Took out a RAM Hackintosh has problems with Dual Channels most of the time . 3. Suspend mode changed to S3 from AUTO I am not sure about this. I was reading about a successful AMD installation with this configuration. But I saw no difference yet. 4. Booted from DVD with Boot: "Kernel Cache"=\amd arch=i386 -v Successfull discovery of all 4 cores of the CPU and 4GB RAM. 5.
