  1. install your geforce and use ? -v GraphicsEnabler=Yes ? in your bootflags
  2. cycloholic, i have seen both those in my own attempts, ? boot to your install disk,? at the prompt type ? -v npci=0x2000 cpus=1? see if that gets you anywhere, you may need to expand on those flags or try others. ? also, experiment with your IDE/SATA config in your bios. try setting to non Raid and IDE or ahci on sata2
  3. Personally, I would keep on with those two distros. use N{censored} for amd with more success, havent tried iatkos ml. N{censored} is also slow as molasses to install and get up and going. The reason i say to keep trying is to see if ML will even work out with your system before you pony up the buckage. ? SL is more stable on my system, pretty rock solid in fact since i got my drivers sorted out. ML has still been known to freeze up on me, long waits for apps to load and other "not really an upgrade" features and annoyances. But that doesnt stop me from polishing it up and learning more about it. ? if you have some extra harddrives, try using both. and maybe even attempt the update from 10.6.8 to 10.9 via the apple store. ( but research it first. a straight install of the update will smash your system.) That is something I am still researching. ? Post back your system and you might get more help too.
  4. reboot into safeboot to finish install ? if the script starts, upper right hand corner, let it run. after, ignore NScript. ? get the newest kernel and replace it, I still mean to replace the bootloader myself but havent gotten to it. ? dont know your system but for mine i use bootflags... ? -v -x GraphicsEnabler=Yes npci=0x2000 cpus=1 busratio=12? (safeboot) ? -v GraphicsEnabler=Yes npci=0x2000 cpus=1 busratio=12 ? if that works for you, get textwrangler edit and save your org.chameleon.boot.plist as follows to allow it to boot without entering it in chameleon ? ??? <key>EthernetBuiltIn</key> ?? ?<string>Yes</string> ?? ?<key>GUI</key> ?? ?<string>No</string> ?? ?<key>GraphicsEnabler</key> ?? ?<string>Yes</string> ?? ?<key>Kernel Flags</key> ?? ?<string>npci=0x2000 cpus=1 busratio=12 darkwake=0</string> ?? ?<key>Timeout</key> ?? ?<string>3</string> ? Then download and install VoodooTSYNC for your system. Hopefully that will help avoid freezes. at least for a few more hours. ( love finding problems months old, less resonsibility when I answer them)
  5. Iatkos ML is not AMD friendly from all I have heard. N{censored} installed on mine. took alot of work to get it mostly stablized. Still not nearly as fast or solid as SL10.6.8 . iT has a quirly installer, set your bootflags when you run the install disk ? amd GraphicsEnabler=Yes npci=0x2000 cpus=1 busratio=(yours) UseKernelCache=No ? that will tell the installer to preset those, and install VoodooTSYNC (you will need it) ? when you finally make it to installation screens, use disk utility, setup your OSX journaled drive. leave DiskUtility ? go to customization, ? everything there will be pretty well set up for your processor.? you can leave(or add) ethernet onboard if that fits your motherboard Add VoodooHDA 2.7.3 or 2.8.4 (one or the other for sound) but I would pretty well reserve installing kexts on your own,. this installer is slow as mollases ? click on to install, go out to eat, do some shopping, etc, about an hour later it should say it failed cause it cant restart,... good restart it manually ? boot into the hard drive now with the same flags plus -x to go into safeboot and finish the install. once you make it to the desktop (it may time out on you on the way) wait on it again, N{censored} thang is restoring permissions on the disk, this takes some time... then it offers to run Nscript. I did it once with, did it without, dont know what it does, so im not sayin to use it. ? Now, the fun begins, if you followed all that, and the machined hasnt already locked up, you can start modding things to make ML work. first, reboot into normal mode if you can -v GraphicsEnabler=Yes cpus=1 npci=0x2000 ? That might do it.... if not add more, noting no -x to get into normal mode. ? I Purposely dint install any Nvidia Graphics in customization. Let GraphicsEnabler do its job and it probably will, If you made into normal mode, yours did too Next get your ethernet/internet going. (dunno what you got there) ON to Voodoohda. Go to system Preferences... down on bottom, if you installed either of the choices, you have the Voodoohda panel. open it, Check the drop down list has your sound I/O listed, sometimes it might be in digital or some other thang in your list. set it where you need it drag InputGain all the way up, same with the others (which arent many you can move in my case) if all went well, open up itunes, tune in some solid classic rock and see if you have some sound. Yes? hope so well, off you go. I would shut off sleep modes in energy panel to avoid unnecessary system lockups and hard boots... ? good luk
