  1. Quite sure - I'm posting from it right now. Not really. Have you edited the default KEXTs in any way?
  2. You can get one of these off eBay: http://www.hwtools.net/Adapter/MP2W.html I'm using this in conjunction with the BCM94321MC.
  3. Either should work. I'm using the Apple-built card, and Windows 7 kicks in with its own drivers automatically.
  4. Broadcom BCM94321MC (Works in both kernels.)
  5. Get one of these: http://www.hwtools.net/Adapter/MP2W.html Then get a Broadcom BCM94321MC. Both can be found off eBay - and everything works on both 32/64-bit kernels.
  6. The orange icons are fixed with the SATA DSDT patch. It can also be fixed by using AppleIntelPIIXATA.kext. Obviously, the DSDT patch is "preferred". Different BIOSes, different board revisions, etc. can all affect addresses. That's why I recommend you patch your own DSDT. 1. I actually don't remember which one I used initially. However, I know that DSDTSE worked for me, and produced the same result as DSDT Patcher, etc. 2. Leopard, it was booted off a boot-132 disk (i.e. no DSDT loading). 3. Mine is the same board, however, I have loaded a Rampage Formula BIOS onto it (0803). I'm an overclocker, you see. I know my system wouldn't sleep properly without the USB patches.
  7. You also need to make the DSDT patch for audio.
  8. I've been a bit busy over the past week or two - I promise I'll get around to updating everything and answering questions. Have you tried using the ISO included in my package? It should be straight-forward: Burn the ISO. Boot into it. Eject the CD, and insert a retail OS X DVD. Hit enter. Hit enter again when you see a "Enter hexadecimal" prompt.
  9. Could you post the iaslMe log file? A good place to start would be the GFX section.
  10. Probably a DSDT problem - take the ime to patch your own DSDTs. Check my post again - I've corrected the addresses. I've heard that the KEXT caches are better rebuilt under the 32-bit kernel. However, if you install your KEXTs with Kext Utility, those caches are already rebuilt. Even then, I haven't had issues with booting directly into 64-bit. It is purely a cosmetic issue. Search for the "About This Mac strings" fix. You should correct them - as all the CPU info will be incorrect, as my CPU has been overclocked.
  11. The one included should be version 2. (I know I've updated - don't know if it made it into the package...) Much appreciated. DSDTSE does not contain all the fixes, but it does do many of them (as mentioned by yourself: RTC, DTGP and HPET). You still need to do the sound/SATA/USB/other fixes (or at least check that they are correct). Fix extensions? Everything should work correctly in the 64-bit kernel. The KEXTs directory contains other things in case the DSDT fixes don't work correctly, and an "emergency" boot is needed. They can be ignored. As long as all the edits specified are made to the DSDT, those KEXTs can all be dropped - that was the point of editing the DSDT (mainly). Those KEXTs are not necessary. They are only necessary if you are experiencing CPU heat issues. I personally don't need them because of my non-stock cooling. That indicates something wrong with your GFX.
  12. Yes, it already contains the patches, but you should create your own, otherwise, you may get panics (see post below yours). It does not matter, either way will work. Probably best to do it in Leopard, you want to see that Welcome video in all its glory, don't you? Yes, you need to include the patches posted to get some vital things working. It does not matter where you create it. I suggest doing it before you boot into SL though. Ignore my description text - just run the commands on a GPT (GUID Partition Table) disk. For a more technical explanation: all GPT-formatted disks still contain a legacy MBR. This is created so that GPT-unaware applications don't overwrite it. Also, PCs without EFI still read the executable in the MBR to load the disk (if it is marked as active). Reboot and hope. Incidentally, there is actually a "bless" command in *nix systems. You just need a working Leopard install (vanilla or otherwise). The files included are the 2.0 RC3 files. I still get the "Sound assertion" errors, however, they don't really seem to be impacting anything, so I've left them for now.
  13. Help with ATI Radeon 4850 in Snow Leopard

    You can also just look at the top menu bar - if it is translucent, HW acceleration is working.
  14. Sleep works perfectly on my setup. The DSDT patches must be used, otherwise your USB keyboards/mice will be shut off, and can't be used to wake from sleep. Sorry, I don't, as I've never owned a (recent) nVidia card. Try the Graphics Card section. You need to apply the patches to the DSDT, as explained in my guide. The patches enable "proper" AHCI, USB, sound and power button support. It is placed in the "Extra" directory. Yes, I can boot in 64-bit perfectly, and I am using the vanilla kernel. There is no need to use alternative kernels if you have this board (and subsequently, a compatible CPU).
  15. Nice to know my guide (somewhat) works. I'll probably rejig some things in the guide soon. Have fun with SL. Right-Click > Show Package Contents
