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?


what? i use radeon 4850 since osx 10.5.6 (im corrently in 10.6.2) and i never have problems... just edit the the right kext and you have her full activated

in pc of my sign i have logic 9.1.1 + reaktor 5 + reason 4 + ableton suite 8.1.1 and almoust all vst and vsti existent for osx (160GB)

i dont have a single problem :D

PS: i have almost all audio appz for osx instaled (last versions) like traktor pro dj etc and 0 problems all my pc acts like a real mac , all parts 100% activated

Mine too even have two 7300 gs 512 mb pcie videocards, a Black Magic Intensity Pro videocapture card, the Saffire Pro 10 i/o FW soundcard, the Delta 44 soundcard (Two soundcards for best sound since I´m broadcasting web tv) , Logic, Reason, Harrison Mixbus, Parrallels for Win xp. I can even record live online to my web tv channel from Logic all plugins running like Adictive drums git plugins etc etc. So Hackmacs can do it for sure.

WHat is the right kext?

Everyone is so keen to state what they have working and very little explanation about how.
Its easy to say 'yep everything working fine here', why haven;t you written a guide for 4850 users if its so easy as I have read and followed all the 4850 related posts and there isn't a decent guide.

So thanks for the advice but are you just boasting or do you actually want to help? :)

I did what I had to do to get Logic 9 running and it works fine just no QI/CE on my 4850 but running at 1280x1024 resolution and no graphics problems. SOmetimes the monitor will goto sleep but I think thats a different problem as I get this on my Windows boot too (overheating unless I turn my cooling fans up - I keep them low because I like quiet when making music).

Thanks I think I already tried that legacyATI controller but I will give it another go.

I appreciate any tips, but people just saying it works for me and no help gets annoying after a while.

Scroll down this page says something about kext for your video card http://netkas.org/


Im using :

*latest PC EFI 10.6
*LegacyATIcontroller.kext in Extra/Extensions
*ATI4800controller.kext in Extra/Extensions

Still no QI/CE

I hear you think the same. Sorry I can´t help with this I have 7300 gs cards think I never tried ati cards.

I had to edit the plist to change the configuration of type of ports in the NVinjekct.kext I use to get my 7300 cards working with QE. Rigthtklick on it show package content open Contents then open the plist with a texteditor. I did this by changing the NVCAP to match the ports on my cards (VGA + DVI). I mean maby there are lots of different combinations/configs port types also for the ATI 4850. If you think this could be the case for you too let me know and I´ll try to find that site again where found that info.

Here´s my thread how I did it

so far:

used this method:

http://osx86sv.wordp...es-motherboard/

everything went well
i did everyhing as described except the kexts. i thought i will do it myself later.
i can boot from cd then had some issues with display. it runs only in 1024x768
the wifi worked but its strange. it recognizes my tp.link pci card as airport but only enables in every second and third boot. sometimes more often. seems a bit random.
installed chameleon 2.0 rc4
then i could boot without the cd but the boot stopped at the apple image and the stick keeps rollin as a progress bar but nothing happens.

the i booted again from cd and check for apple software update.
updated some of the components az well as from 10.6.0 to 10.6.3 (out today i think)
reboot. nothing!

it can still boot from cd
so i used the kext helper and added all of the extensions in the .zip package.
now i cant boot from cd, not hdd.
stops at the apple image.

can anyone help?
i have tired sudo nvram boot-args="-v" to see what happens at startup but it gives still only the apple image.
seems like i am a bit far from running logic:S

You need to give us more info about your hardware.

One thing I can say now though is you should stay away from installing the printers that will probably give you a KP. Leave them, if you want them just install them later.

Check out this thread this is what I used in combination with fasls dstd pathcer and drhurts chameleon package, took a while to figure it out. Look for my posts it´s actually really easy when you get the hang of it.
For your videocards to run full resolution you might need a specific kext.

Ok you´re welcome hmm strange people think they can ask for help not even doing their own bit nor say thanks.

thanks starobrno1:)

i try to give you every info i know:

first my system:

asus p5gc-xm1333 motherboard
c2d 2.66 cpu
2g ddr2 ram
gma950 vga (i used one kext from kexts.com but no luck)
usb microsoft keyboard and mouse
novation nio usb soundcard
pci tplink wifi card
sata 250gb hdd and sata dvd drive

what i did:

made two guid partitions named OSX1 and OSX2
installed retail dvd 10.6.0 onto OSX1

now i reinstalled the dvd using that boot cd i mentioned.
its a boot132 darwin made by psystar

no sound out of the nio soundcard
1024x768 resolution
wifi sometimes work sometims not. if not, then i cant turn on airport, i need to reboot

installed chameleon with sucess, it can boot from hdd but at the apple image it stops booting onto the user interface. i think its not the bootloaders fault but im missing something

i dont really care about sleep function and stuff, i always disable these even in windows
i just would like to hear sound out of nio, 1280x1024 resolution and install logic 9.
with the vanilla thingy as less additional kext as possible

what additional infos could i deliver?
should i post this into the vanilla snow topic instead?

if i choose verbose boot in chameleon 2.0 rc4 i get this error message at the end.



Posted Image

then i used dsdt patcher gui
some tutorials say that i should place the generated .aml in the root or the extra
i had no /extra (yes i enabled hidden fiiles but still no) so i created one and placed there too

no changes

update:

finally got it to work
chameleon can boot from hdd when i install some kexts from extensions.zip but not all
these:
fakesmc.kext
legacyappleahciport.kext

but the poblem is
no wifi under 64 bit (this is default by chameleon)
and i cannot use GMA kexts because it runs only in 32 bit kernel mode
if i force to boot in 32 bit then cant boot

if there is a way i could boot in 32 bit then i'll be fine and would share a mini guide
i'm so close!:D

It took me about a week solid of researching and reinstalling till I got mine to work as I was also new to osx86 stuff.
I can't really give you a solution as I'm no pro at this either but just keep at it, you will get there eventually as long as your hardware allows which it seems it does.

For sound take a look at the envy24 stuff (link in my sig), it may or may not help (helped with my maudio soundcard).
Also there may be a boot command to startup in 32bit mode if thats going to help.

Good luck with that and keep at it.

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.


If one can afford the luxury of sorting out graphics issues beforehand then yes, fine.

However, when you have a laptop where no QE solution exists, then the workaround methods are the only ones which matter.

Thanks to the guys who posted solutions for Logic install for non QE cards! (Pacifist install method and some others).
