Reinstalling OS X on a G5 with an nVidia 6800 Ultra
Authored by: lemurs on Jan 21, '05 12:00:36AM

i've booted my 6800 ultra card and 30 inch screen off of my g5 install cd, hardware test cd, and retail panther cd all without any problem. in all of that i might have had one panic in about 20 or 30 boots on systems which do not have the nvidia driver technically in them. this was all in the course of diagnosing the cracked screen on my first 30inch and apple was surprised that it would boot off of those other system disks. go figure, as they were also just as surprised that i could run the 30 inch on my powerbook mini, just at a much lower res.
