Hello everyone, i have successfully installed osx mavericks booting with chameleon and have full graphics acceleration, wireless(with usb) and audio.
My main problem that whenever i connect a display to my hdmi port it freezes osx. and i still need to boot with cpu=1 any ideas?
Ive tried graphicsenabler=yes/no installing web drivers (which i dont think the gtx250 needs) and a combination of boot flags
I can load vanilla wow on max settings and it runs perfectly at 105 fps, so graphics work otherwise



  • Intel Core 2 Duo P7450 (2.13 GHz)
  • NVIDIA GeForce GTX 260M- displays properly is about this mac
  • Sytem shows as early 2008 mac pro

so i discovered the webdriver only works with10.9.5 and i am running 10.9 updateing from app store and if that doesnt work i will try installing 10.10. i have everything else working well so hopefully i can figure this out, i wasnt booting with graphicsenabler=yes but there was a line in the chameleon plist that had the option on, i changed it from yes to no and osx loaded fully but to a black screen. changed it back to "yes" and i could get back to my os
