  1. This is what constitutes front page news here now? I could barely hear the videos over the sound of a barrel being scraped. Am I the only one who thinks IM has served its purpose and should be put to rest??
  2. Half Life for Mac - 1984 ad spoof

    Didn't know it was out, had Steam installed for free Portal, and my old account lets me have HL2 free!! Thanks for the info.
  3. This worked great on my Bad Axe 2, been waiting in vain for the BuildSmart solution so took the plunge and now have 10.6.2. I used timewise's Extra directory from post 44 http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php...81410&st=40 as I didn't have an SL to make extensions.mkext but other than that followed your guide verbatim. Thanks for your help! btw anyone following this guide, remember to remove SleepEnabler.kext before updating to 10.6.2, you can grab a 10.6.2 specific version from Netkas.
  4. Snow Leopard on Bad Axe 2

    @ibuyufo. Looks like you're not in the same directory as the boot files. In Terminal type cd then space then drag the "Snow Leopard on D975XBX2" folder and press enter. Then cd Bootloader/Chameleon-2.0-RC1-r431-bin/i386/ Then when you do the sudo fdisk etc. the files will copy. For the final 'boot' file you'll need to be in the Bootloader/PC_EFI V10.1 folder. hth.
  5. Log File

    Applications > Utilities > Console You'll find the startup log under system.log hth.
  6. I use an Asus EN9600GT on my Snow Leopard install. It needs Efi strings adding, and the performance is pretty shoddy. COD4 is unplayable, it ran great on my old ATI 2600XT. EDIT: Performance great - forgot to plug the PCI-e power lead in!!

    Have any of you managed to boot from Chameleon on the 200mb hidden EFI partition? I can't manage to get it to load the kexts, it stalls at waiting for DSMOS. Got it working well from a USB Chameleon, but would like to tidy things up a bit.
  8. Welcome to the forum. You don't need an extra part, you just need to make sure the parts you use are compatible with os x. The PC guy might be thinking you need http://www.efi-x.com/ . You don't, it's a rip off. Once you get the PC, start with installing Leopard. Alot of people who have been around OSX86 for a while are having problems with Snow Leopard, you'll learn some important things by starting with 10.5 Hope this helps, good luck!

    Are you using an image from BrokenStones? I only had success with the 'full' version (6.13gb), not the one with stripped Boot Camp drivers (5.22gb). md5 is a98ed4f5b730f384cca66ae026974009

    I had the orange icon problem for the first few attempts, but after adding the 3 extra kexts from timewise's post: ATAPortInjector.kext AHCIPortInjector.kext IOAHCIBlockStorageInjector.kext they appear as internal drives again. Don't know enough to say how/ why, but they should work for you.
  11. Snow Leopard on Bad Axe 2

    I'd like to 2nd the thanks for Tader & timewise. After a couple of days frustration, I had a go with timewise's latest post and this time it worked! I did several things differently from previous attempts, I'll try to list them in case they help. 1. Used Leopard to partition/ erase target drive. 2. Used timewise's dsdt.aml 3. Set -x32 boot flag in boot.plist 4. (Important?) I didn't unplug my Leopard sata when booting up from USB. 5. After the initial USB boot up using -s -f -x32 and creating next mkext, the only flag I used on reboot was -v. 6. SL installed!! I launched Terminal before the 30 second reboot. rm -rf /System/Library/Extensions/IOATAFamily.kext/Contents/PlugIns/AppleIntelPIIXATA.kext/ 7. Reboot. Used -s -f -x32 again, created mkext again, rebooted and let the USB boot up the SL sata partition 8. Gfx working, sound working, ethernet working. For the first time in my hackintosh history, I had video & sound for the intro!!! HTH. If I think of anything else I did I'll report in the morning, need some sleep now! BTW thank for the tips Bofors, great to see you back here, and I'll keep an eye out for BuildSmart's latest masterpiece.
  12. Snow Leopard on Bad Axe 2

    I tried your 3 extra kexts, no luck unfortunately. They did make the hard drive show up as internal though, so I'll use when (if) i get SL running... Would you be able to check your BIOS rev on the motherboard? I'l clutching at straws now :-(
  13. Spanish.pkg for Snow Leopard (10A432)

  14. ATI on Snow Leopard

    I couldn't get to SL installer with my 2600XT. I put in a 9600GT and it works. I still get a KP when installing but that's another matter.....
  15. Snow Leopard on Bad Axe 2

    hmmm, must be some BIOS setting we're missing. I've unplugged all unneeded drives, and just have 1 SATA hd target drive, 1 SATA burner and the usb pen drive. Did some searching on IOStorageFamily and couldn't find anything relevant, will post back here if I get any further....
