  1. AppleHDA for Dell Latitude E6400, IDT 92HD71B7

    Works great on my M4400 running 10.9.4! One thing to note is that under 10.9.4, vanilla AppleACPIPlatform (v2.0) is required for this to work. When I was running v1.3.5 in order to resolve a boot issue it wouldn't work at all.
  2. GA-G31M-ES2L

    Hey, thanks for posting a nice neat pack like that… I have a G31M-ES2L v1.1 as well, but I'm curious about something. Up until now I've never used ACPIMonitor.kext, IntelCPUMonitor.kext, or NVClockX.kext (my card is an nVidia 8600GTS and works with Chameleon's nvidia boot flag). What do they do on this particular motherboard?
  3. Indeed, just thought I'd ask to see if someone else had been through a similar experience. Yeah, I read about that and gave it a try to no avail. I've also tried various other things people have claimed to work, including booting OS X in safe mode and booting into Windows and then back into OS X. Nothing works.
  4. In my ventures of trying to get my old iSub USB subwoofer working, I've become curious of something. While 10.6 does not support the iSub at all, many 10.5.5-10.5.8 users have reported that theirs work fine. As far as I know, the support for this device lies within AppleUSBAudio.kext. This is where the question comes in. Is it safe to use kexts from 10.5 in 10.6 or are the two operating systems too different? If anybody has knowledge of this particular kext, that would be welcome too.
  5. I'm running vanilla 10.6.7 with whatever version of Chameleon that Kakewalk makes use of. The disk is set up as only a single partition. Would it be difficult to create another partition on it and get Windows installed and bootable without rendering OS X unbootable?
  6. Thanks for the replies, guys! I read somewhere that while the GTX 470/480 were working, it was only "barely" and that their performance was terrible. Is there any truth to this? Radeon is option #2 for me. Beside nVidia cards typically playing nicer with OS X/Linux, I tend to like their cards better anyway. If all else fails, I can accept the GTX 285. Would have preferred something more powerful to match this build's OC'd 4Ghz Core i5, but ya gotta do what ya gotta do, right?
  7. What cards would be the best choices for relatively painless installation and use? I'm looking to game in OS X with it, so it must be fully working. From what I gather, the Geforce GTX2xx series works quite well, but don't cards like the Geforce GTX4xx series and Radeon 5xxx series pretty much crush it in performance?
  8. If you could link it, that would indeed be appreciated. My main concern when trying to put together an i3 build was finding a motherboard that wasn't going to be a pain in the rear when installing OS X and wasn't terribly expensive.
  9. I just realized that I posted this in the wrong forum, and thus posted it here, in its appropriate place. Sorry. Please allow posters to delete their own topics! Anyway - So I may be building a hackintosh for my roommate in the near future to upgrade him from his aging 2.1Ghz iMac G5. What he'll be using it for mostly is normal college stuff, normal consumer stuff, and playing WoW. Here's the build I have set up at the moment: - GIGABYTE G41M-ES2L Mobo - 2.93Ghz Wolfdale Core 2 Duo - 4GB DDR2 SDRAM (2GBx2) - nVidia GeForce 9800GT (probably 512mb, but may go for 1GB model) - Samsung Spintpoint F3 500GB HD - LITE-ON DVD-RW - 400W PSU - Antec 300 Case - 21.5" 1920x1080 Display This all rings up to ~$500, not including the display. I built a hackintosh based on the G31M-ES2L back in spring 2009 for my younger brother, and it runs well to this day despite having no maintenance of any sort done on it. I expect similar results from the G41M, plus it will be drop-dead easy to set up with Kakewalk. Are there any changes you guys would make? Personally, I'd like to set him up with an i3 build, if nothing else simply for vastly better upgradability, but socket 1156 mobos are much more expensive.
  10. I'm a total idiot and just realized this was posted in the wrong forum. Please delete this post, and consider allowing posters to delete their threads. Sorry for the trouble. Link to new thread is here: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=233345
  11. Hey guys! Back in April or so of last year, I built a hackintosh for my younger brother before leaving for college. His old analog audio headset worked fine with it back then, without a problem. However, the headset broke, and he bought a new one (also analog). For whatever reason, OS X refuses to use the microphone on it. So now I figure the best solution would be to get him a USB headset, since it's least likely to have problems. Does anybody have specific recommendations of headsets that are known to work with Hackintosh builds? For that matter, will pretty much any USB headset work with a Hackintosh? He is currently running vanilla 10.5.6. Thanks!
  12. Retail Leopard 10.5.6 Gigabyte GA-G31M-ESL2

    Ok, I'm really starting to think that either 10.5.6 is required or I'm just missing something. The Pystar R1000 kext doesn't seem to do anything either As with all other setups, ethernet simply shows "unplugged" whether it actually is or not. It's not the cable, because I'm now using one that worked perfectly prior to connecting it to the PC.

    Thanks! I'll certainly give this a shot before reinstalling to 10.5.6. Does it need to be dropped in IONetworking.kext, or can it be put in the Extensions folder by itself?

    Just tried this kext with both with and without the EFI string. No dice. I'm working on getting a 10.5.6 install DVD, since it might require that the system be at least that version.
  15. Retail Leopard 10.5.6 Gigabyte GA-G31M-ESL2

    Yes, I'd appreciate that if you wouldn't mind. Do you think that the version number would affect it? My installer disc does 10.5.4, not 10.5.6...
