  2. Is this the right SleepEnabler.kext? (pmVersion=21??) http://www.kexts.com/view/409-sleepenabler...for_10.6.4.html Heres what i did.. 1. Removed SleepEnabler.kext from EXTRAS 2. Ran Kext Utility 3. Installed Update through Software Update 4. Restart Everything went fine, I removed SleepEnabler.kext due to fear of KP. Can you give link for SleepEnabler.kext pmVersion=21
  3. Is this update safe to do through software update, i'm already on 10.6.4 so i dont need the combo.
  4. First of all i would like to start by saying that i am still fairly a newbie and any questions you have, I may or may not be able to answer your questions. I am writing this guide because it worked for me. My Guide is based on the following hardware. Asus P5Q-Pro Motherboard Intel Core2Duo E8400 (3 GHz) Gigabyte Nvidia Geforce 9600GT 1GB Silent iPC OSx86 Universal 10.5.6 1. Preparing to install. (Bios Flashing and Bios Settings) - Download Bios Rom file for P5Q-Pro from here http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php...st&id=42918 - Other P5Q Series ROMs and instructions on flashing the bios are available from http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=136586 - Once the bios is flashed you will need to modify a few settings. - First Change IDE Mode to AHCI, Detect Timeout 0 - Go to the advanced tab, - Under CPU Configuration Disable Intel Speed Step and C1E - Under Onboard Devices change front side audio to AC97 and disable Marvell IDE if you dont need it, if you do then there is a kext for it later. - Under PCiPNP change option to YES - Thats it now we can move on to installing iPC OSx86 Universal 10.5.6 (Goes without saying you should have this downloaded by now.) - Boot from CD-ROM - Select English, then click on Disk Utilities. - Go to the Erase TAB, name your HDD: Macintosh HD and click on Erase. - close disk utility - Click on Next, next until you see CUSTOMISE on your bottom left. - http://######.com/ipcosx86/?page_id=96 is what you should see. - Please use above link as a guide, i am going to tell you exactly what boxes i checked. - iPC OSx86 10.5.6 Base System - Drivers>Video Drivers>Nvidia>Macbook Pro Latest Nvidia Kexts (9xxx Series Support) - Chipset Drivers>Intel ICH10 Sata Support - Fixes and Patches>Shutdown/Restart Fix - DSDT Patches>Patch DSDT - Apple SMBIOS Patch>SMBIOS Resolver - Applications> Efi Studio, OSX86 Tools, KextHelper, CPU-X Thats it do not click on anything else. Unless you know what youre doing. Installing more than one kext for the same feature will more than likely result in an installation faliure. - Install OSX, Skip disk checking (Faster) - Once installed open EFI Studio Choose GT8800 1GB for GFX Strings, and change the name to 9600GT - Restart and you will have full Resolution with QE/CI - http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php...st&id=38399 Sound Drivers - Use KextHelper to install, Restart and you will have sound. - Lan does not work on this model you will need to buy a Realtek Lan Card. - Marvel IDE Drivers http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php...st&id=38401 , once again use kext helper. Thats it you should now have a fully functional 10.5.6 System. Please let me know if i have skipped anything.
  5. Can i use OSX86tools to install EFI8 or Chameleon first then skip to the Mounting ISO Install step.? do i still need to do the post patch after?
