Dell OptiPlex 980 i5 - ML 10.8.2

Recommended Posts

HiAnyone has much success installing 10.8.2 on an OptiPlex i5 980 ? I know i will need an additional GFX card as the on board one is not supported. I bought a low profile silent nVidea GT 620 as i was led to believe this was supported OOTB but it seems i was wrong.I am trying a myHack retail method and it gets stuck at the point where it seems the onboard NIC is initialised.

 

Any ideas?

 

thanks

from the USB installer? As of right now i dont have an OS on this box.

 

As an aside what would be an OOTB working low profile GFX card for ML? In my other hack i have a silent 9600 GT and this has been perfect for 10.6, 10.7 and now 10.8 but i need something smaller for the optiplex?

 

thanks

    • Monitor EDID often contains OEM string in Details Timing section.

    • "copy to clip board" - "скопировать" "log copied to clip board!" - "журнал скопированного"   First one is better.   Good! I think to reduce EDID as talking above. 
    • And my config.plist I will also try iMacPro1.1 SMBIOS on my build. This may help clarify something
