  1. Hi I want Display Kexts for Nvidia Geforce 210 (1GB DD3 1333) Graphic card i am using Snow Leopard 10.6 Thanks in Advance
  2. I have a PNY branded Geforce 210 graphics card in my dell optiplex 780 hackintosh. It worked perfectly up until recently. I had internet issues and ended up resetting my hackintosh entirely. After the reinstall, I can't boot with the graphics card. I should mention this is mavericks. When I boot with the graphics card in, I get through verbose mode with everything loading and the card is recognized. At this point the screen goes black and loses signal. I've literally tried everything I can find online. [Note I have found a tutorial on this before, as that's how I got it working, but after a week if searching I can't relocate it]
  3. theconsumer1's GA-H61m-DS2 / Core i5 / 8GB RAM / GeForce210 Build! (running 10.9.1 Mavericks) ? ? Hey folks, I wanted to share my build with you all. It is full functional with virtually no problems. I use this build as a workstation for music production and small photo editing. It makes a mean machine for almost any user besides a gamer. The weak GeForce 210 does not offer a great experience for gaming, however I will eventually upgrade the build to a GTX650 and an SSD in the future. If you have any question about the build, contact me on here. Thanks~! ? Components: ? Average Build Cost: $520 ? Gigabyte GAH61m-DS2 (rev 2.2) Motherboard (bios F7) Core i5 2500k @ 3.3Ghz EVGA GeForce 210 1024mb? 8gb Corsair XMS3 1333mhz 750 GB W.D. HDD Coolermaster Elite 460w PSU Asus WIFI USB-N13 Adapter (optional) NZXT Source 210 Computer Case (white) ? Installation Notes: ? OSX Mavericks 10.9 was installed on this build via U{censored}. However, mountain lion/lion will also work, But Mavericks seems to be the most compatible I have ran yet. Mountain lion ran into some issues when updating to 10.8.3. I prefer Mavericks. ? ? ? ? ? Note: This build needs to be booted with?GraphicsEnabler=Yes ? ? Bios Settings (running version F7): ? Load optimize Defaults Set SATA to AHCI Change Internal Graphics to 'PEG' Enable HPET Disable onboard graphics (not recommended by me, keep on "auto") ? Post Installation: ? Download MB{censored} for mavericks (only latest version will work) Select DSDT Free Installation (or you can select Chimera bootloader,) Realtek ALCxxx > Without DSDT> alc887/888b Current (sound driver) Realtek - Lnx2Mac's Realtek RTL81xx v0.0.90 (Ethernet) NullCPUPower Generate CPU states Hibernate Mode - desktop (ensures proper shutdown) Use KernelCache Place the correct SSDT in /extra folder if you have an extremely slow boot/shutdown process:?http://www.{censored}.com/audio/109902-usb-start-up-problem-aka-audio-problem.html Note: Always boot with GraphicsEnabler=Yes ? ? ? ? ? IF you bought the Asus Wireless Wifi USB-n13 Adapter, visit this link:http://www.asus.com/Networking/USBN13/#support Or search in google "Asus Wireless n13 USB stick utility" ? Once, at the page, you need to download the Asus Wireless utility (NOT DRIVERS) for 10.7 ? Last words: ? Thanks to {censored} and osx86.net for letting me share my build and also for providing all the resources to make this possible. A thanks to {censored} user peacefulwilly who provided a post on a similar build to help me out. I have a guide on {censored} under "user builds" in which you can also check out. ? FAQ: ? Why isnt this build shutting down properly? This build will never reach proper shutdown with these settings. The sound driver ruins the shutdown. I don't know why. ? Why is it that I cannot boot into the BIOS with my GeForce210 GPU? The GeForce 210 card is small, therefore it will not always allow you to access the BIOS with large HDTVs. If you get a monitor, it will be able to boot into the bios without a black screen. ? What about a bootloader? This build does not like bootloaders. I have always used the U{censored} USB stick to boot into the OSX partition. I have tried bootloaders and all have never worked. BUT the other day I installed the "DSDT Free installation" on MB{censored} and it hooked me up with a Chimera Bootloader that seems to be working greatly. Try that. ? ? I hope you all enjoyed my build and hopefully i can help others out there running a similar configuration. This build is very compatible. I do NOT use HD3000 integrated graphics because I like to keep a load off my CPU. This EVGA GeForce210 works fine and is compatible right out the box with GE=Yes ? Comments are appreciated. Peace! ? ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- ? ? UPDATE: ?10.9.1 was a success 100 percent... however the update did remove my SSDT in /extra. So i reinstalled it because of the slow boot process. Were good! ? UPDATE: 10.9.2 Success. No problems. ? UPDATE: 10.9.3 Success. Had to reinstall sound driver!
  4. "The resolution is perfect, but the launchpad animations and the notification center animations are really laggy. The launchpad takes a few seconds so load and with no animation at all... and the NotifCent is glitching with red kinda squares in it. Minimizing/closing/opening animations work." "It means you got no full QE/CI support." I have a 1GB Gigabyte Geforce 210. This is exactly what happens to me. The only difference is that this person had Intel HD Graphics 3000. I deleted my Nvidia/NVDA/ATI kexts to install Mountain Lion and don't use a DSDT. In previous experiences on Snow Leopard a DSDT stuffed it all up but maybe I did something wrong? I've so far tried an EFI String and enabling it with OSX86 Tools.
