  1. Yes... I booted with the following flags but nothing happened: GraphicsInjector=No -x -f cpus=1 arch=i386 When I boot using safe mode the system haults right after the message that Macframework has initialized.
  2. Hello, how are you doing? I just bought this new laptop from Dell and I'm struggling to get it working with Mountain Lion. I downloaded the iAtkos MLU3 from the official website, checked the MD5 number (it passed) and restored the .dmg file to a usb thumb drive. So I booted the laptop with the thumb drive (via UEFI) and it worked fine, actually the installer didn't take more than a minute to load. The installation process was pretty neat and took less than 15 minutes, leaving me with the strange feeling of "it was way too easy" (I got a lot of problems installing Snow Leopard on my old AMD desktop). Then came the problem: the installation won't start! After getting the message DSMOS has arrived the welcome screen simply doesn't pop up! On a quick search I found out that it could be due to my graphics card (an Intel HD4000 and a Nvdia Geforce). I tried deleting all the Nvidia drivers and unused Intel Graphics drivers from the S/L/E but it didn't work. I tried using different kexts (ones provided in OSX86.com) that were for the Dell 15R SE but no success. As well I notice an error referring to the Apple Power Management (did I say it right?) informing that the CPU wasn't recognised, refering it to something involving ACPI. I couldn't find any option to deactivate it on the BIOS (note that I deleted any partition that my computer had when it was bought, so now I got the standard UEFI/BIOS with blocked functions and a 1tb hard drive with Clover bootloader and the broken installation in a GPT scheme). Another error that pops up on the last line (after the DSMOS has arrived message) follows below: [AppleBluetoothHCIControllerUSBTransport] [configurePM] -- ERROR -- waited 30 seconds and still did not get the command Wakeup.notification [iOBluetoothHCIController::setconfigstate] calling register service For this I deleted any bluetooth kext on the S/L/E and the error where gone, leaving the last line with just the DSMOS message, and I think it has no deal with this, since it appears as well on the installer boot and it doesn't get a problem running (to note, with full resolution). Pls, find enclosed a HTML file with my laptop specs, see below an overall: CPU Intel® Core™ i5-3337U third generation (1.8GHz up to 2.7GHz with Intel® Turbo Boost 2.0, 4 Threads, 3Mb Cache) GPU NVIDIA GT625M with 1GB Integraded Graphics Intel HD 4000 6GB SDRAM DDR3 1600 MHz - 2 DIMM Chipset Mobile Intel® HM76 Express Dell Wireless 1703 802.11b/g/n, Bluetooth v4.0 + LE Ethernet 10/100 Realtek At the moment I've got no camera to take a snapshot, but as soon as possible will provide one. Can anybody help me? hardware_info.html
  3. Hello! I'm finally back to my headaches on Snow Leopard! I was using Windows 8 for a while (the consumer preview one) and I was not willing to have to format my hd to install mac os x all over again (I even thought I had forgotten how to work around the stuff) but here I am, with SL 10.6.8 running smooth on my old slugish machine. Although everything's running smooth (well, almost everything) one bug is really annoying me. I'm an enthusiast and I'm trying to learn japanese, and so I do need japanase input capabilities on my computer (and I must say, windows 8 had a great input method, as good as mac os x), but my SL installation refuses to give this in a smooth method. Kotoeri works great just to input hiragana or katakana, but when I try to input kanji it doesn't run properly. When I press the spacebar once it comes up with the first kanji, okay, everything's fine, but when I hit spacebar again it gives a hiccup and then erases everything I wrote, giving me a space only where it should pop up a floating menu for me to choose which character I want. For instance, if I want to write 人 using the pronunciation じん and not ひと I simple can't, because the first kanji to come up for じん is 陣 and if I hit the spacebar again to offer me the other choice it just lags and give me a blank space. See the video I made to show how bad it is. Here it crashed several times (I trimmed the video to make it shorter): http://www.youtube.com/embed/P8faHUVoFb4 Does anyone knows how to fix this up? I really couldn't find it anywhere on the internet...
  4. Need help installing 10.6.1 AMD

    I probably is the best idea. Look, I don't encourage piracy (for so I do have a legal copy of Snow Leopard 10.6.3 that unfortunately is broken) but you my try the Hazard 10.5.4 with SL 10.6.2 combo update. Works perfect. Since my legal copy of SL is broken (and lucky me I didn't have a backup) I used this last time to reinstall the system on my computer and it works fine. After installed I updated right away to 10.6.8 with the Apple combo update and put a 10.8.0 legacy kernel. It's running like a charm (and believe it or not, I spent most of my times with the retail 10.6.3 because I couldn't get my GPU and controllers to work properly). I'll leave the hint, okay!
  5. I had this problem too. Solved it with another fix... Wandering around I found this topic on the forum (http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/253773-amd-dual-core-optimizer-for-snow-leopard/) and to my big surprise it worked perfect. Now Youtube videos don't crash anymore and even Google Chrome works good.
  6. OS X 10.6.2 kernel panic at startup

