  1. DBT-122 Not Working

    I had no problem finding the path to the Info.plist (Familiar with that aspect, though I used nano) but the problem I'm having is with the "reach the line about your bluetooth" There are multiple different devices listed in the plist, and all of them are either Broadcom BCM2045's or 2046's, mine is a 2035 apparently (According to the intermittently appearing device name in Bluetooth Assistant), which is not listed. When it worked for you, did you have a DBT-122 also or a different device? Anyone else who knows where I should be editing feel free to chime in too
  2. DBT-122 Not Working

    I have 10.6.4 with an i5 750 and EVGA P55 LE, got everything working except Bluetooth (And ethernet but I use a wifi card which detects as AirPort out of the box so I don't care about that as much as this). I have a D-Link DBT-122, which absolutely will not detect anything. It comes up in System Profiler under USB as DBT-122: DBT-122: Product ID: 0xf111 Vendor ID: 0x2001 Version: 0.01 Speed: Up to 12 Mb/sec Manufacturer: D-Link Location ID: 0x7d100000 Current Available (mA): 500 Current Required (mA): 100 But under Bluetooth in System Profiler, I get nothing, and no device is detected in the Bluetooth menu. If I unplug it and plug it back in, it then appears under Bluetooth in System Profiler but with incorrect details: Apple Bluetooth Software Version: 2.3.3f8 Hardware Settings: Manufacturer: Unknown Name: Bluetooth Power: On Discoverable: Yes Vendor ID: 0 Product ID: 0x1 Requires Authentication: No It then also comes up as either "Broadcom BCM2035" or "Name not available" in the Bluetooth system preferences pane and if I try to set up a new device, doesn't ask me if I want to set up a keyboard or mouse or whatever like on a real Mac, it goes straight to the finding devices screen and never finds anything. Other devices also do not find it. I know it's not faulty because it's working perfectly in Windows with my Apple Bluetooth Keyboard right now, but ironically, not in OS X. Is there anything I should be doing to get this to work? Research says these devices work out of the box... EDIT: Also just came up in Bluetooth Setup Assistant as 00-13-46-00-60-A0
  3. As per title, when I had 10.6.3, my About This Mac would correctly show my RAM as 4GB DDR3 1520Mhz, which it was at the time. However, now, while it should be 1600Mhz (as I have increased my overclock since then), About This Mac is incorrectly displaying it as 667Mhz DDR2. I know I could fix this by manually entering the information in my smbios.plist (Currently there are no entries regarding memory), as is the "solution" that I have come across while searching, but I'd like to have my install be accurate as it once was, and show correct memory by itself. Any suggestions on what file I might need to replace or roll back for Snow Leopard to correctly recognise my RAM without resorting to faking it in smbios? EDIT: My motherboard is an EVGA P55 LE, CPU i5 750.
  4. As it seems nobody knows the answer to my initial question I've decided I'm going to try and synchronise the partition tables by hand, that is, making them match in size by using a tool which doesn't see the GPT and just directly edits the MBR (Windows does that apparently, hence my problem in the first place) and one which does see the GPT. My first thought for editing the GPT table was gparted, but I've heard it can mess up the bootloader? To that effect, what partitioning tools do people use to resize partitions on their dual boot setups? Thanks.
  5. NTFS Drives No Longer Writeable

    I've established the problem is with the GPT/MBR hybrid, there is a mismatch in their partition tables, Windows sees the more up to date MBR table, OSX sees the more out of date GPT table. I've looked into gptsync, I'm not quite sure it can sync GPT to MBR though, does anyone know how I would go about fixing this mismatch?
  6. NTFS Drives No Longer Writeable

