    Computers...OS's... How & Why they work.... and dont !<br />Linux ~ Arch and Debian<br />Mac OS X ~ Newer to me, Like it though.<br />M$ ~ Kinda bland, not much flavor to it!
  1. For anyone wondering, you can use the combo updates to update your computer to 10.6.8, or download them from software update also, if youre running this hardware and followed this guide. sorry about the late late reply. Possibly going to get Lion Installed on this hardware sometime soon.
  2. Recently I upgraded to a newer MacBook Pro unibody, So I am selling my white macbook mid 2007 model, for $500.00 usd. Heres a Brief rundown of the specs: MacBook-MB061LL/A 2.0Ghz Core2Duo Processor 4GB 667Mhz Ram 320GB & 250GB Internal Hard drives. I Have an optibay type hard drive caddy in place of the optical drive. The optical drive will be included with the sale, but you would need to buy an external case for it or put it back into macbook in order to use it. I am including it though, because it is the original one, and still works well. It is only the cdrw/dvd rom model though, so you wont be able to burn any dvds with it. Originally when i bought my macbook, it had an 80gb hard drive, 1gb of ram and had OS X Leopard on it. It now has Snow leopard on it and has all the security updates from apple, and also the upgraded hardware i mentioned above. Also not listed above, but included in the sale is the power adapter of course, and also a white vinyl skin to cover the lid of macbook if you wish to. I have never had it on there though, and finally a very nice black leather case that fits on macbook. I do not have any pictures of macbook/macbook with case on right now, but i will be taking some tomorrow, so you will be able to pm or aim me to see them. If anyone is interested in purchasing, you can pm me on here, or catch me on aim ( look at post or user profile to see my screen name), and we can then discuss further, or if you would just like to see some pictures before thinking about purchasing. I work days, so i wont be replying to pm's or aim until 4 pm eastern standard time and later. Thanks for looking and considering. -crass
  3. @ PrinceOD: Another method you could try(if you havent already, is the [url=&quot;http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/&quot;]#####[/url] + [url=&quot;http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/&quot;]#####[/url], from the tonymacx86 blog. Here is the link: [url=&quot;http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/&quot;]#####[/url]+[url=&quot;http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/&quot;]#####[/url] I tried only the UserDSDT method part of that guide, and had success, getting a stable running boot on my P5K Deluxe/Wifi-AP. Only thing is though, from what i read and if im understanding it right, it is a 32bit install. Im going for vanilla 64 (or as close as i can get). Now once i had the [url=&quot;http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/&quot;]#####[/url] + [url=&quot;http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/&quot;]#####[/url] guide finished, and running on my desktop, I did reboot, and booted also very successfully into 64 bit mode. The UserDSDT part of that install requires you to have your own dsdt.aml (it says editied, but i did it with a clean dsdt.aml and patched it later, and then ran [url=&quot;http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/&quot;]#####[/url] again) on the desktop. I did not try the [url=&quot;http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/&quot;]#####[/url] (i think) part of that guide, possibly on sunday i may try. It is a very easy guide to follow, so maybe you could take a look at it, and possibly get your black pearl running stable that way. Also, if you do get success that you are happy with, there is a list, somewhere on the blog i linked you to, that you can go and put info about your system, like a list of boards and some hardware that is confirmed to work with [url=&quot;http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/&quot;]#####[/url], so maybe post your board there also, if you succeed. Also, please do post back in this Guide/thread, as i am curious, to see if your board gets running snow leopard as well. I almost bought one of those boards, for a secondary system, but i settled on an evga board instead. Good Luck with Snow friend....
  4. Heres the link for the kexts you asked about. What i did, was compiled my dsdt, so that i had 0 errors,0 warnings,0 remarks, and 46 optimizations. So starting with a clean dsdt.aml, i then added the dtgp method, usb and hdef sound fixes from xavinoizs' dsdt.aml, used his two original kexts (AD200b and fakesmc) and also the 2 kexts for my psk keyboard to work. Following xavi guide, my p5k hack would not restart after waking from sleep. osxrestart.kext fixed that for me. P5KDeluxeWIFI PS2_HDA The VoodooHDA.kext that is in with the ps2 kexts, is what i use when i run a system with more kexts, and no dsdt edits. That method is very stable also, at least for me. You wont need to use the voodoo kext if you apply the sound fix for your dsdt and use AD2000b.kext. I have no clue on the ram and cpu info, I am working on that myself currently. If you figure it out, please post back and let us know. Im think you can do that with the dsdt, but i thought i read somewhere that another approach is to edit something dealing with the fakesmc.kext. I am not sure on this though. Your card should work with chameleon, afaik, i dont do anything for my card (evga gtx 260) except use graphics enabler= yes in my com.apple.Boot.plist , and im happy with the results. im pretty sure your 8800 would work. As for what applies to your board, the initial install, any of your hardware that is the same as p5k deluxe wifi/ap then you could use the same kexts. Other than that, im guessing you will be able to get fully updated to 10.6.4 also, if you have a successful boot after install. Good luck with retail install. Like i said to Macandcheese, im still working on the cpu/ram info. And i dont think any of us here will be throwing any rocks, ( not me anyways).
