  1. Update to 10.8.2 hang before GUI

    Managed to make it work with the patched bios from this thread: http://www.tonymacx8...o-10-8-2-a.html EDIT: Apparently not, it appears that it works intermitently, about 1 time in 10. I am completely hopeless here. I tried with both MacPro5,1 and iMac in smbios, with the original drivers, with the web drivers, etc...
  2. My configuration: ASUS P8Z68-V PRO GTX 560 (non-Ti) 2 monitor setup Up until now I had a fully working 10.8.0 install with nothing more than a DSDT, FakeSMC with no plugins and Disabler in Extra, GraphicsEnabler=YES and VoodooHDA in /S/L/E. Due to a mix of curiosity and divine perturbation, I up(down)graded to 10.8.2 via software update and now I'm stuck right before it should start the GUI. I can SSH into it, but not VNC. I tried with PCIRootUID=0, nothing. Added my GPU's device ID in NVGFHAL1000's info.plist, nothing (although it says that NVGFHAL is loaded during bootup). I can boot with -x, but that's pretty much it. Also, if I remove GraphicsEnabler I get a KP. Have no idea what to do.
  3. Geforce 500 Series

    awesome! I'll see tomorrow if I can get my gtx 560 (nonTi) working
  4. Attansic L1 Driver Project

    Doesen't work for me (P5K). on 10.6.0. It doesen't even show up in system profiler.
  5. I need the same thing too. I just can't wait to try it, but I only have a 10.6.0 Retail DVD. I can't event install it without this. Can you please compile it for 10.6.0? (ASUS P5K ICH9)
  6. Thanks for the tutorial. For me this fixed just part of the job. I have an ASUS P5K(P35 chipset with ICH9). Before patching my DSDT it would go halfway to sleep, the power LED on my case was still on, and I could hear the fans. Now the same happens, just that the power LED is blinking, like it already was in S3 sleep and the reset button has no effect. There is a similar behavior when shutting down ( the LED is off, fans rolling, reset not working ) but not when restarting. Also the power button does nothing in Mac OS (on my macbook it would bring a sleep/restart/shut down prompt). I don't think this is even related to USB. EDIT: my hack: ASUS P5K , E8400, 4GB DDR2-800, 8600GT, 2 SATA WD 500GB HDDs ( one trough SATA, one in a eSATA enclosure through the JMicron on my board), 2 SATA optical drives and some random stuff: (a PCI TV tuner, an old and unused modem, an old and unused floppy)
  7. Well Chameleon RC1 wouldn't mind booting from USB. I tried it too on my HDD Enclosing. It boots fine from MBR, but on MBR/GPT hybrid, well it mixed up everything. Not even FreeDOS would see the HDD well. I would recommend block copying a install DVD on a HFS+ partition and then installing Chameleon, but I don't know if it will boot pre-patched releases like iPC (probably will). Also I think you would have a lot of trouble finding a way to put a Windows install on USB. I personally had.
  8. ACPI (DSDT) Patcher for BIOS and AML

    just asking before I wreck my install: Does this work on ASUS P5K (Intel P35 + ICH9 +AMI BIOS)
  9. ALC88x 10.4.8 Kext

    Same here. Sound worked fine on 10.5.6. Tried adding AppleHDA from 10.5.6 to my /Extra. Now I don't get a kernel panic, but still no sound on 10.5.7 EDIT:Mentioning I have a ALC883 too
  10. I managed to get a Retail Leopard installation up and running with everything working for my box: ASUS P5K Motherboard (Intel P35/ ICH9) Nvidia 8600GT 256MB (using EFI strings) 4GB DDR2 JMicron JMB363 Attansic L1 Ethernet Realtek ALC883 Sound Chipset 500GB SATAII GPT-partitoned HDD + 500GB eSATA connected through my JMicron (this was hard to get it to work at the same time) SATAII DVD-RW+IDE DVD-RW through JMicron I use PC_EFIv9 and keep all my extensions in /Extra/Extensions.mkext Since I first installed Mac OS X (Kalyway 10.5.2 on MBR) I had this issue: Shutdown/Reboot/Sleep/Deep Sleep all resulted in the fans and the HDD-s spinning maddly just like before booting and the monitor reporting no signal. Since I used DSDT Patcher the shutdowns and the reboots went nicely but I have the same problems with sleeping. When I try to go to deep sleep , after I am welcomed by the sound of the fans and I am forced to reboot PC_EFI tells me the sleepimage has garbage
  11. Hi! I just recently installed Leopard from the 10.5.4 Retail DVD and updated it to 10.5.6 using the combo updater. Then I installed the required kexts, efi strings, and PC EFI v9 by netkas. When I booted it up, after the smooth now (thaks to the efi strings) neat welcome video, I had a very big surprise: Before you begin connect your keyboard. I am using a PS/2 keyboard and a USB wireless mouse. The mouse works well, but for the keyboard I tried tons of ApplePS2Controller.kext, but none worked. Maby the kext is not compatible with 10.5.6? I don't have a USB keyboard at hand unfortunately. Can somebody help me? P.S. My other Kalyway 10.5.4 install has no problem with the keyboard.
  12. I installed this kext on my fresh PC EFI v9 Retail 10.5.6 DVD install to recognize my PS/2 Keyboard along with my USB Mouse, but nothing happened. After the neat Welcome video it still said to connect my keyboard. My mouse is OK but my keyboard is down. Tried everything but I still can't explain how my kalyway 10.5.4 install works with these You could use the keyboard viewer You activate it in System preferences>International
  13. core temp

    iStat tells you on a hackintosh only the HDD temp. Only on mac instalations with efi emulator it tells you other temps
  14. you need MbrFix. from windows's cmd do: <your path to MBRFix>\MbrFix /drive <your drive number> listpartitions note down your partition's number <your path to MBRFix>\MbrFix listpartitiontypes note down the partition type ID for HFS+ <your path to MBRFix>\MbrFix /drive <your drive number> /partition <your partition number> setpartitiontype <the ID for HFS+> everything without <> now you should be done pay extra atention to your partition number as you don't want to make another partition unreadable I haven't tested this but I think I spelled the commands right only do this if you have MBR not GUID
