  1. ok chameleon is a boot loader that has a very friendly UI pretty much a spitting image of bootcamp (no mouse support unlike bootcamp) that is specifically built for PCs (hackintoshs) that allows users to boot into any OS installed including Mac OS X on your machine, now what makes chameleon so good is that it is very open source so you can add / edit code very easily. For example you could tell chameleon about your graphics card so you get the best quality possible, and same applies to sound and network card also known as Drivers if you are speaking in windows terms. another feature that i like about chameleon that came in the RC4 release is that you can hide specific drives while booting so that you don't have the click the left and right button so many times while trying to boot if you want to know about chameleon just go to the official chameleon page which will be your best resource...
  2. you have got to be joking right.... have you never herd of the word google or bing...
  3. A note to everyone using this board if your sound is not working at ALL it is because of SleepEnabler.kext if you delete it will work but you will experience issues with your mac of course, i am still trying to locate what exactly is causing this issue and will report back to everyone really soon thanks
  4. Hey I am currently on the 10.6.2 and i install ntfs-3g with macFUSE to get r/w permissions with ntfs drives, i have come across that ntfs-3g does not work at all if you have chameleon rc4 install on my pc and does anyone know a way around this so i can use both..

    see that i386 at the end that means that you are not in 64bit you are still in 32bit
  9. [TOTALLY VANILLA] Retail Snow Leopard

    to either in 64bit there are 2 wasy the fast way is when you load up your boot screen to chose your HD to boot from type in "-x64" and then press enter then you are booting up with the 64bit kernal. there is also another is edit your com.apple.boot file in /e/ and ad in <key>Kernel Flags</key></string>-x64</string> and this will automatically boot in the 64bit every load i also should point out, to make sure that you truely are in 64bit kernal do the following: open terminal and type in command "uname -a" this will load of the kernal info now i am using 10.6.2 at the moment so something may differ a bit Darwin *************.local 10.2.0 Darwin Kernel Version 10.2.0: Tue Nov 3 10:35:19 PST 2009; root:xnu-1486.2.11~1/RELEASE_X86_64 x86_64 <---- SEE THIS IF IT HAS THE 86_64 YOU ARE CONFIRMED that you are using a 64bit kernal if it says something like i386 then that is obviously still using the 86/32 but kernal
  10. look their is really no reason to move to efi strings if you have full graphics support there is no point at all. but if you really much in your boot.apple.com files in Snow Leopard HDD under extras add your graphics efi string in their but it is a really risky process so be carefull
  11. Boot resolution dosn't change

    sometimes depending on the hardware there is no need to edit anything ie: my Apple Display uses full resolution when booting which is because its using proper legit apple hardware. So yea wait around until someone brings out a fix or something which would be really good cause i love using my 24" HD monitor
  12. Startup screen resolution( solved )

    thats cause its legit apple hardware you are using, thats is easily explains why you are getting proper res
  13. Boot resolution dosn't change

    my best bet is that you are using a DVI or HDMI cable from PC to Monior, if this is the case then there is no need to worry this happens to everyone and even though you have said you want it to boot at this resolution it will just ignore it and there is no solution that i know off , if you are using a VGA cable on the other hand then it will use the resolution that you said you wanted it to be.
  14. you are not the only one, i had to manually upgrade to 9.0.2 from 0.1, my update software app is working fine cause it is picking up other updates ie: ilife, iwork and others
  15. did you by any chance switch to AHCI when xp was installed and if you did that will be the problem, sometimes it will work but in most cases the only solution its a fresh install issue but i think that there is a fix so just have a look around the net
