  1. About this Mac - Startup Disk

    It's true, Startup Disk shows up when I have a USB storage device plugged in, such as, iPod, USB key. Startup Disk also shows up when a DVD drive is installed! OP, do you have a DVD drive installed?
  2. About this Mac - Startup Disk

    Same thing happens to me! GA G31M-ES2L v2.0 Intel 6300 2.8MHz I will see if Startup Disk shows up when I have a USB drive during boot.
  3. Realtek 882 Crackling sound

    are you using wifi? try moving your audio's 3.5mm wire away from your wifi antenna.
  4. Geforce 8400GS 256MB DVi Error

    i have a 8400gs 256mb as well. when i connect my lcd with a dvi cable to the dvi out on my video card, my bios messages won't show up when i'm booting. however, everything works perfectly fine when i connect my lcd to the vga out on my video card. does anybody have the nvcap for 8400gs 256mb?
  5. This is a guide to get Kalyway 10.5.2 with the vanilla kernel running on an Asus P5GC-MX 1333 rev. 2.0 board and update it to 10.5.5. This guide assumes you have the following hardware: Asus P5GC-MX/1333 LGA 775 Intel 945GC Micro ATX Intel Motherboard (link) Any Intel processor that can run the stock kernel (Such as an Intel Pentium E2180) Asus WL-138g V2 PCI Wireless Adapter (Note the "V2". That is very important.)(link) Any compatible memory, mouse, speakers, and IDE or SATA DVD-ROM drive and hard drive PS/2 keyboard for the install (For Darwin bootloader). Any (USB or PS/2) keyboard after the install. Other notes: You will not be able to use the onboard ethernet port First thing's first. The BIOS settings are crucial to get everything functioning. The following settings are the important ones: USB: Enable Legacty USB Support: Disable (Computer will not wake if enabled) USB 2.0 Controller: Enable DVMT Mode Select: Fixed Mode (Computer will have sleep issues if DVMT is used) DVMT/Fixed Memory: 64MB Suspend Mode: S3 Only (I've used Auto without a problem but S3 is recommended by others on the board) HDAudio Controller: Enable Onboard PCIEX 10/100MB LAN: Disable Execute Diable Bit: Enable (osx86 will not boot if enabled) On the motherboard, set jumpers to pins 2-3 for PS2_USBPWR. This is needed for your computer to wake from sleep. (Link) After the BIOS settings are set, load up the Kalyway disc and boot up. Run Disk Utility to format your hard drive as GUID. Name your partition without using any spaces (This is a bug on the Kalyway disc). On the customize screen, the only options you want to check are: kernel vanilla 922 gma950* (Choose this if you are using the onboard GPU. Read below to use a more powerful video card.) intel nvidia via ati hdaudiocontroller nvidiaac97audio realtek sigmatel conexantanalogdeviceshdaudiocodec lastnetkassmbios timemachinefix intelmemorycontroller (optional [a href=http://forum.insanelymac.com/index.php?s=&showtopic=98461&view=findpost&p=704450]link[/a]) So there should be ONLY a total of 8 check marks. The third party applications are an exception. Press install and wait 20 minutes everything will load up. Sound, video, and WiFi will work right away. You can start enjoying your new computer. The following is for people that want to update to 10.5.5 To update to 10.5.5, you will need a different graphics card such as, oh let's say, an eVGA nVidia 8400GS 256MB PCI-e card (The GMA950 has some issues starting from 10.5.3 and up). Connect your VGA cable from the monitor to the DVI-out on the video card using using a VGA-to-DVI adapter. Install 10.5.2 using the Kalyway disc but this time uncheck the GMA950 option and check NVinject-256. After the install, run kalyway_10.5.3_comboupdate following its directions. After the reboot, run Apple's 10.5.4 Delta update. After the reboot, in Terminal type the following: sudo -s while sleep 1; do rm -rf /System/Library/Extensions/AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement.kext; done Run Apple's 10.5.5 Delta update. Do not press restart. Type the following keystroke in Terminal: Ctrl-C Now you can press Restart on the 10.5.5 updater. (Link) After the restart, run 9f23installer.pkg. Select NVInstaller and EFIStudio. EFIStudio will start automatically. Select 8400GS 256MB and Insert into com.apple.boot.plist. Reboot. This next part helps update AppleSMBIOS.kext and gets iMovie '08 working. Find AppleSMBIOS-27 (Fourth release, AKA, Revision 6) iMac version. Use kexthelper to install it. Edit it enter in your computer's values. sudo -s nano /Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/com.apple.Boot.plist Insert whatever your computer's values are. <key>Kernel Flags</key> <string>MemSpeed=800 MemType=DDR2 SerialNum=W55111APPL3</string> Then press the following: Ctrl+X Y Enter touch /Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/ reboot Thank you to everyone on this forum that has helped me set this up. I have added links in this post where I got the information from--so credit really goes out to them.
  6. gma950 only works up to 10.5.2 edit. apparently it works on 10.5.4. i havent tried it, but go here http://forum.insanelymac.com/index.php?s=&...st&p=870037
  7. does your sleep function work still? my sleep works perfectly fine in any scenario (sleep due to idle, sleep invoked via apple menu, sleep invoked by opt+cmd+f12, etc, etc) for about a couple of days after a fresh install. but then suddenly, the computer will stop sleeping. instead it will act like it is trying to go into sleep, but it will not sleep, and i'll hear the hard drive spinning up and spinning down repeatedly. i have the same setup as the OP, but i have gigabyte 7600gs (256mb). same thing happens if i use onboard gma950 without the 7600gs attached. any suggestions or help? does your sleep still work??
  8. ASUS P5GC MX Audio Driver ALC883

