  2. Radeon X1600Pro PCI-e

    I have big problems with my Gigabyte Radeon X1600Pro Silent pipe II card (0x71c2). Since I installed Leopard I can't get it working right. It worked flawlessly in Tiger. I can get resolutions working by using ATIInject but CI/QE is impossible.. I've tried following this guide: http://forum.insanelymac.com/index.php?sho...&start=0%22, Tried using the old Natit ppack from my 10.4.8 install and various other methods. It hangs at a blue screen when loginwindow is started. No cursor or anything. Either that or no GUI at all is shown, stays in terminal-like mode (when booting with -v) I really need your help! If I get this working I'll have a 100% Leo install. In Tiger, borisbadenov's method didn't work for me, I had to use the Natat kext..If that can be useful to know... Relevant setup information: OS: Leopard 10.5.2 currently eddie's Leo4All, tried Zephyroth' version as well. AMD Athlon 64 3500+ DFI Infinity RS482 - North bridge: ATI Radeon Xpress 200 RS482 - South bridge: ATI SB450 - Integrated graphics: ATI Radeon X300 GPU (not in use) Gigabyte X1600Pro Silent pipe Apple Cinema Display 20", DVI From System Profiler: ATI Radeon X1600: Chipset Model: ATY,RadeonX1600 Type: Display Bus: PCIe PCIe Lane Width: x16 VRAM (Total): 256 MB Vendor: ATI (0x1002) Device ID: 0x71c2 Revision ID: 0x0000 EFI Driver Version: 01.00.068 Displays: Cinema Display: Display Type: LCD Resolution: 1680 x 1050 Depth: 32-bit Color Core Image: Software Main Display: Yes Mirror: Off Online: Yes Quartz Extreme: Not Supported Display Connector: Status: No display connected Thanks in advance!
  3. I'm using a PCI-E X1600Pro (0x71c2) and I've got the same problems as the AGP users. I can get resolution switching but no CI/QE but when I edit my ATIRadeonx1000 binary It hangs at the blue screen. Mouse cursor doesn't show and Shift+Ctrl+Eject doesn't do anything... I also tried to use an old Natit kext but without any results what so ever. The card worked great in Tiger (that's why I bought it...) Any suggestions? I'm using Zaphyroth 10.5.2 rev.2 Gigabyte Radeon X1600Pro 256 PCI-E Silentpipe II
  4. Hi everyone! I can't connect to servers in Leopard. It says the the URL is invalid eventhough I use smb:// or afp://. In finder the shares are showing up but I get connection failed. The "connect as.." button doesn't seem to work either. I can ping the other computers just fine. I tried using my old modified 10.4.x kext but the problem remained the same. Has anyone got the same problem and/or know a way to sort this out? System: Zephyroth 10.5.2 rev2 AMD Athlon64 3500+ DFI Infinity RS482 (x200/SB450) (built-in Realtek RTL8110SB Gigabit PCI LAN) Thanks.
  5. At the beginning of the install I get the message: Install Failed Mac OS X could not be installed on your computer The installer could not install the software because there was no software found to install. Click restart to restart your coI can not figure out what's causing this error. The disc is fine, i verified the image and the burnt DVD.. I'm using high quality Verbatim DVD-R and burnt at 4X (slowest avalible). My drives show up as 128GB but I figured that was a common problem that I could solve later.. I haven't had any problems with 10.4.5 10.4.6 or 10.4.8.. I have one GUID partition that I make using Disk utility on the disc. Hardware: AMD A64 3500+ DFI Infinity RS482 (SB 400 chipset) Gigabyte X1600Pro SilentPipe II PCI-E card 2 GB PC3200 RAM 160GB Samsung ATA drive (for OS) 400GB Samsung ATA drive (for storage) NEC Optiarc DVD±RW DL I got every part of this setup to work in Tiger. I'm really out of ideas, and would really need your help on this one... Any thoughts? TIA /Chris
  6. iPod Classic on iTunes 7.2

    Is there any way to hack iTunes to recognize the new iPods? I'm using 7.2 and I really don't want to update since Apple screwed up the sorting.. I can't stand having numbers after letters in the browser.. Or is it possible to hack the new iTunes to sort like the old versions? Changing files or editing .rsrc files or something? Any clue?
  7. Universal Requests?

