    That makes sense. It's just more reason to get power management working right and to stick with hardware that's as close to real Macs as possible to avoid having to make such low level mods.

    I just wanted to add physically, in the hardware, make sure your first GPU (atleast one of them) is plugged into the PCIEX16 because if it's plugged into an x8 or an x4 then it will not run correctly and you'll get the black screen! X16 is generally the one closest to the CPU! You may need an extender depending on how bulky your GPU/CPU Cooler is/are. That's what I ended up doing. Just sharing some knowledge that took me weeks to find to help out the next guy or gal.

    NvidiaGraphicsFixup is superseded by WhateverGreen.
    Using them together is not supported and will lead to undefined behaviour.
    Make sure you use the latest versions of Lilu and WhateverGreen.
