  1. Lion GM Facetime error

    I tried deleting the Facetime app (you have to do it from Terminal because it's a protected app). Then I reinstalled the Essentials.pkg which includes Facetime. Still no luck.
  2. DSDT Auto-Patcher

    Virgin DSDT for Lenovo m90p if someone knows how to edit it. http://dl.dropbox.com/u/17057/Lenovo%20m90p%20DSDT.dsl
  3. For USB keyboard and mouse support when you experience these errors, usually plugging in a USB hub and plugging the mouse and keyboard into the hub will resolve the issue. Ultimately, you need to edit the DSDT's USB devices to get a more permanent fix.
  4. Most people probably don't even read your post with a useless subject like you used.
  5. Broken Boot record

    Is your disk partitioned with MBR or GPT? For GPT, the best thing to do is get Chameleon, boot using the DVD, and then run Chameleon.
  6. Now that I am using the Chameleon bootloader against a GUID partitioned drive with EFI installed, fdisk no longer works to manipulate the active partition. Have 4 partitions, and the first one is set as Active in the Darwin bootloader. However, that is my "safe" mode partition and I actually am using disk0s3 as my real install. Is there any way to set which partition is active for GUID partitioned drives? fdisk -e /dev/rdisk0 just shows me a single GPT partition and then 3 unknown partitions.
  7. Darwin Bootloader FAQ

    In /Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration you should edit the com.apple.Boot.plist file. There is an option in the file for Timeout. Just change the value between the <string> and </string> tags to how many seconds you want to wait.
  8. ICH6M unable to boot DVD

    Easiest solution is to buy a cheap USB DVD drive and use that for the installation.
  9. The instructions are good but I would recommend you do not delete the existing entries in the string. Just add your device ID. For example, if your device ID is 0191 (NVIDIA Vendor ID is 10de) then do the following: Existing <string>0x011010de&0xfff8ffff 0x017910de 0x018010de&0xfff8ffff 0x018910de 0x020010de&0xfff8ffff</string> New <string>0x019110de 0x011010de&0xfff8ffff 0x017910de 0x018010de&0xfff8ffff 0x018910de 0x020010de&0xfff8ffff</string>
  10. ICH8 Patch with ACPI: System State [S0 S3 S4 S5]

    Same for me on the HP dc7700. Kalyway 10.5.2 installed fine with the vanilla kernel and the Azalia patch (it's a Realtek ALC262 audio codec). Make sure you uncheck the USB fix patch (PCGen) as this is unnecessary and actually causes some problems. The Azalia package I used is here. I am not using the onboard video but have used both a 7900 GT 512MB (with the ROM patch at NVinject) and an 8800 GTX. Both with NVinject 0.2.1 work perfectly.
  11. I had this issue and resolved it by installed without the PCGen "USB Fix" patch in the optional packages. As an alternative, you probably can delete the PCGen kext from the /System/Library/Extensions/AppleUSB.kext/Content/Plugins (or something like that). There is also a usbfix package in another thread (just search for it) that allegedly fixes the problem, but I tried it and found that it actually broke all my USB support. My guess is the appropriate fix will depends on the chipset providing USB support. I have an DP dc7700 which has the Intel chipset.
  12. What network cards work?

    I would recommend anyone looking to buy a NIC that has supported drivers to check the drivers available from http://www.small-tree.com/ They offer drivers for some of the Intel NIC chipsets (not the 82566DM, if you are wondering) but could help you find the right add-on NIC. I would not recommend you buy one of their NICs as they are specifically designed to go into Mac hardware, so your mileage may vary. Some are only for PowerPC machines anyway.
  13. Problem installing on HP dc7700p

    I used a USB DVD drive and was able to install. Using a DVD drive connected to the internal SATA controller always gave me the waiting for root device message.
  14. I suspect that you won't see support for the Intel wireless 3945abg adapter. That's why I went ahead and replaced it with the Thinkpad 802.11abg mini PCI adapter. It's easy, just lift the keyboard and the Intel adapter is in a mini PCI slot. Take it out and pop the new one in. I haven't seen any functionality missing between the two anyway.
  15. I was only able to get the ThinkPad a/b/g Wireless adapter working after installing the EFI patches.
