  1. I do have the retail disc, and I installed using it.
  2. Hey there everyone. First, let me thank you for taking time to read this post and for helping me. I know there are no shortages of requests (as believe me, I've read most of them!) and there are just as many methods and ideas regarding the issues...but alas, none seem to have worked for me. The Issue - Ok, so I've got a fresh snow leopard installation using 'Mac OS X Server 10.6 (experimental).vmwarevm' (google it), I've done all apple updates and installed VMTools + sound drivers. Nothing else. It's fresh, its new and its working well so far. Now, what I want is for it to register my nvidia 8800gts 640mb card. At present, its displaying the following; Which, is no good. So, what are my PC's specs? What I've read/tried : I've seen and read it all, most of which I didn't understand. My ultimate aim is to get AVID + Final Cut Pro experience, so I need to get this working as soon as possible. I've read up on 'strings', 'nvinject', 'xtexts', 'GeForece8xxxGLDriver.bundle' and christ knows what else. I've tried copying and pasting various lines into a hundred different plists and am starting to give up. I don't understand most of it at the best of times, I'm usually well technically minded, and i can follow clear instructions (he says!) but there are just so many alternatives, uncertainties and abbreviations I get lost in this really fast. I've read about Charmion as a boot - but have no need for it...(I don't think!) What I'd like someone to do: Clear, simple instructions (with video+images)?. That would be amazing. Perhaps a very brief explination on the main terms, who does what, whats outdated, what may be of use ..but most of all, some clear cut suggestions on getting my grahpics card installed and recognised so I can start editing would be AWESOME! Like i said, pictures would be awsome if possible. If someones willing to dedicate some time helping me out with this, upon completion I will be willing to make a donation over paypal... Little baby jesus help me please!

    How to upgrade from 10.6 to 10.6.2

    Hey there everyone. i've spent the last week or two doing SO much reading into running a snow leopard on my system and have it almost ready to consider 'finished' - I've got it installed with vmware, i've got sound, networks, shared folders, programs installed and just about everything, APART from my Nvidia 8800gts 640meg graphics card. So far, and I've tried a whole heap of different things, it only appears like this; http://f.imagehost.org/0086/Untitled-2.jpg which I know isn't correct. After reading up over thousands of redundant and irrelevant posts, I've managed to deduce that it IS possible to get my 8800gts to show up as installed, along with opengl + all the benefits (which I need as the only reason I'm installing this is to learn final cut pro + avid) and to do that I need NVEnabler.Kext & NVEnabler64.kext. So, that trail has led me here and boy, what a long and confusing thread it is! I've downloaded both the ktexts, reinstalled everything so that I have a completely fresh snow leopard installation. What I'm hoping is that someone is kind enough to supply a guide on how to install this 'BFG 8800GTS 640MB GDDR3 DVI PCI-E' Graphics Card so that it works correctly within the system. To find out more about the card : http://www.bfgtech.com/bfgr88640gtsoc2e.aspx thank you so much. Please help me end this nightmare and start enjoying my 'mac'

    Avid Media Composer running on Hackintosh

    Hey, hows it going. This is first post on here I'm looking to install both Final cut and Avid on my Snow Leopard installation and came across this thread. I'm a little concerned because my graphics card isn't being displayed at all inside the mac. This, as you'd imagine, would have massive problems when trying to video edit. See this image : http://f.imagehost.org/0086/Untitled-2.jpg Can someone explain how I can get it to recognize my 8800gts 640meg card so that I can run open GL, and then hopefully learn AVID/Final Cut Pro? Thanks a lot
