  1. FYI, just upgraded to 10.7.1 with no issues. Only had to rollback AppleHDA, but that's to be expected now.
  2. I upgraded to the 10.6.8 Supplemental Update the day before I installed Lion. All I had to do to make audio come back was reinstall my old AppleHDA.kext.
  3. Upgrade to 10.6.5 went fine for me too. Now I'm contemplating installing Catri Bios.
  4. I'd like to know as well. I'm running the stock Lifehacker build with V3 of Stellarolla's installer. I haven't ever had any issues with previous updates.
  5. I'm using the TrendNet PIC NIC recommended in the Lifehacker guide, and am having no problems at all backing up with Time Machine to an SMB share on my Windows Home Server.
  6. Could not agree more. My old hackintosh ran a Pentium D 2140 just fine, since it had the same instruction set as an original Core processor. My current build is using a Q9400, which is clearly not the same as the CPU that was used in the LH guide.
  7. If it helps, I'll check to see which ports my Primary and Secondary are connected to later today.
  8. I'm using the exact same card as you (I even bought it at Best Buy). I'm having no issues whatsoever, but I'm not using HDMI, I'm using dual DVI monitors. Stella has said that there are issues with HDMI monitors on the build right now.
  9. BTW, auto sleep, sleep, and wake from sleep all are working with the v3 version of the installer under 10.6.2, even though I never added the new sleepenabler.kext. Do I need sleepenabler.kext and if so, what for?
  10. Working fine here too. Backed up the Extras folder from my v2 install, installed v3 to the drive, rebooted with no issues whatsoever and then had software update do its thing.
  11. It's not hard. Drag the Extras folder to the Trash. It's in the root of your system drive. Run the V3 installer, directing it to install to your system drive (just like you did when you originally installed the hack.
  12. I've been running Win 7 exclusively since the RC, so it's been a while since I've had to install XP. I do remember having to slipstream my hard drive controller's drivers into the XP install disc using nlite or AHCI wouldn't work. While you're at it, you might as well slipstream SP3 on to the disk and save yourself some time post install.
  13. Worked perfectly for me. This was the first time I've ever heard the music to accompany the OSX startup video, my previous hackintosh installs hadn't had audio enable already at that point. Thanks to everyone involved, I couldn't be happier!
  14. I've got all my parts on the way, should be here tomorrow. My build is the same, but I'm using a Q9400 and a different video card. That's my question: It's a PNY 9800GTX+ instead of the eVGA card that Lifehacker used. Same chipset, same memory, just a different manufacturer. How hard will it be to get it to work, or will it just work OOTB?
