  1. [UEFIPatch] UEFI patching utility

    CodeRush thanks for the Utility! I did this manually a few months back but my MB craped out and was sent for repair. After 2 months of not wanting to mod it manually I stumble upon your utility, now I can boot my Mac Again! MSI Z77A GD 65 BIOS 10.6 BIOS 10.8
  2. Thanx Guys, I was able to mod my bios and flash it back via USB on the UEFI/BIOS menu. I found the sting around 2e30 on my hex-editor. A side effect I'm experiacing now is tearing and glitching under Windows 7 64bit on the second DVI of my XFX HD5850, while the card is over clocked (765/1115). The over clock was achieved using the AMD auto tune feature. As soon as I disable the over clock I have no problems. I've had this card for a long time so i'm not sure if its almost done or related to the mod. 6 Sep 2012 Edit Found out that my graphics glitch is related to a know issue with the HD5850 cards. System is running smooth. MSI z77a-GD65 (BIOS 10.5) 3570k i5
  3. Sleep Issues

    I have similar specs and after a whole night of following this post http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=278208 I was able to mod my bios. Afterwards I removed the NullCPU power kext and sleep works with native support. BTW Sleep takes like 15 seconds or so from the time I press the menu button to the time the fans completely stop. 3570 i5 MSI z77a-GD65
  4. #3. Set Windows 7 to use GMT time. Google "Fixing Time Sync issue with OSX/Windows & Linux" Your looking for "Prasy's Blog". This tells window that the BIOS time is in GMT as opposed to your local time zone, it will display the proper time.
  5. Mountain Lion (uni-beastInstall) Was using Had to change the kext in the hidden Extra folder in the USB installer to @hnak Thanks for your effort! System Core i5 3570K MSI Z77A-GD65 XFX HD5850
  6. I just got the iPC 10.5.6 Universal PPF5 Final, but everything I can think off gives me a kernel panic related to the CPU. U guys did anything special or should I try to burn the disc again? BTW the MD5 Hash was good so I know the ISO is good.
  7. Updated 01/13/09 Every thing that is important works except for the display i'm stuck at 1024x768, The sound works but its choppy unless u move the mouse around and the wifi light is dim and I can't connect to my wpa2 aes wifi connection but an open network works fine. I researched the forums to get some help installing Leopard on a Dell Inspiron 1526 but had no luck. I spent like 2 days already reinstalling OS X Leopard on this Laptop using the "Kalyway 10.5.2 DVD Intel_Amd (sse2/sse3)" ISO, so here is the settings that have worked the best for me so far. Pre install settings: -BIOS- I'm not 100% this makes a difference but either way... HDD Acoustic Mode - Bypass Power Now! Enable - OFF -Prep HD- I'm doing a Vista, Ubuntu 8.10, OS X set up. The simplest way to set up a partition for OS X was using GParted from the Ubuntu installation CD. You just need a partition bigger than 6 Gigs, I set up a 20 Gig primary partition and formated it as Fat 32 so the Installer for OSX can see it. -Kalyway 10.5.2 DVD Intel_Amd (sse2/sse3) I seen a youtube video that had the guy press -v -x -f on the Darwin boot screen. I find that it makes this system boot the fastes. So when you launch the DVD at the "press F8" screen press F8 and type in -v -x -F press enter Wait about 10 minutes for the system to boot up the gui. When the install screen comes up, format the Fat 32 partition (if your just using a partition, you can also use the whole drive) by selecting utilities from the top menu and using "Disk Utility". Select the partition and choose to erase it as "Mac OS Extended (Journaled)". Note- I read some where that the label should have no spaces. Now exit Disk Utility. Proceed till you choose your drive (and select it), hit next. Now hit Custom. Here is what has work for me so far: Kernel: Kernel_9.2_Sleep Graphics: None Audio: None Network: Defualt selection + Broadcom wifi Mother Board: AppleVIAATA, AppleGenericpcata SSe2: none Patches: Lastnetkassmbios, TimeMachineFix, PowerManagement_bundle, USBPCGen AMD: Patch test 2 The other stuff is optonal. (ie. Languge..) Now your ready to install. It takes about 1 hour for everything to finish. When the system first boot it should take like 3-5 min if not faster. If you have a lan line connected it will boot faster. As of now this is what is Not Working: ATI X1270 (need proper drivers) SD Card reader modem What Is Working: Key board Touch pad Webcam USB ports Firewire (I dont have anything to test it but it shows up) DVD drive Ethernet Card (works Out the box) Sound Card (Make a codec dump or use the one attached to this post then use AppleHDAPatcherv1.20 to install it, delete the AppleAzalia.kext from system\library\extensions and repair disk permissions) Wifi (use the bcm43xx_enabler_0.5.2.sh.zip on the post) If any one has any input on how to make the other componets work please show us how you did it. Enjoy! codecdump.txt
  8. man if you cant even get it to boot up I suggest you really read up before you do anything else. My dell PCs usually require me to press F12 to bring up the one time boot menu and then you pick CD/DVD (or something to that effect). You should see something like 000000 on the upper left corner of the screen when Darwin starts up then it should say press F8 (hit F8 and then type -v then hit enter), If you do this and it doesn't work then ur probably burning the DVD too fast. I took the long route and burn the iso at 2x, I've had a lot of problems with self booting cds and dvds that I just slow it down every time.
  9. Well I guess Its working kinda working on the Dell 1526. I did not choose audio or network drivers. I disable all 3rd party software (I'm sure this is irrelevant). For the ati x1270 i picked the x1000 drivers and the nati. For the patches i choose the ss2 patch and the test 1 & 2 and the last thing. I should have wrote all this down, anyway for the rest I just made sure I desable all the intel related stuff. I'm probably going to re install and start a tread on this PC.
  10. I'm trying to install this distro on a dell inspiron 1526 but i'm unsure what options to choose during the customization. Can any one who has been successful on a Dell AMD laptop give me some feed back dell inspiron 1526 AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core TK-57 integrated graphics ATI Mobility Radeon X1270 SATA hard disk 120GB
  11. OS X for SSE (qemu)

