    Hey guys,

    I was hoping one of you with the new mbp with the nvidia 8600 could help me out.

    I want to take my 8800 out of my pc and put it in my mac pro. I am hoping the new 8600 drivers that come on the mbp will work for it with titan. The program the pc users are using to make their video cards work on hacked copies of osx.

    Anyway if one of you can get them for me they would be under /system/library/extensions and it would be anything with nv in or or named nvidia.

    Thanks so much
    If it would be easier you can catch me on aim. My screen name is equinox654

    Well that's ambitious. Are you willing to risk such an expensive computer for that sort of upgrade ?

    I wasn't even AWARE you could take a PC desktop video card and put it into a Laptop, much less an apple laptop. Did I miss something here?

    *face palm*

    They're going to try to use the kernel extensions for the 8600M in an attempt to get an 8800 to work in a Mac Pro.

    Ahh yes, I just saw MBP and then my mind glazed over. And here I was thinking you were going to do something amazing :p

    Oh well, good luck.

    I have the same aim as the OP, so if anyone with a shiny new MPB could take 2 mins to post/upload those kexts, I'd also be extremely grateful!

    They would be under /system/library/extensions and are named something like:

    GeForce.kext
    NVDANV10Hal.kext
    NVDANV20Hal.kext
    NVDANV30Hal.kext
    NVDANV40Hal.kext
    NVDANV50Hal.kext

    (basically anything that looks like Geforce or Nvidia)

    Thanks

    Please get in touch with me (PM) if you have 10 minutes to help us with this (ie. send a couple of files). Tons of people have Geforce 8x00s lying around and would hopefully benefit from this.

    Cheers!
