After installing Leopard on my Dell Inspiron B130 (iDeneb v1.4), I tried to reinstall Windows XP to dual boot with. Only problem, I installed XP on a separate partition, and now it won't load OS X. My computer just boots straight to Windows. I've tried using Startup Disk in the iDeneb installer, but it only shows the disc and "Network Startup." And, if it helps at all, I reinstalled XP through a Dell disc instead of a retail one, and I updated it to SP3 (from 1a). Is there anything I can do?
I recently received a Dell Dimension 4600i from my grandmother after she got a new computer. I upgraded it a bit (doubled the RAM, replaced CD drive with DVD-RW, larger hard drive, fresh install of Windows XP) before wondering if it was compatible with OS X. Well, (i)Boot doesn't work with it, nor does its legacy counterpart. It appears to load but then just brings up a white screen. The same thing happens with nawcom's ModCD and iAtkos S3, although S3 jumps to a kernel panic after a few seconds (my only guess why is because it automatically selects to boot the installer if there's no keyboard activity, and the keyboard doesn't seem to work on the boot menu). So after trying all of those, I thought to try iDeneb v1.4 (Leopard 10.5.6). It boots fine, and displays the Apple logo, but then the installer is grayscale and horrible-looking (I've attached some images). What happened? Are the computer's integrated graphics not supported? Will it be like this after I install it? I was going to put in an nVidia Galaxy GPU, but then I saw that there were no PCIe slots. Is there anything I can do to fix this?
Hi, Sorry for the late reply - I'm new here. However I have successfully installed SL on my p6140f with tonymacx86's [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] + [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] method. The only real difference is that I use an ATI Radeon HD 5670 instead of the horrid Intel GMA graphics. It takes some tweaking around but it can be done. In my case, I just had to type PCIRootUID=1 in Chimera to load the SL installer without a kernel panic, and add it to apple.com.Boot.plist so that it was in effect every boot from then on. Again, I apologize for the late reply, you probably already got it. xD
