Been a while since me and a pal managed to turn a couple of dell mini 9s into leopard netbooks and then kill them with 10.5.8 and thus it's so good to see there is still a thriving community here ... hoping you can help me
Does anyone know if your group's nvidia webdriver updater will successfully flash the ROM in the non-approved (by Apple!) 8800 GTS (the GT was approved, but not the GTS) - so it will work in a mac pro 3,1 with El Capitan ? (by 'work' I mean 100% fully work - not just login screen but all boot screen options)
May seem an odd thing to do but amongst my other projects keeping this behemoth (3,1 intel xeon 8 core 8GB RAM 2008/9) mac pro with bootcamp running as something more than just a home NAS (4x4TB drives in the bays) and file server is high up my list and I am never going to be able to stump up the cash for an apple $$$ approved card
Things I think I know, but suspect some folk here will have found a way around or know better;
1) without flashing, I will never get the options at boot, or be able to see SUDO or recovery options
2) I can use screen sharing / VNC viewer / Vine to remote into the mac at the login screen, and use startup disk prefs to switch between bootcamp and OSX, but not OSX DVDs on an external DVD over USB
3) I have been pointed at netkas but they seem to be down currently ... and when last up appear to be focused on flashing just the high end newer PC gaming cards (1GB VRAM and up) - this 8800 GTS is just a 320mb)
Any info will be much appreciated, hate binning kit like this ....

Since I updated to Mountain Lion I've been noticing quite a few issues with my GTS 450 graphics card. The computer doesn't sleep, but after waking from display sleep, I either have bizarre tearing issues or a blank grey screen with a mouse pointer and nothing else (in which case I have to reset the computer). The tearing seems to be more common; it primarily seems to affect Safari or the desktop picture. Restarting Safari or logging out fixes it. The old random freeze bug also seems to be back, and I'm experiencing the blue screen on resolution switch that some other people have mentioned. I switched to the DP3 rollback graphics kexts, but that doesn't seem to have changed anything (although everything seems generally faster with them; faster than Lion, definitely). I'm using Chameleon's Graphics Enabler.
Hi, I've been using this card for a long time with VGA and no problem has ever occurred. My preferred method to get this card working is GE=yes but i've tried dsdt patch and it works fine as well.
I recently bought a new Monitor with HDMI port and i am trying to make it work in OSX. GE=yes and dsdt patch only gives me VGA, when using HDMI it gives me black screen after apple logo. I did some google search but found no solution. I will be grateful if someone could help me out with this.
I am using Zotac gts250 on lion 10.7.3.
Thanks a lot in advance and please pardon my bad English.
