Snow Leopard on Gigabyte Mobos

Dear MaLdOn,

 

I've just built a new configuration with the following specs:

 

- EX58-UD4

- i7 960es @ 3,2GHz (origin, 133x24)

- GTX285

- 2GB DDR3 1333

- DSDT patched (it says it is) with autopatcher (extracted as you mention in your very good tuto)

- Last Chameleon

- Combo update 10.6.8

 

Everything is ok but only with the "cpus=1" option, or I get cpu panics on startup (at the end of loading or just a few seconds after beeing logged, or when I open Safari...)

 

I've tried different options in Chameleon: busratio to 12 (as I saw in another post), 20, 24 (which is for 3,2GHz), NullCPUPowerManagement, but I still get KP.

 

3 questions:

 

1- Is there a problem in my DSDT.aml?

 

2- When "cpus=1" is enabled, are all cores working? (seen as 3,2GHz Intel Core i7, 1 CPU, 4 Cores, but only 1mb L3))

 

3- Could you solve my problem :D ??? Thank you :P

 

I joint my extra folder and a screen capture

 

 

 

 

1- No

2- Only one

3- Try MacPro4,1

 

The boot was ok with MacPro4,1 Extra, but after a few seconds, I got a KP:

It was a bit long to write but I hope it is worth it :D

During these KPs, CPU number is no always the same

So, what do you think of it MaLdOn?

Thank you again! ;)

 

Edit: the bug is an old nightmare now! I ommitted to mention that I also installed a PCI wifi card that worked well with my old macpro under 10.6.7 (Linksys DWA-547). I noticed that KPs arrived just after the initialization of airport, or when I launched Safari, so I removed it and now everything is OK D:

Do you think there is a solution with that card, or do you have another one to suggest me? (I really need a wifi connection)

Thank you MaLdOn and sorry for the time you spent to help me ;)

I'm hoping the use of a DSDT will save me from having to reconfigure the BIOS settings everytime I reboot. (Which is quite a bit more frequently now on 10.6.7 due to KPs when using WebKit-based browsers.)

 

But I'm unable to get Auto-Patcher to compile the code for my K8NSC-939 (generated using the "Generic" extractor).

 

It displays

 

[Line 2379 type Error message String must be entirely alphanumeric (_NVRAIDBUS)]
[Line 2379 type Error message _HID string must be exactly 7 or 8 characters (_NVRAIDBUS)]

 

Any info on correcting this is greatly appreciated.

:blink:

Ok.

 

Complete novice here.

 

I have GA EP35 DS3L with Core 2 Duo and Asus ATI HD 5670, output via DVI to one monitor and VGA>DVI cable to another.

 

System comprises three HDDs using MBR to dual boot Win 7 and up until recently OSX 10.5.7 with Chameleon RC4 (using ATI 3650 which has been replaced). SL drive has four partitions: OSX 10.5.7, then SL install, then a NTFs partition and then an empty space which Disk Utility refuses to format.

 

Used Iatkos S3 V2 (selecting Chameleon RC5; not loading Sleep or Voodoo HDA) to install SL and upgraded to 10.6.4 from combo update.

 

Problems:

 

1. Can't get rid of RC4 loader from 10.5.7 install.

 

2. EDIT: Sorted out the partitioning, but wondering whether I can format the drive as GUID and still dual boot with the other MBR drives.

 

3. Tried to get HD 5670 working (using ATI Framebuffer and 5000 controller) but ended up with two black screens

 

4. First attempts to update to 10.6.6. resulted either in blank screens or in messed up grey screen.

 

What do you suggest?

Hi guys,

 

This would be my first post here... :P

 

I have this configuration right now:

 

Gigabyte G31M-ES2L rev. 2.0

Nvidia GF 9600 GT 512 MB

3GB DDR2 800MHz RAM (1+2GB)

Intel C2D E5400 CPU @ 2.7GHZ

Samsung SATA 320GB HDD

Samsung WriteMaster SATA DVDRW

 

I was searching the web in the last 3 days to find a complete solution how to make a good hackintosh from this computer (I've started to really fed up with Windows 7 and I plan to buy a real Mac later).

