  1. If u used the same method I did, then it's the DSDT. I'm not sure how I got into leopard but I know that even if you do...it won't be what you want. Your best bet is to find a way to build a DSDT for this particular board. We could use the help of some decent coders. Right now it's like trying to start an engine that takes unleaded with deisel. Even if you get it started...it won't end well. Not that this is connected because my last hard drive had been used a lot....but it died on me once I got in snow leopard as I was xferring data. Believe me...do it the right way.
  2. Yeah it failed on me too. I was still able to boot but I had to use the USB drive to do it. Because it's my production machine, I had to switch back to iatkos v7 10.5.8. I have a feeling that it fails because the method i used wasn't for the DG33tl specifically. I think we need a proper DSDT for the DG33TL and then we'd be in business. And of course, the proper kexts. Sorry I can't be more helpful, m8.
  3. Hey all, I've used this guide to successfully install osx86 onto my dv3510nr. Couple issues: My wireless adapter is turned on maybe 1 out of every 5 boots. Otherwise, system preferences says the airport is off and doesn't respond to the 'turn on' button. The second issue is my usb wireless mouse. Maybe 2 of every 5 boots it will work properly. Otherwise it will not work at all or be jumpy (moving every 2nd second.) I did install that universal kext for the ICH issue, hasn't seemed to alleviate these issues. Any help is appreciated.
  4. I believe the hard drive on the system has died. Resetting the bios had no effect. I tweaked and changed every setting in the BIOS that I could with the same result. Diskpart on a Windows Vista recovery disk cannot find the drive. Going to swap in a new drive and just get back to iatkos v7 for now.
  5. Hmm.. Thought I'd get a response overnight. This morning I'm going pul the cmos battery and hope that it will allow my board to recognize the HDD again. Even just a point to the proper guide for this board would be helpful. Or a guide to building a pen drive for any board and what it entails. Thanks Chad
  6. Cancel that successful restart. Turns out the only reason it restarted was because I still had the bootable thumb drive in the computer and I could select the new SL partition. Edit: Now it appears that the HD is non existent. The computer, including the bios doesn't see the HD. Any ideas?
  7. Hi all, I have successfully installed 10.6.0 on my Intel DG33TL motherboard. You might remember this board from the intel purchase program a couple years ago. In the past I've had successful installs with Kalyway up to 10.5.6 I believe and iatkos up to v7. This, however, is a retail install. I've been out of the game for probably 8 months or so and just came back 2 days ago. I used the following method linked from osx86project wiki: http://osx86sv.wordpress.com/2009/09/30/ma...-usb-pen-drive/ Yes it occurred to me that I was using a guide intended for an asus board and not intel. I suppose this board isn't a popular one because I can't find much new information on it as it relates to snow leopard. It is my hope that posting these findings and requesting help from people far more knowledgeable than I, we can get my existing system up to 10.6.2 with everything working (perhaps wishful thinking). Here's the rundown in easy image format: About this mac: Hardware overview in SP: Wireless: I'm using a dynex PCI wireless card purchased from Best Buy. Here's the profiler SS Graphics: I have an 8800gt card by BFG @ 512MB. Dual-DVI. I don't know if SL is just that shiny but it's a bit irritating to read on this screen. Here's what profiler sees: How can I get the proper card identification here? RAM: Currently I'm using 4GB of DDR2 667MHz RAM. Profiler sees something slightly different...: I wish I had DDR3. Can this be corrected? SATA Drives. I have a 320GB seagate SATA drive. This board uses the ICH9 chipset which appears to be correct here yes?: USB Ports. Everything looks in order here. I do have working sound with this USB headset but no on board as of yet: Now to give you a rundown of what things looked like on my USB stick upon install.

If you need something different, just ask. What I want to accomplish is a proper retail install with everything working for this board. So far I'm functional. I have internet, graphics and sound...but as you can see, some stuff just looks screwy. A couple of noted posts about this particular mobo that I've found: Modified AHCI Controller for ICH9 - Not sure if I need to change anything at the moment because I think it's correctly identified. Am I wrong? Link to the Wiki Note: I believe I'm in 64bit mode currently. Other note: When installing retail sleo, it said the installed failed at the end and could not properly identify or load the startup disk. However, the computer booted into OSX sleo and I was able to complete the setup. Final thoughts: I have read about DSDT, Chameleon, and EFI but it's hard to process all this stuff after being out of the game for so long. I apologize for any noobery in this post. I tried to put time into it and give you lots of information. I really can't stand posts that say "Help, it's broke, and I don't know how to fix it" and then give you nothing else. I hope there are a couple of folks out there who can help me bring the DG33TL to snow leopard for others. I haven't even restarted since I installed. If it doesn't restart properly, I'll be sure to note it Update 1-05-10 @ 9:09pm Est - Successfully restarted. Noticed upon sending computer into restart that it failed to unmount /home/(can't remember, it flickred and then restarted) Thanks All Chad
  8. HP dv5t-1000 CTO OSX86 installation guide

    dev id:111D76B2 I have this card in a Dv3510nr I've upgraded to 10.5.6 The sound works fine and it detects my internal mic...but I don't have any input controls. Any ideas?
  9. [HOW TO] Getting IDT Audio Working

