ERROR: unable to open nVidia video BIOS file /Extra/10de_0614.rom

System:

Gainward 9800GT GS GLH 512

ASUS PG541T-M LX

Intel Pentium DualCore e5200 @ 2.89GHZ

iAtkos L2 1.7.4

 

 

Hi, I get this error on booting: ERROR: unable to open nVidia video BIOS file /Extra/10de_0614.rom

After that the Apple Logo appears, then the screen turns black and a lot of stuff is standing there.

Then it says that i have to shut down my system and reboot it.

 

I edited AppleGraphicsPowerManagement.kext for my needs and changed

 

<key>Vendor10deDevice06c0</key>

 

to

 

<key>Vendor10deDevice0614</key>

 

then changed Device ID to MacPro5,1 (My PC was MacPro3,1 before)

 

 

What can I do ?

Check your org.chameleon.Boot.plist for "use nVidia rom" or vbios, or whatever it says exactly, should be pretty obvious though. Remove it.

 

If you need to get into system to do this, use -x boot flag and hopefully that will get you to the desktop, you can also boot single user mode - s and edit the plist there using vim, but I'm not gonna type all that.

Ok thanks, will try this later.

 

But if I remove this, will my changes in AppleGraphicsPowerManagement.kext work ?

I changed some lines, because my CPU and GPU Fan kept spinning like crazy.

when you changed to MacPro 5,1, did you remove AppleTyMCEDriver.kext? ...the kext causes problems for some using MacPro 4,1 and 5,1(drag the kext to your desktop as a backup and move original to the trash...then reboot with -v -f ...then you can see details of the boot process :wink2:

Changing org.chameleon.Boot.plist as I stated will not effect AGPM. The flag I'm talking about is for having Chameleon load a different vbios rom for your GPU which unless you downloaded or dumped one, will not work. When that option is enabled, chameleon will look for your patched vbios file in /Extra and it has to be named venid_devicid.rom. Chameleon's current settings are looking for this file, again if you don't have it, disable that boot flag. Has nothing to do with AGPM working or not

Now. My Graphic Card and CPU Fans are spinnig like crazy again.

It seems that after deleting the file, mac is ignoring my changes..is it so ?

Why are you using MacPro 5,1, any reason other than AGPM that's not working anyway? You system would be better suited to using 3,1 but maybe knowing what the problem was your trying to fix, if it worked normal before and if so what triggered it to occur now (i.e. software update), could offer you a more practical solution.
