  1. I have a Lenovo ThinkPad T520. When I select to boot off of the USB drive, the underscore blinks once and then returns me to the boot selector menu. The USB has OS 10.7.0 with Chimera 1.8.0 as the bootloader. System Specs: Motherboard: Intel® QM67 Processor: Intel® Core™ i7-2820QM (2.30GHz, 8MB L3, 1333MHz FSB) Memory: 8GB DDR3 - 1333MHz (2 DIMM Slots) Graphics: Discrete NVIDIA® NVS 4200M (1GB VRAM ) with Optimus™ Technology, Intel® Integrated HD Graphics

    Add Brightness Keys to DSDT?

    I read around for some time on how to add Keyboard Keys of my HP Mini to the DSDT, so OS X can use them. Yet I only found 2 or 3 people saying that they were able to add the Brightness Keys, but I can't find any information or code snippet! I already have an fully working DSDT for my machine, but how to find out the Mapping and what code to add?
  3. Hi! I'm planning on building a Hackintosh, and it is my first time building a computer from scratch. I have taken apart a computer and put it back together successfully quite a few times. Although I have no experience with Hackintoshes, I have been doing by reading. Anyways, I plan on building my Hackintosh into a PowerMac G5 chassis. I have little (very, very little) experience with rotaries and soldering, and no experience with hardware modding. These are the parts I plan on using: Intel DZ77GA-70K Motherboard EVGA GeForce GTX 660 SC 3GB (Yes) Intel Core i7-3770K Processor (Yes) Intel 330 Series SSD - 240GB LG BH12LS35 Lightscribe Blu-Ray Writer Corsair 500W Modular PSU Corsair Vengeance 8GB 1600MHz DDR3 RAM (Yes) Aluminum Apple Cinema Display 20" (Yes) Apple Bluetooth Module Apple WiFi-N Module (Yes) Feel free to make any suggestions as to the parts I'm using. What I'm mainly concerned about is the front and back I/O panel. Can somebody write a step-by-step guide as to how to make the case fully ATX-ready? Is there someone who could also make a cover for the bottom where it has to be cut, and make the cover look Apple-like? Thank you very much.
  4. GUIDE Dell XPS m1530 Mac OSX Lion 10.7.2 This guide is based on my own experience installing OSX Lion. I didn’t hade any experience with hackintosh, so it might not be done the most efficient way. I got it all running in four hours. If you follow this guide, you can probably do it in less then two. My specs are: 2,10 GHz processor (shouldn’t matter) 3GB RAM (shouldn’t matter) Broadcom BCM4315 Wireless card (does matter) What doesn’ t work for me: Microphone is too faint to be called working Files you need: I also give the links to the download inside de tuturial, but for pre-downloading is this the list: ###### http://tonymacx86.bl...lion-using.html Files for /System/Library/Extensions: System:Library:Extensions.zip Files for /Extra/Extensions: :Extra.zip Kext Utility: http://cvad-mac.narod2.ru/Kext_Utility Chameleon: http://www.meklort.com/ (and click on recent builds) OSX Lion Combo Update to 10.7.3 Lets start! Step zero: Make mac with a mac If you don’t have a mac installation, we need to create one. The way I did was installing Snow Leopard first. Just get a retail version of sleopard from some site and follow http://www.insanelym...pic=223470&st=0 till you have it booted. When you have: continue with step 1. 1: Disabling speedstep Disable Speedstep in you bios. If you do not you will get random freezes. Which you do not want during an installation. To do this: 1. Press F2 right after you hit the start button 2. Go to performance settings 3. Disable speedstep 4. Do not enable it again until I say so 2: Installing Lion If you have access to a Mac installation you can use the this guide: http://tonymacx86.bl...lion-using.html. Do a clean install and after step 3 you should come back here. 3: Drivers from custom package, do NOT reboot untill i say so Copy the kexts from the System:Library:Extensions.zip download to /System/Library/Extensions Copy the extracted directory from :Extra.zip to the root of your disk. After that take look at /Extra/org.chameleon.Boot.plist Change the string of Graphics Mode to your resolution. Also check out an other file in de /Extra directory. Open smbios.plist You might want to change the "SMmaximalclock" to your own. Eg for 2,4Ghz, make it 2400. 5: Install kext utility and chameleon Put kext utility in your application directory Run the chameleon installer Run kextutility to repair permissions, then reboot into the bios. 4: Enable speedstep Do step one again, but now you have to enable it offcourse. 5: Updating to 10.7.3 Now you should be able to install de 10.7.3 update. Use the Combo update package from the Apple site. 6: WiFi for BCM43xx If you have working WIFI now, you can skip this step. If you have a Intel wireless chip, you’re screwed. If you have a Broadcom chip do this: To make WIFI work on BCM43xx: Remove the file /System/Library/Extensions/IO80211Family.kext Add the kext of IO80211Family.kext.zip instead Run KextUtility 7: Fix sleep Open a terminal and execute this command: sudo pmset -a hibernatemode 0 Problem is that ethernet will not work after recovered from sleep. Better than no sleep at all. Optional: To speed up your graphics a bit: Google for “Nvidia mac driver” and install the latest version. Remove kexts which cause non fatal errors on bootup: If you start in verbose you see some errors caused by non functional kexts. You can remove the following kexts to get rid of the errors and safe some bootup time. Remove these from /System/Library/Extensions: audioAUUC.kext , applehda.kext. Run afterwards kext utility. I hope you now have a perfectly working install. Leave a reply if you don’t. Thanks to all the people who made this so easy. Edit 19 February 2012: removed ######, because it is not cool. Edit 2 april 2012: new buildbot link and other trackpad/keyboard kext.
  5. Hi all! I have recently installed Mac osx 10.6.6 to my computer using vmware and it is running perfectly!!! I can do system updates, browse the internet, download from the mac app store, etc. But i wanted more. So i decided to go get myself a $50 itunes gift card and update to 10.7 Lion via the mac app store. When i click on the "Buy" button for Lion, i get a message stating: "We could not complete your purchase Mac OS X 10.7 Lion requires a Core 2 Duo, Core i3, Core i5, Core i7, or Xeon processor." The funny thing is, my physical computer is a Core i7. i even fiddled around with the processor and core allocation in vmware workstation and changed it, i went back into osx and it had changed it under System Profiler to: "Quad-Core Intel Xeon" for the Processor name. So I am unsure what to do and need some help! Here is a screenshot in vmware and osx of the system profiler: Thanks Alex

