  1. nVidia GTX460

    Hi all, Very keen to see this little card get up and working - like many my first Hackintosh is now a mature 12 months old built on EP45-UD3LR C2D 3GHz, and N/GTX-250. Configured as per the Doom42 guide it's been super stable for 12 months now. Used for everything including lots of reliable gaming. Im now keen to go again with an i5/i7 and a nice mid range vid card like the 460. The reviews in Atomic magazine indicate that this is a really energy efficient video card and the price is right for a hobby build Hackintosh. The ATI alternatives seem a bit tricky - so this guy is right on the mark for me. Best of luck to the uber-techies who may be looking at the 460 - go you good things! C//
  2. I've had a couple of questions from fellow UD3LR owners: (if your system looks like mine, this may do the trick) Gigabyte EP45-UD3LR / C2D 3.0GHz / 4Gigs Ram Gigabyte 9800GT 512 (Using 8800GT EFI String for now - system reports it as 8600GT tho?) Chameleon RC2 (standard issue, no RC3 Boot) Snow Leopard 10.6.1 The working DSDT file from my system: DSDT.aml.zip The Legacy HDA.kext file that JFLNYC posted on page 58. LegacyHDA.kext.zip Follow Doom42's guide to the letter for getting your UUID info into the smbios.plist file, and the PlatformUUID.kext. You have to do this as the UUID of your hard Disk will change everytime you format it. Follow the guide again for getting the EFI string for your video card, or you may be able to use mine if you have a Gigabyte 9800GT 512. com.apple.Boot.plist.zip Put all these in your Extra folder so it looks like this: At this point once I had all the files for my Extra folder I went to Nullspots USB guide included in Doom42's guide. (I am sure that either install method will work, it is just the flow of my adventures that led me this way.) Good Luck UD3LR'rs!
  3. I described this situation to a linux mate at work today and he said that he has seen this many time in linux world when SATA drives are moved around to different ports. This is actually what I had done: Just before I went out I'd swapped the SL drive that was originally set up in Sata port 4 onto Sata Port 1, and vice versa with the 10.5.7 drive. I'd booted SL then later hot plugged in the 10.5.7 drive. He reckons even though the UUID stuff is set, that somewhere, something somehow retains the setting, maybe to do with AHCI?? Dunno, i thought the SATA drives were fully swappable - thoughts? Seeya.
  4. Hi all! (My first post) I'm in the same situation as above. I've followed the guide as far as possible and have edited and compiled a new DSDT. Everything is rock solid except for sound which doesn't work at all. (It's easily as solid as my 10.5.7 which is sitting on a separate drive) I have also tried all the legacy sound kexts included in the SL pack, but I think I may be missing something with setting these up. (I'm dragging these one at a time into the Extras\Extensions directory and rebooting - is that all I need to do?) Gigabyte EP45-UD3LR Gigabyte 9800GT 512mb (Using the 8800GT EFI String) 8400 C2D 3.0 Ghz If someone with a working EP45-UD3LR could post the section of the DSDT they have successfully patched for the 888 it would be greatly appreciated. Here is what my edited version looks like for the 888. (Comments added for this post only) Thanks, Celt.
