  1. Looks like a video card panic. Which one are you using? For this guide I am using an ati 4870. When does the Kp occur? Have you gotten to the install screen?
  2. Just finishing installing snow leopard on the rampage ii extreme. A couple of things before installing. 1. Set bios to ACHI 2. Make sure you connect the HD which you're installing SL on to the 1st sata port 3. You need to have a bootable snow leopard USB. Check out this thread for instructions on how to make one: (http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=208724) 4. Download this BootCD - http://www.mediafire.com/?a0z1mkbreqxjopf 5. Download this AppleHDA.kext - http://www.mediafire.com/?cmuv6kci09h5egq The BootCD contains the Extra folder, Chameleon2RC5 bootloader, bootcd, kext helper and kext utility Wanted to say thanks to speedy61 and kups for the files and of course to the rest of people who helped make installing SL so easy these days. 1. Download the BootCD file and burn the .iso to a cd using the slowest speed. 2. Insert the BootCD and plug in the USB. Restart and at bios press F8 to boot up from the CD. Now chose the USB and start booting. 3. Once at the SL installation go to disk utitlies and partition the HD. Remember to click customize and deselect all the printers,etc. 4. When it's finished installing restart and again press F8 to start up with the bootcd. This time chose the HD you just installed to. 5. You should now see the video. Fill out all the information and you're at the desktop! 6. Network should be working so just go to Software Update and install all the updates up to 10.6.6. 7. Once the updates are installed it'll reboot and once again press f8 and boot up from the cd. Chose the HD and when it loads make sure you're running 10.6.6. 8. Open up the BootCD. Install the Chameleon bootloader. restart and boot up using the cd. 9. Copy the Extra folder from the bootcd to the root of your harddrive (Nvidia owners can try the Extra Nvidea folder - just make sure to rename it to extra). Open up kext utility and run it. This will repair permissions and create the mkext package. Once it's finished open up kext helper and drag the AppleHDA.kext file in there. Enter your password and install. Restart once complete. This time boot up directly from the HD. Hopefully you should now have a working 10.6.6 install on the rampage ii extreme complete with the app store.
  3. Wonderful

    hey. nice work here. tested out the bootcd and everything was fine. does sleep and shutdown work for you? still haven't figured that out. to others who don't want to use the bootcd to always boot. update to 10.6.4 restart with boot cd install rc4/5 put the 'extra folder' in the root of the hd run kext utility reboot w/out bootcd. as for wifi buy a dell 1490 or 1510. works out of the box. dell 1490
  4. http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=178411 try that thread. people have reported 820 working with nvidia graphics. good luck just follow the directions. very easy.
  5. i'd just wait it out and see what happens. you've come this far might as well. once it finishes or fails why not try to install on a different hd? just to double check. if it also happens on that... if it fails how is your bios set up? is the raptor the only hd connected? did you choose ahci in bios? try and install with 4gb. move the sata cable to a different plug. how did you partition the drive? double check everything, move the sata to a different one, select ahci, boot with 4gb, and see how it goes. here is a thread of the rampage 2 gene - http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php...&hl=rampage maybe they can be of more help.
  6. p6x58d [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] + [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] + other extra folder core i7 920 @ 3.8 6gb @ 1600 5850 640gb wd black hd 10253 - 32bit was expecting better but the system flies anyways! i tried with an SSD and OMG! Makes it that much better.
  7. Couple of questions for you D430 owners. Is sleep working? Is touchpad scrolling working? I did get scrolling to work somewhat but it often gave kernal panics and slowed the pointer quite a bit. Those are the two issues I had with it. Everything else was working fine but it's hard to manage with those two issues.
  8. Look here: http://wiki.osx86project.org/wiki/index.ph...10.6.2#NVIDIA_2 gts250 should be fairly easy http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=183156 9400gt should also work if you need more power then you'll need to research a little more. my 5850 works perfect. 5770 should work as well.
  9. Is the internal mic working for anyone? I connected my logitech mic (this one) to the mic input in the back and don't get anything. Am I missing something or does it not work? So it looks like pretty much everything is working except for sleep and mic. That is very impressive and the system runs flawlessly. I installed SL on an SSD but kept on getting random freezes and just didn't like the feel of it. Went back to a regular WD Black 640gb and it's perfect. Thanks kup for the super easy directions and file package. Very nicely done.
  10. A few things. 1. disconnect all harddrives except for the one that's being used for snow leopard 2. disconnect all cd/dvd drives except for the one that's being used 3. set hd to AHCI 4. most important - boot with only 4gb. will not install with 6gb. put it back after completing the last step from kups post (the hd audio fix with 10.6.4) try these and let me know. the [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] 5xxx-3 should work w/out a problem.
  11. Here are the simple instructions for ATI cards 5850, 5770, 5750. 1. Go here > http://www.tonymacx86.com/viewtopic.php?f=...651&start=0 2. Download [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] ATI 5xxx-3 for supported cpus or [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] ATI 5xxx-2 for unsupported cpus 3. Burn it to a CD at the slowest settings. 4. Go into bios and set the harddrive as ACHI 5. Insert and boot from the [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] CD. Once you get to the bootloader take the [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] cd out and insert the snow leopard dvd or choose the usb which has snow leopard restored on. 6. Follow the directions from this thread. Read the 1st post by Kup. 7. After it finishes installing it will restart. Insert the [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] cd and boot from that. Once @ the boatloader choose the name of the new install you just did. 8. Enter account information/etc. 9. Once you're at the desktop follow the OP's (original posters) directions regarding the p6x58d files. 10. Restart just to be safe. Boot with the [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] cd. Once at the desktop you'll have internet working. 11. Download the 10.6.4 combo update - http://support.apple.com/downloads/DL1048/...Combo10.6.4.dmg and the snow leopard graphics update -> http://support.apple.com/downloads/DL1083/...csUpdate1.0.dmg Don't install yet. 12. Download [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] -> http://tonymacx86.blogspot.com/search/label/[url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] 13. Install the 10.6.4 update 1st. Don't restart. Now install the graphics update. Don't restart but don't close the window where it says to restart. 14. Now move [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] to the desktop and open it. Advanced Options > Graphics > Graphics Enables > UAKARI Enabler. For 5770 chose Vervet. Advanced Options > Graphics > ATI > 5xxx Series Kexts com.boot.plist - 32bit + GraphicsEnabler = no Choose those 3 and install. Restart using one of the other windows (10.6.4 or graphics update). That's it. Now you can boot w/out any cd. Once you get to the desktop follow Kups directions regarding sound in 10.6.4. I didn't do any of the hardwork. To many people to thank and appreciate. Just took all the instructions and simplified it for the p6x58d for ati users. It took me ages to get 5850 not because it was hard but because the information was all over the place. Hope this helps.
  12. Intel GMA950 - Snow Leoard

    Try this post GMA950 The OP has a Sony with a GMA950. It worked on my GMA950 (dell d430). Good luck. I'm assuming you already have SL installed. What's in the /extra folder? Any graphic kexts?
  13. GMA950 Mobile Snow Leopard?

    Nice. Good job da_jokker. This worked with my 27a2 D430 laptop. Followed exactly this post except I didn't do steps 4,5,7. Replace the oem graphics kext in S/L/E (system/library/extensions) and also the patched IOATAfamily.kext (check jokkerz post history and he uploaded them there). If you had any graphics kexts in the /extra folder delete them as well and then as mentioned above replace the ioatafamily.kext there as well and then run pfix (it'll rebuild mkext for both s/l/e and /extra and repair permissions. Thanks to the guys in this thread. System Info says GMA950 and everything works.
  14. Should i get a real mac?

    If you can part with an addtional $600 go with the i5/i7 27". The difference in screen size is well worth the additional cost and then off course you get a MUCH faster system that'll last you MUCH longer. Being you can't upgrade many of the components that i5/i7 imac will last you a good 4/5 years. Purchased one for my uncle. Though I tried talking him out of it saying he could get a i7 pc for $1000 I'm glad he didn't listen. That screen ITSELF is worth like $1200. It is BEAUTIFUL. I'd save up the extra money.* I would love to purchase one just for the screen. Dual boot OSX and Win 7. It's just that I don't have $1900 to spend * = if you havn't already purchased it. I got abtelectronics to pricematch apple epp price. No tax. Free shipping. Can't beat it. Saved me $200 including taxes.
  15. The first Mac you ever used.

    The 27" Imac i5. First one I ever used. Purchased it for my uncle and have to say probably the best screen I've ever used.
