  1. ok, heres my situation. I have a Mac Mini, 1.83 Ghz, intel core 2 duo, with 2 Gigs of ram.. I want to run ATV4Mac (apple tv for mac) Which requires me to downgrade to Tiger, well i don't exactly want to dowgrade the entire machine, so i partitioned the drive into 2 slices, one for leopard, which im currently running, and one for the tiger installation.. I have the Tiger for into ISO on my MacBook pro, but i dont have any spare blank DVD's laying around. Is there any way i can "mount" this iso on a External hard drive, and a iPod in disk mode? Then hold in the option key during startup, and go from there? Also, i was wondering if it was possible to use remote install OS X on computers other than the MacBook Air? Thanks Guys.

    10.5.3 Available as an update!

    I am also in this situation. It would be nice for someone to rewrite his tut, it look like its rock solid but i can seem to understand alot of it. I will extrapolate here on some of were my problems are in the guide. I have highlighted in Red And Bold where my misunderstanding is. ---START--- Open Terminal/Finder/etc, go to System/Library/Extensions. start installing update. What goes where etc is? Monitor System/Library/Extensions folder, once AppleIntelCPUPowermanagement.kext appears there - remove it immideatly. u can use this little script for it, run as root, before starting upgrade while sleep 1 ; do rm -rf /System/Library/Extensions/AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement.kext ; done While in sleep 1? What does this mean? Do i run this script before, after, or as soon as i see the file appear? once update finished, press ctrl-c in terminal window, to stop script, don’t press restart ! after it, open this file in textedit - /System/InstallAtStartup/scripts/1 find there string /System/Library/Extensions/Dont Steal Mac OS X.kext and replace with this string /System/Library/Extensions/dsmos.kext or r3d3 if u use r3d3. then save it. This just means replace a file path, right?. how do i know if i use r3d3? now u can recover ur applesmbios/applehda/etc (didn;’t u forget to make backups b4 running update ?) and finaly press restart. How do i recover it? on first start it will do smth, without booting to gui, then it will reboot, it can take about 3-4 mins, then it shuld boot normaly, if u didn;t forget smth. smth? Huh? Whats that? of course it’s all for intel core 2 based cpus and intel mobos. and pc_efi. other users can use 10.5.1 kernel/system.kext with 10.5.2 system (like amd users or pentium-d) I have a pentium 4 processor, 2.66 Ghz, Will it work? What do i have to do special? ---END--- I know for a fact that I would like a more descriptive tutorial. Other than that the tutorial is great, and the feedback on it looks good too.