    Elan Touchpad Driver

    Latest There is another work on the same topic in tonymacx86, http://www.tonymacx8...er-mac-osx.html I will have a try tonight or later. Note: they released kexts for Lion and Mountain Lion, source code in https://github.com/EMlyDinEsHMG/ElanTouchpad-Driver/ Status Just started, very beginning(yes, I mean not much functions work by now). For V3, single finger movement and taptoclick should work. It's a development thread for now, not for final end users! If you want to help this topic, please join! Target This thread is focused on Elan touchpad(at least for ASUS laptops), not for others. Code Code Base: https://github.com/AppleLife/VoodooPS2 (Thanks Slice, THe KiNG, AndyV and all people who contributed to VoodooPS2) Relative talk: http://www.projectos...?showtopic=1937 My repo: https://github.com/liangqi/VoodooPS2/ My change: https://github.com/l...21f16bd0dd3e1a5 Note: this change will allow people to build code on 10.7 + Xcode 4.4 and 10.8 + Xcode 4.4, but I only tested the VoodooPS2ElanTrackpad.kext on 10.8. Need someone to verify whether it works on 10.7 or not.

Todo 1. at least by now, we found Apple hasn't released any api for multitouch device, you could find this, /System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/MultitouchSupport.framework/ 2. then what we could do for now, only provide functions which are in IOHIPointing, you can consider it is a mouse device. I will try 2 fingers taptoclick for right button click, and 2 fingers scroll for h/v scroll 3. we should use the settings in System Preferences/TrackPad, at least the "Tracking Speed" 4. And I think current one is "very" unstable, not sure about the reason.... Attachments 1. AppleACPIPS2Nub.kext.zip 2. ApplePS2Controller.kext.zip 3.