    I'm quoting this post because this kext works on my HP dv3510nr...almost. I originally installed this kext on an iDeneb installation 10.5.5. I used this kext out of sheer desperation as I had been attempting to make my own following the guide. To my surprise...it worked! Everything worked, including the built in mic. Fast forward a bit to an iATKOS v5i installation, vanilla everything. A successful upgrade to 10.5.6 straight from software update. I am running the 9.6 vanilla kernel. The system is running much better now and this same kext still gives me audio. However, my microphone shows no input controls in system preferences. Here's the kicker, my device id is 0x103C1505 The binary in that kext and the information in the plists all points to this poster's device id which is 111D76B2. I believe the reason the sound works is because we share the same (pin config, oicpprimary match?, I don't know what it's called) but it's 0x293e8086 That does match my system. What I don't understand is how the microphone somehow got lost in the switch from iDeneb to iATKOS. I'm very diligent about searching for my answers via google and various forums, but this one is stumping me. Any help is appreciated. I have attached two screenshots of my system.
  10. I have an HP "Blue Label" dv3510nr notebook. Here are some specs just to lay the groundwork. Intel PM45 chipset Centrino 2 Duo T7350 2.0ghz 4GB DDR2 800Mhz Nvidia GeForce 9300gs 512MB This is a relatively new notebook that hit the market exclusively at best buy in September. I have successfully installed iDeneb v1.3 on my computer. Everything works except for the fingerprint scanner . Ive solved my wireless issue with a linksys pc card. Up until today, I was dual booting windows 7 with os x. I noticed that Windows 7 ran much cooler than OS X. I can tell this only by feeling the fan output. Temp monitor does not sense the CPU temp, only HD. My fans are working and I'm not running into any shutdown issues in OS X, it's just annoyingly warmer than Windows. I'm cuurently running 9.5 vanilla kernel. Any suggestions??
  11. Can you load up Diskpart on the laptop itself? Perhaps with the Vista DVD? Try and set the disk active through that.
  12. Have you set the partition as active?
  13. AppleHDA Solution - Work in progress

    Kudos to this site for all the great help. I have Mac OS X 10.5.2 running stable on my Intel Bundle, with one minor issue. I'll give you my relevant specs first. Board: Intel DG33TL Media Series CPU: Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 Audio: Sigmatel STAC9271D RAM: PNY PC 5300 x 4GB Dual Booting Windows Vista and Mac OS X 10.5.2 Kalyway Graphics: Nvidia 8800 GT OC by BFG HDD: Seagate 320GB SATA WiFi: Dynex Wireless G PCI card. As to my particular issue: So far the only success I've found with sound is the STAC9271D for testing kexts posted on the first post of this thread. Something interesting to note is that those kexts will not work with the latest BIOS from Intel. I'm currently using a BIOS from November 2007. Using those "for testing" kexts, I was able to get sound out of both the front and rear audio out jacks (Green). In my Audio MIDI setup, Internal Speaker is my default out and it controls both of those jacks. I can not change the MASTER slider, only the R and L slider (audio levels). I am OK with this...I get sound and that's great. However, I would like to use some of the great production programs offered on the Mac to create a recurring podcast. What makes me hopeful that this is possible is that those testing kexts to allow me to get Audio input! I can record with my Mic. The problem is, the properties in the Audio MIDI setup do not allow me to change any input levels whatsoever. They are grayed out and un-clickable. They are set very very low. Just to bring you up to speed on a couple of different things I've tried: - I have used my own dump with the command cat /proc/asound/card0/codec#2 > /blahblahblah/itdoesntmatter.txt . I used the Ubuntu Live CD 7.10 to get this plaintext file. I used HDApatcher 1.15, 1.16, and 1.20 and achieved the same result....no sound whatsoever. The only way I get any input/output is with the STAC9271D for testing kexts. To summarize, I need to be able to change my line-in levels. Any help would be appreciated.
  14. Sigmatel HD Audio

    Any luck yet with 10.5.2 Kalyway and Sigmatelstac9271D on the Intel DG33TL Board? Why oh why did they pick this board for the intel bundle!?! Here are my specs Intel DG33TL 4GB Ram Nvidia 8800GT 320 Seagate HD Dual Booting Vista and Kalyway 10.5.2 Leopard fully updated w/ vanilla kernel Eager to hear some good news!!
  15. Getting DG33TL to work

    Hiya folks! Newcomer here. I've been doing some research on installing OSX on the PC and happened to find this little post which pertains to me. I'm another one of those intel bundle buyers. Here's my current setup. Intel DG33TL Board Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 Nvidia 8800GTOC 4GB PC5300 RAM Seagate 320GB SATA Hard Drive Maxtor 40GB IDE Hard Drive Samsung Super WriteMaster SH-S203 Now that puny little 40GB was my hopeful Mac destination. What I need to know atm is this; What drive setup should I be using? From what I've read, RAID is not reccomended. IDE Native or ACHI? Some direction here would be helpful. I understand the LAN card is a lost card. I prefer a wired setup and I assume I can pick up a PCI LAN card and I'll be good to go? I'd like to keep this DG33TL conversation going, rather than trying to peice together 1000 different ideas from all over. Thanks
