In Topic: Just how important is QE/CI?

20 August 2010 - 09:14 PM

i dont have QE/CI on my Lenovo Ieadpad Y450 laptop but i'm still able to play 720p mkv's just fine (I have Core 2 Duo CPU). Can't do random screensavers, frontrow or vlc. I use Mplayer and sometimes Quicktime to watch videos. Youtube flash videos play just fine (HD has a bit studder and full screen is a tad bit slow). I hear you can run older versions of Photoshop (Not sure the version) and iWork etc without QE/CI. There are also workaround/alternative apps for Apple apps that don't work because of lack of QE/CI.

As for the dual boot i'm doing Snow Leopard and Windows 7 just fine using Chameleon V2 RC4. I didn't have to configure anything just installed bootloader during setup of SL and boom it worked.

Thanks for the info! I have Photoshop CS5 (just ugraded) and Photoshop, InDesign and Dreamweaver CS4, GameSalad Creator, and iLife and iWork '09. (With regard to iLife, I really only use iTunes, iPhoto, and occasionally Garage Band.) I'd prefer not to hunt around and buy older software just because I lack QE/CI, so do you think these will run?

EDIT: I've heard from a number of sources that my wireless chipset, the AR5B93, will work automatically with the latest Snow Leopard 10.6.3 update. Can anyone confirm or deny that directly?

Anyway, I'm going to do the installation this weekend, as soon as I finish backing up all my stuff. 40G partitions each for Snow Leopard and Windows 7, and another 80G partition for all my personal files. Excitement~!

In Topic: ATI Radeon HD 3200 Drivers

26 February 2010 - 06:21 AM

I'm a total newb about driver programming and all that, but how hard would it be to port the Mobility Radeon HD drivers from Linux to Mac? Seriously ... they're both based on Unix, and the HD3200 is fully supported on my Ubuntu laptop. This is the one thing keeping me from diving back into Hackintosh. I know it would be a big project, but a substantial amount of wannabe-Hackintoshers are ATI users.

So tell me, would that be possible?

In Topic: iDeneb v1.4 Boot Problems

20 January 2010 - 06:47 AM

EDIT: By accident, I found a fix to the problem. All you need to do is plug something into your USB port (flash drive, external mouse, whatever) when you get to that error. After that, it continues booting up without a hitch. Posted here just in case anyone else is having this difficulty...

Bump ... any ideas?

In Topic: A Few Driver Questions

11 January 2010 - 02:58 PM

Everything I've seen pretty much seems to be a dead end. The Atheros fix I tried (posted here on these forums) did absolutely nothing for me, and there was no plist file for me to modify like the tutorial said there would be. There are no working kexts for the ethernet or the graphics, and it looks like both projects intended to make some have dead-ended. Azalia didn't work for my audio - in short, the whole thing was a disaster.

I managed to reinstall Win7 Ultimate over my corrupted partition. so now I can see more detailed information about my hardware and have updated my original post. Still, unless there's somewhere I'm not looking, OS X on an Aspire 5532 seems pretty hopeless.
