  1. I've been working on this for almost 4 days and have almost gotten to the point of going back to Snow Leopard. I know my hardware will work because there are a bunch of other people on these forums that have gotten it to work just fine. I can get audio and LAN working, but video is eluding me. In order to boot I have to remove ATIRadeon4800Controller.kext and boot with GraphicsEnabler=No. Using netkas' 10.7.2 QE Exotic patch causes a panic no matter what I do. I found a QE patch on OSx86.net and that so far has provided me with the best results. I am using a custom DSDT that I made with DSDT auto patcher. I have tried to use the DSDT provided in the Lionize thread, but I get the same results. Also I am using the ALC8xx and AppleHDAudio kexts from the latest [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url]. In order to get networking support, all I had to do was edit the Info.plist in AppleYukon2.kext. I know that LAN and audio work because if I remove ATIRadeon4800Controller.kext and boot with GraphicsEnabler=No the system will boot. My machine id is MacPro 4,1 and the SMBoardproduct is Mac-F221BEC8. I'm using chameleon 2.0 r1393 This is what happens when GraphicsEnabler=No and I have the 4800controller kext installed This is what happens when GraphicsEnabler=Yes and the kext is installed
  2. NVIDIA CUDA 3.1 for MAC release

    I'm using it with the new drivers and it works great with SETI.
  3. I've installed the kext, the prefpane and voodoohdahelper properly but the kext doesn't load. com.apple.kextd[10]: Can't load /System/Library/Extensions/VoodooHDA.kext - failed to resolve dependencies. That's the error I get. I was using an older version of voodoohda which worked just fine, so I'm not sure which dependencies are missing. The kext won't load in 32 or 64 bit mode. Anyone have any ideas? Vanilla 10.6.3 with and Intel DG33TL mobo that has STAC9271D audio
  4. I ran the package installer and restarted my computer. I can no longer boot into Snow Leopard, in fact my computer will not even boot from that drive at all. I can still access my Snow Leopard drive using Macdrive. Anyone have any advice?
  5. SL Identifying as a PPC

    Try this thread. http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=189562 Basically you need to install Netkas' PC EFI 10.4 or later. It will tell SL what processor you actually or the closest Mac equivalent and all should be well.
  6. The original kext posted in this thread doesn't work with 10.6.2 and Apple has updated it, which makes my drives revert back to Unknown AHCI. I have modified the one from 10.6.2 and included it in this post. Credit still goes to MacNutty for modifying the original and providing me with the info needed to fix the updated kext. AppleAHCIPort.kext.zip
  7. snow pause with the little beach ball

    The HPET kext didn't work but I did find http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=192569 that worked great for me. Make sure you have an ICH9 SATA controller though
  8. I've had an uptime of almost three days and haven't had a single problem with SL just randomly freezing. I do believe that this fixed my problems with the spinning beach ball of death. Thanks for the kext!
  9. I installed this and am hoping that it will keep the random periods of the spinning cursor and unresponsiveness go away. Before I installed this SL didn't recognize my SATA controller but now it recognized just fine.
  10. snow pause with the little beach ball

    I would like to have the irq solution posted. I've had this problem before and one of the first things I did when I installed SL was to uncheck that option since that fixed my problem in Leopard. I've only experienced the problem once in SL but it was with around a two day uptime. I've been doing some gaming in Windows so I haven't really had an uptime that long since the problem. I am also curious about this because about 1/3 of the time when I try to boot leopard my computer just freezes at the grey apple screen. I booted in verbose mode and I'm pretty sure the error was waiting on root device. I have an ICH9 chipset btw. My board is an Intel DG33TL and all my drives, including my DVD drive are SATA.
  11. Thanks for the heads up. I wasn't able to get the system to recognize my Q6700, but I'm not really surprised since that isn't a cpu that Apple actually uses. Instead I used the code for the Quad Core Xeon and everything is working great.
  12. I ran ioreg -l in the terminal and this is the closes thing to cpu-type that I can find. | "OSKernelCPUType" = 16777223 Is that the value I need to use or am I on the wrong track? Also, is this kext 64 bit compatible?
  13. I have the same problem with my Q6700. CPU-x and sysctl both report the correct cpu, however my About This Mac and System Profiler do not. I also have the same problem with Silverlight. I hope there is a way to get this fixed. So far it hasn't really affected me too much but I had everything working perfectly in Leo and would like the same in Snow.
  14. KPs are driving me nuts!

    Looks like I spoke too soon. All was going well until I decided to open up Disk Utility and clicked on Verify Disk. The moment I clicked the button I got a KP and then they kept coming about every 10 minutes after. For some reason I started getting a KP every time I tried to reinstall Snow. I have since gone back to Leopard. I'll give snow another shot when all the bugs get worked out since I don't have a spare drive to play with Snow until I can get it working as an every day system. http://pseudogreen.org/blog/disable_spotli...in_leopard.html <-- tutorial to disable spotlight
  15. KPs are driving me nuts!

    I had the exact same problem. I had a KP about every 5 minutes after a restart. I disabled Spotlight and have been running for about 45 minutes now. I hope there is a fix for this other than disabling Spotlight. I really enjoy using it.
