  4. Hi, I once have SL install on my machine before. The recent event due to hard disk failure cause me to get a new drive and now I'm having difficulty putting SL back on my machine. The setup are i7 860 2.8ghz asus p7p55d-le motherboard 8gb ddr3 1.5 tb hard disk partitioned to 1 1TB and 500gb partitions. I'm booting using [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] guessing 2.6 it been with me since my first installation. If i boot without any command i'll be stuck at the grey apple screen. If boot with -x i get kernel panic screen. I tried booting with -v -f -x cpus=1 busratio=21 UHCIreset=No EHCIacquire=No PCIRootUID=1 i'll get stuck at system uptime nanoseconds : 0. Booting with -v get me no where. Tried removing my ram down to 4gb still the same using maxmem=4096 still no help. Using retail 10.6 dvd.... I would like to know what I'm missing out and why i cant install back on the system. Thank you for your help.

  6. i have DWL-G520 and for those that have the supported d-link wireless card I attached kexts that will enable it to be see as airport and fully functional. Copy to /System/Library/Extensions/ and then Kext Utility and restart. Atheros_for_DLink.zip
  7. IDE used this kext I attached with my post.. thanks to tonyma86 site again and google. copy to /extra/extensions/ and run kext utility restart and voila you have ide dvd-rw cd-rw hard disks. enjoy. I think its also an option in [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] on this too but i didnt dare to try was trying to get it running and have a good nights of sleep. JMicron36xATA.kext.zip
  8. Jay I just figure out i have qe/ci in dashboard as your say. for the ide drives if i put in the [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] cd i was able to get dvd-rw (only if i boot into safe mode if not i wont get display but i'm only using [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url]-support) but if i boot normally i dont. I was going to ask have anyone figure out a way to get it to work. I didnt delete any nv kext no kernel panic so far. I used my external for the installation that i image out from the retail disc.
  9. Greeting, I recently installed SL on my hackintosh at this spec: intel i7 860 2.88 4gb ddr3 1300 500gb sata drive IDE dvd burner ATI 4670 1gb ddr3 For the installation I used my external hard disk to clone or restore the SL install disc that i bought from my local mac store. It's not that expensive as I thought it would be. They're a few guide around that I used as guideline. I will not redo any of the guide but will illustrate a little on my path to OS X. After you get your dvd install disc restore to external hard disk will need either the [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] CD or myHack patch on to your external hard disk or thumb drive restore. My best luck was with my hack but will just the bare recommended options that was ticked in. Boot your system with F8 option to boot from the USB drive. As the bootloader boot up hit any key and use -X boot the installer. This will get the installer to boot. Some of the guide i follow they didn't say to boot with -X option. Create your hard disk partition. Make sure its tick with GUID partition format. This is the exact same as the regular mac partition structure. Complete your OS X retail installation. I have better luck using [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] CD to boot up this point and getting to the OS X that previously install. Again using the -X option. My ethernet is working at this point. Graphic is typical safe mode. I connect both vga and dvi on my graphic card because i think its such a hassle to try this try that cable. It works in a lazy man way. Once complete before you update to 10.6.4(my install disc is 10.6.3) back up your ati4600controller.kext and atiframebuffer.kext and atisupport.kext before your start 10.6.4 combo update. After the update complete. Run [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] the latest version you could get your hands on. I used user DSDT on my you could try other its your choice. What I ticked in on [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] - User DSDT - System Utilities - Kext - Audio VoodooHDA 0.2.6 under the experimental version - com.apple.boot.plist - 64bit Apple Boot Screen - smbios.plist - iMac - core i7 - all the OSX86 Software after [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] complete. I got a pop up saying that voodoohda was not properly installed. So i go into /System/Library/Extensions/ Delete AppleHDA.kext Go into Application launched kext helper load it up with the 3 ati kext you back up once that complete launch kext utility. Once all this complete. Reboot your system you should be able to boot into OSX with complete system sound graphic and network. Right now I'm working on getting my PCI wireless adapter DWL-502 to work. I'm not sure if i have qe/ci or not but i made a stop by my local mac store on their imac that have the ati 4670 256mb doesnt seem to say either. If anyone out there that have qe/ci available for hd4670 and showing under system profiler. please either post or pm on the guide you use or share your information. Good luck on your installation. References are search on google on insanelymac and tonymacx86. both guides i used on tonymacx86 and i think on insanelymac that suggest myHack were both extremely well written in my opinion. Since this isnt my first installation it was relatively easy in some area. All my other install were almost 100% compatible. Such as my benq s31 and macbook 13 and my core2duo system.
