  1. Intel 845

    Well,guys,I could figure out the patch on the dvd.It is Semjaza v1.2 Decrypts.
  2. Intel 845

    Hi guys,I have been trying to install OS X 10.4.6 from a dvd(which I found accidentally) on a intel 845,p4 2.4 GHz,no videocard system.I am not sure of the patch applied on it.But I have been having the following weird problems: 1)If I install OS X on a primary partition which is not active,the mbr of the hfs+ partition is nulled.A valid bootable mbr is written only if the partition is primary and active or if it is a logical partition 2)If I install OS X from vmware on my actual harddisk or on a virtual hard disk,the installation goes smoothly with out any problems but when I try to boot it,I get the error which asks me to reset the system in several languages.I booted in verbose mode and found that it hangs after a kernel panic. 3)If I install OS X natively on my computer,the installation stops midway while installing essential packages and says please try installing again. I am also unsure of the compatibility of 10.4.6 on my system but 10.4.3(10.4.38f111a) was running smoothly witout any problems.Can some one confirm the compatibility of intel 845 mother board with 10.4.6(I didnt find it on the wiki) and if it is compatible,I will give more details on my system configuration so that my mistakes can be pointed out by some one. Thanks guys.

    Hi guys n gals,this is my computer configuration: P4 2.4GHz(no HT) ac97 onboard audio sse3 cpu. I dontexactly know what info to give but i will if you tell me what to give. I used the macosx_10.4.3_8f1111_for_dtk_userdvd.dmg file with the patch file 1111a.Generic.Patch.v4.2b.zip Checked the md5sums they are allright. Burned the iso to a DVD +RW at speed 4x and it said SAM multimedia READ or WRITING failed,Asc=0x11,Ascq=0x00;Disk1s2:I/O error.this message comes several times when I tried it natively When i tried booting the image in vmware,It came to the famous kernel panic,waiting for debugger device thing and finally gave restart in five or so languages. Could any one kindly point out my errors and correctme????????
  8. What kind of an assurance do you expect one to give you??On the other hand I think you can consider the option of upping it through a proxy to rapidshare or megaupload or any such thing than some one's private ftp.
