    Dell Bios, AHCI/RAID, SSD

    my intel 82562V-2 ethernet built-in is indeed Ox8086 and vendor id is 0x10C0. I don't understand what you mean by set it to fix 100mb FB. Can you elaborate? Under network preferences there is no ethernet adapter present nor in system profile, PCI ethernet card is not found. I got a realtek 8188su USB adapter to work but no ethernet. I wouldn't mind if my 8800 GS 384mb has no QE/CI, but it a pain in the butt browsing with safari and other app using 3D features.

    Dell Bios, AHCI/RAID, SSD

    Thanks for the follow up. I have no problem with ahci with 10.0.15 (official bios) when selecting [raid] option under bios. However, Ethernet still not working with AppleIntelE1000e.kext. the only two lines in verbose mode showing that this kext is merely working are: AppleIntelE1000e(Info): Interrupt Throttling Rate (ints/sec) set to dynamic conservative mode AppleIntelE1000e(Info): changing MTU from 0 to 1500 I believe it is missing the link up. Also, I am still looking for solution to get nvidia 8800 gs 384mb to work properly with 10.8.2. A report from official apple forum suggests that upgrade to 10.8.3 beta fix QE/CI issue. Please help.

    Dell Bios, AHCI/RAID, SSD

    I have dell vostro 200 bios 10.0.15, believe to be similar motherboard as inspiron 530. I could not get the built-in ethernet to work with intel82566MM.kext on 10.8.2. Under System Report (system information) Ethernet Cards labels "This computer does not appear to have any PCI Ethernet Cards installed. Is there a solution to get it to work without adding another ethernet card? also, I have eVga 8800 GS 384MB detected, but no QE/CI. I've tried NVenabler64.kext and EFI Studio but no success (NVenabler Probe Fails at boot). If you have a solution for this card under 10.8.2 please share. Thanks!
  5. try to boot to save mode -x -v, so you can install [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] and your old network kext. [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] also have option to fix permissions and rebuild caches. it also pack with normal and non-dsdt alc8xx kext. I've used it to fix my sound (you need to remove voodooHDA and old HDAenablerxxx before install [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url]). what is your system spec? this info may help other to help you.

    DELL XPS STUDIO 8100 HELP

    you need to use [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] and only 4GB RAM installed. After successfully installed and boot, then you can add the other 4GB to your mainboard. Also make sure bios is set SATA mode to RAID (not ATA). no need for disable HT, or change multiCPU supports. go here for further instruction: http://www.tonymacx86.com/viewtopic.php?f=81&t=12825

    Dell Studio Xps 8100

    late than never find a solution I have successfully installed OSX 10.6.3 and update to 10.6.7 with everything working QE/CI/CL on Dell Studio XPS 8100. more instruction at the bottom USE RAID mode and you also need to inject AHCIPortinjector.kext into /Extra folder of the installation Disc. in raid mode it's ICH8R for studio xps 8100 and you don't need to modify AHCIPortinjector.kext, it is already added there. I use [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] then iAtkos S3 V2 Disc for installation. Without AHCIPortinjector.kext you can successfully go to Installation screen but disc utility will not show/recognize any sata drives. Dont forget to take out ram if your system is more than 4GB. You can insert more Ram after it's successfully installed and boot. go here for further instruction: http://www.tonymacx86.com/viewtopic.php?f=81&t=12825

    Turn a Dell Vostro 200 into a Mac Pro

    iAtkos S3 v2 (OSX 10.6.3) is working very nicely on Vostro 200. Everything is working with little tweaks. At the prompt select disk of installation boot, select Disc but dont click "Next" yet. Click on "Personalize..." Here select a boot loader: PC EFI or Chameleon v2 RC4 Drivers: select all drivers except for some laptop drivers like "battery option" and such. Wait 30 minutes reboot and it is complete. Everything will work except for any additional PCI/PCI express components you may have and on board Ethernet. To have Ethernet working: install Intel82566MM.kext, use Kext Helper to install kext if you are not familar with command line. Make sure to fix permission else it will fail after 1 or 2 reboots. for Nvidia graphic: anything upto 8800 ULtra, I use EFIStudio for simple installation and QE/CI confirmed working. Shutdown/Restart is working. Sleep is not working, I've try to you sleephelper.kext, but still no go both on S1 and S3 mode. Update to 10.6.4 with no problem except for Shutdown will restart your machine. This can be fixed with OpenHaltRestart.kext. if you need kexts or any more details please google.

    How to remove FakeSMC.kext? (Kernel Panic)

    no worry. I just reinstalled the sucker back to 10.6.3 with iatkos s3 v2 and everything is working again. I've read somewhere that I must remove FakeSMC.kext and IOPlatformFamily...kext, then reinstall IOPlatformFamily...kext. However, I couldn't find a link to download IOPlatformFamily and I've wasted 2 days to figure it out. It took me about an hour to reinstall from fresh with all kexts working. I am looking into backup for osx from now on. I've heard apple time machine is not that great comparing to windows backup but that is another issue. Anyhow, thanks for your feedbacks Richard

    How to remove FakeSMC.kext? (Kernel Panic)

    I don't get what you mean. I am trying to remove FakeSMC and its related extensions from my system.
  14. I have OSX 10.6.4 iatkos Version 2 installed I tried to install FakeSMC to monitor my 8800GS temperature from this tutorial: http://www.projectosx.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=1206 I installed with Kext helper the following files iStat_pro.wdgt_wBattery.zip SMC_util2.zip smcK_Stat_i.app.zip FakeSMC_rev405_Snow.zip after installed FakeSMC my OSX got kernel panic and frozen with the message "You must restart..." at the Apple Logo Loading. I've tried to use Single user mode boot (-s), but was unable to remove FakeSMC.kext. So I tried safemode (-x). I was able to get in and deleted FakeSMC.kext from /System/Library/Extensions/. When try to boot normally I got hung at loading without any message. on Verbose mode I found it is hanging at: "ACPI_SMC-PlatformPlugin::registerLPCDriver - failed to locate SMC driver" Once again when I try to go to safemode (-x), it hung at blue screen before login logo. How do I completely remove FakeSMC and its plugin and back to the way it was before? Thanks
