    Video driver

    I am at the same place. I am about to remove the video card to test. At what point do you type in npci=0x2000 I am using the latest cakewalk configured for my board and a DSDT for my board.
  2. Hello, I followed the steps here http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=268511 To a T. I did configure kakewalk and get the DSDT for my board gigabyte GA Z68MX UD2H B3. After booting from USB.. kakewalk starts the screen goes gray scrolls text screen goes black with some text then stops on [PCI CONFIGURATION BEGIN]. Any ideas what to check? Thanks

    MSI GTX 560 (Not TI)

    Hi, Unfortunately I do not have the answer. I came here with the same question. Have you found out how to do it or if the 560 is even compatible?

    Wont install Kalaway 10.5.2

    Are you using? Kalyway 10.5.2 DVD Intel_Amd (sse2/sse3) EFI V8 ? Did you boot the speed step kernel? It is the only kernel with SSE2 support that you can use at DVD boot. The read me explains it all. Even if you have chosen a kernel at install, you can still try the others kernels after installation ! (same thing for dvd boot except that only modbinkernel , speedstepkernel , kabylkernel and nforcekernel are available as boot options !) All you have to do is just press F8 at Darwin's prompt and then type the kernel's name you want to boot with : sleepkernel (intel/amd/sse2/sse3) speedstepkernel (intel/amd/sse2/sse3) nforcekernel (intel/sse3) modbinkernel (intel/amd/sse3) vanillakernel (intel/sse3) kabylkernel (intel/sse3) with sleep support
  5. If your CPU only supports SSE2, need to boot the spedstep kernel as it is the only kernel that supports SSE2 when booting from DVD. So boot from DVD HIT F8 then type speedstepkernel and push enter. See if that helps
  6. Hi, I am running this 945 board with a Northwood (no SSE3). I booted from the DVD and typed speedstepkernel at the boot menu as, according to the instructions, it is the ONLY kernel available for DVD boot with SSE2. It reboots, just as it does with the vanillakernel..... any ideas. Even if you have chosen a kernel at install, you can still try the others kernels after installation ! (same thing for dvd boot except that only modbinkernel , speedstepkernel , kabylkernel and nforcekernel are available as boot options !) All you have to do is just press F8 at Darwin's prompt and then type the kernel's name you want to boot with : sleepkernel (intel/amd/sse2/sse3) speedstepkernel (intel/amd/sse2/sse3)
  7. It was working great. For whatever reason, with one monitor in the primary DVI connector, accessing the display properties would appear to freeze the system. As mentioned above, adding a 2nd display fixes that. After adding a 2nd display, i went into the display properties and right away it popped up on the 2nd screen. I had to calibrate cause I gotta have the TV gamma setting. Calibrating only affected one monitor. i rebooted for whatever reason and I the 2nd monitor did not initialize after booting into OSX. And the primar monitor just got to a blue back ground screen. So close.
  8. This worked great. the resolution and colors goto max for my display 1650x1080. I did notice I was unable to get into the display settings. When i would open the display settings, it would show briefly then fade off the screen leaving my with nothing. I am going to hook up a 2nd monitor and see what happens. You guys are bad ass. Since coming here 2 months ago I installed 10.4.9 without the Geforce support at that point, I got mini and decided to use the PC as a file server. I am so close to getting rid of Windows for good. I almost backed up the data on my raid arrays deleted them then used the hackntosh to make the software raid volumes. If only some mad genius could figure out raid support ... and how to get playback of EVO files ripped from HD dvds. I wish I had something to contribute to the scene but I have no skills in this area.

    $300 osX86 box?

    Thats what I ended up doing earlier this month. Somehow it's not the same. Getting OSX working on a PC was 1\2 the fun.
  10. Does any one know which SATA chipset the new mac minis are using?
  11. Really? Socket 478? I didn't even know they made Core 2 Duos that were socket 478.
  12. I have been using XP as a digital studio and a an HD recorder, (grabbing the HD stream from cable boxes over firewire). The I heard about the hackntosh and went that route. But not everything worked perfect. Especially the Raid Array. So I broke down and got a new Mac Mini with 2 ram slots and the core 2 duo. Can I drop a quad core in there or would it get too hot? What about the power supply. Thanks.
  13. I have been reading the forums for a couple days. I successfully got 10.4.9 to install on a 965 board. Of course, some of my PCI cards don't work and the onboard sound is limited to 2 channel. etc etc.. So what is the dream set up to make a cheap fully functional Hackintosh.
