  1. GUIDE: ASUS EAH4650 (ATI 4650 GPU) with QE/CI

    Using boot file from netkas and drivers, I was getting a blank screen with my ASUS EAH4670. I tried all different combinations to try to get out of the blank screen, but nothing helped. Then I gave the kext's posted here and used the boot file from PC_EFI 5.0. Changed the vendor id to my card 9490 1002... and to my surprise, it worked!!! QE/CI and all resolutions (DVI2VGA)! BIG THANKS! I was going to return the video card, but this thread came just in time! Major PROPS! Side note: To the OP, did you do anything differently to the kext's? It not, then I guess it was the PC_EFI boot file that made it work on my system.
  2. You will need to flash with the bios that I attached to my post. It contains a different DSDT table that allows APIC to work properly under OSX. Please report back if successful.
  3. I'm running a E5200 45nm Wolfdale CPU clocked at 2.5 gighz. I never have to boot with the cpus=1 flag. I'm using original 10.5.5 kernel straight from the update. I do believe all the .kext are vanilla as well. Bios settings are as follows: CPU TM Function: Enabled Max CPUID Value Limit: Disabled Execute Disable Bit: Enabled Intel SpeedStep tech: Disabled Enhanced Halt: Enabled APIC Mode: Enabled <----- Important to enable this because the modification in the bios makes this works now. High Performance Event Timer: Enabled I do boot with the -f flag, so maybe that could be another reason why I don't need to use cpus=1.
  4. So great news guys who have the ECS 945GCT-M/1333 version 3.0 board. I successfully modded the bios to get 2 cores enabled with the latest bios (Version: 08/07/18 Release Date: 2008/08/28). CREDIT GOES TO ALL THOSE WHO PARTICIPATED IN THIS THREAD: http://forum.insanelymac.com/index.php?showtopic=90505 Disclaimer: Flashing your bios is risky and I assume no responsibility to any damage that may occur. This bios is only for version 3.0 motherboards (ECS 945GCT-M 3.0)! DO NOT FLASH IF U DO NOT HAVE THIS MOTHERBOARD! Good luck to those who try! Bios settings are as follows: CPU TM Function: Enabled Max CPUID Value Limit: Disabled Execute Disable Bit: Enabled Intel SpeedStep tech: Disabled Enhanced Halt: Enabled APIC Mode: Enabled High Performance Event Timer: Enabled moddedbios.zip

  8. LAN, Sound, RAID, Sleep/Wake all work as well? What drivers did u have to install? I'm interested in getting this board. Have you tried overclocking?
  9. You have to rehex the ATIRadeonX1000 file because the 10.5.1 update replaces this file with a newer ATIRadeonX1000. After rehexing, you should be fine. You know what, I didn't realize that it made a big difference from replacing the existing 0x71c01002 then just adding your own device id it to the list. When I did mine, I replaced it with mine and didn't add it so I didn't have this problem. So when I wrote up the guide I didn't know it made a difference so I just wrote to add it. Now I think this is the reason why people are having some troubles with this method.I updated the guide to say to replace the original device id and vendor id instead of adding it to the list, hopefully now it'll increase the success rate of this method.Thanks dashaund!
  10. What's the most Leopard compatible mATX motherboard?

    ECS 945GCT-M (V1.0) LGA 775 Intel 945GC Micro ATX Intel Motherboard - Retail http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16813135051 I have this motherboard with an E4500. Stock CPU is 2.2 gighz, however I BSEL mod and VMOD to 1.41v the CPU and motherboard recognizes it at E4500 but at 2.93 gighz. Can not overclock it any further, however, it is very stable. Everything is recognized on it, and Leopard runs beautifully. I have no complaints. If you live anywhere theres a Fry's (West Coast), sometimes they have a combo deal with this exact motherboard with the same exact cpu for ~$118 which in my mind is a steal.
  11. Some programs like to crash

    Any of you running with an overclocked system? How does the program crash? Is it a kernel panic?
  12. 10.5.1 Installs a new ATIRadeonX1000.kext so you can either do the hex editing manually or try deleting the updated kext (ATIRadeonX1000.kext) out of your System/Library/Extensions folder and install my old package again to see if it works. But I will be coming out with a better package soon.
  13. JaS 10.4.8 -> Koolkal 10.4.10 & Dual booting with Leopard 9a581 (GM) ToH RC2 DVD w/ EFI Emulator using Apples Stock Kernel. Works like a dream! :-D I have the ECS 945GZT, supports 1066 bus so I can BSEL my chip from 2.2 gighz to 3.0 gighz...
  14. ATI X1600 PRO AGP Support for Leopard

    I have made a driver installation package... find ur device id in the list and install... let me know how it works out for u. http://forum.insanelymac.com/index.php?showtopic=69345
  15. Just tried that, I was able to change resolutions, but for my card, it didn't enable QE/CI. My device id = 71c3, x1650 Pro PCIE 256mb.
