  1. Is it possible to install on an EP45-DS4 with this method? Thanks

  3. PLEASE follow up on this promise
  4. EasyBCD is just a gui for BCDedit. It needs the Vista bootloader to work, but this can be installed witout installing Vista itself. EasyBCD itself can be installed and used in either Vista or XP
  5. OS X on the MSI Wind, Before it's Released

    Could you adapt this? http://forum.insanelymac.com/index.php?showtopic=132916
  6. check out the MSI X320

    The real question is would you want a MacBook Air, let alone a clone? Personally, I'd want a full laptop with drives and/or a netbook Can't see the point of the Air 2 penneth
  7. 10.5.6 Released...? odd.

    Roll on Frinday!
  8. Just downloaded iDeneb 10.5.5

    In the BIOS there will be a section called SATA Mode. It will be set to either IDE or AHCI. That's all there is. It's probably under a section like Integrated Peripherals
  9. The 'upgrade' Leopard DVD is the full version. It's only called an upgrade because you can buy it separately from a Mac. Your Tiger DVD came with a Mac, but then Leopard came out and Apple gave you the option of 'upgrading' with a Leopard DVD so just use that
  10. "In case you are not already getting LCD and VGA video extract you VGA bios's with NiBitor or GPU-Z (in windows), then use NVCap Maker to find its proper nvcap string." I don't really understand this. Looks like I need to research each element you mention. I have my graphics and sound fully working with Kalyway using injector and patch mentioned in my sig, but this also knackers shutdown and my install is far from vanilla.
  11. Only my graphics (8400mGS) and sound (ALC268) are different. Can you help with adapting your method for my laptop? I've grabbed the latest BIOS Thanks PS "When I first tryed installing Os X in this laptop I discovered the DSDT table in the BIOS made impossible to use more than one CPU" How did you discover this was happening? With my Kalyway install I saw no errors pointing to this problem
  12. Hi Vood - thanks for this guide, I'd like to give this a go. I have the 7720g, which I'm running on Kalyway 10.5.2 with partial success. Your method looks like a definite step on Could you do me favour and list your detailed spec so I can compare the 5920/7720 because the specs do seem to vary from timeto time and in different countries. Thanks
  13. "Guess EFI-X isn't so bulletproof after all... See there http://forum.efi-x.com/viewtopic.php?f=20&t=456, I feel bad for people who paid a lot for this." Well Ilike to see the whole picture before dissing things. It's a matter of fairness Also from EFI-X forum (FAQ): "Q. Why Can't I update to 10.5.6 when it isn't even out yet? A. 10.5.6 as far as things are now does *not* break anything. But the thing is, even developers have received an unusually incomplete update so far. This probably happened in order to keep the specs of the new machines a secret until release. Wouldn't have been the first time. But as a matter of safety, Whitedragon advised EFI-X users to wait up a second when either the update is out or when we claim it is safe to update. It was just a measure of extra security, as for now we have no reasons to believe 10.5.6 could break up our installations " So please don't feel bad for me
  14. Hey vexel, that's what I like - nice and easy does it
