    dell d610 wont boot without dvd image

    There is a "hardware" hack for the intel gma chipset if you are using it. I am posting this from a d610 with that hack right now. for the life of me, i cannot remember the term for the hack. it's an external display issue. it's essentially a couple paper clips that short out some ports on the external vga port.

    The d610 and d620 are actually quite different. d620 is dual core, for one. I think the default graphics adapter is different as well.

    10.4.3 broadcom wireless effort

    I have a Dell D610 with 1370 MiniPCI (Broadcom 4318). I cannot get OSX to see it at all. I am hoping to get a 1350 from a D600 soon, I see that those work. Thank you everyone for all of your hard work!
  4. I have a D610 with the Radeon Video Chipset. (snipped from another thread) The standard resolution in OSX x86 is 1024×786. A bit small for most PC’s. To change this, follow this guide: - Delete any ATI*.kext files from /System/Library/Extensions/ - Open the terminal (in OSX: Applications > Utilities) - Type in: sudo pico /Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/com.apple.Boot.plist - Add: <key>Graphics Mode</key> <string>1400×1050×32</string> - Save the file - Reboot your computer ------- I have yet to successfully get networking working. using either 10.4.1 install or 10.4.3 (and even 10.4.4 drivers). I think it has to deal with the PCI express bus for the onboard NIC. Wireless *should* work with the Dell 1370 but I haven't seen anyone else with it working either.

    Errors during installation of "essentials"

    The MD5 is for checking the validity of the file. if you search on google for md5summer, you will be able to use that program to check the .iso to see if it's not corrupt. Your DVD problem sounds like a bad burn. I have the same image burned to dvd and didn't have any problems on 2 separate DVD drives. You might want to try burning slower. The MBR problem could be fixed with a dos boot disk (with fdisk on it) when you boot to dos, run the command "fdisk /mbr" that should replace the broken one with a backup of the XP MBR.
