  1. Or pull the drive out, put it in a USB to SATA adapter, and use migration assistant like that.
  2. Kext´s for Nvidia GTS250?

    What IanT said: Chameleon's built in enabler. I've got 10.6.4 running the 250GTS 1GB without problems and without kexts or anything. If you've been messing around with different methods, you're best bet is to reinstall everything. And do NOT install anything special as far as drivers for video. The standard OS X Kexts work: just enable graphics through Chameleon. If you manually set your resolution, you're basically hiding the fact the OS can't use the card natively which is why you're stuck at one resolution. Resintall, use Chameleon, and follow the instructions for enabling graphics. You don't need anything extra.
  3. Does anyone have MobileMe

    You have to set it up on the iPhone first, then it'll let you locate it. But since you lost your phone without setting up MobileMe, your kinda screwed. Sorry man
  4. Apple seems to charge a premium for video cards, I imagine the volume of mac-specific cards they sell must be low. Anyway, I got both NVidia cards working with just the GraphicsEnabler=Yes. I also seem to have accelerated H.264 QT and CUDA support, although I'm not sure why QT has HW acceleration since it's not a 9400, 320M, or 330M. But it works As for the OP's question about not having a Mac running 10.5: I think you can use a Ubuntu Boot-CD to boot up in Ubuntu and do the same things, or can use the steps in this guide that utilizes Windows; http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=137296 Let me know if you get stuck anywhere
  5. Half Life for Mac - 1984 ad spoof

    I've been playing HalfLife2 for the last hour… Fkn amazing game, and it's running perfectly on my machine with all options on high.
  6. Here's a post on how to install on the P5Q board; http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php...=213336&hl= Yea, I agree - Even thought my system is working perfectly, using one of those Gigabyte boards seems to be the easiest way to do it. I saw a couple threads with pre-packaged drivers specifically made for those boards making installation a snap. However, if you already have a p5q board, the link above should be enough to get you functional in X.
  7. So far I haven't had any problems with software update in 10.6 - My system is a full retail install, with only the bare minimum of kexts and extras to boot. The fewer modifications you need to make to the system, the more likely you'll be able to update without problems. It goes without saying to check the board before applying an update too - See if anyone else has tried it and what happened before you go installing it.
  8. I've got the P5Q-SE, it'll work fine. I think a reason to go with these parts is that they're cheap and work. And I'm still happy with the speed of this rig a year after I built it, and the next upgrade I'm making is picking up a Q9400 or Q9450. I think I replied to you in another post, but definitely go with a 8GB USB stick instead of the DVD. Use the custom BIOS & search for a post on the p5q install here, there are a couple threads that lay it out. And I'd go with a NVidia card, I originally had a 9600GT and just recently upgraded to the GTS250. Both work great.
  9. Building a Hackintosh

    I've got the P5Q-SE board with a E7200 Core 2 Duo. Got 4GB of 1066 ram and a Nvidia 250GTS 1GB, but I started this off with a 9600GT. It works perfectly except the lan, but that's cause I got lazy and put in a gigabit PCI card that works without any drivers. Sound seems to work, but I use a USB sound system so I cannot be sure. I used the custom bios, put the chameleon boot loader on the drive using a MacBook and a USB to SATA adapter, then in theory you can boot the machine from the hard drive and selected the DVD to boot from. One catch - and I can't confirm this anymore - but I had a real problem booting from an ATA DVD drive. I had to get a SATA DVD drive, still had problems, and ended up making a bootable USB stick from the DVD to install it. So I recommend using a 8GB USB Flash drive instead of the DVD to install.

  11. Logitech Bluetooth Dongle

    Guys - The thing with this dongle is that it has two modes - One is where it emulates a PS/2 mouse USB connection, which is just for one logitech product. But the mode we want is the regular bluetooth mode, where you can connect everything. The trick is to hold the red button down and plug it in and keep holding it for about 5 seconds. Then you should see the bluetooth icon in your menubar and system preferences, and it'll work just like any other bluetooth dongle. Problem is, each time you unplug it you gotta do this trick again - It doesn't stay in that mode. BTW - I'm using the dongle that came with the PC dinovo edge.
  12. You can't tell the difference... It's fast and stable once you get it all sorted out. It looks like you're in luck; http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=170433
  13. Updated from 10.5.7 to 10.5.8 using Software Update - Using Core 2 Duo E7200 on P5Q-SE board w/ BIOS mod. The Kernel updated to 9.8.0, built in audio's not working after reboot ( Audigy 2 is in Sound, but also not producing audio ), machine rebooted 2x after update, otherwise it seems ok.
  14. Installing OSX on PC, can it be done?

    It looks like you could - I suggest downloading iDeneb ( Or another... I just have had good luck with iDeneb ) and giving it a shot. Make sure you put your SATA Drives in AHCI mode in the bios first... Good luck!
