  1. I have my XP install on a separate IDE drive (OSX is on SATA)....when i choose 81 I can see the win partition, and I select it to boot it - but the machine just reboots at this point... any ideas?
  2. or you can add to the Boot.plist something like this <key>Timeout</key> <string>2</string> or some value you want in the string - this gives you a chance to mash the keyboard and add in boot commands should you need to. And with the value 2 the booter hardly sits there for any time at all....boots straight through.
  3. OK so I managed to get update.sh to run and build /Volumes/EFI/System/Booter/Extensions.mkext with still the curtain of death coming down.... Do I still need my kext in /Voumes/EFI/System/Booter/Extensions - even though i built Extensions.mkext out of these (I moved them from /Voumes/EFI/System/Booter/Extensions to /Volumes/EFI/Extensions when I installed update.sh I will post the log if the warnings in there are meaningful....remember these are the same kext i had been booting from successfully before too.... The only way I can seem to boot with this method is to make sure I still have all kext in /Volumes/EFI/System/Booter/Extensions - even if /Volumes/EFI/System/Booter/Extensions.mkext exists and is built from contents of /EFI/Extensions Do I need to completely remove the /Volumes/EFI/System/Booter/Extensions folder all together if I have Extensions.mkext already in 'Booter' folder? update log is kextcache: ��36��\a: couldn't get volume UUID warning: kernel extension /Volumes/EFI/Extensions/ACPIPS2Nub.kext is missing dependencies (including in cache anyway; dependencies may be available from elsewhere) warning: kernel extension /Volumes/EFI/Extensions/ApplePS2Controller.kext is missing dependencies (including in cache anyway; dependencies may be available from elsewhere) warning: kernel extension /Volumes/EFI/Extensions/ApplePS2Controller.kext/Contents/PlugIns/ApplePS2Keyboard.kext is missing dependencies (including in cache anyway; dependencies may be available from elsewhere) warning: kernel extension /Volumes/EFI/Extensions/ApplePS2Controller.kext/Contents/PlugIns/ApplePS2Mouse.kext is missing dependencies (including in cache anyway; dependencies may be available from elsewhere) warning: kernel extension /Volumes/EFI/Extensions/ApplePS2Controller.kext/Contents/PlugIns/ApplePS2Trackpad.kext is missing dependencies (including in cache anyway; dependencies may be available from elsewhere) warning: kernel extension /Volumes/EFI/Extensions/dsmos.kext is missing dependencies (including in cache anyway; dependencies may be available from elsewhere) warning: kernel extension /Volumes/EFI/Extensions/IntelCPUPMDisabler.kext is missing dependencies (including in cache anyway; dependencies may be available from elsewhere) warning: kernel extension /Volumes/EFI/Extensions/SMBIOSEnabler.kext is missing dependencies (including in cache anyway; dependencies may be available from elsewhere)
  4. hehe...nice...can you build me a personal one to run on me before I sleep each night? munky, maybe I was stupid and didnt run as root....I will try again - 3rd time lucky!
  5. hmmmm....... I definately had update.sh in /Volumes/EFI right next to 'boot' I couldnt find any 'update.log' to see what was going on, and definately no mkext was created in /Volumes/EFI/System/Booter It would get to the apple logo, afetr a few secs the grey curtain of doom would come down telling me to restart in 5 languages Also in /Volumes/EFI is /Volumes/EFI/Extensions which contains my kexts I just cant figure out what I am doing wrong :-{} permissions error on update.sh maybe?????
  6. I just tried again with update.sh but no cheese! I am happy with the way it is for now - nothing wrong with a working system!
  7. Hi munky, I tried to use update.sh but it just gives me chinese writing at the apple logo and says I need to reboot....i boot my external backup to see what update.log says - it is not there and no mkext has been made in /Volumes/EFI/System/Booter update.sh resides in /Volumes/EFI I have my kexts in /Volumes/EFI/Extensions Any ideas? I will go back to the old way for now.... Cheers
  8. yeeeee f*^cking haaa! You rock munky! HARD! I just modified a 7600GS hex string from HERE and boom, she works! No more NVinject for me!!!! Now onto my onboard audio....not so important since Its my studio machine and I already have 56channels of IO - but its needed if i want to quicky listen to iTunes on crappy speakers while a session is open....plus an excuse for me to have some more fun! Maybe next we have a way to have all kext, mkext and boot.plist contained secure in the EFI so the install is pure, unadultered vanilla? OK OK Ill settle down I really like your booter munky - the others seem painful and dont work for me - maybe you could get ~pcwiz to include an installer in OSx86Tools for your way???? Or an installer of some kind next? Well done mate....you da man!
  9. So for future installs can I just put the new 'boot' in with my usual efi_boot directory, then instead of cp boot2-turbo.bin /Volumes/EFI/boot i can now do cp boot /Volumes/EFI will that work? - I have a few machines to get leopardised this way now
  10. I will let you know.....I am trying so hard to find an EFI string for my NVS 285 because EFI studio etc doesnt have this card....so its gonna be trial and error while I mod existing geforce .plists to see which one is compatible....have you got any idea if nvs 285 is like geforce 6600? There is so little info on this card around here! Thanks again bud!
  11. haha...thats too funny munky I was just coming over here to see if EFI strings would work qith your boot method (I have tried pc_efi and chameleon but I cant make them work without -f flag!) your way is so clean and simple - and now it support EFI strings without me asking!!! nice!
  12. AppleSMBIOSEFI for Tiger and Leopard

    Thanks Dabluest! Thats all that was really pissing me off - I can live with the rest of the info missing as it doesnt affect performance, and I have FCP running like a dream with my Decklink Extreme HD2 card! Cheers Sam
  13. AppleSMBIOSEFI for Tiger and Leopard

    Hi, I have edited AppleSMBIOSEFI.cpp with Xcode.....recompiled...and installed the newly built kext. It does load as my serial number does change to the correct value I set in AppleSMBIOSEFI.cpp...however my Model still say Mac, Model Identifier is blank, and in the top of system profiler it says "Sam Hannan's SomeModelyyyyyyyyyyyyya-c-imanufaturer" - in my MBP it says "Sam Hannan's Computer" in this same place....can I change something to get rid of this garble???? Any idea's why the model and board-id I set is ignored? I did try a few versions of AppleACPIPlatform.kext from 1.0.3 through to current 1.2.1 (as suggested by someone earlier in this thread) but none made a difference... Any ideas? Thanks S
  14. I have usb and Legacy USB both enabled - still no joy....like I said - i have another USB keyboard that works just fine in BIOS, it just that little hussy Slimline Alu Apple one that I want to work that wont!
  15. Thanks guys.... I had a bit of a look around, and it seems this keyboard doesnt play nice with my XBX2 BIOS I have updated to the latest BIOS and still no joy.... It just means I need to keep a PS2 KB plugged in to hit enter to boot....PIA but it works for now...I just hope INTEL sort their Sh*t out and get it working in the future - ASUS boards seem to have no problem and other are fine also... Does ANYONE have this working, or is it like I think - that the MOBO doesnt support this KB in BIOS.... Sam
