  1. Cave Man

    Asus P5N7A-VM

    I'm not sure what's going on, but I've now been able to reboot 7 times without a problem AND my sound has mysteriously reappeared. My USB ports seem a bit wonky - sometimes they work, sometimes not. I also have a bluetooth dongle that works but connects to my Magic Mouse only sporatically. It sure is strange...

    Asus P5N7A-VM

    I'm having some difficulties. I'm trying to update from 10.5.6 to 10.5.8 and I'm losing audio and after a few successful boots I get the following at power up: boot0: GPT boot0: HFS+ boot0: booting boot0: done boot1: startupfile At this point Darwin should start loading, but doesn't. This seems to occur on occasion with other users but without an explanation that I can find. My process is to clone my 10.5.6 HD to a new drive using Carbon Copy Cloner, then use UInstaller to put on Chameleon. It boots fine. I then used Software Update to install the 10.5.8 update and then I lose audio. I used UInstaller to put AppleHDaudio.kext and HDAenabler.kext, but no sound even after a reboot. Then, for some reason, after a few reboots I get the above lines. This was done on two different hard drives with the same results. I can clone the non-booting drive to another drive and then install Chameleon and it boots fine - for a few times. Then it has the same problem. Any ideas?

    Add Ons for Quake

    There are two mission paks for Quake I for Mac that I know of: Rogue and Hipnotic. Once you copy these to your Mac hard drive, all you should have to do is drag the Rogue or Hipontic folder onto the GLQuake icon (built by "fruitz of dojo") and it'll launch with that mission.

    Can you provide more details on how you did this? I'd like to get to 10.6.3 but I'm currently on 10.5.6.
  5. Can this system boot from a 1.5 or 2 TB hard drive?

    9800 GTX working in OSX86

    I would like to upgrade my hackintosh to a 9800 GTX/1 GB. I currently have an 8600 GT. Would it simply be a matter of replacing the card, or would I have to reinstall the kext for the 9800? TIA.

    What file are you playing, and does it have an AC3 or DTS audio track? If so, then your receiver should switch its indicator light to show that it's receiving either Dolby Digital or DTS audio. My advice is to not even screw around with this. Apple has jacked-up digital audio passthough so badly in OS X that you will have difficulty knowing if it's a computer setting or a receiver setting. Just use Plex or XBMC since they automatically switch to digital optical output, provided the audio of your source is in AC3 or DTS.

    Failed installation on 2 TB drive

    I've tried reinstalling and if I boot from the Psystar CD, then select the 2 TB hard drive it boots fine. Any ideas as to what I'm doing wrong? TIA.

    P5K-SE - Retail Leopard Instalation

    My aluminum keyboard freezes the system, but my Apple Pro keyboard from my PowerMac G4 works fine. Don't know why.

    Wally - thanks for the help. What do you mean by "adjust the Chameleon bootloader"?
  11. Is there still a 1 TB limit for installations? I am able to install SL onto a 1 TB drive, but not a 2 TB drive. Everything is the same for both installations, but the 2 TB fails to boot on its own. The basic process is: Boot with Psystar EFI CD Install 10.6 Retail Reboot with Psystar EFI but choose hard drive boot Install p5k family pkg Reboot (this works fine with 1 TB drive, but fails with boot error from Asus board without even starting to boot) Install 10.6.2 updater Install Chameleon 2 RC3 Run UInstaller to put screen resolution, delay and graphics card Thanks!

    P5K-SE - Retail Leopard Instalation

    Can I use Carbon Copy Cloner to move from my 1 TB boot drive to a 2 TB boot drive? I realize I can clone it easy enough, but I'm not sure if it will boot without other modifications.
  13. You can now play Blu-ray disc movies with OS X using Make MKV and VLC. A plugin for Plex is in the works to streamline the process.

    Does the RC3 fix the 1 TB boot drive limit? I have a 2 TB drive I'd like to use for my boot drive, but don't want to go through the trouble of installing if it doesn't work.
