    SL on a Dell Precision 490

    Still trying to get this thing up and running. I'm always late in the game, but better late than never. I can't get this thing to take an install. Dual 2.33 5345's, 16gb ram, ati radeon hd 6750. Can't even get to the point of install, if I use that boot disk you uploaded (had to do a crazy search to find it since megaupload went down), it like. freezes after switching over to loading up into the installer and stops sending video, then if I use i b oot, it stalls at waiting for root device. I'm stuck. I need this thing running osx! Let's get it.

    Ati HD4850 Hdmi working but not Audio?

    It is some ati and nvidia cards that advertise the ability to use a DVI to hdmi adapter to send audio through an hdmi cord to a tv/target that allows audio and video through hdmi. However, if you're not utilizing that adapter, it still is impossible to transmit sound through DVI using a DVI cord. that's not exactly what they are trying to accomplish. That adapter/splitter utilizes two separate cords to transmit audio and video separately. The op is trying to figure out why sound isn't going through the adapter using a single cord while using Osx, when it works that way in windows. it certainly has more than enough separate connections in the cables to support full hd and up to 7.1 surround

    Ati HD4850 Hdmi working but not Audio?

    Doing sine research, I found that some newer gpu cards do indeed have the ability to send sound through their DVI ports. I apologize for my uninformed statement. However, mac has yet to implement a gpu that allows this, and I haven't seen anyone getting this to work on an osx86 build yet. Might just have to play the waiting game.

    I like it. To me, it's a cool case. My opinion is mine. Not yours.
  8. Not quite, the issue is that USB is disabled by the update. You might try copying your old iousb.kext to your desktop before the update, then after the update BEFORE restarting replace the saved iousb.kext file back to where it was originally. Then restart.

    If you are using a hdmi to DVI adapter, you can't use audio. Audio doesn't transmit through DVI.
  10. Well, if you can't use your only input devices, it seems you're at a catch 22, since anything anyone will have you do involves your mouse or keyboard...
  11. Use a ps2 mouse and keyboard if you can.

    KmisterK's Recycler

    I think the 1366 CPU's are so expensive cause the slowest ones they make are still relatively high end i7's

    Unfortunately, I don't have the soldering skills required for that accurate of a job. Besides that, it was just the motherboard. No heat sink, no ram, no video card, no CPU. Having the motherboard nowadays isn't exactly a head start, considering the cheapest CPU I could find for it was an i7 920 on Ebay used for 189 with 2 days left on the bidding lol.

    Thanks i'm stoked. We got our first 1366 motherboard in today. It's got a bad capacitor, but that means there are more to come soon. I'm so excited.
