NVEnabler::Probe fails (No DSMOS message)

8 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone.

 

I am trying to boot to my Mac but am getting an unusual issue with "NVEnabler::Probe fails" with absolutely no "DSMOS has arrived" message. I am unsure if it is to do with my GeForce 8400GS 512MB temporary graphics card (as my GTX 470 bust on me with lines down the screen last week) I am totally lost. I have tried the kexts for Mountain Lion 10.8.3 for this card but no luck at all. Since I am new to Mac OS X entirely, I have no idea how to get the logs. :L Help with this would be greatly appreciated as it is seriously annoying me and I'm about to pull my hair out with anger over it.. lol

 

Thanks.

 

EDIT: Unfortunately this is all I could get to show what happens.

for 8400 gs you need only " GraphicsEnabler = Yes " in your chameleon boot.plist 

 

 

<key>GraphicsEnabler</key>
<string>Yes</string>
 
this Graphic card is working OOB with Moutain Lion

i didn't know this was on an amd cpu.. now i would suggest you try using 10.7.x because neither nv or amd graphics are working correctly in 10.8.

OK, so how do I remove NVEnabler completely? Or would it be wise to completely wipe my disk and put 10.7 Lion on it? It has 10.8.0 or 10.8.3 I think?
