  1. Anyone mobile Kepler 6xxM working?

    Hey there finally had some time, really sorry about not posting the gfxutil output before, I actually did run the command but forgot to post the output. here it is: DevicePath = PciRoot(0x0)/Pci(0x1,0x0)/Pci(0x0,0x0) By the way I am on 10.9.3 but I am using the NVIDIA kexts from 10.9.2 as i heard there we problems with the new drivers, is that a problem? I think i have 10.9.2 on a usb so i can always reinstall if needed. On a another note i though that maybe osx wasn't being able to load the VBios for the built in NVidia card, so i extracted it from the main Bios and load it up through clover. It appeared in System report but not much changed. Any other ideas?
  2. Anyone mobile Kepler 6xxM working?

    You might be right well I'm about to do the test right now, I reinstalled maverick to start fresh, I'll get back with the results as soon as i finish them. Update: So i did a couple of things: -I tried using your config on clover but there was no change at all. -I tried it with NVidia web drive still no luck. -I tried Nvidia web drives alone and the Ultrabay card now actually displays a loaded VBios I remember once, when doing research on injecting nvidia cards i think i came to a post of AEROS on that ROG laptop you mention, and i added that efi string to a configuration i had and i remembered that it actually affected the integrated NVIDIA card. So i went looking for that config and luckily i found it. -So i used that config i had and the Built in NVidia card is changed to i think a GTX 680 (Its a bit late) This is a quick recap, I'll write a better(more detail) post tomorrow with all the ioregs i got after injection and with web drives. Update 2: Here are all the files WebDrives.ioreg - i think this also contains you efi string but it didn't affect any of the devices. WebDrivesPlusInjected.Ioreg - this has the injected efi string from the config file i had. And changed the built in nvidia card. and ofcourse the actual config.plist i used. Here is the actual efi string if anyone else wants to take a look at <key>Properties</key> <string>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</string> On a different note, i wanted to find out to which device was the screen attach to when in SLI mode so first i booted in without the ultra bay card(optimus mode) and the LCD bios path was set to: \_SB.PCI0.GFX0.DD1F When i put-back the ultrabay card and checked the LCD path it was now set to: \_SB.PCI0.PEG0.PEGP.LCD And here is the path for each graphics card: HD4600 \_SB.PCI0.GFX0 Built in NVidia: \_SB.PCI0.PEG0.PEGP UltraBay Card \_SB.PCI0.PEG1.PEGP So according to Windows Device Property when in Optimus mode the LCD is attached to the HD4600, but when SLI is activated and optimus disabled, the LCD is now attached to the built in NVidia card. Thus lenovo must have a hardware switch that is activated when the ultrabay card is put in, since SLI doesn't work with optimus, and switches so that the lcd gets connected to the built in card, no? Wish there was out there more information on how this Nvidia SLI laptops work or what technology they used, it would make this much easier. Edit: I forgot to mention that with the Nvidia web drive, it now load the VBios for the ultrabay card, so i guess it means that it is fully operational, ofcourse since its not attached to the LCD nothing is display. Anyone know how this can happen? how is it that the built in card is not natively detected like the ultrabay card, they are the same model and have the same id and everything. Files.zip
  3. Anyone mobile Kepler 6xxM working?

    I actually have clover in a usb and my main hard drive so i can definitely do those test, I'm away from my laptop right now. The reason i wanted to get the built in NVidia card working instead of the ultrabay one is because according to windows the built in one is connected to the LCD. I'll report back as soon as i make the test, thanks for taking the time to look into this.
  4. Anyone mobile Kepler 6xxM working?

    Finally got my replacement phone. So i did a darwin dump and an Ioreg(v2.1) for the system. Anyone know why the system properly detects the ultrabay Nvidia 755m card but not the built in Nvidia 755m card? DarwinDumper_2.9.3_INSYDE_Corp._X64_Mav_lmaurad.zip dualnvidia.zip
  5. Anyone mobile Kepler 6xxM working?

