  1. OpenGL only Works AFTER Single User

    You're right, ATY_Init is unneeded, so I got rid of it. I'm using the original IOPCIFamily and AppleACPI kexts from lion but also using the npci=0×2000 boot flag I attached my kernel logs. Without the -f -v flags, running something that uses OpenGL gives me the following error: NVDA(OpenGL): Channel exception! exception type = 0xd = GR: SW Notify Error kernel_without__f__v.log.txt kernel_with__f__v.log.txt
  2. OpenGL only Works AFTER Single User

    I believe I have a very similar problem! I too have a Geforce GTX570 (vendor: MSI) and any process that I think involves OpenGl would make my computer unresponsive. Opening any video game or most flash applications would freeze the computer. My chipset model is currently displayed as "unknown" even after editing GF100HAL.kext and installing ATY_Init kext. The graphics card is, however, recognized as an NVIDIA card and other than these issues I have full resolution options and I believe QE is enabled (have transparent menubar, dashboard ripple effect, etc). I tried booting the OS with the -v -f flags and it seems to fix the problem (games and flash videos work), though obviously this is an inconvenient solution.
  3. VIA VT1708S 7.1

    Has anybody had any success getting the optical out to work on VT1708s with Mohamed's posted kexts? Only the analog outputs are working for me. Selecting the optical out does not output any sound for me and when I try to play a song in iTunes, the sound output always reverts to the green analog output even when I have nothing plugged into the analog ports.
  4. AMD and Retail Snow Leopard 10.6.5 --> 10.6.8 Final[GUIDE]

    I updated to 10.6.6 with no apparent issues so far. I downloaded the combo update, reinstalled the legacy kernel (shouldn't be necessary), reinstalled the graphics drivers, and rebooted successfully with the new app store application now greeting me in the dock.
  5. G5 to ATX Front I/O Cables

    AlohaCab - I received the cables today and they are very well constructed and work fantastically! Much thanks!

    Payment sent! Hopefully your fingers will get some rest soon, their handiwork is very much appreciated!
  7. G5 to ATX Front I/O Cables

    Could I join the list to buy one of your G5 Front I/O cables when you make the next batch? I'd greatly appreciate it I tried PMing you but apparently you're very popular as your entire inbox is full!

    You can probably make due with one flash drive by properly partitioning the drive, copying the install disc onto it and then installing chameleon with the appropriate kernel and kexts, but it would probably be easier just to use two flash drives, one for loading a pre-made bootcd and one for loading the install disc.

    I had a similar problem with my ASUS motherboard where setting all of my SATA ports to AHCI would result in only the first three of six ports to be detected. I guess in your case I would recommend using the single available sata port on the hard drive when you have the ports set to AHCI and mirror the install disc and boot disc to flash drives. Then just boot from the flash drives to install everything on to the hard drive. Once you have everything installed you could then install the appropriate kext to gain IDE support and have your dvd drive detected as well.

    Its okay, I think I got it to work just now! I have to disable legacy usb support, which prevents my usb keyboard from working during chameleon, but once inside mac os x usb 2.0 works. This solution is kind of inconvenient since i can't select boot up options in chameleon if i don't have legacy usb support enabled, but if i specify a time out option in chameleon I can at least automatically boot in to os x. However if I want to reboot in windows I have to go to the bios and reenable legacy usb support each time.

    Thanks for the file Mohamed! Yesterday I actually ended up installing Chameloen RC5 r643 and and the latest fermi drivers, and after dropping in my GTX 470, the graphics worked fine. I installed the "IOUSBFamily_USB3_AnV" kext but I my computer still won't boot up if i have the "USB 2.0 controller" in the bios enabled. I attached the verbose output before the computer stalls.
  12. AMD and Retail Snow Leopard 10.6.5 --> 10.6.8 Final[GUIDE]

    Okay, I tried this and I'm still stuck at the screen. First I removed all usb devices, including the keyboard and mouse but left in the usb flash drive with the os x installation files. This didn't work. I then removed all usb devices including the flash drive. This also didn't do anything. I replugged everything back in at the screen moved the mouse and still nothing. Any other suggestions? Edit: So now I disabled the USB 2.0 controller, (everything is running at 1.0 speeds!), but now I think I got past the error. Thanks for pointing out that my problem is usb related. Anyway now I have a new problem where it now loads further but then the computer suddenly reboots. Ill try to look into this more. The last two messages I get before the computer automatically reboots is: "ACPI_SMC_PlatformPlugin::start - waitForService(resourceMatching(AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement) timed out" and "DSMOS has arrived" Could my new error now be due to my graphics card? I'm using a Geforce GTX 470. Edit 2: Yep it was my graphics card. I'm now using my built in motherboard ATI graphics and the OS is finally installing. Installing at USB 1.0 speeds is so slow...I really hope I can manage to get USB 2.0 working again.

    I'm attempting to install 10.6.3 on my Phenom II X6 1055t computer but I'm getting the error: "Verification of clock speed failed. Fallback correction was performed. Please upgrade bootloader." I used the bootcd 1.5 along with a retail mac os 10.6.3 disc mirrored onto a flash drive. I also tried setting busratio = 14 but I still get the same error except the FSB frequency is now reported near 200 MHz instead of 175 MHz. Any suggestions?
  14. G5 to ATX Front I/O Cables

    dontthroworanges, would it be possible to share info on who supplies the connectors? Did you have to make some kind of special order or request to obtain these connectors? I wouldn't mind trying to build a cable on my own if I could have access to the parts.
