  1. Hello everyone (skip to the bold text below if you get bored easily or are in no mood for a story), Working on my first osX86 install, and i'm finding it challenging.. which is interesting at least! I've already tried many different patched .kext(s) , bootflags, and even hardware configs / os configs to resolve some of my outstanding issues... without success. Every time I seem to fix one thing, that fix seems to break another thing that was working before. System is: asus p5e-vm hdmi (w/atherosL1 gigabit NIC AND ALC883 audio), core2quad, gtx260, OCZvertex2, 8gb ram Install flash media created using ###### and the fresh install works fine once I overcame a few issues like the black screen on install (resolved by setting >npci=0x3000 PCIRootUID=0< in the .plist) . Using chameleon 2.1 as bootloader. D-link DWA-556 wireless card worked immediately as did the GTX260. Initially, I had no sound and no ethernet, but was able to find working .kext(s) for both the atherosl1 and the alc883 audio. I then struggled to get sleep / wake functionality working.. I've had a few different sleep issues: 1. not properly sleeping (only turning off the monitor and then not waking again) - this was fixed by a patched AppleRTC.kext which, as a side effect, i can no longer restart the system (without using the power button). This also fixed the CMOS reset issue I was getting every time I powered it off after a failed sleep/wake attempt. If I can get sleep working properly.. it won't bother me too much if i can't restart! 2. properly sleeping, but then the video not coming back (resolved this by darkwake=0). 3. sleeping, and then immediately waking up. **This is where I am now: If the NIC is enabled (wi-fi card disabled), the computer sleeps perfectly. Upon wake, ethernet no longer works (i have tried setting static ip and dns, setting service ordering, and creating a new "location" ). I've tried using patched IOPCIFamily, & AppleACPIPlatform .kext(s) as well. ... the only thing i haven't tried is reverting back to an older version of mDNSResponder as some people have reported as working. I would love to use the ethernet instead of wi-fi but can't seem to fix ethernet after sleep. If I disable the ethernet and instead use the dlink wifi card, the system immediately wakes up. Ethernet continues to work after wake at least... I think my next step is trying the old version of mDNSResponder. BTW, i used DSDT editor to extract my own, compile and then patch my dsdt.aml with patches specifically for my motherboard that I found on olarila.com . Here is what I have in my /Extras/Extensions folder in case you might wonder: bold items are for ALC883 audio support. AHCI_3rdParty_SATA.kext FakeSMC.kext IOUSBMassStorageClass.kext AppleACPIPlatform.kext HDEFInject.kext JMicron36xATA.kext AppleHDA.kext IONetworkingFamily.kext LegacyAppleHDAHardwareConfigDriver.kext EvOreboot.kext IOUSBFamily.kext LegacyHDAPlatformDriver.kext Do any of you fine folks have suggestions on how to fix the ethernet disconnect after sleep issue? Sorry for the rambling and thank you! -Ryan
  2. Hello again, Does anyone have any ideas on getting a logitech quickcam pro9000 to work in mountain lion? Seems that the microphone works and is identified as "unknown USB audio device" under sound preferences' INPUT tab. Trying to use it within a camera application fail. The little light on the front of it never goes on and no picture is ever displayed. I've done some searching for drivers but have failed to find anything that look applicable. I see that most people say it should just already work with apple's default drivers. Logitech control panel didn't detect anything.. thank you for your time, -Ryan
  3. it works fine if i boot into windows7. so.. maybe an issue with the USB setup or kext(s) or something... thanks for the feedback!
  4. Hi DJenkins, I'm new to Hackintosh but in the past few days of researching various issues of my own, I think i can offer some help with your BIOS reset issue. Do some searches regarding the AppleRTC.kext extension. Some places have a sudo script to modify your own, and other sites have some previously patched ones you can download. My system was experiencing the same issue where my bios settings were reset all the time after I would sleep my computer and it would never wake up, forcing me to hold down the power button, and then setup my BIOS again on next boot. Patching this file also my sleeping issues.... (ie, it wakes up now), however, an unwanted side-effect is that after i have slept the computer (one or more times), using the apple/restart menu won't restart the computer. It'll go to a black screen and just hang.. forcing me to push the power button again, but NOT resetting the bios settings. Here are two links from this forum that discuss AppleRTC and related issues. http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=276066 http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=280949
