Collecting some data from macs, for pc_efi.

I found out that we can get rid of natit in some situotions.

to make this i need some info from real macs

to get this info make next commans

ioreg -l -w0 -p IODeviceTree | grep device-properties > dump.txt

compress dump.txt , upload it and post link to file in comments.

That would help  a lot.

Thank u guys for dumps. I just made my 2600XT works without natit, with 10.5.1 atindrv ! 😀

All keys set by pc_Efi, woot.

Also we got GeForce 8800 GTS /GTX to work this way!

P.S. we already have this dumps from MBP with gf8600 (15″ and 17″) and from MacBook. do not post dumps from this systems.

    tried macmini’s dump to get gma950 working – no luck

    guess it uses some osrt of internal conencters in macmini

    and we confirmed G80 cards work

    This looks very promising and is excellent news. Does this also mean that we might not need to add our vendorid/productid etc to various drivers? If that is the case, then that will help make software updates easier. Even if it is not the case it is still good.

    Will this EFI info relating to hardware need to be compiled into the secondary bootloader, or will the boot loader be able to read from a file just the EFI details needed for each users specific hardware?

    Just curious. In any case it is all very good news.

    So any chance for te 8600M-GS or the 8400M-GS to get working? I’m really wondering because I’m going to buy a new laptop soon with either of those cards and I want to know is osx would run on it with good support for those video cards.

    Please let me know someone, Thanks! 🙂

    Slakkur or SEEYOU, can you guys do a big favor to the creew ? 🙂
    Find some friends with PCI Ex cards, the most complicated to find, but used by osx, like the GF 8600 GT, 7900 GT, and plug it on the MacPro and get the string?

    Can be a goood contribution!!! THANKS!!!
