Dual monitor issue

Recommended Posts

This is driving me crazy... I have a video card with two outputs, a VGA and a DVI. My monitor is connected via VGA and I want to use another one on the DVI port with OSX. However, if I connect it to the DVI port, the main monitor goes into power save and nothing works. This also happens at boot, instead of the login screen I get a black monitor.

 

The only thing that works is using PCIRootUID=1 and I selected that at the niresh installation. Everything worked fine, both monitors, etc. That is until I upgraded to 10.9.2 - after restart, same problem as before. Adding that boot flag to the Chameleon file doesn't work, I had to add PCIRootUID=0 to make my primary monitor work again...

 

What can I do? :(

Maybe the graphics drivers are not yet compatible with (10.9.2 update)

Do both monitors works on 10.9 ?

You can try changing SMBios or give me Your graphic card info ,il

Look to see if theres Video drivers for 10.9.2

At the first reboot after installing Niresh (with PCIRootUID=1 selected in the options screen), yes, both monitors work fine. I also did another reboot, after Niresh finished configuring the installation, just to make sure and the monitors still worked. But, as I said, after updating to 10.9.2 everything went downhill... 

 

My video card is a nvidia 8600 GT 512MB. I remember having the same issue with other distros too, like iatkos - I always had to boot with PCIRootUID=1 to make the dual monitors work...

    • I get this message no matter what I do, I've tried changing my SMBIOS to a newer model to no avail. Anyone no how to get the second install boot to work?
    • This is my first time doing Hackintosh. I've several other machines running Mac using UniBeast and Multi beast. I wanted to try Hackintosh Vanilla. So far, no luck. I followed the Guide and MacPwn Mojave Guide. 
    • Hello! I wanted to install MacOS High Sierra, but the SSD does not appear in Disk Manager. I have a Samsung Pro 840 250GB. Is there a Driver for Intel Gigabit 82579LM Network LAN for MacOS High Sierra?
    • This is my very first post and have looked around the forums to my question but I wasn't able to find the exact specifics that I need. This is my very first windows/mac dual boot project. I chose to attempt high sierra and I hope I am posting in the correct area. High Sierra seemed to be the newest that is possibly more stable than Mojave so I chose that. I'm reaching out to the more advanced builders and experienced people. I'm currently running Win 10 as of now and bought a separate SSD to install a macOS on. Before I invest time and energy into this. I'm wanting to get the best recommendations on what OS I should choose , if my hardware will be up for the task and my best plan of attack. I'll be honest I'm not ready to bang my head on the keyboard for hours. I've been there and done that.  My hardware was some of the best at its time in 2011 and I'm not 100% confident it will work with a more up to date macOS I'm also concerned about drivers for my GPU.  All input is welcomed   Here are my current specs:   CPU
          Intel Core i7 2600 @ 3.40GHz    28 °C
