[GUIDE] Use more than 4gb RAM on AMD with 32 and 64 bit apps working

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

I am having some difficulty in somepoint hope u share how to proceed.

my config:

Asus m4a88t-m (Integrated ATI Radeon™ HD 4250 GPU)

Amd x4 965 black edition

g skill 4gb X 2 ripjaws x

nvidia 9500 gt an old still which I use.

I am following this method How to install Mac OS X Snow Leopard on your AMD system! | osxlatitude.com

so here is my question

1.I have downloaded a mac 10.6 dmg now how can i make it boot from usb as currently I am running windows 7 or should i change the file to iso and burn it on a dual layer dvd.I want to boot from usb as it will install faster i believe and will have no issue reading files while installation.

2.In customization option should i choose amd chipset or nforce chipset as my motherboard has amd card and external I have nvidia.

3.finally since many user had 4gb ram detection so is quite obvious than i need to patch the file provided in the first post.

Sorry if i have too many queries but had confusuion so wanted it to get clear from user who had success.

I patched my OS X 10.6.8 but Final Cut Pro X doesn't run. Not sure if it was after the patch or when I switched video cards (from ATI HD5450 to nVidia GTS 450)

I guess I will shutdown and switch vid. cards and find out if it's the vid. card or the patching. Do I need to patch anything else other than what's listed on the 1st post?

EDIT: Switched back to the ATI HD5450 and got the same error... Here is part of the report:

Where would I put this? In the apple.boot.plist?

Depends on what bootloader you're using. In my case I would have to put it in org.chameleon.Boot.plist

Thanks for that maxmem tip. I can get it to boot in 8GB if I type in maxmem=8192 at boot. I've tried editing the apple.boot.plist, but that doesn't work. And still can't get it to boot into 64-bit.

I have not been able to boot directly into x86 without the iB{censored} disc. I've installed Chameleon, Chimera, and just about every other boot loader here, but still cannot boot without disc.
