  1. I could get a "desktop" but that was about it. I installed w/[url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] legacy+BridgeHelper 2.0 and everything working now. Only change in BIOS I made was too XMP. Hyperthreading, speedstep and turbo all left enabled. Also did not have to edit boot or simbios plists. Here's the quick steps. boot w/[url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] legacy changed disc w/retail 10.6 and install reboot w/[url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] legacy and install 10.6.7, run [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] w/o [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] and tick sandy bridge bootloader and macbookpro8,1 as well as audio for 889, usb3, both network kexts, 64-bit apple boot screen and finally system utilities. I did not select anything for video (XFX Radeon HD 5770) Install BridgeHelper Reboot into a shiny new vanilla 10.6.7 with full acceleration and speed!

  3. No OSX love for me yet! Ive tried different methods for install...funny thing, after i get to initial reboot after install, i get working desktop! Then apply update 10.6.7...and it farts to grey screen, or i try your brilliant package and i get beautiful colored brick blocks! So im doing burn in with windows7 (YUK!) Its not over! This is a test lab for a final cut render platform that will be replicated at least 5 times.
  4. Cant wait to try this out! Im just waiting on the vengeance memory and artic cooler freezer 7 pro. Has this method been tested on a "deluxe" board w/a i7 2600k? How about the usb3 performance?
  5. RESOLVED: Nividia 9800GT

    You can enable Quartz Extreme without installing anything by typing commands in the Terminal. Check if Quartz Extreme is enabled: sudo -s defaults read /Library/Preferences/com.apple.windowserver GLCompositor If it is enabled, you should read: {tileHeight = 256; tileWidth = 256; } You can enable Quartz Extreme without installing anything by typing the following from the command line: defaults write /Library/Preferences/com.apple.windowserver GLCompositor -dict tileHeight -int 256 tileWidth -int 256 Kill loginwindow (or restart) for changes to take effect: kill `ps ax | grep loginwindow | grep -v grep | sed -e 's/[[:blank:]]*//' | sed -e 's/[[:blank:]].*//'`

  7. Try deleting the nvinstaller and using gfx strings...works for me!

  11. Time Machine Fix For Intel82566MM Users

    @ nintendoguy, no...I have to renew DHCP lease. I rarely sleep this machine as it is "doing something" 24/7. The fact that I have a functioning Time Machine outweights this small bug. The kext used was straight from the techresearchinfo blog, and I'm sure w/more development this small bug will be solved! @ MacNutty, I don't see why it would'nt work. I see from your sig you modified the kext..for hardware id mabee, that should'nt matter.
  12. This is how I got it working: Modify IONetworkingFamily.kext by copying the Intel82566MM.kext to /Contents/PlugIns Install modified IONetworkingFamily.kext Go to/Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration Correct preferences.plist by changing (en1) entries with (en0) Delete NetworkInterfaces.plist Reboot -f