    Rather worryingly, I have somewhat identified the problem. In Windows, the following is listed (I've done this by hand): That's very different from what Snow Leopard sees. I know that the 200MB is the GPU, the 129MB is something to do with booting Windows 7 and is normal, but Windows sees the C:/ as a completely different size than Snow Leopard does (The resizing I did in Windows seems not to have been carried over to Snow Leopard) and the partition I made in Snow Leopard seems not to have taken. Windows has run chkdsk and it all seems to be okay, my data isn't corrupted (Though I will be backing up!), but this really worries me. Does this mean my partition table is corrupt? What's going on?
  7. As per title, Snow Leopard and Windows 7 were getting along really well, sharing drives, until I resized two of the partitions in Windows 7. Now, those partitions are read only in OSX, but the other NTFS partitions are still fine, using MacFuse and NTFS-3G. It could be a coincidence, but if I run diskutil, I get the following; /dev/disk0 #: TYPE NAME SIZE IDENTIFIER 0: GUID_partition_scheme *640.1 GB disk0 1: EFI 209.7 MB disk0s1 2: Apple_HFS Snow Leopard 30.0 GB disk0s2 3: Microsoft Basic Data Windows 50.0 GB disk0s3 4: Microsoft Basic Data Documents 60.0 GB disk0s4 /dev/disk1 #: TYPE NAME SIZE IDENTIFIER 0: FDisk_partition_scheme *1.0 TB disk1 1: Windows_NTFS Media @ Samsung 1TB ... 1.0 TB disk1s1 /dev/disk2 #: TYPE NAME SIZE IDENTIFIER 0: FDisk_partition_scheme *1.0 TB disk2 1: Windows_NTFS Media @ Samsung 1TB ... 1.0 TB disk2s1 The two partitions that do not work are Windows and Documents. The two 'Media @' drives are fine. I'm guessing it has something to do with the fact the two NTFS partitions I resized in Windows 7 now appear in Snow Leopard as "Microsoft Basic Data", while the original writeable partitions on the other drives appear as Windows_NTFS. However, I had some free space on disk0, and I created an NTFS partition in Snow Leopard with Disk Utility using NTFS-3G option to test this theory. /dev/disk0 #: TYPE NAME SIZE IDENTIFIER 0: GUID_partition_scheme *640.1 GB disk0 1: EFI 209.7 MB disk0s1 2: Apple_HFS Snow Leopard 30.0 GB disk0s2 3: Microsoft Basic Data Windows 50.0 GB disk0s3 4: Microsoft Basic Data Documents 60.0 GB disk0s4 5: Microsoft Basic Data Test 489.9 GB disk0s5 Partition 5, 'Test' was created in Snow Leopard as an NTFS drive. It is read and writeable, and yet it appears as Microsoft Basic Data, the same as the 'Windows' and 'Documents' drives which I have not been able to write to since Windows 7 resized them. Any help would be much appreciated, I have no idea what to do but I want to be able to write to Windows for Parallels, and I need to be able to write to Documents as it is the shared drive between the two OSes (FAT32 is not sufficient for my needs.)
  8. Chameleon Not Installing Correctly?

    bash-3.2# diskutil list /dev/disk0 #: TYPE NAME SIZE IDENTIFIER 0: GUID_partition_scheme *640.1 GB disk0 1: EFI 209.7 MB disk0s1 2: Apple_HFS Snow Leopard 30.0 GB disk0s2 3: Microsoft Basic Data Windows 50.0 GB disk0s3 4: Microsoft Basic Data Documents 60.0 GB disk0s4 5: Microsoft Basic Data MEDIA 489.9 GB disk0s5 bash-3.2# fdisk -f boot0 -u -y /dev/rdisk0 fdisk: could not open MBR file boot0: No such file or directory
  9. Chameleon Not Installing Correctly?

    By d and p do you mean the disk and partition of my Win 7 install? Or do I need to run those commands on the Snow Leopard partition?
  10. Hi, I have installed Snow Leopard using [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] Supported + [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url], 10.6.3 Combo Update and Retail DVD. Snow Leopard seems to be running very well, however, I can only boot it with the [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] CD in. If I take the CD out, even though [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] w/ Supported CPU has been installed, I don't get Chameleon at all, just a blank prompt. Put the CD back in, I can select either my Snow Leopard or Windows 7 install partitions. I'm at a loss at what to do, Google isn't helping, the only problems I have seen are with people who have at least gotten Chameleon to appear. EDIT: I should also mention, I have followed the following instructions (My OSX partition was the same as his so they were followed to the letter)
  11. Planned i5/P55 Build

    Ah, cool! I take it that's a good indication they'll work on the GTX 260 as well?
  12. Planned i5/P55 Build

    Yeah I read good stuff on the GTX 260 working with QE/CI and OpenCL but absolutely nothing on dual monitors. I'll have to have another look into that at some point, let me know if you test yours out As for wifi, nah mine's not PCIe, it's just a PCI wifi g card. From what I've read I'm about 70% sure it'll work okay with Airport. Worst case scenario, it doesn't work and I go out and buy one that does, they're not exactly expensive. And yeah I'm registered there, this is Steelix.
  13. Planned i5/P55 Build

    Figured as much. Changed my option to an Asus GTX 260, which I've read are confirmed working with QE/CI and OpenCL? However, I can't find any info on running dual monitors other than some guy who was complaining he couldn't get it working. The other thing I forgot to mention is I have an Asus PCI Wifi G (Identifies as being Broadcom in Win Device Manager) card I'm planning on putting in the new machine, can't find much info on how that will go, any advice there? Looks like maybe AirPort picks up broadcom chipset cards okay? By the way, you wouldn't happen to be the same Mackilroy from the EV B&B would you?
  14. Hey guys, planning on building a PC pretty soon, got it into my head I might try to run Snow Leopard on it cause I prefer it to Windows 7. Done some reading, but would like some advice on which of the following parts may/may not work; CPU: Intel Core i5 750 RAM: 2x 2GB DDR3 F3-10666CL7D-4GBRH (G.Skill Ripjaws) GPU: ATI Radeon HD5830 1GB (Gigabyte, have heard there may not be drivers for this?) Mobo: EVGA P55 LE Optical: SATA DVR-218LBK (Pioneer) HDD: A few various different SATA 7200rpm drives, and a planned future upgrade to a G.Skill Falcon II SSD. Any advice on features which flatout won't work, will work, or will require patching would be very much appreciated. Links to install guides even moreso! EDIT: I should add, I am hoping to overclock, will be multi booting with Win7 64 bit and also possibly Ubuntu, and run dual monitors.
