  1. Hi dmo. I'm glad to see you posting here your process. Your are right, you need a lot of patient. I'm here son June 4th of 2008. I started with Leopard Hackintosh. I tried iDevneb, iATKOS and finally get success with Kalyway, long time ago. I was working wih this OSX86 for two years and now, i tried with Snow Leopard. I have two MACs at home, so i first tried with SL retail disc i bought to upgrade one of this to SL. But it always failed to start, so i move to iPortable, because i am installing in a external USB drive. But iATKOS should be fine. I think is important to know my background, because that is the reason my procedure looks to easy. If you came from a OSX86 box with Leopard, SL is more simple. If is your first try, then, as you said, you need a lot of patient. And now, i can try to help you with your issues: 1. Graphic. The kext i put here is not to be used alone. I just posted because Mauro requested. iPortable does not install any kext for ATI or NVIDIA at all, so you boot with a standard 1024-768 resolution not so nice. But in /Hackintosh tools/Snow Drivers/Video Drivers you have all removed kext, that should be also included in iATKOS. I was trying and failing with my old Leopard kext, and the new ones included in iPortable, until i find the correct mixture to boot with 1680x1050 in the internal panel. It also support external panel, but only one at time (internal or external, not both). I had the same isssue on Leopard and i was not able to solved it, but i can live with it . I will attach all my graphic kext for you, but remember is only for my model (ATI X1600 1002-71c5), any diferent model may work or may not. Before you install, you have to remove all ATI*.kext from /System/Library/Extensions folder, and also NVIDIA kext if any. Then, install mine, cross your fingers, restart and let me know how is going. 2. Ethernet. How are you installing the kext? This kext was from my old Leopard, and configured for my exact model (BCM5753M_14e4-16fd_rev21). The command i use is only to setup a MAC address, and you only need to do after successfully installing the ethernet card. en0 is the first ethernet card detect in the system. If you don't have any Ethernet, you don't have any en? interface, so command is useless for you right now. The problem with this ethernet card is that MAC address is in a NVRAM, and MacOS cannot read that NVRAM, so when you finally install the driver, you will have no MAC address, and you need to fire my command ;-) Answer me and we can try to help you.

  2. Hi guys. @Mauro and @the-greg, find attached my own kext, because i can't remember where i got it. Let me know if is running for you also. @V, i think you need to read a little bit more before trying to install Snow Leopard! Regards/Salu2 ATINDRV.kext.zip AppleBCM5701Ethernet.kext.zip
  3. Hi As i can't post in any other forum, i will do here :-) I want to share my experience with and HP nw8440 and Snow Leopard.

For Audio, i used included VoodooHDA.kext For Ethernet, i use AppleBCM5701Ethernet.kext from my previous Leopard installation, and put in /System/Library/Extensions/IONetworkingFamily.kext/Contents/PlugIns/, i steel need to set MAC address by commnad: sudo ifconfig en0 lladdr MY:MA:CA:DD:RE:SS, or add to boot in the same way i did on Leopard: 1) echo '#!/bin/bash' > /Users/<myuser>/bin/mac.sh 2) echo 'ifconfig en0 lladdr MY:MA:CA:DD:RE:SS' >> /Users/<myuser>/bin/mac.sh 3) chmod +x /Users/<myuser>/bin/mac.sh 4) sudo defaults write com.apple.loginwindow LoginHook /Users/<myuser>/bin/mac.sh To show battery info, i use included VoodooBattery.kext, VoodooPowerAcpi.kext and VoodooPowerMini.kext and AppleACPIBatteryManager.kext, and also a downloaded version of AppleACPIBatteryManager.kext. For Video card, i use included ATIFramebuffer.kext, ATIRadeonX1000GA.plugin, ATISupport.kext, RadeonHD.kext, ATINDRV.kext, ATIRadeonX1000GLDriver.bundle, ATIRadeonX1000.kext, ATIRadeonX1000VADriver.bundle. I textedit RadeonHD and ATIRadeonX1000 to isolated my deviceid, but i think it can work without changes. I have resolution change, but no rotation, and i can work with internal or external display, but not both (as i got on Leopard). With ATIinject i got resolution change and rotation, but no external display, so i use RadeonHD instead. And that's all folks! Hope this can help someone and sorry for my english ;-)
