  2. install works fine, but fails to load AppleACPIPort driver on boot. I'm on a Asus P5k-Deluxe WiFi/AP, Q6600, 4GB RAM, nVidia 9800GTX. Any suggestions?

    9800 GTX working in OSX86

    aqua-mac, Thanks for all your great work, I was able to get my 9800GTX working with QE and CI! Unfortunately, a few reboots after I had it all working, I'm now lacking any QE / CI. Any ideas as to why this might be happening and maybe how to fix it?
  4. So, I'm getting ready to order and build my Hackintosh. So far I've put together a little list of parts: Asus P5K Deluxe WiFi Motherboard http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16813131182 Intel Core 2 Quad Processor Q6600 http://shop3.outpost.com/product/5101696 EVGA 512MB nVidia 8600GT http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16814130292 GeIL 4GB DDR2 800MHz RAM http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16820144216 LITE-ON 20x DVD±R Burner http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16827106228 500GB SATA Hitachi Deskstar I've heard that the Asus boards are very picky about which RAM it likes to use, and I wanted to make sure this RAM I've picked out is compatible. Any Suggestions? Moreover, is this the correct motherboard for me? I'd like Dual Gigabit Ethernet, WiFi, and the possibility of upgrading to a 45nm processor in the future. Is there a more suitable replacement? I plan to do some mild overclocking, so a 450-500 Watt psu will be in order (with possible upgrades later). Thanks for any suggestions!
  5. mmm...would love those instructions. i really hope i can get this to work.

    Kalyway 10.5.2 DVD does not boot

    the one i downloaded was the complete new dvd installer. if you put it in in osx, it says restart to begin installing osx. it has a bootloader on it and the dvd is meant to boot, it just doesnt...
  8. Hi everyone. I've successfully got iATKOS 1.0ir2 running on my Dell D830 with nVidia 140m, but I wanted to give the Kalyway 10.5.2 version a try. Unfortunately, after downloading and burning, upon attempting to boot the dvd, i get the darwin bootloader. I've tried different kernel boot options (vanillakernel and such) but to no avail, it still boots up from mach_kernel. the real issue is what it displays during boot. this is the last few lines of what i see when it hangs: Extension "com.apple.driver.ACPI_SMC_PlatformPlugin" has immediate dependencies on both com.apple.kernel and com.apple.kpi components; use only one style. IOAPIC: Version 0x20 Vectors 0:23 *solid box chararcter* any ideas?
