  1. I've been running Linux for a few years so I know the dangers of running the Sudo command. The installation is only a Hackintosh and can be rebuilt within about 20 minutes from my Lion USB with absolutely no trouble at all. I simply wiped the system and then reinstalled all of the .kexts properly the first time around. It's been 3 or so days now and I haven't had any problems with shut downs or anything. Though the PC did crash just once from going to 'sleep' and then never waking up. I just simply turned sleep off and haven't had the problem since. Thanks for your help you were undoubtedly the one who found the fix for me and now I have a fully working Hackintosh, Linux and Windows 7 machine. I am very grateful.
  2. Basically I want to know how I can install my retail WIndows 64 bit Home Premium on the second partition of my GPT partitioned disk. Apparently it is possible if you boot in UEFI mode. I have no idea how to do this... I have a UEFI bios... My motherboard is an ASUS P8H67M. I currently have 10.7.4 Lion installed and I would like to keep it and install Windows 7 along side it, then overwrite the boot with Chameleon so I can dual boot. Any ideas on how to boot my installation in UEFI mode so I can install Windows 7 on my second partition? Thanks a ton!
  3. Thanks for being so much help. I rebuilt permissions and deleted the cache. But after running the installer it didn't look like the .kext was removed... When I went to Apple > About this Mac > More Info > System Report > Ethernet cards, it was still the appleRTL8169 after the installation. So I would assume that i was still using the problematic .kext. I then pulled up another terminal and ran: cd //system/extensions etc. etc. etc. then I removed the .kext with: sudo rm -rf AppleExtensionEthernet.kext etc. Now I'm going to do a reboot and try running the installer again because something tells me it didn't remove the .kext for me and I just did. Apple > About this Mac > More Info > System Report > Ethernet cards, now shows an Ethernet card but no .kext is referenced. EDIT: Ok rebooted and got a pretty uninformative kernel panic: Rebooted again, no problem. I didn't run the .kext installer and I'm going to try running it now.. EDIT AGAIN: Ok it still doesn't look like anything has changed in system settings.. there is still no .kext referenced. So I don't know if it's working or not. I'm going to do a clean install. Fingers crossed that this will be the last one I have to do.
  4. Ok.. so what can I do to fix it? If I use my wireless.. my speed is far, far less than if use my Ethernet.. is it just a case of what kext I am using for my Ethernet? Can I use a different one, will that fix the problem? This rebooting issue is the only negative thing I am dealing with when using this Hackintosh... I'd really like to be able to not have to worry about crashes. EDIT: Apparently according to this: http://www.asus.com/...#specifications My ethernet is a: Realtek® 8111E , 1 x Gigabit LAN Controller I'm not 'usually' as dumb as I look but from that kernel panic it looks to me as if my Hackintosh is using the .kext RTL8169 for my Ethernet... am I right or wrong? Putting 2 and 2 together would suggest that it's using the wrong .kext? Or am I barking up the wrong tree here...
  5. Thanks a ton for the info. I fixed the permissions and so far it's been about 5 hours and there hasn't been any crashes. It crashed once an hour after I fixed permissions but that was the moment I ran a 'firewall' program. So I think it may have had something to do with that. I'll reboot the machine and run it in -v verbose. So running it in -v means that it will give me an error screen next time that the crash occurs and I can read what the problem is? I thought it only 'booted verbosely' Thanks again for the info my PC seems to be a lot more stable now anyway. I'd say I'm 99% of the way there. Ok it crashed again, and then I rebooted and it crashed again instantly.. Here is a picture I took: Can you guys make anything of that?
  6. Didn't realise discussing that was banned edited my post. Minor edit: Very funny except that this has happened 25 times now.. and it stops me from being able to do anything :/
  7. So after installing Lion on my new Hackintosh it works perfectly for awhile. But after about 20 minutes, or up to 30 minutes; I get the error "You must restart your computer" the screen slowly fades to grey etc. Any idea what's going on? CPU: i7-2600 GPU: Nvidia GT 530 1GB HDD: 1TB Caviar Green RAM: 12GB DDR3 1333 MOBO: ASUS P8H67-M Installed flawlessly and boots up without a problem. The only issue I have, is it doing this after a small amount of time? I can feel that I am almost there! After crashing I sometimes lose my sound also, I have no idea why but it just doesn't initialise with the computer. This only happens after my PC has crashed :/ EDIT: This only seems to be really happening when I am torrenting something, using either uTorrent or Transmission. So it seems to be something to do with the hard drive... I have no idea what is going on... Any ideas?
