Issue 224: GraphicsEnabler fails when using EFI string

Reported by Francesco buoo, Feb 28, 2012

The GraphicsEnabler doesn't work when I use an EFI string to inject 
something for other devices, for example like this

I'm sure there aren't conflicts with DSDT or something else intact 
if I delete the EFI string it works good.

Lion 10.7.3
Revision 1839
Asus P8Z68 Deluxe
XFX Radeon 6870

I think you need to use either/or and not both together.

So if you want to use a device properties string then try including 
your video in that also. For your 6870, see if this helps:

Thanks blackosx :)
I'm using this injection and I haven't 
problem, but I'd like to use the GraphicsEnabler because I get a 
better benchmark result (480FPS vs 407FPS).
I extracted the chameleon injection but 
if I try to add it in my EFI string I get the hell broke loose.

Excuse me those values are wrong. I get the same results.

So you have everything working from the device properties string as 
you want?. Let me know and I'll close this issue.

Ok Blackosx you can close the topic.
If it's not a problem for you, could you explain me why if I add 
right this chameleon injection in my 
EFI string the system doesn't boot?

Hi buoo

Okay. I'll close this issue.

As for your question, all I can suggest is you double check the 
contents of the plist and then re-make the hex string. Check fassl's 
topic at ProjectOSX for device-properties string info incase you've 
missed something.

If you're still stuck then raise a post at the voodooproject's forum 
and maybe we can look further in to it. However, I've only used 
nvidia cards and not ATI so I might not be of much help to you. :)
