  1. Are you certain this would stop the random freezes?, as far as im concerned, this is for the PCI Configuration Begin bug (so, related to IOPCI kext, which doesnt let you boot at all), the AppleACPI file on the other hand, has nothing to do with that, and is what fixed my freezes i believe. Try replacing just the AppleACPI Kext from the zip i uploaded before (check the page before this one).
  2. Try replacing IOPCIFamily and AppleACPIPlatform with the ones from DP1, get em here http://tmayr.com/files/ACPI-PCI-LionDP1.zip They're located in /S/L/E, report back if your installation works, i know it stopped random freezings here, but i did not go trough standard installation methods .
  3. It seems that Lion runs just fine with DP1 Kexts (Courtesy of farhanito, thanks!), so far, no random freezes, i am not sure about the install as i cloned my other hackintosh HD on it , WIFI is a bit wonky, i cant connect to WPA2 Personal networks easily, i have to Disable Airport > Add Network Manually > Apply > Enable Airport, but meh, other than that..., just fine
  4. Hello, I was wondering if anybody could provide some help or insight into getting Snow Leopard to run on this laptop. The spec is as follows: Dell Inspiron 15r (N5010) CPU: Core i3 370M (2.4ghz, busratio=18 according to http://ark.intel.com/Product.aspx?id=49020 ) RAM: 3GB DDR3 Shared Dual Channel Memory (2gb + 1gb, some of it dedicated to graphics) HDD: 320GB 5400RPM Sata HDD (AHCI in the BIOS) Chipset: Mobile Intel® 5 Series Express Chipset (HM57, http://ark.intel.com/chipset.aspx?familyID=43177 ) Graphics: Intel GMA HD, 1366x768 Wireless: Dell Wireless 1501 802.11 g/n (I assume this is a bcm43xx card) Bluetooth: Dell Wireless 365 Bluetooth Internal (2.1+EDR) mini-card Ethernet: I've determined that this is RTL8103e What I've tried: I first tried booting from the latest tonymac [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] (2.7 I believe), which would boot just fine, and allows me to complete the install of 10.6.3 (retail dvd). After the install, I booted the HDD install using [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] again, and got to a desktop with the following: working - sound (presumably with voodoohda from [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url]) not working - keyboard trackpad ethernet (not recognised at all) wifi (not recognised at all) bluetooth (not working, but it's visible under USB hubs on the system profiler) video (only had 1024x768 as an option) So I figured it might just need tonymac's [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] to get most of the bits working, but first I tried to install the 10.6.6 combo update. During the install of 10.6.6 (last 2-3 minutes of install) it crashed and gave me a "Please restart your computer" screen. After this, the HDD install wasn't bootable, so I played around a bit more with reinstalling using tonymac, but kept coming up against this problem, so gave up with that. I also tried all sorts of combinations to specify the arch, busratio, legacy, -x, -f, -v, etc. Next I tried nawcom's CD (3.1), which again let me boot the retail dvd, but this time it apparently picked up wireless/wired/sound and pre-patched the installer so I could select kexts. As this is 10.6.3 installing and there isn't any i3 support until 10.6.4/10.6.5, nawcom also suggested the 'legacy_kernel' package, but I had issues with this failing the installer, so after a couple of tries decided not to use it. When I got the installer to eventually succeed, and booted the HDD install again using nawcom (and selecting the legacy_kernel from the boot cd), I had the following: working - keyboard (voodoops2) trackpad (voodoops2) sound (voodoohda) not working - ethernet (listed as a device, and recognised presence of ethernet cable, but didn't function at all) wifi (not recognised at all) bluetooth (not working, but it's visible under USB hubs on the system profiler) video (only had 1024x768 as an option) nawcom automatically installed kexts and things to /Extra/ so I tried updating to 10.6.6, as I was running on legacy_kernal and wanted some mach_kernel, the installer for 10.6.6 went fine, so I rebooted was unable to boot the installation after this, even with the nawcom cd, I had issues with the boot freezing around DSMOS, and constantly got stuck at this message: ACPI_SMC_PlatformPlugin::start - waitForService(resourceMatching(AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement) timed out even though I had a NullPowerManagement.kext in /Extra/Extensions/ I also tried all sorts of combinations to specify the arch, busratio, legacy, -x, -f, -v, etc. So I'm not sure what I'm missing here. This laptop seems like it should be able to run Snow Leopard easily. I've previously successfully Hackintoshed a Dell Inspiron 1525 with everything working, and I'm writing this from a custom i5 Hackintosh build that I setup. So I'm clueless.
  5. Exactly, {censored} happens i guess, it is supposed to be a "good" link, it comes from a trusted source, but its not public yet... I guess that'll teach me (and everyone who tried to get the Combo Update ) to wait for official and public links or use the System Update We'll see what happens with my system the next few days, so far so good, again, dont use the link if you find it somewhere else, use either a link from apple.com webpage (found THERE) or use the System Update.
  6. Get [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] from tonymacx86.com and run the AppleHDA Rollback option.
  7. TO EVERYONE THAT WAS UNLUCKY ENOUGH TO GET THE SWCD LINK I was lucky enough to come across http://forums.mactalk.com.au/11/94580-maco...are-update.html Basically, get the update from the Software Updater, go to /Library/Updates/zzz061-9753 and run the Update Manually, should update without issues.
  8. Exactly the same that happened to me
  9. You can just change the pmversion to 21 i think
  10. Boot using -v flag (or verbose) and take a pic
  11. Im in the same boat, trying to find out wtf
  12. Same here, with System Update and Combo You will need to remove SleepEnabler. Basically what it says, enable Sleep , check this thread for a link to the Kext's web and an longer explanation there on how to get it working on 10.6.5
  13. CPU temperature in iStat

    Im kinda lost here, with voodoopstate, fakesmc and rest of the kexts vanilla, i believe im getting more accurate temps than on Windows 7 (actually i really believe that Windows 7 bloats quite a bit my temps), but what really bothers me is, when i open a game, the temp goes up to 80, which is normal on Windows, but suddenly, it drops to 62 and stays there, not going up... So its about 62 vs 83 on a T5450 (OSX vs Win temps), which i believe is a huge difference, hope someone can give me a hint on where to start at, . Current Setup: T5450 3GB DDR2 965 Chipset (M1530 Laptop) 10.6.3
  14. Install NTFS3G, it works with 64bits, BUT, you need to get 64b Macfuse beta, look for it, it should work, i do it that way .
  15. CPU temperature in iStat

    Works great , M1530 with T5450 and no major issues, changed the SMC ID to match what im supposed to mimic (Macbook pro 3.1), fixed the tjMax (85), and everything seems fine .
