  1. Nforce 790i Motherboard

    Thx for the info. I just ordered me a XFX 780I mobo to replace my MSI P35 Neo and noticed my mac partition quite. Didnt think of the chipset at the time lol. Anyways, by what I read about 10.6 and everything, it supports ICH10 natively, hence why it detected drives and bridge with no problem at all
  2. Broadcom 4315 Not Working

    Ok, so I get Snow Leopard installed on my Acer Aspire One D250. Got most of it working except a few things which I don't think will work. But besides that, been trying to get the wireless card to work for the last day and to no avail, not working. As the title says, its the 4315 model, mini-pci. I know I can always get a PCI-e one in case I can't get it working as the PCI-E port on the new Acer isn't used. Anyways, I've tryed the drivers as well as putting in the ID's myself. Still not working. Here's a copy of what is being showed in the System Profiler: ExpressCard: Type: Other Network Controller Driver Installed: No Bus: PCI Vendor ID: 0x14e4 Device ID: 0x4315 Subsystem Vendor ID: 0x105b Subsystem ID: 0xe01b Revision ID: 0x0001 Link Width: x1 Link Speed: 2.5 GT/s Ok, by what it shows up there, it should work, Right? Wrong is what I'm guessing. In the drivers, it shows the Subsystem Vendor ID as 0x106b, but mine is 0x105b, why is that? Also, it shows the Subsystem ID as 0xe04e, but mine is 0xe01b, why is THAT? I'm thinking it's because of the way the wireless card is in the netbook. Like I said, my PCI-E slot is still open, meaning the card is either built into the mobo or there's a mini-PCI slot inside the laptop that's not accessible without popping the case open and looking. So, by what I've posted, does anyone have any suggestions as to what I can do to try and get this working or to point me in another direction that can help? P.S. A few days ago, I saw a modified broadcom driver that was for a Acer D150, that I believe was for this same problem. But now, can't seem to find it around. Anyone know of this driver?

  4. PC_EFI v9 Chameleon Editon Dualbooting

    This should be very helpful to you. Shows you how-to dual boot osX86 and XP. The main difference is that it's using the Kalyway 10.5.2 install disk instead of Retail. EDIT 3/31/09 9:34 CST Time* By what I was reading in the Retail DVD Install Thread I posted below, if your going to go that way, I don't know if my way will work, its completely different from that. If it doesn't and you want to do it my way, you will have to download the Kalyway 10.5.2 DVD off of the Bay. http://wiki.osx86project.org/wiki/index.ph...DualBoot_10.5.2 It's the guide I followed when installing osX86, but I have a Vista install instead of XP. Got it installed and everything, but because my chipset on my board's IDE (msi p35 neo-f, crappy ass board for osX86 lol), it would boot up and show the "No HDD" icon, or in -v, the dreaded "Still Waiting for Root Device," which both are 2 in the same :mellow: . Which what I'm getting to is I had to switch to a SATA HDD. Ok, done with my preaching there . Also, here is another guide, if you haven't looked at it already: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=86167 And as for the EFI, this worked perfectly for me, even after updating to 10.5.5. It's version 8. www.mediafire.com/?ehee45snyhy Extract these files to a jumpdrive formatted as fat32. To make it easy on yourself, rename the jumpdrive to 123. And to install it, when booting into the install DVD, don't know if its the same for both modded and Retail, but like what needs to be done, format your partition to Mac Extended (Journaled) or whatever in Disk Utility. After that close out and open up terminal. In terminal, type these commands: 1. cd /Volumes/123/pc_efi_v80 2. ./startupfiletool /dev/rdiskXsY ./boot_v8 (rdiskXsY being your HFS+ partition, for example, mines rdisk0s1) 3. dd if=./guid/boot1h if=/dev/rdiskXsY bs=512 count=1 Then exit out of terminal and install. Hopefully, it will work. I have never used the Retail DVD, so I don't know what has to be done differently. And if it does work, hopefully you don't get HFS+ Partition Error when booting up. If you do, post here and I or someone else will get back to you on how to fix it. There are so many different ways. CHEERS MATE!! GOOD LUCK! :mellow:
  5. I know this is my first post, but I plan on staying here for a long time. Helped me greatly to get this installed with Kalyway when I was having so much problems and could never get it installed Well, I got it installed and surprisingly, everything works, even sound . All I had to add in during install is Video Drivers. Anyways, after I get it installed and everything and go to System Profiler, it quits Unexpectedly and will not load up. I've tried all kernels and still no go on the System Profiler. I searched around for this error and it was said to be fixed back in like 10.4.2 update Anyways, if someone could help, I would be really grateful, would like to have that to make sure everything shows up in there right or pretty close to it. My system specs are as follows. I will add them to my sig when I get the chance or remember to do it lol Mobo: MSI P35 Neo-F CPU: Core 2 Duo E7200 @ 2.53GHz Memory: 2 gig Corsair XPS HDD: Seagate 200g Sata Video Card: Nvidia 8500GT 1gb Edition And the kernel I'm using atm is Vanilla w/ APPLESMBIOS Nvm, I got it going know. For some reason, I had to go into the "Get Info" and check "Run using Rosetta." To tell the truth, I have no idea what that is (thinking its something like running a program as XP in Vista? Making it look like its running on a older version of the OS?) After that, it loads up fine and by what I can tell, I really don't have everything running good lol Guess ill get the kexts for the things that are missing now lol
