    The Fermi "Freeze" Discussion (Possible solutions?)

    @Chief9999 Dont have a 450 myself, but it should be possible to get the card working... Sandi Bridge I am not sure about. Why not Lion though? The support for both sandi & fermi is much better...

    10.7.2 Problems

    Have you tried the QE/CI Nvidia Enabler in [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] Lion edition along with your DSDT, and GraphicsEnabler=No? *EDIT* sorry, just saw that its a fermi openCL enabler... does not apply to 250! As for icloud and appstore, try the updated Chameleon on kexts.com: http://www.kexts.com/view/1941-chameleon_2.1_r1627vs_[icloud__facetime_fix].html And then also create a valid SMBios with champlist for example.. (http://awesome-studio.tk/champlist/) App Store also had a thing about resetting your network prefs and/or setting EthernetBuiltIn=Yes... Hope that helps BTW, to anyone with black screen, you can still get into your mac if you have screen sharing turn on. Just use another mac to view the desktop using screen sharing! If you want to go kext-less, you can always try patching DSDT using tonymacx guide. If you get a black screen on bootup, just add the fix mentioned above.

    Thanks D!! also, if anyone is also looking for the back screen fix, its on another thread in this forum: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php...t&p=1759594

    Having similar problem.. what was the solution?

    Thanks An1r0n, thats an excellent find. Are you confirming that your KP/freezes are gone after this fix? Testing out now on my 460GTX... will post again after I give it some time to potentially crash. note: I didn't need to inject any custom efi strings. I believe that Chameleon 2 rc5 already has efi strings built in for Fermi cards.

    The fix addresses an issue people are having in both windows and hackintosh. Think of it as a bios update on your motherboard.

    I imagine that flashing video card bios MAY void warranty?

    The Fermi "Freeze" Discussion (Possible solutions?)

    After some more digging, I have found a thread talking about people having issues with Fermi cards freezing in windows as well. One specific thread suggests that it is an incompatibility with some motherboards. I think this explains why some people experience no more issues when swapping motherboards on their hackintoshes. Apparently, nivida is working on the issue. I just hope that they release whatever update they make for windows drivers to the Quadro mac driver that we are using... source: http://forums.nvidia.com/index.php?showtopic=187401 EDIT: I would also like to mention there are some other possible fixes that the thread mentions! quoting from the thread: -Change PnP/PCI Express Maximum Payload Size from 128 to 4096 -Setting PCI-E Frequency either to 100, 103, 105, or 110 -Setting PCI-E Slot wattage to 50, 75 or the highest you can go. If you're blessed enough to have this setting, you're in luck! A lot of people say this solves their issue! -Setting your PCI-E slot to run at 8x, 4x or 2x instead of 16x. There's usually not BIOS setting for this, it's all automatic. -Up your IOH Vcore voltage -NB Voltage: Upping it or sometimes lowering it. You'll have to play around with it. -HT Link Frequency: Setting this lower can help. -Zooze seems to have success enabling the USB Keyboard and Mouse Option in the BIOS, so it's worth a shot."

    New possible fix I have dug up from the OSx86 Wiki: (source: http://wiki.osx86project.org/wiki/index.php/HCL_10.6.6) Try pushing PCIe to 102 Mhz (supposedly stops freezes on EVGA superclocked 470 GTX) anyone? I got a KP but no freezes yet. not sure if they are connected.

    Give it a shot, just for {censored} and giggles see how long it takes... My machine just crashed, even without the kext and in i386. So that was a bust... same old error for me: 11-03-27 5:18:30 PM com.apple.WindowServer[104] Sun Mar 27 17:18:30 xxxxx-Mac-Pro.local WindowServer[104] <Error>: kCGErrorFailure: Set a breakpoint @ CGErrorBreakpoint() to catch errors as they are logged.

    I guess I should explain what I was thinking: - I find it interesting that he couldn't even get his machine to be stable for longer than 30 min with 64 bit kernel... Maybe our crashes are then caused by 64bit programs running, even though the kernel is running the stable 32 bit? - I took into consideration that he used DSDT fixes instead of using kexts. Seems more stable for me, no crashes even without vlc background playing, not sure if its fluke or actually makes a difference... - for the record, disabled C-states, but enabled speedstep. - appleupstreauserclient is supposedly a kext that sends commands to nvidia graphics cards. These commands dont exist in PC versions of the cards. A while back they caused mouse lag issues for nvidia users running hackintosh (since the kext would send commands every few seconds that the graphics card wouldn't understand and raise an error). Now, I have a feeling it might be tied to our crashing problem. What I'm having trouble understanding is how this would connect to the temporary fix: in not letting the video card idle... but maybe the kext is somehow connected? That a question is for someone way more knowledgeable in OSX though...

    This might be interesting... http://www.tonymacx86.com/viewtopic.php?f=76&t=16179 Anyone try this? Currently I seem stable even without removing AppleUpstreamUserClient.kext. If i crash anytime soon, I will try removing as well...

    I believe the 4000 Quadro drivers for OSX. you can find here: http://www.nvidia.com/object/quadro-macosx...3v7-driver.html BTW, regarding freezing, having same problem as everyone here: - freezes in 10.6.6 and 10.6.7 with latest drivers from nivida. - no cuda installed... anyone know if this makes a difference? I would imagine not, since it serves separate function... Of course, looped video in VLC works perfectly... RE: jpa and his BIOS fix, anyone tried it? I will try once I reboot, but it seems somewhat strange that CPU settings will mess up the graphics drivers... @og-phantom, could your change be different bios settings? maybe connected to jpa's finding i mentioned above? Im still getting freeze with the latest driver in 10.6.7, so I wouldn't say its fixed by nvidia yet..
