  2. HELP!!! I just changed the firmware on my 5.5 gen 80gb iPod. The firmware works as far as the graphics goes, but all of my songs are missing. If I hook up the iPod to my computer and use Winamp, floola, or iTunes, all of my songs are listed. How do I get them to show in the iPod? Can I go back to the original firmware without losing my songs? Thanks
  3. I have been at this all afternoon. I installed 7 times and still can't get it to work. I have a Dell Dimension 5150 /e510. I have installed Vanilla, no vanilla, GUID, and MBR in different combinations and I just can't get it to work. It seems to install fine without Vanilla and either GUID or MBR, but I keep getting looped at the Welcome screen. I get as far as transfering files, which I select do not transfer files, then it loops back to the welcome screen. Any suggestions. I read all 54 pages of this post and ave seen this problem mentioned several times, but no one has posted a solution or even any ideas of what to try. I might just give up... Help!!!! Thanks!
  4. I also have a DV6500t and I just installed the Jas 10.4.8 OSX and it recognized my HD right away. I did make a new partition using the disk tool though and the hd was blank to start with. Anyone able to get the 8400M GS working? If so, how did you do it? Other things not working... 1. Audio - realtek hd audio 2. Intel Wireless 4965AGN 3. NIC - Realtek RTL8101, not sure if this works or not. I didn't try it. 4. Driver for the touchpad? Any help would be appreciated...
  5. I really do not want to run Vista as a virtual machine in OSX. This would defeat the purpose of having a powerful system to use with Vista, basically crippling my hardware under OSX. I don't need to run both at the same time, but want to dual boot. Is the Jas 10.4.8/9 not capable of this? I have dual booted with vista under older versions of OSX. Do you have a link for the Intel Pro 100VE nic to get it working? I have edited the kext as I have done in earlier versions of OSX but it doesn't work... Thanks
  6. I am having some major problems getting my dual boot to work... My system: see signature... OSX image: Jas 10.4.8 / 10.4.9 update Install: Vista Business 32bit on disk0 partiton 1 OSX 10.4.8 on disk0 partiton 2 What I tried: OSX installed works fine, changed Vista partition to active, can boot into Vista... then did the following to get the Vista dual boot menu by adding chain0. Rebooted and saw OSX and Vista under the boot menu.... When i try to boot to OSX I get an error. So I then boot back into Vista with no problem. I then tried downloading EasyBCD 1.52 and using it. I first removed the OSX entry and then when I put it back, it points to /Deleted partition... Now I am lost. Any suggestions? If I change the OSX partion to active, I can boot into it, but loose Vista boot menu unless I change it back. Also can anyone point me in the right direction getting the Intel PRO/100 VE Network Connection working? Thanks in advance.

    Glad everything worked for you. Seems like the mactel movement has stalled unfortunately. Personally, I haven't even booted OSX in quite some time. The lack of drivers for my peripherals is hindering my transition. Hopefully there will be more compatibility with peripherals and applications. Then I will make the full time switch. Seems like vista will be out prior to total compatibility and we will see what it has to offer. If it is a good as OSX, then I may scrap the entire transition.

    No offense to anyone, but this is getting a bit out of hand. There is so much information in the forums that will help everyone. This thread is filled with please help me's... Read and search the forums. 99% of your answers are there, you just need to look. There are over 300 posts in this thread alone. Half of which could be deleted since they serve no valuable purpose besides people asking for help without describing anything. Prime example is the quoted post above. How are we supposed to know what you did or didn't do. Do you know how to download and burn the ISO? If no, then start there... If your system hangs after OSX starts, then that’s a different thing. We are not mind readers and I am tired of getting PM's asking for help because someone is new or doesn't know how to install. Do you want us to come to your house and hold your hand? Read. That’s how the rest of us got things working. What kind of system do you have? Is it a laptop or desktop? Did you build it, if so what motherboard? SATA is working for everyone else. What is your problem? I can go on and on... Read people!! Search people!! You know enough to find this forum so use it and don't expect people to give you every answer especially since you have no real question besides I don't know how. Take a look at other posts and see how descriptive they are. That’s what you need to do. Ask specific questions and search for specific information. This {censored} clogging up the forum is useless and I can see why people keep asking stupid :I don’t know how to install questions”, because they are to lazy to read all the posts since most of them are BS like this one. Sorry if I offended anyone, but there are those of us that keep answering the same question over and over...

    I have a Dell Dimenaion 5150 with Int. Sigmatel STAC9220 HD Audio and it is working with 10.4.5 using the AppleHDA.kext I posted above (post 306). The device is ven_8384, dev_7680 per windows xp device manager. I have received several PM's pretaining to laptops and the SigmaTel 9223 HD Audio. Apparently they are not the same and something needs to be changed in the kext to get it working. I've look at it and don't see where to add the device for the Sigmatel 9223. Does anyone know where the devices are listed? I reall don't know that much about the files. If you have a working SigmaTel 922x please post what version you have so we can figure out what works and what does not...

    Have you tried the kext and instructions I posted. I believe it works for all 922x audio. Try it and let us know...

    Glad it's working for everyone. Anybody able to get an ATi video card working at resolutions higher than 1280x1024x32. I have a Dell 24' 2405FP wide screen LCD that I would like to get at 1920x1200x32. I can get it with the GMA950, but I use the video card ATi All In Wonder X600 Pro in windows for my TV tuner and it is a huge hassle to take out the video card and replace it just to dual boot. Also I am getting artifacts from the mouse pointer with the ATi video card in. Anyone know of a fix for that? I also looked at Logitech's site to see if they had drivers for the intel macs yet and it says they will be updated soon. I miss my extra mouse buttons. I would really like to get all of my peripherals working...

    For the Sigmatel audio using 10.4.5 extract the AppleHDA.kext from the attached zip file and place it in your extensions folder and then open terminal and run the following: sudo chmod –R 755 /System/Library/Extensions/AppleHDA.kext and sudo chown –R root:wheel /System/Library/Extensions/AppleHDA.kext Now open Disk Editor and repair permisions then reboot... Reply with your Sigmatel 922X part number if it works. Also if audio in and out both work. Good luck! AppleHDA.kext.zip

    pm me with your email and I can send it to you. you have to do a: sudo chmod –R 755 /System/Library/Extensions/**file_name**.kext and sudo chown –R root:wheel /System/Library/Extensions/**file_name**.kext from terminal after you place the kext file in your extensions folder. I will email it to you zipped, so unzip it first... D
