  1. Your computer is barely compatible. I wouldn't waste my time. GMA4500 does not support QE/CI, AR5007EG is completely incompatible. If you're happy with just full screen resolution, and wired ethernet, be ready to try a retail install + DSDT. Iatkos is not the best option for you, due to your graphics card. Try booting with cpus=1 and -x on the iatkos boot prompt, probably will get you through the installation process, but there would be still a lot to be finicked with to get a half decent system going on. Remember, OS X is not Linux.
  2. HPET.kext and kernel panic

    Repair permissions and fix the caches with -f.
  3. Have you tried the usual boot switches? First, try booting with -f, then -x, then -x cpus=1
  4. [How to] Intel GMA 900 done right: full QE/CI for leopard

    The reason it doesn't work is because you selected patched gma 950 kexts on your installation. Reinstall, and don't selected anything on the video/graphics tab, then add the kexts provided in the thread and it should work. Cheers
  5. Here's a thread I found on the subject. Seems like the solution would be replacing the whole logic board. http://forums.macrumors.com/archive/index.php/t-1085213.html Not sure how you'd underovolt your GPU; CPU's can be done with CoolBook, GPU's would probably involve ROM hacking, and I'm not sure how you can do that. Of course it would be a lot easier on Windows, you could use RivaTuner. Try dumping the ROM with some tool on Windows or Linux and then asking someone for help on how to patch it.
  6. First of all you should try a complete reinstall of OS X. Then, if that doesn't work, try checking the temps on the graphic card and then cleaning the ventilation system of the computer; that involves opening it up, but since it's out of warranty, that shouldn't be a problem. If that doesn't work, you have a defective graphic chip, undervolting may solve the issue, but its not a permanent solution.
  7. nVidia GeForce 8800Gtx DEAD

    AMD 5870, or any of the 6xxx series, except for 69xx.
  8. AMD Phenom II x4 840 6 Core?

  9. I'm not quite sure, but it might be due do the memory in your system being over the officially supported for the system your smbios is set to. What model number is your smbios set to? (e.g: MacBookPro6,1)
  10. Stupid mistake, now cannot boot

    try booting from an ubuntu livecd/usb and check if there's something wrong with the bootloader's configs
  11. SLI Card Configuration Possible?

    Somewhere in this forum i read that as of 10.6.6 there is no native fermi support... But whatever, I guess it does work indeed.
  12. SLI Card Configuration Possible?

    That will work. Only drawback is that there is no Fermi support in OSX, so GTX460's would not have QE/CI support.
  13. There's no need for dsmos. Fakesmc replaced the decrypters.
  14. Snow Leopard CS (Hazard) update?

    You don't have to copy all the old extensions. Just use [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] and it will copy only the necessary files.
  15. Do you have Disabler.kext or AppleNullCPUPowerManagement.kext? Try adding one of those and booting with "-v arch=i386" as your problem seems to be related to power management.
