  1. ATI Radeon 6xxx, working QE/CI

    Exactly, my old E6600 is holding my video card back. For comparison, I'll do the benchmarks again in a couple of week with a new i5-2500k like Andy

    what card do you have? Every 6870 reference works with this procedure, not just the Sapphire (HIS, PowerColor, XFX, Gigabyte,...)

    How do you use this benchmark in Windows? On Mac I had ~2300/2400 fps for OpenGL 1.1-2.1, but doesn't SL support up to OpenGL 3.0? In Windows I tried to run without Forward Context (so that, if I understood correctly, lets you run OpenGL 1.1-2.1 tests so that I could compare the results with Mac) and I got the results attached.

    24 fps in OpenGL is a shi**y result, compared to the 50 I have in Windows, but honestly who cares? Not many people are going to play on Mac OS so this result is irrelevant for me. The power of a graphic card is based not only on the raw power but also on the optimization of the drivers, and clearly non-Apple VGA's aren't optimized.

    @Andy I haven't tried replacing the OpenGL Framwork because I'm afraid of breaking something, but i did notice that the folder sizes are different (52.4 vs 47.2 MB); no big deal, maybe they just made some optimization... not worth risking, I'll wait the full 10.6.7 update. And I haven't purchased the 1155 mobo yet because of the Intel chipset problem, they are slowly restocking them in my country, there should be plenty available in a couple of weeks; anyway, I'm planning on buying an Asus, Gigabyte or MSI mobo with P67 chipset, so maybe I'll buy the P8P67 since it's tested and working. I'll let you know. Thanks

    Yeah I know, I just wanted to try if the C2D worked before selling it, just as an exercise. Thanks for the remainder. Just a quick question: do you think that installing the OpenGL framework you posted would improve my OpenGL benchmark?
  7. ATI Radeon 6xxx, working QE/CI

    Some benchmarks: CINEBENCH 11.5 x64 OPENGL - Windows: 42.24 fps - Mac OS: 27.71 fps (good enough for me, I don't plan on playing in Mac, that's what Windows is for) CPU - Windows: 1.67 - Mac OS: 1.66 (can't wait for my i5-2500k to arrive next week and double this )

    Great, thanks for helping me. I'll stick around to help anyone who needs suggestions. Cheers

    Looks like it's working great now,even after several reboots. I used Kext Utility to rebuild caches instead of Kext Helper. Now, how can I verify if I have QE/CI and OpenGL? The menu bar is translucent and when I add a widget there's the water ripple effect: what does it mean? Here's every step I did, for people who were in my same situation: 1) burned [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] Legacy (beacuse my VGA isn't supported) on a cd and rebooted with the DVD Rom as the primary booting device 2) switched the [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] cd with Snow Leopard 10.6.0 Retail DVD and pressed F5 3) press Entry on the MAC OS X Install DVD using the GraphicsEnabler=NO flag 4) install on the GUID partition on your hard drive created with Disk Utility from the Menu bar 5) after finishing the install, reboot with the [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] Legacy CD in your dvd rom (again using the the GraphicsEnabler=NO flag) 6) you should see your desktop in 1024x768 resolution 7) download the 10.6.6 Combo Update from Apple website and install it (DO NOT REBOOT after finishing, put the window in background without closing it) 8) download [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] from tonymacx86 site and install it, checking only [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] and the 2 System Utilities (Rebuild caches and Repair System Permissions) 9) go to Extensions/Extra and modify the com.apple.Boot.plist: GraphicsEnabler=NO 10) eject the [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] cd and reboot 11) download the kexts that Andy uploaded and put them in your System/Library/Extensions folder, overwriting everything it asks 12) download Kext Utility 2.4.2 form kexts.com and run it: it should end with "Have a good day(night)", otherwise it failed rebuilding the caches 13) reboot and it should work (at least it did for me)

    Thanks Andy, I'll try again; any more info about your config is appreciated. Thanks
  11. ATI Radeon 6xxx, working QE/CI

    Hi, first of all thanks for the uploads and the reports of this method working; I'm trying to get my Sapphire 6870 working with little success, I managed to make it work just one time but after a restart things went back to the 1024x768 resolution with no QE/CI. It would be great if people that succeeded would post just a few info on their config, in particular the version of [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] used (normal or legacy?) and where they put the kexts, in E/E or S/L/E, even better if you could post all the steps from the clean install of 10.6.6 to a working setup. Also, does it make a difference which HDMI port I'm using? Thanks again, and sorry for the newbie questions, I'm new to the Hackintosh scene.

    Ciao, prova: start-> click col dx su risorse del computer-> gestione computer -> gestione disco sulla destra e controlla che il tuo hard disk sia "di base" e non "dinamico". Se è dinamico leggi qua http://mypkb.wordpress.com/2007/03/28/how-...to-basic-disks/
  13. giuda per un novizio!

    Ciao e benvenuto, anch'io sono nuovo del progetto, ho iniziato circa 1 settimana fa ed ho installato con successo la JAS 10.4.8 (la trovi nella baia dei pirati cercando jas 10.4.8 AMD-INTEL SSE2 SSE3 with PPF1 & PPF2) e poi se vuoi ti installi l'update alla 10.4.9, di cui però non ho il link sottomano, cerca anche quello in giro x il forum o nella baia. E per il dual boot ti consiglio questa guida: http://wiki.osx86project.org/wiki/index.ph...le_And_Accurate, che spiega il dual boot con windows e tiger, solo che tu al posto di windows ci metti linux. Spero di esserti stato d'aiuto. Ciao!
  14. Ciao a tutti, sono finalmente riuscito ad installare OSX 10.4 in dual-booting sul mio fisso, usando il file tiger-x86-flat.img e chain0 per il dualboot. Funziona tutto benissimo (anche internet e il sonoro) ma non riesco a installare niente! Ho provato con le applicazioni sul sito della Apple nella sezione Downloads: mi scarica il .dmg, lo monto, copio i file che ci sono dentro nelle Applicazioni, ci clicco sopra e appare il "fantasmino" dell'icona come quando lanci tutti i programmi, ma poi non succede niente. La mia versione di OSX e' la 10.4.1, e' un po' vecchia ma non credo sia un problema perche' non mi installa neanche Microsoft Messenger, che sul sito della Apple dicono sia compatibile con la 10.3.9. Aiutatemi please, o almeno ditemi come aggiornare la 10.4.1. Grazie a tutti! MSI P4M900M Intel P4 3.0 Ghz (SSE2 & SSE3) 2GB RAM Video: VIA (integrato)
  15. Hi, I just managed to install OSX and dual-booting it with Windows XP on my pc, using chain0. Everything works great, even the internet and the sound, but I can't install anything. I tried with the apps on the Apple site, in the Download section... nothing works, neither iTunes. I download the .dmg, I mount it, I copy the file inside in Applications, but when I try to launch it, nothing happens... The version is the old 10.4.1 (I installed it with the tiger-x86-flat.img), and I can't find anywhere how to update it. By the way, I don't think it doesn't install anything because of the version, since when I tried installing Windows Messenger 6.0.3 (which is compatible with 10.3.9) nothing happens. Please help me, or tell me how I can update this version! Thx MSI P4M900M P4 3.0Ghz with SSE2 & SSE3 2GB RAM Video integrated
