  1. Okay, so I've been trying, on and off, to install a retail 10.6 on an H55n with the follow specs: Intel i3-540 Gigabyte H55n-USB3 2GB Kingston DDR3-1333 150W Antec SFF Power Supply (in Antec ITX case) Other components, such as the DVD drive and HDD have been swapped, but on install, the installation stays at a certain time, which is usually between 30 and 25 mins remaining. I have also tried with a Nvidia 210 graphics card, which did not help the matter. My last thought is that it's a power issue, although the same machine does not seem to mind having Windows 7 installed and used heavily for an extended amount of time (up to 6 days uptime). Is there anything that I'm missing or should I try another power supply? Cheers.

    amd 785g chipset works with osx86?

    Did you try different sata ports? Make sure that your DVD drive is on the slave Sata channel to the HDD.
  3. Okay, among many other issues that I've had to deal with, the keyboard and mouse (PS2) are behaving strangely. For some reason, after booting, there is no response from my mouse buttons or keyboard for a few minutes. I have total control over the cursor, but I can't interact with anything. It seems to be locking up, but plugging in drives, etc mounts and unmounts them instantly. Also, after digging through many GMA 950 kexts, I found one that seems to work for default resolution, BUT: It only works if I boot into Safe Mode with -x. Otherwise, I get a pale blue screen, similar to the one that appears before the boot screen. I also get this during boot under verbose: "alkor: setting aapl [different settings] <data not shown>" I used Snowleo's 10.6 ISO, but it's been much rougher than my old Kalyway install. HP Pavilion DV1000 Core Duo 1.86GHz Intel 945GM chipset Intel 950 GMA graphics Intel Pro 100 LAN Intel 3945 abg Wifi. ...I know, it's a lost cause. Edit: I got the graphics working by deleting more 950 kexts in Safe Mode, but the mouse problem still exists. Given the amount of kexts I went through trying to get them working, and that I had the same issue with USB devices, I don't think it's a driver issue. Also, most of the time when they kick in, everything I clicked or pressed happens at once. It's worth mentioning that the graphics don't seem quite right as certain things are stuttering when opening, such as dock context menus.

    Guide Install SL on GA-MA785GT-UD3H

    Awesome, as soon as my DL limit resets, I'll give that a go on my 785GT-UD3H.

    Thanks, but it's a shame that's only 10.5.7

    Compatible wireless card with inter pro 4965 agn

    Because Linux has been a wider-used, legitimate OS mostly built by large corporations that chase up drivers for hardware so they can distribute it in the business sector. OSX86, on the other hand, is legally ambiguous small-scale attempt to get an Operating System to work on hardware it was not intended to be on. It has something to do with the Linux architecture, too. Linux contains millions of drivers and loads the appropriate ones on startup, that way, drivers just get added to the main kernel as time goes on and no more hassle is required. Not to mention that Linux is entirely open source, so more people are more familiar with the workings and able to create drivers. It's a shame, there's no doubt, but that's how it is. You'll have to take this as a reply to your identical posts in several other threads, too.

    [Windows users] App to check hardware compatibility

    Looks like my rig's been given the all-clear, now I just need to get it booting. I'll post the reg dump of the other computer when I get the chance.

    [Windows users] App to check hardware compatibility

    Hmmm, not having any luck with this program. Extracted and ran it on XP Pro, but the content window is blank. Pentium 2.8 with some Dell-based scoket 478 board. There's no hardware listed at all. Is there something that I'm doing wrong? Cheers. EDIT: Just found out (family's computer, not my system) that it's only got SP3 installed. Before I bother to back up documents and install it, could that be the problem?

    Intel Wireless Drivers [OSx86]

    I want to start this post by mentioning that I've been digging through threads for the past few days, and I can't seem to establish this question: Is there any way to get the Intel 3945 working with WPA networks under either 10.5 or 10.6? 10.5 doesn't seem to be possible and 10.6 is currently giving me grief even booting. Cheers.

    Okay, I have the same Distro and tried the same steps with no luck, but I'll get back to that. I got the DVD to boot by changing SATA ports until the DVD Drive was on a Master and HDD was on a Slave of some sort. I used "busratio=17 -v" parameters for installation boot. Installed fine, booting is the issue. GA-785GT-UD3H Phenom II X4 965 @stock onboard GPU (ATI 4200) Snowleo 10.6.2 (distro you had) First boot (with cpus=1 busratio=17 -v -x -f): I still get this: panic(cpu 0 caller 0x2a6ac2): Kernel trap at 0x00296416, type 14=page fault, registers: CRO: 0x8001003b... more lines like this Error code: 0x00000000 Debugger called: <panic> Backtrace (CPU 0), Frame : Return Address (4 potential args on stack) 0x4d223c58 : 0x2.... more unintelligible lines. About 10 [indent]Kernel Extension in backtrace (with dependancies): [b]com.apple.iokit.IOUSBFamily[/b](3.7.8)@0x4d595000->0x4d5c3fff [/indent]BSD process name corresponding to current thread: kernel_task Mac OS Version: Not yet set Kernel Version: Darwin Kernel Version 10.0.0: Fri Jul 31...; root:xnu-1456.1.25~1/RELEASE_I386 System Model name: MacPro2,1 Now, the only real thing I can make of that is the bolded line: com.apple.iokit.IOUSBFamily(3.7.8), so I assume that it's having an issue with USB hardware, but I don't remember installing the USBFamily patch during the install. Is that worth a shot? Cheers.
