  1. When I boot normally with 64-bit, everything will boot up fine, but usually within about 5 minutes of casual operation I get a kernel panic. Also, I'll get a hardware error with my DVD drive in the boot verbose, and then the drive won't be recognized. None of this happens with a -x32 boot flag. My system specs are in my sig, any suggestions? Thanks Edit: I actually just got a KP while loading WoW on 32 bit.
  2. I'm on 10.6.4 and all is well, except for sleepenabler.kext. It causes panics and right now I'm using the pmVersion=0 flag. Any workarounds?
  3. I just updated to 10.6.4 and I'm pretty much having the same problem. I replaced my sleepenabler.kext with one that works with 10.6.4, but now it panics about a minute or two after the boot.
  4. I did figure out my graphics situation, but the way. The graphics card was fried - be careful with XFX. =P. Anyway, has anyone tried out 10.6.4?
  5. I've been running SL for some time now, with no issues at all really. As of recently though, my screen has started doing some glitchy things, and everything but the mouse movement has started to lock up. It happened once while watching a youtube video, but it returned to normal. It happened again later on in the day while logging into WoW, and I had to go ahead and restart my computer. My graphics card is a 9800 GT. I don't have any issues with it in Windows, but I'm wondering if it may be running a little hotter than it should in OS X. Any thoughts?

    WoW Cataclysm Beta Opt-In?

    Nice. I just submitted as a 10.6.3 Intel q6600 mac.

    WoW Cataclysm Beta Opt-In?

    So should I opt-in for the Cataclysm beta on my hackintosh? It sends your system specs, which means it reports that I'm running 10.6.3 on a Gigabyte motherboard and NVidia 9800gt etc. Could there be any possible negative repercussions to this?
  8. No problem, here's a link to the kext I believe I used. http://www.meklort.com/?p=167
  9. Reiterating a post of mine a page or two ago: "So I updated to 10.6.3 and I got the sleepenabler kernal panics. I just googled "sleepenabler.kext 10.6.3" and found a link to a version that is compatible with the update. I deleted my old one remotely and installed the new one, then I booted to OS X with the -x32 flag (otherwise I would get kernal panics at the desktop) and repaired permissions. Then I rebooted again with no flags and all was good. Back on Snow Leopard with sleep functionality." I'm sure if you prepare the kexts before you update, all should go smoothly. I am running the Cartri BIOS, mind you.
  10. What happens if Virtualization Technology is enabled in the BIOS? Is there any way to make this functional, because I was interested in setting up VM Ware Fusion, and it requires VT to be enabled for 64-bit support.
  11. I gave that a shot. But eh, I'm just done with the mouse issue. Thanks though. Compared to my past years in and out of tinkering with OS X, this whole installation was almost effortless with the help of this thread and the Cartri BIOS. Is there any other mobo as compatible as this at the moment?
  12. My F12 key is automatically mapped to bring up my dashboard. The drives work fine in Windows, but the front keys don't respond in Mac. I went ahead and gave up on the G5 after I bought the Logitech LX8, so I'm not concerned about the mouse. Guess it just didn't like me.
  13. Yep, nevermind, I'm a noob. I was unaware that SL doesn't report QE/CI information in the graphics information. According to the test methods, it's enabled for me. So that puts the icing on the cake for a perfect SL install with this guide and the Cartri custom bios! Well, except for the eject buttons on my DVD drives not working, but I've always had that problem for all OS X versions I've used. If there is a solution though, that would be nice.
  14. So I updated to 10.6.3 and I got the sleepenabler kernal panics. I just googled "sleepenabler.kext 10.6.3" and found a link to a version that is compatible with the update. I deleted my old one remotely and installed the new one, then I booted to OS X with the -x32 flag (otherwise I would get kernal panics at the desktop) and repaired permissions. Then I rebooted again with no flags and all was good. Back on Snow Leopard with sleep functionality. Only issue is that I still have no QE/CI for my 9800 GT. I used the 9800 GT EFI string as suggested and changed the part that specifies the VRAM size to 512mb, but with still no luck. EDIT: Oh, and the eject buttons on my DVD drives actually don't work. Any suggestions are appreciated!
  15. The 9800GT in EFIStudio is the 1GB version, I'm using the 512MB one. I've made custom strings for the 9800gt and tried those as well. I just did a software update to 10.6.3 though, and now I'm getting instant kernal panics. I just saw "***UPDATE*** Possible solution includes making sure you rebuild your kextcache after everything, BE 100% SURE IT WORKED!" I didn't do that before the update...is there a way I can do it off of my 10.5.4 install on my external hard drive? And I can't really see you benefitting from the BIOS if you already have your OS installed then. I haven't timed the boot time, but it's pretty quick. I really just like the BIOS since I don't have to deal with DSDT stuff.
