    Sweet i'm going to try it out with this Zotac GTX 460 768MB w/HDMI + 2 DVI ports, I want to do a fresh install.
  2. Dell Studio XPS 8100

    10.6.3 HOTISO retail works great. It will boot on our boxes with the [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url]-supported method. I tested confirming boot off my usb stick and USB mybook 640gb hdd on two seperate PCs. It boots to install screen no problems but there's no Hard Drives shown. I'm guessing the kext for the IDE controllers are no dice and not showing the drives. I'll get another 8gb stick tomorrow and test the install to that and update To get the Installation to boot from USB stick on this motherboard you have to type the following at the [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] menu EHCIacquire=No UHCIreset=No
  3. Yoz el_charlie, check out the whole post, it's indeed an HDMI issue, not DVI. Yes they are both digital, but interact differently, this issue confirms this.
  4. Well this is nothing new, this was implemented back in 10.6.2 for any users using multi-display to a HDMI as well. In 10.6.2 you could relieve this by just putting the 10.6.1 Nvidia kexts (NVDANV50Hal.kext and NVDAResman.kext) in your S/L/E folder. This is not the case with 10.6.3, DVI-HDMI hardware support will be gone, no QE/CI. Try putting -x -v in safemode, I was able to even change my resolution and refresh rate. There will be a fix for this eventually im sure, if not better get back to 10.6.2
  5. CPU temperature in iStat

    Hah ok just making sure about that, I guess some folk get really anal about their hacked macs and what they display. Anyways, I know about the title hah etc I was just making it fun Thanks for the info though, you've mad a few things clear for and perhaps a few others. I'm actually a MCP-XP/2k3, and newly MCSE. I use M$ products 24/7 of course. Never have to touch a mac, and probably never will in the work field (never used in network admin of course). Thanks dude! I gotta say though, OSX is definitely easier on the eyes, functions built into the OS are actually really cool and useful, so I give them thumbs for appearance, just not any functionality over M$ besides editing digital media (vids/music/etc) just my two cents, great fun!
  6. CPU temperature in iStat

    Sweet, so here's one for you. That's essentially speed stepping is it not? Using the mulitpliers on higher load? That's what I always thought. So if that's the case, why are people still manually doing it in the DSDT? What's the difference for these hacked mac OS? I guess i'm missing something. Can't you just use vooodoopowermini and call it a day? hah enlighten me if willing all wise "InsanelyMac Legend" So APPLE is really having that much time keeping their machines from running so durn hot? That's hilarious! They have to rely on 3rd party apps (which are very few compared to M$) but yeah. I guess that's why we live in a M$ world. Mac Leo server being actual useful? HAH! http://www.coolbook.se/CoolBook.html this looks very useful
  7. CPU temperature in iStat

    Sir oldnapalm: Thanks for the suggestion, I went ahead and picked up VoodooPowerMiniVersion 1.2.49 and installed. Awesome work, I see them moving. So voodoopowermini is working without VoodooMonitor on correct, or must I run the program to gain the multipliers? Sorry that's all I wanted to ask. everything should be fine and just like xp/7 if osx is reading my CPU with TJ max at 85C not 100C.
  8. CPU temperature in iStat

    Oh ok, I kinda figured that about the fakesmc that it was purely cosmetic on that aspect. Thank you very much sir. There is no actual way to edit and change the TJ MAX of the OS? This seems to be my only problem. Like stated I changed the voodoomonitor CPU-I TJMAX override to 85C, but When I start up p-change changer while voodoomonitor is open I guess its still on 100 TJ MAX because that still says 50C-55C. So im guessing the voodoomonitor override either doesn't work or is showing false values I have not setup speed stepped at all in the DSDT vanilla speed, but when im guessing the voodoopstatev4 did something because im using dual display video right now and a couple other programs and im watching the voodoomonitor ONLY while pstatechanger is one the states changes from 6.0 (1.59ghz) - 8.0 (2.13ghz) under load. I was just want to change the OS TJ MAX to the correct 85C so it lowers the temp. OSX86 CPU TJ MAX seems to be 100C or am I missing something? Sorry for my ignorance im very new!
  9. CPU temperature in iStat

    Hello all, very new to OSX at all so please bear with me This is just the thread I was looking for. I have installed osx86 from the 10.6.1-10.6.2 hazard disc, with not much problem really. Took a few shots to get the right kext, but everything appears to be working. I have the E6400 which has a TJ max of 85C unlike most of the 100C chips here. Voodoomonitor (hardware monitor 4.85 gives error on start, will test previous) reads my chip still at 100C. I can manually set the TJ max in my fakesmc.kext info.plist to 85, which seems to show the same temps I get in windows. (check pics please) Is changing the fakesmc value to 85 just cosmetic or is it really changing the OS settings to read it at 85. When I manually set voodoomonitor CPU-I max override to 85C and get the same readings as istat. I have voodoopstatev4 and voodooo monitor installed, and my correct states are shown for this proc (3 states 1.6-2.13ghz) nothing seems hot at all, my fans run the same as in windows. When the TJ max on the fakesmc was set to 100, it was reading 55C temps in istat, but after change to 85C for TJ max is appears to read 36-39 which is what I get in windows like stated. You can see the default TJ max for voodoo monitor is also 100. Is that cosemtic? Very sorry for the long post but im new to this. Core 2 duo E6400 MSI P6N SLI Platinum MS-7350 4GB DDR800 ASUS 9800GT 512MB ALC888 HD Thanks guys, Ive been reading the forums for about 5 days now since I decided to install this again. EDIT> I wanted to say that even if I still open up voodoomonitor, it still reads 100C for TJMAX, is that just the programs default or is that still saying that i'm still at 100C TJ MAX? @Jbolted - Same here man hah ive been trying to figure out how to change my CPU TJ max for the OS because mine is different at 85C not 100C like most it appears. OSX is a lot of fun, I like opensuse as well.
  10. Should i get a real mac?

    Yeah I never really understood it either. People that use their computers literally everyday (like literally everyone these days) should never skimp on performance or visual appeal in my opinion. Why get the low end stuff when its that important to you? A PC computer (even a super pricey 'real mac' is like $2000 im sure) is still nothing like a investment for a car or something. I say go for what you want man, you only live once, use it wisely! Enjoy!
  11. Hah I thought you can just use MACDRIVE 8.0 like I do. I boot osx 10.6.1 and win7 x32/ XPsp3 x32. I access my MAC files easily with macdrive kids...in XP and 7... peace! btw im a new osx86 user as of 4 days ago http://www.mediafour.com/products/macdrive/ and no im not affiliated.. I just use the sheet! BTW folks why cant new users post new threads.. how are we supposed to put up our specs on post installation? could someone point me in the direction perhaps? 9800GT rocking hard
