  1. Just update this machine to 10.6.4 with iTunes 10.0.1 and everything is working as expected.
  2. You got a problem with me?
  3. I have the same problem with 8 GB ram. No its the 64bit kernel No, it will work with the correct configurations. It just still hasn't been tested by me
  4. Try booting into 32bit mode "-arch=i386" at boot see if that lets you boot up As for the 8800GT... It uses a different GPU so you might have to re-build the DSDT.aml The code below is for an 8800GT 512 with 2 DVI Device (PEGP) { Name (_ADR, 0x00010000) //<-- This is the location on the PCI bus (important) Method (_STA, 0, NotSerialized) { Return (0x0F) } Method (_PRW, 0, NotSerialized) { Return (Package (0x02) { 0x09, 0x05 }) } Device (GFX1) { Name (_ADR, Zero) Name (_SUN, 0x0B) Method (_PRW, 0, NotSerialized) { Return (Package (0x02) { 0x0B, 0x04 }) } Method (_DSM, 4, NotSerialized) { Store (Package (0x16) { "@0,compatible", Buffer (0x0B) { "NVDA,NVMac" }, "@0,device_type", Buffer (0x08) { "display" }, "@0,name", Buffer (0x0F) { "NVDA,Display-A" }, "@1,compatible", Buffer (0x0B) { "NVDA,NVMac" }, "@1,device_type", Buffer (0x08) { "display" }, "@1,name", Buffer (0x0F) { "NVDA,Display-B" }, "NVCAP", //<-- This denotes the ports in the card (not as important) Buffer (0x18) { /* 0000 */ 0x04, 0x00, 0x00, 0x00, 0x00, 0x00, 0x03, 0x00, /* 0008 */ 0x0C, 0x00, 0x00, 0x00, 0x00, 0x00, 0x00, 0x07, /* 0010 */ 0x00, 0x00, 0x00, 0x00 }, "VRAM,totalsize", //<-- How much RAM you have (important) Buffer (0x04) { 0x00, 0x00, 0x00, 0x20 }, "device_type", Buffer (0x0D) { "NVDA,GeForce" }, "model", Buffer (0x17) { "NVIDIA Geforce 8800 GT" }, "rom-revision", Buffer (0x06) { "3173a" } }, Local0) DTGP (Arg0, Arg1, Arg2, Arg3, RefOf (Local0)) Return (Local0) } } } Bonjour is working if you can see other Mac computers in finder.
  5. What BIOS revision you running? Is this a PCI/PCIe ethernet card or onboard? Are you filtering MAC addresses on your router? - Reset router config? The system profilier is reading from DSDT.aml you'll need to edit that to change the name of your card. Its only cosmetic though. Not really worth the trouble.
  6. Prepare your thumb drive using the following guide: http://lifehacker.com/5351485/how-to-build...start-to-finish Only proceed to the step before all the Terminal {censored}. Run SnowBootLoader on the finished USB drive Copy the attached Extra folder to the USB drive Copy the rest of the attached files to the USB drive Install OS X 10.6 Boot from the USB drive selecting to boot from the local HDD after install Use Kext Utility to install VoodooHDA.kext to /System/Library/Extensions (Drag VoodooHDA.kext onto KextUtility) Use AppleHDAPatcher v1.20 and alc888.txt to patch AppleHDA (Drag alc888.txt onto AppleHDAPatcher) Run AboutThisMac fix (This will show the correct CPU/RAM) Run SnowBootLoader on local HDD Copy the CONTENTS of Extra folder from USB drive to /Extra Open Terminal and paste: sudo defaults write com.apple.loginwindow LoginHook /Extra/bonjour/ifconfig.command Go into Energy Saver and set the computer to never sleep. - I didn't bother testing sleep. Update to 10.6.2 You should now have a full 64bit working OS with Sound/LAN and Bonjour working I have a nVidia GeForce 9600 GT. I think this will only work with nVidia cards. - You have to edit the DSDT if you want to change the name. I have patched DSDT.aml for use with F6 bios - I have also added to DSDT.aml a few fixes for LAN and setup the HDD to show up as internal - You can edit /Extra/smbios.plist to match your system info.

  7. Boot Camp on Hackintosh...

    Boot Camp is for Apple hardware only. Your PC already has the ability to run Windows natively.