 

I know that the ethernet controller doesn't work with this mobo (I've found a kext file here for it but I don't know how to really use it).

 

Can someone write me what to download from the first post and how to use them?

 

I really appreciate your help.

 

Thanks for everyone! :(

HD is only for the Snow?

use GUID

 

Thanks for your response.

 

I backed up the 10.5.7 install and will erase it then install SL in its place on first partition.

 

Are you saying I should wipe the whole drive and format it GUID and re-partition first? If I do so will my Win7 drives under MBR still boot?

double click in Kext Utility

Thanks for your fast response.

But I don't really know which one sould I use from the listed 'Extra folders' and 'Boot CDs' listed in the first post.

And all the other stuff?

 

Anyone with G31M-ES2L rev 2.0? :(

Thanks Mate! ;)

 

Where sould I put the "GraphicsEnabler=Yes" string?

 

Use it with Chameleon RC2 or put it into the "com.apple.Boot.plist" file?

 

What is the proper code for "com.apple.Boot.plist" ?

 

<key>GraphicsEnabler</key>

<string>y</string> ?

 

After or before the "Kernel Flags" key?

 

Thanks

send me DSDT

 

I hope this is the correct object. DSDT Auto-Patcher had no option I saw of to save the extracted DSDT, so I had to use another app (which had no such option either, but I was able to locate some temp files it left behind).

And many thanks for your time and effort.

Thank you for posting this thread.

It gave me some hope for an older MB that I have: GA-965GM-S2 with E4500 C2D

So I pulled it out installed some hardware on it: 96gb SSD, a DVD multi-drive and 4gb DDR2.

 

Everything seems fine when I boot using hackboot, then I insert my retail 10.6.1 DVD (from my macbook). When it is done loading, it asks for the language preference, as soon as I chose the language, a message pops up saying:

"Mac OS X can't be installed on this computer" and gives me the option of restore from backup or restart

 

I can go into disk utilities if I chose Restore from backup and partition the drive. But I still can't install the OS.

 

My Bios setting is setup for AHCI, not sure if there's anything else I need to do?

is there a possible way to use a backup disc not the retail one? (A home-burn disc, I know that this is B) here!) I don't want to buy it before I know that everything works properly. :angel:

 

I successfully installed iAtkos V7 on my G31M-ES2L rev 2.0, I found a working kext for the NIC but I couldn't set/install the sound properly. (ALC883)

 

I tried voodooHDA, appleHDA. The back panel line out worked fine, after some kexts the line out on the front panel also worked but I can't get the mic work on neither panels... I need the mic for skype, so after google-ing 3 days I've decided to put back Win7. :wacko:

 

Any suggestions how to use or what to use for the audio (It would be nice if I an use both front and back panels)? :D

Hi there, I am using GA H67MA-D2H-B3 with i7 2600k and HD5770 with 8GB and trying to install SL from retail DVD and combo update 10.6.7 but with no succes. I can't start up form the HDD. I think there is a kernel problem. I am getting black screen after restart. I only can reach teh finder and log in from the boot CD with [url=&quot;http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/&quot;]#####[/url] ( [url=&quot;http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/&quot;]#####[/url]) . Even the install CD HackBoot cant boot the Hack i7. What can I do from here...

sorry for the crappy quality...

 

Thanks for all your help MaLd0n

I'm essentially stuck at the same spot after following all the steps...

GA-965GM-S2 with E4500 using hackbootv5/imac9,1

after installing chameleon and patching dsdt and updating to 10.6.7

I get the same screen when trying to boot.

I not overclocking and I've even tried a different video card (radeon 4350) than the onboard video.

When I boot, I get stuck at the same screen as this Renard45's screenshot...

 

Any ideas?
