    10 minutes later... i havent gotten onboard audio to work... i think ive fried that part of my MOBO from back in the day....here... let me explain... about 2 years ago i took my system apart to give it a good cleaning... got all the dust out... upgraded some fans, and upgraded the heatsink on my CPU... anyway... when i went to plug everything back in i plugged the 1394 cord into where the HD audio for the front panel was supposed to go... i have not been able to get the onboard to work since... not even the front panel.. so... i did have an Audigy2 ZS that i was using alongside... i had my speakers plugged into it.. and used the onboard for headphones during gaming. however.. i disconnected all this to install osx.... so i reinstalled it.. and im off and running with the KXaudiodriver BUT... there are not controls in the output pane of sound preferences... i dont know what to do...
  6. SUCCESS help a new guy get going

    anyway... fixxed the system profiler hanging when selecting serial ata to read specs... i installed new applenforceata.kext im now getting kernel panic mounting DMGs i still have no sound. but i still havent installed a driver for it. im going to work on that in a min after i fix the DMG problem... apparently i need the seatbelt.kext for 10.5.5? anyone verify this? ive tried to install SL and keep getitng kernel panic for sleep enabler. i think this is becasue of the modbin kernel. i seriously do. i have a spare drive in a dell E310 that im going to swipe and try again.. this install on this HDD is doing good.. i just solved the DMG thing. now onto the audio

  8. SUCCESS help a new guy get going

    So I have gotten iPC to install and I'm booted into leopard 10.5.6 after several attempts today. Everything is NOT ok...lol I have no sound....however....I think I know the problem...(forgot to plug in the speakers....oops) so I will check that in the morning. I am a total noob to the Mac OSx. I mean total. But I am completely fed up with windows and it's problems. I'm sitting here typing this post from my iPad because the windows machine I was using earlier decided it can't keep up with how slow I type.... So please bear with me as I try and keep up with what everyone says to do... Please pictures will be helpful. So I'll get down to the problems I notice first. 1: To boot the system takes upwards of ten minutes from the time I push the button and sitting on desktop. 2: I can't seem to find the video control panel...or how do I change the resolution. When I go to system profiler it says I have 64mb VRAM...I know I have 512 3: system profiler hangs when I click on sata 4: I loaded ps/2 keyboard fix....didnt see my ps/2 keyboard...but saw my USB zboard and I was in. Ps/2 keyboard still not working. 5: marvins amd utility....it freezes system...I have no idea how to use it. So those are my main concerns at the moment.... Mainly the video and boot time The options on install I believe were: Voodoo kernel 9.6 Ac97 audio Elliot CMOS fix And I'm sorry but that's all i can remember it's been a long day looking at options kernel panics errors and everything else I will post up in the morning exactly what I used

    23 views and not one "hi welcome" ? i see how its going to be.... anyway... i got my SATA drive still having issues. im working with the HAZARD distro now. i went to leohazards and got the patch to update the distro... did that and now still having issues. it will get all the way through the install... tells me at the beggining it has 8-9 min to finish. i wait....then at the end. it says install could not make osx boot. try using startup disk to boot i restart with out using startup disk.. change boot order to HDD first... and boots into chameleon... i hit space bar to enter options. boot with -v -f -x and it boots to apple screen.. and sits there. 15 min later.. it said before you begin... your keyboard is not recognized.. ok.. USB Zboard BTW. i switch to PS/2.. now keyboard is inactive in installer. works in the boot loader. so im reinstalling now. chose the PS2 fix listed as option.. chose amd patch. didnt choose graphics lan or audio... trying bare min here. also chose modbin kernel. the install is in the last min here... hang on....a minute has gone by....now 2...3.... while were waiting... first time around on this i chose a bunch of options in installer. and i think thats what caused my problems.... oh and look at that... install failed. says the installer could not make the computer start up from the volume. im going to do what i did and restart and change bios... kernel panic sleepenabler reboot with boot flags -v -f kernel panic sleepenabler... reboot with boot flags -v -x same thing. reboot with -v -f -x same thing..
  11. hello everyone. good to see so much help already here! im trying to get osx onto my PC but im running into a few snags. first off my system specs AMD athlon 64 x2 6400+ ASUS M2N SLI-Deluxe 4GB Gskill DDR2 PC2-6400(2GBx2 sticks) XFX 8800GT i dont know the full specs on this... i do know its 512 though. its been a while since ive looked at it. WD 320GB SATA HDD Sony IDE DVD drive now. ive only been working on this for a total of now 4 days. ive tried to install 3 different distros... got one of them to install. but kernel panic on boot from sleepenabler.kext ive searched up and down on how to remove this... and it simply is not in the folder described.. the extensions folder does not exist. this was on the hazard distro of 10.6.2 so onto the next one. i went diving through the hardware lists in the wiki and came across this distro SnowLeo Mac OSX86 for intel/AMD (32/64) ENG this was listed as working with my MOBO. i put it on DVD... and get "still waiting for root device" all day long. i tried putting it on USB... but this caused an EBIOS error. also after i think i solved that... it said error loading operating system. ive read that i need an IDE HDD.... so i found one... no change in the still waiting for root device. ive tried jumper settings... my bios has AHCI only on the Jmicron SATA controller. but this is one port... besides.. it didnt work that way either. so im going today to buy an SATA DVD drive... hopefully this will be the fix. im not trying to install alongside windows... im trying to have a standalone system here. i know it cant be all my hardware... because it will load the hazard distro and install it but with kernel panic... i also cant find a way to remove sleepenabler before install.
