  1. Retail 10.5.6 on HP Mini 5101?

    I am answering my own question now lol This was the closest I got to installing it... Along with iBoot132 on Leopard, I remember using Voodoo HDA to install the audio driver. The audio chip is a AD1984A and native to OSX so theoretically (I read) it should be recognised by AppleHDA without any changes. As for the network driver, it is a Marvell Yukon 88E8702, the kext which can be downloaded here> http://www.osx86.net...do=file&id=1135 As for the Broadcom wifi and bluetooth, that's still to be determined, but we can say for sure it is a BCM9207MCD / 4322AGN (in the official guide), though I have yet to test it you can add the Bluetooth switch changes according to this guide here> http://dailyblogged....h-onoff-switch/
  2. Areca RAID Controller for boot volume

    Hi there, I'm in the midst of building an Areca based Hackintosh myself, but it's by no means an easy feat. I've just finished with an almost perfect-build Sandy Bridge Hackintosh myself using an Asus P8Z68 V Pro board with an Intel Core i5 2500K chip. Booting in with ######/###### with a copy of Lion 10.7, I've managed to get everything going including the network card, sound (full 5.1) and graphics (MSI GTXZ 560Ti 448 running CI and QE). My instructions are found on the last page here > http://www.osx86.net...&id=2074&page=7 (which incidentally is the link to the drivers for my graphics card). Anyways back to the RAID, I assume to get it going you need to get at least Lion 10.7.2 on the install because according to this link > http://forums.macrum...=1174773&page=2 using Lion 10.7 alone is a disaster for Areca cards because the initial built-in RAID driver in this build caused the RAIDs to be broken up and unreadable, resulting in loss of data on ANY attached Areca RAID (as one user showed). You need to update to Lion 10.7.2 to get the proper OSX Areca support. To do this I would suggest you run ###### installed on a single drive with Lion 10.7 (it's much better than iATKos I think) and then with the latest version of ######, combo-update your drive to 10.7.2 or 10.7.3. Once that's done and you've checked that Lion works (and you've install the necessary working network card drivers for Internet access) you should be able to install your Areca drivers on that drive for the RAID as this link shows > http://www.appleknac...om/archives/309 and then run the Areca software via the terminal to format the drive. But you may not be able to boot from the Areca RAID, as according to the specs the 1280 ML doesn't support it.
  3. Kext help

    I'm sorry but I can't....forum (and copyright) rules prevent me from doing so. If you can't download that file you won't be able to get these either. I suggest you just change your browser or check your network card.
  4. I'm trying to install Leopard 10.5.6 onto the HP Mini 5101. Has anybody tried this out yet? If so what drivers/kext/setup is best recommended, plus kexts to use for the Boot 132 iso?
  5. Kext help

    I am surprised! Usually newbies to Macs I would think are quite scared to be playing around with the internal codes of a machine, much less play around with the machine or interface. I am guessing you are using OSX86 tools to get the above information? One word of warning.....if your machine is currently working I would suggest you not mess around with any internal kexts or files, as it may screw up your setup, especially if your drive is working. If your drives were NOT working, you wouldn't have gotten that far (to use the info-check facility of OSX86 tools). But if you know what you are doing....download the zip file on the page (press the green button), right-click your mouse and Save As/Download File As onto your desktop. If you are using Mac OSX (which I assume you are ) double-click it and it should come up as a mounted white drive. Double click on the main package inside it, either a colourful installer icon or yellow box ending in .PKG and run through the menus (Next, Install etc). You should have it installed onto your main OSX86 drive. For your Intel related queries, unfortunately you may have to read up on how to edit them (search for this on the Insanelymac site). It looks like you need an updated IOATAFamily.kext which is a package that will contain the right parameters, and copy this into your /System/Library/Extensions folder. There is one you can try > LSL's v4.4 zip download > http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=86167, which contains this edited driver within its KEXT folder. Simply copy the kext by opening up the /Systems/Library/Extensions folder on your OSX86 drive, and drag it in. Then using Terminal (found under Applications > Utilities) type: sudo su (then press Enter and type in your password when it asks you) cd /System/Library/Extensions sudo chown -R root:wheel IOATAFamily.kext sudo chmod -R 755 IOATAFamily.kext sudo kextload IOATAFamily.kext sudo diskutil repairpermissions / sudo rm -rf /System/Library/Extensions.mkext sudo rm -rf /System/Library/Extensions.kextcache reboot This should allow your system to boot with the new set of updated ICH9 drivers (presumably for SATA). As for the Intel HD sound, I think you need to find this out yourself. I don't have an answer for this other than you try booting up with the Dell Boot 132 iso disk as it contains HDAEnabler.kext which should start up your HD audio. (What I have given you above is what I think needs to be done, any changes made is at your own risk)
  6. Leopard 10.5.5 (almost working)

