  1. [GUIDE] Retail Snow Leopard Install on Asus EeePC 1000HE

    I'm not sure if anyone is still reading this, but here goes: I was installed on my 1000he using this guide and was able to update to 10.6.8 from 10.6.1 by doing the following: - Installed 10.6.8 combo update from Apple - Installed Legacy Kernel 10.6.8 and SleepEnabler installer from Nawcom - (Before reboot) Run NetbookInstaller, UpdateExtra, KextUtility The system boots and everything appears to work except sleep and sound (VoodooHDA issues probably unrelated though). Any ideas how I can troubleshoot this sleep issue? I'm not very familiar with where this would log, nor why it might not be working because others report it works fine. Thanks for any help.
  2. The NVIDIA 9500GT Thread

    Thanks for the reply Buoo! As is always the case, no sooner do I post than the problem is solved. I reinstalled 10.5.6 using iPC and chose only the "New Macbook Pro" kext option under VIDEO (says it's for new nVidia 9xxx series cards. Started fine and once I added the NVCAP'ed custom EFI string, rebooted with full EVERYTHING. Didn't even need to edit NVDANV50 or NVResman. So the mystery is, could it have worked under 10.5.8 if I used the other proper DevID you pointed out? Or was it the 10.5.6 graphics framework? Some have reported success under 10.5.8 after downgrading to earlier graphics framework extracting it with Pacifist. Or was it the magical iPC 9xxx kexts? Or did I have some other unrelated kext from iDeneb 1.6 that was preventing boot at the display matching phase and was completely unrelated, misleading me to think it was this? I guess I won't know for now, cause it ain't broke, so I'm gonna stop trying to fix it. (Sound patch w/ AppleHDAPatcher v.120 also worked under 10.5.6, while it did not under iDeneb 10.5.8.) So everything is fully working! Hopefully this will help someone else save the trouble if this is similar to their system. Thanks again!
  3. The NVIDIA 9500GT Thread

    I have an EVGA GeForce 9500GT 1024MB Dual DVI (DVI/DVI/TVout) hooked to 40" Samsung via DVI/VGA adapter. I have read this thread inside and out and tried just about everything before posting and now I'm really hoping someone can give me some direction. My system is Dell Dimension 5150 P4 3.2GHz w/ iDeneb 1.6 lite 10.5.8 and Chameleon RC4 installed. I have not been able to boot normally, but can set the system up in safeboot (-x). I will post my outputs below. As per this thread, I have tried: - FreeDOS and NVFlash to get ROM dump for my card (NVCAP 04000000000003000c0000000000000700000000) - Custom EFI string using OSx86 Tools (worked to get card recognized in System Profiler and gives all resolutions, changing fine w/ no black or blue screens or artifact) (Click to see bigger picture-- kept thumbs small for thread) - Edited NVDAResman.kext and NVDANV50.kext to add DevID 0x0640 <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd"> <plist version="1.0"> <dict> <key>CFBundleDevelopmentRegion</key> <string>English</string> <key>CFBundleExecutable</key> <string>NVDAResman</string> <key>CFBundleGetInfoString</key> <string>NVDAResman (17.5.7f10)</string> <key>CFBundleIdentifier</key> <string>com.apple.NVDAResman</string> <key>CFBundleInfoDictionaryVersion</key> <string>6.0</string> <key>CFBundleName</key> <string>NVIDIA Resman Kernel Extension</string> <key>CFBundlePackageType</key> <string>KEXT</string> <key>CFBundleShortVersionString</key> <string>1.5.48</string> <key>CFBundleSignature</key> <string>????