  1. Thanks for your help! I managed to fix it but didn't need either of the kexts you mentioned. Since I recently started using an external card for audio, I had neglected to re-install the 10.6.2 AppleHDA kext after updating to 10.6.5. After I installed that, the restart/shutdown has been working fine. I'm using ev0reboot or Ellitforcelegacy. What bios reboot issue are you having? I have a dual boot with Win 7 too and it's working fine...
  2. Hmm that didn't seem to work for me. Do you mind posting the ev0reboot kext you're using? Maybe I grabbed an older version? Also, did you install it in /Extra/Extensions or S/L/E? Thanks for your help!
  3. Ever since updating to 10.6.5, I'm having trouble shutting down and restarting. The system just hangs after I hit shutdown and restart. Anyone else having that issue?
  4. Hi guys, wondering if you could chime in on a USB problem I'm having. When I plug my iPod Touch into the USB 3.0 ports in the back, it charges fine, but iTunes does not recognize the iPod as plugged in. It works normally in all the other regular USB 2.0 ports though. I was just wondering, if that just because Apple doesn't support USB 3.0 yet? Or is my system messed up in some way? Do you guys have iPods/iPhones mounted fine in iTunes through USB 3.0? Thanks in advance for your help!
  5. I have a Rev 2 board, I tried all the other DSDTs posted on this thread, but one I had originally used on a Rev 1 board worked best for me (lower temps and better overall functionality). I have everything working including Sleep. Only problem, of course, is that the Ethernet only works in 32-bit. Workaround is to get a cheap $10 PCI Ethernet card or a cheap $10 Wireless USB Adapter. (I'm using wireless). I'm betting a lot of issues people are having are related to driver installations and not only DSDT. This is what I did to get my rig up and running: I did a fresh install from an existing Mac. Used UInstaller to install 10.6, then the 10.6.4 combo update. Then used [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] to install all the necessary drivers, these are the options I checked under the "Advanced Options Tab" in [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url]: Kexts-­‐-­‐-­‐-­‐>Audio-­‐-­‐-­‐>LegacyHDA-­‐-­‐-­‐>ALC889 Kexts-­‐-­‐-­‐-­‐>Audio-­‐-­‐-­‐>HDAEnabler-­‐-­‐-­‐>ALC889 Kexts-­‐-­‐-­‐-­‐>Audio-­‐-­‐-­‐>AppleHDA 10.6.2 Kexts-­‐-­‐-­‐-­‐>Disk-­‐-­‐-­‐>IOAHCIBlockStorageInjector (fixes the orange hard drive icons) Kexts-­‐-­‐-­‐-­‐>Graphics-­‐-­‐-­‐>NVEnabler Kexts-­‐-­‐-­‐-­‐>Network-­‐-­‐-­‐>RealtekR1000SL (doesn't really help us Rev 2 people, but good to have anyway...)

My DSDT and smbios.plist files are attached to this post. Note about Video: I was originally using a 9800 GT. But it had annoying issues. It hooked up fine to my monitor through DVI, but as soon as a used a DVI-to-HDMI adapter to take it to my TV, the screen went blank after the Apple boot logo. I looked it up and turns out that's a common issue with a lot of video cards (and I couldn't find a single fix). I also tried a GTS 250 and got the same issues (works fine with DVI, but no-go on HDMI). So I stick with my GT 240 'cause it just plain works without any extra futzing. A 9500 GT is also good too. Anyway, hope all this helps. If only they came out with 64-bit versions of the Ethernet driver, we'd be set.

    Airport-like app for Ralink 2870

    I have a Linksys WUSB100 v2 and had some problems getting it all to work, main problem being the need to unplug/re-plug the dongle every time I turned the computer on (even with the latest drivers). Bogus. But after a mish-mash of methods, I finally got it working right. Here's what worked for me on my EP45-UD3L system on 10.6.4 64-bit...Thanks a million to AquaMac whose RalinkAirport app makes all this work! In case someone else is having the same re-plugging issue, this is how I got mine working... You'll need the files from AquaMac's first post and the latest Ralink USB2870 driver: http://www.ralinktech.com/support.php?s=3 1. Install the RT2870 driver from the Ralink dmg. Don't restart when it asks you to. 2. Copy Aquamac's "Ralink Airport" app to /Applications. 3. Copy Aquamac's "RalinkWirelessUtility.prefPane" to /System/Library/Preferencepane 4. Restart. 5. Once back on your desktop, go to System Preferences-->Accounts--->LoginItems 6. Get rid of the "AwakeX$#$#X" item and add the "RalinkAirport" app. 7. Go to System Preferences-->RalinkWireless. Set up and save your wireless profile/etc). 8. Restart. This worked for me. Now I don't have to replug my thing everytime, my internet's connected as soon as I'm on the desktop. Thanks again!
  7. I had a lot of problems getting this to work right, my main problem being the need to re-plug the thing every time I turned the computer on. Bogus. But after 2 hours of futzing around and trying different methods, I finally got it working right. Here's what worked for me on my EP45-UD3L system on 10.6.4 64-bit...(although should work on 32-bit as well) (All credit goes to AquaMac whose RalinkAirport app makes all this work) First download the latest Ralink USB2870 driver: http://www.ralinktech.com/support.php?s=3 Also grab my attachment. The following worked for me (all necessary files in my attachment): 1. Install the RT2870 driver from the Ralink dmg. Don't restart when it asks you to. 2. Copy "Ralink Airport" app to /Applications. 3. Copy "RalinkWirelessUtility.prefPane" to /System/Library/Preferencepane 4. Restart. 5. Once back on your desktop, go to System Preferences-->Accounts--->LoginItems 6. Get rid of the "AwakeX$#$#X" item and add the "RalinkAirport" app. (Doing this will make the computer open the Ralink app as soon as you boot in). 7. Go to System Preferences-->RalinkWireless. Set up and save your wireless profile/etc). 8. Restart. And now you should (along with the neat little apple airport icon at the top-right of your screen. This worked for me. Good luck.

