  1. Apple Keyboard driver for Windows

    Thank you all for this thread. Tnx for newest drivers
  2. ATI Radeon HD pkg installers 10.5.x & 10.6

    m2 please:P Maybe bios mod will help but that can damage you card. You have to have two pci express slots to repair this and backup graphics card.
  3. Fixed sata/ata controller for 128GB limit for any ata Hard Drive and not working sata. 1. install your mac on usb hard drive (U have to disable USB 2.0) or install osx from another mac (look at this forum for more) 2. After u install your osx copy this file (delete old one) to /system/library/extensions. 3. Now put you HD to your computer and boot with -v -f IOATAFamily.kext.zip
  4. Its great news. X8DAL-i -> this is the cheapest board with x16 for graphics. I have to ask. It is possible to overclock processor? I know usually you can't but sometimes it is possible. Why do I ask about something like that? Becouse this is so expensive to get fully working xeon. It cost 1000-2000$ vs E5506 for 280$. i7 can be overclocked to 3,8 Ghz with got cooling it won't be noise. It will be 10% less performance vs 2xE5506 but 2x cheaper.
  5. Saphire 4850

    http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php...5477&st=300 -> in first post " 2. You may get a black screen when changing resolutions. >>FIX FOR NUMBER 2: Download and install this package (http://rapidshare.de/files/45735159/Natit_with_4850_bios_inside.pkg.html). Reboot, and you should be able to change resolutions without any problems. " Maybe that will help. U can allways flash your bios with the bios that you can find there. But this is another story u have to read about flashing before u will do it.

    I think noo/ As I know there is no possible to make any dual monitor configuration at 4850. But is there any hope? I also got 4850, and this hurt me a lot...

    Dashboard is quick like all thing, but Im afraid that if I buy a game or app there will be performance like ATI 2600XT
  11. A Simple Guide to the 4830/4850/4870/4870x2/4890

  12. External dvd I think is the most simply way.... U can add your dvd device ID to kext for recorder.... but I dont know what, and how to do it.
  13. I have got 320gb.... I tried to resolve this problem in so diffrent ways: I give up. -> tried to delete applegenericata...kext something like that -> still 128gb -> used software SpeedTools did not work, Get error about IOATA bus is blocked bla bla -> used http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=88335 -> still wait for root device I also have got Sata but OS X cant recognize it 6300ESB south brige (based on ICH5?) I have got SE7525GP2 motherboard. Kalyway 10.5.2. install.
  14. I have got problems with, HD, Music Card, Graphics Card, network.... But first I have to say this is may first post here, so Hi all! First problem is my most important Hd is not working becouse every HD is see as 128 gb, I have got 2x320gb *non raid, 1x 500gb. For example: On 500gb I have got 200,100,80,90, Gb paritions, OS X only see one 100gb. On 320gb I have got OS-X and Vista,xp, On windows are on 2x39gb partitions, OSX on 35gb partition, But OS-X cant see free space on this disk. -------------- Second Problem--> temporary working:) Music card after some time give me a lot of strange noise like its to slow for playing music, Music card is going to stammer. Music card is broken, because only one output is still working. -------------- Third problem I have got one HDMI LCD monitor and one VGA CRT monitor.... CRT monitor is not seeing by OS-X (second display connector) --------------- Fourth problem and really important Network card after 10.5.6. is not working, Im not sure when it stopped working. The problem is that network have to run automatically after restart of my computer, or after power go down..... Problem is that network is not working after restart, I have to go to network in system preferences and set to manual, after that I have to type everything, and than switch to DHCP. ------------------ My spec is 2x xeons 3,6ghz SE7525GP2 with 6300ESB southbridge 4x1b 266mhz ram ATI 4850 SB Live 5.1.
