there doing nothing, looking in the System Profiler its picked up fine but when i plug a third monitor into it the system freezes and all the new display shows is a blue screen. If you then reboot all the screens come on but but they system is totally frozen. So can you get 3 monitors from two different cards in OSX? Any help is massively appreciated I am running 10.5.4 from Iatkos 4.1i this is what i get in system profiler
