Quadro FX3800 & Quadro FX1500

Hey guys,


I have three XW8400 running avid media composer well in Lion 10.7.4.


The only thing lacking is Quartz Extreme. I have to boot in "arch=i386" because of the nVidia conflict and of course laggy video.


I've searched the net for two hours and looked over many posts. Looks like the only viable option to get Q/E on these machines in EFI String from an 8800.


I assume I'd disable Graphics Enabled = yes in org.chameleon.Boot.plist.


Does this seem like the proper solution?


Anyone have a success story with either of these cards in Lion?


Thanks much,
