    did you have self add extra extensions?
    because i saw this:
    Code:
    Sep 20 12:44:32 localhost kernel[0]: NVDA,Display-A: Not usable
    Sep 20 12:44:32 localhost kernel[0]: NVDA,Display-B: Not usable
    and did you connect a extra hdd? because it has disk1Sx. normally it should be disk0Sx it seems there is something problem with NTFS partition/disk

    No extra extension added.
    I have copied your Extra folder to the my mountain lion disk.

    I have 4 HDD on my system. One is lion, one is windows 7, one is mountain lion and another one with data.

    But I think it should be something with the VGA that you mentioned before.

    maybe redicules, but maybe disconnect the sata connection from your other device and give me then the logs?

    Appart from this.
    did your DSDT enclose your VGA device id etc? if yes then maybe that would be the problem.
    I have googled and found others that face the same problem with other nvidia vga and they suggest to substitue the device id on the nvidia kext and then it should work.

    What do you think?

    normally not, DSDT from my files has only patches for the motherboard.
    this should be the patch: http://blog.vondroid.com/?p=1152

    Correct the DSDT is for the MB.
    Then most probably your vga is compatible with the stock nvidia kexts.
    I will try to add my device id on the nvidia kexts.

    Indeed that was the problem.
    Now I am writing you from Mountain lion. But the GPU is not fully enabled.

    I have input my dev id in the nvidia kexts, but it's not recognized correctly.
    it is recognized as nvidia card with 5Mb ram and as you can imagine I can only use basic features for now.

    If you have any further thought for fixing it tell me and I will give it a try.

    I didn;t understand what you wrote.

    I am trying hard to find how to enable my VGA but still no luck.
    Aso I have found out that your dsdt file includes your vga, it's somewhere 1383 line. I have also changed this, but still not luck.

    Any further help will be highly appreciated. I am so close to make everything work.

    i'm try to give you a gfx string but i'm need to following information:
    Card name?
    How much mb of gpu?
    Connectors? Dvi + vga? Dvi+dvi?

    and if you run this application in terminal with following command

    Code:
     gfxutil -f display
    What for result did you got?
    look like something like this:
    Code:
    PciRoot(0x0)/Pci(0x1,0x0)/Pci(0x0,0x0)

    The card name is nVidia 9600 GT with 512 Mb Ram
    It has dvi + dvi connectors.

    my GFX is exactly the same like yours.

    Code:
    PciRoot(0x0)/Pci(0x1,0x0)/Pci(0x0,0x0)

    I will dissapoint you, but even this won't work.

    If I put the string on boot.plist with the modified kexts I am getting the same 5Mb non recognized card. If I remove the modified kexts and use the stock then I am getting the same problem with the black screen.

    </dict>
    </plist>
    the device id is 0x0622
    the revision is 0x00a1
    and the Vendor is nVidia (0x10de)

    and the kexts that I use are the below:


    Is there any possibility to use Lion kexts?

    maybe only use default kext files otherwise the gfx-string in boot.plist is override and will not be executed.
    what for value did you got in apple --> about --> system report --> Graphic/display maybe screenshot?

    Normally Lion kext aren't compatible. I've also try them before. But some kext like appleHDA are optimised for Mountain Lion

    I can give you a Lion screen shot ot my graphic adapter.
    From the ML I can't open them since I used the stock kext of Installation.

    I have also tried to put graphic enabler to "No" together with the device-properties as I saw on another forum, but that didn't work either.

    I will put the "edited" kexts and open ML to post a screen shot from there.

    It seems that he gfx-string is totally not running...
    are you sure you have only mountain lion on 1 hdd? and the bootloader charmeleon is installed on that hdd?
    (to be sure it boot on that disk with the correct partition)

    Try then this efi-string:
    maybe using other pciRoot: PciRoot(0x1)/Pci(0xe,0x0)/Pci(0x0,0x0) with the following gfx-string
    Code:
     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