    Hi geek3, I have a similar setup with a 9800GT card and Soundmax 1986A, but I'm using an Asus P5-VD2-VM board and both are working fine. First of all I would advise trying the following: 1) Download the Dell XPS Boot132 iso disk from this thread > http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php...aded&start= and try to boot with that. This should solve your initial 0MB VRAM issue and allow you to work with your setup. 2) Grab your soundcard's vendor and device keys from Windows (if possible). Follow these guides > http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=36764 (read the appendix here >http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=18642) as you will need the keys should the following not work. 3) To add sound, get the ALC883.pkg.zip and HDA.zip files mentioned here > http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=157096 Then go into Terminal and delete AppleAC97Audio.kext and AppleAzaliaAudio.kext: cd /System/Library/Extensions sudo rm -rf /System/Library/Extensions/AppleAC97Audio.kext sudo rm -rf /System/Library/Extensions/AppleAzaliaAudio.kext Unzip HDA.zip and ALC883.zip onto your desktop. Drag AppleHDA.kext into your /System/Library/Extensions folder onto your OSX86 Mac HD, then run/double-click the ALC883 package installer to load the driver. In Terminal type: sudo diskutil repairpermissions / sudo rm -rf /System/Library/Extensions.mkext sudo rm -rf /System/Library/Extensions.kextcache reboot You should have sound at this point! 4) To get graphics, install Aquamac's Nvidia 9 series MacbookPro drivers and install them > http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/lofiversi...hp/t131914.html Then install NVInstaller .52.pkg > http://scottdangel.com/blog/?page_id=20 That should do it!
  7. 5KPL/1600 , e8400 and 9800GT

    Swathe, Did you try and download Aquamac's 9 series installer? (using the Macbookpro update drivers)?It should work with the 9600
  8. Been installing OSX86 on two separate machines (Asus P5VD2-VM with Nvidia 9800GT and Lenovo A39 with Nvidia 7500 LE), and I've had success with one of them (on the Asus, including working ethernet + +graphics + sound on Soundmax AD1986) with LSL's install method. With installing the Lenovo, I'd been trying pcwiz's Slimboot132 GUI, but I'd been having loads of problems getting it to work. Whenever I burned a disk after completing a kext build, the slimboot132 disk, once booted in the machine (any, including the Asus) always ends up with the comments 'Attempting to check CPU multiplier) and the machine restarts. Now I have installed 10.5.6 on the drive via LSL's external method, but I still can't get access to the install, and I am wondering if it's to do with the Slimbuild program being faulty. Has anyone had this before?
  9. Kext help

