    Guide to enable QE/CI on Dell Studio 1555 with Mob 4570

    I am going to try this today! Thanks for giving me hope. EDIT: Got my Graphics card working in just 5 minutes. As I already had Mac OSX installed, I merely copy pasted three kexts into Kext helper and installed them. Then pasted boot under /. Then the two .plist files into Extra. Rebooted and that's it. Worked like charm with the translucent QE/CI. Installed Xcode and saved myself from buying a Macbook Air worth $1600 [i use Tata Docomo 3g for internet, so WiFi/Ethernet is not essential ]

    Gigabyte GA-G31M-ES2L rev 2.4 and audio

    I have *the exact same* issue! I was using iATKOS 10.6.3 and RealTek ALC883 installer and it was working like a charm. The AppleAzaliaAudio.kext was working smooth. I decided to format my pc thinking that this would work the same way in 10.6.6. Installed the Hazard distro and found nVidia card working, AtherosL1Cethernet working. But try as I may, I could not get the audio to work. I tried installing 1. VoodooHDA (I get 4 digital HDMI output ports, but the sound output is mute. Tried editing the kext, to no avail) 2. AppleHDA + HDAEnabler - Got kernel panic. 3. RealTekALC883 installer - Not working. I don't understand this. If something was working in 10.6.3, what prevents it to work in 10.6.6? I need Xcode 4 for my work and I am forced to stick with this

    Gainward 8400GS 1GB

    To get it working, use NVEnabler64.kext from the DVD. Then add 0xyyyy10de (replace yyyy with your vendor id) under IOPCIMatch Key in Info.plist file 1inside the following files 1. NVDANV50Hal.kext 2. GeForce.kext 3. NVDAResman.kext Under 10.6.6, you need not add inside NVDAResman.kext

    8400GS vs. GT220

    8400GS works good enough for me and I get full QE/CI with it. I am using 512 MB card. All I needed to do was inject two strings (0x10c310de and 0x0be310de) in IOPCIMatch key of Info.plist file inside (for MacOSX 10.6.6) 1. NVDANV50Hal.kext and 2. GeForce.kext (for MacOSX 10.6.3) 1. NVDANV50Hal.kext 2. GeForce.kext and 3. NVDAResman.kext

    10.6.6 and ALC883?

    Same here.. I am not able to get the sound working.. I installed but couldn't get my audio running. I will try 0.2.2 and see
  12. Hi, You don't need to do Natit for quartz extreme. It's really simple to get Quartz working. Inject your device string (mine is 0x10c310de) inside GeForce.kext, NVDANV50Hal.kext under the key "IOPCIMatch". Then do a reboot, you will get the graphics working nicely. Much better than installing a separate kext for it. /System/Library/Extensions/GeForce.kext/Contents/Info.plist /System/Library/Extensions/NVDANV50Hal.kext/Contents/Info.plist /System/Library/Extensions/NVDAResman.kext/Contents/Info.plist
  13. The following is my PC configuration. 1. Processor: Intel C2D 2.93 GHz 2. Motherboard: Gigabyte GA G31M ES2L 3. Graphics card: I added nVidia GeForce 8400 GS. Motherboard came with Intel GMA 3100 and there is no driver yet for this integrated card (note, GMA 3100 is not GMA x3100). 4. Network : I don't have Wi-Fi card. Atheros L1C ethernet came with the motherboard. http://iats.googlecode.com/files/AtherosL1...010_release.zip 5. Sound: It was RealTek ALC audio, but after adding nVidia card, the driver is not working. The audio was working fine with OSX 10.6.3. I am yet to make this work. 6. PS/2 Keyboard and Mouse: I took the ApplePS2Controller.kext from the dvd and installed it. After that, it started working. If you are using USB keyboard and mouse, simply ignore this point. Assumption: You already have the OSX10.6.6i DVD with you. The following is the installation options: During installation: Make sure you allocate atleast 25 - 30 GB space for the installation. Choose a) X11 Bootloader -> Chameleon RC4 bootloader c) Drivers -> Sata_Pata -> LegacyAHCI_PIIXATA People prefer checking the Graphics Enabler option, but I don't. The reason is: it has never worked for me. Continue with the installation and registration etc. Again, I assume that you know the usual drill. (giving username, password, address etc). Now, we need to get Resolution and Ethernet working. My apologies for not getting the sound working. Will try again and update this thread. 1. To Get the Ethernet up and running -> You can use KextHelper of KextUtility which comes with osx 10.6.6i. The thing to be done is placing the kext inside /System/Library/Extensions. You can use terminal to do this as well. a. By kexthelper: i. Drag the kext inside the box. ii. Enter root password in the box and Click easy install. iii. Reboot b. By terminal: $ sudo su Enter password: _____ $ cp -rf /Users/hari/Desktop/AtherosL1CEthernet.kext /System/Library/Extensions/. $ exit Reboot. 2. To get the nVidia graphics card working, I prefer injecting two strings "0x10c310de 0x0be310de" inside the following kexts. By the way, 10de = Nvidia vendor id. 10c3 = my graphics card's device id. Find yours out first (using lspci in ubuntu or choosing "Get Hardware Profile" during installation) a. GeForce.kext b. NVDANV50Hal.kext Open terminal. $ sudo su Enter Password: ____ $ vim /System/Library/Extensions/GeForce.kext/Contents/Info.plist Find IOPCIMatch in the file, Add the following 0x10c310de 0x0be310de (with the space included) Press Escape key, then type :wq $ vim /System/Library/Extensions/NVDANV50Hal.kext/Contents/Info.plist Find IOPCIMatch in the file, Add the following 0x10c310de&0x0fffff 0x0be310de&0x0fffff Press Escape key, then type :wq Reboot. It might take couple of times for the system to recognize the resolution. you can set it from System Preferences -> Displays. When I get the sound working, I'll update the thread here. Thanks for reading the post. Ciao
  14. I have AtherOS ethernet card. I installed it first before installing nVidia 8400gs. Try it like that. It might work.

    Nvdia 8400gs 512mb not detected

    I use the same gfx card with the same device/vendor id. So here you go. Download the attachments. 1. Remove GeForce.kext, NVDANV50Hal.kext, NVDAResman.kext from your /System/Library/Extensions. 2. Use KextHelper app (in the attachment) and install the kexts. NVEnabler64 GeForce NVDANV50Hal NVDAResman Reboot. You should get a screen working by now with display connector as 1619w. I think I have posted my experience about this in New users lounge. http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php...amp;pid=1626202 GeForce.kext.zip NVDANV50Hal.kext.zip NVDAResman.kext.zip NVEnabler64.kext.zip Kext_Helper_b7.zip
