    Default Asus p5N32-E Plus SLi and dual video cards help.

    I have an Asus P5N32-E Plus SLI mobo with two 8800 GTS video cards.
    I have succesfully gotten the OSX86 to in stall with the PenDrive version of iATKOS.
    However the video not working quiet right. It will give me what ever resolution I put in at start up with the "Graphics=" command. But there is no hardware acceleration or ability to change resolution. And I am getting signal only from one card.
    When I use any of the Nvidia inject or NVDarin etc the machine locks up right before it gets to the part where it would go to the GUI interface after using the -v command. I have followed all the instructions but must be missing something.
    Has anybody gotten this set up to work and if so what steps did they follow?
    Sam

    Did you try installing this? after installation use EFI Studio to finish the installation and reboot.

    OK I tried it with the iATKOS and freezes on start up.
    I then ran the iPC 1.5.6 latest with PPF5 and same result. If I edit the Boot.plst and take out what the EFI program put in, it will then boot.
    So everything works good except the video. Which it looks good with adding Graphics Mod=1920X1200X32@65.
    I noticed when the boot loader loads it always is showing some 16mb card not either of the 8800's in my pc. Where as the other two machines I set up the video card is identified in the boot loader.
    Any thoughts?

    Thats your onboard video card with 16mb video, did you try using just one to test?

    My mobo does not have onboard video.

    OK a bit of sucess. I took out one of the two cards. Ran the install as mentioned and the EFI program, restarted and it worked.

    Took out card #1 put in card #2 and did the same procedure. That worked.

    Put card #1 back in so both cards are in and freezes up.

    Any thoughts?
