  1. I am ZERO luck with my ethernet. I have the exact same mobo as you. Though mine is rev 1.1 and a F14 version BIOS. Can please someone help?!? Thank you a ton.
  2. Thanks for the reply. I wound up doing some bios tweaks and it worked (why 10.7.4 was ok and 10.8 wasn't IDK why). I Still have some issues with my video card (had the same issues in 10.7, should of bought a more compatible card for OS X), also with my sound (using a usb sound card for now). Other than that it is working fine. Thanks again, Tinfoil
  3. Hey everyone. I have followed the guide from http://webcache.goog...s&client=safari (original site doesnt display) and then the side notes from another post on here (use r1999 chameleon for example) Specs: P5W-DH Deluxe Asus Q6600 Intel Quad Core 7GB RAM ATI HD 5600 I get the bootloader then do a -v and this is the last thing I see before the computer just restarts on its own. . I have the mach_kernel in the root partition (using a 2nd drive and split the installer *first partition* to 9gb then the rest for the install) I am running the latest 10.7.4 with no issues and been doing this since 10.5 . Can someone help me plz? TinFoil
  4. Long as u done the EthernetBuiltIn Yes key on smbios then it shouldn't be a GUID/UUID problem.. Im betting this stuff has been locked out for tomorrows Lion release..
  5. The no QE and CI support is what worries me on this laptop. Seems like it would be an issue..
  6. Anyone try Lion on this guy yet? The no Quartz Extreme and Core Image from snow leopard is almost a deal breaker. I highly doubt going to lion will fix this. I got this laptop from a friend in possibly buying it.. So yah, any trials and success? TinFoil
  7. After much fiddling I finally got lion working with my 8600GTS. Running in 64bit with just Graphics Enabler does the trick.. Im having a problem getting sound up. I was using Woodys Kext but I can't find it anymore.. Also if I do find it will it work in 64 bit? P.S. Well I did find it (my own post lol) and tried every different way under the sun from my own made dsdt and 3,1 or 2,1 smbios... 10.6.2, newer 10.6 and 10.7 extensions.. All nothing... ( Thanks in Advance, Tinfoil
  8. Hello all. I can now get snow leopard to see my AFP (from a mac server) for time machine, yet I get this indexing backup problem. It tries to then just stops.

  9. Soon as I add "defaults write com.apple.systempreferences TMShowUnsupportedNetworkVolumes 1" then go to time machine to select the drive, system preferences freezes. If I change it back to 0, it works again. Any tips? Thanks in advance!
  10. First I used parts of forums from all over. Second I have netflix running in another window. I will not take full credit but I did a lot of researching for this method! 1. First in the bios if u have 2 ethernet ports and boot roms. TURN THEM ALL ON. Showing or not in os x. 2. Second I don't know if this helped (doubt it)*Asus P5W DH Users only*. hxxp://www.mediafire.com/?dtdjyjyew0u for gigabyte_ds3-4pack.1.2.dmg 3. I believe this is the most important step! Select BootP as your protocol. Set it up, apply it. Even try and browse in safari. You will of course error out. But it makes OS X look at BootP... I believe this makes OS X get all the MAC info. 4. I am running the 3.0 silverlight beta. Again I don't know if this fixed it, but i'm not chancing it. I did the show contents and extracted only the plugin runtime. I believe this is the main problem. The people who had the SMBIOS problem were only half the struggle. You need SMBIOS to get MAC hardware info. The second part and my part was you need to enable it, and have drivers able to get that MAC info. Silverlight with netflix uses MAC info to make a unique (8152) DRM. For the P5W DH users I am on the lower ethernet port with netflix working. Top ethernet is not even showing. I believe long as the drivers let u see it, bios is enabled for boot rom, and u atleast make the network interface see it once. It will work. I busted my @$$ on this one. I helped a fellow user break the dumb PPC silverlight error. Please let me know how this works for you fellow Netflix users. Brad
  11. Graphics card problems

    Solved my issues! Check out my original post for info on it! http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php...amp;pid=1160619
  12. No FireWire after 10.5.7 update

    Check out my display issues on 10.5.7. The damn auto software update ruined mine. Go to apple for the full 10.5.7 combo update (729mb). U can reinstall. Nothing to loose (except if u did it this way already, no go).
  13. This is for 10.5.7 users that were fine in 10.5.6 Mroutrageous. I might be able to answer your Q as well though. 10.5.7 Update users with non working QE (Quartz Extreme) and/or CI (Core Image). I got it to work. 1. Remove all the NV(kush, inject, etc.) extensions out of the extensions folder. 2. Get a copy of EFI studio. 3. Under Display select your card. I did mine "8600 GTS" 4. Then add it to the boot.com.plist 5. Repair permissions etc. ***************************** 6. Download the FULL 10.5.7 combo update from Apple <-- This is where my fix came. I will never use standard software update again! Even if you have 10.5.7 this will let u reinstall over it. NO NEED TO REDO THE OS It's a 729MB download from Apple. ***************************** 7. Reboot (will reboot again on its own) then check in system profiler. * Asus P5W mobo users like me will have to redo the AppleHDA for sound to work again. * Here is my Screen now, thank God!
  14. Graphics card problems

    Well you are in a better spot than me. Yet it sounds some calls for the graphics card are being lost. I'm sure you were ok in 10.5.6 right? I made a forum post to NVinject's site. I found these on the chinese section of the forum: http://redirectingat.com/?id=292X457&u...rivers.zip.html In the contents list is 8xxx series drivers.. Im a bit cautious to try them, not backed up. If u can get them to work let me know if u try.
  15. Graphics card problems

    Sounds like to me its reporting quartz extreme and hard acceleration, yet its not true. Go to your desktop and screen saver preference pane. If it tries to render a screen saver and it un expectedly quits, u know your card is not fully utilized. I don't think NVinject and 10.5.7 get along right right now. Do NOT load with just a plist mention or try apple's extensions alone, the screen turns to a mess. Read below in this thread and u will see I am having problems with my 8600 gts and 10.5.7.
