  1. it will, but it'll probably be a bit slow with that much ram. don't know about that wireless card. try a search. (the forums search is not very good, i suggest using http://######.com/osx86search/ ) did you use disk utility to format the drive as HFS+(Journaled) ? (warning: this will erase everything on the drive) try these bios settings: To your CPU CONFIGURATION section : MAX CPUID VALUE Limit (or similar) : Disabled Vanderpool or virtualization : Disabled CPU TM Function : Enabled Excecute Disable Bit (or called NX or XD on some mobos) : Enabled (the most important, if not enabled the result is reboot loop with vanilla kernel) To your POWER section : ACPI 2.0 Support : Enabled ACPI APIC : Enabled
  2. Yes, needs to be HFS+ journaled, so you'll probably have to install again. whichever partition map you use (guid/mbr) you need to choose the corresponding package in the installer ( i'm a bit unclear about if you are trying to install on a partition on a drive you already use or on a separate 30GB drive - if it's just a partition that might cause problems if the partition map is not correct (i've no idea what a windows drive would use - not formated a windows drive since the days of windows 95 ) maybe someone else can offer some advice on that point)
  3. (you may have fixed this, but i'm posting in case others are having the issue)i was having similar problems to this (see sig for specs). The S is the start of the next line ("Starting Darwin X86" or something similar). For me the issue was intermittent - i could boot up, but only about 1 in 10 times. (i was also have the "Hey we are going backwards" issue which was less frequent but also seems to be gone - in combination these issues made restarting a half hour procedure) The problem seemed to go away once i overclocked my processor. i can't really say what made the difference as i changed quite a few bios settings at the time, but some things i suggest trying (one at a time if possible so we can work out what the issue was): turn off legacy usb support turn off cpu spectrum spread update bios to latest version set pci-e frequency to 100 disable speedstep (in cpu setup) set powerstate to S3 only acpi 2.0 enabled i'm interested to know what processors people have if they are having this issue - is it an E2180 thing? to aid people searching: Using ACPI RSDP revision 2 found at i can't say for sure what the problem is, but did you set the partition map as MBR or GUID (i think you need to press options in disk utility to get the choice. i would suggest GUID) ? you need to choose one and make a note so you select the right option in the installeryou certainly need to format the disk as HFS+ Journaled in Disk Utility.
  4. during booting you should see a screen telling you to press any key to enter boot option (i can't remember the exact words). do this, and you will get a blinking cursor. type -v and press enter. you should then be able to see what's going wrong. report back on what it says otherwise we have no way of helping.

    I propose this to be the new standard benchmark

    http://browse.geekbench.ca/geekbench2/view/43248 thats 3994 for my E2180 overclocked to 3Ghz (see sig)

  7. anybody with a 7300GS who doesn't want to "respect the Dev", i've got dual vga monitors working with NVinject 0.2.1 the key seems to be the NVCAP value: 04000101080002000d0000000000010a00000000 (put it in the NVCAP field in the info.plist inside the NVinject.kext, remember to set the correct permissions etc.) found in this thread: http://nvinject.free.fr/forums/viewtopic.php?t=102 which has details on how to set correct permissions etc. for those who don''t know. maybe off topic for this thread, but i felt like, you know, helping others…
