GTX 550 Ti not working in mountain lion

Recommended Posts

Hey all, I've got a bit of a pickle for you.


If I use Lion, I get graphics working perfectly with little to minor stutters.


In mountain lion, however I get a either a hang at NVDAGF100Hal loaded and registered or, It shows me a black screen.


I can get mountain lion working with everything except graphics If I remove Applepolicycontrol.kext from AppleGraphicsControl.kext and all of the NV**** .kext files. Does anyone know of any solution or anything?

After install, move video kexts http://Olarila.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=27&t=1677


Add your card's ID in NVDAResman and NVDAGF100Hal http://Olarila.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=18&t=154


Re-install kexts from backup.

Okay so my Device ID is 1244. I inserted it into the last one replacing "0x"1240"10de&0xffc0ffff with "1244" in NVDAGF100hal and put the same string into NVDAResman under IOPCIMatch between and . I didnt include the quotes obviously as i know that would throw an error I just tried it again and it still give me a black screen.

Move video kexts to backup again, then run Chameleon Wizard, check GraphicsEnabler, click on the magnifying glass next to PciRoot=1 and save.


Reboot and run this command in terminal

ioreg -lw0 -p IODeviceTree -n efi -r -x | grep device-properties | sed 's/.*<//;s/>.*//;' > ~/Desktop/device-properties.hex

Attach the file device-properties.hex created on desktop (first check if its size is not zero).


It won't solve the problem, I just want to check if Chameleon is generating the string correctly.

When you click the magnifying glass it says the PciRoot is 0 or 1?


Did you try booting with kexts installed after using Chameleon Wizard?

Looks like i jumped the gun a bit. It's working at the monitors native resolution, but It's not accelerated at all. Opening NC gives me a red glitch until it opens, and switching from things is choppy. Definitely no QE/CI


Fixed: I readded the GeForce drivers. This is just AWESOME! Thanks for your help, Cassio.

Try unchecking GraphicsEnabler and paste this string into device properties (check the option)

device-properties.hex.zip

 

Make sure both kexts are edited correctly. Re-install all nVidia kexts from backup (NVDA* and GeForce*).

Hi Siterah,


I am missing the Geforce kexts on my ML Retail and I don't have QE/CI on 8600m, I used to have perfect QE/CI on OSX 10.7.4. Could you please share the Geforce Kexts with me .

Hey all,


Would it be possible to get the instructions to get this working in the form of a consolidated guide? I've seen a lot of folks that would love to figure this out, but some of the directions involved are giving me trouble.


Would love to be able to play Portal 2 eventually :mrgreen:
