  1. xserve diy hackintosh ?'s

    im looking to buy a xserve g5 rack mount case and build a hackinosh xserver to use for co location.. has anyone done anything similar before? i haven't found 1 thread on it in the searches.
  2. i have this old pos laptop that im surprised can even run osx at all, but i tried to give it another go and get something working even if its barely working.. and i got 10.5.5 installed using ideneb disk. now i notice i have the same issue i had the other time i had osx installed (10.5.0 at that time) the issue is basically if i boot the laptop off the battery the spinning wheel on grey boot screen goes slow, and then when i get into the os the pinwheel spins and basically the whole os seems like its suuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuper slow to do anything. but if i boot with it plugged in its fine, and if i unplug it at that point its also still fine.. so i am just curious what causes this and is there any fix.
  3. PC EFI vs. Chameleon EFI

    im curioushow the software raid support will compare to my rocketraid 2300 i am running right now (3 750gb seagate sata booting os x) i get pretty good scores on xbench, but my boot times suck. on the grey apple screen with spinning wheel i have @ 25 spins of the wheel before it boots, where as a single hd with my setup spins like 4-6 times and its booted up.
  4. iSight on OSX86

    i have the same issue.. in system preferences/sounds i have no audio input from my isight. and in ichat i can see a video preview fine, but i dont see any audio on the guage. also if i open quicktime and make a new video recording it shows me basically a snapshot pic and if i click record it doesnt show anything being updated in the preview and when i click stop it says error no data recieved or something like that.. my mobo is asus formula maximus and my osx install is leopard 10.5.3 and is working 100%
  5. root password issue

    for some reason this install of leo seems messed up in regards to the root user. i think i might have made 2 admins and deleted one when i first got the os up and running because of time machine restore hanging on installation.. anyway. the issue now is if i try to install an app like pref pane or screen saver or anything that asks if you want to install for the whole system, or just this user, will not install correctly for the system. i enter the root pw corct but it always ends up failing on the install, but it will install for the single user. i think something somewhere is currupted but never had this issue before.. and i know my root pw is fine.. i use bash 24/7 so id know if it was wrong
  6. adobe photoshop cs3 wierd issue

    nobody uses photoshop cs3?
  7. sorry i posted this in 1 other forum,.. didnt know which one was the proper place.. k i have osx on 1 disk, and i had vista on a 2nd separate disk and vmware automatically detected it and setting it up to run vista was a breeze. now i have that 2nd disk set up as a dual boot, and i have vista and xp on it.. it is functioning fine, and if i boot the 2nd drive the boot manager lets me choose which os (vista or xp) and i can run either fine. but now vmware doesnt detect either os automatically and i need to know if its even possible to set up vmware manually, sort of like how parallels works where you specify a disk and partition. if i switch to using a diff bootloader like acronis or grub will that fix this? id hate to have to go buy a few seperate hds just to run these os. i already have enough hds as it is(for osx ).
  8. ok i have osx on 1 disk, and i had vista on a 2nd separate disk and vmware automatically detected it and setting it up to run vista was a breeze. now i have that 2nd disk set up as a dual boot, and i have vista and xp on it.. it is functioning fine, and if i boot the 2nd drive the boot manager lets me choose which os (vista or xp) and i can run either fine. but now vmware doesnt detect either os automatically and i need to know if its even possible to set up vmware manually, sort of like how parallels works where you specify a disk and partition.
  9. ok i am running kalyway 10.5.2 and was running vista 64 in vmware fusion just fine as a bootcamp (vista on seperate hd) now i have that hd that had vista set up as a dual boot with vista64 and xp and i can boot into each one from vistas bootloader fine, but now in osx when i run vmware i cant boot vista64 or xp in it. it doesnt detect either os now.. is there a way to manually set up a bootcamp and target a specific partition on a disk like how we do it in parellels?
  10. i installed a copy of photoshop (adobe master collection dvd), and activated via telephone method. now i have a weird issue i havent seen or heard of and i know it cant be just me if i select the selection box tool (dotted line box) the cursor flickers from the tool cursor to the normal arrow cursor and the tool cant be used.. it only seems to do it with the selection box and it does it usally after @ 5 min of using ps and i have to restart and then i have a small window of time i can actually use the tool before it starts back up. i have tested on 2 separate machines with 2 diff video cards, but both are kalyway 10.5.2 one machine is an intel badaxe2 mobo with 7300 gfx card. another is a asus maximus with 7950gtoc gfx card.
  11. Bluetooth Dongle for OSx86?

    ywisted vegas what issues did you have with mighty mouse? mine works great and all of the sudden it stops working and i have to unplug my dongle and put it back and toggle bluetooth off and on in the taskbar to get it to come back.. its annoying because i have to connect a usb mouse to do this. i know for a fact the mouse is not defective because ive bought 2 diff ones and they both do it.. its possible its the dongle, but i dunno..
  12. has anyone had bluetooth lockups? i cant tell if its my dongle that is causing it or its the hackintosh or mightymouse. every once in a while my mouse stops responding and i have to yank the dongle out and back in to get it to start moving again . and sometimes itll cause a major crash when uiresponder locks up and cant be restarted. sometimes when i yank and out it back my mouse still works but it ets detected as a regular mouse, not a mighty mouse.. kinda wierd.
