  1. Nvidia GT220

    Hi, I have recently created my first Hackintosh running off a Dell inspiron 545. I've got it running Snow Leopard 10.6.3 from iatkos. Everything works brilliantly now after adding in kexts and etc, however the graphics card doesnt seem to be running quartz extreme and etc. I've looked online and it says it supports it. I've all ready tried NVenabler and some similar ones. Any idea on how to get it enabled ? Thanks, Ajw901
  2. Dell Inspiron 545

    Hi, Me once again! A little further progress now however still struggling!!!!! I've got the installer to see the HDD and it's installed on the drive, however booting on to the drive is the hard part. I Boot into Darwin off the USB i then enter " -v -x npci=0x3000 pci=off GraphicsEnabler=No" then it starts to boots and then shows me this - https://mail-attachment.googleusercontent.com/attachment/?ui=2&ik=f7b9c62ce0&view=att&th=1381a2759911d9e7&attid=0.1&disp=inline&safe=1&zw&saduie=AG9B_P_VX77Q_ZSr_ZcBtPU5HDOg&sadet=1340468684057&sads=9bc7k9kcIbrPePZVeWiVM1QnYtQ&sadssc=1 "Boot-UUID-Media" then will go into a "Waiting for Root Device" loop. Any Ideas ? Ajw901
  3. Dell Inspiron 545

    Thanks for the info! I've got lion on a bootbale usb which i created from MyHack - i can boot into the lion installer by doing this command " -v -x npci=0x3000 pci=off GraphicsEnabler=No" Only problem is.... it can't find my SATA hard drive. i've looked online and it says switch to AHCI mode however i can only switch to IDE or RAID. Is there a way of getting past this ? Thanks Ajw901
