  1. I recently installed Lion using the Kakewalk method, and evertything went smooth, except for sound. When the system resumes from sleep, the audio is full of crackles/pops. I have tried using different audio kexts, including the patched AppleHDA, HDA rollback, etc. I have moderate success using a Voodoo kext + a audio crackle fix (found here) which fixed the sleep issue, but there is a loud white noise coming through when playing anything at a moderately high volume. Right now, im at a loss as what to do next. Any help is appreciated.
  2. So I have Snow Leopard working pretty much perfect, except for one minor annoyance. It seems my gpu fan is always spinning at high speeds. If I scroll a web page, the fan speed increases as well. Any ideas to a fix?
  3. So I downloaded Paralells Desktop 4.0 and when I get to the install, I get that message. I tried the info.plst fix but the file contents are diffrent <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple Computer//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd"> <plist version="1.0"> <dict> <key>CFBundleDevelopmentRegion</key> <string>English</string> <key>CFBundleExecutable</key> <string>Parallels Installer</string> <key>CFBundleIconFile</key> <string>SmartInstall.icns</string> <key>CFBundleIdentifier</key> <string>com.parallels.smartinstall</string> <key>CFBundleInfoDictionaryVersion</key> <string>6.0</string> <key>CFBundleName</key> <string>Parallels Installer</string> <key>CFBundlePackageType</key> <string>APPL</string> <key>CFBundleShortVersionString</key> <string>1.0</string> <key>CFBundleSignature</key> <string>????</string> <key>CFBundleVersion</key> <string>1.0</string> <key>NSMainNibFile</key> <string>MainMenu</string> <key>NSPrincipalClass</key> <string>NSApplication</string> </dict> </plist> Any help is appreciated
  4. Ok, so Im running 2 hd's now, and I have osx installed on the primary hdd. When I try to install vista via the install cd, I get an error along the lines of "Windows cant find suitable install partition" or what not. Any ideas on how to install vista on the second hdd sucessfully?
  5. Sorry in advance if Im asking in the wrong forum.. be worth a shot. So Ive been running Leopard on my familys shared Compaq desktop for a couple months now and Ive loved every minute of it. Due to my family bitching about stupid errors and their unwillingless to use Leopard, I was told to reinstall Vista. Well.. some things went wrong (long story, dont care to eloborate ) so im not left with just Vista running on my HD. Now that you have a backstory, heres my problem. Before I installed Vista, I was using time machine (or at least attempting to do so) on my Western Digital (My Book) external hd. I backed up all my important stuff onto it (docs, music, mail, etc...). My problem is is that now vista isnt even showing it in "My Computer" Im thiking it has something to do with Time Machine formatting it as Journlaed or w/e. Any help will be apprciated Itd really suck to loose all my backups
