    Mac OS X on Aspire 5738ZG

    I had the same problem but I managed to install 10.6.4. I used 10.6.3 retail dvd (instead of the 10.6) and I used the latest version of myhack v1.1 (comes with the new sleep enabler). But still I had KP so I had to figure out what was that was causing the KP. I guess it was something related with the graphics board because right before the KP a message showed in verbose, something like "SLOT 1" etc. After searching the net I found it was related with the graphics board. So I just went to my previous 10.6.2 installation and moved all kexts from ATI "ATI...kext" to the new 10.6.4 installation (after I logged in in safe boot with -x) and replaced the new ones with the old ones. So now no more KPs. You may experience issues with wireless (I got a private IP and couldn't connect), I used the "Network Setup Assistant" and wireless started working. Hope this helps.

    Ha! Just one quick note: I was somewhat pissed with the fact that I could not change the screen brightness. It was always at 100% which makes my battery last less time. I just found out that you just have to press the "Fn" button on the laptop and then press up or down for the sound, and left or right for the dim/brightness level!

    Check out my mini-guide on 5738zg: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php...p;#entry1425365
  4. I've got an Acer 5738ZG too with the same problem. Had to downgrade back to 10.6.2.

    So does anyone know if 10.6.3 update provides any support for this graphics card?

    10.6.2 em Acer Aspire 5738zg

    Tentei esse DSDT no mediafire (não funcionou) e experimentei alterar o meu DSDT como explica esse link (também não funcionou). Acabei de desinstalar o meu DSDT e o smbios.plist e continua tudo na mesma, começo a duvidar se ter um DSDT instalado é relevante. Ainda não percebi bem como é que o DSDT pode ajudar a resolver o que me falta: Só não tenho placa Ethernet a funcionar, não tenho QE/CI, bluetooth, sleep, e acho que também não tenho speedsetp porque com o OS X a minha bateria dura apenas uns 50 minutos... Acho que vou fazer uma pausa e dedicar-me a outras coisas mais importantes. Apesar de tudo o meu OSX86 até que não está muito mau. Posso navegar na internet, ver filmes, ouvir musica e escrever. Obrigado pela ajuda.

    Instalei esse DSDT e também não funciona. Tentei esta explicação mas sem sucesso. Talvez eu esteja a fazer algo de errado.

    Olá, Sim experimentei esse kext, Acer5920HDA.kext, mas não deu resultado. Removi também esses kexts, mas o problema do sleep mantém-se. Obrigado.

