[Solved] GTX 560Ti & Mountain Lion

Recommended Posts

Hello!

 

I've been racking my brain trying to get my 560Ti card working in Mountain Lion. Some people seem to have it working OOB, but no such luck here. I've tried all the boot flags applicable to video issues, no luck. Can't seem to find any kexts for it either! So I can't get native resolution, or any kind of acceleration. If I load anything with any kind of graphic movement (the scrolling bar in Safari for example) it immediately crashes the system (with no error). It just freezes the screen until I force a restart by holding the power button.

 

Can anyone help me figure out how to possibly edit the working kexts for Lion, to work in Mountain Lion? Or maybe show me what I need to do to come to a solution that might work? Thank you!

Just an update.. Another thing I have tried, is putting all the kexts related to NVIDIA stuff from Lion, into S/L/E of Mountain Lion. Doesn't seem to do anything at all. Didn't really expect it to, just an update on something else I tried in case anyone has any ideas :)

Try removing the following Options from your org.chameleon.Boot.plist

They was causing this problem here:

 

boot option: EnableC2State=Yes

boot option: EnableC3State=Yes

boot option: EnableC4State=Yes

 

 

This is how my bootloader config looks like:

 

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

<!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd">

Going to try this and report back shortly! Fingers crossed!

 

Edit: Hmm... The lines -

"

boot option: EnableC2State=Yes

 

boot option: EnableC3State=Yes

 

boot option: EnableC4State=Yes

"

 

 

don't exist for me to delete.

 

Sadly, didn't work for me! However my card now shows as what it is, an NVIDIA GTX 560Ti with 2048mb, until this point it was showing as nothing and just "3mb"... Closer I guess, but hopefully can get the rest of the way!

Fixed!! I used the kexts for DP3 from http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=280837&view=findpost&p=1837150 installed them using kext wizard, rebooted, and my problem is gone! Apparently the NVIDIA support has been messed up from DP4 on. So reverting back to DP3 kexts works great. I have full graphics support, acceleration is working, everything is perfect.

 

Hopefully it works for you guys having the same issue as well!

I wasn't having that issue I'm afraid :worried_anim: All my troubles began after installing. What method of install are you using? Maybe we can get it figured out :)

using the DP3 kexts are you able to use dual monitors? My build at the moment is lacking dual monitor support. Im running a Z77 ud5h i7 3770k and gtx 5610ti with kexts from ######. I used PCIRootUID=0 and everything else standard.

When I get home I'll check what Kexts I'm using. With my 560Ti's, dual monitors work beautifully.

      Hi, i recently set up High Sierra on my AMD computer with the help of the amdosx community (i actually used an installer just to confirm that something would work in the first place before i spend hours for nothing, i can and could have downloaded High Sierra the "legal" way).
      However the graphicscard is recognized properly, the 6gig are recognized and i have no artifacts and no screen tearing with the official nvidia webdriver,
      but unfortunally, dark colors have horizontal dark stripes in them and specific bright colors like on left bar of system windows such as settings do flicker like low fps.

      I only used the clover on the flash drive for now and i'd like if it's worth digging deeper of if i should just forget about it as it is a common nvidia problem on macOS.
      Would be amazing to know.
       
      Closer machine infos:
      * High Sierra (misses a recent minor patch as my network is veeeery slow and i got this nvidia issue anyway so i mainly jumped back to linux)
      * AMD fx8350
      * Asus Sabertooth 990fx Ref. 2.0
      * NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 6GB

      I recently set up my hackintosh. Everything else works fine, the only issue is my monitor cannot come back from sleep.
      Symptom: 
      If I click the "sleep" menu manually, the system goes to sleep fine. After the system sleeps for a while (more than a few mins, I guess it's called "deep sleep"), when I try to wake it up, the monitor wakes up but stays black screen. The machine is on. If I leave the system to time out and sleep by itself, only the monitor goes off; when I try to wake it up, same symptom as above.
      What I have tried (but none worked):
      additional boot flag: ngfxpatch=pikera additional boot flag: darkwake = 0 Customize EDID
      Specs:
      Motherboard: Gigabyte Z77x-UD5H BIOS: F16j CPU: Ivy Bridge i5-3570K CPU @ 3.40GHz (quad core) Graphics: Nvidia GTX 1050 Monitor: Dell P2715Q @ 4k / 60Hz, Display Port Wifi / Bluetooth: BCM94360CS with PCIE Onboard GPU: disabled OS: High Sierra 10.13.3

      I am looking forward to your suggestions. Thanks.

      When I installed 10.13.4 I tried to boot macOS with iGPU enabled only in BIOS (without injecting and kexts, HD 4600) and my daily use dGPU (GTX 750 Ti, injected in config and web drivers enabled) and everything works fine, but it boots slower. There is a chance to make fully working dGPU and iGPU at one time? With kexts, injects, et cetera? Something like dGPU as eGPU and iGPU as main GPU? I don't want to break my build, so I am asking you before trying it.
      My computer:
      MOBO: Gigabyte P85-D3
      GPU: Gigabyte GTX 750 Ti Windforce (2GB VRAM)
      CPU: i5-4670
      RAM: 8GB DDR3 1600MHz
      Audio: ALC887
      Ethernet: Realtek RTL 8111
      Drives: SSD Goodram 240GB and HDD 1TB.

      Could you please help me enable the VGA port on the GT710 in 10.9.5 13F34 ? 
      It is currently booting fine through its HDMI port, web driver 334.0103f01 and config.plist arguments checked: Verbose (-v), npci=0x2000, dart=0, nvda_drv=1
      The nvidia GT710 works fine through its VGA port and web drivers on a friend's Mac Pro 3,1
      I must soon return this borrowed HDMI monitor, mine only has a VGA port so I'd appreciate your input.

      Hi, not so much ago i got a geforce 9800 gx2 and i was wondering how do i get it to work on sierra/high sierra? i have tryied a lot of things but nothing worked, i always got a black screen, the only way to get it to boot is by using -nv_disable=1 which will boot the system of course without video acceleration but with one of the 2 gpus detected and the other not. since i am going to use this card for my 2008 dream hackintosh build, with sierra, how do i make it to work?
       
      Thanks for your answers
