    Hi All,

    Has anyone had any luck getting DP3 to install. Mine just comes up with the grey screen and apple logo and sits there. I've tried from dvd and from an image file. Get the same thing. Even gave it 6 gb and 64 mb of video memory and no help. I've seen where others get it to install but I've tried multiple times trying multiple settings and no luck.

    Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated! Running V7 with latest updates.

    Change it to have 2 CPU's and 512mb of Video RAM and then it should start up fine.

    That did it. I suspect it was video ram required. I will try it with 1 proc and let the forum know.

    Thanks, I never would have thought to try that.
  5. What is the benefit of 512MB video RAM?

    I'm currently configured with 4 CPU's, 3GB RAM, and 256MB VRAM.
