hello,

I am about to proceed with the installation and I have some questions to do before i can go on:

-considering first of all that I don't have a dvd burner, can I burn the uphuck (4.4 Gb) i downloaded from the internet onto several cds or it will not work?

which kind must be the installation cd (Rom or Boot)? also for the files that boinkytwo provided: must they be burned in a rom or boot mode?

ps: I am using nero

thanks a lot
alex

if your familiar with vmware workstation, then better use that to install osx. in addition, use alcohol 120 to mount the dvd image.

setup your hdd, install osx in a physical partition or drive. after successful install and bootup, you may then convert your virtual machine to native.

all the info mentioned above is availabe at forum.insanelymac.com and wiki.osx86project.org

come back here after successfully completing the above, and convert your installation into dual booting mode.

no problem burning it with nero... double check your settings.

alternative software to burn it are the following:

alcohol 120%

ultra iso

Win iso

and good luck...

If you have an Intel CPU (single core), apply the following patches.

AppleACPIPlatform.kext
Remove CPU Power Management.kext
Remove Thermal Kexts

*also disable ACPI from your bios settings.

then try to disable one core from the bios setting, just to test if osx will boot.

hi,
im really new at this, and im currently downloading jas x86 dvd, but the speed is very slow. what are the differences between the one you have provided and jas's?
could you please send me the link of your download link at ak_rbk@yahoo.com .
and does this work only for sse3 or does it work for sse2?
can the dvd you are providing also work without dualbooting i.e i want to install it over my xp installation.
is there no way to run the wireless hardware on my laptop, although I have noticed they have the driver for a 2200bg, which is the one which I have....

I will highly appreciate if someone answers my question.....

the osx boot file i am referring to, is the com.apple.boot.plist file

copy or drag it to the mentioned location. and do the chmod and chown thingy.


Ok, i understand all that you are doing, up to here.
Where do i paste it from ? Do i select a specific file, copy, then paste it ?
Or, by doing this, do i create a new blank file, overwriting the original file ?

If i need to copy it from something, i guess the link got deleted, right ?

Thanx,

hmmm... havent noticed that... strange...]

anyhow, if you have a cpu which only supports sse2 instruction, then just intall sse2 package.

if your cpu supports sse2 and sse3, then install only sse3 kernel package

furthermore, if your cpu is intel, then choose intel package only, as well as for amd.

..and bootcd already sent. its a partition tool.
