  1. I don't have bluetooth or webcam built into my machine. I tried to get my dual monitor going on my GeForce GTX 560 Ti so I thought I could run multi beast to start that process. Everytime I run multi beast it breaks my machine into not booting anymore. So I must be setting something up wrong in it. I was able to go back into windows and edit by chameleon.plist back to original and copy back my original kext files and it then boots properly. I'm not sure why multi beast breaks my machine. I think it has something to do with the kext files because I tried just changing my chameleon.plist back to original and it wouldn't boot until I copied over my original kexts. So I still don't have dual monitor figured out yet. Which kext file are you trying to update for the device id?
  2. I have a similar setup as you. I have a PC: HP Pavilion Elite HPE-210f CPU: AMD Phenom II X4 945 Chipset: AMD 785G Motherboard: H-RS880-uATX (Aloe) turns out the manufacturer is Foxconn Graphics: Nvidia GTX 560 Ti Audio: integrated Realtec ALC888S I have two monitors hooked up to the graphics card. My primary via HDMI and my smaller secondary via DVI port (with an adapter that turns it into DB9, old monitor). I read that there would probably be issues with the HDMI port so I disconnected it and installed Niresh 10.9 with my secondary monitor on DVI. I installed with just "amd64 -v" as my boot flags. It took me a few installs to try some things out, but this seemed to work best. I didn't mess with anything in the Customize menu during disk setup. Once the OS loaded and permissions finished up I was able to reboot. I was able to get back to the OS is I booted into safe mode using -x, but everything was slow including startup. I finally narrowed it down to just typing in "GraphicsEnabler=Yes -v" and everything booted up and I had working ethernet, Audio, video. Mac store and iMessage works. I haven't gotten iCloud to connect yet. So maybe if you try something similar to what I did you will find success. I do have one other problem if anyone can help me. When I plug my primary monitor into the HDMI port it makes my second monitor (which I installed with) turn off and the HDMI video doesn't get to my second monitor. Any idea why that is? Maybe there is something I need to do in OS that I am ignorant of or maybe it is a setup issue. Or maybe I have to reset video resolution. I don't need Audio thru HDMI, just video and both monitors will have different resolutions. My org.chameleon.Boot.plist looks like this: <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" ""> <plist version="1.0"> <dict> <key>Credits</key> <string></string> <key>EthernetBuiltIn</key> <string>y</string> <key>GraphicsEnabler</key> <string>y</string> <key>Kernel Flags</key> <string>npci=0x2000 dart=0</string> <key>Timeout</key> <string>2</string> <key>UseKernelCache</key> <string>y</string> </dict> </plist>
