  1. FX5200 Works ! 10.5.5 and 10.5.6

    Hi Fillerue, I had the same issues as you mentioned above. I have an intel p4 2.8Ghz with FX5200 AGP 128MB card, and I'm using IDeneb 1.4 (10.5.6) release. These are the steps i took in order to make QE/CI work: Step 1: 1.) Install OSx86 with no video drivers, injectors (NVkush, NVinject, etc.), nor AGPGart. 2.) Right after installation, boot with parameters -s -v. 3.) Remove all references to Geforce drivers: /sbin/fsck -fy /sbin/mount -uw / rm -R /System/Library/Extensions/Ge* rm -R /System/Library/Extensions/NVD* rm -R /System/Library/Extensions.mkext exit Now your system shouldn't hang anymore, and you'll be able to create an account and login. 4.) Open OSX86Tools and click on Add EFI Strings/Boot Flag button. 5.) Click on GFX Strings icon, and choose Custom GeForce... from the Graphics Card drop-down. 6.) Choose VRAM size (card's memory) and NVCAP (VGA/DVI-I if VGA is on the side of the motherboard) and click on Import String to Boot Editor icon. 7.) On the Boot Editor window, click on Apply changes to com.apple.Boot.plist and restart your system. You should now see in System Analyzer that your card is recognized, but no QE/CI. Step 2: 1.) Install NVidia Universal Installer (Thank you MacNutty). You will be logged-out and logged back in automatically. 2.) Open OSX86Tools , check Repair Permissions, Clear Extensions Cache and Touch Extensions Folder, and click the Run Selected Tasks button. When finished, restart your system. You should now see in System Analyzer that QE/CI is enabled, but with scrambled graphics. Step 3: To fix the graphics issue use Sanya method: If you have a 10.5.5 dvd (i use IAKTOS 5i): 1.) Insert 10.5.5 dvd and open Pacifist. 2.) Click on Open Apple Install Discs, and choose your dvd. 3). When finished, use the search box to locate CoreGraphics.framework. 4.) Right click on it, and choose Install to Default Location. Replace files if prompt. 5.) Restart your system. If you don't have a 10.5.5 dvd (Thank you JESS Fortress): 1.) Download and install 10.5.5 CoreGraphics. 2.) Restart your system. You should now have QE/CI enabled and working well. Hope that helps.
