  1. Hi Everyone sorry for reviving a super old thread but I am having an issue with my mid 2012 Macbook Pro I borrowed learning DVD's at the library for my sons learning but I cannot insert anything in the internal DVD Drive I am getting: No disc burning device was found. If the device is external, make sure it’s connected and turned on. A valid DVD drive could not b found [-70012] The fixes here does not apply to me because I have an internal optical drive. I opened my laptop and reseat the cables but it has no effect and I am on Sierra by the way.
  2. Dell Inspiron Mini 9 ?

  3. Did anyone in here had shutting down problems? My ACER 5720Z shutsdown in the middle of installation. I figured out that I had to focus an Electric Fan on it to finish the installation. After installation is done it will shutdown after every 5 minutes. Turn it back on and same thing happens. Any IDEAS?
  4. AppleHDA ALC268 Shutdown Issues [SOLVED!]

    I dont know if i understood your problems but i think i have the same issue I have an Acer 5720Z laptop with ALC268 as yours of course it s not working out of the box after installing any distro's So i found taruga's ALC268 AppleHDA and it did worked!!!!! but after about 5mins. of playing sound using iTunes my computer reboots!!!! Any fix on this? Are we having the same issue?
  5. i have 5720Z i made the sound working using tarugas AppleHDA.kext (though aptop shuts down when use) LAN and WiFi not working, Tried couple of hex editing for the LAN to work someone on some thread even uploaded a kext edited for 5720Z but had dependency error Broadcom Netlink BCM5787M Atheros AR5BXB63 Realtek ALC268
  6. I have Broadcom NetLink BCM5787M nic cant make it working encountered a lot of dependency problem when using any of the uploaded kext on the forum tried VEN_14E4 DEV_1693 ACER ASPIRE 5720Z Hope someone could make one working.....
  7. Realtek ALC 268 WORKING

    This workz on my ACER ASPIRE 5720Z Thanks a lot.... I think the reason why it does not work with others is that they are using VANILLA kernel. I tried installing it again and for some reason it is not working any longer. OR SOMEONE MIGHT HAVE CHANGE THE original file!!! ON THE download page....

  10. Triple Boot Guide for SSE2 no EFI im on triple boot XP Pro(VISTA suckz!!! ), Leopard, Ubuntu Gutsy (i like compiz-fusion ) Method: (i found this important for you to be able to interchange/access files between OS's) Step 1: Installed XP Pro on the 1st drive Step 2: Installed Leopard (iATKOS v1.0ir2) on the 1st partition of my 80GB - i donwloaded the iATKOS r2 patch here http://zula.info/ since the 1 on irc is not working for me it is about 7mb i think but the patch on zula.info is almost 22mb - Download the original iATKOS v1.0 found on irc not just anywhere!!! Step 3: Install Ubuntu Gutsy Step 4: Install gparted on ubuntu ( sudo apt-get install gparted ) Step 5: Mange boot flags of Leopard HDD (you can do this prior to installing Ubuntu via Live CD) Step 6: Configure grub sudo gedit /grub/boot/menu.lst - You might want to sudo fdisk -l to list the partitions on xterm so you wont be confuse when configuring grub. it should look something like this: NOTE: this is just an example this is not how mine looks like # Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System #/dev/hda1 * 1 305 307408+ 6 HFS+/NTFS #/dev/hda2 306 789 487872 5 Extended #/dev/hda3 * 306 789 487872 5 HFS+ #/dev/hda5==(hd0,4) 306 741 439456+ 83 Linux #/dev/hda6 742 789 48352+ 82 Linux swap Step 7: Add XP and Leopard on your menu.lst it should look something like this: title Windows XP root (hd0,0) chainloader +1 makeactive title Leopard 10.5.2 root (hd0,1) chainloader +1 makeactive<BR> Step 8: Save and Exit Step 9: Restart your Computer Time to upgrade your 10.5.1 to 10.5.2 -i downloaded kalyways combo update 10.5.2 -i downloaded netkas 9.2.0 kernel and system.kext shutdown/reboot fix -install kalys update -replace kernel and system kext if you have any questions PM me
  11. i have iATKOS v.1.0ir2 updated to 10.5.2 by kaly used netkas universal kernel + system.kext almost all of my applications wont run like iTunes, Quicktime, etc. it went slow after installing graphics update
