GT650m not working in normal boot (10.8.4)

Recommended Posts



i'm trying out a new AIO computer, this one has a GT650m.


i can install and run ML 10.8.4 in safe mode, when i boot in normal mode it never seems to get to the desktop. it doesnt crash, i still see the odd console message from os x.


i'm guessing this is the gfx driver not kicking in, but i'm not sure what it expects, i heard 650m worked out the box.


i'm running latest chameleon, graphics enabler=no (=yes doesnt fix it)


i have attached my unlatched DSDT taken from windows, and also my ioreg taken from safe mode boot.


i'm used to dealing with the intel gfx, nvidia is a new one on me.


could anyone perhaps point me the right way? i'm good for making DSDT edits and editing plists etc.

okay, so once again something i thought was known to work actually seems to be a source of grief for some people.


so maybe i'll ask a different question.


what is the driver that enabled graphics acceleration for kepler  cards?


reason i ask is that in safe mode the frame buffer loads fine, the card is detected with the correct ram and at the right resolution. i can boot the installer in safe mode no problem.


NVDAGK100Hal and NVDAResman are loaded.


i'm wondering if perhaps graphics is not the problem stopping my system loading in normal mode....

Please write some lines about your getting up your GT650m. Some others here are fighting to get M Kepler cards working.


Congrats to your  :happymac:


Thanks in advance.

the only steps need to enable gfx was GraphicsEnabler=No. to boot in normal mode (not safe mode) i had to add dart=0 otherwise it would freeze.ML10.8.4
