  1. Lifehacker Guide with GA-EP45-UD3P Motherboard

    Lifehacker guide works great on my Sony Vaio CR490. The only problem I have is not able to display the "About This Mac" When clicking on it, the screen flashes for a second or two and then it takes me back to the Desktop. Anyone knows how fix this? thanks
  2. Still no luck with my Dell Inspiron 6400. Just a gray spinning wheel with apple logo. I got it working great on my Sony Vaio cr490 but the "About this Mac" does not work. the screen fades for a few seconds and then it takes me back to the desktop.
  3. Anyone has any luck with the instruction above? I followed it step-by-step 3 or 4 times and still no luck. It shows the apple logo and the spinning wheel, that's about it. System Specs Dell Inspiron 6400 Firmwawre A09 INTeL Centrino DUO T2050 @ 1.60ghz 2GB RAM
  4. Leopard Laptops with NON-working GMA X3100

    Thanks guys. Everyone has been very helpful but I'm still stuck at the grey screen. I'm using Kalyway 10.5.2 DVD. I got it to multi-boot with VISTA/XP/UBUNTU but Leopard is still not working. I have a SONY VAIO CR490 with the GMA X3100 video card. I have read through this thread several times and a few other threads and still unsuccessful. Also, my FN+F7 to switch to external monitor is not working for some reason. I can't get pass the grey screen to replace those files. I gave up in booting it with legacy or safe mode or verbose. How do I manually delete all GMA* kext & AppleIntelIntegratedFramebuffer and install GMAX3100 from Ubuntu 8? Is it possible. Thanks for any info
