  1. I'm having issues updating to 10.7.3 from 10.7.0. I've tried it a few times doing it different ways and get the same result. After update, restart, and eventually get a circle with a line through it over the gray screen with the chromed Apple logo. Everytime I've used the combo update from Apple that you can download. I've tried with older and and new cameleon, but I don't think that's the problem. I've tried with my working 10.7.0 Extra folder and the lastest on attached to the first post of this thread. Any ideas what could be holding me up. Thanks!
  2. Thank you for the terrific guide and files! Incredibly easy install. I'm still working on getting audio to work but I got my EVGA 9500 GTA 512MB to be accelerated by putting the NVEnabler_64.kext for Snow Leopard in the Extra folder. I found the Kext here: http://www.kexts.com/view/118-snow_leopard_nvenabler.html NVEnabler_64.kext.zip
  3. This is how I upgrade my iPC 10.5.6 installed UD3R hackintosh to 10.5.8. I'm not sure if I'm doing everything correct but I've been using my 10.5.8 system for several months without any issues that I didn't have under the original 10.5.6 installation. First of all I install iPC 10.5.6 as outlined in my UD3R guide here... http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=159254 After that install the 10.5.8 combo updater from Apple. When prompted to restart, I reboot and boot to the iPC disc (F12 on the UD3R to enter a boot selector) Under customize installation I turn off everything except the first Voodoo kernel option After the installation is finished and it restarts I hit F8 to enter startup options Type -f and hit enter to boot The next thing I do after the computer boots is restart using the iPC disc again This time I install the drivers but no fixes (Ethernet, Sound etc, everything outlined in my original 10.5.6 guide) Once the install is finished I reboot without any boot flags I used OSX86Tools to install the HDAEnabler.kext to get sound working Once the install is finished restart using the boot flag -f Now everything works I tried installing the drivers at the same time as the kernel once and I couldn't get the machine to boot so I'm not sure what is going on there, but when I installed them separately it works fine. If trying this install method I would first try it on a clean drive without any files so you can make sure it works for your system.
  4. I have no idea. That's a little over my head. I tried to stick to the simplest setup that I could. If you just accessed the RAID on the Windows side it'd probably work but then you might have to adjust your BIOS settings (turn RAID off) everytime you boot to the Mac OS. I also plugged in a Netgear wg111v2 WiFi USB stick that I had lying around and installed Netgear's drivers for it in OS X and it works like a charm. They go for only $10 to $15 on eBay.
  5. NEW INSTALL: Gigabyte GA-EP45-UD3R

    Sleep does kill my USB 2 speeds, at least for external drives. That JMicron kext worked like a charm. I'm running IDE drives and dual booting with XP on the drives no problem for several days and no kernel panics!
  6. NEW INSTALL: Gigabyte GA-EP45-UD3R

    Would def prefer a retail install as I actually own the Leopard disc which I bought for my ancient G4 but since I got the iPC working so well I've been reluctant to try. I'll try the sleep/USB speed test tonight and report back in this post. Thanks again for the heads up on the JMicron kext, can't wait to test that out too. I do get the device removal error for USB drives after waking from sleep, but the funny thing is I always got that with my G4 running Leopard too. Very annoying and worrying to me if any of my files were being corrupted.
  7. Thanks for the heads up Eliade, if that JMicron driver does fix the kernal panics then that's going to save me from having to get a SATA drive for my Windows install!
  8. NEW INSTALL: Gigabyte GA-EP45-UD3R

    Wanted to add my UD3R thread link to this thread. I have the BIOS and iPC 10.5.6 settings that I used to get my UD3R up and running. The only nagging issue that I'm having now is my time doesn't stick. It's always changing on me even without dual booting. http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=159254 In short here are my BIOS settings and iPC install settings... UD3R BIOS Settings (Load optimized defaults first, then change to these) Standard CMOS Features ---- Change the Date and Time to the correct information first of all ---- Drive A - Disabled (We don't need the floppy drive port to be turned on, simple housecleaning here) Advanced CMOS Features ---- First Boot Device - CDROM ---- Second Boot Device - Hard Disk ---- Init Display First - PEG (PCI Express Graphics, PCI should work too) Integrated Peripherals ---- SATA RAID/AHCI Mode - AHCI ---- SATA Port0-3 Native Mode - Enabled ---- USB Mouse Support - Enabled ---- Onboard SATA/IDE Device - Disabled (This completely turns off the single green IDE connector on the motherboard) ---- Onboard Serial Port 1 - Disabled ---- Onboard Parallel Port - Disabled Power Management Setup ---- PME Event Wake Up - Disabled (Wake by LAN port) ---- Power On by Ring - Disabled (For use with a modem, we're not using this) ---- HPET Mode - 64 bit (High Precision Event Timer, something to do with CPU power management I think) iPC Install Settings - OSx86 10.5.6 ------ Drivers ------------ X Legacy Time Machine Fix ------------ Chipset Drivers ------------------ X Intel ICH10 SATA ------------ Audio Drivers ------------------ ALCxxx ------------------------ X ALC889A ------------------ Legacy AppleHDAß ------------------------ X ALC885/ALC889A ------------ Ethernet Drivers ------------------ X Realtek R1000 ------------ USB Drivers ------------------ X Patched USB Drivers ------------ Power Management ------------------ X PowerManagement Package ------ Fixes and Patches ------------ X Dual Boot Time Sync (if you plan on dual booting later) ------------ X Shutdown/Restart Fix ------------ AppleSMBIOS Patch ------------------ X SMBIOSResolver ------Applications ------------ X OSx86 Tools Utility (We'll use this to install our Kernal extensions later) ------------ X NTFS 3-G + MacFUSE MacFuse + NTFS (read/write to NTFS Windows volumes & partitions) Post install all I needed was a Kext for audio and video which I added as attachments to my thread.
  9. I have the E5300, 2.6 GHz Pentium Dual Core. http://processorfinder.intel.com/details.aspx?sSpec=SLB9U
  10. The specs on the UD3R list its FSB as 1600/1333MHz. Am I missing something?
  11. I think simply selecting Realtek R1000 in the iPC install did it. Originally I didn't do that. Just updated the post with my latest settings. I have it down to only installing one kext for audio and one for video after installing iPC. I also added the exact two kexts that I used for my installation as an attachment to the first post.
  12. Your guide on getting Time Machine worked. Also I have a new iPC install that has Time Machine working out of the box.
  13. You can try it. This thread/guide is for different hardware than yours. I'm going to do some more testing on the iPC settings. The audio ones don't seem to work no matter what I do. Can you post your XxX install settings?
  14. I'll try that mrfatboy, I did try Time Machine but got the networking error which looks like will be fixed by this.
  15. Thanks! I haven't checked to see if mine will go to sleep via the energy saver control panel yet, will do that. Does yours wake up on mouse or keyboard events? I haven't tried time machine yet, not sure if I'll be able to test that. Don't know the diff between NVKush and NVinstaller. NVKush was the first one I tried for my 9500 GT and it works like a charm so I didn't try anything else. Do you have the UD3R 1.0 or 1.1 board?
