    Does it reboot? Do you get the Darwin Bootloader if you press F8 while it is booting? If you do, use the -v flag to boot, that will show any errors. If not, it may be the fact that PCEFI was not installed correctly. Keep us posted, we'd like to know how this goes.
  2. 8600GT driver...

    I may sound cynical, but DON'T buy the 8600gt. I've had one since release and it has never worked, not much has changed either. Buy an 8800gts, they have fallen in price IF you want an 8 series. I know it costs far more, but it WILL WORK. In the medium term you would have realized it was a much better investment for OSX. Without a working card, OSX is useless. A 7300GT is good if you want a cheap card.
  3. Mount Failed - NTFS Disk

    They do work. They are slow, would be nice to get paragon working. Since it is not mounted as a NFS.
  4. Darwin nForce4 ATA/SATA controller

    Works on MCP61, NForce 430 @Debauchery Injecting the kext should work.
  5. Mount Failed - NTFS Disk

    1. How are your partitions set-up and which are active?

  7. Mount Failed - NTFS Disk

    Tried the above, (Paragon mac-ntfs 3.3) I am having the same mounting problem. I can see it works for so many people, but not for the O.P. nor I! I verified/repaired all HFS+ disks in Disk Utility. I also checked all NTFS Volumes under Vista. No errors. When I used NTFS-3g, when a disk had errors, it would not mount, but in this case they are all clean. Are there any working NTFS solutions on Leo yet? On Leo, mini. Thanks. Edit: I read 3.3 does not work on Leopard. But 3.2 does, can anyone confirm this? Would be nice to get it working, instead of using NTFS-3g (it does work, for the record)

    You can use the AppleHDA + ALCinject kexts lying around for the ALC889a.

    Apple is the fuel behind Chinas growth rate title is misleading....

    t0m, Use the jas 10.4.8 install. Edit: (the first ACPI must be enabled in the bios, the last for the IDE/SATA controller, IDE) Update to 10.4.10 using kalway, koolal or what ever it was, I can't remember. Even better, the JAS 10.4.8 with that update. Install the AppleHDA kext, for sound. If you wanna be real picky, install IOATAFamily, AppleVIAATA so everything shows nicely in System Profiler. Laugh an evil laugh. Because everything works as long as you don't use a 8600gt. If you are still not satisfied. Then buy a mac, with Leopard. Thats what I did.

    Update to 10.4.10 PascalW. @CoolNerds. What Disk setup have you got. Your random disk reads are very decent.
  13. Gigabyte GA-P35-DS3

    To answer my own question. Yes. Use all default BIOS options, but change the first option to ACHI in the advanced menu. AND don't use an uphuck ISO. JAS worked first time, and without pain. IDE works, my Drive burns and reads. You don't need a sata DVD drive!
  14. Gigabyte GA-P35-DS3

    I just want to be clear on this, You used an IDE DVD drive to install to a SATA Drive? Thanks.
  15. NForce430 is not currently fully supported. You will need to patch your DVD to install. Presently you may only use 128GB of the drive. I suggest you get an IDE Drive for now. Read more here... http://forum.insanelymac.com/index.php?sho...mp;#entry449625 Peace.
