  • Bro i am Really really Thankful to you………I saw several posts but it didnt work….But You saved me…Thanks So much….

  • I have a odd issue with this graphics card. I went thru the steps mentioned and it works only if the kext are loaded into S\L\E also only if I happen to boot with -x if I boot without it panics and will repeat the last panic error. And then to get it to boot as normal without -x being added I have to uncheck the inject Intel to get to boot normal but then it brings the graphics back to 5MB. Do you have any idea as to what is causes said issue.