  7. Can someone help me? I tried installing using nozyczeks method and when using the installer it kernel paniced. I attached a pic of what it did.
  8. I have 3 Mac partitions: 10.6.8, 10.7.4, and 10.8.3. I was able to display everything at full resolution on 10.6.8 and 10.7.4 with my GTX680 on my 1360X768 monitor via Graphics Mode=1360x768x32 flag with Graphics Enabler disabled in my Boot.plist. I upgraded to a 1920X1080 monitor and now I have an ugly black border around the screen during the bootloader, 10.6.8, and 10.7.4. Example shown below: I have been sifting through past posts and other articles that have addressed remedies towards this issue such as the following: Link 1 (This method didn't work by the way) Link 2 (This method is for AMD GPUs) Link 3 (I have yet to try this) Link 4 (I have yet to try this) Editing the BIOS of the GPU seemed about the only promising method I seen available but I am apprehensive about it because it could accidentally brick my GTX680. I wanted to get the opinion of members who have experienced this problem and to find out whether any of these options I have listed you would suggest or should you have some options of your own that you would recommend to me as well. Any feedback is greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.S/N: 10.8.3 boots fine in native resolution
  9. It took me days to figure out how to get a fully working (sleep included) 10.7.2 install on my (base) lifehacker build...no single post made a step by step solution for me so I'm posting it here in the hopes that it'll help you out... Let's start with my hardware: Processor: Intel Core 2 Quad 2.83Ghz Mobo: EP45-UD3P Rev 1.6 RAM: 4GB Patriot DDR2 SSD: OCZ Vertex 3 (highly recommended for speed) GFX: Gigabyte AMD Radeon 6870 (Swapped out my 9800GTX for this card so I could get native HDMI working...pretty sure there aren't any issues, other than the infamous DVI-HDMI issue with lion and the 9800 so my guide should still work) Step 1: It was a mess trying to upgrade directly from my 10.6 install so I made a clone of my working 10.6 HDD to another spare drive I had using Carbon Copy Cloner. We'll come back to this in the later steps of this guide... Step 2: Use Kakewalk 4.1.1 for this board. AGAIN use Kakewalk. It has native support for the EP45-UD3P which helps with the DSDT stuff Step 3: Follow the directions for a CLEAN install of 10.7.2. You'll have to format your drive but don't worry because you have all of your data cloned on that spare drive mentioned in step 1. Step 4: The Trendnet Gigabit card is no longer recognized in 10.7, but if you have the rev 1.6 mobo, the ethernet ports are recognized so you're good to go. Step 5: Once you have internet, download [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] 4.1.0 Lion Edition from TonyMac86's site. http://tonymacx86.blogspot.com/2010/02/[url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url]-ultimate-post-installation.html Step 6: Launch [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] and ONLY check the following: System Utilities Realtek ALC8xxx (Make sure everything in the dropdown menu of this box is checked) Lnx2mac's Realtek Gigabit Ethernet 2.0.6 for 10.7 IOUSBFamily Rollback Click Continue and let [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] do all of the heavy lifting. Install the Lnx2mac driver and Restart. Your sound issues should be resolved by now. If not, run [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] again only checking Realtek ALC8xxx Step 7: To resolve the sleep issues (the biggest headache EVER!) download sleep enabler from this link: http://www.osx86.net/view/1771-sleepenabler_for_10.7.1_-_10.7.2_latest_beta.html Here's the most important part: Drag the full Sleepenabler.kext folder to /System/Library/Extensions. Your computer will ask you for your password...so enter it. Run Kext Utility and restart. Step 8: Plug in your cloned backup of your 10.6 system and use migration assistant (/Applications/Utilities) to transfer your apps, settings, BG, etc. Step 9: Once your transfer is complete, go into your main HDD drive and delete the folder "Extras (from your old...something or other)." This just gets rid of the old extras folder and causes less confusion for your hack. Step 10: Enjoy. App store works, iTunes Matching works, MacZfs works...and is glorious for software Raid 5 storage, SLEEP WORKS...HELL YEAH!!! (Wakeup from network, timed sleep...it all works) Hopefully this helps you guys out. Let me know if you have great success...it'sa niiiiice.
  10. I have a challenge, to install Mac OS X 10.7 Lion on HP Pavilion dv7. I have installed successfully 10.6.3. Later upgraded to 10.6.8, but after this upgrade I have lost High Speed USB.

