    Exclamation 7600GT doesnt work on my iAtkos 5i...Is there a better OS installer?

    I installed 10.5.5 on a Dimension 4600 using iAtkos v5i, AppleSMBIOS netkas, ToH kernal, and EFI Boot v9. The only way I could even get it to boot was using NVkush, and that would only enter safe boot. I tried a hundred other options to get my EVGA 7600GT 256mb AGP card fully accelerated (Quarts and Core support), but the furthest I got was the ability to boot in normal mode with no acceleration support. I'm in desperate need for a fix, I am SO tired of reinstalling the OS (iAtkos takes 45min to install, and I wind up unbootable at least 4 times a day while trying diff solutions).
    Can somebody tell me how to make this work. If theres a better installer for 10.5.5 then iAtkos 5i for my setup that would allow easy installation of the card(and hopefully faster) or if you have a method to install the kexts/EFI strings/etc. that will make it work, please tell me. Also share on things to avoid or delete before the installation of the card (like deleting certian kexts before installing a new one). My setup is as follows:

    Dimension 4600
    Intel V/100 Network
    P4 3ghz SSE2 Processor
    Intel SATA 120 GB HDD with XP/OSX Dualboot
    SoundBlaster Live Value! Soundcard
    EVGA nVidea 7600GT 256mb AGP (the only thing I'm having issues with)

    PLEASE oh PLEASE Help me o.O O.o

    Alright, DL'ed the tools and am currently in the process of once again reinstalling iAtkos5i from my previous attempts. Now, to be sure, when I install iAtkos5i initially I use NVkush cuz its the only thing that will enable me to boot (only in safe). Before I install these kexts you gave me, will I have to remove any previous kexts? NVkush for instance? Also, would I need to edit any of the keys within the kexts you gave me using my device ID?

    Also, I found a few other tips while googling for the hr and 20min it takes to reinstall and I wanted your opinion on them, to see if you find any faults or contradictions on whether they would work. Heres the first excerpt:
    QUOTE(jaye @ Oct 12 2008, 01:40 AM)
    Here are the steps I took to get my NVIDIA GeForce 8400GS 256MB Graphics Card with QE/CI support working in 10.5.5
    1. Install NVInstaller.com's 9f23 installer making sure to select the memory size of your graphics card at startup
    2. Be sure to use EFI Studio to insert your graphics card make, and ram size into the com.apple.boot.plist file.
    3. Reboot without QE/CI support
    4. Download from apple.com the Leopard Graphics Update 1.0 and install using Pacifist.
    5. Reboot with full QE/CI support!
    I found this in the middle of a long long NVIDIA thread and thought it was beneficial for others. The finder of this technique got it working on a different NVIDIA card, so the possibilities for this to work with all NVIDIA cards that worked correctly in 10.5.2 are high.

    Im not sure whether the same solution applied to my 10.5.5, or whether I needed to delete or modify current kexts before the installation.

    The other said "Try EFI strings, EFI Studio makes it fairly brainless to use EFI strings. Be sure to uninstall all your video drivers from prior attempts. Otherwise, I recall reading AGP being problematic for OSx86" This one I had already tried, which is why I'm currently reinstalling v.v Maybe I didnt delete the right kexts? I had NVkush and NVinject, so I removed them before trying EFI studio...then rebooted to that lovely gray screen that tells me to restart >.<

    I'm going to try your solution first, once I clarify on whether or not I have to remove any of my current kexts (Whatever comes with NVkush and the EFI string for 7600GT that I selected in the iAtkos5i customise window) or alter any of the keys in the kexts you gave me before installation. Let me know what to do, then what you think of these two other solutions in case it doesnt work. I'm gonna wait for your reply before I take further action cuz I'm so friggin tired of reinstalling this DVD >.< It seems to take longer each time...
