  1. Intro Hey guys, I'm a linux guy so I'm not afraid to get down and dirty here. With that said my current project is to install osx86 onto this server motherboard and get the 8800gts working with QE/CL. I currently have a working system with Ethernet but no sound or DVD drive. The DVD drive wont reconize and I did not yet install a sound card. I am using the chocolate_kernel and do not need any boot flag to boot up. The real problem is the graphics. If I can get this up I don't care about DVD or sound. Setup Intel Server mobo (I think this is the board) Dual Processor - Dual Core 3.0Ghz 4GB DDR2 - 800Mhz 8800gts 320mb [g80] 320GB - Portable HDD (for sandboxing/installing) iPortable Snow Leopard 10.6.2 - chocolate_kernel Problem The 8800gts 320mb [G80] will not install. No QE/CL, no hardware acceleration. No Front Row. I have tried the following: GraphicsEnabler=yes EFI Studio OSX86 Tools EFI tool GraphicsEnable.pkg (or something rather. I can get the exact name) Deleted Framebuffer.kext & installing the kexts that come with iPortable Snow I have tried 3 different EFI strings that I all found online. iPortable Snow comes with NVinject and NVenabler but they are pkg and I cannot find any documentation on them on the internet. Funny thing about the EFI strings, they install to a directory NOT in Extra/com.apple.Boot.plist . I have to copy the plist from a different directory where EFI Studio and OSX86 Tools spits it out and copy it to the Extras folder. Please help I am 5 days into this and I have lost sleep over it thinking I am 'almost there' with each step. Thanks, any help is greatly appreciated!

Why is that, and can it be fixed? My laptop is Acer Aspire 5738. Video card: nVidia GeForce® G105M If you need more info, just ask. Thank you in advance!

    The good ole Asus G73JH

    Hello insanelymac forums! This is my first post, but have been reading for months and months and finally took the blue pill, err red pill. whichever one I have the Asus G73JH-RBBX05 notebook. (If you are familiar, it is the Best Buy version, but mine is upgraded) Core i7-720QM (Best Buy standard) 1GB GDDR5 ATI Mobility Radeon HD5870 (Best Buy standard) (2) 500GB Seagate Momentus 7200.4 HDD's (upgraded) 16GB Patriot DDR3 1600Mhz RAM (upgraded from 6GB) I am also using Hazards 10.6.2 distro. (I know I know...os x retail os x retail....just didn't have the time to drive out 35 miles to the nearest apple retail store. That's the main part of it... I have followed numerous guides to get OS X up and running on this thing, and if it's one thing I've learned, is that its patience. I could not get any version of i boot to even boot. Just stuck on a blinking cursor on a black screen. Even tried different DVD player, and different settings in BIOS, but nothing was working. I finally got to boot into the installation screen by using Legacy Empire EFI, and booting with boot flags: cpus=1 busratio=28 maxmem=4096 -v It booted, didn't get the dreaded ACPI kernel panic, and installation started! After booting into 10.6.2, barely anything worked...the trackpad, usb's, keyboard, and 1024x768 resolution was about it. I followed a guide to update straight to 10.6.8. Deleted SleepEnabler.kext Copied 4 kext files to my desktop: AppleACPIPlatform.kext, IOPCIFamily.kext, IOUSBFamily.kext, IOUSBMassStorageClass.kext Downloaded 10.6.8 combo update through apples site and installed Downloaded 10.6.8 legacy kernel from somewhere, and installed it, Then used kexthelper.app (search google) and dropped those 4 kext files from my desktop and put in my password and clicked install. I then rebooted. Well, at startup, I got a Kernel Panic for CPU Halted something or rather. Did some more research, and found out by booting with boot flags: arch=i386 -force64 cleared that right up! Booting into 10.6.8 was a success, and I have full resolution, WIFI works after finding a kext for my atheros card, and I don't seem to have any problems whatsoever with the 802.11n, remembering location, etc. everything works flawlessly. Webcam works with photobooth, card reader, hdmi out, the whole thing. Only thing I do miss is my backlit keyboard Although I see some people have gotten it to work with some kexts, but I haven't tried it yet. OS X seems to recognize my 5870 card, and my 16GB of ram also... Does anyone have any experience with this laptop? I am able to use it fully like a native machine. Installing software from the App Store, using my iPhone with iTunes, etc is all good! Anyone have any luck with the trackpad (touchpad) and multi touch gestures, or even scroll wheel on right side of touchpad? I use a mouse regularly... but every once in awhile the pad is good. Has anyone updated to Lion? Is there an advantage?? It's not like I am doing development or anything, just an end-user and a fan of Apple products. I know buy a macbook pro right? No one can beat my pieced together, bough off craigslist and repaired Asus G73JH for 500 bucks plus my 2nd HDD and extra ram! I have purchased an OS X retail DVD for those that hate...I will put it to good use somewhere somehow. Maybe on another machine

  7. Salve a tutti, ho un problema con iPortable Snow 10.6.2. Ho provato a farlo partire da partizione HD (da usb non sapevo come fare e non ho il masterizzatore), ma mi da un Kernel Panic. Come risolvo? Ho usato il kernel di iAtkos S3 perchè mi dava come errore "Can't find mach_kernel" e con il kernel patchato per CPU Atom non funziona (mi mostra per 2-3 secondi il logo apple e si riavvia). Ecco la foto del KP:
