    Basically I've gone through about 5 days of torment and pain to install Snow Leopard 10.6.4 on VirtualBox, and having finally done it (and installed a legal version of Office 2008 and iLife 2011) I can't even bloody open iMovie! It tells me some crap about a Quartz enabled graphics card to use it or something and apparently mine isn't

    Okay so obviously GTX460 isn't a Mac compatible graphics card, but is there a way to work around this and get it enabled? I've read something about 'kexts' and supposedly there is some for my card so I need some help getting started if that's okay :)

    It's real important because I have a project that needs to be finished in iMovie and since my REAL mac broke this has to be done
    Thanks :D

    There have been no successes in getting the GTX 460 to work on Snow Leopard. The 465 (470 in disguise!), 470, and 480 all work, but not the 460.

    In otherwords, GF100 cards are supported, not GF104. Sorry!

    Well I mean watching videos on youtubve etc works fine so I guess it would be ok to try to edit videos

    its only light editing, but the project is only in iMovie
