  1. I have the same MSI MS-7613 board, using an Core i3 540, (busratio=23) , and 4gb memory, using the built in Intel GMA graphics. After install OSX Snow Leo 10.6.3 retail, using [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] 3.04, I can't get past the bootloader installation, basically the [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] settings and bootloader dont't boot. I can only boot from [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] 3.04, otherwise the system never loads directly from the system disk. even under safe mode or single user mode. I guess since I'm booting from the CD, the changes I implement with [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] are never loaded, for example, I select system profile MacPro4,1, but when booting from [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] CD, the system reports MacPro3,1 profile, and the VoodooHDA kext is not loaded either. When I boot from the hard drive in verbose mode, the screen goes black fairly early on in the process, and never comes back Could anyone help with this?
  2. I have been trying to set up 10.6.X on a new system which is an HP Pavilion P6501C system, equiped with the i3 540 CPU, MSI MS-7613 system board, 4gb DDR3 memory, during installation using a single SATA II 160GB hdd on the first port, and bios SATA set to AHCI, using the built in NIC which is a Realtek 888S, (works when installing SL 10.6.3 retail, using [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] 2.7 method) built in RealTek HD audio, using the Intel GMA HD integrated graphics from the boards Intel H57 Express chipset. I have attempted installing Snow Leopard 10.6.3 retail, using [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] 2.7 boot cd to load the OSX retail install DVD. Installation completes successfully, and boots up from the [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] CD. Snow Leopard 10.6.3 boots with the [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] CD. I can't confirm it, but I do not believe audio was working, and graphics were very basic. So coming this far is a great sign, yet when following the "[url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url]-[url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url]" guide found at the TonyMacx86 forum, I cripple the boot process when I apply [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url]'s "[url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url]" settings. Upon rebooting I see a new Chameleon boot loader screen loading from the HDD, but always get stuck at the following message. "appleintelcpupowermanagement : Timed Out" I have tried -x, and single user mode with no success, and even booting with the previously working [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] boot disc now fails. I have not been able to find much information on getting OSX on this particular system board, and really don't play around with Kexts much more than I absolutely have to for making things work. I'm asking for any advice you may have, what to look for, or maybe other possible solutions other than the [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url]/[url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] method. Any help would be greatly appreciated. If anyone can help me out I would be so greatful.
  3. I didn't imagine there was such a kext! Thank you again Robert, you a savior. I will install with kexthelpber b7(anyone else notice it needs to be force quit, ever since I installed SL) yet it still gets the job done. So hopefully this will solve my problem, I will let you know, B.
  4. Hello Robert! I've had great luck with your 10.5 installation guide on my ASUS P5Q, and after a power outage which crippled my installation of 10.5.8( which I used solidly for a year and change thanks to you!) I went and rebuilt my system to 10.6.6, with my backed up data. On the 10.6.6 installation I was using a PNY Nvidia GeForce 9600 GT 512 card with everything working perfectly using Chameleon 2r3 I believe. Now I'm having some issues after replacing the 9600GT with a Quadro FX3800 1gb. Under profiler it shows the correct VRAM, says its "unknown". " Chipset Model: Unknown Type: GPU Bus: PCIe Slot: Slot-1 PCIe Lane Width: x16 VRAM (Total): 1024 MB Vendor: NVIDIA (0x10de) Device ID: 0x05ff Revision ID: 0x00a1 ROM Revision: xx.xx.xx - internal Displays: Cintiq 21UX 2: Resolution: 1600 x 1200 @ 60 Hz Pixel Depth: 32-Bit Color (ARGB8888) Main Display: Yes Mirror: Off Online: Yes Rotation: Supported " Honestly I'm not picky with pretty details, as long as the card works with Maya and well, I don't care what OSX thinks it is. The only problem is I have been experiencing a jumpy lagging mouse cursor since I changed the graphics card, and apparently after some searching, this is a known problem if the video card is having trouble processing the display. So it forces me to get the card to be detected properly, to try and solve the cursor issue,. The mouse problem is way more noticeable for me as I use the screen zooming in OSX because I am very near sighted. If anyone can point me in the right direction on solving this I would be so very grateful! B.
  5. G94(9600gt) is fully supported by new mbp drivers!

    After following the steps of adding my device ID 0622 to NDVANV50Hal.kext I just noticed that my computer will not return from the display going to sleep. I went ahead and returned the kext to its pre edited back up copy, verified that my card ID was NOT listed, repaired permissions rebooted, and set display sleep down to 2 minutes. It solved that issue... by the way again, I am running vanilla Leopard 10.5.8, with Efi string for video card generated from OSX86 tools. The settings I used are "NVIDIA GeForce 9600 GT", 512mb VRAM, and outputs to DVI-DVI. Also I have installed the updated kext files using Aqua Mac's installation package. Also incase it helps to pinpoint the problem, the no return from video sleep was happening when I booted from Chameleon 2 RC3 locally installed, and even when booting my trusty old boot132 flash drive(this is a life saver). Well... I am stumped on the video mirror problem. One more note, with the EFI string alone, as in none of the kexts have my cards device id listed this is what system profiler displays for my card NVidia GeForce 9600 GT: Chipset Model: NVidia GeForce 9600 GT Type: Display Bus: PCIe PCIe Lane Width: x16 VRAM (Total): 512 MB Vendor: NVIDIA (0x10de) Device ID: 0x0622 Revision ID: 0x00a1 ROM Revision: NVidia GeForce 9600 GT OpenGL Engine [EFI] Displays: Display Connector: Status: No Display Connected SyncMaster: Resolution: 1920 x 1200 @ 60 Hz Depth: 32-Bit Color Core Image: Hardware Accelerated Main Display: Yes Mirror: Off Online: Yes Quartz Extreme: Supported Rotation: Supported
  6. G94(9600gt) is fully supported by new mbp drivers!

    Hello all, Great bit of info here regarding installing the 9600GT using MBP drivers, and efi strings from OSx86, It hasn't exactly worked out for me, but that might be my fault. In my case I was actually pretty much at the same point I am now, where I was only using a efi string in boot.plist. to achieve CI/QE proper name and memory detection of the card in Vanilla 10.5.6 on an ASUS P5Q, and recently updated to 10.5.8. I still had a problem due to the fact that OSX would give me a black screen with only a cursor on my secondary display when mirroring is activated. My card has two DVI ports and an S-Video port, 512MB dd3 I believe it is a PNY Verto, I have not tested the TV-out port, but have used 3 different displays on both DVI ports with same result. Strangely enough the secondary display will work in mirror mode if there is some rotation of any sort applied, and if I try fooling around and switching the displays on the DVI ports I sometimes can't recover to a visible desktop and will be stuck with just a blue background. I have set my card up in several different ways and the ones which allowed me to even use the second DVI port for dual display support all failed pretty much the same way. Currently I used this method, installed MBP drivers using aqua macs pkg, edited NVDANV50hal's nfo plist with my dev ID of 0x062210de, updating the entry that was originally listed in the plist for dev ID 601 I if I remember correctly... Repaired permissions, added custom string using OSx86 Tools and I'm back with same wierd display mirroring strangeness In case it helps, my card shows as NVidia GeForce 9600 GT: Chipset Model: NVidia GeForce 9600 GT Type: Display Bus: PCIe PCIe Lane Width: x16 VRAM (Total): 512 MB Vendor: NVIDIA (0x10de) Device ID: 0x0622 Revision ID: 0x00a1 ROM Revision: NVidia GeForce 9600 GT OpenGL Engine [EFI] Displays: Cintiq 12WX: Resolution: 1280 x 800 @ 60 Hz Depth: 32-Bit Color Core Image: Hardware Accelerated Mirror: Off Online: Yes Quartz Extreme: Supported Rotation: Supported SyncMaster: Resolution: 1920 x 1200 @ 60 Hz Depth: 32-Bit Color Core Image: Hardware Accelerated Main Display: Yes Mirror: Off Online: Yes Quartz Extreme: Supported Rotation: Supported Hmm... Now that is odd, I'm on my 24' Samsung Syncmaster LCD right now and the Cintiq has been disconnected for over 30 minutes. I think I saw a post on an other forum mentioning the same problem with a 9400 GT, maybe Tonymac. They still haven't gotten the issue resolved.
  7. It seems that somewhere along the line, I must have changed something in my network for the better. Now under system profiler/ network/ethernet/media subsystem- the field is indicating 1000base T. Great!, that means I can continue my setup without worrying about the nic kext
  8. Hey, this driver has been working on my p5q for several months, flawlessly. Now I went and bought myself a NAS box with gigabit lan, and a gigabit switch, already had CAT6 cables, now... the question is, does this driver work at gigabit speed? or is it only using the NIC as a fast ethernet 100mb speed? I looked at the ethernet section of about this mac, and under "media subsystem" it shows 100baseTX. Well thanks in advance, I hope I'm wrong.
