HELP needed! (iPC OS X 10.5.6 PFF5 )

Hi,

 

I installed 10.5.6 into my Hitachi sata hdd, partitioned it as GUID.

Installation was a success. Did a little research in google, and got my internet and audio working.

 

Now, the only problem is my videocard (Nvidia 6150se). The strange thing is that I don't know if my vram is 256mb (like os x tells me) or 512mb (like windows 7 dxdiag tells me) or 499mb like GTA 4 tells me (btw my FPS was 1 with gta 4 :unsure: ).

 

So what kind of kext should I use or should I just give up on this. It is really a pain in the ass, because when browsing webpages, they get stuck (strange, but this website doesn't) and so do windows when I drag them. :/

 

My stuff:

emachines motherboard

nvidia 6150se @ nfoce 430 mcp61 (windows and the content inside them lags and gets stuck)

realtek alc888/1200 (all working) @ nfoce 430 mcp61

nforce enthernet @ nfoce 430 mcp61 (all working)

usb mount working,

logitech mx3200 (just keyboard) and microsoft optical notebook mouse 3000 working.

 

Hope to recive a reply and

Thank you in advance,

Henri

 

EDIT1: When I try to install some video kexts, then upon reboot I don't get a kernel panic, it just gets stuck booting. Last time I check with -v that what is the problem. The last thing there was was: Network link down or something like that aka something about networking although with 1 driver I can get internet working successfully.

 

EDIT2: I read some topics and was wondering if a snow leopard 10.6.4 installation would work better with my system. Atm have Leopard 10.5.6 iPC PFF5.

The 6150SE is an integrated graphics chipset on the MOBO that is sharing your MOBO RAM.......it is not supported by OS X for CI and QE............in fact, AFAIK no Nvidia integrated GPU below 9x00m works on OSX........that is why installing any video kexts will prevent you booting.........

Thank you for you answer. :P

Well, have to live with that window lag and also alot of programs scrolling lag (the content gets stuck there and when I scroll, some content changes, the rest is the same.)

 

Bad news for me is that my pc is a mini desktop emachines el1300 wich doesn't support any expanding other than changing my 2x1gb ram and some stuff to better one :D, but not video adapters or other devices.

In BIOS is the shared RAM selectable...........usually 32/64/128/256 MB?

Hi.

 

No, just checked. Can't select any of that. :/

Shame.........not a lot you can do with your PC as regards OSx86

Ok.

So I installed Chameleon bootloader 2 rc4.

Now, when I click on Hardware in System Profiler, I can see some info (didn't see anything earlier):

Also, I tried to add an efi string for my video card:

Nothing happened or changed after reboot.

 

Here is my graphic card info: (Note that my card does not support Quartz Extreme but supports QuartzGL. :S)

Hope this info is useful in some way.

EDIT1: Also if I tried to add a device such as nvidia geforce 6150 256mb with EFIStudio, I couldn't boot up upon reboot (no kernel panics, it just got stuck).

With UIinstaller, nothing changes upon reboot.

 

EDIT2:

1)This is the window I get when moving it around:

No. The links go to the picture page.

Why, they don't open?

 

EDIT:

 

My bad. :D

2 of the links didn't work, the rest is ok.

Problem actually solved.

I just bought a cheap desktop pc without video card, hdd, os. Now have geforce nvidia gtx 465 and 1tb hdd sata. The os x 1.6 works perfectly with dualboot windows 7.

 

Curse those integrated cheap video cards. :)
