Video Issue

Recommended Posts

FIRST: A shout out to everyone on the team here for your hard work and generosity sharing everything with us! Thanks a lot!

I own a 2010 MacBook Pro, but I love building the hacks!

Wondering if I can get a little help here... I've successfully installed Hackintosh Zone Yosemite...

My problem is I can't get video without using the boot flag: nv_disable=1... Of course I just get a janky low res system when I get in..

If I boot with GraphicsEnabler=Yes, my monitor shuts off (lost signal) after grey apple boot screen..

If I boot with GraphicsEnabler=No I get a grey/white screen with no cursor after grey apple boot screen...

I've tried several combinations of boot flags together: GraphicsEnabler=Yes/No, PCRootUID=0/1, npci=0x2000/3000 ---No Joy...

Everything else is fine and video was fine on this card/system on snow leopard...

MB:  Asus P5QE

GPU:   BFG Tech Gforce GTS 250 1GB.

I'll be happy to provide more info if necessary (I'm definitely green behind the ears when it comes to hackintosh --but otherwise very tech savvy)

 

Thank you for any help!  :-)  Denster

Hey,

I had a lot of troubles with installing Niresh on my P5Q Pro board, interesting because on all other boards I tried it was the easiest way to make a hackintosh bootable. Managed a few q35, h61, z77 chipset boards working just fine with this method but no success with P5Q pro, so I tried with EasyBeast and it was it, booted, working. So try another method, There is something in this distro messing with that mob. In other hand, for other boards, I find Niresh method for the best way to install Mavericks. So my advice is to try another method.

Cheers.

Sorry for my English.

@Brattila: Thanks for your response! Good advice to try another method.... I did. I gave up on trying to get the GTS 250 graphics working. I swapped it out for an 8800 GTS. The 8800 GTS "Just Works" lending more time for other endeavors...

    • Hi You might use Apple Disk Utility to clone the disk. May be you must  write a disk image of your Startup disk first. Carbon CopyCloner will do it too ( EVEN IF THE DISK IS IN USE). Then you must install Clover on the Disk and copy the contents of the efi Partition of your startup dist to the Clone. Voila thats it.
    • I have an HP desktop that is running Niresh Mavericks. I have a second computer that is identical. I haven't been able to get the distro to install. Is there a way to copy the boot drive that works now and put that copied drive into the second machine. The second machine allows me to install the Niresh distro, but then won't boot from it at all. Can I use an Ultimate Boot CD to clone the drive?  Also, I check both computers and they are both running the exact same bios and settings.  
    • @Epikry Did you made the USB with Hackintosh High Sierra Zone?
