  1. With the -x flag, safe mode, my PC didn't recognize USB sticks either. You could try booting without that flag. If that won't work you could burn the needed files to a dvd or hook the HDD to another mac temporarily to move the files over. I can't remember if I had ethernet working at the point you are at, but if you do, you could map a network drive to the files.
  2. I already had the Lacie driver installed. Tried replacing the PXHCD file and repairing permissions, still unable to mount drive on USB 3.0 port. Same story if I use Kext Helper and inject.

    The driver is up, that's what we're talking about. There is already another thread for the Lacie drivers, shall we move? http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=236209 I have the same thing goin on as genzai's system 2. When a usb 2.0 device is plugged in it shows up under Hi-Speed and not under the new Super-Speed entry.

    I am a noob, so a preemptive sorry if I didn't give you what you need. I did three ioreg dumps with the command you specified, no drives, flash drive in usb 2.0 port and in usb 3.0 port. DSDT and System Profiler screenshot attached as well. The DSDT is from a guide thread on this forum. Thanks to Kup for his hard work. http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=222761 Edit DSDT.aml didn't make it in. Hosted on my Dropbox here. http://dl.dropbox.com/u/2652566/dsdt.aml?dl=1 No_Drives.rtf USB_2.0.rtf USB_3.0.rtf System_Profiler.tiff

    I installed the new USB 3.0 drivers released by Lacie today. I also have the new Super-Speed entry in the System Profiler. I have the following USB 3.0 HDD dock. http://www.newertech.com/products/voyagers3.php I am able to plug it into a USB 2.0 port and mount a HDD, but if I plug it into the USB 3.0 port I got no action. Tried multiple HDD's and both ports, hot plugging, power cycle etc. I have a 4GB Corsair Flash Voyager GT (USB 2.0) with NTFS partition and an 8GB Corsair Survivor (USB 2.0) with a Mac OS X Extended Journaled partition and they both mounted successfully in the USB 3.0 ports.
  6. I'm just a Hackintosh noob myself, but there isn't too much action on this thread as of late. You shouldn't need -x forever, but I needed it until I got the graphics card working properly. USB 3.0 seems to be working. I installed the new USB 3.0 drivers released by Lacie today. I have a new Superspeed USB device listed in System Profiler under USB. Sounds like it's working for others running motherboards with the NEC chipset. http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=236209 Update: I have the following USB 3.0 HDD dock. http://www.newertech.com/products/voyagers3.php I am able to plug it into a USB 2.0 port and mount a HDD, but if I plug it into the USB 3.0 port I got no action. Tried multiple HDD's. USB 2.0 flash drive mount in USB 3.0 ports.
  7. I had the same issue after upgrading to 10.6.4, different video card though. It came down to an issue with the graphics card. Try and see if you can boot with the following -v -x flags. The first post said -x is needed with single nVidia card. I also needed "GraphicsEnabler=no" Minus the quotes. I know my vid card required me to install the Graphics Update package as well with 10.6.4 update. Which [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] options did you install?

    Introduce yourself.

    Hey Everybody. Was a Windows only user for the better part of two decades. My iPhone 3GS got me started in the Mac world. Up to an iPhone 4 now, 2009 13" MacBook Pro (now the wifey's) and a 2010 Core i5 15" MBP. Looking to convert my desktop rig to Hackintosh. Had moderate success thus far. Made it all the way to post-install but now I'm back at square 1.
  9. SL installation keeps crapping out. I'm using newest version of [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url]. I can get to the bootloader screen, swap in my retail disk of SL and get through the language selection. If I go to disk utility it hangs sometimes, other times it hangs after I partition the hard drive (never finishes un-mounting). I to tried partitioning and format with my MBP and just hit next after language selection, but then my HDD isn't in the list of available installation locations. Do I need to run -v -x graphicsenabler=no for SL install? Any suggestions would be great. I've gotten the installation to work before and have made it to the OS X Desktop, but I'm not so lucky anymore. I messed up with the post installion stuff and had to start over. Update: As I sit here at my desk at the office, I think I have SATA6 plugged into a ESata port in a spare Expansion slot. Could that be my issue? Also, should DVD or HDD be in SATA1?
