vNidia GeForce 210 | Black Screen | Niresh 10.9.0

Dear Niresh/Community,


I decided I would add to my arsenal of os's and try out a hackintosh. I ran into a big problem, and desperately need help.


My specs.

-Dell Optiplex 330

-2 GB 664 MHz DDR2 SDRAM

-Intel Pentium Dual Core (64) 2.00 GHz, 2.00 GHz

-nVidia GeForce 210 PCIEx graphics (Integrated Intel HD graphics)

-3 monitors, all with the same result. (Toshiba HDTV, viewsonic va1930wm, HP Vs17e)


I downloaded and successfully installed Niresh's OS X 10.9 from here. Everything went smoothly until the install finished and the computer rebooted. After the reboot, I see the normal startup screen/apple logo. This is where it gets interesting, my monitor reports "No Signal" as soon as the nVidia drivers are loaded in preparation for logon. I reboot using only integrated graphics, and it works like a charm. Is there some way I can use my nVidia card with my Hackintosh?



I fixed my problem by switching to the Clover os x bootloader, from chameleon. However there are a few other problems I've been wondering about. I'm now using the nVidia GeForce 210 with QuartzGL enabled, however, I can't change the resolution (stuck at 1024x768 on a 1440x900 monitor). I also noticed that certain visual elements on the screen have a habit of flashing rapidly as they update (IE; A loading webpage). My final bug is one I've heard a lot about, my mouse will stay behind as I drag a window. Can anyone help me with these problems?

-Just a note, all of these last stated problems are present on both the nVidia and integrated graphics systems.

I fixed everything!!!

Here's how:

I was looking around and found that nVidia made specific mac drivers for my model, however my intel chipset was not supported. I got frustrated and decided to update to OS X 10.9.2. As soon as I rebooted into the update (It worked OOB, surprisingly I did not have to do anything for the update to work) and as soon as I did, this driver auto-configured itself and changed to my native 1440x900 res.


I repeat, install CUDA drivers/then OS X 10.9.2 update/then reboot! that's all I had to do! I logged on and it all fell into place like a miracle!


It fixed everything! I can even play nanosaur II and Minecraft!


Should I write this down for any others wishing to make a Dell Optiplex 330 Hackintosh? (btw, this is a windows XP computer, lol).

try to use different setting in Clover so use Clover Configurator ,,

try load Vbios ,,inject Nvidia ,Inject Resolution ,,inject edid is also .


exact model of your Graphics Card you have nVidia won't produce Graphics Card only Chips ,,

Gt210 is tesla Card which natively Supported in OSX Mavericks ,,for chameleon you need to Use GraphicsEnabler=Yes and PciRootUID=1

    • Ok, so I built a new hackintosh with Niresh Mavericks 10.9.0 on a modified Dell Precision T7400 and mostly everything seems to be working correctly except for two things: Sound (The obvious one), and Online video content (Youtube, Facebook videos, etc) play at lower than 1 fps, frozen speed, after 10 seconds of playback it reaches 4 seconds of elapsed time and I have found no other forums explaining this or talking about this so I decided to bring it up here. As for the sound situation, I already bought a new card to replace the X-FI, so yes, I am aware of the Sound Blaster Audigy X-FI Xtreme Audio not being supported, but what caught my attention is that the sound was working and video playback problem was gone temporarily, I happened to hear the sound from my headphones sitting on my desk and put them on, and sound. I decided to test a video on youtube, the problem with the videos, gone. But after a reboot, they were back. However I have the logs from today and can give them to whoever wants/needs them to figure out what may have caused the sound to kick in on the X-FI and maybe add support for this sound card. I copied as far back in the time that the system was on while sound was working that I could up to the shutdown event. I know it's pretty large but I am not sure where to look, I am simply handing this out to whoever wants to see what may have given me audio on this card for the session. From what I can see that looked to be the most closely related to my issue is something to do with bluetooth (I don't have bluetooth, btw), it says in console: "9/20/17 6:49:55.785 PM[200]: The plug-in named BluetoothAudioPlugIn.driver requires extending the sandbox for the mach service named" repeatedly many times. This could be completely unrelated.   The only recent actions I made that I personally can think of that may have triggered this would be: I installed several different versions of a music player through Winebottler and it failed to start, more and likely because of the lack of .net framework 2.0 and 4.0, this is my highest suspicion of being the likeliest cause, but I could be wrong. I installed Crossover and installed the music player in it, which it ran in and is where I discovered that you need .net 2.0 and 4.0 (It had the player in it's database and installed .net automatically) Ran Discord (It uses output/input, so may as well add that in) The player was MusicBee, and when it crashed, it also left a log that I could probably try to reproduce if needed.   Specs: Dell Precision T7400, 1x Intel Xeon x5482 Nvidia Geforce GTX 660 16GB ddr2 ram 667mhz (Tested to be working correctly, please don't ask me to run a mem test I am impatient enough as it is)
