  1. Hello! I'm running a Sony Vaio VGN-AR790U/B and I'm trying to install OSX 10.8 using a USB stick, but I keep getting an error like: Memory allocation error! Addr=0xdeadbeef, Size=0x0, File=ati.c," and "This is a non recoverable error! System HALTED!!! " I've tried this with ###### and MyHack methods, each of which produce this error. What should I do?
  2. They're different sizes and usually show up seperately and I've wiped them individually in OSX Journaled formatting, so could it still be raid?
  3. I am using a Sony Vaio VGN-AR790UB. http://store.sony.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/ProductDisplay?catalogId=10551&storeId=10151&langId=-1&partNumber=VGNAR790U/B#specifications So I can boot into the installer, no problem, but I get stuck because the installer doesn't detect any of my hard drives. Every other osx86 installer I've tried has recognized my hard drives except this one. I've read around that sometimes you have to mess with the BIOS sata settings, but my vaio has locked down everything in the BIOS so that's not happening. What should I do? My error screen: The same thing in Disk Utility: What should I do now?
  4. Hello! I have Lion on my Sony Vaio VGN-AR790U/B and have no problems booting it up, but once that happens, I'm in a bare-bones due to my lack of OR incorrect kexts. I have no resolution-change options even if I try to force them on boot, and certain standard applications like chess or calculator fail to boot or kill finder which needs to then restart. I'm told this is all a kext-based issue, so what should I uninstall to fix this? I've attached System Info's Driver and Kext lists below. www.sweebez.com/Devices.png www.sweebez.com/Kexts.png THANK YOU in advance!!
  5. Stuck on 1024x768 on Lion (Nvidia 8600M GT)

    My computer would not boot. I would see only a black screen. I reinstall was required. Any new ideas?

    This did not work, and I needed to format and reinstall lion. Any other ideas?