    Hi MT, For your Ethernet you can try using the Realtek R1000 driver from Sourgeforge > http://sourceforge.net/projects/realtekr1000/. Unzip the files and run the install package within it. This should sort out your Ethernet. As for your ICH9 issues the driver you can use is LSL's guide here > http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=86167 as his setup is ICH9 based. You need to download his v.4.4 package and just pick out the IOATAFamily.kext file to install within your 10.5 setup. If the above install fails I would suggest either: a) Copy and paste the R1000.kext driver into /System/Library/Extensions and then chmod & chown the file before rebooting and see if that still works Making your own Boot 132 disk with your relevant kexts (ones that worked, including LSL's IOATAFamily kext & R1000 kext), or c) Using LSL's method, after updating the install drive to 10.5.6 via another machine, edit his post-patch.sh file and add your own kexts & settings (including YOUR video drivers - he has an ATI setup installed, which if you use NVidia must be removed) for this at the preboot patch point. This would definitely ensure your system works up to scratch. I would also suggest making a note of your BIOS settings, and arranging your DVD cables so that the DVD drive is on Cable Select but under a primary socket, and your HD also on Cable Select but on the secondary one. This would make it easier for the OS to detect your setup. I installed 10.5.6 into one of my Asus machines (P5-VD2-VM with Nvidia 9800GT) using LSL's v.4.4 method above. Booting with the Dell Inspiron XPS Boot 132 CD from here > http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php...aded&start= and starting up with -v -f cpus=1 and -v -x cpus=1, I so far got good results with this setup. My gfx goes up to 1600 x 1200 res and I even see my Ethernet card which is similar to your one.
  10. Fix for Soundmax, ADI and maybe other soundboards

    Did you add ADS78 into the AppleAC97CodecAD198x kext? And you sure its AD1986A and not AD1986 HD? If it is HD you'll need to follow Tarugas method. I'm using JAS 10.4.8. Anything less or different I don't think is gonna work. You're welcome.
  11. Fix for Soundmax, ADI and maybe other soundboards

    llauqsd,First off, what is your codec's model? Are you sure you are using an Analog Device (AD) 1986? And what is the string for your ICH7 controller? It may not be 0x27d88086 - this varies from system to system.Follow my guide of using Windows or Linux device properties to find out the correct strings for your codec and ICH7 audio controller. The problem is most likely there. IOHDAudioFamily should normally be in the /Extensions as far as I recall.Assuming you've changed all the other files in my guide, to make it work properly simply do this:sudo cp -R /System/Library/Extensions/AppleAzaliaAudio.kext/Contents/PlugIns/IOHDAudioFamily.kext /System/Library/Extensionssudo rm -rf /System/Library/Extensions/AppleAzaliaAudio.kext/Contents/PlugIns/IOHDAudioFamily.kextsudo rm -rf /System/Library/Extensions.mkextsudo rm -rf /System/Library/Extensions.kextcachesudo kextload /System/Library/Extensions/AppleAzaliaAudio.kextsudo kextcache -k /System/Library/Extensionsreboot
  12. AppleHDA Solution - Work in progress

    Gecko, Follow my guide here > http://forum.insanelymac.com/index.php?sho...mp;#entry476428
  13. Fix for Soundmax, ADI and maybe other soundboards

    I have just corrected my guide above. It should work in 99% of cases with those using Soundmax chipsets. As far as I know, on some AD AC97 chips like 1888 it will give you full 6 channel sound plus input, while some HD chips like AD1986HD it can achieve 2 channel sound with no input. I think the reason for this is the HD chipsets need to use AppleHDA to control the codec. You can also double check your system after installation using System Profiler > Extensions and check if the following files are in place to be working: AppleAC97Audio AppleAC97AudioIntel or AppleAC97AudioVIA AppleAzaliaAudio AppleAzaliaController
  14. Fix for Soundmax, ADI and maybe other soundboards

