How did you install ML?


GeForce is part of default installation, you must have deleted it somehow.

 

Thanks for the quick reply, you are right. I think I deleted the Geforce kexts when I deleted NVDA* kexts as I was not able to boot to the graphics install screen .

Then after install I had the same problem so, I deleted /S/L/E and copied S/L/E from the USB HDD.

So thats why I do not have Geforce kexts, but to my wonder I tried to get the Geforce kexts from my original mountain lion Install App downloaded from Mac App Store by restoring BaseSystem.dmg to a USB HDD and I did not find any Geforce kexts in /S/L/E :o !!


guide me cassio .

I think that was the problem, /S/L/E from USB base system is not as complete as the one installed to HD.


I would install again and just move video kexts for first boot http://Olarila.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=27&t=1677

Hi,


Sorry it was me who messed up installation by deleting Geforce* kexts during install and did not back up. Second install gave me perfect Graphics.


So, QE/CI works perfect in 8600m with GraphicsEnabler=Yes,PCIRootID=0, npci=0x2000 and Latest Chameleon.


Thanks for your help Cassio.

Well, this may be your semi-lucky day... I have a system here (Dell Inspiron 1525 w/o nvidia, so GMAX 3100) that works flawlessly (with QE/CI) on Lion 10.7.3 (32 bit mode).


I can't give you exact steps, because it was just a bunch of stuff I did.... and worse, if I try and change even one thing, the whole setup just stops booting with crazy unrelated errors to whatever I just did.


But, everything works if you leave it alone. (Yukon2 LAN, Dell/Broadcom, WIFI/Bluetooth, screen brightness, extended function keys... I think it even sleeps - not really checked though).


Most of the stuff came from a file (google it) hackintosh_dell_1525_10.7.0_v3.6.zip and "10.7.3 Post-Install.zip" ... someone already wrote a pretty good guide.
