Hi Guys,

Just piece of info that may be of use to someone - As you yanks say, YMMV etc. ;)

I have a Z87N board running dual monitors via an ASUS GT640 card.

After updating to 10.9.2, my first problem was getting it to boot past the grey screen.

This was solved by setting GraphicsEnabler=Yes (yes, I know this is contrary to how it 'should be', and indeed how I had it for 10.9.1)

My next problem was getting my graphics card to power both monitors. This was eventually solved by setting PCIRootUID=1.

Oh, and I already had IGPEnabler set to No.

Hope this helps someone. I now have fully working dual monitor setup! :D
