I just dual booted my 2011 mac mini build to the T to Tony's guide. And I've been trying to get dual monitors to work using DVI and VGA. My system definition is a macmini 5,1 and im running 10.7.3. I can use 1 monitor which the DVI and the one with VGA has a grey apple logo that appears to be frozen with that spinning symbol. Any tips or info will help me greatly! thank you

VGA is unsupported. Try the HDMI port.

I have VGA monitor. I'm using it through VGA port on my GTS450. That works as yet :)

How did you get that working? I found some work arounds by changing the some hex numbers but cant seem to get that to work for me. but it is possible

His gfx card not his motherboard is what he means.
