    InsanelyMac Protégé
  1. I just installed 10.6.5 then ran [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url]. Appears to be booting fine then after the grey apple logo screen it just hangs at a blue screen. Any ideas of what I could do to fix this? Is there a way I can boot off my "Install" thumbdrive and run [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] again?
  2. Can't help you there, try doing a forum search for your card. QE is enabled if interface movements like exposé and minimizing windows are fluid. You would notice if it wasn't because everything would look dull and be really choppy. There's also a program called Quartz Extreme check I believe, you can probably find it on google. Good to see you got your sound working.
  3. Ok, so despite a few setbacks I have 10.6.0 running very comfortably on my hackintosh. EXCEPT a couple minor annoyances. 1) My system time seems to be going too fast. I searched the forum for this issue, but all the threads seem to be devoted to the time being wrong when switching OS's, which is not my problem. My problem is, about every hour I have to open date and time preferences in order for my time to be set right. If left alone it simply goes too fast and will get off by about an hour! 2) Playing any videos in VLC cause a skipping audio and video issue, as if the video is playing on fast forward or something. (this also happens with .mov's in Quicktime. (but not when playing .avi in Quicktime) Anyone else have these problems? Any help would be greatly appreciated! EDIT: my bad I didn't know I needed to install the i5 specific boot file. :/ I feel so stupid haha.
  4. For me both version 0.2.1 and 0.2.2 worked, but 0.2.2 doesn't list all the 5.1 inputs. (audio shows up as 'Unknown' So try both and figure out which one you like better. I can PM you 0.2.2 if you need it. And yes that is the correct way to install. Perhaps this will help too. I find that when I boot into my Windows 7 drive and then boot into Snow Leopard, the audio will not work unless I shut the computer down and unplug the power supply in between Win 7 and Snow Leopard boots. Don't know why this is, or if its only a Windows 7 problem but it wouldn't hurt to try.
  5. No luck. I'm going to try upgrading to Logic 9, maybe that will fix the problem?
  6. Actually I just recently had this problem, and it seems the only way to fix it is by turning the switch on my power supply to off and unplugging the power chord between booting from OS X and 7 (as mentioned earlier in this thread, silly me). Anyway If I don't do this the audio in each system will not work. Weird. Anyone figured out a fix for this?
  7. I tried this method but 7 would not allow me to set the os x partition as active. It said it could only be applied to MBR format... Anything I can do to remedy this?
  8. Try reinstalling VoodooHDA. Seems like a simple fix but it worked for me. What bootloader do you use?
  9. I too am having this problem. However I am currently updating my version of Logic to the current version of 8 (8.0.2 I believe). Also, if quad core i7 and just quad cores in general seem to be causing this issue, would possibly disabling 2 of the cores in BIOS solve it? I'm running an i5 Lynnfield. I'll update whether either of these fix the issue.
  10. What exactly do you mean NT6 startup repair? Would it be a good idea to unplug the SL hard drive before booting windows install DVD?
  11. I'll add to this thread my dilemma, because Windows 7 is definitely not playing well with others. I just recently installed Windows 7 64 bit on a new build, got it up and running perfectly. When I decided to dual boot SL on the same drive however, the mere act of booting into the OS X installer caused my Win 7 install to say "Missing operating system" upon start up. The drive shows in BIOS but windows does not seem to recognize it as a valid Install. I tried running multiple system recovery attempts on the Win 7 DVD to no avail. /fixmbr and /ScanOS all revealed that there was supposedly no valid Installs. After no luck with this I decided to get Snow Leopard up and running on a SEPERATE HD, from which I am currently fully functional. Now Windows 7 on start up says "bootmgr.exe missing" My question is; is there any way that I would be able to repair my Windows 7 drive so it will start up again? That is without having to wipe the drive. Would Chameleon support dual booting over multiple drives? I'm using the Chameleon RC3 bootloader on the Snow Leopard drive. My specs are Asus Maximus III Gene motherboard Intel i5 2.8ghz GTS 250 1GB superclocked WD Caviar Black 1TB, WD Caviar Blue 500GB Any help would be greatly appreciated.
  12. UPDATE: In case anyone was wondering, I solved the problem. It was due to me not setting the correct bootloader as mentioned earlier. Chameleon RC3 was the one that ended up working for me.
  13. Hey guys. I just built a gaming rig with the Asus Maximus III Gene board and am attempting to install Snow Leopard. Using tonymac's guide, I have the USB drive set up, and have configured the BIOS as stated, but when attempting to boot off the USB drive get stuck at a black screen with a blinking cursor. What am I doing wrong? Is it the PC EFI that is messing up or did I not change the BIOS correctly. Any ideas?
