  1. GTX 260 on Snow Leopard

    I've got a EVGA 260 GTX Core 216 SC and an EVGA 260 GTX 192 Superclocked both running fine with the following string in /Extra/com.apple.boot.plist. The SLI bridge is connected, and SLI works great in Win7 (Thanks to x986123 on InfiniteMac - He has 2 MSIs, one 216 and one 192). This has been tested on 2 different motherboards across 3 different vendors and works under 10.6.2/3: <key>device-properties</key> <string>8e0700000100000002000000c10300001500000002010c00d041030a000000000101060000030 101060000007fff04003a000000400032002c0068007700730065006e0073006f0072002d0070006 1 00720061006d0073002d00760065007200730069006f006e00000008000000000000022200000040 0 032002c006400650076006900630065005f0074007900700065000000120000004e5644412c67707 5 2d64696f64650e0000004e00560050004d0000002000000001000000000000000000000000000000 0 000000000000000000000001e00000072006f006d002d007200650076006900730069006f006e000 0 00090000003331373261100000004e00560043004100500000001800000004000000000003000c00 0 000000000070000000022000000400032002c002300730069007a0065002d00630065006c006c007 3 000000080000000000000022000000400030002c006400650076006900630065005f007400790070 0 0650000000b000000646973706c6179100000006d006f00640065006c0000001a0000004e5649444 9 41204765466f726365204754582032363014000000400030002c006e0061006d0065000000120000 0 04e5644412c446973706c61792d4120000000400032002c0063006f006d007000610074006900620 0 6c0065000000160000004e5644412c73656e736f722d706172656e7414000000400031002c006e00 6 1006d0065000000120000004e5644412c446973706c61792d4212000000400032002c00720065006 7 00000008000000000000021c0000006400650076006900630065005f007400790070006500000010 0 000004e5644412c4765466f72636520000000400031002c0063006f006d007000610074006900620 0 6c00650000000e0000004e5644412c4e564d616326000000400032002c0023006100640072006500 7 30073002d00630065006c006c007300000008000000000000010e0000006e0061006d00650000000 f 0000004e5644412c506172656e7422000000400031002c006400650076006900630065005f007400 7 9007000650000000b000000646973706c617920000000400030002c0063006f006d0070006100740 0 690062006c00650000000e0000004e5644412c4e564d6163220000005600520041004d002c007400 6 f00740061006c00730069007a0065000000080000000000003836000000400032002c00680077006 3 00740072006c002d0070006100720061006d0073002d00760065007200730069006f006e00000008 0 000000000000214000000400032002c006e0061006d00650000001100000073656e736f722d70617 2 656e74c10300001500000002010c00d041030a000000000101060000070101060000007fff04003a 0 00000400032002c0068007700730065006e0073006f0072002d0070006100720061006d0073002d0 0 760065007200730069006f006e000000080000000000000222000000400032002c00640065007600 6 900630065005f0074007900700065000000120000004e5644412c6770752d64696f64650e0000004 e 00560050004d00000020000000010000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000 0 01e00000072006f006d002d007200650076006900730069006f006e0000000900000033313732611 0 0000004e00560043004100500000001800000004000000000003000c000000000000070000000022 0 00000400032002c002300730069007a0065002d00630065006c006c0073000000080000000000000 0 22000000400030002c006400650076006900630065005f00740079007000650000000b0000006469 7 3706c6179100000006d006f00640065006c0000001a0000004e5649444941204765466f726365204 7 54582032363014000000400030002c006e0061006d0065000000120000004e5644412c446973706c 6 1792d4120000000400032002c0063006f006d00700061007400690062006c0065000000160000004 e 5644412c73656e736f722d706172656e7414000000400031002c006e0061006d0065000000120000 0 04e5644412c446973706c61792d4212000000400032002c007200650067000000080000000000000 2 1c0000006400650076006900630065005f0074007900700065000000100000004e5644412c476546 6 f72636520000000400031002c0063006f006d00700061007400690062006c00650000000e0000004 e 5644412c4e564d616326000000400032002c0023006100640072006500730073002d00630065006c 0 06c007300000008000000000000010e0000006e0061006d00650000000f0000004e5644412c50617 2 656e7422000000400031002c006400650076006900630065005f00740079007000650000000b0000 0 0646973706c617920000000400030002c0063006f006d00700061007400690062006c00650000000 e 0000004e5644412c4e564d6163220000005600520041004d002c0074006f00740061006c00730069 0 07a0065000000080000000000003836000000400032002c00680077006300740072006c002d00700 0 6100720061006d0073002d00760065007200730069006f006e000000080000000000000214000000 4 00032002c006e0061006d00650000001100000073656e736f722d706172656e74</string>
  2. OS X install on GA-EX58-UD3R

