  1. Glad it worked. Repair your permissions and flush your caches and you should be fine.
  2. Anyone installed DP4?

    Try [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] and install the HDA Rollback kext. If that doesn't work, just install the VoodoHDA kext.
  3. Anyone installed DP4?

    This method worked fine for me on both my machines, with a couple of small tweaks. First, I used MaLd0n's Terminal script to mount the BaseSystem.dmg and, second, I used his alternate OSInstall.mpkg file. I've used it both to upgrade an existing Snow Leoprad installation and for a clean install. The only other thing I did differently (and I recommend it) was to use [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] to do the post-installation steps, including using the appropriate DSDT file and using TonyMac's version of Chameleon (Chimera). Using [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] with a DSDT and Chimera can, btw, help overcome any Graphics, sound and ethernet issues. One more important thing: For certain Gigabyte Boards (such as my X58A-UD3R), you must format the USB stick as MBR or it won't boot.
  4. Did you try connecting both DVI->HDMI and VGA outputs to their respective inputs on your display?
  5. I've discovered a workaround for me. I caution that this may be the result of my particular configuration, but I've got DVI->HDMI working in 10.6.5. First, please note that my card is a Zotac 9500GT 1GB RAM. I just bought this card because it supposedly is a rebranded version of the GT120 card which Apple used for a while in its Mac Pros. It's got DVI, HDMI and VGA outputs. I'm using DVI to my display's HDMI input via a DVI->HDMI cable. When I first got the card and tried it, I got the typical black screen. Just so I could use 10.6.5, I decided to hook it up via VGA, but I left the DVI->HDMI cable connected, too. I booted in VGA mode and got the black screen even in VGA. Out of desperation, I switched to the HDMI input on my display. Much to my shock and delight, it worked! So, again, here's what I did: 1. Connected both DVI->HDMI and VGA outputs to their respective inputs on my display. 2. First chose the VGA input to boot to Chameleon boot screen, selected my SL HD and let it boot until I got the typical black screen. 3. Once at the black screen, switched inputs from VGA to HDMI and it worked. A couple of notes: a. I con confirm HDMI does NOT work if only DVI->HDMI cable is connected. Both VGA AND DVI->HDMI cables must be connected. b. Windows works fine on either HDMI or VGA input. I chose to disable the VGA display within Windows. Hope this helps somebody else. aboutthismac.tiff systemprofiler.tiff
  6. 10.6.5 is out

    Only issue I had was sleepenabler (not surprisingly) in my E/E folder. Removed it and 10.6.5 is OK on my EP45-UD3R board. Won't be able to try my EX58 machine until tomorrow.
  7. Yes. Is there another set of installation instructions we should know about? Also, I did the "mandatory" read.
  8. I followed the installation instructions and got a blank screen.
  9. What a moron I am for not using the search function in IORegistryExplorer to search for vbios! Oh, wait. . . I DID do that search and found nothing, which is why I asked the question!
  10. Can someone please remind me where the vbios info is located in ioregistryexplorer? Thanks.
  11. Do you have a link for idoc? Thanks!
  12. Honestly, I've kind of given up for now.
  13. I tried that with little luck. With that combination + video ROM I could get graphics, but no way to adjust the resolution. Hope your results are better.
