Recommended Posts

Hello to all of you!


I have sucssesfully install Hazards Snow Leopard today and updated to 10.6.8 using Legacy kernel for 10.6.8.


Everything works great including games and HD video playback in vlc, the only problem i face is video playback in flash (youtube, dailymotion etc) freezes every 2-3 seconds, if i play youtube videos with html5 everything works great!


problem occours on both chrome and safari!



my build:

Asus M2N-SLI

AMD X2 6000+

nVidia GeForce 9600GT





Just to add: Flash in safari is updated to last one, and in chrome the included one with latest chrome.

What about running Safari in 32-bit mode?

That did the trick for me as I had a similar issue with flash and video playback in Safari on 10.6.8 on my AMD machine (same cpu ^^, but MSI board).

Are you using GraphicsEnabler=Yes, NVEnabler.kext or ATYInit.kext? I had some issues with GraphicsEnabler. Video was

juddering on my 8600 GT, i then used NVEnabler or ATYInit. Both worked fine for me and fixed my video issues. I had some issues too when i moved a window. The content in the windows freezed.

i cant see any 32bit option so i think my computer runs in 32bit mode (i think because of the nforceata.kext)

im using nvenabler.kext

i dont have any other issues with my video performance, for example i play CS:Souce and Batman: Arkham Asylum without a glitch!


so i think the problem is on flash player only! any other idea?


thanks for reply!


Also some Flash games i tried in FB run very well!

Have you done patching yet? ; http://www.osx86.net/desktops/14304-guide-use-more-than-4gb-ram-amd-32-64-bit-apps-working.html

Most of the issues i had were fixed by patching some system files. (I use 64-bit mode aka "-force64")

I would suggest to backup your files before doing that. I don't think it harms your system, but just in case ;-)

Maybe this could also help you : http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=253773


Btw. you can easily check if you're on 32 or 64-bit. Open "Activity Monitor" and have a look on the right side. Does it say "Intel (64 bit)" or just "Intel"?

i dont think i can run in 64bit because AppleNForceATA.kext is 32bit only, whenever i try to boot in 64bit mode it load superVIAATA.kext and i get still waiting for root device! any other suggestion besides 64bit?


(im on 32 bit, i run uname -a and it says kernel i386)

64-Bit mode on AMD isn't good. You can't run 32-bit apps on it. Boot with "arch=i386 -force64". System itself runs on 32-bit, but you're able to run 64-bit apps. You'll probably have to run Safari in 32-bit mode.




EDIT: And you don't need 64-bit compatible drivers too ;-)

      Hello People,
      I have a dual-boot system with both Win10 and MacOS on separate drives. MacOS on an SSD while Windows is on a standard laptop HD. At first it was working fine and I haven't thought much of it but recently MacOS started acting weird. The first thing I noticed was that Clover somehow "forgot" my primary boot drive. This wasn't a huge issue though, as it was booting just fine once I hit enter on the drive selected. I updated Windows 10 to a newer build, however, I did all of this with the SSD drive unplugged just to be sure. Now Windows is working properly while MacOS is having some quite frustrating errors which make it impossible for me to work...
      Anyway, the problems are the following:
      - random reboots
      - apps freeze or won't start just "bounce"
      - internet not working(eventhough every other device connects just fine)
      - system is laggy overall
      I have tried emptying NVRAM int Terminal but I only got a message saying 'Error clearing firmware variables'. I've been searching for solutions on the web for the issue at hand but struggled to find one... I would really appreciate some help.
      I attached my config.plist down below. If more information is required, please let me know.
      Thank you!!

      I would like to try to install Catalina on a 64 GB flash drive, in order to bypass the SATA issue. I so thay many managed to do that on external SSDs.
      Actualy, already tried it. The first step finished ok, just it took much longer. After first booting from the target flash drive from the installing flash drive, it blocked on something like ”installer will create a non-removeable partition”. Perhaps if I waiting long enough, I would have passed that phase, but there were already some 15 minutes since it blocked.

      My wife's early 2009 Snow Leopard iMac has started failing to boot properly and I'm looking for some troubleshooting tips.
      Booting from cold, it gets past the logon screen and starts loading the desktop. It's quite slow at this point, but does load all the (hundreds of!) icons on the desktop. It also tries to re-open Firefox which had a lot of tabs open. Initially it would load a Firefox window but not complete loading the internals. On one boot I think I managed to close Firefox and now it still tries to load but just displays "Firefox" in the title bar with no windows.
      I can initially access a few menus, spotlight, Finder, the dock, but any further action results in a beach ball for these, and they can't be accessed again. I was able to navigate Finder to try to launch Terminal but just it just gave me the beach ball.
      I've left it like this for about half an hour but it doesn't get any further and I have to force shutdown (long press of power button).
      I tried booting to safe mode (holding down S on startup) but the end result was the same.
      I've been able to boot to a live ubuntu USB disk and can access files on the hard disk, so I've started a backup. We have a time machine backup but it's not that recent.
      I'm hoping it's just a corrupt file, but suspect it's the hard disk starting to fail.
      What's the best way to troubleshoot this?

      Is it possible to install an older OS X.5 Leopard or OS X.6 Snow Leopard Hackintosh system on a modern i7 processor PC?  
      I need to to run either of those systems using an Intel Core i7-4770K Quad-Core Desktop Processor on a Gigabyte GA-Z87MX-D3H motherboard.
      I saw this post where someone said “Clover 32Bit should boot Leopard as well, using Legacy mode. You will need 32bit kexts as well.”  https://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/331457-bootloader-for-leopard/ .. Would that be valid advice for me to follow up on for my configuration?  I see that Clover 32 bit is no longer in development.. https://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/317521-good-bye-clover-32/
