OSX boots but screen hangs on boot screen (10.6.8 GeForce GT430)

2 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

i had this system running fine with a GeForce 9500GT i have upgraded to a GeForce GT 430 (not a massive upgrade i know!)

boot ing in -s -x make no difference GraphicsEnabler=Yes or No makes no difference,

 

in -v boot it hangs at a message like checking or configuring PCI ports or devices

 

the system goes on to boot & loads the drivers for all my devices but the screen will stay showing those first 20 or so lines of the boot info (its very early in the boot that the screen hangs)

 

My Mobo is ASUS P5KPL-AM EPU

 

i can gain access to the OS by a 10.5.8 boot i have or by placing the old GFX card back in the PC

 

any tips or help MOST Welcome!

 

Thanks in Advance

UPDATE::

 

if i unplug the DVI port i see the desktop :) (its a start) (i also added Natit.kext to my extra/extentions folder)

 

if i plug the DVI port back in to my monitor then both screens turn off
