    D945GCLF2 Snow Leopard

    I have got the problem resolved finally and have a fully working install with no problems whatsoever.
  2. My rig also boots by default into 32 bit mode and it tends to get stuck @64 bit mode at the Apple Logo.
  3. I have been able to resolve my problem of the slow ethernet on RTL8139 card by following these instructions provided in the link below : http://www.infinitemac.com/f57/rtl8139-works-in-64bit-t3917/ I have finally been able to get my graphics card working using EFI Studio and hence the problem is resolved so the thread can be closed. Thanks a lot.

    D945GCLF2 Snow Leopard

    Thanks to the kext files provided above I was able to get my Snow OS X v3.5 distro without any major hiccups and I used a somewhat different procedure to copy the files onto system/library/extensions using MacDrive 8.0 on Windows 7 and then booted with -x -v -f because after successfully installing SL I would get stuck at no information set about this mac or something but with the kexts provided I was able to resolve and get a working install. Thanks a lot. Now the only problem that I am having is to install my eVga Nvidia 9500 Gt 512 card and the instructions provided in the nvidia graphics section worked perfect for me on Leopard 10.5.8 and installation was as easy as anything before. Now the only issue that I am having is when I try to run OSX86 Tools to execute Efi Strings I get a boolean error and if I am able to get rid of that then I am quite sure I can get the drivers to install. Any help in this regard will be highly welcomed.

    The NVIDIA 9500GT Thread

    How did you go about installing the drivers via the OSX86 Tools I got this error while trying to open EFI strings : Can’t make "0" into type boolean. (-1700)
  6. After so many days of trial and error I have finally got the SNOWOSX v3.5 distro running on my desktop listed in the signature below but I am having a strange problem that my NTFS partitions on my SATA hard-drive are not mounting and secondly the internet on my Snow Leopard is insanely slow as compared to Windows 7 where it works perfect. My network is detected of the shelf and its a D-LINK with model number RTL8139 something. I would be grateful if anybody could help me out in this respect. And when I run OSX86Tools on it, it gives me some boolean 0 error while I try to click the button add efi string. Since I am not that good with troubleshooting any help in all respects will be highly welcomed and the previous threads made by me detailing my installation issue was an error on my part as I was unable to execute the DSDT patch command properly during the installation process in terminal.
  7. My specs are provided below in my signature and I am using the snowosx v3.5 disc to install SL on my hard-drive and after the install successfully completes I get this error @bootup and the image is attached along. I would be grateful if you could tell me what is the problem and how can I go about solving it? Please help me!

    SL on ASUS P5K Pro [Success]

    I also installed SnowOSX on my motherboard the installation went successful but when I try to boot I get this error and my partition scheme was MBR by default. The image is attached and any analysis on this would be highly welcomed.
