  1. After months of OSX86 and winXP running together perfectly and helping others in the community achieving the same I have once again come here to ask a question. I got the following problem: I installed 10.4.8 [JAS installer w/ SSE2&3] months ago and dualboot using Acronis OS Selector (as mentioned in the guide) with windows XP. A few weeks ago WinXP disappeared from the Acronis OS Selector menu, luckily I had WinXP on 'autostart' so if I waited 30 secs winxp would still start. HOWEVER when I tried to fix this by going into acronis os selector properties in windows, I accidentally set OSX to be the default startup OS. Result: only OSX is displayed in the OS menu, I can't change it back because WinXP is not recognised / listed by Acronis OS selector and I can't get into win XP anymore!!!! - Does anyone know how to re-add win xp to the acronis menu? I have roamed around for days on the net searching for a solution but I can't find one!!!! please help, I need to finish a report I have been working onm for 6 months and its on my windows disk, saved in Word 2007 and contains databeses not compatible with mac progs............ Thanks in advance, MTroni [EDIT] {censored} Acronis! I edited boot.plist like described in the forum and augmented the waiting time for Darwin launcher to start. Am now using the F8 method and the Darwin OS selector screen to boot to win when I need to. Acronis doesn't work well, AND is redundant!
  2. So, my dear friends is there already a "Final Solution" for this piece of fine, but non-0sx86 supported hardware yet? I'd love to know because the iwidarwin file hasn't worked for most people on here..... So far this is the only piece of hardware that isn't supported yet for my beautiful Toshiba osx86 daw! cheers M.

  3. Hey Guys! Firstly I'd like to say I LOVE this forum, really got loads of helpful info and tips from up here.... Either way, time to ask for all o' ya help as I have to backup a large ISO file to my backup HD which is used both by OSX (Hackintosh) and Win XP. However, as the file is 7 Gb I cannot simply vopy it as I get an error 1093 (file's too big, something to do with the formatting of the disk I believe as it is used by both OS'es.) So I need a rar-like app that'll archive the iso in for example 500 mb or 1gb chunks. Apparently it should also be possible to do it with terminal and some strings, but I'm not that much of a wizkid. Hope to get some suggestions! BTW I checked for macRAR but that's an old app (powerPC binary which I unfortunately can't run on this hackbook... TNX! M. Troni

    YESSSSSSSSSSSSSS Writing this from my hackintosh, finaly in full glory WORKING @ 1240!!!!\ on my Toshiba A100-683 ATI Radeon Mobility X1600 There seemed to be a few probs with kexts around but I finally found a Toshiba A100 kext (see attachment) Atiinject.kext that probably had the correct deviceID. Then, using kext install helper (that ez prog to install kexts) I MANAGED TO GET IT RIGHT!!!!!! YOHOOOO Now for some music production on my brand new mac! Just a last question because there's always more: When I leave my hack on for more than 10 mins or so without doing anything the screen goes black (probably power save mode) HOWEVER when I move my mouse or tap a key the screen flickers back real quick before going off again AND DOESNT COME BACK!!!!! This means I have to turn the machine of by hard reboot and go back into osx to continue my work..... any fixes for that??? maybe I just missed a stupid setting in display power saver settings or something?? Please note that in native when I didn't have the 1240 working yet the screen never went off in OSX! thanks so much all of you, righteye, JaS, etc. etc. you guys make it happen!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! M.

    Righteye thanks amillion again!!!!! I tried for an hour, neatly edited the EDID into info.plist and everything byt I now get a 2/3 screen with a blue bar on the right instead of a black screen.... at least its an amelioration Any ideas how to tackle this last hurdle so I'll be finally able to get ATI Radeon Mobility X1600 goodness on my hackintosh? (I tried the diabolik ATIX1600 kext and the normal atiinject, iodrv and other kext both with my edid inside but keep getting this 2/3 screen.........)

    Thanks a lot Righteye! I have an ATI Mobility Radeon X1600 with above mentioned EDID. I reinstalled my osx just to start from scratch and will try to copy the modified kexts today and let u know how it went! I hope I won't have the overwrite problem I had mentioned in the post above..... Thanks M.

    Thanks a lot... but that would be quite complicated given the fact that I have a black screen... Any ways to undo the harm from the console (after F8 at boot?) otherwise I'll reinstall..... Thanks either way! M.

    Dear friends, I've been studying this post for some time now and decided to give it a try. I followed the known steps with this EDID on my TOshiba A100-683 with Toshiba A100 kexts from another post: EDID: 00FFFFFF FFFFFF00 320C0000 00000000 000F0103 80FFFFFF EA0000A0 57499B26 10484F21 08000101 01010101 01010101 01010101 0101D51B 00A05020 17303020 26002115 10000019 00000000 00000000 00000000 00000000 00000000 00000000 00000000 00000000 00000000 00000000 00000000 00000000 00000000 00000051 I replaced EDID in ATIinject's info.plist Problems occured when copying the 3 files to system\extensions: One of the files (It wasn't ATIInject but IONDRVsupport.kext or the other one) couldn't be replaced cause OSX said it was in use!!! What to do???? Probably because of this when I rebooted my OSX booted into Black screen and I can't do anyuthing!!! So, 1. How can I change back to old / good setting without completely reinstellign all of OSX and formatting my OSX disk? 2. How can I replace the 3 files needed because OSX priompts one of them can't be replaced as it it on use??? Thanks a lot! M.Troni
