  1. Ive just done the update and I now have no sound, can I ask how you did the audio roll back? Thanks
  2. Dual Cards, only one is working?

    Hi all, I finally have everything working on my hackintosh, apart from the full capabilities of my graphics cards. I am able to use the primary card, on DVI but not the VGA. When OSX is loading I get the grey loading screen on both displays, but as soon as I get into the OS I am back to a single screen. I have GraphicsEnabler set to True, and using OSX86Tools 1.0.1 I have been able to enable Quartz GL I also have two graphics cards in my system, both are the same card, and work fine under Windows 7 64bit (32bit doesnt support the dual cards) The cards, I have read, arent supported but seem to be working to some extent for me, they are both ATI Radeon HD 4350. In the system information, it is showing the cards in slot-2 and slot-1 but it is showing one as ATI Radeon 4300 Series and the other as ATI Radeon Mobility Series It claims the drivers are installed for both, and sees them both as displays. So I guess there are two options here, I would like to either get the DVI and VGA working on one card, or get both cards working on their DVI ports, both cards working on both DVI and VGA would be awesome, but baby steps has got me this far. System details: OSX: Snow Leopard 10.6.5 CPU: 3.08Ghz Intel i7 RAM: 12GB Thanks for any help you can provide.
  3. Hi all, Ive finally got a new HDD and Ive got my install of OSX 10.6.5 working (except the sound, but thats no biggy) Is there anyway for me to create a backup/snap shot of the current system, in case I screw it up again? As its taken me a few hours to get it working properly. Thanks
  4. I am installing OSX atm, and Im going to be triple booting with win7 and ubuntu. Will win7 and ubuntu be ok with sata set AHCI? or will I need to change this everytime I boot dependant on the OS I want to use? Thanks

  7. I have been trying for a few weeks to get OSX installed on one of my spare hard drives no to avail. You can see the spec of the machine in my signature, the only difference is I am using a 500GB WD HD instead of the 2TB WD HD that I use to run Win7 on. I have created a bootable USB Pen (16GB ScanDisk Cruzer Blade) and also tried installing using an [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] CD. I have tried removing all the memory apart from 4GB I have remove everything from the machine except the bare essentials for installation too. Issues so far: USB KEY: This boots great, starts doing its thing, it shows the Apple loading screen, then panic and tells me I need to restart the machine. I have tried this in all the USB ports same issue, I even booted into [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] then ran the USB from there, same issue. Using [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] and my retail DVD of Snow Leopard 10.6.3 Using [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] I can get different results all accumulating in not installing. If I do a straight install straight from [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] I get the Apple loading screen and then after a few mins it freezes and shows me a not entry sign. If I run it in safemode or verbose mode I get different errors (cant remember which produces what) First error is: still waiting for root device Second error is: ACPI table not found: DSDT.aml No DSDT found, using 0 a uid value. Using PCI-Root-UID value: 0 Note: these dont happen at the same time. I have a VirtuaBox of OSX that I used to create the USB pen drive, but this is from a cracked version of OSX I aquired online. I have tried to use [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] ISO and the retail ISOs to install in virtuabox but I just get a plain grey screen, I think it is something to do with virtuabox's setup, as I get the same screen if I dont change the SATA to the AHCI A few more details on my setup, all HardDrives are SATA, the 1TB I believe is SATA 1 (unlike the 2TB which is SATA 3 Gb/s) I am also installing from a SATA DVD Writer (Samsung TS-H653G DVD-RW SATA) I have read online some where that it could be because Im using SATA, BUT! my MOBO doesnt have IDE, so I dont know what to do with that info. I am starting to wonder if either Im doing something wrong, or my spec is too new? Any help on this well be great
