I don't know what to say... I LOVE YOU AQUAMAC For those their 9800GTX/GTX+ does not work : I used the GFX Strings method without NVKush then installed 10.5.5 Combo update, then installed 10.5.5 Graphics Kexts & Framework from Aquamac, repaired permissions and voilàààà !
Hi and welcome. If you are still on 10.5.2 you will have a problem as 10.5.2 + the Apple graphics update is the minimum to get the card even recognised in leopard. You really need to update to 10.5.5 or 10.5.6 recommended. There have also been problems with Kalyway 10.5.2 and this card but hopefully if you get yourself updated things will work. Update then use my graphics string walkthrough here
PS, There is absolutely no reason to flash the 8 or 9 series.
Long time since I've been posting anything here, but I've been keeping en eye on the board anyhow . First of all, great work on getting the 9800 GTX working !
I have a couple of questions since my X1950XT are slowly dying.
There's been done some interesting work on getting the HD 4850 and HD 4870 working in Hackintoshes, but since this is experimental work, and the boards offered to the new imac and macpro differs in design from the retail boards on sale, I've been thinking on maybe going down the 9800 GTX route instead.
1. Will these cards support dual vga displays (I have two 21" CRT apple studio monitors, currently conncted using DVI->VGA adapters)?
2. What brand of 9800 GTX+ have the highest success rate?
I have a setup consisting of a BadAxe2 (Leopard 10.5.6 vanilla/retail install), E6700 running at 3.2 GHz with 4 GB of PC 6400 RAM. Toughpower 850w PSU.
I have an asus vw222s, is native res is 1680x1050...
and yes i'm using 10.5.6...i was able to get more res than the 1024x768...like 1600x1200 or more but even tough i've done the method explained with the osc86, adding the efi and the 1680x1050x32 flag, i can't get that res....any idea why?
Hi first i'm apologize for my poor english, i'm from brazil.
I,d tried to install my EVGA 9800gtx on 10.5.6 and have no luck.
I install the 9800gtx( with the patches) on IPC 10.5.6 Final image, so i try to apply strings on osx86tolls, and for some reason the apple.boot.plist cant be changed. So i start to do your gfx strigs method, and apply the HEX to apple.boot.plist in efi studio. After i aply the permissions with success. Than i delete the nvinject kext and restart.
Result= Nothing QE and CI not supported and the 9800 gtx KEXT disapear. So i apply the permission and my resolution 1600x1050 come back, but the kext dissapear.
Now i've look about your succeful install of 9800 gtx in 10.5.5 with yout installing package. Do you recomend me come bak to the 10.5.5, and if yes what IMAGE to use: Aitkos, Ideneb, or Kalyway with combo update?
