    Lion installation via USB stick using Chameleon

    Do you have nullcpupowermanagement.kext in your /Extra/Extensions folder? You'll also need fakesmc.kext in that same folder too. In addition, you'll need to have a proper smbios.plist. My motherboard is a GA-P35-DS3P F7 Bios
  2. make sure your sata drives are in AHCI mode in the BIOS.
  3. Hi there, Just want to say thanks for the guide (see sig for config). Installed using the retail DVD and all is well. Sleep and reboot works. Haven't tried shutdown yet. Now to migrate the apps from the old installation. Regards, twobunnyrabbit

    Solving USB problems; USB devices do not mount

    Hi Just want to add an observation to this thread. I noticed that some of my external NTFS formatted USB hard drives are not mounting on my desktop hackintosh. Yet it is recognized as an attached device in System Profiler and Disk Utility. This doesn't seem to happen on a genuine Mac (tested on an Alum. MacBook). I found out that if the partition scheme was created using GUID as oppose to MBR, and formatted as NTFS, it'll mount properly. The drive still works under Windows (XP, Vista). Anyway, hope this helps.

    In dire need of a problem solver!

    When you say hibernate i assume you talking about deep sleep? Maybe you can try changing the hibernation mode. Here are the details (googled from this site). sudo pmset -a hibernatemode # # -> I don't have much experience with hibernate on laptops as it never works for mine. Hope this helps. ps: the hibernated image is in /var/vm/sleepimage. Maybe deleting this might help if the above doesn't
  6. I had this problem when i installed XxX 10.5.6 on a Lenovo 3000 N200 0769 laptop. It doesn't happen on all dmg. With the dmg that was causing the problem, I opened it with Disk Utility (not mounting it) and then right click on the dmg and choose "Convert image" (or something like that). And resave the image (defaults to Documents) and mount that image. Its a pain, but it works. Why don't you try it and see if it works.

    After Update problem with PS/2 Keyboard!

    Do a search for ACPIPS2Nub.kext and install it in /System/Library/Extensions (or user kext helper). Or ditch the ps2 keyboard and use a USB one. Is your mouse working?
  8. Sounds like a hardware problem. Either the video card or the motherboard (? corrupt bios). Have you tried putting in a different video card and see if the text/colours are still garbled? Is it possible to post a screenshot? Also, have you tried booting OSX with the "-v" flag to see where it gets stuck?

    Hackintosh and Pc in One

    Hi By default, Mac OSX will read any formatted NTFS drive, but will not allow you to write to it. You can google for ntfs-3g (free, but relatively slow) or paragon-ntfs (commercial, but fast) if you wish to write to an NTFS partition from your Mac. From WinXP's perspective (or Vista), you can try MacDrive (google is your friend) to read and write to Mac formatted partitions (HFS). Hope this helps.

    AppleACPIBatteryManager for Tiger and Leopard

    Hi Chun-Nan After updating my laptop to 10.5.4, the previous patched powermanagement bundle didn't work. Tried the b6 release with the original one and it works. Thanks.

    New to MAC, trying to get 10.5.X to work on my PC

    Hi Have u read this before updating? http://netkas.org/?p=50 I have just updated from 10.5.2 to 10.5.4 using the above method. Make sure u replace the relevate kexts before restarting (and repair permissions). I'm not sure what patched kext are relevant to your system.
  13. Hi everyone, Came across this thread to see how compatible the Dell XPS M1330 is for a Hackintosh. I found this thread on the first page about USB and sleep. On my laptop I knew one of the usb devices (?webcam) was stopping the machine from sleeping. When you select sleep, the machine would wake up after turning off for 1s or so. The USBEHCI Updater (made possible by Superhai - thanks) fixed this problem. Now it sleeps and wakes up . Now have the perfect hackintosh! Btw, if you have USB bluetooth on, make sure you turn it off first.

    Acer Laptop users (Intel).

    Try deleting the ApplePS2Mouse.kext (make a backup first before you delete it) from inside ApplePS2Controller.kext then delete Extensions.mkext and reboot to see if it works.
  15. Just a thought. Anyone tried Chun-Nan's IOPCIFamily and IOPCCard kexts in this forum to see if it works? I dont have OSX installed on my LG notebook anymore, so can't give it a try. If I have the time, i'll put it back and try those kexts.
