    Problema con la cámara en Yosemite

    I have the same problem with Asus n53sm Yosemite with Chameleion-2.3svn-r2437. Looks to be a bluetooth problem (see http://www.tonymacx86.com/hp-probook-yosemite/144910-hp-webcam-2.html ) as I see the same errors in /var/log/system.log (sorry - I only know English)

    Bluetooth on a Dell xps 435mt snow leopard

    Working if I install a logitech bluetooth dongle for my MX 5500 keyboard / mouse. The Bluetooth selection in System Profiler even shows the same vendor id / product id as Windows 7. Looks to be a Broadcom 2045 device that doesn't require any plist edits.
  3. Mine works under 10.6.6 (and probably 10.6.5) on a Dell xps 435mt with a Logitech mx 5500 keyboard and mouse. Without the Logitech dongle installed, there was nothing under the "BlueTooth" in System Profiler but you see 3 Logitech BT Mini-Receiver entries in the USB section. To make the bluetooth keyboard usable from BIOS (I have to use the F12 key to boot os x), I installed the logitech bluetooth dongle and connected the keyboard and mouse under Windows 7 using the logitech LLC. Now with the Logitech dongle installed, I see both the logictech dongle and the internal bluetooth. And (surprise surpries), the internal bluetooth adapter shows up in the Bluetooth section in the System Profile (with the correct device / vendor ids) and the Bluetooth section of System Preferences works.

    DSDT Auto-Patcher

    I've updated the system 10.6.6 and I'm now getting the Turbo Ratios 1112 in the kernel.log I'm not understanding the com.apple.driver.AppleLPC (1.4.12) <9 5 4 3> If I enable the power button sleep option in system preferences, the system responds and appears to go into deep sleep - hard drive spin down - display shuts off - and the power light goes into blink mode. Returning from sleep via the power buttons seems to work but the display doesn't restart. BTW - I really like those Menu Meters in your first post . I've attached my current send_me.zip with your DSDT.aml file in use. send_me.zip

    DSDT Auto-Patcher

    I started with a guide that installed 10.5.0 and those were the things needed to get going at that time. So, I updated the bootloader with the one in post #1 and removed NullCPUPowerManagement and OpenHaltRestart. No change in the system operation (again - a good thing). I've attached the results for run_me for this configuration. Any other changes needed to get me to a more current setup? Thanks again for the help! send_me.zip

    DSDT Auto-Patcher

    Thanks. Do you see anything in my DSDT file that would stop my built-in bluetooth device from being seen? Under windows 7, it shows up as USB\VID_413C&PID_8130 which should be vendor id and product ids in hex. But neither System Profiler or IORegistryExplorer see the device.

    DSDT Auto-Patcher

    Many thanks! This is a Dell xps model 435MT; the motherboard shows up as Dell 0R849j when running SiSoftware Sandra. I can't see any difference between this DSDT.aml and my previous one. Which is a good thing since I tried to use your dsdt patcher with the "generic" selection and the usb entries for the mouse where lost. Note that the "power button" doesn't start a shutdown with either DSDT.aml ; probably something wrong with my kexts. I've attached my previous DSDT.aml DSDT.aml.zip

    DSDT Auto-Patcher

    If you want to send me information about your system so I can make an auto-patcher for it, please download and run the attached "run_me" script and attach the "send_me.zip" file it creates on your desktop. The included data is your DSDT, a list of loaded kexts, an ioreg dump and the kernel log. If you want to see the commands it runs, just open the script with "Automator". Could you make a custom DSDT for a Dell xps 435mt? I have almost everything working except for the internal Bluetooth device. The run_me was run without any DSDT.aml file loaded. Without my current DSDT.aml file loaded, my logitech bluetooth mouse and keyboard no longer show up in System Profiler. The keyboard continues to work without the System Profiler entry but I have to use a different mouse. Thanks for providing this help. send_me.zip
  9. Since you're on a desktop and your should have a open slot for a graphics card, (from the hp specs for your system)Integrated graphics using Intel GMA 3100*Integrated video is not available if a graphics card is installed Integrated graphics using Intel GMA 3100 Also supports PCI Express x16 graphics cards* I would go with a any of the newer nvidia card. I using a GeForce 9600 GT 512MB card on 10.6.5 with the lastest nvidia drivers and CUDA drivers without any problems with all the heavy lifting being done by the Chameleon boot loader. Just turn on the Graphics Enabler in you com.apple.Boot.plist and let the lizard do a the dirty work. My /Extra/com.apple.Boot.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>GenerateCStates</key> <string>Yes</string> <key>GeneratePStates</key> <string>Yes</string> <key>Graphics Mode</key> <string>1920x1080x32</string> <key>GraphicsEnabler</key> <string>Yes</string> <key>Instant Menu</key> <string>Yes</string> <key>Kernel</key> <string>mach_kernel</string> <key>Kernel Flags</key> <string></string> <key>SMBIOSdefaults</key> <string>No</string> <key>Theme</key> <string>Default</string> </dict> </plist>

    HELP! cant dual boot, Windows 7 wont boot

    I don't know about your laptop but the Dell m1530 will boot the hard disk even if you have selected the CD drive as the first boot device. Without hitting F12 to force a boot device selection, the m1530 will flash a very short "Press any key to boot from CD" message. If you don't respond in a very short time, it would boot the hard disk.

    boots to desktop, cannot click mouse or type

    You might want to try the DSDT.aml file from the XPSm1530Extra.zip located in thread http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=223470

    A Weird Question

    A friend of mine said that this happened because snow leopard isn't fit for PCs and can damage PC Hardware, can anyone here confirm this information? Setting up a Hackintosh can be like building a race car from generic parts. Your system can be damaged by snow leopard if you don't get the setup correct. Just like putting a 600hp engine in your car with a stock trannie can damage your car. For example, running a laptop without proper power management could easily damage the system due to increased heat. Done properly, Hackintoshs can be very robust systems. I've been running my Dell xps 435mt for about a year without any hardware problems.

    Introduce yourself.

    Hello - I'm an American living in Okinawa Japan and have setup 3 Hackintoshs (Dell xps 435mt, Dell mini 10v, and Dell m1530) with the much help from the good folks on this site. Looking forward to my 10th post so I can go play with the big boys .
  14. Anyone got the Teac CAB-200 bluetooth interface working on snow leopard? I can access the card reader without any problem but os x doesn't see any bluetooth devices.
  15. This worked for me: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=31198
