  1. Hey guys, I know that Snow Leopard has a different kext for x86 and x64, but how do I use the 64-bit one? I want to use my sound card which there is a 64-bit kext for, but can't seem to get it working... Maybe it isn't the problem of x86/x64?? Thanks
  2. kalyway 10.5.2 to 10.5.8

    A combo update can get u from 10.5.x to 10.5.8. Therefore, all you need is a combo update to 10.5.8. Hope this helps!
  3. Cant get to installation screen.

    Ok, so I've finally made the tutorial...after a long time. Sorry for the delay, but here's the link: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=179592 Good luck all!
  4. Hey everyone! So here's my easy guide to DSDT patching... I use the following...so you should get them. If you know another way please post: Either mac running virutally through windows, or simply a mac A Mac distro A bootable USB -> that's what I used, not sure if you can use a DVD (most USBs are bootable). The REAL bios for your computer The programs I list as I go Ok, so you’re going to need your bios files....if I linked you to this post chances are you are using an MSI bios. Here's the one I used... http://www.msi.com/index.php?func=download...mp;prod_no=1590 So, get the newest bios version, and make sure your computer has it installed too. Next, you need to get fassl's patcher from here... http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=133683 Thank him for that release, not me Then, get the bootloader of your choice. Different ones work for different motherboards. I used chameleon v2... http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php...=159885&hl= Finally, get the mac distro onto a USB or DVD (in compressed format). Now that you have all the necessary software, it's time to get it working! Using the DSDT patcher, first make a modded bios by inputting the REAL bios file. Be sure to choose the appropriate settings from the side pane. Then, using the DSDT patcher, browse the new modded bios. Choose the settings you need and create a DSDT.aml file. Rename it to DSDT.aml if it isn’t already. Ok, now place the DSDT.aml onto a DVD/USB along with the compressed distro and the bootloader. Time to switch to your mac or virtual machine. Open the DVD/USB and copy all files to your desktop. Then go to disk utility and select your USB, format it to mac journaled and make a single partition on it (dont think the partition part is necessary, but i do it anyway). Then go to the restore section. Now, as the source, place your compressed file (mount it first-by double clicking on it). Place the USB into the destination area. Ensure that “Erase Destination” is not ticked, then click the “Restore” button to begin the process. When done, it is time to install a bootloader. If you have a DVD, then I don’t know how to do this, but if you have the chameleon installer above you can just run it and use the USB as the destination. Once done, place DSDT.aml into the “Extra” folder of the USB (which was created by chameleon). Finally, restart your computer with the USB in the port. Hold the button to select boot options (commonly Esc, F2, F11 or F12). Then, select USB from the list of options (alternatively you can just make it no.1 in the boot order in your bios). Type –v and boot into the USB. If all works, good job! If it didn’t post below what your problem was, and I’ll try to help. Good luck! (I know it is a long, frustrating process). Hope to hear from u soon
  5. Hey everyone, I installed leopard 10.5.5 (iatkos) and got all the drivers up. But, at the end of the day when I shut it down the monitor turned off but the computer seemed to still be running. My hardware is as follows: G31M3-f (FSB-1600) mobo 9500GT 1gb graphics Anything else u need?

  7. Cant get to installation screen.

    I did all you said, put it in the extras folder, and booted into the usb. Up popped the chameleon bootloader. I typed -v and hit enter. I saw unusual text (not in the same format as usually). Then it got further, and further, until... I saw the installer. I am so happy now. Thank you so much for all your help verdant. I am especially happy because I didnt have to flash my bios. For all who have a G31M3 (FSB-1600) mobo, ill be posting a tutorial with files on how I did it due to my extremely happy mood. I modded DSDT.aml to do so, and i'll show you how soon. Thanks again verdant for all your help, you put a lot of time into this, and I truly appreciate it. THANK YOU!
  8. Cant get to installation screen.

    Is it possible to use ACPI (DSDT) patcher by koalala to patch my bios? If you know how, please tell me, although i suppose i patch the 120 file, then use that with the .exe to boot and patch the mobo. Thanks! EDIT: With the patcher i was able to not only create a modded bios file, but i was also able to create a dsdt.aml file. it was patched, but now i dont know what to do with the dsdt. isnt this a safer method. What do i do now? Thanks!
  9. Cant get to installation screen.

    Ok, I have figured that if the max FSB value is 1.3 GHz, then the following: The file is actually called AFUD4234.exe with a 120 file called A7528IMS.120. Im supposing i put the modded bios and the AFUD4234.exe onto a USB, boot into it and hope it works? What can i do if this fails? Will my mobo be bricked or is there a way to restore it? Is there something i can do now, so if it fails i can restore? Is it true that any G31M3 mobo can be used with the 7528 modded bios? Is patching the bios no longer an option due to unavailability of files? Thanks!
  10. Cant get to installation screen.

    I saw this: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/lofiversi...hp/t163142.html I saw someone say, that it doesnt matter which if your mobo is one of about 5 diff models, as long as it is G31M3. So, does that mean I can use the 7528 flasher from the website you gave me, as long as my mobo is G31M3? Thanks! The files are: AFUD4281.exe and A7528IMS.350 But, it might be the other bios file, im not quite sure yet.
  11. Cant get to installation screen.

    i think i found it... i believe it is the one with version 3.50 for the bios. but, if i am wrong, can i experience problems? or no, because im not installing it? also, it gives me a .exe file and a "350 file". What should i do from here? Ok, heres all the info i have: I have uploaded 2 screenshots SANDRA testing my hardware. According to it, my maximum FSB value is 1.33 GHz. Now, id be happy to mod my bios, but i want to be 100% sure it will work. If you cannot guarantee this, then what are my options for a patched bios file?
  12. Cant get to installation screen.

    ffs, i dunno which of these is my mobo: http://www.msi.com/index.php?func=proddesc...mp;prod_no=1470 http://www.msi.com/index.php?func=proddesc...mp;prod_no=1590 They are very similar, but i dont want to get the wrong bios. Any way to find out?
  13. Cant get to installation screen.

    How do you extract it from the bios? it asks for a location of the original .aml file, but i dont know where it is located. Do you know? yes, but i still need a bios file in order to extract the dsdt file. i dont know where this is.
  14. ACPI (DSDT) Patcher for BIOS and AML

    I really want to patch my dsdt.aml file, but i dont know where to find the dsdt file, or the bios file. i understand that im supposed to browse for it, but where is it? Thanks!
  15. Cant get to installation screen.

    I have read, but i dont understand where to get a .aml file, which im supposed to patch. Im supposed to put in a .aml file, but i dont know where im supposed to get it from any ideas?
