  1. Leopard video keeps looping

    ok got it to work Had to manually create a root account but it works now. The next challenge - adding kexts. ANy idea how to do that? Thanks!
  2. Hi all, I have followed many of the awesome guides on this forum to finally (and almost succesfully) install OSX Leopard 10.5.2 (kalyway) on to my alienware m15x The install is a breeze with no apparent hiccups. The system reboots and goes into darwin which takes me into the leopard intro video Then it asks me for my keyboard and language etc and finally comes to the "Do you already own a Mac" screen for settings migration. I click "DO not transfer my information now" when i click continue, the system waits for a while and then takes me back to the leopard intro video again... Please help! Im so near... and yet so far from a working OSx86 install Thanks!
  3. Broadcom bcm43xx wireless driver [beta]

    you sir, have just made my day. I spent the past 8 hours trying to get the wifi working on my Compaq Presario V4000 with broadcom 4318. I didt all the manual edits but it didnt work. I used ur file, rebooted and it worked perfectly thanks again!! The only issue it seems to me right now is that the wifi is running a bit slow... topic of next investigation
  4. Presario V4000 almost works. No wifi

    i Did and finally did find 4318 (and noted that in my second post above) but it still isnt working so... any other ideas i can try?
  5. Presario V4000 almost works. No wifi

    hmm ok i did some more research and apparently, the device ID for the broadcom chip is 4318: http://forum.insanelymac.com/index.php?showtopic=13766 But after editing the files as mentioned here: http://www.insanelymac.com/lofiversion/index.php/t51881.html I STILL cant get wifi to work. my kext file now has all the device Ids from 4311 to 4330 (yup ALl of them) and i also changed the other file as per the steps above but still no luck with this. Help!!
  6. After half a night, I have managed to install OSX 10.4.9 on my Compaq PResario V4000 Spec: Intel Pentium M 1.73GHz Intel GMA900 (native driver selection in the install) ICH6 and ICH8 (native driver selection in install) Broadcom wifi Integrated audio (which works fine with the native drivers) ethernet (again works fine with the native drivers) the problem i have is - i cannot get wifi running because i have no idea what broadcom chip i have. Is there a way to figure that out in OSX or in bios or at boot or something? If anyone with the V4000 can tell me what broadcom wifi chip is inside, it would be awesome! Further - strangely enough, i do have bluetooth and it shows up in the finder bar on top! The hardware button seems to work as well when i switch it off, the bluetooth gets disabled, when i switch it on, the bluetooth is enabled. But no wifi. Is there ANYWAY to fix the wifi? Thanks!
