  1. no, it's plain ol' BIOS.
  2. I recently bought a bluetooth/wireless PCI-e card from here. It claims to be made for hackintosh, so I figured it would be perfect. It works as advertised, except when my usb keyboard is plugged in at boot, it reboots soon after reaching the first bios screen. The bluetooth module is plugged into an internal usb header and when either that or the keyboard is unplugged, it boots up fine. I borrowed a friend's keyboard and had the same results. Tech support at OSXWifi has been responsive, but swears that they've never had a problem anything like this. I'm wondering if there might be a bios setting or something else that might be the culprit. Any ideas? Ryan!
  3. Here's my systemVersion.plist, thanks. <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd"> <plist version="1.0"> <dict> <key>ProductBuildVersion</key> <string>13F34</string> <key>ProductCopyright</key> <string>1983-2014 Apple Inc.</string> <key>ProductName</key> <string>Mac OS X</string> <key>ProductUserVisibleVersion</key> <string>10.9.5</string> <key>ProductVersion</key> <string>10.9.5</string> </dict> </plist> That was just a blu-ray that was mounted.
  4. Here's my install log. Yes, that drive is definitely my boot drive.

  5. After upgrading to 10.9.5, I am no longer able to run the Kext/kernel installer. I get the error message, "Kext/kernel installer cannot proceed with no OS installed!" The selected drive is definitely the correct drive. I'm not sure if it's related, but I had been playing around lately with fixes for iMessages/Facetime (new serial and other accompanying SMBIOS values). My system has been really stable for years thanks to this forum, so I haven't been around much lately. Thanks again for the community!
  6. Here you go. Raptor is my boot disk, Extradrive is my media disk, and MiniDrive is a little portable drive that I use for test booting. Things got a little more common because that error only pops up sometimes, and it happens with both the old and the new version of the hackinstaller. I haven't been able to pin down what the error has been tied to.

  7. I recently updated my boot loader and a few kexts with hackinstaller v6.52 after letting my system sit unaltered for many months. Timed sleep no longer works, so I was trying to revert things back to track down the problem. I tried to open up the old hackinstaller (v4.5) and I get this message: This system contains over nine drives and/or partitions! This script does not support this many devices and will exhibit unpredictable behavior. For best results. please remove unneccessary storage devices to stay under the limit. This concerns me a bit because I only have 2 drives mounted, my boot drive and a media drive. Should I be concerned by this at all or is this just a result of backwards incompatibility with the older versions of the hackinstaller? Ryan!
  8. I built a hackintosh a while ago and used a fanless 9600GT and have been happy with it. I'm building one for my friend now but there doesn't seem to be many fanless options out there. Do you guys have any advice for a decent graphics card for under $150 (ideally closer to $100) that is silent? This is for my friend who will be doing video editing with Final Cut and After Effects. I'm also not sure if it's worth investing a little more in a decent graphics card so that when Final Cut Pro X comes out next month, hopefully it would be able to utilize it. Thoughts? Ryan!
  9. I get that error too, but it doesn't seem to affect my firewire usage. I use multiple firewire drives all the time, and they hot swap properly for me too. Are others with GA-EX58 boards having hotplug issues? Ryan!
  10. ALC888 100% in Snow Leopard x64

    Ah, OK. I was looking for something literally called, "X64forALC888.kext." Thanks, Ryan!
  11. ALC888 100% in Snow Leopard x64

    Where can I get this kext? A google search produces nothing. Ryan!
  12. I've been using Pro Tools in 64 bit for a while now with no problems on a EX58-UD3R, rev 1.0, BIOS F8. I have much less kexts in /Extra though. I'm down to fakesmc, OSXRestart, IONetworkingFamily, and AppleHDA (with the last two in S/L/E). The rest of the fixes were done using d00d's DSDT editing guide. What revision of the MoBo do you have, 1.0, 1.6, or 1.7? Ryan!
  13. Did that work for you before the update? That code is really designed for ALC889A. Use the dsdt code Callumj09 posted a few posts back with the kext in extra, or you can use AppleHDA.kext in S/L/E from here: http://www.kexts.com/view/147-acl888_hd_audio.html Ryan!
  14. No dice on all three for me. I'll just stick with EFI strings for now i suppose. I see you have ALC888. Are you using an audio kext? AppleHDA or Legacy? Did you apply a sound DSDT patch? I applied the update too with patched AppleHDA and sound returned for me after I rebuilt my boot cache and restarted. Ryan!
