GTX 660 (non-Ti) - can't boot installer

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I made a 10.8.2 install USB stick

It won't boot with a GTX 660 Non-Ti GPU, it gets stuck after loading the lnx2mac ethernet kext.

I don't have a builtin GPU or another dedicated GPU, but I do have 10.6.8 working decently atm, if it helps.

 

How can I boot the installer with my GTX 660 GPU?

 

Thank you.

Shouldn't matter because it worked with the gtx 260 that I sold, but here it is:

 

i5 661

H55M-D2H

8 gb ram (currently 4 gb installed)

PNY GTX 660 2gb

I was finally able to boot with the radeon gpu.

I used: -v -x PCIRootUID=0 npci=0x3000

 

I then installed nvidia driver for gtx 660, restarted, OS X boots with the 660 with correct resolution but both mouse and keyboard don't work (both are USB).

 

Tried USBBusFix=Yes to no avail.

I can't use the mouse and keyboard, how could I install anything?

 

Anyway I erased the partition and retrying the whole thing differently.