  8. LAN actually does work now on the Rev 2 boards, no need to get an extra card for network. Just install the attached driver using Kext Utility. If anyone has sound working in 64-bit mode on this board, please post your drivers! And your DSDT! Thanks! AR8131SnowDriver.zip

    TP-Link TL-WN951N with Snow Leopard working!

    Removing AppleHPET.kext did not work for me. I'm at 10.6.3 using the WN851N. Any other extra drivers that need installing? Thanks!
  10. Thanks very much!!! This fix totally worked for me on my EP45-UD3L, got sound working after the 10.6.3 update. I've attached it to this post here so others don't have to go through rapidshare. Just drag the AppleHDA.kext onto the Kext Utility icon and let it do it's thing. Once it's done, reboot, and boom, you'll have sound again. The Tonymacx86 page's fix did NOT work for me, but this did. EP45UD3L_10.6.3_AudioFix.zip
  11. Found this fix for this. Just replace the LegacyHDA.kext in Extra with the one I have attached. Then run Kext Utility. Reboot. And your headphone jack will be working without needing to change anything in Sound Prefs! LegacyHDA.kext.zip
  12. My Headphone jack on the front of my case doesn't seem to work. I'm on an EP45-UD3L, and everything besides that is working great thanks to Mr Janek! In System Prefs--->Sound, it shows 4 outputs, but choosing any of them doesn't get sound out of my case's headphone jack (which is definitely connected). Does anyone happen to have a fix for the headphones for the EP45-UD3L? Thanks in advance for your help!
  13. Hi all, having an issue with graphics on my EP45-UD3L BIOS F7. I have a Palit 9500 GT 1 GB DDR2 with VGA, DVI, and HDMI outputs. When connected with VGA, after the grey screen with the Apple logo, the screen just goes blue. If I tap the power button, my desktop shows up. But I can't change the resolution. Basically, VGA output just doesn't work. DVI works. HDMI works. But even using a DVI to VGA adapter is not working. I was needing VGA to connect it to an HDTV. Has anyone figured out a fix for this? I tried installing NVEnabler64.kext to no avail. It seems like a lot of you had a similar issue, but I couldn't find a mention of a fix. Anyone got it working? EDIT: Problem FIXED!!! I had to add 2 more kexts to /Extra/Extensions than the Kakewalk installer provided. Disabler & NVEnabler64. I also replaced my dsdt.aml in /Extra with a more customized one. Then ran Kext Utility. Rebooted, and BAM! All video outputs working. VGA, HDMI, DVI. Attached to this post are all the files needed to fix your problem. Hope this helps anyone having this issue! EDIT #2: You do not need the Disabler kext. Just replace your dsdt.aml with the attached one and add NVEnabler kext. EP45_UD3l_videofix.zip

    Dell Inspiron 1318 got it working

    Thanks Dabluest! I FINALLY got myself up and running with 10.6.2 with a combination of yours and XP's files. Everything is working, besides LAN of course. I can't thank you enough! I will post a step-by-step guide on how I got it running this week for sure.

    Dell Inspiron 1318 got it working

    Hey Dabluest, do you mind posting your com.apple.boot.plist / dsdt.aml files? I tried installing Snow Retail following XP's instructions. Did it through USB. Install went okay for a while, then FAILED saying that it couldn't use my partition as a startup disk. Regardless, it still let me enter the OS which was nice. But then the problems started. I managed to get everything up and running, but the video res won't change. And I also noticed XP's com.apple.boot file has a built-in command to boot 32-bit, and saw on your signature that you're 64-bit Vanilla. We would love a guide if/when you have the time! Thanks! Also for DUAL BOOTERS-------- if anyone is trying to do a dual boot like me, you need to PATCH two files on the snow retail disk so it will allow you to install Snow properly onto an MBR partition. Meaning you have to either make a copy of the disc with the new files or restore it to a USB flash drive. Instructions are here: And necessary files are attached... 1. Replace OSInstall.mpkg in /Volumes/Mac OS Install DVD/System/Installation/Packages 2. Replace OSInstall to /Volumes/Mac OS Install DVD/System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/Install.framework/Frameworks/OSInstall.framework/Versions/A OSInstall_SLeo.zip
