  1. This has nothing to do with your GTX470. GFX errors will show up if the blue screen does not come when it should, ie after NVDANV50HAL has loaded, network has initialized etc. This AFAIK is happening coz you dint put Disabler.kext. I am assuming you had a panic midway through the install. To fix this, boot into Windows and remove AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement.kext.

    Universal G5 Motherboard Bezel

    I would be in for 1 too.
  3. Simpler solution by me http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php...c=69634&hl=
  4. This is what I did. I connected it to my Mac. It showed the actual Model Number. I googled this model number and found out its an LG Panel, made by some chinese brand, just rebadged and sold. Then further googling got me the service manual, from which I disabled the logo. Simple. BTW AFAIK you cant remove the wait, coz thats the time it takes for the panel to initialize.
  5. Or more importantly, maybe the dongle is faulty. If it does not show in system profiler, thats prolly the case,
  6. Well, this is a hard one, I really dont think you can undo it, but you could use file undelete program, to see if it can find the previous music folder, and if yes, recover it. BTW iTunes is evil. I personally have a theory on is evilness. Back in the day when Bill Gates saved Steve Jobs (and Apple) he was like you get your money, but in condition that Microsoft is allowed to make just one of the Mac OSX apps. And iTunes was born.....

    Geforce GTX 260 weird snow

    This has happened to me a few times. Happens mostly if Snow doesnt detect a monitor plugged in. Now does this snow come on normal OSX use? I would suggest you update to the 10.6.4, apply the Graphic Patch and restore all NV related kexts to default. Once done remove all NVEnabler etc type of kexts and just use EFI Strings to get your card working. My GTX 260 works with just EFI Strings. Nothing else. No other modification. Period. I get full QE/CI even during setup because of this, not that it matters.
  8. I am having this weird issue. I cant access adobe.com on my Mac. But the same PC on windows can access it. Other PC's on network can and so can my Mac Laptop. kextstat | grep -v apple Index Refs Address Size Wired Name (Version) <Linked Against> 11 0 0xffffff7f8065a000 0x2000 0x2000 com.psystar.driver.OpenHaltRestart (1.0.3) <4 3> 15 0 0xffffff7f806a4000 0x2000 0x2000 com.superhai.driver.PlatformUUID (1.0.0) <4 3> 16 0 0xffffff7f806a6000 0x5000 0x5000 com.mojodojo.driver.VoodooMonitor (1.1.1d1) <7 5 4 3> 30 0 0xffffff7f80721000 0x4000 0x4000 org.netkas.fakesmc (2) <8 7 4 3> 32 0 0xffffff7f80734000 0x7000 0x7000 com.jmicron.JMicronATA (1.0.0) <31 9 4 3> 51 1 0xffffff7f8086e000 0xb000 0xb000 com.microsoft.driver.MicrosoftKeyboard (7.0.1) <25 5 4 3> 52 0 0xffffff7f80879000 0x3000 0x3000 com.microsoft.driver.MicrosoftKeyboardUSB (7.0.1) <51 33 25 5 4 3> 82 0 0xffffff7f810e3000 0x4c000 0x4c000 com.kXProject.driver.kXAudioDriver (1.11b0) <81 9 5 4 3 1> 84 0 0xffffff7f81131000 0x8000 0x8000 jp.plentycom.driver.SteerMouse (4.0.1) <50 33 25 5 4 3 1> 94 0 0xffffff7f81227000 0x4000 0x4000 com.evosx86.driver.lspcidrv (1.0) <4 3> 105 0 0xffffff7f81254000 0xd2000 0xd2000 com.vmware.kext.vmx86 (3.0.0) <7 5 4 3 1> 106 0 0xffffff7f81326000 0xc000 0xc000 com.vmware.kext.vmci (3.0.0) <5 4 3 1> 107 0 0xffffff7f81332000 0x7000 0x7000 com.vmware.kext.vmioplug (3.0.0) <33 25 5 4 3 1> 108 0 0xffffff7f81339000 0xa000 0xa000 com.vmware.kext.vmnet (3.0.0) <5 4 3 1> 109 0 0xffffff7f81343000 0x35000 0x35000 com.paragon-software.filesystems.ntfs (82) <7 5 4 1> My hosts file ## # Host Database # # localhost is used to configure the loopback interface # when the system is booting.

    Anyone recommend a nice 24" hackintosh monitor?

    +1 for 2209WA. It is truly the best for its price.
  11. Use my config, it works perfect. I mean everything works
  12. Leopard should work. You could try moving the drives, though I guess the unsupported video card will cause a kernel panic. and BTW in OSX due to its micro-kernel, you can move disks across totally different configurations and it will work just the same.
  13. See as I said, if your gonna game, you might as well get a PC, or keep this one. But if gaming is not your thing, I personally found my Mac far better. Considering you have a GT220, I doubt gaming is your thing. I would recommend a Mac.
  14. As a previous iMac Owner and then seller, I faced the exact same dilemma as you. I bought a spanking new 20" Beauty on August 2007. She was absolutely brilliant, so nice, so thin, so perfect. I mean it was perfection. I used to own a PC before and had Mac running on it. It was Pentium4 and used to suck. With SSE2 and what not OSX would be slow and crappy. QE/CI was a headache. Hardware issues were a pain. My PC would be noisy (3-4 fans running). Plus I live in a coastal area, so corrosion was another big {censored}. Motherboards would die in 1.5-2 years. 3-4 Fans would also mean dust and maintenance. Over that games were slow and I just needed an upgrade. Scraped together some monies, borrowed some and bought a Mac. I had it for a year. The machine was brilliant 1) OSX ran so beautifully and everything was so perfect. VMWare would have XP running which would be constantly on CorelDraw or CoolEdit. Both are pretty CPU heavy and would run perfect. Never tried gaming VMWare. 2) It was so silent and thin. No noise whatsoever, just a slight hum at night when there was no noise at all in the surroundings. The computer would be sleeping half the time, and you would have no idea it was on. Just a click to bring it back. 3) Beautiful and perfect. The machine was absolutely brilliant to look at and everybody I showed it to was surprised that the whole computer was inside. 4) It included everything. I sometimes needed my computer in my bedroom to watch movies and stuff. I just needed to move the computer, keyboard and mouse. No need for anything else. Plus the remote meant it gave me a TV experience. And then came GTA4...December 2nd was not a good day. The 2600XT was just not good enough. The game was just not smooth. Gaming being one of my priorities, I made the very tough decision to sell my iMac. Sold it of for very close to what I spent on it. Used the money to my current system. Was lucky enough to get a system that was a perfect OSX machine. Config in sig. And it actually runs OSX as stable as my iMac. As fast, as perfect. Games run like a beast too. But every now and then, an EPIC FAIL happens and I have to fix it back up. SO to summarize For iMac Silent - Doubt that for a PC Thin Beautiful - You just cant beat the look of a Mac Integration - Speakers, Webcam, Remote, everything in one Resale Value No need to mess around For PC Gaming Upgradability - Kinda doubt that, with new stuff coming every year, makes more sense to sell the whole thing and buy new I hope this clarifies it for you. My final advice, buy a Mac. Even if you dont like it stay with it for atleast a year, then sell it for 70-80% of its cost and buy a kickass PC. By the Corei7 will be really cheap. OOOH and the Fermi will be out. BTW: I just noticed we have more or less the same config. If your selling can I have ur Velocitiraptor for cheap
