Recommended Posts

Would an EVGA GeForce GTX 550 Ti SC work with hackintosh?

Any information would be great! :rolleyes:

 

Yeah it works with full resolution and QE/CI but sometimes the system freezes (under Lion, not tested with SL). The card have 1024MB but System Profiler shows 1536MB. I don't find a solution for that issue yet

Hi, my MSI 550 Ti card has the same RAM error as yours.

By the way can you get your HDMI video port working too ?

Mine got one DVI port working only besides the RAM error.

1. Boot with Chameleon v.1083 or newer, or Chimera 1.7.0

2. Update to Lion 10.7.2 (Build 11C73)

3. Set "GraphicsEnabler=Yes" then you can get at least one DVI port working with wrong RAM size

4. Install this patched Natit.kext in /S/L/E you can get two DVI or 1 DVI + 1 VGA ports working at the same time with correct RAM size shown as 1024 MB instead of 1536 MB.

In this Natit.kext I have edited NVCAP, "VRAM,totalsize", & model in its Info.plist.

However I can NOT get its HDMI port working up to now.

Still waiting for the solution for HDMI display and HDMI audio !

GTX 550 TI users of this file may find they can use only one DVI output as single monitor, to use DVI + VGA two monitors together, goto S/L/E/Natiit.kext/Content, open Infor.plist with plisteditor, edit NVCAP , change the 9th byte from 08 to 0C, then you will get the VGA output actived too.

I have a non-SC (factory-refurbished, in fact) GTX550Ti working just fine in OS X, Windows 8.1, and Server 2012R2 (I used to quad-boot, with both ML and the Mavericks DP of the month; however, since Mavericks went GM, I ejected ML and now merely triple-boot, not quad-boot).  Other than updating the Windows drivers, I needed to do nothing.  Mountain Lion and Mavericks both supported the GTX out of the box (complete with CI and QE); I'm simply waiting for proper Web/CUDA driver support for Mavericks GM, as there isn't any yet.