  11. Alright guys (and gals . I've been searching these forums for quite some time now (at least two months) trying to find a legit fool-proof method of getting full recognition and power out of my GTX570 HD. I'm SURE I'm not the only one. Currently, using the official 10.7.3 kexts and the combo enabler from Mul+1B3ast, I bench at ~800 in Luxmark; very disappointing. I've seen a few people post recent success stories of far higher scores, but not how they did it >_< Conducting a search through the forum for "GTX570" gets me a bunch of old methods prior to 10.7.3 or a bunch of hopeless people in my shoes, as it would for anyone else frantically searching for a solution to their 570. So, I'd like to call out to all those reading this who have managed to enable their 570's or similar and gotten beautiful benches to please share your methods. Don't be shy! If someone posts one thats ALMOST identical to yours aside from one step, POST IT ANYWAY! You never know if that one detail could be the difference from 800 Lux or 7000 Lux for someone else! Let's make the post that tops the search bar with a method to get any GTX570 working in no time flat! My specs, for reference, are: ASUS Sabertooth X58 GTX570 HD 12GB RAM i7 950 Everything works perfectly except my card.

    Asus U50Vg Post Install - Help

    Hello For the first time I got OS X to run (almost) perfectly on the Asus U50Vg. I even think I am the first one on the internet with os x running on this laptop. So here it goes: What works: Audio (Headphone Jack, Internal Speakers, Internal Microphone) Camera Ethernet Wi-Fi Bluetooth Card Reader Geforce G105m (Full QE/CI) Keyboard (FN Keys) Touchpad *Sleep Native Power Management What doesn't : Wake (Screen won't turn on) Already tried with darkwake=0, removing NullCPUPowerManagement, patching AppleRTC, and that sort of stuff. I would really appreciate if someone could help with the wake problem, and check if my DSDT needs some fixes to help me with the wake issue and to get a more vanilla install. I will attach my dsdt, smbios, boot.plist, and ioreg. Thanks Sorry if there is any mistake, english isn't my native language. Asus U50 DSDT.zip

    Am I screwed?

    I'm not sure if this is in the right section, if I'm not could a mod please point me in the right direction? I was trying to make a hackintosh laptop for myself and eveything was going fine until I got to the part where I needed to "Use pacifist to extract mach_kernel from “OS X Install ESD/Packages/BaseSystemBinaries.pkg” and copy it to the root of your USB drive (note: this is in the attachment)" Being the dumbass I am, not reading all the directions, and having no idea what to do, I thought that I had to install BaseSystemBinaries.pkg. So I double clicked and installed the BaseSystemBinaries.pkg for Mavericks on my iMac running 10.6, 10.7 or 10.8 (the right escapes me right now). After it finished installing I figured out I was supposed to use a file I didn't download yet so I tried to open chrome but all it did was bounce a few times then stop. Then I tried safari and it did the same thing, so I kept trying different apps but everything showed up on the dock bounced a few times then quit. Then opened the folder that had the Mavericks installation in it and doubled clicked the installer hoping to fix whatever I had done. After it bounced a few times it went away and stayed like it had been for about 5 minutes then the gray background with the spinning circle came up on the screen. I waited for about 10 minutes to see if anything would happen and nothing did so I tried to reboot it, it went normal except it just stayed on the gray screen with the apple and spinning circle. I even tried booting into safe mode but the same thing happened. I don't know what to do or how to fix it, if someone here could help or point me in the right direction that would be awesome. Thanks

