  1. Boot without "cpus=1"

    I've already tried the ModCD when installing OSX but that only allows 1 core (It has cpus=1 set automatically) - I now boot from Chameleon installed on the hard drive. More progress, If I don't put cpus=1 or put a higher number and wait a while I get the dreaded "Still waiting for root device" message.
  2. Increase resolution unsupported graphics card

    Thanks, Still couldn't get it to work so ended up throwing a GeForce 210 in, I still use the 560ti under windows which is what I game in anyway. Once a lion amd kernel is out I should be able to use the 560ti in mac os
  3. Boot without "cpus=1"

    Hi, I finally have my first hackintosh almost working but I have to boot with "cpus=1". I have an 8 core CPU so this seems like a real waste. How do I go about booting without this flag so I can use all 8 cores? If I don't use the flag, the boot will hang after a message about USBF controller unloading across sleep. CPU: AMD FX8150 8 core (4.0GHz overclock) Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-990FXA-UD5 Snow Leopard 10.6.3 Any help would be greatly appreciated!
  4. About GT 555M

    I can't speak for Lion but I can say that NVIDIA 5xx series cards are not supported under snow leopard.
  5. Hi, My PC is AMD so can't run Lion and my current graphics card (nVidia GeForce GTX 560ti) is not supported under Snow Leopard so I can't get QE/QC or run my monitor at 1920x1200. I'm wondering if I would be able to pick up a cheap GT 210 and install it and use it for MacOS and use the 560ti under Windows 7. My monitor has both VGA and DVI inputs so I can keep both cards connected to the monitor and just use the input selector button to change the input. Is this possible and has anyone done this, also I take it that the GT210 is supported under snow leopard?
  6. Hi, I'm trying to install Snow Leopard on my PC (I have an AMD CPU so can't install Lion) but my resolution is stuck at 1024x768 which is a long way off my monitor at 1920x1200. I have a 560ti which I have read is not compatible with Snow Leopard and needs Lion but this is out of the option due to the lack of AMD kernel. Is it possible to either get my 560ti working in Snow Leopard or at least increase the resolution to 1920x1200? I have tried setting "GraphicsMode"=1920x1200x32 at the bootloader but when I get into OSX, the resolution has decreased to 1600x1200. Any help would be greatly appreciated
