  1. I used the above kext with success. Partially anyway. It could be that my second GC is broken but I don't really know. After a while with three monitors working, the monitor connected to the second GC just freeze up. The strange thing is that the cursor still shows up, but nothing else on the screen changes after it has frozen. Weird. I also get a lot of artifacts; dead pixels, areas of graphical corruption and the such. The dead pixels just stay there, but the areas of corruption settles on a window and stay in the same place in that window unless I "swipe" it off with another window. Also kinda weird. Any ideas? It might be temperature related, but wouldn't that mean that I just get degraded performance with alot of glitches and stuff? It's just so weird that the cursor still shows up without any sign of damage. Asus P5Q Pro Kalyway 10.5.2 2x GF 7900GT - asus Intel C2D E6400 2GB Corsair RAM 800MHz

    I don't know if this solves your problem or helps you in any way, but you should know that when you connect a hard-drive and an optical drive to the same IDE cable you'll slow the HD down severely. Changing one of them to SATA should solve your case. Peace, Mazuho
  3. WLAN working in 10.4.8 but not 10.5.2

    Ok, an update. I found the device ID, reinstalled vista and it turned out the dev id was 4312. This dev id was already included in all the kexts I've been seeing. I tried deleting all the other entries and following this guide: http://forum.insanelymac.com/index.php?showtopic=8522 At first reboot I got the "baseball diamond field" and when I thereafter changed the systemprefs file I got the same result as before; It detects the device, but I find no wireless networks. I tried connecting with the ethernet port, and after defining the IP I got a green light on it, but it still wouldn't connect to internet I am thinking that my wireless card works natively, but that the installation somehow messes with it, seeing that it worked in JaS 10.4.8 flawlessly. When I copied the kext used on JaS's dvd I would get an error message stating that the kext didn't work properly. Is there a compatibility issue with kext between 10.4.8 and 10.5.2? I'm running out of ideas! It's really bugging me out that it worked on the JaS release (and on that one, the SATA drive wasn't found), and I really want 10.5.2. Any suggestions?
  4. Hey! I'm having problems with my integrated wifi device on my HP 6189 laptop. The wifi worked fine with Jas 10.4.8 release, but since I upgraded to 10.5.2 using Kalyways release, the wifi hasn't been working. I tried editing the info.plist from the old IO80211Family.kext on the Jas dvd, but never managed to find the file (I'm a total mac n00b so I don't know how to browse packages). I tried installing the old kext and overwriting the one supplied with the kalyway release, but the os wouldn't take it. I have tried adding what I think is the right device id (I scavenged the internet for any info on my computer) to info.plist but to no avail. Since I know it worked with 10.4.8, the information in the info.plist contained in that package would be gold. Could anyone either post the device id's included in that file? Or maybe a suggestion as to what to try next? Thanks for reading!
  5. YES! First of all, thank you Kalyway. You did it. My HP DV 6189ea worked all the way without any hacking. This was (of course) after a lot of tinkering with other releases. The release I used: Kalyway_10_5_2_DVD_Intel_Amd. Problems I pwned on the way from no boot to mac os x: At first, before the installation program has completely booted, it seems as if the progress freezes, just showing endless "&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&". It will eventually pass this. It took me about 10 minutes. SATA disk should work instantaneously, no problem here, just needed to point it out, since this was the major problem I encountered with all the other releases. I actually laughed out loud when I saw it hangin there on the screen. If I remove the Installation DVD when booting I get "HFS+ partition failure". I can live with having to boot the system with the dvd in the drive. It goes to sleep without complaining, and even more importantly, it wakes up without missing any buses (hehe). I don't remember if I deselected this in the installation options, but my sound does not work natively nor does the wifi, will update the post concerning this. Only the volume buttons work (even though I expected none of the HP buttons to work). Bluetooth works but crashed my K750i. I don't really care though. It deserved it for not being an iPhone. At the installation, I installed the amd packade number one with the mandatory patch. Sorry, can't remember the name. Kalyway, you should be more clear when explaining this section.. it was only when I clicked the second package and read "..you should only install this if the other doesn't work" that I excluded it from the list. Maybe write with the rest of the welcoming text? I excluded the ati and intel graphic dricers. You should do this if you're installing on the same model, otherwise it's wise to find out what GA you're using. For the rest of the items I excluded everything that has anything to do with intel and ati basically. No commands at boot, no commands after installation, just the dvd in the drive and a lot of waiting. If you have any questions or comments, please, post them!
  6. USB to internal drive boot problem.

    Hey thanks for your reply! I actually solved it (partly) in another way which was less demanding. I'll post my solution here in another thread, for all the HP DV61xx users. But I do think your solution would have worked, except that for this laptop, it would be nforce controllers being added. Overall I think the External USB Disk Solution might actually be one alternate route for all the users with SATA problems out there. Far less time and material consuming than adding kexts to and burning a dvd, AND you don't need another computer with Mac OS x on it.
  7. Hey all! First time around.. probably not the last post i make =) Anyway, I've been lurking around these forums a lot the last two weeks and I've solved most of my problems thanks to the search function. But now I've stumbled across a fairly special problem (at least I think so) and I thought it was the time to reveal my presence. If I get this to work, I'll write a tutorial on the matter since I believe I'm not the only one being held back by this. I somehow managed to passively and legally (=P) get the "Mac OS X 10.4.8 [JaS AMD-Intel-SSE2-SSE3 with PPF1].iso" distribution and burnt it to a dvd-r. The computer I am using for this is an HP Pavillon DV6189eu. It's got 2GB RAM, AMD Turion X2, Geforce 7400 GO, 120 SATA HD. So the specs should be allright for Mac OSx. Well, as a matter of fact, I know the specs are allright. More of this later. Anyway, by the data I collected from my lurking on forums like this one, I started out by booting the computer with the dvd in the drive. It took me a couple of hours to even get near the installation program. The only way it would work was if I had my wireless keyboard with integrated touchpad plugged in. I also had to boot up with the -v command. I probably burnt the dvd with a too high speed since my dvd drive sounded like a machine gun when loading the installation program. So when I at last got in to the installation program, my disk wouldn't show up in the disk utility. Fine, I thought, maybe it doesn't support SATA. So I brought fourth my external usb drive. It worked almost like a charm to install on the usb-drive. It was found in disk utility, correctly formatted, and I could proceed with the installation. At first, when booting mac osx, I had a small problem. The screen was flipped 90 degrees and the picture was on 1/3 of the screen's size. Weird! So I rebooted, and this time around, the picture was on 1/6 of the screen size, but correctly rotated. I finished the welcoming process, and after some time trying to get to display properties without a cursor (the function was there, it just wouldn't show the cursor) I finally adjusted the picture by pressing "detect display". It then found the correct native resolution right away. I now had a completely working Mac OSx on my HP DV6189eu. Even sound worked. But it was on my external drive, and the computer is a laptop. Small problem! I thought. I legally acquired Acronis True Image Home and cloned the internal drive from the USB Drive (pm me if you need instructions on how to do this). And this leaves me to where I am now. If I boot with -v the last line it executes before looping is "[HCIController][setupHardware] AFH Is Supported". After that it tells me "Still waiting for root device" over and over again. Sorry for the whole encyclopedia-like post, but I like being clear. I really hope everyone understands my problem! If not, pm me or post here.
