  1. sorry for my late reply, try installing an older usbfamily.kext (10.4.8 I think). and within contents of that kext you will find a variety of other kexts. replace the AppleUSBEHCI.kext with the PCUSBEHCI.kext that you find in this forum when searching for it. eternet works by installing a forcedeth.kext you will find a stable forcedeth.kext in the forum that works with nforce4 lan. alternatively get the new 10.5.2 by zephyroth the forcedeth.kext is included and ethernet will work like out of the box. peace out fLuXuS

    "operating system not found"?

    ok i got everything to work. i did have to copy the ApplePS2Controller.kext from the cd into my leopard extensions folder. and removed the GeForce.kext and NVDAResman.kext from it to prevent Kp during boot. thx
  3. does anyone have a clou what this could be related to? it is really frustrating and it keeps crashing at the same point. some components do install, but one component seems to bugger the system. i havent investigated properly which one that is yet, but maybe someone has the same problem? my specs are in the pers. sign. hope that helps. cant give you any other information for now. i will try to see if the debug command says something useful in the dump, if it generates one at all. till then, peace out... fLuXuS
  4. for me this error usually goes away after updating the mbr or more specifically by reinstalling the efi (in my case v8). i assume you use efi? if yes download the efi pack and follow the instructions on how to install it. you can find it on the forum. pace out
  5. nope i am running leo on amd and i have dsmos also. but strangely i have a dont_steal_Mac_Os.kext also.

    Driver for nForce4 LAN

    guess what, i have just deleted the old forcedeth-nockd.kext and the skge.kext, replaced it with the new forcedeth.kext instead et voila everything works 100%!! all cores and network connection rocks! thanks a lot! pace out...

    Driver for nForce4 LAN

    sorry, but i have a couple of more questions pushing through the back of my forehead,.... ok, basically in all forcedeth.kexts my device id is listed as the first one 0x005710DE, which is supposed to be the nforce 4 lan. that is what windows detects as well and it runs correctly and fast and smoothly in windows. now my questions: 0. why would any of the forcedeth.kexts not be loadable, if my dev ids are listed in all 4 *.plist´s? 1. why is it that the lan is detected as a nforce 4 lan, eventhough it says in my manual that it is a marvell SSE1111CAA chip? is that because nforce 4 lan uses these marvel chips but they are published under nvideas ven id with nforce 4 lans dev id? 2. also in my manual it says i have the nforce professional chipset 2200 and 2050 of which each one controlls one lan. now, why does it say nforce 4 lan and not nforce professional lan (if that exists at all)? 3. is the reason for my lan not working properly under mac os x -eventhough the device ids seem to be supported- because of the same reason you mentioned about forcedeth being an unstable old driver? 4.why would they make a driver with the device ids for a device listed and release that "beta", eventhough it is completely shiiite anyways? 5. when running skge.kext on its own it says i am not connected to the internet. since you said forcedeth is an unstable driver i would like to get rid of it and if possible use skge.kext on its own. however, skge.kext doesnt even load at bootup, i have to manually start it using the terminal. do i have to use skge in combination, or should i be able to use skge.kext the same way as using forcedeth.kext. ###if yes, have you got a better command line to load it, make it first choice and start it during boot? 6. are there any other nforce 4 kexts worth trying that you could recommend? you said there are a few more?ohh and yes, i meant it freezes like a kernel panic. i always have to nanually reboot. thx for the boot command.btw.: 7. does this command only work the first time after manually rebooting my system after network causes kp, or will the error stuff still be there like, now? its not a log you said, so i presume its not there anymore and i have to wait till next kp? i can´t think of any more questions right now, eventhough i look like but i just feel i have just changed to mac os x like a week ago and i am reading every day in this forum. i am coping with terminal and try lot of things, but i realise i have to catch up on a lot of things if i want to have a PERFECT HACKMAC thx for reading...and... pace out, fLuXuS yes, i have two cpus with two cores each (like a PowerMac Quad-core) and for internet to work i have to use cpus=1 sometimes, well actually i always use it so that i dont get any kps when surfing the web, eventhough i had only two kps when loading the skge.kext as well. but since i never know what i am doing besides surfing the web i found it safer to use the kf cpus=1 to make sure i dont lose something pressureous (is that spelled right?). well for me its either using only a quarter of my machine and having internet, or using all my cores and not being able to use internet. i think it could be worse - like having both problems at the same time , but it would be better having full power and a working network at the same time