    Boa noite, Instalei a ultima versão de voodoohda e já tenho audio e microfone (embora com algum ruido o mic). Relativamente ao sleep, o que acontece é que o sistema fica paralizado, o ecrân fica ligado e a ventoinha a funcionar. Não percebo muito de DSDT, nem de programação. No entanto deixo aqui o meu DSDT gerado pela aplicação DSDTSE e informação detalhada LSPCI sobre o portátil. Se me puder dar alguma informaçao sobre como aperfeiçoar o meu OSX86 agradecia imenso. Obrigado, dsdt.txt LSPCI.txt
  10. O QUE USEI: Usei um Mac real, instalador myHack, um disco rígido externo e um DVD com OS X 10.6. PROCEDIMENTO: - Com o meu Mac verdadeiro, criei um DMG a partir do DVD, e depois usei a função "restore" para copiar o DMG para o disco externo. Depois instalei o myHack na partição. - Liguei o disco rígido ao portátil, escolhi o disco rígido como dispositivo de arranque. No final da instalação do OS X ocorreu um erro e não conseguia arrancar a partir do sistema operativo instalado no laptop. Então, eu criei uma outra partição no disco rígido externo e usando o meu mac real, localizei o ficheiro OSInstall.mpkg localizado na partição de instalação, e instalei o OS X na 2ª nova partição. Depois instalei o myHack sobre esta nova partição após a instalação do Mac OS X. - Arranquei a partir desta instalação OSX86 na 2ª partição no disco rígido com sucesso. - Utilizando o OS X, com o portátil, instalado na 2ª partição, localizei o ficheiro OSInstall.mpkg na 1ª partição e instalei o OS X no disco rígido do portátil, e depois instalei o myHack na nova instalação OS X no disco do portátil. - Arranquei o OS X instalado no disco do portátil com sucesso. - Eu actualizei para 10.6.2, e usei o pfix no terminal, um programa que é instalado no sistema operativo com o myHack, corrige permissões e reconstrói o cache de inicialização e Extensions.mkext (eu uso pfix sempre que aparece qualquer problema como kexts que não carregam etc, e funciona quase sempre, não sei porquê). - Restart ... e funciona. PS: no instalador myHack escolhi "Graphics disabled" e applePS2Controller não escolhi porque no link abaixo existe um kext AppleACPIPS2Nub.kext que trabalha em combinação com VoodooPS2Controller.kext. FUNCIONA: - Airport trabalha. - ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4570, apenas resolução máxima com este kext. - Ok Trackpad com voodoo PS2 a partir deste link. Double finger scrolling ok! - Som ok com voodoo HDA. Mas não funciona o microfone interno. - Ok bateria com voodoo battery. - Eu também uso VoodooPowerMini.kext mas não tenho certeza para que serve. - Ok gravação de discos. - Webcam ok. - Para USB, tive de apagar AppleHPNet.kext (o que ele faz?) NÃO FUNCIONA: - Ethernet. - Bluetooth. - Não é possível usar a função Sleep. - Por vezes depois de reiniciar o portátil fica congelado no arranque. Preciso de reiniciar com a opção -v e reiniciar de novo com -v, e já funciona. - Eu gosto de usar o VMware, existem alguns aplicativos úteis do Windows que eu uso. Mas quando eu inicio o OS virtual, surge um Kernel Panic! (Porquê?) - Microfone. - Layout do teclado. Porque eu uso o layout do teclado Português, parece haver uma diferença entre o Teclado Português usado pelo Windows, e o Telclado Português usado por Mac, e algumas teclas estão trocadas. Vocês sabem de qualquer aplicativo que permite criar ou editar o layout de teclado Mac OS X? Aqui está a minha lista de kexts no / Extras / Extensions: AppleACPIPS2Nub.kext EvOreboot.kext <--- myHack FakeSMC.kext <--- myHack IONetworkingFamily.kext <--- myHack LegacyAppleRTC.kext <--- myHack NullCPUPowerManagement.kext <--- myHack RadeonHD.kext SleepEnabler.kext <--- myHack (doesn't work for me) VoodooBattery.kext <--- don't remember, from voodooprojects.org maybe.

