  1. Mounting partitions

    The system does provide an actual mount point.. Default is /Volumes/[disk label] That is handled by the automounter which is dimmly configurable via burried plist files in /Library However, if you are *INTENT* on performing what is considered odd by non-hackintosh non-unix people, you can use sym links to the various things you want to be mounted... for example.. Drive 1: OS X Primary -- High Speed SSD Drive 2: User Dir you would need to label the drives and reference their mount point. do a symlink to the actual spot. if you want to do a sym link of the entire /Users folder, you'll need to drop to single user mode and create the symlink forcibly without the drive mounted <eg, where it WILL be.> I run my hackintosh on a 80GB intel SSD, which is adequate for most everything, but i wanted to have ease of use while having multiple disks, so I used a different disk for itunes which i linked the standard user dir/Library/iTunes to, and one for video and what not. this is about as close as it gets without digging real deep, and I am not even sure its possible any mroe with 10.5 and up -- I did years ago define mount points manually on 10.2, but thats ancient history. Good luck.
  2. Let me know how it goes, if for some reason you're unsuccessful reply to this post and I'll create a boot CD you can use that should work / upload the exact kexts I used. I dont foresee any problems tho, this board is pretty easy.
  3. I am using a DG33TL w/ 9500GT 1GB Video, 64 bit / 32 bit both function. Here is a list of my custom kexts: NullCPUPowerManagement.kext AppleIntelPIIXATA.kext OpenHaltRestart.kext <--- Current version fixes restart SleepEnabler.kext <--- Doesnt seem to work. The only thing that doesnt for me on this board. IOAHCIBlockStorageInjector.kext PlatformUUID.kext Intel82566MM.kext <-- Wired Ethernet Kext. Works great. Search google for 64bit version. Also, for whatver reason the 64bit kext fails to function if in E/E, and must be in SLE fakesmc.kext NVEnabler 64.kext <--- too lazy to find the efi string. VoodooHDA.kext (removed AppleHDA.kext) <--- in my efforts, I MUST put this in SLE and rm AppleHDA.kext I made a boot cd from my other mac, and put all the kexts except the VoodooHDA/SleepEnabler in E/E, but copied VoodooHDA to the CD. I then installed from retail and then booted with -v -s and edited SMUUID in smbios to match the UID of the drive + PlatformUID.kext/Contents/Info.plist. This yeilds a good install. If you take this same session of -s to copy VoodooHDA and rebuild kextcache you'll get perfect video/audio on the welcome video, and from this point forward shouldnt have an issue. SleepEnabler i save for after the update process. As far as DSDT goes, I'm trying to correct the ACPI table so sleep works.. I'm novice at the whole DSDT bit, but do know my way around code and what not, so with a little luck and google I might get it.
