  1. Reboot your system (killing Finder might do the trick aswell) and the drive icon labled "client node" will disappear.
  2. Did you add the EHCI USB Fix to your DSDT? Since you are using an older Chipset (X38 with ICH9?) you might also need to add the USB device ID fix, mentioned in this post: http://www.efixusers.com/showpost.php?p=3292&postcount=223 http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=168014&hl= Note: insanelymac is down at the moment....

  3. You mentioned that you have Intel Quad 9550 in a earlier post. If that is the case, you shouldn't need to change the plist at all. (It is set to "Quad Core Xeon" by default which is the closest match)
  4. It is a 32bit driver, but it works with the 32bit kernel. I've tried it out a few days back and noticed that bonjour wasn't able to see my MacPro in iChat using Realtek's driver. However, AFP file sharing seemed to work.
  5. Yes, this command copies the Extra folder to your thumbdrive, but you need to replace THUMBDRIVE with your USB-Stick's drive label. (For me the command would look like this: sudo cp -r ~/Desktop/Extra /Volumes/BootMe) That should do the trick aswell The space between .../Extra and /Volumes... is a seperator. (source_file and target_file) Did you copy that kext into the Extra/Extensions folder currently located on your Desktop? I am just wondering because you mentioned that it wasn't there after drag & drop.
  6. I started to write before you found your own solution (had a little break in between ) If it works for you the way it is, leave it that way (Never change a working system)
  7. You can obtain a DSDT via linux, but you'll still need to fix it (CMOS Reset fix,....)
  8. First a little note, deauthorize itunes before you continue. I've already wasted one of my five activations. (Master reset can only be done once per year) Lifehacker's mkext can be unpacked with a terminal command. Copy the Extra folder to your Desktop and make sure that there is an "Extensions" folder in your Extra folder. Open a terminal and run this command: sudo mkextunpack -a x86_64 -v -d ~/Desktop/Extra/Extensions ~/Desktop/Extra/Extensions.mkextAdd any required kexts to ~/Desktop/Extra/Extensions, then run these commands to adjust the user rights and permissions (Be careful with those commands): sudo chown -R root:wheel ~/Desktop/Extra sudo chmod -R 755 ~/Desktop/ExtraNow we are going to make a new Extensions.mkext: sudo kextcache -v -l -t -m ~/Desktop/Extra/Extensions.mkext ~/Desktop/Extra/Extensions/ It will output a wall of text, and there should be note that the file was created at ~/Desktop/Extra Rename the Extra folder on your Thumbdrive to Old or something like that (you can also delete it, if you have a backup elsewhere). Now run this command: (Adjust /Volumes/THUMBDRIVE) Check your thumbdrive and make sure that all files are in the right folder, then reboot and start OS X in verbose mode (-v).
  9. You will be able to install it using a retail disk (in case of chameleon, the contents of the DVD are copied to a 8GB or larger USB-Stick) and most updates will work without hassle. However like efi-x, chameleon isn't apple. There is always a chance that you'll need to delay an update for a few days until chameleon has been updated or a fix for a certain problem has been found. I used this guide to install it on my system: http://lifehacker.com/5351485/how-to-build-a-hackintosh-with-snow-leopard-start-to-finish The guide is using a different Mainboard, in other words you will need to replace their dsdt.aml with one that is compatible with your mainboard. Premade DSDTs can be obtained here (please read the thread as you'll need to chage a value labled ABLN to 0x0000004f in order to enable sound): http://www.efixusers.com/showthread.php?t=38 A guide how to create your own DSDT (aswell as a different installation guide) can be found here: http://www.efixusers.com/showthread.php?t=103 edit: I am using vmware to run windows xp, but yo should be able to dualboot.
  10. It is possible to set it up the way you want to. The drive that contains the bootloader is HD0 during boot. Your Macintosh HD is most likely hd(1,2). You can also press the "TAB" key to switch chameleon temporary into textmode. It will then show you the needed disk and partition numbers.This needs to be added to com.apple.Boot.plist located on your Boot drive: <key>Default Partition</key> <string>hd(1,2)</string> <key>Timeout</key> <string>5</string> These are the contents of my com.apple.Boot.plist. I've just added it as a reference. <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd"> <plist version="1.0"> <dict> <key>Kernel</key> <string>mach_kernel</string> <key>Kernel Flags</key> <string>arch=i386</string> <key>Default Partition</key> <string>hd(1,2)</string> <key>Legacy Logo</key> <string>Yes</string> <key>Timeout</key> <string>5</string> <key>Wait</key> <string>No</string> <key>GraphicsEnabler</key> <string>Yes</string> <key>EthernetBuiltIn</key> <string>Yes</string> </dict> </plist>

    what about istat

    It won't show you any fan speeds or temperatures apart from hard disk temps.
  12. The kexts are in the attached ZIP. Instructions on how to create a new Extensions.mkext can be found in this thread: http://www.efixusers.com/showthread.php?p=2157#post2157 The command I used to unpack: mkextunpack -v -a x86_64 -d ~/Desktop/mkext ~/Desktop/mkext/Extensions.mkext
  13. @naddie: There is a file called Extensions.mkext on your USB-Drive. (part of Extra.zip) The Extensions.mkext supplied by Lifehacker contains the following kexts: fakesmc.kext, Disabler.kext, IOAHCIBlockStorageInjector.kext, LegacyJMB36xSATA.kext and OpenHaltRestart.kext
  14. Thanks for the DSDT, it works good but I had to reapply the ICH10 USB Device ID hack (only needed for ICH9 based P35 chipsets) to get sleep working again. (USB0,...) The USB fix is also mentioned here: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=168014&hl= I'll send you a little donation later on. Keep up the good work I've added the fixed DSDT.dsl to this post (ABLN is set to 4f)
