  1. Fujitsu Siemens P7120 99,5% Tiger

    Man...Cool beans. I think I got most of what I need setup and it's great. VLC plays the DVDs fine (SimpleQuartz helps a lot - Turn off BeamSync!). Parallel Desktop doesn't work...but VMWare Fusion works fine. So I have an XP virtual machine running as well (I can't live without my Microsoft Money and RoboGeo). So pretty much a perfect all around machine. Audio is rather lacking...but oh well. I have a replacement keyboard from one of the vendors for my P7120. I asked them if they have a replacement wireless card for my 7120. I have the disassembly instructions I got from the LeoG forums, but it's not clear enough from the pictures to see if it's MiniPCI. So if it is MiniPCI, I'd love to replace the wireless to Atheros (like P7120-D models) and get the AirPort Express working as well while I'm replacing the keyboard. I'll let you know how that goes.

    Dang. Awesome work man. I actually did figure out my problem for most things. I was trying different kinds of kernels and stuff and got confused. When I install the 8.9.1 universal kernel with no-EFI kexts, everything is fine with my USB. No DMG issues or anything. Reboot, then install System/Installation/Packages/GMA900.fixer.pkg. Reboot again. This fixes whatever video issues and I can get Apple's DVD Player working on top of it....although...it skips like hell because it seems like it can't keep up. Maybe disabling Beamsync will help. Funny thing is, I do exactly what I do above, but with power managment (in others section) installed...DVD Player plays audio but no video. Strange. I tried re-installing about 15 times already with different configs and such. Stand-by kinda...works. The machine does come out of stand-by. My mouse pointer works but not the buttons. I press alt-window-esc (command-option-esc) for force quit (then wait...and wait...) and restart Finder...and I get the mouse back as well. If I had any USB devices (like external mouse) plugged in, I have to unplug and replug after...kinda lame. Oh well. -- I'll try to wifi trick...it'd be nice if 7120 had miniPCI so we can simply swap out the card, but I'm not sure. I have the disassemly instructions somewhere so I'll go check to see if it even uses a miniPCI...I doubt it...

    Hopefully, I'm not talking to myself. External USB does work. But it's not PIP. So if I plug something in, I have to reboot. Apple system update worked fine. All softwares updated okay. But I can't mount DMGs anymore. I tried clearing the system kext and cache etc... Oh well. I can't get DVD player to work. Tried VLC as well...

    Installed pretty straight forward. I thought I didn't need to do the wire trick since I didn't have any issues with the setup disk...but once it reboots after installing, I got a locked screen. Installed the wire-trick and it was straight forward. Bluetooth worked right off the bat, which is rather surprising. It's faster than my first generation Mac Mini right now. Crazy. Few problems I've noticed that I'll tinker with to fix: 1. External USB doesn't work for me. I think I picked the wrong setup options maybe? 2. Closing the lid doesn't put the machine to sleep. 3. Once I force the machine into sleep (by going into the menus and selecting sleep)...when it wakes up, it loses mouse buttons. Mouse pointers work fine...but I can't click on anything. 4. DVD does not play. I get "A valid video device could not be found for playback (-70017). I'll look into this as well. I'm currently running system update...to see if that'd go through okay. Hopefully, I can fix some little issues and this will be an awesome Sub Macbook!

    Great info. I had the DVD anyway so I started the install on my P7120. I selected what I can find. Selected the Optional SSE2 only kernel from Apr 2007 I think. Some power management options and Generic USB support. I'll let you guys know how this works out on my end.
