XFX Nvidia 8600GTS 256Mb

I'm running iATKOS v1.0i r2 on my PC but I can't make my card to work on OSX. I run the NVInstaller v.33

and select Final 10.5.2 NVidia kexts and NVinject Vanilla (256 Mb) and when I reboot, I got a Panic message.


Do any of you know if I need to do something else? Or any of you made this card to work? please help me...


Thanks for everything,

I have the same software setup as you and the same GFX card!


I managed to get pasted the kernal panic by booting into safe mode (-v -x)


and then manually changing the .kext files:

the fix for nForce Motherboards, no matter if they are for intel or AMD is that the kext needs to set rid of the trailing part, those "&0xfff0ffff", because they causing conflicts with other Nvidia components of the board, but I don't know if is easy to deply because you need to know every DeviceId of geforce cards.


an example:


if NVDAResman has:


<string>0x011010de&0xfff8ffff 0x017010de&0xfff8ffff 0x017910de 0x018010de&0xfff8ffff</string>


it should be like this


<string>0x011710de 0x017110de 0x017910de 0x018610de</string>


Users who know the specific DevIDs can put the DeviceID that they are using:




that is my DeviceID of my 6600 on my nForce 4 Ultra MoBo BTW.


For any more support check out this post:




Hope this helps you!
