  1. Any of these available for sale?
  2. Lion GM released today

    Good stuff!
  3. Snow Leopard on external drive

    You can install OS X on an external USB drive, my Lion testing OS is on one, not sure about firewire because i havent tested that. Im unsure on wether you may run into problems with the drive been IDE though, i would definately recommend using SATA.
  4. This method also works on the GA-P35-DS3 ver 2.1 with F14 bios. My system specs are in signature. All working correctly including sleep.
  5. Looking good, should simplify the process for many users.
  6. Thanks for the info. I've checked this out, its not a bad little program to be honest. I've applied all the fixes, tried generating a new dsdt then apply the fixes. When i do this sleep results in a reboot and shutdown still doesnt work. Thanks for this also. I've also checked the console logs and i get software sleep success??? Still no sleep. One thing i think it could be is a PCI add-in card which is firewire and usb. I think this may be the problem. I'll check tomorrow by removing the card and see what happens. (Cant be arsed now as i'm off to bed)
  7. Nobody can help me. Looks like i'll have to find a solution for myself.
  8. I've been looking into this for a few weeks now and its starting to be a little bit of an obsession! I could really do with the shutdown working more than the sleep because when i have to shutdown, i have to push the power button in to do so. This sometimes results in my gigabyte bios resetting to default settings (Not a CMOS Reset). Any ideas, anyone please??
  9. Hi, I've tried using the DSDT you've linked to and it's worse than the one i've got. For the following reasons; - Internal SATA HDD's connected to the Intel SATA ports come up as external (With My DSDT shows internal) - Internal SATA Chipset listed as Unknown AHCI Chipset (With My DSDT shows Intel ESB2 AHCI) - Audio not recognised (With My DSDT shows Device ID:0x1458A002, Audio ID:885, and all available inputs/output devices) - Sleep still not working, instant boot up after sleep cycle - Shutdown still not working, machine restarts To be honest my DSDT is loads better than that one. I'll include mine, ready to go in a zip file if anyone wants to try it. The kexts i'm using in my /extra are; - fakesmc.kext - JMicronATA.kext - LegacyHDA.kext - NullCPUPowerManagement.kext - NVEnabler 64.kext - SleepEnabler.kext I'll also zip these files in a separate download if again anybody should want to try them. Oh and i also figured that with my system been identified as MacPro3,1 rather than iMac11,1 its much more stable. Might be why i've had no kernel panics?? who knows. Anyway still having problems with Sleep and Shutdown. The Motherboard is Gigabyte GA-P35-DS3 ver 2.1 with F14 BIOS. I can posted the BIOS file if it is any help?? Thanks
  10. Quick update; I've sorted the random kernel panics out I think which is probably due to an unstable overclock. I've run Rember for a period of a few hours, overnight and not crashed! I'm still having problems with sleep, and also with shutting down. - When i sleep the computer wakes instantly (With or without sleepenabler.kext). - When i shutdown the computer it reboots (With or without either EvoReboot.kext/OpenHaltRestart.kext) The computer restarts correctly without kexts. So this leads me to believe that there is a DSDT error somewhere. I've checked all the BIOS settings (Suspend type S3), there all correct (Worked flawlessly on Leopard too!) My CMOS doesnt get reset or anything silly like that so i'm a little stumped. Any Ideas?
  11. Thanks i'll look into it and post back my findings. Any help regarding sleep from anyone. My DSDT is included in the zip file, i've done everything to the best of my knowledge so if anyone knows any fixes or code that is missing then feel free to help. Thanks
  12. Hi, I havent posted on here for a while because i've not had internet access and only just started having problems. I have a Gigabyte GA-P35-DS3 ver 2.1 with F14 Bios. I have everything sorted, regarding the; Sound (889a) / DSDT Network (Realtek 81xx) / DSDT & Kext (for bonjour) Graphics Card (nVidia 9500 GT 1GB) / Kext Sata Ports (Intel ICH-9) / DSDT (recognised as ESB2) The only problem i have now is occasionally i get a kernel panic and have to hard reboot. There seems to be no pattern to when it occurs and no reference to anything related in the log files. Also i have no sleep, the computer goes to sleep and does this successfully as i have read in the log files but then instantaneously boots back up. This is another thing which is rather annoying. The kexts i have are; IN /E/E -fakesmc.kext -JMicronATA.kext -LegacyHDA.kext -NullCPUPowerManagement.kext -NVEnabler 64.kext -SleepEnabler.kext IN /S/L/E -Realtek1000SL.kext I'm running 10.6.3, in 64-bit kernel mode and all extensions are 64bit compatible. If anyone could help it would be greatly appreciated. I've enclosed all the files i use incase anyone else has the same board and needs anything. Cheers
  13. Newsgroup reader for OSX?

    Unison by panic. Its probably the best NZB downloader. Also if you go to newzleech.com and search it gives you the chance to download NZB and then fire them straight up in unison and it will download (providing you have a usenet accout like giganews)
  14. Still getting 1024*768 with 8400GS

    Remove the injectotrs and use efi strings instead it should work for you, it does for me i have all resolutions and QE/CI. Use PCWIZ UI installer http://######.com/index.php?option=...9&Itemid=48 and all the options you require and choose the right graphics card you have. You may have to uninstall the injectors im not sure someone else may have to confirm.
