  1. I used pretty much the same guide you made, except with the nvidia drivers. I used dougaa's extra folder though, and edited the com.apple.boot so my apple splash screen could show in high res. Is the nvidia driver a 400 -500 series thing? I've only used graphics enabler, but I have a 260. If I could use the driver, would it offer better performance?
  2. Thanks for the clarification on 64-bit. As long as there is no day to day noticeable differences, I'll stay with the compatible setting. Here is the link to the dsdt edit. Its from this thread, post number 140. http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php...t&p=1521676 Here is the thread (DSDT Auto-Patcher) where they are still using the IOACHIBlockStorageInjector.kext saying that it is not used because the "fix" had hot plug problems (maybe why d00d omitted it in his guide). I assumed they were talking about the dsdt "fix" that was linked to above. It's in the first post. http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php...t&p=1571259 I got the link to the DSDT Auto-Patcher thread from the first post of the previous page (24) of this thread. I hope this helps. Thanks again for everything!
  3. Just updated to FE yesterday with dougaa's extra folder. I changed his dsdt to reflect the orange icon "fix" instead of using the orange icon fix kext. I know it's not 100% according to a link posted earlier in the thread, but I don't really hot plug at all, and I prefer the least amount kexts as possible. I also edited his com.apple.boot file (Graphics Mode key) with an editor because I lost my high res apple logo on boot with his original com.apple.boot. I also had to use Chameleon v2 RC5 r700 because for some reason the r698 failed on install. I assume this is okay because it is a higher release than the one included. Other than that everything works great. Thanks for all of your (and MOB's) work. P.S. What is the deal with the arch=i386 flag in the com.apple.boot? What I mean is if I run a 64-bit app, will I see a performance hit at all? Will I still be able to take advantage of all the RAM I have available?

    Hi again, for some reason, this is the only place I can reply... I'm not really a new user, I just don't post a lot.
  6. I've been running strong for quite awhile, but a couple of things are annoying right now and I want to see if anyone has a fix for them. 1) On a cold boot, after 8 hours or so, my RAM count is always 8 GB in the boot-loader (aseres boot-loader, the one from [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url]), and I have to boot a second time to get it to recognize all 12 GB, everyday, its not that big of a deal, but having to boot my computer twice everyday can get frustrating. 2) The only way to get internet (using the one from earlier in the thread to get 64-bit and Ethernet) consistently every time is to boot in verbose mode. If I boot the computer and way away, it defaults to normal boot mode, and sometimes the internet does not work. I have to reboot and it works, or boot in verbose and it works every time. Again, minor, but kind of an annoyance. Thanks for any help.
  7. Everything went smoothly. Just replaced with nullspots dsdt.aml, and loaded jacoverse's kext and I was back to normal in no time. d00d's kext only worked in 32-bit for some reason. Now for some mild overclocking.
  8. Tried this in S/L/E on my new rev 2 ud3r a moment ago. 32-bit worked fine, but no go in 64-bit. Maybe I missed something.
  9. So I had to RMA my rev 1.0 board because I forked up the cpu pins (as a result all my memory was not recognized anymore) and they sent back a rev 2.0 board. If I had everything working before in 64-bit, would all I need now is to replace the dsdt with nullspots dsdt and install jacoverse' IONetworkingFamily.kext to (E/E) to get back to where I was (64-bit with ethernet)? (On the Snow Leopard side anyway, because I know I have to setup the bios and everything the way I had it before, and probably reinstall windows altogether because the boards are different) On another note has anyone tried d00d's newly compiled RealtekR1000 kext in place of jacoverse's? I guess there would be no need to if we're good in 64-bit now with jacoverse's, but I was just curious.
  10. Well I got the board today in the mail and looked through the plastic and while I was anticipating a Rev 2.0 board, it says it is a Rev 1.0 on the corner of the board, so I guess I'm "lucky" in that regard. I guess I just need to follow the tonymac guide or just use the kakewalk method and I should be okay. I'll do more reading and try it out tomorrow. Thanks for everything!
  11. Thanks for your reply! So I should wait on the on-board ethernet if I want to take advantage of all 12 GB in one program. I did order a wireless card off of the approved list on osx86 wiki that does work with 64-bit, just in case. Is there any reason why I should use [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] and or kakewalk over chameleon rc 3 or 4? Or do they do they all do same thing? Still reading and researching......thanks!
  12. I just ordered this processor (930) and board (not sure if it is going to be a 2.0 or not, but probably is) from newegg, along with 12GB of Cosair XMS RAM, and a GTX 260. I'll be keeping my eye on this thread as the parts roll in on Tuesday. I've only successfully done two laptops and they are exactly the same spec-wise (Dell E1705). I used the bootcd method with chameleon on the efi partition with a few kexts in E/E and 2 in S/L/E. No DSDT and video through NVInject_64. Other than the addition of the DSDT posted here, and possibly an EFI string, can I use the same method (bootcd and chameleon for the coming install in a couple of days? I am kind of confused because I see kakewalk and [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url], and am not sure what they are (still researching). Thanks for any help you can give. Also will I be able to do 64-bits to take advantage of all 12 GB? Thanks!
