Hi...first question, do you have an ethernet port that works? If so, I'd use that to get on the internet first. As far as getting wireless adapters working on a Hackintosh, this can be one of the most frustrating aspects of living with a Hackintosh. I have a TP-Link 851 (atheros 922x) wifi card. Can make it work easily with 10.6 with the Atheros21.kext but can't seem to get it working with 10.5...

If you can, please post specifics about your adapter (chipset, device ID, is it PCI or USB...)

Can you provide a little bit more information about the ports on the back of your video card? You say that you have a DVI port with a HDMI adapter plugged into it with the monitor plugged into that. Do you have 1 other port or 2 other ports? If so, what sort of ports are they? In my experience, a black screen on a hackintosh that is otherwise booting to desktop is a symptom of a video card that is routing video to someplace other than where you have your monitor plugged in.

I've had this experience with my ATI 4850 card, and solved it by plugging a DVI->VGA adapter (with nothing plugged into that) and a monitor plugged into the other DVI port.

Do you get video if you boot in safe mode with -x? Or never get it at all? You may also want to do a boot with the -v flag to see at what point you lose video.

10.6.8 broke video.

The machine would boot, but I think the screen would freeze with the gray apple and spinning beach ball (which would eventually freeze). I think what happened is that the machine completed booting but the screen froze in the process.

Ended up going into BIOS and changing my Thinkpad's T60 BIOS settings to a a PCIe video card from built in internal video. This enabled the machine to start up and work. Native resolution, no QE, but the video card is read as PCIe with 3megs of VRAM in system profiler (which it clearly isn't) and some video things (for instance, fonts in iWork) do not work.

Not sure what else to do to the kext/configuration to fix this.

Nothing like resurrecting a dead thread. Have any of you gone one to have success with the Mobility Radeon x1300 running under 10.6.8? This method doesn't seem to work for me on my Thinkpad T60 running the X1000 kexts from 10.6.8. (worked under 10.5.8)...