My Configuration: Motherboard: ASUS M4A88T-M-LE [ 880G Chipset ] Processor: AMD Phenom II X4 955 [ Black Edition ] Graphics: ATI Radeon HD 5670 [ 1GB GDDR5 ] RAM: Corsair Vengeance 2 x 4GB Procedure: 1. SATA Mode changed to AHCI from IDE This is for people facing Still waiting for root device error. Changing SATA mode to AHCI corrects it. 2. Took out a RAM Hackintosh has problems with Dual Channels most of the time . 3. Suspend mode changed to S3 from AUTO I am not sure about this. I was reading about a successful AMD installation with this configuration. But I saw no difference yet. 4. Booted from DVD with Boot: "Kernel Cache"=\amd arch=i386 -v Successfull discovery of all 4 cores of the CPU and 4GB RAM. 5. And this is where I get Stuck: USBMSC Identifier (non unique): 000000264001 0x424 0x4060 0x182 USBF: 54.274 AppleUSBOHCI [0x7fdb800] :: CheckSleepCapability - controller will be unloaded across sleep Check screenshot for details of the error message with complete install log. Friends, Requesting assistance with these issues. Kindly post your problems with installing Mac OS X Lion on AMD in this thread.
  17. I have successfully installed lion 10.7.2 onto my AMD machine. A machine that is HIGHLY unsupported and has a motherboard that basically no one else has. Everything works perfectly. I want to give back to all those that helped me, and generally helped my community, so here is a guide that hopefully a few of you will use. This is when using 2 separate disks per operating system. So if you are wanting to dual boot on ONE hard drive, DON'T follow this. This guide also shows you how to install it entirely WITHOUT a spare Mac machine. What you are going to need: iAtkos L2 install DMG (google) A 4.7Gb DVD A windows machine TransMac (HERE) A 8GB flash drive (explained later) Bronzovka's Kernel - I forgot which one I used so I uploaded it (HERE) PowerISO (or any equivalent ISO burner that can burn DMG) Additional installation things like Voodoo and network (HERE) Let's start: Firstly we need to prepare our installation disc. Launch TransMac (as administrator), and then click 'Open -> Open Disc Image'. Open the iAtkos L2 DMG you have downloaded. Right click on the image and click 'expand'. A dialog box will pop up asking you where to put it - put it on the desktop for easier access. That will take a bit of time to complete. Once completed, open that image with TransMac, the same way you did with the original DMG. Now we are going to add our kernel. Right click in the space of your expanded image, and click 'Copy Here'. Navigate to your mach_kernel and paste it there. Overwrite it. Now open up PowerISO (as administrator), and insert a blank disk. Use DVD-R, its the safest bet. Then click burn, and select disk image. Select the image that you expanded (so NOT the iAtkos L2 one). Let it burn. It doesn't matter what speed really (I did mine on the top speed and it was fine) Our media is finished! Next (Optional): This is my recovery option. Due to having 1000 problems with Macintosh before, I created a 'recovery' flash drive. This basically had every patched kernel there is, a few kexts that I knew were sometimes faulty in the installer and a fresh copy of the installer (copied out with TransMac). This saved my skin after I updated to 10.7.5. You don't NEED to do it, but rather be safe than sorry, right? Install: Restart your Windows machine (do a full restart, don't hit the button). Go into your BIOS and make sure the following is done: Chipset -> Northbridge Configuration -> SATA Mode -> AHCI Boot -> Boot device priority -> (your dvd drive) Now save changes and exit. Boot: Once you pass the AHCI initialization and the 'post' screen start hitting F8 furiously. You will be greeted with the iAtkos L2 boot screen. Make sure the disk is highlighted (use your arrow keys to navigate), and type in the following flags: -v USBLegacyOff=Yes npci=0x2000 These worked for me and my motherboard, they may be different. If they don't work play around with them a bit. Once the disk has been loaded its gonna take about 10 minutes to load everything. It will 'seem' like its hanging on "...IO.Bluetooth..." but it really isn't. Just give it time. A lot of time. Go play with your dog or cat while you wait. If all is okay you will enter the installer (WOOOO!) Install: In the menu bar of the installer select Utilities -> Disk Utility. Let it load up. Select the hard drive you want to install (be careful not to select your Windows hard drive), and then erase it or partition it. I created a 20Gb partition called 'SAFETY' and a 140Gb hard drive called 'MAC'. SAFETY hard drive is used for, well, safety. I install any new updates and kexts on my safety hard drive before I apply them to my main. Once that is done quit the utility and continue with the installer. You may customize but I honestly left it how it was. Hit install and go have some ice tea. Once the install is complete DON'T DON'T DON'T restart. I always hastily restarted and forgot about my kernel. Go to Utilities -> Terminal. Type in the following: cp /mach_kernel /Volumes/Mac Mac was the name of my Mac hard drive, change it with whatever you called it. First boot: Now we can boot