  5. Not really sure what i did, but i had to put IONetworkingFamily.kext back in E/E. without it my internet was having issues. So that kext and AHCIPortInjector.kext, IOAHCIBlockStorageInjector.kext, and OSXRestart.kext. AHCI and IOAHCI kexts kept my ich9R going, i applied the usb and audio fixes from your dsdt, but not the sata, and OSXRestart.kext is what lets me restart successfully after waking from sleep. Keeping the ich9r seems to me to keep performance a little more than the esb2 (not by a lot, but still some),(faster when copying files/reading writing, repairing permissions), so im going to try that for a while. I have 5 HDD's in my box, 1 for win7/Linux, 1 for OS X, 1 Media, and the other 2 are experimental/temp storage. All sata + sata DVDRW and no IDE. I am going to try to do the install over again, and see if i get the exact same results, hopefully by this weekend. Ill post back with the results when i get them. Guide coming after successful replication of install.
  6. @xavinoiz : Just a quick update ( I had a few hours to do some work on my retail install). Currently I have my system running on 10.6.4 with all updates (for software and security) 1: sleep working, waking from sleep if i move usb mouse/hit power button 2: Reset works after waking from sleep 3: ich10 is seen as ich9R again (even though using the ich10 fix doesnt affect system performance, i just wanted to see if i could get it to show up correctly in sys profiler) 4: Usb is built in, not expansion slot other than that everything else works 64bit except wireless(32 only). I did not test shutdown, but i will when i get some time in a few days. I had a previous fix in another dsdt.aml that i was using before, so i may need to apply that if shutdown does not work. Also, I am going to try and write and understandable how to, for this method in case anyone else wants to try it. Some things i would still like to see fixed, cpu and ram info in system profiler, and possibly using less kexts. I have 8 in E/E and NONE in S/L/E. 2 or the kexts in E/E are for ps2 keyboard, your two from P5K DL extra folder in your download for install, and four others. Thats about it for now.
  7. @ Macandcheese : I have some answers to a few of your questions. About editing kexts, what i have always done and has worked for me, was if i deleted a kext from /System/Library/Extensions/ , is i would open a terminal and run these commands : sudo chown -R root:wheel /System/Library/Extensions/* sudo chmod -R 755 /System/Library/Extensions/* And then i would open disk utility and repair permissions for the system hard drive. Also as an answer to your other question about removing VoodooHDA.kext, you can use finder to go to S/L/E/ , and send VoodooHDA.kext to the trash and then run the 2 commands in terminal from above. then repair permissions. Another command you could run after those two and repair permissions, is : sudo touch /Volumes/system_hard_drive_name/System/Library/Extensions For rebuilding the Extensions.mkext on a vanilla install, (when Extensions.mkext is in your Extra folder, you go to your Extra/Extensions/ folder, Drag and drop or copy past what kexts you want to add, and whatever kexts you want to remove, just send them to the trash. When you have what kexts you want in your Extra/Extensions/ folder, open MKextTool and then highlight all the kexts from Extra/Extensions/ and drag and drop them in MKextTool , select where you want to build the new Extensions.mkext (which is your Extra folder with a vanilla install) then click build, wait for it to finish, and then open your terminal and run these commands : sudo chown -R root:wheel /Volumes/name_of_system_hard_drive/Extra/* sudo chmod -R 755 /Volumes/name_of_system_hard_drive/Extra/* and then use disk utility to repair permissions. The /Volumes/name_of_system_hard_drive is not necessary, but i always type it, just in case i happened to cd to a different hard drive in my computer. Also i forgot to mention, that if you would want to install the ad2000b.kext you could just drag and drop/copy paste it into your Extra/Extensions folder and then run the two commands above (sudo chown and sudo chmod for Extra folder, not the chown and chmod commands for S/L/E/) and then repair permissions. If you want to see what all modified kexts are installed on your iatkos s3 v2 install, you would need to use some app to unhide files (ShowAllFiles is one that works and there are a few others) and then look for your Extra folder on your iatkos drive. Extra folder is on the root of your drive. I believe the extra folder is hidden on the iatkos distro you said you were running. VoodooHDA.kext is in S/L/E/ and possibly a few other kexts are also, depending on what all you checked during iatkos install. As far as most reliable way to backup hackintosh install, i have no idea, im still working that one out. Hope i answered some of those questions in a way that was not too random, and was understandable.
