  1. Blackosx, thank you for all of your time spent helping everyone, and leave knowing that all of us old school ds3l's are envious of your new rig. I was having trouble with the audio too, but there is a simple solution. Donwload "kext helper" and the latest support files from blackosx. Then drag the 10.6.8 audio kext into "kext helper", type system password in, and hit apply. This has worked for me in 10.6.6 and 10.7.
  2. Here ya go, as requested. I don't think I edited this one much. I did have to add some stuff to my org.chameleon.Boot.plist to get 10.6.8 working, let me know if that would be helpful.. Good luck! <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd"> <plist version="1.0"> <dict> <key>SMbiosvendor</key> <string>Apple Inc.</string> <key>SMbiosversion</key> <string>MP31.88Z.00C1.B00.080209154</string> <key>SMmanufacturer</key> <string>Apple Inc.</string> <key>SMproductname</key> <string>MacPro3,1</string> <key>SMsystemversion</key> <string>1.0</string> <key>SMserial</key> <string>INSERTYOURSHERE</string> <key>SMfamily</key> <string>MacPro</string> <key>SMboardmanufacturer</key> <string>Apple Inc.</string> <key>SMboardproduct</key> <string>Mac-F42C88C8</string> </dict> </plist>
  3. I installed Lion without a hitch, and is working great after patching the audio kext w/ kext helper. I used blackosx guide to install retail 10.6.3, upgraded to 10.6.8 via updates, and then followed this guide to install Lion http://tonymacx86.blogspot.com/2011/07/xmo...x-107-lion.html I already had an existing osx install, so I didn;t have to mess with [url=&quot;http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/&quot;]#####[/url]. I used the audio kext provided in the support files, same one that worked with 10.6.8. The install went without any hiccups or problems, booted first time and it's great. Im using an ep35-ds3l, q6600, 8800gt. Hope this can help someone.
  4. I dunno if I can wait, I may take the plunge and purchase it from the app store, see if it installs on my backup. i wonder if I install it on my backup if I could then re-download it on my real osx partition free of charge, or if its a once and done. Blackosx, I've followed your guides and my install went very smoothy, running 10.6.8 without a hitch. THANK YOU for your efforts, it allows us n00bs to participate. Love my hackintosh!

    10.6.8 update breaks App Store

    I am also having problems with the mac app store. I've done the previous steps outlined with the <key>EthernetBuiltIn</key> <string>Yes</string> and PciRoot=1 but I am still having the same error message. The guide I followed to install 10.6.8 had me remove the com.apple.Boot.plist and replace it with org.chameleon.Boot.plist. Could this be problematic? Here is my org.chameleon.Boot.plist file, I'm new to this and not sure if I did something wrong. <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd"> <plist version="1.0"> <dict> <key>Kernel</key> <string>mach_kernel</string> <key>Kernel Flags</key> <string></string> <key>arch</key> <string>i386</string> <key>DropSSDT</key> <string>Yes</string> <key>GeneratePStates</key> <string>Yes</string> <key>GenerateCStates</key> <string>Yes</string> <key>GraphicsEnabler</key> <string>Yes</string> <key>Graphics Mode</key> <string>1024x768x32</string> <key>Timeout</key> <string>5</string> <key>ShowInfo</key> <string>No</string> <key>Theme</key> <string>Default</string> <key>EthernetBuiltIn</key> <string>Yes</string> PciRoot=1 </dict> </plist> I'm using an ep35-ds3l with a q6600 and 10.6.8 is otherwise running awesome, no problems. I want to get this working so I can attempt to install Lion, and apparently the app store is going to be the only way.. Any help is appreciated.

    Annyoing Firefox issue

    Thanks for the response. When I red X close the application, I can't then bring it back up/re open it without quitting and then restarting. And it's not minimized to the right of the task bar. Again, its a minor annoyance that I can live with, but I would like to get rid of it.

    Annyoing Firefox issue

    Whenever I red-X close firefox on my iPC 10.5.6 install it appears that it closes, but it still has the little blue light under the icon meaning that it is still running. That is not a big deal, but it pisses me off that when I click on firefox again, it does nothing! I have to right click the firefox icon, then hit quit, then I can open it and use it as usual. It's a minor problem, but I have to do it EVERY TIME I want on the internet. Help is appreciated, thanks for reading.
