  1. So Sabertooth, IVB and 680 it is then! I dont like radeons cards for no particular reason. I simply believe that Nvidia is better and has better support. Maybe I will buy a raid-controller as well. I shouldn't run into any problems with it and it also might be more stable than a software raid. Interesting link. So I guess it's worth a try. If it doesn't work I will have to stick with windows when it comes to streaming blueray onto my tv. Thank you and welcome to the Sabertooth club!
  2. Thank you for your explanations! I will have to wait for the i7 3770K anyway (the release date for IVB should be the 23. April) so it wouldn't matter to wait for a 680 to be (back) in stock as well. It seams that nearly every Nvidia Card got its proper OSX drivers on the long run. Should be a matter of time. The Z77 is indeed a nice board. I like the TUF components and this "thermal armor"-thing. Asus gives it 5 years of warranty instead of 3 years for all their other boards. I think that speaks for its quality. To buy it now could be a risk, yes, but I think the odds are quiet good as the worst thing might be just something like the LAN not working properly or so. It seams I just have to hold on for a while to be sure that everything will run stable with these new components. But what you said about the RAID config seams to be a real problem. I want to run the two SSDs in sofware raid just by the board. With two partitions on that Raid drive, one for OSX and the other for Windows I really might run into trouble? And blueray really works in OSX?
  3. Hi! Years ago I was very happy with my "Supermarket-Computer-Hackintosh" running perfectly with Tiger 10.4.3. I loved being a part of the hackintosh community and reading in this forum. But then I decided to finally buy an Apple mac an ended up with the first unibody (Late 2008) MBP. It works well until this day but I want something new. And it has to be very powerful, good value for money and NOT WINDOWS! That means of course I need a new Hackintosh! Unfortunately my knowledge about setting up a good hackintosh system died slowly over the past years and I really need your help with that now. So please take a look at my desired system configuration and tell me if and where I could run into trouble or incompatibilities: Board: Asus Sabertooth Z77 RAM: 16GB (4x4) Corsair Dominator 1600Mhz - Could you give me any information about this board? Its fairly new and I couldn't find anything about it on osx86project.org. CPU: Intel i7 3770K GPU: EVGA Geforce GTX 680 2GB - The Ivy Bridge CPUs aren't released yet but I guess I shouldn't have any problem with it, also not with the GTX 680, what do you think? SSD: 2x120GB Corsair Force GT in RAID 0 - My biggest concern. Will I be able to run OSX Lion on a RAID 0 configuration with a small windows partition in dual boot? LG Blueray RW Drive - Does OSX support Blueray read and write? Maybe with a little workaround? I hope you can help me. Thanks!
  4. You are a genius! That finally solved my problem! I didn't know NVKush before. It even enabled QE in contrast to NVinject and the efi-string solution. Thank you very much!
  5. Well, my 8600GT is now running as 8600GT EFI with the EFI-String in apple.com.boot.plist and NVinject is deleted. It works well, but the problem with the second monitor remains. What else could I do?
  6. Thanks, i'll give that a try.
  7. Hello! I updated my 10.5.2 system with the Kalyway 10.5.3 Combo Update. After reboot my second monitor isn't working anymore. The monitor is recognized in the system preferences and I can see the cursor on it, but the rest of the screen is black. That means when I move windows over to the second monitor they're not shown. In fact only the cursor is. I'm using a Nvidia 8600GT with Nvinject. Can someboy help me?
  8. New Kalyway 10.5.2 Release!

    Great Release! On my Computer it starts much faster than the older Kalyway 10.5.1 release and everything is working out of the box.
  9. Graphic Driver Problem!

    Did you try nvinject ?
  10. New MacBook Pros Soon?

    ^ I wish they would also keep the panels of their displays up to date. I don't like that new black keyboard. The white one looks better. But the trackpad is great!
  11. New MacBook Pros Soon?

    The first thing I think about when something is mentioned about Apple presenting new products somewhere is new Cinema Displays! These Displays are 4 years old! How old is the MacBook Pro?
  12. how to update my 10.4.8 to 10.5.1?

    As brlock an I said: It is update not format! I said you have to follow the guide from the point were there stands "INSTALLING LEOPARD" and NOT from the beginnng. Just select your 10.4.8 Partition as installation path for Leopard.
  13. how to update my 10.4.8 to 10.5.1?

    I had the JAS 10.4.8 intel only image installed on my PC. I updated my system with Leopard 10.5 following the guide in the first post of this thread: http://forum.insanelymac.com/index.php?showtopic=75295 to be sure you should use the same Leopard image like vakakush and me. Boot from the Leopard DVD and because you just want to update start with that guide from the point where he wrote "INSTALL LEOPARD". You have to follow the guide exactly apart from this step: -bash-3.2# /usr/misc/script.sh Leopard Here you have to change "Leopard" to the exact name of the drive you already installed 10.4.8 to. Like "System" or "Mac" or whatever the name of your drive is. Your system is fully updated, you can use every previously installed program and all your data is still there. I hope it'll work for you as well. Forgive my poor english I'm not a native speaker. Greetz Vosster
  14. That's right. You simply have to type <string>-legacy -f</string> in the com.apple.Boot.plist and it will work everytime. Also in Leopard. But there has to be another solution because it takes time to always rebuild the kext cache on every startup. Can somebody help us?
