  1. It worked. You are a king. Thanks so much! This has been pissing me off all day.
  2. Hi everyone. I've been having a problem with getting my network working on my Hackintosh setup. MB: GA-X58A-UD5 Video Card: Nvidia GTX 770 Processor: Intel Core i7 950 Dual boot with Windows 7 (separate SSD hard drives) A little background--I had Snow Leopard running on this machine for years, but I bought a new graphics card yesterday and it wasn't compatible with SL, so I took the plunge and upgraded to Mavericks with a clean install. The install went fine, and when I did my first boot into Mavericks the audio wasn't working but the ethernet connection was (my internet is hard-wired). It is when I use [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] that I get a problem. I used the proper DSDT file for my motherboard, and I went through the settings and chose what I believe are the right drivers etc, but when [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] is done doing its thing and I reboot, the audio works but the network connection doesn't work anymore. Could anyone tell me why this would be the case? I've done a clean install a few different times and ran [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] immediately afterwards--sometimes trying no network driver, and other times using each of the two Realtek drivers in the provided options. Could it be another setting that I am choosing that is causing my Ethernet to {censored} out? Below is a screencap of the options I choose for [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url], with the Network driver being the one I've been changing. I'm at a bit of a loss, so any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
  3. I have had a hackintosh (Intel Core i7 950, GIGABYTE GA-X58A-UD5 rev 2.0) running Snow Leopard for a couple of years now with no problems until just recently. I originally initiated the install process by using a Kakewalk CD and a Snow Leopard installation DVD. Just last week my OS X partition wouldn't boot, so after some attempts at troubleshooting I figured I'd just re-install the OS from scratch. The problem was that I could no longer boot my hackintosh into anything besides Windows. My Kakewalk CD no longer worked, and any USB installer that I made (Kakewalk, ######, etc) wouldn't boot either. As a last resort I removed the SSD from my hackintosh that used to have OS X on it, put it into one of those USB HD docking stations, formatted it using Disk Utility (GUID partition table) and cloned my Macbook Pro system drive onto it (Mountain Lion). I restarted my Macbook Pro, booted into the newly cloned SSD and ran ###### using a DSDT that I downloaded from tonymacx86's DSDT database. I know that this is an unorthodox way of making a hackintosh, but this was the only way I could think of to get OS X onto seemingly unbootable computer. Once I plugged my SSD back into my hackintosh it booted up and seemed to work perfectly, but on some (but not all) subsequent startup login screens I get a kernel panic (shown in the attached picture). Any idea as to what the issue is? I'm sure that due to my installation process it could be a number of things, but I was hoping that the screenshot would at least begin to steer me in the right direction. Thanks in advance!
