I can confirm that installing with Pacifist is a workaround for the VRAM problem and the Quartz Extreme error.

Why don't people who have this error instead of trying the pacifist workaround, actually go out and buy a better graphics card (unless your using a laptop).

I got a Nvidia geforce 7300gt old-ish card picked it up very cheap and supports quartz extreme.

I got logic work on my hackintosh, but when i click 'play' and drag mixer window - it's very jerky.
If sound stopped - drag work smooth.

What's wrong?

I have also logic 9 running on my hacintosh.

But after installing logic my sound is gone in I tunes.

When is start logic 9 en go to the audio options and choose "output 3-4" i hear the sound only on the left speaker and when i change it to "output 5-6" i only hear it the sound on the right speaker.

Does somebody have a solution for this?

I have a ASUS P5P800 motherboard with on an onboard AC97 soundcard.

Logic 9.02 working flawlessly in my Hack. Im using it together with Reason via Rewire with my good old M-Audio Delta 66. No Problems at all.


I had Logic 8 running before on my Kalyway 5.2 hack but I have now decided to get Logic 9 and am having problems installing it because of this dumb error:

vram is less than 64

ALsos Logic 9 requires minimum version 10.5.6 I think which I tried and had the same problem.

My gpu is ATI sapphire hd4850 512MB
I'm pretty sure its compatible lol.

core2duo e6600

Abit Ab9Pro

I have managed to force my gpu resolution to 1280x1024 via graphics mode at startup and my gpu is recognised in profiler properly but I keep getting this error which is really annoying.

Anyone know a reliable way (apart from the Pacifist method) to change my vram settings properly.

I am running SnowLeopard 10.6.2.

I'll probably end up changing my soundcard as I think the delta 1010 is not compatible anymore.

I run the Delta 1010 in my hack along with the Saffire Pro 10 i/o on 10.6.2 and it works very good

UPDATE: I have Logic Studio (Logic 9) running on my hack on Snow Leopard 6.2 finally.

I had to bypass the requirements checker to get it to install as my graphics card (ATI 4850) doesn't have QI/CE working yet and so it was not recognised (I was getting the 0 vram error).
If you have this problem basically unzip the setup file to your desktop and then open it and delete the requirement checking app.
Then you should be able to install no problem.

I should add that my M-Audio Delta1010 does work (Envy24), I can get sound in and out of it but I can hear some noise when I record through it. Its not a clean recording which is not good.
I think this is due to hacked drivers and not official ones as I'm using the Envy drivers.
I do not get this 'noise' when recording in windows so its not due to dust.

I also read that support for Delta series was dropped by M-Audio for OSX 6.2:

Link: http://www.m-audio.c.../Delta1010.html
Official M-Audio statement: http://www.m-audio.c...a5d5f4ef3da6903

I am in the process of researching a more updated and SL6.2 compatible audio interface.

Can I ask what drivers you are using to get your Delta1010 to run properly and have you recently done any recording throught it. Was there any signal or static noise?

I run the Delta 1010 in my hack along with the Saffire Pro 10 i/o on 10.6.2 and it works very good

Personally, i wouldn't even think about installing logic before sorting out graphics card issues and other necessary fixes, just as i wouldn't think about installing SL before checking hardware compatibility.

Using Logic Studio 9 with no problem on the hackintosh in my signature. Everything works 100%. It's the best!

I run Logic 9 on an old Asus P4 P800 se mobo with a P4 3 ghz cpu on Leo 10.5.1, works as good you can expect on an old comp like that but it works. I had an old Emagic Audio 5 Big Box sitting on the shelf that I upgraded so I´m testrunning it on this old guy first. On my main comp GA EP45 -DS3 Q6600 I still run Logic Pro 8 on SL 101.6.2 32 bit cause there are no 64 bit drivers for my Saffire Pro 10 i/o yet.

Both my Delta 1010 and my Delta 44 works like they should with the Envy24 driver no noises here at all. I can even use both the Saffire Pro and the Delta in the same comp at the same time. When I broadcast I use the Delta to take the sound in to the stream and the Saffire to listen.

Sometimes you don't know how stable something is going to be until you run it.
All I knew was that Logic was not seeing my GPU but there may have been other problems so installing was one way to find out.

Turns out there wasn't any other problems (so far, fingers crossed) and I can get on with making music rather than faffing around with kexts.

