  1. I am still at the point that I was before, but I am very much enjoying my Hackintosh! I haven't been able to fix the sleep/wake problem. Apparetly my G51Jx-A1 is unique with it's sleep/wake function... though I can't see why. The only other thing that (partially) doesn't work is the WiFi adapter. I can read my B+G Mixed WiFi network at home, but can't see any N networks, and also can't see my schools network anywhere (Even in the commons, which is the closest location to the physical router). I'm waiting for 10.6.5 to hopefully fix this problem. As for sleep/wake, I've tried numerous things, including the fixes listed in here (And listed as working with the ASUS G51Jx-X3) and still can't get my computer to wake properally. It will sleep, but I have to do a hard reboot in order to get back into my OS. One more minor thing is the touchpad is about 95% functional (I can't single click, but I can two-finger scroll, as well as scroll with the specified area on the right). Other than this, I am extremely happy with this install.... Thanks everyone for your help! Anyone with more info about the sleep/wake issue please let me know
  2. Completely unrelated to my previous postings, but I have an interesting issue that I haven't been able to fix. It has to do with the clock. I have the right time whenever I boot into OS X. It doesn't ever move fast anymore. However, whenever I boot into Windows AFTER having booted into Mac OS X, the clock is 4 hours ahead. This is solved by simply syncing to Internet time again. This won't happen if I boot into Windows right off the bat, only if I boot OS X first, then reboot into windows. Very frustrating when I've been coding in OSX and then want to game on Windows, lol.... Is anyone else having this problem? Does anyone have a fix? Any help is appreciated
  3. Thank you, that would actually be a great help. I did compile my own DSDT when I first installed OS X and have been using fixes found in this thread and in others. I'll check on the IRC to see who might be able to help me
  4. I'm still having problems putting my laptop to sleep when running MacOS.... I have the DSDT.aml in my /Extra/ folder as well as in my /, but when I try to put the computer to sleep either VIA the Apple menu or by closing the lid, the Keyboard lights stay on, as well as the indicator lights, and I cannot wake the computer up by any means... I have to do a hard shutdown and boot the computer again.. I'm a little confused, I have to say, lol....
  5. Thanks very much for that information! That helped me out a lot! Now i'm down to the Sleep/Wake problem. I've looked into it and tried DSDT fixes from another thread, but I still can't put the laptop to sleep either with the command or by closing the lid. I'm a little confused as to how to accomplish this :/ You guys have been a great help! I'll be sure to post all of my progress in my own "Triple Boot Project" thread.
  6. Actually I figured that one out! lol.... the problem was with voodoohdahelper, but it's solved now... Still having the problem with the function keys though...
  7. An update from my attempts at the WiFi problem: Changing my router to a B/G Mixed mode allows the internal WiFi to connect perfectly fine. I'm still having trouble at school however; I still can't see ANY networks. I agree that there seems to be a problem with how the driver is interacting with the hardware. On another note entirely, I've been a little shotty with the keyboard problem... I can't seem to figure out how to get the FN button features working properly. There also seems to be a problem with how the keyboard interacts with the OS. Sometimes the Windows key acts as COMMAND key, whereas other times it changes to ALT. Any comments on this issue are welcomed and appreciated Third minor issue, I can't seem to get VoodooHDA to hold my settings for next login. I'm getting annoying feedback from the mic every time I log into Mac OS X and have to turn down the Input Gain every time, lol.. I've fixed this before but I can't remember how...
  8. How do I determine what chipset my Wifi card is? I'm not sure where the physical card is in my laptop... Also, The Wifi DOES function, but only on WPA, WEP, or Open networks.. I can see and connect to WPA2, but there is no internet connection. I also can't see any of the public networks at my school. This is minuscule compared to getting the WiFi functioning at home though. I'm interested on this "branding" you're talking about?
  9. I tried the fix that you suggested for switching the ID of my Wifi adapter, but nothing changed. I still can't connect to my WPA2 network. I know there's still something wrong with the adapter because I can't see any of the networks in my school. I would imagine that if it was working properally I would be able to see and connect to these networks. I also tried switching to the 64bit Kernel and nothing changed. Still can't get an IP address from my network. Any further help is appreciated.
  10. This did fix the issue with my OS X wifi but I can't justify changing the protocols on my router. My machine would be the only one that wasn't affected by the change, and with 8+ devices connect to my home network ALONE, it seems to be to be a bit of a hassle just so I can not have a 1" dongle poking out the side of my pc. TBH it's good to know that the wifi DOES work, and I'm hoping they'll fix the issues sometime soon. (I would hope that OS X supports WPA2-PSK)
  11. I have attempted to get my wifi adapter working a number of times. this is the result of kextstat: 72 0 0x81386000 0xcc000 0xcb000 com.apple.driver.AirPort.Atheros21 (424.14.5) <71 69 14 7 5 4 3 1> OS X even recognizes an AirPort device, but can't see or connect to any networks at my school. At home, OS X recognizes my home network, and even connects but cannot access the internet (Says there is no assigned IP address.) I have attempted many things, including manually assigning the IP addresses, re-installing the drivers, and changing from a 32bit boot to the 64bit.. Incidentally, I am running a 32bit kernel, and when I tried to boot in 64bit previously, I get a kernel panic from the REALTEK drivers I have installed for a USB Dongle I've been using for WiFi. I can think of a few options, like removing the REALTEK drive that was causing panic, but I'm not sure how to do that! I have to say I'm a little jealous of those who have already got a fully functoning Hackintosh. Any help is appreciated!

    lol I agree 100%. I'm pretty witty when it comes to Windows problem solving, but as soon as I decided to get into Mac OS X it's a whole different ball game! By the way, I figured out how to restore my internal HDD using Disk Utility and am currently configuring the installation. I appreciate all your help and I'll let you know how things go

    Wow... lol... I feel like a big dummy to be honest. I should have realized that for one HDAController to work, the other would have to NOT be there.... Alright, I'm going to debug my internal installation and try this all again... I may have to reinstall completely in order to do it right, but at this point I just want it to be done correctly...

    Thank you for specifying... I seem to be running into some more errors. I believe this stems from something else, (I've been attempting to get the Atheros 9285 WiFi card working) and I now have kernel panics talking about a kext called "AppleHDAController". I didn't realize that this was happening... so I'm still in the debugging stage. How would I restore my internal HDD's install from the External one? (Keep in mind the external is GUID and the internal is MBR.) I used Nawcom's modified bootCD to enable me to install on MBR... This is preferable because all of my backups (Windows, Linux, ETC.) are on MBR and previously problems were caused by trying to install on GUID....

    In order to delete the Kernel Flag "arch=i386" should I just remove that literal part? Or the entire thing? Example: <key>Kernel</key> <string>mach_kernel</string> <key>Timeout</key> <string>2</string> <key>Kernel Flags</key> <string>arch=i386</string> <key>GraphicsEnabler</key> <string>Yes</string> To be replaced with: <key>Kernel</key> <string>mach_kernel</string> <key>Timeout</key> <string>2</string> <key>GraphicsEnabler</key> <string>Yes</string>