  6. you need to give alot more information. new install? added new kexts? what version of OSx and type of install. ? all that aside, try a safeboot with some precalls ? -v -x -f cpus=1 npci=0x2000 debug=8 ? insert GraphicsEnabler=Yes and then GraphicsEnabler=No and try both ways if you know your busratio add it, busratio=12 is mine
  7. I am glad I am not the only one that has had this battle ? here was my fix on 10.6.8 http://www.osx86.net/topic/19898-guide-how-to-correct-your-geforce-vram-in-about-this-mac/ ? in 10.8.2 osx pretty well loaded me up with no touching in the kext dpt. GraphicsEnabler=Yes ? I did load some patch for quartz, maybe from MB{censored} , i was in mid battle with alc888 at the time but check that file i modded in 10.6.8 and see if the same can be done on your version OSx ? Using DVI and SVGA, hdmi untested as yet. I do get a problem changing res,. the options are there, but my desktop doesnt come back. forces reboot via power button. Will update on that issue ? I don't recall editing, but my install wasnt virgin. I am using NVidia GeForce GT 430 1gb with a device id-vender id of 0de1 10de? (0x0de110de) ? NVDAResman.kext... excerpt <key>IOPCIClassMatch</key> ?? ??? ??? ?<string>0x03000000&0xff000000</string> ?? ??? ??? ?<key>IOPCIMatch</key> ?? ??? ??? ?<string>0x000010de&0x0000ffff</string> ?? ??? ??? ?<key>IOProbeScore</key> ?? ??? ??? ?<integer>60000</integer> ?

  8. try this. ? If you have already removed the drivers NV* (and i am not sayin to do so ) go to NVidia,. download the drivers for your card-platform install ? Go to the Guide section here on this site,?http://www.osx86.net/topic/19898-guide-how-to-correct-your-geforce-vram-in-about-this-mac/ , follow instructions on installing Natit and enabling Quarts QE/CI ? (the drivers I used on the gt430 are mentioned there)
  9. like offering a custom paint job but you dont know what color its going to be. What does it do
  10. the most used tool in my toolbox. kudos. I highly recommend and promote it often. ? (add me a per file/folder permissions edit feature)
  11. One of my most used tools in both SL and ML. Many thanks. I have noticed one think in ML (may be the version of OSX ML dist I have installed) Extra folders are locked on me for installing and maintenance. ? Additional functions? I would love a function to repair properties-permissions per file(s) such as making a file hidden again or repairing permissions on just one file or folder, as opposed to the entire drive. ? Otherwise, my first sentence says it all. Love it. thanks again.
  12. how about some details on use? images, etc. Will this make my life easier?
  13. My nv GT 450 did its job. After playing with flags I did indeed see OSx ML without Safeboot... seeing it right now. But using GraphicsEnabler=Yes seemed to be more the determining factor. Never had a chance to try my old 6200 tc again, my cousin needed to try to hack it into his real mac pro.
  14. -v?? you shouldnt even see that apple screen on a Hackintosh til you have a stable OSx. (you need to see where it is folding up on you)
  15. and try -v -f? or -v -x but until you are well into a fully stable system, always use -v ? -v verbose = you see whats attempting to load and your double kernel panics. -x safe boot = it will scan all drivers, but only load the basics the kernel needs and get you to a safeboot desktop for repairs -f ignores caches = this can get you in sometimes when you have a smegged system cache. sometimes getting into the desktop and rebooting alone can remedy this. more likely, you will need to reinstall, remove a kext and rebuild your system cache. there are many other common bootflags, but you wont be able to know what you need without -v
