  1. THANKS GUYS!!! I set the onboard LAN in BIOS to "on" and it works. The LifeHacker guide had me set it to "off". I can now connect to the net and do software updates. Thanks for the awesome tip guys! mobo- Gigabyte EP45-UD3R bios(F5) CPU- Intel Core2Duo 3.0 GHz 8400 GPU- MSI 9800 GT nVidia 512Mb GDDR3 memory- 8 Gb DDR2 800Mhz network- TRENDnet 10/100/1000 Gigabit PCI storage- 500Gb SATA HD (bootable- no Chameleon USB stick) EFIX 1.0 module- taking a break
  2. Thanks for the reply Peejer. I tried exactly your suggestion but it still does not work. I think I need a specific kext or something for this specific network card and/or mobo. There are other things that need to be addressed, but this network card shutout is the absolute killer. Anyone else have any info or ideas? thanks all mobo- Gigabyte EP45-UD3R bios(F5) CPU- Intel Core2Duo 3.0 GHz 8400 GPU- MSI 9800 GT nVidia 512Mb GDDR3 memory- 8 Gb DDR2 800Mhz network- TRENDnet 10/100/1000 Gigabit PCI storage- 500Gb SATA HD (bootable- no Chameleon USB stick) EFIX 1.0 module- taking a break
  3. Hello All Here. I need some advice on the best way to enable my ethernet internet connection. I used the new LifeHacker SL install for the Gigabyte EP45-UD3P mobo. My mobo is close- it is the Gigabyte EP45-UD3R. My network card is the TRENDnet 10/100/1000Mbps Gigabit PCI Adapter. Both are very close to the exact mobo/ether card combo used in the LifeHacker install guide. I was able to install SL on my drive and it boots up fine. My problem is that I cannot get the Ethernet card OR the onboard ethernet port to be recognized and functional. I am close but still FAR off if I cannot get online. I am sending this from my second hack system- an iDeneb 10.5.7 install. I would greatly appreciate any help or advice you fine people may offer me. Mike- I hope this is the appropriate place for this topic request. Sorry about posting before in the wrong section. My system info is below. Thank you again all who can help. mobo- Gigabyte EP45-UD3R bios(F5) CPU- Intel Core2Duo 3.0 GHz 8400 GPU- MSI 9800 GT nVidia 512Mb GDDR3 memory- 8 Gb DDR2 800Mhz network- TRENDnet 10/100/1000 Gigabit PCI storage- 500Gb SATA HD (bootable- no Chameleon USB stick) EFIX 1.0 module- taking a break
  4. Since we are on the subject of Chameleon flash boot drives, I wonder if anyone here thinks that an E-SATA flash thumb drive could be used. I have seen one or two of these devices online, and they have much faster read times than any USB flash drive. Does anyone here know if these E-SATA thumb drives could be used with Chameleon for a super fast booting EFIX replacement? Just wonderin'
  5. Greetings All. New member here. Pissed at the developments behind no SL support for V1 EFIX users. To Axiom above- I have read that Radeon 3870 cards ONLY work with EFIX if they use GDDR4 memory. GDDR3 memory cards do not work. I have an ATI 3870 unit that works great- but only because it is a card with GDDR4 memory. On a different note- I am intrigued by the possibilities of bypassing EFIX and using Chameleon bootloader for a working Snow Leopard install. Im sure I'll have many questions. This place looks like a great place to find the answers.
