Does anyone know how to make thesystem FIND the NVIDIA card (double GPU OPTIMUS, intel HD3000/NVidia gt540m) ?

 

I'm trying to make the system work with the nvidia gpu instead of the intel. It has 1gb vram after all and I see the system a litle slow with the intel Hd300 (1366x768)

 

It seems the problem is that it can't read the PCI bus right.

 

Under SL (iatkos s3 or maibe [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] method) the system could see the card,

in the specs it appeared under graphics/monitor as an NVIDIA "monitor" along with the intel gpu, but now in LION (L1/L2) it does not.

 

and in the PCI specs no card is detected at all.

 

I'm currently running iAtkos L2, but same thing happened with iAtkos L1, and 10.7.2 combo update applied.

 

I've made several attempts modifing the nvidia kexts with the device id of my card and erasing all other graphic kexts, but the system starts up just with vga mode and no nvidia kext loaded.

 

also installed latest nvidia drivers from tonymac..

 

Any hints apreciated

Hello if you didn't have fixed your problem, here goes a hint, first fix your intel card, its easy, and use the tonymac chameleon bootloader version 1.7.0 it's name is chimera, and see if your system boot up correctly with the intel card with native resolution and full qe/ci and when you have this working on, wh can start talking about nvidia.

Ok sorry, I'm not explaining myself correctly..

 

My intel HD3000 works fine with native 1366x768 full QE/CI.

 

For now I'm trying to get the nvidia card detected at least, Ioregistry doesn't have a clue of it :|

 

Any suggestions?

 

Thanks

Ok reinstalled Chimera 1.7 and (after a many attempts..) I saw NVIDIA card detected in the system specs, as a monitor.

 

But now it doesn't anymore.

 

I was forced to boot with the cpus=1 flag on boot and also -f

 

then I just added the cpus flag to the bootloader and it starts fine but doesn't detect the card anymore. :hammer:

      Ciao a tutti,
      sono felicemente riuscito a installare Lion sul mio Optiplex 330.
      Funziona tutto tranne la scheda audio interna ma non importa perché vorrei installare una USB esterna: una Yamaha AG03.
      Dalle istruzioni questa dovrebbe essere installata su Lion senza driver e riconosciuta subito (http://www.yamahaproaudio.com/global/en/products/mixers/ag/manual/mac/index_en.jsp).
      Su un altro hackintosh sempre con Lion viene riconoscita perfettamente.
      Il sistema la vede, nel System Report, correttamente collegata all'USB ma da Audio Midi Setup mi dice "NO DEVICES FOUND".
      Temo che mi manchi qualche parte software per far riconoscere la scheda esterna.
      Ho installato i VoodooHDA ma mi hanno mandato in crash il sistema quindi li ho rimossi.
      Avete consigli?
      Grazie mille

      Hello everyone,
       
      I'm new to this forum, I'm really searching for some help with my "project" and hope some of you can help me out with this one!
       
      It's all coming down to a not starting "Finder"
       
       
      The full story,
       
      I bought a Mac Pro 1.1 (2006) a few day's ago. All stock, dual Intel Xeon 3Ghz, 5GB Ram and the stock video card (256MB). (Lion freshley installed)
       
      I wanted to upgrade to OSX El Capitain, and after a lot of research and a lot... yes a lot of trouble in making it all work I finally got it. I've thrown in a Geforce GTX 760 2GB Jetstream... couldn't wait to get cables for powering it, so I frankensteind it all with a second PSU. Installed Lion on a Samsung 850 EVO, and then followd a tutorial on how to install el capitain using Piker's boot. 
       
      After 12 hours non stop messin around it worked, only after some time the mac froze and rebooted. I noticed that maby Google Chrome caused this to happen, and when using Safari it would work without any problem. I even can play 4K flawless.
      But still after some time it would crash, I monitored the CPU and Ram Usage, but there wasn't anything crazy happening at those things.
       
      .. didn't really got the time to instal other apps. Then I found out Finder wasn't responding. It kept on crashing. I tried a lot of things... deleting the plist files, resetting PRAM, VRAM, Savebooting, deleting cache, Disk repair (Disk Aid)... nothing worked.
       
      Is this maby a problem with the bootloader (Pike)?
       
      I hope someone can help me out!
       
      Thanks in advance,
      Greetings from Holland

      I'm trying to install Mac OS X Lion onto a kinda old PC, the specs are:
      AMD Athlon X2 4450e NVIDIA GeForce 6150SE 3GB RAM I've successfully installed Snow Leopard on it, and then I tried OS X Lion which gives me "[ PCI configuration begin ]" and then it will give me "console 1024 x 768 @0xe0000000" if I add pci=off, I've tried Yosemite and Mavericks (and they give me the same results) but I'm trying to stay away from them as they probably don't support my graphics card, and weirdly, I've tried Mountain Lion which boots into the installer no problem but it doesn't show my hard drive, so i tried to install it onto a flash drive (which takes ages!) but then at the last moment it tells me that it was unsuccessful, so I try to boot into Mountain Lion and I get the same errors (except I haven't tried pci=off, but I really don't want to try again unless it's really needed.)
       
      Is there anything I can do or am I just stuck with Snow Leopard?

      I recently received an HP Pavilion A6400f with the ASUS IPIBL-LB mobo.  My brother keeps telling me to get a Mac so I thought I'd try to make a hackintosh using OSx Lion since both are from the same era. So far, all I've found are tutorials that all say "first get such and such from a previous install of OSx". If I had a previous install or access to a Mac I wouldn't need to try making a hackintosh. So, any suggestions or guidance? Hopefully, once I get OSx on, I'll be able to install Linux Mint and multiboot.
