  1. The link to the latest Clover files in post #1 is 404'd. Additionally, what's the link to the latest HP Probook Installer? Thanks...
  2. Yes, it was purchased from the App Store then burned to a DVD for installation on multiple machines by the IT department. We have a multiple machine license arrangement.
  3. I have a 10.8 vanilla install DVD made from a downloaded installation file. I need to modify the disk to allow installation on an MBR-formatted dual-boot hard drive with Win 7 on another partition. I downloaded a package containing modified OSINSTALL components and created an .ISO file from the DVD on my desktop. One of the fhe files I need to substitute isn't located in the same place mentioned in the instructions for the OSINSTALL files. Instead, it appears to be located in an image file in the root directory called BaseSystem.dmg. I can mount that but not write to it, even if I supposedly have the permissions to do so. So, how would I go about copying the modified OSINSTALL files and still have an ISO image I can write to an install disk (or USB)?
  4. DSDT Patcher

  5. DSDT Patcher

    I've downloaded this and wish to patch a file I've created using Everest Lavalys under Windows. The impression I get through reading the (somewhat sparse) instructions is that the program, if simply run from the GUI, will patch a pre-existing DSDT in the disk's root directory. The instructions say it's possible to point to a particular file to patch, but implies that's done if the program is run from a terminal session. I've tried running the program that way, but I keep getting errors and the program won't run. So, what's the proper syntax to run this thing?
  6. Chameleon 2.4svn Official PKG Installer

    I've installed this to a USB stick I prepared with 10.6.3 on it, and told the program to install in the EFI partition. (I'm supposing that's right, in order to get the program to find and use the kexts you install and not the defaults.) However, when it boots I don't get the normal Chameleon graphic installer, just a DOS-based text Darwin installer. This would be okay, except that the text is so large in this mode that it's hard to read all the messages on-screen. Is there something special I need to select in the installer to get the graphic-based boot? EDIT: Never mind. It's a parameter in com.Apple.boot.plist. Duh.

    By same card, I meant same ID as in post #4: 0x944C1002. The video is nice, and shows the boot: prompt at the beginning, but not how you get that prompt in the first place. What key or keys are pressed to get that line?
  8. hd4830

    Okay, dumb question here. I've installed 10.6.4 with Chameleon RC5 on my GA-ep45-UD3r with identical video card that's the topic of this thread. How do I restart and feed the system the startup parameters (-x, -v, et cetera) when doing so?
  9. Under Leopard I was unable to install to my PC's hard drive (formatted MBR) until I made a 'custom' retail DVD with a patch to allow an MBR install. (Long story about why this was necessary omitted; suffice it to say I don't want to go through that hell again.) Now I am unable to find that original post with instructions on what to change...the change was insignificant as I recall. Some file got a parameter changed. I'm now wondering if that same change is necessary with Snow Leopard and, if so, what gets changed?
  10. Anyone running a Toshiba 1905-S301 laptop?

    It's been a while, but...anyone?
  11. I installed 10.5.6 using this mobo and a Core 2 Duo chip. It works well (except for my ATi 4830 HD video card). I'm going to install the latest beta BIOS as well as upgrading to a Q9550 Core Quad this weekend. I wonder if it will bork up my existing installation...?
  12. Someone posted on the wiki that this machine works; however, their webpage links are now dead and they are MIA. So, does anyone have info/kexts/et cetera?
  13. NEW INSTALL: Gigabyte GA-EP45-UD3R

    Now for a strange problem...does anyone running a dual- (or triple-) boot system have any system clock instability? I've checked my control panels under Win XP and OS X 10.5.6 and the time zones are set correctly. Yet, I can reboot from WinXP (with the clock set correctly) into OS X then go back into XP and my clock is exactly four hours ahead.
  14. NEW INSTALL: Gigabyte GA-EP45-UD3R

    Thanks, seanmcd--that did the trick. Tried simply deleting just the contents of the folder, and the machine would die with the multilanguage "You're screwed-please restart" screen. Deleting the folder as well allowed booting and restarting without a hitch. Now if I could just get my ATi HD4830 video card working...
