  1. ATI Radeon 6xxx, working QE/CI

    Hmm, maybe the problem is that iPhoto doesn't properly understand my wide gamut monitor? I downloaded the Aperture 3 trial and it had no such problems! I also found out that it had some welcome features missing in iPhoto so I bought it from Appstore, quite cheap too. :-)
  2. ATI Radeon 6xxx, working QE/CI

    Thanks for the instructions, I quite easily managed to get my new Asus 6850 working. I updated to 10.6.7 and then installed the MPB2011 10.6.7 ATI Kexts and changed GraphicsEnabler=no The top menu is transpanent, acceleration seems to be working. But I have one quite serious problem. In iPhoto, when editing pictures I get degraded image quality, somehow it shows things wrong while in the edit mode. Colors get "cut off" and in general the image looks way different that it really is. This only happens in edit mode after doing some editing and when I go back to just viewing, they seem to be OK, even after the editing. When I go back to edit mode, those edited pictures still look strange in that mode. I suspect that this has something to do with the video card. Any ideas?
  3. DSDT Database

    Well, I used directly the dsdt I mentioned in my post and it worked fine without any changes (but only after I updated my BIOS to the newest one). I just added the Time Machine bit in there and recompiled.
  4. DSDT Database

    Asus P5K-E/WIFI-AP with 4GB RAM and 3 internal hard disks Don't know the revision BIOS 1305 (the newest one currently) USB's and Hard Disks are properly seen as internal. Time Machine works. Manual sleep and waking up from sleep probably works (except for me, look below). Shutdown works. I used this guide (including the kexts) to install SL from original DVD via a Leopard install: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php...p;#entry1269543 Then replaced the boot with Netkas PCEFI 10.3: http://netkas.org/?p=224 Then took the dsdt from here: http://www.infinitemac.com/f57/how-to-snow.../post34233.html And added this Time Machine fix to that dsdt.dsl and recompiled to DSDT.aml: http://www.infinitemac.com/f57/how-to-snow.../post35092.html The GraphicsEnabler option in PCEFI 10.3 doesn't work for my Gainward Radeon HD4850 512MB, so I have to use the EVOenabler.kext (and added id in the ATI4800Controller.kext) instead. That's why I get corrupted graphics when waking up from sleep. Sleep would possibly work otherwise. Thanks to all the wise and helpful people, and of course Apple as well (please make a sensible mid-price quadcore tower without a fixed display and graphics). EDIT: Replaced boot with Netkas EFI 10.5 and turned on GraphicsEnabler. Graphics work now without EVOenabler.kext and even waking up from sleep works fine! dsdt_for_Asus_P5K_E_Wifi_AP.zip
  5. Okay guys, here's your solution for the noise problem: With the stock cooler of Sapphire HD 3850 256MB: As I told before, in Windows with ATI-tool "scan for artifacts" temp went to over 80C and the fan to very noisy full speed in 10 minutes. I bought a Zalman VF900-Cu cooler for 30 euros. Installed in about half an hour, not difficult at all - just have to be careful. Fan speed at the lowest possible all the time (can adjust with a controller that comes with the cooler, not controlled by software) - practically silent. With this: The same test doesn't go over 60C. And it-is-silent! So, I can play Windows games silently and of course this will be as silent and not even get as hot on the Hackmack side. I am really happy about this, totally worth the 30€ and a bit of work changing the cooler. P.S. The Zalman is quieter (=silent) than the stock cooler even in Windows desktop mode...
  6. Thanks for doing all that. I actually bought a Zalman VF900-Cu cooler this morning and will install it tonight. I will test in Windows side if I can keep it cool on high stress with the fan on a quiet setting. With the original cooler it went to 100% (super noisy) and temp was 80C after 10 minutes of high stress. Even the idle noise from the fan was too much for me, so went for the Zalman. Let's see how it goes. The fan will be at the same speed all the time. Anyway, is there a way to see the temp of the card on a Hackmac?
  7. That might be a viable option, I had a Zalman cooler on an older card and it was really quiet. I'd loose the warranty on the card though, but as long I'd be happy... I'll investigate and think about this.
  8. My Radeon X1950Pro broke, and I got a HD 3850 256mb as a replacement. I managed to get it working with the instructions from the 1st post - I had to remove previous Natit.kext from single user mode (-s) first and the boot into safe mode (-x) to install the HD 3850 things. But I also have the noisy fan problem. This is bad for me because I am supposed to make music on the Hackmac side (even bought Logic Studio for that). How can I see the video card temp. in OSX? I guess I'll wait for a while if somebody comes up with a solution. But if not, what video card would be the best option for a quiet hackmack operation but still powerful enough on the Windows side for playing modern games? Nvidia 8800GTS 512MB? P.S. One improvement is that I can now shut down (vanilla kernel) - I couldn't with the X1950Pro, had to use the power switch. Thanks, BTW.
  9. Work x1950gt pro ! Dev_ID = 0x72801002 and 0x72881002 !

    I updated to 10.5.2 with the instructions from the Leopard installation forum here (did note replace any kexts from the backup) -> Graphics still OK, then did the Leopard graphics update from System Update -> QE not working, saw it from window tearing -> installed Bronya's 10.5.2 driver from first post here -> Everything seems to be fine! Thanks again, and wasn't very complicated.
  10. Logic 8 : extra stuff

    Whatever, dude. From the forum rules: "No posting of direct or indirect links to warez or pirated pieces of software, this includes cracks, serials and torrents." Oh well, it doesn't actually say anything about asking for them. :-)
  11. Logic 8 : extra stuff

    See this thread and the last post by moderator: http://forum.insanelymac.com/index.php?showtopic=84102 Anyway, you don't need all the stuff you are asking for free to "keep your skills fresh". That was my point.
  12. Logic 8 : extra stuff

    And you need those Jampacks for that? Protools even? Seriously...
  13. Logic 8 : extra stuff

    Silliest excuse I've read in a while. But...whatever.
  14. Logic 8 serial

    Simple. Buy Logic Express and sell it if you don't like it.
  15. Logic 8 : extra stuff

    Just buy the damn thing. Logic is really affordable for what it is so I for one would feel stupid pirating it.
