  4. NVIDIA 9 Series Driver Installer v2

    If you want to try my method, go to: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php...=135562&hl= Good luck!
  5. There's an extra mini-PCI slot on the back of the laptop, you can use that for your wireless card. Good luck! I just had a real Apple Airport Wireless mini PCIe N card arrive from China ... I am hoping in vain that I'll get it up with out the bios hack. Wish me luck! I wonder if there is a firmware flash for the card SDHC card reader? it only reads 8 GB and under cards sadly!
  6. *Hardware specs: CPU: Inel Core 2 Duo Video: Nvidia Geforce Go 7300M Chipset: Intel ICH7 Network: BCM440X LAN (14E4:170C) and Broadcom Dell Wireless (14e4:4328) Sound: SigmaTel HD Audio *Tools needed: EmpireEFI boot CD, Retail Snow Leopard DVD, Chameleon RC4 bootloader package, Snow Leopard Combo Update package. 1. Snow Leopard Installation: *Download EmpireEFI BootCD for Core2 and burn to a CD. After that, boot up from this CD, wait for the menu screen, insert the retail Snow Leopard DVD, press F5 after 30 seconds, select that DVD and start installing the OS. http://onetimesales.com/drivers/macosx/boo...elCore2.i57.zip *Create 2 or more partitions if you plan to have other OSes installed on the same HD. Select GUD scheme if you want to install Windows 7 together with OSX. *After Snow Leopard installation is completed, remove Snow Leopard DVD, reboot from the same EmpireEFI CD, select Snow Leopard partition, update your OSX to 10.6.3 from Software Update or downloaded ComboUpdate file, along with other necessary updates. *Open the CD, look for a file called Preboot.dmg, open that image file, copy EXTRA folder to Snow Leopard partition of HD. *Installing Chameleon RC4 bootloader: boot the system from EmpireEFI CD again and select Snow Leopard partition, copy Chameleon RC4 package to the desktop and extract it to a folder. Go to Application > Utilities > Terminal, and type these commands: (assuming Chameleon RC4 folder is rc4, your MacOSX partition is disk0s2) cd Desktop/rc4/i386 fdisk -f boot0 -u -y /dev/rdisk0 dd if=boot1h of=/dev/rdisk0s2 cp boot / *After this step, boot the system without the BootCD. MacOSX should boot directly from the hard drive. 2. Install drivers: (Alternate download location: www.onetimesales.com/drivers/macosx) *Install TSCSync kext first to fix Core 2 issues using Kext Utility for Snow Leopard *Install Framebuffer_Disabler.kext.zip using Kext Utility for Snow Leopard *Install SleepEnabler.10.6.x.zip *Install VoodooSDHC.kext.zip *Install TimeSyncFix.zip *Broadcom BCM440X LAN card: Download IONetworkingFamily.kext.10.6.zip and AppleBCM440XEthernet.kext.SL.zip from NETWORK directory, install each kext using Kext Utility for Snow Leopard http://www.kexts.com/view/129-kext_utility...8update%29.html *Broadcom Dell Wireless card: Snow Leopard should automatically detect your wireless card, if not you may need to use the tool called bcm43xx_enabler *Sound card: install VooDooHDA 2.1 kext *Video card: Download OSX86 Tools, open the tool, select Add EFI strings/Boot Flag, go to GFX string and customize your video card with the same RAM size and video output type, generate the strings and copy it to com.apple.Boot.plist from EXTRA folder in the section: <key>device-properties</key> <string>video graphics strings here</string> 3. Make a backup image for your OSX hard drive or partition as it helps a lot for testing new drivers or updates.
  7. Dell Inspiron 1525 DVD/CD Drive not working!

    Have you tried a new way of installing Leopard with RETAIL Apple DVD? Search for BOOT-132 image that works with your system. You also need to get a RETAIL Leopard DVD (not DVDs that come with Mac desktops or laptops). That should solve your problem.
  8. Have you tried to install Leopard 10.5 with the retail Apple DVD? You will not have any problem with SATA DVD drive if you use that installation method. Get the Boot-132 CD and download the RETAIL Leopard DVD. Good luck!
  9. In order to use a different internal Wireless card with any HP or Compaq laptop, you must HACK the BIOS. You must be very sure of what you are doing because you can completely destroy the laptop BIOS and the laptop becomes useless. Below are some basic steps to edit your BIOS: *Open BIOS file WHP with Phoenix editor program *Run Hex editor and open the ROM file TEMP folder of Phoenix program location *Find the device and vendor string of the network card from the list *Change the device information to a new network card and save the file *Back to Phoenix editor and make changes to "BIOS Configuration Parameters" by selecting "Multiboot III" > "Boot Fail Recovery" > change Value to * to enable this option *Save and rebuild the BIOS If anyone is interested in how to hack the BIOS, I can share more epxerience with you.
  10. Broadcom Gigabit Ethernet card

    Do not use the installer, because you have to edit your hardware ID and in the kext file and then update that kext file. Therefore, you have to do it manually as I showed in the steps. Go ahead and remove all AppleBCM files in the Extensions folder.
  11. Broadcom Gigabit Ethernet card

    Download driver: www.onetimesales.com/drivers/macosx *Install the kexts from BCM57XX-General.zip to Extensions folder as instructed in the readme file *Open AppleBCM5751Ethernet.kext from Extensions folder and add the correct device and vendor ID in Info.plist file *Copy AppleBCM5751Ethernet.kext/Contents/MacOS/AppleBCM5751Ethernet to desktop and edit with Hexedit *Find and replace all occurrences: "66 81 FA 7D 16" with "66 81 FA xx 16" (xx is part of device ID) *Go to address 376C0 and replace "F8 08 75 59" with "F8 08 74 59" *Copy the modified AppleBCM5751Ethernet back to the original location in /System/Library/Extensions/AppleBCM5751Ethernet.kext/Contents/MacOS. *MAC address gets assigned correctly, and DHCP works perfectly. If you have any difficulties with your NIC, everyone here can help.
  12. Get nvdarwin 1.2.3 from onetimesales.com/drivers/macosx Use safe mode switch -x at boot prompt with F8 You can buy a cheap wireless G internal card from ebay (Dell 1390 or Atheros) and Leopard can detect it automatically
  13. The NVIDIA 9500GT Thread

    Try this installation method: (Alternate download location: www.onetimesales.com/drivers/macosx) Download NVIDIA_9000_Series_Driver_v2.zip and NVDarwin 1.2.3 before installing the video card. Your system may not boot up correctly after installing Leopard 10.5.5, but you can boot up with safe mode switch (-x) to bypass it. When you have Mac OSX loaded successfully, just run the installation from NVIDIA_9000_Series_Driver_v2.zip first. After rebooting, install NVDarwin 1.2.3 next. Reboot the system again, you should have Geforce 9000 with full resolution and QE feature.
