    QE_CI Exotic Patch

    Worked for me with Club3D HD4890 1GB, many thanks!
  2. Dual Core E2180 GA-G31M-S2L 2x2048MB DDR2 PALIT 9800GTX+ My question - will this 9800GTX+ work without any problems with Snow Leopard? I'm getting a chance to buy this rig for a really low price, and as i'm not afraid about mobo, i just don't know about this GPU (didn't have any problems with my old 9800GTX without "+", but as far as i know, gtx+ could make little bit more problems). This rig is suppose to be very cheap, because my only and biggest concern are 1080p movie rips on my sweet 23" DELL. Best regards, Daniel

    How about HP 5320m?

    Hi, as in topic - is there any chance to install 10.5 or 10.6 on this cute little 13,3 inches {censored}? http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechS...g_R1002_USEN#A3 I'm getting one in next two or three days (with Core i3 350 2.26 and 4GB DDR3), so i'll be VERY VERY happy, if i could make a hackintosh from this one ;> Best regards, Daniel

    Randomness. Worst Windows OS?

    Well, that's the reason why you think it's crappy OS. Use it for something more than playing games/watching movies, and you'll realize that Vista is pretty damn good OS.

    Why do torrent download faster in Windows?

    No, i've noticed exactly the same. I mean speeds are "ok" according to transmission, but... it's damn f.. slow comparing to windows, i can't even download one HD720 movie over night. And i'm using private trackers, so no chance for 'probably there are no seeds or something'.
  11. E8400 changed to Q9550 from sig - no problems at all http://img353.imageshack.us/img353/738/obrazek1qk1.png
  12. HARDWARE: INTEL Core2 Quad 3,6 GHz Q9550 Socket 775 Gigabyte GA-EP35-DS3L - AUDIO: Realtek ALC888/S/T - ETHERNET: Realtek RTL8168B/8111B NVIDIA GeForce 9800GTX 512 DDR3 256bit PC-800 DDR2 8GB (4x2048MB) Kingston HDD S-ATA II 320 GB ST3320620AS PREPARATION: 1. Get the iDeneb 10.5.5 Software And that's it, just one DVD Image, and nothing more. 2. BIOS Settings: HERE is great instruction by weeksauce12 about setting up similar P35-DS3L, but it's working here as well. LET'S GO: 1. Install iDeneb 10.5.5 Software Just boot from previously burned DVD, and go straight to Disk Utility. Select MBR Partition type, and create only ONE partition in any size you want (HFS+), and left the rest unallocated for now. In Customize menu select Languages if u want to. DON'T, under any circumstances select any nvidia drivers, we'll do it later. I didn't also choose any sound drivers, cause they won't work now eiter. Ethernet is working OOB, so skip them too. Generally, there is not much to choose from. Get SMBIOS 800 if u want. No kernel needed, iDeneb has it already. 2. First run After first restart - right after installation - run your OS with '-x -v' commands, it'll get you in safe mode. 3. Drivers First let's run the GPU. I used beriguu method (click here), and it's working great. Only thing - i got NVDarwin 1.2.4, but i don't think there is any difference. Working flawlessly with 9600GT too, no problems at all. Audio - thanks to THe KiNG i got my audio fully working (click here). Just use Desktop ALC888ST kext from his thread. Ethernet - as i wrote before, it's working OOB, no need to do anything. 4. Have fun Now you can just sit down, and update your OS X with Software Update, nothing will crash after restart etc. VISTA ULTIMATE: First, get yourself a bootable image of Acronis Disk Director. Burn it on any CD/DVD you like, and boot from it. When you see the menu, choose Safe Mode, and create NTFS partition from unallocated space you left before. Reboot to Leopard, and use Disk Utility to make it MS-DOS FAT32 (dunno why to be honest, but it's working). Now boot your Vista DVD, and format partition to NTFS again. Go to the whole installing (next, next, next, finish) thing, and you're done here. Now use your iDeneb DVD again, but boot with -s mode. To get your Darwin back to work, just use commands: fdisk -e /dev/rdisk0 flag 1 write quit reboot And that's all, everything should work now. FINAL RESULT: Hope it'll help anyone, have fun

    nVidia 9800 GTX+ (Plus)

    Dunno about GTX+, but 9800GTX is fully working with NVDarwin 1.2.4. Didn't even have to change any drivers after previous 9600GT
