    ATI HD 5770

    Trauma!: Thank you for your work! Now I can boot with "GraphicsEnabler=On"! The graphics card is now identified: However, screen detection does still not work, I can't chose any screen resolution! How can I fix that? And I don't quite understand: Is this an ADDITION to regular drivers (e.g. from Netkas), or is this a REPLACEMENT?
  2. Hello! I want to install Snow Leopard (10.6.0 Retail disc) on my machine: My hardware: Intel Core 2 Duo E6300 Gigabyte GA-965P-DS3 ATI Radeon HD 5770 6 GB RAM I tried several "bootloaders" (Empire EFI from CD, [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] from CD, Chameleon 2 RC4 from USB Stick) to start the installation from the retail disc, but it always stops at this point at the very beginning: Directly after this point, the screen turns black, the cooler of my ATI HD 5770 turns up and a loud "BEEEP" noise appears. (I think it comes from the graphics card, but I'm not sure, may be from the motherboard either.) I think this problem may be related to the graphics card, but I'm not sure. The graphics card is: ATI VGA Controller [1002:68b8] :: PciRoot(0x0)/Pci(0x1,0x0)/Pci(0x0,0x0) (as you can read on the screenshot) On my custom Chameleon 2 RC4-installation on USB-stick, I used "Graphics-Enabler = Yes", the other boot-CDs have been left untouched. What is wrong?
  3. Hi! I just installed OS X on my machine, but I am unable to to boot it, it always hangs on the following "restart"-message: View Screenshot When I boot the system with "-v -s" it shows the following output: View Screenshot What is wrong?
  4. No, the X1950 Pro is also available as a PCI-E card.
  5. OK, I'll try that. Damnit, there are millions of f***ing Unix-texteditors, who knows them all? I tried nano and pico, but that's it. On good old MS-DOS, there just was "Edit.com" and it was sufficient
  6. How dumb do you think I am? :pirate2: Of course the chain0-File is in the root of the first partition (Vista)! Anyway, in the mean-time I found the real issue: The Darwin-bootloader is successfully loaded by the chain0-method, but the default selection in that bootloader is the Windows OS. That's why it always jumps back to the Windows bootloader. And unfortunately there is 0-sec-timeout, so that's why I can't see the Darwin-Loader but just a short flashing. So all I have to do is to edit "com.apple.Boot.plist" and change the timeout-value. But how the hell do I edit that file? "nano" is not included on the OSX-boot-dvd, and I don't see any other possibility to access that partition!
  7. Hi there! I just try set up my trippleboot-machine (Vista, XP, OS X), but there are problems booting into OS X. When I manually activate the OS X-Partition, OS X boots fine. But when I try to boot it using the Vista-Loader or the NTLoader from WinXP and the chain0-File, there is just some short flickering and I'm back at the Win-Bootloader. This is my partition structure: I already tried everything mentioned in the Wiki: 1. Partition type is AFh ("HFS+", as you can see on the screenshot). 2. Boot sector seems to be valid (ends with AA55h). 3. OSX is installed on a primary partition BEFORE the extended/logical partitions (you can see that on the screenshot, too). What else can I do to boot using chain0? And don't want to activate the partition manually everytime I want to boot OS X, and I don't want to use any other bootloader either.

    Bad colors

    Hi! I just installed the MacVidia driver. Now I can finally use my LCD-screen at 1280x1024. But unfortunately the colors are much worse than before. The monitor is set to "16.7 million colors", but the quality is just bad. The menus, pictures, and everything else looks crappy How can I fix that?
