  1. Has anybody else managed to get this working without it splitting into 4 screens? I really need to get it working.
  2. I also have this problem. I have set a resolution for the boot and it loads correctly. However, as soon as the os comes on the screen is split into four, with the correct resolution in each part. All of the screens are clones. Great to see QE/CI working though. I am trying to run 1600x900. What did you successfully run the drivers on?
  3. Cant connect! RALINK and Nforce Ethernet

    Have you mangaed to get a PCI wireless adapter working on snow leopard? I have a belkin wireless g F5D7000 v3000 card and it does not even activate the card, let alone recognise its existance.
  4. Has anyone recieved theirs yet?

    Got mine this morning, gonna see how I can copy it to a usb and install it on my hackintosh Any one else tried this?
  5. GeForce 200 series support

    Has anyone attempted to use the CUDA SDK with this? It does not recognise the device as CUDA-enabled. Tested on GeForce GTX260.
  6. GeForce 200 series support

    There are two small issues with using a GTX 260 though: 1. I cannot boot using graphical boot at 1080p, so it defaults to a stretched small res. It loads 1080p once the os has loaded though so it ain't a big deal. 2. When I am watching video on the second display (via DVI - HDMI), the video is great, but once I turn off the primary display, video lags every 5 seconds, so I have to keep my monitor on while I watch films on the HDTV. Has anyone else noticed these and possibly come up with a solution?
  7. GeForce 200 series support

    Thanks everyone, I have setup my Hackintosh with a GeForce GTX260 with dual screens and I have a perfectly working setup (except sound card but onboard works), all up to date and stable. For those interested, this is what I did: 1. Install iPC 10.5.6 (do not choose any nVidia drivers) 2. Update everything via Software Update 3. Reinstall voodoo kernel (for AMD users) from iPC disk 4. Install official drivers from eVGA 5. Reboot making sure only one display is connected 6. Install injector from netkas.org 7. Follow instructions from previous posts about EFI strings 8. ??? 9. Profit. All done Will probably have to start again when snow leopard is released but should be worth it. Here are my specs: CPU: AMD Athlon 64 X2 6400+ Motherboard: ASUS M2N-E SLI nForce 570 Memory: 4GB DDR2 800 Gfx: GeForce GTX 260 Sound card: XFI XtremeGamer (NOT WORKING) Network: nVidia nForce onboard Could not have done a thing without this board and the mac x86 community. Thanks guys...
  8. Works perfectly on an ASUS F8Sg Notebook. Thanks very much :censored2:
  9. I have recently bought a laptop and dual booted Windows XP and Mandriva Linux. I attempted to stick Leopard on it but had to flash a modified bios to get it installing. Anyhow, I only had a 250GB HDD and wanted to switch Linux with Leopard. Also, I already had Windows set up as the primary parition and didnt was to restructure the partitions. The format of the SATA HDD was partitioned as follows: MBR Partition Table NTFS - 40GB - Windows NTFS - 170GB - Storage Free - 40GB - Free Space Note: For any Windows users that want to install Leopard along side windows without touching Windows, you can use PartitionMagic to resize your NTFS partition without formatting it. It is best to free up at least 40GB if you want to use Leopard properly. So now the partition were ready I wanted to stick Leopard on it. I formatted the last partition to Mac OS Extended (Journaled) via Disk Utility in the Leopard installer and installed iDeneb v1.3 (10.5.5) on the partition. Now for the booting. The original bootloader from iDeneb could not boot Leopard from an extended partition using MBR. I tried sticking the Grub bootloader from Linux on it but had problems as I didnt want to give Linux any disk space and I had already partitioned the disk. I also tried installing other bootloaders such as Acronis and others but none of them worked. Also tried installing EFI v8 for MBR but it failed, it may have been a similar version that came with iDeneb. Finally, I stuck the iAtkos 10.5.4 leopard install disc in and realised there is a different bootloader on that. There is also the option to ONLY install the bootloader from the customise screen. This enabled me to boot into Leopard and fortunately it also added all of the disc paritions to the bootloader so I could boot into Windows from the EFI bootloader iAtkos installed. Hope this helps anyone else who doesn't want to mess up their current machine to install Leopard. Btw, Using Leopard as my primary OS now and loving it
  10. What network cards work?

    I am looking to buy a pci-e mini card to put into my new laptop replacing the intel one that has no drivers for leopard. I am pretty sure many people who have bought a new laptop are in the same situation. Can anyone recommend a model that works in leopard? Much appreciated.
  11. Wow, thanks OriginalMACNUT. I never knew about this site: http://www.osxcores.site50.net/page2/page2.html. And I also never knew that my laptop board was on there. Calling all ASUS F8Sg laptop owners, this modified bios works: http://www.osxcores.site50.net/page2/files...Sng%20AS304.zip. I installed it using the flash utility for windows and I could install leopard straight from the CD with no boot flags required. I have managed to dual boot with Windows XP and it works a treat! I am gonna try the latest 10.5.5 as Geforce 9 series graphics drivers are easier to get. Then I just need to sort out a couple of other driver issues. For those that are interested, this is the result I got when installing iDeneb 10.5.5: CPU: both cores working Memory: all 3gb detected Gfx: accerated with 10.5.5 and nvInject Sfx: works out the box Ethernet: works out the box Wireless: not detected, drivers are in devel, replaced with another that works native now Camera: not detected Built in keybord and trackpad: works out the box, no side scrolling though Hotkeys: brightness up/down works, audio does not, use Proxi for audio Hope this helps many of the lost souls with an Asus F8SG notebook and wanting leopard on it.
  12. Hi, I have never had a laptop till now and would love to stick Leopard on it. I can't seem to boot into the install setup, I have tried almost every distro (including old 10.4.8) and none of them allow me to boot into the setup, it freezes. I have tried multiple boot flags and bios settings. I think my bios may be the problem. Please patch the bios file please: http://dlsvr04.asus.com/pub/ASUS/nb/F8Sn/F8SNG304AS.zip. Model: Asus F8Sg CPU: Intel T5750 2.0GHz Chipset: Intel PM965 Express Chipset +ICH8M Gfx: NVIDIA GeForce 9300M G 256MB Thanks
  13. New laptop is hating all over OSX

    I have a similar model here, having a similar problem, tried JaS 10.4.8, Kalyway 10.5.2, ToH 10.5 and iAtkos 10.5.4, none of them have booted into the install. Is there a problem with this chipset, do I need to try a different kernel or something? I have been using leoapard x86 on my desktop for a long time and it works very well, I would love to have it on my laptop too !!
  14. Graphics: Geforce 8800 GTS 320mb, qe/ci supported Mobo: Asus M2N-E SLI nForce 500 CPU: AMD Athlon 64 X2 6400 Memory: 4GB DDR2 800MHz Sound: Not working Nework: Not working Extra items selected during install: - Geforce 8800 320mb drivers - forcedepth network drivers - Azalea sound drivers - mbr efi booting Overall/Summary: Everything works except audio and network, cpu name not recognised, but.. meh Notes: I have installed on mbr with the efi mbr fix, can boot in via grub. Needs 'cpu=1' to boot too. Dont think the kernel supports 64bit either. Has anyone got a nforce 5 mobo and got network drivers working? Looked all over the forum, seems to be highly in demand
  15. hi niceppl, I have a similar setup: Motherboard: M2N-E SLI CPU: AMD 6400+ Ram: 4GB Harddrives: Sata 512Gb WD + Sata 312Gb ED + IDE 80Gb WD Sound Card: CM6501 built-in, Fortissimo 3 7.1 Net Card: Belkin Wireless G PCI I have installed successfully a version of Mac OS X Leopard (not sure which though, probably the Zeph..), similar to TOH C2 AMD though. You are gona need to install EFI too to boot into your installation once finished. What I mainly wanna say is that the built-in network and built-in sound do not work and I cant find any drivers for these either. Also, the extra PCI cards do not work either, so unless you have a different configuration, you are not gona have the internet or audio.
