  1. Anyone know how to find the MLB/ROM data in a Macbook Pro bios chip dump. I have a dead MBP logic board and removed the bios chip and read it with a chip programer but have no idea how to find the data I need or if the dump even contains that data. Looks like the serial number at the last when opened in hex editor.

  2. Tried to get this to work months ago... gave up

    NOW new [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] now makes it possible to install and boot, only from [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] disc

    After 5 full days (and nights) of read success stories and reinstalling on every fail attempt, resorting to help from the pro's.


    Installed SL OSX 10.6... now what do I do


    Install Kexts or Install muiltibeast 3.2 first? If so what version of muiltibeast and on what settings is the gigabyte ATI HD5670 HD to work


    I have looked on many posts for days to find a working tutorial, many say to have a clean sl installation and then got strait into telling you to copy files to the extra folder, however there is no extra folder before installing muiltibeast.


    I am dieing to try my custom build on snow and would love it if someone could point me in the right direction or even (sorry to ask) write a brief guid telling to guid me into the light.


    Sorry to have to resort to asking, but I have no other option... you probably know how im feeling, anyway thanks again




    mb: Gigabyte GA-X58A-UD7

    gpu: Gigabyte ATI HD5670

    cpu: Intel Core i7 930 Processor



    My Sapphire 5670 works on Snow Leopard 10.6.8 as well as Lion, no special steps required, drivers are included in SL 10.6.7, 10.6.8 and Lion



  3. Yes, that is better, did a clean install using IDE DVD drive on jmicron controller.

    Have one small problem, when i get to "Disk Utility" one of my sata drives don't show.

    It is an older 80 WD drive, i have switched sata ports but makes no difference.

    Must be missing kext.


    Good work Trauma, much appreciated.



    Got rid of that old 80 gb test drive, Boot CD helped install SL Retail perfectly on SATA replacement, no "Install Failed" errors.

    Very nice indeed.



  4. Looks very good but i cannot get any files copied to the 'extra" folder.

    I am running it from the desktop on a SL install, have tried copy paste,drag and drop, and keyboard shortcut for paste.


    Any help will be appreciated.