    Damn, I used v3. My phone broke, and i was using it to log on to the system through vnc to get the ioregs. I'll have to wait till i get my replacement one as i don't have another device available.
  6. Laptop - Lenovo IdeaPad Y510p - 10.9 - Mavericks

    You can definitly boot osx in UEFI mode as I am doing it right now, it probably depends on how your installing osx(i might be wrong), from my trial and errors installing osx on this laptop: -If installed it in legacy mode I wasn't able to boot it in UEFI mode -If installed in UEFI mode i wasn't able to load osx in legacy mode. In my case I have Windows in the same drive, I'll leave my clover.config here as well as the kexts i'm currently using. I'm thinking of writing a proper installation guide using clover as soon as I get it working properly. But for the moment i hope this helps you. -With this config the HD4600 is working properly (you have to change profile in display preferences to remove a weird color artifacts in the menu bar) -Ethernet Can you point me to any reference that states that the Internal NVidia card is not directly attach to the LCD (through lvsd)? As I understand an Optimus laptop won't work because the dedicated card writes to the Integrated graphics card buffer to display to the screen. However with this laptop when it is in SLI mode Optimus is disabled by the bios, hence in windows there is no trace of the HD4600, or in Linux and OSX for that matter. Now i cant say with certainty that the LCD is connected directly to the Internal NVIdia card, but that seems to be the case, if you look online in various(Linux) forums this laptop Nvidia Cards (SLI) get properly detected without bumblebee(linux Optimus), not only that but if you extract the SSDTs for this laptop when in Optimus Mode and SLI mode you will see that the bios is passing different SSDT0 and SSDT1 to the system(completely turning off the HD4600). Rather it seems the Nvidia card is not working is because: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/284767-anyone-mobile-kepler-6xxm-working/page-9 " AREOS Hey, after some tests, I have a theory to explain why this machine and many other with mobile keepers fail on the screen detection, and why the EFI string does´t work with this machines. It seems that apple is setting up some info on the DSDT+SSDT, to enable the port detection system, and this combined with the EFI string on the machine enables to use the perfect port for the output the machine have. With the kepler on my G750 and the Alienware M17R4, and with many desktop cards this info is "empty" so the drivers enables a "generic" detection system, this is why we get the NVCAP <05 00 00 00 00 00 ff ff ff ff 00 00 00 00 00 0e 00 00 00 00> with all the NVDA,display-A, B, C, D, outputs detected on the same port, (port02 on G750, port09 on Alienware). With Nvidia Web Drivers this port detection is working to this "empty" info DSDT+SSDT systems. but in your G75 there is a lot of info into DSDT." Clover Files.zip
  7. Anyone mobile Kepler 6xxM working?

    Here is the ioreg if anyone wants to take a look, the ultrabay card is recognize properly but the internal Nvidia 755M card is just recognize as a "NVIDIA chip model" Booting without NVResman works, but ofcourse the system doesn't load any NVidia drivers. MacBookRegistry.zip
  8. Anyone mobile Kepler 6xxM working?

    Bummer, I guess i have to settle for the HD4600 for now. Hopefully someone shows up that can help us sort this out.
  9. Anyone mobile Kepler 6xxM working?

    Yup we need to figure this out, but from what I read (I might be wrong) AREOS wanted a system where the card was not only recognize but the NVidia drivers loaded, that is NVDAResman.next, NVDAstartup.kext and NVDAHal... Etc So that we can use that info to try to inject different parameter and see if the system responds. No?
  10. Anyone mobile Kepler 6xxM working?

