  1. I would like to confirm this tutorial working for the latest Empire EFI release (Generic) and the retail Snow Leopard 10.6.3 disc. My Hardware: Asus P5W DH Deluxe with the BIOS Settings from Lifehacker. Nvidia 8800GT 512 MB 4GB 800 MHz Intel Core2Quad Q6600 @ 2.4 GHz The Software: Empire EFI 1.085 w/ 10.6.3 Support (Generic) Retail Snow Leopard 10.6.3 Installation Disc Using the same method, I installed the version of myHack included with EmpireEFI. I made no additional changes. After successfully booting, I used Kext Helper b7 to install VoodooHDA, the USB2 EHCI set of kexts, and NVenabler. One more reboot and I was running at maximum resolution. Sleep, Restart, and Shutdown are verified as working. One side-note, however. Kext Helper b7 was giving me trouble, and each time I used it required a Force Quit prior to reboot. This didn't seem to affect the installation of any kexts, however. Thank you so much for this guide. I am finally able to enjoy the wonders of Snow Leopard.
  2. P5W_Audio_Kexts___10.5.7.zip Hope these work for you, and good luck.
  3. I also had this problem after updating to 10.5.7. I had been using a 10.5.6 iPC installation prior, with the ALC882 driver (Non-Legacy) selected. Anyways, I reinstalled the following kexts from my previously working 10.5.6 installation: - AppleHDA.kext - AppleOnboardAudio.kext - HDAEnabler.kext - LegacyHDAController.kext - LegacyHDAPlatformDriver.kext I used OSX86 Tools to do the dirty work for me. Following reboot, my input was working just as before. My mic is plugged into the pink jack of my P5W, and it shows up as the Internal Microphone in System Preferences > Sound. This may not be the ideal way to get everything working, but it worked for me. I hope my method works for you, and good luck!
  4. update 10.5.3 to 10.5.4

    I only know of one way to 10.5.4, and that's through Apple's Software Update. If you're running a non-Vanilla kernel, however, your system will break. I'd wait for verification on this, but I believe you could update to 10.5.4 through Software Update, boot with "update" when prompted for special parameters, and install an older, compatible kernel of your choice. If I'm not mistaken, booting with "update" will use the last working kernel, which should allow you to access your computer and reinstate your chosen kernel. Good luck.
  5. applying nvinject.kext

    You can just use the NVinstaller. The link is to the latest version. http://www.mediafire.com/?kn9jpyan1gd More information can be found on this page: http://www.nvinstaller.com/
  6. Leopard 10.5.4 Experiencing Unusual Lagging

    Thanks for the reply, Tadone. I actually figured the problem out after reinstalling everything. :censored2: I had accidentally switched DVI ports on my 8800GT after moving my computer, which for some reason caused the lagging issues. It wasn't until I switched my monitor cable back to the first DVI port that things started working normally again. Now things are back to working 100%!
  7. Hello all, I recently installed Kalyway 10.5.2 on the following system: Asus P5w DH Deluxe Intel Q6600 4GB Corsair DDR2 EVGA Nvidia 8800GT Superclocked *Using Vanilla Kernel I then updated to 10.5.3 via the Kalyway ComboUpdate, and used the native Software Update in OSX to update to 10.5.4. On the surface, everything appears to be fine. However, when I open any audio or video files, my system will start bogging down. I noticed this while activated Expose during a video, and upon opening additional media files, my system will begin to crawl. Activity Monitor shows nothing out of the ordinary. My CPU barely jumps above 8%, and I have plenty of ram free (around 3 GB showing). Despite this, the entire system turns into a slideshow, and even spotlight becomes unresponsive. I checked my graphics drivers, and tried both NVKush and NVinstaller. At the moment, I'm back to NVInstaller, as I had problems editing the plist for 512 mb Ram with NVKush. Games such as World of Warcraft run flawlessly, confusing me even further, and making it impossible to pinpoint the problem. Perhaps I'm missing some vital BIOS setting? Any and all help is greatly appreciated. Thank You, s_k