    Driver for nForce4 LAN

    cant be forcedeth-d.kext its forcedth-nockd.kext i am using . i saw that debugging for this kext is set to true compared to the original forcedeth-d.kext coming from the install disk where it is set to false. i dont think the forcedeth.kext seemed to be loadable. i remember two of the kexts didnt load and i think forcedeth is one of them. but i have got a log generated before it crashes. it is attached to this post. maybe you know what it means?sytemlog_for_forcedeth_nockd.rtfpace out the log doesnt actually show the real last line because this is seconds before it freezes and when it freezes it doesnt show anything anymore but stays as it is. so i cant tell you if there is an actual error line showing up in the end. i am gonna have a look in the error logs, maybe something has been saved to it. but i think these errors and freezes stay generally unreported and noone knows the error unless knowing what happened before to know what could be the cause?
  9. thanks! hope you get it running too. my lan is finally working too, but when i hooked up my macbook to the hackmac it didnt work, so i guess my firewire is dead just as my usb ports where dead before reinstalling an older kext. it is listed under system profiler though, but doesnt show anything connected to it. DAMN keep me up to date with your progress. if there is anything i can do let me know. pace out.

    10.5.2 for the AMD impatient

    thx for telling me! I probably wouldnt have found out. if I used it at some point i would have probably almost forgotten what the issue could be related to. ohh yeah do you think it is also related to all those "family specific matching fails" errors for almost all my hardware? i mean the hardware works fine as before, but it still says it for almost every single piece of it during boot. ...thanks for reading and pace out...

    Driver for nForce4 LAN

    ok my specs are: MOBO • Thunder K8WE (S2895) PROCESSOR • 2x AMD Opteron 885 MEMORY • 8x 512mb hp ddr server ram GRAPHICS • NVIDEA Geforce 8400GS OS´s • Windows Vista Ultimate & Mac Os X Leopard 10.5.2 LAN • NVidea nForce 4 (dev id:0x0057, ven id:0x10DE) (eventhough it says in the manual of my mobo that it is a marvel SSE1111CAA controlled by the nForce Professional 2200/2050 Chipset) ok, basically i have similar issues to fayze´s. i get the repeating message, eventhough they seem to be below 100-200 when using the forcedeth-nockd.kext. i think the other kext that is loadable is the forcedeth-d.kext. the other 2 dont load at all (like fayze said). so when using the forcedeth-nockd.kext i have the best results but it crashes periodically when opening safari and loading the applepage. if i make it past the applepage it will freeze at the second one or when starting a download. now i have downloaded and installed the skge.kext, which works perfectly. it works like yours is supposed to be. only a very few crashes (i had two so far). that is an excerpt (is that spelled right?) from the system.log output: Feb 12 19:27:50 darius-magnoliuss-acpi kernel[0]: forcedeth: packet 80000000 - 8000062e Feb 12 19:27:51: --- last message repeated 92 times --- Feb 12 19:27:51 darius-magnoliuss-acpi kernel[0]: 000062e Feb 12 19:27:51 darius-magnoliuss-acpi kernel[0]: forcedeth: packet 80000000 - 8000062e Feb 12 19:27:52: --- last message repeated 92 times --- Feb 12 19:27:52 darius-magnoliuss-acpi kernel[0]: 000062e Feb 12 19:27:52 darius-magnoliuss-acpi kernel[0]: forcedeth: packet 80000000 - 8000062e Feb 12 19:27:55: --- last message repeated 283 times --- Feb 12 19:27:55 darius-magnoliuss-acpi kernel[0]: 000062e Feb 12 19:27:55 darius-magnoliuss-acpi kernel[0]: forcedeth: packet 80000000 - 8000062e Feb 12 19:27:56: --- last message repeated 92 times --- Feb 12 19:27:56 darius-magnoliuss-acpi kernel[0]: 000062e Feb 12 19:27:56 darius-magnoliuss-acpi kernel[0]: forcedeth: packet 80000000 - 8000062e Feb 12 19:27:57: --- last message repeated 92 times --- Feb 12 19:27:57 darius-magnoliuss-acpi kernel[0]: 000062e Feb 12 19:27:57 darius-magnoliuss-acpi kernel[0]: forcedeth: packet 80000000 - 8000062e Feb 12 19:28:00: --- last message repeated 283 times --- Feb 12 19:28:00 darius-magnoliuss-acpi kernel[0]: 000062e Feb 12 19:28:00 darius-magnoliuss-acpi kernel[0]: forcedeth: packet 80000000 - 8000062e Feb 12 19:28:01: --- last message repeated 91 times --- Feb 12 19:28:01 darius-magnoliuss-acpi kernel[0]: 000062e Feb 12 19:28:01 darius-magnoliuss-acpi kernel[0]: forcedeth: packet 80000000 - 8000062e Feb 12 19:28:02: --- last message repeated 93 times --- Feb 12 19:28:02 darius-magnoliuss-acpi kernel[0]: 000062e Feb 12 19:28:02 darius-magnoliuss-acpi kernel[0]: forcedeth: packet 80000000 - 8000062e Feb 12 19:28:05: --- last message repeated 282 times --- Feb 12 19:28:05 darius-magnoliuss-acpi kernel[0]: 000062e Feb 12 19:28:05 darius-magnoliuss-acpi kernel[0]: forcedeth: packet 80000000 - 8000062e Feb 12 19:28:06: --- last message repeated 92 times --- Feb 12 19:28:06 darius-magnoliuss-acpi kernel[0]: 000062e Feb 12 19:28:06 darius-magnoliuss-acpi kernel[0]: forcedeth: packet 80000000 - 8000062e Feb 12 19:28:07: --- last message repeated 93 times --- Feb 12 19:28:07 darius-magnoliuss-acpi kernel[0]: 000062e Feb 12 19:28:07 darius-magnoliuss-acpi kernel[0]: forcedeth: packet 80000000 - 8000062e unfortunately i dont have a saved log when i used the forcedeth-nockd.kext on its own, only this one using the skge.kext in combination. however, the other log didnt look that different, slightly more random repeating times, and sometimes there was something else i remember, which could have been the issue, but as i said i dont have a log to tell you what it was. My device id is listed in the info.plist, but if i could find the dev id fo a marvell chip as descibed in my mobo manual i could try and add it. maybe it would work? i havent found it yet though. btw. do you know why it is recognized as a nForce 4 Lan, eventhough it says something different in my manual? even windows detects it as a nForce 4 Lan with the same dev id and ven id. what chips does nForce4 lans usually use? marvell ones? p.s. sorry i didnt want to quote the whole thing. for some reason i might have hit the Apple+Z combo after deleting half of it, which wasnt meant to address the reply but something else to make undo? thx for reading... pace out

