    Flashed my graphics card and it is not starting up

    I second this. I buy boards without integrated graphics though, so if I'm in a pickle flashing a card I just pop in an old PCI card (Diamond II) of kind that won't be picked up by the flasher itself. Easier that way.
  2. Hello folks, I'd like some of the more knowledgeable members here to verify some facts for me. Fact 1: Nvidia Mac Edition cards exist. For example 8800GT and GTX 285 which you may find inside a Mac Pro, or purchase one to put one in a Mac Pro. Are these cards recognized correctly on our hackintosh builds without modification? Fact 2: Flashing of PC Nvidia cards into Mac Edition cards when possible. References: http://forums.hexus.net/apple-mac/133400-m...-flash-mod.html http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=445488 http://reduser.net/forum/showthread.php?94...K-on-MAC-PRO-08 Or better yet, a Google search for something like "8800gt mac flash" will bring even more discussion and success on the topic. Now, if those PC cards become natively supported on Mac, shouldn't they be natively supported on our hackintoshes since on Intel architecture (x86) both Mac and PC talk to devices on the PCI the same way. Should these Mac Edition and flashed cards just work on a hackintosh? I kindly ask for answers with certainty on the subject. Thanks in advance!
  3. Hardware added to the sig. I used the xMove + [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] guide: http://tonymacx86.blogspot.com/2011/07/xmo...x-107-lion.html I deleted the saved application states as you suggested, but now it just loops the graphical server/window manager without the dialog (the mouse pointer disappears, then reappears, same with the spinning progress circle). I should note that at least some part of the video driver is working when its doing that, because it displays in my monitor's native resolution (1680x1050) and animation is smooth, rather than 1024x768 of the frame buffer. Interesting behavior. This happened right after I added my custom compiled DSDT (same effect with a DSDT from a similar board from the DSDT database). Now, if I disable Chimera graphics enabler (set to "No" in org.chameleon.Boot.plist), it boots to desktop fine. If I set it back to "Yes" it will do the looping thing again with the graphical server.
  4. On boot I get a dialog saying: "You shut down the computer because of a problem. If you want to open the applications that were open when you shut down, click Open. If you do nothing, the computer will continue the login in ## seconds." The dialog has a 60 second timer, and two buttons, Cancel and Open. When I click either button or let it time out, the dialog goes away, the screen is goes gray, then the dialog appears again and the timer resets. This just loops forever. Google returns too few results regarding the problem, and out of the few results nobody experiences the looping. What is the problem and how do I fix it? Here is a picture of the dialog:
