  1. Asus EEE 1215N

    How are you guys getting the DVD to boot? I've been trying both iatkos and Niresh to no avail. I'm using Chameleon 2.1r1921. What settings are you guys using? mach_atom? i386? What version is your BIOS? Thanks!
  2. I need help with this too! If anyone has anything.. even an idea, please, please share!
  3. [How To] GMA900 with QE and CI support on Leopard.

    What's a good test to see if there are artifacts and problems with a given driver set?
  4. I've looked through all 45 pages of this topic and I can't find a difinitive working solution for the PS/2 problem. I currently have no keyboard or trackpad working. I have to use an external USB mouse to get around. Can anyone help?
  5. [How To] GMA900 with QE and CI support on Leopard.

    This one doesn't work for me.. I'm not sure why. I'll play around with a few different ones and keep testing. BTW, I have 2592.
  6. How do you reinstall Darwin Bootloader once in the Installer?
  7. Build OS image

    And how do you restore once your hackintosh cannot boot to open the program?
  8. Does the backup HAVE to be GUID? The reason I ask is because my HD must be MBR because i have windows on there. And it doesn't seem to make sense to make your backup in GUID, but have your main MBR. Shouldn't they be the same as to avoid error?
  9. UPDATE: I have tried SuperDuper and it is worthless as you must have another OSX patition to be able recover your data. I have also tried this to recover my Disk Utility restore: diskutil unmount disk0s2 cd /volumes/OSX86inst/usr/standalone/i386 dd if=boot1h of=/dev/rdisk0s2 bs=512 count=1 /volumes/ToolsDVD/startupfiletool -v /dev/rdisk0s2 boot bless -device /dev/disk0s2 -setBoot -verbose diskutil mount disk0s2 bless -mount /volumes/OSX86/ -setBoot -verbose reboot I've also tried every variation on these instructions... I can get everything here to work except the second to last step. I cannot bless the partition because it claimes that "bless should only be executed from the installation". I cannot seem to make my restored backup bootable! That's okay as long as someone can show me a method that can backup and restore with boot sector intact. I will try the Windows PE and Ghost method tomorrow, but I could really use some more help. If anyone knows how I can make a nonbootable system bootable, please help.
  10. I can't find the information I need by searching. Can someone please help me? I have recovered an image made from disk utility. I backed up my mbr and pbr with dd command on a usb drive. How can I put them back? In single-user mode, it wont let me mount the main disk or the usb drive to be able to make the transfer. In the Terminal from the Install CD, it claims that my main disk is being used so it can't load the mbr or pbr. Can somene please point me or re-establish a step by step proceedure to either install a new mbr or recover the ones I have? Thank You
  11. Okay, 3 Questions: 1) I tried to backup my PBR and MBR but I cannot find the files after they have been backed up. Where do they go? 2) Do I need both my pbr and mbr? 3) Can I just use the windows cd like the article said and fixmbr and be bootable perfectly with a backup and restore from disk utility?
  12. Trying it as I type this... I'm not sure how I will restore the backup. It says Disk Util will restore it, but will it be bootable? Is there any other way I can restore it to ensure the MBR stays?
  13. My Goal: To be able to create a backup image of my osx86 partition and be able to restore it PERFECTLY every time I make a mistake. I have one Leopard partition, one Vista partition, and one Storage partition. The storage would be large enough to hold a bit for bit copy of the OSX partition. Also, it would be nice if the image could be compressed. My Attempts: Apple DiskUtility: I made a backup AND was able to restore the data, but not the MBR. I could not boot into my partition to use it. FAIL! Acronis True Image Home 2009: I made a backup, but it would not restore back to the same partition. It only allowed me to restore to a larger partition, but not the original one it backed up from! FAIL! Carbon Copy Cloner: The only way to restore an image is to boot anto ANOTHER OSX partition and restore from there! FAIL! My Plea: Please help me find a backup solution that actually works!! Thank You
  14. How do I install a dmg file if I can't get into OSX?
