FireWire HD not seen; alternate screen resolution not available

Question

After a few minor bumps along the way, I now have Snow Leo 10.6.8 up and running on my AMD Hackintosh! :)

Thanks to AppliArt for the great install guide! :cool:

I do have a couple of minor issues thus far:

1) My FireWire port (onboard) seems to not be working. I have been trying to connect a G3 iBook (booted in FW Target Disk Mode) to the FW port, but the iBook HD is not mounting, nor is Disk Utility even seeing the bare drive.

2) The Displays prefpane is not presenting any alternate screen resolutions; I am stuck with a 1268x1024 (IIRC) resolution--makes some stuff look a bit fat on my widescreen. :(

Can anyone help with either of these issues?

Thanks.

I'm having the same issue, the disk is not mounted, but it is visible on the firewire devices... ABOUT THE DISPLAY, DID YOU SELECT THE DISPLAYS RESOLUTION ON THE PERSONALIZE OPTION BEFORE INSTALL THE OS?
