  1. So you are running 10.5.8 fine? I upgraded to Chameleon v2 RC2 and same thing with the Kernel panics. I have the JMicronATAInjector.kext. The panic displays: "Backtrace coninues.... Kernel loadable modules in backtrace... com.apple.driver.AppleHDA(1.7.1a2)..... dependancy: com.apple.driver.DspFuncLib(1.7.1a2)... dependancy: com.apple.iokit.IOHDAFamily(1.7.1a2)... dependancy: com.apple.iokit.IOAudioFamily(1.6.9fc5)... com.apple.iokit.IOAudioFamily(1.6.9fc5)... dependancy: com.apple.kext.OSvKernDSPLib(1.1)..." Kernel version is new. 9.8.0. It seems to be an audio driver issue for me.
  2. My error. I updated my BIOS to get my CPU fan to work with PWM and I forgot to enable USB keyboard in the BIOS. I can now boot into safe mode. I will try to see what is going on.
  3. As far as I am aware the only way to pass audio through HDMI even in windows is to use the onboard SPDIF out (or the one on your sound card) connected to the video card and from that point it is all driver related in Windows. It's not like you can manually bypass it without OSX knowing. The drivers have to enable it. It would be sweet though. I just tested and my machine won't boot. Kernel Panic on boot up. I can't select and boot flags with chameleon since my KB doesn't work when it boots up.
  4. Native Blu-ray ripping in OS X

    This program is awesome. I can rip my Bluray collection and load it into Plex. I think the picture quality is better through Plex than my Samsung BD-P1500. Obviously both sources are the same but I had stutter and Jitter issues with the Samsung player. Constantly updating firmware to play the disks too is annoying. This is all through a Samsung LNT-4071f 120hz 1080p panel. The stutter issue has been a problem from the beginning with the early 120hz panels.
  5. Ok well after setting it to PWM mode and the fan still at full speed 2000rpm my Zalman 9900 was really loud. I knew something was not right so I googled PWM and the UD5 board model number. If you have a firmware older than the latest f8 BIOS then PWM does not work. I had a f7c version and as soon as I flashed to f8f it is now working and my fan is dead silent at around 980 rpm. You had a f8 version BIOS so that is why it was working for you Latest BIOS links http://forums.tweaktown.com/f69/gigabyte-latest-bios-28441/
  6. The NVIDIA 9500GT Thread

