  1. OSX on Asus G60VX

    TSCSync is working well, I need to find an SD card to test out the SDHC driver. I wanted to add that I took the \Downloads\g51vxworking\Extra\Extensions folder and copied Extensions to \Extra\Extensions on the install drive. After this, camera functionality started working. I wonder if I need to add any of them or any of the others located at \Downloads\g51vxworking\System\Library\Extensions to be installed by the kext installer utility? I was experiencing some of the same things as other users. In regards to crackling in sound, what it seem like to me was that it was turning the speakers in to microphones. The mic and the speakers were picking up sound/interference so turned the mic down and disabled it as well as increased noise reduction on the speaker settings which seems to have improved things. As for the computer going to sleep I have disabled sleep for now. I have sleep enabler.kext from the g51_working folder in the Extensions area of the file system as stated above, but every time the computer went to sleep I was unable to bring it out of the sleep state and ended up rebooting. Still no luck yet with the onboard keyboard and trackpad. I've tried installing VoodooPS2Controller.kext both the one from the g51_working folder and a different one I found online that is in pkg format but neither seem to work for me. Apparently, I'm also seeing that when I modify the settings in VoodooHDA they will reset back to their default after I reboot. Anyone know why this is? I'm guessing I'll need a startup script b/c changing it manually is already getting annoying.
  2. OSX on Asus G60VX

    I've got lion installed via the flash drive install method; basically following lifehacker tutorials. In the process of triple booting but I'm trying to make sure OSX is working perfectly before I install the other OS's. My understanding is OSX needs to be first, then Windows, then Linux. In Linux you need to run gptsync /dev/sda to fix the boot loader issue. In the beginning partitioning, before OSX was installed I used Gparted live cd to format both drives and write MSDOS partition/file tables. Then in the OSX install I used the disk utility to create an OSX partition that was hfs+ (mac journaled fs) and created msdos/fat for the Win & Linux partitions. After OSX is installed and you start the windows installation you need to format the partition as ntfs in order to write to it otherwise it says "this is a gpt partition table". Even though it's not we're making a hybrid and it thinks it is from what I can tell due to the fact that OSX installs/creates an EFI hidden partition at the beginning of the drive. The issues I'm having right now are just getting all of the drivers working in OSX 10.7, I couldn't get the DSDT file listed on this site to work. So I used [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] with the options of easy beast and system utilities checked. Afterwards I used arch=i386 and cpus=1 to boot off of the hard drive. I installed what I think is the latest drivers for sound and ethernet and they are both working. VoodooHDA-2.7.2.pkg RealtekRTL81xx-0_0_90.pkg I am about to try the TSCSync and see if I can get that and the VoodooSDHC working. If I am able to then I still need to fix the keyboard/trackpad issue. I have an external keyboard and mouse connected via usb, but the keyboard and trackpad on the system don't seem to work at the moment. Graphics drivers pretty much worked out of the box after installing [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url]. I'm currently using a resolution of 1366 x 768 which is much better than the 1024 x 768 I was dealing with. The G60vx keyboard layout helped me to get the pipe symbol back, thanks. Now if I can just use the onboard keyboard I'll be set! Thank you to everyone in the community that has posted for these many years giving people like myself the ability to read through your notes and learn from you. And, thank you to all who have contributed code/configurations/etc... which have made compatibility, and ease of setup, work even better with our laptops! Regards, -d0cipx
