  1. Install on Ibm/Lenovo M57e 6086 A2U

    I'm trying to get SL on my Lenovo M55 (extremely similar specs) but cannot get past the "searching for device with UUID..." thing. Any advice on how to set up the DSDT properly? Once I get the thing to boot then I'm golden, I'm sure...
  2. Generic USB2.0 (EHCI) Driver

Except for USB." i'm running 10.4.8 on an AMD (Athlon) 64 1800+ on an MSI K8 board with an FX5200 as well. your system sounds extremely similar to mine, all i can suggest (to abg, at least) is to try an NEC-based PCI USB 2.0 card. worked for me. to mysticus, i have no experience with intel-based usb, so your comments are welcome. all i'm sayin' is simply that an NEC-based USB 2.0 card worked for me, when absolutely EVERYTHING else did not. ;-) and as far as my experience with VIA probs, it's not just usb, it's everything. as an audio guy, all research i've run into suggests that via-based chipsets are globally problematic - has something to do with the way they handle pci - big latency probs, etc. good luck, all, and keep the posts coming.
  3. Generic USB2.0 (EHCI) Driver

    to all having problems with usb 2.0 on hackintosh... the only resolution i have found, or at least the most effective one, and the least painful one, was to purchase a NON-VIA chipset usb card. this applies to both pci and pcmcia on laptops. many usb sets on many mobos are of the VIA variety, and they're {censored}. not to mention osx on x86 is not friendly to it. by purchasing an $18.99 NEC-based usb 2.0 card, my 10.4.8 install immediately offered me usb 2.0. stable. i would imagine for any laptop users finding a pcmcia card with a similar (non-via) chipset, that this may be an effective solution as well. caveat: at first, i disabled the onboard usb and booted up osx. osx immediately recognized the 2.0 card and i had good usb 1.1 and 2.0 out of that card, but all the sudden i had no keyboard. somehow the ps/2 keyboard is related to the onboard usb. i re-enabled onboard usb and after a reboot, i got my keyboard back, and now i have good, stable usb 2.0 out of the NEC-based pci card, and i have usb 1.1 only out of the onboard jacks. plus my ps/2 keyboard, of course. a $20 solution. yes, took a little cash, but i now have absolutely everything working the way it should. and i didn't have to edit any files, etc. sampacc
  4. USB 2.0 Not Working (but 1.1 is)

    i cannot mount 2.0 devices in terminal. outputs in dmesg are meaningless (no different - don't recognize anything, despite system profiler "seeing" the 2.0 devices). i am going to rebuild the entire shabang in the next day or two, and do the 8.8.1 orByte/BugsBunny patches right away and see what happens. whew... an aside - i was able to get parallels to install on amd through a hack and that was encouraging. so i move on, blah blah blah... the orByte thread on the USB2.0 issue is interesting - long, but it looks like i'm not alone. originally i thought my issue was different from the orByte/BugsBunny thing - i think now that they're all related. if i can't get USB2.0 on my board for now, so be it. somebody will eventually figure it out. and despite the efforts, GREAT efforts, of orByte, my board still won't hunt. so it's workarounds for now until somebody gets sick of it enough to truly fix it for real, and for good. thank you to all who have responded with at least some consideration. we move on.
  5. USB 2.0 Not Working (but 1.1 is)

    i have not tried that - what is the command - umount [device] or something - or maybe i'm getting my bsd and linux mixed up... i CANNOT mount anything usb 2.0 directly (plugged into port on mobo), including pendrive, ipod, ext hard drive with sata controller, or ext hard drive with ide controller. i can SEE anything that's plugged into those ports in system profiler, but if it's one of the 2.0 devices, they'll show up in system profiler, but not mount, even through disk utility (they show up in sys prof but NOT diskutil). i CAN mount any of those 2.0 devices if i plug them into my 1.1 hub first. i assume osx sees a 1.1 hub and says, "you're ok" and any 2.0 devices plugged into that hub are "slowed down" to a 1.1 speed which osx can then mount, albeit slow. this is the only way i can sync my ipod.
  6. USB 2.0 Not Working (but 1.1 is)

    Way ahead of you. ;-) Tried it. Even tried reformat and reinstalling with different BIOS settings ("Legacy Support Enabled/Disabled," etc.).
  7. USB 2.0 Not Working (but 1.1 is)

