    Weird Logic Studio issue

    Yeah man, I wrote that possibility in another thread (didnt know what kinda issue this could be so i posted multiple topics in diff threads here.). Another kid here gave me a lil insight, I'm gonna try it tonight.
  2. I installed Kalway 10.5.1, everythings great, now I wanna use some apps. Tried to install Logic 8, but it tells me I need 64Megs VRAM to install, says I have 0 megs. Profiler says I have 64 megs! So I tried Final Cut 2, same error message. Anyone else got this prob/solution?

    Weird Logic Studio issue

    Just got my Kalyway install to work, alls great so now to install programs. Logic 8 Studio up first but weird error nessage: Logic states I cannot install with less than 64 megs VRAM (video RAM), tells me I have 0 megs. Hmmm, a quick check in Profiler clearly says 64megs VRAM. Specs for my mobo says the same. Intel not playing nice with Kaly? So I go for Final Cut 2. Same message upon install. Cant go no further. BIOS has option for memory allotment, did that as well. Anyone else got this?
  4. I need to change my sys specs as my systems new but Kalyway went on like a champ! Simple install, all on separate HD (WD 250gig, 2 parts, OSx on 1st part @75 gigs, 2nd part unused.) Did all partitioning w/ Kalyway in Disk Util, MBR scheme. ACHI on, all 3 SATA drives seen ( a 250gig- OSX, a Seagate 320gig - my beats and whatnot, and WD 750gig - Vista and files, videos, etc.) I also have a LG IDE DVD drive(GSA-H55L) NO PROBLEMS whatsoever. LAN works out of box, sound seems found, but I'm using outboard audio anyways (Saffire LE). No "About this Mac" issues and installed all avail updates, rebooted perfectly. I have not messed with Leopard too much, but Im stuck @ 1024x768 res for now, I need a lil help with that. Also, I need to dual boot, should i use BCDedit in Vista, or use OSX' boot loader? I only wanted OSX for Logic and Final Cut Studios, but when i try to install, both say I have 0 megs VRAM, and wont go no further. A quick check in Profiler says I have 64MB VRAM. Anyone got that issue? Maybe I need an intel video kext/driver? It's awesome. I'll be gettin back to y'all, I just need to {censored} some. Oh yeah..... EDIT: specs changed, whats written is what is...

    Best Build for AMD.

    Remember, there are no guarantees in all this. Even Intel setups have their issues, but then you shouldn't be wanting a hackintosh if you weren't ready to accept the risks! Good luck.

    Audiophile 24/96

    To clear up confusion, the drivers on M-audios site for 24/96 pci ARE ppc ONLY. They do NOT make drivers for intel macs for 24/96. The reason is that the Intel macs have PCIe slots, only ppc macs have PCI slots. To make drivers for hackintoshes supports, well, crime, in sorts. Your options? Ebay.

    Best Build for AMD.

    Its a waste of money to build with AMD if you are building with a higher end chip, a la 6000 x2. Comparatively, Intel has better speed and config options for building a Hackintosh for the money. Your Mobo will be more stable, less issues as long as you stick w/ an Intel chipset. I realize you are looking for AMD mobo option, but you're not getting what we're saying: the options for success are much, much more limited. Understand you did state the above quote, which reads very much like you are open to a change of mind. An AMD Hackintosh just isn't the best build out there, regardless of patches and fix-ups. Go with Intel, AMD just isn't the best decision. Dont know if you're in the States but here you can get an AMD 6000 x2 for $179.00; for that price a better option would be the E6550 @ $169.00. And it performs better for the most part. My 2 cents. Good luck. EDIT: As you can tell, i have an AMD setup (not the one in my sig, an upgraded x2 deal), so i know pretty much what you're in for. By all means, download one of Kalyway, or XxX 10.4.10 deals, and do it right, if you can.

    The Different Kernels

    Funny, we're all smart and ready to argue our points into oblivion until a real question comes along. I couldnt tell you. i think the Universal Kernels are from Semthex, but Im probably wrong. Id ask Uphuck, its his disk.

    OS X 1.4.8 "Hard Drive"

    I'd say update your BIOS, and see if that helps you.

    Nvidia ATA

    MMmmm, updated your BIOS lately?

    Uphuck 10.4.9 NetInfo problem

    I could be wrong here but I assume its not finding your NIC, and even worse, your NIC is causing a lockup of some sort. Go into BIOS and turn your NIC off, and then try to install.

    Can't Burn Image

    ImageBurn kicks ass, and its free. Itll burn all your images (including the rare used yet oft seen *.cdr image), and even try to find a firmware upgrade, but approcah that one w/ caution, if your burners working fine, you dont want to mess it up by upgrading the firmware.
