  1. I read through most of this thread, but I'm still confused. Which LegacyHDA should I be using for the Intel DX58SO with ALC889 audio under 10.6.X? Thanks!
  2. Has anyone found an audio solution for the DX58SO that works under Snow Leopard that does not use VoodooHDA?
  3. [How to] Install 10.5.2 Update [TUTORIAL]

    Another success here. Intel D975XBX2 with Core Duo Quad. Just deleted the one kext and edited the script. Then after restarting reinstalled the patched AppleHDA kext. About this Mac is a bit confused, but besides that things are grand.
  4. Orange external hard disk / LEOPARD

    Any drives on an AHCI controller show up with external drive icons. This is because, among other things, AHCI allows drives to be "ejected" while on (hot swapped). If you turn off AHCI in the bios the drives should show up with normal icons.
  5. Actually, the network should just work. I know it doesn't look like it is, but boot up with a network cable attached, then launch safari. If necessary use the network troubleshooter, but it should be working by the time you try to load a webpage for the second time.
  6. Anything at all, including 1gb DIMMs? Sounds like a bad motherboard to me. I'm having a different issue. I installed with AHCI turned off, now when I turn it on I can't boot.
  7. Tap f8 after the bios splashscreen to bring up the bootloader. It's there, just not displaying anything.
  8. pentium d and efi_patch?

    Just got my system working. Pentium D 2.8ghz, D975xbx2 motherboard, 3gb RAM, 7300GT. TOH kernel, EFI bootloader 5.2. 5.0 did not work properly. 5.2 boots and runs normally, even photoshop works fine.
  9. Okay, this is weird. After letting it sit for the night it booted right up, no problem. Sigh.
  10. The topic pretty much says it all, but to elaborate: Running TOH Leopard on a D975XBX2 motherboard, P4 3.0ghz, 3gb RAM, Geforce 7300. Boots and runs fine. I discovered I had a Pentium D 2.8ghz not in use, so I swapped the processors. Now the system locks on boot at the grey apple screen with a small circle with a line through it over the top of the apple. I tried various bios settings (and booting into Windows, which worked fine) but still can't get Leopard to boot. Any suggestions?
  11. Oh well, looks like I get to answer my own question. The values for processor type are hardcoded into the loginwindow.app. It appears to be a non-trivial exercise to add or replace processor types. The following processor names are included in loginwindow: Intel Core Solo Intel Core Duo Intel Core 2 Solo Intel Core 2 Duo Single-Core Intel Xeon Dual-Core Intel Xeon Unknown Intel Xeon Quad-Core Intel Xeon PowerPC PowerPC 601 PowerPC 602 PowerPC 603 PowerPC 603e PowerPC 603ev PowerPC 604 PowerPC 604e PowerPC 620 PowerPC G3 PowerPC 750 PowerPC G4 PowerPC 7400 PowerPC 7450 PowerPC G5 PowerPC 970
  12. Yes, I know you can edit the About This Mac to show whatever text you'd like in the spot for processor. What I'm wondering is if it's possible to add processor names to the big list of processors Mac OS uses to populate the About This Mac and System Analyzer processor name fields.
