  1. Ok, I have searched and sadly not found a master list of working cards. I am looking into buying a new card for my laptop and i need one that is fully functional and does not need ktext (if possible). Any low cost suggestions. I have read about brocom and dell ones but do these work universally on laptops, i have an hp g50 112nr. Thanks a lot, please help if you can.
  2. GMA X4500

    I have the intel gma 4500mhd too. I understand that there is no working drivers for it but is there any way to force it into 1280x800, i tried the command lines and i dont have a boot.plist file. Any thing at all that can up the resolution, kext, anything? If not i think i will have to render my laptop un-macable because i cant stand to use its great display in 1024x768. Has anyones tired any external apps. Also has anyone got the eithernet working on an hp g-50 112nr. Thanks a lot and good luck to other 4500 users
  3. I just installed leopard on and intel Pentium dual core cpu and i got the hfs+partition error. Now i have herd of a fix for this by entering single user mode in darwin. Now at the countdown i press f8 and it goes directly to bootup of leopard and i cant enter the commands. What is wrong or is there any other way to enter the command though leopard desktop like they way you perminately change the resolution.
  4. I am about to install kalyway 10.5.2 and i have been hearing about people using the disc manager to do the partitions, if so how (it can be really brief) and if not what is the best/easyest/free software. Also im using a 4500 mhd and as far as i know its not compatible with leopard this just means i wont be able to take advantage of graphics right? and that i still will be able to instal it. THanks a lot and let me know if im using the wrong hackentosh version for my pentium dual core (not core duo) processer. Thanks a lot everyone Ps. I know wifi does not work for most people, do the little linksys or netgear usb thumb wifi things work?
  5. No way... when i first used os x86 on my homebrewn desktop i got the same error, it took me like 5 hours to fix and i could just switch the ide cables. I hope the best for you...and me. Anyone have any ideas. I post my results but it will be a few days.
  6. Ok I just got a hp G50-112Nr from black friday and i am about to download a version of os x86 and before i download that big of a file i want to know whats the best edition for my computer. It has a Pentium Dual core 2.0GHz proceser an intel gma 4500mhd i want to get sound, reconized card and hopefully wifi. Anyways thanks a lot for your time and let me know what you think. Ps. Any advice of free partition software thats easy to use, preferably not in dos.

  14. I instaled JaS mac on my computer and i went through the whole hour long thing (3 times) and i kept an eye on it to make sure it worked the last time. It did, i rebooted and took out disc and then it did the apple "apple" loading screen with the loading circle. When it finished that apple dissapeard but the screen color was the same. Then i wait like 10 seconds then the screen looses signal but the computer is still on. If you could tell me what im doing wrong that would be great. I have already had to deal witht the still waiting on root devices error and this has screwed up vista. So any help would be really apriciated.
