The card is recognized as far as the AGP port goes. This port has CI and QE enabled. The DVI port isn't recognized. With a custom EFI string in boot.plist all works well.
Code: [Select]

What I did:
  • Removed the string from the boot.plist
  • Turned the GraphicsEnabler to TRUE
  • Rebooted
What happend:
  • -System booted as normal, however only the VGA display came on (I have dual display setup with one on VGA, the other on DVI)
  • System Profiler reports QE and CI enabled for VGA display
  • Also reports that there is no display connected to the second port
Creation of working EFI string:
  • -use OSx86 Tools
  • choose "Add EFI Strings/Boot Flag"
  • choose "GFX Strings"
  • choose "Custom GeForce hex"
  • enter "Asus EN7300GT"
  • choose "256MB"
  • choose "VGA / DVI-I" - note vice versa does not work!
  • the result:
Code: [Select]

What I did:
  • Removed the string from the boot.plist
...

Just to make sure, you need to remove the whole entry, so no "device-properties" key is found in the plist.

I checked it just to be sure. All info is gone from the boot.plist and GraphicsEnabler is set to Yes.
