  1. ASUS G51VX- Anyone try this laptop yet?

    I'm afraid I can't recall exactly what was done to get iAtkos v7 installed. Had a friend of mine install it. I'm pretty sure he just chose the kext for the chipset, networking, and probably AHCI as well. As far as the bios the only thing that was changed was setting the sata drives to AHCI. After that I just followed the guide for setting up retail snow leo on a usb drive and that was it. http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=185823
  2. ASUS G51VX- Anyone try this laptop yet?

    Managed to get vanilla 10.6 installed to laptop. Used a working install of iAtkos 7i to restore the 10.6 dvd installer to an 8GB usb flash drive. Then used this pre-install automator for 10.6 found here to add a bootloader and extra kexts to the install. Worked like a charm. Still no wifi but everything else works great. Even managed to install it to an i7 920 PC as well.
  3. ASUS G51VX- Anyone try this laptop yet?

    *bump* Installed iAtkos 7i this morning. Just about everything works. Video, sound, wired ethernet, and even bluetooth works. No support yet for the Intel 5100 wifi card.
  4. ASUS G51VX- Anyone try this laptop yet?

    Got OSX 105.5 installed again. Talked with a friend that also runs a hackintosh. At least with the iDeneb 1.3 for sure just select AHCI fix, CPUS=1 fix, and the Intel ICHx driver. Typing on it right now. In the process of downloading the iDeneb 10.5.7 combo update and other drivers.
  5. ASUS G51VX- Anyone try this laptop yet?

    Had iDeneb 1.3 installed and it booted with cpus=1. Tried to update it which broke the install. And now trying to install it again but get hung up on the MAC Framework successfully initiated line. Mine is the G51VX-A1.
  6. [How To] X800 XL set up with working Display Manager and QE/CI

    Huzzah! QE and CI now enabled. But as a very new mac user having installed OS X last night and just got the networking enabled this morning I'd like to know what exactly Quartz Extreme and Core Image do. Just thought I'd ask since this thread involves enabling QE and CI.
  7. [How To] X800 XL set up with working Display Manager and QE/CI

    I also have a X800XL but neither step one or two seem to work. I followed step 1 to the letter and still couldn't change resolution. I'm using 10.4.4. Edit: Nevermind I fixed it. Turns out it was an edit to the com.apple.boot.plist file that prevented me from changing the resolution after step 1 was completed.
  8. Windows Vista Build 5456

    5456 is quite better than 5384. Of course there is still the problem with opengl games barely working and some direct3d game working and some not so much. It's beta so there's little point in complaining that something doesn't work. Other than that little bit about the games it's quite good. That said I think I'll switch back to XP64 until either vista is finished or I build a better pc.
  9. 10.4.3 8f1111 native install working 100%

    I also got it working on my Athlon64 system. Sata and ethernet doesn't work but I can fix one of those with an add-in card.
