  1. ATI Weird screen

    It was all working fine by replacing the ATI4800Controller.kext, ATIFramebuffer.kext and ATISupport.kext with the 10.6.2 version along with a modified EVOenabler.kext. However, I updated to 10.6.8 and I got that screen glitch error so I reinstalled again and now I cannot get my ATI 4870 HD to work.
  2. ATI Weird screen

    So basically, I have a ATI ASUS 4870 HD 512MB card. Really good card, if you ask me. I can boot into the system via -x however if I boot into the system normally, I get this screen. What is the cause of this? How can I fix it? Many thanks. Oh and I am running iAtkos S3 v2 10.6.3
  3. How do you update?

    I did it. I just ran the combo update from apple like you normally do if you owned a mac and its all good. Thanks
  4. How do you update?

    I have 1.6.2 installed, I used iATKOS S3 v2 distro and I've been told that 1.6.6 supports my gfx and wifi card but I do not know how to update. I have no idea, I did it once a long time ago and the whole system messed up. I'm such a confused child.
  5. Hey guys and girls, My name is SMCentral and I've been around the OSx86 scene for quite some time however I took a rather long break since all my OSx86 installations managed to break after playing around with kexts and stuff to make it work. Recently, I went to the USA and brought myself a Sony Vaio VPC F126FM laptop. (It's bloody amazing). I use Windows for a lot of stuff but I also want to use iOS for the stuff Windows fails to deliver (Really cool and easy iMovie. I need it in my life so badly......) Anyway, I was wondering if these specs are okay to run OSx86 and which version of OSx86 you recommend me to use. Specs are; Processor: Intel® Core i7 CPU Q 740 @ 1.73-2.93GHz Memory: (RAM) 6.00 GB Graphics Card: NVIDIA GeForce GT 330M 1GB Primary: hard disk 640GB OS: Windows 7 Ultimate Network Adapter: Marvell Yukon 88E8057 PCI-E Gigabit Ethernet Controller Network Adapter: Bluetooth Device (Personal Area Network) Network Adapter: Atheros AR9287 Wireless Network Adapter Network Adapter: Microsoft Virtual WiFi Miniport Adapter Please, Please, Please. Help me, with any information you have - I would really appreciated all the help I can get to get this beast to run iOS. Thank you for taking the time to read this post. I hope you've helped me today!
  6. serialATAPI

    Hey all. I keep getting this error upon boot, I have never started OS X successfully so it is a fresh install. How can I make it go away.... Thanks. SMCentral.
  7. Question: I installed the .bundle and the .zip kexts along with the OpenGL framework proved in this thread. I then repaired perms and rebooted. I now have my ideal screen res 1650x1050 however I do not have QE. Is there something I did not do or can do?

    Relax dude, you can dual boot with XP and OS X. You should really spend more time in the wiki, it will answer for many questions (http://wiki.osx86project.org/wiki/index.php/Main_Page); such as installation guides for dual booting with XP and OS X (http://wiki.osx86project.org/wiki/index.php/Installation_Guides). The guide is in there.
  9. E520 with a small amount of tweaking with the iPC disk = Holy Mac. I'm posting this from my Fakintosh. All cores working, ram too, 1650x1050 (No QE yet but after this reboot it will ), internet, no sound (Haven't installed the 9227 drivers yet.)
  10. iDeneb v1.4

    I bet you 100 bucks I could fix this. Is it a Intel ICH8R? Tell me what it is and also what previous version was you able to install? What you will need to do is get the correct code for your raid thingy and add it to AppleACHIPort.kext. Once I know the details I require, I'll write down everything you need to do.
  11. How to edit a .kext?

    Thanks dude. I think it didn't read my usb stick was cause its 16GB but it works fine in windows. Never the less, I resolved this situation with a sit down and read lots of README.txts and manuals on the internet. Thanks :-)
  12. How much hdd space does 10.5 take up?

    Installation: 6.58GB.
  13. Stuck at gray screen

    I installed iPC along with the X3000 intel graphic card drivers for my E520. On boot, I get stuck on a gray screen with the normal black and white osx curser and every 15 seconds, the screen flashs black. Can someone help me? I have the G965.
  14. How to edit a .kext?

    I want to edit AppleAHCIPort.kext however I do not have a OS X OS installed to go on. I keep getting a "Still waiting for ... device" when on -v so I heard that I must change the ICH8R code in that .kext in iPC. So I was wondering is there way to edit it in Windows or stick the disc in and use terminal? Could you give me the full list of commands and what to do. Cause I heard about a sudo cp command in terminal but when I tried it, it didn't want to look at my USB cause it wasn't mounted. However my USB didnt want to get mounted for some reason...
