  1. 10.6 on a notebook HP nx7400

    hey guys...it's good to see there are people here still messing around with the nx7400. I'm a noob in all the osx86 stuff, though fairly expirienced on linux and windows. Anyway heres the thing: I' downloaded, booted and installed Snow_Leopard_10.6.1-10.6.2_SSE2_SSE3_Intel_AMD_by_Hazard and all i get is kernel panics. Tried booting with cpus=1, arch=i386, -x nothing works. I always fail with the message and after some lines i get a message about a problem with com.apple.iokit.IOACPIfamily(1.3.0) and org.tgwbd.driver.elliottforcelegacyRTC In the bios all the options in Device Configurations are "enable" and the HDD translation mode in "bit-shift". There are no usb devices plugged in. The installation finished just fine, but i haven't managed to boot correctly once.any ideas?
  2. Hey everybody, this comes straight from Grav3mind himself... Seems that the link to the .kext file is down at this time. He's pretty busy at the time but he'll get us a working link ASAP Of course anyone else who has the time and the working .kext could step up here. Let's go people!
  3. ok, at the wiki main page, it makes it look so easy to fix this damn thing, but i'm pretty stuck. I have overwritten the kext files with the one dell700m provided and so i managed to make OSX find the card. But i get a message that the link is inactive. I tried different settings, static address and DHCP but nothing worked. I even tried editing the /Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/NetworkInterfaces.plist file but that didn't helped either [although it did change the BSD Device Name from en0 to en1, but i guess that was gonna happen with the change anyay]. I used the Network Utility and i got these: IP Addresse(es) Link Speed 0 Mb Link Status Inactive Vendor Broadcom Model 4401 No idea why the Link Status is "inactive". Actually one idea. My IP should be how the hell do i change this? i have setted up the IPv4 to: Configuration Method: DHCP So any ideas? anyone? my configuration: HP Compaq NX7400 Intel ® Core2 T5500@ 1.66Ghz 1,5GB RAM
  4. Question about partitioned USB HD

    thanks for replying digby. I experimented a little myself. I created a fat32 partition for the OSX install and then i tried to turn it to Mac Journalled from the disk utilities, but i got a message that all 3 volumes will be erased so i backed off. I'll try it again after i empty the HD
  5. hello everybody, first post, hope i'm not asking anything terribly stupid. I'm thinking of installing Mac OS X 10.4.8 [JaS AMD-Intel-SSE2-SSE3 with PPF1 & PPF2] on my USB HD. I was thinking of following this guide http://wiki.osx86project.org/wiki/index.ph..._USB_Hard_Drive Seems simple enough. My only question is this: I have a lot of data in that HD that right now i cannot backup. So i set up a 20 GB partition to install MacOS in. The rest of the partitions on the HD are safe right? i mean, "*Warning* all data in the usb drive will be erased" is for the data on the partition were OSX is being installed, right?
