    10.4.9 - Firewire

    Sorry to bump such an old thread. I have a perfectly working hackintosh (EP35-DS3L with F5 BIOS), Leopard retail installation (weaksauce12's guide). Everything works perfectly, but Firewire. I've tried two different PCI cards (both with the same onboard chip, VIA something) and at least one of them is guaranteed to work fine with OSX (I had it attached to an older hackintosh). Everytime I attach a device, I get the same "Unknown device" problem. I've tried external drives, DV players, etc. Nothing works. I even tried the solution posted here that is reported to help with the Firewire issue aswell, but didn't work. I've seen several post related to this issue, but there are no answers to this specific problem. If somebody can give some words of advice, they will be greatly appreciated. Best regards!

    Installing pc_efi on ToH?

    You may not see any difference at all. It is up to you, but if it ain't broken, don't fixit, remeber? You may want to wait and do it when you need to do a clean install.

    Installing pc_efi on ToH?

    Yes, you can add EFI to your current installation. You don't need to do anything special, just follow any of the guides available in the forum to install it as if it were on a virgin partition. And you're right, universal 9.2.0 kernel requires EFI, but I'm not quite sure if it will improve your boot times (unless you have the video blackout issue). It will allow you to use EFI strings and other neat things, though. BTW, you posted at the wrong forum
  4. Really? Have you read the reviews at Amazon? They're tough. Maxtor drives have always been quite inconsistent for me, avoid them if you can.

    Audio Driver - Sigmatel 9220

    There is no such file in Leopard (the guide was made for Tiger). Use Extensions.mkext instead: sudo rm -rf /System/Library/Extensions.mkext But in Leopard that is not even necessary. It will rebuild the cache automatically upon restart.

    Reproductor de DVD

  7. Thank you all for your responses. I'll be getting the computer in the next weeks, and after reading your opinions I'm slowly moving towards the iMac, since it seems to be able to do what I need it to do, and it gives me a better price/value ratio. With the remaining money I should be able to get a Wacom tablet, something that will save me lots of time (and paper) when sketching and prototyping Now that Apple just updated MacBooks and MacBooks Pro, do you guys think that the iMac will be the next? If so, when? Should I wait?

    iTunes 7.6.1 Released

    It does show up here. Downloading now.
  11. I whish I could get those prices From Apple Store México: 24" iMac, 2.8ghz, 2600Pro: $29,381.99 MX (USD $2,671) Mac Pro (single quad) : $30,362.00 MX (USD $2,760) I actually meant the 2.8 Ghz iMac, these figures will give you the idea. EDIT: I was browsing some local stores, and I found what looks like a good deal. The local Apple reseller has the earlier stock Mac Pro (2 x 2.66 dual core, 1GB, 7300 GT) at merely 1900. That's more than one thousand bucks less than the new one, and it actually would be cheaper than a 2.4 Ghz 24" iMac. What do you guys think?
