Can't find Broadcom BCM5751 Ethernet kext

16 August 2010 - 06:04 AM

I was able to install 10.6.3 without much fuss and at this point I need to connect to the internet. I can't get any internet setting at all (All my choices are greyed out) so I believe I need a kext for a Broadcom BCM5751 built in ethernet port. The exact model according to the hardware info utility in the OSx86 distro I used is: Broadcom NetXtreme BCM5751 Gigabit Ethernet PCI Express.

If someone can please point me in the right direction of the kext I need and how exactly to install it, I'd be very greatful. :)

OSx86 installation help, please. =)

I've been messing with this stuff with virtual machines for a long time now, I have experience with native installs, but I need help with this install.

I'm trying to install on a Dell XPS 710. My specs according to CPU-Z are below:

Processor: Intel Core 2 Duo E6600
Motherboard chipset: nForce4 SLI Intel Edition
Southbridge: nForce 570 SLI
GPU: GeForce 8600 GTS
Hard drives: I have SATA and IDE drives. I want to install to the IDE drives.

If you need more info, let me know.

My problem is, when I'm loading the installer for OSx86 Snow Leopard, I keep getting a still waiting for root device. After looking around, I believe I need a patched AppleNForceATA file to match my chipset and a way to add it to my OSx86 installer. I need assistance finding such a file and putting it in the installer. If that's not my problem, what is it? :( That's my only problem at this current point, but I may come across more when/if this particular problem is resolved. If so, I'll let you know.

If you can help me, I'd greatly appreciate it. :) And if you need more info about anything, please ask. I have an actual need for OS X Snow Leopard and I'd like to get this set up as soon as possible. (No, I can't afford a real mac just yet. :P )


Need assistance

Hello. I'm trying to get Leopard to work on my Dell Dimension 8400. I've installed it just fine with iATKOS v7, but when I try to launch OS X, it just hangs on the white apple logo screen forever. When I load with the -v flag, it shows that everything just stops, and I get a black screen.

I've attached the output from CPU-Z to the post to give my specs.

I have absolutely no idea what to do at this point. I'm clueless. Any help? Thanks in advance! :)