</string> <key>CFBundleVersion</key> <string>5.4.8</string> <key>IOKitPersonalities</key> <dict> <key>NVidiaRM</key> <dict> <key>CFBundleIdentifier</key> <string>com.apple.NVDAResman</string> <key>IOClass</key> <string>NVDA</string> <key>IOMatchCategory</key> <string>IOFramebuffer</string> <key>IONameMatch</key> <array> <string>MNCA,GeForce2MX</string> <string>NVDA,NVMac</string> </array> <key>IOProbeScore</key> <integer>60000</integer> <key>IOProviderClass</key> <string>IOPCIDevice</string> </dict> <key>NVidiaRMPCIMatch</key> <dict> <key>CFBundleIdentifier</key> <string>com.apple.NVDAResman</string> <key>IOClass</key> <string>NVDA</string> <key>IOMatchCategory</key> <string>IOFramebuffer</string> <key>IONameMatched</key> <string>NVDA,NVMac</string> <key>IOPCIPrimaryMatch</key> <string>0x064010de</string> <key>IOProbeScore</key> <integer>0</integer> <key>IOPropertyMatch</key> <dict> <key>name</key> <string>display</string> </dict> <key>IOProviderClass</key> <string>IOPCIDevice</string> </dict> <key>NVidiaRMTwinView</key> <dict> <key>CFBundleIdentifier</key> <string>com.apple.NVDAResman</string> <key>IOClass</key> <string>NVDA</string> <key>IOMatchCategory</key> <string>IOFramebuffer</string> <key>IONameMatch</key> <array> <string>MNCA,GeForce2MX</string> <string>NVDA,NVMac</string> </array> <key>IOProbeScore</key> <integer>60000</integer> <key>IOProviderClass</key> <string>IONDRVDevice</string> </dict> </dict> <key>OSBundleCompatibleVersion</key> <string>1.2.0</string> <key>OSBundleLibraries</key> <dict> <key>com.apple.iokit.IOGraphicsFamily</key> <string>1.5</string> <key>com.apple.iokit.IONDRVSupport</key> <string>1.5</string> <key>com.apple.iokit.IOPCIFamily</key> <string>2.4</string> <key>com.apple.kpi.bsd</key> <string>9.0.0</string> <key>com.apple.kpi.iokit</key> <string>9.0.0</string> <key>com.apple.kpi.libkern</key> <string>9.0.0</string> <key>com.apple.kpi.mach</key> <string>9.0.0</string> </dict> <key>OSBundleRequired</key> <string>Safe Boot</string> </dict> </plist> <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd"> <plist version="1.0"> <dict> <key>CFBundleDevelopmentRegion</key> <string>English</string> <key>CFBundleExecutable</key> <string>NVDANV50Hal</string> <key>CFBundleGetInfoString</key> <string>NVDANV50Hal (17.5.7f10)</string> <key>CFBundleIdentifier</key> <string>com.apple.nvidia.nv50hal</string> <key>CFBundleInfoDictionaryVersion</key> <string>6.0</string> <key>CFBundleName</key> <string>NVIDIA NV50 Resman Kernel Extension</string> <key>CFBundlePackageType</key> <string>KEXT</string> <key>CFBundleShortVersionString</key> <string>1.5.48</string> <key>CFBundleSignature</key> <string>????</string> <key>CFBundleVersion</key> <string>5.4.8</string> <key>IOKitPersonalities</key> <dict> <key>NVidiaRM</key> <dict> <key>CFBundleIdentifier</key> <string>com.apple.nvidia.nv50hal</string> <key>IOClass</key> <string>NVDANV50HAL</string> <key>IOMatchCategory</key> <string>IOService</string> <key>IOPCIPrimaryMatch</key> <string>0x064010de 0x00f010de&0xfff0ffff 0x019010de&0xfff0ffff 0x040010de&0xfff0ffff 0x042010de&0xfff0ffff 0x06e010de&0xfff0ffff 0x060010de&0xffe0ffff 0x062010de&0xffe0ffff 0x064010de&0xffe0ffff 0x086010de&0xffe0ffff </string> <key>IOProbeScore</key> <integer>0</integer> <key>IOProviderClass</key> <string>IOPCIDevice</string> </dict> </dict> <key>OSBundleCompatibleVersion</key> <string>1.2.0</string> <key>OSBundleLibraries</key> <dict> <key>com.apple.NVDAResman</key> <string>1.2.0</string> <key>com.apple.kpi.iokit</key> <string>9.0.0</string> <key>com.apple.kpi.libkern</key> <string>9.0.0</string> </dict> <key>OSBundleRequired</key> <string>Safe Boot</string> </dict> </plist> But I am still unable to boot successfully and get the following output: In safe boot, I get this instead: ...Which makes me think that it is the graphics (the extra lines about ALCinject are from trying to fix the Sigmatel sound card and not related, they were not there on previous installs without sound fix attempt and the rest were the same). I have tried TONS of previous installs as well, with every graphics enabler (NVInject 1024, NVEnabler, NVDarwin), with edited or unedited DevID strings in them and the nVidia 9000 V2 installer; none of them worked. So this time, I did it purely by the book, no injector, as advised, and I am posting my output to try to determine the problem and what the next best step is. Any help or direction would be greatly appreciated. Should I try injectors again? Do I need to downgrade my graphics framework for this card to work? Is it some unrelated kext that safeboot is fixing misleading me into thinking it's the video? Thanks in advance.
