  2. Dual Boot Windows/Mac Leopard (HELP PLEASE!)

    This is what I did. Connect OSX Drive to Sata Port 0 Connect Windows Drive to Sata Port 1 OSX will load first if you have Chameleon 1 installed - When you are in Leopard Install Chameleon 2 - Now restart. When the computer load's up, it will load Chameleon 2, you will now see two hard drives - You can now dual boot.
  3. congrats! I just made a purchase too! bought it yesterday

  6. World of Warcraft on Hackintosh

    Congrats! let's see some of those sexy screen shots! Hmm IDeneb should not be slowing down your computer in any way, and regarding to your question about Multi-core, In my experience Leopard use's all my cores to run any program's loaded. When I play WoW, all 4 cores are being used, in window's it only use's two. I always play in fullscreen and a turn off shadows, it helps my fps a lot there. Congrats on your Hackintosh! Hmm interesting that why your getting lower fps on your hack. It could be drivers, Have you tried a Nvidia card? Tweak some settings and play around. Took me a while to get my system top notch.

    I had this problem before, what version of osx are you running? I installed to 10.5.6 and i was able to install. I believe it could be the carbonlib file, Hope that helps!

  14. Leopard on Quad Core Q6600

    Q6600 Everything works here perfectly. My Mac Pro #2 is more stable than my first. I think it could be that I have IDE drives in my mac pro #1 causing it to be unstable.
  15. Just a little help please.

    Hmm... try to use the Ideneb distro install cd. Works great for the P5K Series Mobo's