properly. Go back into your bios and set the boot device to your Mac hard drive. Save changes and exit. Once you have gone past the 'post' screen hit F8 furiously as before. You will once again be greeted by iAtkos (what a nice fellow). Select the mac hard drive this time and type in the EXACT same flags you used for your installation. If everything is okay you should boot up fine! Follow the first-time set up and see how beautiful your little Mac looks. Changes: We now need to make a few changes to make our startups a little more easy. In finder search for 'champlist'. Load it up. It will bug you about the internet if there is none, just dismiss it. Select configurations. At the bottom click the bar where it shows the directory of the boot.plist. Make sure it is set to your hard drive and NOT the disk. Tick the following: -v (verbose mode) npci=0x2000 Also hit 'Edit as text' and type in the following after the last <string><key> combination. <string>USBLegacyOff</string> <key>Yes</string> Now you can click save. It will ask you for your password. Enter it and you're done. (This will remove the need to have to hit F8 furiously every time you boot. I also include -v [its not pretty], but its good to see that everything is loading properly). You will also need to install VoodooHDA to get audio working. Install it. You also need to install RTGMac to get the ethernet port working as well. Success! Your Macintosh should be working 100% perfectly now. Optional - Update: Lots of applications will not work unless you have 10.7.4 / 5 installed. So it is in your best interest to do so. Download the massive update and lets get to it. Firstly, download THIS kernel. It is bronzvoka's 10.7.5 kernel. Mount the update DMG and start it. Once it is complete DON'T DON'T DON'T restart. Copy the kernel you just downloaded to the root of your Mac drive. Also make sure it is named mach_kernel and not anything else. Reboot and everything should work just fine. There you have it. A fully working Macintosh install. This will be stable enough to use as your main machine. I am a web developer and am now using Macintosh to develop rather than my Windows. It is far better. My specs, just for reference: AMD Athlon II 3.3Ghz BIOSTAR A780L ATI Radeon HD5770 4Gb DDR2 RAM Feel free to post any problems you may have. I will be happy to help! Goodluck!
  18. Hi all. I am very new to the Hackintosh community. I figure my laptop had great specs to run OS X on it. So I started with attempting to get Snow Leopard to run but ran into issues trying to get to 10.6.8. I saw a forum that said it was best to just attempt a clean install of Lion 10.7 so that is what I have been trying to do the last few days reading countless forums for assistance. This is where I am: Computer specs: 2nd generation Intel Core i3-2330M Processor( 2.20GHz 1333MHz 3MB) AMD Radeon HD 6470M 1GB 4.0GB PC3-10600 DDR3 SDRAM 1333 MHz Emerald Lake Fab1 Motherboard (H65 Chipset) *BIOS is up-to-date AHCI set in my BIOS options I followed this to make the USB bootable Lion install http://themacmob.com/how-to-create-a-bootable-hackintosh-ready-lion-usb-drive/ The bootloader that I installed is not booting the USB automatically, so since the iAtkos DVD uses Chameleon 2.1svn-r1650 I figured I could use it to boot. It looked promising but this is where I am hung up; Boot with no flags flashes a message of "Unsupported Card!" Boot flag -v shows "Device in Slot--1" Boot flag -x -v shows "DSMOS has arrived" (Pics attached) I have tried many other flags but at this point I would really like some assistance. I have looked into starting to edit my DSDT file but need help since I'm so new to this. Pointers please!!
  19. Basically I need some help. What would you reccomend, what do you think is the best cheap laptop to hackintosh? The end goal is running 10.6.8 - 10.7 with Logic Pro 9 as the main application running, wifi and everything else is less important to me. Thanks.
  20. Hi guys Video Decode Acceleration is the framework provided by Apple to allow programs to accelerate H.264 media through hardware. There has been currently no known way to achieve this, but it has been found! ALERT! If you already have VDA, don't even bother reading this, unless you have another machine waiting. Go here to download a tool to check: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/261104-check-for-hardware-video-acceleration-capabilities/ Guide for GPUs: There are three things your setup must satisfy to achieve VDA. 1. Hardware Support Not all graphic cards have a video decoder that can accelerate H.264 decoding. Because OSX only provides H.264 decoding and no other codecs, these cards cannot accelerate the decoding of any video at all. (That does not mean they cannot QE/CI) 2. Software support Your graphic card must already be set up with QE/CI running. This can be the AppleIntel****** drivers, NVDAN***/Natit/NVEnabler or AMD***. If your card is one of those unfortunate ones without QE/CI, you cannot achieve VDA at all. Examples: Intel 4500mHD, Intel HD Graphics 2000, Intel HD Graphics 2500 3. The correct version of OSX Starting point: Using 10.4 or 10.5 cuts you off VDA entirely. VDA was introduced with Snow