iBoot-GE also failed to work for me with my EVGA 460GTX 768.
Had to use The iBoot 2.5.2 in safe mode in order to get to the install screen. Otherwise I would get "you must restart" everytime.

Once installed and updated, boots just fine in rc5 and recognizes the card in system profiler. Get about 24fps in CB. I'll still be using win7 until things are more stable.

For all of those with a EVGA GTX 460 that is not recognized in System Profiler, I think I may have a solution. My EVGA GTX 460 1GB is recognized in system profiler, and works great. Full QE/CI at 1080p. Now a while back in windows, I applied EVGA's Free Performance Boost to my card(Jumped the core clock from 675 to 720, memory likewise). It may be this new BIOS that is being recognized. If you haven't already, I suggest you try it.

I have only one problem, and that is with my mouse pointer. Instead of the regular black mouse with white outline, it is a soft blue with no outline at all. It seems that the image for the mouse isn't loading correctly or something. It would work before, but after I changed to the correct settings in the displays prefpane, it is not blue all of the time. If I play a game, it will turn the color of the game background or something like that. Any ideas?

Dual-display isn't working for me either. This has been a headache with the random freezes and now this issue. Anyone have any ideas as to how to fix this problem?

I'm waiting for one Asus GTX 580 graphic card, maybe next week here and cross my finger for installation.
Now my Asus GTX 275 work fine before and after the NVidia driver patch (CineB score around 30 in 64 bit kernel)...

This is a know issue in Chameleon and should be fixed in a future release.

Fresh install, following the instructions posted at top of the thread.

Started up Sims 3 (I know, I know...) and locked up after a few seconds of gameplay.

Cinebench is 24 FPS.

Any hope of this being used for any games?

Got the resolution fixed, but the description of the card in the system profiler is incorrect. It says unknown Nvidia card. I only have RC5 installed and no NVEnabler.

Specs:
i7 950
GTX 470

How can I get the card recognized?

For those that wanted to know. I got the EVGA GTS 450SC working following the procedure in this thread. I was able to boot with 64 bit mode as well. Nothing special except using the option for 64 bit with graphics enabler in MultiBeast. So far so good.
