    Lion GM Facetime error

    I'm actually thinking FaceTime may check your App Store purchases, and If it doesn't see Lion as a purchase, it disallows FaceTime? I hope not, but it would make sense. But based on other reading, it looks for now to just be switched off until Lion is released.

    [Solved] GA-EP35-DS3L Won't Boot Lion Installer

    Stupid is as stupid does! That was the issue, silly me. However, I could only get it to boot past a white screen at GUI initialization by using this Extra installer: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=258606 Thanks!
  3. Hello all, I have a Gigabyte GA-EP35-DS3L motherboard with a Q6600 Quad working fantastic in 10.6.8, everything recognized in System Profiler. However the Lion Installer restored to USB disk with Chameleon RC5 will not boot with the instant kernel panic of: "Unable to find driver for this platform: \"ACPI\".\n"@/SourceCache/*... " I have tried different versions of Chameleon RC5 and currently have RC5 r1095. The bootloader works great if I choose my current Snow Leopard partition. However, I get this message when choosing Lion's Installer Disk. I have also tried changing the PStates & CStates argument, as well as HPET to 32-bit in the BIOS. I have my good DSDT from Snow Leopard in the /Extra folder on the USB disk. I have been following the standard USB Thumb Drive installation guide. Any ideas? Thanks!

    Ralink RT3070L 64bit?

    USB for WiFi sucks - I recommend Airport Expresses as external NIC cards for Hackintosh users. Simply setup the Airport Express to connect to an existing network, and then run an Ethernet Cable from it to your desktop. It will become an instant external NIC in bridge mode! With 5 Ghz!

    G5 case hackintosh build list

    This is really hard - I wouldn't recommend it. The case is totally proprietary and you would have to do cutting / welding / jerry rigging to get it to work. Better off buying a look-a-like case. They've been done before but by shop people with spare time on their hands.

    released Update to 10.6.4

    Working perfect on my Gigabyte GA-EP35-DS3L motherboard. I'm not using sleepenabler. Is AppleGraphicsPowerManagement.kext new?

    10.6.3 Released !

    Updated my pretty standard DSDT build on a Gigabyte GA-EP35-DS3L board / MSI NVIDIA 8800GT graphics with no problem. Just removed SleepEnabler.kext before install. I always use the Combo updates for best results, FYI.

    802.11n PCI-Express Wireless Solutions for OSx86 / Hack Pro

    Sounds right, have you tried it? I'm looking for a 5 ghz solution. The Apple cards are $25.00 on eBay these days.
  9. For anyone who does this, I'd really recommend taking the opportunity to play the game TaskMaker. It's seriously one of the best games ever. Epic. It should be pretty easy to find somewhere to download.
  10. The PCI Edimax nMax card is officially supported under Mac, and I have been using it since Tiger without a hitch: http://bit.ly/xB5tz ($50) Only 32-bit right now with a Ralink 2860 chipset, but Ralink is hopefully working on 64-bit drivers as they have updated other chipsets with support. You can keep your eye out for the new drivers here: http://bit.ly/2fOnt5

    AirLink - AWLH6070 Wireless N PCI Adapter - RT2860

    This card is working fine for me in 32-bit Snow Leopard on my Gigabyte GA-EP35-DS3L. I am worried about 64-bit support as I don't think there are any real Macs that have PCI and can run Snow Leopard. I think the last Macs to have regular PCI were PowerPC Macs so I'm worried that the drivers will never be updated for the PCI version of this card.
  12. Hmm well I took the GraphicsEnabler line out (yes, I was using it), and then the System Profiler shows all the same information except no ROM Revision information - the line does not show. This then happens regardless if the VideoROM line is also taken out along with the GraphicsEnabler line. So, basically I see no evidence yet that this feature works.
  13. OK well I disabled the VideoROM pass by reverting the changes and my System Profiler is still reporting the same exact Graphics Card & ROM Revision "xx.xx.xx" - so I guess it's not working. I also changed the string to point to the ROM with "/Volumes/PreBoot/Extra" with no results.

    Speakers Popping

    I have this motherboard with no problems when using the standard line-out jack. Try using my DSDT here: http://bit.ly/YWLo5
  15. Here is my IORegistryExplorer Developer Tool file - the card is located in IODeviceTree under pci-bridge@1. This method wouldn't kill your card - flashing it could do that. If the passed ROM didn't work, simply reverting the changes would fix the issue. Anyone interested in downloading the Mac Pro's NVIDIA 8800GT 512 ROM can get it here. Also, is my syntax correct in the com.boot.plist file?
