  1. Thanks CrazyJAT for writing this guide! It worked for me, after I read carefully . Just a few comments you might want to consider for addition to your instructions: a) For the sake of clarity, you may want to include the last line that appears in the customize installation (Step 4) adding at the very end ... - Networking + Autodetected Wired LAN Support + GraphicsEnabler - SleepEnabler/ i.e., SleepEnabler not selected. I also had to add one extra command in Step 7 sudo mkdir /Extra/dsdt/ before copying the DSDT file from ~Desktop/dsdt.aml to /Extra/dsdt/GA-K8NF-9.aml. c) According to your quide, the legacy_kernel was under root, but the com.Apple.Boot.plist you provided points to /Extra/legacy_kernel instead. I first moved the legacy kernel to that directory, to avoid asking you to change the plist, but that _did not work_. So I moved back the legacy_kernel to the root directory, and just edited the com.Apple.Boot.plist file. Well, in fact I just used sed to achieve the same result: sudo sed s#<key>#/Extra## /Extra/com.Apple.Boot.plist At this point I wondered why not collect _all_ the commands you proposed in Step 6 and run those from your script "update.sh"? Also in the same script, do not forget to change ownership first, before you do the permissions and rebuild the kext cache: sudo chown -R root:wheel /Extra/Extensions -- Sleep functionality: I also got Snow Leopard installed using just the Nawcom BootCD+Retail DVD alone without further customization than the recommended during install by the automatic hardware detection baked in in Nawcom's BootCD. I did include your DSDT.aml stuff though. Without doing anything else of your recipe, I did get some sleep functionality: (wireless) network and hard disk activity paused but not the video. The system also "came back to life" after moving around the (USB) mouse. Wake-up did not work when pressing the keys though. So I would say: Sleep sort of "half"-worked, and it did so every time I told the "Mac" to sleep from the menu. By end of June 2011, Nawcom released a 10.6.8 version of the legacy_kernel and SleepEnabler.kext. Both can be downloaded from his blog entry at: http://blog.nawcom.com/?p=791 where he writes: Five months have gone since you posted your guide, and I am now curious about a follow-up: 1. Have you lately tried any new version of SleepEnabler on your 10.6.6 install? 2. What about updating from your install+10.6.6? Have you managed to update to 10.6.8? And if so, how? Thanks again for sharing!
  2. RTL Audio Drivers

    http://wiki.osx86project.org/wiki/index.php/3rdPartyDrivers Be aware that altough (system_profiler) "About This Mac" under "Hardware" -> "Audio (Built In)" will still report "No Built-in Audio.", your applications (e.g., iTunes, etc.) will find and use the audio after a reboot To install You could use the CLI (command line interface) from which you will copy the kext, be sure the permissions and ownership are correct and finally rebuild the cache before rebooting: sudo cp -R AppleAC97Audio.kext /System/Library/Extensions/ sudo chown -R 755 /System/Library/Extensions/AppleAC97Audio.kext sudo chown root:weel /System/Library/Extensions/AppleAC97Audio.kext sudo touch /System/Library/Extensions/ There is no need to delete (rm) the old/previous cache as you can read from support.apple.com (Search rebuilding cache there). It not many people is aware of that :-) Alternatively, go for a GUI (kexthelper OSx86tools and similar) to do the same though you should no fear... :-) Good luck! and don´t forget to report back!
