  1. This method does not work for retail SL. Editing the "Distribution" from the OSInstall.mpkg does not allow MBR installation as was possible with the all 10.5x aka leopard retail install DVD.
  2. [How To] Fix 10.5.5 Update Problems

    For what ever its worth this is how I do it every time without problems. I have the original osx installed from DVD using http://forum.insanelymac.com/index.php?sho...mp;#entry803725 http://forum.insanelymac.com/index.php?showtopic=115064 Both are usb based so very quick install/reinstall (< 6 min ) I have a clone on an external drive of my OSX 86 that is bootable from a mac and can be made bootable on any PC with USB boot capabilty just by doing the 2 things 1)substituting the original mac kernel ( the one with every update ) with one this 9.5: http://rapidshare.com/files/146201704/mach_kernel.bz2.html 9.4: http://rapidshare.com/files/132375753/mach...sc.tar.bz2.html 9.3: http://rapidshare.com/files/132376728/mach_kernel.html 9.2: http://rapidshare.com/files/132377549/mach_kernel.bz2.html 9.1: http://rapidshare.com/files/132378410/mach_kernel.bz2.html 9.0: http://rapidshare.com/files/132923445/mach_kernel.bz2.html posted here http://forum.insanelymac.com/index.php?showtopic=117558 Can make any unaltered 10.5.x installed drive bootable on a mac or aPC by just activating an appropriate mach_kernel 2) replacing AppleHDA.kext original vs patched for shut down purpose in a regular mac. That way I can upgrade via software update through a regular mac to the external drive anytime safely If I can boot the upgraded ext drive after switching mach_kernel then its a matter of cloning to the OSX 86 on my PC. Reason behind this is Apple SWUG will screw up a OSX 86 system through omission or volition. Upgrading a regular mac will get everything needed. It a matter of making that upgraded drive bootable in a PC through changing mach_kernel and adding all needed kexts. Interestingly I notice that just by switching the mach_kernel I can boot any regular external drive off a PC using usb stick method without having to remove the AppleIntelCPUPowermanagement.kext {censored}! However once Chameleon is installed this kext need to be removed. So now I always boot off usb first and then select 80 or 81. I hope this help
  3. MBR and Guid?

