[Solved] Several Problems (Booting, Audio...)


1 post in this topic

Recommended Posts

EDIT: I fixed all issues, everything is working :hysterical:




I don't even know where to start.

I've been spending about a week tweaking and googling and I'm starting to get things together.

I have a few problems, and this is my last resort, I don't usually post on forums...


1. I cant dual boot.

2. I can't get mic or line in to work (I want to record guitar on garageband)

3. Connecting headphones doesn't work. I have SoundSource for switching between speakers and headphones.


Now the first one, I used [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] and Retail 10.6.3 of Snow Leopard, didn't get an error at the end of installation. Rebooted, and this is where things get messy. I lost track of how many different kexts I installed till I got ethernet working and the rest. Right now audio plays at a good loud volume, mouse middle click works, keyboard volume keys work, and iPhone is finally detected (after many trials and errors). Right now to get to the point, I didn't remove my Hard Drive during installation (if it matters), and at first I picked which hard drive to boot from in the BIOS on startup, and it used the [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] bootrom. Then i tried EasyBCD, didn't work...Chameleon wouldn't boot OSX or Windows...did something like add the [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] ISO and now when I boot up, i choose from Windows 7 and Mac OS X. When I click OS X i get the same [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] menu when you have the disk, and can boot into OS X with all the drivers and all working, but its with the [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] bootrom. When i click windows it doesn't boot into it from [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url], rather goes back to the choose from windows or os x screen. Still works though.


This isn't making much sense because i've got loads of problems pilled up. When I install kexts, I think because I'm using the [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] rom, it just over rides them, I tried using voodoohda and all those for audio, and didn't notice a difference...


Any ideas?

How to dual boot properly using chameleon menu?

How to enable mic and auto sensing?



HP Pavilion m9060.uk

Intel Quad Core Q6600.


Audio: Realtek ALC888s


EDIT: The OS's are on different Hard Drives.


Thanks in advance :blink:
