yeah, I read that, but because I don't know what he changed, and what my device ID is, it is of no use. :)


Then without the Device ID, you didn't really do anything useful with patch anyway.

What do you mean? I did not patch because I did not have the device ID because it did not show up. Anyway to make it showup?

A while back, you said "I tried it, but it didn't power up..." You didn't say until later that you couldn't find the Device ID and thus didn't really "try it". If you have Windows available, but the card in and go to Device Manager, find the card, click on Properties and then click on the Details tab to get the Vendor ID and the Device ID.

To install with VMware, go here: http://forum.insanel...showtopic=11314

I have VMware up and running. I'll take a look at the link

And what I ment by tried it is that I thought when I put it in, it would appear as an Airport card

OK, I found it in Device manager, but that device ID is long... I am guessing it is 4320?

Vendor is 14e4 and Device is 4320. Use the 4320 for the XXXX in the guide above.

Well I just started the VMware install and erased my current OS X partition, so I will tell you how it comes out tommorow.

Thanks for all your help, Rammjet.

OK. I installed OS X 10.4.6, JaS iso, and it sticks at the gray Apple screen. (No spinning wheel thing)

During the install, right before clicking on the "Install" button, did you click on the "Customize" button and choose packages that pertain to your computer? You have to click on the little arrow to reveal the packages. If your computer is SSE2, choose that or if SSE3, choose that, but not both.

Yeah, I did that.

Here is what I selected(As you can see, the grayed out ones are the ones I chose):

OK. looks like you made correct choices in Customize, unless you don't really have GMA900 video.

Sometimes, on a laptop, a hang at the grey screen indicates a video problem. OSX expects to find a monitor and doesn't. This can be fixed by attaching a monitor or a VGA dongle to the VGA port or doing the 2-wire trick:

I am using an external moniter. :)

[edit] Yeah, I am almost positive I am using that. I'll double check tho, just to be sure.

Hmm, I guess that is the problem. I have a 915GM/GMS, 910GML one... Now why did I think I had a 900? :\

I'll let you know how it goes when I am done installing again.

Well it is struggling with your PCMCIA bus but gives up on that, then hangs on your SATA.

In BIOS, can you set SATA to emulate PATA?

Wait a sec, yes I do. I'll have to reinstall that patch later...

Nope, it can't. :)

Anything else I can do?
