  1. upgraded to 10.6.6 from software update ... Everything is OK I only had to reinstall nvidia fermi drivers (there is a new version by the way : Retail_256.01.00f03v5) Cheers
  2. did you try options: -v -x GraphicsEnabler=n cpus=1 arch=i386 busratio=25 It broke geforce 460 GTX native resolution I am back to 1024x768 + no QE/CI everything else is fine. EDIT : Reinstalling nvidia fermi nvidia Retail_256.01.00f03v5.dmg solved the problem
  3. I finally got the whole thing to work with decent performances. Here is a link to my Extra folder + AppleHDA 5,1 speakers working, no SPDIF though Sound1065.zip - 1.6 MB good luck
  4. I finally have an up an running 10.6.5 with decent performances Here is what I did for what it's worth : Installed vanilla (10.6.3 retail DVD)with files and instructions from here : http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=222761 options : -v -x cpus=1 busratio=21 GraphicsEnabler=n Installed 10.6.5 upgrade Installed [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] 2.6.1, userdsdt + hardware kexts reboot upgraded chameleon 2 RC5 build 656 reboot Installed Nvidia drivers Thanks for your help
  5. @ Stofchi Thank you, actually the only thing I got wrong was GraphicsEnabler Yes instead of No so options : -v -x cpus=1 busratio=21 GraphicsEnabler=n arch=i386 was the way to install 10.6.3 + 10.6.5 upgrade + [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] I think I still have a few things to figure out cause booting from HD doesn't work, only boot from boot123 CD with arch=i386 option works yet @ tj_jackson Since nov 16 nvidia has a new driver out and it's supposed to bring compatibility to fermi 100/104 graphic cards I only get a 1024x768x32 as of now but I read at www.tonymacx86.com that some guys have 460 GTX 1Go fully working on their rig so there is hope http://www.tonymacx86.com/viewtopic.php?f=...73&start=10
  6. i'am stuck at the same point ! what's the workaround ? Is there a bootloader that works for P6X58D-E and fermi 100 / 104 graphic cards ? Thanks

  8. Thanks for visiting ... but anyone has a hint ?
  9. Hi everyone ! I am having issues trying to boot Snow Leopard 10.6.3 (10.6.3 retail DVD from store) on my Asus Maximus Formula (bios 1403) + nvidia geforce 8 GTS 640 Package used is the one from below thread's 1st post except new fakesmc + new nullappleintelcpu + removed dsmos as advised http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=186707 Here is what I do : - Install from a restored dmg to usb stick + chameleon 2.0 rc3 or from mounted dmg in snow old snow leo 10.6.1 (both install work !) - Install of chameleon 2.0 rc3 - nothing modified in System/Lybrary/Extensions <==> maybe I am missing something here - Add Extra + themes to / - UUID added to PlatformUUID.kext - gfx string added to com.apple.boot.plist - repair permissions THEN - First + following boot give me a kernel panic no matter what I do ! Can someone running 10.6.3 on the same mobo give me a hint or describe his install procedure and files used I was also wondering if all the procedures around are only for 10.6 + upgrades or does it work for retail 10.6.3 DVD from store ? thanks for your help
  10. Sorry new thread created ! Cheers

    PCEFI v9 Installer Final by Trauma [Updated 19/12/08]

    La mise à jour de EFI 5.2 vers chameleon + boot + dsdt + extra sous 10.5.5 impec tout marchait parfaitement. je remet en place appleintelcpupowermanagement dans /S/L/E/ Je fait la mise à jour vers 10.5.6 Dans extra/extensions : dsmos, applesmbios, ionetworking je supprime appleintelcpupowermanagement et même après plusieurs reboot ça le fait pas !! une pic du freeze au boot apparemment ce n'est pas un kernel panic Les disques s'arrête et plus rien Quelqu'un a une idée de ce qu'il faut faire, ou ce qu'il me manque ? Merci

    PCEFI v9 Installer Final by Trauma [Updated 19/12/08]

    Merci de ta réponse trauma23 mais j'ai encore des questions Pour le fichier /boot + /Extra/Extensions + /DSDT.aml à la racine et le extensions.mkext pas de problème ainsi que pour les strings dans com.apple.boot.plist j'ai pigé le truc ! Mais comme je suis encore en PC EFI 5.2 il faut bien que je mette à jour le bootloader en bas niveau en bootant d'un CD d'install : Quelle sont les commandes exactes ? Je trouve des informations contradictoires dans les divers tutos disponibles. Certains disent que la commande startupfiletool n'est pas utile d'autre l'executent quand même dans leur procédure Je voudrais une liste complète des commandes même si certaines sont inutiles dans ma config actuelle, ça me servira pour une prochaine fresh install d'avoir le topo complet. Merci de ton aide. Temis
