Hi guys!

I just yesterday managed to finally boot SL 10.6.1 (vanilla with some modified kexts for my mobo) but the only issue I am having is that my UAD-2 card is flashing red/green (even with the latest drivers installed). This is hopeless as I am only trying hackintosh to see if Logic benefits from the extra processor speed over my 2006 Mac Pro.

Has anyone else experienced this? In my Mac Pro it was working 100% fine. I have tried various PCI/E slots in my motherboard to no avail - is there some BIOS setting that must be set in order for it to work?

I had to set my BIOS to ACPI enabled as well as AHCI could this be the culprit?

My specs:

ASUS P5K-E Wifi/AP
Intel Core2Duo E8400 @ 4.40Ghz
4GB Corsair Dominator PC8500 @ 976Mhz
NVIDIA GTX 285
UAD-2 Solo Nevana 32 PCI-E card
Be Quiet! Dark Power 850W PSU
Custom watercooled Silverstone TJ07

Thanks in advance

Tom

OK so it seems to be an issue with 64 bit Snow Leopard. If any of you guys get the same trouble boot into 32 bit mode instead and all will be fine :)

Yes, please divulge info :D

My GA-EP45-UD3R won't recognize my UAD1 or UAD2 and Lynx AES16 cards using SL 10.6.1 ;)

then you are the one and only on earth - there is still no 64bit driver available.
maybe I´m wrong and you are a beta tester? ;)

@OftheSeven

do you use dsdt? dsdt compiled with a new hpet on some boards avoids the recognition of the uad cards - especially uad-1´s

compile it without the hpet option

To clear things out...
The UAD card will not be recognized when booting with 64 bit kernel and most likely most of your external stuff won´t work neither.
UA has not released 64 bit drivers yet.

So, booting with 64 bit kernel is kind of meaningless nowadays and years to come.
Both Leopard and Snow Leopard are already 64 bit OS`s even though you are booting with the 32 bit kernel.
So to get advantage of the 64 bit Logic version, just boot with 32 bit kernel and "show info" on the Logic 9.1 app and make the right settings.

The default kernel mode for real Macs is 32 bit but for Hacks it is 64 bit, just make sure you boot with the 32 bit kernel and you will be fine.

Hi,

I cant get my UAD-1 PCI to work in 64 or 32 bit Snow Leopard.
I tried to make new DSDT but still no luck.
It was working great in 1.5.x.
Please help!

Gigabyte P35-DS4
Q6600
ATI 4870 1GB
RME HDSP9632 - Working

I used this install method
http://www.insanelym...howtopic=195248

no, how do I do that, just delete it or?

I have tried to compile new DSDT without hpet option but I did it from current system, and
I am not sure is that allowed... anyway its good to know that you have working UAD-1!

what UAD software version are you using, latest v550?

Thanks

Yes, sorry, my mistake.

The card works fine in 32 bit mode, not 64 bit...

I thought I was in 64 bit mode once and it was working, but I was in fact in 32 bit mode...

Sorry for any confusion!

Hi

i'm sorry in wrong english.

i use GA-EP45-UD3R from Kakewalk.

firewire can be used without trouble.
but i cant use PCI and PCI-e for using UAD-2.

i tryed to boot X58A-UD3R.

it came to be able to use uad-2.

but it becomes impossible to use firewire this time.

is this problem solved if it does very?
