  2. yeah...Visualhub will not do mkv files...search Google...there are free mkv file converters out there
  3. If you are on a Mac then use Visualhub...if on Windows Then use DVD Shrink to shrink the DVD to burn to a DVD
  4. I have almost the exact same specs as the original poster for my Dell XPS 420 But I can't get past the boot screen from the iAtkios DVD. I get the infamous circle with a line crossed through it.... I have followed the directions to a T! lol oh well....maybe its time to buy an iMac........
  5. So how much were you looking to get for it?

    That does not mean he was telling you the truth. After all he was trying to sell you some thing..... Only time will tell and it is only 2 months away so it will be worht waiting for.....
  9. I can understand your frustration and have had some of the same experiences. But some of these people have taken the time to learn and follow all of this technology. Sometimes it takes years to learn some of this stuff. Not from a book or tutorial but from experience. Some of these guys this what they do. They are programmers IT professionals. Remember that they are here helping people because they WANT to. Not because they have to or are selling a product. So be paitient take the time to learn....hangout in the IRC chat channels. Ask people for help via PM or email. But know that they don't have to help anyone! They are doing it for the enjoyment of helping others and to hone their skills. But no one is under any obligation to help you at all! There are some basic skillsets that are needed to do theses hacks and mods. Most of that is assumed by the tutorial posters. these hacks and mods are not for everyone so put in your time and be patient. Geekdad
  10. Well I have both a MBP and Dell XPS Hackintosh. I think there is a real need that Apple is not filling right now. I need a desktop that I can upgrade the video card or even upgrade the CPU. I think there is real market for a desktop solution that is not a MacPro or an iMac but somewhere in the middle. That is my need so therefore I hack! :-) I have been a longtime Apple owner and influence my friends to buy Apple when ever I can. I bought Macbooks for my sons for school. BUT Windows keeps me employed. I do Data Security for a fortune 500 company and we aren't switching to Macs anytime soon.......or ever.

    Fedora 11 out...

    Has anyone dual booted Fedora 11 and their Mac or Hackintosh? I installed it but I can't get it to boot. I booted to the live CD and it installed it on my macbook and it even restarted into Fedora the first boot. I shut my mac down and now it doesn't even see the Fedora partition. Any ideas? Thanks Geekdad
