to a t.

 

But now when I try to boot without my [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] disc it brings up the gray screen and says You need to restart your computer.

 

I just rebooted in safe mode. Is there something I should be looking for in this? Or should I re-do [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url]?

Usage

"There are two methods to get your hackintosh up and running. The DSDT method outlined below is the more preferable method as it involved installing less kexts and enables a more 'future proof' system as kexts can be overwritten when performing system updates. However if you cannot find a DSDT file for your system then please select [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] below as this will still allow your hackintosh to run but some extra kexts are needed to get it working properly.

 

NOTE with both the below methods - audio, graphics and network will have to be enabled separately using further options in [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url].

 

Choose one of the following options directly following a fresh installation and update:

 

UserDSDT is a bare-minimum solution for those who have their own pre-edited DSDT. Please head to the TonyMac DSDT Database for a pre-edited DSDT for a large number of Motherboards. Download the DSDT file and the file (such as DSDT-GA-X58A-UD3R-2.0-FE.aml) on the desktop before install.

 

[url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] is a DSDT-free solution for any Core/Core2/Core i system. It installs all of the essentials to allow your system to boot from the hard drive. Some kexts are automatically installed to enable proper shut down, sleep, and other core functionality."

NOTE with both the below methods - audio, graphics and network will have to be enabled separately using further options in [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url]."

 

And from your link is says, "Audio, Graphics and Network will have to be enabled separately."

What choices did you make to to enable Audio, Graphics and Network when you installed with [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url]? If you find a guide that has installed Hackintosh, then it will cover what the correct choices are. For instance I suggested finding out what audio codec your system used. I think that Revisions 1 used Realtek ALC883 and after Revisions 2, used Realtek ALC888. So your revision is 1.3 so you have to check it, because the wrong audio codec ID: means your audio probably won't work.=Vodoohda?

 

[url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] 3.3 comes with a combo Realtek ALC8xx installer. Does that combo installer include the ALC883 codec? No, I don't think so. But it does include the ALC888 codec. So for ALC883, a guide tells you what kext was used to enable audio. Even so, with the combo ALC8xx, one also has to choose the 10.6.2 AppleHDA rollback.

  • For audio issues with LegacyHDA + DSDT, install 10.6.2 AppleHDA Rollback from [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url].

--------------------------------------------

 

10.6.2 Rollback brings up the issue of how old your computer is. I suggested that you use 10.6.0 because 10.6.1 is the last version update that I saw which had your system working, we're now at 10.6.7.

Kexts that were written and worked for 10.6 may not work anymore because Apple makes changes which affect the viability of persisting software. This can be due to kernel changes, but I'm don't know that this is the case here. Kexts for old hardware are not always redone. So it's a good idea to find a guide to install your old video card and note the date and try that kext if offered. Systems work better with DSDT.aml because in part Hackintosh need patched audio logic within the DSDT.aml To use MaLd0n's DSDT.aml Auto-Patcher, I think that the DSDT.aml needs to be created before doing [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] EasyInstall or that will distort the result. One reason that safe mode might boot your computer is that the kext (video driver) is not loaded for your card with a safe boot. Your computer most likely doesn't have the proper kext for your graphics card installed, so it won't work, but safe mode uses a sub-optimal generic driver with usually very limited resolution. [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] uses a generic graphics kext also.

Did you install Chameleon to the hard drive (during MultiBoot install) so that you don't need a boot disk? Also NVenabler?

 

MaLd0n's auto-patcher page http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=235523 has,

alc883

CODE

sudo perl -pi -e 's|\x85\x08\xec\x10|\x83\x08\xec\x10|g' /System/Library/Extensions/AppleHDA.kext/Contents/MacOS/AppleHDA --> <a href="http://www.projectosx.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=465" target="_blank">http://www.projectosx.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=465</a> Look at the Audio and AppleHDA sections.
