How do I add a PCI-E NVidia? Kext first? or Card first?

Recommended Posts

Hello folks


I've successfully installed ML on Asus P5G41T-M LX V2 using Niresh disc.


I now want to fit my Geforce GT610 PCI-E card to replace the onboard graphics but I don't want to get it wronge - Do I install the kext before installing the card? or fit the card first?

You should be able to boot with -x (safe mode) with the card installed, then modify the nvidia drivers if needed. You should not have to install anything.


I'm not sure if setting GraphicsEnabler=n is necessary with a GT 610.

I tried -x safe mode but I'm just a  learning so I used a ready edited kext for my card and installed it with KextWizard and repaired and rebooted but it hangs after the card is registered then will not go back into safe mode! - so, after a few image restores! I noticed the Kext plist was missing the 'a' in the pci id and then I found an edited kext on this website which does have the right pci id so I installed that using [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] and now it still hangs in full mode? - but the good news, I can still get into safe mode. I'll do a screen shot of the hang if anyone has any ideas then please let me know.
