  1. I had the same issue going to F10; solved after some fumbling around by powering off router and modem then restarting them.
  2. Have you checked your BIOS setup to match Blackosx's? What you are describing can happen if ACHI and 64 bit are not set properly. See Blackosx's BIOS configuration in the install guide for the complete details.
  3. Up and running 10.6.1, except for sleep. The Cham update I posted earlier I fixed by using a terminal command to unhide all hidden files then I simply dragged the Chameleon boot file to trash and installed Blackosx's install package boot file. Works great! The reason for the error was indeed a different file name for Chameleon. My file is named "Chameleon", thanks to all who correctly pointed out the reason I couldn't get RC3 Boot to load.
  4. Chameleon v2 RC3 r658 Having some problems with the terminal command, copied here: cd /Users/tom/Downloads/Support\ Files\ for\ Blackosx\ SL\ Install\ v1.7/Chameleon\ RC3\ boot\ file tommies-imac:Chameleon RC3 boot file tom$ cp -f boot /Volumes/Cham/ cp: directory /Volumes/Cham does not exist tommies-imac:Chameleon RC3 boot file tom$ Bolded line is ??? Any Advice?
  5. Re: Chameleon 2.0 RC3 r658 I'm running r640 on 10.5.8. Has anyone with the EP45-DS3L motherboard updated to r658 prior to install of 10.6? If so, any issues with change over?
  6. I'm back; about 18 hours after a failed SL install. I did a successful install using the CD Boot 1.02; almost anyway. Following the install, I went thru, as expected, an automatic reboot due to the CMOS reset. But then it really got interesting. Chameleon would not reboot SL or my 10.5.6 or 10.5.8, Vista 64 installs; nothing. The Boot CD 1.02 would not load. Fortunately I had a copy of DE's generic boot CD which would boot and I reloaded 10.5.6 which gave me a platform for experimenting with Chameleon. After installing r640 with a few generic kexts I finally got into my 10.5.8 install sans audio and with a generic video card. Anyway, I finally did what I should have done first, checking the BIOS settings. Apparently, the BIOS re-flashed(?) to default settings, non-ACHI etc. It's a miracle anything worked. After resetting the BIOS configuration, I restored my latest Chameleon Settings and everything came back perfect; did have to reset the network connection but that was no big deal. Unfortunately, the SL install went south as I needed to space to re-install 10.5.6 (my generic boot won't load anything higher. Good luck everyone!
  7. Blackosx & various contributors have done a great job putting together a great guide for installing SL on EP45-DS3L, and judging by the number of pages its got quite a few followers; to the point that I think people are jumping in without doing their homework first. The PEGP option needing to be checked even when it doesn't appear in the IO RegistryExplorer has been discussed several times. If you want to minimize your challenges and time spent in trial and error, first read all the posts here and from Blackosx's site for Dsdt.aml install, linked on the first page.
  8. [Guide] Using DSDT with the Gigabyte GA-EP45-DS3L

    I used BJMoose's tip for editing the "AboutThisMac.strings file". Works great!
  9. What motherboard and video card are you using? It would be a great idea to add this to your signature so those who might be able to help know where you are coming from........ I love a challenge as much as anyone or I wouldn't be here now; but: Per WSJ-Mossberg: "Apple's Snow Leopard operating system improves upon its predecessor, writes Walt Mossberg. But it isn't a big breakthrough for average users, and it isn't a typical Apple lust-provoking product." I wonder if the view is worth the climb?
  10. [Guide] Using DSDT with the Gigabyte GA-EP45-DS3L

    Just installed the latest 10.5.8 update, went smoothly (I'm inching my way closer to being comfortable with a 10.6 install). But I did notice a few interesting messages in the system.log: Aug 24 08:55:50 localhost kernel[0]: GFX0: family specific matching fails Aug 24 08:55:50 localhost kernel[0]: ACPI_SMC_PlatformPlugin::pushCPU_CSTData - _CST evaluation failed Aug 24 08:55:50 localhost kernel[0]: ACPI_SMC_PlatformPlugin::registerLPCDriver - WARNING - LPC device initialization failed: C-state power management not initialized Should these be overlooked or should I make adjustments to correct my install, if so what??
  11. [Guide] Using DSDT with the Gigabyte GA-EP45-DS3L

    Success with DSDT install on second try. Problem reading my graphics card correctly first time. On the second attempt using ACPI Patcher I selected PEGP (even though it is not present when using IORegisterExplorer and changed settings to "DUAL DVI-TV/HC1". Also updated to change in CMOS for 10.6 Another great guide from Blackosx. I will update my sig soon, but want you to see where I was coming from.
  12. I boot into win 7 and Vista with AHCI without any problems. Don't know if this is the reason, but I use the 64 bit versions of both programs.
  13. When using bonjour to play itunes from another mac, it works but after playing 5 or 6 songs I get the following buffer error (from system.log): IOAudioStream[0x6743500]::clipIfNecessary() - Error: attempting to clip to a position more than one buffer ahead of last clip position (1,228)->(2,427). Any suggestions?
  14. QUOTE (zangieff @ Aug 13 2009, 09:51 PM) The other issue i have is that i have 2 hardrives 1 with windows and the other with osx. Windows only work with the ahci disabled & osx only works when its enabled. The only way i can boot at the moment is to change the settings then press f12 to select the hardrive to boot. My memory may be bad, but don't we have the option with this board to save multiple BIOS settings and select which one we wish to use when booting? An extra step or two. Not sure why this would be necessary; perhaps due to different Windows versions? I'm running Windows Vista 64 just fine with the same BIOS settings that Blackosx recommends for this install.
