double check the path.../Applications/Utilities/Disk\ Utility.app


or aside from launching it from terminal like this:

open /Applications/Utilities/Disk\ Utility.app

if it's not there you can run the command line version in terminal:

diskutil

for directions view the man page:

man diskutil

If it really isn't there for some weird reason, I believe you can use Disk Utility on your ideneb install DVD - as long as you can mount your source and target drives and you have all the required files ready that should be enough.

Truer words were never spoken. If there wasn't at least 5 different ways to accomplish the same thing, we'd be screwed :)

well, gotta know the details first. Go here System Info, an app to get hardware and kexts info download and run the app to get device and vendor ID's for both, then go to website mentioned in same thread and use that info to search for compatible kext.

Is there anything in the output that says "unkown device" or words to that effect?

It's your hardware. I have no idea.
I know it's possible to modify the ROM on some wireless cards so that it appears to OS X as a genuine Airport card.
I don't know which make or model cards will work. And I've never hackintoshed a laptop.

No, but they are out there. Use google or the forum search to find them.

You're going to give up on the hardware that you have, just because LSPCI can't see it?

The warning level you have is there to remind you to be less lazy, have you forgotten?

First find out what is the make and model of the wireless card.

If you can't do that, then I can't help you.

I can't find conclusive evidence that the 4313 is working for anyone.
You can try this: http://www.nawcom.co...eless/Broadcom/
I have no idea whether it will work or not.

And there's this:
http://www.osx86.net...e&id=972&page=4
But the 4313 is not on the list of supported devices.

Here's the rebranding stuff I was talking about earlier:

Note that I didn't know any of this until I googled it. You could have done the same thing yourself.
