Pretty straight forward process really.

I went through the same series of steps (except for using safe mode), and had the same result. I also initially installed the 280.26 driver patch prior to the slipatch 0.91, but then tried the other order after a clean 280.26 original driver install. I feel so close here- don't know what to do. This is my first attempt to ever enable SLI via a hack.
thx-

Jeremy

I feel ya man. Dont understand why this is so difficult.

So now Ive tried again following the entire uninstal/instal process, rebooting after every change. I also switched the order of installation for the driver patch & Sli Patch. I get to the boot screen. It gives two options.

1. Windows 7
2. Sli patch 2008 RC/Windows 7

Does this matter?

@Carcinogens choose Sli patch 2008 RC/Windows 7 to enable sli choose Windows 7
to disable sli.

Any news on hypersli patch?

Do I need to do this every time I boot to windows or just the once?

I know most of you guys must have way more experience with putting all of this together, and thank you for all the advice. I have a sneaking suspicion that maybe these two 460's I have are incompatible.

Card #1 is Zotac SE 768 megabyte 710MHZ 1800MHZ shader clock .975 volts
Card #2 is Zotac SE 768 megabyte 675 MHZ (lower shader clock, but exactly sure by how much) .987 voltage


I thought they were identical cards but it turns out they are slightly different. Anyone know if the different volts or clock is causing an incompatibility maybe?

You have always to choose Sli patch 2008 RC/Windows 7 to boot with Sli enabled.
