    GTX 295 + 9500 GT

    I've got a GTX 295 and had it working for a long time now, using the proper gfx strings and the NVGTX295.Fix.kext. I've since bought a 9500GT to add a third monitor to my setup, but I can't get the 9500GT to work. Is there some conflict between the graphics enabler and the NVGTX295.fix.kext (it uses the vanilla NVDANV50Hal kext)? If I add the 'correct' gfxstring for the 9500GT, i get a kernel panic on boot.
  2. I bought the 9650SE-4LPML as a result of reading this thread, and the card works great. I slipped the kext in and everything works, is bootable, etc etc. Now, how do I get the raid units to show up as internal drives? I've attempted to modify the Info.plist files inside the kext after reading a similar thread for a HP raid array (http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=183101) but I was unable to get it to work. Any ideas?
  3. Thanks. What installs paragon? I haven't installed any NTFS tools myself.
  4. ricola, Here's a typical successful boot kernel log. The unsuccessful boots don't write to the kernel log, so I can't paste them...

  5. I don't have a very weird partitioning scheme... Drive A - GUID - Windows 7 (NTFS) / HFS+ partition (for whatever) Drive B - GUID - Snow (HFS+) / Scratch partition (NTFS) Drive C/D - GUID (Software RAID) BIOS is configured to boot Drive B first; it has RC3 installed. Using the DSDT you provided earlier.
  6. After further use... this didn't fix the issue. It takes me anywhere from 3 to 15 reboots until OSX actually boots. Any ideas?

    problems with Silverlight..

    Once silverlight is installed, what is the best method (for snow leopard) to get past the 8152 DRM error message?
  8. Alright! It tooks me about 20 tries to get it to boot (aparently booting into windows and then rebooting to osx speeds things up) I had to add a step before kextcache: chown / root Thanks ricola!
  9. Ok running into a new problem! Snow Leopard refuses to boot sometimes. I have tried using Chameleon RC1, RC2 and the other boot installer you just recently added to the how-to. When SL refuses to boot, I have to cycle power to get it to successfully boot again. Hitting the reset button causes the same result to happen on next reboot. I've attached a picture of where it stops at: It doensn't stop exactly there every time. Sometimes it stops a few lines before, sometimes it stops at "Waiting for device". This only affects SL. I am able to boot Windows every time without any issue. I don't have a Leopard install to test atm.
  10. Ok I have gone through this process several times now, and there is one thing that really confuses me. I can ONLY get the drive to boot SL if: 1) I install Chameleon from 10.5 2) I cache kexts (using the tool) from 10.6 This is keeping me from installing on my main system because I don't have two systems available at the same time. I believe it is because Chameleon is forcing me to boot in 64bit mode, and 10.5 won't compile 64bit cache. I am unable to get Chameleon to boot in 32bit mode; I have tried: "-v arch=x86_32" and "-v -x32" with no luck. Any ideas? I would gladly install everything from an existing SL install, but I cannot get Chameleon to complete successfully. Me too! I've gotten this install to sleep but it wouldn't wake up. The USB devices got power when I attempted to wake though...
  11. I've got SL working with this guide. Changed out the LegacyHDA for one with digital output. Digital out works fine, except I cannot get DTS or AC3 to transmit 4.1, 5.1, etc. Anyone had any luck with this?
  12. @vividview using that LegacyHDA kext enabled digital, it works! Haven't tested anything with DTS or AC3 yet. @ricola thanks for the guide! your copy of the DSDT had my audio enabled (mine worked, but audio was completely missing) If anyone cares, I am running bios v14. I think you are going to have to find a guide on booting from a software raid with chameleon and mesh it with this guide like this one: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=160467
  13. It boots! I could not perform the kextcache step from my MacBook running Snow Leopard... It rejected all the invalid kexts as vividview was experiencing earlier. I used the kext utility instead. Sound does not appear to be working... I noticed errors at boot time about AppleHDA. I also use digital out for my sound, so I'll have to play with it some...
  14. OK... interesting results. Removing all NTFS partitions/drives + Snow on JMicron - FAIL Removing all NTFS partitions/drives + Snow on internal Intel - FAIL Can't seem to get past this AppleAHCIPort failure. Next step I will try is to start over from scratch.
  15. I've got the worst possible setup probably... I have 4 internal drives and 1 external drive. The internal drives are: 2 in Apple software raid - media storage, was playing with apple raid when i set this up. 1 time machine backup 1 split between MAIN osx OS and Windows 7 external drive - split between my test OS (SL at the moment) and a NTFS backup scratch partiton. The external is esata so I do use jmicron. this is also the drive i am booting from... if jmicron isn't loading correctly, can I even properly boot an OS from a drive connected to the jmicron controller? i'm about to open up the PC and disconnect all the internal drives as well as remove my ntfs scratch partition. i'll boot then and see if it's working.