  9. Well, I noticed that ALC1200 kext Marionez posted, and noticed some people said it fixed they're restart shutdown issues. Unfortunately unless I did something wrong, or possible some other kext is interefering with the shut down process. The updated audio driver didn't make any difference. To turn off my system I usually use the restart command, wait a minute or two, wait until the bios comes back up, then I manually power off my tower. If anyone can shed some light on this, please do. Thanks in advance
  10. Again I have to thank you for the tutorial. I have to say, I have been using the install I made from following this tutorial, and some efi and NVIDIA fixes. It has been working near flawlessly for months. The only place I have issues are on bootloader help, and shut down/ restart from 10.5.6. I'll explain. I currently have 4 partitions, on one HDD. Vista on first part (for occasional use and utilities only), XP SP3 on second part (I broke this one somehow). Mac OSX 10.5.6 on third part (I want this to auto boot if possible). and just in case on my fourth part I have 10.5.6 dvd installer with MBR mod. The way I currently boot is first hdd looks at vista boot menu, made with EasyBCD. this has Vista, XP, and OSX listed. I can easily change this to default to osx no problem, but on my OSX part I'm using PC EFI with Boot132 files as per step 11 method 1 in this tutorial. on this menu I have Vista first, XP second, and OSX 3rd. So I always hae to manually choose OSX, If I select vista I can go back to the first boot EasyBCD menu on that partition. I'm lost as how to edit the darwin chameileon boot options to just auto load OSX. If anyone has a better way to auto boot and still have the option to boot from other partitions if needed, I would really appreciate some advice. I'm shocked my mess of partitions is working as well as it is. My other 2 HDDs are for data only. Oh I almost forgot. I am also having issues with shutting down from leopard. I know some folks were trying differen things to fix this a few months back, but does anyone have updates on this issue? Current Specs: 10.5.6 retail Asus P5Q Core 2 Quad 2.66Ghz Q9400, stock speed. 4GB ram 1 160gb HDD (OS's), 2 1TB HDD (Mac, and PC data) GF9600GT
  11. Robert RX thanks again Amazing tutorial!, now that the Attansic L1E onboard LAN is working we are in real business I hope the LAN not working after sleep gets fixed soon though. I've successfully installed 10.5.6 off the 10.5.6 retail DMG and partition on my ASUS P5Q, got my nVidia GeForce 9600GT 512mb PCIe working perfectly by using EFI strings. Everything else was from your guide, and now I see you updated to include the LAN drivers. the only things that I see strange in my install is the fact that under about this mac it lists my processor as 3.8ghz on unknown, and model as product name. I'm running a Intel Core 2 Quad core Q9400 2.67ghz, running at stock values. I did notice that the BIOS configuration file you provided in your guide seemed to have set some memory voltages, or at least it looks that way since those entries don't just say auto like everything else on that section of the BIOS. I'm not completely sure if sleep/shutdown/restart are working fully, I notice sometimes it takes very long to turn of, or just doesn't. Also a note for the folks using this guide from scratch, in case the BIOS configuration file hasn't been updated, the onboard lan which is now working, is disabled after applying the OC profile. So just enable it in BIOS. Thanks again for the amazing guide, this system is running so nicely now
  12. Hey, Great guide, thanks for posting this info PCWIZ, and Bit Shovler for the combo string clarifiacation!I was able to get my GeForce 9600GT working properly on retail 10.5.6 on Asus P5Q. I attempted to get my Intel Ethernet Pro 100 PCI card working with efi, I combined the keys and generated the hex as I did when I got the GFX straightened out. There was good news, and bad news. The good news was that I am still able to boot, and my GFX card is stiill working properly. The bad, ethernet did not work still. If anyone can point me in the right direction on getting either my intel ethernet pro 100 card, or my p5q boards built in attansic L1e ethernet working, then I would be really set. I will be trying the same steps for the onboard LAN next, but that seems like a dead end. EDIT Well things got a little strange. I managed to trick OSX into picking up the intel pci nic, by re enabling the onboard lan. I was able to reach my network and internet like a charm, but strangely and unfortunately this stops working after the following reboot. At first I though I screwed something up by being impatient and adding changes to the strings but I repeated the original steps and same thing happened. What I did was, with onboard LAN disabled in BIOS, ran gfxutil and got my devicepath for ethernet, so I'm assuming it is only dealing with the Intel Pro 100 PCI card. I use the path and combine the keys with my working gfx string, generate the hex, back up my boot.plist, replace with new edited one. Reboot, LAN not working, no MAC listed, no go, now I reboot, enable onboard LAN in BIOS, boot into OSX, check network pane, NIC IS WORKING!, the cable is in the secondary PCI intel card. reboot again, now NIC is back to showing no MAC. I'm lost as to how to fix this. When I plug rj45 to the onboard nic the status never changed, only the intel PCI card ever did.
