  1. I been having this problem with my computer with it restarting after it's told to shutdown when ever any kind of USB port/s are connected. it will shut down just fine if a ps/2 keyboard and mouse are attached and it only has this issue when any kind of USB device is connected to the computer. I have updated my bios to the latest version (1.6) and shut off USB legacy and I am still having this restart issue with my computer. The only thing I found by googleing to fix this Issue is shutting off USB legacy in BIOS and that did not work for me and if your looking for my computer specs look in my signature. Also I gave up on 10.6.8 because I don't feel like editing my DHDT
  2. yes it was a combo update first to 10.6.7 then to 10.6.8 and each time I had to delete AppleHPET.kext because it disabled my USB ports and mouse. and another thing to note after the 10.6.7 update my PS/2 mouse stopped working but my PS/2 Keybord worked fine. another thing to note deleteing AppleHPET.kext fixed my USB issues and my Network card when I was running 10.6.3 I don't know what patched kernels to get because I don't know anything about macs
  3. My computer specks of my HP DC7700 with specks found in link Added hardwhere incluede Pentium D 3.4GHZ Intel 965Q Express Chipset 3gb of ram ASUS WL-138g V2 network card - PCI ASUS NVIDIA GeForce 6600 video card -PCIe Alright everything woked great when I installed Iatkos S3 V2 and deleted AppleHPET.kext the reason why I deleted AppleHPET.kext was so I could get the USB to work as well as the network card and it worked when I had 10.6.3 but when I upgraded to 10.6.8 I had to delete AppleHPET.kext again and this time it only fixed my USB but OSX is not reading my network card and also it is restarts when ever I try to shutdown with 10.6.8 Can anyone please help me?

    PCI Slots rarely detected

    Nothing in 3 months is there anyone who can help me with this?
  5. Hello I have a HP DC7700 My Specks Are 3.4Ghz Pentium D Processor 3GB of ram a ASUS NVIDIA GeForce 6600 256mb video card Intel 965Q Express Chipset Iatkos S3v2 10.6.3 installed Hello and thanks for trying to help me in advance. My issue is that I don't think my OS is detecting my PCI slots most of the time, mabey 1 in every 10 times my OS boots it will detect my PCI card wich is a ASUS WL-138g V2 network card. I don't know how to fix this everything else detects my card even the Iatkos instal CD however Snow Leopard does't seem to detect it nor can it detect any PCI slots.

    iAtkos S3 v2 on HP Pavilion g6-2146sl

    You might have a bad version of iAtkos S3 v2. Two seem to be floating around one with Qoopz kernels and one with out the Qoopz kernels . I had the same issue as you with my PC rebooting over and over. Check to see if your Disktro has the Qoopz kernels and if it don't look for the other version of iAtkos You should find the Qoopz kernels in Patches>Modifided kernels durring your custimise install. if you don't you have a bad disktro.
  7. I have a similar system dc7700 and the apple PS/2 worked for me and not the Voodoo PS/2 if that helps anyone. Also I am having trouble with the USB for this Computer and if anyone could help it would be much appreciated.
  8. the best way to get people to buy windows 8 is to get a high shool girl hi and put her on a Windows comershal about how a mac ate her paper.
  9. Here are my specks and I also installed a ASUS NVIDIA GeForce 6600 256mb video card with heat sink I was able to get Hazard 10.6.6i installed however I don't know the best way to install it for my computer. It took me a good 3 hours just to get Snow Leopard installed just because I wasn't shure what was the best boot loader and what set of NVIDIA drivers I should use. However I did get it installed and running but my DVD rom is not working at all and I am not shure if that is because of the SATA drivers or something else. So could anyone help me with the customize install? thank you.
  10. The full specks of my computer are and for video it also has a ASUS Silencer Series NVIDIA GeForce 6600 256 MB DDR SDRAM I was able to install Kalyway 10.5.2 but it kept freezing on me, however I think It is because I put a space on the partition and I did not know macs hate spaces. another issue I am haveing is that none of my USB ports are working and I even have to install useing the PS/2 ports. Also I know I will probably not beable to get the sound card or wirless network card to work so I was wondering what would be the cheapest PCI sound and Network card I could get that would work with Mac OSX? I am content with Kalyway but I was wondering if there is a disktro that would get me to install Snow Leperd Tank you for your help
