Nvidia 8200m on Snow Leopard

2 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello, i have been trying to get the integrated graphics card to work for 6 days, i literally tried almost every option available, no results, this GPU is really awesome on windows if you consider that it takes no Case Space (better airflow), produces no noise, consumes very little power, is literally silent and can output 1080p movies without problems.

 

Normally i would spend that money for some used old nvidia gpu to get Qe/Ci running, however i prefer to have my integrated graphics card (ECS GF8200A) working for me and everybody else !

I managed to make it work by editting ihazard (10.6.2) stock nvdanvhal50.kext to match my PCI device (0x084910de) and EFI String but it was laggish and the mouse was acting weird, however i could change resolution and calibrate my monitor.

 

Very close to the solution by myself!!

    • Hi,Bergui.  I am certainly happy you finally solved your problem  but I am confused.  What you did is what you were supposed to do to do to begin with.  What were you doing before? You mean you were creating your USB with something else than a Mac? 
    • Is there a simple guide somewhere that explains what to do to to help out testing your ssdt's? I got clover configurator, ioregexplorer and some basic knowledge but it's hard to find out where to start.  Also... if I was about to apply an ssdt... is it easily reversible or do I have do an reinstall every time I screw up?   Edit: Admire your work by the way. I've been google'n this for years. Hat's off! 
    •   Hi Maldon, great guide! I got my old Dell 780 (LGA775) running High Sierra 10.13.4 nicely, thank you!   I have no audio and I see where you mention "Device HDEF + AppleALC + Lilu". I have AppleALC + Lilu in my KEXT folder but not sure what "Device HDEF" is. 
      Also when it goes to sleep it takes like 2 minutes to wake. I have a Q9400 quad core + Nvidia Quadro FX580 but don't have a DSDT for it. Can you help me with a DSDT?   Here are my RunMe Results https://drive.google.com/file/d/1Duv3XYyW4UhziDVVWdquwxYcGQ-D5tvm/view?usp=sharing   SPECS: Dell 780 MT, Q9400 2.66GHz Core2Quad Core, Nvidia Quadro FX580 
    • I've tried these several methods of booting into clover, but it still skips. I even double checked that i was using your Clover folder. Bios settings should be the same too... this is getting really strange here.
