  1. No HDD?

    I had the same problem: I got a 120GB and an 80GB hard disk. both are on primary channel (120 => master, 80 => slave). the 120 is full of windows and on the 80 i made 6gb free for osX. so i got 2 partitions on the 80. the installer showed up no disk to install on. So i opened Utilities => disk utility and erased (formatted) the 6gb partition on the 80 with "Mac OS Extended (journaled)". The installer now sees the partition and i can install osX 10.4.3 Greetz and thx! G-Man
  2. Can't boot from DVD

    Try to enable "Legacy Emulation" in BIOS.
  3. argh, i can't shut up could some mod or admin split these posts so here we can discuss about the new iMac DVD.... @all insiders: Correct me if I'm wrong please: i don't think that's illegal to install MacOS X on native Intel Hardware (PC). Apple said it wouldn't be possible. But if we/you make it possible, it isn't illegal!
  4. why do you f*** yourself that up? it isn't possible what you said Now go back to topic here....
  5. btw @user2: if you sell an original, you have to deliver all your copies of that cd! so It wouldn't func either ^^
  6. which image do I use? OSx

    I posted it in another thread, there it was wrong, because he had no image file. But for you it could be a solution: Check the md5 Hash of the file with md5summer. so you know what image you have Here the Sums: 3665735d1b651b5a4ad15ca59ab40142 *macosx_10.4.3_8f1111_for_dtk_userdvd.dmg f086fa1cdd01013c9787dfd1e92c2078 *macosx_10.4.3_8f1111_for_dtk_userdvdunpatched.iso 16139ae55ac283c114a5231f85c3f54c *macosx_10.4.3_8f1111_for_dtk_userdvdpatched.iso "patched" means patched with JaS patch. If no sum fits, you maybe have an own build (wespley-patched or something). Greetings, G-Man
  7. [Edit] Sorry, should read before posting: You have an dvd! sorry! Check the md5 Hash of the file with md5summer. so you know what image you have Here the Sums: 3665735d1b651b5a4ad15ca59ab40142 *macosx_10.4.3_8f1111_for_dtk_userdvd.dmg f086fa1cdd01013c9787dfd1e92c2078 *macosx_10.4.3_8f1111_for_dtk_userdvdunpatched.iso 16139ae55ac283c114a5231f85c3f54c *macosx_10.4.3_8f1111_for_dtk_userdvdpatched.iso "patched" means patched with JaS patch.

  8. Dual Boot Problem

    Hmmm, the only thing I can say to your boot problem is, that I've copied chain0 to my Windows-Drive, maked an entry in boot.ini C:\chain0="Mac OS X4 x86" And installed OS X then (was 10.4.1, because .3 install doesn't work. but the boot process is the same). So I didn't had to change the active partition. For your problem with your resolution: I got the same problem. I couldn't select a higher resolution in SystemPreferences. But what worked was to specify the resolution by Hand in boot-config-file. Open your Boot-Config-File "com.Apple.Boot.plist" in "/Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration" and add the following: <key>Graphics Mode</key> <string>1280x1024x32</string> So you can specify the resolution with "WidthxHeightxColor" (for Vesa 2.0) or "WidthxHeightxColor@RefreshRate" (for Vesa 3.0). Greetings, G-Man
  9. Hi, I got another error while installing 10.4.3 (http://forum.osx86project.org/index.php?showtopic=7552) but this should not be the point. I want to ask at this place, what's the difference between the JaS-maxxuss Patch and the Maxxuss-Patch? I Got both and I think the only difference is, that the JaS Patch will be applied to the DVD image and the maxxuss-only patch to an installed osX! Is this right an the only difference? Sorry for half-spam Greetings, G-Man
  10. Finally!!!

    I'm doing the same like one other said it to me: Goggle for 'macosx_10.4.3_8f1111_for_dtk_userdvd.dmg' and you'll find what you need
  11. OS X install DVD

    Have you ever looked up there? http://wiki.osx86project.org
  12. OS X install DVD

    It is an install-DVD for MacOS X.4, based on x86. x86 doesn't mean you have files with *.exe. x86 also != windows. x86 is the processor architecture. Mac had it's own platform, the PPC-processors, the so called G-Processors (... G4, G5). Now they are switched to Intel and Intel prododuces x86-processors. That brings Mac highly near to a PC, but there are some difficults between a MacIntel and a regular PC. However, it's now possible to install MacOS X on your PC, with some tricks and it seems that you've found that Install DVD. I don't want to discuss the legality of this dvd you've bought/found, becuase there are only (as far as I know) MacOs x86 DVDs out there only for developers! Now you have this DVD, decide what to do. Maybe you try installing MacOsX!? Greetz, G-Man
  13. Questions on 10.4.3 fresh DVD install

    Thx for your information! I converted and patched the dvd successfully but i got some errors while installing. Maybe you want to have a look at this thread: http://forum.osx86project.org/index.php?showtopic=7552 Thanks again and greetings, G-Man
  14. FDISK Alternative?

    You can use a Linux-Live-Cd instead, like Knoppix. (www.knoppix.org) This Live-CDs have fdisk, too! The Patch does a Kernel Update. YOu can find more Details on the Authors WebSite (I don't know all reasons for that patch): EDIT: Removed content violating DMCA Greetz, G-Man
