[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.
