Last night, I decided to take the Hackintosh plunge and threw Snow Leopard on my dv7t notebook. It took enabling the Chameleon USB fix to get a keyboard and mouse to work, and it took locating 64-bit VoodooPS2 kexts to get the built in keyboard and touchpad to work, but it works great.

The Natit kext works best to enable QE on my laptop's video card (to be perfectly honest, I forget the exact model at the moment), and VoodooHDA allows my IDT High Definition Audio to work nicely.

The only things that don't work are wireless (Intel 5100, no surprise there), the built-in webcam, and putting the computer to sleep.

The webcam is detected, but Photo Booth won't do anything with it. I haven't had a chance to try Skype yet, but I wouldn't be surprised if the results were similar.

When I try to put the computer to sleep, it seems like the hard drive spins down, and the screen goes black, but not much else seems to happen. It never finishes going to sleep, and as such, I can't wake it back up. It's caught in some sort of limbo.

Any tips or tricks to get the webcam and/or sleep mode working? I've been searching all around last night and was up until 3:30 AM trying to figure it out, but I had to put myself to sleep so I could function at work (where I currently am at).

Thanks.

I've just tried SleepEnabler.kext to fix the sleep issue, but it had no effect.

The latest release of Chameleon is playing nice with all power management features, except for sleep mode. I haven't done any DSDT hacks, as I'm kind of nervous to do so. What would anyone recommend?

I've decided to start from scratch, as trying to install a driver from ##### trashed my system, and it looks like I'm going to have to start from scratch again.

GraphicsEnabler=Yes worked great instead of having to use Natit, but I still need VoodooHDA for my sound. I went to install it from #####, and it trashed my system again. It just will not boot now, but rather, it hangs.

Using a -v boot, I sometimes get "SerialATAPI device reconfiguration did not complete successfully failedcommandinfo = 0x1", and sometimes I don't get anything indicating an issue.

I'll be refreshing my system again, this time not using ##### for anything.

I take it back. I found that deleting an empty Extensions folder in /Extra fixed my boot issue.
