    Problem with graphics

    I'm having the same problem as you. I'm missing the plist files for the video drivers. Right now I'm typing this in a fixed res with no video acceleration. I thought it was a pandoras box problem but I'm not so sure now.
  2. OK! I'm confused! ....and it doesn't happen often.... but where is the installer for trunk 1187? I cant find it anywhere in the original post even though its in the title of the actual post.
  3. Use cartri's bios and follow the directions with the bios. Couldn't be simpler! The bios will also run windows flawlessly. been using it for months without a single KP min win but especially mac. www.cartri.net

    Best Hackintosh motherboard for i7

    Go to www.cartri.net and look in the bios table there. Find one of the i7 boards that best fits your needs with the 889a audio chip. The bios is not out yet but when it does come out it will be the closest thing to a real mac you cam make!
  5. This website did nothing to my iphone. I went to both the original site and the one posted on the front page and it did nothing. Am I missing something? 3gs 32gb with 4.0.1
  6. I finally fixed my long standing sleep issue! If anybody is having a problem getting their ud3r board to auto sleep, try diableing the EIST function in the bios. Then do a full shut down and disconnect the power from the supply for about 20 sec. When you turn on your system again you should have sleep operational. I was finally able to get rid of PleaseSleep! Now I have to get Voodoo Power Mini working or cartri will put the speed stepping in his bios -which ever comes first!
  7. Damn! Thats not it. I checked and it does report 0. Thanks for the try though. Back to the drawing board.
  8. Thankss for the advice but unfortunately I have a pioneer drive: PIONEER DVD-RW DVR-112D: Firmware Revision: 1.22 Interconnect: ATAPI Burn Support: Yes (Apple Shipping Drive) Cache: 2000 KB Reads DVD: Yes CD-Write: -R, -RW DVD-Write: -R, -R DL, -RW, +R, +R DL, +RW Write Strategies: CD-TAO, CD-SAO, CD-Raw, DVD-DAO Media: To show the available burn speeds, insert a disc and choose View > Refresh I did a test to see if it was the ide drives causing this problem but it had no effect when I disconnected them from the mobo and restarted from a cold start.

  9. Hey guys, I am using the cartri .7m bios on my ud3r! I have a q9550 and a gtx 260 as well. I've had some random panics but I'm hoping that they are due to my overclocking (I've turned it down a bit since then and had no problems). I still have a problem with automatic sleep. I've tried a new system on a fresh HD and still no go! I've heard others making this work, but I think I have a hardware issue. I had this problem when I was using a DSDT file as well. The program Please Sleep has made automatic sleep possible but I want to get as perfect a setup as possible now. No, I'm not running Istat menus or any other system add-ons. I have unplugged all usb devices as well. I tried with a fresh install following all the instructions in the PDF. Anybody with any clues?

    Chameleon RC4 is out!

    I don't know if this has been suggested, i even did a quick search in this topic but didn't find it. What about putting a radio button for switching between 32 bit and 64 bit kernel flags? Also one for booting consistently in verbose mode? I think that would add a bunch of functionality for average users as well as power users. I'm sure it would be easy for someone who knows what they are doing to insert the values into the com.apple.Boot.plist file via the pref pane.
  11. Thanks for the sympathy. I stayed up late last night and found a workaround. I read in another tread about someone with the same problem. Someone suggested to them that an application or a process was keeping the mac from sleeping then they had a link to an application called PleaseSleep. It solved all my problems! I now have a fully functioning Hackintosh!
  12. Anybody having trouble getting automatic sleep working? I can manually put it to sleep but auto sleep only turns off the monitor and nothing else. I have 10.6.2 on a ud3r with a q9550 and a GTX260. I'm using the DSDT file from the pack with fake smc 2.5. I have tried all the bios settings for suspend, C2 & 4 states and eist as well. I've also enabled and disabled every extension in the extras folder. Everything is working except for auto sleep! Anybody have a clue? It's especially frustrating when I installed a copy of 10.6 on another drive and that sleeps well before the 10.6.2 update, now it does not!
  13. Good for you! I did the same! After years of buying mac hardware I said enough! I just gave my in-laws my mini and built myself a hackintosh for $600. One that would cost me over 2 thousand in apple hardware. I have a ud3r with a q9950 running at 3825 Mhz and a GTX260! Suck on that Apple!
