  1. Did this box ever materialize? If so, would love to hear the final specs and how it's working out.
  2. Eidola, not spam at all in my opinion! I'm interested in giving this a try but I have vista 32-bit. So getting it installed to a guid partition has been difficult. Even with a gptsync'ed mbr, the vista installer knows something's up and won't install. I'm currently trying to install from within a Fusion virtual machine. This seems to install correctly to the partition and for better or worse the mbr is not updated. I don't know whether I'll be able to boot this vista partition or not. Actually, I came across your post just a little too late. Yesterday I tried this on the same gpt disk as my os x partition which is using the EFI partition boot method. And I soon realized that I couldn't dual boot b/c the vista partition wouldn't show in the list. So now I'm doing this vista install to my second gpt disk. Wish I had seen your post yesterday. I'll post back once I get this all working or give up trying and also if I give your patched boot loader a try.
  3. I'm in the middle of doing netkas' method for updating to 10.5.3. The updater has completed and I have not yet rebooted. But I mistakenly closed the root terminal prior to editing the /System/InstallAtStartup/scripts/1 file and restoring my kexts. Now whenever I try to sudo it is not accepting my password. I get "Sorry try again". Does anyone know how I can get back root access in order to complete the steps prior to rebooting? If I am not able to, and have to reboot, what will my situation be? Is there anyway to reboot and go into single user mode to complete the steps, prior to the apple update doing the rest of its thing?

    SUID errors after 10.5.3 update...

    Guys, I need some help... prior to finding this thread, in the middle of my 10.5.3 update, I closed my original terminal window and now can't get back the sudo in order to edit the "1" script and restore my kexts. So basically I'm stuck right now at #3 in the steps listed above. Can anyone instruct me how to get back super user access? and/or how to recover from this point if I just go ahead and do the reboot?
  5. Can anyone confirm one way or the other whether this system can run the vanilla kernel with EFI? Dell Dimension E510/5150 Intel P4 630 3.00GHz processor Intel i945G/GZ chipset ICH7/R ATI Radeon X300 I've patched the bootloader with EFI, and restored all vanilla kexts (incl. dsmos.kext) except AppleSMBIOS.kext and AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement.kext. Still unable to get vanilla kernel to work. Just get a reboot when I try to boot with it. So I'm wondering if anyone can tell me whether it ought to work for my system or I should just give up and keep the patched kernel. thanks
