  1. Asus Geforce GTX 650 problem

    Hi guys. I installed Snow Leopard using the tonymacx86 method. I had everything working perfectly fine on my rig until I switched out my video card for the Asus Geforce GTX 650. The card runs perfectly when I switch over to windows (separate hard drive), but now I get to the apple loading screen, and it tells me to restart the computer. I tried starting with graphicsenabler=no to no avail. -x -v -f don't work either. I'm nowhere near an expert at this and could use a little help My system: Asrock G41M-S3 Intel Core 2 Quad CPU 8GB DDR3 RAM OSX Version: 10.6.3 The old card was a Gigabyte Geforce 9500 GT, worked fine. If you need any additional help, just ask. Any help is much appreciated! Thanks!
  2. I'm running 10.6.7 on an AMD PC, if you need more specs just let me know, but this might be an OSX problem. Graphics card is Nvidia Geforce 9500GT It was running fine for a few days, but ever since I've tried to install Pro Tools a few times, I've had issues with choppy/jerky video on youtube, and other flash player video sites. It makes the videos pretty much unwatchable. Any idea what it might be? I've seen this problem on an actual Mac Pro (PowerPC processors), so could it be the lack of Intel processors?
  3. Cheers man. Never thought of it! I'll try 8 tomorrow.
  4. Hey guys. So I finally got a hackintosh up and running! It runs like a dream (except for a slight problem with airport - but if I update, it won't work)... Anyway, that's not important right now! So I have Pro Tools 7.4, and 8 (free upgrade all that time ago). Instead of waiting for 8 to download from Avid, I thought I'd do a quick check to see if 7.4 works with my Hack. It doesn't. Install went fine, cs update went fine (although it doesn't mention the cs update in the "About Pro Tools" section....) and the program itself boots fine (quickest it's ever booted in fact). The problem I have is when I'm opening sessions. It'll show the usual status window (building edit window etc. etc.) and then get perpetually stuck there until I have to force quit it due to lack of response... Any idea what might be causing this? I'm able to use the MBox 2 for everything else and it runs smooth. Specs: Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-MA78GM-UD2H Processor: AMD Phenom X3 8650 (triple core) RAM: 4gb DDR2 Graphics: NVidia Geforce 9500 GT I've got 4 hard drives in the computer - First is my Snow Leopard OS (although I think it's in the last sata port), and I've got another HFS+ one in there, and two more (NTFS). I've also got 2 external drives - one NTFS, and one partitioned (one FAT32 and one HFS). I've also got a DVD drive. Wireless card is a TP-Link (something). Here's my SL install method (in case it matters): My install method (after many fails) was to use the Nawcom Mod CD and Snow Leopard (10.6.0) Retail. Left the customization at default settings (it picks the best ones for the pc). Formatted my drive as Journaled, GUID partition scheme. Install went ahead. Booted into the system. Installed Legacy Kernel 10.7.0, backed up my /System/Library/Extensions folder, ran the 10.6.7 combo update from Apple (didn't restart yet), then ran [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] 3.9.0. The tutorial I followed told me to check the following: *System Utilities *Drivers & Bootloaders>Kexts & Enablers>Miscellaneous>ElliottForceLegacyRTC *Drivers & Bootloaders>Kexts & Enablers>Miscellaneous>EvOreboot *Drivers & Bootloaders>Kexts & Enablers>Miscellaneous>IOUSBFamily Rollback *Drivers & Bootloaders>Kexts & Enablers>Miscellaneous>NullCPUPowerManagement *Drivers & Bootloaders>Bootloaders>Chimera v1.5.4 r1394 *Customization>System Definitions>Mac Pro>MacPro 5,1 *Customization>tonymacx86 Classic *OSx86 Software So I did all that, rebooted, and the system wouldn't boot from the HD. I assumed it was the Chimera bootloader I checked in [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url], so I booted from the Nawcom Boot CD (graphics weren't working properly - 1024x786 etc.) and airport wouldn't work. So I deleted "IO80211Family.kext" from my System/Library/Extensions/ folder, and used my backed up kexts from 10.6.0 to reinstall "IO80211Family.kext" using Kext Utility. Rebooted (with the CD again), and Airport worked fine again. So I went online and downloaded "Chameleon RC5.pkg" (can't remember the site I got it from), installed it, and I was able to boot once again from the HD, with everything working. Haven't had any problems except for this Pro Tools issue (and the slight Airport issue which I don't mind too much). Any ideas?
  5. Snow Leopard won't boot!

    Hey man thanks for your reply! I kinda figured that out I'm using this guide at the moment: http://geeknizer.com/install-snow-leopard-on-amd/ Hopefully this'll do the trick.
  6. Snow Leopard won't boot!

    Hey guys, long time reader, first time poster. I'm trying to get OS X 10.6 running on my PC, with great difficulty. I initially used i@kos s3 v2, and was able to install OS X successfully, but it wouldn't boot. I kept getting some sort of "No DSDT found" or something, and a few lines after that. But I couldn't read any of them because they flashed up so fast and the computer instantly rebooted! The DSDT error was the only thing I saw. So I tried the [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] method. Burned [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] to a disc, already had a Snow Leopard (retail) disc. Configured my (Award - version F2) BIOS (to the best of my knowledge), and booted into [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url]. From there, I ejected the disc, and put the SL DVD in, waited until it stopped reading, hit F5, and booted into it. Exact same error (DSDT and a few other lines - then reboot). I tried various commands from [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] (busratio=20 , -f, -v, -x, -s, cpus=1 etc.) but no luck what-so-ever. Any ideas?? I've attached a .txt file with my specs (pretty much just exported from CPU-Z). If anybody needs any more details (not sure if I need to give any), just gimme a shout and I'll give them! Thanks very much for taking the time to read this. BRYAN_PC.txt
