  1. Tablet Mac

    Why wait for Cupertino. http://www.boygeniusreport.com/2008/10/08/...-m912x-netbook/
  2. Check out this website to see how to install iATKOS v4i 10.5.4 onto the AAO: http://www.aspireoneuser.com/forum/viewtop...f=14&t=1505 You may be able to use some of the same procedures on your Kalyway install to get the audio and video to work. Card readers will not work using the iATKOS install either. Still being worked on. Good luck Dan
  3. Kalyway vs iATCOS distro

    I've had mixed results with both The Hackintosh in my signature didn't like iATKOS, but Kalyway installed without a hitch. Tried to install Kalyway on my Acer Aspire One. No Go. iATKOS installed without a problem. Decided to dual boot my homebuilt PC with the following specs: Gigabyte GA-956P-DS3 motherboard E6400 2.13Ghz Core2Duo Intel processor 2x1GB OCZ Platinum 800Mhz RAM PNY nVidia 7300GT PCI-e video card 300GB SATA WD Caviar drive with three partitions: WindowsXP SP3 on first 100GB partition, 2nd 100GB partition reserved for OSX, 3rd partition formatted FAT32 for easy sharing between XP and OSX. IDE DVD burner. I first tried to install iATKOS 10.5.4; it didn't install the correct kexts for my nVidia card and ALC883 sound chip. Kalyway 10.5.1 installed all of the correct kexts for my system. I've upgraded to 10.5.2 so far with everything still working. I highly recommend Darwin bootloader. My point is, it depends on what vendor system/components you are using. Go to the OSXx86 Project site at the top of the Forum page for guidance. Good Luck and have fun.
  4. This is my Hackintosh setup Gigabyte GA-965P-S3 v1 motherboard Intel 2.13Ghz Core2Duo E6400 2x1GB Crucial 400Mhz DDR2 300GB SATA Maxtor HDD nVidia 7300GT 256MB Dual boot Windows XP/OSX with Darwin bootloader; XP on first 100GB partition, OSX on second 100GB partition, third partition for files. Upgraded a Kalyway 10.5.3 installation that had the USB mount problem. After upgrading to 10.5.4 with Mysticus C* update, everything functions normally, including USB mount. Will be upgrading the system in my signature after this. Thank you Mysticus C*

  6. Leopard on Acer Aspire?

    Yes. Just make a list of components that is in your PC, such as the nVidia 8600GS (sound chip or card, network card, chipset, USB chip, Northbridge chip, etc) then check out the OSx86 Project site at http://wiki.osx86project.org/wiki/index.php/Main_Page to see what drivers others used that worked, and what tweeks they did. Good Luck.
  7. iATKOS 10.5.4 DVD release

