Upgraded to 10.6.2 using software update. Made mods suggested on netkas.org but had multiple kernel panics on restart. Re-installed MyHack with SleepEnabler.kext unchecked. Restarted and everything seems fine now.

How did you reinstall the myhack? Did you have to redo the usb stick without sleepenabler, boot with the usb, then reinstall to system HD? Just curious how you fixed it when you were getting kp's

You should be able to startup off of any working startup drive (USB or HardDrive - I don't think it needs to be an SL drive), run MyHack from there and point the install towards your SL drive. Select all the same extensions you previously used but don't select SleepEnabler.kext. That's it.

Thanks, just tryin to think about the best way to do it without having to take out the drive and put it in another machine to fix.. It's a real PITA to get to.

Re-did my install using myHack and it worked great. Got everything working at this point except sleep.

I have an AirLink wireless N PCI card and didn't have any problem getting it running after using the STA_RT2860 D-1.0.0.0a UI-1.4.8.0_2007_11_26 installer for Tiger.

Thanks much swinte for the myHack find. we're solidly in SL now.

For sleep have you tried moving your USBPWR jumper. Its on the motherboard near the yellow/black 4pin plug. Thats what got sleep working for me but I'm just running 10.5.8 retail install.

Great find! I'll have to give this a shot tonight in Snow Leopard. I've been busy with other projects for a couple weeks and haven't had a chance to play with this board much lately.

Out of curiosity, were there any BIOS settings that you had to tweak? Also, what BIOS version are you running?

Does anyone tried MyHack with MBR partition? I would like to install Windows 7 and Snow Leopard, so i need MBR - not GUID. Does work with MBR? It´s the same (functionality, speed of disc) MBR and GUID?

Thanks...

Genius! I've been trying to get my hackintosh to sleep for a year - searching all over the web for a solution. Nothing worked, until I tried this! All the mobo manual says about this jumper is that you need to switch it if you want your mouse/kbd to be able to wake the computer. When I first looked at it, I just assumed that switching it would be something that would prevent the computer from sleeping, as opposed to helping it sleep. A bit counter-intuitive... how did you figure it out?

Doesn't work for me. If I pull down the Apple Menu and select Sleep it will go to sleep right away and the only way to revive it is by shutting down with the power button and restarting. Does Sleep work for you when it's initiated through the Apple menu?

What your describing is exactly how my hackintosh would act before I tried moving this jumper setting perhaps it was already in that spot you can try moving it back and see if there's any change in the sleep state. also you can try in bios to change the sleep setting to S3 only. and you can also try enabling or disabling Legacy USB. The way I stumbled upon this fix was that on the ASUS P5L-VM 1394 board this jumper move was suggested to get sleep working on it so one day when I had the case open on my ECS I said what the heck here's that same type jumper I wonder if it might fix it on this board as well and bamm! sleep started working on reboot. Like I said I am NOT on Snow Leopard I am on 10.5.8 so I cannot say if SL will break sleep. Also it is a retail boot 132 install of 10.5.x so not sure if any added or removed kext could also affect it working. There are also the bios settings t regarding anything that has to do with sleeping and waking that might be played with I'd make sure that anything that has to do with enabling the keyboard or mouse to wake computer be enabled.

I tried this trick and sleep is now working for me as well! That was the last missing piece for me, my system is now working pretty much perfectly.

Anyone else have this happen (I wouldn't necessarily call this a problem- just interesting).. That is, the dvd drive randomly spins up as if the OS is trying to take inventory of whats in the drive, even if it's empty.. Very minor thing, but would like to get it to stop if possible.. Probably happens once an hour I'd say.

OSXtotheZ - What BIOS are you using? swinte said he is using the hacked BIOS. What's yours?

All right!

Finished installing from retail DVD. Did the same as swinte, and when updating to 10.6.2, as expected, it crashed due to SleepEnabler.kext. Reinstalled MyHack without SleepEnabler, and booted. Using a 9400GT, worked out of the box. The AirLink101 AWLH6080 works fine with drivers from Ralink, no problems there.
Bluetooth works fine, all USB ports are working, patched sound with voodoohda using Kexthelper. Just finished moving over applications and fixing serials etc for all of them, doing a full backup now.

No sleep though, other than that it works perfectly fine.

I am a noob in Mac OS. I followed myHack Installer Guide rev. 7 (http://osx86.sojugarden.com/installer/) trying to install SL 10.6 on my Dell Vostro 400 desktop. When booted from the prepared USB drive, Mac OS X installer only saw the USB drive. Going to the BIOS, there's no AHCI mode in SATA mode (only IDE or RAID). Have found and downloaded IOATAFamily.kext from the internet but didn't know how to install it onto the USB drive. Can someone help me out ? TIA.



EDIT: I copied IOATAFamily.kext into \Extra\Extensions folder on my USB, but Mac OS X installer still disn't see my SATA HDD.