  8. @ xavinoiz: Ok, thanks for explaining that. when you look at my dsdt.aml , you will see that the dtgp method is not there. I went in and edited my dsdt in a few places so that it would compile without errors or warnings. the first time i ran dsdt patcher for my p5k deluxe, it returned 0 errors, 8 warnings, 22 comments, and 46 optimizations. I changed a few things by comparing my dsdt to one for another p5k, either premium or p5ke, and when i saved it and applied it, i rebooted and ran dsdt patcher again, and i received 0 errors/warnings/comments and 46 optimizations. getting it to compile without errors or anything else made a big change for how my system ran. I am just hoping i am on the right track, with what i have done to it so far.
  9. Just stopped by to see if anything new was posted, and i see it was. Im going to be away from my computer for a little bit, so i thought i would post a link to my dsdt.aml, so you could compare it to yours. compiled and applied it with 0 errors, 0 warnings, 0 comments & 46 optimizations. I looked at yours and mine side by side, and noticed a few differences, in the sections for sata, hdef, usb, and a few other places. i have read a little about it, but im not sure i understand what applying the DTGP.asl method does for the dsdt. can you explain it any, or anyone explain it for that matter? thanks again for the guide, and hope to keep working on it, and improving the process for getting vanilla snow leopard going on our motherboard model. heres the link for my P5K Deluxe/Wifi-AP dsdt.aml http://www.mediafire.com/?wes3b17iw4lukih Not sure if you can click on it or if you have to copy and paste. but there it is. Let me know what you come up with.
  10. Nice work on the guide. I have snow leopard running on my p5k deluxe wifi ap, and i had my own dsdt.aml before you had this guide posted. It worked great for my system, except for sleep would not work. with my dsdt file my ich9 were recognized as just that, ich9, and worked good, recognized as internal drives with no performance decrease. Heres a list of my system: Motherboard: Asus P5K Deluxe/Wifi-AP Processor: Core 2 Quad Q8400 Ram: 2 x 2GB G.Skill 1066 DDR2 (running at 800mhz though) Graphics card: EVGA GTX 260 896MB (65nm model) HDD's: Seagate 120GB,500GB & 1.5TB~Western Digital 160GB 2.5"(laptop HDD)~Samsung spinpoint 320GB (HDD's are all SATA) DVD Rom:LG Supermulti DVDRW (also SATA) Power Supply: OCZ 700W 80Plus Certified 2x6Pin,1x6+2(8Pin), 4Pin or 8Pin 12v Using your install method, my processor shows as Intel Xeon, not Q8400, and my ram shows up running as 667mhz. I believe some of this info relates to the smbios.plist file. I have a few questions, and they are: In the downloads you provided, i noticed you didnt have an smbios.plist file at all, why? How did you get sleep working? by using a hack or fix for the dsdt.aml file? if so could you post a link or send me a pm. How did you update from 10.6 retail install to 10.6.4. When i try to use the downloaded combo update, it wont let me, and tells me I have to be running 10.6.3 first. did you get to 10.6.4 through software update? If you want i can post a link for my dsdt.aml if you want to compare it to yours, to see whats different. Also, Im sure ill think of other questions after i post this, so maybe we can work together on getting snow leopard running better with our model motherboards. Again, very nice guide! Also, if you have any questions, you can pm me, post them, or im me on aim. crass7885
  11. Toshiba A205-S5831 Laptop.

    I got os x running on this laptop using leo4all v2. Sound, and wireless did not work after install. I got sound working following this tutorial. http://forum.insanelymac.com/index.php?showtopic=18642 . sound works but the mic and headphone jack dont. Im still working on those and the wireless. then vendor and device id i had to change to ven: 10EC dev: 0268 . Yours should be the same. but i would check to be sure.
