  1. Snow Leopard works in GA-965P-S3

    Hey Slither, I've been looking for a solution for my "popping" audio and I came across this Forum. I have a P5K Pro Mobo using alc883 audio. I've read through this forum and I saw that by changing smbios to say MacPro fixes the popping or perhaps using a patched DSDT.aml with the legacy kexts fixes this. My case is my audio is working but whenever I use Audio or when the OS makes default noises from tasks it always pops first then works OK. This popping is getting very frustrating and I'm trying to find a definite solution. I assume my DSDT is working with the legacy kexts since I am getting sound at all, but not quite sure if the pin layout may be screwy which is causing the popping or maybe something is configured wrong and its initializing improperly. Any help and or advice is greatly appreciated. Thanks Slither!
  2. Nevermind. I was applying the settings to the com.apple.Boot.plist in the snowleo drive and it was supposed to be applied to the USB drive which is what I'm booting from. Once I applied to the USB boot drive to com.apple.Boot.plist everything was working! Thanks.
  3. maxo0 when you did this how did you get it to work in SL? I've tried to edit my com.apple.Boot.plist in /sldrive/Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/com.apple.Boot.plist But my video card doesn't load when putting in the custom hex string. I tried moving the com.apple.Boot.plist to /sldrive/Extra and Chameleon didn't boot to that SL drive when I made that change for some odd reason. I deleted the com.apple.Boot.plist from /Extra and the Chameleon was able to boot the drive again. I have GeForce 8400GS 256mb. Any advice is greatly appreciated. Thanks!
  4. I have a P5K mobo and I followed this guide http://lifehacker.com/5351485/how-to-build...start-to-finish It worked flawlessly although I did have to use these files http://www.mediafire.com/?jnhaoijtjg1 On my inital boot of Snow Leopard I ran disk utility and then repaired permissions. I then copied the dsdt.aml and boot to the root of my SL drive. I then copied the kexts in the Extra folder to the Extra directory on my SL drive. Ran disk utility to repair permissions again, rebooted and sound was working. The only thing left I have to configure is my video which I think I can do via EFI studio. I'll post back whenever I get that working. Also noticed that when I leave the machine after a while it locks up. I think this is from the "sleep" issue which I know there is a fix for I just haven't tried that yet either and will post back if the sleep fix works. Thanks to Master Chief who assisted with the files! This should work with all P5k mobo's.
  5. I agree Can you clean it up some maybe be a little more specific as well. Good idea, bad job, I second.
  6. Blackosx I posted the new pic. I'm not sure if you saw it. Can you make anything of it?? Thanks and I appreciate your feedback!
  7. Hey Black, Sorry about the bad pic. Here is another, got it all this time. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks Black!
  8. OK Black I've started over followed your guide meticulously and I don't have the same KP as before but something new has come up. Hopefully you can tell from this pic what the issue is. When I reboot I get the apple logo and it just sites there (I think this is the Chameleon bootloader). Nothing happens with that it just sits there. When I reboot and use -v I get the error in the pic shown above. I've compiled my DSDT since my mobo is Asus P5K Pro and I edited the smbios.plist to reflect my mobo, uuid for snowleo hd, etc. I've also made sure that I'm using the right "boot" you supplied to replace on the chameleon partition. Any insight would be greatly appreciated. I feel I'm making progress but unsure. Thanks
  9. Thanks Lukeyb I'll try that and report back... @prettyby7 - Your KP is common with not using Netkas' PC EFI boot v10 Thanks for the quick response blackosx I will start over again to ensure I'm using Netkas' PC EFI boot v10
  10. Hey BlackOSx the epitome of guides!! I'm getting KP with my mobo P5K Pro. Any suggestions? Thanks -PB

    Do you mean resetting the permissions? I used kext utility to redo the permissions. Still KP when I choose to boot from the SL HD.
  12. [How to] Asus P5K-VM guide

    Hey DB1 I've been following your post from other forums since your mobo is close to mine; here is my system details maybe you can help me with the Kernel Panics I'm getting: P5K Pro Mobo Video: GeForce 7300GT 256M Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16814500033
  13. [How to] Asus P5K-VM guide

    I've tried the 'Revised_Improved_SL install' guide as well (I have p5K pro mobo) with it I get a KP with "Mac OS Version Not Yet Set" with uptime in nanoseconds. I've tried modyfing the DSDT.aml (DSDT Patcher) editing smbios.plist to match UUID of my 10.5.8 Leopard install and still KP on SL. I'm using a separate HD to setup and install to with Main HD still loading LEO 10.5.8.
  14. P5K-SE - Retail Leopard Instalation

    I've tried both of the guides mentioned on top (I have p5K pro mobo). With both I get a KP with "Mac OS Version Not Yet Set" with uptime in nanoseconds. I've tried modyfing the DSDT.aml editing smbios.plist and still KP. I'm using a separate HD to setup and install to with Main HD still loading LEO 10.5.8.

    Hey Farski been following your posts all weekend. I've been getting the same errors as you have and I have the same board (P5K Pro). Can't wait for you to post your final solution especially on patching DSDT. I've used DSDT patcher and EFI Studio to no avail. I don't want to just copy someone else's DSDT.aml for sake that it might not work with my board but since you have a P5K Pro, that might be the way to go. Thanks Farski and can't wait for your final solution, I'm sure several other P5 mobo's will benefit too! Thanks to Tommy too!
