  2. Resetting PRAM

    Hi, Is it possible to reset the PRAM for a Hackintosh? Using the same way as a real mac? Thank you.
  3. Hi, no disrespect to you what so ever, but this is like saying that apple has restricted mac users to only surf their websites. This is clearly not the case. I personally feel that apple should not make let their OS be used in PCs, but instead come up with a middle range, more affordable mac pro. I mean the apple "feel" is not abt just the software it's about the hardware and design of their products as well. But that being said, the OSx86 project is a wonderful way to have a "trial" of what you're about to spend a buck load of money on. So this community in my honest opinion is a good thing for apple. But what this Psy* is doing is making money out of some other person's hard work. To Harlock: I dun think that these ppl here are childish at all. It's not all abt the credits, you have to realise that if they are using these ppl's work so 1) they have to get their permission 2) they have to pay them something. Let's say you invented something and someone just stole that idea of yours and made a company out of it. How'd you feel? Wouldn't you sue their a$$ off? These are just my personal opinions, in no way did I mean to upset anyone.
  4. I read this. http://www.informationweek.com/blog/main/a...lone_maker.html He also said Psystar believes Apple's prohibition against third-party installations might not hold up in court: "What if Honda said that, after you buy their car, you could only drive it on the roads they said you could?" What kind of dumb analogy is this?
  5. Hi, Just to enquire, how come i dun see the update in my software update? It says my software is up to date. And I have not installed the Security Update 2008-002 v1.1. I only have installed the Security Update 2008-002 v1.0. Any1 else encounter this?

  7. External Display Issue

    Hi my model is V3136TU. Yeah I played around with the resolution and refresh rate and now whenever I plug in the VGA cable, both displays have many white lines running vertically. I have been wondering if deleting all the colour profiles in the coloursync folder would help. But I'm afraid that it might screw something else up. Btw nice to see another compaq laptop user.
  8. External Display Issue

    Hi there, I have a compaq lappy with osx86 installed. Ok here the issue. I have a Samsung LCD TV with VGA input. Usually I just plug it in and it will mirror my laptop, had set it to mirror the 1st time round i plugged it in, but today I went to play around with the resolutions and refresh rate for that display and now I screwed up the setup. Somehow even after I restart and off/on my TV it still remains the same. I think leopards remembers my TV setup. I need to know if there is a way to delete that display from my system so that I can so call reset it. Any help would be most appreciated. I really dun wanna re-install leopard again. Thanks.
  9. failed to count the number of files in

    Hi, just to add in, I too get alot of these "Failed to count the number of files in" errors but it does boot up eventully. And also are you booting from the DVD if so, you have to wait for it to finish loading. Mines takes abt 10 mins to load when booting from DVD. Very slow but thankfully I dun boot from the DVD often.
  10. Weird Problem

    Hi nkear5, thank you for your reply. I followed your instructions and made leopard the active partition. But now I just get a Blinking Cursor. So I had to make wimdows the active partition again. The Chain loading method is very fustrating. I have went into wimdows and made osx the default os. So now in XP bootloader after it times out it goes to darwin bootloader then after it times out if goes back to XP bootloader and it loops forever until I choose the OS myself. Is there a way I can make darwin choose osx after it times out? I dunno why now I have to use chain loading method I have been using darwin solely for sometime till I used time machine and everything was messed up. THanks.
  11. Weird Problem

    Hi Komeet, Thanks for the reply. I have tried that din work. Besides I have resolved it. I needed to use chain loader method. Funny thing is I have used darwin to load wimdows and osx directly. Now i need to know how to make os x the default os after darwin times out. Now it just shows me the diff OSs and waits for my input. Anyone?
  12. Weird Problem

    Hi, I have a Compaq v3000 laptop, I have been using osx86 on it for 2 months or so. I have re-installed leopard at least 20 before all without any problems. Now I have a weird problem after re-installing leopard I dun see Darwin Bootloader just a blinking cursor. What i did before was to install linux(ubuntu) on another partition to get the linux dump for the audio codec, but audio din work in linux as well. So I formatted the linux partition. After that I used that partition to create a time machine backup, after backup was complete I din not restore any file. I just played with time machine awhile. After that when I rebooted leopard would not boot. No darwin bootloader. So I re-installed leopard and still the same thing. So I formatted the time machine partition as well and still no darwin bootloader. Any 1 could advise me on what to do pls? I am now stuck with wimdows agains. Which really sucks. I need to get my osx again. THanks
