I recently added an EVGA Nvidia GT220 graphics card to my 2008 Xserve 2.1 running OSX Lion. I can't install Final Cut because the system has the original Radeon X1300 as the default card with only 64mb of ram. How do I get the Bios and OSX to load the Nvidia card as the primary card?

Thanks for any help

Remove the ATI/AMD Radeon card.
Install the GT220 in its place.
Boot with -v -f UseKernelCache=No

Note you might also need GraphicsEnabler=Yes for the GT220. This I am not entirely sure of.
