  1. Hi, guess I am a super-dummy .. I did all as told but the stick don´t boots, stuck on a black screen with non blinking white cursor top left before any bootloader appears. P8P67 Pro, i2600k. Tried Disk warrior 4.2 on the stick, no succes. Any Idea? Thanks!
  2. USB Wifi Dongle Compatible?

    guess this should work: http://cgi.ebay.de/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewIt...em=130474570448
  3. amazing system! :-) on the cinebench screenshot it shows unter part 9 an i7950 @4.09 GHz with just 3.71. strange, any idea why so slow? my old faithful OC Q6600 also performs 3.7 what cooling do you use to get 4 GHz ?
  4. do you keep on working on the vostro on the new thread ? can you give us a link ? chiao & buena suerte
  5. start OSX from an external drive (FW, USB) and use Disc Warrior and after this iPortable bootfix to get the right boot voodoo on your diac back. Cameleon then should be back and show W7 as additional start option besides the OSX partition(s). Good luck! short info for updating 10.6.3 to 10.6.5: 1. save <SYS>/System/Library/Extensions/IOUSBFamily.kext <SYS>/System/Library/Extensions/IOUSBMassStorageClass.kext <SYS>/System/Library/Filesystems 2. Make combo update: (download unter: http://support.apple.com/kb/DL1324 ) !! after update USB (= also Mouse and Keys) may be broken so be shure you can boot from an external 10.6.3 backup system !! Just clone your current install to an USB drive. If Mouse and Keyboard is dead after update Boot in this Backup System and replace the kexts and the whole <SYS>/System/Library/Filesystems folder by the backups. repair rights (MUST!!) and restart. don´t kill me if you break your setup, be aware H@ckintoshes ALWAYS needs lots of Backups ..
  6. we are located in EU (Germany) and here it is no problem to return anything / reject any purchase after sale within 2 Weeks (often 4 weeks, e.g. online / ebay). Its EU law. Of course the thing you return has to be in a proper state. You don´ t have to explain why. You don´ t even have to pay the shipping for return. It´s hard rules for dealers here. DELL currently has a special sale without shipping costs, so there is no risk to buy, check via USB external drive and to return when no success. I don´ t know how the situation in US. And when I am able to install on a USB drive its no problem to transfer the install to the internal. The problem is the graphics I guess ? Did you try some NVinjects to get the 330 running? I found on another system (desktop) a older NVinject (for 10.5) works well on 10.6.3, an actual not. strange. Just try the different, even older versions, I am shure one will work.
  7. new version ? don´ t know about .. but you could just order and try via external USB drive. If no success return it simply to DELL. But I am shure It will be possible at least with one of the NVInject kexts
  8. Hi Rainer, 330M QE/CI full res, HDMI second monitor, firewire and most other things works great, without any twaeks look this thread and the wiki! http://wiki.osx86project.org/wiki/index.ph...ith_NVIDIA_330M Not working is: real sleep (hibernate works since yesterday) and the ricoh card reader. thanks, I am a bit afraid to change the DSDTs .. is there another easy way for nnobs like me?
  9. 10.6.4 breaks local LAN on my install. I can´t access other network computers. Internet and VNC still works fine. I wait for 10.6.5 and will then try again. The LAN Break also appears on some real macs, too. You can change the hibernate mode using the command in my last post. Sleep doesn´ t work yet, but hibernation (deep sleep) is a good alternative and way faster than nomal boot.
  10. Now I get deep sleep / hibernate working! :-) It works with the attached SleepEnabler.kext on 10.6.3. add this to Extra/Extensions maybe remove Disabler.kext (? just try) set on terminal: sudo pmset -a hibernatemode 7 I moved the other kexts from Extra/Extensions to the System/Library/Extensions, now boot is much faster. The system gets up from Image in approx. 20 sec. good luck! :-) Anybody here gets an Idea how to get a proper swich off after shutdown? Currently I have to press the Power Button manually. restart works. SleepEnabler.kext.zip
  11. GraphicsEnabler=yes this is a boot property in the <StartVolumeRoot>/Extra/com.apple.Boot.plist file. On the 3700 you can use the OSX native graphic system, no need for additional drivers, the 330 card is the same as on the MBP Cinebench is a benchmark System for 3D Software (especially Cinema 4D) which measures the CPU speed (render) and the Open-GL performance of the graphic card http://www.maxon.net/en/downloads/cinebenc...nformation.html :-)
  12. a bit OT but maybe interresting: I just bought a Yuraku YV24WBH1 monitor with a high resolution of 1920 x 1200 NEW for less than 100 EUR (!). Works out of the box with the Vostro 3700 / 330 Card via HDMI. The build quality of the monitor housing is a bit poor ( light plastic ) but picture quality is amazing, great colors, contrasts and brightness. Matches well to the look of the Vostro LED screen. Its THE recommendation for a budget monitor. Maybe a good additional monitor if you need one and travel by plane because its very very light weight compared to other monitors.
  13. In wonder why nobody seems to use the iPortable_Snow_x86_Installer ?? Works like a charm, the result is not perfect but most things work fine, see the WIKI: http://wiki.osx86project.org/wiki/index.ph...ith_NVIDIA_330M
  14. Today I received my new WLAN / Airport card: http://cgi.ebay.de/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewIt...em=260601300786 Its full size but you can easily shift it into place ( vostro 3700 ). No screw lock possible, but it is not needed because the card fits very tight. See the attached photo. It works 32 and 64 bit, out of the box. :-)
  15. Hmm .. seems to be the card I already have, but it doesnt work. Tried again the bcm43xx_enabler.sh script and also taping PIN 20. The system Profiler shows airport but I dont get any Icons, pref pane or connection. I checked and I have place for a full size card, so I will try the apple card. Report soon! Hopefully there will be a install package sometimes to do a better reinstall, I have some random KPs something is going wrong..
