  1. For some reason I didn't get the email about a reply until now, so hopefully you've figured it out already. Anyway, you have to find out what the device ID is for your card. I don't remember exactly how I did that, but I think you have to use a DOS program. I just made a DOS bootable usb drive with that program on it, ran the program, wrote down the device ID. Then you just find those kexts and edit them, adding in the device ID (it will be clear to you where to put them when you see them).
  2. I haven't read of any G210s having different IDs, and after a PM I received I'm not inclined to believe that the IDs are so important. Sometimes what you are describing happened for me too (though GraphicsEnabler=y NEVER worked). In those cases, I did this: Boot with -s flag (single user mode) type: mount -uw / rm -rf /System/Library/Extensions/NV* rm -rf /System/Library/Extensions/ATI* and that allowed me to at least boot (by the way I learned that from www.fleebailey33.org - a good site for Asus P6T hackintosh support). Also I never got it working on 10.6.0. I think the 10.6.4 update may have been key.
  3. Where did you put your audio device ID? I assume that's just for HDMI? Anyway, I think GraphicsEnabler=No is the key for getting the G210 to work. With that you can at least boot into safe mode I couldn't get any EFI strings to work, but NVEnabler 64.kext seems to be working just fine so far for me. I'd kind of like to try your EFI string, but at the same time I'm hesitant to break my hackintosh now that it's working 99% and stable.
  4. Thanks for your reply. I have since gotten the card working 100% for one VGA monitor (I haven't tried DVI, HDMI, or dual yet) by using NVEnabler and updating to 10.6.4. However, if I have problems with NVEnabler in the future I will try the EFI string again.

    Did you add your device ID to NVDAResman and NVDANV50hal kexts?
  6. In the info.plist of NVDANV50Hal.kext I added the following to the IOPCIPrimaryMatch string: 0x0a6510de&0xfff0ffff because my device ID was 0a65 (DPCIManager helped me find this) In the info.plist of NVDAResman.kext I added the following to the IOPCIPrimaryMatch string: 0x0a6510de&0xfff8ffff I don't know what the significance of the 0xfff0ffff or 0xfff8ffff stuff is, or even if I have these 100% correct, I just tried them and it worked (so far). In either case I just added those IDs, I didn't delete the ones that were already there.
  7. Okay, I have my ECS SilentSeries G210 mostly working - QE/CL is working, and I can change resolutions without getting the blue screen. I haven't tested DVI, HDMI, or dual monitors yet. Here's how I did it: -10.6.4 combo updater -Got rid of my previous EFI string and set GraphicsEnabler=n in com.Apple.Boot.plist -Installed NVEnabler 64.kext -Added my device ID to NVDAResman.kext and NVDANV50hal.kext

    Allright Y'all, if you've been in 'a world of pain' because of your G210, this may help you: I have my G210 nearly working (it was not even nearly working before in 10.6.0). I installed the 10.6.4 update and used an EFI string with my own nvcap (added after I converted the .plist to hex since NVCAP maker only outputs hex) and PCI address added ( and GraphicsEnabler=n no NVEnabler). Right now QE/CL is working (!) and the card is shown correctly in System Profiler, BUT I cannot change resolutions without causing it to go to blue screen (even after restart), so I'm stuck in 800x600 for now. I'm going to work more on this, I feel like I'm close to getting it working. If you have any tips, please tell me. Once I get it working I'll post the winning combination. I'm using a ECS EliteGroup Silent Series G210 with 512MB DDR3. UPDATE I now have QE/CL and can change resolutions without crashing. DVI, HDMI, and Dual Displays are still untested. Here's how I did it: -10.6.4 Combo Updater package (not through Software Update) -GraphicsEnabler=n in com.apple.boot.plist -NVEnabler 64.kext -Added my device ID to NVResman.kext and NVDANV50hal.kext
  9. No I'm a beginner... all I know is that the G210 was a bad choice.
  10. Well I have a G210 and I have spent days trying to get it working, with no success yet. I think it would be better to get the 9500GT, as more people have gotten that working. But don't count on it being a fast install. I think the best option would be to buy 3 video cards, get the easiest one working, and sell the other two...

