  1. Any last guesses on what's to be released? :-)
  2. I had the same problem. Turned out to be a problem with the DSDT.aml i was using. I removed it, rebooted without it, and made a new DSDT.aml. Now both parallels and VmWare works as expected.
  3. Go to this thread http://forum.insanelymac.com/index.php?sho...view=getnewpost and read the solution from "jan bird". Solved my problem on my GA-EP45-DS3
  4. [SOLVED] 10.5.6: Sleep no longer working

    I tried everything on the forum, but this checkbox did the trick for me to. A big thanks to jan bird! (Can't really understand why it makes any change though...). Motherboard: GA-EP45-DS3 Nvidia GeForce 8600 GT
  5. update to 10.5.3 = brick!

    I guess that you did not make a backup of your kexts earlier so you can not copy required files from that. You would probably need to get some extensions (like AppleSMBIOS.kext) from an older version and replace the 10.5.3 ones with. The AppleSMBIOS can be found in the pc-efi package available on Netkas homepage. Getting the 10.5.3 update to run from a command line is not possible (booting with -s). It could be that you could start the command prompt from the Kalyway DVD (have a graphical environment available) and mount the .DMG file. Then you could maybee do "open MacOSXUpdCombo10.5.3.pkg" to start the update... (have not tried it myself). Look at it from the bright side.. You are learning plenty about the ins and outs of OSX :-)
  6. update to 10.5.3 = brick!

    I have gotten that behaviour once. If I remember correctly it is because an update has not finnished correctly. There is a way to boot to get the update completed by holding down the shift key during startup (hold it until you see the gray apple and progress bar). If I remeber correctly the update will complete after login and it should work after this (it could off course be that the update replaces the kexts you just added so you will have to do the command line replacement/remove again). I assume that you did the replacement of the "Don't steal...." in the file with dsmos.kext ?
  7. update to 10.5.3 = brick!

    You could always try to boot on the kalyway DVD and start a command prompt to fix things. You will need to mount your system drive and do everything that netkas mentions in his update guide (http://netkas.org/?p=50). The first thing to do is to remove the /System/Library/Extensions/AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement.kext (don't forget to add the mount point before), and then edit the /System/InstallAtStartup/scripts/1... This could probably allow you to pass the kernel panic. After that you would probably need to replace the AppleSMBIOS.kext and maybee some more extensions.... (sound?). But you could probably recover your system. If you have access to another OSX box you could plug in your system drive to that machine and do the editing there (you disk will be accessible in the /Volumes mountpoint). You will need to be a bit familiar with a unix command prompt....
  8. Problems with notebook speakers?

    Worked perfect on a Fujitsu Siemens AmiloPro that I have been struggling with! Thnx!
  9. Leopard won't Boot

    Maybe this guide will help you. http://forum.insanelymac.com/index.php?showtopic=68641 The other way is to install a 10.4.x version (Jas, uphuck or whatever) and partition the drive using Diskutil on one of these versions. Then boot the install DVD, start a terminal and delete all files on the disk: cd /Volumes/XXX where XXX is to be replaced by the name of your disk rm -rf * After this do a complete install of leopard without repartitioning or erasing the disk. Run the afterinstall scripts....
  10. Users with GMA 950 / X3100 Real Macs needed here

    Have installed it on my Asus F3 series laptop and it works like charm! Big thank you paulicat. One thing that does not work (but I have had problems with that with the old framebuffer driver also) is dual-screen or switching to the external monitor while the OS is running. Once again! A big thank you for your effort!! :-)
  11. AppleHDA Solution - Work in progress

    I have been struggling for a while to get sound working on my Asus F3 series notebook. It worked perfect in Tiger, but in Leopard I got it working but after a reboot it stopped again... Reinstalling the kext would not help, but reinstalling Leo and applying the kext from tiger or Tarugas HD Audio patcher (1.16) would give me sound, but only once... Next reboot it would be gone. I have discovered that there are cache-files stored in /System/Library/Cache and /System/Library/Extensions/Cache that in some way caches kernel extensions and for the 10.4.9 extension for audio this spells trouble :-) If I remove the files in this directory (boot with -s and remove them) and reboot I will get sound again.... My extremely quick and dirty fix to this is to simply replace the two directories with symbolic links to /tmp that are cleaned empty on every reboot, and now I got sound working.... I don't know if this causes something else to break yet, but I though I would share this info and see if anybody else gets it working... (If it breaks your system you have tried this on your own risk...) To create the links do the following (from a Terminal prompt): cd /System/Library sudo -s (give password) rm -rf Cache ln -s /tmp Cache cd Extensions rm -rf Cache ln -s /tmp Cache
  12. Have you disabled UAC on Vista?

    I had UAC disabled on my Vista installation. Now I have disabled Vista and replaced it with OSX on my main computer :-)... my next computer will be a mac.... (I have been using PC's since 1984, DOS version 1.1......). I think that Vista will be a huge success, almost as successful as Windows Millennium or Microsoft BOB (anybody remember?) ....
  13. Parallels 3.0 available for download

    Just installed it on my hackintosh running 10.4.9. It works flawlessly.
  14. Just browsed around versiontracker and found that parallels 3.0 has been released. http://www.parallels.com/en/download/desktop/ Have anybody tried it on a hackintosh yet?
  15. How does unsupported hardware appear?

    Unless it is an USB device it will probably not appear at all....