    Hmmm... I tried updating (using JaS patched combo) to 10.4.9 and I got nothing but kernel panics. Wouldn't boot even in safe mode. So I'm back to a healthy 10.4.8. I downloaded the Apple Dev IOUSBFamily.kext for 10.4.8, which is 2.6.1, which corresponds to the OrByte 2.6.1a. I do not have an AppleUSBEHCI.kext in there. I have an OHCI and a UHCI, but no EHCI, other than the PCGenEHCI which comes from the OrByte installer. Very weird. Same board. Oh, and the "Jmicron" thing is my mini USB2.0 portable hard drive - I left it in there to show that the Sys Prof does see the drive, just can't mount it. The stuff above there is the actual High-Speed (2.0) bus, which it also sees, but can't do anything with. Thanks for the tips.
  8. USB 2.0 Not Working (but 1.1 is)

    forgot to mention, bibendum has a good point, but i did have a pci usb2.0 card in for a while, but it was buggy, especially in osx. the usb2.0 in question - the usb i have now - is onboard the msi 6702 mobo. that pci card was buggy in both my g4/500 and my amd hackintosh (would make the g4 freeze up and corrupt my ext drives). apparently not a friendly chipset. oh, and usb2.0 didn't work in the amd hackintosh with that card either. yeeeesh... thanks, you guys, for at least giving your two cents. just need more like two bits. ;-)
  9. USB 2.0 Not Working (but 1.1 is)

    As per my original post, I already tried that. That OrByte fix is for a different USB issue. Or at least different symptoms. OrByte's doesn't have any reference to my problem, the "USBx: family specific matching fails" message. Thanks for trying, tho. And as far as Bibendum's comment, I'm not sure that's the case, as, also per my original post, my System Profiler sees not only a USB Hi-speed bus, but also the attached (but not mounted) USB hard drive. There has to be a simple fix for this. So damn close...
  10. If anyone can help, this would be greatly appreciated - OrByte or otherwise. I have a super-clean install running spectacularly - Athlon64 with NV FX5200 Core Graphics and Quartz Extreme, good audio, EVERYTHING works EXCEPT: USB 2.0. USB1.1 works fine. But I cannot attach my USB2.0 devices (hard drive, pendrive, iPod) directly - strangely, they will show up in SysProfiler but not Disk Util (and won't mount). Even stranger, my crappy workaround is I attach the 2.0 devices to my 1.1 HUB and THEN they mount, but move only at 1.1 speed. What I have done/tried: I installed the official 10.4.8 Apple Dev USB fix per OrByte's PCGenUSBEHCI-2.6.1a fix, no change. Continued on and finished installing OrByte's PCGenUSBEHCI-2.6.1a (the actual kext), no change. Still no USB2.0, still getting following message: As I look at verbose output upon bootup and such, I see the same thing: "family specific matching fails". When I search these forums with those terms and anything else like "USB 2.0 not working" I get nothing. So forgive me if this question has already been answered and I just didn't find it...

  12. Logic pro 7 & OSX86 10.4.8

    I am running Logic 7.1 on an AMD Athlon64. So, to answer your question, yes, you can run 7.1. Probably able to run 7.0 under Rosetta, but who would want to? If you own 7.0, get the UniBin upgrade and it will run fine on your AMD.
  13. S-Video Out on a GeForce MX440

    Dude/Dudette, I can't even get S-Video Out to work on that card in WINDOWS. I have the MSI version of the same card. Getting NVidia stuff to work in OSX86 is a {censored}-shoot at best - I'd forget S-Video. Sorry.
  14. Booting from Disk with Grub Fails

    Try installing the 10.4.4 Login Window, an extra in the JaS 10.4.8 installer. May help.
  15. AppleHDA Solution - Work in progress

    From one Dave to another, Dave, and with great respect, your tutorial is very helpful and highly recommended for anyone who CAN GET SOUND IN LINUX. I mean, the caveat to your tutorial should be that the whole "grab your codec#0" thing only works if you have working sound in linux. catting and grepping, etc., with a non-working or un-recognized card only freezes up the terminal. and don't bother trying to chmod the codec and force it onto a pendrive - the file "doesn't exist." The only thing I can suggest for Realtek HD probs is to go to Realtek's site, download the linux source and do these steps: 1.) read the README file, and see if your chip/codec is supported. For instance, the 861 IS, the 862 is NOT. And they ARE different. Believe me, I've tried otherwise. If you're lucky enough to be on the list, then 2.) compile it for your respective linux distro. If you still don't have sound in linux, you may have luck at that point 3.) going to ALSA and applying the latest patch for Azalias. That has worked for hundreds of Ubuntu users. THEN, if you've done everything right, you should have sound in linux, and can 4.) do a codec dump. Use that to run through Taruga's HDA patcher and you should be good to go. It sucks, people, that it's this difficult, but the whole HD Audio thing is still sort of green after years of the AC97 standard. Honestly, if you don't mind running your audio through a Griffin iMic, and you don't have the patience to do the little research it takes to get your Realtek running, that may be your best option at this point until further notice. Cheers, Dave
