    System: Asus P8Z68 Deluxe<br />CPU: Intel Core i7 2600k<br />Graphics: NVIDIA XFX 560ti <br />HD1: Crucial M4 128GB SSD<br />HD2: 2TB WD Caviar Black Sata 2
  1. I've come across an issue that is driving me crazy. I had my pc setup to dual boot between osx/win7 using chimera. I would go about the process in this order: Use [url=&quot;http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/&quot;]#####[/url] to boot into osx installation. In disk util i would partition the disk into 3 partitions (1. osx hfs journaled, 2. win7 fat32, 3. osx backup hfs journaled). I would then exit the installer, reboot with the win 7 cd. In the win 7 installer, I would choose the fat32 partition i created in osx's disk utility and install win 7. After I was done setting up win 7, I would reboot the pc with [url=&quot;http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/&quot;]#####[/url] and go ahead with the osx installation following this guide http://tonymacx86.com/viewtopic.php?f=168&t=26252. Once i was complete, I had the option of booting into win 7 or osx via chimera. Well yesterday, I had finished setting up win7 and installed osx. But once I was done my win 7 partition no longer appeared in chimera. I booted into osx, checked diskutil and the partition which contains win 7 was greyed out and labeled as disk0s3. It said not mounted under it's status. I rebooted with the win 7 cd and went to repair the installation and it was able to find the win 7 partition no problem but wasn't able to repair anything. I decided to start from scratch so I threw the [url=&quot;http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/&quot;]#####[/url] cd back into so I could redo the partitioning through disk util. Once I did that I loaded up the win7 installation and I see the fat 32 partition I created but i can NO LONGER choose it for win 7 installation. It says it cannot be installed on a GPT disk. This is on a 128 Crucial M4 SSD. I am really hoping someone this did not mess up my SSD. Does anyone have any info that could point me in the right direction?
  2. Asus 1201N Installation and support

    I just did a new reformat on my 1201n using the guide and am loving the fact that everything is working. I started looking through the thread again and am a bit confused from some of the latest posts. So is sleep in fact working? I tried going back to post 295 to download sleepwatch but the site seems to be down. Since i'm not the best at this, how would I go about getting sleep/wake working without loosing my audio/ethernet functionality?
  3. I hate to bump this again but i'm really just looking for help on a solution for the WiFI issue. I can live with the rest.

    I love you!!! I haven't seen it mentioned lately, does anyone still have time that they boot and keyboard/mouse still dont' work? It still happens to me randomly but a reboot fixes it.

    I just tested out the VGA port and looks like it works. When I clicked on mirror displays thought the netbook screen went grey, you could still see the mouse cursor though. The monitor became the main display.

    Not to be an ass but did you even read the first post?

    Well, of course the camera is no where to be found, but I did follow the link in the guide. They are almost identical in the procedure. The Only difference really that instead of having to remove the system board to get to the Wifi Module, its is actully right in front of you once you take off the top chassis. On the bottom right you will see a tape holding a wide cable in place. If you lift that tape and disconnect the cable, the wifi module is right there. it's held in by 1 screw. I replaced it with the Dell card and I connected the wire that was connected to the old wifi module on the right side of the Dell card where the BLACK arrow is pointing. Of course I tried and broke the warrenty sticker. Oh well I also got to finally listen to the audio at a decent level, now I understand by what you guys meant by all the static. Wow.

    Not a problem. Like i've stated i'm a complete newbie to this. Been a Windows guy for over 15 years so it's a new world for me. I've tried hackintosh a few times before and failed miserably. This, the old thread and your guide have been perfect in steering me in the right direction and I know will def help others. As for the guide, possibly adding link to a way to disassemble it to install a compatible wifi card might not be a bad idea. I remember seeing someone said they followed the instructions for an earlier model. I hope to take on this task this weekend. If I can find my digital camera (blames the wife) I'll take pics of the disassembly. Oh as for the shutdown, i tried it again 3 times. I went to shutdown and let it sit there for 10 mins. Never went off. Not a big deal though.

    Yep, actually I just finished installing the Tea kernel and saw the volume control so I assumed it installed right. I installed the VoodooHDA preference pane. It asked me if I wanted to replace the existing one. Replied yes and changed the settings as per the guide. Played an mp3 and it plays fine. Have to keep the volume rather low since I'm at work so it sounded fine but once I get out of here i'll raise it to see how it really sounds. Other than that everything went smooth as per the guide.

    I know this is a very newbie question and i'm sorry, but how do you install a kext with Kext Utility? I took the voodoo kext provided in your guide and put it in the system/library/extensions and the removed the applehda. When I ran kext utility it said that Voodoo kext was not installed correctly and shorty after I got a KP. I rebooted the pc and it loaded Mac OSX fine but I don't think it installed the kext. Should I of put the kext in the extra's directory?

    OK just finished reinstalling with the new files following the guide. Definelty went smoother. I am still getting a Verbose boot up/shutdown. Restart worked. Sleep still didn't work for me. And shutdown still doesn't work. Other than that, everything else is working and running 10.6.2

    1201snow: Since you are installing windows 7 from the recovery disk, this will install the 32bit version of Win 7 correct?

    At work at the moment, so depending on how busy I am i'll try it soon or once I get home.

    I was following the other post and posted about the UUID errors i had received. Instead of using the Sudo commands I used kext utility and it worked. I was able to update to 10.6.2. Shutdown seems to work. Restart/sleep still seem not to. The one thing that has changed now is that when I start up i get EBIOS read error: Error 0xff Block 0x0 Sectors 0 4 times, then it shows me the boot messages. Then on shutdown it shows me shutdown messages also. Is this normal? If it is maybe you can add that to your guide just so some people don't get confused thinking something is wrong. And of course, if it is wrong then where did i go wrong? I still occasionally boot up without keyboard/touch pad working but I just do a reboot and it works again. I got my wifi card in the mail yesterday so I'm gonna install it this weekend. Then after that, my next step is trying to figure out how to dual boot this thing.

    I wanted to say thank you for the guide. It's a great help for us newbies to the mac world. I am following it so that I can update to 10.6.2. I came across something that I bet i prolly did something wrong. but in the guide you say: For this step, I have simply copied amf5's instructions from the thread. DO NOT reboot until you have updated your system to 10.6.2: For those of you not being able to use the trackpad/keyboard after a reboot, I've attached my Extra folder and a script I wrote that'll automate a few commands that should help you be able to use them again. This will only work if you have an /Extra/Extensions folder on your OS X partition. It will not work if you boot from an EFI partition. Instructions: 1. For simplicity, delete your existing /Extra folder (the whole thing) and replace it with the one I included in the zip file. 2. Open Terminal and cd to the directory where you extracted the zip file. 3. Enter chmod +x updatext and then sudo mv updatext /usr/bin/ 4. Finally, you should be able to just type in "updatext" in Terminal. Your computer should automatically reboot. When I get to the 2nd part of step 3 i get the following : _cfgethostuuidstring unable to determine uuid And after I run updatext, it goes into a KP on reboot. I replaced the Extra's directory on my hard drive with the one in the zip file. And Is there something I did wrong?
