  1. Is My Hackintosh Destroying USB Devices?

    Hmm voltages in bios looked correct. I ended up buying an iMac and the problems are gone. I just can't take the risk. After a lot of testing, I think I can safely say that the problem was caused by the Hackintosh. Most likely a faulty PSU or bad Kext compatibility issue.
  2. Hi all, I'm having a serious issue that I believe is attributed to my Hackintosh. I run a small music studio, using the Hackintosh as the primary computer. To convert audio signals into digital form, we use a very expensive (around $3000) analog to digital conversion unit that is connected through USB. About two weeks ago, the unit started experiencing random dropouts and noise while connected to the Hackintosh. As a test, I connected the unit to a real mac, and the operation seemed to be rock solid. About a week later (after operating with the Hackintosh),the A/D converter started outputting an awful high pitched noise upon powerup, even with the computer powered down. It was toast. I sent it in for repair and got a new one, thinking that the unit was flawed. Well, guess what, my new unit is starting to experience the same symptoms. I'm wondering if it's possible for the Hackintosh to be under or overpowering the unit through USB because of a kext mismatch. I've already resolved to drop the extra $ and buy a real mac, but I'm not sure if I should even keep running the studio at all on the Hackintosh. As a side note: Before this current A/D, I used a firewire device (with a different motherboard + cpu [Asus P5e]). The firewire device also crashed and burned and I went through two replacements before I bought a PCI Firewire card, which has been rock solid. So. Do I just have really bad luck with A/D converters, or is my motherboard outputting dangerous voltages? My specs: Asus P6X58D w/ i7 2.66ghz, 4gb Ram running Mac OS 10.8.5 (seemingly smooth). Geforce 650 1gb.
  3. Chameleon 2.1 issue

    I have a Intel Duo Core, ASUS P5e, NVIDIA GeForce 7950GTOC which I finally got working using the 10.6.6i distro, flashed rom & Chameleon 2.1. Although things are sort of working properly, I have a strange issue. So in order to get QE/CI enabled, I enable GraphicsEnabler=Yes on my Chameleon 2.1. This, however, puts my computer in a constant restart loop. If, however, I boot up from the Chameleon RC5 loader on the CD, I can boot into OSX and have full QE/CI support. How can I just use the 2.1 loader and eliminate the restart issue. Is there a special boot flag?
  4. BFG 7950GTOC Nightmare

    I have followed lots and lots of tutorials to no avail. I have patched my rom successfully, using a hex editor; tried natit .02, and efi string injectors. The closest i have gotten is full res with no qe support. This does not suffice as I am trying to run logic 9. I am using the SL 10.6.6i hazard distro. Chameleon SR5 with GraphicsEnabler=Yes does enable full res, but no QE. Same with NVEnabler 64. I tried adding my device id to NVDAResman and NVDA40? (can't remember the name) and now I cannot even startup in safe mode....yikes. Can anyone help me? I'm willing to reinstall the hazard distro, and possibly even buy a new graphics card if worst comes to worst, but I think we can get this working.
