  1. [GUIDE] (10.5.x) Gigabyte GA-P35-DS3 Retail Tutorial

    Yeah definitely. No problem. I agree. Sometimes the database on this forum just becomes so irregularly slow! (Don't kill me, mods! ) Do you mind helping me put a link to my blog also? (http://thequantumbyte.com) Perhaps just after the red words in your first post where you linked the file? That would be great, thanks.
  2. [GUIDE] (10.5.x) Gigabyte GA-P35-DS3 Retail Tutorial

    Hi all, Thanks CaptainNemo for your fantastic guide. I've put together the whole thing in a printable PDF document for easy reference. Credit of course goes to CaptainNemo, but it did take me awhile to format everything nicely! Well here it is, for those who need. Enjoy! P.S. Remember, if this works out well and you like OS X, please support Apple by buying a mac! GUIDEGigabyteGA_P35_DS3RetailTutorial.pdf

  4. [GUIDE] (10.5.x) Gigabyte GA-P35-DS3 Retail Tutorial

    Hi CaptainNemo, I just bought a Samsung SATA DVD drive for quite cheap. Question is, do I stick it into the orange or yellow or purple ports? Does it matter which I stick it into since they are all SATA? Also, I seem to be able to write maximum 6x speed, although my dvd is "up to 16x", and my new drive is 22x. Also, just noticed a setting in BIOS called "Onboard SATA device mode" or something like that, and I can select from "IDE" and "AHCI". Do you know what that is? Another thing, whilst my audio works, my audio in ports don't seem to work. Know why that is? Thanks! Apart from that I've got a perfect system running!

    Thanks CaptainNemo, for your answer. I agree with you. The best thing for me to do now is to get a new SATA DVD Drive. Do you know if I can get any one, or will there be compatibility issues with drivers or anything like that? Or, as long as its a sata interface, it's fine? Thanks
  6. [GUIDE] (10.5.x) Gigabyte GA-P35-DS3 Retail Tutorial

    @CaptainNemo: I followed your older tutorial to install 10.5.6 onto my Gbyte P35-DS3P (not retail, but Kalyway). Everything works well except my IDE CD/DVD drive. When I burn stuff onto it, the whole system freezes. I know this has to do with the JMicron.kext, which I replaced with a patched version last time to fix the kernel panic problem. What should I do in this instance? Thanks for the guide. Will use this method next time.

    Wow thanks for this CaptainNemo, it will definitely come in handy before the 10.5.7 update.
  8. I’m sure many people have pined for a hotrock electric guitar and a pumped up amplifier that can power an entire stadium for all your dream solo rock concerts. Let me show you how to achieve that this very second, with nothing more than your iPhone and GarageBand ‘09 on your mac. Let’s get started! Check out the full details here: http://www.thequantumbyte.com/2009/03/tuto...-in-garageband/

    Hey, is there no 'safer' way to do this? I always get extremely nervous when messing with AppleSMBIOSEFI. Or, did this work for you flawlessly? Thanks.

  12. Ultimate Gigabyte GA-P35-DS3 Rev1 Guide for Leopard

    Hi Captain Nemo Thanks for your great guide. I've got several issues with my build: 1) IDE DVD drive freezes the system only when burning DVDs: will deleting Jmicron.kext as you described help this? I had an earlier problem where I kept getting kernel panics, and I replaced my Jmicron.kext with another one I found somewhere on this forum. That issue is now solved, but not the issue with the IDE DVD drive. 2) I don't have sound in: will installing HDAenabler and ACinject help here? 3) I've got problems with iTunes sharing, iTunes remote for iPhone, and other seemingly bonjour services. You also described that this problem can be solved using the Reatek NIC patch. Will this help? My ethernet was working out of the box. Sorry to ask questions you perhaps already answered. This is my main machine and I just want to be VERY careful with what I do. Thanks a million again!
  13. Hi all, I'm experiencing a little problem with my Gigabyte GA-P35-DS3P mobo desktop running Kalyway's 10.5.6. Every time I burn a DVD, OS X freezes up and I get the spinning beachball. I can move my cursor but I cannot click on anything. The only way out is to force reboot. The only I can deduce that is wrong are the JMicron kexts that used to cause frequent kernel panics. I replaced those with patched ones on this forum and that problem is solved. However, this new problem has crept up. Does anyone know a fix? Thanks Isaac.
