  1. Hello, forum users! After installing Parallels 5582 or 5570 comes that, and I even didn't run the app.(?). Does anyone know what could be the reason of such CPU activity? The most of CPU power is used by "kernel_task" Thanks a lot. people!

    Who is using a firewire based interface?

    RME FireFace 800 works like charm. On Leopard 10.5 too.
  3. I own a FF800, and on my MoBo everything works great.
  4. Thanks, Oracle67 I´m going for it.
  5. I have no problems with my Fireface800. Just to mention - RME suggests that You use motherboards with Texas Instruments chip as they develop their apps and systems on this kind of chip. Just look here: Tech Info - No VIA or other kind is secure to work without problems. Maybe to buy Dawicontrol IEEE1394b FW800 card for about 60 EUR- it has it. That´s why I bought D975XBX MoBo. P.S. People, attach Your computer configuration info on Your acco0unt setup page - it´s easier for answer the posts.
  6. Or maybe I have to update my ISO with "JaS.10.4.8.AMD.Intel.SSe2.SSe3.v1p" patch? (650 MB) and after that i have to put "Defiant.diskutil.7.ppf". Somewhere stays that there is a Diskutil installation bug on 10.4.8 sse2 sse3, which makes something wrong with partitioning. Am I actually trying to start from HD, and there is a bug present in this release?! Probably. *I´m still standing on the bridge*

    M-Audio AudioPhile 2496, pci soundcard

    Salax, that´s why i sold my M-Audio and bought Fireface 800 There´s nothing like RME. The latest thing they made is a PCIe 9632 audio card which really rocks. Only there is no support for DigiCheck on Mac OS X as it´s an ASIO multiclient monitoring software. M-audio have good hardware, but support sucks. There´s no sub 200$ professional card. Something like this is impossible. Knowledge has it´s price. Maybe ESI Egosys waveterminal serie, like 192L - they have one of the best AD/DA converter chip on market and are solid price. Good ASIO drivers. For Mac? Don´t know.
  8. How much firewire devices are You running on this machine? Three? Don´t You have only one firewire port? Is Motu on usb or firewire? Where ae the PowerCores installed??? Asus has Texas Instruments Firewire chip, this must be ok -but i think is Firewire 400. I can put two Firefaces 800 only if i have FW 800. For other devices i dont know. Try installing all devices separately to test them alone. About Midex 3: Probably you use it because of his LTB, but I think its better to go on with motu midi express 128 or something. Maybe You should buy some 60 EUR ieee1394b ( FireWire 800) PCI card to put in, like the Dawicontrol DC-FW800.It has a Texas Instruments chip. http://www.dolphinmusic.co.uk/page/shop/fl...product_id/8475
  9. I thought there could be some topic discussing if the way how curiosity of software enthusiasts could gain the OS and applications popularity. The problematic Windows platform and the possibility to share knowledge and ask for help through forums gained to Win OS big popularity, bad or good. Not only because there were few alternatives for IBM PC platform made in user-friendly way. And i mean it with focus on hardware support for a vaste number of gadgets and hardware we are using everyday, like scanners, cameras, ecc. For me, an Apple computer was always some kind of snobbish thing, mentioned only for somebody who believes that ATI 9600 is an extraordinary fast graphic card. In times when there were ATI X1 series. So far, Mac OS X was mentioned to be the OS married with Apple´s brand hardware and Motorola. But, as i call myself a "musician" there was always some interrest in Apple´s products, but, hell, do i have to give 8000$ for ProTools system to make some quality records? And i even dislike the Digidesign ProTools sequencer interface. What probably everybody knows is that Mac has better audio support in OS than windows on PC. And I mean MIDI and audio timing and the care about audio subsystem in platform, not the quantity of Plug-ins and third party instruments. I think the code is far better written than any Redmonder can do. So in short - for me was Windows OS always something like six-wheels-steam-driven-restaurant-drivein-disco-gaming-console. And i always had to make a big number of compromises when I wanted to have a stable system. Choosing the right drivers, right hardware, service packs, etc. I bought some hardware which i thought could be always good for making music with windows, see below. But, let us play a little with this osx86 to see how it works. Got OSX86 and Logic express 7.2 the usual way. I own a RME Fireface 800 too. I can say - till now everything is ok. My friend, an audio engineer follows my tryout with big enthusiasm. And he really knows how much work is needed to make PC- XP DAW to work without problems. With good hardware. He told me, if I success in making my system work, i will have a dream system to make music. Think just about MIDI over LAN, and integrated virtual MIDI ports - integrated in system. When was Microsoft focused on things like that? So, to get finally to the point, I had to use here several cracked applications and I´m violating the apple policy of software and hardware propriety. But what am I doing other than making good marketing for Apple by spreading the good word about Mac OS X and apple´s Logic program? Could Logic be so popular if there were no warez portals and so on? Who would give 1300$ for a try out? And who is so stupid to make money using warez. As a pro-musician, when I´m finished with testing, i will have to buy Logic Audio Pro to continue with my work. And if everything works ok, I´lm gonna do it with great pleasure.... .....Try before buy
  10. Still cannot boot without DVD. I´m going to jump from the bridge now, goodbye fellas, was a nice time. I´m going now. Really. I´m going to jump. Yes. 3....2..........1.......

    GREAT! My Club3D nVidia 7900GT 256 dual DVI works...

    Mac OS X rocks I definetly rebuffed windows when it´s about music making. It´ s far better for it than windows. My other PC has still XP pro. Need games sometime. But now i have ATI x1300 Pro to play games Btw, what´s an vista bad carbon copy How´s going with Your Video card? I think 7300gs has only one DVI.

    how to fix iCal for original JAS 10.4.8 DVD

    Hey..awesome worked for me too. Big THX
  13. The problem is that here are too few toplevel threads. Maybe asking the moderator to open a new one, maybe something like " Problem with booting osx86"? Slowly seems to me that there´s no way to boot without DVD inserted. I posted soo many posts, asking for resolving the problem, and I presume, the couple of kindly users and moderators have more than one os on their machine. Many views and 2-3 replys. It seems like some problem with mbr or gpt or efi, active partition, blessing the correct files the correct way - who knows...There is definetely the correct way when you boot it from DVD - but how to put that on HD? Maybe somebody knows how the DVD boot procedure is going? Is the kernel on DVD or what? What is blessed and why - btw, how? I did 80% of research on this problem alone, reading manuals for fdisk, gpt, bless, installing, try-outs, grub, bootloaders, ecc - without positive result.I have one partition, and it´s active and one operating system - osx86 - Looks like here everybody wants to have 20 OS´s on the machine. And look below . Do i have some exotic hardware? Seems to me i don´t.
  14. I did that already. Chainload +1 and stuff - boot from hd(0,0) and (0,1) and (0,n) - only a cursor blinking