    Here's a super easy alternative to get audio working on an Asus P5GC-MX 1333. If you're using Kalyway 10.5.2, select the first 3 audio options when installing. You'll get sound out of the box! I have ALC883 (3 ports) Vendor 10ec Device 0662. Don't ask me why it works--neither of the first 3 options insert the appropriate device and vendor id's--but it makes my sound work. Why it works is beyond me. If anyone can shed some light on this, that would be great.
  9. gma 950 fix for 10.5.4

    Same thing with me. I have a Asus P5GC-MX 1333 with onboard 950GMA. When I had 10.5.2, it was working fine. I guess I'll go back to 10.5.2 or get a PCI-E video card. Edit: Front Row does not work with GMA950 and 10.5.4 as well.
  10. UPDATE: nforcethernetdriver.kext works! it was meant for marvell 88e1116, but it works for my marvell 1116. kernel panic arises with heavy bandwidth usage (d/l large files, viewing flash sites, etc). booting with cpu=1 fixes problem.
  11. Cmedia 8738

    5.1 pass thru doesn't work on my diamond 7.1 ddl xs sound card via spdif. any suggestions?
  12. Support for C-Media 8768+ Sound Chipset?

    check here for c-media 8768+ driver http://forum.insanelymac.com/index.php?s=&...st&p=768524 i'm not getting 5.1 pass thru to my diamond 7.1 ddl xs card though.
  13. How do you get a Marvell 1116 Gigabit Ethernet working? Mine is integrated into the motherboard. I am running Kalyway 10.5.2. I have a Gigabyte GA-M55 plus-S3G (rev. 3.0) (link). It has nForce 430. Is it as simple as editing a kext file? In that case, which kext do you edit the Device and Vendor ID? Or do I have to d/l a particular kext and load that? Or is the LAN supposed to work out of the box with Kalyway 10.5.2 release? Is this LAN card possible on leopard? My Device ID is 0269 and Vendor ID is 10DE. I've searched everywhere on this site and tried editing many kexts. I'm posting here as a last resort to get this headache resolved.
  14. The Hackintosh: Delivered

    does anybody know which hacked leopard disc they are using?
  15. mce remote software

    i would love this support as well.
