Is this a suitable laptop for OSX?

11 May 2008 - 11:42 PM

Just ordered myself this laptop: Acer Aspire 7720G-834G64BN

7720G-834G64BN features:
  • 2,0 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo processor T8300
  • 4 GB ram
  • 640 GB
  • Nvidia GeForce 8600M GT
  • Windows Vista Home Premium
  • 17 inch 1440 x 900-res
  • BluRay
  • Dolby Digital Live Audio Enhancement
    Mobile Intel® PM965 Express Chipset or Mobile Intel® 965PM Express Chipset not sure which it is.
I just can't find out what mobo this laptop has. I have always used Zephyroth on my AMD computer, and previous versions of JaS' tiger OS X. So I do not know how which versions are suiteble for this laptop. I was wondering if the new iAtkos 2.0 would work with it.
Does anyone here have previous experiences with OS X and this laptop?

Ati X850XT PE PCI-E problem installing kext

25 March 2008 - 04:32 PM

Hey all,
I'm running zephyroth leopard 10.5.2 rev1 on my AMD pc right now and I am having trouble with installing a kext for my Ati Radeom X850XT PE PCI-E, i'm using the program called atiscript.z0rz.v0.2
I selected the resolution1024.768x32, the kovergpatch and cal5 but when I rebooted it was all in weird colours, I then changed the colours to thousands instead of millions also it was displaying in 16bit, and offcourse no QE.
Can anyone help me out with one of these problems?

Help will be appreciated!

Troubles with kexts.

Also I'm trying to find a sound kext for a realtek alc658, because it only plays sounds mono. I did find the VIA 655 stereo fix but I dont want to install it yet as i am not sure if it works.

Can anyone help me out with one of these problems?

OSX installation hangs after failed 10.4.9 update

23 November 2007 - 04:02 PM

Hey y'all,

I was trying to update my mac JaS mac osx 10.4.8 to 10.4.9 with the Myanmar AMD update(I recall something with a Z in it just can't place it) or whatever it's called. Long story short it didnt work (froze a bootscreen, didnt get really far in diagnostics). So I reckon I'd reinstall 10.4.8 again.
The weird thing is as soon as it starts installing it freezes, I tried Kalyway and JaS and the both froze in between the 5 and 10 percent.
I tried several ways of formatting my HD but none were succesfull.

My system specs.:

AMD Athlon 64 3200+ Venice
Abit Fatal1ty AN8
Maxtor 160gb s-ata
Ati X850XT

Help would greatly be appreciated

Black Screen after mac boots

20 November 2007 - 05:15 PM

My PC:

Abit Fatal1ty AN8
S-ATA Maxtor 160GB
AMD Athlon 64 3200+ Venice
Asus EAX850XT Platinum Edition (PCIE)


I tried installing Mac OS X 10.4.8 [JaS AMD-Intel-SSE2-SSE3 with PPF1 & PPF2] after booting it shows the loading screen for a while then turns black. I reckon it's something to do with my graphic card. I made some pictures of the info it shows in diagnostic booting, I also tried booting in safe mode and then the same thing happens.

Any ideas help would be appreciated