    I tried everything to get this to work using the OP's method but it just would not work for my Zotac 9500GT w/ DVI, HDMI, and Display Port. It would just not load the driver. I am running 10.5.7. I had the same NVCAP as the OP and created the EFI strings with OSx86 tools and edited the proper kext files with my device ID which was the same as the OP as well. It just would not want to work. i tried doing it in many different ways with repairing permissions and boot options and still got nowhere. I finally gave up and found this http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=133989. I started from step 2 and it worked perfectly. Everything is fully supported now and I can finally run Plex. Any ideas why the OP's method did not work? I see someone else in here got it working with the Zotac. It might have been a different version though since a few have different connectors.
  7. Thanks. I will give it a shot when I get home. I have the same board. I will be running stock speeds since I need it to be quiet. It's my HTPC.
  8. Hey guys just want to say thank you for all the advances on the OSx86 front. My old shuttle box died a couple months back and never got around to replace it. Last Sunday I randomly got the idea to build a new Hackintosh and deck it to replace my old HTPC setup (the shuttle box). I wanted to store my blurays and play them through Plex. Here is the beast I put together. Intel Core i7 920 Zalman CNPS9900LED w/AS5 Gigabyte GA-EX58-UD5 OCZ Platinum 6GB DDR3 1600 Pioneer BRD-203BKS Bluray Burner OCZ Summit 60GB SSD for my OS 3Ware 9650SE-4LPML Hardware RAID card w/ 4x Western Digital WD10EADS 1 TB drives in RAID5 (2.72TB total) Zotac GeForce 9500GT DVI, HDMI, and Display Port (wanted a low power low noise/heat for my HTPC) Coolermaster RS-700AMBA-D3 modular power supply 80 Plus certified Lian Li PC-C33B HTPC case This machine is extremely fast. I am using it for ripping my Bluray collection and random video encoding. I built this machine for a dedicated Plex box. I wanted it to be extremely fast and have a secure true hardware RAID solution to keep my stuff safe. Here is a quick XBench before I got the Video card fully supported. I disabled the video tests. I mainly wanted to see the Raid and SSD performance. Can anyone recommend the best program to test the HD speeds? http://lh6.ggpht.com/_VJI3RFcoMN0/SnUNNB00...Picture%201.png
  9. I have this same cooler and mine is at the normal setting right now. So you are saying I can turn it down with PWM in the BIOS? I will look into it. This is really the only fan making any noise in my system. Not overclocked since it is a HTPC. My idle temps are 37-38C like you mentioned. Very good cooler. Although it was about 1/2" too tall for my Lian Li PC-C33B. I carefully modded it to fit . I bent the pipes effectively shortening the unit a little more than 1/2". I then had to remount the fan using a new mount point. It now fits. Use the blue ports and put your boot disk in the Sata0 slot. The bottom one closest to the ram modules. Then you need to disable the Jmicron controller (it sucks) in the bios and use the ICH10R one set to AHCI. The setting in the BIOS is the top one "SATA RAID/AHCI Mode" to "AHCI". Then disable the one at the bottom of the same page. Look in the common problems on the wiki. I had the same issue and it was fixed by this easily. http://wiki.osx86project.org/wiki/index.ph...obo%2C_Scripted
  10. core i7, which mobo?

    i just went with the UD5 and i am very happy. It was a breeze to setup with DD's script. I believe the UD3R uses a different onboard audio that is not supported. There are some users in the UD5 thread that reported it. It should be fine if you use a supported soundcard.
  11. I just got the Zotac one since it has DVI, HDMI, and Display Port. Keep it Mac oriented. I just needed a simple car since all I will be using it for is Plex. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16814500112 I only tested DVI but I need to get the native drivers working. I will test the HDMI later.
  12. Using an HDTV as a monitor.

    I use a VGA cable on my Samsung 4071F to get rid of this issue. On my old TV it handled 1 to 1 pixel mapping and was fine with DVI-->HDMI. I wish there was a program that fixed this. Maybe switchresX
  13. Shuttle AMD64 help Leo4allv3 and nforce3...

    Well I just gave it some more tries and was playing around with the bios doing random stuff. This time it booted to the osx install loader. Now I'm back in my familiar domain. OSX is installing right now and hope it all goes well. Honestly don't know what I did different this time. I hit f8 on boot and passed no args to the darwin loader. It loaded right up. If this finishes I will donate a few bucks for a drink and your time. Thanks Eddie
  14. Shuttle AMD64 help Leo4allv3 and nforce3...

    It seems we have a very similar chipset. What options did you select when booting to get it to work? I also patched with the nforce thing. It got me past the kernal panics but not the "CODE SIGNING:..." error Yeah I think that is my problem. I'm following eddie closely in hopes that this will be the fix needed for me. Thanks for the heads up.
  15. Hey guys I haven't tried in a long time to get OSX running on my shuttle box. I would like to get any version of OSX on it since it's just sitting around. All my other comps are OSX. Anyways I am trying to install Leo4allv3 and it's not getting to the leopard install. It hangs up in the Darwin loader. I patched the ISO with the nforce thing and it got rid of the kernel panics. Now it hangs on some lines starting with "CODE SIGNING:..." or something similar. Is my hardware even compatible? I believe my AMD64 3200+ was one of the first batch when they came out and I think it is SSE2 only. I have read that this causes some issues plus having nforce3 chipset. If there is a better brew of OSx86 than Leo4allv3 to try for my specific system please point me in that direction because I'm stuck. Is this an EFI issue? It's not restarting it just hangs on the code signing thing. I let it sit overnight as well.
