  1. Taking a long time to load desktop

    Ok, I have everything re-installed and it is working perfect again. If it starts messing up again, I will post here again.
  2. Taking a long time to load desktop

    After trying some things, I decided to just reinstall since I don't have alot setup on it yet anyways. Though now I cannot get a successful install. I may have to put my old card back it for it to install (a 9500gt) Still would like to know why it was doing that though. EDIT: I was able to re-install using this GPU, just had to drop down to 4GB to get the desktop to load. I will update this thread when I have everything finished to confirm if this fixed the problem.
  3. I am wondering if it is related to my GPU. I recently upgraded to a GTX460 768MB, and it was working just fine for a while. I had used tonymacx86 nvida drivers. Now, when I start the computer, it will load the desktop (sometimes just the blue screen till I unplug the monitor and plug into another port the desktop shows) but nothing responds. I can move the mouse though. If I wait for about 5 minutes, then everything works fine untill I restart, then it happens again. What should I do?
  4. 64bit?

    I am unable to run in 64bit mode. I have tried using arch=x86_64 but it will not boot all the way (gets stuck on the blue screen right before it loads the desktop). I am running a retail install 10.6.6, and using chameleon for booting. Have 6GB of RAM, and I thought that there was a way to run individual programs in 64bit mode. I wanted to run geekbench in 64bit mode, but when I go to get info on the 64bit version, I don't see an option to run in 64bit mode anyways. So how does it work on OSX? And is there anything I can do to run in 64bit mode?
  5. ASROCK h55m-le

    Well, I have been working on this all day, and have been able to get an almost fully functional system with 10.6.5. i5 760 4GB RAM 1TB hard drive GTX460 768MB QE/CI working Network -working Sound is not currently working. But seems like everything else is fine. Getting over 6k in geekbench right now, which I think should be about right. I just like that this dirt cheap 1156 motherboard ($62) is working so well so far. EDIT: I just installed a kext through [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] to see if it fixed restart (seems like shutdown is fine, but restart goes to a black screen and I have to manually restart) - but then I am getting GSOD. Safe boot works, so I am going to remove it and see if that works. EDIT: Removing the kext made it work again. So Shut down works fine, restart only partially works, and sleep does not work at all. Not a huge deal. Really I just want sound to work now and I'll call it a day. EDIT: Got sound working with VooDooHDA 0.2.61. Installed through [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url]. Very happy.
  6. ASROCK h55m-le

    I was able to install using [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] + retail 10.6. I am only able to boot into safe mode though. If I try to boot in normal mode I get GSOD. I am going to run [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] and hope that helps. How can I find out why it is giving GSOD? EDIT: booting with -v off of the [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] CD results in the following: ACPI_SMC_PlatformPlugin: :start - waitForService(resourceMatching(AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement) timed out I have included a picture as well. So does anyone know what the problem is? I can still boot with -x and safe mode will work, but I would like to get this figured out. Thanks.
  7. ASROCK h55m-le

    I am trying to install on this board, and it is in the HCL: http://wiki.osx86project.org/wiki/index.ph...L_10.6.3#Asrock I am using [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] to load the iATKOS install disk, I select the patches used, it goes through install, but then the computer never makes it to the OSX welcome video. Can anyone offer any pointers? Thanks.
  8. Device timeout block 0x0 sectors 0

    Yes, it is set to boot to the correct volume. There is only one hard drive connected right now (the OSX volume) I just dont know why it would do this when nothing has changed.
  9. This computer has been working fine for a couple months. This error occurred once before but went away after a restart. It will not go away now. GA-X58a-UD3R Rev 2. OSX 10.6 This error occurs when booting the computer, before reaching chameleon. Disconnected all drives besides the hard drive and still get the error, so it is not a DVD drive causing problems. BIOS settings have not changed either. I am really stumped. Please help!
  10. Is sleep working correctly for you? I am thinking of doing a complete re-install. Everything is working great on my install except sleep. I used roughly the same method as you, but may re-install if your sleep is working.
  11. I don't know about kakewalk, but if you are using [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url]/[url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] method, then yes, only 4GB during installation. Once you are done with everything, you can go back to 6GB, thats what I just did. Everything is working PERFECT, just no sleep.
  12. Here is the [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] guide, it will get you up and running. http://tonymacx86.blogspot.com/2010/04/ibo...ac-os-x-on.html Then you can get the realtek mac drivers here: http://www.realtek.com/downloads/downloads...p;GetDown=false Install kext helper b7 when you are running [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url], and now use it to install the audio kext I have attached. If your graphics aren't working install nvenabler kext at this time too. See where that gets you. NVEnabler_64.kext.zip LegacyHDA.kext.zip
  13. Ok, I was able to increase my geekbench score by removing nullcpumanament from /E/E, and sleep halfway works. It will go to sleep and everything turns off. When I try to turn it back on the fans start spinning and everything, but nothing shows up on the monitor. Still not sure if I am installing the DSDT.aml correctly. I have it in the /Extra folder. Am I supposed to run some sort of permissions command from terminal?
  14. I had used nullspots DSDT, and I had tried using the systems utilities option in [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url]. The problem is it doesn't even really go to sleep. the screen turns off, but all the fans and everything is still running...though I think I hear the hard drives turn off. I will try installing the DSDT manually then repair permissions. I forget the command to run from terminal to do that though. I was able to get it to recognize 4ghz by changing the multi to 21, and increasing bclk. seems like it just doesn't want to acknowledge the 22 multi on the 930? Geekbench score is just a little over 10k. Is that right? seems like my memory speed is what holding me back some. It is DDR3 2000, but it is only clocked at about 1400 in the bios. If I change my mem multi to 10x it will be alot higher, but then uncore needs to be at 20 or 21 right? and it wont boot at those speeds.
  15. I have a GA-EX58A-UD3R with an i7 930 up and running using [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url]/retail install/10.6.4 combo update/[url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url]/realtek drivers from their site/Audio kexts installed using kext helper b7. Everything seems to be working besides sleep. I would like to install the DSDT file there in post #33, but I do not know how to install it. I tried placing it on the desktop and then using [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] and chose "User DSDT" but it didn't seem to work. Other small issues I am having is the CPU speed not working correctly. I am using 22 multi in bios, and windows see the computer at 4Ghz, but OSX is only seeing 21multi and 3.8ghz.