    I'd love to see a universal binary of TriTag, a great batch ID3 tagger for OS X. Info and source here: http://www.feedface.com/software/tritag.html
  8. Hi everyone! Can anyone tell me if SATA disks will work in OSX with this board/chipset? As it is now I only have PATA disks in my system and I don't want to take a chance buying a new disk... I don't need to boot off the drive only have it as data storage... http://us.dfi.com.tw/Product/xx_product_sp...497&SITE=US Thanks! /silent
  9. What app are you missing?

    I miss: - AutoGK, actually a collection of various apps but the simplicity is awsome. - fulDC, kickass DC++ based client. - renamer, no osx renamer compares to it. - ID3-TagIt, I want an app that can convert folder structure into ID3 tags easily. - Winamp, It really kicks Cog's ass. - uTorrent, nuff said - JCreator, Xcode is probably great but it seems way to complicated for me. That's about it. Still I very rarely reboot into XP..
  10. My Headphone set is working fine in 10.4.8. I used the TubeGirl ISO with the latest PPF (PPF2)...
  11. Hi! I managed to sort my video problems out by upgrading to OS X 10.4.8 (TubeGirls iso w/ PPF2) and everything is working great except for the onboard network card. I had full network support "out-of-the-box" in 10.4.5 - 10.4.7 but now the ethernet is grayed out in the network port settings panel. It is present in the System profiler but it wont work... I already tried the Neopheus installer for Realtek drivers but without success. Can I copy the kexts from 10.4.7? And if so what kext should I copy? I have a DFI Infinity RS482 with the ATi Radeon Xpress 200 RS482 north bridge and the SB450 southbridge. The LAN controller is a Realtek RTL8110SB Gigabit Ethernet. Thanks for any help, this is the last thing missing from a perfect setup /Silent EDIT: Damn I'm on a roll! I fixed this one myself as well! I inserted some kext from 10.4.5 into the IONetworkingFamily.kext in 10.4.8 and network is working again. Now the system is working great. Sometimes I need to unplug and replug some USB devices to make them work after a restart but I can live with that. But if anyone has a solution for this too, I'm all ears Take care /Silent
  12. I solved the problem by flashing the board with the latest BIOS and installing 10.4.8 AMD PPF2... I'm beeing forced to replace my DFI Infinity RS482 since it won't allow me to use my Gigabyte X1600PRO SilentPipe II with the boris method. The board is perfect except for the integrated graphics interfering with the X1600 (se other topic).. I need a really cheap replacement board as I've already spent too much money on this comp. I'm leaning towards a ASUS A8V-VM. Is this a good board for OSX. What I need is working PATA, working network and working USB 2.0. I'll add a firewire PCI card later on since the board lacks firewire. Has anybody tried this board with an X1600? Or experience with boards with the same chipset... Is this fine or has anybody got any other board suggestions maybe even with firewire? /Silent edit: oh {censored}! I saw that the network card won't work with osx. Other recommendations it is then...
  13. Hi I've tried to install my graphic card with both Borisbadenov's method and with the Neopheus installer (which is based on that very same method.) but I can't get it working! When the drivers has been modified it boots to right before the login app shows up, but nothing happens, I'm left in the "terminal-like" enviroment. I tried this with the goatsecx 10.4.6 DVD with and without 10.4.7 update. I also tried to install a copy of 10.4.5 but without different results. Please help me out! I bought this gaphic card just because everyone said it works great in OSX.. My system: AMD 64 3500+ DFI Infinity RS482 (motherboard) Gigabyte X1600PRO SilentPipe II 256MB PCI-E Thanks! /Silent edit: I tried both DVI and VGA ports. I really need DVI support though..can't use my Cinema display with vga. EDIT2: I am now the happiest guy in the world I updated to the latest BIOS and installed OSX 10.4.8 AMD SSE3 w/ PPF2 and now I have fully supported graphics! I'm so glad I didn't have to change my mobo since I've fallen in love with alll the different BIOS settings and features. Over and out! /Silent
  14. I'm leaning towards buying a EAX1600XT Silent/TVD/256M (are there other models of Asus EAX1600XT??) graphics card for my hackintosh. In some posts people say that they can't get it working with boris method, while others seems to have it fully supported! I don't want to buy a card that won't support CI and QE. For me it's vital that the DVI-port works since my Cinema Display only connects through DVI.. Please share your knowledge! I can get a pretty nice deal on this card if I act fast. Thanks!
