  1. I believe I figured out the problem that was causing the occasional slow boot time / choppy audio combo. Apparently when upgrading from Windows 8 to Windows 8.1, a 600mb Windows RE partition is automatically created in the front of the partition table. OS X doesn't like when the EFI partition isn't first, so if you can move the EFI partition to be first it should fix the random bad booting problem. I just deleted the recovery partition and extended the EFI partition into it (using Partition Wizard for Windows) and so far my boots have been consistent with no more choppy audio.
  2. (surfaceosx) If you happen to find out a solution to this, it would be very helpful if you could share! I've had the same issue on mine, and I also noticed that on bad boots the launchpad app arrangement gets reset to default and the color profile doesn't load by default. I get bad boots with and without voodoohda and have had it across 3 separate OS X installs, but I still can't seem to find anything that affects their frequency or behavior. I'm currently dual booting with Windows 8.1 and I'm fairly certain it has something to do with my EFI partition. In disk utility it shows 4 partitions - disk0s1 (630mb, no info), disk0s3 (134 mb, Microsoft Reserved), Windows, and OS X. When mounting the efi partition with clover configurator, I get a message saying "Unexpected disk identifier: disk0s2", but it still mounts iff it was a "good" boot. Any help is appreciated, thanks!
  3. Hi there. I recently upgraded from my Asus G50-vt (running Snow Leopard perfectly) to a G60-jx and I've been having a few problems. Firstly, I installed using a retail 10.6.0 disc and Empire EFI, I only modified the osinstalls. It installs OK, but when it gets to the very end, it says a problem occurred and that OS X can't be installed. It seems fine after I reboot though. So now most of my kexts work except the video card. To get it working, I need to update to 10.6.3 for the macbook pro software update. The problem is, whenever I try that, it gets a kernel panic, combo or not, and I can only restart in single user mode. I figure this could be because I'm still booting with Empire EFI, so I try installing chameleon RC3 (with the pkg) to use my dsdt.aml and what not, but that says there's an error while installing as well. I did find another version which installs fine (RC2 perhaps?), but after I select the partition while booting, it just restarts immediately after the apple logo. My main hardware is: -Intel i5-430m 2.26GHz -4gb DDR3 -Nvidia GeForce GTS 360m -500gb SATA (installed onto 60gb primary HFS+ partition) I'm close to just giving up for a while, so I figured I'd ask around on these forums for help. Thanks!
  4. Thanks for the great tutorial, but is it possible to install Snow Leopard onto your pre-existing 10.5 partition? I only have about 20 gigs open (total) and I don't want to install it onto my external HD.
  5. Hi. Chameleon looks a lot nicer than the windows boot manager, so I decided to be dumb and make it so that the boot manager automatically boots to chameleon with no timeout, but I forgot that choosing windows from chameleon actually loads the boot manager, not the operating system. So is there a way to fix my mistake since leopard has access to the vista partition? Thanks!!

    Any luck with HDMI output with QE or Snow Leopard?

    Has anyone gotten the touchpad to scroll? Tapping works but not scrolling (one or two finger). I've tried the VooDooPS2Controller but that just messed it up.

    I think you also need the acpi fix, nvdarwin512mb, and ps2 keyboard fix. don't worry, you're almost done

    Well, if you erase your 20 gig partition and follow this guide (just for creating a leopard partition) then disk management will probably recognize it. Good luck!

    Well I used the official apple update to get to 10.5.7. You install it just like normal, but after it reboots you have to put in the iPC disk and reinstall all of your drivers/fixes while making sure that the base system is not reinstalled. As for the partition, you have to use the disk utility while on iPC (it's in the menu bar). Click on the partition that you're trying to install OS X on and reformat it as MAC OSX Journaled Extended. After that it should show up without having to change anything in the bios

    Just a note to anyone like me who installed OS X using IPC (without a modded bios), if you try the nvidia driver in Obliviux's 2nd post on this page, you'll get a message that 'your computer isn't supported', but you can still get it to work with IPC. Oh, and thanks a ton Obliviux, you made my life a lot easier when installing os x. So here's how I got it to work. First off, you must be on 10.5.7. I did do something wrong, but all I know is that using this and Obliviux's modded nvinject I got a black screen. Then I restarted with the IPC install disk and customized it without installing the base system or anything, just the nvdarwin512mb and when it rebooted it fixed my resolution automatically and I now have QE enabled. I'm guessing I only had to reinstall the nvdarwin because I tried the nvidia drivers for the wrong graphics card, but I can't test it now so if you do it like I did I can pretty much guarantee that it will work. By the way I'm using a G50vt-x5. Hope this helps some people!
