    Default Display Problem

    Hello, i am new in Mac

    I install Mac osx using kalyway disc which can boot in the system (no display driver install, only 1024x768 default resolution)

    my display card is galaxy GeForce 8500GT (256Mb) which only have HDMI and DVI output
    Galaxy GF8500GT PCI-E 256MB DDR2 128-bit, Overclocked, 500MHz/800MHz, HDCP support!!! HDTV, DVI, Fan I/O card, prices
    i use DVI-HDMI cable connect from DVI port of display card to HDMI of monitor

    the NVCAP value get by using Nibitor in windows environment
    I try to install display driver by using osx86 tools with custom NVCAP (read from NVCAP maker) but the result is black screen after reboot

    Is there anything wrong i do? pls kindly help. Many Thanks

    Hi there,
    I don't think you do anything wrong. This is hackintosh so you just have to try out different methods, unless someone have the exact hardware configuration as yours. Have you try graphic injection yet? Mine is 8400 GS, not as nice as yours but maybe in very close hardware and what works for me in both 10.5.8 and 10.6.2 with full QE/Cl may work for you.
    If you like to try it then delete the kext/driver NVcap, load the ATI ATY_init injection in /S/L/E if using Leopard or in /E/E if on SL, and don't forget to repair permission, delete kext cache and rebuild extensions.mkext.
    Are you also the one with kb/mouse problem>
    Let us know how things go for you.
    Regards,

    Hello ratvn,

    Thanks for your kindly reply.
    "Have you try graphic injection yet?"
    "If you like to try it then delete the kext/driver NVcap, load the ATI ATY_init injection in /S/L/E if using Leopard or in /E/E if on SL, and don't forget to repair permission, delete kext cache and rebuild extensions.mkext."

    would you mind explain in details? because I am new and no idea about how to do the process you mentioned. My installation is 10.5.2. Sorry for my weak knowledge in Mac.

    Hi,
    If that NVcap doesn't work then you need to delete it to make sure it doesn't interfere with your new driver. Go to /S/L/E (system/library/extensions), delete everything relate to NV. Find your ATI ATY_init kext either from your installation DVD or go to kexts.com (under video section, or google it), and when you there you could also download kext helper b7 (which is a kext installer), and then install your kext. You can use OSX86 tools or disk utilities to repair permission and rebuild mkext (or reboot with boot options: -f to force kext rebuilt).
    Good luck,
    Regards,
