Been having some trouble since a wipe and reinstall and I don't remember setting the expansion slots as shown in the LHe readmes. But I can't find it! THe only coreservices folder I can find is on my osx install disk and there's no expansion slot utility there. Its not in the applications or utilities folder either and repeated spotlight searches only turn up the ReleaseNotesKONA_v5.pdf ?? I do realize it's entirely possible i'm losing my mind. The other thing i've considered is perhaps the only time you have access to expansion slot utility is when you physically pull the card out and put it back in. I'm hoping that's not the case as that would be a major pain because of where my tower resides. Any help appreciated
Gary, Thanks for the tip regarding the new desktops not needing the Expansion Slot utility because they are all 16x. I was a little unsure why my new MacPro was telling me that "Expansion Slot Utility" was not intended to run on this machine.
If anybody was looking for it on a previous version Mac Pro, I don't think it was mentioned here, but it is located in /System/Library/CoreServices/
In the Finder go to the Go Menu > Go to Folder and paste that in.
"FYI - the new desktops do not have the Expansion slot utility since all of the slots are now 16x"
I just installed a new PCI-E card in a brand new 8 core MacPro, when trying to launch the application which uses the card (Redcine-X with a RedRocket) I got a message saying the card was in a 4x slot and it required an 8x. Of course there is no Expansion Slot Utility on my machine. What's up?
