  1. Hi there, I'm a bit of a noob to all this so please excuse me if i'm asking something that's been answered elsewhere but.. I installed OSX using iAktos 1.0ir2 on my DELL Vostro 1400 laptop and I have it working other than a few niggles I was wondering if anyone could help me with... I cannot get the audio to work with the built in sound. I have tried HDA patcher and the patched AppleHDA.kext that macgirl posted a link to on the first page of this thread, but it always says no sound devices are installed. If I select shut down from the apple menu, osx shuts down but the laptop is still powered up. I have to press and hold the power button to get it switch off? Can I go ahead and install the 10.5.4 update from apples website or will it screw up my installation? I am liking OSX so far though, it is seriously tempting me to get a mac for my next desktop pc.

  2. Dell Vostro 1500 Mega Thread

    Descalzo, Yeah it is hanging after i have installed and the green tick has displayed on the screen. I used the guide http://msalmank.blogspot.com/2008/03/installing-os-x-leopard-on-my-intel-pc.html to get the dual boot with Vista working and it all goes smoothly until I boot up Leopard for the first time, where it hangs on the grey apple screen. I installed the bootloader and all sub options, and also the Broadcom 440x driver, but I have tried all sorts of combinations. Like I say when i boot with -v it gets stuck on 'NTFS driver 2.0 [Flags: R/o].' It's really frustrating because it's nearly there! Any help/advice you can give would be much appreciated!
  3. Dell Vostro 1500 Mega Thread

    Hi, I have been reading this thread and others on this forum with interest. I have a Vostro 1400 and have tried to install Leopard onto it using iAktos1.0ir2. Whenever I boot into Leopard it just hangs at the grey apple screen. If I run it with -v the line it appears to be stuck on is NTFS driver 2.0 [Flags: R/o]. I have Vista Business on another partition. I created a new volume from within Vista and formatted that as journalled extended and have tried several times to get Leopard to run. It never gets further than the grey apple screen. Any ideas folks? Dean
