No boot in 32 bit

08 September 2009 - 04:07 AM

My desktop hack (specs to follow) boots into 64 bit flawlessly and runs like a champ with no issue. Sleep, shutdown, wake, QE/CI, all works great.

However, I am unable to boot into 32 bit mode. The initial problem seems to be AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement (which is odd, because it loaded fine in Leopard and loads fine in 64 bit snow) but even when that .kext is removed, the booting process proceeds to the point where the GUI would launch and then it hangs. There aren't any error messages that I can see.

Anyone else having issues booting into 32 bit mode? Any fixes?

Slow OpenGL performance in Snow Leopard

24 August 2009 - 02:01 PM

I've got the following system:

Asus P5K-E
Intel Core 2 Duo E6400 (OC to 2.94 GHz)
5 GB OCZ Gold DDR2 800 MHz
8800 GT 512 MB (flashed with mac 8800 GT Rom)

I've got Snow Leopard up and running with the standard DSDT generated by the patcher and the following kexts:
ADI1988b (enables sound)
fakesmc (newest version)

Everything is running smoothly in either 64 or 32 bit (I'm in 32 bit presently because there is no Voodoo Power kext for 64 bit as of yet.) The problem is that my open GL performance is less than half of what I see in Leopard (According to XBench, anyhow. OpenMark shows a 15 percent drop.) Anyone else seeing poor nVidia performance in Snow Leo?
