  1. Dell XPS 410 Resource Extravaganza

    Hi everyone, I need your help, one again ... This Sigmatel 9227 is driving me crazy ! I have a working EFI now with Leo installed on a secondary disk (at least I could see some changes with GFX strings for my ATI 2600 XT even if it doesn't work for now totally). But I can't make SFX work... and I still can't make ALCinject work too (except when booting with no ALC/HDA extension and copy these into S/L/E and then apply HDAPatcher 1.2 with a XPS 420 codec file found here). I'm now Kalyway 10.5.1 + 10.5.2 combo and graphics update and netkas latest kernel... Thanks for your answers

    OK I've found... In fact that was my temporary two Leo installs that blocks me to boot on the second one (tboot stop after the first OSX). Now that I've finished with Kalyway I removed my previous Iaktos and everything works fine (at least for dual boot) with Vista bootloader and the help of tboot.

    Mmmh... That's what I've done first but only one SATA disk is seen.Can you point me to a working bootloader that will boot to another disk/partition ?

    Does anyone know how to enable boot on a second SATA disk on a XPS 410/420 in dell bios options ?

    Ooops ! My upload did not work ! Here it is http://rapidshare.com/files/95154956/HDAPa...upItem.zip.html Well, everything you need is in the archive. You must unzip in /Library/StartupItems and repair permissions. After reboot, the ALCinject/AppleHDA that work for me are copied to /System/Library/Extensions. You'll have to apply manually Taruga HDAPatcher 1.20 with your codec after each boot : quite boring ! When shutdown is in progress the two ALCinject/AppleHDA are deleted from Extensions. I've tried to automatically apply HDAPatcher in startupitem but it does not work silentely and ask to enter authentication and close the main window. The AHCI is enabled in the "drive options" of the XPS 420 bios... But your 9200 may not have this option ? I don't know. I wait for my new 320G drive to be shipped... Then I'll do a clean install of a Kalyway 10.5.1 + ComboUpdate 10.5.2. I'll have space enough for TM to be usefull and hope my EFI strings will work to get rid of these injectors.

    Did I mentioned my config is one physical disk only and 4 partitions (2 for Vista, Leo and Time Machine on the lastest). Did you succeeded with the <bless> command during dual boot setup ? For the sound stuff, I've never had it working after reboot, only during a working session. The only way I've make it work for now is the one mentioned in this forum by "unpi" : 1. Boot with no injector / AppleHDA extensions (have to delete them before reboot/shutdown) 2. Copy attached injector/AppleHDA in S/L/E 3. Apply HDAPatcher 1.2 with "xps420" codec found elsewhere 4. Enjoy Leopard with sound ! Quite horrible but it allways works ! I've made a startupitem to help me not to forget to copy / delete initial 2 ALCinject/AppleHDA... If anyone is interested, I'll upload it. If the <bless> command on an hybrid (Vista/Leo) disk is my problem, I'll install Leo on a separated disk... PS. for the boot, you should try to enable AHCI in bios and use the kext given by frantisheq (see earlier in this topic).

    I've tested it with still no success. I tried to make a GFX string for my ATI Radeon HD 2600 XT and get rid of Natit but it did not work anymore : I got a scramble screen and have to reboot with safe mode. Sorry for my next stupid question... I remember that my "bless" command did not work when I installed dual boot (dd, startupfiletoo and bless). In fact, I have 4 partitions on my 320G disk and my Vista one is the active, I use Vista boot loader to start Leo. Does it matters with my actual sound (ACLinject and EFI) problem ?
  8. Dell XPS 410 Resource Extravaganza

    Thanks for your advice... I've tested all 3 kext but none of them worked for me.I'll try to use GFX string for my ATI to be sure I'm OK with EFI strings... May be I missed something ?The only way to have sound is unpi method very usefull... If I can't make it work with SFX string, I'll will try with a self made startup item (if possible) I've noticed that you did not put any revision, subsystem or vendors in your plist... When following the previously mentioned tutorial I've put them all... is it incorrect ?

    Dell XPS 420 Quad Q6600 Video: ATI HD 2600 XT Audio : Onboard Sigmatel 9227 Network : Onboard Intel 82566 DC Is there any problem reported with iaktos vs EFI strings ?
  10. Dell XPS 410 Resource Extravaganza

    I've forgot to mention that there is nothing in Sound Preferences panel... It seems that my SFX string are not applied.
  11. Dell XPS 410 Resource Extravaganza

    Many thanks for your answer... But I still need help... I should have missed something. I've created an hex file base on the attached plist (with gfxutil) and put the result in a key named "device-properties" in com.apple.Boot.plist, reboot, F8, -f -v but still can't hear any sound... Have you any idea of what's going wrong ? I have an iAtkos v1.0 EFI MBR updated to 10.5.2 using Kalyway, Graphics update and finallly Kalyway Vanilla kernel.
  12. Dell XPS 410 Resource Extravaganza

    I've installed iAktos 10,5,1 DVD... with 10,5,2 update and it works fine on my XPS 420 Quad except for NIC and HD sound. Sometimes, immediately after Taruga patch, sound work but after reboot it allways fails. I can't see any log, permissions/owners are OK, kext cache is rebuild too... Has anyone any idea ? For NIC I've installed my old Belkin FDS 7000 v3 (Ralink drivers) and use it waiting for a driver for my onboard Intel 82566...