This is not my first osx86 install (done about a dozen trying to get my GPU recognised to no avail) but also I am no expert. I simply wanted a running system that works with what I have and it does that so I'm happy even without QI/CE. I don't intend on playing chess anyway. This is just a DAW for me, nothing else (I have win7 64bit for everything else).

Back to the Logic, today I finally had some time to setup a couple of mics and was planning on doing some recording in both windows and Logic to try and work out what my 'fuzz' problem is. Well it turned out to be a dodgy preamp on my desk, nothing to do with Logic, Envy24 or osx86 at all.

So everything is working fine now.
The delta 1010 is still missing its visual mixer (just shows input levels etc) but I'm not that bothered about that.

new here.
im planning to buy mac and logic maybe its good idea to give it a try on a hackintosh first. id like to try logic 9.1.1 in 64 bit mode so i need 10.6.2, right?
i went through most of the install guides etc but my case is a bit specific.
i want 2 partitions on my hdd: one with windows xp sp3, the other osx 10.6.2.
some tutorials stated that not worth messing with complete distribs. instead do it with the original 10.6 dvd then update with apple update to 10.6.2
some are stating that a "real" mac is needed but some states those are not required. this already confuses me.
i dont want to go the mac way, i'd like to do it all on this machine.
its an
asus p5gc-mx1333
2g ram
intel 945GC(A2)/ICH7 integrated video
novation nio usb soundcard
sata hdd
tplink pci wlan
8gb pendrive

can i dual boot? what loader is the best for that? chameleon rc4 maybe?
will it work out of the box? i doubt it..
i suspect i'd need 64bit kexts for the intel vga and he tplink wlan card since i have to do the update via internet.
this is where i am at. please someone correct me if i am wrong and of course any further advice much appreciated!
thanks

To make it easier just use two harddrives instead, one for each os. Saves you a whole lot of troubles. Check out your hard ware works ok with osx first and then pick the tutorial that´s closest to the gear you have.

didn't know it was that hard to get it running. Had Logic 9 running on my current hackintosh under 10.5.6 since it came out.

Maybe I will stumble into problems (although hopefully not!) when I do it on my new lappy next week running 10.6.2 (or .3 if its out by then). fingers crossed!

It´s not always easy to make it happen only installing osx so what I mean is start with that and then if you find it necessary check out dualboot. It´s no harder than press F8 or what´s the command for your mobo if want to switch between harddrives during bootup.

Another thing is you have to read up on having two different filesystems on the same harddrive. It can be done for sure no question about that but me personally I can´t see no big use for it. Just think about safety issues, if you get virus on your win partition you might end up having to reformat the whole drive.

About 64 bit drivers for SL make sure they have them already for your soundcard. I have the Saffire Pro 10 i/o and Focusrite seems to be a bit slow in that matter so still no 64 bit drivers for mac anyway.

They refer to big companys like Apple (probably microsoft too) as third party software makers I mean just makes me laugh do they really expect apple to adapt to them hehe.

I installed SL using one of these boot 132 discs for SL that came out here pretty early after SL was released. Took a while to figure out how to do it though but in the end it showed to be the easiest way, to me anyway.

It´s a while now since I did it but I can try to refigure how I did it and what kext and stuff I use. No need for that usb stick, you just do a basic install and reboot with the dvd, fix your kexts, add the dsdt.aml (just run fassls program and you´re done, really easy) and chameleon if you want it/need it. Reboot again and your done. Make sure you have your 64 bit kexts for all you need them for if your going for SL 64 bit.

One thing I remember specific is leave the printers out when you install or else it would probably panic, it did for me and lots of others. If you need them you can install them later.

Good luck

You don't have to reformat the whole drive even if you have the most hardcore rootkit virus on your windows partition.
And what's the problem with having different filesystems on same physical hard drive, like bootcamp?

thanks much! this is the most useul info on forums so far. looks like better to stuck on 32 bit and i had no virus in the last 10 years so... go with DB.

decided to go this route:
vanilla 10.6 dvd
+
http://osx86sv.wordp...es-motherboard/
+
http://wiki.osx86pro...imple_Dual_Boot

pretty easy and then i will hunt down additional kexts if needed.
im not sure about the last step (dual boot) it states simple method but i doubt its the simplest.. not written for th snow leo but i hope it will work.

if the above is correct then one last question:why should i have chameleon installed after that? what are the advantages of it in my case?
