  1. PC EFI 10.1 Installation Package

    This is a kick-ass bootloader!! It was the ONLY one that allowed me to boot my P5E3 Premium machine to run Snow Leopard. Props to Trograin for helping me find this loiphin.
  2. Samsung NC10 UK revision

    Also busting in anticipation of Mysticus's 10.5.7 update in light of the recent reports that 10.5.7 considerably improves battery life on hackintosh atom based netbooks.
  3. I assume you are talking about the 8056, as thats the title of your thread, and not 8053 as above... I had the same problem after updating to 10.5.7. I modified the Info.plist in the following directory: /System/Library/Extensions/IONetworkingFamily.kext/Contents/PlugIn/AppleYukon2.kext/Contents/ modify this, <key>Yukon-88E8053</key> <string>Yukon Gigabit Adapter 88E8053</string> <string>0x436211AB</string> to <key>Yukon-88E8056</key> <string>Yukon Gigabit Adapter 88E8056</string> <string>0x436411AB</string> Search for any other references to "8053" in the file and change to "8056". Do the same for "6211" and make it "6411" Reboot and use the -x -v -f switches and it should detect it correctly. loiphin.

  5. Hi all, Does anyone know which kexts are absolutely essential to boot up a vanilla install of Leopard 10.5.6 retail on a X48 chipset (P5E3 Premium mobo, Q9450 CPU, SATA HD/DVD), using PCEFI v9 on HD? I am trying to stay as vanilla as possible, but am having a hard time understanding what kexts do what. Also, there are so many different kexts floating around? I wish there was a kext repository, explaining exactly what they do , and showing top ten most popular kexts. Thanks, loiphin.
  6. Hi All, So as the title says, I have installed a vanilla retail copy of Leopard 10.5.6 onto my hackintosh (P5E3 Premium w/ Q9450 CPU), using a modified boot-132 loader. I have now installed PCEFI v9 so that I can boot from the hard drive. I used EFI Studio to setup my 8800 GTS 512MB video card and Taruga rev4 to setup the AD1988B sound card. All works pretty well and I am getting around twice the power than from my real 24" iMac (white, very first 24" model). Problems are shutdown is not working (due to Taruga drivers I think) and sleep also fails. I am just wondering about the kext side of things. I am really trying to weed out all unnecessary kexts. Problem is I don't really understand what they do. Information seems to be scarce on the subject. Using the PCEFI v9 loader, I am using the following Kexts: AppleSMBIOS.kext dsmos.kext IntelCPUPMDisabler.kext When I look at the Apple System info page, it fails to see my hardware... It also reports my CPU speed as 3.8GHz instead of true 2.66Ghz. If I boot up using DFE's boot-132 CD... I can then see my System info hardware, and also the CPU is correctly detected as 2.66GHz. So I know its something to do with the kexts? Can anyone suggest what kexts I should be loading as a bare minimum for my system? And perhaps describe what they do? I am almost there... just a couple more tweaks and my system will be perfect. The next time I upgrade my hardware, I will definitely keep osx86 in mind. I just can't justify the cost of a new Mac Pro. loiphin.
  7. MacGirls mailbox was full, hence not being able to send a PM... I did mean OSX on SATA on nForce4... oh well no worries.
  8. A8N-SLI Premium and no sound? Try this...

    Update: I performed a clean install with Jas 10.4.6, having previously updated my A8N-SLI Premium BIOS to 1302 beta. And now the sounds works "out of the box". The 10.4.6 Jas installation detects it without having to do anything else. loi.
  9. Hi Macgirl, You are running an nForce4 board aren't you? And you mention in your sig that you have got SATA working too? If thats the case, how did you do it ? I have an A8N-SLI Premium and it seems sometimes the SATA drives are recognised and other times not, when I boot the system. It does seem rather flaky, and am therefore rather reluctant to try to use the SATA drives. My system drive is on a std PATA drive. Thanks, loi
  10. Hi all, I have been messing around trying to get my A8N-SLI Premium to work under Jas's 10.4.7 installation DVD, and haven't been very successful until now. I also couldn't get sound to work on 10.4.5 or 10.4.6. The first thing I did was update my BIOS to a beta version called 1302. Just search for "A8N-SLI Premium 1302" on google and you should find it. I tried with previous versions 1009 and 1011.006beta and neither worked. So try this first, and see if it works. What I also did was use the AppleAC97 kext from macgirl http://forum.osx86project.org/index.php?sh...amp;hl=soundmax Look for it in the thread above... I had already installed the kext, and then updated the BIOS, which then caused it to start working.... perhaps you dont need the above kext. Good luck and post your successes or failures! loi.
  11. Hi Jas! Thanks first of all for creating the 10.4.6 release! I did have a b0 error initially, because the partition was not marked active. But its fine now. The system boots up without any issues in safe mode. Its just the graphics driver that is a problem. BTW, I also performed the manual Boris method, but still no luck. loi.
  12. Hi there, I have struggling to get the Jas edition of 10.4.6 working on my PC. I currently have: A8N-SLI Premium 2 Gig Crucial DRAM Asus EAX1600XT Silent/TVD/256M/A AMD X2 4200+ So the system installs no probs when using the Jas or Hotiso DVD. The problem happens when I reboot and I am presented with a black screen and a cursor in the top left. Here are the facts I have figured out so far: 1. Can boot into Mac OS X using "-x" safe mode. That works fine, but no acceleration. 2. Because I performed the initial config, ie, keyboard type, country, user name etc whilst in safe mode, now when I reboot I get a black screen with a cursor on the top left, but also some coloured bars on the top and bottom. I can definiately confirm that this is the main OS X screen, as I can resize the coloured block on the bottom, which is in fact resizing the dock. 3. So it seems that graphics card is accepted, but the screen is not drawn properly for some reason. 4. I have also tried with a flashed Sapphire Video BIOS, and another Asus X1600XT BIOS... both which produce the same black screen. My card is 1002 71c0. 5. I have tried various "Graphics Mode" settings, which I can see alter the resolution, but still produce the same black screen with some coloured blocks. I am sure its something fairly small. Please help me, its driving me insane! Thanks, loi.
  13. I had the same problem when installing using Jas or Hotiso 10.4.6. The install goes fine and then when I reboot all I get is a black screen with a cursor in the top left. I installed with a ASUS EAX1600XT card. I suspected the card was at fault, so I removed the card and put my GT 6800 back in. And voila, Mac OS X appeared without any issues. So what I did next was to try and setup the kext files so they would recognise my X1600XT. By mistake I deleted all the ATI files, and realised now I was screwed. But just out of interest I popped the X1600XT back in again and it worked! So what I conclude is that the native X1600 Apple drivers didn't properly load and gave me the black screen, but by deleting the ATI drivers, it resorted to a std VESA driver... *I guess* I suspect this could be the same for your card. Try deleting the Geforce kext's in /System/Library/Extentions and see what happens. But make a backup by copying them to a separate directory! loi. Sorry , I just realised that yours doesn't even boot! .. sorry, I misread your post.
  14. can't install Leopard

    macxpnux, I am currently running 10.4.7 on my Macbook. So I converted the leopard .dmg into an .iso using hdiutil, and then copied it back to my pc, having connected the macbook to my local LAN. I created a network share on my windows box and copied it into there. I then burnt the .iso using Nero on DL blank media. Still, it didnt work :censored2: loi.
