  1. thank you! 100% working system now!. Doug
  2. Hello, Theconnactic can you please post the link to the files that you are talking about? "replacing sata and nvrad dilybs" Are they from an older 10.8.4 release? Thank you.
  3. Hey guys, I just found this thread. I also have a ga-z87x-ud3h mb with a nvidia gtx570 gfx card. I have been patiently waiting for osx 10.8.5 to be released before I try and migrate my older ga-x58a-ud3h motherboard to this new one. My question is I did a quick boot of my new system using the DP1 of mavericks for testing and got stuck at a black screen, I following the instruction from the first post in this thread on building a usb mavericks boot stick. Now I have "not" updated the bios yet to the latest F6 or the new F7 version from gigabyte. Is there an issue with older bios files and chameleon/mavericks ?? Also are most of you using a ddst file or are you needing this if you are using a external video card and not the built-in video? Thanks for any info. Doug
  4. Kakewalk 4: Makes installing Lion a breeze

    mrjanek, Im having an issue where I cannot create the kakewalk 4 usb boot. Im getting the following error "Could not rename drive. Make sure you no other volumes named 'Mac OSX Base System' are mounted" The install basically fails at this point. I have tried repeating it again by re-formatting my usb stick first and changing the name to something simple such as lion or kakewalk. Another user named MadNachos in your discussion forum on your website is also reporting the same issue. Any advise? I can upload the log when I return home this evening. Thanks. Doug (p.s my system has been rock solid based on your earlier kakewalk install). Im curious how to you handle upgrades from a system running an older kakewalk install with an older chameleon ? Do you replace the boot loaded and keep the users dst files? or replace both?
  5. Tesla, take a look at the [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] tool from tonymac. Lots of info here in this own thread on the [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] and how it fixes the sound situation on the x58a-ud3r. Also when installing each os I recommend installing each to it's own drive. This works insanely easy. For me I install win 7 first, unplugged the drive installed osx plus multibest, plugged back the second drive with win 7 and during boot if I hit the space bar it stops the auto osx bootup and lets me select osx or win7. I have the same mb as you and once installing the [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] tool selecting our sound chipset and other goodies the sound was fine as was the ability to select other os's during boot graphically. http://tonymacx86.blogspot.com/2010/02/mul...stallation.html
  6. Mrjanek, I have a working GA-X58A-UD3R system but I had based on your kakewalk 2.0 software using the closest match at that time which was a GA-X58A-UD7. Do you see any benefit on reinstalling the kakewalk install for my system using the correct motherboard model in the latest kakewalk 2.2 ? I assume you have an update DSDT.aml file with fixes specific to the GA-X58A-UD3R board? Thanks. Doug
  7. Fbalion, Take a look here .. http://www.tonymacx86.com/viewforum.php?f=3 Tonymac has a boot cd and instructions that should work with most intel based machines. Unfortunately all my experience is based on Gigabyte motherboards and the kakewalk install. Cheers. Doug
  8. Tom, I have the same setup as you including the video card. I'm on a quest to get a solid DSDT for my X58A-UD3R system, although I have an Intel Core i7 - 930. Is the cpu type a factor when creating a DSDT? Paulo, Thanks again for your response. I'm curious, what cpu type and speed are you using to hit that geekbench number? I imagine your over clocking to at least 4ghz? I have an intel i7 - 930 overclocked to 3.45 and my geekbench score is a bit less than your number.
  9. Paul, Hi. What extra extension files are you using with your DSDT file? I have the same motherboard as you but I have an ATI Radeon 4870 video card and not an nvidia one so your dsdt will not work in my system but I may copy and paste some of your other areas of your DSDT file into mine. Im trying to get more performance out of my system. Thanks for any info. Doug D
  10. Mrjanek, I have a working X58A-UD3R system I created weeks ago with kakewalk. Initially I had to use a different mb profile in kakewalk since the X58A-UD3R was not supported at that time but after some hacking everything is fine now like audio, video, usb ,etc. Are there any benefits on installing the new 2.2 version bootloader you just released? Oh and would it be beneficial to use any new DST files you now have for my X58A-UD3R motherboard, and replace the older ones? I guess my questions can be summed up as "is there any way to upgrade to the newest kakewalk without wiping my system and starting again but getting only the updates out of it"? Thanks again for all your hard work. Doug D
  11. MrJanek, I havent downloaded this new build yet but let me first say "thank you !" again for this excellent software and another thanks for supporting the X58A-UD3R motherboard that my system is using. Outstanding work ! Cheers.
  12. Thanks for the outstanding work mrjanek, Any chance on native support for the Gigabyte X58'A'-UD3R motherboard in a future revision? It seems to works fine with the X58A-UD7 selection but I always like to have the exact model if possible. You have the X58(non A) in your install. Anyway thanks for all your excellent work !!
  13. Hey man, I would take a look at the guides along with the [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] software on tonymac's site. http://www.tonymacx86.com Lots of great post os/x install fixes using the [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] tool related to sound cards and video. I cant really comment for your install since I have an ATI Radeon card, different mb plus a core i7 930 cpu but if you start with one of the guide on tonys site along with his bootcd you may be on your way.
  14. Yeah, Full install with kakewalk selecting the X58A-UD7 motherboard in the kakewalk setup since the UD3 is not on the list and I made sure my X58A-UD3R was using the lastest bios F5. After the kakewalk install I updated to 10.6.2. Next I installed [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] with the default tools selected along with the audio drivers for the ALC889 (not the A) and make sure you select the 6 port config for your hardware outputs and deselect the 5 port one. I had to use the legacy drivers along with the HDA selection. I rebooted and all was well for the audio.
  15. Hey san1ty. Thanks for the info. I will give it a shot this evening. What I did to get my sound working was visit the www.tonymacx86.com site and download the [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] tool and insert the proper audio kext files into my system. Check it out here. http://www.tonymacx86.com/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=401 I do question the stability on doing it this way over creating a clean DSDT file from my system and modify my settings uniquely like you just outlined. I have a feeling the [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] tool may lead to some system instabilities once Apple releases a new 10.6.x update but I really do not have any proof on that. Im sure there are other more knowledgeable folks here who can talk on this. Anyway thanks again for your message. Doug D
