I'm using nothing atm. I just tried from your installer without success. Now i deleted all with rm-rf .../Ge* and ../NV* and i'm without drivers. Call tell me if have any idea, steps i should follow for make at least res change availble?
You are going to need to reinstall all your NVIDIA kexts for a start off.
You will also need to install GFX strings correctly. Without them you will be stuck in frame buffer mode.
You need to follow the GFX strings tutorial and do that first. Then reinstall my drivers. You will know when GFX strings are working as System Profiler will show the details of your Graphics card correctly.
Follow this walkthrough first, then install my series 9 drivers.
My drivers only replace the NVIDIA kexts, you still need GFX strings to inject your cards EFI details as the rom on PC cards lacks this information and no PC graphics card will work on a hackintosh properly without it.
No this driver is not yet suitable for Nvidia FX 260/280. I would think, it will be 10.5.7/10.5.8 before this is supported. There is rudimentary support in Snow Leo I am told, but it is not yet functional.
Hi Aquamac and all the readers, I've a ASUS EN9800GT and I tried to use your method posted above on a iDeneb v1.3 hack 10.5.5, that at first look seems all OK, I could use Final Cut, Photoshop, games like Call of Duty... but I could see some warm air flowing rear the box, and the VGA cooler didn't hear like working hardly. I have been working on the computer using P2P, editing video, etc... in this conditions since today, when I came to the computer the image was freeze, I rebooted it on windows and there was the fan meters about 80 "C, I try to boot in hackintosh and if I came down to the dock when the icons magnifies, freeze the computer.
Do U know something similar to my problem? Is there any form to modify the VGA cooling speed? Are the GF 8800 GT working proper with autofan?
Please tell me if U have any suggestion.
My Hackintosh is a ASUS P5K-PL, Intel Core 2Quad Q6600@2.4GHz, 2x2GB DDR2@667, ASUS EN9800GT Ultimate 512MB@725MHz
All G92 SERIES have a flaw in them that stops the fan rotating at the right speed. It is fairly well documented. As far as I know, NVIDIA fixed this problem with their windows drivers as it was easier to this than getting loads of people to reflash their cards. The solution, either buy an aftermarket fan or you need to remove one of the 4 fan wires which makes the fan run at full speed which keeps the card cool but obviously makes more noise. i will try to find which wire needs moving and let you know.
Just saying thanks, i used your method to generate strings for my 9800GTX+ which gave me acceleration and so so performance on COD4(Mac of course) Then ran this installer and get much better performance.
EVGAx58 Core i7 firstname.lastname@example.orgGHz 3GB DDR3 DUAL 9800GTX+ 500GB SATA
are these drivers included in 10.5.6? because my 9600 GT is working perfectly with just a EFI string and no special drivers.
Also, is there anything I can change to make my gfx card go slower or not hog the PCI bus? when there is heavy gfx activity it causes dropouts in my firewire audio devices... when i install the gfx card in the 8x PCIe slot it fixes the problem, but it blocks a slot i need for another card, so i would rather leave the gfx card in the 16x slot and tame it through a software setting if possible... any suggestions?
Just trying to build my first Hackintosh and just got her booting for the first time. Happy Days!!
Unfortunately I'm working on a tight budget and so gladly accepted a gift from a friend of an Asus Geforce 9500 512M PCI-E card. I'm dual booting Vista and this card works well for the occasional game I want to play but obviously it's "a bit odd" and isn't recognised by any of the EFI string programs or drivers I've found (at least so far).
Is this supported by your driver? I believe it's essentially an 8600 with DDR2 memory and a die shrink on the GPU itself. Can it be forced to be recognised as an 8600? I'm just trying to get QE/CI working and I'll be very happy!
My last alternative would be to try and sell this card on to a "Winblows only" punter and buy something a bit more compatible.
