  1. Shutdown/Reboot on Dell Latitude E6400/6500

    With the Dell dock, I could get one of the DVI ports working fine in conjunction with the internal display using any of the regular solutions (GraphicsEnabler, nvInject, etc). However, I could not get both of the DVI ports to work simultaneously. Eventually, I gave in and I'm now the proud owner of a new 15" core i7 MBP
  2. Works pretty well here. Need -force64 flag if you have >=4GB RAM.
  3. Works great on my Pentium-D. Finally got it upgraded from 10.5 to 10.6. One trick though; If you have >= 4GB RAM, you need to add the kernel flag -force64 to make it boot. Nawcom, was this what your patch for "instant restarts" fixed? One more issue: whenever I shutdown or reboot, it appears to zap my CMOS. I didn't have this in 10.5. Any ideas? Can I disable the built-in shutdown/reboot and go back to OpenHaltRestart? Thanks again!
  4. Hi All, I have a Dell Latitude E6400 and everything works great except for Reboot, Shutdown, and Sleep. It appears that this is related to the graphics driver. Whenever I turn on GraphicsEnabler, add device_props, or use an enabler like ATY_Init, I get proper graphics + QE, but it breaks Reboot and Shutdown. The only graphics solution I haven't tried is patching my DSDT because I want to make sure I get my nvCaps right (I use docking stations and external monitors), so I probably need to patch one of the enablers to dump the nvCaps it uses. (The solutions that dump the ROM under DOS didn't work for me). So, I guess my questions are: 1) Does patching the DSDT have a better chance of fixing my shutdown/restart problems? 2) Are there any other solutions I haven't tried? Thanks.
  5. VoodooBattery 1.3.2 for 10.6.x (07JAN10)

    Give 1.3.2 a try (you might have just missed it). He did some fixes to handle multiple battery bays.
  6. VoodooPower 1.3

    Is this available to download or is the source somewhere? I'd like to test it. Couldn't find it on your website. Thanks!
  7. Hi all, It appears that by default my CPU is getting slightly underclocked. Is this because of NullCpuPowerManagement.kext? How do I fix this?

  9. No Hard Drives Recognized

    What are you using for enabling graphics? Are you using GraphicsEnabler=Yes from chameleon? Sometimes, choppy graphics can also be caused by CPU cores being out-of-sync. I believe the kext to try for that is VoodooTSC. I saw a kext for this somewhere on the board. Not sure the name though. If you open the system profiler and click on "Software", you'll see an entry for "64-bit Kernel and Extensions" Yes/No.
  10. [Install] Dell Latitude E6400 E6500

    {bump} Anyone have any luck yet with Shutdown/Restart yet w/ GraphicsEnabler? Just updated to 10.6.2 no problems (uninstall SleepEnabler first).
  11. No Hard Drives Recognized

    For chameleon, it's not -x32, it's arch=i386. You can put that in com.apple.boot.Boot.plist under KernelFlags to do it every time.
  12. Hi All, I have 10.6.1 installed on my Latitiude E6400. After patching to 10.6.1, it can't find my root device *most* of the time (every once in a while it appears to work). I've tried many combinations of -x, arch=i386, and arch=x86_64 and can't seem to figure out what the issue is. I plugged the drive into another machine and added AHCIPortInjector.kext and it booted once but not the next time. It almost seems like clearing the kext cache makes it boot once but not again. Any ideas on things to check? Extensions: AppleACPIPS2Nub ApplePS2Controller AHCIPortInjector NullCPUPowerManagement Intel82566MM VoodooBattery VoodooHDA PlatformUUID Chameleon 2.0 RC3, GraphicsEnabler=Yes, arch=i386 Update 11/11: The problem was with VoodooBattery. Superhai has released v1.3, fixing my issue.
  13. OSX vs Vista Boot times

    After I got my OSX up and running I decided to compare boot times between my new OSX install and my old Vista install. In short, OSX kicked the {censored} out of Vista.
  14. It depends on your hardware. If you had to install a 3rd party kernel for AMD or pre-Core processors then you'll have to be careful and update your kernel to 9.8.0 before rebooting.