    I've installed iATKOS 10.5.4 on two PCs, an Acer Aspire One and a homebuilt Hackintosh with a Gigabyte GA-965P-S3 motherboard and I have the same problem with both. When I try to install Norton Antivirus (Yes, I know, Macs don't need an AV, but bear with me) all of my drives have the red "x" across them, meaning that I cannot install the program on any of them. When I choose my OS X drive I get a message stating that the program needs the BSD package installed. WTF! Is the complete BSD subsystem installed with iATKOS? I deleted iATKOS, installed Kalyway 10.5.1 on my Hackintosh, and was able to install Norton AV. Anybody else having this problem with any other programs?
  8. Maybe that's why Psystar keeps changing their address. You have to find them to serve them with legal papers. On a different subject. Everyone needs to remember that Apple makes the hardware and software for their systems. OK, the computers are made in China and the software is based on BSD, but I digress. Because Apple controls the hardware and software, Macs just work (Usually, but I digress again). Apple only has to write software and drivers that work with their systems; there is more integration and less likelyhood of software conflicts. Microsoft, along with hardware vendors, has to write software that works on several processors (Intel, AMD, Via), motherboards, BIOSs, video cards, sound cards, and other chips, and everything has to play together nicely, or BSOD. Apple only has a handful of each to write for. We should all remember that because Apple uses a UNIX like OS, and is open sourced, programmers like the ones we have on this forum have the *nix background to rewrite the software to work on non-Apple hardware. Some of you on the forum remember when OSX first came out for the Intel processor. If fact it was leaked onto the internet the next day. People were trying to get it to run on non-Apple computers. First in VMWare, then on hardware almost identical to a Mac, then on nonspec Apple hardware, and finally EFI was cracked, opening the doors. Second, I would like to speak to the posters on this forum who keep bellyaching that Apple should make this; Apple should make that; Apple should make OSX run on a 286; Apple should.............ARRGH! JUST QUITE YUR BITCHIN!!!! Apple is a company, and a company is suppose to make MONEY, and right now they seem to be doing that very well right now. Steve Jobs has a plan for where Apple needs to go, and if that doesn't include mid-priced computers with expandability, so be it. Get over it! Finally. Apple knows we are here. Apple probably has every ISO ever bittorrented and has dissected them. Apple could probably make it extremely difficult to install OSX on Hackintoshes, but don't. Why would that be? Maybe Apple is, indirectly, using OSx86 Project as a testbed for new software or hardware, spoonfeeding us for their amusement and pleasue (Any conspiracy theorists around here?) More than likely, its probably that Apple may see most people here as potential customers who will see how great Macs are and actually buy one. OK, I'm getting off of my pulpit to pass the plate around. Please donate from your heart. Dan
  9. Tom's Hardware posted an article about Psystar. http://www.tomshardware.com/news/psystar-openmac-apple,5205.html In it they actually spoke to Rudy Pedraza, President of Psystar. TH questioned Pedraza about whether he knew about the OSx86 Project, which he said "of course". Pedraza stated that there’s a misunderstanding with the folks behind OSx86 Project. Pedraza said that "Psystar’s lawyers are in discussion with OSx86, otherwise we can’t comment." TH also referred to Netkas (incorrectly, I assume) as the company who developed the EFI emulator. Gee, a company with one employee. Hey Netkas, can I buy stock in your company? I would like to thank Netkas for his hard work and dedication to the OSx86 Project, along with the others, who have made it possible for someone with no programing skills whatsoever to enjoy this outstanding OS. Keep up the great work!
  10. Well someone on Uneasysilence has OSX running on the EeePC. Read here http://uneasysilence.com/archive/2007/11/12654/ Because of the specs, Tiger runs better than Leopard. HEY APPLE! Why don't you just buy an upgraded version from Asustek, slap your logo on it, and call it the Macbook Mini.
  11. UpHuck....WTF

    marcfantastic, There is a company that paid programmers to develop an OS that missed its release dates, not date, but dateS. And when it did come out, it was a POS! The software is so bad that hordes of users webt back to a previous version that was less of a POS. Can you guess who I am referring to? I am in agreement with others on this post, uphuck is doing this because he wants to, not because he is being paid for it. People that do things for the love of it usually make a better product, and get it right the first time.
  12. That's what happens when you don't do a Forum Search.
  13. Last week I was reading about the Eee PC officially launching in Taiwan on October 16 and appearing in the US by the end of this month at such outlets as Best Buy and Newegg. For those unfamiliar with this system, it is an ultralight laptop unveiled at Computex 2007 with an initial price of $199; the price since has risen. One of its interesting features is the inclusion of a flash hard drive instead of a platter drive. Following are some links for more information: http://www.notebookreview.com/default.asp?newsID=3829 http://www.translate.ru/url/tran_url.asp?l...mp;psubmit2.y=0 The reason I posted this is for the specifications listed on the Russian site: Processor - Intel Celeron M 900 MHz ULV, cache L2 of 256 Mb, FSB 400 MHz Chipset - Intel NG82910GMLE/NH82801FBM Video - Integrated Intel 910GMLE Express I am curious on whether this laptop could have OSX successfully installed on it. If so, it could become the Powerbook Mini that has been speculated/theorized/wished for by the Mac community but not built by Apple. Of course, it will be awhile until the system is in the hands of consumers. What do you think?
  14. It is possible to dual boot different versions of OSX on a Hackintosh, on separate partitions on the same drive. Just make sure that you give different names for the partitions. The last version installed will be the boot drive. To change drives/versions, go into the System Preferences and choose the boot device.
  15. geez, Your definitely a Windoze person. Safe mode in OSX, or on a real Mac, (or Windows) just doesn't load the extensions (drivers). If you hit F8 and type -x as you described you will boot into safe mode. On a Mac, you boot into safe mode by pressing down on the spacebar after the "bong" sound, which you can't do on a Hackintosh. As you know, you can go into safe mode in Windows by pressing down on the shift key while it is loading.
