  1. I have 3 partitions of an ata drive running ideb 10.5.5. I was on one drive and proceeded to change permissions on one drive to "all users read and write" and the applied that to all te enclosed items. Ok that was not smart in hind sight but now none of my drives will load at all? I get the blue screen hanging when I try from any of the other 2 drives and I get a repeat restarting / reloading when I try to load the Drive that I messed with the permissions on. I have already tried booting with: -f , -x , to no avail Is there a way to repair the permissions or boot as "root" so I can change back the permissions?
  2. When I add more than 3 gigs of Ram (6gigs) I get non stop unexpected Crashes and Kernel Panics. After researching I found that it is indeed the jmicron controller that is the culprit. After disabling Jmicron the computer runs smoothly. I was wondering though if there are any alternative methods to address the Jmicron-RAM issue without disabling it outright. I still wish to run my ide devices if possible without buying adaptors for every device. My Setup: Asus P6T SE Intel i7 920 Asus EAH 4850 I gig Video 3gigs / 6 gigs (sans jmicron) RAM Running Ideneb 10.5.5
  3. Well the RAM is identical to the stuff I already have. A friend of mine said I should look to the BIOS settings and increase to the voltage. I'm trying to research now to see if that will be save. I'm not too savvy with PC s yet.
  4. But I have not been able to install snow leopard in the first place? I get hung up on the install. So I only have 10.5.5 running now. Not sure how I'm supposed to run the update?
  5. Yes I am currently on Ideneb 10.5.5 and the card works like a charm. I did have to install the kexts though to enable proper resolution and dual capabilities, but that was after the OS was working and installed.
  6. Hi Tweak, Ok This makes sense. I downloaded the kexts from the link thank you! I was wondering though if there is a way to inject them into the flash drive? I placed them in the "Extra" Folder next to the extensions.mkext in a faint hope that it woudl work but nothing happened. I suppose finding a 6.2 disc is the best solution. Big_T Hey Man , Still thanks for trying anyway!!! I also thought it was the power management or ethernet card. Big_T

  8. Hi Tweak, Here are the screen shots of my primary screen and the other secondary screen that sort of disintegrates (in a new wave artistic kind of style) T
  9. Rexel, I had the same problem and my USB was properly (GUID) formatted. My solution was: In System BIOS: #1 Make Sure your primary boot device is the allocated to the flash drive #2 have Jmericon Disabled Doing these two steps led me to get past the blinking underscore and actually enter the chameleon interface. I'm still jamming up though using the -v enter I get jammed at the: ACPI_SMC_PlatformPlugin: : start - waitFor wervice (resourceMatching(AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement) timed out AppleRTL8169Ethernet : Ethernet address 00:21:8c:9a: .......
  10. Ahhhhh I feel a bit stupid. I failed to mention that installed 3 additional Gig's of RAM. I was so occupied with the crashes and Snow leopard that I overlooked this basic possible source for trouble. I've not heard of BAD RAM in a long time am I'm still figuring if it is the OS /Motherboard hating the new RAM or just the RAM that is faulty. At any rate I don't think it was the Snow Leopard install disc that is causing the troubles.
  11. I placed a Snow leopard standard installation disc into the disk drive and all hell has since broken loose. The reason I put it in in the first place was not to try to install off it, but to restore it to a flash drive to try the flash drive installation method. As soon as the Disk loaded the drive: instant hard crash with the multi language "you must restart your computer" screen. Since then I have had that "you must restart your computer " crash continually and at different instances not traceable to a single action or program. The crash usually happens when opening a new program , opening the cd drive , or doing an action in a program. Also My usb ports seem to be turning off and on or not delivering the right amount of power. I have run Leopard cache cleaner to no success. And repaired permissions. Gee I really regret putting that disk into the drive but I can't understand what it spewed onto my current OS to get these results? Any ideas? Here are my specs: Running Idenb 10.5.5. Asus P6T SE i7 920 asus EAH 4850 1 gig graphics card 6 gigs of (1gig) 1333 ddr3 ram.
  12. Hello, I'm just about to Try a hackintosh install on my: Quadcore i7 920 Asus P6T SE Asus EAH4670/DI/512 RADEON With all the boot loader varieties I'm wondering if anyone can suggest the most simple and straight forward Loader. I'm not a total noob, and I can follow instructions, but I'm not very well versed in the PC world or coding in general. I'm looking for a loader that can boot multiple partitions with ease. Any suggestions?
  13. Hello, I'm new to the OS86 World but have been studying the forums with much enthusiasm for the last few days. I'm excited to get started I'm building a hackintosh from scratch and would like to use the Intel i7 920 Processor. Other than that I have no preferences for additional hardware. My Only concern is I would like to have the following boot options open to me: 1: Main MAC OSX 2: Secondary MAC OSX (for testing and trouble shooting) 3: Windows XP (for gaming of course ) So there would be 3 boot drives in total. I do not have a preference if they are all on different partitions of the same drive or separate drives or even usb drives. I'm just wondering what is the best way to go about this and is it possible? (I have read that some mother boards don't support multiple booting) Many thanks Big_T