    Hopefully AREOS reads this post or someone can get a hold of him, reading through this whole thread I I wanted to try some of the theories layed out here. I have a lenovo Y510p laptop Sli with Dual 755m Nvidia cards(One sits in an ultrabay slot), I was facing the same issues as most of you, I kept getting the lmessage that the Nvidia drivers were loaded but the system wouldn't load the GUI. So I set VNC screen sharing and tried to logon to the system using my cellphone. And to my surprise the system recognize the ultrabay card as Nvidia 755m 2GB card but it didn't recognize the non removable 755m card that is attached to the display hence no GUI. I ran kextstat and the NVidia kexts are loaded. I think the non removable card has the same problem as the rest of you that is its not being properly recognize by osx. My thinking is maybe we can inject the data from the ultrabay 755m card into the non removable card and see if osx loads the drivers for it, maybe even disable the ultrabay card through dsdt. I saved the ioreg through vnc for when the ultrabay card is recognize, can anyone get a hold of AEROS or someone that can help us inject that data. I'll post the ioregs as soon as I get home (about 5hrs). Let's get this Nvidia cards working.
  11. So I have a Lenovo Idepad Y510p Sli with Dual Nvidia GeForce 755m cards (One NVidia card can be removed as it sits in the ultrabay slot) The unique thing about this laptop is that when both Nvidia cards are in, the bios disables Optimus, that is if i load windows/linux/maverick there is no trace of the HD4600 integrated card. It only shows two cards in pci express slots, one as a video adapter card and the other one as a video accelerator card. If i take the ultrabay Nvidia card out, and turn on the computer, the computer flashes for a second reboots itself within 3 secs(almost like if it was loading a different bios). If i then boot into windows then Optimus is enable and I can see the HD4600 card. Thus the internal NVidia card must be connected directly to the LCD correct? otherwise it wouldn't be able to display anything. I remember that when I had my Asus N56VZ(Nvidia 650m?) laptop with optimus, and was able to disable it using a modded bios. If i tried to load Windows or OSX i would get a black screen(nothing on the lcd just hdmi output.) But this is not the case here. Do you guys think there is a chance to get this card working? Or am i beating a dead horse here. Anyway i can confirm that the lvds is connected to the Nvidia card? I can provide my ioreg, and DSDT's, and AIDA64 reports if necessary. I should also mention that I took DSDT's and SDDT's when the laptop is in Optimus Mode and when it is in Discrete Mode. Both DSDT's are almost exactly the same they only differ on certain OperationRegions, however when looking at SSDT0 in Optimus Mode it shows the NVidia Card and the Integrated Graphics card, when looking at the SSDT0 for Discrete mode there is no mention of the integrated card and it just shows both NVidia cards.
  12. what works what doesnt 10.10

    I'm having a really weird issue(latest clover Haswell Yosemite Fix) maybe someone can help me out. I have a Laptop Lenovo Y510p Sli (Dual GeForce 755m). The second Nvidia card can be removed as the laptop has an ultrabay slot. So when the ultrabay card is in, Optimus is disabled and if i load windows/linux or maverick it just shows the two nvidia cards with no trace of the HD4600. If I take the ultrabay card out, Optimus is Enabled and the HD4600 card is picked up. I was able to install OSX 10.10 with the ultrabay card in. However I haven't been able to get OSX to properly recognize the NVidia card, so i wanted to tryout my config for the HD4600 on Osx 10.10, so I took the ultrabay card out to activate optimus but now Clover refused to load, all i get is a black screen. If i pop the ultrabay card back in, clover loads without a problem. I thought that maybe something in the config.plist was causing the issue, but it seems to do with the code that was added to fix the hasswell Yosemite reboot. To test this i had another usb with a different version of clover(not sure which) and i tested it with the ultrabay card in and out, and it worked without a problem. Is there anyway to test whats causing the problem?
  13. Laptop - Lenovo IdeaPad Y510p - 10.9 - Mavericks

    No need to restore kexts just changing the display configuration in the system preference will fix that. Go to System Preferences Click on Displays Go to the Color Tab Change to the Display profile, click on each and see which one fixes it. On a different note OSX 10.10 installed fine on this machine, working on getting graphics to work. Clover is refusing to load once i remove one of the Nvidia cards. Might have to see if we can get this NVIdia cards working. They should as optimus is disable when both cards are in. Anyone else having luck on that side?
  14. Laptop - Lenovo IdeaPad Y510p - 10.9 - Mavericks

    If your getting like a purple/blue artifacts on the top bar, go to systemm preferences, then display, and choose a different config for your display. I can't think the ecxact name, I'm installing Osx Yosemite on this laptop as soon as I get it running I'll lookup the name.
  15. Laptop - Lenovo IdeaPad Y510p - 10.9 - Mavericks

    the problem is that you must used a patched kernel, or patch it with the code i gave you before. To make things a bit simpler i'll attach my kernel, copy to the root of your usb installer and see if it loads. If the installer works, then copy the same kernel to the root of your Osx drive. mach_kernel.zip
