    Help me recover OS X please!

    Ok... seems it was because I chose NST, and should have picked MBR... Now it works *but* there is still one little glitch there.,, on startup I have the menu, and the option to choose Windows 7 and Mac OS X Leopard. If I pick Windows 7, it boots fine. If I pick Mac OS X, it does go into my old friend Darwin, however for some reason it now defaults to booting the windows partition (it used to default to OS X) and that of course brings me to a loop (if left alone of course, if I manually pick OS X it boots that and now comes up fine). So I guess the last cleanup I need is how do I change what Darwin uses as default, and also can I remove the timer or make it really short like 1-2 seconds? Thanks all.

    Almost worked... however, after adding the entry and booting into OS X, I just get a light blue solid screen...

    Help me recover OS X please!

    Thanks PippoX0, Before trying that I stumbled onto this thread: I did this: Booted msi OS X install disc in single mode and ran: fdisk -e /dev/rdisk0 update flag 2 write quit reboot And got Darwin back. Now I can leave it to boot OS X, which works fine, or select the windows option, but if I choose it now Windows doesn’t star and gives an errror stating that windows failed to start and: ”the boot selection failed because a required device is inaccessible”... Was there an easy way to fix this now that it’s so close..? (doing the above again but flagging the first partition has windows booting again but of course with no os x selection/booting)

    You are right, however, have you read my post? Is the hardware relevant for this specific issue? Come on now...

    Help me recover OS X please!

    Hopefully there are people smart enough to know what an MSI Wind has inside, and from past experiences this place is filled with people that are nice and helpful and not di*ks. Go on now, I’m sure there are tons of other signature-less posts for you to fill your empty life with...

    Help me recover OS X please!

    I actually did read the rules, and saw some nice guidelines regarding signatures. It doesn’t state anywhere it’s mandatory to have one?

    I’m sorry, I don’t undertstand what the point of your comment is...
  8. Hi all, I have an MSI Wind Netbook in which I happily had a dual boot with Windows XP and OS X 10.5. There is one partition for Windows and one for OS X. As XP was showing it's age and being impractical, I decided to replace it with Windows 7 to give the machine a boost. While I knew I would lose the ability to boot into OS X after installing Win 7, I though I remembered how to fix/repair this. Boy was I wrong... So here I am after searching with no results to ask for help to see if someone can guide me as to how to run a repair or whatever it was to be able to get Darwin back with the 2 choices to boot either on startup. (of course if there's a different way too, I would gladly welcome it.). Thanks!!

    ATI Radeon HD pkg installers 10.5.x & 10.6

    Hi lastexile, tried looking for you on irc but dudn't find you anyway, i checked all the ATI* kexts to make sure the device ws right, and it was. Also correct in natit.kext when i get the blue screen, i know the desktop's there. If i click the power button, right before going to "sleep", the imAge appeRs and I see it. Also tried deleting all ATI* kexts and video returns (basic of course) so it's definately a driver issue.

    ATI Radeon HD pkg installers 10.5.x & 10.6

    Hey Guys, can anyone help me out? Specs: Asus M2N32-SLI Deluxe motherboard Athlon X2 3600+ cpu Sapphire HD2600 pro 512 PCIe gfx I installed ipc 10.5.6 final, selecting my card. Upon startup, I get a blue screen with a movable mouse pointer. Installed again without choosing gfx card, it works, and of course I have the basic 1024x768 resolution, no QE, etc. I installed the package for my card, and after rebooting, again I get that blue screen + mouse pointer. How do I fix this?? Thanks!!
  11. Uhmm.. that actually works NOW, what do you mean "hopefuly in the future" ?

    Broadcom 570x and 575x

    a network card basically looks at a packet and checks if the destination MAC address matches it's own. If it does, it passes the packet up in the stack, if it doesn't, it just discards it. In promosicuous mode, it basically doesn't care what the destintation MAC is, and takes all packets it sees. This mode is the one that programs such as packet capture software put your card into. No problem with that at all.... (except maybe a bit more work work for the stack, but if you're behind a swtich or router it won't matter cause all you'll get is basically packets destined to you anyway...) Later!

    What makes you paranoid about promiscuous mode? Do you even know what that is....?
  14. Hi guys, calling out for help/advice for a fresh new install of Leopard. According to some reading I've done around, in theory, with the hardware I set up to install leopard on, I should be able to get a vanilla install of Leopard, to get as close as possible to the real thing and dl updates and such. Now I'm not sure exactly what is the best way/method to get this accomplished, and that's why I'm seeking some adviced from the more experienced users out there. What image do you think would be the best for me to use in this case? (with the harware specified below). Any specific install options (or any to avoid!)? What fixes/updates or whatever should I add? This is the hardware in question: Processor: Intel E4600 (Core 2 Duo 2.4 Ghz) Motherboard: Intel DG31PR ------> Specs: http ://www.intel.com/products/desktop/moth...R-overview.htm Memory: 2 GB Corsair 800Mhz in dual channel config Video Card: Sapphire ATI HD 2600 pro with 512MB -----> Specs: http://www.sapphiretech.com/us/products/pr...d=180&grp=3 Not sure if I should specifiy anything else, I guess that's the important stuff... All help/advice is greatly appreciated!!!
