  1. I updated from 10.6.4 to 10.6.6 via software update, and had some problems booting. I ended up having to replace my IOUSBFamily.kext and IOUSBMassStorageClass.kext with the 10.6.4 versions. All was good, USB mouse and keyboard were working fine. Then I tried to open up Skype and realized that my USB headset isn't showing up in the audio sources list! Would the old IOUSB kexts be responsible for this? Or should I be using 10.6.5's IOUSB kexts?
  2. Update... I found "win 7 alias" on my chameleon partition... Windows probably messed something up there, but I have no idea how to check what :-/
  3. I installed windows 7 earlier next to my Snow Leopard install that I've been using steady pretty much since Snow Leopard came out. I used EasyBCD to use Windows' bootloader to let me switch to SL, and when I did, my wifi wasn't working. I haven't been able to find out what chipset my D-Link WDA-1320 uses any more specific than Atheros, and none of the Atheros drivers I've found seem to be fixing it... Any clue what's up?
  4. Thanks for the attempts, it ended up being the USB cord I was using.. Whoda thunk?
  5. The weird part is the drive works 100% fine on other computers, Windows 7, XP, and Snow Leopard. The computer with the problems is my Leopard hackintosh. It's a brand new 1TB Seagate FreeAgent. I've tried formatting multiple times, FAT32, HFS, NTFS, they all seem to have the same problem. I thought it might be something weird going on with the /dev/*disk* node, but the permissions on that are just fine. Other external drives work fine on this computer, including my 750GB 'morespace' (forget the brand..) When I mount the drive, I can usually see the files on it for a while, but as soon as I try to write, I get 'permission denied' and I suddenly lose read access! Then I can't dismount the drive without manually -force'ing it with hdiutil ls -a, even with sudo, gives me NO output, not even . and .. ? (seventoes)-(jobs:0)-(/Volumes/Bigdrive) (! 523)-> ls -a (seventoes)-(jobs:0)-(/Volumes/Bigdrive) (! 524)-> sudo ls -a Password: (seventoes)-(jobs:0)-(/Volumes/Bigdrive) (! 525)-> hdiutil eject -force /Volumes/Bigdrive "disk1" unmounted. "disk1" ejected. Anyone know what the hell is going on? Weirdest problem I've ever faced....
  6. So I followed Lifehacker's guide to installing Snow Leopard, and I have my USB set up with the SL install DVD on it, but when I try to boot into it, it panics with the message "Should have 2 Threads, but only found 3 for Die 0", relating to AppleACPIPlatform. I have the AHCI mode on, and booting with cpus=1 and cpus=2 didn't help. Anyone got any tips?
