It would be easier just to update the whole thing by downloading a new 10.4.8 DVD then update.

Anyways, check : http://forum.insanel...showtopic=34068

i tried both

JaS.10.4.8.AMD.Intel.SSE2.SSE3

JaS.Mac.OS.X.10.4.8.AMD.Intel.SSE2.SSE3.PPF.1.Integrated.JaS 10.4.8 AMD Intel SSE2 SSE3.Defiant diskutil fix.Integrated


one refused to let me see about this mac
and the other one the built in patch didnt work and when it did work didnt let me connect to internet didnt recognize my built in ethernet. someone please tell me what i did wrong those times or which one i should download?? now or how to get either of these to work. or a detailed way to upgrade a 8.8.1

and user 2 for that one do i have to have anything besides the patch downloaded from there? because when i tried i got a cross through circle after reboot.

Please remove that link from your post. Linking to torrent files is unlawful here, just tell us what DVD you got, we will know what your talking about :D

And secondly, its called a "Driver". try searching on the forum or post your hardware so we can help you better.

goddammit, if you keep being a annoying sod, no one will answer your questions. Just go and search around in the forums, i aint gonna help you as u seem to expect people to help you, as if its our obligation. when u have searched the forums, searched google, and cant find anything, then ask
