  1. i'll have to try without the .rom-file. i realized that the current solution wasn't perfect when the computer just hard locked every time i tried to start it without the TV plugged in and turned on.
  2. Try using the NVEnabler that idoc uploaded, I'm using it right now and it works great. Huge thank you to idoc!
  3. You shouldn't ever need to reinstall to solve a kernel panic. It may be the easiest solution but it's usually not the most favorable. You should boot up with the -v parameter and try to figure out on what it panics, usually you can then google on the error that you are getting to come up with a solution. Otherwise, you can try to boot with -s or -x and delete the faulty kext, it all depends on what you are getting. On the subject of 10.6.4, safe to upgrade? Netkas said that nothing interesting were in it, but has anyone tried yet? Don't want to be stuck without audio or something.
  4. QE/CI on ATI Radeon HD3850

    try netkas exotic qe/ci fix from netkas.org. works for the 4000-series at least. note that you will probably have to edit one of the kexts to include your device id.
  5. dude clicktoflash has been around since forever.
  6. Are you just supposed to extract the NVIDIA.rom-file from your graphics card and use it with Chameleon, or is any modifications of it required?
  7. PANIC : AMD Phenom II X4 945 3.0gHz

    you're not trying to run vanilla kernel on an amd, are you?
  8. I'm using GraphicsEnabler, yes. I doubt that the DSDT that cartri uses would make that much of a difference from mine, however, I will look into it. Thank you.
  9. I'm using Kakewalk 2.0 with a EP45-DS3L and a XFX Geforce 9800GT doubledvi atm, with 10.6.2. I'm fairly certain that Kakewalk comes with a patched DSDT and the latest version of the Aserebln bootloader. It would seem that Kakewalk comes with everything your guide suggests, but using my old (~3 years) Samsung 19" screen together with my new 32" HDTV (dvi-hdmi adapter) resulted in a blackscreen when I upgraded to 10.6.2, and I would think that the same issue would be present in 10.6.3 too. Am I missing something here? Thanks.
  10. you can use chameleon/pc efi and set windows 7 to boot by default. i dont know if that solves your issue but i thought that it doesn't hurt to post it anyway. "for default boot partition add this to Boot.plist <key>Default Partition</key> <string>hd(x,y)</string> whereas x is your hdd number and y is your partition number (you will get this info in Disk Utility and in Terminal with: diskutil list)" copypasted from the signature FASSL on a site i'm not allowed to link to.
  11. Hello, I'm using a EP45-DS3L with a XFX Geforce 9800GT, 2 DVI-outs. After my previous update to 10.6.2 windowserver started crashing on boot, resulting in a permanent black screen. Unplugging my TV solved this (was using a DVI-HDMI cable to connect it) and I later fixed it by replacing the nvidia kexts for 10.6.1 ones. I am imagining that this new update will cause the problems to surface again. I'm wondering if anyone has got a cleaner fix for this issue? It seems that replacing the kexts with old ones isn't the best solution. Anyone encountered this? Thanks.
  12. Alienware M9700 and OSX?

    Well, anything with an AMD-processor in it will be a huge problem. If you get it running, it will be unstable at best.
  13. Install Windows 7

    I can confirm Karamat's method as working, although I used slightly different steps, that's pretty much what I ended up with. Only downside is that Windows 7 sleep won't work with Windows on a non-active partition, no biggie for me since Windows 7 sleep crashes my computer with or without the Windows partition as active anyway. OSX and Linux sleep works fine though, kind of weird really.
  14. ControllerMate can do that, I guess it's a little complicated but there is a guide somewhere on these forums.
  15. Restore the dvd .dmg file to a thumbdrive using TransMac in Windows. Then just boot the computer using the Kakewalk .iso with the thumbdrive plugged in. After that you just select the USB-drive in the booter and you're good to go. How does your ATI-fix work? Is it similar to netkas exotic qe/ci package or does it work in a completely different way?
