EFI GFX String for 8800 GTS 320MB (G80) on Gigabyte 965p-DS3 rev3

Since I had searched a long time to get gfx string for my 8800 GTS 320MB (G80), I thought I post it here maybe it can be useful at some point for others.


My Hackintosh:

Gigabte 965p-DS3 rev3.0. Nvidia 8800GTS 320MB (G80). Intel Core 2 Duo. 4GB RAM.


I installed my Leopard using the retail DVD following the instructions explained in this post and this one.


I did not install any injector (neither NVinject nor ACLinject).

I followed the instruction to create gfx string. You can find a good one here (posted by eclau).


If you download my attachment you will see 4 files inside the zip file.

You should be able to just copy the com.apple.Boot.plist to your /Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/ folder, PROVIDED that your system's basic configuration is exactly like mine.

If this method doesn't work and you want to follow the Eclau's instructions to create your individual graphics/network/sound strings, then you can start by 8800gs.hex or 8800gs.plist and just modify the sections that you'd lilke to. (Of course you have to follow what Eclau is telling you to do!)

8800gs.hex is my system's hex code that I pasted in com.apple.Boot.plist file.

Note that using this method I am getting one step closer to real vanilla system because I am not modifying IONetworkingFamily extension.

Actually the only two things I have modified are: dsmos and smbios ;)


Note that if your network happened not to work after this, first try to enable LAN Boot ROM in your motherboard's BIOS, check this link.
