  1. Hi, I'm having a strange problem compiling a custom dsdt. I've been using fassl's patcher to compile a dsdt.dsl file. But when I check it out, my network interfaces (ie pop0, pop1, pop2 etc) aren't showing up. What's really weird is that when I compile a dsdt.aml with dsdtse, the interfaces DO show up in that program's editor, but as soon as I save the dsdt.dsl file, and open it in text edit, the interfaces are gone. I really need to get them in the dsdt cause I have to patch them to display as builtin for the editing software I use. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
  2. Thanks so much for your help! Solved the issue by generating a custom dsdt and adding some code so that my network interfaces would register as "builtin" on boot, allowing media composer to recognize it. For anyone with a similar issue, google "how to set the network adapter to en0 with dsdt" and look at the project osx page for a detailed guide. Thanks again!
  3. Hi All, Thanks for posting all of this info. I haven't gotten this working yet. I found the original post on another site, but after compiling the modified dsdt my networking plist still says builtin <false>, and my networking hardware isnt displaying any differently. Any help would be greatly appreciated. EDIT: Now working, deleted networking.plist and rebooted. Thanks again to everyone on this thread!
  4. Avid Media Composer running on Hackintosh

    hey guys, I know this is an old thread, but did any of you try activating media composer using software activation on a hackintosh? I don't have a dongle with my version, and it's not letting me activate. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
  5. Hi, Thanks for the fast reply. I'm using a hidden efi partition. In extra/extensions, I have AHCIportinjector, applertc, disabler, ioahciblockstorageinjector, nullcpupowermanagement, openhaltrestart, voodhda, fakesmc and platformuuid. In extra I also have a custom compiled dsdt.aml and an smbios.plist. I'm using the following hardware asus p6t deluxe v2 gtx 260 (with efi strings) sata hd with ahci enabled wusb600n linksys wifi card. Also using chameleon rc3, with pcefi 10.3 boot file. I've added the same custom uuid to the platformuuid kext and my smbios file, and that uuid shows up in system profiler. I believe the issue is involving the mac addresses of my networking hardware. I was told that avid uses them to generate a custom machine id for activating their software, and I'm wondering if something on my system is autogenerating mac addresses for my wifi and ethernet hardware which is preventing that. I also believe the software uses whatever the lowest bsd activated interface is (ie en0 or en1). For some reason, the first interface I use (my wifi) is en2. Is there a way to rename the bsd interfaces, and/or inject a custom mac address into those interfaces?
  6. I recently installed SL to my asus p6t Deluxe V2 with some success using a sata to usb adapter. However, the one issue I'm having is that Avid media composer cannot activate on my computer. I called their tech support, and was told that the software uses my networking card's mac address to activate, and that it could not get that information. I'm guessing I need to specify my mac address for one of my network cards, but I've tried modifying my smbios file without success. Any ideas?
  7. Thanks all for the helpful info. Two questions though. First, does anyone see any reason why a usb to sata adapter would work any less well than an enclosure? (it's cheaper cause I don't have an enclosure at the moment, and my dvd drive died on my hackintosh). Second question is for those experiencing sata slowdowns with multiple drives. Is the problem that you just can't access the non-snow leopard drives at reasonable speed, or does the whole system crawl to a halt? I have a working dual boot setup with leopard and vista and I want to make sure I can have something similar with snow. Thanks!
  8. Hi again, For those dealing with "still waiting for root device" issues, the problem is to do with your harddrive priority ordering. What solved the issue for me was plugging my sata hd into the #1 sata port. I also removed some connecters to esata ports, but I doubt that was the actual solution. On a different note, I was wondering if someone could walk me through the audio fix noob style. I'm really interested in using solution #1, but I can't quite comprehend the writer's english (no offense meant). I've added the hdaenabler kext and the ad1988bhdafix kext to system/library/extensions, but he also mentions putting them in mkext format, and I don't understand how to do that, and whether the resulting file should go in extras or in system/library. Anyone willing to help me out? Thanks in advance (and thanks to everyone on this thread for the helpful guides and advice)
  9. Hi, Anyone have any ideas regarding the "still waiting for root device" error? I too am getting this after installing the 10.5.6 updater. I've had this issue in the past, but I think then it was due to not having a sata dvd drive, which I now have (besides which that was an install issue). Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance... Edit: Just wanted to say that I have actually read the many posts on this error, and I'm pretty sure this isn't the usual thing. I was able to boot from the slimdisk bootiso before installing 10.5.6, so it was clearly something to do with the update and not an incompatability with my system. The only thing I changed from Dan Hammans guide was I didn't patch my lan before installing the combo update.
  10. Hey Dummy15, I'm no expert, but just a thought, what are you using for graphics? Trying to think of what you'd have on your system hardware wise that might stop the shutdown, and I know that it can adversly affect sleep as well. Did you check console for error messages?
  11. Thanks for the response. Good luck with getting windows 7 to show up. Would you mind terribly posting back when you try chameleon 2? Also off topic but how is windows 7?
  12. Glad to hear things are working for you. Just curious, are you using chameleon 2 to avoid the bus/speed slowdown issue that people are having? Also, is sleep working ok for you? Sorry to ask off topic questions but its really hard to find information on the non-deluxe board. Incidentally, do you know what the major differences are between the two boards? Thanks!
  13. Hi, Quick question for anyone following this guide for the asus p6t DELUXE. I'm about to purchase new hardware, and I was wondering whether sleep/shutdown/restart is working normally on this board after the 10.5.7 update? Sorry if this has already been answered but I couldn't find it anywere. Also considering purchasing the GA-EX58-ud5, but my loyalty to asus has me undecided. Thanks in advance for any advice
  14. Hi Wolfienuke, Just wanted to say thanks SO much for this post. I've been looking (admittedly rather half heartedly) through various threads for weeks looking for some simple information on what hardware and chipsets are faring best in the i7/hackintosh world. Unfortunately the beautiful new osx86 database doesn't have any info on i7... Anyway, Thanks much!
