  1. Hello, thank you so much for your help and making the legacyHDA available! unfortunately, my machine still has no sound, and i guess this is because i have a 889A chip. and the Kext Helper is a great little application ! thanks, i'll post when i succeed with the 889A on my GB EP45T board ! andreas
  2. hello, thank you for your advice. have not been able to get the LegacyHDA kext yet, not sure what is a good version for 889A & 10.6.4,,,,, if you are using 10.6.4, where did you get your LegacyHDA ? also, when you state /S/E/E, this would be 'System/Library/Extensions' or am i missing something ? as a non-savvy pc/linux guy, i also have a lot of warnings when i copy& delete the AppleHDA kext from the systems extension folder,,, any advice for these operations without using the terminal ? thanks, >oh, and as my board is a EP45T-UD3R, there are dstl files for these boards to dl, but with the [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] method i chose to go with dstl automatic generation. maybe i should try to use a specific dstl file instead??
  3. hello, i installed osx 10.6.4 using TonyMac's [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] Universal on a GB EP45T-UD3R board with the alc 889a soundcard (use HD audio). i got my graphic card recognized after installing NVenabler and sleep working with Sleepenabler . for sound i use two kexts; AppleHDA & HDAEnabler,, the sound is present as working in system preferences pane, but no sound,,, (got 3 choices in pref's pane; external microphone, line out, digital line out) anybody encountered this problem, or knowns how to fix this ? >i not very tech savvy, so kext method seems simplest ? thank you,
  4. hello, was just able to finally DL the SL_Pack_v4.zip from the same link as before,,, if anybody have troubles still, it is just a 7.6 mb file,,,, andreas
  5. hello, also unable to DL the SL_Pack_v4.zip from the proposed link. anybody able to make the files available, maybe as a .torrent ? a
  6. Hi, well, as the EP45T-UD3R motherboard does not appear in the Kakewalk list, i tried with the EP45T-UD3LR. i am not able to get into the BIOS settings, the computer always goes straigth to launch chameleon,,, i did download and install another DSDT.aml file for this specific board from http://efixusers.com/showthread.php?t=38 but still no BIOS,,, and the startup screen is very bad resolution with black edges,,, this is not at all the case with my pc with a EP45-UD3P board,,, any ideas ? >> FW & Sound not working either,,,
  7. hi, i have a different board,,, not the LR, but the R,,, EP45T-UD3R as the Kakewalk does not seem to be ok with my motherboard, i wonder if anyone with the exact same board has any advice ?
  8. HI, that is very good news ! what motherboard did you chose when installing Kakewalk ? >i used the usb solution with the EP45T-UD3LR board choice what happens to me is that i am unable to get sound, no FW and not capable of getting into my BIOS settings,,, Chameleon seems to run like on the first boot every boot,,, any ideas what goes wrong here ? i did install Kakewalk successfully on a EP45-UD3P, and have no problems even in 10.6.3,,, andreas
  9. Hello, i've got a gigabyte EP45T-UD3R motherboard, but this does not go down well with latest Kakewalk,,, anybody have installed osx 10.6 successfully on this board ? (w. FW & DDR3) a > i tried w. the EP45T-UD3LR patch,,, >>maybe better to use the patch for EP45-UD3R ? (have a EP45T-UD3R)
  10. Hello, just wanted to post as i successfully installed OSX SL on my PC with the method in this thread. For those that have a 9600 GT graphics card with 512mo Vram, i tried many different solutions, but in the end it turned out that by using EfiStudio, and selecting the 9600 GTX+ 512mo card to generate the device code, OSX recognizes this card (i have a GIGABYTE GV-N96TSL-512I) with full support altough it lists as a GTX+ card. >>the 1024mo 9600 GT card option in EfiStudio does NOT work with a 512mo card,,,!! lol, i tried,,, As for those who are complete new to the PC world (like me), when you are asked to boot in "-v -x32", this actually means you have to specify this in the "com.apple.Boot.plist" like this <key>Kernel Flags</key> <string>-v -x32</string> As mentioned (but not explained) in this tutorial, this is important to do.. The only problem i have now is that Adobe CS3 wont install on a case sensitive system,,,,
  11. for a complete idiot, when u boot in -v,,, how do you do this, u press "-" & "v" directly from startup, or only when u see the boot disk for osx ? >i had everything installed & working great unntill i installed EFI on my primary HD, then both my installation drive or primary HD get kernel panic just after entering apple start-up screen. without changing whatsoever in the extra folder.
  12. Just posting to say thank you, & that i successfully installed SL thanks to your script, and with good help from Ariel Chens Scripts as he has the same board & bios version as i have. However the install drive and the main drive both friezes/Panics at osx startup-screen now,, i understand that the Chameleon install has prompts @ startup, what about the EFI that i used for my SL setup, is there any way to start up in safe mode? >and as i'm pretty lame with pc's & programming, i hope the situation has a simple solution,,, allready changed the enabled usb devices in the bios "integrated Peripherals, with no luck. Do many of you experience friezes/Kernel panic just after successfully installing ? a
  13. EP45-UD3P Retail Method

    RE, my Bios is F9 also,,!
  14. Hello, thank so much for your guide and for answering my post. i did get the SL to work, and i did set my bios to 64bit from the start. But it only recognizes 32mo Vram,, (i used Adam Pash's Lifehacker Bios guide) SL does recognize the prcessor (q9550) and ram. i will look up the vocabulary, guess it is the same technical expressions in french. >i must have read a lot of pages, but i do not understand it very well i guess,, and i've tried 3 different install methods, and using yours, i am quite close to have osx working. i will try the new graphics card string now ! Thank you, andreas
  15. EP45-UD3P Retail Method

    That is damned close to my setup that i have not yet got fully working,,,, believe i am not clever enough to figure out the right dsdt file and the com.apple.boot.plist ,,, my setup; MOBO: GA-EP45-UD3P rev. 1.0 BIOS: euhh, dont know,,, CPU: Q9550 2.88 GHz RAM: 8GB (2GB 800 Dual(pair) x 2) VGA: Gigabyte GV-N96TSL-512I 9800GT 512MB SATA: AHCI Mode i got SL working but only 32mo Vram recognised,,, i used this Guide and the dsdt file in the example as is,,, quite complicated i find the whole dsdt file tweaking,,, in the "EFIStudio" app, the 512mo version of the GT 9600 isn't listed,,, so i believe my com.apple.boot.plist is bad,, ? any chance you could post a link to your set-ups com.apple.boot.plist/dsdt files ? andreas
