  1. @sm what would we say? "we dont like how our third-party card doesn't function well with our hacked operating system. give us the drivers or else!" lol sorry to be condescending, but i am one of the hopeless many also praying for qe/ci support with the x300. it would be truly awesome if someone could figure this out (and/or fix the mouse artifacting)

    CrArC, I finally got my Leopard installation up and running... to where it was before I bricked it at least. I ended up having to manually install video drivers for my card, in order to get any sort of video on the machine. I went through the hellish process again of trying to set up my network card, and finally got it to work. Check this out: I downloaded the same network driver as I had before, and manually added my network device id to the aforementioned info.plist (IONetworkingFamily.kext/Contents/PlugIns/AppleIntel8255x.kext/Contents/), rebuilt extensions cache and rebooted with -f ... no luck. What finally did it for me was removing (I guess it was older/defective/idk) the AppleIntel8255x.kext residing in /System/Library/Extensions. I didn't even have to reboot-- OS X alterted me that it had discovered a new network interface, added it to the list and gave me an address. Horray! Thanks for your help..turns out that minor detail was preventing any of it from working.

    Actually, I made a big mistake. I ended up installing some odd drivers (as a recommendation by an earlier poster) resulting in ruining my osx86 installation. I decided to start from scratch and reinstall everything, but for some reason don't have working video drivers. Why repeating the same install process yields two different results is beyond me, but I'm unable to give you a copy of the info.plist right now. I need a bit of time to figure out why I can't see things (on a different forum of course) and I'll get the file contents to you as soon as possible. Thanks a lot for everything so far.

    I had added the value to Info.plist located in /System/Library/IONetworkingFamily.kext/Contents/Plugins/AppleIntel8255x.kext/Contents before posting my message... but not to the Info.plist in /System/Library/IONetworkingFamily.kext/Contents I don't know if that makes a difference. Haven't tried booting with the -f flag; that'll be next. Is there anything else I can do? (Thanks so far)

    Intel PRO/100 VE NIC

    I just installed Kalyway 10.5.2 on my Dell e510 and are running into a couple issues: My network card is identified (in Windows) as: Intel® PRO/100 VE Network Connection \VEN_8086&DEV_27DC&SUBSYS_01Ab1028&REV_01\4&5855BE9&0&40F0 I used DPCIManager on OS X, which identifies the card as: 8086-27dc - 82801G (ICH7 Family) LAN Controller After inserting "0x27dc8086" to the aforementioned Info.plist file, the Networking System Preferences Applet does not display a "Built-In Ethernet" tab; it only displays Firewire. Any suggestions? I'm using the AppleIntel8255x.kext driver, and I've followed all the above instructions but to no avail. Any help at all would be appreciated.
