    Win 10 strange behavior

    So, I installed Win 10 on a _different_ drive from OS X. After the the install, the computer developed a strange new behaviour - regardless of what the boot drive selected in the BIOS is, after a cold start, the computer boots first using the Win 10 drive. On subsequent reboots (without powering down), the BIOS boot drive setting is honoured. Anyone have any idea what might be going on?
  2. Does one exist? I'd love to get USB 3, but don't even know what chipsets to start looking for.
  3. Fabio - App Store now only allows downloading the 10.7.1 installer. Any idea if Lionize works on that installer as well, or does it require the original 10.7.0 installer?
  4. Right - I can't actually (googling quickly) find a working driver for that chipset. The cheap easy solution to having an external sata port that works using the cold-boot method I mentioned above is to purchase an "sata to esata bracket" such as this one: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16812816068 That effectively connects the drives to an internal SATA port, which doesn't support hot plugging but works otherwise fine. I have one and it works well.
  5. Updated and re-installed, and still failing but in a different spot. Makes me wonder what's wrong. This time I get log rows indicating there's an issue finding files on the hard drive: Sep 12 12:33:36 localhost com.apple.launchd[1] (com.apple.locationd[59]): posix_spawn("/usr/libexec/locationd", ...): No such file or directory Sep 12 12:33:36 localhost com.apple.launchd[1] (com.apple.locationd[59]): Exited with code: 1 Sep 12 12:33:36 localhost com.apple.launchd[1] (com.apple.mDNSResponder[56]): posix_spawn("/usr/sbin/mDNSResponder", ...): No such file or directory Sep 12 12:33:36 localhost com.apple.launchd[1] (com.apple.mDNSResponder[56]): Exited with code: 1 Sep 12 12:33:36 localhost com.apple.launchd[1] (com.apple.netbiosd[121]): posix_spawn("/usr/sbin/netbiosd", ...): No such file or directory Sep 12 12:33:36 localhost com.apple.launchd[1] (com.apple.netbiosd[121]): Exited with code: 1 When I reboot to 10.6.8 and check, the binaries are there.
  6. OS X doesn't support hot-plugging eSata. Assuming the port works, the way you can use it is to power down your machine and the drive, connect them, power up the drive and wait a moment so it spins up, then power up the computer. Does this work for you?
  7. Trying to update my system to Lion using this but it's not working. What's happening: when the installer runs, between each click on the process I get the spinning rainbow cursor. The installer goes through fine and I can boot and run Finalize. I'm installing 10.7.1 but no other updates. Upon booting the system, I first get the Chameleon loader screen with the spinning load indicator, which then changes to Apple's own logo at right screen resolution and the mouse pointer being visible, but the loading stops there. System specs: P6T SE, 8 GB RAM installed, 0805 BIOS installed Asus EAH5770 512MB using the on-board network card & sound I have 10.6.8 installed and working fine. What I've tried already: * replace DSDT with the one I have working on 10.6.8, no effect * run on arch=x86_32, no effect Looking at the logs on the failing drive, all seems to go smooth, until lines like this start to pop up: Sep 11 11:22:57 localhost ReportCrash[148]: Failed to create CSSymbolicatorRef for launchd[124] Sep 11 11:22:57 localhost ReportCrash[148]: Failed to create CSSymbolicatorRef for launchd[44] Sep 11 11:22:57 localhost ReportCrash[148]: Failed to create CSSymbolicatorRef for launchd[49] Sep 11 11:22:57 localhost ReportCrash[148]: Failed to create CSSymbolicatorRef for launchd[121] Sep 11 11:22:57 localhost ReportCrash[148]: Failed to create dSYM-less CSSymbolicatorRef for launchd[49] Sep 11 11:22:57 localhost ReportCrash[148]: Failed to create dSYM-less CSSymbolicatorRef for launchd[121] Sep 11 11:22:57 localhost ReportCrash[148]: Failed to create dSYM-less CSSymbolicatorRef for launchd[124] Sep 11 11:22:57 localhost ReportCrash[148]: Failed to create dSYM-less CSSymbolicatorRef for launchd[44] Googling around I can only find references to Darwin developers saying it's likely caused by a missing dyld, which indicates a package wasn't installed? To be clear, I'm attempting to do a clean installation. Any tips on how to debug this?
  8. Trying to get an ASUS EAH5670 512MB card working with no success with the loader. The card has DVI-I, HDMI and VGA ports. I've tried plugging the monitor to DVi, VGA, DVI using a VGA adapter, HDMI using HDMI-DVI adapter with Vervet, Uakari and Baboon framebuffers, and both the PCI slots 1 and 2. The result is always that the display driver seems to fail in finding the card - when booting in verbose mode, the display updating stops at some point (no black or blue screen) and when booting using the graphic loader screen, the Apple logo with the round loader just never goes away. The HD is still loading something in the back, so the boot seems to continue fine. I'm currently booted on another drive in the same machine. The only difference between the OS installations is that I dumped the ATI drivers altogether. lspci reports: --- 02:00.0 VGA compatible controller [0300]: ATI Technologies Inc Unknown device [1002:68d8] (prog-if 00 [VGA controller]) Subsystem: ASUSTeK Computer Inc.

    OpenCL Benches: OLD

    I got the bench running on a 4870 locally (for some reason, about 2/3rds of the times I launch the bench it fails to draw the graphics correctly) and am getting 84-85 FPS with the white background and blue ball, and 88-89 fps with the textured background & glass ball. Will be interesting to see how this develops if ATI is working hard to improve the drivers.

    How to: ATI 4850 working on SL

    I have a 4870 and under SL, before I put in an EFI string for the card, my machine seemed to freeze in boot on the grey screen. After I put the EFI string in place, the graphics mode starts up, but I get black and white garbage on screen instead of the real graphics mode...
  11. I'm having a weird issue with my Sapphire 4870 Vapor-X 2GB... When I originally installed my hackintosh with iDeneb 1.4, the first time the computer booted up the display worked fine - all resolutions, QE etc worked. At the second boot, the display adapter developed a symptom where after boot, when the display initialized, instead of getting the login screen, I got random black and white garbage on screen. I could see some parts of the B&W junk move on screen when I move the mouse, so the machine hadn't crashed. Unfortunately I didn't document which exact combination of 4870 drivers I mashed up together but I did manage to bring the system back up by combining 4870 drivers from various sources so my 10.5.7 installation works fine. When upgrading to 10.5.8 the computer again developed the same symptoms until I replaced the new ATI drivers with the old ones. Now, when trying to go to Snow Leopard, I'm again having the exact same issue. If I delete all ATI drivers, the display "works" but obviously at low resolution and no acceleration. If I put the ATI drivers back in place, I get the B&W garbage on screen. It seems like the problem is some tiny issue with initializing the screen buffer (or something) but I can't figure out how to fix it. Netkas' drivers don't seem to help and I haven't been able to create an EFI string that'd make a difference. Anyone have ideas or tips?
