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

9 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts



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


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.