    Man, thanks a lot. I was just installing the Hazard distro for AMD because my original Snow Leopard DVD got all f***** up, and to my dislike it wouldn't run. Now thanks to your tips it installed very smooth and I was capable of updating to 10.6.8 painless and with ease (really, just installed the combo update and the 10.8.0 legacy kernel pack and it worked and booted), something that was not true with the retail installation (seriously, it took me nearly 2 months to get 10.6.8 running smoothly on a retail installation) Again, thank you very much, my installation now is perfect, no bugs at all, actually it is running way better than it was with Windows 8...
  7. Hey guys, I'm here because I don't know what to do with my keyboard... I bought a slim keyboard from a national brand (Clone) that is a slim model. It looks like a notebook keyboard and is wireless. Everything works fine except the num keypad is always activated, which make it impossible to type letters like U or L or M or etc. and I can not deactivate it. I tried the correct way, which is pressing fn key with num lock but it doesn't work. How can I manage to fix this? Keyboard: Clone Wireless Slim cod. 09302 P.S.: it's a brazilian brand.
  8. I didn't. To be honest I don't have a clue of what you're talking about. What do you mean about patching my libraries? I'm gonna make a research to be sure about it.
  9. Today I made it all over again but first I deleted NVEnabler64.kext and all the retail kexts involved with Nvidia, then I installed the 10.6.8 official Nvidia driver to finally install the combo utpdate. When I rebooted the system reboot smooth (only two error in verbose mode were find, one really annoying where constantly said that map segment has failed) and the desktop appeared. Now I'm reinstalling the driver (my Wifi doesn't work, my video card is not activated and power management is awfull). Also a lot of simple apps keeps crashing, such as iChat and Lizard. Now all I have to do is to "dilapidate" the system. Thank you anyway...
  10. Well, I formatted the installation and installed the Nvidia drivers first (they can't be installed on older system than 10.6.8 but editing the .dist file on the package's files can manage that). Doing this the system booted up one time with incredible fastness (less than 30 seconds) and the video rendering for basic effects (just like the drop down and up of the windows showing menus) was amazing and smooth (my system was a little buggy ) but although all of this cocoa wasn't working. I trying reinstalling the video drive, with the original file (without the modification for it to run in the 10.6.3 version) and when I reboot the problem just came back. As it's said: happiness of the poor don't last long.... Still trying to get it work, if someone has an idea (since I'm a beginner) I would be very happy and thankful...
  11. Dual Layer DVD burning

    I can try updating my firmware (I'm a little careful about this since I messed my last DVD drive updating its firmware). Now just for the record: Today I tried to update my SL 10.6.3 to 10.6.8. I could boot only one time, and on this I checked Disk Utility and guess what, there it said my Drive has support for DVD -R+ DL. Well, maybe my system a little buggy. Thank you, I'll update the firmware and check if 10.6.3 can recognise the DL capacity.
  12. After updating my system from 10.6.3 to 10.6.8 (using the combo download from the Apple Download Site) the system doesn't load the Desktop. On tonymacx86 blog it says to install the latest nvidia drivers, but I didn't see the warning before updating, so I'm stuck right now. Is there a way to install the driver (download in the .dmg format) without a Mac OS X installation available in the broken system or I'll have to format the installation, reinstall the system and made it right from there before updating? PS: Now I have no problem in formatting the current system.
  13. Dual Layer DVD burning

    I don't have a Windows installation, so I'm not able to install windows right now (actually I don't have the installation disc). Using K3b on Linux worked fine. What I'm trying to do is to make it work (burning dual layer dvds) under OS X.
  14. There's an app called Lizard. It offers you a simple interface that automatic made you a boot.plist and a smbios.plist and save them to /Extra. In the smbios.plist you can manage to you OS X identified your system as a MacPro, MacMini, iMac, MacbookPro, Macbook or MacbookAir. You also can choose a CPU type (there aren't much options) and built your own serial. Once saved you can simple reboot OS X and the "make up" will be made.

  15. AMD E-350 .. searching boot cd !

    Man, an advice: don't ask people to do things for you, they won't. You shall ask them how it's done and maybe they'll answer.
