  1. SnowLeo and crossfire

    I already search on forum looking for something about hackintosh and crossfire, but i found nothing. So sorry if this question look newbie, but i would like to know if is possible or not to make a crossfire with 2x 4870 for example. If not possible, i would like to know if someone know if snow leopard maybe see 2 video card and let use 1 without problem. I mean, if crossfire not work on SL, can I keep crossfire for play games under Windows and then reboot SL and at least use 1 video card? Or i have to remove crossfire?
  2. Hello, first of all, congratulation for you great config! Im going to make similar configuration inpsired by you. I saw on Gigabyte site that they realised X58A-UD5 with USB3 / SATA3. Price is similar to previous X58-UD5. I would like to know your opinion if this buy can be risky about snow leopard compatibility. I know in advance about apple politics about lastest hardware is kinda slow, so i would like to know if maybe could be safer to pick X58-UD5. Thanks in advance.
  3. Hello, im going to change my computer with new configuration. Im not sure between P55+i5 or X58+i7. As gfx im going to geforce 285. Some guru could reccomand me P55 or X58? My goal is to build most compatible hackintosh available with best performance but without lose compatibility. So what you think would be hardware that need less patch and that usual have no problem with kernel retail update? Thanks in advance.
  4. Not sure if this work on snow leopard too, but on Leo 10.5.8 i solved this problem adding kext of Slice u can find here: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=117029 this is forum source where to get files: http://www.projectosx.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=337
  5. thx macuserava, now start to be more clear, but i still miss how to do step 1: restore retail sl into flash card. I have retail dmg dvd image 10a432, so what i have to do to make step 1? thanks again. PS. I can access leopard because i already have 10.5.8, so i can do everything that need from Mac.
  6. @verdant: i was starting follow your guide for install SL, well for a newbie i think is very confused, i mean theres hundreds dissertion from main step, i agree its important but i think is easy to lose the path in this way. By the way i arrived at this point: - create flash usb drive, you write requisite: (1) Access to a working Mac or Hack x86 OS X Leopard system (2) A 8GB USB flash drive (memory stick) (3) Your new Retail Mac OS X 10.6 Install DVD from which to make its .dmg image file, OR a pre-existing Retail Mac OS X 10.6 Install DVD dmg/.iso image fileTo make the OS X Install DVD image [.dmg] (or indeed any CD or DVD image) in Disk Utility by highlighting the disk in the sidebar -> File -> New -> Disk Image from diskXsY (Mac OS X Install DVD)....leaving Image Format as Compressed and Encryption as None....... (IMG:style_emoticons/default/smile.gif) (4) A DSDT.aml file generated for your MOBO/system (e.g. e.g. fassl's DSDT Patcher) (5) The Chameleon 2.0 RC1 Installer, or RC2 Installer, or an RC3 Installer (see below) I started follow it, - downloaded chamaleon rc1, find on google, but you could at least post link where to download for not to fall in mistake, - then there write nowhere what to do with the istaller, i mean...i gueessed partition target is usb flash card ok, but if you said, was better to avoid any mistake. - same about pciefi, i found it on google, but a link was welcome, always for avoid mistake - then i when on flash usb drive and replaced BOOT ...then guide go forward explain options to put in boot.apple.com.plist...but i think you forgot to explain what i should do with SL orginal dvd dmg image, because is write nowhere how to install dvd in flash usb card... so im stuck and really confused. Can u explain me clear what i have to do with the DL dmg image file and how to put it in flash drive "OSX_10.6_USB_Installer"? Thanks.
  7. Helllo, i have serious problem to download from rapidhsare. I months i cant download not even a file of 20kb...always overload, so please can you reupload all necessary files for run this guide in another server like megaupload or anyone. I even tried to google htose files, but always only RS links appear. Thank you in advance.
  8. Hello, i installed iAktos 7 then upgraded with 10.5.8 directly from apple updater. All work perfect except i noticed now that when i enter in system preferences i cant change parameters, i mean: - keyboard, if i try slide for input delay, it move and look it save, but when i try, nothing changed and when reopen keyboard panel, changes is not; - screensaver, i try disable slide until "never", it do it, but when i reopen, nothing changed What can be? Thanks in advance, my hardware is in signature.
  9. hello, i recently changed my mobo with a xfx 780i nforce. im trying make my 9800gx2 work by following this instructions. with gfxutil i get this display: DevicePath = PciRoot(0x1)/Pci(0x3,0x0)/Pci(0x0,0x0)/Pci(0x0,0x0)/Pci(0x0,0x0)/Pci(0x2,0x0)/Pci(0x0,0x0) with pacifist i installed all evga drivers kext. i tried Archive.zip device-propierties string in boot.plist. rebooted with -f and nothing changed, i mean i got usual fram buffer desktop as i did it no changes.

  10. Nevermind about 9800gx2, i have one too bought in august'08, after many many try and fail in january i bought 9800gt and successed to make it work at first try with every kind of method, yes it work perfect with efi strings, nvdarwin, nviject, etc... So problem is about 9800gx2...i still hope they will add maybe with snow leopard...who know.

  13. NVIDIA 9 Series Driver Installer v2

    THx for suggest, changing dvi plug solved all problems about change res. Now finally switch with all games too, and back to normal on fly. About nvcap i had same as your suggested. Yeah Btw there is kinda many 9800gt models, my for example have 0614 as id, i saw others id from 9800gt...i think nvidia did it big chaos with their new chip name...
  14. 10.5.6 Released!

    uphuck you're a genius...i know for many ppl this can be obiouvs, but not for me... I had same problem cuz installed iatkos with voodoo, infact updater right installed vanilla 9.6.0 as mach_kernel, but as u said com.apple.Boot.plist had still "custom" attribute, while updater did it full update 10.5.6 and Boot.plist still loaded old voodoo cuz this "custom". For ALL with iATKOS 5i update to 10.5.6 without problem from official apple updater, no risk (except audio in some case u need re-patch or other common things)..then remember edit your com.appl.Boot.plist from "custom" to "mach_kernel" manually, or you will not able install any .dmg cuz you are running kernel (old voodoo 10.5.5 named "custom") with fresh new System.kext 10.5.6. so thx again for this great hint uphuck!

    Hello i already posted in different topic, maybe this is right one for my problem: i have 9800GT work good with CI/QE enabled, but when try change resolution from monitor paner preference, it turn light blue clean screen and nothing happen...need hard reboot. I cant even play games that change resolution, because it turn this light blue screen or black and nothing happen. I have 10.5.5 i tried install aqua-mac 9000 series drivers and even 9f9intaller.pkg...both method give me this problem when i try change resolution. Anyone have suggest? Thx in advance.
