Second videocard using Natit on mac pro

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hey,

 

I have a spare pci-e x600 pro videocard (PC Version) and I was thinking to add it to my system (Mac Pro). My system has already a X1900 XT as primary videocard. I installed Natit, and it detects the x600 but the display doesn't get signal from the VGA port. Both displays on the x1900 XT work perfectly.

 

 

Output from System Profiler: Graphics/Displays

 

ATI Radeon X600 Series:

I have two X1800 GTO's and was wondering this same thing. I think I'm using Natit.kext 1.0, but I will check again when I get home soon. I can also provide an ioreg -l if needed. I'm running an ATI Crossfire 3200 motherboard as well. Also, dual screen, rotation, QE/CI, Resolution changing all work beautifully. I have three monitors as well: 1 Dell 1905FP 19" flat panel and 2 NEC FE1250+.

    • 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.
