  1. Basic guide about nVidia kexts

    thanks for your quick reply sir. i did a little study on this Chameleon bootloader. and I think this might be a good boot loader to change my GRUB2. since it has a GUI as a bootloader. Now my concern is if I install it as my new bootloader, can it detect my win7 and my ubuntu? I'm going to try your advice and hope for a change in OSX transitions. I'm really amazed on this Chameleon since it uses icons as my list of OS unlike GRUB2 that only shows names of the OS.
  2. Triple Boot Project: OS X 10.6, win7 Pro, Ubuntu 10.04

    hi, i have the same setup but on a vaio notebook. since vaio was pre-installed with vista, i ended up upgrading the vista into win7. then i partition my hard drive using disk management in win7. 25G for mac osx and another 25G for Ubuntu 10.04. I installed OSX on the second partition then Ubuntu 10.04 on the third. since Ubuntu 10.04 now uses GRUB2 bootloader, It can now detect my windows 7 and OSX. I do have the same list in OSX, a 32 bit and a 64 bit OSX. Doesn't bother me at all. Since having an option to run a 32bit and a 64bit OSX gave you the power to install some kext files as your drivers.
  3. Basic guide about nVidia kexts

    hi all, i have the a problem with my graphic card. or i think its the refresh rate. i have a resolution of 1440x900 (internal lcd) but its not showing me a smooth transition. so that must be the refresh rate, right? the system profiler shows only a total of 32MB VRAM but it supposed to be a 256MB. here's what it says: Display: Type: GPU Bus: PCIe PCIe Lane Width: x16 VRAM(Total): 32 MB Vendor: NVIDIA (ox10de) Device ID: 0x0426 Revision ID: 0x00a1 Display: Resolution: 1440x900 Pixel Depth: 32-bit Color (ARGB8888) Main Display: Yes Mirror: Off Online: Yes My graphic card is NVidia 8400M GT. By the way, on your post, one of the choices to have this nvidia kext is to have the Chameleon bootloader right? I happen to have an Ubuntu 10.04 and GRUB2 as my bootloader. Does installing this Chameleon affect my GRUB2 bootloader? Please help me with this, cause its the last kext I've been searching for days now. I've tried NVInject and didn't work out. I also tried updating my kernel from Darwin 10.6.2 to 10.6.4 (coz' the nvdia graphic driver update require the 10.6.4 kernel) but it only messed up my system and I have to reinstall everything from the scratch. by the way, my graphic card is not listed in the list of supported cards in osx86tool in gfx strings.
  4. Snow Leopard Graphics Update 1.0

    can this update solve my problem with 8400m gt? i've been spending days looking for this to work. and it only works in snow leopard 10.6.4 right? i'm still in 10.6.2. i have issues in upgrading from 10.6.2 to 10.6.4.
  5. 3 more drivers for Mac OSX Snow Leopard

    any help on this guys? I've tried NVInstaller but it doesnt seem to work on me. There's an error upon installation of this NVInstaller. The error says: System extension cannot be used The system extension /System/Library/Extension/NVInjectGo.kext was installed improperly and cannot be used. Please try reinstalling it, or contact the product's vendor for an update. I was hoping this would fix my last kext problem. My GForce 8400M GT doesnt seems to work. It only tells it is 32mb while in windows 7, it is 256mb and I have a problem on refresh rate. Im using the internal lcd.
  6. 3 more drivers for Mac OSX Snow Leopard

    Just an update on this post. I already configure the audio by updating my kernel Darwin 10.0 to Darwin 10.2. After installation, the speakers are all good even the headphone ang mic jack are running. I searched the forums for the ethernet kext file but it seems like there's no such kext file for Darwin 10.2 kernel. Till I found a post, the post is using another kernel, but I tried the procedures for that kernel and it works! I now have an internet connection. Procedures are editing ng IONetworkingFamily.kext/Contents/PlugIns/MarvellYukon2.kext/Info.list, then reinstall the IONetworkingFamily.kext file using Kext Utility and viola! after rebooting the laptop, It found the ethernet card with Marvell Yukon 88E8055! One more kext file to go! For the Nvidia 8400M GT!
  7. 3 more drivers for Mac OSX Snow Leopard

    I did a few search in my reference and found out that the OSX I've installed has the "KEXT UTILITY". It did the same procedures as mentioned on the links. But still I cannot connect to the internet.
  8. 3 more drivers for Mac OSX Snow Leopard

    Hi Roman, Thanks for your reply. I've downloaded those kexts and follow the procedures on how to install this kext files using this link:How to install .KEXT file on OSX86. but still, I cannot see my hardware on the system preference on my OSX, in fact, there's no hardware at all. I know this may sound stupid, but is the procedures on how to install this kext files correct? If not, can you give me a link on how to properly install the kext files? Thanks in advance!

Audio: Realtek Sigmatel ALC262 - no sound at all 3. Ethernet: Marvell Yukon 88E8055 - no connection at all / doesnt appear that I have a hardware 4. Wifi: Intel Wifi Link 4965AGN - same as the ethernet my laptop is currently setup for triple boot. Windows 7 / Mac OSX / and Ubuntu 10.4. I'm almost having the best of all OS worlds, but I'm having a trouble for the drivers on Mac OSX. I've already spent a week in looking for this drivers, but to no avail. Can't find the right driver for them. Can anyone please help me to find these drivers to make my MAC OSX up and running? Thanks.
