  1. Hello! I have a serious problem with OS X partition on my mac, and I hope you can help me. OS X on my mac was acting weird lately and one day it just did not boot. I checked the disk with Disk Utility from install dvd, it says the disk is not repairable. I have two partitions on this disk, one of them is acting normally, but another is failing, so I don't think it's a hardware problem. This partition even doesn't mount as external drive on another OS X. I tried DiskWarrior, but no luck, it said that it couldn't repair the partition. What is interesting though, when I boot OS X on this partition in single user mode, it boots with continuous messages about no free space on the disk (0 bytes), though I had 130GB of free space in this partition. I can even mount the root folder, then boot to the login screen, but after that it hangs. I believe that if system at least boots into console, there is still hope to fix the partition, or at least to make it mountable to get all the info from it. I'd appreciate any advice.
  2. Hello! I've just installed Snow Leopard WWDC build on my MacBook and I have great Wi-Fi problems. It just doesn't work. I mean, Wi-Fi shows up correctly, it connects to my network, but the internet itself doesn't work. I've changed my Airport Express config, did all kinds of restarts, and it doesn't work. However, my iPhone and Dell are successfully connected via this network. Any suggestions? Have anyone else experienced such a problem? Thanks.

    iTunes 7.1 and QT update

    Oh, I have problems with preferneces in iTunes 7.1 on my amd hackintosh. Opening Preferences from the menu cause hanging of iTunes. If I open Preferences by the shortcut, they appeared, but categories are empty, and iTunes crashed after few seconds. I've never heard about this kind of problem before. What can I do?
  8. Hi all! I have Asus A8N-SLI Premium mobo. I have nForce 4 SATA working, and even with Disc Utility. But sometimes, may be once a day system hangs at all or gives me kernel panic. I haven't these bugs before (when I haven't nf4-sata driver). P.S. I'm using JaS 10.4.8 sse2.sse3 with PPF.
  9. I've understood why this driver can't see our drives. Sorry for my english, it's rather hard to explain, but I'll try to. When we install IOATAFamily.kext with bikedude's script, system caches (Extensions.kextcache, Extensions.mkext) are removed. So, at the first boot after installation of the kext, all extensions are need to be loaded. And the first boot is succesfull. At the second boot all extensions don't need to be loaded cause Extensions.mkext and Extensions.kextcache are existing in system after the first boot. And with these caches bikedude's driver can't see all drives. I don't know why it is so, but it's the fact.
  10. On my second boot it doesn't see all my drives and on boot it always writes smth like "couldn't alloc class "AppleIntelICH7XSATA"
  11. New version of driver doesn't see my SATA-drive But SMART status of my IDE-drive is now enabled!!

    iTunes Store account

    Yes, you can creat paypal account as us citizen without credit card. But you can't use it in iTunes Store, because you have to use credit card to buy music in iTUnes Store even if you are using paypal. I've tried today to use paypal us account without credit card in iTunes Store, but I had no luck. May be somebody knows another way