  4. FUBARed, what BIOS version and settings are you using? Specifically, do you have sound and firewire enabled? I have the same board, and have gotten installs partially working, but if I enable sound or Firewire, then the DVD crashes before it even loads, which is odd because the AC97 sound is common and doesn't bother my Dell. I'm thinking I must have something else off. Thanks for the post, I'm working with iAtkos now, but it helps to know the iDeneb was succesful with those settings. ~G.
  5. Sorry, I'm not sure what else to suggest. Can you specify which kernel the install DVD boots in by pressing F8? I think default is voodoo, maybe you need something else? Search around for which one AMD uses and see if that might help. I think you specify by just typing the kernel name eg "voodoo" or "voodoo -v" if you want verbose output.
  6. Try ApplePS2Controller.kext for PS/2. I installed it later and I think it is all you need.
  7. FX5200 Works ! 10.5.5 and 10.5.6

    Astro123, THANK YOU SOOO MUCH!! This finally solved my issues using AGP FX 5200 (the one with heatsink, no fan), after trying just about every other method out there (AGPGart, all versions of NVinject, Natit, NVKush complete, NVkush from installer). I recommend others try this first, even though it seems a little intimidating compared to more simple suggestions. I have to echo that the attached coregraphics did not work for me. I initially installed iAtkos v7, then updated to 10.5.8 using the iDeneb 10.5.8 updater. What did finally work was doing the tutorial again and using Pacifist to install coregraphics from iAtkos v5i, as mentioned in quote. (Thx for that!). HARDWARE: Optiplex GX270 w/ P4 2.0 GHz, 1.5GB PC3200 RAM, Network: Intel Pro 100VE, Audio: AC97, FX 5200 AGP (CI, QE, QGL), PS/2: ApplePS2Controller So I guess there must be something different either between the coregraphics, or else between the dependancies in the different installation methods (iatkos vs iPC)? Thanks again to all you good people. ~G.
  8. @DNA, I can't comment specifically because I'm new in general and any experience I do have is on P4 intel systems. However, I had similar problems on an Asus mobo and just figured them out late last night. I don't know if the following will help, but if you're stuck, try it. I'm speculating enormously, but I figure when a hang/kernel panic happens this early on, it likely has to do with something low-level like BIOS or mobo issues. I had success by turning off RAID and adjusting the graphics aperture settings in my BIOS to a lower value. Also, for some reason iDeneb 1.4 would run even when my settings were bad, it seems to be more versatile for some reason. I'm going to post the work in progress for my Asus mobo issues later today once I test it more thoroughly if you are interested. I hope that helps some. Hopefully someone with more experience will take an interest in this post. ~G.
  9. Help me on Intel 100 VE network card!

    Sorry if this goes without saying, but have you tried just leaving the kext alone without modifying the device ID? Mine worked as it was. Also, I would try iDeneb v1.4 10.5.6 first as this is the version that had the kext that worked for me (whereas the same listed kext under v1.3 didn't). Then, if stable, move to 10.5.8 using the updater pkg (which you can download directly, no need to burn). I can send more detailed instructions later if you need them (probably going to update the wiki with my tribulations soon). Sorry Tony, I've been too tired while doing this. I just reread your first post in more detail and realized, it's possible that the kext you have is fine, but you haven't installed it correctly. I thought you were choosing it at the time you installed everything. If you're adding it later, the easiest thing I've found is to use a program called OSx86Tools. You can use the GUI and choose 'install kexts'. Once its installed, I always run 'repair disk permissions' 'clear kext cache' and 'repair kext permissions' and then reboot just to be safe based on a few posts I've read. (Again, I'm new, so try to play it safe). I would do this first, I don't know if it's right, but I hope it helps.
  10. I just threw together a machine with this board and have been trying to get it and another going this weekend. Oddly enough, an Optiplex GX270 is stable at 10.5.8, yet I'm having the same problems as you on frankenstein machine with this far superior mobo. I've tried running iPC 10.5.6 (kernel panic before loads), same with iAtkos V7, iDeneb v6, iDeneb v3. The only that will run is iDeneb 1.4 which will complete install and then KP immediately on boot. Exhausted/frustrated at this point, but letting you know I'm in the same boat and have started to narrow it down to a few BIOS settings that seem to help a bit. If you're still trying to get this machine going, pls post your BIOS settings/version in detail and I'll do the same tomorrow after a night's sleep. The things that seem to help so far are setting AGP graphics aperture to different values. 32MB gets me farthest before KP, then it nearly loads but hangs at: localhost DumpPanic[42]: Error getting a reference to IODeviceTree:/options and gets a few lines further before hanging on: localhost mds[33]: ... (Error) Index...<not sure this part, my page cut off> IndexOpenBulk:No index localhost /usr/sbin/ocspd[66]: starting I'm also pretty sure I turned off the RAID controller setting. That's as far as I've gotten. I'd really appreciate any insight anyone has. Hardware: P4 2.8GHz; 1.5GB RAM; GeForce 5200 FX (AGP)
  11. Help me on Intel 100 VE network card!

    I'm not sure if I can help in any definite way, I'm still an OSx86 newb, but I had some trouble with this on a Dell and finally got it working, so I can recommend trying a couple of things that MIGHT work. For some reason I had no ethernet selecting this kext in iDeneb 10.5.5 install, but it worked perfectly in iDeneb 10.5.6 selecting 100/10 Pro VE and Voodoo kernel. If you're really stuck, you could switch to iDeneb. I've finally gotten that install to 10.5.8 on a Dimension 4500, but it was a bumpy road. The only thing I can really recommend trying wrt installing you particular kext, is download OSx86 Tools. It has a GUI feature to install kexts. Maybe the more automated way will take care of whatever you're missing? If that doesn't work, post back and I can check what is installed on my system. Another piece of info in case you haven't already seen it. When I was having problems with mine, some searches turned up people who had to edit their vendor ID into the .plist file within the kext. You can find these numbers also using OSx86 Tools (an invaluable program to have for many reasons), but I'd try the other things first. Post back if they don't work and I'll see if I can find my kext and a link to where to get it. (You could extract it from the iDeneb 10.5.6 install presumably).
  12. UPDATE: SUCCESS!!! It's a beautiful thing. Ethernet works this way and managed to get sound working with OSx86Tools and a AppleAC97 kext. Details now posted on 10.5.6 HCL QUESTIONS: Front row doesn't work, is it because of lack of video hardware? Can anyone recommend a good AGP graphics card for this system? 1080p streaming could be the ideal, but not sure if that's attainable on this system. How do upgrades work? I've looked around, but am struggling to understand how to use the 10.5.7 and 10.5.8 patches. Hopefully this will help others along. Thanks in advance to anyone who could help me further. ~G.
