  1. Hoping the updated Mac Mini's comes soon, I feel the need to finally replace my old G4/533mhz ^^ Even if it's still working perfectly year after year after year, it's still old and slow and could use a faster replacement :<
  2. iDeneb / XP Dualboot

    Don't know much about diskpart, only used it once myself but for me it was too much work and too much that could go wrong, so I've reverted to using a completely physically separate hd for OSX on both my two pcs (one is AMD Ahtlon64 X2, having iDeneb 1.3 Leopard 10.5.5 on one hd, then XP Pro SP3 and Vista x64 on another hd, the other pc runs JaS 10.5.4 on a Intel Core 2 Duo processor). Imho, if you're really worried about stuff on the other partitions, you should really look into just getting a separate hd to install OSX on, much easier and way less hassle. All you need to do when having OSX installed on the separate hd is to use the built-in bios selector for boot-device. On this AMD PC I press F11 to get to the list of harddrives etc to boot from. Then just choosing the hd OSX is on and it will boot that instead of the normal XP hd. Edit: The error I didn't even notice that it was written in the post , but as Hugo Guerreiro wrote, it's because of no drivers being there for the SATA/ATA-controller on the dvd. I guess it would be possible to inject drivers somehow, but that I don't know anything about myself.
  3. Happens the same for me when I try to play Lineage 2 while using the Input Remapper, my keyboard and mouse goes completely dead. Had no choice but to uninstall it completely to get it to work again :/
  4. Had that problem on my 2nd pc (one with a MSI 945GCM5-F V2 mobo and a Intel Core 2 Duo cpu), but was getting reboot as soon as it tries to launch the installers gui (after finishing loading all the kexts). That seemed to be because of the newest BIOS that I had upgrade to though. After downgrading to a older (and not really correct one) it would boot the installer again at least, but most of my hds are connected to a ATA133-card that osx has no drivers for so need to get a new SATA-hd for that comp to install osx on in that comp. You should see if you can downgrade bios to a earlier version and see if it still happens (or upgrade to a newer one). Can either solve the problem or not. If that doesn't help, then I don't know what will though (but maybe someone else can shed some light on the problem instead).
  5. can you kinda help me with my pc+leopard

    Well, my pc is using a MSI K9N SLI-2F motherboard with a AMD Ahtlon 64 X2 6000+ dualcore cpu and a Asus GeForce 8800 GTX with no problem so, so I'd say chances are very high that your mobo will work fine too. I used the Zepyroth 10.5.2 AMD install dvd, choosing the Nforce chipset during install and also the graphicsdrivers for my graphicscard in the installer. The audio I had to use AppleHDAPatcher for though since it wouldn't work from the drivers on that dvd, but that's no problem really. Also using 4x1gig ram modules in the comp and works fine for me so far ^^

    Not sure about 10.4.7, but the release of 10.4.8 I used (Mac OS X 10.4.8 [JaS AMD-Intel-SSE2-SSE3 with PPF1 & PPF2) worked fine on my AMD Athlon 64 X2 6000+, as long as I specify 2 cpu's with the startup parameters. My motherboard is a MSI K9N SLI one however, so no idea about your specific motherboard though.

    Nope, haven't changed to another cooling for the chipset. Even though it wouldn't solve my main problem, the lack of drivers for the graphicscard I normally use in that comp (a ASUS GeForce EN8800GTX with 768MB of vram). The current card I have in the comp is my old graphiscard that I was planning on selling (it really performs poorly and was only a temporary solution until I could afford a better one for this comp that was firstly meant to be a gaming-pc only). Will see if I can replace the cooling for the chipset somehow...

    Installed the Natit Universal drivers now, seems to be pretty similar: I still get some artifacts here and there in osx randomly on the screen, still bugged polygons in both Halo and GooBall (see attached files for images from Halo). The drivers sure is a good start, but nothing more than that. Quartz Extreme and Core Image works anyway, and I can access all resolutions my monitor supports (all the way up to 2048x1536 where Windows XP/Vista only allowed me to use at most 1600x1200)

    I have this card and it works out of the box with JaS 10.4.8 AMD/Intel with PPF1 & PPF2 (it's ATI Radeon x1x00 PCIe support drivers). I do get some artifcats with those drivers though (my system is a MSI K9N SLi motherboard with a AMD Ahtlon 64 X2 6000+ 3.0ghz cpu and 2gigs of ram). Quartz Extreme and Core Image support working with it anyway. Haven't tested the Natit Universal drivers yet though, gonna give them a try later today when I have the time to fiddle with it.
