Hello,

I just installed a vanilla copy of Leopard on my computer using the how to listed here: New modified BOOT-132 allows you to boot retail DVDs - InsanelyMac Forum

Then I followed the following how to so I could boot from my EFI partition:
[Guide] Boot from EFI partition, zero modification installs on Intel SSE2 or better... - InsanelyMac Forum

I have been searching all day trying to figure out why I can't get Quartz Extreme to work correctly with my NVIDIA 7600GT card?? It works when I install with iDeneb, but not with the Vanilla install?? Can someone please give me some advice on what I could be doing wrong?

Am I even doing this the recommended way? Should I be using a different boot file on my EFI partition?

Right now when it boots it says I'm using EFI v5.0?

Anyway, any help would be GREATLY APPRECIATED!!

Thank you!

Here is a list of the kext's I'm loading off my EFI partition:
