    [Guide] XPS M1710 OS X Leopard

    Has any1 tried and/or been successful with SL 10.6 on the M1710?
  3. Help plz! Tearing my hair out!
  4. Hi all, I don't want to bore you with a long story, so I'll attempt to make it as short as possible. First off, I have successfully been using Kalyway's wonderful 10.5.2 on my XPS m1710 for about a year now. Started with 10.5.1 and updated and didn't see the need to go on, as it was working one hardware issue from perfect. The other day I wanted to use the new iWork 09 and the installer told me I needed to upgrade to 10.5.4 atleast. So, I updated using Kalyway's 10.5.3 Combo and it went very smooth (DID NOT install 9.3 kernel - kept the 9.2) All was well (seemed a little slower than my 10.5.2) untill I made a mistake. I saw somewhere to backup 4 or 5 .kext and reload them after install, one of them being AppleACPIPlatform.kext. This is where my problem comes in: After installing the 10.5.2 .kexts using KextHelper ("everything looks fine, cross your fingers and reboot") and rebooting, I now receive a grey screen calling on reboot and the kernel panic: panic(cpu 0 caller 0x00431CE1): "Unable to find driver for this platform: \ACPI\".\n'@/SourceCache/xnu/xnu-1228.3.13/iokit/Kernel/IOPlatformExpert.cpp:1405 Debugger called:<panic> Backtrace, Format - Frame : Return Address (4 potential args on stack) ~THEN THERE ARE 7 ROWS OF DEBUG INFO. IN THE FORM OF: 0x2debfdd8 etc... and underneath that is: Backtrace terminated-invalid frame pointer 0 I have been googling, insanelymac searching and begging my machine to no avail. Steps I have takin are: -Used "-f -x -v" flags - all resulting in the grey screen with "You need to restart your computer..." with the panic in the background -Booted into original Kalyway 10.5.1 DVD to see if I was possibly missing a kext (AppleACPIPlatform.kext not in Sys/Lib/Extensions folder = this is why I'm assuming (as well well as what the panic says) that it has something to do with AppleACPIPlatform.kext) -Booted into original Kalyway 10.5.1 DVD and used terminal to kextload AppleACPIPlatform.kext, but it gives me a message of something like "version 1.0.3 in com.apple.driver.AppleACPIPlatform differs from version 1.1.0 that attempted to load" -Old posts found on google call for pressing f8 at Darwin and typing "boot=APCI or boot=OSX86", but same results. Specs: Default kernel 9.2 OS 10.5.3 Kalyway Dell XPS m1710 Intel Core Duo 2gb Ram nVidia 7900gtx I'll do anything - even If I already have, but you think it'll do the trick. If it's an easy fix, please feel free to poke fun at me. Just PLEASE HELP, lol. P.S. I would just do a fresh install, but you know the story.. vital information that hasn't been backed up. (That'll change!)

    Please help!.. I have royally screwed up my sound. After attempting the headphones fix above I lost all sound, but reinstalled my backup appleHDA.kext which seemed to fix the problem. I then retried the headphones fix - again did not work (ALC268 Installer gets rid of output devices) - only this time, reinstalling the appleHDA.kext isn't helping. I found Taruga's appleHDA Patcher1.20 and went back to Taruga's first site (to get the sigmatel9200.txt). This is the problem - after dragging the .txt into the icon and entering my password I get this error: *Detected unsupported codec This was not an issue when I installed 10.5.1 and had to do this step. ..I've tried deleting all HDA kexts and attempted to drag sigmatel9200.txt into Taruga's Patcher v1.20 again to no avail.. (same error) Again, PLEASE PLEASE HELP! Edit: Come to find out, ALC268 (in the download folder) prevented me from installing sigmatel9200.txt. Deleted it and reinstalled the .txt with Taruga's Patcher. Shwooo.. was nervous.. Anyway, when I plug headphones in it still does not auto-mute internal speakers, but I do hear sound out of headphones. I'm hoping fr3ak! will update his guide soon (although it seems this has become somewhat of a dead post..)

    Did you have to change the "Boot cpus=1 flag", or does the kernel fix this automatically?

    I also lost all sound capabilities following these steps. My output devices are no longer shown in Audio settings. Ran ALC268 Installer 2 (worked), then deleted ALCInject.kext (deleted my output device), restarted, installed HDAEnabler.kext, fixed permissions and restarted. I am stuck on the step "make sure that Internal Speakers is selected in Audio Settings" because there ARE NO INTERNAL SPEAKERS ANYMORE! Is this all you did to make the Audio work perfectly? ..I was so close before (mute, subwoofer control), now I'm so far I'm still having fun getting this m1710 to near perfect hackintosh though! P.S. Has anyone noticed that http://wiki.taruga.net/ is down?? That really stinks because I now can't figure out how to get the audio back.. {censored}..

    Is anyone having issues with overheating/fans over-working?

    I had no idea most of everyone else w/ the M1710 doesn't have a wireless connection . I'm starting to feel very lucky! Yes. Before you install Kalyway X5.1, install the important drivers in Windows. They should be functioning in your Windows partition before you install OSX. Then install OSX on the assigned partition.

    You're right .. .. I fixed it in the post. I started with 2 partitions: a clean partition (prep'd for OSX) and my Windows partition. In Windows, before installing Kalyway 10.5.1, I installed all IMPORTANT drivers first (i.e. Wireless, Ethernet, Audio, Video, Touchpad - made sure all was working correctly). Then followed Fr3ak's wonderful 10.5.1 guide (no more, no less) on my OSX partition and my bluetooth and wireless functioned properly out-of-the-box. Then, I used the iAtkos/Kalyway 10.5.2 Update, updated kernals and still wireless works fine. Damn bluetooth...

    I am using - Ethernet: Broadcom NetXtreme Gigabit Ethernet PCI-E, 57XX Gigabit Integrated Controller. *Edit - Wireless: Dell Wireless 1500 Draft 802.11n WLAN Mini-Card Does your wireless work in Windows?

    ~"does the wirless work on your machine??" First off, thanks for the fix - this is GREAT! As for my wireless, I'm on the machine typing this right now - connected to a wireless router on my home network. So Yes, out of the box. Yours doesn't seem to be working?
