  1. SL on a EVGA 680i SLI Mobo?

    I am sure it can, plug in the usb and when the first boot screen comes up press ESC, the boot list will come up and it's under Hard Drives (wtf, I know.).
  2. Hi fellas, let me explain my situation, and what I am asking... I have a EVGA 680i SLI motherboard, which has been notorious for not working with hackintoshes. It seems a handful of people somewhere have somehow managed to get 10.5 working on theirs, but I certainly haven't. I am trying to install SL on an independent 60GB IDE drive. I have 4 GB of ram, an Intel Core 2 Duo and a 512MB Nvidia graphics card running Arch Linux, Ubuntu and Windows XP. I tried following lifehacker's guide (http://lifehacker.com/5351485/how-to-build-a-hackintosh-with-snow-leopard-start-to-finish) but to no avail. I also installed 10.5.1 on a dell latitude laptop I have sitting around, so I have that as a resource. Now, onto the actual problem I've run into: when I boot off the USB key I get a kernel panic almost immediately. It seems to be complaining of an unsupported CPU, even though it does the same thing with 1 kernel and 2 kernels. As well, has anybody gotten SL (10.6) or 10.5 running on their EVGA 680i? How did you do it? Thanks.
  3. [SOLVED]Dell Latitude D800 Ethernet Issues...

    EDIT: It Works!! It just took a few reboots and unplugs etc. and I'm in business! Thanks so much for making me look a little deeper into that. Now to write up how the f*ck I did it. Thanks again. I've done that multiple times (and once again just to check) and nothing (not copying the IONetworkingFamily.kext to the desktop and doing it, nor doing it right in the Library without copying it anywhere) works. It always returns me with a "System extension cannot be used" error, that it was installed improperly and cannot be used, and to try reinstalling it or calling the product's vendor for an update. I also tried doing this with that, which fixed that error but still didn't make the damn card work.
  4. So, after finally somehow managing to install Kalway 10.5.1 on my Dell Latitude D800 (After playing with god only knows how many customize options, partition formats, names and what have you) I got everything to work beautifully, the video is at the right resolution and is crisp and pretty, the sound works fine and as far as I can tell the other ports work great. All except for one: the Ethernet. Of course. So, I have done research up the wazzo (originally trying to find a solution for a 10.4.x install XD) but to no avail. I don't know what the issue is. It's a standard gigabit card (that's all I can really be sure of, but I am confident it's a broadcom) and I have tried almost all the remedies I can find (there's this one: http://forum.insanelymac.com/index.php?sho...rt=#entry164383 but I haven't tried it yet) but nothing is working. My card isn't being recognized at all. Does anybody have any idea what the problem is? Could an update to 10.5.5 fix it? If so, how do I go about doing that? Thanks a lot for your help fellas.
