Hmm...not sure what the video could be. if its an HD video on youtube (i.e. 720p or 1080p), not only is it going to go slow, its trying to push that resolution onto a small screen. I don't use my hackintosh much anymore, but I remember that I could watch videos with no real problems.

As for Front Row, what is the specific problem?

I was able to fix it. seems that it was an Appleframebuffer.kext problem. i loaded my backup Kext, now i am good to go.

I have another question regarding the trackpad. is there a way to make 2 finger scrolling work? and other functions of an apple track pad? my trackpad is working but only as a normal mouse...

If you installed the ps2 kext file, two finger scrolling should work off the bat, at least it did for me. Try looking under system preferences under the trackpad and seeing if that helps.

Hi

thank you for the quick response! i was able to make my 2 finger scrolling work.. i forgot to copy the 2 ps2 kexts into the extensions folder... i was also wondering if you knew any program that would allow reverse scolling? like how it is in Lion... would you know of any program that would allow natural scrolling? (the type where you can just flick the trackpad and it would move either up or down? or inertia scrolling?)


Since the wifi chip of this notebook is not fully functioning, especially when reception it receives is b/n/g will it be possible for me to install a new driver for the usb wifi dongle i purchased? it has a railink driver... will i have to uninstall the WIFI kext that came with your package, before i actually install the new kext? or can i just go ahead and install?

1) I don't know about a natural-scrolling program.
2) You can buy a usb dongle. I did before the wifi kext didn't work. Any mac-compatible one will work. You do not need to remove the wifi kext.

honestly, I don't know much about backing up hackintosh computers. I never used time machine or carbon copy or anything. The best thing to do is, before you install any programs that are suspicious or system updates or anything, backup your docs and important stuff. That way you always have it.

I use Time Machine on both of my Hackintoshes. 1 netbook and 1 desktop. restoring worked fine on both with no major glitches. Time machine will not restore you're boot loader so you will have to reinstall Chameleon or whatever you use after the first boot.

There are instructions on the net how to add an install disc image to your time machine backup drive so that you can both, boot and run Time machine and access your TM backup on the same drive. If you can't find them let me know and i'll take a look :-)

you can also access all of your files manually in a TM backup if you just want to snag data. Good Luck!

I finally have everything working except ILife. Has anyone encountered this problem? After I click the install button a get an install error.. Does this have something to do with screen resolution? Is there any way I can install iLife? I tried install iLife 2011.. Should i use an earlier version?

iLife will not install from the installer file. I never got it working like that. You have to use Pacifist and extract out the pkg files for each of the programs and install them that way.

Hi All,

I've had a 1005ha running for about a year, however I recently screwed up the system and now I'm trying to re-install. I've prepped my usb drive but when I select it, after hitting the "esc" key, I get a blank screen with a blinking cursor…. any thoughts?

You are not holding the ESC key early enough. To ensure that you are doing it properly, hold the ESC key before you hit the power button. Also, if that doesn't work, go in the BIOS and change the boot sequence to have your flash drive first.

That is a hard one. We need more details. What is the model of the dongle? We need to know that in order to diagnose the problems that are occurring.

Flash doesn't work.

I downloaded flash 11.1 and 11.3 and neither work. :/ anyone had the same issues? I'm on 10.6.3 since I don't want to crash anything or deal with overheating
