  1. A Simple Guide to the 4830/4850/4870/4870x2/4890

    You rock Interesting thing was that it worked fine using my 20" Apple LCD. As soon as I switched over to my 24" Dell it had all the standard symptoms. Those two files fixed it though!
  2. P5K-SE - Retail Leopard Instalation

    Well, I built a new boot123 with voodoo kernel, and it's getting further. Now I get stuck with; Still waiting for root device I have tried a few modified boot disks, including yours with the voodoo kernel. Have ensured SATA is set to AHCI. have pulled out all extra hard drives. Can't seem to get past this.... Latest attempt is with your boot123 with voodoo kernel and boot flags as; rd(0,1)/mach_kernel.voodoo -v -legacy rd=disk4s0 Thoughts? ... About to go buy a new processor and risk the wife's ire. thanks!
  3. P5K-SE - Retail Leopard Instalation

    I have seen a few others post the same issue I am having, but am not yet able to find a resolution anywhere. I have done the following; 1. Download all files, burn PK5Family.iso (tried a few others as well..) 2. Burn retail 10.5.6 leopard disk 3. Following instructions for booting with Boot 123 disk, then putting in retail disk. At this point, it shows the grey background with the apple logo and stays there forever. No spinning icon, not error, just sits there. If I boot verbosely, it clears the text off and displays a blank screen at this point. Just before switching to this screen, it displays the following text. I have tried tinkering with my BIOS settings, as well as updating the BIOS to the latest revision and resetting to defaults. Not sure where to go at this point... I am curious if perhaps the retail installation does not work with a pentium 4 CPU, and requires a dual/quad core. I have installed patched copies in the past (kalyway, 10.5.1 and a few 10.4.x) with no issue, but they may be modified to support pentium 4. Hardware: Asus P5K-E Wifi-AP Pentium 4 3.2Ghz 2GB DDR3 Crucial RAM Way too many hard drives, but have tried with both IDE and SATA Pioneer SATA DVD drive Would prefer getting a retail install working than going back to a modified install, so any help is appreciated. thanks.
  4. Network issue on p5ld2-vm

    In case anyone else runs into this, it turns out to be a power management issue. Fixed now. Though it still flakes out on initial boot, it doesn't die when the box sleeps any longer. yee haw
  5. Everything on this system is working perfectly at this point. Currently running 10.4.8, and have sound, microphone, and nvidia all working. My _only_ problem right now is that when the system first boots up, the networking doesn't work. In the network settings it says: "the cable for built-in ethernet is not plugged in" The cable _is_ plugged in. Green lights on router/NIC. If I unplug the cable and plug it back in, everything works fine. Sort of annoying to have to re-plugin the network cable anytime I boot up or wake the system from sleep though. any ideas? thanks!
