    Need More Firewire Ports?

    So the operating doesn't have any issues recognising a PCI firewire card? Mac Pro's not having PCI ports i would have thought that there would be no drivers to support a PCI firewire card. I guess my logic is flawed but i do not understand why this works? Anyone want to try and enlighten me?

    Need More Firewire Ports?

    Hi Everyone, I have been looking for a pcie firwire card for my hack pro. It would run an external drive, a focusrite liquidmix and an m-audio projectmix. Does anyone know of a particular card that is efficient and comes with drivers for OS X? Thanks in advance.

    Multifunction Mouse?

    Hey Guys, I was involved in a motorcycle accident a few years back which resulted in the loss of my left arm. Sort of sucks but what are you going to do? Anyway, to the point. I have a logitech G5 mouse which i use with windows for its programmable multi button function. Means i can actually use the audio applications i need to (i'm a sound engineer by trade). I just finished my hackintosh and am struggling to take advantage of the better operating system because i need a programmable mouse. I've searched through the site but not found anything about alternate drivers for my G5 or anything about an apple equivalent. Anybody have any ideas on what i could use? It only needs 4 programmable buttons. One each for control, option, command and shift. Thanks in advance for your help.

    Trouble loading Logic Pro 8?

    Thanks for the info. I've been looking at a few different guides. I think i might give it a go. It is best to stick with a 7300gt for the graphics? Where i but parts don't stock those anymore. Just wondering if i suppliment with another will it cause me problems. I am guessing it will and i should just take the time to get the e7300gt. cheers again peach.

    Trouble loading Logic Pro 8?

    So whats the advantage disadvantage of retail install. My main concern is whether it takes more skill/time to install. And once installed whether it will have less issues than a kalyway install.

    Trouble loading Logic Pro 8?

    Sorry Peach. I guess i took it the wrong way just because i do lack a little knowledge. And i think you are right about the re-install. I have logic working and loaded one of the demos. It will not even play for 3 seconds. Just jitters and then stops. Thats with the processor running @ 3ghz and FSB @ 1.3ghz. I would have exected a Q6600 with 4gig of ram not to have any such issues. I ran an Xbench test and came out with a total score of 198.45. And just with the computer running firefox right now i only have 2.1gig of system memory free. The weirdest thing though is that when i start up the computer sometimes it will start up quickly without issue. Other times it takes ages to load the operating system and then outputs a black screen until the computer goes to sleep, once it wakes the screen becomes normal. But often the Envy24 audio drivers i installed for my m-audio 2496 soundcard will disappear from system preferences. Then the next time i boot they are there. Guess i should have just gotten my mate to put the hardware together an then taken it from there myself. I guess its time to bite the bullet and go for a clean install. Would you recommend Kalyway 10.5.2 for an asus p5w-dh mobo? From all the reading i have done its been the most consistently used. I am assuming thats because it has the easiest install with least issues. Am i right? Cheers for your help again Peach and again i apologise for jumping to conclusions.

    Trouble loading Logic Pro 8?

    I know everything on a computer needs a driver. With the graphics card i did search the sites and find the solution and fix it myself. All i wanted was to be pointed in the right direction by those with the knowledge that i don't posess. It is not my fault that i do not have any knowledge of programming. I have never been taught how. Were you born with all the computer knowledge and skill you have or did you learn from others. By observing and asking questions? So am i not allowed to be ignorant of some things? Is it a crime to ask for help? And for your information i have used macs before without any issues such as those i have faced with the hackintosh. All i was after was some direction from those who had more knowledge than me. And not that i think you would care, i managed to sort the audio drivers all on my own. wow, isn't that amazing, without even basic knowledge. Must have been a fluke. Regards to you Peach.

    Trouble loading Logic Pro 8?

    i sorted it out by looking on the osx86.org site and found some one who had listed a link to how they sorted there card. And ended up downloading the efi studio application. And once i had run it everything was recognised. And i have now loaded logic pro 8 only to find out that i am not getting sound from the output of my computer. Does it just use the native sound card? So do i change the sound card by accessing system preferences and then clicking on soud? Logic showed sound levels within the application, i was just not getting any output, so do people agree that the issue must be the output being routed to the correct sound card???

    Trouble loading Logic Pro 8?

    My specs are as follows: -P5W-DH with Q6600 overclocked to 3Ghz and FSB @ 1.3Ghz -4 gig 667Mhz SDRAM (2x2Gb Kingston sticks) -Asus EN8500GT-S 512mb -M-audio auidophile 2496 using Envy drivers -160gig western digital system drive -320gig & 750gig western digital data drives -Antec Sonata 3 case with earth power 500watt PSU The System Install is Kalyway 10.5.2 updated to 10.5.4, as i mentioned earlier i did not do this install so i am not sure if it was done correctly. He used a how to guide from life hacker (http://www.lifehacker.com.au/tips/2008/01/25/install_os_x_on_your_hackintosh_pc_no_hacking_required-2.html) I am a complete novice with all computer hardware/operating system type work. Previously the best i had done before this was install a video card and some ram along with some audio recording hardware. So i know this must seem a stupid question but where do i download efi studio and once i have is the set up a step by step walk you through it operation or do you need programming knowledge? I have searched the forums for answers but there is so much information and so many different system variations i haven't been able to find the right information. Although i am sure its out there some where. I do hate asking if i don't need to. I know how annoying those questions can be. Thanks for your replies Peach
  13. Hey, I also want to build a Hackintosh and buy a legit copy of leopard to install onto the system. The parts im planning on using are as follows: - Intel Q9450 cpu (with arctic freezer pro 7 for cooling) - Asus P5W-DH mobo - 4 Gig of A-Data Vitesta 800 Ram I am stuck on a video card. The computer will be used for audio applications (Logic Pro 8 and Pro Tools 8) I am just after a card that will support dual monitors and uses a heatsink (after a very quiet system) for cooling. Any advice from those with similar systems or similar uses for their machines would be greatly appreciated. cheers in advance!

    PCI-e Sound Card

    If you are after a good sound card then i would look at the m-audio 2496. Great quality card that you can pick up for dirt cheap on ebay. Thanks to this site http://www.audio-evolution.com/drivers/ you can choose from otherwise useless audio cards. have to give thanks to all these great osx86 programmers making hackintosh a viable reality.

    Trouble loading Logic Pro 8?

    I would have installed myself but my friend had kalway already and i was not sure where to obtain it myself. Plus my left arm is paralysed from a motor cycle accident so putting the hardware together was the biggest issue to me. I regret not doing it myself now. Can i just ask if a retail install has less bugs than Kalway and if so is it much harder to get it to install is it? Anyway i have checked and Core Image comes up as "software" and Quartz Extreme as "not supported" any idea what could be wrong and how do i go about rectifying? Also i have overclocked the Q6600 to run at 3ghz and the FSB to 1.3ghz, the cpu does have an after market cooler but i would love to find a program that monitors system temps etc? Cheers again! Really appreciate you putting up with my noob questions and schooling me in the art of osx86.
