  1. I can get it to boot in Single user mode too, and actually was able to get to the desktop for about 2 minutes with a wired mouse before it finally froze, I know I am close Update: Ok, I have decided to reinstall 10.6.3, question can someone give me a step by step on the kext backup and deletion...at what point do i use kext utility? I know I am close...just need that one crucial step clarified...Thanks!
  2. I have the same configuration minus the bluray, followed this guide and my laptop is stuck in a black screen,i backed up the kexts to the desktop and rebooted after the update, (hope I didn't miss something...) What can I do to restore functionality? I'd also be interested in a 10.7 upgrade but am happy with 10.6.8. Thanks in advance! Also, on a whim, I tried an external display, looks like I am getting a white screen Update: Now I am getting the iAtkos screen but no icons or mouse, same thing happens in safe boot
  3. Hi Guys, I have an old Dell Inspiron 1525 that I'd like to Hackintosh, and right now I have Iatkos S3 installed, however, I get a black screen on start up, and from what I gather it's going into a sleep mode. My issue is that I don't have a good battery so the sleep trick doesn't work for me. zCan anyone provide suggestions? Also, I'd much rather have L2 on it so I can use the App Store. Are there any good step by step tutorial's out there to maybe dumb it down some? Thanks guys, Me Inspiron 1525 Intel Pentium Dual Core (2.00 ghz) 2g memory Video: Intel Crestline Graphics Audio: Sigmatel 9205 Modem: Conexant HDA D330 MDC Wifi: Dell Wireless
