*LATEST EDIT* I've fixed my issues. I think I would've been fine before had I not done a few things wrong. First thing I did wrong was I ran the UpdateHelper after I ran the ComboUpdate. I had some instructions from before it was the most recent UpdateHelper version. This one you only run once and that's before you run the ComboUpdate to 10.6.8. Remember you need to restart after running UpdateHelper, then run the ComboUpdate once you are back to your desktop. This was my main problem. Some other minor things I did wrong was installing Chameleon boot loader from Multibeast when I was using a DSDT. Chameleon is only for people who don't use a DSDT or EasyBeast as it states which I didn't read til now. Basically that really bogged up the boot process. Now everything is working except my HD6870 doesn't have the 2nd DVI port active which is annoying. I hear the DisplayPort works but I don't have an adapter to test with. ============================================================= Original Post I've been having problems with getting my ethernet to work. I installed using a 10.6.4 CD and iBoot 3.1.1. I was a little uncertain as to the process to update to 10.6.8 with some of the instructions I was reading for SandyBridge. I may have messed something up because I ran the UpdateHelper both before and after the ComboUpdate. I have tried with the latest Multibeast to get the Ethernet working but it hasn't decided to cooperate yet. I just decided to do a BIOS update to F4 (I was on F3) and see if that helps. Also I did use the DSDT from the DSDT Database for the F3 install. Hopefully there's some odd quirk with F3 that made the Ethernet not work and now that I'm on F4 it will work. I really have nothing to lose right now so I'm trying whatever I can. Something else I'm curious about... I am using an XFX HD6870 throughout the entire install process. I am not sure whether there is problems behind the scenes with me doing this but as far as a visual goes.. it works and after the 10.6.8 update it recognizes it without me loading drivers. I'm not 100% sure stuff like QE/CI are working as I haven't gotten to the point where I'm testing that yet since my Ethernet is broke. So question is, do I need to run off the onboard video during install process or am I OK not doing that? Thanks!
