  1. [ I accidentally posted this already in another, less relevant, forum ] This is my seventh Hackintosh build, and the hardest. I am using an ASUS IPIBL-LB motherboard with an ATI 4350 graphics card, and trying to run Snow Leopard 10.6.5 (I've had the same problems when trying with 10.6.0 and 10.6.6 as well) The problem is a recurrent AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement error (failure to boot) whenever I try to switch from internal VGA to the ATI 4350 -- i.e. the same installation boots just fine when using the internal graphics port, though, without QE/CI. Most of the variations in kext settings and bootloaders I've tried come from this post. The information there has led me to focus on 10.6.5 as my best option, using the kexts described there. I've been unable to locate a valid EFI string to inject for this card, and I don't know enough about modifying DSDT to tweak a DSDT file appropriately for the 4350 (tried a bare extraction of DSDT in Extras folder, without modifications, but that doesn't help). I have the NullCPUPowerManagement kext in E/E-- used [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] to install it as part of the [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] core enablers. I've tried manually inputting the device ID of the 4350 into the ATI 4600controller kext, as well as the ATIRadeonX2000 kext (of course done all the rebuilding of cache and mkext stuff each time). That didn't help either. Oh, i've mostly been trying with EvoEnabler in E/E -- should i be focusing on trying variations without it? I just want one output to work -- vga, or dvi, or hdmi, -- been playing with combinations of all those, but doesn't effect boot failure (not that it should). If I can get boot with QE/CI I'll be thrilled. Anyone have any hints? Thanks guys!

    "32bit Only" Ethernet?

    There seem to be a fair number of cases where onboard ethernet only works when SL is booted in 32bit. My question: ARE THERE ANY GENERAL TECHNIQUES FOR RESTORING/ENABLING ETHERNET IN 64BIT? Thanks! LaurenD __________________ My particular setup: Asus P5L-MX Intel E4300 (overclocked to 2.9 Ghz) SL 10.6.4 ATI 4650 512mb (QE/CI enabled) 2GB Ram *Ethernet runs fine with AttansicL1 kext under 32bit, but fails under 64bit.

    TabletMagic for TabletPCs

    GETTING TABLET RECOGNIZED -- THE "-d" FIX IS GREAT! Previously, I could only get my old Wacom UD-1212 tablet recognized by reinstalling tabletmagic every time I connected it -- pain in the butt. But I tried the described fix: adding the "-d" to the ProgramArguments section of the com.thinkyhead.TabletMagic.plist file and now it just connects, every time perfectly! Thanks!!! HOW TO FIX THE PROBLEM: For those who don't understand how to do this, it's easier than it sounds: Install TabletMagic. If you're using a serial-usb adapter for your tablet, find an appropriate driver to install for that adapter (for example: I installed Keyspan drivers with "Keyspan Serial Assistant"). Go to the "Library" folder on your main hard drive (assuming you're running the Apple OS X operating system). Inside you'll find a folder named "LaunchAgents". Inside you'll find a document named "com.thinkyhead.TabletMagic.plist" Click on it once, then "get info" about that file (using right click or command-i). click on the lock at the bottom, authorize with your user name, then change the "privileges" to permit you to "read/write" this document. Now open this file with TextEdit or other plain text editor. In the middle of the document you'll see <key>ProgramArguments</key>, followed by a column of entries inside <key> tags. At the bottom of that column, add this line of text, <string>-d</string> Type it exactly like I just did in plain text, so that it looks just like the lines above. Save and close this document. (If you can't save, it's because you didn't change the privileges appropriately when you looked at the document information. Try again.) Now, plug in your tablet and turn it on. Go to System Preferences and click on the Tablet Magic control panel. Click "enable" (top right). Your tablet should be found, if not click on the "automatic" find on the left (this should be unnecessary probably). VOILA! Enjoy Note: I am using the Wacom UD-1212 tablet currently attached to a "Hackintosh" (a dell netbook laptop that I've 'hacked' to run Mac OS X) running a wide screen flat-panel monitor, and it works beautifully! The Wacom tablet cost me $35 on ebay, the netbook cost me $190, and the keyspan serial adapter cost me $25 -- total cost for a high-def artists tablet computer setup: $250 plus the extra large monitor that I already owned. The results? As responsive and detailed as any $5,000 Cintiq tablet-plus-MacBook setup.
