  1. [HOWTO] Boot Macs with Intel Chipset in AHCI Win7 Vista XP Linux

    Thanks for pointing out how to find the correct PCI register settings. I tried it on my macbook with MCP89 SATA controller. I extracted the register values with lspci -nn | grep SATA lspci -xxxx -d 10de:0d88 > out.txt on OS X (I googled for an OSX version of lspci, it is contained in MyHack 3.1) and used setpci -d 10de:0d85 ADDR.b=VAL to set the values on linux. I did not succeed, however. It seems, that it is not possible to change the MCP89 SATA controller to AHCI mode without using EFI (?), as mentioned in another forum (forget where, sry). I attached my value list to this post. mcp89_ahci.txt
  2. AppleNForceATA found 0 units / Still waiting for root device

    I didn't try to get the onboard data work with 10.6, I tried only 10.7. I doubt it will work with 10.6..
  3. AppleNForceATA found 0 units / Still waiting for root device

    No, it seems that the nForce ATA driver just don't work well with my board... Probably I managed to install Lion with this PCIe SATA III card on my board, though: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=265281
  4. Pinnacle 310i driver

    I know its been a long time since your post, but it's worth a try: Did you get your card working? I have a Pinnacle PCTV 310i too. Details of the Pinnacle PCTV 310i: Philips Semiconductors Ph3xIB64 Nxp Semiconductors
  5. Hello, Sound is working for me (installed via [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url]: AudioHDA Patch, ALC8xxHDA, Non-DSDT HDAEnabler/ALC888). I used to have Voodoo HDA installed which didn't work for me. I can change bit rate from 44100 to 48000 in "Audio Midi Setup.app", but after restarting it is always reset to 44100. It works as long as I don't restart! I tried to delete the following files: com.apple.audio.AudioMIDISetup.plist com.apple.audio.AudioMIDISetup.plist.lockfile com.apple.audio.DeviceSettings.plist com.apple.audio.SystemSettings.plist But they are recreated when rebooting. It is interesting, that I can change the key "AppleHDAEngineOutput:F,1,0,1,3:0 / output streams / item 0 / sample rate" in com.apple.audio.DeviceSettings.plist from 441000 to 48000. This will keep the 48000 even when restarting, but only for one of the outputs.. Attached are my plists. plists.zip
  6. Hello, i managed to install 10.7.1 successfully. Currently only the power button isn't recognized (that isn't a big problem for me), everything else works. Graphic Card, Audio etc including. Should I use personal DSDT or is it not necessary when everything is working? How do I know if some drivers are missing? (e.g. something not really visible like CPU temp sensors) Thanks in advance
  7. How to rebuild kext cache?

    I didn't get it to work, even with various boot CDs/DVDs.. So I reinstalled 10.7.0 and updated to 10.7.1. This is working. I added the following kexts/extras: Didn't try to update to 10.7.2 so far..
  8. Hello, thanks for pointing out that this SATA PCIe Card worked for you! I bought it on ebay for about 18 EUR. Exact the same card as in your picture. Worked without any problem to install Lion 10.7.1 on an nForce 780i SLI board (this board lacks AHCI support and I had no luck with many kexts, so i bought this card). PS: Never tried RAID or hot swap.
  9. Hello, i succeeded to install 10.7.0 via Part E. method from first post. (Boot via verdant Boot CD, no Chameleon installed to hard disk) After updating to 10.7.2, it always shows "still waiting for root device" error. I booted with -v -s UseKernelCache=Yes and followed the instructions in "Resolving the still waiting for root device error message on bootup after updating to OS X Lion 10.7.2". Now I can't boot even with -v -s UseKernelCache=Yes. I made a new DVD Install disk, this time from Install App, v10.7.2. When I try to boot this disc, it shows the "still waiting for root device" error. The 10.7.0 Install DVD is working.. Why isn't the 10.7.2 DVD working?!
  10. How to rebuild kext cache?

    After deleting the old cache files, I can't even get to the command prompt via -v -s (with and without UserKernelCache=Yes). I tried it with rd=disk0, rd=disk0s1, rd=disk0s2, rd=disk0s3, rd=disk1, rd=disk1s1, rd=disk1s2, rd=disk1s3 but no success... I always get the still waiting for root device error..
  11. How to rebuild kext cache?

    OK, I am now able to reach the command prompt: I booted the HDD installation with -v -s UserKernelCache=Yes But every time I try to run a command (e.g. a simple one like mkdir /test/) it says "Read only file system". No change if i use sudo (e.g. sudo mkdir /test/). If i try su, it states "Segmentation fault: 11". How can I make changes to the disk? // Edit: Forget to run /sbin/mount -uw / Now i can make changes to filesystem. I will try to rebuild the cache now.
  12. How to rebuild kext cache?

    Hello, thank you for the answer! I tried both -s and -v -f, but I get stuck. How is it possible to enter terminal commands without a working installation? I tried to boot from the installation DVD and start the terminal. This works, but if I try to change something on the HDD, the commands fail with the message "read only file system". It is also strange, that the terminal doesn't recognize sudo..
  13. How to rebuild kext cache?

    Hello, after updating to 10.7.2 (from working 10.7.0) I get the Still waiting for root device error. I cannot get past it, even with using different startup parameters (-f, -x, etc). I am getting past this error, when using UseKernelCache=Yes, but I can't complete the booting. Some posts suggests that I should rebuild the kernel cache. But how can I access the hard disk? Should I use some Linux live CDs? Linux can't write to journaled HFS+ volumes, so that won't work. The following is suggested, but how to do it?
  14. Hello, i am trying to install OS X Lion 10.7 via [url=&quot;http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/&quot;]#####[/url]/USB Stick Install/Mac App Store method. I am using a nForce 780i SLI board, which has got no native AHCI mode for SATA. I included the AppleNForceATA.imk64bit.kext driver in the extra folder (this is the only AppleNForceATA driver that worked for me in 32bit and 64bit mode). The driver gets loaded after booting (with -v or -x or -f or or arch=i386 or cpus=1 or maxmem=2048 or combination of them). But it doesn't recognize my IDE drive or my SATA drive..
