  1. Please PM me if you're interested. Buyer pays $450 + shipping. I am putting up for sale my Hackintosh build. My wife has recently decided she wants to switch to an iMac so I'm offering this complete build up for a steal! All of the parts are HIGHLY compatible with OSX all the way up through Lion. I will not be selling it with OSX pre-installed. That's up to you hackers and tinkerers to take care of. Of course, this would also make a great budget gaming PC or secondary machine in anyone's home. Here is the list of parts - Gigabyte GA-EP35-DS3L Intel Quad Core Q8200 2.33GHz 4GB Crucial Ballistix DDR2 ATI 4850 512MB Corsair 520w Modular PSU 500GB HD DVD-RW Firewire 800 card Firewire 400 card Front panel Firewire 800 Gigabyte Case
  2. Just finished installing 10.6 and then running 10.6.8 combo update. I understand I can type pmVersion=0 to disable the SleepEnabler.kext, but what I do if I don't want to type this every time at the Chameleon screen to get my system to boot? Edit: I see these instructions, but they don't exactly follow the menu prompts in the script so I'm not sure where I should be adding pmVersion=23 because I get turned around "melee54, You can add the pmVersion flag to the boot plist, so it doesn't need to be keyed in at the boot prompt everytime: Go into Plist editor, select plist, Add key and string, choose "pmVersion" and add 23. best of wishes, MAJ"
  3. I've noticed that things have been relatively unstable the past 2 weeks. Not sure if it was an update I installed or what...Any browser I use will just crash randomly at any moment. Whether it's Firefox, Chrome, or Safari. I haven't really seen a pattern. The Console logs reveal no reason why either, just "Firefox exited with an exit code of 1". OS will sometimes randomly crash and require a reboot. It usually comes back up fine, but it's always during something simple I'm doing like just listening to Pandora through the AIR app. Anyways, I'm going to re-install all the kexts again and see if that helps.
  4. This worked perfectly to get my GA-P35-DS3L on 10.6.7. Thank you very much!
  5. Got QE and CI on 8500GT running (10.5.6)

    This worked perfectly to get my 8600 GT 256MB running under 10.6.7. Thanks a ton!
  6. Sony J-30SDI Beta Deck not recognized

    Issue resolved. Tried an old firewire PCI firewire 400 card I had laying around out of desperation and it worked! I wish I knew the model of the card for reference on here in case others are having the same issue. I'll pull it out of the machine when we're done with the project. For reference, the digibeta deck would not recognize on the original card which is an Aaexeon 4 Port PCI Express 400(1394A)/800(1394B) Controller Card. I am however capturing over the dedicated 400 card to an external hard drive connected to the 800 card. Nice that they both have their own bus to run on.
  7. I've had this same issue on both of my Hackintosh setups. One is a GA-P35-DS4 mobo and the other is a GA-EP35-DS3L mobo. Both are vanilla 10.5.8 installs. The Sony J-30SDI simply connects over firewire but isn't picked up in Final Cut or anywhere from what I can see. It is used to capture in Final Cut without any problems on Macbook Pro and Power Mac G5's at the office. Very strange behavior because everything else as far as external hard drives and other devices work great over firewire. I've tried on dedicated PCIe firewire cards with 4-pin power connected and onboard firewire to no avail. The beta deck actually makes my GA-P35-DS4 crash Final Cut and freeze all together. It simply just doesn't show up on the GA-EP35-DS3L, no other erratic behavior. Is this a known limitation with these motherboards as they're both very similar in model. I figured if anything it would work over the dedicated firewire card.
  8. Alright well here is my final setup I'm going to order. I found a card with a 10-pin 1394b internal connector. Also going to order a little adapter for my existing 1394a card so I can hook that up to the Intel front panel bay. Intel 1394a/b usb 2.0 front panel bay Aaxeon FireWire 400(1394A)/800(1394B) 4 Port PCI Express Controller Card - for the Power Macintosh G5 "Dual Core" and "Quad Core", Mac Pro Systems. Fully bootable! IEEE 1394 CABLE 1' - 6 PIN M TO 2X5 M
  9. Found a 5.25" bay, Koutceh 7293 Wish they had it in black... EDIT: And apparently they don't make that anymore. So I've found this one in stock, Intel 1394b front panel However, I'm wondering how to convert one of those pin connectors so I can run it to the port of my internal 1394b port?
  10. I've been searching the vast oceans of the internet for hours in an attempt to find a 1394b (Firewire 800) 5.25" internal bay. My plan is to run it to a PCI card with an internal 1394b connector. Here is the PCI card I plan on using that has the 1394b connector. 7-Port NitroAV FireWire 800/1394b & USB2.0/1/1 ComboProfessional PCI Host Adapter Interface I'd really prefer not to spend $90 on that either, but it's all I can find with the internal 1394b connector that I could feed to a 5.25" bay. Ideally, the 5.25" bay would have 1394a/b, eSATA, and USB 2.0. I don't feel like that's a tall request but apparently I'm in the minority here. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
  11. Finally had time to try the time fix. It worked perfectly. Thanks again. I find I'm still spending more time in Vista after all the work I put into getting Leopard up and running. The main thing that's holding me back is that I haven't found a good way to share my torrents in OSX. I tried installing uTorrent for OSX and then attempted to load up all my torrent files from my Vista drive. It turned out to be a complete disaster. Plus uTorrent for Mac doesn't provide any sort of way to redirect the download location so it can run a checksum and start seeding the torrents again from my RAID. I installed VMware and loaded up my Vista hard disk as a VM and that was a disaster too. Also need a good alternative to Newsleecher for OSX. Haven't found a good alternative to Steinberg Wavelab either for OSX. These are the main things that are holding me back from taking the full OSX plunge and why I still spend 85-90% of my time in Vista.
  12. Oh wow, that looks like it will do the trick! I'll try it out when I get home. Thanks for the link.
  13. Something that's really bugging me, though very minor... After booting into OSX, when I restart my machine and choose to boot into VistaX64 my clock is always moved ahead 6 hours. I can't think of any reason why this would happen, but it's really annoying to have to dial back the clock everytime I boot into Vista after booting into OSX. The clock is right in my BIOS. The clock is is right in OSX. The clock will stay correct in Vista, UNTIL I boot into OSX at which point it sets itself ahead 6 hours. Has anyone seen this?
  14. I see. I was just giving you a hard time. I basically had the same problem you did, but because Vista has a built-in AHCI driver I could at least boot with AHCI turned on to run the .exe from Gigabyte's site.

    I experienced similar troubles. After putting the original openGL.framework back in place things started going my way.
