  1. Thanks mate! No hurt feelings . I like Keshav's findings but I can't find time to experiment those. And this forum is a nice place for sharing knowledge.
  2. I can't understand these measures.either. I don't see any unfair competition between these 2 sites. Complete different fields here.
  3. I followed your guide for my Asus P5Q3 Deluxe Wifi-AP@n but couldn't pass the empty grey screen. I tried every possible settings in bios to no avail. Then I switched from my AMD Radeon HD 6950 1 Gb to my old Nvidia 9600GT and everything went nice. Of course, I used your kext for NIC to be able to go online. Sound is never a problem for me as I got an external Creative USB sound card. I don't use DSDT.aml either, as my bios is modified for Dual Boot OSX (DSDT) and Windows7 (SLIC2.1 for HP/Compaq): P5Q3_2105_DSDT_SLIC21.zip
  4. P5Q séries & 10.6 (MAJ 23/07/10)

    J'ai une P5Q3 Deluxe aussi sous Snow Leopard/Win7/XP/Fedora12 et j'attends impatiemment ton tuto, en esperant que tu sois revenu des vacances.
  5. Here's my own patched BIOS for Asus P5Q3-Deluxe/WiFi @n (the latest) : P5Q3_2105_DSDT_SLIC21.zip As the label suggests, it's patched for Mac (DSDT) and Windows 7 (SLIC 2.1 for HP/COMPAQ). Enjoy dual-booting!
  6. Thanks a lot Keshav. You're the man. For various reasons I've given up GPT partitions but still monitoring this DUET stuff. I've downloaded your files already for future use. Keep it up.
  7. [HOW TO] ADI AD2000B Fully working

    Works on my P5Q3 Deluxe @wifi as long I don't max the volume. Then there's an awful whirring sound when I turn the volume knob past the middle position.
  8. More on my troubleshooting: Of course I've already tried the steps you suggested and more. I even reinstalled Windows. All I could get back was the ability to "boot from file". But I kept getting this message, when I chose "<EFI_SYSTEM_PARTITION>/efi/microsoft/boot/bootmgrfw.efi": Status: 0xc0000225 Info: The boot selection failed because a required device is inaccessible. Finally solved the issue by disconnecting my second hard disk (MBR). Weird
  9. Thanks for your fast reply I didn't try to boot DUET from HDD either. I know Chameleon or PCEFI 10.6 can be installed on HDD without hassle but for my experiment I'm using my pendive . No, sadly I'm not a programmer so I'm stuck with the DUET pendrive. Speaking of that, yesterday I made an acronis image backup of Win7 partition with it's "plus pack" for GPT HDDs. Perhaps just a coincidence, since then I can't boot into Win7 anymore . In UEFI menu I can't find anymore my HDD's EFI in device list, just the EFI_DUET and EFI SECTOR of my DVD. So no way to "boot from file" -> bootmgfw.efi. Any idea for solving this problem? Here's what I tried, to no avail: - boot recovery from Win7 install DVD - From Linux, deleted and recreated EFI partition with gdisk with the correct type : ef00 . then copied the necessary files in their original folders.
  10. Hi Keshav from Chennai, here's Christian from Pondy (in France now)! Thanks a lot for your tutorial and the USB key trick for emulating UEFI on my BIOS only Asus P5Q3 Deluxe motherboard. I managed to install a dual boot UEFI-GPT system (Snow Leopard/Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit) on a brand new Sata SSD. Pure UEFI-GPT scheme: 0: GUID_partition_scheme *64.0 GB disk0 1: EFI 209.7 MB disk0s1 (FAT32 - created automatically by Snow Leopard Installation, updated automatically by Win7 Installation) 2: Apple_HFS Snow 32.0 GB disk0s2 (HFS+ - for Snow Leopard) 3: Microsoft Reserved 134.2 MB disk0s3 (FAT32 - created automatically by Win7 Installation) 4: Microsoft Basic Data 31.7 GB disk0s4 (NTFS - for Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit) For the time being, for SL I have to boot in "AHCI" mode with a chameleon USB key, and for Win7 I have to switch to "Enhanced IDE" mode with your UEFI USB key. Is there no way to compile an "AHCI" compatible EFI_DUET? If you can do that I'll be pleased not to switch between AHCI and IDE mode, then I'll try to have a single USB key with both Chameleon and UEFI in it (if that's possible at all).
  11. QEMU

    Thanks a lot Keshav for your compiled firmwares. By the way, the embedded link for EFI_DUET.exe is incorrect, only the caption is OK.
  12. OSX86 on Intel P45 chipset?

    Sorry, as it's been mentioned, this is for P5Q3 Deluxe only. It won't work for your board. By the way, for those who are interested in modding the bios, follow this wonderful Howto by David Tsu: A guide for modifying DSDT for AMI bios I followed it and came up with this: P5Q3 Deluxe Bios v.2105 with modded DSDT (Leopard) and SLIC 2.1 Hewlett Packard (Win7): P5Q3_2105_DSDT_SLIC21.zip
  13. 10.5.7 has been released

    Thanks for your advice. Didn't know about "Extra" thing. So I dig up a bit and here's what I did: -created '/Extra/Extensions/" folder and put your 2 kexts in it. - typed this in Terminal: sudo chown -R 0:0 /Extra/ sudo chmod -R 755 /Extra/ sudo kextcache -a i386 -m /Extra/Extensions.mkext /Extra/Extensions -> got dependancy error on "HDAEnabler.kext", but cache was made. -rebooted with -f but audio is not working What am I missing? Do I have to rename your kexts or put the vanilla "AppleHDA.kext" too in Extra/Extensions?
  14. 10.5.7 has been released

    Here's my feedback after my update from 10.5.5 to 10.5.7 with comboupdate(~700Mb), on my intel core 2 duo hackintosh with EFI 9: -saved all the necessary kexts needed for my ASUS P5Q3 Deluxe MB (LAN, sound, graphics, Sata/IDE) -used netkas's tips to get rid of the AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement.kext as soon as the update copies it in "Extensions" folder: while sleep 1 ; do rm -rf /System/Library/Extensions/AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement.kext ; done and edited "/System/InstallAtStartup/scripts/1" by replacing the string Dont Steal Mac OS X.kext with dsmos.kext . -edited Info.plist of "NVDANV50Hal.kext" to reflect my Nvidia 9600GT's dev id(0x062210de).I didn't touch anything in "com.apple.Boot.plist"'s string which I'd already inserted to enable QE/CI. -edited Info.plist of "yukon2.kext" inside "IONetworkingFamily.kext" to reflect my Marvell Yukon-88E8056's dev id(0x436411ab). -rebooted and everything works perfectly "out of the box" after the second automatic reboot,except sound. NB: I didn't use any old saved kexts. If anyone patched the new "AppleHDA.kext" to make it work with my ADI AD2000B sound chip, I'll be glad to get back my sound again. The other option is to use the old patched kext, but I don't want that. Here are the edited new kexts for those lazy bastards : NVDANV50Hal.kext.zip IONetworkingFamily.kext.zip