  5. Hey guys! Whats up? Just got my new video card. EVGA GeForce 210 1024MB Before I ask any quesitons. Here are my specs: Core i5 2500k 3.3 Ghz Gigabyte H61m-Ds2 Rev 2.2 Bios F7 EVGA GeForce 210 1GB DDr3 8GB Corsair DDr3 1333 750 GB Seagate HDD 10.8 ML (Havent had time to update to 10.8.2 yet) Used U{censored} method and have no bootloader to partition. So onto my question... I am running my GeForce 210 on Mountain Lion via HDMI. Full Resolution, fully recognized. Worked out of the box with stock ML Nvidia Drivers. Sounds so nice right? well not exactly.. The only way I can get my system to boot into my GeForce with full resolution is to enter the bootflags: " -v PCIRootUID=0 If I boot normally, the card goes into automatic black sleep screen right before log in. My question is, where can I fix this problem and be able to boot right in from U{censored} without having to write the bootflag?? I understand there are option in MB{censored} 5.0.2 to do such tasks. However, I am in fear of going fourth with them in case of a K-Panic or something bad happening. Anyone? I would appreciate your knowledge. Thanks a lot!
  6. Hi Everyone! Im a newbie to this whole osx86 thing and i need some help !! I got 10.6.8 on my crappy old amd pc and it works almost perfect but from time to time freezes randomly(some time after like.. 10 min after boot and some times can last up to 4-8 hours without freezing) and i have to force restart(yes press that button on the case!) Ok now this was not that simple because i had to use an 10.5 lawlessppc installation and from that to install osx 10.6 to other partition(with the leohazard for intel/amd) and then upgrade to 10.6.8(combo update) MY RIG! Processor : AMD Athlon X2 7550 Kuma 2.5GHz Socket AM2+ Motherboard : GA-M61PME-S2 (rev. 2.x) Hard Drive : Hitachi HDP725050GLA SCSI Disk Device Memory : 2GB DDR2 Kingmax Stick Graphics : ASUS GeForce 210 1GB DDR3(works oob) Sound Card : CMI8738 PCI(kinda old but still it works perfectly) Bootloader : Chimera 1.11.1(full support for my graphics card) Kernel : 10.6.8 legacy kernel by nawcom Kexts : AppleNForceATA(most important because without it i cant boot)/Official quadro drivers form Nvidia + CUDA Drivers for mac/CMI8738PCIAudio(for enable the audio of the pci card) This morning i started itunes as i usually do and after 30 min it froze the display and boom beachball of death.The Solution : Force Restart by pressing the button!! Help me please !!
  7. Background: I am a Windows Engineer of some considerable experience, who has on occasion been forced to fix the odd unix-related problem. I have been using Macs at home for about five or six years and quite like them, enough to have bought a couple and have a hankering for another. I should however point out that I haven't ever really had to fix much with any of the my Macs, I wouldn't consider myself any higher than a "power user" at a push. So I was poking around on eBay watching auctions of minis and iMacs, roughly around the 2006-8 time-range and seeing that they were regularly selling for anything from £200-£400, so I started squirelling away the pennies when it occured to me that most of the machines I was looking at were Core Duo or even Core Solo, therefore not capable of running more recent builds of OSx. So I thought to myself, do I really want to spend that much money on something that is already pushing obsolesence? Probably not, but what to do? I cast my mind back to the bad old days when I tried to build a Hackintosh using 10.4, laughed at my ridiculous idea and then went about my day. But for some reason, I couldn't get the idea out of my head, probably because I hate to be defeated. So before I knew what was what I had dusted off my old rig (literally, with canned air and a black sack) and was busily trying to find an intelligible guide appropriate to the hardware I had to hand, which for the record was as follows.. Hardware: Generic PSU Board: Gigabyte GA-EG41MF-US2H socket 775 mainboard (Link: GIGABYTE - Motherboard - Socket 775 - GA-EG41MF-US2H (rev. 1.3)) or google the board name if the link expires CPU: Intel E2160 (Link: Intel® Pentium® Processor E2160 (1M Cache, 1.80 GHz, 800 MHz FSB) ) or google Graphics: Asus nVidia GeForce 210 1GB Silent - which I should admit I bought especially for this project. (Link: Asus GeForce 210 Silent Graphics Card (1GB, DDR3): Amazon.co.uk: Computers & Accessories) RAM: 4GB of whatever was cheapest back in 07 when I built it, shows in hardware profile as A-DATA DDR2 800, 2x2GB HD: Seagate ST9500420AS (500GB SATA II, 2.5") So How did I do it? (The build: ) Well after a couple of days tinkering it became apparent that in order to make my life easier, I should buy a known good grpahics card rather than the one I had which apparently no-one else on the whole planet ever bought. This makes the first few days of work irrelevant so I will not detail them. So after a couple more days playing around following as best I could guides written by people with different components than me or different OSX'es I was beginning to lose hope, until I came across this awesome guide: {censored} Blog: iB{censored} + MB{censored}: Install Mac OS X on any Intel-based PC - I take no credit for this guide, it was not written by me. What I can tell you is that by following it and applying a little common sense and background knowledge, I was at 10.6.8 from a blank disk in TWO HOURS (considering I had been at it for a week at this