  1. [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] - 4GB only for install then you can put in the rest of your memory kakewalk - I had all 12 GB of my memory installed when I tried it with kakewalk.
  2. jpa, he used the EX58-UD5 configuration in the kakewalk installer per Nullspots suggestion/findings: Jfoo, Did you have to go back and use kakeboot with the X58A-UD3R option in your install or just leave the configuration for the EX58-UD5 board? What I'm wondering is if that is a needles step in the overall install process now?
  3. Thank god jfoo! I've read this thread at least 15 times and installed using two different methods with partial success in both. However I was trying to do all this at work(only time I had time) and I kept over looking things like the 10.6.4 audio fix post that nullspot made AND completely forgot about the jmicronSATA.kext to get my blu-ray drive working. Thank you for putting it all together it works beautifully! and thanks to everyone else for their contributions. Just one small typo I saw, you might consider linking directly to jacoverse's post #79 instead of just linking to the thread page. also, should be: Advanced Options -> Kext -> Disk -> IOAHCIBlockStorageInjector
  4. I somehow replicated your kernel panic on one of my 15th install's the screen you attached is something that comes up even before you get into the installer so you're going to have to use something else to repartition the drive outside of the installer. Since I have been installing using both the [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] method and Kakewalk I simply used the kakewalk USB stick method to repartition the drive then you could exit the installer and basiclly restart your install process using [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] if that's the method you prefer. I'm sure you could also get something like Partition magic to parition that drive, if you don't have a 8GB USB stick for kakewalk.
  5. 1.) Does your computer resume from sleep if you hit the power button? Allot of the other users expressed that their sleep does work but only if you wake up the computer with the power button. 2.) I'm not entirely sure how to properly 'install' a DSDT either, however I have tried using [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] with the "User DSDT" Option but then I believe you have to repair permissions. You can do this in [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] by selecting the option right below "User DSDT" called "System Utilities" this does two things, rebuild's the caches and repairs permissions. If you were 'installing' someone else's DSDT manually I think all you'd have to do is replace the one that's in /Extra/ Folder then you'd could either type the commands in the terminal to repair permissions and rebuid caches or you could use other software that does it for you like "kext Utility". 3.)I've had the same issue with the CPU not showing the correct clock speed after I've bumped up the multiplier in the BIOS. What does show correctly is if you bump up the clock speed of the RAM. Out of the box my 12 GB of RAM was running around 1200 and I bumped it up to 1600. Now it shows as 1598 under "About this Mac" in OSX. I think in order for the CPU to show that it's been overclocked you have to edit some aspect of the DSDT? Hoping someone with experience could shed some light in this area as well. When you installed with "User DSDT" Option did you use Nullspot's (Post #33) or someone elses DSDT from this thread? Just curious because I am having problems where I lose the ability to use the Blu-Ray Burner when I use someone elses DSDT. But the alternative is having to boot from [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] each time I'd want to enter the OS.
  6. Just wanted to express my thanks for Nullspot and many other's who started this thread and contributed to it. I have tried both installation methods ([url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] + [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url]) and Kakewalk 2.2 using Nullspots procedure. I've found that I can get all the major componets working with either installtion method described in this thread: Audio, Ethernet, Graphics etc. However I am still having an issue that I'm hoping someone could help me resolve. Depending on which method you use to install, there comes a point where you have to either use someone's DSDT ([url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] method) or use kakeboot to reinstall the correct motherboard (Gigabyte EX58-UD5 in initial install and then X58A-UD3R option after you get the OS installed). When you do one or the other depending on which method you use, I basically lose the ability to use my DVD burner. Before I make either of the changes I am able to use the burner to burn DVD's, CD's, and hypothetically(haven't tested) Blu Ray DVD's. the burner is a LG WH10LS30 Blu Ray Burner The rest of my hardware is described below in my signature. Any insight would be extremely helpful, as I mentioned before I have installed OSX 10.6.4 using both methods described in this thread with success. Thank you in advance for your time and also a special thanks to the following for thier guidance thoughout this thread: nullspot Phorte delicatepc howboutjoe jdc econ3000 heythisisdave d00d (for his power management thread) jayco437 Kunal2139 jacoverse (Reaaltec_8111D_3264) maleorderbride
  7. Do you are saying you cannot do the following:? When you load the installer from either Kakewalk or [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] method, you eventually get to a screen where you see "Install Mac OS X" up at the top of the screen choose Utilities --> Disk Utility --> click on your Hard drive in the left hand pane --> Partition (right hand pane) --> 1 partion, Mac OS Extended (Journaled), GUID Partition Table ---> Partition --> Exit out of the Disk Utility --> Continue with installation
  8. delicatepc and Phorte, Do you recommend using the USB method(Phorte I saw in your sig you used USB) or CD method? I saw a thread that both of you have posted on for a Rev 2 support, did you ever get 'sleep' working correctly? Do you have any suggestions on a wireless card I can get that will be compatible? The build I will be attempting later this week: Intel Core i7-930 Bloomfield 2.8GHz Quad-Core GIGABYTE GA-X58A-UD3R Motherboard G.SKILL 12GB (6 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 EVGA 01G-P3-1158-TR GeForce GTS 250 1GB 256-bit LG Black 10X Blu-ray Burner CORSAIR HX Series CMPSU-850HX 850W SAMSUNG Spinpoint F3 HD103SJ 1TB 7200 RPM SATA COOLER MASTER HAF 932 RC-932-KKN1-GP Black Steel Scythe SCMG-2100 Sleeve CPU Cooler Thanks people.
