  1. I removed this from my config.plist: <key>Hide</key> <string>EFI</string> I used this key and string to hide the "Boot OS X from Internal UEFI" option shown on the clover boot screen, but when used with any revision higher than 2652 it will hide all bootable OS X partitions. After removing, it now shows the "Boot OS X from Internal UEFI" on the boot screen again, but also shows my bootable OS X drives. I still haven't figured out how to hide that option in the newer revisions of Clover. Hope this helps others with the same problem.
  2. I have been trying to update my Clover revision to a newer version, but any update past revision 2652 shows no bootable drives in the GUI. My setup is working flawlessly with current config.plist, DSDT, etc..., and has been for several revisions of Clover. I would like to update to a newer version because, from what I understand, there is better OS X 10.10 Yosemite support. I will be upgrading to Yosemite when it is released and want to be prepared. I have successfully boot Yosemite Public Beta 4 from Clover revision 2652 after a little trouble, and it seems to be working fine. From what I've read, there are fixes specific to Yosemite built into the later revisions of Clover. My setup is an Asus Rampage III Extreme X58 mobo (non-UEFI BIOS), Intel Xeon W3680 processor, 24GB Samsung DDR3-1600, HD 7950 3GB Graphics, 256GB Samsung 830 Series SSD. Thanks in advance for any advice.
  3. I also would like to know if this is possible? Shouldn't we just be able to add a key & value to the nvram.uuid.plist to enable it upon boot? By the way, iMessage also working great here! Thanks!!!!! Dil83

    HDA Wizard - Simple tool for AppleHDA.kext

    Ok, I was finally able to get my ALC1200 audio working via AppleHDA.kext, but I had to use a patched 10.6.0 kext along with the HDAEnabler contained within the plugins. I found this solution here: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=161430 I was also able to remove the HDAEnabler.kext from the plugins folder of AppleHDA.kext, and used the DSDT patch found in the **First Method** which also gave me working audio via AppleHDA.kext. If I try to use the patched 10.6.2 or 10.6.3 kexts on that post, I end up with no audio. I tried them all with HDAEnabler + AppleHDA combo, and DSDT + AppleHDA combo, and the only one working is the AppleHDA.kext from 10.6.0. I tried to patch numerous versions of the original AppleHDA from 10.6.2-10.7.4, but audio does not work with any of them. For now I'm happy that I finally got rid of VoodooHDA.kext, but don't really understand why any AppleHDA.kext newer than the 10.6.0 version will not give me working audio?? Thanks, Dil83

    HDA Wizard - Simple tool for AppleHDA.kext

    The reason why I am asking for both is because I can't seem to find a working combination of DSDT edit and ALC1200 patched AppleHDA.kext. I've been stuck using VoodooHDA.kext ever since Snow Leopard was released, and I have tried countless .kexts and DSDT edits to get audio working using AppleHDA.kext. Since the board stefano has is similar to mine and he has a working solution, I wanted to see how he got it working. I have no problem with DSDT editing although I use the Method MCDP instead of Method DTGP in my DSDT's. One more thing, my clean untouched DSDT does not have any audio section in it at all, so I cannot just change AZAL to HDEF, and then add codec info to the end. If someone else has the Asus P5Q-EM motherboard, and I am wrong about there being no audio section in the DSDT, please let me know. I do appreciate you "holding my hand" on this Gringo, as I was unsure where to find the plist and xml files I needed for ALC1200, so thanks for your help with that! I will try patching my own AppleHDA.kext and try every ALC1200 DSDT edit that I've found so far, and will post back with the results.

    HDA Wizard - Simple tool for AppleHDA.kext

    Hi stefano.85, Can you please post the ALC1200 HDEF entry in your DSDT? Also, can you upload your patched AppleHDA.kext for Lion? I have an Asus P5Q-EM that also has ALC1200, and I cannot get audio working using AppleHDA. Your help will be very much appreciated!! Thanks, Dil83
  7. I've heard that there have been some major problems with using LG DVD drives with OSX in the past, and recommend you use a Sony Optiarc DVD drive. I have also heard that installing/booting from a MBR format requires a special modified OSinstall.mpkg(if you google it then you can find it easily). Your best bet would be to change your DVD drive to a Sony Optiarc, since these drives seem most compatible, and install SL on a GUID formatted Hard Drive. I would assume from your post that you are trying to dual boot SL and Windows from the same hard drive, but in my experience you should use a separate hard drive for each OS in order to prevent these problems from occurring. But as I said before, using the modified OSinstall.mpkg should allow you to dual boot as you want to. Hope this helps

    [Guide] Asus P5Q-EM

    I had been searching for an answer, but now I have finally found out by just trying it out myself. I have OS X Leopard 10.5.6 installed and working perfectly (aside from the audio) on my ASUS P5Q-EM mobo using an EFi-x module and the 1406 dsdt modded bios. I am triple booting windows vista, windows xp, and OS X Leopard on my machine with a E8400 3.0ghz intel core2duo, 4gb ram, three 500gb hdd's, and an EVGA GeForce 9800gtx (Only because there is no support for my gtx 260 yet). I had to use the 1406 modded bios (0202 modded bios also worked, but wanted a more recent bios version) to get it to install from the leopard retail install disc, and also to get it to boot from the hdd leo is on. Couldn't get audio to work even with the audio kexts posted in this forum. Will just get an Efix compatible usb audio card. LAN works fine without any drivers. Hope this helps out others that are also searching for answers to this question. UPDATE! I put a cheap $5.00 usb audio card that I bought off ebay on my system and the audio works perfectly now. Never did get any alc1200 kexts to work on my system. I'm definitely happy with this solution though.

    EFI-X on G45 Intel Chipset ?

    EFI-X on G45 Intel Chipset ?

    Did you ever figure out if it EFi-X will support the g45 chipset? I have an ASUS P5Q-EM and was wanting to try this also.
  11. Hello everyone, I have a dell vostro 200 with a Foxconn G33M02 motherboard, an Intel Pentium Dual Core E2160 1.8ghz processor pin modded to run at 2.4 ghz, 2 gb of 667 mhz memory, an EVGA GeForce 8400 GS 512 mb, and am going to use a pci ethernet card with the realtek RTL8139D chipset. Has anyone had a successful install with a system similar to this using boot 132? If so can you please leave me detailed instructions on how you accomplished this. (Note: I have successfully installed the Kalyway version, but would like to be able to update through apple.) I also used SlimBuild Preboot.iso to install a retail copy of leopard on my vostro, but it loops on the "do i want to transfer my data" portion of the install. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!