Leopard, and I recommend you use 10.6.6 and beyond. The other part is that each OSX version has a slightly different Video Acceleration driver depending on the times of release. i.e. Snow Leopard's driver does not contain MacBookPro8,1 which was released after it, but Mountain Lion's driver has it. 4. The right SMBIOS This is the key to achieving VDA. How so? The Video Acceleration driver bases the need to accelerate based on the Mac models which contain certain VDA-approved cards, such as the NVidia GeForce 9400M or NVidia GeForce 320M. In the VDA reference document, approved cards range from certain NVidia cards, AMD Radeon HD cards and Intel HD Graphics. For the NVidia cards, I have confirmed that VDA is not restricted to the ones listed. Now to point 4: The Video Acceleration driver is not a kext, but a bundle. It is known as AppleVADriver.bundle. THE FIRST STEP TO THIS IS TO DOWNLOAD (from the App Store or otherwise) AN APP KNOWN AS MacTracker. If you have an NVIDIA (Fermi/Titan ones unknown, these are mainly the four/three digit models e.g. 9300 GE) card: You are extremely lucky. Just open up MacTracker, look for a model that has a 9400M, and simply use that SMBIOS. This works even with my desktop card 9300 GE. Examples are iMac9,1, Macbook5,1. If you have a GMA 950 or GMA X3100: These cards only contain a MPEG2 decoder which can only be used in Windows (maybe Linux). OSX only provides a framework to accelerate H.264. If you have an Intel HD Graphics 3000: The right way to use this card is to use a MacBookPro8,1, 8,2 or MacMini 5,1 or 5,2 SMBIOS. Also, stay away from Snow Leopard. Anything Intel card beyond Intel HD Graphics 3000: You should use Mavericks. Or a very updated version of Mountain Lion. Try to stay away from Lion. AMD Cards: Not sure about this at all. However, it is recommended that you use the absolute latest OSX available (10.8.5 at writing time). See below. Non-supported cards: Intel cards after X3100 and before Intel HD Graphics (Arrandale first-gen i5). For first-gen i5 HD Graphics, there is a guide on this forum about getting QE/CI and there are some framebuffer patches. The AppleVADriver.bundle also lists the MacbookPro6,1 and 6,2 that contained this cards. As H.264 decoding in dual-GPU Macs occurs on the weaker GPU, use these SMBIOSes. S3 Graphics, VIA. As I said, no QE/CI entirely negates VDA. What SMBIOSes are VDA-supported? Go Into the Info.plist of AppleVADriver.bundle (in S/L/E) and see the System Support dictionary. Then, use MacTracker and find a model that best suits your card. The cards that were dropped as OSX progressed from 10.6 to 10.9 were ones that could not decode H.264. As such, using the latest OSX possible allows for more models with supported cards to be included in AppleVADriver.bundle. Note! I do not know how AppleVADriver works and when doing this, I swopped my SMBIOS rather than add the one I was using to the Info.plist. If your model is really impossible to find, or is a newer card, as long as you have obtained QE/CI, just use one from the same brand.
  21. Could anybody advise best motherboard of mini-itx formfactor fully copatible with OS X 10.7?
  22. I installed Hackintosh 10.7 using myHack , but after installation was done, This message showed up " Before You Begin, There is no keyboard connected " , I use a P/S 2 keyboard. also when I boot up it Gives me this error " Boot0: error " .
  23. This guide will include flashing a custom bios, I take no responsibility for any damage done because of a bad flash. If you are uncomfortable flashing a Bios please do not follow this guide. There will be three parts for this guide, first will be flashing the unlocked BIos to allow single GPU operation. The other two are for configuring the Bios and intalling OS X one for using only the nVidia GPU and one for using the Intel GPU. I take no credit for the first part, credit goes to user svl7 on Techinferno, therefore I will be linking to the forum post. To flash the custom Bios, go to http://forum.techinf...os-a07-a08.html. FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS. (Also safety first, never flash Bios on battery, use AC power) In case Bios recovery is neccesary: http://forum.techinf...y-possible.html (follow guide in post #2, but rename file PALB064.fd) Install guides coming soon, for now this will be for those who already know what to do from here.

  25. I successfully installed Lion on my computer, but there is a problem.. When installing Lion from app store media via [url=&quot;http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/&quot;]#####[/url], there is a 3 sec. static and 1-2 sec. normal screen.. I didn't see any similar problems so I don't know what's the cause. Here I show you: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=65IPlCX7-08 I tried with other custom builds but everything turns same after the first reboot. I'm sure my graphic card isn't at fault at this.. Because in Windows no problems occur at all.. I tried several settings with [url=&quot;http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/&quot;]#####[/url] but to no avail.. Is this about BIOS settings?If so what should I do. Here this is the static: And this is closeup:
