  1. many thx MacUser2525 , you pointed me in the right direction. finally, i used cpuinjector kext that already done the job for the cpu (or i guess so) and edited a smbios.plist from the chameleon extras for the rest (ram, bus speed). it looks like i'm done now whith this hack book pro ! :-) dunno what i could do better, except maybe triying to fix the raid hardware not recognized yet (LSI Embedded MegaRAID), but i need it under windows, not so much whith the mac so far. yeee-haaaa !! ;-D well. i can't say. everywhere i go i see that those procs are supposed to be quadcores. but under windows and osx you can see 16 cpus in monitoring. and the guy who sold me that also talked about a total of 16 cores for the two procs. so i don't really have an opinion on this point (this time i trusted a friend instead of building the unit by myself). sorry i can't fill better information.
  2. yep, the xeon E5530 is a quadcore with 2 units / core. so the two of them shows up as 16 processors both in win and mac activity monitoring. the value in the "total number of cores" is "8" so i guess its correct. but the type and ID fileds says i own a mac mini ! ;-D well, this should be better something like "mac pro" or did i loose something ? thx geiman : this works. i can see the 16 graphs all together. how could i help the system to understand those are xeons right there, not "unknown" dual cores ?
  3. greetings all hackintosh addicts. i'm a bit new to this, is there any solution for snow leopard to recognize properly my dual Xeon E5530 procs ? for the moment i only got this in "about this mac" : 2x 2.46Ghz processor unknown. i don't really need a cosmetic fix, i'd really love to make it fully recognize them so i could finish whith my hack pro station ;-) 16 cores would be greater than just 2 i guess .... any detailled explanation would be greatly appreciated ! many ths in advance.

  6. thx for proposal, Vladthebad, i'm planning to install snow leopard on supermicro X8DA3 mobo. could you point us to the global method you used and the tools needed please ? many thx in advance mate :-)

    trial boot osx/winxp/windows7

    Thanks for helping, but can't really understand your point ? what do you call OSX boot menu ? Darwin bootloader ? at least i finnaly found a solution, i posted it in this thread : http://forum.insanelymac.com/index.php?showtopic=144153 hope this helps. peace, DuBmastah
  9. Houbos, there is a possibility for you to boot vista also, fixing your BCD problems, or do a trial boot OSX, WINXP and VISTA (or even WINDOWS 7) using darwin as bootloader, just the same way. i had explanations in how to do so in this post : http://forum.insanelymac.com/index.php?showtopic=144153 i'm glad this could help you anyway peace, DuBmastah
  10. this is mostly for people that already have a dual boot osx/win xp and want to had a vista (or windows seven) partition also. that might also help people having problems booting vista in multi boot. first of all : no matter what bootloader you will use, your pc will search for it in the ACTIVE partition of your HD, wich means you can switch from one bootloader to another by just setting the right partition active. if your OSX partition is active, then your (first) bootloader will be darwin, if it's the windows partition that is the active partition, this will be windows bootloader. this means you can forget about chain0 and such things as darwin IS able to launch OSX, XP, VISTA and even WIN7. this post is all about keeping darwin as bootloader and launch directly any of those OS whithout having to enter a choice in any other bootloader next to darwin. now suppose you already have a dual boot osx/xp (if you don't know how to do this, maybe you can find some help in my other post HERE ) and wan't to install vista, this post is for you. you can follow some explaination here also if you already have a trial boot whith vista but have an infinate loop beetween darwin and vista bootloader, or else if you have a trial boot but can't launch vista from darwin due to vista bootloader problems (tipically, vista boot hangs for some reasons). as this post is dedicated to noobs (like me), i will give you some solutions to do the job whithout having to enter command lines orso. but if you're a power user, you will find you could achieve the same goals using built in tools and command lines. please feel free to add alternative solutions then. the tools we will use there : Acronis disk director mainly to switch partitions to "active" when you're in windows, not neccesarely needed. Neosmart EasyBCD donationware, this will help in editing or repairing or rebuilding vista BCD FIRST of all, make a backup of your win xp bootfiles (boot.ini, etc...) as vista will modify that in your xp partition and you will be sent to vista bootloader anytime you try to boot xp. Now here we are : you found some place in the hardrive and finnaly managed to instal vista (or windows 7) in there. most of the time after this, you will boot on the vista partition, enter vista bootloader and wil have no choice to get back to OSX. as far as i remeber, vista lets you choose beetween vista itself and the old version of windows (XP). choose to boot into windows xp and have a look to your computer : check the letter for your VISTA partition (E for exemple). at this point, you can also choose to instal easyBCD on your windows XP as this could help if you encounter boot problems later. note : if for some reason, you're not able to boot into vista at this point, just leave the next step and stay under windows xp... reboot again and go straight to vista. install easyBCD and launch it... when you're in there, put VISTA as default OS, and give it the letter you found under XP (E in this exemple). if you're confident in the victory, make a timeout of 0, if not, leaving a few seconds is not a bad choice at all, you will then need to fix it later). apply, save, re-check everything is ok, etc... note : you could have an entry there for your OSX system in case you reboot whith vista partition active and wan't to get into OSX from there, just in case... DO NOT REBOOT ! 1) restore your original xp boot files (you just need to copy the original files back to your xp partition and remove the "boot" folder that vista installed there). if you experience problems at this point, i guess this is well documented everywhere, sometimes you will need to copy ntldr back there, sometimes not, some say you also have to copy ntldr in vista system32 or in windows xp system 32 folder, you'll see later if this file is missing at next win xp reboot. don't panic you even can copy it back from windows xp cd as well as far as i know. 2) just set your OSX partition active NOW (then you will be booting in darwin next time). reboot... now you're back in darwin bootloader. - check if OSX is loading properly (it will be always by default, there is NO working solution as far as i know to set another os as defaut in darwin as the active partition is always the defaut boot partition in darwin and you need OSX partition to be the active one). - check if XP is loading properly (if you have the missing ntldr issue at this point, don't worry copy it back to the root of your win xp partition, copy it to system32 also if needed but i'm not sure it is). - check if vista is loading : there, you will normaly be sent to vista bootloader. you won't see it if you choosed a timeout of 0 in esayBCD a few step backwards and if you don't see it, and vista boots properly, you're done. if vista is loading : thats a good point, goes in vista, SET VISTA PARTITION ACTIVE (else easyBCD will not recognise the bootloader as it will be darwin), launch easyBCD, set timeout to 0, save, exit, etc...SET BACK OSX PARTITION ACTIVE, reboot, you shoud be done. if vista is not loading : (that's where the people that have problem whith the vista BCD should rejoign us), don't give a damn, just follow those steps : 1) boot into windows XP. 2) set VISTA partition active (or easyBCD won't find the vista bootloader) 3) install easyBCD if not done already and launch it (maybe you will have a few error messages, just ignore them). 4) edit your vista bootloader and check if the letter for the vista partition is correct (should be E in this exemple). 5) if the letter is correct, you may want to rebuild the vista BCD, follow the easyBCD doc if you're not sure what you're doing 6) verify that vista is the defaut boot OS, set timeout to 0 if you feel you're a lucky guy, and so on... 7) save, exit easyBCD and DO NOT REBOOT at this point. 8) set OSX partition as active using disk director or windows disk manager or whatever method you want. reboot... you should be ok now. if you choose timeout 0 in easyBCD boot options, you won't see vista bootloader anymore. if you choosed another value, just do the last steps once again and change it to 0 then DARWIN will be your only visible bootlarder and will let you choose beetween OSX, windows XP and VISTA (or windows 7) ar startup. personnaly, i experimented all this whith windows 7 that as a similar boot system as vista. good luck, hope this helps and that i did not forgot something writing this. please feel free to correct me or add other informations to this tuto. peace to all.

  11. lo there, i want to trial boot osx, winxp and win7 i installed win7 the last and after that i restored the mbr to a previous state to get back chameleon (and be able to boot osx). then chameleon leave me the choice to boot osx or xp : win7 boot option does not launch the os, chameleon sees the third partition, but when you choose it, you're stuck on a black scrren as if the partition was not bootable. i guess win7 uses the same boot system as vista and would not boot whithout its own bootloader somewhere. unfortunatly, i used easybcd to try to remove the win7 bcd loader and it worked perfectly, that's why i'm not able now to boot win7 previously, i was able to boot win7 when choosing win xp in chameleon : win 7 installed his own bootloader on the xp partition also, so the trial boot was almost ok. in chameleon when i choosed leopard (partition 1) it was working direct to osx, and when choosing xp (partition 2), it went to a win7 bootloader asking me if i want to boot in win7 or old version of windows (win xp then). at this stage i'm searching for a solution to make my third partition (win7) bootable so i could launch the os from chameleon. any idea to edit the win7 bcd whithout having the possibility to boot in a vista compatible os ? many thanks in advance.

    Récapitulons un peu SVP

    quaza, pourrais tu preciser les grandes lignes de l'update en 10.5.6 a partir d'une ideneb v1.3 stp ? de quoi vas t'on avoir besoin, quels fichiers devra t'on re-installer, etc ... genre un mini tuto ca le ferait grave. par ailleurs, quel interet de passer a 10.5.6 ? une meilleure compatibilité ? des nouvelles fonctions interessantes ??? merci d'avance.
  13. yes of course. you could get this here : HERE thanks to kabyl and his great work.
  14. thanks for trying to switch those ricoh card readers back to live ! i'll give a try tonight fingers crossed. will i be able to read cards from my phone or my camera ? gast, can't stand waiting ;-)
  15. YEEEEEE-HA ! found the solution by myself : 1) just enter the modded bios 2) switch the IDE settings back to "enhanced" 3) no more error under win xp 4) osx86 still working (so far) !!! thanks kabyl, u're GREAT ! :-)
