  1. Finder crashing when opening large folders

    Seriously?? No one has any idea or a fix for this?
  2. Thanks for the reply Beerkext'd.. well since I do not use esata, I think hotplugging is of no use to me.. so I'll replace OIF to IOAHCIBlock...kext. However, I think DSDT will be better, do you know what changes to dsdt I have to make? I have an ICH9R controller.
  3. I already have OrangeIconFix.kext, and my drives don't appear as orange icons, they appear as internal hard drive (shiny metal) icons. However you are right, all of my Hard disks, including the OS X one itself, appear as "External" types.. (but its weird how OS X drive, eventhough seen as External in Disk Utility, is grouped with Hard Drives in Finder prefs.) So now I need the IOAHCIBlockStorageInject.kext to fix this? Thanks for your help!! Thanks for the info guys! I'll try that Orwell: I have to try that, my earlier experimenting with fstab didnt quite work, lets see how following your instructions will result.
  4. Beerkex'd: Okay I got the 'unknown' showing the text of my SATA now.. which is ICHR9 .. I just put in AHCIPortInjector.kext in my /E/E/ ..s it now shows ICH9R in that System Profiler section. However, the NTFS drives are still being shown as "CDs, DVDs, and iPods" in Finder Preferences.. The only drives that show as "Hard Drives" are OSX and Time Machine! What's going on?
  5. I've attached a screenshot of the Serial-ATA section in System Profile, is it not normal? Is there something wrong with that? I've always seen Windows and NTFS drives not being under "Hard Drives" in Finder on multiple computers.. Help!!
  6. Well, I gave that a look and it's not that much of a fix for this case. (By the way, I never touched any Finder preferences, everything is default right since Snow Leopard's installation. I did not do anything special for the Windows and System Restore to be shown) Unfortunately, the Windows and the System Partition drives are grouped as "CDs, DVDs and iPods" (and not "Hard Drives").. which I'd rather not have hidden in case I plug in my iPod or insert a CD or DVD. There should be a way to stop Snow Leopard from even mounting select drives on boot.
  7. 10.6.3 Update + 9800GX2 = Black Screen!

    Damn, that's incredible! Source?
  8. Hi all, I have nice installation of Snow Leopard working on my GA-P35-DS3R motherboard, but there's one problem I can't seem to figure out. Whenever I let Finder open my NTFS drive, it works fine.. except for when I open my Music folder (it has a lot of files).. then Finder just stops responding, and I have to relaunch it.. this happens every single time. How do I get rid of this problem? I never had NTFS3G or anything like that installed either.. so I don't know what's causing the problem. I have also scanned the disk for errors in Windows, and it reports that there are no problems with the drive. Help!!
  9. 10.6.3 Update + 9800GX2 = Black Screen!

    Man, someone really needs to find a solution for this!!
  10. andthenIwasabear: That's right, it's an NTFS partition (created by Windows 7 as a boot partition during install).. so any other option? How about /etc/fstab?
  11. Hi all, I just did a near-perfect installation of Snow Leopard 10.6.3 on my GA-X58A-UD3R machine, now however, I have one problem: How can I hide the Windows 7 created "System Reserved" partition from the SL desktop? Don't ask me to reinstall Windows to try and not let that partition be created (i'd rather leave that partition present in SL than to reinstall Windows).. so are there any real solutions to this within SL? There are 2 methods that I have tried with no success: 1) SetFile method: Using the terminal tool SetFile (included when you install Xcode development tools), you can hide a partition by issuing the command: SetFile -a V /Volumes/System Reserved however, it didn't work for me, it gave me an error: No write permission (-61).. and I can't seem to fix that. 2)/etc/fstab method: I don't know how to prevent the drive from loading using this method because the partition does not have a UUID in SL, and the path name has a space in it.. so I don't know how to get it working. If anyone has any ideas of fixes for this, please let me know, much appreciated, thanks!!
  12. GIGABYTE X58A-UD3R compatible?

    Guys this board is practically the same board as the X58A-UD7, no real difference in terms of chipsets.. so those guides should work perfect for you.. check this one out for example: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=199760
  13. Hi all, I installed 10.6.3 and now my system gives me a black screen. I'd rather just go back to 10.6.2 since everything was working fine... i made a time machine backup of the system before i updated..but now how do I revert to 10.6.2?? I don't have the SL installation disc. I have another machine with Leopard installed on it.. can I somehow use it to revert to 10.6.2 by connecting the drives to it or something? Please help me!! Thanks!
  14. Yes the computer does "go to sleep". Fans shut off and power goes down. But when i click the power to revive it.. it simply restarts. I actually got it to work just 30 mins ago, I used SleepEnabler.kext and NullCPUPowerManagement.kext and checked the "Restart when there's a power failure" option in the Energy Savings system preferences... and now it seems to be working fine so far.
