  1. mine's work just fine in snow leo, you'll just need to boot in 32-bit mode.
  2. Ralink RT2860 + Snow leopard HELP

    Are you running in 32-bit mode?
  3. Has anybody gotten shutdown to work? I've tried the openhaltrestart kext from pysystar and still having the same issue
  4. Are you able to shutdown? I've been having shutdown issues with a similar model (hp hdx 16)
  5. New build, loads of issues

    Thanks for the suggestion. I removed a module and all of a sudden, there it was - no more crashes, lock-up's, and freezes. Now I have both modules up and running. I had to increase the ram's voltage in the bios and set the correct timings.
  6. I've recently put together a new rig with the following specs: GIGABYTE GA-EP45C-UD3R Intel Core 2 Quad Q9550 @ 2.83Ghz EVGA GeForce 9800GTX 4gbs mushkin ddr3 ram 2 640gb Western Digigal hdd's 20x Sony DVD+/-R SATA 750watt Corsair PSU This rig has given rise to problem after problem. The entire system hard-locks randomly (but it seems to do it like 100% of the time when doing large data transfers) and the only option is to manually power down or reboot. Browsers crash very frequently and randomly (especially safari). I don't know if this has anything to do with the problems mentioned above, but about a week ago after putting it together, my usb mouse and keyboard would not be usable until 5 minutes after booting any o/s. Also, the computer would not shut down and osx would report some usb errors. These errors were fixed by unplugging my card reader, but other issues still persist. I have ubuntu on my second hdd, and it's been having the same issues, so I don't think it could be the o/s or the hdd. Earlier today, I ran a memtest for about 9 hours and all tests passed. Does anyone have any ideas on what I could do? Thanks
  7. I can't get the 10.5.6 retail to boot. It gives me these errors: BSD root: disk2s3, major 14, minor 12 Syncing disks... Killing all processes continuing done Mach reboot I've tried with -x and have the same problem. Anyone have any ideas on what I can do? EDIT: NVM that top part, was faulty dvd. Now have it up and running with iPC. What are the advantages of running retail over other distros?
  8. Update: With iDeneb, I can rename a partition when I erase it as fat32, but when I try to erase a partition as hfs+, it goes back to its original label and disk utility says it's a fat32 partition. Update 2: Finally got disk utility to format it. I had to mark it as bootable with gparted. New problem though: black screen when booting up after installing nvdarwin 1.2.5 Update 3: Update 3: BLACK SCREEN ISSUE SOLVED!!! For those of you having issues with the black screen, do the following: remove all injectors and all efi strings and download the nvidia kexts from here. Then open a text editor and copy and paste this into it: <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd"> <plist version="1.0"> <dict> <key>PciRoot(0x0)/Pci(0x1,0x0)/Pci(0x0,0x0)</key> <dict> <key>@0,AAPL,boot-display</key> <data> </data> <key>@0,built-in</key> <data> </data> <key>@0,compatible</key> <string>NVDA,NVMac</string> <key>@0,device_type</key> <string>display</string> <key>@0,name</key> <string>NVDA,Display-A</string> <key>@0,use-backlight-blanking</key> <data> </data> <key>@1,can-hot-plug</key> <data> </data> <key>@1,compatible</key> <string>NVDA,NVMac</string> <key>@1,device_type</key> <string>display</string> <key>@1,name</key> <string>NVDA,Display-B</string> <key>NVCAP</key> <data> 0400000000000d00400000000000000700000000 </data> <key>VRAM,totalsize</key> <data> 0x20000000 </data> <key>device_type</key> <string>NVDA,parent</string> <key>model</key> <string>NVIDIA GeForce 9600 GT</string> <key>rom-revision</key> <string>test</string> </dict> </dict> </plist> . Then call it whatever you want with a .plist extension. After that, use osx86 to convert that to hexadecimal and add it to apple.boot.plist. Install the drivers, repair permissions, clear the extensions cache, and reboot.
  9. I've got a partition problem when trying to install on an hdx 16. I keep selecting parittion disk0s3 to be erased and formatted as osx extended (jouraled), but after telling it to erase, it reloads and its format nor label changes. Anyone have any ideas? I've tried both leo4all and iPc. One thing though: When I reboot into linux, gparted picks up its label and partition type. However, when I try the install osx86 and use disk utility , it's picked up as a linux partition and it won't give me that partition as an option and im back in the same mess where disk utility reloads but changes nothing
  10. NVIDIA 9 Series Driver Installer v2

    Thank you so much! I finally got my 9600gt up and running.
  11. 10.5.6 problems at boot

    Alright, problem solved. Apparently the nForceATA kext and forcedeth kexts didn't work so well together. Either use the nForce Lan driver or select no network driver and you should be able to boot up without the buffer underrun error.
  12. GeForce 9600 GT natively supported in Mac OS X 10.5.6

    Okay, just to clear things up: when I install ipc 10.5.6, do I select no video kexts and then add an efi string for my 9600gt, or choose to install the latest macbook pro kexts?
  13. 10.5.6 problems at boot

    Similar specs and same problem here. Anyone have a solution for it?