    Acumos, Your soundcard is a AD1981HD. HD means that the card may no longer support AC97. However on another machine I have a AD1986A codec which is according to my Windows, a HD card. I assumed it didn't work, but I got sound out of it. On some HD codecs its not 100% fully input and output, but at least you can get sound out of it. You will need the following things: 1) Vendor & Device IDs for your Codec (I know it already as 11d4 & 1981) - so your codec string is 0x11d41981. 2) Vendor & Device ID for your sound controller You can get the Sound Controller IDs from Windows. Go to Control Panel > System > Hardware > Device Manager > System Devices > Microsoft UAA Bus Driver for High Definition Audio > Properties > Details. As you have an Intel chipset it should say: PCI/VEN_8086 then read along the line to the next set of numbers. It should say something like DEV_27D8 (double check what yours say). Assuming the above is correct, this means the Vendor ID is 8086, and your Device ID is 27d8. Under the strings we input into the kexts this would be shown as 0x27d88086. 3) Get the numbers from the data sheet of the codec to create the ADS number for the AD198x.kext. In your case as yours is same as Params we'll use ADS72. So assuming we use the above codes, we do this: In Terminal (found under Applications > Utilities folder on Mac hard drive) type: sudo su Enter password (if asked) 1) Delete AppleHDA.kext by typing: sudo rm -rf /System/Library/Extensions/AppleHDA.kext sudo rm -rf /System/Library/Extensions.mkext sudo rm -rf /System/Library/Extensions.kextcache 2) Type: cd /System/Library/Extensions/AppleAC97Audio.kext/Contents/PlugIns/AppleAC97AudioIntelICH.kext/Contents sudo pico Info.plist Search for (use hotkey= ctrl + w): <key>IOPCIPrimaryMatch</key> change the string under Intel ICH6 and Nvidia AC97 sections to: <string>0x27d88086</string> In the case of the Nvidia section, place the string in front of the other existing IDs like this: <string>0x27d88086 0x27de8086</string> Ctrl+O to save, Ctrl+X to quit chown -R root:wheel Info.plist chmod -R 644 Info.plist 3) Edit AppleAzaliaAudio.kext. Type: sudo pico /System/Library/Extensions/AppleAzaliaAudio.kext/Contents/info.plist Search for (use hotkey= ctrl + w): <key>IOHDAudioCodecVendorID</key> change the string to: <string>0x11d41981</string> Ctrl+O to save, Ctrl+X to quit chown -R root:wheel Info.plist chmod -R 644 Info.plist 4) Edit AppleAzaliaController.kext: sudo pico /System/Library/Extensions/AppleAzaliaAudio.kext/Contents/PlugIns/AppleAzaliaController.kext/Contents/Info.plist Search for (use hotkey= ctrl + w): <key>IOPCIPrimaryMatch</key> change the string to: <string>0x27d88086</string> Ctrl+O to save, Ctrl+X to quit chown -R root:wheel Info.plist chmod -R 644 Info.plist 5) Change the AppleAC97CodecAD198x.kext file: sudo pico /System/Library/Extensions/AppleAC97Audio.kext/Contents/PlugIns/AppleAC97CodecAD198x.kext/Contents/Info.plist Add ADS72 under <string>IOAC97CodecDevice</string>: <string>IOAC97CodecDevice</string> <key>PNPVendorID</key> <string>ADS72 ADS75 ADS74 ADS73</string> Ctrl+O to save, Ctrl+X to quit chown -R root:wheel Info.plist chmod -R 644 Info.plist 6) Clean up the system: In Terminal, type: cd /System/Library/Extensions/ chown -R root:wheel AppleAzaliaAudio.kext chmod -R 755 AppleAzaliaAudio.kext chown -R root:wheel AppleAC97Audio.kext chmod -R 755 AppleAC97Audio.kext sudo diskutil repairpermissions / sudo kextload /System/Library/Extensions/AppleAzaliaAudio.kext kextcache -k /System/Library/Extensions/ reboot Do remember to replace my Intel controller device ID with your correct one for it to work!
  15. Fix for Soundmax, ADI and maybe other soundboards

    (after editting all relevant kexts) (if still in pico editor program > Ctrl+O to save, Ctrl+X to quit) Then type: chown -R root:wheel Info.plist chmod -R 644 Info.plist (you do these to all the editted kexts), use cd / to change to relevant directories ie. cd /System/Library/Extensions/AppleAC97Audio.kext After chowning and chmodding all Info.plists, clean up the system. In Terminal, type: cd /System/Library/Extensions/ chown -R root:wheel AppleAzaliaAudio.kext chmod -R 755 AppleAzaliaAudio.kext chown -R root:wheel AppleAC97Audio.kext chmod -R 755 AppleAC97Audio.kext sudo diskutil repairpermissions / sudo kextload /System/Library/Extensions/AppleAzaliaAudio.kext kextcache -k /System/Library/Extensions/ reboot
