  1. hi Leon, to have success on a hack, it would be good to gain some basic knowledge hint 1: post #733 hint 2: kext utility Good luck!
  2. hi Leon, no, just copy is not enough. You have to set the right ownership and permissions. I would recommend to test without additional cards or/and play around with the Graphics Injection of Clover. Good luck!
  3. hi Leon, do you see the Clover Boot Screen during startup? If yes, select the correct boot device, press Space Bar and select "without caches". Be aware that FakeSMC has to be installed to /S/L/E. Your computer should be start in verbose mode, so you can see what's happen. Good luck!
  4. hi Leon, running 10.6.8 there you will have no sound & LAN after sleep not even with Clover (thus my tests, but I didn't make further research). So you can stay with Chameleon and be happy Good luck!
  5. hi Bogdan, try this one, should work with Clover r2184. But edit the section "Memory" before. Good luck! Edit: Sorry, didn't mind that you could have a different CPU than I. Please delete the hole key "CPU". Clover will detect it by itself. config.plist.zip
  6. hi BogdanFa, for install options see the attachment. And don't forget to select a theme. After installation copy the DSDT.aml into the generated EFI folder (/EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/patched) and generate a config.plist (see Clover Wiki). Important edits in this config.plist - section ACPI -> DSDT -> name -> SSDT -> insert key "DropOem" with value "yes" -> SSDT -> Generate -> CStates/PStates - "yes" - section Boot p.r.n. DefaultVolume and Timeout - section GUI ScreenResolution (if your monitor not reports the right values) and Theme - section KernelAndKextPatches AppleRTC - "yes" - section SMBIOS insert the key "Memory" and edit it corresponding your hardware otherwise "About my Mac" will crash <key>Memory</key> <dict> <key>Channels</key> <integer>2</integer> <key>Modules</key> <array> <dict> <key>Frequency</key> <integer>800</integer> <key>Part</key> <string></string> <key>Serial</key> <string></string> <key>Size</key> <integer>2048</integer> <key>Slot</key> <integer>0</integer> <key>Type</key> <string>DDR2</string> <key>Vendor</key> <string>Corsair</string> </dict> <dict> <key>Frequency</key> <integer>800</integer> <key>Part</key> <string></string> <key>Serial</key> <string></string> <key>Size</key> <integer>2048</integer> <key>Slot</key> <integer>2</integer> <key>Type</key> <string>DDR2</string> <key>Vendor</key> <string>Corsair</string> </dict> </array> <key>SlotCount</key> <integer>4</integer> </dict> These are the basics. You can also play with Audio and Graphics injection, but there is no need for this, because we have it in our DSDT. Good luck!
  7. Short info for the last of the Mohicans on this board ;-) With the boot loader Clover by slice you will have sound and LAN after sleep. Good luck!
  8. ... for everyone who wants to test it. Good luck! chameleon-rev2181.zip
  9. Congratulations! It depends on your demands. Goto the first page. dlach has linked to an usb audio adapter. All kexts have to be installed in /S/L/E to use option "UseKernelCache" in chameleon, IntelCPUmonitor.kext too (not inside FakeSMC). But IntelCPUmonitor depends on FakeSMC, so don't use a newer version of it. The pair inside my boot stick should work. Maybe you will be frustrated about this: The PCIe x1 slot conforms to PCIe 1.0 - so you will have no benefit using the slot for a SATA3 controller card. Haven't a clue, if such a card will work in the graphic slot and - much more important - if you can boot in this configuration. To be honest I would spend my money in view of this board.
  10. Hi andersson.j, chameleon-rev2050.zip is for a persistent HD installation of the boot loader (no need of the boot stick). Suppose this is what you want and assume the downloaded and unzipped file is in your Downloads folder - follow these steps: 1. plugin your Boot Stick (should be mounted automaticly) 2. fire up Terminal.app (will ask you for your Password after the first sudo command) sudo cp -R /Volumes/ChameleonBoot/Extra / sudo chown -R root:wheel /Extra sudo chmod -R 755 /Extra sudo mv /Extra/Extensions/* /System/Library/Extensions/ sudo touch /System/Library/Extensions ... and now comes the installation of chameleon itself, assume your OSX is on first disk (/dev/rdisk0) and first partition (/dev/rdisk0s2) - otherwise you have to change the numbers (check it with DiskUtility.app) cd Downloads/chameleon-rev2050 sudo ./fdisk440 -f boot0md -u -y /dev/rdisk0 sudo dd if=boot1h of=/dev/rdisk0s2 sudo cp boot / ... and finally you have to edit the file org.chameleon.boot.plist sudo nano -w /Extra/org.chameleon.boot.plist Here you have to change the key Default Partition to hd(0,2), the key GraphicsEnabler to No and add the key UseKernelCache <key>Default Partition</key> <string>hd(0,2)</string> <key>GraphicsEnabler</key> <string>No</string> <key>UseKernelCache</key> <string>Yes</string> That's it. Reboot without Boot stick. If it fails, try to boot with the Option -f (ignore caches). For audio (with toleda's kext): Fire up Terminal.app sudo mv /Extra/additional/DSDT-sound-toleda.aml /Extra/DSDT.aml I would advise to try out the multi b. thing. Download the app and open. Be aware you have ONLY check the box ALC889a/885 in the "with DSDT" section during installation. Reboot. Good luck!
  11. @ Warped Thanks for the information. @ andersson.j Can you post a link to the tutorial used to create the ML stick?
  12. ... nice to read. How did you solve the problem with lost LAN after sleep?
  13. That's your problem: My method only works with a VANILLA install medium, which means no Extra-Folder, no Chameleon installation on it. Please read the instructions, linked in the posts. Good luck!
  14. Hi Warped, can you boot your vanilla USB Install Image with my ChameleonBoot Stick?
  15. We could solve this problem by a BIOS flash, if Gigabyte ships a new, correct one (very unlikely to happen). Windows and Linux check the memory map reporting by BIOS in the early boot process to clear overlaps and other inconsistancies - OSX doesn't. So Chameleon must do it. That's life on a GA-E7AUM
