  1. Disclaimer: This is my app, not sure about the rules on promotional threads on InsanelyMac. I don't normally post threads about my own stuff, but I thought this would be pretty useful to the Hackintosh community. InsanelyMac & TonyMacx86 have helped me so much. So I went from W7 (which had a multitude of great apps for dealing with more than one monitor like Ultramon) to an OS X Lion Hackintosh, which I loved infinitely more but apparently didn't work too well out of the box with a multiple monitor setup. A bit about my setup for anyone who cares: Mobo: ASUS P6T CPU: i7 920 GPU: GTX 470 SLI (ugh, huge headache not knowing how to do EFI strings) RAM: 6GB OCZ Gold Monitors: 2x 24" Samsung SyncMasters. =========================== Here's my attempt at dealing with the multiple monitor problem: Multimon. (<- Click to view in App Store) Features: • Multiple Menu Bars ⁃ Should work for any number of monitors, the max I was able to test up to was 3 though. (Hackintoshers with 9 monitor setups, please let me know ). • Advanced Window Management ⁃ You're more productive with another monitor but nobody wants to drag windows left and right. Easily send a window to any of your monitors via a drop down or a hotkey. Maximize or minimize too! • Automatic Window Resizing ⁃ A lot of us hackintoshers don't have the luxury of matching dual cinema displays . This'll automatically resize windows that are too large onto smaller monitors. • Hotkeys ⁃ Pretty customizable hotkeys for a bunch of the features listed above as well as quickly hiding all menu bars, etc. So yup, that's it. You can tweet me for support / feedback at @delveapps. Chat with me about hackintosh / apps / design / tech / anything at @aaronykng . Hope you guys find it useful. Look forward to hearing what you guys think.
  2. Hi all, just confirming this almost completely worked with my ASUS P6T. Not sure if that's bad or good, are there things I should do to ensure compatability? I've had almost zero problems so far. The only things that I had to fix were: Replace the existing AppleHDA with Marionez’ AppleHDA to get sound working. Everything else was working, but I couldn't login to the App Store so I added: <key>EthernetBuiltIn</key> <string>Yes</string> to my boot plist and everything was working 100%. I also installed with the DSDT.aml I found from here: http://trick77.com/2009/10/12/asus-p6t-64-bit-osx86/ Specs: i7 920 C0 ASUS P6T NVIDIA GTX 470
  3. UL30VT on 10.6.6

    So I just about had everything working, except for the Ethernet and the Audio. I still have no clue how to get those two working, but here is what I did to get wireless, native resolution, battery, etc working. iAtkos S3 10.6.3 I installed this with the defaults, plus the Apple PS2 controller and Battery. I used the 10.6.6 combo updater, then before restarting used [url=&quot;http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/&quot;]#####[/url], [url=&quot;http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/&quot;]#####[/url]. Reboot. Then I got the Atheros kext from kexts.com and the X3100 kext from elsewhere on this forum. Install, reboot. THis gave me everything but ethernet and sound. Anyone have any advice?
  4. Hi all, I wrote a guide for my blog hoping to be able to copy it here. Unfortunately it was all in HTML and not BB Code so it isn't easy for me to change all the tags. I don't know if anyone will find this useful, but this was so frustrating for me, I felt I HAD to post this up in case anyone had similar problems. http://www.theincarna.com/298/hackintosh-1...n-secondary-hdd I'll slowly convert it over the next few days when I'm not busy, I hope it's helpful in its' current state.
