    Snow Leopard on Gigabyte Mobos

    Back up and running with kexts listed above installed. Used VoodooHDA for sound running 10.6.7 but this caused a KP in 10.6.8. Used [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] to install working sound in 10.6.8. Thanks for your offer to help.
  2. The above worked well on my board for 10.6.7 but VoodooHDA produced a KP when I installed 10.6.8 (Update Combo) on my test HDD. After trying a number of things, I went back to [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] 3.8: [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] System Utilities - Repair permissions - Repair caches Drivers and & Bootloaders - Kexts & Enablers - Audio (only!) - Realtek ACL8xx - AppleHDA Rollback - Non-DSDT HDAEnabler (all checkboxes below) This established sound and shows my built-in Audio ID as 892, which is correct for the 1.3 mobo version. I probably didn't need to install all of the other Non-DSDT kexts, but didn't realize it at the time.
  3. Your post was helpful because I had to replace my original GA P-35C with another socket 775 board to continue using my Q6600 CPU. I happened to choose a GA P-43T. I had the same sound issues as you and others, and did not have success with ALC8xxHDA + AppleHDA Rollback. I decided to try installing the latest VoodooHDA. For the first time, I had devices showing in Sound Preferences and obtained sound through Line Out. But I had the same white noise in the background as others described. I was able to eliminate the white noise by turning the Input/Input volume level to zero for each input device. I did the same as well in VoodooHDA preferences, which is shown at the bottom of the System Preferences window under Other. (Hope this helps anyone else strugging with this problem.)

    May be moot point now. Just as with the P35C, rig suddenly will not power on. At all. Had intermittent problems powering on after new mobo install, but now it's as dead as it suddenly was with the P35C. Using a 10-year-old G4 Digital Audio with upgraded CPU to write this. This one powers on repeatedly from same electrical socket, same cord as Hack rig. Sheesh.

    Thanks. This is from my cloned, backup SL implementation. Board is Rev. 1.3, ALC888/892 codec FYI, yesterday I experimented with kexts added using [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url]. I haven't touched the DSDT from the original implementation on my GA P35C. Haven't installed Hackboot because my original Chameleon, on the Leopard HDD, now works. kextstat.txt
  6. Fixed the problem by simply enabling keyboard and mouse USB in the BIOS! Afterward Leopard and Snow Leopard booted up beautifully. Merely have to fix sound next. (Then there's Lion...) :->

    Fixed it! I merely had to enable the USB mouse and keyboard in the BIOS - and everything booted up beautifully! Now I merely have to enable sound. Any other recommendations to refine my implementation with your files? Thanks!

    I'd been running SL and Leopard successfully on my GA-P35C (see sig) until the mobo failed. I replaced it with the GA-P43T-ES3G to continue using my CPU. When I attempt to boot up with Chameleon, which is on my Leopard HDD, I cannot interact with the GUI with my keyboard or mouse. I thought I would try to resolve this by applying your files, beginning with installing Hackboot v5 on my SL HDD. I got to the Hackboot GUI but had the same experience. Could not interact with the screen. There have been initial boot problems when more than 4 GB RAM is installed. I have 8 GB installed and it is DD3 rather than DDR2 which was on the previous mobo. I may pull out a 4 GB stick and try again, but that's never been a problem booting before. Thanks for any help you can provide.
  9. After using Kakewalk successfully on my GA-P35C, I had to replace the motherboard with a GA-P43T-ES3G. I did this to continue using my CPU. When I attempt to boot up with Chameleon, I cannot interact with the screen with my keyboard or mouse. What can I do to resolve this? I had the same experience using a Hackboot CD created by a user of my motherboard. There have been initial boot problems when more than 4 GB RAM is installed. I have 8 GB installed and it is DD3 rather than DD2 which was on the previous mobo. Thanks for any help you can provide.

    SleepEnabler for 10.6.7 x64 [UPDATED]

    Worked beautifully for me - attempted first on test HDD, then production HDD: Install Update (not Combo Update) after downloading from Apple Support Do not restart Install SleepEnabler for 10.6.7 using KextUtility 2.3.2 (wasn't aware of new Kext app!) Quit KextUtility Restart Repair Permissions using Disk Utility No other issues.

    Kext´s for Nvidia GTS250?

    I could not get Aquamac's method to work - I could not create my own GFX string, so I experimented with others on this forum and found one that worked. However, it did not allow me to change resolutions. That didn't matter so much because I specified the highest resolution in com.apple.boot.plist. After further research, I implemented NVEnabler64.kext. This allowed me to change resolutions and displayed more info in System Profiler. Everything seems to be working...although I haven't tested HD.
  12. Worked beautifully for me: Install Combo Update, but not from Software Update Delete old SleepEnabler.kext from Extra\Extensions Install new SleepEnabler.kext using KextUtility 2.3.2 Reboot Thanks

    What network cards work?

    I know this is supposed to be about cards, but a few people have added working USB wireless products. I just installed the Rosewill RNX-NI WirelessN USB using the Ralink 10.6.2 installer from the Rosewill web site and it worked with 10.6.4 in 64-bit OOB.
  14. Why do they continue to feature 5400RPM HDDs? So dated.
  15. Sound now works on P35C-DS3R! After experimenting with different kexts and having no success, I installed the Kakewalk bootloader for EP45-UD3LR on my Snow Lep partition and added the kexts that had been in \E\E previously. Voila! Sound through speakers (select Built-In Speakers) and headphones (select Built-In Line Out). One more hurdle: WIFI - that probably will mean a different network adapter, but a new one won't break the bank!!
