  1. As a footnote to my MBP 2011 AHCI mod, I did a bit of testing with the RST driver. Using the newest bootcamp 5.1 software Intel RST drivers 11.2 and below the windows bootcamp control panel is still broken with the usual startup disk error, however if your chipset supports 11.7 and above hey presto the windows control panel works. I know that means the panel is still broken for Mac Pro 3,1 users as is the newest driver supported, though can't confirm which is the newest on the 4/5,1 towers, until I get my 5,1 my clients for all are on the 1008 driver which doesn't suffer from the 3tb formatting bug and don't think would appreciate me asking to test on cheesegraters doing constant work. The RST driver sets are here: http://www.win-raid.com/t2f23-Intel-...QL-v-WHQL.html Update via Device manager, update driver, choose the path of the extracted driver. If supported it will update. The driver only is fine, the driver plus RST app requires .net, is slow to start and a waste of resources on startup. You'll need a 2nd restart after it loads the new driver for your boot drive.
  2. Found a working 2011 patchcode here: http://www.ocztechnologyforum.com/forum/showthread.php?87950-Enabling-AHCI-for-Windows-on-MBP-2011-now-possible Worked on my 17 inch late 2011 perfectly. Also for the inexperienced pretty good instructions I'd say. It's on the forum now where it belongs patchedcode.zip
  3. I've sent Euclid1 a pm - hopefully he will have it or some other kind person here or on macrumors and then I'll stick it up on mega for everyone
  4. Has anyone got Euclid1's patchcode.bin for the Sandy Bridge MBP models? I've lost mine somehow somewhere and the rapidshare link provides no file, just a sign in. Of all the AHCI mods I've done it had to be mine I've come unstuck with Thanks in advance!
  5. First of all let me say that Apple and all the other forums cant or don't want to help with this issue and you guys seem to be the only ones with the know how to help. This isn't for a hackintosh installation but for Apple's products, in particular the Core i5/i7 Macbook Pro models which hangs after booting off the current retail 10.6.3 DVD. Apple havent yet released a 10.6.4 DVD so therefore I wish to integrate the combo 10.6.5 pkg into the retail 10.6.3 so I can boot off the DVD and start the SL installer. I've tried using SIU to slipstream and failed miserably, being a relative Mac novice compared to Windows doesnt help either so I was wondering if someone here could give me some clues as to what to do! Many thanks in advance!
