when attempting install 10.10 to my old PC, it reboots everytime when attached pic shows up. my hardware is:
mb - unika p35 (with ich9) 775pin
cpu - intel xeon x3210
video card - nv geforce 8600gt
could anybody know what was wrong? or is it possibly because of the video card, or the powermanagement?
Clover limits the number of gpus to 4 :
from Clover source code : rEFIt_UEFI/Platform/Settings.c :
GFX_PROPERTIES gGraphics; //no more then 4 graphics cards
Anybody knows why?
This number is limiting for me :
- 1x gpu is AMD display GPU
- 1x gpu is Supermicro's built-in vga IKVM output (Matrox 0x532102B)
- 3x gpus Nvidia for Cuda
I At present, I have to take off one Nvidia (but I'm trying to disable the build-in vga IKVM output through software, so that it's available for other operating systems : I'll make another post on that topic, to keep things clean)
i have ended up getting high sierra installed on my intel DQ670w board. i used a premade high sierra/clover dmg i extracted to a usb flash drive. right now the audio, networking arnt working and the video card i have in the machine an nvidia geforce 1050 gtx ti it works but has very very very choppy/jittery video. i did find some kext files for the network and audio but when i put them in the extensions folder they didnt do anything to add audio or networking. also i have to get the machine to boot from the hard drive rather then having to boot the usb flash drive to get the hard drive to boot and i have to work on the video card stuff as well. i am not to good at this stuff cause usually when i have tried stuff i end up breaking stuff or that stuff doesnt work. i am not all that code or certain tech savy. i am not the brightest. i like things laid out where its all like this is the files and where you get them from this is how u work with them kind of thing. it does agravate me when people just wont lay out stuff as like a dummy book does and makes everything easy. i tried on facebook groups and got as far as to be told what kexts to find but never told where to find them. i did try to look on my own and i did find a few kexts but they where ones that needed alterations to the os to even make them usable. the video kext or driver i was told to install it and do something like change something to true. all i need are the kext files and to make the machine boot from the hard drive rather then complaining it doesnt have an os on the drive or having to use the usb flash drive to make it boot and the video files and to know how to deal with the files and make them work without having to start over with everything and reinstalling stuff
sorry if I post into a wrong forum, but I think this one is best I was able to find here.
so my problem :
After last big update on 22.12. my track pad is not working at all. I wasn't present when the update happened, but I was told that "everything worked fine, but after reboot, trackpad is not working at all". I tried to reset SMC, reset NVRAM, remove old OS and make a clean install, nothing helps. trackpad sometimes works at the startup like 10-20s, then if stops.
Data about the machine :
Current OS - High Sierra 10.13.2
Mac BookPro (Retina, 13 inch, mid 2014)
Model ID - MacBookPro11,1
Boot ROM - MBP111.0142.B00
SMC - 2.16f68
could you point me to some tool or some how to that would tell me if my HW is workig? how can I check, if my version of SMC or boot ROM is the correct one and is OK?
