  1. Problem with VMWare 10.4.9 (Video Included)

    Used the "Windows NT" VM selection and only selected the base install without the extra patches, apps or drivers and it worked! When I installed everything I got the same result as you. Note: I am using VMware 5.5.5. I also found that changing the partition type to MBR (Dos Compatible) from the default GUID allowed it to boot without having to install to an external drive.
  2. will this motherboard work?

    Celeron CPUs are $40 (after rebate) over on Tigerdirect.com and you can get an ASrock Dual775 motherboard from Newegg.com for about $50. I would copy/paste the working motherboards from the WIKI hardware lists on newegg.com and see what looks like it would fit your needs. (The developer machines were based on the Intel 9XX chipset so those motherboards are the most compatible. Also they have onboard video GMA 900 or 950 which is OSX86 compatible right out of the box.)
  3. will this motherboard work?

    The ATI Mobility x200 CG and QE video modes don't work (seen as a VESA 2.0) and is locked in at 1024x768. The Audio doesn't work. The IDE/ATA interface can be patched to work properly. a USB audio solution could allow the board to have sound. Good luck!! A PCIE card could allow for better video.

    Hello, Some versions of photoshop run on WINE. You can check compatability here: http://appdb.winehq.org/appview.php?appId=17 Good luck.
  5. Hello! I 'm using a Blue and White single button Mac USB mouse (the dreaded hockey puck). I like the way that the "right-click" selection works in OSX86 (by holding the button for a second) and I wondered if there was a driver for Windows XP that would mimic this behavior. TIA!!!

    Scousi's ati kext activates the secondary IDE controller so you can use the cd/dvd drive. It also speeds up hard drive reads by a about a factor of 3x. Hard drive writing is as slow as the generic driver (0.35 meg sec).

    The hard drive is faster for larger transfers but slower for small file transfers. 6mb for the large transfers and 0.40mb for the small file transfers.

    I bought a "Mad Dog" USB enclosure for my old desktop CD-ROM and Hard Drive and find that both show up on the zv6000. I installed Mac Office 2004 and it copied fine from the cd. The USB hard-drive may actually be faster becuase of better USB drivers. I'll test it and pass along the results.
  11. 10.4.3 + Wesley's Patch and AMD 64 ?

    Search for zv6000 on the. forum The laptop has a AMD64 and an ATI x200.

    I got my ZV6000 running 10.4.3 the hard way. I resized the windows partition to create a 20 gigs of empty space. Then I created a partition using Diskpart in windows (using the creation method outlined in the Deadmoo install method). I installed 10.4.3 frome the patched DevDVD using VMware 5.5 with direct access to the real partition (note, VMware says that the DVD requests DMA programing at the point that it hangs at "waiting for root" in a "real" install). The chain0 method worked for 10.4.1 but I had to install a real boot-loader to automatically switch active partitions and select the OSX partition to boot from. WORKING: Built in ethernet. Built in Keyboard, external USB keyboard. Built in Trackpad, external optical USB mouse. Vesa 2.0 display at 1024x769x32 (Native is 1280x800x32). Firewire(untested) NOT WORKING: Powersaving caused the notebook to hang (turned off powersaving in preferences). Sound. DVD/CD Drive. Flash Disk Media Reader. Wireless Broadcomm Ethernet (haven't tried the airport driver, second ethernet is seen by the system but may not be enabled in BIOS the light in the wireless button is off). PC Cards (untested). Over all the system is as fast as windows, but a whole lot better looking. I'm using the PPC version of Firefox and a DSL connection throgh a router.