    Did you change your bus ratio when overclocking? This may have something to do with it...
  3. All, I've seen a few threads here and there on getting OSX86 working on HP Business Notebooks but no one thread for data compilation. This is HP Business notebooks ONLY, not HP Consumer or any other brand of notebooks. Common Trend for 6510p and 8710p/w: CD to install with: I use Kalyway's 10.5.2. JaS is a great guy, but his 10.5.4 CD doesn't support HP's keyboards/trackpad on boot, so it's pretty useless unless you plug in an external USB mouse/keyboard and hack away at it. Sound: http://forum.insanelymac.com/index.php?showtopic=75313# - The 1981 Audio driver fix needs to be installed to enable Audio. Afterwards, speaker output works, as does volume control, but not mike in, stereo sound out, etc. Wireless: Intel wireless won't work. Buy a Broadcomm 4311 card from HP or off eBay and wireless support is there with the broadcomm drivers. Video: ONLY x3100 (UMA) on the 6510p, X1600M, and X3600M work. Use either Diabolik's NVKush and OpenGL files here - http://diabolik1605.com/DHF/ - Oddly enough, installing nVinject, Natit, or NVKush also enables the GMA X3100 to work with full QE/CI, just as the X1600 and X3600 do. Other stuff: USB works, Firewire works. Video/Audio Out don't. Haven't gotten Power Management working. Problems: X1600/X3600M graphics are sometimes REALLY slow, even with CI/QE. Don't know why. Sometimes they're fast, other times not. And everything mentioned above. BOOT TIME: These systems take from 5-8 minutes to fully boot OS X. Things I'd like to figure out: Why're Quadro Graphics pokey? Any way to enable external ports? Boot time? Post your responses if you have anything to add. :censored2:
  4. Nvidia G92 (8800GT) support in 10.5.2

    With the latest 10.5.2+ drivers from CycloneFR, I get decent OGL/game performance, however if the system sits at the screensaver for too long, it will hard lock. :/
  5. Take One, Leave One

    Will Smith Xmodem or Zmodem?
  6. Yes, you need to install the Soundblaster USB Support in order to enable Firewire devices as well. I've talked to JaS and it will be renamed in a future release. For the record, I've tried out a PreSonus FireBox and a RME FireFace 400 with no problems.
  7. The X1900XTX is working great. It's factory overclocked, so the performance is excellent. Video sleep works - system sleep does not. I've not tried dual monitor, but I see no reason it shouldn't work - I only use one monitor now. OS X System Profiler shows 256MB, however the OpenGL driver monitor recognizes the full 512MB. I'll trust it over the System Profiler. Without Natit, I got no mouse tearing or anything with QE/CI acceleration, just no resolution switching. With Natit, I get all of the above plus resolution switching and video sleep. Also, there's no more 20 second black screen lag between the loading screen and the OS X desktop loading. I can actually see the "Loading MacOS" progress bar now. Take a look in my signature for my XBench score. -ws
  8. After spending way too much time with this problem, I ended up picking up a Radeon X1900XTX and I returned the 7950GT. :/
  9. Natit Wiki...

    Nice catch. Go fix the Wiki with the correct entries you know of then.
  10. Natit Wiki...

    Good job. I fixed up a few HTML errors in the tables...things should look good now. :wink2:
  11. Natit Wiki...

    There are some folks who are solely using Natit on nVidia cards who haven't used Titan, and they should post their experiences under the utility that they used. Since Titan is no longer under active development, I think it's good to keep both seperate.
  12. Natit Wiki...

    http://wiki.osx86project.org/wiki/index.php/Natit Go on and add your info and help create a central repository for known working/known nonworking cards!
  13. The Radeon X1900XTX 512MB Toxic card from Sapphire works great with Natit_Auto without modifications, however, Display properties only recognizes 256MB of RAM. Anyone have any ideas how to fix this? The OpenGL driver monitor /does/ show that the driver is recognizing the complete 512MB correctly. Thanks.
  14. I've got an ADD-2 Silicon Image PCIe x16 card that will allow you to run dual-headed on any 915G or 945G chipset-based board (GMA900/GMA950) - Worked perfectly in OSX86 - I just upgraded to a Radeon X1900XTX. - $23 shipped anywhere in the US. Card is in mint condition. I've used this card in both an Intel D915GAVL and an Asus P5LD2-VM 2.0 with no problems.
  15. Natit Wiki Page?

    Initially, since Natit did the exact same thing Titan did, I didn't think it was necessary, but since Natit is being actively developed and no one's put entries into the 10.4.8 Wikis with ATi Natit success stories, shouldn't we have a Natit-specific page to serve as a guide to which cards work well with Natit? Any thoughts? cn: The Wiki needs a Natit page to go along with its Titan page.
