  1. AMD Processors - nForce 630a without AHCI

    It is hard to find people who have NVIDIA GeForce 7025 / nForce 630a chipset in this community. Maybe if you rename or move the thread "nForce 630a without AHCI" or something we would find more people with same problems and together would find out what will work for our chipsets
  2. AMD Processors - nForce 630a without AHCI

    When everything will work, I will post the steps to your thread "AMD working Builds", how I get it stable on my PC. Before one year I had fully stable system with Mac OS X 10.6.8, but only 32-bit was work because then I had problems with nForceATA kext and 64-bit. My specs was: Motherboard: MSI K9N Neo V3 CPU: AMD Athlon64 X2 5000+ Brisbane GPU: MSI Geforce 8600 GT 512MB RAM: 2GB KIngston 800MHz DDR2

    Yes. I installed 10.8.2 with verdant's tutorial.
  4. AMD Processors - nForce 630a without AHCI

    Hi! As I see, you have the same chipset as my motherboard. I will tell you what I did and where I am now. First of all I needed a running Mac system. In BIOS there is no option for AHCI, only IDE or RAID. Only method what was work to me is Downloaded boot-kabyl-bumby.zip, and booted in to hazard installation dvd with "-v -busratio=11 maxmem=4096". My cpu is AMD Phenom X4 9550 it works on 2200 MHz, the bus speed is 200 MHz, so the multiplier (busratio) is 11. I think the kernel which is on dvd does not recognizes more then 4 GB RAM. So booted in to install and selected: Modbin_Kernel NVInject AppleAzaliaAudio RTL8139_Ethernet AppleRTC LegacyAppleRTC SATA_ATA_Fix AMD Patch After install finished, I booted up the system and found out, almost nothing works. Only LAN and sound works for me. So I started reading verdant's tutorial. My system does not recognized non USB devices I attached (The solution was to turn off Legacy USB in BIOS. If you turn off this, then USB keyboard and mouse won't work until you get in OS. In Chameleon neither works.) so I managed to use an old internal hard disk. Downloaded the support files in download section. Got the InstallESD.dmg. From "Part B", "3. Preparing the USB flash drive as a Mac bootable device volume" I did everything what is written. In 4. step I get the GeForce kexts and copied where verdant said to copy (I renamed GeForce.kext to GeForce.kext_ORIG and GeForceGA.plugin to GeForceGA.plugin_ORIG because my GTS 450 would boot up only with "-x" and then I do not have LAN nor sound. With this renaming I can boot up without flags but I don't have graphics acceleration YET). in verdant's support files I found "Extra Folder.pkg", installed it on the disk. Copied: AHCIPortInjector.kext AppleACPIPS2Nub.kext ApplePS2Controller.kext ApplePS2Keyboard.kext ApplePS2Mouse.kext ATAPortInjector.kext JMicron36xATA.kext JMicron36xSATA.kext OpenHaltRestart.kext to Extra/Extensions/ and: AppleNForceATA.imk64bit.kext AppleRTC.MLion.Patched.kext EvOreboot.kext FakeSMC.kext nForceLAN.0.64.5.kext NullCPUPowerManagement.kext VoodooHDA.kext to System/Library/Extensions/ directory on disk. And did the terminal stuff. The kernel I used is from here. After install I had to boot back to install hard disk. Then copy kexts listed above and kernel on the installed system. Reboot and boot into installed system, then install chameleon. I did not tried to install from usb. Maybe if I add to org.chameleon.Boot.plist wait time would work, but not tried YET. The DVD method don't works for me. I burned 20 different DVD's non works. What is working now: LAN network Sound (mic doesn't works) with "GraphicsEnabler=Yes" I can change resolution but no graphics acceleration USB devices works if Legacy USB is disabled in BIOS (USBBusFix=Yes not works) or booting with "USBLegacyOff=Yes" sleep wake not works, to be honest I don't like when my machine goes to sleep. I bought my PC to be power on all the time. DVD-RW rom doesn't works. If I put a DVD in the drive, after 5 minutes says I put a blank DVD in the drive. I'll try to make USB installer Sorry for bad english
  5. Hi! I have a problem which is not big. I tried colloquy and linkinus. I have problem in sysinfo with "network traffic". found the problem but I don't know how to fix it. When I write in terminal "netstat -I en0" I get: Which meens I dont receive anything from internet. but when I look to menumeters network traffic,there shows me the total traffic. sorry for my bad english... and thanks for helps OS: iDeneb v1.4 10.5.6 + compo update 10.5.7 processor: AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 5000+ mainboard: MSI K9N Neo v3 (chipset nForce 560) graphics: nVidia GeForce 8600 GT
