  1. Reposted by bibbidy for Pep... Hi fellows!!! Some good news!!! I just made my Dell precision 690 recognize the disk attached to the LSI 1068 SAS controller!!!! With OSX86 Tools - "View PCI Device", i found that the id string was [1000:0054]. I edited the /System/Library/Extensions/AppleLSIFusionMPT.kext/Contents/Info.plist. Just go to /System/Library/Extensions/AppleLSIFusionMPT.kext and right click "show contents" will take you to the info.plist. I edited the file with the trial version of PlistEdit Pro. BEFORE <key>AppleLSIFusionSAS</key> <dict> <key>CFBundleIdentifier</key> <string>com.apple.driver.AppleLSIFusionMPT</string> <key>IOClass</key> <string>AppleLSIFusionSAS</string> <key>IONameMatch</key> <array> <string>LSILogic,sas</string> <string>pci1000,50</string> <string>pci1000,56</string> <string>pci1000,58</string> </array> AFTER <key>AppleLSIFusionSAS</key> <dict> <key>CFBundleIdentifier</key> <string>com.apple.driver.AppleLSIFusionMPT</string> <key>IOClass</key> <string>AppleLSIFusionSAS</string> <key>IONameMatch</key> <array> <string>LSILogic,sas</string> <string>pci1000,50</string> <string>pci1000,54</string> <string>pci1000,56</string> <string>pci1000,58</string> </array> Then be sure to run ALL sets of system maintenance tasks in OSX86 Tools ("repair permissions", "clear extensions cache" etc.). After that, all partitions belonging to the SAS disk showed on my desktop. I don't know if they are bootable or not. I don't know if a RAID will be recognized, as i only have 1 drive. Hope it works for you!!!!! Please let me know... Good luck. Pep.
  2. Precision 690 Ethernet Cards

    Hi iMaik, just install AppleBCM5751Ethernet.kext using KextHelper b7 and Voila!!! ;-) Works great for the built in ethernet. Now maybe you could help with firewire... Its recognised in IORegistry explorer, but "unable to get device memory...) --brian
  3. Hello all, I have a Dell 690 with NVidia 8800gt working full with audio and network. First, your hard drive needs to be connected to "SATA 2", the primary master according to the Dell. The HDD0-HDD3 ports are NOT working I am still working on that, but I have successfully had 2 SATA drives working on SATA2 (master) and SATA0 (slave) ports. (I have not tried 3 SATA drives, but it should work). I used IPC 10.5.6 with only the following options checked AFTER using disk utility to set up my hard disk with 5 partitions; first being Mac Extended, journaled and MBR, not GUID so I can boot Mac OSX Leo or Win XP etc...and have some space left over for virtual Mac or FAT drives. Check these only during CUSTOM setup: 9.5.0 Voodoo kernel, SMBIOS Resolver, the PS/2 keyboard fix (if you're NOT using a USB keyboard and mouse), and whatever Applications you want. This will at least get your system up and running, showing it as a big MacBook Pro with proper FSB and memory settings detected Out of The Box from About This Mac. I could not find a working kext for my stock NVidia Quadro FX 1300, so I bought a NVidia 8800GT and searched the forums to get it working (NVIDIA GeForce 8800GT 512MB (G92) GFX-EFI Tutorial). ((This is version 2.0 of the tutorial, updated on 5/31/08...)) Same with built in audio using AppleHDAPatcher. And network using AppleBCM5751Ethernet.kext. I'm still working on internal FireWire, but to get around it for now and get my Digidesign MBox 2 Pro working, I put an old Canopus AceDVIO PCI card in one of the longer white PCI slots, NOT the little PCI slot (not recognized OTB). I will include an email address at the end for anyone else who needs help with their Dell Precision 690 Workstation, finding kext or the "How To's". So far, Pro Tools 8 installed and works great! Still waiting for FCP to DL... Just a side note, it took almost a month to get everything up and running, but it IS very possible. I have learned a tremendous amount about Mac OSX, Windows, and Linux in the process, and am happy to say I would do it all again. I want to thank agra, cyclonefr, macgirl, netkas, karaakeha1, А.Д., and zephyroth for their original files, guides, and knowledge. Without them, this miracle would not have been possible. Much luv 2 OSX86!!! --bibbidy (brian) theboogiebarn@yahoo.com
