  1. For USB, delete or better yet, move the file /System/Library/Extensions/AppleHPET.kext to an alternate name (i.e. mv /System/Library/Extensions/AppleHPET.kext /System/Library/Extensions/AppleHPET.kext_save). This worked for me and I am running 10.6.4.
  2. @smiley2billion I got my wireless to work by finding a thread on this site. Search for iwi2200. There is a driver written for the Intel 2200bg. However, it only works for open networks (no security such as WEP, WPA, WPA2, etc.). There is also a GUI called nsGUI which is used to manage your connections. Regarding sound, I searched the forum for Taruga's AppleHDA sound patcher and used the Stac9200-i.txt file to make it work. Both came from Taruga and can be found by searching the forum. My signature gives an overview of my rigs! Cheers!
  3. Well everyone, After reading through the forums, I found the error of my ways .... it turns out the XPS M140 or Inspiron 630m requires an external monitor to be connected in order to boot. You can also jumper some of the pins - can't remember which ones, or make yourself an equivalent dongle. Now I have 10.5.2 running on my XPS M140! I appreciate all the help here! This forum is great.
  4. I also have a Dell XPS M140 laptop and I cannot get OSX Leopard or any other distro including Tiger to install. Here are my specs: Hard Disk: 78GB IDE CD-ROM: Dual Layer DVD +-RW Graphics: Intel 915GM graphics adapter with 8MB of memory Display: Laptop display 14.1" wide XGA supports 1280x800 Audio: Sigmatel 9200 NIC Wireless: Intel pro wireless 2200GB NIC Wired: Broadcom 440x 10/100 Integrated controller Chipset: Intel i915GMS/i910GML Southbridge: ICH6-M Processor: Pentium M750 Dothan Socket 479 MMX,SSE,SSE2 1.86Mhz single, not hyperthreading capable RAM: 1024MB DDR2 SDRAM I also disabled the following BIOS settings: Modem is "disabled" Execute-disable bit capability to "off" Computrace to "disable" Speedstep enable to "off" USB Wake support to "off" All power management options disabled USB emulation is "on" I've tried Kalyway 10.5.1 official, JaS 10.4.8, JaS 10.4.9, iATKOS 1.0ir2, BrazilMac 10.5.0, etc. I am using -v and -x in the boot options. My hard disk is formatted as FAT32 with no operating system (boot flag is not even set). During the install, I get as far as the following: VID: family specific matching fails VID2: family specific matching fails loading dsmos ... Then I get a light blue screen and it just sits there forever. Has anyone experienced this and found a solution? Or, does anyone have any tips or information for me that I an try? Thanks in advance!
  5. Leopard ToH Blue Screen on Reboot

    Hi, I also have a Dell XPS M140 (equivalent to an Inspiron 630m) that I would like to install Leopard on. Unfortunately, when the GUI part of the installation starts, it just hangs. My XPS specs are: Processor: Pentium M 750 (SSE 2) 1.86Ghz Chipset: Intel i915 GMS/i910GML Southbridge: iCH6-m Display: Intel 915GM/GMS, 910GML Express NIC: Broadcom 440x 10/100 integrated controller Wireless: Intel Pro wireless 2200GB Sound: Sigmatel High Definition Audio I've tried to install BrazilMac Patched, Kalyway Official 10.5.1, ToH, and iATKOS 1.0ir2. Do I need to install from a USB DVD drive? My internal DVD is a dual layer. How have you been successful? Thank you in advance.
  6. I have always been a Windows user because we use Windows exclusively at work, but my passion was for Unix/Linux and the open source movement. However, after discovering this forum, I have put together OSX86 and I absolutely love it. I am now looking at purchasing many Apple products. I already have an iPod Nano, iPod Touch, Mighty Mouse, and Apple Keyboard. I am looking into purchasing a Mac Mini and also Time Capsule. Most of my applications are available for Mac. I've also tried VMWare Fusion and Parallels Desktop, although I don't use either of these now because of the availability of software on both platforms. I did find VM more stable, but I preferred the feature set of Parallels. Cheers.
  7. I just started into the Mac thing only about three weeks ago. I've been a long time Windows user, but prefer Linux. Some of the gang at work use Macs because of the clients they have to support. I thought I would give the Hack a try just to see what I really think of Mac OS. I must admit, I am using Leopard and have all the apps I need. I use Windows at work - only because we have to. However, I do flip back and forth because not all the apps I use are on a Mac. I use Word, Excel, Powerpoint, and Visio extensively. I installed VMWare Fusion on my Hack, so I can at least run those packages. I would be curious to know how people compare VMWare Fusion with Parallels, pros and cons of each, and what the general Mac population prefer. Cheers.
  8. @kdm I found my BIOS settings here: http://forum.insanelymac.com/index.php?s=&...st&p=551664 @David86 I have not experienced any issues with disk utility or ejecting media. Cheers.
  9. I had the same problem with my USB. I was using Darwin 9.0.0 Vanilla and then switched to Darwin 9.1.0 ToH kernel. The ToH version fixed my USB but them my sleep didn't work. I then used the Darwin 9.1.0 Vanilla from the Kalyway 10.5.1 official release and USB + sleep works. I did not have to change AppleUSBEHCI. Sorry I can't help you with your second problem... Cheers.
  10. iWork 08 won't launch

    Yes, your graphics card must support core image (CI) and quartz extreme (QE). If you go into "about this Mac" and look at your graphics card, check to make sure these are supported. If not, check the forums or nvinject.free.fr if you are using NVidia. All the answers will be there. A lot of the Mac applications require QE/CI - even Time Machine. Cheers.
  11. Cheers everyone. I found a solution to my sleep problem. I used the 9.1.0 Vanilla kernel instead of the 9.1.0 ToH kernel. I really appreciate everyone's help here!
  12. @P5W DH Deluxe@Leo 10.5.1 Thanks for the info mate! I ended up using the Vanilla 9.1.0 kernel from Kalyway's 10.5.1 official release and now my sleep is working. Wireless still doesn't work for me. I am using WPA with AES pre shared key. I think the wireless for this board only works open or with WEP. Cheers.
  13. @nicko_029 Have you tried Taruga's sound patch? You can find it in the forums under OSX / The X Labs / Apple HDA Cheers.
  14. USB Problem

    Since I upgraded to Darwin 9.1.0 from 9.0.0 it fixed my USB problem but now sleep is not working. Anyone running a P5W DH with sleep working, please let me know....I imagine it's just a BIOS setting. My sig is below. Cheers mates! [edit] Sleep is working now. I used the Vanilla 9.1.0 kernel from Kalyway's official 10.5.1. Prior to that I was using the 9.1.0 ToH kernel. Thanks everyone!
  15. @P5W DH Deluxe@Leo 10.5.1 How did you get your wireless working? Are you using the on-board Realtek 8187 wireless? Also, do you have sleep working? What BIOS settings did you use for sleep? One more, what is your mach_kernel version? Cheers mate!
