  1. Update: I guess the problem was that when I registered my fingers on my right hand in Vistax86, then deleted the OS to install Leopard, it kept the fingerprints in the scanner (HW and not the SW). When I registered someone else's finger, I was able to make an account and then finally delete the other user's fingerprints. The option wasn't available until I made the first account! =( Don't register all your fingers on 1 OS!
  2. Using Terminal: sudo -s <password> cd /System/Library/Extensions/AppleACPIPlatform.kext/Contents sudo nano Info.plist <string>AppleACPIPlatform</s> <k>CFBundle... <string>1.1.0, Copyright... ... <string>com.apple.driver.AppleACPIPlatform</s> <k>CFBundle <string>6.0</s> ...CFBundle Version String ...1.1.0 ctrl-X cd PlugIns ls ...Buttons, EC, and PCI.kexts Where do I get AppleACPIPowerSource.kext? Which version do I modify it to?
  3. To be honest, I didn't have any bluetooth devices to pair with the computer so I never looked at it... When I did check it , no HW was listed. http://forum.insanelymac.com/index.php?showtopic=15474 has a little section on Bluetooth that seems to recommend changing the firmware while in Vista (downgrading). I'll try it out and post results as soon as I have something to test edit: --Just wanted to ask: Been noticing that everytime I reboot/shutdown it freezes with the screen off, but not quite shutting down all the way (power still going to the bluetooth indicator and doesn't reset). I have to hold down the power button to fully power it off. I thought I read something about it, but my searches are coming up empty. Any help with this one? --Also installed the PowerManagement.bundle from the above links (v137_1) but nothing coming up for the battery. Odd that iAtkos installer had this working =(
  4. I was able to download and install the Protector Suite, but after going through the tutorial, and trying to setup enrollment, it appears it won't register any of my fingers. -I finish tutorial -Setup with users able to create, modify, delete // Login w/ pw or swipe -Keychain on or off -Click index finger and swipe to enroll Error "This fingerprint has already been enrolled!" I've tried this with multiple fingers, to no success. No one is enrolled. No options are available to do anything except enroll when starting the app. Is there a way to reset the settings? Google options are limited to PC fixes and deleting registry keys.
  5. I want to thank Macgirl and all the folks who put these installers together for this amazing resource. I just got my Dell XPS M1330 4 days ago, and have spent a grueling 4+hrs/day trying to get a Leopard/Vista x64 dual boot system operational. Stats: Dell XPS M1330 13.3" WLED backlit LCD T7500 2.2Ghz Core 2 Duo 3 Gb RAM, 160Gb 7200rpm HDD 128 MB Geforce 8400GS Intel Wireless N, Bluetooth 2.0 I learned about the Hackintosh projects from an article in Lifehacker and decided to give it a try when I got my laptop. Following the instructions of those above me, I obtained a copy of iAtkos1.0 r2 and started with a fresh install. Loading the installer disc, I went ahead and formatted the HDD creating 2 partitions. I installed Leopard on a 25Gb partition with the MBR, and left the rest in FAT32. After a couple of problems with the dreaded blinking cursor (gParted showed the Leopard partition flagged w/ Boot), I popped in a Vista CD and Leopard seemed to load ok from that point on. Strangely enough the Vista CD was corrupted, so not sure how that worked. A couple pointers that other users might run into: ==Installing Punk's Nvidia installer seemed to work (after going into Terminal and removing NVDAResman.kext), but I was stuck w/ 1024x768 resolution, and the proper driver didn't seem to load. JCarcinogen's seemed to work better for me, with the 8400GS coming up in the System Profiler. ==I feel like I'm kinda stuck right now w/ my unsupported Intel Wireless N Card. Looking forward to seeing progress in those respective threads. This was my first time working with the MacOS to this level, and I'm glad that these resources were around! Thanks again!
