  1. 9800 GTX working in OSX86

    Could someone who got their 9800gtx+ 512mb working in 10.6.2 post what they did ... I had mine working with dsdt for 10.6.1 but after the update i cant get qe/ci working as well as displays! (0612) I tried the same efi strings for the boot.plist but it doesnt seem to make any difference either. Most of the info I find relates to 10.5.6 ! LOL im using chameleon rc3 with a q9550 quad core and an ep45ds3l board.
  2. 9800 GTX working in OSX86

    I can't seem to get my 9800gtx working since the .2 update of snow leopard. I had it working in .1 using dsdt strings and simulating it as an 8800gt ... Could someone who has got it working give me some pointers, right now I have no qe/ci and no display resolutions. I have been trying to enable the card using efi strings like i did in 10.5.7 but no go... I'm stumped!

  4. 10.5.7 Released

    10.5.7 upgrade went flawless!, used the standalone updater, had to repatch the alc888 driver though http://www.mediafire.com/?yuzdzx60epe (this one fixes the popping and enables the rear audio ports :-) ) ep45-ds3l using ipc 10.5.6 final vanilla 9800gtx+ 512 mb 4GB :-)
  5. How to enable QE with 9800 gtx 512 mb

    OK so after a fresh install I got it working by taking a fresh look and retracing my steps! ( why does it always come to me after i post for help! lol ) 1) generate your efi strings and add to com.apple.boot.plist ( i used uinstaller ) 2) install the 9xxx series driver, post 4 thanks to filosofem http://forum.insanelymac.com/index.php?sho...p;#entry1055167 3) Run installer nvinstaller v.52 as per google BADABING :-) Quartz extreme supported :-) Happy Days
  6. How to enable QE with 9800 gtx 512 mb

    So after some stability problems i downloaded the IPC ppf5 final and reinstalled, However I cannot for the life of me get the Video Card working again. So I am doing a fresh install and looking for some advice on how to tackle this. What is the recomended way for doing this? Has anyone had luck with the nvidia 9f23 installer? Something from aqua mac?

  13. How to enable QE with 9800 gtx 512 mb

    So last weekend i built a HackPro gigabyte ep45-ds3l Q9550 BFG GeForce 9800 GTX+ 512 4 GB ram 1.5 TB sata 2 drive from seagate LG sata DVD drive IPC 10.5.6 The board and video card were selected because they showed the most promising compatibility on the HCL I have managed to get everything working working except for the Quartz Extreme. My travels had me editing the com.apple.boot.plist and adding long hex strings and my last try was using the nvidia 9 series driver installer from aquamac. Honestly I cant remember everything i Have done over the past days but i tried eveything i could find :-) It seems all the information I can find is months old from earlier releases. Could some one who has got this working shed some light on what they did? I cant seem come up with any other ideas... Of course there is a chance I did do something wrong lol So if anyone could shed some light on a known good installation method I'd love to hear from you so i could give it a try :-)
