Ok i just reinstalled osx 3rd time because i cant seem to figure out the problem


after i do a fresh install the harddrive runs fast and smooth (boot osx in like 1min)


but now all i did is follow the guide for broadcom, and callisto 003 and after that this is what happens:



my specs:

comapaq R4000 (laptop)

x200 ( :P )

ata WD 100gb hdd

amd 64 3500+

uphuck's 10.4.9 for AMD


Hmmmm ok I had bad drive performance on my Intel system until I installed the IOATA kext from 10.4.8 but supposedly that only works for Intel not AMD. Not sure if it's an issue with the x200 chipset?


FYI on my Intel system i clock 55 for disk on my AMD I clock 85 (AMD has a Raptor X, it would be even higher but it's running through an SATA->IDE adapter.) Perhaps even when it's "working" it's not even working properly?

I have the same laptop, Presario R4000, I have tried to install ToH and Kalyway, but I couldn't.

Now I m downloading Uphuck 10.4.9_v1.4a, but also exist v1.3a and v1.2a.

Can you tellme which version has used?... maybe an installaton tip? :shock:

Thank you! I just needed to get a little more used to the forum layout to find it... Working perfectly now =)

Next step is to add dual head and dual graphics card support, but that's a whole other story...


Thanx again =)
