  1. Hello Friend, Do you have any further instructions? I sure would love them!
  2. Alienware m14x i7 2630qm gt555m

    Do we have a DSDT yet? If not, I have successfully done a DSDT before, on a different laptop model. Maybe I'll find some free time soon to do the m14x.
  3. Asus U6 Problem

    Your kernel panic looks like a USB issue. 1. Try booting in safe mode, by typing '-x' (without quotes) in the boot arguments command prompt. 2. If that doesn't work, are there any "Disable USB" options in the iDeneb installer? 3. If that doesn't work, it may be the DSDT.aml file.... Your U6g may not like like the U6v DSDT.aml file. You may need to create a DSDT.aml file for your U6g. Explanation: 1. Why do we need to use special DSDT.aml files? ASUS puts special lines of code into their bios. These lines are called "Alias" lines. These lines can't be parsed by OS X. 2. Solution: Someone on this forum has created a program that "fixes" your DSDT. http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=133683 ("-contains CPU Aliases fix ") I suggest making your own fixed DSDT file, based on your actual bios. If anyone else has suggestions, please let us know.

    I don't remember where the boot loader choice is in the options. However, it looks like the DSDT.aml file is being loaded. Your new error is probably caused by ICHx. In the installer, look for something like "ICHx Fix" or "ACHI Fix". It sounds like you may be having trouble finding the installation options. I missed them the first time too. On one of the installation screens, there is a "Customize" button. I think it is to the left of the "Install" button. Look at each screen the installer shows you very carefully, and you will eventually see it. Edit: Here
  5. Asus U6 Problem

    Ok, I went back and read my old posts from when I was having issues. You are seeing the "Buffer Headers" error. The problem is definitely your bios. iDeneb can install with one of two "boot loaders". One is called "Chameleon", and the other is called "EFI". You want to choose Chameleon. Once iDeneb is installed (and you have rebooted the machine), you can then place the modified DSDT.aml in the root partition of the OS X partition. To get DSDT.aml on the root partition, I use MacDrive . MacDrive does require that you have Windows installed on another partition on the same machine. There are other ways of copying the file, but I am unfamiliar with how to do that. Other resources on this forum should be able to help with that. Once DSDT.aml is in the root partition, reboot, and the buffer-headers error will hopefully be gone. (If you get other errors after that, we will worry about drivers, etc)

    I will run the iDeneb installer in the next few days and report back with answers. Yes. Go ahead and try this first.
  7. Asus U6 Problem

    You seem to be having some trouble posting, so I will assist: The error you see is being caused by one or more of three problems: 1. The U6 bios is incompatible with OS X. The good news is that it is possible to add a "fake" bios file to the OS X hard drive/partition, which OS X will use to boot with. (You do not have to change your real bios at all) More information here: I have already made a fake bios for my ASUS U6V. I do not know if it will work with your U6G, but you should try it. The fake bios file is here: http://tinyurl.com/5lzymw a. Install OS X. (Make sure to choose the Chameleon bootloader instead of EFI). b. Once OS X is installed, copy the DSDT file to your OS X installation hard drive/partition. c. Reboot 2. It could be that you need to select a NVidia driver during OS X installation. 3. Make sure you select a ICHx "fix" in the OS X installation options.
  8. Decompiled original Apple DSDTs

    I'd like to see if I can make my PS/2 keyboard and trackpad work. (I've tried all known fixes) How can I identify the PS/2 devices in the MacBook DSDT files? Also, here is my DSDT: http://preview.tinyurl.com/pcwvxs

    Plug in a USB keyboard and mouse temporarily.
  10. Asus U6 Problem

    Do you have a U6S or a U6V ? If it is a U6V, the modded bios file is here: http://tinyurl.com/5lzymw If either of you have a U6V, and your keyboard/touchpad are working, please post here, and tell us which distro you used. Also, if you have a U6V and are having problems, post here and I will try to help.
  11. I have read many posts on this forum that are some variation of: "My PS/2 Trackpad and keyboard functioned perfectly while installing. However, once OS X is installed, they are no longer recognized." What I want to know is, if one's PS/2 devices work during installation, does this mean that the installation DVD contains kexts or settings that support his PS/2 devices? Do OS X installation DVDs run something other than normal OS X, such as some modified Linux/BSD? (I am experiencing this issue with iDeneb 10.5.5 v3. I have tried several kexts found on these forums to no avail) Here is a humorous photo to entice informed responses
  12. iDeneb v1.3 10.5.5 Released!

    I am dating a supermodel and one of her pinky toes is a millimeter longer than the other. How can I fix it?

    DON'T get an ASUS U6V.
  14. iDeneb v1.3 10.5.5 Released!

    I am unable to find the PS/2 Fix in the installer options. My touchpad and keyboard work fine during installation, but they cease to work once the OS is installed.
