  1. Fabio- After applying the newest Chameleon update (via Chameleon Wizard) and the DSDT from April, I now get orange hard disk icons. Please advise.
  2. Has anyone managed to get 5.1 or 7.1 surround to work with the posted audio kexts? I'm able to get 2-channel sound perfectly, though I'd really like to have 5.1 support. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    That problem can be remedied by using only alphanumeric characters as your volume titles. I found that using any accented characters, for instance, replicates your problem.

    Yep, I'm experiencing the same vsync issue myself, and nothing I've tried has fixed it. Alas! Someday we'll see a more-developed driver perhaps!

    Would it be right to assume that the nVidia driver is to blame? I've tried switching between the two refresh rates allowed by OS X (59.9 and 60Hz), but that doesn't seem to do anything for me. It would be nice to have a solution for that...

    Well, I don't have experience with that BIOS or board, but I do own that EVGA card, and it works splendidly with my configuration. I have a P6T Deluxe V2 from ASUS, using a custom DSDT, and I'm very pleased. The only thing I've noticed with the card is that I have a horizontal "line" about 1/3 of the way down from the top of my screen that is an area of choppiness with moving video. Not really sure what that's all about.. but I have full resolution, Quartz, so on and so forth.

    Thanks for posting this, though it actually broke my memory detection, so I reinstalled [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url]'s Chameleon loader. If it helps my motherboard is a P6T Deluxe V2, and I'm using DDR3 1600-clocked G.Skill RAM. Using the attached Chameleon, my RAM is detected as unknown DDR2-800.

    RAM detection did get messed up with the supplied bootloader, though I found a build of RC4 that both worked for Fermi and had proper RAM detection. If you'd like, I can try to find the website again, else I could simply post my boot file. Would that be sufficient? EDIT: Actually, come to think of it, I think I just used the latest [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] with the MacPro4,1 i7 smbios and Chameleon 2.0 RC4 by AsereBLN. Works like a charm for me! I tested again and it still works, even after changing my RAM's speed in my BIOS it displays properly.

    For what it's worth, I have an EVGA GTX 470 (superclocked, if it matters), and I was able to get everything working by using the files from this thread. My process: 1. Install OS X as normal (I used the Boot 132 method for my particular motherboard) 2. Update immediately to 10.6.4 3. Install CUDA drivers from nVidia's website (I just searched "OS X" on their site and it was one of the first results; not sure if this is necessary, but eventually I'd like to test to see if there is, indeed, CUDA support) 4. Install nVidia drivers from first page of this thread 5. Copy nVidia-enabled boot file to / (though it seems any RC5 Chameleon works fine) 6. Edit com.apple.Boot.plist to include the equivalent of "GraphicsEnabler=y" 7. Reboot 8. My display worked in 1080p immediately (I was using HDMI at the time) 9. Installed the Chameleon prefpane 10. Went inside Chameleon prefpane to the EFI section and had it display the current graphics plist that was loaded in memory 11. Copied that output, saved as plist to Desktop 12. Edited plist to include vram being 0x50000000 (1280MB for the GTX 470, as OS X thought that the card had no video RAM) 13. Opened OSX86 tools, imported plist from step 12, converted to hex string 14. Copied hex string into EFI section of Chameleon prefpane (though you could edit com.apple.Boot.plist by hand) 15. Rebooted.. tada! OS X thinks I have 1280MB vram ONLY by editing my "current" graphics plist (however it retrieves that, I don't know, but I only ever saw reference to that option in the Chameleon prefpane I stumbled upon) was I able to both avoid black screens and retain all /three/ of my card's outputs: 2 DVI and 1 HDMI. OS X is able to use all three ports just fine, though I haven't tried more than one monitor. Another note: the CUDA drivers I installed also installed a CUDA prefpane, which lists driver versions for both CUDA and the nVidia desktop driver; it says both are up-to-date on my machine, despite the drivers from the first page of this thread supposedly being older than current. With all of the above said, I have QE/CI, and everything seems to function normally. I am able to playback 1080p video content without any hiccups. Is there any way I can test CUDA performance or anything of the like? From what I've seen so far, things appear normal, and they work wonderfully. I hope the above steps are of some assistance to someone!

    Hey, first post (I think). By chance, did you boot into OS X after restarting from Windows (ergo: NOT a cold boot into OS X)? The reason I ask is that what you're seeing there might be remnants of the video buffer from when Windows last rebooted. It might not have flushed completely. What I'm saying is.. if you did indeed restart from Windows, what you're seeing is at least part of the actual framebuffer. This is exciting
