  1. Hi, did you ever get this issue resolved? It just started happening on my E5420, Bios A14, i5-2520M with HD 3000 running Yosemite 10.10.5 . Not sure if the issue was always there but noticed it today.

    myHack.kext Plugins vs. Extra Extensions

    Ah, that makes sense. Thanks for the explanation! So much changed in OSx86 since the Tiger days.
  3. Can someone explain to me why myHack has a bunch of .kexts in its Plugins folder? It seems they are the same kexts I have in /Extra/Extensions. Looks like OSX prefers the versions in myHack.kext/Contents/Plugins - I thought that the preferred location for hackintosh kexts was in /E/E so as to be safe when running updates?
  4. I installed Mavericks a few weeks ago on my Dell Latitude D830 using the boot pack and postinstall from osxlatitude.com. All hardware works great, the machine is very stable. Only one issue: sometimes when I boot/reboot the laptop, after the Apple logo/boot splash screen I get no image on-screen. If I reboot again, this time with the -f ignore caches flag, I am able to get into OS X with video fine. Anyone know what this could be? Been a while since I've worked on a hackintosh so a little rusty. Hardware: Dell Latitude D830 Core 2 Duo T7500 @ 2.2GHz 4GB DDR2 NVIDIA Quadro NVS 140M (OS X reports NVIDIA GeForce 8400M GS 256MB) Dell Wireless 1505 Draft-N (Broadcom) Broadcom NetXtreme 5755M Gigabit Ethernet Software: Latest Chameleon as of 3 weeks ago (forget which release) OS X 10.9 OSXLatitude EDP
  5. I'm at a complete loss here. Just updated my Mac Pro to OS X Lion. I have a few folders, plus my home folder shared via SMB for access from some Linux and Windows machines on my network. However, since Lion, no computers except my Inspiron hackintosh can access any SMB shares on the Mac Pro, when they all used to work perfectly. After looking at this thread (https://discussions.apple.com/thread/3206725?tstart=0), i opened up the /var/log/krb5kdc/kdc.log and saw the following.

  6. Thanks so much for this fix. I never would have thought of it myself. Now not having sleep on my Inspiron 640m is not such a big deal, since it boots in 30 sec!
  7. If you have Intel wireless (Centrino sticker) it won't work. You'll need to swap it for a Broadcom card like the Dell Truemobile 1390, 1490 or 1505 (available cheap on eBay.)
  8. So the drive in my old PowerBook G4 12" failed. I figured it's the opportunity to upgrade it to a quieter, bigger drive, so i went out and got a 320GB WD Scorpio Blue. I took apart the PowerBook (a 50-some step process, according to iFixIt) and swapped the drive. After reassembling the thing and booting the Leopard installer, I found that my internal hard drive is not detected. Under "ATA " in System Profiler, only the SuperDrive shows up. The hard drive DOES spin up, and it's not DOA (I tested it in an external case, and even partitioned it using Disk Utility as Apple Partition map). But I CANNOT get the PowerBook to see it. Has anyone encountered this before/ have any suggestions? The PowerBook was working perfectly until yesterday, and I'd hate to have to get rid of the little thing.
  9. The problem is with the AppleIntegratedFramebuffer.kext version that comes on that DVD; it's not compatible with the GMA950 in your Dell. Try iATKOS 7. Or, if you want, I have a method for installing Snow Leopard over at my blog: http://bit.ly/cC7LsV
  10. I've got a MacBook Pro, an iMac and a few hackintoshes on my home network. I was wondering if it's possible to use spotlight to search another computer. The Mac OS X info page on apple.com says "you can also search other computers on the network" (http://www.apple.com/macosx/what-is-macosx/spotlight.html) my question is HOW?
  11. Got it working! I had to install using another mac, and sleep doesn't work, but everything else is fine. See here: http://matthieu.yiptong.ca/2010/01/18/snow...me1405-updated/
  12. Hey, same here, Aspire 5570Z and trying to install Snow Leopard.... Anyone have any luck?

    Boot stuck

    my Core 2 Duo upgraded Aspire 5570Z hangs at "using new irq layout" too. The only way i managed to get past this is by using the "cpus=1" boot flag. did you find a better fix?

    Broadcom 440x Ethernet under Snow Leopard

    Hey, any developments on this? I tried that kext but still get no IP sometimes.

    Sounds like you might have replaced the IO80211Family.kext with an older version. Try restoring it to the original 10.5.8 kext and see if it works.
