  1. Toshiba Qosmio x505-Q893 install won't work!

    Just to follow up, the sleep enabler kext was never installed. I used MacDrive to access the HFS+ partition and went to the kexts folder and there was nothing there. But the install wont reboot. It freezes while booting in verbose mode. Not even the ModCD can boot it and if I try with [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url], the computer reboots itself while booting OS X in verbose mode.

    AWESOME! But.... the Karnel Panic happens BEFORE the installation of 10.6.7 completes. I'd say it keeps happening at about 95% completetion. So I have to hold the power button and power cycle the laptop. Even if I were to use something such as Macdrive 8 to access the HFS+ partition, wouldn't it be a broken install because it never completed? If not then I know how to remove the SleepEnabler kext easily.

    First of all, THANK YOU SO MUCH for the reply! I really appreciate it. And I apologize that this reply is coming so late. Before I saw that you had posted this, I went about it with another method that I figured out on my own. I download a retail 10.6.0 (NOT 10.6.3) DVD and stripped out (AppleFWAudio*,IOAudioFamily*,IOFireWire*,AppleMultitouchDriver*,Audio*) Ketxts inside /System/Library/Extensions from the DMG file and burned it to a dual layer DVD. I downloaded a copy of the latest Nawcom ModCD and booted Snow Leopard using it WITHOUT A SINGLE PROBLEM (very good boot cd) and installed Snow Leopard to a partition that I made. Everything went fine except that Nawcom ModCD adds chameleon bootloader which fails to boot up the new install. So I popped the Boot CD back in and booted using it. The install works FINE. No Audio because I removed some Audio Kexts and resolution isn't full, full, full, but it's acceptable. Then I began to follow the [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url]+[url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] instructions at (http://tonymacx86.blogspot.com/2010/04/[url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url]-[url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url]-install-mac-os-x-on.html). However, at the end of the 10.6.7 combo update install, my system KERNEL PANICS and it is unrecoverable. I'm going to have to reinstall from scratch for the third time now. I'm going to try those same steps in a few minutes with 10.6.3 instead. Let me know if you have a way to install 10.6.7 combo update without a problem. Thanj you. Also, this way is EXTREMELY stable. I used it for about 3 and a half hours installing all kinds of things and I even installed steam and played some games ONLINE and there was never a problem. No freezing or ANYTHING. I wish the synaptics touchpad worked with multitouch though. Like two finger scrolling.
  4. Hello, I am trying (and DEFINITELY not succeeding) in installing OSx86 on mt Toshiba Qosmio x505-Q893. I tried [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] and [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] legacy with both a 10.5.1 Retail Install DVD and a 10.6 Retail Install DVD and both fail at the DVD loading. I tried -V for verbose and -X for safe mode and ALL it does is reboot the computer. It happens so quick I can't even see what went wrong. Kalyway and iDeneb DVDs both do the same thing. I have found some articles online regarding x505 Laptops but none regarding this specific model and following those instructions HAVE NOT worked for me . Please help me. PLEASEEEEEE!

  5. I installed iPC 10.5.6 on my old Dell Optiplex GX620 without a hitch and everything works great. However, the PC has a Pentium 4 processor. I BOUGHT (i really did) photoshop CS5 for mac and didn't bother checking the minimum requirements. CS5 install went FINE the program even opens the Splash Screen but then a message shows up saying something about "This computer doest meet Photoshop CS5 minimum requirements" something like that and when i checked the minimum requirements on the adobe page, it states that you need to have more than one core. So my question is, is there any way I can manipulate system files to state that I have a pentium dual core or a core 2 duo or a quad i7, ANYTHING really I dont care i just want to be able to run the Program so i need photoshop cs5 to think i have more than one core.
  6. Ive installed ideneb 1.3 on a gateway laptop. install went flawless and then after the install the computer restarted and when it restarts and it gets past the chameleon bootloader, the gray screen comes on and the circular ring spins for 1 second and then it crashes. Ive tried starting it with -v but it crashes so fast that theres no time to see what the error is. It boots up again and starts all over
  7. I tried installing ideneb 1.3 10.5.5 on my hp laptop and it doesn't recognize my HD. Once I go into disk utilities to create a partition on my HD so that I can install osx there's no HD listed on the left side. I've also tried installing jas 10.4.8 and it also doesn't recognize my HD but unlike ideneb 1.3 it does recognize my DVD drive. But I can install to a DVD drive so that's useless. Any help please?
  8. Please i really want to know before diving into the job. And aslo i havent had much help from the HCL on the wiki. I have an HP Pavilion dv6707us laptop. Take a look here for specs if you dont wanna open the nfo: http://reviews.cnet.com/laptops/hp-pavilio...?tag=mncol;rnav And here is the CpuZ Dump file as .txt System_info_cpuz.txt
  9. Ok so i have an HP pavilion dv6707us laptop, and i have a version of iDeneb 10.5.5 and ive burned it to a dvd, and ive also gone into vista computer management and created a healthy partion of 30 gigabytes. Now is it possible to install 10.5.5 on that partion and NOT cause any damage to the already existing vista OEM partion? Also ive read of people messing with the vista boot.ini and making Leopard boot instead of vista. Im wanna fo the opposite. I rather have vista Boot up normally and have 10.5.5 as a "hobby" partion, so that whenever i want to play with it, ill just boot it and go about playing with it.
