  1. SL KP on boot Intel DG31PR

    im using BIOS 47 BTW. I believe the set up is explained above. On install of 10.6.2 audio went away, so I reinstalled the the kext mentioned in my posts above and it works... sorta. Its the first line out option in system prefs, and I am in the middle audio port.

    Sorry I haven't been on in a minute! Will take a look when I get home tonight. Upgrade to 10.6.2 killed audio again!!! and I just got a windows 7 disk to give that mess a shot. Oh what fun it is to mess with my computer until the early morning <~sarcasm

    that's been the case for a while. Take your video card out and it will most likely work, but whats the fun in that!!! right now mine doesn't beep anymore and stays running it just doesn't come out of sleep. no beeps..... interesting I think. My monitor is connected via a DVI to HDMI cable that does weird wacky things to my video card too and computer too.
  4. vram is gonna be the big one, i always get the cheapest and add all of the ram I can afford.
  5. I think that's just for storage. linux is free

    Please take this with a grain of salt as I didnt write down my process. It was quite easy though. I am not updating anything. I moved to a new hard drive, and thus I can use the OSInstaller.mpkg on the SL disk. This is just a regualr $29 disk BTW. i created my DSDT.aml from the first part of this post http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=183751 Installed newest Chameleon stuff and created a boot.plist -> this is probably the most important part of that: <key>Boot Banner</key> <string>Yes</string> <key>Kernel</key> <string>mach_kernel</string> <key>Kernel Flags</key> <string>-f</string> Installed from the OSinstaller.mpkg under SLDisk/System/Installers (i think) When it was done i wish I had used kext utility. That solved a bunch of problems. Do that!!! deleted AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement.kext deleted AppleHPET.kext in E/E i have Disabler fakesmc NullCPUPowerManagement UUID from this post -> http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=183751 In S/L/E i have AppleHDA.kext and HDAEnabler.kext from the first post. Restart, and set BIOS as Everyone is saying in this thread. Start up Snow Leo. Update from Apple Software Update to 10.6.1. Repair Permissions 5 or 6 times. Do the Same with Kext Utility. Cross fingers. Move over what you want from old disk using Migration Assistant and remember Time Machine is your friend!!!! I have a bunch of line ins. I don't think they all work but I have nothing to test with. FireWire Audio interface on a pci card is doing great wonders for my audio. And SL is defiantly faster, that's for sure. Thanks to all who made this so damn easy!!!

    got audio working with the dg31pr_snow.zip package above. Just put the AudioHDA & HDAEnablert is S/L/E using kext helper. it seems i forgot to do the touch part. on to bigger things, like working!!!
  8. besides the .avi file type, which should play just fine in FCP. It really depends more on the codec used inside the files. I would suggest closing everything and installing perian. if that doesnt work try flip for mac. or XVID. but all of those decoders are flakey and that might not work at all with whatever you are editing. You can grap mpeg streamclip and convert to a more FCP suitable codec and file type such as DV/DVC-Pro or Apple Pro Res inside of a .mov file type.
  9. that was a little too easy

    on the same note I found a 2 port sata pci card that is Mac compatable at CompUsa. haven't installed yet cause im bitter my firewire card is getting the boot but it should take care of the lack of satas due to IDE mode. BTW after a few starts and stops I was able to repair permissions. It was this morning before I went to work so Im crossing my fingers everything is good when I go home
  11. Partioning for FCP editing

    welcome to FCP. are you talking about the cannon 5d mark ii slr camera? In any case FCP likes to use HFS for its scratch drive. It doesnt matter if it's MBR or GUID. NTSF wont work and FAT32 will eat larger video files. when you open FCP set the scratch via the menu item Final Cut Pro>System Settings. Set the scratches, autosave and caches. I usually put all this in a scratch folder and all my assets in another folder, and depending on the speed of the drive (the vr should rock it) these two folders are on the same drive with the project file. This drive is usually not the same physical drive as the OS. The big speed boost comes when rendering complex filters or generators, or working with multiple clips of HD. PS, that's a decent spec. let us know how it renders.
  12. weird thing. I don't have extensions.mkext in system/library, any idea how to rebuild? its in Extra. No love on the audio, doesn't work for me. Will try uping to latest BIOS tonight.
  13. SL KP on boot Intel DG31PR

    kinda bogus to leave out two drives when we already are limited so much on the dg31pr. anyone have any ideas of a work around? BTW im up and running by installing from the OSXinstaller.mkpg from the install disk/system/installation/packages/OSInstall.mpkg from retail disk installed newest chameleon installed extras folder + fakesmc deleted AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement.kext deleted AppleHPET.kext repaired permissions with Kext Utility CANNOT REPAIR PERMISSIONS WITH DISK UTILITY!!! - lame! I upgraded from software update without issue and installed all the rest of the software from the OSX disk. And its running like butta (suppa duppa fast), except the audio doesn't work. I have seriously tried everything there short of taruga's patcher, and I'm not doing that. I have HDAEnabler and AppleHDA in E/E and S/L/E with no love. Strangely tho, I also do not have an extensions.mkext under system/library

    BTW i remember when installing LEO I had to use mbr. is this fixed with the BIOS at 47? Mine has always been at 52. Aesop69 - what BIOS version are you using?
  15. SL KP on boot Intel DG31PR

    any chance we can get the link for that Brazilian CD? my Portuguese is a little unpracticed. cheers! I am getting the same errors with KPs from IOATAFamily. I have tried everything in this post and will be awaiting something a bit more solid. I've got an pretty diesel audio interface so I'm not too worried about loosing audio, have you guys had any problems with PCI cards? I know there was an HPET issue in 10.5.7 and 10.5.8. My cards are firewire and connect to the audio interface, so if that doesn't work there will be no audio for me.
