  1. That did it! Such a simple fix... thank you for your help! My 10.8 install is now perfect
  2. Have you done anything with Mountain Lion yet? I can't get sleep working...
  3. I'm having trouble with sleep on my system, and after hours of searching the forums I can't figure it out. Any help would be great! Just installed ML 10.8 on my Gigabyte EX58-UD4P. I am using the exact kexts that come with this script (AppleRtc, FakeSMC, NullCpuPower, etc.). Most people say sleep should just work, but in my case the displays turn off but the fans keep running. I have to reboot the computer every time. I had this same issue with Lion, and have stuck to Snow Leopard until now. Anyone have it working on a similar board? Any tips on what to try next? Bios settings I'm missing maybe? Thanks for the help, and this wonderful script. I've used it since 10.5!
  4. Just wanted to add to this discussion. I have an XFX 6870 1gb, dual mini display port model. Worked great in 10.6 and 10.7, but hung at a white screen when booting into the 10.8 installer. I got it to boot without removing any kexts by using the boot flags AtiConfig=Duckweed and GraphicsEnabler=No. It's almost done with the installer, so I'll see if I can get it 100% working in the OS.
  5. I have this same board and have Lion 10.7.2 working fine except it will not pull out of sleep (I never get any display and I've tried multiple cards). Do you have sleep working on 10.7.2, and if so, how'd you do it? Thanks!
  6. Well, that makes two people though that have had the overclock affect sleep, so I guess I'm not crazy. I tried upping my QPI voltage and it helped some, although it still has issues occasionally. I'm a novice overclocker though, so I could have messed things up somewhere.
  7. I've experienced this problem before, and I believe the culprit was the overclock, somehow. I found that I could have a system that ran fine, but would not come out of sleep properly. Try running everything at stock for a while, and see if that makes a difference. Then, adjust your overclock to work. It may be something other than that, I'm not expert, but that's my suggestion to you.
  8. Just a follow up on my random reboot issue. I cut out as many kexts as I could, and nothing changed. Today, I ran a separate cable from my power supply (modular) to the SSD, which was previously being powered by a cable that was also powering two regular hard drives. It's been several hours and everything is perfect, prime95 just keep chugging along. Guess my power supply just needed a little help. Thanks for all the help/advice! One question: I cannot boot into 64-bit mode, it gives me a kernel panic mentioning com.driver.appleACPIplatform. I've had it booted in 64-bit mode in the past, but it's been a while. Any ideas? Google didn't give me anything relevant.
  9. Thanks for the help. I removed ATY_init.kext and JMicron36xSATA.kext, and it's running ok right now. I only installed those kexts because I had them in my stable 10.6.2 installation. I still need the ATA kext, I don't have a sata optical drive yet, but if that's causing problems I'll just buy a new one. Thanks again and I'll let you know if I see the problems pop up again! It only happens after a few hours of use, so it's not easy to troubleshoot...
  10. I need some help making my system stable. I have used this script method since before snow leopard came out, and it has always worked fine. Recently though, my system has been having issues. It sometimes won't come out of sleep, randomly reboots, or applications stop responding. I had a perfectly stable 10.6.2 install running, and then I purchased an OCZ SSD and did a fresh install of 10.6.6 (that's where I'm having the problems). My system acts the same whether it's overclocked or stock. Even at stock speeds and voltages, it will still randomly reboot. Windows and Ubuntu don't have any issues. I'm installing the following kexts from the script: 1) IOAHCIBlockStorageInjector.kext 1.1.1 N/A 4K /Extra 2) JMicron36xSATA.kext 0.7 N/A 8K /Extra 3) JMicronATA.kext 1.0.0 x86_64 180K /Extra Audio 4) HDAEnabler.kext 1.0.0d1 x86_64 108K /Extra 5) LegacyHDA.kext 888 N/A 72K /Extra Graphics 6) ATY_Init.kext 1.0.0d1 i386 540K /Extra 7) LegacyATI4800Controller.kext 9.0.2 N/A 4K /Extra Networking 8) IONetworkingFamily.kext 1.9 x86_64 3.7M /Extra Misc Patches 9) fakesmc.kext 2 x86_64 124K /Extra 10) NullCPUPowerManagement.kext 1.0.2 x86_64 80K /Extra 11) OpenHaltRestart.kext 2.1.0 x86_64 100K /Extra 12) PlatformUUID.kext 1.0.0 x86_64 104K /Extra 13) SleepEnabler.kext 10.5.0 x86_64 72K /Extra Anyone else experienced this? I use this desktop for work, so it's annoying me! Thanks
  11. ATI HD4850 (Sapphire) in Snow Leopard

    I know you posted this a while ago, but I had a similar card (Diamond brand, actually) but also with the DVI, VGA, and HDMI outputs and after 2 weeks of trying everything I couldn't get it to work. I swapped it out for an HIS card with dual DVI and it works with no issues.
  12. Speaking of raid, does anyone know of a good value hardware-based RAID? I've had the apple raid working before, but the performance gain was not what I expected. If anyone has an easily supported raid card let me know. Also, thank you so much for this script! I'm a professional web developer, and I've been using the same SL installation on my UD4P board since SL came out. Works perfectly, never had a kernel panic. I have a friend who does video editing and owns a dual-processor 2.26ghz nehalem mac pro. My hackintosh (at 3.75ghz) rendered HD video faster than the real mac, which cost 3 times as much. And when his mac broke down, guess who they called at the last minute to save them? Me with my hackintosh. It's an amazing machine, thanks for all your work making it possible!
  13. Sims 3 on a Hackintosh

    I have the same problem on my AMD athlon x2 3800+. I tried patching the application with Marvin's AMD utility, but it didn't fix the problem. It probably has dependencies on something else that I don't know. Did you ever get it figured out? I had it running on a Pentium 4 once, and of course my i7. It doesn't use Wine (unless you're trying to run it through wine). It uses cyder to run the windows .exe files in the game and all. If you dig through the package contents of the application you will actually find a folder labelled "c_drive". It's an AMD processor issue, I can guarantee you.
  14. Itunes crashes on Snow install

    Works great for me (older AMD Athlon X2 3800+ machine, not the specs in my signature). I never would have figured this one out, thanks so much!
  15. What's not working? I can try to help but we need a bit more information! What steps have you done and where exactly are you having the problem?
