GTS 250 on Lion DP4

Recommended Posts

hi,

 

I just installed MAC OS X Lion DP4 on my hackintosh and all work fine ! with one exception ... my graphic card.

 

My GTS 250 is simply not recognized by the system (I just have a resolution of 1024x768 and impossible to change), I use Chameleon 2 RC5-r1000 to boot the system and i've tried to activate GraphicEnabler into the apple.com.boot.plist but it block the startup (just a white/black screen) I also tried the nvenabler.kext without result ( in the E/E folder or S/L/E folder ) also try the GTS 250.kext no more results

 

I would then know if anyone knows how to run my GTS 250 512 MB (with QE/CI) in Lion DP 4 ?

 

Or is it due to the fact that this is a Developers Preview or Chameleon, which is not yet ready for Lion?

 

thank you to those who may take some time to try to help me. ( and sorry for my bad english )

@javimdq Which version of Chameleon did you use ?

 

graphicsenabler=yes doesn't work for me - black/white screen !

(whereas under snow leopard this parameter works great)

I used RC5 r982. Also output is DVI, my card has two dual DVI only.

 

I tried with chameleon rc5-r982 with graphicsenabler=yes but it doesn't work I get a weird screen at startup

Hi! I'm getting the same problem since dp2. See link above.

 

I think this has something to do with our motherboards ( i have a p5ld2-vm ) because no one with our cards is having this kind of problem.

 

Is your system overclocked? Mine is, so maybe we can address the problem by removing hypothesis.

I have found a solution. Just swap the kexts AppleACPIPlatform.kext and IOPCIFamily.kext from the Snow Leopard (10.6.7) and the desktop just loads fine.

 

 

I think we're gonna have to upgrade our motherboard, since it looks like they're removing support to our chipsets.

 

Bye!
