  3. ATI Sapphire 3870 Patch?

    i have the 3870 ultimate and the drivers for the 3870s should be included in all current hacked distributions, at least it was in kalyway 10.5.2 and ideneb 10.5.4

  5. well title says it all, i built a new rig for my dad to replace his aging 867mhz powerbook G4 and want to install tiger oon a raid 0 system config is the following: Q6600 4GB ram abit ix38 quadgt 2x seagate 7200.11 640gb hd 3870 so far i managed it to install the system on one of the drives using ideneb (will do kalyway next time, too many things xchanged, especially background images) audio, graphics, cores, ram, all detected without any problems so i know the system is fully compatible does anyone know a s step by step guide to get raid 1 working on the ich9r so the drives are mirrored in vista AND osx? additionally i have problems resuming from sleep when using S3 mode, it appears to return properly but i have no signal from the graphics card so sleep only works 100% when using S1 which doesn't power off the fans.. any input is appreciated, i REALLY want to get this dam RAID 1 up and running

  9. OSX86 on Intel P45 chipset?

    just found this topic after hours of searching and want to add something: P5Q deluxe installs perfectly (had similar issues, however they were related to expressgate (!) and AHCI mode i installed kalyway 10.5.2 from a sata dvd (ich10) on a dedicated hdd (don't want to mess with a bootloader, just choose correct harddrive by pressing F8 @bios load screen) with all correct drivers selected + vanilla kernel and everything went fine until i rebooted and got stuck on the grey apple screen with the grey circle spinning for hours anyone with the same issue here to help??? I#LL TRY KALYWAY COMBO UPDATE + 10.5.4 from apple update once i sort this out PS: sry for caps...)
  10. after installing leo on a dedicated hard disk (vanilla kernel) and trying to restart my pc hangs at the grey apple screen, i let it sit for 3 hours (went shopping) and it was still there system: e8400 asus p5q deluxe (p45+ich10) amd hd3870 (2 in crossfire, removing one doesn't change anything...) creative x-fi (only for win, removing it doesn't help 4gb of g.skill gpq 6400 ram i tried reinstalling with 3 different kernels from the kalyway install dvd, various startup options don't help either need suggestions!!!!! EDIT: is it a mistake to choose natit stuff at installation??? shall i wait until i'm inside the os and deselect all drivers search turns up 1k+ hits but no hit with a real solution or similar hardware....
