  1. I had previously had the Kalyway 10.5.1 installed on my Acer 5570z. It's been working fine until my harddrive died on me. I have been re-trying to install this but it's been almost 1.5 years since I did it. I formatted the drive to Journaled and installed MBR. I get all the way thru the install and have the intro to setup an account. I remember that I had to bypass this and then setup later. I reboot and press F8 and type -s /sbin/fsck -fy /sbin/mount -uw / touch /var/db/.AppleSetupDone passwd root When I get to the last line for passwd root I get the error like this -sh: passwd: command not found What am I doing wrong? I wish I remembered exactly what I did. If any of you can help that would be great! Thanks!
  2. I am using this right now! I used Kalyway and it installed and got stuck at the registering page. Maybe try and reinstall once more. I think that happened to me once.
  3. Just wondering what is different in the installers that allows my SATA HD to be seen in Leo4All but not seen on Zephyroth rev1 or rev2. My hardware is ECS GeForce7050M-M (V1.0A) nVIDIA® Geforce 7050PV/nForce 630a Maxtor 320gb SATA HD Realtek ALC662 6-channel audio(Co-lay ALC 883 optional) On Chip (NVIDIAGeforce7050-based with 2D/3D graphic engine) Broadcom AC131 10/100 Lan Phy

    nforce 630a / 7050 pv geforce support?

    I have an ECS with NVIDIA Geforce7050PV/nForce 630a and NVIDIA MCP68PVNT Single Chipset. I have the same problems. I couldn't get Zephyroth v2 to even install on my SATA drive. Did yours find the SATA hard drive?
  5. Got the same thing on my Acer laptop. When there is a good fix I will do it.

    Does scrolling work on your touchpad?
  7. I was wondering if I got Kalyway working on an external USB harddrive for my Intel Laptop. If I took this install would it POTENTIALLY work if I put it on a AMD computer? I guess what I am wondering is Kalyway only for intel computers and I would need a install of Zephyroth on an external USB harddrive.
  8. I am using the Kalyway disc on my laptop. I installed it on a USB external drive successfully. So I bought a new 250gb 2.5in laptop for my laptop. I tried to partition it into three. Partition 1 is MacJournaled 40gb. Partion 2 and 3 is fat for vista and data for MacOSX and Vista to share. I go to partition and I get an error that resource is busy. What is wrong?
  9. I was searching for my post that has 'Airlink' in the title and went to both searches at the top and bottom of the page. Typed in Airlink and nothing came up. This really makes it hard to find help on topics if the search doesn't work.
  10. Thanks rocketscience! It worked instantly. Is the Airlink AWLL3028 a Realtek chip inside? Do you know if any of the Airlink PCI wireless cards work any other Realtek drivers? I would like to get a pci card for my desktop!
  11. I am trying to install Kalyway on my external HD. The GUID install didn't go work. So I wanted to try MBR method. However when I go into windows to try and reformat my external Hard drive it lets me reformat everything except 200mb. This partition is called a EFI and I can't get rid of it. OSX installer won't recognize my external harddrive now. What do I need to do to try to get this drive back to a virgin drive?
  12. I have an Acer Aspire 5570 T2080 laptop that has a small 80gb harddrive. It is almost filled up and has a hidden restore partition that I don't want to mess with. I found out that Kalyway will successfully install on this laptop. However I want to install onto a USB external IDE harddrive. I tried booting with Kalyway and it only sees the internal drive during installation. The USB drive doesn't show up. I tried doing a search and no topics came up.
  13. I have Vista on my 320gb SATA drive. OSX on a 30gb drive on IDE. How do I get a dual boot machine with my configuration? Do I need to change things in teh BIOS? I would like Vista to be the first choice then OSX the second choice. What do I need to do?
  14. I want a USB wireless WiFI card to work with my laptop. Fry's has them for cheap. Any of them work?
