  3. ASUS 9600GT 512MB - Graphics Channel Timeout

    Any headway with this?
  4. NVChannel(GL): Graphics channel exception!

  5. Vmware on hackintosh

    Parallels 5 requires single cpu mode (in the Configuration of the VM) on first boot of the VM'd environment. Then can set back to dual.
  6. I have used Skype and GoogleChat cross platform very successfully.
  7. So my fiance is watching Plex and doing homework on her account. I log in from near by using VNC Screen Sharing, but I log into my account (set up with VineServer). Works great! The system is a dual monitor configuration, I can pick which monitor, etc. Love it. However, her videos in plex crawl to a pause, but audio is fine. If I log out, it quickly catches up (video) to the audio. I believe if she puts the FOCUS on the program, it also catches up. It was hard to get her to stop clicking it (focus only, not play/pause, it is always playing (audio) ). How can I fix this? I want to be able to log in remotely and look at things moving while she is at the desktop working. Ideas? [i do want to check/test this with VLC/another video player, but I would imagine it's all video]
  8. What step am I missing

    Notes... 92fs w and w/ EFI string osx86tools - Black Screen NVKushINstaller - black screen Osx86 EFI + touching/clearing, Custom GeForce - Black Screen - Removed EFI string - black screen I am using Carbon Copy to restore from scratch partition to main each time. I have a Palit 8400GS 512mb PCI-E. Arrived today! Why can't I just use EFI string for this card from OSX86Tools or Efi Studio? (I tried, it didn't work) Argh! Is it because I am using Carbon Copy? Do i need to do some chown root:wheel mojo? I don't remember!! Device ID: 0x06e4 Revision ID: 0x00a1 Vendor: NVIDIA (0x10de)
  9. Latitude D620 Install Guide

    Just to help those that find this page... D620 D630 http://osx86sv.wordpress.com/2009/10/23/os...ude-d630c-d630/ " oday I am sharing a tutorial on how to install OS X 10.6 on a DELL Latitude D630C / D630 Stuff you need You’ll need to purchase OS X 10.6 at your local Apple store then you need to acquire the following distro “Mac OS X Snow Leopard Universal v3.5″ please do ask where to get it, you know where to find it anyways. Download this ..:: FILE ::.. indispensable for D630 and 630C. Download Bootloader2 to boot your installation disk and your new HD install. Lets install Snow Leopard! 1. Partition your USB drive or pen drive to have two GUID partition (if you are going to use this as main drive) or one partition if you already have a disk for the install and this will only be your install drive. 2. Install Bootloader2 on both partitions, move the boot file from my folder to your partition/s. It is an hidden file so oyu might want to use terminal mv "location of my boot file" "root of your partition/s" 3. Using Windows or Disk Utility on OSX, restore the ISO in one of your partition which you selected as install partition. 5. Boot your D630 or D63C from USB and follow the OS X onscreen instruction. 6. When you see a Customize button on the bottom right, click on it and select every single kexts and deselect the snow bootloader since you already have Bootloader2. 7. The installation will finish and you are ready to boot into Snow and repair permissions. 8. Proceed to Software Update and get 10.6.1 without any trouble! NOTE Should something go wrong, hit tab at start up and boot with -v for verbose, this will tell you what’s stopping you from booting. If you are still having trouble, I made a package to help out further but requires a running version of OSX either 10.5 or 10.6, this is what you will do from that computer. Plug your USB with the installed 10.6 and move the contents of Extensions into your Extra/Extensions from the root of the disk. Next, move the contents of Kext into your System/Library/Extensions. Then open Disk Utility, right click on your disk and get your unique ID aka UUID, copy this large number and paste it in two places: smbios.plist under the field “UUID-GOES-HERE!” Extra/Extensions/PlatformUUID.kext/Contents/Info.plist Lastly copy Kext Utility into your desktop, drop the Extra folder on the Kext Utility icon. Do the same with your System/Library/Extensions folder. This last step will create 2 brand spanking new Extensions.mkext " ------------------------------------ and from the 10.6.0 HCL...

  10. What step am I missing

    Running 10.5.8 (Apple Update, thx Vanilla Kernel!). What software? I found UInstaller, but still didn't have the card listed. Thinking of buying another video card that IS in the list... but worried I am doing something else wrong. p3 [Also tried custom EFI string, black screen] DVI + VGA, both black.
  11. What step am I missing

    I see I shouldn't be doing those RMs and I've been hampering myself with that... Did another clean install with no gfx specified. Tried 9f23...pgk + EFi studio for 7200GS 256 (mine is detected at 512mb, which it is). Black screen. Same with just 9f23 with no EFI. I am pretty sure I had to do a 'custom efi' and put in the 3 numbers, I just forget where to do that/how. Been looking (2am), but was pretty fried. Link/ideas?
  12. Put old bios back on... or look to see what got 'turned on' (or off!) in the bios that's upsetting osx.

Spending many hours here, can I get a hand that will point me in the right direction? I just can't remember how I did it. I had dual screen working... thought I had natit dual 0.02 and nvinstaller, but I've tried those as well. When I get my black screen, I clean up with "1.) rebooted with -s option 2.) mount -uw / 3.) changed to Extensions : cd System/Library/Extensions 4.) deleted all Geforce and Nvidia-, NVinject-, NVDarwin-, NVKush- etc. kexts & caches by: rm -r Ge*.* && rm -r NV*.* && rm -r ../Extensions.mkext Help! 10.5.6 from iPC Vanilla Kernel VIa/Sis/SB chipset ALC888 DualVSTA PS2Keyboard Fix EFI studio, Osxtools, and Kext Helper on install.
