  1. I went back to using the built in ethernet port, and found a PlatformUUID.kext made for my board here: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=183637 I added my UUID to that and volá, now it works.
  2. D945GCLF2 Snow Leopard

    After a couple days of expirimenting it seems that PlatformUUID.kext, from ugokind's post, was the key. Putting the uuid in the boot.plist does not seem to matter.

    so is anyone else having Time Machine problems with this setup?
  4. I too am getting the "can't find en0" popping up in the logs. Turned off LAN in bios, TM did not work. Added a PCI Ethernet card, and that did not work either. TM just sits in my menubar. Mocking me.

    Ok, I got my time machine backup sorted out. Transferred all my stuff to my SL HD, but it seems to have brought over many leopard kexts as well. I hunted down all the ones that were giving me problems but left the 4 listed by bcotnam. - IOATAFamily.kext - fakesmc.kext - NullCPUPowerManagement.kext - VoodooHDA.kext After getting some permissions problems sorted out everything seems to work by booting arch=i386 and turning HT off. Shutdown- works Restart/sleep – does not work. Restart just shuts down, sleep shuts down everything except the motherboard, and I could not get the computer to resume (just had to restart it). - Full resolution with dsdt.aml with some artifacts - Audio and LAN work fine. This might be due to the migration from leopard, but I can not get Time Machine to work. It keeps saying “waiting for backup” and when I select “back up now” it does nothing. This might be due to me replacing the IONetworkingFamily.kext in leopard with one from TOH release (as per this thread ).

    I've been trying to fix my time machine backup for the past two days, but as far as I can tell shutdown and reboot seem to be working fine. I'll test sleep in a bit when TM is working again.

    Ok, I have tried following the best directions available on this thread but I am stuck at "Still waiting for root device" I loaded the SL install DVD onto an external USB drive, used Chameleon RC3 to make it bootable, booted to the USB drive and installed SL to Hard Drive 1. After SL installed on HD1 I booted back into Leopard, added the kexts and DSDT from ugokind's post. Repaired permissions, tried to boot into HD1 (the SL drive) with -f -x -v and got this when it stopped. Can anyone tell where I went wrong? waiting for boot volume with UUID 2C16030C-C237-311C-AC98-98A5DEEEC148 Waiting on <dict ID="0"><key>IOProviderClass</key><string ID="1">IOResources</sting><key>IOResourceMatch</key><string ID="2">boot-uuid-media<string></dict> com.apple.appleFScompressionTypeZlib load succeeded USBMSC Identifier (non-unique): 20043513400EFDE11EEF 0x781 0x5150 0x10 USBMSC Identifier (non-unique): 1200E000022127469 0xd49 0x3000 0x1101 Still waiting for root device Still waiting for root device Still waiting for root device I hope this helps in the troubleshooting process. EDIT: I tried it bcotnam's way, deleted the Extras folder and put those 4 kexts in S/L/E, still no change. I get the same error listed above. I went back and took out the UUID from ugokind's bootlist and then SL booted up just fine.
  8. Your macbook has a much faster processor. The on board video is the problem with these Atom boards. they are just not up to handling high-def video. And because of the limitations of the PCI connector I am led to believe a PCI video card would not help matters much (at least that seems to be the consensus on this thread. If you have a spare PCI video card laying around your are more than welcome to try it out and get back to us.) You can always try Plex on your hackintosh, at least to me it seems to handle 720 better than VLC.
  9. Try MSIwindOSX86 it works great with the intel Atom boards, and I upgraded from 10.5.4 to 10.5.5 from software update.
  10. Ok, I've re-read this post and I couldn't find anything about it. If I missed it I apologize. Has anyone had success getting the s-video port to work on the D945GCLF2 (dual-core) model?
  11. Put together the duel-core atom board and loaded msiwindOSx86.iso, ran the graphics kexts from the tutorial in the first post, then ran the USB Fixes 2 in 1. As of last night everything, except for the microphone input, was working great!