    Does not really matter if you can install Chameleon can boot it. As for none Darwin bootloader EasyBCD is the best.
  4. stickpin Just want to let you know that I am using the usb stick method to boot all reg mac bootable DVD/CD/USB on my laptop to take care of things. Just boot the usb. exchange or select boot device and voila. Save a lot of time! THANK YOU FOR YOUR VALUABLE EFFORT I have posted a solution to that here http://forum.insanelymac.com/index.php?sho...0&start=520 #534
  5. Might also work in other Intel lap top. http://forum.insanelymac.com/index.php?sho...0&start=520 #543
  6. For those who have TRACKPAD & KEYBOARD problems after retail install I have these to solve the problems. 1) Download the Files. 2) After Installation reboot with the DVD/CD and replace the Extensions folder and mac_kernel To do these: In terminal cd /Volumes/XYZ/ mv mach_kernel mach_kernel.bak cp -R /<path to the dowloaded mach_kernel(9.4)> /Volumes/XYZ/ chown -R 0:0 mach_kernel chmod -R 644 mach_kernel XYZ=your partition label Do this to replace the Extensions folder cd /Volumes/XYZ/System/Library/ mv Extensions Extensions.old cp -R /<path to the downloaded Extensions folder> /Volumes/XYZ/System/Library/ rm -rf Extensions.mkext reboot This time boot into the INSTALLED PARTITION Install Chameleon with the OSX86Tools http://######.com/osx86tools/ reboot and enjoy retail install. Make sure you remove the AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement.kext and reinstall the 9.4 mach_kernel AFTER EVERY UPRADE BEFORE REBOOT ! http://rapidshare.com/files/137175790/mach_kernel http://rapidshare.com/files/137175732/Extensions.zip
  7. Panarchy This is straight out of the url I gave you. If this doesn't help I do not know what else will. Speed up Darwin's timeout count-down <key>Timeout</key> <string>8</string> Replace 8 (default seconds) to a new value. To set Darwin to boot from a particular partition: <key>Kernel Flags</key> <string>rd=diskXsY</string> Where X is your hard drive number and Y is the partition number (BSD naming scheme) if you are unsure about the rd value open Aplications>Utilities>Disk Utiliy, click on the partition with OSX installed and click on info, the right "rd" value is the value from "Disk Identifier" EDIT: I've tested this a few times, doesn't seem to want to work for me. Anyone got any ideas? T This page has some info: http://neonkoala.co.uk/content/view/33/34 work fine for me, I use <string>rd=disk1s3</string> to boot from the 3rd primary partition of my second disk. NOTE: The kernel flags option has made some computers unbootable. </br> Type "-F mach_kernel -v" at the boot prompt if your computer fails to boot after messing around with this. NOTE 2: **ONLY IF YOU HAVE PARTITIONMAGIC** In the event you are not provided with a boot prompt, just boot to Windows normally. In command prompt, use diskpart to set the second partition active. This will boot the computer directly to OS X 86. Once booted, delete the changes made to the com.apple.Boot.plist file, save, and reboot. Use PartitionMagic( There may be another way?) to boot the computer, then reset the Windows partition back to active. Reboot again and you're back to your OS Selection menu. Here is an example /Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/com.apple.Boot.plist: <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple Computer//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd"> <plist version="1.0"> <dict> <key>Kernel</key> <string>mach_kernel</string> <key>Kernel Flags</key> <string>-legacy</string> <key>Boot Graphics</key> <string>Yes</string> <key>Timeout</key> <string>10</string> <key>Graphics Mode</key> <string>1280×1024×32</string> </dict> </plist>
  8. Should you be able to bear Arms?

    Please tell me you are just being coy to anger others and that you do not really believe in this statement. You must have either conjure up or quote out of context. The former will prove that you are being coy the latter will dictate that you should reveal the full text by the original author, so that there will be no misunderstanding.
  9. I am not sure what you really need. However if you are asking to shorten the time to Zero in grub do his in terminal sudo /boot/grub gedit menu.lst in the section ##timeout sec # # timeout X X is the number of seconds change X to 0 this will immediately open whichever os that you have set to open. For all ubuntu/linux solution you should do here http://ubuntuforums.org/ If you are thinking about Darwin timeout go here http://wiki.osx86project.org/wiki/index.php/Tips_And_Tricks I hope this help.
  10. Quad Booting Help

    Since your Ubuntu is an Ext Drive you are actually Triple booting As for the problem the easiest thing to do is to download this burn on Cd run and restore the corrected boot.ini. http://neosmart.net:6969/torrent.html?info...af55ea0016f7b7b
  11. Xp bootloader problem

    http://inihilist.wordpress.com/ This is a good instruction for Chain0 way of choosing OS. alternately you can use Easy BCD after making XP active.
  12. Now that I have well functioning OSX 86 for those with xps m1210 who will like to QUAD BOOT Here is my link http://forum.insanelymac.com/index.php?showtopic=119155
  13. linux ubunt+mac?

    I can read spanish well. I will say that you can install a live Ubuntu on a mac. I have a live partition on my MacBook Pro. Using this. http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?p=5517744#post5517744
  14. Xp bootloader problem

    Skullv Usually when XP failed to boot it is because of the the boot.ini becoming obsolete from the new installation. Try making the partition that you have XP on active If it boot into XP you can use Easy BCD to choose your OS. If after making the XP partition active and can not boot into XP then you will have to some how get into the booth.ini and edit the correct rdisk( ) value. To make your XP part active boot with your OSX 86 installation DVD. In Terminal type " Diskutil list " then " fdisk -e /dev/diskXsY " XsY is the designation of you XP part. X=0 usually. " u " " f Y " again Y is the partition # of the disc. " w " " y" " q " reboot you should be in XP
