Dell E310 & GeForce fx 5200 dual screen

I have been working and searching for over 2 weeks now to try and get my hackintosh into a fully functional state..


I have iAtkos v1.0i, GeForce fx 5200 (dual VGA), etc... The install finally went through after about 79 tries, but for the life of me I can not my other monitor to wake up! The closest I came was by editing NVinject.kext and by chance got bothe displays on, but they were mirrored and there was no way to set it to extend instead.


I tried editing GeForce.kext, NVDAN30.kext, NVDAResman.kext adding my device ID (0x032210de&0x0000ffff), which left me withan un-bootable system (display: family specific matching fails).


Has anyone managed to get their fx 5200 utilizing both monitors with iAtkos 10.5.1?


I have tried just about every solution I could find (NVinject, uni, Natit, Titan, et al to no avail...


If anyone could lend a hand/offer some advice I would GREATLY appreciate it. I've already spent an awful amount of time trying to get it working, and am afraid I am looking at unemloyment soon if I can't start getting somework done.


Best regards,

Look here for some advice



Post number 80.Complete guide to hacking the NVIDIA drivers as far as I can take them.


If you get a kernel panic on reboot and it seems to be NVDAResman, It's probably GeForce.kext.Remove it temporarily.


It sounds to me like you have an NVCAP issue. Krazubu has an excellent guide on NVCAP here http://forum.insanelymac.com/index.php?sho...mp;#entry737519


I would start with NVCAP because that is where most monitor detection issues stem from.


Also note, that as far as I know Mac has some difficulty with dual VGA outputs or VGA/DVI mixed outputs.Still, I would focus on NVCAP for the time being.best of luck to you.




P.S. family specific matching failed usually means your card is not supported by the NVIDIA kexts as far as I know. You can use the method described in the first link to substitute your card's ID to the NVIDIA kexts and make the family specific {censored} go away.


Also, delete all other card ID's and and masks from the IOPCIMatch or IOPCIPrimaryMatch sections and insert only your single card ID there. <string>0x032210de</string> for example. Do this for all three kexts you mention.
