  1. I just bought a black one with ship date of 9/23. I imagine it has a GMA 950 and the x4500 spec is a mistake. However - don't you think the Atom is a little pokey for Leopard? I haven't read much about the MSI Wind's that run it.
  2. Hey -- thanks for the hard work on this detailed guide. I'll try it this weekend.
  3. I now see that Kalyway's install notes say that built-in firewire is a '"system requirement". Is it really? I haven't seen much discussion of this. If so, is it a requirement in iatkos? Thanks, pals.
  4. Is removing this kext the solution to the problem or is there a more appropriate fix? Or, in other words, do I need this kext to avoid frying my motherboard?
  5. I just got it installed, it seemed to work fine; however, it gets a Kernel Panic at boot. I tried reinstalling without Speedstep - same deal. I can boot into Leopard in safe mode though using -x. I'm a total noob - appreciate any help. Thanks. Here's the message I get in -v: ACPICPUThrottle: ACPI returns no ACPI throttling available ACPICPUThrottle: Intel processor detected, family=6 model=f ACPICPUThrottle: Using direct drive of Intel Speed Step Technology ACPICPUThrottle: Setting CPU0 to powerstate 1 ACPICPUThrottle: rtc_cycle_count=75000000, newcount=50000000, cutoff=50000000 panic (cpu 1 caller 0x5B2DE24): "rtc_clock_stepping unsupported"@/SourceCache/xnu/xnu-12280.2/osfmk/i386/rtclock.c:263 Debugger called: (panic) ----------- Lenovo ThinkPad R61i 7650 - Core 2 Duo T5250 1.5 GHz - 15.4" TFT 2 MB - L2 cache 4 GB (installed) - DDR II SDRAM - 667 MHz - PC2-5300 ( 1 x 512 MB ) 80 GB - Serial ATA-150 - 5400 rpm CD-RW / DVD-ROM combo 15.4" TFT active matrix 1280 x 800 ( WXGA ) - 24-bit (16.7 million colors) Intel GMA X3100 Sound card Fax / modem - CDC - 56 Kbps Network adapter - Ethernet, Fast Ethernet, Gigabit Ethernet, IEEE 802.11b, IEEE 802.11a, IEEE 802.11g Intel PRO/Wireless 3945ABG Keyboard, TrackPoint, UltraNav
  6. I've finally gotten Kalyway 10.5.1 sort of partially installed. I have the cursed "blinking cursor", but if I leave the DVD in, it boots to the "Welcome - Do you own a Mac" screen - and then I'm stuck in that loop. I've seen the solution in post # 278 on this page: http://forum.insanelymac.com/index.php?sho...7069&st=260 which requires booting in single user mode - the problem is that my computer goes straight into the gray apple screen or the Darwin installation DVD. Any solutions on getting into "single user mode" to fix this? ---------- ThinkPad R61i Intel Core 2 Duo T5250 1.5GHz -Enhanced SpeedStep Technology Memory: 4GB Intel GMA X3100 DDR2 SDRAM Shared PCI Express Intel PRO/Wireless 3945ABG 54Mbps Wi-Fi IEEE 802.11a/b/g Mini PCI Express
