In Topic: [GUIDE] 10.6.8 on a Dell Optiplex GX620

If you use a driver you will have some artifacts. There will be an after image of the cursor, but other than that your graphics will work like they are supposed to. This kext should work for you: http://www.osx86.net...950_+_lion.html

Using DSDT is a better option. There will be no video artifacts. I have had problems extracting the original DSDT file in 10.6.8, so if you just want to use my DSDT file it should work just fine. Extract the dsdt.aml file then open your hard drive's root directory and drag the dsdt.aml file into the Extra folder.

Many thanks, but I've copied your unzipped dsdt.aml file in to the Extra folder, but when I then go to Display properties, I still only have 1024x768 available

You're dead right - I updated the video drivers & it starts up to 10.6.8 just fine, however I can only set the desktop to 1024x768.

My monitor goes much higher than this, so can anyone please point me at the graphics card driver I need to use?

I am using the onboard GMA950 graphics.

10.6.3 is now working perfectly. I have two 10.6.3 partitions.

However, when I do the 10.6.8 update on one of the partitions & then remove the chocolate kernel & install the legacy kernels, when I reboot it just hangs on the grey screen with the swirly at the bottom.

I then tried running MyFix (by booting off the non updated, 10.6.3 partition) but I can't seem to get the 10.6.8 partition to start up.

Please help - I'm so close to getting this finished!

OK, I've started again from scratch with a retail DVD

All went well and it now boots up but after the loader screen I just get the blank grey screen.

I see there's instructions for this on page 2, but it says to boot to the HDD installation using the CD, however it won't boot in to the install

Any suggestions please?


Installed 10.6.3 perfectly using the guide but DIDN'T amend the DSDT file. Ran the MyHack, & the GX620 boots perfectly in to 10.6.3, from the HDD.

However, when I update to 10.6.8, delete the ChocolateKernel & install the LegacyKernels & reboot, it hangs on the apple loader screen (with the swirly at the bottom). It does this irrespective of whether or not I do the DSDT edit.

Please let me know what I'm missing here? Thanks

That's cool - I can get the Dell up & running on OSX using the boot cd.

Not having used a Mac for years, can someone please advise what software I need to convert a DMG in to a bootable ISO?

Many thanks
