  1. Hi Im having a problem with the internet, it frequently is slow and fails to connect to websites. However it does work, as begrudgingly as that may be. Is there anyway I can solve this? Perhaps a new network card? Also the driver for my cd drive didnt work. Is it because I am on IDE. I was able to install the sl through an old dsdt that I had burnt previously. However, the dvd drive still does not work even now in the OS. All help is deeply appreciated. This problem is really keeping me from spending any significant amount of time on this partition.
  2. Hello all, I've had a good experience so far with a few months on a hackintosh. however One hiccup that still seems to plague my system is the fact that it can be slow to connect or fail to connect to websites. this happens moderately frequently and when trying to meet deadlines it can be kind of nerve-racking. Any suggestions? I have a Asus p6t deluxe v2 board. I'm using the following guide. and as such my DSDT is determined by that. Currently my DVD drive doesnt work (im assuming its because I'm still using IDE). Either way does anyone think I need a particular network card to solve this problem? if so which one. Otherwise, is there perhaps another solution to my problem? Thanks!
  3. Hello, Im getting a checksum error, I have the IDE DVD drive in slave. I burned the latest version of the distro. specs: Asus p6t Deluxe v2 i7920 nvidia gtx 285 Ive done this before actually and I forget how it was resolved. Unfortunately either this or another site has deleted their old messages. Hopefully someone can answer this simple question. Believe me, ive scoured the internet for an answer and have yet to find one. many thanks!
  4. neil43, sorry about that, I thought I had heard that they solved the problem. Regarding what I am using and my install configuration, I forget what I had used. How can I identify it? Noam AA, Thanks for the advice Noam AA, what command should I use? Is there a link I should know about? Thanks! Additionally, I have tried reinstalling a bunch of times.
  5. Hello there, I have a problem wherein Parallels isn't recognizing that Hardware virtualization has been enabled. Im running an i7 920 on a p6t deluxe v2 and to the extent of my knowledge it is enabled. Not only that, I never had this problem in SL. Is there a problem within Lion somewhere that needs to be fixed? Thanks! secondary issue: When I tell the bootloader not to load off the cache, I receive the error " still waiting for hard drive", even though with the cache on it works fine. Im assuming this is a problem and as such I'd like to fix it. Any suggestions are welcome. Thanks!
  6. I redid a kextstat just to see what was running. now HDAenabler and appleHDAcontroller are running. In addition, AudioAUUC and AppleAVBAudio. could this be related to the problem?

  8. OK so i know to NEVER do a CMOS reset because one time I SL put the HHDs to sleep and i winded up having to REINSTALL my BIOS, it was the weirdest thing. Either way, I know never to let the computer go to sleep, is there any other way the computer would go to sleep? anyway i installed lspci and ran it in terminal (i was guessing thats what i should do being that I didnt see any .app file anywhere related to lscpi after installation) here are the results.

  9. Ok Mathq ill tell you the events in order of their occurrence, I installed the dsdt.aml file and restarted, booted back up, still no progress. So i tried the -f useKernelCache=no command at boot, to try and see if it worked. Whilst the kexts were loading, I noticed that i saw appleHDA there, so i thought that was good news. However then in turn i could not boot, as i would arrive at the line of "still waiting for root device", odd because i figured this issue only occurred when the booted device was not properly in HFS+. So i go back into the BIOS, just to check everything. lo and behold, firstly it takes forever for the BIOS to read the disks, secondly when i check the names of the HDDs they are ALL off. instead of being WH1001822020 or whatever, it has P-0 and P-2 etc etc. so i set the configuration to IDE and reboot, no problems, drives read very quickly. After setting the configuration back to AHCI I reboot without a command just to make sure i can still boot into mac. No problems, except of course the sound. I try it again for the heck of it, hoping maybe it was a glitch or something, however the same thing happened again. I have a few questions. Is there a problem with my original DSDT file? Is there some kind of issue with my MOBO/HDDs and AHCI that somehow might render them unreadable? I found that the program was loading a kext by the name of:SM56KUSBAudioFamily.kext. could this be an issue? Thanks for all your help again!
  10. Thanks Mathq, I will try this when I get home!
  11. ok im going to edit the dsdt in hdd/extra/dsdt.aml using dsdtse. I'm adding the patch AFTER the method DTGP but BEFORE the whole line of code gets closed. Please let me know if thats right before i recompile the dsdt and restart, otherwise im worried about seriously messing something up Method (DTGP, 5, NotSerialized) { If (LEqual (Arg0, Buffer (0x10) { /* 0000 */ 0xC6, 0xB7, 0xB5, 0xA0, 0x18, 0x13, 0x1C, 0x44, /* 0008 */ 0xB0, 0xC9, 0xFE, 0x69, 0x5E, 0xAF, 0x94, 0x9B })) { If (LEqual (Arg1, One)) { If (LEqual (Arg2, Zero)) { Store (Buffer (One) { 0x03 }, Arg4) Return (One) } If (LEqual (Arg2, One)) { Return (One) } } } Store (Buffer (One) { 0x00 }, Arg4) Return (Zero) } Method (DTGP, 5, NotSerialized) { If (LEqual (Arg0, Buffer (0x10) { /* 0000 */ 0xC6, 0xB7, 0xB5, 0xA0, 0x18, 0x13, 0x1C, 0x44, /* 0008 */ 0xB0, 0xC9, 0xFE, 0x69, 0x5E, 0xAF, 0x94, 0x9B })) { If (LEqual (Arg1, One)) { If (LEqual (Arg2, Zero)) { Store (Buffer (One) { 0x03 }, Arg4) Return (One) } If (LEqual (Arg2, One)) { Return (One) } } } Store (Buffer (One) { 0x00 }, Arg4) Return (Zero) } Device (HDEF) { Name (_ADR, 0x001B0000) Method (_DSM, 4, NotSerialized) { Store (Package (0x04) { "layout-id", Buffer (0x04) { 0x0C, 0x00, 0x00, 0x00 }, "PinConfigurations", Buffer (Zero) {} }, Local0) DTGP (Arg0, Arg1, Arg2, Arg3, RefOf (Local0)) Return (Local0) } } } that final closing backet closes the entire thing. the instructions dont specify where to put the code, so im unsure as to whether im doing it right. edit i noticed that I hadnt added the new method after the first method that was present in the dsdt, i added that 2nd method to the file. also this bit about Name (_ADR, 0x001B0000) is not present in my dsdt. The finder can only find it after i have added the first bit of code in chapter 2.
  12. nope on both counts. how can i enable it, with that -f command in the boot?
  13. i removed applehda and installed the one you have linked, still the same problem of no sound. what do you think?
  14. Im looking around for HDAEnabler.kext, is this one alright? http://www.osx86.net/view/12-hdaenabler_(32--64-bit).html seems a bit old. Thanks again mathq Edit: I went ahead and installed it and now i have no sound, and it seems to be forcing mute. in the sound menu the mute is checked and greyed out, therefore i cant unmute it. then when i adjust via the keyboard, there is a cancel symbol below the sound bars that indicate volume.
  15. i installed appleHDA with kext utility after putting both voodoohda.kext and .bak files into the trash. then rebooted, sadly to no avail. should I repair it like i did the other files? being that it was an update that screwed up my sound, might the problem lie somewhere else other than the drivers, being that it doesnt seem like the update messed with them to begin with? maybe i dont know just throwing it out there.
