  1. Dell XPS 410 Resource Extravaganza

    Ok, I updated my system to 10.5.6.. For anyone who wants a full in one solution for their XPS 410 go to this link and follow: http://wiki.osx86project.org/wiki/index.ph...10.5.6/Desktops
  2. Ok, I'm hoping someone here can point me in the right direction.. After a long time putting it off I finally decided to upgrade my XPS 410 hackintosh! I downloaded the ideneb 1.4 (10.5.6) dvd and went to town.. Everything works great, the nic (not internal), video, sound, etc. I was amazed at the ease of install. However there is one problem... My 2nd and 3rd SATA2 drives are SLOW! I mean like 1 mbit a second slow! But the main system drive which is too a SATA drive is just fine. The SATA ports & hardware are as follows: 1 - System Drive Western Digital WDC WD360GD-75GHA0 2- DVD - TSSTcorp DVD+/-RW TS-H653A 3 - 2nd SATA Maxtor 6L200M0 5 - 3rd SATA Seagate ST3250820AS I've tried the following: Installing the latest IOATAFamily.kext I also tried this: Use RAID / Auto!! You will find to be able to use it on RAID setting or RAID/Auto setting you need to add the Device ID to your AppleAHCIPort.kext <key>ICH8RAHCI</key> <dict> <key>CFBundleIdentifier</key> <string>com.apple.driver.AppleAHCIPort</string> <key>Chipset Name</key> <string>ICH8-R AHCI</string> <key>IOClass</key> <string>AppleAHCI</string> <key>IOPCIPrimaryMatch</key> <string>0x28218086 0x28228086</string> <key>IOProbeScore</key> <integer>2000</integer> <key>IOProviderClass</key> <string>IOPCIDevice</string> <key>Vendor Name</key> <string>Intel</string> </dict> I'm not sure what else to try, anyone have any ideas? The weird thing is my system drive is just fine but the seagate and maxtor both are SLOW, they are not even usable. I've tried swapping sata cables, switching around ports,etc. ALSO: Before in my SATA operation settings in the BIOS I was using AUTO/RAID but that will not work with this distro so I'm having to use RAID-ON.

    Slave, did your mic input work after this update? In fact, does anyone have a XPS 410 and have the mic inputs working? it's the ONLY thing that isn't working on my entire box. I'm sticking with 10.8 until Leopard probably.

    You know I thought I had EVERYTHING working until I saw this post. tested my MIC and no go. Anyone else have any luck? Using the 9227 HDA codec dump.

    Ok, thanks to everyone who's posted their results up so far. I had success getting OS86 to boot on my XPS410 this weekend using the 10.4.8 Intel only CD. I unchecked the USB patch but I still am not getting any response on my keyboard. I'm using the reseeded JaS DVD 10.4.8 Intel only. Do I need to patch this DVD in order for this to work? I'm also unclear how to patch the ISO images with the updates. Any help would be great! Right now MacOSX boots up but no mouse or keyboard available. Dell XPS410 Mac OS X x86 10.4.8 with mifki - Jas 10.4.8 SSE3 Intel Only Reseed I checked the following JaS options: - JaS.10.4.8.Combo.Update - INTEL.SSE3.mifki - INTEL.ICH8.SATA.Support I left the USB patch UNCHECKED. Still no Keyboard or Mouse System Specs: Intel P965 Chipset - Core 2 Duo 6300 1.8 1GB DDR-2 667MHz - Nvidia 7300 LE Sata0 - 30GB Apple-HPFS
