  1. Hi, everybody. I have an older machine with a P5W DH Deluxe and an Intel C2D 6600, GTX 285 - and have just found out it may be a great candidate for hackintoshing! (I've spent many hours tweaking several other osx86 builds, so I'm not new to it) but am having a bit of a problem. I've created an installer USB, but when I boot, the system reboots immediately. (I see the apple logo screen refresh for a split second before the reboot.) If I boot with -v, it just gets to the end of the kext loads, and then reboots. Anybody experienced this? I've updated to the latest BIOS, IDE operation is set to AHCI, etc, etc... just need to be able to get into the installer! Thanks in advance.
  2. OSX on Dell Latitude E6520...

    This works great for getting the keyboard/trackpad working. However, the trackpad is so sensitive (and huge) that I'm constantly moving my cursor accidentally. The trackpad isn't recognized as an actual trackpad and so doesn't show up in the system preferences, but does anybody know how I might temporarily disable the trackpad? I'd still like to use the keyboard on the laptop, but would rather stick with a mouse when possible.
  3. Oy, dead again after another reboot. Flakey indeed. Hopefully at least now I know a method for possibly getting it working again. Seems frustrating that something so "core" is so unpredictable. Regardless, thank you for the help! Hopefully a more stable solution will come along at some point.
  4. Andy, thanks, this pointed me in the right direction. I had been installing the kexts from [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] on a recommendation from people in another thread -- indeed, my audio did not work simply by installing the Sabertooth package either -- but I took your advice on the "ordered" install. I removed all audio kexts, deleted the caches, used kextutility, and rebooted. I then extracted the three kexts from the installer pkg (archive) and manually installed each one in the order you specified. Curiously enough, it didn't work after the first reboot, but when I rebooted a second time without changing anything, the audio output devices were recognized and I have sound. It seems to be persisting through subsequent reboots. I'm not sure why it doesn't work from the initial install, but the kexts you provide in the installer do seem to do the trick when installed in that specific order. Thanks again.
  5. Thank you maly70, but unfortunately still no love, with any combination of the above.
  6. So I'm still having major issues with audio (there isn't any ) on my Sabertooth P67 board (Realtek ALC892 chip). I spent a few days removing and reinstalling audio drivers, editing DSDTs, and finally decided to start from scratch, just to make sure I hadn't introduced any additional variables into the mix that were causing it to fail. Fresh install of 10.7, and on the first boot, I did the following: 1) Installed Andy's P67 Sabertooth package 2) BEFORE rebooting, installed ALC8xxxHDA.kext, the AppleHDA rollback, and the 892 enabler using [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url]. Immediately after doing so (before rebooting, still) -- I had glorious sound. In fact, the "installation complete" window in [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] even made its sound. Output devices showed properly in the system settings, iTunes worked, everything worked. At this point I had installed nothing else. I then rebooted, and my audio was once again broken. No output devices. No nothing. So, I rebooted with -v, and this is what I saw: I've tried disabling power management states C1 and C6 in BIOS, but that doesn't seem to have solved my issue either. Any thoughts? I'm coming up empty here after weeks of trying to make the audio work.
  7. Hi all, Had a fairly straightforward and easy installation, used the P8P67 Sabertooth Installer for appropriate kexts, edited NVidia Info.plist to get GTX570 working, and everything seems to be going well for the most part --- but alas, I have no sound. Supposedly, the P8P67 Installer package should have gotten this working (Realtek 892 audio) but I've also tried [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] 3.8 and various combinations of audio driver installs from that. If I boot with -v, I see a few lines that seem to indicate it's loading AHD extensions, but once I'm booted and go to System Preferences -> Sound, it takes forever to launch/freezes up for a bit, and when it finally does load, there are no output devices listed. If anybody has any thoughts on how I might overcome this hurdle, I'd love some suggestions. Thanks in advance!