    10.5.2 for the AMD impatient

    ok my hackmac is now 10.5.2!!i thougt i messed it up after it restarted itself after installation, but i just booted with the dvd and replaced the kernel, AppleSMBIOS.kext and APPLACPIPlatform. i didnt even have to replace system.kext or anything else. after reboot applied the patches et voila boot into leo 10.5.2 thanks a lot. my terminal is working fine. dunno what it could be?

    Driver for nForce4 LAN

    Edit: removed the quote hey, i dunno if that driver was meant to solve the internet freezing issue as well and make it possible to boot without cpus=1 or if that driver is just intended for those mainboardowners where nforce4 lan just doesnt want to work. i have tried this driver, but unfortunately it doesnt solve my internet freezing problem. thanks anyways. maybe someone else has a clou how to use all cores and still be able to have ethernet working correctly? thx for reading!

    Firewire not recognized

    but remember when downloading the 2.5.6. release of the PCgenUSBEHCI.kext that you download and install the older IOUSBFamily.kext from Apple´s site prior to copying the PCgenUSBEHCI.kext to Extensions/IOUSBFamily.kext/Contents/Plugins as the 3.0.3 version will *not* work with the 2.5.6 version of the PC....kext. ...pace out
  15. hey guys, i am running leo 10.5.1 on a tyan k8we with two opterons 885. actually i just wanted to fix the firewire error "bla bla unable to determine security mode...setting to full secure" by installing the older IOFireWireFamily.kext from the 10.4.9 version. however, after installing, it had hit two birds with one stone, cuz the mach reboot issue has disappeared as well and now i dont have to always wait for 20 seconds anymore before it finally reboots. however, there is two more questions arising from that which are: is mach reboot then really connected to a kernel issue with sse2/sse3 only?, since my opteron supports both, sse2 and sse3 anyways. in "about this mac" my processors are not recognized, where i am not sure if that is normal since i am running it on a hackintosh? and also, i thought by installing the older kext my firewire would start working just like my usb ports worked after installing the older usbfamily.kext (10.4.6 or 7?)and throwing in the patched pcgenusbehci.kext by orbyte. but when connecting my macbook and holding down T during boot it wont show up on the hackintosh? any ideas? in system profiler it says my firewire is working but actual testing tells me something different. thx in advance, fLuXuS
