  1. I have been noticing this on and off since the beginning of my Snow Leopard hackintosh install, and it is basically the only thing from keeping me content with the installation. I have done a little bit of searching and not been able to find anything regarding this (very lite searching through Google). Basically, I notice that I occasionally have some graphical glitches when using Finder which may cause the buttons to become distorted, along with any dialog popups, and once or twice I've seen the application menu bar even get screwed up. I am attaching a screenshot of the example in Finder. If this requires a complete reinstall of the operating system I am alright with that. This thing has been running smoothly for quite awhile, and I figure with the impeding 10.7 official release I'll spend time to get that up and running as well (if/when). Thanks much!

    I have a Gigabyte board too and basically woke up to this issue. Really blows.

    USB Controller Issues

    I can't get in. Keyboard and mouse don't work and I do not have a PS/2 driver installed.

    This is exactly the issue I have as well, what motherboard do you have?

    USB Controller Issues

    Hey guys, This is not a Mac OS X problem, but I woke up this morning and my keyboard and mouse do not work. I have swapped out the keyboard, disconnected all USB devices and tried several ports. The keyboard works inside of the BIOS, but it did stop several times (while changing settings). I'm worried the host controller is bad on the board, but figured I would ask the community to see if anyone has had any similar issues. Thanks much, jb
  6. I will test tonight. Does anyone know what version the X58a-ud3r runs? Update: Tried just replacing it and running Kext Utility, no go. What do I need to edit if my chipset is different?
  7. The DSDT runs fine but that kext isn't making my audio work.
  8. Do you have a link to your DSDT? You keep mentioning it but I'm not sure where to find it.
  9. Are you using the DSDT from this thread as well?
  10. I think you forgot to post the link to the DSDT :-). I will try the kext from the earlier posts. I need to overwrite the AppleHDA.kext in /System/Library/Extensions and not drop it in E/E? Mucho gracias. Update: Actually, I'm looking at your signature - I have an X58A-UD3R not an EX58-UD3R, are they the same audio chipset?
  11. I was able to get everything working except audio. Been trying since yesterday afternoon but I can't seem to get it working. I am using a different DSDT.aml, but when reading this thread someone mentioned that the Rev1.0 uses the 889a and its slightly different? Does anyone have any luck?
  12. Hey everyone, I just stumbled upon this thread last night. I have a X58a-UD3R Rev 1.0 board and am looking to get OS X running on this bad boy. I'm glad to see that other people have it up with a vanilla kernel. I'm pretty new to this whole shebang - has anyone got the audio working? I am going to run through the install later today (just built my usb drive with the install).
  13. Do you have a link to any instructions that I should follow? I know that some kernel extensions differ depending on the hardware.
  14. I am sure that every day you get someone that comes on here asking if their hardware will work with the project. I have not been by in awhile, and I remember that when I did look into it before it seemed that some of my components were not working properly so I decided to go with a Linux installation. It has been a year now, we've seen a new release of OS X, and I am yearning to really get my hands on a hackintosh installation on my main desktop machine. But I wanted to run it by some people that would be able to give me pointers. I do not have the exact board specifications, I could go look, but I think some of you guys would be able to tell me quickly if it is even worth the trouble of throwing a second hard-drive in and attempting the installation never having installed OSx86 before.
