  1. Okay, I can do this. My Snow Leopard drives are vanilla, no boot or kext files, but when I did install "Lion" I had trouble getting it to boot unless I directly installed MB{censored} onto the Lion drive itself. I should be able to make a boot stick that accommodates "Snow Leopard" "Lion" and "Mountain Lion". MB: Gigabyte EP45-UD3P CPU: Intel Quad 9600 Ram: 8 GB Video: NVIDIA GeForce 9800
  2. 10.7.4 works great, even sleep works well. My extra folder is on the "Lion" drive itself, I have four hard drives, Snow Leopard is on one and two, Windows7 on three and "Lion" on hard drive four. Can I just download the "Mountain Lion" installer and upgrade 10.7? I appreciate any easy solutions. Kind regards, Barnabas
  3. I tried this on my EP45-UD3P without success. When I try wake it will go into a loop of shutting down and powering up.
  4. Actually all you are changing is the cosmetic appearance of what speed your ram is running at. Those fixes do not change the actual speed. You need to change the memory multiplier in the CMOS setting. I have 1066 but only 800 was being reported in the Mac OS and in the BIOS/CMOS. I changed it there and it is now running at the desired speed.
  5. Thank you for the replies, I appreciate it. Will the DSDT auto patcher modify the DSDT automatically? I guess it's time to find out how to use it. Will sleep work with a modified DSDT? I'm not using HDMI with my 9800 video card but everything seems to be working well. Do you recommend using the latest Chameleon boot loader? I'm using a Dell mini 10V to reply to this, 10.6.4. It's a great little netbook. System: Gigabyte EP45-UD3P CPU: Core 2 Quad 3GHz Graphics: GeForce 9800 GTX+ 512MB Ram: 4GB
  6. I currently have two USB sticks that boot my hackintosh. One is Chameleon and the other is BootThink. My objective is to boot into the current Max OSX with sleepenabler working. I am a graphic artist and I would appreciate any assistance. 1. I currently boot into 10.6.4 and sleepenabler works fine along with everything else. 2. On my other drive I have 10.6.6 and can't find a version of sleepenaber that works, but it boots and all of my apps work fine. 3. I feel as though I need to update to a newer bootloader for future updates, etc. System: Gigabyte EP45-UD3P CPU: Core 2 Quad 3GHz Graphics: GeForce 9800 GTX+ 512MB Ram: 4GB
  7. Thank you for your suggestions, I will give them a try. I just downloaded a new DSDT specific for my EP45-UD3P, version F9. I'm not sure if I need to upgrade my bios. Can I just drag/copy the DSDT into my USB boot drive? Thanks for your help.
  8. I've been running 10.6.4 without problems. Whenever there was an update, I would find a new sleep enabler kext and be done with it. But I can't find one that works properly. I'm using Chameleon 2.0 RC3, everything extremely stable in 10.6.4. Gigabyte EP45 UD3P CPU Intel Quad 9660 8 GB RAM
  9. I tried the Sleep Enabler, no kernal panics in 64 bit, but it will not wake from sleep.
  10. That would work great with BootThink. I am a newbie here, my computer is sucking it's first thumb drive, LOL. I had to make some MB adjustments, thought they weren't nececessary since I was migrating from the EFI-X. But the SATA RAID/AHCI MODE was disabled, I set it to [AHCI] and the thumb drive booted, no more hanging with the spinning wheel & Apple logo. I think I could have created a bootable USB stick the 1st time if I had the MB set correctly. My new question is: 1. SATA RAID/AHCI is an important setting for the USB drive to boot, why? 2. ACPI SUSPEND TYPE, is it an important setting as well?

  11. I am new to this also. There is a post here in this form called "Alright, I give up!" which lists what to download. I installed the BootThink and downloaded his extensions. What made it imperative for it to work for me as to make a change in the MB bios, SATA RAID/AHCI MODE needs to be set as [AHCI].
  12. Thank you Elmangomez Our hardware is very close. I am using the BootThink and have success so far, seems like my CPU Temp is running a little higher with this boot, not sure why. I would appreciate if you could send me your Extras folder. I hope to learn how to tweak at some point.

  13. My thanks to EFI-X Users: Knotty has a wry sense of humour, although I am struggling to make something work I did need some relief almost as much. I know next to nothing about kext files, boot0 and the like. But I did find on another post here about using BootThink and someone added additional boot files, and Leo and SL extensions that I could download and guess what? I am now booted from my 1GB USB stick despite my inadequacies. Even though the extensions I am using are for a different MB, it is very close to what I have. I do own a retail version of Leopard & Snow Leopard upgrade. I plan to acquire a 16GB stick if necessary to install SL sometime this weekend or next. This can turn into a hobby!

  14. First, thanks to anyone who may be of help to me. I purchased a computer from quocomputer, its a quad 3GHz with a Gigabyte EP45-UD3P MB along with all other hackintosh compatible hardware. It's very stable, never had a system crash. But it uses the infamous EFI-X thumb drive. I have tried using the Chameleon installer and got as far as booting from my thumb drive, choosing the already installed OSX 10.5.8 operating system, seeing the Apple and the usual spinning wheel underneath. After about a minute I get a circle with a line through it (now allowed). My objective is to build a boot USB stick that I can use to boot into Leopard and also Snow Leopard. Thanks again