    I took a long break from messing with my method, it started to {censored} me off. Any way I modify the dragon slax iso, basically put it on a diet. It uses a total of 156MB after loading Xorg using fluxbox, this is great cause it uses less memory than dragons iso. The problem is that even on my 1.2Ghz P3 it still runs slowwww! I'm gonna try to make a module using the stuff in this website http://alex.csgraf.de/self/?qemu/ , I hope to get a speed increase using this method. On the core boot topic, the problem is that it doesn't work with a lot of the P3 mother board chipsets (I have the Intel 815 & 830) so it would limit who will actually benefit from this, especially laptop users. I wonder if it would be easier to find a cpu socket 370 converter (I know there used to be Pentium 1 to Pentium 3 converters) to plug in a pentium 4 and just do OSX natively that way OR via qemu+kqemu (if mother board chipset incompatibilities). Well scratch that last one, I guess you can go P1 to P3 but P4's FSB is totally different so no P4 to P3 converter.
  12. OS X for SSE (qemu)

    Thanx Eddie Turfboer, as long as some one finds this interesting I'll keep trying to do this.
  13. OS X for SSE (qemu)

    ok after searching for days on info I got Slax to boot into flux box using 156 MB of ram, its more than I would like it to be but looking at the packages it retain (like the wifi stuff) and running kernel 2.6.16 I think is OK. I need to iron out some edges on it first before i'm done. I also haven't use that qemu patch yet but I'm hopping to do it soon. Is there absolutely no one else remotely interested in this? I got my banged up ibm laptop running again so I'm hopping this work to bring live back to it.

  14. OS X for SSE (qemu)

    I think that might be the way to go (DSL). I customized SLAX but it acts wiered and I can't really find support for it, at lest not for what I'm trying to do (Slax frodo +xorg +blackbox +qemu 9.0). If any one out there can help me with this I would appreciate it.
  15. OS X for SSE (qemu)

    I ran Dam Small Linux from the live cd instead of qemu and I notice it actually takes around 70MB of ram. Right now I have Slax frodo running X.org with no window (i'm also able to run blackbox but I'm trying to see if we even need a window manager) manager taking up 70MB of ram but its inside vmware. I need to figure out if this will give us sound and networking abilities. I'll post again later.
