    Default EVGA nVidia GTX 260 in Lion not working yet

    Hey all, so I got everything working so far except my video card in Lion. I have tried the following methods below, with no avail, no cigar. So if anyone has any tips that are not the same things that I've tried already, please let me know. At least I know perfectly well now on how to delete a kext from the boot cd or usb thingy so I don't have to reinstall. Thanks in advance. Oh and also I am just wondering why I do not have an "Extra" folder that a lot of people are talking about here on the forums... it does not exist on my install of Lion in "/Extra/". And how do I disable the stupid reversed mouse wheel-scroll?.
    First off, my specifications are:
    ASUS Maximus Formula III
    Core i7 860
    16GB's RAM
    160GB SATA HDD (just for OS X)
    nVidia GTX 260 (896MB)
    750W PSU

    What I've tried so far:

    Tried adding:
    Code:
    <key>GraphicsEnabler</key> <string>Yes</string>

    to com.apple.Boot.plist located in /Lion/Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/

    And made it look like this:
    Code:
    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
    <!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd">
    <plist version="1.0">
    <dict>
    <key>GraphicsEnabler</key>
    <string>Yes</string>
    <key>Kernel Flags</key>
    <string></string>
    </dict>
    </plist>

    But that did not allow the video card to work, which is a nVidia GTX 260 (896MB). I am going to try something else and I'll post my progress here.

    I tried NVEnabler from the main site before the method below and it caused OS X to give me the black and white pixelated screen before booting, so I couldn't see anything at all. I undid this problem by booting off of my USB Lion boot disc and going into Terminal and typing:
    Code:
    cd /Volumes/[Volume Name]/System/Library/Extensions
    rm -r [Kext name]


    Restart.

    And I also found the HCL for my GTX 260 which says it worked with the "Kakewalk method", but it seems to be something similar to what we have here at Tonymacx86 with ###### and multi beast, and I only want the next for my card not a whole new kernel installed causing maybe my video card to work but then my system to not even boot because an invalid kernel would be installed. The hunt continues for a proper video kext....

    I have now properly installed my GTX 260 driver for Lion using Multibeast 3.7.2:
