  1. So I recently installed 4gb more of ram (total of 8gb) into my hackintosh. It try to boot (cpus=1 busratio=20) and fails and shuts down. So I try to set some new kernel flags for maxmem. (cpus=1 busratio=20 maxmem=4096). This works. I try to set the com.apple.boot.plist in library/preferences.... with these new flags, and it still shuts down. How come my computer doesn't read the com.apple.boot.plist for its start up kernel flags and what can I do to fix it? Specs: Snow Leopard 10.6.2 AMD Phenom II X4 955BE Asus M4A97xtd Evo nividia 9800GT.

  5. Hey guys, I have VIA VT1708s audio driver and am using AppleHDA and AppleAzaliaAudio and i have perfect 2 channel output sound. The main problem I have is I cant control the volume from the computer, which is really annoying. For now I am fine with not having a mic, but is there a way to control sound on my computer other than through the System panel, as in a application? I tried VoodooHDA (after removing azaila and apple) but it wouldnt work. Is it even compatible on AMD Processors? If you know a kext that would work, let me know as well. My research has led me to voodoo, but seeing as it didnt work, I am looking for other options Thanks guys.
  6. Software Update? Will it KP my system?

    I wasnt talking about major updates, or security updates. Just updates such as Java, iMovie ......Those kind of updates.
  7. Hey guys, I just finished installing SL on my computer. Everthing works except that I cant adjust sound volume. Can I use software update, or will that mess things up? I do have an AMD processor.
  8. Snow Leopard Installed, but cant Dual Boot. Help!

    When I set the mac drive ot active using terminal, it still doesnt load....
  9. I isntalled Snow leopard, and I installed EasyBCD Boot loader. I reset the EasyBCD catalog, and write the new MBR for Vista. I then add OS X as a "Generic OS X PC" and save it. I reboot, and I click on OS X and it says, NSTOSX cant be found...blah blah blah. I even tried the "iMac/macbook option and got the boot.efi file, but that didnt work. If i boot up the os x install dvd, i can boot into the operating system there. Then remove the DVD and it still works. Thanks in advance
  10. I have installed using this DVD about 10 - 12 times. (All unsuccessful). I tried again last night, but adding Graphic_Enabler as yes and i get this error at the very end "Post install script for AMD Failed, Please restart and try again". I burned a brand new DVD at 4x and it did the same thing. Would choosing graphic enabler not allow it to install. Has anyone heard of this happening?
