  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.... (11.10.2009 / 15:53)
  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)
  15. Hello AsereBLN, my current dsdt works pretty well, but I'd like to ask you to create one of your custom DSDTs for my GA-EP35-DS4 (rev2.1) Bios F6. The attached ZIP contains the required IOREG dump aswell as a "vanilla" dsdt.aml (via linux) greetings from southwest Germany, Shadow_X
  16. I am using a DeLock 2GB nano USB-Stick (~11 €) (http://www.delock.com/produkte/suche/Delock_USB_20_Nano_Memory_stick_2GB_54219.html) plugged into an USB-Pin Header (~8 €) http://www.delock.com/produkte/suche/Delock_USB_Pinheader_female_2x_USB20_female_-_up_41764.html best regards
  17. A new version of steermouse (v4.0 with x64 support) is out aswell. http://plentycom.jp/en/steermouse/index.html
  18. You can use disk utilitly, but you'll need to make the thumbdrive bootable after doing a restore. "Chameleon-2.0-RC3-r658-bin.tar.gz" contains the documentation and the files needed to do so. (terminal job) EDIT: same goes for Carbon Copy Cloner and SuperDuper!. EDIT2: Unless you own a 2nd mac, I recommend to use ASEREBLN's method.
  19. The dsl file is just an uncompiled version of the supplied dsdt.aml in case somone wanted to have a quick look at it. Now that my aml file didn't work either, it might be the best ask ASEREBLN for help.
  20. I've given it a try aswell, the dstd.aml is based on the latest beta bios (F5g) and the ioreg you've posted. - fixes according to the PDF guide - CMOS fix added - geforce 9800GTX 1024MB added - 889a sound added & fixed (also requires a legacyHDA kext on your USB-Stick) It compiled with 0 errors, 2 warning. The HPET part looks exactly as the one from Mike's file, but I'll upload the file anyway. Also make sure that your BIOS settings look like ones posted here (ignore the pictures that shows voltages and CPU modifiers): http://lifehacker.com/5351553/hackintosh-bios-gallery//gallery?selectedImage=8
  21. Hardware Monitor from Bresnik Software used to be able to show you some vaules, however I am not using it at the moment. In earlier version I needed to enable readout of CPU-internal sensors by running running the command (terminal) shown below once. Apperently Intel changed the internel core temp sensors to ones which are only accurate near max temp. I don't know if the fix below still works, as it vanished from the author's website. http://www.bresink.com/osx/HardwareMonitor.html From bresnik's Hardware Monitor FAQ:
  22. I was using a premade DSDT at that time. In my case I got it work, by creating my own DSDT. (Check Mike's guide)
  23. Open com.apple.Boot.plist on your USB-Stick and change <key>Kernel Flags</key> <string></string> to <key>Kernel Flags</key> <string>arch=i386</string> (I couldn't boot the 32bit kernel until I fixed my DSDT.AML. Unless you have a 2nd Mac to undo the changes, I suggest to keep a backup USB-Stick with your current settings in a safe place.) There is also a different Bonjour Fix available that works in 32bit and 64bit mode: http://www.efixusers.com/showpost.php?p=858&postcount=5 Copy both ifconfig from Mikes posting and ifconfig.command from the Zip attached to this message to /Applications/Utilities then run this in this command in the terminal (autorun during login): sudo defaults write com.apple.loginwindow LoginHook /Applications/Utilities/ifconfig.command
