Backup require space and restore may be dangerous when you have a vista dual boot ;)
I will stay in 10.5.2 if 10.5.3 don't enhanced my hack.

I am having an issue with Boot Camp and the "Boot Camp Assistant cannot be used.: You must update your computer's Boot ROM firmware before using this setup assistant." error. Wtf.. It is "up-to-date" that I'm aware of..

Help please?!

Maybe I'm wrong but Bootcamp doesn't work on Hackinstosh, because EFI emulation is uncomplete.

Is anyone having issues with overheating/fans over-working?

@skyykj : You're welcome, don't forget to post your tips here.
@insaneSOJO : It seems kernel influence temperature management. I used vanilla, kabyl and modbin kernel. Fans speed change but it's extremely rare. I found my laptop was more hot with OS X than Vista but maybe it's Apple settings for more silence ? For a periode I touch the surface near the power button to be sure it's OK and check temperature monitor :)

I've got question for people who upgrade to 10.5.3 or 10.5.4 : Have you got USB issues ?!?
Sometimes Finder freeze at startup, I need to boot with "-v -x". It make me crazy !
Only 10.5.2 work like a charm (except DVD player...)

Can you explain your method ? Something special ?
Did you use Time Machine ?

No, nothing special,

I installed Leopard with the 10.5.2 Kalyway install disk, then i updated to 10.5.3 with Kalyway combo update patch and installed newest vanilla kernel, then I just used the update manager to update to 10.5.4. Everything is working great.
But I don't use Time Machine...

Ok ... I use time Machine, I have a wireless USB dongle, External disk and USB key ...
Maybe one of this element freezing my Leo ... I use Vanilla kernel too ...

Can you confirm USB is configured with High Speed in BIOS ?

jep USB is configured with High Speed into bios.
But I acctually never copied lots of things to or from my usb HDD. just some little things

I will transfer some movie iso's tomorrow. Maybe it freezes then, because off the huge files. but i doubt

hi,

I hope you can help me ;)

First I have a dell m1710 too with exact the same konfiguration.
The Soundoutput is not the best and a little bit laggy. Do you have clear sound?
And now my biggest Problem. The 7950GTX.
After some experiments i got the full res. After 5h i am very happy.
I used your kext but when mac is starded the mouse is very slow and just controlable for few seconds. Then it laggs :P
Do you know any solution for my problem?

Hello and thanks for this great Guide, 10.5.2 works like a charm. I am using Vanilla kernel but I got some questions: Can I update OSX without any problems?
What is all that EFI patch thing about?
I ordered a Dell 1405 TrueMobile Card, will it work?

Thanks a lot in advance

Welcome ColadaKing,

thomaske seems have no problem with upgrading (10.5.3 combo Kalyway update + 10.5.4 update About this Mac).
For me update upper 10.5.2 cause USB problem : Finder freeze on boot, I prefer stay at 10.5.2 at the moment.

If you do any update, please tell us how it's working !
(Then I recommand Sonotone Dell Post Installer, with Sigmatel 9200, 2 fingers with M1710 patch, Mac Pro SMBIOS and Clamshell.)

I'm testing Chameleon Kernel, members say it's better than EFI v8
I don't know if Dell 1405 works, I want buy 1390 or 1490.

A the end of the guide, I upload my files for Geforce 7950 GTX,
one for 10.5.2 and 10.5.3 or 10.5.4.

Finally... dual core issue is solved!!

Check this thread

http://forum.insanel...howtopic=117558

I replaced my kernel with the posted kernel and guess what.. both cores are finally working!

here's my screen shot..

And sorry about being here(I own E1705) but I think since I have 7950gtx mine is pretty close to m1710 xD

Just wanted to deliver good news...