point, I was delighted.) If your hardware matches mine, remember to install VooDooHDA in MB{censored} as this is not installed by default. The guide invites you to install other components, it's just a tickbox. So, I was already most of the way there. Everything except full-on grpahics working. I installed all the outstanding updates and rebooted. Now I had to set about the graphics card. A quick look at the super-awesome 10.6.8 HCL (HCL 10.6.8 - OSx86) showed me that my card was supported (I already knew this) and that I could "make it go" using graphicsenabler=yes (Included in the build above by default) and by injecting the card's EFI string into boot.plist. What? I hear you ask, isn't EFI A record label? Well no it isn't, that's EMI and fear not, it's damn sight easier than you are probably thinking at this point. To The internet! once again. This time, I came across another useful guide, here: Asus nVidia GeForce 210 1GB DDR3 Working! - InsanelyMac Forum -I ended up doing this twice after doing something stupid and having to start again. The first time through I nicked the EFI String right out of this guide, whilst it did work after a fashion, I had problems... only one monitor would work, changing res caused the screen to go blue til after a reboot... This guide does tell you how to get your own EFI string, it takes seconds and is totally worth it, as I was able to get Full HD, dual displays apparently with nothing broken (Played Diablo 3 on full settings for hours.) NOTE ON EFI INJECTION: If you have followed this guide and are intending to follow it to completion, you will need to note that in this build rather than inserting the EFI string for your graphics card into com.apple.boot.plist as directed in the guide, you will instead need to add it to org.chameleon.Boot.plist, located in /Extra So having injected the string and rebooted, you should be looking at a nice, modern resolution and wondering to yourself whether you're about finished.. well you are. Congratulations. The first thing you should do is attach a spare drive and use an application such a Carbon Copy Cloner (Carbon Copy Cloner - Home) and clone out your hard work before you go and do something stupid to it, like I did twice.) Does anything not work? Yes - I can't get into the appstore BUT THE ITUNES STORE DOES WORK. My belief is that I have an invalid system serial number, but trying to change it caused me complete rebuild from scratch number two, so I can live without it for now. Anything else? Nope. It's been up for three days now, running Diablo 3 for several hours during the day and playing 1080p video via XBMC in the evening. No unexpected reboots, no weirdness, performance is staggering - it leaves my 2008 iMac (8.1) in the dust. So what I have done here is proved to myself that it is most certainly possible for a Mac novice to build a decent performing Hackintosh for a fraction of the cost of equivalent Apple hardware. Which wasn't much of a surprise, but I was glad my proof of concept went ahead. Over the coming months, I will be improving the hardware in stages, beginning with a case and PSU which don't require their own seperate outbuilding, then an SSD and when I can be bothered to go through all the above again, I will replace the board and CPU with something a little more current, but right now, it will more than meet my needs. If you have any questions about the specifics of this guide please either reply to this thread or email me moc.liamg@revoltaoggnigar (its reversed) but as I said way back at the start, I'm no expert. This worked for me, it may not for you. This is just me giving something back to the Hackintosh community. . I will try and help you where I can, but in all likelihood following my advice on an existing build will break it. Always make changes to your cloned build rather than your live one, it will save you a world of pain.
  8. Hi! I managed to install osx lion on my pc(nvidia 210 ddr3 1gb,3gb of ram and and dual core 7550 processor) by installing iatkos l2 from a working mackintosh partition and with the help of finder from dp2,applenforceata,ioatafamily for lion and bronzovka v4 kernel i got it to work but i have a problem and maybe someone got a fix...

  9. hello, for the last days i have been searching on the internet for the components of my first hackintosh build. and now i think I got what i wanted. can anyone approve if these components work together to form a working hackintosh? motherboard: Gigabyte GA-Z68Z-UD3H-B3 processor: Intel Core I5 2500K RAM: G.Skill SQ Series - 8 GB : 2 x 4 GB Hard disk: I'm not sure yet, because I want to buy my HD on ebay, but every harddisk will work right? disk drive: Sony Optiarc AD5280S case: Spire Midi Tower CoolBox 208 ATX 420W graphics card: Nvidia EVGA geforce 210 this is everything i want to buy, so not something which i thought was not important to write down or something. this is , except for the software ofcourse, everything i am gonna order to build my mac, so if there is something i need to add to my list, please tell me. the graphics card should be fine i think but the problem i have with it is that i saw on the internet that there is no audio with the hdmi, and thats not nice. but i also read that you could fix that. has anyone expierenced that or fixed it or does anyone knows a link where that is explained? i know this is a lot i'm asking for, but i really need those answers to finish my build. kind regards Sjoerd
