Vostro 200 / Inspiron 530s with GeForce 210

already have an Inspiron 530s and didn't want to install a 610, what can be changed in the boot.plist to get a GeForce 210 to work and register correctly? I have been trying to find the correct string for it and can't figure it out.

 

It is NOT the ASUS silent card, but a different brand with 512MB.

GeForce G210 normally works with a simple GraphicsEnabler=Yes. If the card still does not register, you may have to patch your DSDT to add the card's details. You'd 1st extract the data from the output of IOREgistryExplorer app.

I got the thing to boot finally... having a kid running around makes it hard to sit down and hack stuff.

 

PCIRootUID=4 GraphicsEnabler=Yes

 

BIOS 22

 

SATA running Legacy

 

We'll see what happens now.

You would not need that PCI root parameter setting unless the UID of Device PCI0 was set to 4 in the default DSDT and, afaik, I don't believe this is the case on the Vostro 200 and/or the Inspiron 530s.

 

You should only need option GE=Yes with a GeForce G210.