    Here's something I don't understand. I too have a G210, and in the EFI strings that I've downloaded, in the .plist file the NVCAP is always BAAAAAAAAwAQAAAAAAAABwAAAAA== or something like that. I got the ROM from my g210 and NVCAP maker said my NVCAP was 0400000000000300080000000000000700000000 . So the same as yours except for that 8. Now all the guides I've read say to put that into your .plist in the NVCAP string, but what NVCAP maker makes is clearly a different format (hex?). So can you put that into your .plist, or do you have to convert it to xml (and HOW?)?
  12. Hi, I'm trying to get my G210 (ECS Elite Group) to work. I assume that I should add this into the empty space for Device (PEGP) after Device (GFX0) in my decompiled DSDT.aml that DSDT Patcher 1.0.1e generates (so into the dsdt_fixed.txt file). However, when I put ./iasl -ta ../Debug/dsdt_fixed.txt into Terminal to recompile the new DSDT.aml, I get errors from the compiler ../Debug/dsdt_fixed.txt 13788: If (SS1) Error 4095 - ^ syntax error, unexpected PARSEOP_IF ../Debug/dsdt_fixed.txt 13832: \_SB.PCI0.SBRG.SIOS (Arg0) Error 4063 - Object does not exist ^ (\_SB.PCI0.SBRG.SIOS) ../Debug/dsdt_fixed.txt 13833: \_SB.PCI0.SBRG.SPTS (Arg0) Error 4063 - Object does not exist ^ (\_SB.PCI0.SBRG.SPTS) ../Debug/dsdt_fixed.txt 13834: \_SB.PCI0.NPTS (Arg0) Error 4063 - Object does not exist ^ (\_SB.PCI0.NPTS) ../Debug/dsdt_fixed.txt 13840: \_SB.PCI0.SBRG.SIOW (Arg0) Error 4063 - Object does not exist ^ (\_SB.PCI0.SBRG.SIOW) ../Debug/dsdt_fixed.txt 13841: \_SB.PCI0.SBRG.SWAK (Arg0) Error 4063 - Object does not exist ^ (\_SB.PCI0.SBRG.SWAK) ../Debug/dsdt_fixed.txt 13842: \_SB.PCI0.NWAK (Arg0) Error 4063 - Object does not exist ^ (\_SB.PCI0.NWAK) I don't get these errors when I recompile the DSDT that DSDT Patcher generates. What is the problem? Also, is this DSDT part really important to make your EFI string work? Because I already tried your EFI String (with my own PciRoot(0x0)/Pci(0x3,0x0) and it didn't work. Parts of Finder appeared, and the menubar was translucent, but I couldn't click anything. Same with the first G210 EFI string posted here. GraphicsEnabler doesn't work for me, I have it set to n.\ Thanks
  13. Do you get any text before that happens? Right now I get text until it says "DSMOS loaded" or something, then a blue flash, then black screen.
  14. What network cards work?

    I got a BCM94322MC (A Dell-branded one) for my vanilla 10.6.0 MSI Wind and it works 100% as an airport card with no additional drivers or anything. Gets good reception, too.
  15. After a very smooth 10.6 install to an MSI Wind, I thought I'd build myself a Core i7 system from scratch with an Asus P6T motherboard. But all is not well this time around... So I'm attempting to install from a MBR flash drive with two partitions, with Chameleon RC4 installed (via this installer ) on one partition. My snow leopard retail DVD is restored to the other partition. Chameleon GUI appears, and I select the other partition with the snow leopard installer on it. Then I get "Can't find mach_kernel". I assume Chameleon is looking in the wrong partition. What do I put into com.apple.Boot.plist to get it to look in the right place? I turned on view hidden files in Terminal, and I've seen mach_kernel in the installer partition, so I know it's there. By the way, if there is a different install method I should use, such as using just one partition, please tell me what you think. However, a number of methods won't even boot for me- Chameleon doesn't appear, just a blinking dash. I tried to install with the myHack method, which seemed reputable, but Chameleon didn't even appear there either. I've also tried with an RC3 installer, and there I got to the language selection menu in the Snow Leopard installer, but I couldn't click on anything. I also tried an RC5 installer, and that gave me "can't find mach_kernel" also. Thanks for your help
