  1. freeze leopard

    ciao a tutti. Per caso il problema è stato risolto? Per tutto agosto sarò costretto ad usare la rete via wifi ed ho lo stesso problema con la stessa scheda (ovviamente).
  2. It worked for me too Only a strange thing: when I've tested this on my "test HD" it has worked flawless. Instead, on my "Regular HD" I've had to run EFI studio to set the Graphic card, and the postpatch give me the "can't determine UUID" error. I've to investigate on this. However the system is up and running fine.
  3. Is there a specific reason to install from another hd? thanks P.s.: I have two HD with 10.5.6, one is for testing purpose, and I was thinking to boot on that HD, install 10.5.7 apply postpatch and cross my fingers. If all will be fine I will apply the same method on my "regular" HD.
  4. Hi all, I've probably posted my problem in the wrong section. so I'm posting the link here: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=158199 Maybe moderators can move the other post and delete this.
  5. Hi all. I've a strange issue with my ipod: when i connect it to the pc, iTunes start and as soon as it begin to sync, the "DEVICE REMOVAL" message pops up. Then the ipod keeps connecting and disconetting every few seconds. In the last week I've upgraded to iTunes 8.1 (that gives repair permission issues), but I've upgraded my hardware too: I've bought 4Gb RAM (6Gb Total now), and after I've installed it my BIOS Settings was gone (maybe I've to change the motherboard's battery). However I've set BIOS parameter as they was (i think). Leopard works flawless as before, but I've this iPod issue. I've succeed to sync few times, using an USB HUB with external power supply, and with the iPod in "DISK MODE". Otherwise, other USB peripherical works fine as always. I've searched the forum, but I haven't found anyone with this problem, so I think It's more propable that's a BIOS Setting issue than iTunes issue. Any advice? Thanks in advance, and apologize for my bad english. (HW spec in signature) EDIT: The USB cable works, I've tested it with another PC. P.s. Maybe this isn't the correct section of the forum. If moderators can move this in the "hardware and drivers" section.... thanks.
  6. Thanks for the help. I've tried adding the kernel flag for uuid, but i still get "still waiting for root device" after applehdikeyboard etc... I think I'll wait for the new chameleon release. thanks anyway.
  7. Hi bladerunner. I've the com.boot.plist file in /Volumes/EFI. I've copied the one that I'm using in my current installation (on another disk), but it's only for the grafik card (EFI strings). I'm using Vanilla kernel, so I didn't think I should use the boot-uuid kernel flag, as written in the guide.
  8. I'm continuing to add kexts to the EFI partition but the problem is still there I hope someone can give me a hint.
  9. Update: I've tried adding IOUSBFamily.kext from my current Leopartd (other HD) to the EFI partition, but it doesn't solved the issue. these are the error I get: com.apple.driver.AppleHIDKeyboard has no explicit dependency com.apple.iokit.IOBluetoothFamily has immediate dependency on both com.apple.kernel and com.apple.kpi component use only one style E:[AppleUSBBluetoothHCIController][FindInterfaces] still waiting for root..... if I unplug the bluetooth dongle obviously I get only the "keyboard thing"
  10. thanks cVaD, I've already solved with mkextunpack. However now I get a "waiting for root..." during the boot without the 132CD. It seems that it freezes as soon as it find an USB device: I've a bluetooth dongle and during the boot with -v I can see it says something about "usbbluetoothsomething" then "still waiting for root..." I've unplugged the bluetooth dongle but now the boot stops when it find the Apple Keyboard Maybe I've missed some kext??? There aren't usb related kext in the boot 132 cd image (see my previous post) advice? thanks in advance
  11. Hi all, I'm using this iso image and following munky's guide to install retail Leoopard. during the procedure we should copy kext files from the iso(CD) to the EFI partition: how can I extract kext files from the mkext file in this iso? thanks in advance UPDATE: I've figured it out: Mkextunpack
  12. Try replacing the IONetworkingFamily.kext with the one you had before.
  13. UPDATE: I've tried to burn the image anyway. I boot with the CD after the prompt I swap the Leopard DVD, but I'm getting "still waiting for root device" I've made another boot 132 image adding more kext, AppleACPIPlatform, IOAHCIFamily and JmicronATA... same result. any advice?