Sabem se existe alguma forma de conseguir QE/CI com ATI Mobility 4570? Se detectarem algum erro neste post, nos procedimentos etc digam, estou disposto a aprender. Obrigado,
  11. Hello, So I bought a laptop and I thought "Why not erase Win7, and try install the best OS out there in it and see what happens?" I spent a couple of weeks checking out the sites, downloading stuff and trying things out, and this is what I've done so far: My laptop specs: Pentium Dual-Core 2.1 GHz 4 GB (DDR3 SDRAM) 15 in. TFT Active Matrix LCD 500 GB 5,400 RPM Serial ATA Dual Layer DVD±RW/DVD-RAM ATI MOBILITY RADEON HD 4570 512 MB 4 x USB 2.0, HDMI Atheros Integrated Wireless LAN STUFF: I used a real Mac, myHack installer, an external hard drive, and a Retail OSX 10.6 DVD Disc. ME HACKING: - Using my real mac I restored my OS X Retail Disc to a partition on my external hard drive (using disk utility I created a dmg image, then restored it to the partition) and then I installed myHack installer on it. - I tried to install os x in my laptop this way. I connected the hard drive to the laptop, choose the hard drive has the boot device, booted successfully, but at the end of the installation an error occurred and I could not boot from the OS installed on the laptop. So I created another partition on the external hard drive and using my real mac, I located OSinstall.mpkg on the installation partition, and installed OS X on the new one. Afterwards I installed myHack installer on this new partition after the os x installation. - I then tried to boot from this new osx86 installation on this 2nd partition on the hard drive and I succeeded. - Then I installed OS X on the laptop disc, using the same method as before: locating OSinstall.mpkg etc., afterwards I installed myHack installer. - I then booted successfully with the laptop disc installation. - I updated to 10.6.2, and I used the "pfix" in the terminal, a little terminal command that is installed on the OS with the myHack, it fixes permissions and rebuilds the boot cache and Extensions.mkexts (I use "pfix" whenever there seems to be any problem like kexts not loading etc, and it works almost every time, not sure why). - Boot... OK. PS: in myHack installer I choose graphics disabled, and later I unchecked applePS2Controller, cause in the link below there is a AppleACPIPS2Nub.kext kext that works in combination with VoodooPS2Controller.kext. STUFF THAT WORKS: - Airport works out of the box with no patches or anything. (Sweet! ) - ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4570, I can have native res using dong's kext and this method, but with no QE/CI. - Trackpad ok with voodoo ps2 from this link. Double finger scrolling ok! - Sound ok with voodoo HDA. But mic not working. - Battery ok with voodoo battery. - I also use VoodooPowerMini.kext but not sure what it does. - Disc burning ok. - Webcam ok right out of the box. - For USB, I had to trash AppleHPNet.kext (what does it do?) NOT WORKING - Ethernet, couldn't find a way to make it work. Using a app called "Hardware Info" it shows my Ethernet card as: Broadcom NetXtreme BCM5764M Gigabit Ethernet PCIe. I used the AppleBCM5751Ethernet.kext with no success. - No bluetooth. - Can't make the OS go to sleep mode, even if I close the lid. It freezes. - Sometimes when I restart, or start the laptop, the boot freezes (rarely some KPs , and I have to restart again using verbose, and again and it works.Why?) - I like using VMware, there are some useful windows apps I use. But when I start the Virtual OS, Kernel Panic! (Why?) - No mic. - Keyboard layout. Because I use the Portuguese Keyboard Layout, there seems to be a difference between Portuguese Standard Layout, and the Portuguese Mac Layout, and some keys are swapped. You guys know of any app that allows to create or edit the OS X keyboard layout? Here's my list of kexts in the /Extras/Extensions: AppleACPIPS2Nub.kext EvOreboot.kext <--- myHack FakeSMC.kext <--- myHack IONetworkingFamily.kext <--- myHack LegacyAppleRTC.kext <--- myHack NullCPUPowerManagement.kext <--- myHack RadeonHD.kext SleepEnabler.kext <--- myHack (doesn't work for me) VoodooBattery.kext <--- don't remember, from voodooprojects.org maybe.

I'm using DSDT.aml but I'm not sure if it works or if it improves anything at all. I used DSDT Patcher GUI. Do you guys know of any way to improve my hack (mic; QE/CI; Ethernet; etc) ? Also, if you find any error here, regarding language (english not my native language) osx86 jargon, or methods in this little mini-guide, please correct me, I'm willing to learn. Thank you.

    IATKOS on TOSHIBA SATELLITE issues

    Tens que usar a primeira versão do IATKOS (v1.0) e não a segunda (v1.0 ir2). Tens que escolher o DVD para o boot na BIOS. Desactiva o multicore support (só podes ter 1 cpu a funcionar). Depois vai aparecer uma contagem decrescente carrega no enter, e escreve: -v. Boa sorte
  14. Hi guys, I've successfully installed IATKOS on my laptop. However, there are some issues that I'd like to discuss, so I can solve them. ISSUES: - Realtek wifi card is not recognized as Airport card. - To successfully boot from HD with IATKOS installed, I must disable multi-core support in the BIOS. I'm, therefore, using only 1 CPU, when I should be using the 2. - The Operative System takes too long to boot, about 3 minutes or so. - I tried to install Windows, but now I can't seem to do it. Windows does not recognize the Hard Drive. So now I can only have Mac OS X. This happens even if I make a partition formated to Windows installation (NTFS; FAT32). - I also tried bootcamp, but when I launch this application, it tells me firmware does not allow this operation, or something like that (something to do with the EFI emulation?) Thank you for your help.
