Installed Lion on my Dell Optiplex 380 using [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] usb created from retail 10.7 dvd. Using PCIe Nvidia 7300GT 512mb but can only get it to work at 1024x768 without driver support. Tried [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] with no dsdt, as well as extracted and patched dsdt, and box still loads but without nvidia driver support. With graphicsenabler=yes no change. With EFI string or NVEnabler kext it almost loads, screen goes grey with mouse cursor but then a few seconds later goes black with a white cursor and seemingly retries in a loop, flickering.

 

It seems the EFI string and NVEnabler methods are working and finding the card but maybe the Lion nvidia drivers aren't hooking up right?

 

Thanks in Advance!
